I was checking these out just the other day after finally watching Little Witch Academia, and finding out that Death Parade was originally one of these kinds of projects.
Nothing's really catching my eye yet but it can't hurt to check them out when there's more info out!

Out of the 4, only the last one sounds interesting/promising. The romantic one sounds generic as heck, the robot mom gives off cheap feels vibes and the taiko drummer sounds like a decent/nothing-really-out-of-the-ordinary sol.
I do hope Kumi to Tulip turns out good (hopefully, the rest will do so as well, despite my miniscule expectations)!
