How did I not know about the Angel Heart anime until today? I completely overlooked it for 8 years even though I really loved the manga. AARGH.
It's a parallel universe to City Hunter where City Hunter/Ryo's wife Kaori has just died. A young Taiwanese mafia assassin, Glass Heart, has essentially just killed a man in front of his young daughter. This drives her to suicide, but her organization saves her and Kaori's heart is transplanted into Glass Heart. Glass Heart is haunted by images of a man and memories she doesn't recognize and travels to Japan to find out more. Ryo and Glass Heart meet and Ryo adopts her as his and Kaori's daughter.
It's essentially a version of City Hunter that explores the romanticized notion that heart transplant survivors can gain strong memories and emotions from their donor's heart. I like it because Glass Heart (renamed Xiang Ying) is not even remotely Ryo's romantic interest (which you might've expected) and therefore it didn't degenerate into a trashy romcom.

And, y'know hot Taiwanese hitman chick.

Oh yeah, and City Hunter's good if you like old beat-cop/city detective-y stuff.

EDIT: crap, it made me cry T-T

I wonder how long it'll be before we start seeing actual English releases of light novels that've gotten anime versions.

Haruhi is already being translated....

To aru no Majutsu no Index next please!!!!
... I actually haven't the slightest for what publishers want to do with the light novels. They should probably continue to have an international publisher translate them, because what do we got? ... Viz. Tokyopop. Yeeeeeah.... I don't think I could bear reading light novel translations from THOSE.

I dunno, Tokyopop has done pretty well by a couple of their smaller runs... Like BLAME!.

Actually, mostly just BLAME!

I want the Bakemonogatari books. And SAO. I need to finish Nisemonogatari soon...

Is it weird that Binbogami Ga! is one of my new favorite anime?

Naw, it was a cute story with a very stable moral, and fun characters. I will admit I got a lil' sidetracked and ended up watching something else, but it's definitely something i'd like to go back to later.

Hell, even if the rest of the cast were boring, Momiji would've been enough to keep me watching.
