"Balsa, spear wielder and bodyguard, is a wandering warrior who has vowed to atone for eight deaths in her past by saving an equivalent number of lives. On her journey, she saves Prince Chagum and is tasked with becoming his bodyguard. His own father, the Mikado, has ordered his assassination. The two begin a perilous journey to ensure the survival of the prince. Balsa's complicated past begins to come to light and they uncover Chagum's mysterious connection to a legendary water spirit with the power to destroy the kingdom."

Real Girl (right) will be released as a Blu Ray Collector's Edition on November 16, including an artbook, art cards and a rigid art box. MVM describes the story:

"High school student Hikari Tsutsui is unpopular with classmates for his otaku behavior. One day, he was sentenced to pool cleaning duty for being late, and is paired with the beautiful but reputed troublemaker Iroha Igarashi. When Iroha asks if he would like to be in a relationship with her, Hikari agrees. However, there is a catch: Iroha is moving in six months, owing to her father's work; and transferring to another school as a result."

"One day, Yuko Yoshida wakes up with horns and a tail and learns that she is the descendant of a dark clan that was cursed into poverty by the opposing light clan. In order to restore her clan's honour, Yuko is tasked with defeating the town's local magical girl, Momo Chiyoda."
