"Haruhi Suzumiya series"---涼宮ハルヒ シリーズ

   "Haruhi Suzumiya" is the graphic novel series by Nagaru Tanigawa. The novel was made into an anime in 2006 called "The Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiyah". It has an inordinate level of popularity among otaku.
   The heroine, "Haruhi Suzumiya", is a high school girl. She has strong fighting instincts and she is very cute. She is also very eccentric and strongly interested in the paranormal, for example: space aliens, humans from the future, possessors of supernatural powers, and so on. She has wished that they could appear on earth and that she could play with them.
   One day when she was in seventh grade, she got the ability to make her wishes come true. No one knows how she got it. She hasn't noticed the ability yet, but the ability made space aliens, humans from the future, and possessors of supernatural powers appear on the earth, because she wished that they would appear. They try to find out the secret of her mysterious ability, while trying to not let her notice the ability and their identities.
   A normal high school boy "Kyon" became her first friend in her school. Since her ability seemed to make him her first friend, he is the interest of the three paranoramal characters. Each one of them tell Kyon their identity. At first he didn't believe it, but he came to believe it because he was attacked by a space alien with a knife in the outer space, something that he had never imagined possible.
   Haruhi made a club in her school. The club's name is the "SOS Brigade". The members are Haruhi, Kyon, and three paranormal people that her power created. They are all students at the school, but one of the three is an alien girl, another is a girl from future, and the other is a boy who has supernatural powers. Haruhi doesn't know their identities, but Knon does know. In fact, the ability to make her wish come true made them the members of "SOS Brigade", because she wished that she could play with people like them.
   The three paranormal people are afraid of one common thing. It is the possibility that this world/universe, could be destroyed by her. If she thinks of this world as a dull place and wants to make a new world, this universe may be destroyed by her ability. Kyon knows about both the possibility of the end of the world and the ability to make her wishes come true, but Haruhi herself knows neither. Knon gets involved in various troubles with both the paranormal people and the heroine ---"Haruhi Suzumiya."

Fire Ball

'Fire Ball' is an animated program from Disney.
However, it is produced in Japan. This fact isn't so well
known in Japan.

It takes place in the future far from Earth on aworld
where robots rule over the human race. The main characters
are two robots that live in a certain residence.

One robot is a duke's daughter, Dorossel. Another is
a steward, Gedehitonis. These two robots are the only
characters in this animation. And the story consists only
of these two robots having surreal conversations.

As for these conversations, Dorossel always starts by
calling and mistaking the steward's name. Each episode is
only about two minutes.

I personally very much like the communication between
these two robots. 'Fire Ball' is animation that makes
you want to see more of it.
