Sarah’s Pick: Konbini Kareshi

Where to Watch: Not Currently Streaming

Many romance or rom-com anime these days fall in the categories of either harem or reverse-harem—meaning that the main character is surrounded by a group of people trying to win his or her heart. Why Sarah is so excited for Konbini Karashi is that it bucks this trend by focusing on a set of couples and their relationships. Read more about it below.

Toshi is obsessed with Fate (and he’s not the only one). With a love of the franchise’s anime, games, and written works, he’s more than a little excited to see this new team-based twist on the idea of mages and legendary heroes battling to receive a wish from the holy grail.

Ken’s Pick: Chronos Ruler

Where to Watch: Not Currently Streaming

It’s not the idea of men fighting demons that eat time which has Ken so excited for this one; it’s that the anime’s story comes from a non-Japanese person. For more of Ken’s thoughts on this anime, click the link below.

Renato’s Pick: Knight’s & Magic

For Renato, it’s the creators behind this anime that have him looking forward to it. Not only are the character and mecha designs coming from the staff of various Macross projects, the co-creator of the franchise is also involved. As a lover of classic robot anime, Renato can’t help but be intrigued. To read his full thoughts on the anime, click the link below.

Kat’s Pick: NTR: Netsuzou Trap

Where to Watch: Crunchyroll

As a queer woman with experience teaching LGTBQ students in Japan, this tale of two Japanese school girls’ secret relationship is a story that hits close to home. Add in that they are cheating on their boyfriends with each other and you have a situation that’s as heartbreaking as it is realistic. To read Kat’s full thoughts, click the link below.
