The Anime Network Online has announced three new shows that will be arriving on the streaming service come November and they're all titles from Sentai Filmworks that are either recently released or just due out from the company. This does provide a nice incentive for fans to check out a few episodes as well as to bolster the overall offerings of the service.
Kimikiss: Pure Rouge
Coming to Anime Network Online 11/4
Kouichi always thought of Mao as his little sister, but when he wakes up from a dream and she walks into his house, he doesn’t even recognize her. Probably because, after living in France for several years, Mao is definitely not anyone’s little sister anymore! To further complicate things, Koichi’s mom has invited Mao to stay at their house while she attends the same high school as Kouichi and their mutual friend Kazuki. But given that Kouichi’s been trying to build a relationship with Yuumi, the revelation that he’s now sharing accommodations with a non-related girl is definitely going to cause some emotional waves. Or maybe a tsunami by the time Kazuki’s sister Nana, her best friend Narumi and all the other kids at school get overly involved.
Taisho Baseball Girls
Coming to Anime Network Online 11/18
1925 - six years since the end of the Great War, four years since women were allowed to join political associations. War looms in China, males over the age of 24 are about to receive the right to vote and a strange new type of school uniform called the “sailor suit” is being introduced . But at least the national pastime, baseball, remains bound by tradition, the exclusive realm of men and boys. Until now. When a local player states that girls should become housewives instead of going to school, teenage firebrands Koume and Akiko respond by forming their own baseball team. It’s shocking. It’s scandalous. And yet, in a nation in which almost anything seems suddenly possible, it may just be the start of something greater than any nine girls can imagine.

Through the mirror… A tale told darkly. Before you make a deal with a girl in a mirror, reflect seriously on the source of the offer. Ichika Tachibana fails to take this advice in order to retrieve a lost charm, and as a result suddenly ends up with the magical forces of a Djinn at her command. Sounds like a good deal, right? Wrong. At first things seem wondrous, with her new friend Manatsu assisting her via text messages and the occasional spell; but as her powers grow, Ichika’s situation quickly goes from magical to nightmarish, and she finds herself drawn into an ever expanding web of deceptions, lies and increasingly dangerous situations. For what she’s really done is subjected herself to seeing mankind as the Djinn see them. Unfortunately, they don’t seem to place a high value on human life.
