Chris's weekly favorite anime picks

Kanon

<iframe width="640" height="480" src="http://www.youtube.com/embed/-p1F1Ks3cTQ?rel=0" frameborder="0" allowfullscreen></iframe>

SYNOPSIS: Yuichi hasn't seen his cousin Nayuki in years. Now that he's back, all knowledge of ever visiting has vanished. He tries to adjust to the vaguely familiar surroundings, but the gaps in his memory haunt him as time grows short. The pieces of the puzzle have appeared - an eerily silent beauty with blazing tresses, the mysterious girl with the winged backpack, and the sword-wielding demon slayer - but it's up to Yuichi to discover how they fit together.

Kaze no Stigma

<iframe width="640" height="360" src="http://www.youtube.com/embed/7QDP26ueA-g?rel=0" frameborder="0" allowfullscreen></iframe>

SYNOPSIS: Kazuma is a Contractor of the Wind, a cool customer with the power to unleash a whirlwind of terror on his enemies. Ayano is a smoking-hot mistress of the Fire Arts who's got a nasty habit of dialing up the heat in the thick of battle. To say they don't get along would be an understatement, but Fire and Wind are about to get a crash course in teamwork.

A sinister website known as Pandemonium is unleashing powered-up magic junkies and soul-devouring demons on the unsuspecting citizens of Tokyo. To save the world and lock down the realm of magic once and for all, Kazuma and Ayano must join forces.

Brandishing sacred weaponry, Sister Rosette and her partner Chrono dutifully serve the Magdalene Order, a divine organization that cleans the streets of demonic filth. Their main target: Aion, an indomitable devil reining apocalyptic horrors over America. A doozy of a devil himself, Chrono's true powers can only be released at Rosette's command - draining her own life in exchange. Staring mortality straight in the face, this dynamite pair races against time to destroy Aion and restore the balance between good and evil.

When the high-flying duo encounters a mysterious girl named Alvis, they are thrust into the middle of an endless battle between Anatoray and Disith, two countries systematically destroying each other according to the code of chivalric warfare.
