2013 Q4 Top Anime Titles
from RightStuf.com, Part 1

Our good friends at RightStuf.com wanted to showcase some of the cool anime titles that were released in the last quarter of 2013 and we thought "why not highlight them in Anime Talk?" This time around Jessica Heemsbergen selects five titles that she thinks deserves special mention. From outrageous comdey to touching drama and anime classics, Jessica has selected a great slate of titles that are all worth a good look. Take a gander at the list and if any of these shows piques your interest you can find them all, plus a whole lot more, at RightStuf.com.

Jessica's Top 5 Anime Picks, October - December 2013:

AT1.jpg#1 Wolf Children:

Wolf Children is a touching coming of age story that will pull at your heartstrings. The story expands over 13 years, but the show's pace never seems slow. My attention was kept from beginning to end. I found myself laughing and crying with the family throughout the whole movie. I strongly recommend this title!

 AT2.jpg#2 Rose of Versailles:

Riyoko Ikeda's classic series finally has come to America! Set in the days leading up to the tumultuous French Revolution, this story follows Oscar François de Jarjayes, a woman raised to live as a man, and the struggles she faces as Marie Antoinette's guard and confidante. As the story progresses, Oscar soon finds that the French Royal Court is a dangerous place, especially for someone as young and naïve as Marie. I particularly loved the faithfulness to history The Rose of Versailles has, and I often found myself reading up on the history of the actual people as I progressed through the show.

 AT3.jpg#3 Say, "I Love You":

Say, "I Love You" is a breath of fresh air compared to all the other romance shows out there right now. You don't have to wait until the 9th episode before something happens in Mei and Yamato's relationship. I enjoyed watching each character grow and overcome their past hardships in order to move forward. I thought the show was very relatable and would strongly recommend this title.

 AT4.jpg#4 Good Luck Girl! Binbogami ga!:

Good Luck Girl! Binbogami ga! is an outrageously funny series. You can't help, but wonder what crazy situation the characters are going to get themselves into next. While the story is simple, the viewers are able to learn a valuable lesson from the show. If you're looking for a pick me up this holiday season Good Luck Girl! Binbogami ga! is the way to go.

AT5.jpg#5 Accel World:

Accel World is a very interesting show. It takes on the challenge of addressing how technology has influenced people's lives both positively and negatively. The negative side is shown by the main characters desire to escape reality. It also demonstrates how people can become addicted to technology. Overall the show has a great storyline and enough action to keep you entertained.

So there you have it, Jessica's picks for 2013 Q4 top anime releases! Stay tuned for more picks from RightStuf.com coming soon.
