Tales of Zestiria the X
Sorey is a human youth who grew up among the seraphim, spiritual beings not visible to humans.

The anime takes place in Osaka in “AD20XX” and revolves around the Hand Shakers—partners who can summon “Nimrodes,” weapons born from their deep psyche by joining hands. To grant the pair’s wish, the Hand Shakers compete with and fight other Hand Shaker pairs. The top pair will then meet and challenge “God.”
Record of Grancrest War
The continent of Atlatan finds itself again devoured by the flames of war after a horrific event known as the Great Hall Tragedy. What was supposed to be a joyful occasion that would establish peace between the Fantasia Union and the Factory Alliance, the marriage of Sir Alexis Douse and Lady Marrine Kreische, was a tragedy. As the bride and groom walked down the aisle, the ceremony was suddenly interrupted by a powerful convergence of “Chaos,” dark energy from another dimension that corrupts the land and brings monsters and demons into the world. From within that energy appeared the Demon Lord of Diabolos, an evil being who instantly murdered the archdukes of both factions, shattering any hope for peace between them.

These two travel toward their destiny, from the highest towers to the depths of the underworld, through forest and desert alike. With an ever-growing cast of fellow heroes, fate will grasp these travelers by their very souls and propel the band of skilled adventurers towards a noble end.

Gol D. Roger was the “Pirate King,” the strongest and most infamous being to have sailed the Grand Line. The capture and execution of Roger by the World Government brought change worldwide. His last words before his death revealed the existence of the greatest treasure in the world, One Piece.

After a routine raid, the rookie sky pirate Coud finds a most unusual cargo in his mates’ cargo hold: Ren, an “Edel Reid,” a race prized by humans for granting special combat power to their partners through “Reacting.” He quickly discovers, however, that Ren is even more prized than he expected.

When Coud refuses, the ship is suddenly attacked by a mysterious force, and Coud’s captain charges him with Ren’s protection.

Escha & Logy no Atelier: Tasogare no Sora no Renkinjutsushi
This world has gone through many Dusks and is slowly nearing its end. Within this world, in the western reaches of the “Land of Dusk,” there was a nation that prospered thanks to its use of alchemy.

The Seven Deadly Sins
In a world similar to the European Middle Ages, Britannia’s feared yet revered Holy Knights use mighty magic to protect the region of Britannia and its kingdoms. However, a small subset of the Knights supposedly betrayed their homeland and turned their blades against their comrades in an attempt to overthrow the ruler of Liones. The Holy Knights defeated them, but rumors persisted that these legendary knights, called the “Seven Deadly Sins,” were still alive. Ten years later, the Holy Knights staged a coup d’état and thus became the new, tyrannical rulers of the Kingdom of Liones.
