Japanese Film Festival

Lets repeat this – October 29th to November 2ndJapanese Film Festival – Hoyts Carousel & Hoyts Millennium. see schedule

Some seriously good stuff is going to be shown. Not a lot of anime, but “Patema Inverted” is good.
Note: several of the live-action movies are based on anime – “rurou ni Kenshin” anybody?
Though “Kiki’s delivery Service” is based off of the book, not the anime.

Synopsis

Fairy Tail

Magic and mayhem in the nation of Fiore. The members of the infamous mage’s guild Fairy Tail spend their days sorting out problems for the residents of Magnolia and battling the odd apocalyptic demon or dark guild. Of course they don’t let little things like that get in the way of having fun.

Tonight’s Episode:The Right to Love

The Tenrou Tree has been restored, thanks to an act of repentance by Ultear, and Master Hades has been dispatched by Laxus, Natsu and the others. He is a bad loser though, promising to return and get revenge after Master Makarov spares his life. But he may not get the chance, whilst Fairy Tail are celebrating their victory and relaxing in their usual out-of-control way, Zeref has snuck on board the retreating Grimoire Heart sky-ship, and there, before the remnants of the Dark Guild, he declares an end to this age. The summoning of Acnologia.

Barakamon

Seishuu Handa is a new rising star in the world of professional, artistic, calligraphy. But when his pride and temper land him in trouble, he finds himself cooling his heels on the quaint little island of Gotou. Seishuu quickly finds the island’s residents to be both infuriating and invigorating in equal measure. Especially the diminutive Naru Kotoishi.

Tonight’s Episode:Yakamashika (Annoying)” finale

Handa has now settled in to his new home on the island, and even found inspiration for his calligraphy from the antics of the locals. Still, he doesn’t feel that anything he has produced so far is good enough. But peace and quiet, and concentration, will not be his. The Village Chief and his wife are trying to guilt their son into bringing some more food to Handa, and Naru has shown up with even more ‘guests’; Miwa and Tama the two girls Handa unknowingly kicked out of their ‘base’ when he moved in.

Sword Art Online, Season 2

It has been a year since the victims of Alfheim Online were freed from their virtual prison, and more than a year since Sword Art Online was shut down. But now it has begun once again. A mysterious figure has been making appearances in the game Gun Gale Online, and other players drop dead in their wake. Kirito finds himself once again risking his life in the online world.

Tonight’s Episode:Memories of Fresh Blood

Sinon (Asada Shino in real life) is quite the sniper in GGO, even managing to win an impromptu duel with a minigun wielding opponent, although not without injury. But it seems that in the real world, Shino is not quite as fond of guns. A fact that a few bullies from her high school decide to exploit until a fellow GGO player comes to her rescue. Meanwhile, during a quiet moment in ALO, Kirito has finally decided to let Asuna know of the request from Kikuoka to investigate Gun Gale Online and the mysterious Death Gun.

Zankyou no Terror (Resonance of Terror)

Tokyo is under attack, from a pair of terrorists referring to themselves as ‘Sphinxes’. With a series of complicated riddles uploaded to the internet as the only warning of when and where each attack will take place the police scramble to protect the city. But there may be more to these terrorists than their appearance, or their dehumanizing names, suggest.

Tonight’s Episode:Break Through

Shibazaki shows he deserves his nickname ‘Razor’, getting confessions from witnesses and solving the Sphinx’s riddle. Although not without threatening them over the nuclear device he knows they stole. Despite being pleased that the police have made that connection, Nine is still struggling with his traumatic memories of the facility he and Twelve were raised in, and the fact that no one else escaped. And Lisa, someone else with a traumatic upbringing, has now fled her home and is wandering the streets.

Genshiken Nidaime (Genshiken Second Season)

The old guard have graduated and now only Ogiue, Ohno and Kuchiki remain. As a new year begins Genshiken is once again infused with new members, who bring with them their own quirks, tastes and personal baggage with which to befuddle, bemuse and entertain the rest of the club. The Society for the Study of Modern Visual Culture (Gendai Shikaku Bunka Kenkyukai, Gen Shi Ken) is back.

