Shakugan no Shana Season 1

Well, the last release met rather underwhelming approval so I guess you want more anime shit.
Ah, don't worry, this series is not THAT bad but don't expect a story worth talking about either.
The authors/anime producers are apparently aware of that fact and blessed us with two bonus episodes "Shakugan no Shanatan 1+2" where they poke fun at their own series. After watching the series (or at least a few episodes) you'll appreciate them too, i think.

Anyway, take this premade synopsis because I'm too lazy to write one myself.

Description from AnimeNFO
He had thought his normal days would last forever, until they were ended abruptly by an encounter with a girl with red hair and eyes. He named her Shana.

Not long after he enters high school, Sakai Yuji's normal days come to an end. He sees something bizarre on his way home: people are frozen in a strange fire, and a monster that looks like a large doll is attacking them. Just when he's about to be killed, a girl in a dark cloak wielding a large sword appears, and slices the monster in half. Although Yuji survives the strange encounter, the girl informs him of a desolate truth: "You don't 'exist' anymore."

She calls herself a Flame Haze who hunts "Kuze no Tomogara"; intruders from another world. She explains to him that he is a "Torch", a substitute of Yuji whose "existence" has already been devoured. She also told him that he is a special Torch, "Mystis", which contains a precious item in it. When he looks at his chest, he sees within himself a faint flame, just as she said.

It is in this way that his eternal struggle alongside the girl begins.

Star Wreck - In the Pirkinning

This movie is an internet legend and shouldn't require much explaination. In short it's a Star Trek meets Babylon 5 parody. It oviously ain't an anime.

The storyline goes something like this: Captain Pirk along with his subordinates - the Plingon Dwarf and the Android Info - is stranded in earth's past and decides to conquer the world. Who cares about time paradoxons if you live a shitty life in finnland when you could be traveling the universe anyway!

Star Wreck has a pretty long tradition but this movie was the first one that included professional CGI and human actors (you might enjoy the wiki entry for more info). And it's a feast for the eyes watching the spaceships of the Star Trek and Babylon 5 universe blasting each other apart. The story is pretty funny too, including many insider jokes (Dwarf: Tactical is still missing a chair!) and gags and puns.

It was so popular, it was even dubbed to - japanese. Yes that's right, there's a japanese version out there, although I chose to release the original finnish version with english subtitles.

If you want different subtitles or the japanese version then simply pay the creators' homepage a visit and download everything there:
And if you're hooked you can even check out their older works, although they look quite less professional but are still quite funny. Also keep an eye out for their latest project, Iron Sky, where nazis went to the moon in 1945 ... and are now coming back. Might take a while till they finish, though ... it took them 7 years to shot their last movie.

I hope you don't mind the change from anime to finnish fan-made movies. I personally think it's more than worth it. Enjoy !

School Rumble Season 1

Description taken from AnimeNfo:
Tsukamoto Tenma is a second grader in high school who, like other girls her age, falls in love. However, she could not bring herself to confess her love to her classmate Karasumaru. She discovers that Karasumaru will transfer out next year and, with the help of her friends and her little sister Yakumo, tries to confess her love. Tenma also uses unorthodox methods such as disguising herself as a nurse or shooting arrows with a love letter attached to express her feelings for him.

On the other hand, Harima Kenji, a delinquent, has feelings for Tenma. Unfortunately, Tenma's preoccupation with Karasumara ensures that she doesn't notice Harima's affection, much to Harima's dismay. To make matters worse, one day, he sees Tenma and Karasumaru having lunch together. This causes him to skip school and embark on a journey of enlightenment.
