Love Flops

A new anime coming this Fall is Love Flops. Love Flops is an original anime from Kadokawa, announced in March of this year. The series follows Asahi Kashiwagi, a run-of-the-mill high school student, whose life changes one morning after a series of unusual encounters with various girls while on the way to school. Oddly enough, every encounter he had aligned with a fortune he’d seen on TV earlier that day, and every girl ends up going to his school. Asahi finds a love letter in his locker telling him to meet at the sakura tree behind the school — just like the fortune said.

There’s no news on a release date, yet, aside from an October debut featured in the anime’s first promo video. The promo also gives a look at the cast of girls who suddenly find their way into Asahi’s life and offers a preview of the opening theme for the upcoming rom-com.

Uzaki-chan Wants to Hang Out!

Almost two years after the first season premiered, Uzaki-chan Wants to Hang Out! is returning with its second season. The series centers on the relationship between Hana Uzaki and her upperclassmen, Shinichi Sakurai. Hana is happy to learn that she’ll be attending the same college as Shinichi, but is dismayed at the fact that he appears to be a loner. Eager to make his life more exciting, she takes every chance she can to shake up his life with it eventually creating the possibility of romance between them.

The latest promo for the anime shows that Season 2 will debut sometime this Fall. The 12-episode first season left fans wanting more, so this season will hopefully see Hana and Shinichi getting closer, with plenty of Hana’s wild antics to keep them entertained.
