Yomegami My Sweet Goddess | JAST

JAST had some fantastic announcements last night at Anime Expo 2023. These include a follow up to Yamizome Revenger, a new ALcot title, and more, so let’s dig in

First up we have Goblins on the March: Breed All Humans! This one is from our friends at CHAOS-R & FREAK STRIKE. There is nothing on VNDB about this one, but I feel like the title says all we need to know on this one. The Goblin Slayer clearly failed here, and this will be a wild ass ride!

Next up from one of my favorite creators, ALcot, we have Yomegami: My Sweet Goddess. 

From VNDB:

In Yomegami the world is at peace, but mankind is unaware of the miracles in this world, as well as the struggle going on in the world of Gods.

We pick up the story in spring in a provincial town called “New Masado City”, when a transfer student named Hayato transfers in at an unusual time. Hayato is the reincarnation of a devil that went on a rampage in the past. His mother, iris, is also a reincarnation of a former power. But in her case it’s a goddess rather than a devil. She told him that if he performs enough good deeds in the human world, he would be able to return to the world of Gods. And so Hayato attempts to live his life as a youth in accordance with her words.

Unfortunately, the devil’s power still hold power over him and it happens that he snatches a kiss from his new classmate Mikoto. If this misunderstanding continues, all of his previously accomplished good deeds will be nullified! He takes on the help of his best friend and class president Mari to find the right way and time to apologize. But then a mysterious and mischievous dog-eared girl appears and events take a turn for the worst.

Why did this have to happen to him!? It seems his life is too deeply connected with his previous existence…

Next up we have the Yamizome Revenger follow-up, Yamizome Liberator.

Mojika: Truth Rears Its Ugly Head | JASTFrom VNDB:

The title is a reference to “The Ugly Duckling” (みにくいアヒルの子)

Described as “Physical and Mental Violation ADV”, you take the role of Tanezaki Suteru who’s being bullied for looking ugly. As a result of this he is an introvert and as much as looking into people’s faces is a horrifying task to him. However, he has the power to read the true intentions of someone’s heart if he does manage to do so, which automatically happens upon seeing their faces within the range of 120cm. The ability to read these information manifest themselves in so called “Moji” which show him time after time how cruel and full of lies the world may be.

After a prank confession by his personal crush Miyu he decides to enact revenge onto those who look down upon him…

Next up we have a Frontwing classic, Makai Tenshi Djibril.

From VNDB:

When summer break began, Jinno Naoto and Manabe Rika confessed their thoughts that they had since their childhood and began to go out. Suddenly a boy named Asmo appeared. He said he was a devil, and he tried to take Rika away. Naoto did his best to save Rika from Asmo, but he couldn’t anything to do with devil’s power. At that very moment, a girl named Loveriel, who called herself an angel, appeared and saved them.

Loveriel injured in the battle against the devil and they took her home with them. There, Loveriel told them surprising things; angels from heaven and devils from hell have been fighting for a long time, and that devils would attack them again.

Because Loveriel had lost her powers during the fight, she asked Rika to fight for her. On the other hand, the devil had also lost his powers in the fight. Meanwhile, Otonashi Meimi, who was a classmate of Naoto, witnessed Naoto confess his love to Rika, and she became jealous. Taking advantage of her jealousy, the devil haunted her and made Meimi into an evil heroine, Misty Mei, and made her attack Rika again. Just before that, Loveriel turned Rika into “St. Djibril” and let her fight against them.

Lastly we have Sisters: Last Day of Summer from Jellyfish.

Sisters: Last Day of Summer | JAST

From VNDB:

Far away from the hustle and bustle of the city lies a small rural town in a mountainous region. A young man meets a pair of beautiful sisters there along with their mother and lives together with them. Their days together are full of happiness, but he doesn’t know there is a hidden secret.

That’s all from JAST this year at AX. Which titles are you most looking forward to?
