World Conquest Zvezda Plot

World Conquest is about a young girl named Kate Hoshimiya with a goal of world conquest. Episode 3's target of conquest is the mindless and insensitive aliens disguised as humans who wander the earth spreading poisonous gas. Known as "smokers" to us humans, they spread death and disease to all in their radius. Kate and her Zvezda lackeys rally the population to stand up against these feral beasts and ultimately drop a soul-destroying bomb on the remaining hold-outs who refuse to give up their disgusting habit. This, however, has no effect because smokers do not have souls. Mr. Alpaca of the "New Alpaca" brand of cigarettes is a hip, cool mascot that appeals to both children and adults.

Buddy Complex

Despite the title, Buddy Complex is not some comedy buddy cop anime. Rather, it's the latest homoerotic giant robot anime from Sunrise. The makers of memorable shows such as Code Geass, Gundam, and Valvrave have now given us the mediocre, effortless, and nonsensical Buddy Complex. The two main "buddies" of the show consist of Aoba Watase and Dio Weinberg who frequently perform "coupling" in their giant robots via the buddy system. And like all other mecha shows, downtime allows for hanging out in front of the vending machines (where lemon is always an option).

Soul Eater is about a death scythe named Soul Eater who's friends with Black Star, Death The Kid, and other people with names just as ridiculous.  In episode 34, Soul's soul possess Maka's alpaca and bullies her until she cries.

Squid Girl

Squid Girl was once an ordinary child until she was attacked by a squid. With a head now topped with a squid and a hair full of tentacles, the young girl lost her consciousness and Squid Girl was born (sound familiar?). Keen on punishing humanity for polluting the ocean, Squid Girl departs on a mission to inkvade all mankind. As her first task, she attempts to set up a base of operations at the ocean-side Lemon House. Thwarted by only a couple of pushy female employees, Squid Girl quickly learns she has a talent for everything... except inkvading.
