Akiba's Trip - The Animation
Unevaluated In the manga and anime Mecca of Akihabara, there's a rumor that 'dark shadows' have been possessing people, which makes them incredibly strong evil beings known as 'Bugged Ones'. Because they are highly sensitive to air(?), the only way to exorcise these beings is by stripping the possessed people to a naked or near-naked state. Bugged ones tend to be female, by the way.

Bakuman
Rent Moritaka Mashiro, a junior high school student, content to live out a relatively normal life as any other does, is persuaded by his classmate, Akito Takagi, to become an aspiring mangaka when the latter realizes his natural talent as an artist. However, Moritaka is reluctant to pursue his dream as his uncle, once a mangaka with his own serializations, died from overwork trying to regain his lost status. With Akito's help, Takagi gets another classmate and his school crush, Azuki Miho, who is an aspiring voice actress, to commit to voice in the anime adaptation of their future manga if such a thing ever comes about. However, Mashiro also proposes to Azuki, who surprisingly accepts only on the condition she will marry him when both of them have achieved their dreams. With a goal set before him, Mashiro begins a long and struggling path to become a famous mangaka.

Later that evening, Takumi walks down a hallway and sees the murder being commited by a pink haired girl who turns and says, "I wanted to see you". Troubled, he runs away carrying one of her daggers.
