Gonna be the Twin-Tail!! (a.k.a. Ore Twintail ni Narimasu)

Twin-tails—also known as pigtails –are a crowning achievement among coiffeurs, and Gonna be the Twin-Tail!! pays homage to this most stunning of hairstyles. Helmed by the director of Oreimo, this dynamite rom-com stars Nobunaga Shimazaki (who stars in Free! as protagonist Haruka Nanase) as Soji, an honorable lover of twin-tails, as well as Maaya Uchida (Noragami’s Hiyori). It’s going to be an action-packed ride, so tie your hair safely back and tune in!

synopsis:

Soji is an average high school boy and devoted lover of pigtails. But when monsters with a thirst for human spirit energy invade earth, Soji (along with the help of a mysterious pig-tailed stranger) must transform into a pigtailed girl to defeat them.

in search of lost future

In Search of the Lost Future (a.k.a. Ushinawareta Mirai o Motomete)

First episode available October 4th, 2014
Streaming Saturdays at 12:30pm CT/ 1:30pm ET

In Search of the Lost Future (Ushinawareta Mirai wo Motomete, also known as Waremete in Japan) is based on a hit romance and mystery visual novel by Trumple, featuring absolutely stunning character designs and illustrations, and, of course, gorgeous girls. The title is a reference to Marcel Proust’s In Search of Lost Time, a dreamy classic French novel about life, love and memory. The official Japanese title builds on this French connection even more, with the subtitle Nous dépassons beaucoup d’aujourd’hui, et changerons le destin quelque jour—We pass by much today, and someday will change our fate. What does this seemingly ordinary romance anime have to do with fate and the future? You’ll have to watch the series to find out.

synopsis:

A series of increasingly strange events have been reported at Uchihama Academy’s soon-to-be-replaced aging school building. When the student council grows concerned about the spectral encounters, puzzling sleep disorders, and bizarre mishaps, they enlist the aid of the Astronomy Club to crack the case before it’s too late. One evening after school, club member Sou Akiyama is rocked by a sudden earthquake – and an encounter with a beautiful and mysterious naked girl who appears to know him even though he has no recollection of ever meeting her.  The next day, the very same girl arrives at his school as a transfer student who’s interested in joining the Astronomy Club. In the blink of an eye, Sou’s fate – along with the fates of all the girls in his club – begin to change in very dramatic and mysterious ways.

Daitoshokan

Daitoshokan no Hitsujikai (name subject to change)

Streaming date and time coming soon!

Daitoshokan no Hitsujikai – A Good Librarian Like a Good Shepherd (literally “The Shepherd of the Great Library”) is based on a visual novel by August, creators of Fortune Arterial. In the original Daitoshokan, the player controls Kyotaro Kakei, and ordinary (?!) boy who interacts with five main heroines. It’s a bestselling dating sim with great humor and cute girls, but we’ll also caution you that it’s not only a rosy-slice-of-ordinary-life story—there are some slight supernatural elements that we won’t spoil yet.

synopsis:
Kyotaro Kakei is a shy student at a prestigious academy known for its massive library. The sole member of the school’s library club, Kyotaro’s always been better with books than girls – until a text message from the mysterious “Shepherd” hints that his fate will soon be changing. Life gets wild in a hurry after a vision allows Kyotaro to rescue Tsugumi, a beautiful girl who also received a text message from the “Shepherd.” Soon, Tsugumi announces her intentions to join the Library Club and, with Kyotaro’s help, make school life much more interesting! It doesn’t take long for a host of other pretty girls to follow Tsugumi’s lead and join the club in the hopes of spicing up their boring academy lives. But just who is this “Shepherd,” what does he or she have to do with the Library Club’s sudden popularity, and how in the world will Kyotaro survive being surrounded by all these girls!?

The King’s close advisor implemented a large-scale witch-hunt. The tragic victims of this hunt were not witches, however, but Makai Knights and Makai Priests. One Makai Priestess gave birth to a child while being burned at the stake. That child carried the bloodlines of the Golden Knight. Although he was saved by his father, a Makai Knight himself, the newborn, León Luís, suffered greatly from the unjust death of his mother. And so he vowed to learn the ways of a Makai Knight from his father, Germán Luís, and use his training to seek revenge. During his battles against the demons known as “Horrors,” León must gradually approach reality and accept the truth.

Meanwhile, the powerful former adviser to the King, Mendoza, banished Prince Alfonso and his mother while the king was bedridden. Eager to reclaim his kingdom and save his people, Alfonso embarks on a quest to find the legendary Knight – but destiny holds a twist of fate in store for him.
