First Look: Machikado Mazoku

Yoshida Yuko is a meek girl in the grips of poverty (trust me, that is somehow relevant to the plot of this comedy) who is descended from a bloodline of demons. She has awakened the ability to revive her family’s true power, but first she must murder a magical girl.

First Look: Maou-sama, Retry!

Some loser gets trapped in his game at midnight because it’s not like THAT’S LITERALLY THE SAME PLOT AS ANOTHER ISEKAI. Granted, this has the added benefit of being SOMEHOW EVEN MORE TRASH. Shocker, I know.

First Look: RobiHachi

Robby Yarge is a man with a weakness for women. This has led him into untold amounts of debt on get-rich-quick schemes. A chance meeting with Hachi Kita brings both characters to reflect on the nature of predictability. Later, it turns out Hachi is working for the very debt collector that is after Robby. After that point any semblance of reason is abandoned and it’s really dumb.

First Look: Fruits Basket

Tohru Honda is a hard-working girl with a tragic past. After her already tenuous living situation becomes upended, she starts living in a tent in the woods. She happens to set up camp in the land of the Soma family, including her classmate Yuki. After finding out about their situation, they decide to take her into their home, and Tohru quickly finds out Soma family has a bizarre secret.

First Look: Kaguya-sama: Love Is War

Kaguya Shinomiya and Miyuki Shirogane like each other, but their personalities have caused them to be trapped by their collective embarrassment and egos into an incredibly ludicrous game of romantic brinkmanship. It’s pretty darn cute.

First Look: The Quintessential Quintuplets

Uesugi Fuutarou is your usual misanthropic nobody, incredibly smart but caring for nothing but the cost/benefit analysis of his day to day existence. In order to help his struggling family out of debt, he agrees to be a tutor to the wealthy Nakano family. In what clearly seems like the set up to a visual novel considering this is based off of a manga, to his chagrin, he finds out he actually has to tutor five (identical?) sisters at the same time, and none of them are particularly interested in his services.
