Original work by Coolkyoushinja and Johanne and serialized in Kodansha’s Shonen Magazine R and Magapoke, this story is “the fairy tail that everyone knows… with one extra ‘peach’.”
The synopsis and scene preview of the 4th episode “The Princess and the Peach” of TV anime Peach Boy Riverside (broadcast on Thursday, July 22 2021) has been released.
【Episode 4 “The Princess and the Peach”】
This is a world where people are consumed by Oni in demonic invasions. One day, Sally, the princess of the Kingdom of Aldarake, meets a traveler named Mikoto.
Sally, who has never set foot outside of the land in which she was born and raised, feels a deep longing to travel to the outside world and decides to join Mikoto on his journey.
Just then, the Kingdom of Aldarake is attacked by an army of Oni, and Sally herself becomes cornered!
Surprisingly, what saved her from peril was quite unexpected…

Once upon a time in a certain land, there lived an old man and an old woman.
The old man went to the mountains to cut grass, and the old woman went to the river to wash clothes… (skipping ahead a little)
Eventually the demons were all destroyed, but it was said that more demons still roamed other lands…
So the peach boy Momotaro set off across the sea.
It was amazing that they were all defeated, and it should have been a cause for joy.
However, the one thing that was off…
Killing them was fun.
This is just hypothetical, but…
Suppose there was more than one big peach in this story…
Suppose that the peach that floated to Japan wasn’t alone…
