Basilisk: Ouka Ninpouchou
The battle for succession that continued for three generations of shogun in the Keichou era culminated in a gruesome battle of ninja arts between the Kouga and Iga clans. Amidst a rain of flower petals, a man and woman who had decided to live for love were separated once again, beautiful in their transience. However, it is said that by the hand of Hattori Hanzo’s adopted son, Kyouhachirou, these two flower petals, whether temporarily or permanently, were given life again and left two mementoes behind. These children, born with a destiny of their own, were called Kouga Hachirou and Iga Hibiki. The former had eyes like his father’s, and the latter had eyes like her mother’s.
It is now the Kan’ei era, and the land is at peace. As ninjas begin to disappear into the shadows after being deemed unnecessary, The Kouga and Iga clans ask a favour of Hachirou and Hibiki in hopes of reinforcing their foundations.
Ryuuou no Oshigoto!
The story is about a teenage boy who happens to be a shogi master. One day, a nine-year-old girl turns up at his house, requesting to be taken as his disciple. From there, all kinds of wacky hijinks ensue. Eventually, Ai’s honest enthusiasm helps Yaichi rediscover the passion he had begun to lose.
gdgd Men’s Party
In the series, Light and Yomi are spending their daily lives happily playing video games. One night when everyone else is asleep, Light receives an invitation from Alpha, a messenger for someone named King. Light and Yomi are then sucked into another world, where they must undertake a quest to rescue Princess Melody from the demon lord. Light thinks this must be his destiny, while Yomi thinks it’s kind of annoying. They form a party with Alpha to start their quest. Alpha, as it turns out, is an AI robot, and he has a program that allows them to raise their levels while slowly continuing their adventure.
Yowamushi Pedal: Glory Line
Finally, we are getting the fourth season!
Kaijuu Girls: Ultra Kaijuu Gijinka Keikaku 2nd Season
Humanity’s battle of many years with the kaiju, giant monsters, has finally come to an end. Now that Earth has entered an age of peace, girls with the souls of kaiju have begun to appear, giving them the ability to transform into kaiju. They are known as the Kaiju Girls, and this is the powerful, transient, beautiful, and at times easygoing story of the strange fate these girls bear.
Yay we are also getting the second season today! I know a couple people who will be happy about this!
Have any of the above caught your attention? Some have caught mine, like Overlord II and Yowamushi Pedal. Will you be adding any of the above to your ‘watch list’? I know I will be.
