Super Sonico The Animation

Despite all expectations, Super Sonico, the titular character, is not the large-breasted pink-haired oaf of a girl we see plastered over the previews but rather the pair of "headphones" attached to the poor child. The Sonico headphones affixed itself to the host while she was still a child. The immediate result turned the host child's hair pink. During puberty, Sonico released an excess amount of a certain hormone which caused the girl to gain an exuberant volume of fat in the chest. Continued alterations to its host persisted as one of Super Sonico's survival strategies. These strategies were needed due to the strain caused by the headphones which leaves the wearer with diminished brain functions. Sonico's clumsy and immature host would never endured in society without these strategies. With her enormous tits and pink hair, Sonico's host manages to become a successful model and acquires a taste for macaroons. She also plays guitar in an amateur band named First Astronomical Velocity. Their mascot is an alpaca.

Ebiten is about an astrology (or was it astronomy?) club that consists of mostly girls and one cross-dressing guy. It's an effortless fanservice show filled with nothing but unfunny referential humor and an occasional girl stripping. During their escapades, the club members eventually travel into the real world and fight the manga author over his comments that the anime is terrible. The girls also meet the animators and voice actors as well as the other staff of the show. But most importantly, there is a single scene that contains a lemon wedge, which is a good enough reason to get mentioned on this web log (and, quite frankly, is the highlight of the show).

Steins;Gate the Movie

The Steins;Gate movie duplicated the show's efforts but from the point of view of one of the girls. Instead of having one guy trying to bang all the ladies, the movie was about one of those ladies trying to stick with the man. That, of course, ends in failure. Because any dude with a time machine ain't gonna settle for some stuck-up red head. The one good thing the movie brought us was an expanded Alpaca Man family. Alpaca Man welcomed Alpaca Woman Man into his life and they gave birth to Alpaca Kid Man. May their happiness be eternal.

RahXephon is NOT a crossover between the two series Rah and Ephon like I originally thought, it's actually some kid-pilots-a-giant-robot-that-only-he-can-pilot type show. In the year 2015, the Mu, huge, tremendously powerful, alien race, appear in Tokyo for the second time. The only hope for Mankind's survival lies in the RahXephon, a humanoid fighting machine discovered by TERRA, a special United Nations agency. Capable of withstanding anything the Mu can dish out, the RahXephon's one drawback lies in the limited number of people able to pilot it. Only Ayato Kamina, whose mother heads the Mu race, can pilot the robot. Thrust into a maelstrom of battle and events that he does not understand, Ayato is forced to plumb the depths of his own inner resources for the courage and strength to not only fight, but to survive, or risk losing everything. (But of course he has a moment or two to down a refreshing lemon drink.)
