This season promises something for everyone, guaranteed to ignite your anime spark with a vibrant selection that will leave you grinning from ear to ear.

For the Hopeless Romantics:

  • A Condition Called Love (Premieres April 4th): This show is like a warm hug wrapped in a love letter. Meet Hotaru, a high school freshman whose love life is stuck on “loading.” Enter Hananoi, a charming classmate sporting a past heartbreak that clings to him like a poorly-fitting scarf. Hotaru’s kind gesture leads to a hilariously awkward confession that will have you rooting for them from the first scene. Expect relatable characters, classic coming-of-age fluff, and enough butterflies to fill a butterfly sanctuary.  This one feels like a classic shoujo manga come to life, and I can’t wait to see how their relationship blossoms!

Hysterical Out-of-This-World Rom-Com with an Unexpected Twist 

  • Astro Note (Premieres April 5th): Astro Note throws a side-splitting curveball at the rom-com genre, and it’s a home run!

But winning her heart proves tricky when your neighbors are a riotous crew of weirdos and unexplained phenomena become your new normal. Oh, and did we mention Mira’s a secret alien? This show promises laugh-out-loud situations and a refreshingly bizarre twist on the classic rom-com formula. The dynamic between Takumi and Mira is pure entertainment, and you’ll be desperately waiting to see where their wacky situations take them next.  Personally, this one had me laughing most of the time – the aliens and the oddball neighbors are hilarious! This hilariously original take on the Rom-Com genre and character interactions will make you smile.
