SYNOPSIS: The mystical Story Teller created a world where everyone is born with a book that dictates their life story in advance. Everyone, that is, except for a handful of individuals with books full of blank pages that allow them to cross from one prewritten storyline to another and act of their own free will. That ability turns out to be a fortunate thing, as rogue plotters called Chaos Tellers are introducing new and unexpected elements into the most popular storylines, fracturing the course of fairy tales and bedtime yarns into the stuff of nightmares. Can Ex, Reina, Shane and Tao undo the repercussions of aberrations like Little Red Riding Hood suddenly gaining the ability to manipulate fire? Things are looking mighty grim indeed when our heroes must fight to un-revise the revisions in GRIMMS NOTES THE ANIMATION!

Unfortunately, the girl who lives above Yuta is deep into her own case of chuni, and in HER fantasy world, Yuta is her soul mate! How do you handle a relationship with a girl whose feelings may be based entirely on delusions? And what happens when Yuta's FORMER "one true soul mate" returns with her own skewed version of reality? Modern relationships can often get a little weird, but Yuta's life is about to get seriously wild and crazy in the ultimate collection of LOVE, CHUNIBYO AND OTHER DELUSIONS!

SYNOPSIS: Welcome to Mysteria Academy, where the secrets of magic are taught to an eager student body composed of humans, gods and demons. Of course, it takes an unusual degree of tolerance for these groups to mingle freely, but thanks to this unusually diverse and inclusive educational experience, the most unlikely friendships are bound to spring up. Which is how Anne, a human honor student who happens to be a Princess, finds herself growing increasingly close to Grea, a half-human/half-dragon who also happens to be a Princess. Sure, fairy tales would have you believe that relationships between Princesses and Dragons are bound to end up badly, but that doesn't take bonding while shopping and trips to the beach into account, let alone the fact that what they're feeling may be a little more than just friendship in MYSTERIA FRIENDS!

Is Sachiko really serious? And if she is, is Yumi ready to be thrust into the spotlight of public scrutiny that comes with becoming the "petite soeur" to one of the student council's inner circle, the Roses?

Oh, and you're ALSO now heir to the throne of the Planet Deviluke, as well as the target for an endless stream of intergalactic invaders, assassins, rival suitors, and an unbelievably long cosmic chorus line of gorgeous women who are all determined to wormhole their way into Rito's heart and/or bed! And that, needless to say, is probably going to make getting together with the nice Japanese girl who Rito's actually in love with just a wee bit more complicated in TO LOVE RU!