Tonight’s Episode:White Gate Keeper

Hato and Madarame have bonded further, this time due to the hentai game from Kohsaka’s company, and Hato has decided to try and do a non-BL manga for the Uni Fair. The talk also gave Hato some concerns, because although he promised to at least attend the fair, Madarame is talking about changing jobs and finding something away from the university. But a more immediate problem for Ogiue and Hato is Hato-s BL fixation. Everything he draws whilst cross-dressing still ends up pornographic.

Shingeki no Kyoujin (Attack on Titan) OVA

The entirety of mankind lives encased within a series of fortified walls which protect them from the Titans, giant humanoid monsters who devour people, that roam the world beyond the outer wall. But now, after nearly a hundred years of relative safety, new Titans have appeared. The security of the walls is a thing of the past, and mankind may be facing extinction.

Tonight’s Episode:Distress

During the course of their training, Eren and his fellow recruits went through many different trials. One particular exercise was wilderness survival, learning to get by without the infrastructure of the corp, as they might have to do in any long period without conflict or Titan attacks. A key part of wilderness survival is teamwork, something both Jean and Eren have trouble with, especially when they are forced to work with each other. Much to the dismay of Marco, their team captain.

Sidonia no Kishi (Knights of Sidonia)

A thousand years after mankind fled Earth, Sidonia is a vast colony ship traversing deep space. The people within, genetically altered to contend with the harsh demands of space travel and Sidonia’s limited resources, live under a military dictatorship. Nagate Tanikaze however knows almost none of this, he has spent his life in the service tunnels of the ship, training in mecha combat simulators. When he is finally found by the rest of the Sidonia’s population, Tanikaze finds himself inducted into their military to help defend the colony ship against monstrous beings known as Gauna.

Tonight’s Episode:Returning to the Ship

Even equipped with the experimental Kabizashi cannons, the Gardes pilots were no match for the Gardes-Gauna hybrid, dubbed Benisuzume, and an entire platoon was eliminated. Now, lacking the manpower and firepower to wipe out the titanic gauna’s propulsion and weapons, the Sidonia has bet everything on blasting an opening to its core to allow the remaining platoon to kill the master gauna. Whilst the immortal council prepares to abandon ship, leaving everyone else to die, in case the plan fails.

preview – Akame ga Kill

Tatsumi was hoping to find enough money in the capital to save his poverty stricken village, what he found instead was corruption and slaughter. 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 Darkness

Monsters abound out on the open road, but they are no match for a competent swordsman such as Tatsumi. The travellers he saves are grateful for his help and readily offer him advice – don’t go to the capitol, there are worse things within its walls than dragons. Tatsumi is too full of confidence and optimism to heed their words, but it turns out becoming a high paying officer in the army isn’t as easy as turning up and waving your sword around.

No Game No Life

Siblings Sora and Shiro have spent their life in games, rejecting the complications of the real world in favour of virtual ones and gaining a phenomenal reputation for their unbeatable teamwork. But when they reply to a strange email they find themselves transported to a world where everything is decided by games. It’s time to put their skills to the ultimate test!

Tonight’s Episode:Grandmaster

Yet more cheating from Kurami, this time on a life-sized chess board where the pieces have a will of their own. But Sora has the hang of boosting the morale of his troops, so Kurami is forced to gamble on an even bigger bit of cheating, mind controlling the white chess pieces. But since the Blanks don’t actually have magical backup, the gamble pays off. At least at first. A suitably dramatic appeal breaks the mind control and flips the black queen over to the white side. And so Sora sets out on his new strategy; to win without fighting.

