Synopsis

Kamisama Hajimemashita, 2nd Season

Momozono Nanami continues to serve as the Earth Deity of the Mikage Shrine, and the fox spirit Tomoe continues to serve as her familiar. Their feelings for each other are becoming harder to ignore, but Nanami’s duties as an Earth Deity won’t wait. And an old friend of Tomoe’s is starting to stir up trouble…

Tonight’s Episodes:The Deity Races Across the Netherworld

Whilst Tomoe grows despondent back at the Mikage shrine, and has to impersonate Nanami at school, the real Nanami has been assigned a task by Okuninushi, the deity hosting the Divine Assembly; re-seal the barrier that leads to the Netherworld. It’s only open because of the dark haired young man Nanami met back in Tokyo, he is in fact the infamous youkai Akurah-oh here to recover his real body, although he introduces himself to Nanami as Kirihito. And now he and Nanami have been invited to the abode of Izanami, the goddess in charge of the Netherworld.

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 Episodes:The Perfume I Dedicate to You

The Grand Magic Games continue. With the next game, Naval Battle, being about forcing your opponents out of a large sphere of water Juvia looked set to outclass even Lucy and her Celestial Spirit Aquarius. But Minnerva, the new team member for Sabertooth, is a match for both of them. She teleports Juvia out of the sphere and proceeds to toy with Lucy, but then gets so annoyed by Lucy’s words of defiance, she decides instead to beat her to death. Something the Captain of the Guard frantically tries to stop. His secret plan requires a living Celestial Spirit Mage.

Shirobako

Aoi Miyamori and her four friends made up the Animation club at their high school, and all five of them aimed to go into the Anime industry after graduation. Now Aoi, like her friends, has made her dream come true. She works for Musashino Animation, a little studio in Tokyo. The job comes with all sorts of challenges and stresses but Aoi wouldn’t be here if it wasn’t something she wanted to do.

Tonight’s Episodes:No Recap Episode for Me!

With Segawa ill from overwork, Aoi has to beg Endou Ryousuke to take over her animation direction for episode 4. Each episode of Exodus! is cutting it closer to the air date. And then to everyone’s horror, director Kinoshita Shinichi suddenly decides he wants to completely rework the main characters. An emergency meeting is held, and through a combination of Aoi’s diplomacy and president Masato’s good food, the team agrees to the director’s request. Ogasawara Rinko, the unflappable assistant animation director, now has her work cut out for her.

OVA – Ongaku Shoujou (Music Girls)

After a chance meeting one day, the quiet and down-to-earth Kumagai Eri is introduced to the energetic and eccentric Chitose Haru (… not her real name). A new transfer student to her school and an enthusiastic fan of singing. Something Eri at least pretends not to be interested in.

OAV – Garakuta no Machi (Junk town)

One summer day, a young boy encounters a little robot at a shopping arcade–a hungry little robot, it turns out, as he devours one machine after the other, growing in size with each “meal”.

Movie – Little Witch Academy: The Enchanted Parade

Akko Kagari, adoring fan of the celebrity witch Shiny Chariot and overeager student at Luna Nova Magical Academy, along with her friends and classmates the bookish Lotte Yanson and the poison obsessed Sucy Manbavaran, has so far managed to survive both the bullying of other students and the rampage of a magic-eating dragon. But after a classroom exercise goes awry, she and her friends are facing expulsion unless they can work together with another trio of problem students to make the annual witch’s parade a success.

Amagi Brilliant Park

Amagi Brilliant Park is an amusement park, a place of magical wonder and whimsy. Or at least it’s supposed to be. The park has fallen on hard times and that’s bad news for the staff. Who genuinely are magical. There’s no place for these oddballs from a fantasy world except an amusement park, so they need theirs to stay open. That’s where Kanie Seiya comes in, a pompous high school student and burned out child star is the perfect person to manage this particular mad-house.

Tonight’s Episode:Not Enough Love!

