Kamisama no Inai Nichiyoubi: God as turned his back to the world, and now nobody gets born and nobody dies. Instead, people who should die merely continue with their lives. Only the so-called Gravekeepers can dig and consecrate graves that the undead can slumber eternally in, finally finding peace. Ai's mother told her that she is a Gravekeeper, and she has dug graves for all of the people in the village. Then a mysterious man visits the town (perhaps not coincidentally using the name of her father (according to her mother)) and starts to 'murder' the whole village. Turns out that Ai was not the Gravekeeper after all? With nowhere to go, Ai decides to follow him.
Really interesting concept. I was intrigued by what the writers will do with the setting and how Ai's story will continue.

Genei o Kakeru Taiyou: Akari has a gift for fortune-telling with tarot cards. She works part-time at a fortune telling shop, but lately there have been some strange incidents around the shop! And then some kind of monster attacks her! And then her tarot cards come to life and fight for her! And it didn't make any sense!
Quite lacklustre story, with a bland main character. If you're really into tarot, then you might want to watch it based on that. Others should probably steer clear.

Kin-iro Mosaic: Shinobu went on a home-stay in the UK when she was 10. There she met Alice, the daughter of the house. Once they got to know each other, they became great friends. Now, five years later, Alice will come to live in Japan at Shinobu's house! Great news, of course -- except that Alice's view of Japan is a bit... skewed.
The start of it reminded us of Ikoku Meiro no Croisee, but it quickly took on a much more modern feel. It's interesting to see Alice's misconceptions about Japan (she is dissapointed that Shinobu's room doesn't have tatami), and it might be a lot of fun to watch.