Kill la Kill OVA

Ryuko Matoi is a girl on a mission; to find the person responsible for her father’s death. Her search has led her to Honnouji Academy, a brutal, totalitarian school where the student council, led by Satsuki Kiryuin and empowered by their Ultima Uniforms, rule over everyone else. Ryuko quickly finds herself at odds with Satsuki’s dictatorship, but aid comes to Ryuko both from unexpected allies within the school … and a set of skimpy talking clothes.

Tonight’s Episode:The Last Goodbye

The battle is over, Ragyou is gone, the life fibres have slowly died away without their hosts, and now it’s time for the graduation ceremony at Honnouji Academy. But first, Sanageyama has a score to settle. He wants his rematch with Satsuki, something he put on hold once joined the student council. But as the battle comes to a close both Sanageyama and the various onlookers have realized something, Satsuki has lost the fire and passion that once drove her to lead the school and defy her mother.

Synopsis

Fairy Tail

Magic and mayhem in the nation of Fiore. The members of the infamous mage’s guild Fairy Tail spend their days sorting out problems for the residents of Magnolia and battling the odd apocalyptic demon or dark guild. Of course they don’t let little things like that get in the way of having fun.

Tonight’s Episode:Dawn on Tenrou Island

The search for the engine room on Grimoire Heart’s vessel is becomes increasingly pointless as more and more of the ship is blown up in the battle with Master Hades. Although Happy, Carla and Pantherlilly have managed to find something equally interesting, a giant pulsing heart. The power Natsu borrowed from Laxus is enough to give even the dark guild’s master a tough time, but not enough to finish him. Instead, out of respect, Master Hades reveals his ultimate magic, the Devil’s Eye. But fear, and giving up, aren’t things Fairy Tail does. Especially not Natsu.

Barakamon

Seishuu Handa is a new rising star in the world of professional, artistic, calligraphy. But when his pride and temper land him in trouble, he finds himself cooling his heels on the quaint little island of Gotou. Seishuu quickly finds the island’s residents to be both infuriating and invigorating in equal measure. Especially the diminutive Naru Kotoishi.

Tonight’s Episode:Cheerful Child” finale

At the Eika Prize Award reception, the sharp criticism of a senior calligrapher made Seishuu snap. Big time. One plane trip later he is disembarking at the deserted Fukue Airport, as far from the elderly man he attempted to knock out as his family connections can get him. Deserted is no exaggeration, it is only by luck that a local happens to come by the airport and offer him a ride to the village of Nanatsutake.

preview – Gekkan Shoujo Nozaki-kun (Monthly Girl’s Nozaki-kun)

High school student Sakura Chiyo has a serious crush on her tall, stoic schoolmate Nozaki Umetarou. But when she finally plucks up the courage to tell him she always wants to be with him, she finds herself employed as his assistant. Turns out Nozaki is a shoujo manga artist, and by working alongside him Sakura gets to see her high school crush in action … and see the not-so-perfect inspiration for his stories.

Tonight’s Episode:This Love … Is Being Turned Into a Shoujo Manga

It is late afternoon and everyone else has gone home for the day. The ideal time to make a confession to the one you love. And so, Sakura Chiyo has stayed behind at school to do just that. Of course, actually confessing to someone you like is not easy, but after a couple of tries Nozaki seems to get the message and invites her to his home. But there may still be some misunderstandings…

Sword Art Online, Season 2

It has been a year since the victims of Alfheim Online were freed from their virtual prison, and more than a year since Sword Art Online was shut down. But now it has begun once again. A mysterious figure has been making appearances in the game Gun Gale Online, and other players drop dead in their wake. Kirito finds himself once again risking his life in the online world.

Tonight’s Episode:The Sniper of Ice

A meeting with Kikuoka Seijiro from the Ministry of Internal Affairs and Communications has made Kirito aware of Death Gun. And despite concluding that a virtual bullet can’t kill someone, he has agreed to help investigate Gun Gale Online. And inside that particular virtual world, an ambush is being planned out. Because of their predictable patterns and armaments, monster hunting groups make easy prey for other players. And these ambushers have the top ranked sniper in GGO – Sinon.

