Happy Birthday Dear Anime Network

It's hard to carm "Anime Network" into the birthday song.

Sick of all the fansub debates du jour? Do something undebatable: watch some anime for free, legally. The Anime Network online is running another day in which all of their premium content is free, and it's today! This time it's in honor of their 7th birthday, although past occasions were Lazy Day and Labor Day.

The network has also added some new shows for your enjoyment today: Blue Drop, Polyphonica, and Special A. I'm interested in trying some more of Blue Drop, and I can reasonably recommend Special A if you're looking for some fun shoujo comedy. You've got from noon (CST?) today, which has already passed, until noon tomorrow, so get on it! Here are TAN's blurbs on the new shows:
Blue Drop - New student, Mari Wakatake, is a girl without a past. Five years earlier, an accident took the lives every of other human on Kamioki Island, but left Mari alive with no memories. But if Mari’s past is an unknown nightmare, her future may soon become even more terrifying. The subjugation of Earth has begun, and the heart of one young woman may be the key to the human race’s ultimate salvation or destruction!

Polyphonica - Phoron Tatara’s no ordinary musician, he is one of the rare Dantists who can summon elder spirits using music called Commandia. Along with his spirit partner, the infamous Corticarte Apa Lagranges, this dynamic duet travel the continent of Polyphonica, orchestrating rescues and generally fixing whatever’s baroque!

Special A - At age six, Hikari Hanazono was the best at everything, until she lost a wrestling match to Kei Takishima. Ever since, Hikari’s entire life has been dedicated to beating Kei at anything. Now, in their very exclusive high school, she’s right behind him as number two. Get ready for whole new level of ridiculously dysfunctional relationships as Boy Meets Girl inevitably turns into Boy Beats Girl.
