Full Metal Panic Teenage Sousuke Sagara's past is a mystery. He's lived a strict military life since training for guerilla terrorism as a child. Extremely logical, an experienced fighter and survivor; he's the best of the fighting elite. Now Sousuke must face what might be the one situation he can't handle: high school!

Heat Guy J Android J was built in secret to combat crime in the oceanic city-nation of Judoh. While J appears to be human, the illusion quickly disappears in clouds of scorching steam when he fights. Even the most feared criminals find themselves on the run from the underground legend known as the Heat Guy! From the creators of Escaflowne.

Please Teacher There is something extraordinary about Mizuho, the new teacher. Kindhearted, pretty, and, um, inhumanly endowed, it doesn't take a whole day for high-schooler Kei to realize that Mizuho is actually the beautiful alien he had encountered the night before. Unfortunately, he has to learn her other secrets the hard way. Adults-only anime!
