Karasuma from the Ministry of Defence joins the teaching staff of Kunugigaoka in order to keep up the morale of the high-school assassins, only to find them far more upbeat than he expected. And whilst all this is going on, another E-Class student’s suspension is just ending … and he seems genuinely excited by the chance to kill a teacher.

Ken’s debt to Takao has now been cleared, by spending a day sitting with her in line for the release of the latest Magical Village game. It was supposed to be a date disguised as a thankyou meal for Ken, but Takao’s plans are about as successful as Ken’s gang. They did manage to keep Roka from seeing the two of them in line together, but Ken had to pretend to be a fan of the game. He also ended up telling her where he keeps the bag he won from her. Roka was pleased and Takao upset, but that’s not the end of the problems that bag will cause …

Tonight’s Episode: “A Scrap of a Memory” (Finale)
Stealing Hiroyri’s memories has so far failed to restore the old God of Calamity that Rabou wishes to see again, it’s only made Yato blow through his shrine savings in a failed attempt to make Hiyori remember him. So Nora reveals that Hiyori’s condition is more serious than they realized, she is losing all of her memories and eventually will be nothing more than a mindless husk. That is enough to get both Yato and Yuki motivated, and so even though their last duel nearly killed Yuki the two are on their way to the forgotten shrine of the deified assassin, Rabou.

It seems he has been very busy studying for his mechatronics course at University ever since finishing his government paid job in GGO.
Akame ga Kill

The prime minister is the power behind the throne, manipulating the infant emperor for his own gain, and the common folk of the empire suffer under his reign. A group of assassins known as Night Raid prowl the city, leaving a trail of corpses in their wake. But as Tatsumi quickly discovers, they may be the only hope the empire has.
Tonight’s Episode: “Kill the Dream“

Against Archer’s wishes, Rin chooses not to attack Shirou even though he is now formally a rival in the War, and so no one is distracted or injured when yet another Master in the Holy Grail War shows up; the silver-haired girl Shirou met just days ago with her servant the Beserker.
