Welcome everyone! It's the 2nd week of February, and wow, time is flying fast. We have a small batch of releases full of adorable, little girls (MM! and Strike Witches) and one Shojo series (Kamisama Kiss). Personally, I haven't tried any of these shows. I would love to hear folks' recommendations on these anime series.
MM! is a harem series, and judging from the cover and synopsis, it's strange to see a masochistic male lead. I can't imagine loli girls abusing the lucky guy in this show. Strike Witches looks like Girls Und Panzer except rocket boots for feet. Kamisama Kiss reminds me of Spice and Wolf except it's a wolf guy not a fox lady. Forgive me, I'm a noob in anime.

|MM! - Complete Collection (Blu-Ray)|
There are twisted tales and twisted tails, but few are as twisted as poor Sado's, who's just realized that he LIKES being made miserable. Of course, knowing that only makes him more miserable, which in turn. Well, you get the idea. Desperate to break the perverse cycle, Sado volunteers for a special club where he hopes he can work through his issues. And though he probably should have expected as much, imagine his consternation when he discovers that the other members have equally. complex. issues to deal with. For example, the hyper-aggressive club president Isurugi not only has a violent fear of cats, but also believes herself to be a god! Then there's Yuno, who's terrified of men; the nurse who forces other people to perform cosplay; and Hayama, Sado's best friend and a compulsive cross-dresser, who's also the girl that Sado is infatuated with.
(We did say it was complex, remember?) If you think you've seen EVERYTHING that can happen in an anime, prepare to have your eyes opened to FULL anime size as you enter a whole new paradigm with MM! (it's pronounced "Emu Emu!")!

Nanami was just a normal high school girl down on her luck until a stranger's lips marked her as the new Land God and turned her world upside down. Now, she's figuring out the duties of a deity with the help of Tomoe, a reformed fox demon who reluctantly becomes her familiar in a contract sealed with a kiss. The new responsibilities-and boys-are a lot to handle, like the crow demon masquerading as a gorgeous pop idol and the adorable snake spirit who's chosen the newly minted god to be his bride. As the headstrong Tomoe tries to whip her into shape, Nanami finds that love just might have cute, pointed fox ears. With romance in the air, will the human deity be able to prove herself worthy of her new title?
