New translations from us this week: The Godfather, a hot To Love Ru doujin by Tsunken--despite its odd title, no one will be 'sleeping with the fishes' this time. In contrast to the anime, Rito actually has balls and aims to be the #1 man in the universe with his harem. Tsunken's done 4 other To Love Ru doujins which fit together with this one as a series.
The second doujin is PM 12--and as you'd expect from the PM series, it involves lots of hardcore rape. We translated this one nearly a year ago, and now it's finally available for free.
(Thanks to CGRascal and Rande respectively for the translations)

And for our members--Trouble Shoukougun: Mikado-sensei rapes almost every other woman in the series... one by one.
(Preview here)
Mankan Zenseki 2--the sequel to the previous Mankan Zenseki which we also translated, this one's based on the episode of Ikkitousen Great Guardians where Ryofu rapes futa-Ryubi at an amusement park. Naturally it wouldn't be complete without Kanu and lots of futa action too!
(Preview here)
(And thanks to Rande for translating both of these!)

A bit of a continuation of the Final Fantasy section from Monday. Today I'm bringing you FFX/FFXI, Pokemon, and School Rumble. FFX and Pokemon have both had almost no updates since they're fairly old and hardly any new content made for them. Unfortunately that means the content I can get for will frequently be in bad quality. But fortunately for today's update, every section gets an English doujin.

3 New Final Fantasy X Doujins
-Gyunn Gyunn 8 (English) (Lulu, Rikku, Yuna)
-Kuusou Zikken Extra 1 (English) (Lulu)
-Shoukan (Yuna)

2 New Final Fantasy XI Doujins

-Mithra Choukyou Enikki (Mithra)

4 New Pokemon Doujins
-Daremo Shiranai Monogatari no Tsuzuki (English) (Misty)
-Madamada Shiranai Koto no Takara Bako (Misty)
-Pokemon Booizu (Pikachu - girl)
-Takesi No Mousou Diary (English) (Various)

5 New School Rumble Doujins
-Ane to Ojou (Eri, Tae)
-Furaiyaazu to Akabee no hon (Eri, Tenma)
-Gakuen Shoujo (Eri, Yakumo)
-Tora Mai Ryuu (Eri, Tenma - gangrape)
-Yakumo Mamire (English) (Tenma x Yakumo)

Here's the update for today. I'm retreating this week back to doing doujins only. Even if you're not a Haruhi fan, check out Freedom. It's got some decent comedy mixed in.

All of the FF7 doujins once again feature Tifa. It seems like content for other girls in FF7 is nearly nonexistent compared to the amount of Tifa doujins. Well, at least it's easier to find.

3 New FF7 Doujins

-Kachou Fuugetsu Soushuuhen (Tifa)
-Off Limits (English) (Tifa)

5 New Haruhi Doujins

-Harukyon no Ecchi Hon 10 (Haruhi)
-Lets Keep It Secret (English) (Mikuru)
-Shangri-La (Yuki)
-Turuyastyle (Tsuyura)

5 New Hayate Doujins
-Chain (Various)
-Kaicho Onegai Shimasu (Hinagiku, bondage)
-Kara no Naka no Kotori (Nagi)
-Ojousama Chuuihou 2 (Nagi)
-Unhappy Girl 7 (Hinagiku, Maria)

Poll 602 (December 27th Ė 28th, 2008)
Battle Royal! Who would survive?

Allen Walker: 633 (4.1%)
Goku: 5723 (36.7%)
Ichigo: 2060 (13.2%)
Lelouch: 1324 (8.5%)
Luffy: 1284 (8.2%)
Naruto: 2570 (16.5%)
Yagami Light: 1987 (12.8%)

Total Votes: 15,581

Pfft, Goku? Come on people, please. Did you forget that Light would kill everyone except for Lelouch (assuming he's disguised as Zero), and Ichigo (Death Note's can't kill Shinigami) in the first 45 seconds?

Poll 612 (January 19th Ė 21st, 2009)
What was your favorite new anime of 2008? (Other than Code Geass)

Chaos; Head: 362 (5.3%)
Gundam 00 Second Season: 1143 (16.7%)
Macross Frontier: 313 (4.6%)
Sekirei: 686 (10%)
Tower of Druaga: 306 (4.5%)
To Love Ru: 1392 (20.3%)
Other: 2651 (38.7%)

Total Votes: 6,853

Well it looks like To Love Ru, Gundam 00 2, and Sekirei were the most popular, though a lot of people had other shows in mind (Iím not sure which). (Note that this poll is really about popularity rather than how good a show is, since people arenít going to vote for a series they havenít watched, regardless of how good it is.)

A Matsumoto x Hitsugaya doujin by Heta no Yoko Zuki, with Hitsguaya being the aggressor for once. The doujin's better than you'd expect from its cover.

And for our members--another Ninja Dependence doujin by Blue Syndrome--Sakura gets raped by a tentacle monster in the forest of death exam and Naruto somehow gets lucky in the process... though the doujin's unfortunately short.

Lets kick this week off with some CG's and doujins. Most of the cgs are pretty short except the Zero Rei no Tsukaima (100+ pics, though most are alterations), but that's the norm I guess. Next week I'm thinking of updating at least one or two sections that almost never get updated. DOA's probably at the top of that list, but don't really have a second.

