Winter Polaris‘ summary from Sekai Project:
In one story, a man is living in Tokyo as a mysterious disease rapidly spreads across the world. People with the disease seem to suddenly die and then disappear into thin air, leaving behind only their clothing. As the days and months go by, the man seems to left behind in a world empty of all humans. Until one winter day, he meets a strange girl wearing goth-loli clothing named Tsubaki who claims to be an immortal.
The other story is set on the sunny beaches of a small island. A young courier named Elena rescues a young woman drifting in the ocean after a storm. The woman, Mary, is clutching a glass bottle made with technology neither recognize. That mystery sets the two off on a sea journey to the ends of the Earth in search of the people who created the bottle.
Sanarara R‘s summary from Sekai Project:
It was something that could’ve happened to anyone… A somewhat mysterious story…
One day, I was approached by a girl I didn’t recognize.
She told me that she could grant any wish I desired but…
This unreliable girl can do that?
While I stood in disbelief, she began to explain how it worked.
After the explanation, while I didn’t believe it all, I’ll admit that she was different from others.
Sanarara R a compilation of seven interconnected stories where the characters explore how their lives would change if they were allowed a chance to have their one deepest wish granted.
How To Raise a Wolf Girl summary from Sekai Project:
Kousaka Shuuji is a student who lives. in the countryside. One day, he finds a mysterious girl in the mountains but what made her truly mysterious was that she had animal ears and a tail as well. More than ten years ago, the girl was “spirited away” in the mountains and was a shell of her former self. This mysterious girl, Iroha, didn’t know how she lived her life prior to that. Having forgotten how to converse and lacking in human common sense, she’s a handful for Shuuji but he finds himself enamored by her innocence.
However, the world is not always a friendly place and her lost time will never be restored. Alongside the present situation Iroha is put in, an uncertain future awaits Iroha. Faced with this situation, one thought immediately surfaces in Shuuji’s mind.
Why is it I wonder? This feeling of wanting to protect you…
Like the thawing of the winter cold, time that was once frozen has begun to move.
