Video - Three anime recommendations from Nanalew

The lovely Shawna Howson recommends these three awesome anime

Shawna Howson (aka Nanalew) has some anime recommendations for us. Cute is what we aim for :-) Barakamon The story of a calligrapher who moves to the remote Goto Islands off the western coast of Kyushu, and his adventures with the people of the island. Fruits Basket Yes, the word "Fruits" in the title is always plural: the spelling originates from the transcription of the English word "fruit" into Japanese. The title comes from the name of a popular game played in Japanese elementary schools, which is alluded to in the series. The series tells the story of Tohru Honda, an orphan girl who meets Shigure Sohma, and learns that twelve members of the Sohma family are possessed by the animals of the Chinese zodiac. They area cursed to turn into their animal forms when they are stressed, or... embraced by anyone of the opposite sex. Yona of the Dawn The story follows the redemption of Yona, the sole princess to the kingdom of Kouka, and her bodyguard and childhood friend Son Hak. They escape from the castle to Hak's birthplace (no, we're not spoilering why :-)
