Super Lovers: Haru's mother lives in Canada, and when he comes to visit her for the summer, he is tasked with looking after his adoptive brother Ran, who is still just a kid. Ran lived in an orphanage, and he's kind of a wild child: spends all of the day outside and is only friendly to the dogs. But with some hard work, Haru slowly gains Ran's trust and gets him to behave a bit more like a human child.
It's a yaoi series, but the first episode is just build-up. But two (adoptive) brothers with a huge age difference shagging up? Creepy.

Kuromukuro: An ancient artifact was found, so of course the UN built a lab to investigate it. Yukina is the daughter of the lab director, but she just isn't that smart as her mother... One day she visits the lab to return a forgotten cell phone, and all hell breaks loose when several objects from outer space land on Earth -- they're attack mecha! And then the artifact activates with Yukina there!
The setup strongly reminded me of Neon Genesis Evangelion, which is not a bad thing at all. It's all very polished and there is quite the plot twist at the end. I really want to know how this continues.

Kuma Miko: In a mountain village, humans and bears have learned to live together. The bears even speak the human language. Up the mountain is a shrine dedicated to the bears, and Machi, a middle school girl, is the shrine maiden there. She takes care of the ceremonies, but before and after she chats with the bear, who is quite friendly. But Machi is thinking of leaving the little village behind and moving to the city.
Small-village life with a touch of the supernatural (and the history is just a tiny little bit lewd, which amused me). A very pastoral feel, like Non Non Biyori, but then with a talking bear being around too. We liked it.