What seemed like certain disaster has been turned around. Thanks to the terrifying appearance of Jaw when he gets wet, the dread walrus pirate Ironbeard and his seal crew have been subdued and forced to work for the park for free all summer. It’s a new and reasonably popular attraction, and the numbers have picked up enough that even the smug Takaya from Amagi Development came to find out the reason. And so just as it looks like things are starting to pick up, Kanie gets ill, and Macaron gets a new toy to play with …

Preview Item – Owari no Seraph (Seraph of the End)

Hyakuya Yuichirou was one of the survivors, one of the children spared by the virus that wiped out the rest of humanity. Taken as a slave and involuntary blood donor by the vampires that emerged onto the earth that same night, Yuichirou eventually escaped and joined the Moon Demon Company, a unit of vampire hunters, with one goal; kill every vampire in the world as revenge for what they did those he cared for

Tonight’s Episode:The World of Blood Legacy

It is a cold night, and at first nothing seems out of the ordinary. Then, one person suddenly collapses on the street, and another, and another. Soon there is nothing but the dead and dying … and the undead. A procession of robed figures moves amongst the carnage. And as a group of scared children rush home to Hyakuya Orphanage, a voice can be heard over a loudspeaker. The viral outbreak, it says, is the fault of foolish humans. Humanity, it says, has come to an end … save for those children under twelve who are to be taken into protective custody, underground.

Akame ga Kill (Red-Eye 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 Giant Danger Beast

Having moved into a new secret base Night Raid gets to work on their next job; clearing out a new type of Danger Beast around the capitol. Their new female member, Chelsea, considers this kind of work unnecessary, especially since the Empire is also hunting the monsters. Indeed, General Esdeath’s investigations suggest they are experiments of the late Dr Stylish, although that doesn’t explain how they got loose. There’s a bigger problem for Night Raid, however. In the midst of his patrol, Tatsumi has gone and run into the lovesick Esdeath again.

Fate/Stay Night: Unlimited Blade Works

Shirou Emiya, a high school student and amateur magus living in Fuyuki City, finds himself a participant in the Fifth Holy Grail War. A secret tournament between mages and their servants, reincarnated heroes and legendary figures, to claim the Holy Grail; a chalice that can grant any wish.

Tonight’s Episode:The Fifth Contractor

To prevent future kidnappings or murder attempts, Saber moves her sleeping quarters to just outside Shirou’s. The now Servant-less Shinji runs to Kirei’s church for sanctuary, and there in the midst of a tirade blaming all his failures on his dead servant, he is informed there is another one available. The ongoing search for Caster’s (most likely enslaved) Master continues with Issei now ruled out despite living at Ryuudou temple. And Shirou is forced to reflect on the admittedly childish notion of becoming a champion of justice simply because he saw his adopted father as one.

And Alice has gotten over her pet dog withdrawal by getting to hug a toy dog mounted on a Roomba.

Kamisama Hajimemashita, 2nd Season

Momozono Nanami continues to serve as the Earth Deity of the Mikage Shrine, and the fox spirit Tomoe continues to serve as her familiar. Their feelings for each other are becoming harder to ignore, but Nanami’s duties as an Earth Deity won’t wait. And an old friend of Tomoe’s is starting to stir up trouble…

Tonight’s Episodes:The Deity Falls Into The Netherworld

Nanami has encountered divine prejudice both in Tokyo, from a gang of fallen deities, and in Izumo, mainly from the war god Takehaya. But in spite of it all she has made it to the Divine Assembly in the shrine of the mighty god Okuninushi, thanks in part to guidance and encouragement from a glowing spirit that looked an awful lot like Mikage, the missing former deity of Nanami’s shrine. But there was someone else Nanami ran into before she left Tokyo, someone who was also travelling to Izumo and who recognised the name of her shrine and the description of Tomoe…

Shirobako

Aoi Miyamori and her four friends made up the Animation club at their high school, and all five of them aimed to go into the Anime industry after graduation. Now Aoi, like her friends, has made her dream come true. She works for Musashino Animation, a little studio in Tokyo. The job comes with all sorts of challenges and stresses but Aoi wouldn’t be here if it wasn’t something she wanted to do.

