KING OF PRISM: Shiny Seven Stars is the third spinoff after the KING OF PRISM by PrettyRhythm and King of Prism: PRIDE the HERO movies. Crunchyroll describes the story of Shiny Seven Stars:
After appearing in the Prism King Cup representing Edel Rose, and getting a glimpse of what it was like to a be a future Prism Star, Ichijo Shin entered Kakyoin Academy's High School division in spring and became a first-year high school student. Koji, Hiro, and Kazuki from Over The Rainbow left Edel Rose and established a new agency. They were all keeping quite busy.
Meanwhile, after having the title of Prism King stolen by Hiro, the leader of Schwarz Rose, Norizuki Jin, proposes PRISM.1, which would decide a new king other than Prism King. He then announces that Schwarz Rose and Edel Rose will be competing with each other.
While everyone is preparing for PRISM.1, Yukinojo is torn between being in kabuki and the Prism Show. He doesn't feel like he's living up to his potential in either and doesn't know what to do. His father sees him like this and tells him to leave the world of Prism Shows...
This is a story about the hardships and conflicts young men wanting to become Prism Stars are facing, and the Prism Show will show what's inside of their hearts.
We will capture your heart with Prism Shows presented to you with the most stunning visuals.

The anime will be streaming worldwide except in Asia, starting on Monday at 2:05 p.m. EDT.
Sentai Filmworks describes Ao-chan Can't Study!:
Ao Horie's father, a popular erotic fiction author, chose Ao's name because A stands for “apple” and O stands for “orgy”! Desperate to escape her father's legacy and get into a prestigious university, Ao devotes herself to studying instead of pursuing romance. She has no time for boys, but there's just one problem: Kijima, her handsome and popular classmate, just confessed his love to her! And to make matters worse, she can't stop thinking dirty thoughts about him! Looks like escaping her father's influence will be harder than she thought

Sentai Filmworks describes NAMUAMIDABUTSU! -UTENA-:
Long before superheroes, there were legends. One of them begins with Shaka Nyorai, whose bravery and enlightenment once saved humanity forever. But forever is fleeting because Mara, the personification of Earthly desires, forges a corrupt coalition with the devil to again visit wrath and vengeance upon humankind. To counter Mara's cruel attack, Taishakuten and Bonten, divine beings, must join forces with the Thirteen Buddhas. Can the allied powers of light defeat the vicious onslaught and save humankind in their darkest hour?

Sentai Filmworks describes Senryu Girl:
At first glance Yukishiro Nanako seems like a normal high school girl, but she has a notable eccentricity: instead of speaking, she communicates only through written senryu poetry! This means she expresses herself only in 5-7-5 syllables. To most this might seem like an inconvenience, but for Nanako and her ex-delinquent bestie, Busujima Eiji, it adds to the experience of their high school lives as they run the Literature Club.
The anime is based on Masakuni Igarashi's manga series, and premiered in Japan on April 5.
The anime is streaming in the United States, Canada, the United Kingdom and Ireland, South Africa, the Netherlands, Scandinavia, and Central and South America starting with the first two episodes on Friday at 9:25 p.m. EDT.
Sentai Filmworks describes Why the Hell are You Here, Teacher!?:
Ichiro Sato is about as average as a student can get… except for his above-average ability to land himself in totally awkward, intensely risqué situations with his no-nonsense teacher, Kana Kojima! Ichiro has his hands full dealing with these steamy shenanigans and unexpected encounters in the most unlikely places. At least it can't get any worse, right?
The anime is based on Soborou's manga series, and premiered in Japan on April 7.
The anime is streaming in the United States, Canada, the United Kingdom and Ireland, South Africa, the Netherlands, Scandinavia, and Central and South America starting on Friday at 11:30 p.m. EDT.
