Aria sounds delightfully breezy, almost like a "vacation" anime to help beat anime burnout.
Dice- I remember once reading an unfavorable review of Battle Athletes, but then saw the first couple of episodes of it at a small time comic convention and rather enjoying it.
And another aspect of why Sorcerer Hunters stokes my guilty pleasure buttons: Watching anime subtitled is the superior way to watch, but the dub has some great dialogue such as Chocolate saying: "Why do you run, darling? Am I more woman than you can bear?" and Carrot replies: "Actually, I'd rather make love to a bear." The subtitles don't do that. And, surprisingly enough, the dub is actually decent. That's a shocker since I remember 1990s ADV anime dubs sucking, so I'm pleasantly surprised that they progressively stepped up their game. I think US release for Sorcerer Hunters was 2001.
I can't help it. Sorcerer Hunters is not a very good series. I mean, it's disjointed, sometimes choppy, often tropey, kinda throws you into the middle of things from the get-go... yet I happen to really enjoy it, in spite of myself.
And although it's an "American manga," I do hold a guilty pleasure toward Vampire Cheerleaders. It's fluff. It's drivel. It's nothing really that great. But dammit, I likes it! http://www.vampirecheerleaders.net
