The Western Planet and the Eastern Planet.
Once upon a time, the two sides were bound by the “Dragon Pulse” spanning the heavens.

The return of the super technology known as “sacred treasures” could revolutionize the world order, but no one knows of them but one person—a “heretical girl.”
A girl from the Western Planet, Jeanne Kaguya d’Arc, saw heavenly visions of the birth of a “Star Messiah” who will save the world. She embarks on a journey to the Eastern Planet with Leonardo da Vinci, “the one who observes the world.” They come across the heretic of the Eastern Planet and “the greatest fool of the day,” Oda Nobunaga.

Without warning, thousands of players of the massively multiplayer online role-playing game (MMORPG) Elder Tale end up being transported inside of the world of the game during the latest expansion pack, inhabiting the bodies of their game avatars without any way back. Among them is Shiroe, a long-time player, strategist and member of a famous pick-up group known as the Debauchery Tea Party (DTP). Realizing that the hub city of Akiba would devolve into lawlessness and chaos, he partners up with his friend, Naotsugu, and the stealthy ninja, Akatsuki, to bring structure and order to the city. From there, they work together in order to not only survive, but thrive in the world that is now their reality.
Log Horizon stands apart from other ‘trapped-in-a-videogame’ anime by exploring how Shiroe, his friends and the other players learn to live in a world already inhabited by natives through the use of mature tactics such as politics, planning, and compromise. (Source: MyAnimeList)
It’s one thing to honor your ancestors and keep old traditions alive, but there IS such a thing as taking it to a ridiculous extreme. In Kawakami City, having a samurai ancestor and enormous ‘fighting spirit’ isn’t just an interesting fact, it’s a huge part of how you end up being ranked on the social totem pole. That, in turn, rolls over into the school curriculum. Fortunately, that’s something the local kids like Yamato Naoe have learned to deal with by forming into small ‘bands,’ (that’s the samurai type, NOT music). However, while the delicate sexual balance of Yamato’s group seemed fine when there were three girls and four boys, the sudden addition of two MORE girls starts to send everything spinning out of control!

Japan engineered an armed powered exoskeleton “Infinite Stratos” (IS) and it became the mainstream of weapons. Since only women can operate IS, women dominate the society over men.

Ichika’s busy school life surrounded by girls has begun. (Source: MyAnimeList)

After his lunch break, Shiro goes on an errand for his classmate Kukuri to prepare for their upcoming school festival, only to be chased by some intimidating-looking men. (Source: ANN)

The story is set in a world where humanity, driven off the land by the threat of magical armored insects, now live in aerial floating cities. Thus wizards—aerial combat mages who fight the insects with magical powers—came into being.
Kanata Age is a young man who lives on the floating wizard academy city of “Misutogan.” He was once celebrated as the “Black Master Swordsman,” the elite ace of the S128 special team; however, he is now despised as the “traitor of the special team.” One day, he is assigned as the instructor of E601, a team that has suffered ten consecutive defeats. E601 has three girls—Misora Whitale, Lecty Eisenach, and Rico Flamel—with one or two peculiar quirks. (Source: ANN)
