Nadia: The Secret of Blue Water: An older series with one of the most annoying heroines around. Nadia is like an exotic version of Lisa Simpson. (Think Lisa in her anti-meat eating rampage in “Lisa the Vegetarian”.) Plus you’re always walking on eggshells talking to Nadia. Poor Jean, the young French boy who becomes smitten with her! आप know he could never प्यार anyone in his life but her, but oh, how dysfunctional their family will be! My प्रिय character; however, is Sanson, a sometimes good guy/sometimes bad guy hunk. A problem I have with this series is it introduces what I call Twisted ईसाई धर्म near the end, when it’s too late to back out from watching the series now. (Other series have done this—take Wolfwood’s पार करना, क्रॉस in “Trigun”.) In Nadia’s case, it’s multiple, flying Noah’s Arks, and the idea that people from Atlantis created Adam and gave intelligence to human beings. Whatever. Still, an okay series. Not stellar, just okay.
Nanaka 6/17: I probably wouldn’t have checked this out, but it was on ऐनीमे Network on Demand while my Netflix account was on hold. It’s about a way too serious seventeen साल old who falls down and gets up अभिनय like a six साल old. Problem is, she’s much और likeable as a six साल old, so it’s doubtful one may want her to regain her age. It was cute, but just average.
Nazca—our poor hero, he’s always coming in सेकंड best! That, and finding out he and all his acquaintances are reincarnations of ancient Incas. It was an early series and is fading in my memory.
Outlaw तारा, स्टार (edited version)—I might have been able to handle the unedited version if I discovered it first. But as it is now, I can’t handle Gene’s debauchery and Melfina’s nipples. But the show, as I watched it week द्वारा week on adult swim, was a blast. And Gene really got to me—I wrote a gushy letter all about him to one of the ऐनीमे magazines.
Paranoia Agent—this didn’t seem like a दिखाना I would get into, but I caught an early episode on adult swim, and watched it from there. Intriguing, but not lovable. It has truly the saddest scene (in a bad way) in any anime—a कुत्ते का बच्चा, पिल्ला gets run over. I wanted to bawl.
Please Save My Earth-short series all on one disc. Interesting reincarnation story.
Princess Tutu—dare I use the word cute again? Ending was a little off, but not so much it made me want to disown the show. I see no reason why the heroine shouldn’t be allowed to become human again. After all, ducks live short lives.
Romeo x Juliet—I knew the story was tragic, but I figured, if any medium can do tragedy so well it ends up feeling good, it’s anime. So I checked this series out. It was so loosely adapted from Shakespeare that a happy ending could have been possible (like in this movie I saw about Romeo and Juliet as animated seals). I watched, preparing myself for death, but द्वारा the end, I was really hoping Juliet and Romeo would get to rule Neo Venezia together. But due to some complications with a mystical tree, they die anyway. But they get to be together in death. And the city is saved. An epilogue दिखा रहा है their फ्रेंड्स and relations months down the road shows them happy, and the character of William (Shakespeare, delightfully over the top) spouts out some hopeful prose, instead of lines of woe.
I had mixed feelings about the last episode, but in general, I enjoyed the series.
Besides, maybe they’ll be reincarnated as seals. या the characters in that Taylor तत्पर, तेज, स्विफ्ट song.
