That’s because while Alice may be a NEET (someone who is Not Employed, being Educated or in Training,) that doesn’t mean that she does nothing all day. Quite the contrary. Besides collecting stuffed bears, Alice is an expert hacker and runs a secret detective service utilizing the talents of her other NEET acquaintances! To his surprise, and great personal peril, Narumi quickly finds himself drafted into this strange, elite team, and now his life is anything but boring as the NEETs take on a deadly new drug hitting the streets in HEAVEN’S MEMO PAD!

They’ll have to promote Momo to the position of overall commander while Miho steps down to vice commander! With Oorai’s greatest challenge coming up, it’s a terrible time to break in a new general, and that’s only the first bombshell in a new series of barrages.

Unable to remember how she died, Yuko’s spirit has been bound to the school for decades, but when a new freshman, Teiichi Niiya, turns out to actually be able to see her, she may finally be able to unravel the mystery of her gruesome death! But will that free her? Or will her sudden close association with a mortal have even stranger repercussions on both of their fates? The answers await in the DUSK MAIDEN OF AMNESIA.

Still, when 12-year-old Riko learns that her missing mother may be alive in the Abyss’ inky depths, she and her friend Reg decide to brave the ultimate darkness in the astonishing twin feature films that recap the acclaimed TV series, MADE IN ABYSS. But as harrowing and gut-wrenching as those adventures may be, the tensions will only continue to mount. Because now Riko, Reg and Nanachi must ford seas of corpses, survive fields of parasitic insects, and confront the most potentially dangerous entity of all, Bondrewd, the body shifting guardian of the gate to the sixth level, in the all-new feature length masterpiece - MADE IN ABYSS: DAWN OF THE DEEP SOUL!

SYNOPSIS: What is it about Rito Yuki that continues to draw beautiful alien girls towards him from all across the galaxy? It’s not as though he’s particularly attractive or talented, and his social skills are mediocre at best. And yet, somehow, this lackluster Japanese student has become the center of a girl-vortex that’s sucking in more out of this world beauties than a black hole during a sale in a lingerie shop! Between Develukan Princess Momo, who’s steadfastly determined to nail her Earthling paramour into a permanent relationship, even if she has to recruit family help to do it, and the transforming assassin Golden Darkness, who has her eyes set on taking Rito’s hide as a trophy, things are just as out of control as ever when the Develuke Saga continues in TO LOVE RU DARKNESS SEASON 2!

DARKNESS 2ND ALREADY???

Yami’s wearing her Darkness outfit for me for my birthday…
:sob::yellow_heart::black_heart:

Oh. I really do hope they change the artwork. Yami didn’t get barely any cover space on the first three sets. Please let her feature on the cover of 2nd. She deserves the love :pleading_face::pray:

I wish Sentai would have done inside art or something like they did with why the hell are you here teacher with the clean art on the slip and nsfw on the case cover for the To Love ru releases . A lot of great ecchi artwork from various store bonuses that came with the blu-rays pre-orders in Japan .

Also I’m hoping they change the art to this . I like the image of Loli Lala with her sisters ,but I like this one better

and Sentai did use it for the sub only blu-ray release of Darkness 2nd as disc art so they should have access to it .
