Hakuoki Season 1
“Her father holds the key to Japan's bloodshed. She must find him.
Chizuru Yukimura is on a mission to hind her father, after having heard no word from him for over a month. After unwittingly becoming both a victim and a witness to a crime when she travels to Kyoto, Chizuru falls into the hands of the Shinsengumi, the Emperor's special police force. Just like her, they are after her father as well but their intentions are far more serious.
It appears the Shinsengumi are hiding something deadly from the public. Known as Furies, they are vampire-like creatures of their own making in their pursuit of the ultimate enhancing drug. But the Furies maybe the lease of their worries when Chizuru's family may hold a deadlier secret, that can ultimately change the course of Japan's future.”
“It happened with a slip.
Koyomi Araragi thought he was done with the supernatural after his recent brush with vampires but that belief is short lived when Senjyogahara, the aloof girl in school, is as light as a feather. The cause? A crab Gob with a penchant for the vulnerable. But that's just the tip of the ice burg as she's not the only individual suffering from the effects with their brush with the paranormal.
A lost snail who can't find their way home no matter how hard they try, and a mysterious deadly arm that can only bring misery despite how hard one wishes. The forever “Mr. Nice Guy” Koyomi, can't help but embroil on these matters.”
Bodacious Space Pirates Part 2
“What is a pirate captain without a crew?
Just as Marika's settling into the pirate life, her crew has fallen sick! And so with her crew out of commission, Marika must turn to the only people she trusts to get the job done. Her solution, the members of the Space Yacht club of course!
But Marika's new lifestyle and her father's legacy maybe in danger with the growing threat of pirate hunters lead by Quartz Christie, the Grand Cross' Captain. Eliminating any pirates in their wake, the Grand Cross, is a force to be reckoned with and the crew of the Bentenmaru is not the only pirate ship feeling the heat. However, a duel to decide their fate with Marika at the helm – is it a recipe for disaster or the ultimate plan?
Cross the high seas of space once again, on board the Bentenmaru for the action-packed conclusion of Bodacious Space Pirates!”
GYO Tokyo Fish attack!
“The day the fish fight back!
A horrible rotting stench has accompanied Kaori's trip with her friends for graduation. The source? A fish on mechanical legs. But that fish is part of a larger issue, as soon enough a nation wide invasion of these creatures is upon them and they're carrying something far worse than foul odor.
With Tokyo under siege by these creatures, Kaori cuts her graduation trip short in order to rescue Tadashi, her boyfriend, before he too becomes a victim. But it becomes a daunting task when the city is barely recognizable and there are fish around every corner threatening her own safety.
A biological experiment gone wrong or the simple natural progress of evolution, Kaori might find out a truth she may not want to know in her quest to rescue Tadashi from this pandemic.”
