In Romantic Killer, a student in high school named Anzu Hoshino plays the lead role. She suddenly finds herself in the middle of every shojo heroine’s worst disaster: being chased romantically by the famous guy in school. Anzu’s life is turned around when a fairy named Riri, who has no desire for love whatsoever, decides to play cupid. Anzu must confront her courtship head-on if she wants to get back to the contented single life that she has always loved.

Even though the idea is absurd, something is appealing about a shojo girl who has no interest in love. A scheme to raise the population of humans, one young heart at a time, was developed from a magical world, according to additional story information. The fairy Riri says that Anzu is the perfect choice for this test because she detests romance.

The initial manga was originally released as a lateral scrolling story on websites like LINE Manga Indies, but after gaining a sizable following, a formal serialization was released on Shueisha’s Jump+ app in the year 2019. It received a lot of praise and even took home the 2nd Jump Vertical Scroll Manga Award. Ever since, the manga’s following in Japan has progressively grown.

There isn’t a sizable fanbase in the US because Viz Media, a publishing business, has recently secured the rights to adapt the manga into English and release the story there. But it doesn’t imply that there weren’t readers and fans who are excited to see this series.

The anime offers a lot to look forward to, even without the bizarre premise. Lovers of the anime rendition of The World Ends With You will recognize the director, Kazuya Ichikawa, and the animation studio, Domenica, behind this project. The production crew also includes Hiroko Fukuda, whose two most notable works as an anime screenplay are Noragami and Teasing Master Tagagi-san. The teaser trailer plays the opening theme, which was performed by Yurika and written by Ryou Kawasaki.
