Summary (I dont think I need to tell you where I copied it from T.T):

The series begins on November 22, 2010 with a missile strike against an uninhabited area of Japan, claiming no victims. This apparent terrorist act is referred to as "Careless Monday" and disregarded by most people. Three months later, in the United States of America, a young Japanese woman named Saki Morimi is visiting Washington D.C. as part of her graduation trip. When she gets into trouble, a mysterious Japanese man, who introduces himself as Akira Takizawa, helps her through it. The man appears to have no memory and is completely naked, carrying only a gun and a cell phone charged with 8.2 billion yen in digital money.

Thoughts:

After I read the summary, I was like "meh, too serious, it would probably bore the shit out of me". But hey, the promo as convinced me to watch it! The characters looks likeable, the plot has potential, plus it's laced with comedy and possibly romance? Sounds good to me!

Summary (Actually, I had to copy the summary from the Spring Timetable Picture that I posted earlier on T.T):

Riannon is set to be sacrificed to appease resurrected demon lord, named Arawn. As her brother Arthur attempts to rescue her. Arawn defires those who resurrected him and frees Riannon from her captors, leading to her admiration for him. Arawn acts as a leader and assembles a party of companions.

Because this is wikipedia's one:

A Demon King named Arawn was sealed away for 1,000 years. After a girl named Rhiannon (Ri-a-n-no-n) released him, they started to travel together and she becomes emotionally attached to him.

(Pretty feeble, isn't it?)

Thoughts:

Unlike Eden of the East, this was a "meh" when I read the summary and still is a "meh" after the promo video. Still I'll check out the first episode but it just feels way too generic... I don't know how to explain it. I feel like it's been done before. Just slightly different. Well, final word is it doesn't interest me at all. But if other Bloggers are interested then maybe those of you who are interested are in luck!

PS: Since the spring shows seem to be popping up here and there in some sites and torrents, I'm going to give you post a quick preview on the New Animes of Spring 2009 which will be following this update shortly. (Sorry for doing this a bit late T.T)
