Bigheart711's Pick: My pick is Haganai: I Don't Have Many Friends because it's one of the things that I haven't checked out yet that has an interesting premise. It's about how a couple of poor unfortunate souls that have had it with their lack of a social life at school manage to create a school club for people who hardly made any friends at all, just like them. I hope it suits my interest very well on the long run. :)
Recent high school transfer student Hasegawa Kodaka is pathetically inept at making friends. When he comes across the brash loner Mikazuki Yozora, who typically chats with her imaginary friend, the two outsiders become the unlikeliest of allies. Realizing that they have no hope of a normal social life, the two outcasts decide to form a group called "The Neighbor’s Club" in order to make friends and maybe even learn a thing or two about social skills. A wild and offbeat comedy about social outcasts who are obsessed with fandom.
Takashichea's Pick: I have to choose Hentai Prince and the Stony Cat as my pick this week because of the title. It sounds like the recent Disney film I forgot to rent for my siblings, the Princess and the Frog. Plus, the word "hentai" in its title makes me curious about the contents. The art design with the girl makes me go "d'aww".
Yokodera Youto is a boy from a local school academy whose mind is focused on his "carnal desires" - the only problem is that no one recognizes him for the pervert he is! When he hears an urban legend about a stony cat statue that can grant his wishes, he prays that he'll be able to speak his perverted mind wherever and whenever he needs to. Just wait and see how this stony cat grants his wish!
Story by Okomeken and Art by Sou Sagara.
Sora_thekey's Pick: My pick this week is Children Who Chase Lost Voices. The idea of having communication with what seems to be "limbo" through radio sounds awesome. I really want to watch this movie.
When she hears a strange song from a crystal radio, Asuna tunes into more than just a magical stream of music. Soon, she is transported to a mysterious world where mythical beasts roam and brave warriors fight for their lives. Agartha is a land of breathtaking beauty and unimaginable danger - a place where, it is believed, even the dead can be brought back to life. But at what cost?
Special Features: Interviews, The Making of, Japanese Promo Video, Japanese Teasers, The Works of Makoto Shinkai.
Spoken Languages: English, Japanese, English subtitles.
