They describe Hitorijime My Hero

High schooler Masahiro Setagawa is a fairly helpless delinquent, so much so that the neighborhood bullies use him to run their errands. His life changes when he meets high school teacher Kosuke Oshiba, a man whose fighting abilities have earned him a powerful reputation on the streets. Oshiba finds himself with a desire to protect Setagawa, and despite swearing that he’s not interested in men, Setagawa finds himself getting more involved in Oshiba’s  affairs…


Yukina Hiiro (Gakuen Heaven) will direct the series, with Yusei Naruse making his debut in TV series composition. Animation Production will be helmed by Encourage Films (Love Rice, Etotama).


They describe Love & Lies

In order to increase birth rates, Japan implements a capability calculation that assigns partners to young people when they turn 16. Those who deviate from their assigned partners are severely punished. Yukari Nejima has been in love with Misaki Tazaki since grade school, and finally confesses to her on his 16th birthday, only to find out he has been assigned to Ririna Sanada. Originally not thrilled, Lilina agrees to allow Yukari and Misaki to continue their illicit relationship in hopes of learning more about love. Things get complicated when love and lies start to intersect.


The series will be helmed by director Seiki Takuno (Yamada-kun and the Seven Witches) and the studio LIDENFILMS.