Tonight’s Episodes:Arupin’s Here!

Their key freelance animator, Segawa, agrees to pick up the extra workload, and Aoi finds her driving skills put to the test to get everyone and everything where it needs to be on time, but in the end the job gets done. Musashino Animation is not going to collapse because of episode three … the exhausted Segawa will do that instead.

Wakako-zake

When Wakako finds the perfect pairings for her sake, she lets out a sigh that sounds like “pushu”.

Preview Item – Working!!!

The little restaurant of Wagnaria has a very eccentric staff that, against all odds, keep the place running and the customers coming back. Amidst the scheming assistant chef, the blasé boss, the katana wielding head waitress, the androphobe and the freeloader is Takanashi Souta, a high school student lured into working here by his obsession with anything small and cute … like waitress Taneshima Popura.

Tonight’s Episode:All Clear on the Front Lines

It’s another day at Wagnaria, so naturally it’s another day in which live-in waitress Yamada has broken another plate. Inami continues to struggle with her fear of men, although she can actually deliver food to male customers now … without knocking them senseless. Head chef Satou continues to vent his frustration at how oblivious Todoroki is of his feelings by messing with Popura, and fellow chef Souma just messes with everyone. And although Takanashi is constantly frustrated by Yamada’s constant dish-breaking, something small seems to have cheered him up just now.

Log Horizon 2

Life continues for Shiroe and the others trapped within the world of Elder Tale. The city of Akihabara is now prosperous and thriving thanks to the efforts and innovations of the adventurers. But prosperity does not guarantee safety, Shiroe’s skills have already been tested against the nefarious Nureha and her guild Plant Hwyaden, and now he must find a way to secure Akihabara’s future against those who would seek to claim it for themselves.

Tonight’s Episode:Birthday Song

The defense of the city is an utter debacle. The Odyssey Knights only goal is to die as often as possible, believing this will send them back to Earth, and the nobles backing Plant Hwyden are exploiting that to safely level-up their own soldiers via remote control spirits. Whilst Isuzu tries to reach people through her music and Tohya confronts the Odyssey Knights directly about their fanatical beliefs, Minori convinces the increasingly mysterious Roe-2 to help them defeat the Wyverns whilst Nyanta, unbeknownst to the others, assaults Plant Hwyden’s magic train directly.

Ansatsu Kyoushitsu (Assassination Classroom)

The students of Class 3E are the lost causes of Kunugigaoka Junior High. But they have been given one last chance to redeem themselves. Their new teacher is not human, he’s a monster that blew a hole through the moon and now threatens to do the same to Earth in twelve months’ time. If the students can manage to kill him before then, they get 10 billion yen and the gratitude of the worlds’ governments. So, it’s time to assassinate the teacher! Which is kind of a shame, because he’s a really good teacher.

Tonight’s Episode:LR Student Time

The newly named Ritsu has defied her creators’ programming and retained the upgrades that Koro-sensei gave her so she could fit in with the rest of the class, rather than turning every day into an unproductive bullet dodging fiasco. And so, with their new transfer student settled in, life goes back to normal for Class E … getting English lessons from a Russian assassin.

Amagi Brilliant Park

Amagi Brilliant Park is an amusement park, a place of magical wonder and whimsy. Or at least it’s supposed to be. The park has fallen on hard times and that’s bad news for the staff. Who genuinely are magical. There’s no place for these oddballs from a fantasy world except an amusement park, so they need theirs to stay open. That’s where Kanie Seiya comes in, a pompous high school student and burned out child star is the perfect person to manage this particular mad-house.

Tonight’s Episode:Not Enough Pool Safety!

