Texhnolyze

In the underground city of Lux, Ichise is a prize fighter. He angers his promoter, who cuts off his arm and leg. Doc, a former citizen of the sealed city of the Class, is Lux's most talented researcher of Texhnolyze, an advanced prosthetic limb technology. She gives Ichise Texhnolyzed limbs without his consent. Texhnolyze uses Raffia, a substance derived from dead bodies that is harvested in mines around the city's Obelisk. Raffia prevents the user's body from rejecting the Texhnolyze.

Ran, the current Seer of Gabe, sells flowers in Lux. She can see an individual's possible future. Her followers in Gabe unquestioningly accept her predictions even at the cost of their lives. Gabe is home to the former leaders of Lux, who were overthrown by the Organo. Onishi is the current leader of the Organo and is credited with the current peace in Lux.

Yoshii comes to Lux from the legendary surface. Fed up with the unchanging nature life on surface, Yoshii covertly throws Lux into chaos, pitting the Organo, the Salvation Union, and the Racan against each other. The tensions eventually escalate into a battle in the streets between the three factions. Afterward, Yoshii attempts to convince Shinji, leader of the Racan, to assassinate a Class leader. Onishi arrives to prevent the assassination, and Yoshii almost kills Onishi, but Ichise arrives and kills Yoshii.

Doc goes to the entrance of the Class enclave and attempts to convince their leader, Kano, to take her in and use her Texhnolyze expertise, presenting Ichise as an example that Texhnolyzation can create perfect humans. However, Kano has a different form of Texhnolyzation in mind, so he destroys Doc's research and tries to kill her.

Kano undermines the three factions of Lux and creates an army of Shapes: humans whose entire bodies have been replaced with Texhnolyze, with only their heads remaining intact. The Shapes march on the city and many of Onishi's remaining allies are killed.

Onishi sends Doc and Ichise to the surface to warn of Kano's impending invasion. They discover that the world above is sparsely populated, and the remaining citizens have resigned themselves to extinction and became ghosts. The government is apathetic to the news of the invasion. Doc and Ichise find an old-style movie theater where they see a film that explains that Lux was created when the Class rounded up people who were thought to be imperfect or impure of thought, killing many and forcing the rest into the underground city. Doc commits suicide after seeing what the surface has become. Ichise returns to Lux, learning that the Shapes have captured Ran.

The Shapes begin to stop functioning, and Shinji is killed after killing most of the members of the Class in their fortress.

Ran shows her visions to the people of Lux, driving them mad. She is captured and taken to Kano's sanctum. Onishi goes to the Obelisk, begging the city for guidance. The city, in Ran's voice, tells Onishi to kill the city for driving everyone insane. He chooses to destroy everything rather than living on with madness in body and soul. He stabs the Obelisk, and it bleeds. The crazed men of the city shoot Onishi until nothing is left but his Texhnolyzed legs.

All of the Shapes, as well as Kano, have been rooted to the ground and permanently immobilized. Ichise finds Kano in the opera house. Kano says that he failed in his attempt to use Texhnolyzation to get people to evolve out of their violent ways, and now humanity's self-preserving bloodline has returned to its roots.

Ichise sees that Ran is behind Kano and has been turned into a Shape, but Kano says that she turned her mind off by her own will. Seeing Ichise's rage, Kano says that if Ichise kills him, the one sane man in the city, Ichise will only be embracing his own madness. Ichise responds by punching Kano's head off.

Ichise drops Ran's remains into the pool of Raffia. He leans against a column, watching a projection of a simplistic rendering of one of Ran's flowers. Eventually he slumps over and smiles as he and the city fade away.

K-On!

K-On! (けいおん! Keion!) is a Japanese four-panel comic strip seinen manga written and illustrated by Kakifly. The manga was serialized in Houbunsha's seinen manga magazine Manga Time Kirara between the May 2007 and October 2010 issues. It was also serialized in Houbunsha's magazine Manga Time Kirara Carat. The manga relaunched from April 2011 to June 2012 with two separate storylines published in Manga Time Kirara and Manga Time Kirara Carat. The manga is licensed in North America by Yen Press.
A 13-episode anime adaptation produced by Kyoto Animation aired in Japan between April and June 2009. An additional original video animation (OVA) episode was released in January 2010. A 26-episode second season, titled K-On!! (with two exclamation marks), aired in Japan between April and September 2010, with an OVA episode released in March 2011. An animated film based on the series was released in Japan on December 3, 2011. Bandai Entertainment released the first season in North America in 2011, while the second season and film were licensed by Sentai Filmworks. The title of the series comes from the Japanese word for light music, keiongaku (軽音楽), which in the Japanese context is similar to pop music.

