In a magical world where humans, demihumans, and oni are heavily at odds with each other, a princess named Saltorine "Sally" Aldike is on a journey to find a person named Mikoto Kibitsu. Traversing the world, Sally comes across many truths that she had been ignorant of due to her lineage—including the knowledge that the oni possess power potent enough to wipe out humanity.

Seemingly blessed with a way to counter the oni's might, Sally has a strange power that manifests itself as a sigil resembling a peach, giving her superhuman abilities capable of defeating powerful oni with ease. Even so, Sally refuses to discriminate between humans, demihumans, and oni as much as possible, believing that peace between the three factions could be attainable one day.

On the contrary, Mikoto—who also has the same ability as Sally's but with greater mastery—has a different goal. Mikoto is out to kill and torment all oni in existence, stopping at nothing to fulfill this objective. As Sally and Mikoto continue to cross paths, the power they possess will spell the difference between amicable coexistence and utter annihilation.

Peach Boy Riverside integrates some elements from the Japanese folktale Momotarou, a famous story about a man who was born from a peach floating on a river who grows up to be the savior of his hometown after defeating demons called oni.

First time writing a review so don’t tell me to go jump off a cliff if I have no clue what I’m talking about.
Peach Boy Riverside is honestly wasted potential. One of the shows I was really interested in, due to my love for myths and lore’s, and sad to say but I was really let down by it. An already set up premise ruined by a horrible method of storytelling. The shows later episodes honestly made me want to drop it, due to how mind numbingly annoying the arrangement is and how shit barely makes sense.

Story: (2/10)
Honestly there’s nothing much to say about the read more

Peach Boy Riverside speaks as much about racism as much as a 10 second video of a dancing T-Rex with "RACISM IS BAD" in huge text in the background. But while Clickhole was satirizing the surface level nature of media championing anti-racism stances without meaningfully contributing to the cause , PBR thinks it's making a grand statement on race in spite of its superficiality and comes across as shallow at best and runs outright contrary to its message at its worst.

At its core, PBR is a mediocre (and I mean mediocre) action shounen where the fight scenes are poorly paced, and as competent read more

To call the anime adaptation of Peach Boy Riverside a mess would actually be an understatement. A “mess” is usually caused by accident, trying to do something well and then tripping for some reason or the other. No, the fate of this anime was sealed before an episode even aired.

The staff decided to take a fairly logical flow of events from the manga, and then shuffle them around, just so the final episode could end on some sort of action climax. This butchers the show right out of the gate. It makes you wonder why certain characters are even in certain places at certain times read more

Before starting this review proper, you, the reader of all things, should be informed of this: watch Peach Boy Riverside in its original intended "Time Series version" order, NOT the "On Air version" order in which this absolute MF of a director "purposefully/intentionally" shuffled a decent but cool story that's written by the mangaka of Miss Kobayashi's Dragon Maid (Cool-kyou Shinja) to oblivion. I know I have been burnt totally by this madlad of a seriously cursed "talent" of a director such as Shigeru Ueda before through the horrible abomination that is Gekidol, and his directorial intention to go anachronical with Peach Boy Riverside just read more
