Get through the school year with VRV’s curated shows

For many kids out there, today marks the end of summer, as they pack up their backpacks and head back to school. For the last couple of months, kids across the country felt the privilege of waking up late into the afternoon and filling their days of nonstop video games and TV shows. Kids are going to be looking towards another long school year, and for some, it’s going to be hard to adjust back into that mode of homework and studying. Luckily enough, the folks over at VRV have compiled a list of some school themed TV shows that can help kids ease back into the mindset of higher education.

VRV is an online streaming service, created by the same company that brought us Crunchyroll. The show’s they’ve curated range from Anime to horror and even some drama. Check out the list below:

The Substitute – Sixth grade has a new substitute teacher, and she is not the substitute they are used to. Apparently, she can read the children’s minds, and when she is alone with the pupils in the class, she is downright malicious. The children immediately make a complaint about her, but she succeeds in convincing the parents that she is fantastic – though the class claims that she is an evil “alien.” The substitute achieves this through her irresistible charm, and soon the parents turn their suspicions towards the children and their exaggerated imagination.

Schooled – Rooster Teeth has teamed up with AT&T Hello Lab to release a series of videos about Geoff Ramsey’s new team of kid gamers and their battles with the Achievement Hunter crew.

School 2017 – An aspiring webtoon artist is wrongly accused of causing chaos at her school. She must find the real culprit before she, and her dreams, get expelled.

Mon Mon Mon MONSTERS! – A bullied boy and his tormentors discover a creature while doing school-mandated community service. Claiming her for their own, the group of kids keep the creature captive, revealing the monster within themselves as her ferocious sister scours the city in search of her missing sibling. A SHUDDER EXCLUSIVE.

Drop – After dropping out of private school, Hiroshi enrolls at a public school and falls in with a pack of unruly thugs. He loves the reckless partying, smoking and boozing – but can he hang when a rivalry with a biker gang leads to countless bloody brawls?

Battle Royale – In a world where teenagers have no respect and adults are losing control there can be only one solution: Battle Royale! Now, see what happens when you let a high school class loose on an island, arm them and then give them a simple choice… Kill your friends or have them kill you; with poison, cross-bows, machetes, and dynamite. ‘Beat’ Takeshi Kitano (Violent Cop, Zatoichi) is a teacher pushed to the edge by his unruly charges. Kidnapped and gassed, his class wake up with exploding metal rings around their necks. If they rebel, they could lose their heads. Now they have three days and only one is permitted to survive this grisly battle to the death.

God of Study – An unsuccessful, hard-nosed lawyer vows to raise the grades of five misfits in high school in this comedic and uplifting coming-of-age drama.

My Hero Academia – Izuku has dreamt of being a hero all his life—a lofty goal for anyone, but especially challenging for a kid with no superpowers. That’s right, in a world where eighty percent of the population has some kind of super-powered “quirk,” Izuku was unlucky enough to be born completely normal. But that’s not enough to stop him from enrolling in one of the world’s most prestigious hero academies.

Ouran Host Club – The boys in the Ouran Host Club please their clients in different ways. The new Host, Haruhi, seems to know exactly what girls want—because Haruhi’s a girl too! As the Hosts try to hide her secret, she has a blast turning their world upside down.

With VRV’s specially curated list to get you through this school year, there are two shows that I would myself recommend. First would be ‘My Hero Academia.’ I’m currently watching the show on VRV, and I enjoy every minute of it. In just half an hour, ‘My Hero Academia’ packs in a lot of action and a lot of heart. It’s a great show that sets a great example for students that you should also strive for greatness while also treating your fellow schoolmates with respect.

And lastly, I would recommend the cult-favorite, ‘Battle Royale.’ There’s going to be a lot of frustration that students will come across this year. Whether it’s from homework, teachers, or fellow students. A sense of overwhelming frustration will get the best of them, and there’s no other way to get that frustration out then watching a bunch of high-school kids fighting each other to the death. Now just remember ‘Battle Royale’ is not here to tell us that violence is the answer. But it’s to show us what happens when students don’t respect the people who are trying to educate and prepare them for the future.

So kids. Stay in school and keep yourself entertained all school year long, with VRV’s specialty list.

All shows are currently streaming on VRV!
