「嵐の邂逅」 (Arashi no Kaikou)
“A Stormy Encounter”

It feels like there’s worthwhile story somewhere in Nejimaki Seirei Senki, but this introduction didn’t get off to a strong start.

Binan Koukou Chikyuu Bouei-bu LOVE! LOVE! – 01

“Love, Once More!”

Make no mistake, the Cute High Earth Defense Club is a flat-out mahou shounen parody of the mahou shoujo genre, unique in that it sells out nothing in committing to the premise.
