Well, that’s what’s happened to Kanade Amakusa and his life is a living hell. Why? Because it’s constantly forcing him to make strange choices at the most embarrassing times, and if he doesn’t choose, it HURTS. And to make things worse, often none of the choices are good ones while others seem insane. Like the time one reads “Have a beautiful girl fall from the sky” and then one does. Unfortunately, now the girl has amnesia and she was supposed to help him fix his curse. Is there some weird objective Kanade is supposed to achieve?

As the days count down, each boy group faces its own unique challenges, with returning veterans SolidS struggling to find enough new inspiration to outshine the fresh dazzle of upcoming newbies Growth and QUELL, while the idol group SOARA must learn how to avoid the mistakes that held them back in the past.

SYNOPSIS: Dragons may be huge flying leviathans, but their colossal bodies are also treasure troves of valuable oils and enough succulent flesh to feed small villages. So, even though it’s incredibly dangerous, the profession of draking is still profitable enough for the crews of airships like the Quin Zaza to risk their lives in the deadly pursuit of the airborne behemoths. The mortality rate can be high, however, and the Zaza‘s newest recruit, Takita, will have to learn the ins and outs of her lethal new vocation quickly, even as her reckless crewmate Mika seems determined to set the worst possible example. That leaves it up the rest of the Quin Zaza crew to keep the new rookie on the right side of the food chain as they pursue the deadliest catch of all – Drifting Dragons.

However, while other teams have been placed in restaurants that are already in operation, Soma’s team receives a dilapidated property that must be restored first. But that’s only a minor challenge compared to what comes next, as the top students from all levels of Totsuki compete to become one of the school’s three representatives at BLUE, one of the world’s most legendary culinary competitions.

Language: English & Japanese with English Subtitles

SYNOPSIS: World War III ended 50 years ago, and where Tokyo once stood is a contaminated wasteland where a handful of survivors have gained astonishing powers. Powers they use to fight each other in a battle for supremacy because, you know, that’s what people with super powers do. Destroyer priest Adam Blade is one of the most powerful of the “Needless,” but his inhuman strength and healing are tempered by one crucial flaw: he’s a hopeless horn dog who can’t resist pretty girls. That’s probably why he’s partnered with ditzy shape-shifter Eve, and it’s a weakness that his rivals are all too happy to use against him. Constantly. If you want a respectable hero, you’d be better off ordering a sandwich, but if your idea of fun is kicking tail and chasing it, he’s the MC you want in Needless.

But does Yura have what it takes to stand up to the heat of mock combat? The only way to find out is for her to enter the battle zone and aim for the top.

SYNOPSIS: Cleaving insects in flight with one’s sword was once an impressive display of samurai skill, but since Japan was invaded by the bug-monsters known as the “Mushi,” it’s impressive just to survive a battle with one. That’s the task of the Mushibugyo, the warriors who specialize in fighting the insect scourge, and to erase a stain he brought upon his family’s honor, young Jinbei Tsukishima is determined to join their ranks. It won’t be easy, and the young swordsman has his work cut out for him impressing a team that includes a female ninja with a knack for explosives, a master of shikigami magic, and a roster of other powerful fighters. On the other hand, a certain beautiful and well-endowed innkeeper he rescues quickly becomes a fan, so at least there are some perks to becoming a Mushibugyo.
