Oktoberfest is that time of the year when German gather together in large numbers and have a gala time drinking beer. However, for us otakus, the following month is a celebration for different reasons. The anime schedule is packed with almost four dozen shows set to hit our screens this year in October.
Amongst these shows, Romantic Killer is a rather unique one. Female characters are often criticized for their one-dimensional representation in anime and mangas. However, Anzu Hoshino is not one of them. A fervent gamer, the red-haired protagonist, gets a visit from a wizard named Riri, who swears to help her find true love, much like in a dating sim!
Hoshino doesn’t want to lose out on chocolate, games, and cats, which are her favorite things to relish in life. So she tries hard to journey back to her old, less-eventful lifestyle. But the wizard creates obstacles that end up as thorns in her path. These barriers are, you guessed it right, hot boys! Hoshino must navigate through handsome men like Tsukasa Kazuki, Junta Hayami, and Hijiri Koganei despite her heart leaping out of her chest when she lays her eyes on these individuals.
Here’s the key visual for Romantic Killer.