The park has now added some more staff, it doesn’t solve the guest shortage problem but at least they can run all their attractions. Macaron and Tiramie’s heartsleeve fruit brought Isuzu’’s feelings for Kanie to the surface, much to her dismay. But luckily for her Kanie never realized exactly why she kept bashing her head against every solid surface in reach. Of course, it wouldn’t be Amagi Brilliant Park unless something was about to go wrong. And so in the underground levels beneath the park’s pool, a gate leading back to Maple Land is straining and leaking …

Akame ga Kill (Red-Eye 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 New Recruits

Stylish’s assault on Night Raid’s hidden base does not go well as his human soldier experiments prove unable to overcome the assassins, Najenda showing up with reinforcements doesn’t help either. Even after Stylish pulls out his final trump card and infuses himself with the blood of a Danger Beast the combined efforts of Night Raid, none of whom he has managed to kill, brings an end to the mad doctor. The Jaeger’s are one less and Night Raid now has two new members; the living Imperial Arm Susanoo … and a second who did not take part in the battle against Stylish.

Fate/Stay Night: Unlimited Blade Works

Tonight’s Episode:The Distance Between Them

After using a command seal to prevent Archer from trying to kill her ally again, Rin and Shirou return to the task of uncovering the mystery fourth Master at the school. When Shinji throws up a new barrier and starts draining the life from the students, Rin’s assumption that there must be a fourth, more powerful, master seems in doubt… until they find Shinji’s servant Rider dead at the hands of the elusive Caster. But Rin’s greatest shock from the affair is how calm and collected Shirou was throughout. It turns out he is used to the sight of dead bodies.

Jojo no Kimyou na Bouken (JoJo’s Bizzare Adventure)

The Joestar’s are a wealthy English family, but one with a dark fate. Ever since the days of Jonathon Joestar and his adopted brother Dio Brando, and the succession struggle that came about from Dio’s greed, the Joestar family line has found itself embroiled in supernatural horror and world-threatening ambition. And it always falls to the current Jojo, whomever it may be, to stop the madness.

Tonight’s Episode:Tomorrow’s Pluck

Having tracked Dio to Wind Knight’s Lot, Jojo and his companions finds themselves led into the vampire’s trap. On top of that, Zeppeli learns the hard way that Dio’s powers are more than a match for his mastery of Hamon, leaving Jojo to battle Dio’s two undead knights, Tarkus and Bruford, alone. With Tarkus keeping Zeppeli and Speedwagon busy, and their fight now taking place in the river, it takes some out-of-the-box thinking by Jojo to find a way to breathe underwater and power his Hamon. But power it he does, and now the tide begins to turn.

Tonight’s Episodes:Your’e So Bright

Kuzehashi-sensei has now loosened up a bit, much to the relief of her students. But despite all her efforts, it’s mostly due to Karen going to such lengths to be her friend.

Kamisama Hajimemashita, 2nd Season

Momozono Nanami continues to serve as the Earth Deity of the Mikage Shrine, and the fox spirit Tomoe continues to serve as her familiar.

Despite initially wanting nothing to do with it, Nanami has now passed Otohikogame’s test and both hatched and named her own Shikagame. The tiny little monkey is called Mamoru, protecting others is both his name and his purpose. Tomoe still doesn’t think Nanami should go to Izumo for the big gathering of deities from across Japan, even if there is a chance someone there can tell them where to find Mikage. But Nanami is going in spite of his objections, because Tomoe’s desire to find Mikage is obvious even to her.

Tonight’s Episode:Youkai Exist!

In the woods outside their town, Keita, Kuma and Kanchi are busy snagging beetles. Their friend Fumi is also there, but she is working on a research project rather than collecting bugs.

The long hours are tiring, but a segment on the radio about her studio’s latest work perks her up.

Hello!! Kiniro Mosaic (Kiniro Mosaic, Season 2)

Their feelings for each other are becoming harder to ignore, but Nanami’s duties as an Earth Deity won’t wait. And an old friend of Tomoe’s is starting to stir up trouble…

Tonight’s Episodes:The Deity Goes to Izumo

Despite initially wanting nothing to do with it, Nanami has now passed Otohikogame’s test and both hatched and named her own Shikagame. The tiny little monkey is called Mamoru, protecting others is both his name and his purpose. Tomoe still doesn’t think Nanami should go to Izumo for the big gathering of deities from across Japan, even if there is a chance someone there can tell them where to find Mikage. But Nanami is going in spite of his objections, because Tomoe’s desire to find Mikage is obvious even to her.

