Romantic Killer is an upcoming Netflix anime that’s based on Wataru Momose’s manga.
I’m sure some people find it cute, but I think it’s loaded with plenty of cruelty too. You see, a flying potato wizard kidnaps a geek girl and manipulates events to get her into a relationship.
There’s an English subtitled trailer and you can see for yourself before I share the official synopsis.
The manga is on Amazon, and I get mixed vibes from the cover picture.
The manga ran in Shonen Jump+ for a year.
Here’s how Netflix describe the show;
Anzu Hoshino is a “non-heroine type” high school girl who pays no attention to fashion or romance and spends every day playing video games. When the wizard Riri suddenly appears, Anzu is forced to participate in the Magical World’s project to stop population decline. This romantic comedy depicts what happens when Anzu goes from living a life immersed in her three favorite things — video games, chocolate, and cats — to being surrounded by handsome guys. Anzu is steadfast in her claim that she never wanted to live in a dating simulation game. She meets a handsome guy who is so popular it hurts, a clean-cut and athletic childhood friend, and a beautiful rich young guy who is naive about the outside world. By meeting Anzu, they all begin to change gradually.
We can find out how the animation team and director Kazuya Ichikawa play it on October 27th when Romantic Killer starts on Netflix.
