Kae Serinuma is what you'd call a "fujoshi." When she sees boys getting along with each other, she loves to indulge in wild fantasies! One day her favorite anime character dies and the shock causes her to lose a ton of weight. Then four hot guys at school ask her out, but that isn't exciting to her at all — she'd rather see them date each other!

The manga recounts the conversations between "Miss Bernard" and her bookworm friends about the Bible; The Tale of the Heike; Guns, Germs, and Steel; The Door into Summer; The Great Passage; Fermat's Last Theorem, and more masterpieces that she has not necessarily read.
Eri Kitamura will star as the title character Sawako "Miss Bernard" Machida. Mikako Komatsu will play the diehard sci-fi otaku Shiori Kanbayashi, Mitsuhiro Ichiki will play the boy Endō, and Aya Suzaki will play longtime Sherlockian Sumika Hasegawa.

A sport you can't half-ass: KEIJO!!!!!!!! whips into Crunchyroll's Fall Lineup pic.twitter.com/KsOENsbL1W— Crunchyroll (@Crunchyroll) October 5, 2016
The manga takes place in an alternate Japan where a sport called "Keijo" by law in 2003 became a sport alongside horse racing, boat racing, and cycling that allows for gambling. In the sport, contestants stand on platforms floating on the water and must use their butts and chests to fight against each other to push each other off the platform. Nozomi Kaminashi, a high school student, aims to join the sport after she graduates. Nozomi was raised in a poor family and hopes to make lots of money by playing Keijo. She grew up training in gymnastics, and she has good balance and flexibility. After high school, Nozomi joins a training boarding school and enters the world of Keijo.

Four boys and girls were watching the vicious battle between the GDF (Global Defense Force), Team Rabbits, and the Wulgaru on television. Members of Team Forn Sei, Chris, Yui, and Ahn had been going through rigorous training at Gurantseere Academy, dreaming of being able to one day be deployed onto the battlefield like their beloved Team Rabbits in their new AHSMB robots. Suddenly, during their time in training, it was decided that the GDF would participate in a dangerous battle to destroy a Wulgaru base. Along with their other fellow cadets, Team Forn awaits the announcement of their assignment for the operation...
