Ancient Book of Ys (Google It) is a very old school anime with old school 8-bit video game RPG storyline. Watch this feels just like u r playing an old school RPG game. Nice.

Our hero Adol Christine, compelled by an unknown urge, travels to the faraway land of Estellia, a land being overrun by monsters. There he learns that his coming was foretold by legend, and that he will end the menace to the land. Which unsurprisingly he does. In the process he and his companions search for the six books of Ys, which hold both the answers to the mystery and the key to the problem, battling both little and boss monsters all the way.

Paranoid Agent (2nd link) (Google It) (Wikipedia) is a mysterious anime, which character in each episode are linked but their stories is not. Me hoping this unusual anime will have it’s sequal…

A mysterious mugging happend in Tokyo. Tsukiko’s testimony is really doubtful, so she is suspected to have commited the crime by herself.

Soon after, the next victims appear, they always involve a young boy with a baseball bat, wearing golden rollerblades.

Who is he? Who’s his next target?
