High School Of The Dead
Zombie Apocalypse meets Japanese High Schoolers in a fight to the death... undeath... whatever. Great action, hideously top-heavy female character designs, comedy... what's not to like?
Toshokan Sensou (Library Wars)
In the not-too-distant future (next Sunday A.D.), the Government cracks down on books and magazines it deems offensive. Naturally, the nation's librarians take up arms against the oppressors. Or something like that. Not terrible art, some fun times, action, romance... what's not to like?
The times are grim. The times are dark. Nuns and maids are heavily armed. And everybody has a toothache. Violence, awfully black humor, good art, and you see a helicopter shot down by a torpedo. For what it's worth, the seiyuu for Revy, Megumi Toyoguchi, has a voice like liquid sex... not that you'll be able to hear it on here.
Schoolgirl is a little klutzy, a little dim, quite friendly, and able to kill everybody within a 50m radius using her sword without breaking a sweat. Fortunately, she's just a demon hunter. Or is she? Bwahahahahahahahaha!!! The most recent show of the four, it's got the best art and the worst hairstyle I've ever seen (see above). Also: grim, dark, toothache. Or is it?
So those are your choices. Consider them wisely, for your mind may be at stake. Mine is already forfeit. Balloting is open until 1159pm Sunday, March 4th. One vote per reader (unless you're from Chicago). Leave your choice in the comments. No write-ins. The top rung is not to be used as a step. Huh, will you look at that: "breach hull, all die." I even had it underlined. Make your picks, place your bets!

As an aside, I also picked up a DVD of the MST3K movie ("I calculated the odds... then went ahead and did it anyway"). Unfortunately it's the cheapest rendition of anything ever; the DVD itself is actually sticky due (apparently) to the misapplication of adhesive for the disc's label, or something. Ugh.

Believe it or not, it has some good character development in it.

(Blood-C would be a more pure Rio experience, but you already put yourself through Rio once for our sakes.)
