Mangahelpers Bi-Weekly Featured Anime - 6th September to 20th September

+ posted by naruto-niichan in Site News on Sep 6, 2012 16:15
Hello everyone! Welcome to the next Bi-Weekly Featured Anime!

Every two weeks we will present you three different anime's which we consider a good work to look at. It can be either a recently started anime or an old classic so feel free to visit the Otaku Theater/Retro Theater and tell us your opinion about the featured work!
Now let's get started:



Paprika




Episodes: 1
Status: Finished
Aired: Aug 2006
Producers: Madhouse
Genres: Mystery, Fantasy
MAL-Rating: 8.21/10.00
Discussion Thread: HERE

Summary:

In the near future, a revolutionary new psychotherapy treatment called PT has been invented. Through a device called the "DC Mini" it is able to act as a "dream detective" to enter into people's dreams and explore their unconscious thoughts. Before the government can pass a bill authorizing the use of such advanced psychiatric technology, one of the prototypes is stolen, sending the research facility into an uproar. In the wrong hands, the potential misuse of the device could be devastating, allowing the user to completely annihilate a dreamer's personality while they are asleep. Renowned scientist, Dr. Atsuko Chiba, enters the dream world under her exotic alter-ego, code name "PAPRIKA," in an attempt to discover who is behind the plot to undermine the new invention.


Suzumiya Haruhi no Yuutsu




Episodes: 14 (+14 second season)
Status: Finished
Aired: Apr 3, 2006 to Jul 3, 2006 (May 21, 2009 to Sep 10, 2009)
Producers: Kyoto Animation
Genres: Mystery, Comedy
MAL-Rating: 8.35/10.00
Discussion Thread: (First season), HERE (Second Season)

Summary:

Kyon, your typical high school student, has long given up his belief in the supernatural. However, upon meeting Haruhi Suzumiya, he quickly finds out that it is the supernatural that she is interested in; aliens, time travelers and espers among other things. When Haruhi laments about the lack of intriguing clubs around school, Kyon inspires Haruhi to form her own club. As a result, the SOS Brigade is formed, a club which specializes in all that is the supernatural.

Much to his chagrin, Kyon, along with the silent bookworm, Yuki Nagato, the shy and timid Mikuru Asahina, and the perpetually smiling Itsuki Koizumi, are recruited as members. The story follows the crazy adventures that these four endure under their whimsical leader, Haruhi. The story is based on the light novels by Nagaru Tanigawa.


Tokyo Godfathers



Episodes: 1
Status: Finished
Aired: Aug 30, 2003
Producers: Madhouse
Genres: Comedy, Drama
MAL-Rating: 8.32/10.00
Discussion Thread: HERE


Summary:

Three homeless companions -- a runaway girl, a transvestite, and an alcoholic -- find an abandoned newborn on Christmas Eve while foraging through trash. Using clues found next to the baby, they fan out through Tokyo to find the parents, along the way confronting reminders of their own lives they have nearly abandoned.