Zankyou no Terror (Resonance of Terror)

Tokyo is under attack, from a pair of terrorists referring to themselves as ‘Sphinxes’. With a series of complicated riddles uploaded to the internet as the only warning of when and where each attack will take place the police scramble to protect the city. But there may be more to these terrorists than their appearance, or their dehumanizing names, suggest.

Tonight’s Episode:Search and Destroy

Twelve has given Lisa a clear warning about going to the police. Whilst the police, unable to stop the bomb in one of their own police stations, have turned to disgraced former detective Shibazaki for help. Twelve has doubts about the police’s ability to solve the riddles Nine is giving them, but Nine isn’t worried. He is confident the police have already linked the bombings with the plutonium theft. Indeed, it is that very fact which convinces Shibazaki to come out of his semi-retirement. The police, once again, begin their debriefing of the latest attack.

Witch Craft Works

Takamiya Honoka’s life used to be completely normal. That is until the day he was attacked by a Witch of the Tower and learned that Kagari Ayaka, the most popular girl in school, is secretly his personal bodyguard and a witch herself. Now Takamiya must contend with a growing procession of eccentric magic users out to either kidnap or kill him, all whilst trying to figure out why anyone is interested in him in the first place.

Tonight’s Episode:Takamiya and the Weekend (part 1)

The Tower witch known as Weekend has revealed herself in a most dramatic fashion. Kazane’s barrier protected the non-witches from Weekend’s bomb, but it exhausted her magical reserves. Just as Weekend intended. Now the other Workshop Witches, deprived of their magic by the collapse of Kazane’s barrier, try to hold out for reinforcements whilst Weekend proceeds with her plans for Takamiya and the White Witch. Ayaka and Takamiya meanwhile have escaped the Workshop and made their way back to the surface, where Takamiya gets his first look at the devastation.

Sidonia no Kishi (Knights of Sidonia)

A thousand years after mankind fled Earth, Sidonia is a vast colony ship traversing deep space. The people within, genetically altered to contend with the harsh demands of space travel and Sidonia’s limited resources, live under a military dictatorship.

When he is finally found by the rest of the Sidonia’s population, Tanikaze finds himself inducted into their military to help defend the colony ship against monstrous beings known as Gauna.

Tonight’s Episode:Collision

Their search for Dr Ochiai’s research astonishingly led right to it, at least for Tanikaze. Captain Kobayashi revealed to him Ochiai’s gauna-human hybrid, intended to serve as a replacement for both the Gardes and its Kabizashi lance. A new experimental long range weapon has been developed from the monster, and Tanikaze even managed to successfully test it saving the thankless anti-war colonists. But it may be too soon for celebrations. The Sidonia has now encountered a gauna that formed its placenta around a dwarf planet and intends to ram the ship.

No Game No Life

Siblings Sora and Shiro have spent their life in games, rejecting the complications of the real world in favour of virtual ones and gaining a phenomenal reputation for their unbeatable teamwork. But when they reply to a strange email they find themselves transported to a world where everything is decided by games. It’s time to put their skills to the ultimate test!

Tonight’s Episode:Challenger” and “Expert

After getting their bearings in this new world Sora and Shiro have already started to make themselves comfortable. A world run on divinely enforced game rules suits them perfectly; they already have new clothes, a purse full of money and a pleasant room at the inn. But it seems Sora’s off-hand comment to one unlucky gambler has consequences. The girl in question, now wearing nothing but rags, has come to his room looking for answers and someone to vent her frustration on. Time for the Blanks to take another sucker to the cleaners.

Gokukoku no Brynhildr (Brynhildr in the Darkness)

As a young boy, Ryouta Murakami cost a dear friend her life. A mistake he has never forgiven himself for. To this day he seeks to verify his lost friend’s belief in the existence of aliens. But when a strange girl shows up at his school, a girl who bears an uncanny resemblance to his dead friend, Ryouta’s attention is pulled away from the stars to face the dark secrets this new girl brings with her.

