Reach the top, and everything will be yours.

At the top of the tower exists everything in this world, and all of it can be yours.

You can become a god.

This is the story of the beginning and the end of Rachel, the girl who climbed the tower so she could see the stars, and Bam, the boy who needed nothing but her.

Takashi Sano (Sengoku Basara: End of Judgement, Transformers: Energon) is directing the anime at Telecom Animation Film (Lupin the Third: Part 5, We Rent Tsukumogami, Orange). Hirokazu Hanai (Dances with the Dragons, Chain Chronicle: The Light of Haecceitas) is the assistant director.

Kakushi Goto, an artist who draws somewhat vulgar manga. Hime, his only daughter who is currently in the fourth year of elementary school. To Kakushi, his precious daughter means the world to him. But, the overly-doting father is hiding something from Hime.

That is, his job as a manga artist.

Will his daughter come to hate him if she finds out about the "secret"?!

A slightly touching family drama filled with love and laughter begins.

The television anime of Cygames' Princess Connect! Re:Dive smartphone game will premiere in Japan on April 7, and Aniplus Asia will begin airing the anime on April 7 at 1:00 a.m. GMT +8. Aniplus Asia describes the anime:

In the beautiful land of Astraea where a gentle breeze blows, a young man named Yuuki awakens with no memory of his past.

There he encounters a guide who has sworn to care for him—Kokkoro, a lovely swordswoman who's always feeling peckish—Pecorine, and a cat-eared sorceress with a prickly attitude—Karyl.

Led by fate, these four come together to form the "Gourmet Guild." And so their adventure begins...

Cute, but sharp-tongued!!

Amidst new Reiwa Era, the peculiar but cute new heroine "Tatami-chan" is busy taking on the spirits, demons, and even humans that reside in the metropolitan city of Tokyo...!

The horror gag comedy that spells "Rensuke Oshikiri" begins now!

Oshikiri launched a crowdfunding campaign for the project on October 25, and it ran until December 25. The campaign is considered funded, despite raising 2,667,000 yen (about US$24,360) toward its 5 million yen (about US$46,000) goal.
