 Gintama
 Gintama

Gintama
Company: TV Tokyo
Summary: 
In the early 17th century, Japan adopted strict isolation policies and severed almost all ties with foreign countries. In 1853, the US fleet commanded by Admiral Perry forced the doors open, leading to a modernization of the nation's sociopolitical systems and the eventual fall of the Shogunate. The samurai regime ended its life with the imperial restoration in 1868. That's what history tells, but in Gintama, that's not what happens. Instead of the US fleet, the country is stormed by spaceships coming from four corners of the universe and soon we see it occupied by extraterrestrials. The Shogunate has become a puppet of alien occupation armies. All samurais have been disarmed and reduced to temp workers with no skills who just try to make ends meet. Gintama is a story of a handyman named Gintoki, a samurai with no respect for rules set by the invaders, who's ready to take any job to survive. He and his gang, however, are also among the very few who have not forgotten the morale of a swordsman. Wherever they go, all they do is to create troubles. Troubles that they of course try to solve, but in reality...

Keima receives an e-mail offering him a contract to "capture" girls. When he accepts it thinking it is an invitation to a game play, a demon from hell nicknamed Elsee shows up. She asks for his cooperation to help her in hunting evil spirits on the run. These spirits hide themselves inside the lonely girls' heart, and Elsee suggests that the only way to force the spirits out is to "capture" their hearts, by making them fall in love and filling up the hollows which the runaway spirits hide in. Just the kind of job for the Devine Capturer!

Interested only in 2D girls, however, Keima is appalled by the idea and refuses the assignment. He has no romantic real life experiences whatsoever. Nevertheless, with the contract already executed, Keima has no choice but to help Elsee no matter what; if they fail, it is Elsee and Keima who will lose their heads.

I've checked out Stein;Gate, Nichijou, Hanasaku and We Without Wings so far and have enjoyed them all to varying degrees.  Exorcist and Deadman weren't really on my radar but since they'll be on CR I might give them a watch eventually just to see what all the fuss is about.

It's a shame [C] didn't get picked up by CrunchyRoll... I really wanted to watch that series.

The second series I seen that has the theme "exorcists." The first one was D. Gray Man. That one was actually great but, sadly, it did not get much spotlight. Shonen's Bleach and Naruto are more well-known.

Whoo! It's Fairy Tail. Yes!

Edit: Stein;Gate looks interesting. I hoping to see a dark anime like Lain.

@sora_thekey:  It looks like Funimation will be simulcasting [C].

In addition to that, the Anime Network is simulcasting Maria Holic Alive, and Tiger & Bunny is being streamed on Hulu.