Tonight’s Episode:The Last Lead

Kogorou has now confirmed he cannot reproduce the anagathic pills before the girls run out of their current supply, prompting Ryouta to try even harder to find the laboratory’s location. A trip to Akihabara for computer parts for Kazumi gives Ryouta a chance to activate the mystery device Kuroha gave him away from the Observatory, which proves to be a smart move. In addition to a map and message in German to kill all the witches, activating the device brings two mystery figures to Ryouta’s location. Luckily its only after he and Kazumi have left.

Fairy Tail

Magic and mayhem in the nation of Fiore. The members of the infamous mage’s guild Fairy Tail spend their days sorting out problems for the residents of Magnolia and battling the odd apocalyptic demon or dark guild. Of course they don’t let little things like that get in the way of having fun.

Tonight’s Episode:The Deepest Realm

Happy, Carla and Pantherlilly continue looking for the engine room of Grimoire Heart’s vessel, to stop them from fleeing the island. And whilst the remnants of Grimoire Heart staged a sneak attack on the Fairy Tail base camp, the remnants of the Magic Council’s army have already fled. Master Hades, meanwhile, has managed to cripple Laxus. However before Hades takes him down altogether, Laxus passes the bulk of his magical power to Natsu. After all, it must be a member of Fairy Tail that gets revenge for the attack on Fairy Tail.

Preview – Hoozuki no Reitetsu

The Hell of Japan is divided into numerous regions and departments, a different punishment for different types of crime. And all those departments need to be managed. But beyond those simply in charge of their various departments, every good bureaucracy has a troubleshooter. Someone who can keep calm in a crisis and find a solution to whatever problems arise. And with an ever increasing number of people being sent down for punishment, hell is in need of one of those. That’s where Hoozuki comes in.

Tonight’s Episode:Making or Breaking Hell” finale

Great King Enma, the lord of hell, does not make for an imposing figure. Nor does he make for an effective administrator of hell. Indeed when the problems begin to mount, which they are doing right now, he delegates problems to Hozuki. Something Hozuki is never particularly happy about. But hell is so busy at the moment even Hozuki is not available, he is currently out doing inspections of the various places of punishment. And that is followed by the arrival of a troublemaker …

Sword Art Online, Season 2

It has been a year since the victims of Alfheim Online were freed from their virtual prison, and more than a year since Sword Art Online was shut down. But now it has begun once again. A mysterious figure has been making appearances in the game Gun Gale Online, and other players drop dead in their wake. Kirito finds himself once again risking his life in the online world.

Tonight’s Episode:World of Guns

For the virtual pubs and bars in GGO, the show of choice is the news and discussion program MMO Stream. But in one virtual pub a cloaked figure declares the guest Zexceed deserving of judgement before shooting the screen, causing Zexceed to writhe in agony before being disconnected from the talk show. And now the other patrons are taking the hooded figure much more seriously, as he addresses them in a grand sweeping gesture and gives his name – Death Gun.

Samurai Flamenco

He started as an enthusiastic amateur, grew into a trained hero with high tech gadgets, and now he leads a team of heroes backed by a giant robot. Hazama Masayoshi’s childhood dream of becoming the hero Samurai Flamenco has been fulfilled and then some. Of course, to be a hero you need villains to fight. But there seems to be no shortage of candidates lining up for that role …

Tonight’s Episode:Samurai Flamenco Naked” (Finale)

In a deliberate replay of the events surrounding King Torture, Sawada Heiji has taken one of Hazama’s friends prisoner to lure him out. This time Gotou. Unfortunately Sawada isn’t as dramatic as King Torture … he’s content to just use a gun. The meaning of Kaname’s final lesson still eludes Hazama, but his discussion with Ishihara leads him to believe Sawada, like him, has no real experience of love and that he acts as he does because of that inexperience. Gotou, on the other hand, does know about love. Although for him it has been a painful experience.

preview – Zankyou no Terror (Resonance of Terror)

Tokyo is under attack, from a pair of terrorists referring to themselves as ‘Sphinxes’. With a series of complicated riddles uploaded to the internet as the only warning of when and where each attack will take place the police scramble to protect the city. But there may be more to these terrorists than their appearance, or their dehumanizing names, suggest.

