Those shiny little flecks aren't glitter: they're an alien life form. They take little tiny bites, and they're reproducing! Scarlet, peach, burgundy, emerald, forest green -- all these colors are only possible because, like any bottom-feeder, these little buggers take on the pigments of whatever they eat -- and they'll eat every part of you, no matter the color!

A young couple come across an AirBnB listing for a house that describes it as haunted, & decide to stay there on a lark. Not only is it actually haunted but it has no owner: the house, abandoned except for its own warped psyche, has rented itself out in order to find victims, whose life force it will slowly drain away to sustain itself. The couple eventually find the basement full of stacks of emaciated, lethargic, and prematurely-aged members of various amateur ghost-hunting youtube vlog groups, recognizable by their matching t-shirts.

Hajimete no Shoggoth! / My First Girlfriend is a Shoggoth!
Suzune is a little bit sheltered -- her parents have discouraged her from socializing outside of school, for fear that it would impact her studies. But, she was told that once she entered high school she'd be allowed to go out & even date. So, after school on her first day of high school she goes into the city, where she's promptly accosted by a group of older boys who want to take her to 'karaoke'. She doesn't really know what's going on, but she's saved when she hears someone shout "HENSHIN!" and they are engulfed by a blob of putrid flesh. A girl about her age with strangely damp skin takes her hand and brings her to safety. I turns out this girl is a shoggoth who, upon accidentally thawing from an antarctic sample in the apartment of an archaeologist, accidentally imprinted on the transforming hero show he was watching & was given the following prime directive: hide your true nature, protect the weak, and fight for justice. Can love bloom between this naive teenager and this justice-obsessed shape-shifting blob of alien goo? Of course it can: it says so in the title!

An aging legendary record producer makes a deal with the devil to resurrect from the dead all the legendary performers who died at age 27 in order to create a zombie supergroup -- The 27 Club -- but it all turns bad when personality conflicts make it impossible for them to work together on an album.

Vampires don't need to drink blood to live, per-se, but the blood meal provides them with a short period of telepathy during which they can see themselves as their victim sees them -- important for someone who can't use mirrors or cameras. Because vampire attacks are traumatic, this usually sends them deeper into self-loathing. Often, codependent vampire couples pop up -- drinking in idolized fantasy versions of themselves. Vampires with large social safety nets (usually mostly composed of humans, because vampires -- being born, not made -- tend to be pretty screwed up from an extended childhood where they can't see themselves & can't leave the house during daylight) can avoid drinking blood entirely because their trusted friends provide them with a sense of identity, but once those friends start dying off they start attacking out of desperation. In this world where vampires can only die by suicide, few last more than a few centuries. So, our protagonist begins a talk-therapy and group-therapy service for vampires.

Long Hunter, a sword-wielding drifter, navigates her way through the bandit-filled post-nuclear hellscape between small autonomous settlements, her only companion being her fast-talking overly-sarcastic penis -- who is also her ultimate weapon, when she can convince it to open its tripartate jaws and emit its long, barbed tongue to encapsulate and devour her enemies. The penis is only conscious when erect, and so she has become a master of meditation: capable of shifting activation from sympathetic to parasympathetic nervous system even during the heat of battle.

A retelling of Dracula where Lucy is an idol, Mina is her otaku friend who she secretly is into, Dracula is a VC who's buying up prime Tokyo real estate & has convinced himself that turning the whole world into vampires is inevitable & therefore he should accelerate the process. After turning, Lucy ends up literally preying on her fans in order to avoid eating Mina, while graduating from hidden crush to a Carmilla type relationship. Lucy's managers don't tell anybody she's dead, of course, and just try to subtly shift her fans to other groups. So, of course they are concerned when she does unscheduled performances on her own -- leaving none of the attendees alive! Lucy and Mina team up to fight Dracula. Van Hellsing is an anon -- he never actually shows up, and instead just gives them advice based on his medical background and extensive otaku knowledge of pop-culture vampire media.

Anime where all conflicts are settled with rap battles
I'd watch the fuck out of this. Three quarters of shonen fighting anime battles are just people yelling snide remarks at each other interspersed with infodump flashbacks anyway, so why not remove the punching altogether? (Battle anime about cooking competitions have become extremely popular so it's not like this is an unproven premise.)

Elvis, despite everything, is an A-list celebrity, although his impersonators may be C-list. I'm talking about people who professionally impersonate the lead actors in Asylum titles, people who were rejected in the first episode of reality TV shows, people used as examples during presidential election campaigns, the spokespeople for RC-level soda brands, or youtube personalities with 10k subscribers.
