Anime Like Peach Boy Riverside

Peach boy Riverside is a Fantasy, shounen TV series animated by the studio Asahi Production, surprisingly I have never seen an anime series by them before, maybe I’ll give it a try.

It is based on a manga written and illustrated by Coolkyousinnjya who is also the author of Miss Kobayashi’s dragon maid, and omg I am a huge fan.


The story is about a princess who was dethroned and roamed the outskirts of the city looking for a lone traveler who saved her kingdom from a vicious monster known as “Oni” with his mysterious peach eye.

Little does she know, there is a power hidden within her, perhaps another peach eye?

The story unravels as her adventures begin with a demihuman named Frau who is quite skilled at fighting monsters.

My thoughts 

I’d say this show started out very amazing. It is definitely going to be a hit, I can only hope that they don’t use cheap anime cliches to keep this show going.

The mystery behind the powerful peach eye intrigues me, I am quite curious to know about it.

Probably one of the most laid-back shows I have ever seen after “Tanaka-Kun is always listless”. I have so much fun watching this, every episode was so enjoyable.

The shows are very much different in terms of the overall tone of the show, I suppose Peach boy Riverside can be the darker version of this.

1. One Punch Man

  • Both shows have monsters who constantly attack humankind and want to destroy them.