Preview Item – Youkai Watch

Whilst out bug-hunting with his friends one day, Keita Amano’s curiosity led him to summon a youkai named Whisper from a capsule machine in front of a sacred tree.

Tonight’s Episode:Youkai Exist!

In the woods outside their town, Keita, Kuma and Kanchi are busy snagging beetles. Their friend Fumi is also there, but she is working on a research project rather than collecting bugs.

Wendy and Chelia’s duel ends in a draw due to Wendy’s clever use of her own Wind Dragon Slayer magic. Jellal is saved from arrest by Wizards Council agents Doranbolt and Lahar by retired wizard, and Grand Magic Games commentator, Yajima. But the two plan to recapture him before the games are over. And Jellal’s misfortune does not end there; the source of the dark magic he detected in the stands during Wendy’s match has vanished, and the Wizard’s Council representatives weren’t the only ones to see his face …

With her final work for the club a success, the five promise to one day work together on a movie as professionals in the animation industry… Two and a half years later, Aoi is indeed working in the industry as a Production Assistant. The long hours are tiring, but a segment on the radio about her studio’s latest work perks her up.

The defence of the city is an utter debacle. The Odyssey Knights only goal is to die as often as possible, believing this will send them back to Earth, and the nobles backing Plant Hwyden are exploiting that to safely level-up their own soldiers via remote control spirits.

Synopsis

Hello!! Kiniro Mosaic (Kiniro Mosaic, Season 2)

It’s Alice’s second year in Japan. Her second year living with Shino, going to school with Shino and being with Shino and all her other friends in Japan. It’s time for another year of fun.

Tonight’s Episodes:Spring is Here

Alice has sent a letter home to her mother. It’s the start of her second year in Japan. Shino and Alice are now high school students, whilst Shino’s older sister Isami has moved on to University. And whilst Alice and Shino are no longer in the same class, they still go to school with Aya and Youko, and Karen, Alice’s friend from England.

Kamisama Hajimemashita, 2nd Season

Momozono Nanami continues to serve as the Earth Deity of the Mikage Shrine, and the fox spirit Tomoe continues to serve as her familiar. Their feelings for each other are becoming harder to ignore, but Nanami’s duties as an Earth Deity won’t wait. And an old friend of Tomoe’s is starting to stir up trouble…

Tonight’s Episodes:I’ve Started the “Being a Deity” Thing Again

It’s the start of another school year and Nanami continues her dual life of high school student and local deity, whilst Tomoe continues his dual roles of familiar and housemaid to Nanami. Nanami has her suspicions that Tomoe still misses Mikage, the previous deity of the Shrine. But there’s no time to dwell on that thought, because Otohikogame, the flamboyant wind deity, has just let himself into Mikage Shrine to see Nanami.

Fairy Tail

Magic and mayhem in the nation of Fiore. The members of the infamous mages’ 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:Small Fists

After Laxus wipes the floor with all five of them, Raven Tail is kicked out of the tournament for cheating. The ‘Anti-Fairy Tail’ Guild is pretty bad at their job. The next match is the freshly recovered Wendy, but Jellal and his guildmates sensed Zeref’s power before the fight began. The Wind Dragon Slayer Wendy is up against Lost Magic, the Wind God Slayer Chelia from Lamia Scale, and Jellal fears Wendy’s life may be in danger. And to make matters worse, in his rush to return to the arena the fugitive Jellal bumps into Doranbolt from the Wizard’s Council.

Log Horizon season 2

Life continues for Shiroe and the others trapped within the world of Elder Tale. The city of Akihabara is now prosperous and thriving thanks to the efforts and innovations of the adventurers. But prosperity does not guarantee safety, Shiroe’s skills have already been tested against the nefarious Nureha and her guild Plant Hwyaden, and now he must find a way to secure Akihabara’s future against those who would seek to claim it for themselves.