In K-On!, four Japanese high school girls join Sakuragaoka Girl's High School's light music club to try to save it from being disbanded. However, they are the only members of the club. At first, Yui Hirasawa has no experience playing musical instruments or reading sheet music as she is only familiar with playing the castanets, but she eventually becomes an excellent guitar player. From then on, Yui, along with bassist Mio Akiyama, drummer Ritsu Tainaka, and keyboardist Tsumugi Kotobuki spend their school days practicing, performing, and hanging out together. The club is overseen by music teacher Sawako Yamanaka, who eventually becomes their homeroom teacher as well during their final year of high school. In their second year, the club welcomes another guitarist, underclassman Azusa Nakano. After Azusa joins they gain more structure and begin to practice more.
After their third year, Yui, Ritsu, Mio and Tsumugi graduate and enroll into a university. There they join its light music club alongside three other students: Akira Wada, Ayame Yoshida, and Sachi Hayashi. Meanwhile, Azusa continues to run the high school light music club alongside Yui's sister, Ui, their classmate, Jun Suzuki, and new members Sumire Saitō and Nao Okuda.

Soul Eater

Soul Eater is set at Death Weapon Meister Academy (死神武器職人専門学校 Shinigami Buki Shokunin Senmon Gakkō)—"DWMA" (死武専 Shibusen) for short—located in the fictional Death City in Nevada, United States. The school is run by Shinigami, also known as Death, as a training facility for humans with the ability to transform into weapons, as well as the wielders of those weapons, called meisters (職人 shokunin). Attending this school are meister Maka Albarn and her scythe partner Soul Eater; assassin Black Star and his partner Tsubaki Nakatsukasa, who can turn into a variety of different weapons such as a kusarigama, shuriken, and ninjatō; and Shinigami's son Death the Kid and his pistol partners Liz and Patty Thompson. The goal of the school's meister students is to have their weapons defeat and absorb the souls of 99 evil humans and one witch, which will dramatically increase the power of the given weapon and turn them into "death scythes", weapons capable of being used by Shinigami.

Shortly after the start of Soul Eater, Maka and Soul Eater face off against the witch Medusa, who forces her child Crona, meister of the demon sword Ragnarok, to collect non-evil human souls and transform into a kishin (鬼神), an evil demon god. Medusa and her cohorts attack DWMA with the intention of reviving Asura, the first kishin who nearly plunged the entire world into madness before being sealed beneath DWMA by Shinigami. Despite the combined efforts of Maka, Black Star, and Death the Kid, Medusa's group successfully revives Asura, who leaves to spread chaos around the world after a brief battle with Shinigami. However, Medusa is seemingly killed by the meister and DWMA teacher Franken Stein in the process, while Crona surrenders to the DWMA and goes on to enroll there and befriend Maka.

As a result of Asura's spreading madness, Medusa's older sister Arachne comes out of hiding after 800 years. Arachne reforms her organization Arachnophobia, which poses itself as a serious threat to DWMA. Shinigami calls in death scythes from around the world to aid in the fight against Arachnophobia. During this time, Medusa reappears with her soul in the body of a young girl, and forms a truce with DWMA so they can annihilate the threat of Arachnophobia together. The DWMA students and Medusa's entourage infiltrate Arachnophobia's headquarters where Maka defeats Arachne, only for Medusa to betray DWMA, possess Arachne's body, and brainwash Crona into rejoining her. Meanwhile, Death the Kid is captured by Noah, an artificial construct created from the Book of Eibon's Tables of Contents. Following this, Maka finally succeeds in turning Soul Eater into a death scythe, and the duo become part of the newly formed meister unit Spartoi along with their friends, who rescue Death the Kid and defeat Noah (Greed), though a new Noah (Wrath) is created by the arcane power of the Book of Eibon thanks to its Tables of Contents.

While DWMA searches for Asura's whereabouts, Crona resurfaces in a city in Russia, destroying it and killing the death scythe stationed there, and then kills Medusa and goes completely insane. Maka is ordered by Shinigami to hunt and kill Crona, and inadvertently discovering Asura's presence on the moon during her search. A four-way battle between DWMA, Asura with his Clown armies, the Book of Eibon with Noah (Wrath), and Crona ensues on the Moon's surface.

Seirei Tsukai no Blade Dance Ryuushima

In all honesty the problem with Seirei is that even in the light novel the first part of the story is simply boring. It feels like a school romance/comedy with an annoying redhead tsundere and a bunch of other nicer heroines.
It is indeed a problem because that is all that the first arc offers, it's the introduction arc of the characters and them getting to know each other.
All the arcs after the first one, and yes I mean all of em! Are insanely good with intense action, deep plot and good villains. However since the anime only wanted a 12 episode show we never even got to the main story and are stuck in the school comedy that is not even that funny.

So yeah, I'd still recommend season 1 just for an entertaining yet not super interesting watch with cute girls in it. However if you really want to taste the awesomeness you will have to either read the light novel or hope for a season 2 since all hell breaks loose quite shortly after where the anime ended.
