Character of the month!

Petit Charat "Puchiko"


Anime: Di Gi Charat

Bio:  Puchiko, also known as Capuccino, is Dejiko's five year old sidekick and is a catgirl. Puchiko is quiet (but when she does speak she has unexpected sharp tongue) and has a Type B personality. She has the ability to use an eye-beam similar to Dejiko's but is often too docile to conjure the aggression required to perform such a feat.

Fun Facts: 

Her eye beam results in many things to come out of her eyes, including sludge, when she attempts to use it. 

Puchiko has brown hair and dark brown eyes. She wears a schoolgirl-type uniform plus cat bells in her hair, though they are much smaller than Dejiko's. She wears orange boots, cat ears and tail.

She ends each sentence with nyu.

Anime Recommendations!

In this section users can give their recommendations and ratings for their favorite anime. You can update your favorites every season if you so wish. If you have a recommendation, shoot me a PM with the anime and why you recommend it. 

Whether you are new to anime and want to watch some of the best available, or are a veteran who's looking for some new content, this is the place to keep an eye on.

Ka-pi96: Sword Art Online. Plenty of great action scenes with some very good characters and a nice dose of romance between some of them. The animation quality is very high and the setting is a virtual reality MMO so something familiar for gamers. 9/10 for me.

(Genre: Fantasy, Action, Adventure)

NobleTeam360: Angel Beats. Great anime that has a lot of emotions in it, it's on the short side of 13 episodes, but it does so much in those 13 episodes and I truly felt attached to the characters. Also I find the humor to be quite good, I can say I laughed at least a few times each episode. 9/10 for me!

(Genre: Tragedy,  Action, Fantasy)

Jizz_Beard_thePirate: I say K-on and the reason is that the anime blends Slice of Life, Comedy and Music really well! Both the singing and even the background music during some moments really show an emphasis on music that I havnt seen in any other anime before! Top that with some really funny comedy moments and quite rememberable characterization, you have yourself a truely great anime! I specially love Mio's songs and she is certainly my favorite anime singer without a doubt! 8.5/10.

(Genre: Comedy, Music, Slice of Life)

VanceIX: Full Metal Alchemist: Brotherhood. Still the best anime of all time for me. A masterpiece in all aspects. The characters, the story, the animation, all of it was perfect. It was the kind of anime that could send shivers down your back because it was just that good. A tale both tragic yet heart-warming at the same time. Every anime fan should give it a try. 10/10.

(Genre: Science Fantasy, Action, Adventure)

estebxx: Elfen Lied is the reason why I started watching anime, it was so good that I wanted to see if I could find an anime that was better than it, and even though with time I did found some other incredible anime masterpieces, Elfen Lied is still a great classic that everyone should watch.

It centers on Lucy a Diclonii (a mutant) human being with two horns on her head and the ability to control "vectors", transparent telekinetically controlled arms that have the power to manipulate and cut objects within their reach, bullied and rejected since childhood Lucy starts to build up a hatred against society and human beings in general.

The show features themes of social alienation, prejudice, identity, revenge, abuse, jealousy, regret and the value of humanity. It also contains graphic violence and emotional themes that feature characters development through the whole story. There is one word that I would use to describe this anime and that’s UNIQUE. 10/10

(Genre: Romance, Tragedy, Action)

Squeezol: My first recommendation in this thread is "Is The Order A Rabbit?" which is your typical cute girls doing cute things aka moe anime. It's simple yet relaxing, and even feels refreshing because of its theme. The anime revolves around Cocoa and her friends living their lives in and around the Rabbit House, a cafe where all kinds of coffee are served. The animation is super cute, just like the characters, and the music fits the overall European scenery very well. I give this anime a moe out of 10.

(Genre: Slice of Life, Comedy)

Zisbest: An Anime recommendation you ask for? The first thing that came to my mind 'Recommend ToraDora... just do it, darn it' So now I'm here doing exactly so. ToraDora is basically your standard Slice of Life Anime, mixed together with a lot of Humor and Romance.

The plot evolves around the two students Ryuuji and Taiga who essentially want to help each other out to hit on their individual crush. None of their plans work out the way they intended though, so they stumble from one funny moment to the next. Living pretty isolated in the beginning, Taiga continues to form a pretty strong bond to Ryuuji over the course of the 25 episode long Anime. The plot certainly won't get boring.

Now who should watch this Anime? You're into Slice of Life? Certainly. You want humorous situations? Check it out. You can't resist Romance with a Tsundere couple? Why are you still reading this? Personally I'd rate this Anime a solid 9/10 any day.
