Valkyrie Drive: Mermaid (2015)
Naive Mamori Tokonome, de 16 anos, está acostumado a ser provocado na escola por ter um sobrenome infeliz que também pode ser lido como "virgem". No entanto, o jovem Mamori em breve terá que se acostumar a ser provocado de outras maneiras ... Seqüestrado durante a aula de ginástica, Mamori acorda apenas para encontrar-se encalhada e sob ataque na exótica ilha de Mermaid. Felizmente, o enigmático companheiro de equipe Mirei Shikishima sabe exatamente como assumir a liderança - através de um beijo apaixonado, Mirei libera as habilidades de transformação Exter de Mamori, transformando a inocente ruiva em um cutelo pronto para a batalha através do poder da excitação. A dupla precisará explorar esse poder, pois a Ilha da Sereia está repleta de amigos e inimigos em potencial: Charlotte, a sádica libertadora de um harém Exter; o guloso e esperto Meifon; o misterioso mas carismático Akira Hiiragi; e a dupla de motociclistas eróticos Lady Lady. O abraço poderoso e íntimo de Mamori e Mirei é o único caminho para os dois garantirem sua sobrevivência nesta ilha escandalosa.