Tonight’s Episode:The Red Night

Rudy has now explained to Isuzu why her music is so popular with the people of the land. The natives of Elder Tale have only “the 42″; the songs of the game’s original musical score. They had no idea that other songs could exist, Isuzu has brought something completely new to their world. Tohya surprises the disguised Nureha by spotting her calm smile as being fake and Minori notices a side effect of the Odyssey Knight’s mobile temple; it blocks adventurer’s telepathy. Which could be a problem as the group is split up and a massive swarm of Wyverns is heading for the city.

Amagi Brilliant Park

Amagi Brilliant Park is an amusement park, a place of magical wonder and whimsy. Or at least it’s supposed to be. The park has fallen on hard times and that’s bad news for the staff. Who genuinely are magical. There’s no place for these oddballs from a fantasy world except an amusement park, so they need theirs to stay open. That’s where Kanie Seiya comes in, a pompous high school student and burned out child star is the perfect person to manage this particular mad-house.

Tonight’s Episodes:Not Enough People!

The investigation into Dornell’s Cave turns up an abandoned attraction, and its staff. The ‘treasure’, actually the finances of the Diggery Clan of mole-people, had already been squandered by Dornell in his ten year anime, manga and video games binge. Fortunately his collection of limited-edition merchandise sells for enough to keep the park afloat for now. But trouble is never far off for Amagi Brilliant Park; they still need more staff, Isuzu still lacks confidence in her position as Kanie’s secretary, and Macaron and Tiramie have just received a shipment of magic fruit …

preview – Ghost in the Shell: Arise – Alternative Architecture

Having shed her ties to the military and its spec-ops 501 organisation, Motoko Kusanagi now finds herself trying to establish an independent Special Forces unit without being leashed to Public Security under the command of Daisuke Aramaki. Both must work together to prove their worth to the government whilst at the same time striving for opposing goals.

Sword Art Online 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 Virtual Gaming has not died, instead it’s bigger and better than ever. For Kirito and his friends there are many places to see and people to meet in the online world.

Tonight’s Episode:Beginning of a Dream

Yuuki is a child of the virtual world in a very real sense. Having contracted AIDS from a pre-natal blood transfusion she has spent her life in intensive care and the last three years solely in the virtual world. But medical care cannot change the fact that her condition is terminal, just like all the other members of her guild. This is the reason the Sleeping Knights are disbanding … two more members have been given three months to live. But Asuna isn’t satisfied with that. Yuuki has at least one other thing she’s always wanted to do, and Asuna is going to make that happen.

Movie – Rakuen Tsuiho (Expelled from Paradise)

Angela Balzac is a skilled security operative in DEVA, a virtual reality world that houses the bulk of humanity.

The governing body of DEVA decides to send a team of agents to deal with this mystery hacker who is hiding somewhere on Earth, a world that has become little more than a wasteland. So, to protect her perfect reality, Angela must enter the real world with all its trials and tribulations. But what will she make of the earth-bound ally assigned to help her? How will she deal with the other people who continue to live on the planet? And what will she find when she finally tracks down Frontier Setter?

Synopsis

Fairy Tail

Magic and mayhem in the nation of Fiore. The members of the infamous mages’ 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:Wendy vs Cheria

Raven Tail’s real purpose in the Grand Magic Games was to learn the location of Lumen Histoire, the secret of Fairy Tail that is passed down from one master to the next. Alexi (really guildmaster Ivan in disguise) sets up an illusory battle to conceal his negotiation with Laxus. And since Laxus refuses to reveal the location of Fairy Tail’s secret, the illusion will now cover the five-on-one battle between him and the whole team from Raven Tail; the Anti-Fairy Tail Guild.

