Today marks the day for me to start my long list of anime for the summer. I plan on watching Black Rock Shooter as well as Elfen Lied first and will do reviews on both of them.
Black Rock Shooter is about two girls that meet and despite their differences they form a strong connection. Both girls have secrets though and in an empty world two girls fight: Black Rock Shooter and Deadmaster while a mysterious person by the name of Black Gold Saw watches their battle. This anime is 8 episodes long with one OVA giving a total of 9 episodes.
Elfen Lied is about a young psychotic Diclonius(A mutated homo sapiens that is said to be selected by GOD and will eventually become the destruction of mankind.) named Lucy who escapes from her government containment cell and murders most of the guards before being shot in the head. Lucy survives however and stumbles around on a beach until two teenagers named Kouta and Yuka find her and offer to let her stay at Kouta’s house. Since they do not know her name they name her the only thing she can say which is “Nyuu”. However it seems as though the “evil” Lucy is not dead yet. This anime is 13 episodes and has 1 OVA bringing it to a total of 14 episodes.
