SYNOPSIS: For 15 years, mankind has fought the dreaded Demon King, but when the heroic warrior known as Hero finally storms the King’s Castle, he’s shocked to learn that the Demon King is, in fact, a Demon Queen, and she’s been waiting for him with a most unusual proposal. As both humans and demons are only united by their common enemies, she points out, it’s almost inevitable that no matter which side wins the war, the various factions of the victors will turn on each other. However, if the adorable “King” had a collaborator on the human side, together they could end the war in a way that would ensure lasting prosperity for both sides. It’s an idea so crazy that it just might work as the most unlikely of partners join forces in MAOYU – Archenemy & Hero.

SYNOPSIS: On a barren world almost devoid of life, the only efficient way of distributing essential supplies and cargo between the isolated pockets of civilization is by using giant zeppelin-like airships.

That’s where birds of prey like Kylie, Reona, Chika, Emma, Kate, Zara and their Nakajima Ki-43 Hayabusa fighters come in. In a deadly business where a single mistake can mean instant death, the lady falcons of the Kotobuki Squadron will outfly and outshoot anything else in the stratosphere. Get ready to venture where only Angels dare to tread as the epic TV series becomes a spectacular motion picture in The Magnificent Kotobuki – The Movie.

Then her hot new roommate turns out to be a guy in drag. Yikes. And when the most popular girl in school catches Kanako’s eye, our poor heroine has to compete with all of the school’s OTHER similarly obsessed girls… which seems to be most of them. To further complicate things are her roommate’s rude maid, their cat-eared dorm leader, her roommate’s identical twin sister, and WAY too many other attractive girls, and the question is whether Kanako will die from frustration first, or her almost constant nosebleeds.
