The Reflection: It's a superhero anime set in New York.  Lots of Engrish.  It also has an interesting style, kind of Western but also just kinda cheap.

Ancient Magus Bride: Reminds me of Neil Gaiman comics like Books of Magic or Sandman. Real nice. The Leannan Sidhe and dragon stories are very nice.

Made in Abyss (Amazon - Anime Strike)
This show is a good argument for why Amazon's entry into anime streaming, and the resulting split of shows across different subscription barriers, really sucks. I had a chance to watch the show. It's gorgeous. The music is good. The characters are interesting.

It's about a town that sits at the top of a massive pit called the Abyss. The main character is a young girl, Riko, who lives in an orphanage that trains it's occupants to be Abyss Hunters. Abyss Hunters delve into the very dangerous Abyss to search for artifacts to bring back. Riko yearns to follow in the footsteps of her mother, who was a famous Abyss Hunter. In the first episode, a series of events leads Riko to discover a young boy who is some kind of robot who came up from the Abyss.


Everything seems to be great about it ... except that it's locked in Amazon's Anime Strike service.
Made in Abyss: This appears to be a cute show about kids mining relics from a pit filled with horrible things, but oh boy it gets so darker.

It's actually the second anime I've seen lately that had a graphic depiction of an arm amputation, although this one didn't go through with it completely.

Juni Taisen: A group of Chinese Zodiac assassins come together in a contest where the prize is a wish for the last survivor.  Feels very basic, like it's based off a cellphone game or something.

Sengoku Night Blood: Shojo show with a girl traveling back in time and meeting the very pretty Oda Nobunaga and his boy friends. I feel like this concept has been beat to death and yet here it is again,

Princess Principal: Not what I expected, which was some kind of comedy about a princess who somehow becomes a high school principal (not that weird a premise for anime though). It's like a steampunk version of GitS. It has my interest.
This was an interesting show. Parts of it were still a little weird, but it had an interesting storyline (albeit a take on a fairly classic story) and some interesting world-building. I thought I read somewhere it might be coming back for a second run.

Although even the first few episodes give some little hints that the show isn't all bunnies and rainbows.

This was a wonderful show to watch, but I wasn't too fond of the ending. Definitely enjoyed the rest of the journey, tho.
