BEYOND THE BOUNDARY (Advance Screening) (TV-14 VD) - Nowhere may seem like just another Yokohama cafe, but as with many of its employees, this apparently innocent eatery leads a double life. Because Nowhere is also where you can find Hamatora, the mysterious detective agency run by P.I.s who are also M.H.s. That’s M.H. as in Minimum Holders, individuals gifted with extraordinary powers and abilities.  For the right price, you can hire founder Nice, who moves at the speed of sound, and partner Murasaki, whose super strength and near invulnerability are a significant asset.  Of course, with incredible talents like these up their sleeves, Nice may not decide to take a case unless it personally interests him.  But when a series of serial murders all turn out to involve other Minimum Holders, that interest is about to become extremely personal.  Something monstrous is going on, and Minimum Holders as a class may be targeted for extinction in HAMATORA – THE ANIMATION!

MY TEEN ROMANTIC COMEDY SNAFU (TV-14 D) - Opposites may attract, but putting them together can result in chemical burns, electric shocks, and explosions. Enter Hachiman Hikigaya, a pessimistic high school student with no friends, no interest in making any, and the firm belief that everyone else’s cherished high school experiences are either delusions or outright lies. Hachiman finds himself coerced by his well-meaning student advisor into joining the one member Service Club. There he encounters club founder Yukino Yukinoshita, a smart, attractive, walking superiority complex who looks down on the entire student body. These two negative personalities are quick to attract Yui Yuigahama, who’s cute, bright, cheerful, and needs the Service Club’s help to… bake cookies? Is this a recipe for romance or the precursor for a nuclear meltdown?  Will there be cookies, nookie, or a reason for everyone to play hooky?  Get ready for rom-com gone totally wrong as the barrage a trois of the Service Club is unleashed on the unsuspecting student body in MY TEEN ROMANTIC COMEDY – SNAFU! (Presented in Japanese with English subtitles)
