But help is on the way, in the form of the unofficial, secretive, and thoroughly mysterious Pretty Boy Detective Club! Rumored to solve problems within the school (most of which they themselves might as well created) for reasons aesthetic rather than financial, these five gorgeous boys sweep Mayumi into their world of excitement, danger, and overwhelming beauty.

Tokyo Babylon 2021 anime delayed due to plagiarism

Unfortunately the current work in progress for the Tokyo Babylon 2021 anime project has scrapped over multiple accounts of plagiarism.

The issues first arose when Character Design Art was posted online and fans pointed out that costume designs for two characters had been copied from other sources with very little changes. The designs in question were taken from a 2017 Volks Doll and a photo of Yeri from K-pop group Red Velvet then applied to Hokuto and Subaru Sumeragi. However other instances were found by the production team upon investigation, putting the whole project in jeopardy.

The series was supposed to begin in April 2021 but has now been delayed as production work will have to be restarted from scratch to avoid any copyright infringement.

My childhood friend Shida Kuroha seems to have feelings for me. She lives next door, and is small and cute. With an outgoing character, she’s the caring Onee-san type, this being one of her greatest strengths.

…But, I already have my first love, the beautiful idol of our school, and the award-winning author, Kachi Shirokusa! Thinking about it rationally, I should have no chances with her, but, while walking home from school, she only talks to me, with a smile even! I might actually have a chance, don’t you think?!

Or so I thought, but then I heard that Shirokusa already has a boyfriend, and my life took a turn for the worse. I want to die. Why is it not me?! Even though she was my first love… As I was drowning in despair and depression, Kuroha whispered.

—If it’s that tough for you, then how about we get revenge? The best revenge ever, that is~

Eighty Six 86 anime trailer

Eighty Six is a military drama anime, based on an award winning light novel series and starts airing in Japan in April 2021.

The Republic of San Magnolia.

For a long time, this country has been besieged by its neighbor, the Giadian Empire, which created a series of unmanned drones called the Legion. After years of painstaking research, the Republic finally developed autonomous drones of their own, turning the one-sided struggle into a war without casualties—or at least, that’s what the government claims.

In truth, there is no such thing as a bloodless war. Beyond the fortified walls protecting the eighty-five Republic territories lies the “nonexistent” Eighty-Sixth Sector. The young men and women of this forsaken land are branded the Eighty-Six and, stripped of their humanity, pilot the “unmanned” weapons into battle…

Shinn directs the actions of a detachment of young Eighty-Sixers while on the battlefield. Lena is a “handler” who commands the detachment from the remote rear with the help of special communication.

The farewell story of the severe and sad struggle of these two begins!