A doujin by YA-ZY, one of my personal favorite artists, featuring characters from Rumble Fish (a little known fighter game). Basically Garnet's a slut wearing something vaguely resembling a nurse uniform who goes around sucking lots of ****. Yeah, deep stuff.

And for our members--a Code Geass doujin by Nekomataya featuring Rolo and Lelouch x a rather reluctant Villetta. I'm also going to do another Nekomataya update in a few days (she's mostly been doing Id@lmaster doujins lately) since I haven't done one in 6 months.

New Naruto doujins have been in short supply lately, though hopefully this will fill your lust need--we've translated 70+ misc. Naruto pics from our hentai galleries and compiled them into one place for your convenience. It features pics by numerous popular artists like Mosha, Blue Syndrome, and Karikishi. (If there are some other misc. hentai pics which you want to see translated too, let us know! And thanks to the hard-working Sayo for tirelessly translating them all!)

Kapucchu To Vampire was member's only for the last 2 months, but we're releasing it in the free section today to coincide with the release below. Meanwhile we translated another Death Note doujin this week--MuZ by 2Stroke (sorry it's so short though).

And for our members--the sequel to Kapucchu To Vampire: this time it's Yukari, Ruby, Moka, and evil-Moka x Tsukune.
(Preview here)
(Thanks to CGRascal for the Rosario + Vampire translations, Jinukug for the Rosario + Vampire scans, and Makasu for the MuZ and Oh! Big Sexy translations.)

Top 10 New Anime Series of 2008:
1. Code Geass R2
Was there ever any doubt who'd be number-1? Awesome series, with each episode stuffed beyond the bursting-point with plot, drama and action, though with a somewhat weak ending. (Blog post 1, 2, and 3)

2. Macross Frontier
A great series, though the gap between 1st and 2nd place is pretty big... (Blog post)

3. Tower of Druaga: The Aegis of Uruk
Wow, where did this come from? It's a 12-episode sleeper-hit series you've probably never even heard of. The intro makes it look like the series' world is actually an MMORPG like .Hack (it's not), and the first episode is a satirical comedy mocking RPGs in general, but the rest of the series is dead serious. What's even better--the second season starts next week! The "ending" of season-1 could've been better though.

4. Sekirei
Proving to the world that ecchi-animes don't have to suck! (Blog post)

5. Chaos; Head
Anyone up for a third season of Higurashi? Yes please! Better yet, this time the protagonist is your average everday 4channer otaku too!

6. Gundam 00: Second Season
Ok, yes, sure almost everyone who died in season-1 gets brought back to life in season-2, sure its laid out in an overly-episodic manner, and sure the series' plot doesn't exactly hold water, but hey, it's still Gundam here!

7. To Love Ru
An awesome harem-anime, though the episodes are rather hit-or-miss (some are great, though some just suck). (Blog post)

8. Majin Tantei Nougami Neuro
A cool anime-style detective series--the way the criminals kill people is usually rather cool, though their motives and how Neuro catches them are usually rather lame, though at least Neuro usually doesn't cheat when doing inferences unlike most detectives in detective shows.

9. Blade of the Immortal
Follows the tried-and-true formula of a samurai-themed series with tons of violence, blood, revenge, and sex--and it works!

10. Tales of the Abyss
Based on the PS2 RPG--it's still laid-out in RPG-format too much though (dialogue, then wander through a dungeon fighting random enemies, then have a random inconsequential fight with a boss, and repeat--works for RPGs, but not for anime). The drama should've been more focused and simplified too, and there's too much filler.

Quasi-Honorable Mentions:
-Soul Eater: This series has a lot of great ideas but with mediocre execution, and all the retarded comedic elements constantly interrupting the story really hurt the series.
-Ikkitousen Great Guardians: Nice fanservice, but not much else.
-They are My Noble Masters: Ecchi!
-Kanokon: And more ecchi!
-Dragonaut: -The Resonance-: A decent action series worth the watch, but the series' high point is definitely the babes!
-Rosario + Vampire Seasons 1 and 2
-Clannad: After Story

Not-so-Honorable mentions:
-Slayers Revolution: WTF, they revived this dusty-old-franchise for this crap?!
-Zero no Tsukaima 3: The tsundere-relationship is getting old! They say anime based on light-novel-series usually suck... way to not break the trend.
-Strike Witches: I love the pantsu and the l*lis (and episode 7), though this series is just pretty empty aside from that. Maybe if they'd focused simply on the action or ecchi instead of their half-assed attempt at drama the series would've been better.
-Bamboo Blade
-Jushin Enbu - Hero Tales: Based on the manga by the creator of Full Metal Alchemist, though so far the series has pretty much sucked--it finished airing a while ago, though no one has ever subbed beyond episode 14, so who knows if the second half was any good.

Overall the anime industry was more risk-adverse in 2008--there were fewer new series, and fewer long series (26 or 52 eps), instead focusing on giving older series new 2nd or 3rd seasons, and breaking series up into multiple seasons (such as two 13 episode seasons instead of one 26 episode season). Meanwhile Naruto, One Piece, Bleach, and D.Gray-Man continued to kick ass, and none of the new series could compare to them, aside from Code Geass of course.

Disclaimer: There are a lot of anime series, and I haven't watched most of them, so my apologies if your favorite series got excluded! Some of the series are still ongoing and I've yet to watch every episode of some of them, so my apologies if they unexpectedly start getting better or worse than my rankings indicate later on!
