April 3, 2021 - I didn’t get to post this in real time, but wanted to have a record of my thoughts on the season.

Demon

Anos, the Demon King of Tyranny, has defeated humans, spirits, and gods alike. But even demon kings get tired of all the fighting sometimes! Hoping for a more peaceful life, Anos decides to reincarnate himself. When he wakes two thousand years later, though, he finds the world has become too peaceful—his descendants have grown weak and magic is in serious decline. Intending to reclaim his rightful place, he enrolls in Demon King Academy, where he finds that his magical power is off the charts. Literally. And because they cant measure his power, the faculty and other students regard Anos as a misfit. With the support of Misha, the one student he manages to befriend, the misfit (Demon King) begins his climb up the demon ranks!<br/><br><br> (Source: Square Enix Manga & Books)

Uzaki-chan wa Asobitai! (Uzaki-chan Wants to Hang Out!)

Uzaki

Sakurai Shinichi’s one wish is for a little peace and quiet. But Uzaki Hana–his boisterous, well-endowed underclassman–has other plans. All she wants is to hang out and poke fun at him. With the help of her chipper charm and peppy persistence, this might just be the start of a beautiful relationship!<br><br/><br> (Source: Seven Seas Entertainment)

Deca-Dence

Dence

Many years have passed since humanity was driven to the brink of extinction by the sudden emergence of the unknown life forms Gadoll. Those humans that survived now dwell in a 3000 meter-high mobile fortress Deca-dence built to protect themselves from the Gadoll threat.<br><br/><br> Denizens of Deca-dence fall into two categories: Gears, warriors who fight the Gadoll daily, and Tankers, those without the skills to fight. One day, Natsume, a Tanker girl who dreams of becoming a Gear meets surly Kaburagi, an armor repairman of Deca-dence.<br> <br> This chance meeting between the seemingly two opposites, the girl with a positive attitude who never gives up on her dreams and the realist who has given up on his, will eventually shake the future course of this world. <br><br> (Source: Funimation)

Taking a coach from Bristol, she comes to Flora Girls Academy with dreams of not only joining her old friend Rosetta, but also of entering the prestigious witch school.

But theres more going on than meets the eye, and Tiara learns the alarming truth about her admittance: all four members of her group are failing, and if they dont pass this semester, all of them will be expelled as a group – including their newest member.<br/><br> <br> (Source: Anime News Network)
