Engage Kiss, described as an “unpredictable romantic comedy,” is set to premiere in Japan on July 2. The original anime takes place in Bayron City, a Mega-Float city in the Pacific Ocean that does not fall under the purview of any country, where a new energy resource called Orgonium is being mined. The city is also the site of frequent but publicly unknown demon-induced disasters, which are dealt with by private military companies. 

The story follows a young man called Shu Ogata, the owner of one such PMC, although his company is small and frequently cash-strapped. The other main characters are Kisara, a demon who is contracted to Shu and helps in exterminating other demons, and Ayano Yugiri, Shu’s former lover and an employee at a major PMC that Shu used to work at.