Tonight’s Episode:Call and Response

Nine and Twelve have made their explosive mark on Tokyo, bringing down the top floors of a skyscraper. They have also dragged Lisa Mishima into their world, although Twelve seems to have done that to help Nine deal with trauma from their shared past. For Lisa however, the experience is just another source of torment. On top of the bullies at school and her hysterical, paranoid mother. The police meanwhile are pooling all the resources to locate the people responsible for the attack.

Genshiken Nidaime (Genshiken Second Season)

The old guard have graduated and now only Ogiue, Ohno and Kuchiki remain. As a new year begins Genshiken is once again infused with new members, who bring with them their own quirks, tastes and personal baggage with which to befuddle, bemuse and entertain the rest of the club. The Society for the Study of Modern Visual Culture (Gendai Shikaku Bunka Kenkyukai, abbreviated as Gen Shi Ken) is back.

Tonight’s Episode:There’s a Route but no Loop

The club members have split up into groups so they can make a compilation to sell at the upcoming Uni Fair. The entire exercise revealed more of Hato’s oddities, specifically his drastically altered art-style when not crossdressing and the possibility that his crossdressing began as the result of a failed romance back in high-school. Hato meanwhile is still using Madarame’s flat to change, but as he does so he realizes that he hasn’t actually seen Madarame in some time.

Witch Craft Works

Takamiya Honoka’s life used to be completely normal. That is until the day he was attacked by a Witch of the Tower and learned that Kagari Ayaka, the most popular girl in school, is secretly his personal bodyguard and a witch herself.

Tonight’s Episode:Takamiya and the Witch of the End

A convoluted plan by Kagari to stage a rebellion in the school, which Takamiya would then stop in order to gain popularity, somehow managed to work. But the fight has finally convinced Kagari to start teaching Takamiya how to use magic to defend himself. The first lesson is summoning a familiar. Kagari starts by creating one of her fire elementals and then tries to help Takamiya to call up something of his own.

The new member Kotori is either a very dim-witted escapee or a good actor, either way the rest of the stargazing club now knows she is a mage. But there is already a new hunter at work disposing of the other escapees. One of whom calls Kazumi for aid, prompting Kuroha to run off to the very location Kana foresaw her dying. There they have now encountered the hunter, Kikako. An AA+ magician whose destructive power was just demonstrated on the escapee she was hunting.

Kill la Kill

Ryuko Matoi is a girl on a mission; to find the person responsible for her father’s death. Her search has led her to Honnouji Academy, a brutal, totalitarian school where the student council, led by Satsuki Kiryuin and empowered by their Ultima Uniforms, rule over everyone else. Ryuko quickly finds herself at odds with Satsuki’s dictatorship, but aid comes to Ryuko both from unexpected allies within the school … and a set of skimpy talking clothes.

Tonight’s Episode:Incomplete

Ryuuko is now a mind-controlled slave of Ragyou and the Life Fibres, her own blind hatred and recklessness leading her straight into her mother’s trap. Satsuki managed to escape during the confusion and re-join with the Four Devas and Nudist Beach aboard their aircraft carrier, the last gift of the Takarada Conglomerate. But Ryuuko, now wearing Junketsu, has arrived to kill them all. And she is clearly enjoying every second of it. In response Satsuki has donned Senketsu, and retrieved the two halves of her old sword from the Four Devas, in order to stand against her.

And she has shocked everyone by revealing Ryuuko is her discarded second daughter, by ripping Ryuuko’s life-fibre infused heart from her chest. The Four Devas do their best to hold back the people-harvesting COVERS, but they cannot stop all of the ominous white suits.
