About Outburst Dreamer Boys:

“Mizuki Hijiri just transferred schools, but her chances of having a quiet high school life shatter when she meets the eccentric members of the Hero Club! These “chunibyo” dudes and their youthful delusions of grandeur quickly sweep Mizuki into a world of outrageous hijinks and nonstop fantasy. Noda dreams of becoming a hero. Takashima, resident otaku, longs to date only 2D girls. Tsukumo fancies himself the school’s master manipulator. And then there’s Nakamura, a reincarnation of an angel… or a devil, depending on the day. Mizuki has her work cut out for her in the Hero Club, because while their delusions might be the stuff of fantasy, the trouble they cause is as real as it gets!”

About Val x Love:

“Takuma Akutsu has a “unique” appearance that, unfortunately, leaves him feeling isolated and alone among his high school classmates who shun him. Enter the Valkyries sent by Odin himself! Once they descend into Takuma’s life, he discovers they aren’t scared of him one bit! In fact, they’re super keen to get to know him better. As the intimacy between the Valkyries and Takuma grows, so too do their powers. And that’s a good thing because they’re on orders to slay the vicious monsters intent on destroying the earth. How far will they go to deepen their connection, level up, and save the world… by any means necessary!?!”