Log Horizon season 2

Life continues for Shiroe and the others trapped within the world of Elder Tale. The city of Akihabara is now prosperous and thriving thanks to the efforts and innovations of the adventurers. But prosperity does not guarantee safety, Shiroe’s skills have already been tested against the nefarious Nureha and her guild Plant Hwyaden, and now he must find a way to secure Akihabara’s future against those who would seek to claim it for themselves.

Tonight’s Episode:When the Concert Ends

The disparity between successful and unsuccessful adventurers in Akihabara is becoming more pronounced, and starting to cause tension amongst the Round Table representatives. At the same time Plant Hwyden is on the move. A branch of the guild, the ominous-looking Odyssey Nights with their portable Temple, is travelling the same region as Minori and her friends. And unbeknownst to them, or the rest of her guild, a disguised Nureha is now travelling with Minori and her friends and the summoner Roe 2.

Ansatsu Kyoushitsu (Assassination Classroom)

The students of Class 3E are the lost causes of Kunugigaoka Junior High. But they have been given one last chance to redeem themselves. Their new teacher is not human, he’s a monster that blew a hole through the moon and now threatens to do the same to Earth in twelve months’ time. If the students can manage to kill him before then, they get 10 billion yen and the gratitude of the worlds’ governments. So, it’s time to assassinate the teacher! Which is kind of a shame, because he’s a really good teacher.

Tonight’s Episodes:School Trip Time part 1” and “School Trip Time part 2

The principal’s visit to the Class E facility seems to motivate Koro-sensei. He threatens to leave the school, after flattening it, if his class do not all finish in the top 50. But the principal will not let anyone mess up his strategy of grinding Class E into the dirt to make the rest of the school feel superior and work harder. So of course, he cheats. Still, for all his scheming there was one member of Class E that placed in the top 50; Karma. So instead of leaving, Koro-sensei declares his plan to pay back the principal twofold on the end of year exams … right after the class trip.

preview – Ghost in the Shell: Arise – Alternative Architecture

Having shed her ties to the military and its spec-ops 501 organisation, Motoko Kusanagi now finds herself trying to establish an independent Special Forces unit without being leashed to Public Security under the command of Daisuke Aramaki. Both must work together to prove their worth to the government whilst at the same time striving for opposing goals.

Tonight’s Episode:Ghost Stands Alone – Part 1

Motoko’s team stands ready to descend on the Harimadara Heavy Industries corporate headquarters, as crowds gather around the building’s entrance to protest the company’s war profiteering and the sale of water. Aramaki and Section 9 begin to work the bureaucratic angle, taking command of the other department operatives on-site for security, whilst Motoko briefs her team on their objectives. They have credible evidence of a planned terrorist attack, and they are here to grab one of the operatives, someone who can lead them to the hacker known as the “Fire Starter”.

Amagi Brilliant Park

Amagi Brilliant Park is an amusement park, a place of magical wonder and whimsy. Or at least it’s supposed to be. The park has fallen on hard times and that’s bad news for the staff. Who genuinely are magical. There’s no place for these oddballs from a fantasy world except an amusement park, so they need theirs to stay open. That’s where Kanie Seiya comes in, a pompous high school student and burned out child star is the perfect person to manage this particular mad-house.

Tonight’s Episodes:Not Enough Money!

Even Kanie’s capabilities as a manager have their limits, and Sentou proves her value in a crisis, and regains a bit of her self-confidence, when one of Kanie’s money-saving decisions almost floods the park and she temporarily takes over. Still, Kanie had good reason for his penny-pinching decision; with the poor attendance and the various discounts to try and attract customers, the park is now broke. But there may still be hope, there’s always the park’s secondary site. And in there, Dornell’s Cave …

Sword Art Online 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 Virtual Gaming has not died, instead it’s bigger and better than ever. For Kirito and his friends there are many places to see and people to meet in the online world.

Tonight’s Episode:Journey’s End

With Kirito delaying their reinforcements, Asuna, Yuuki and the Sleeping Knights are able to dispatch the underhanded guild and press on to defeat the level boss. Seeing their names carved into ALO’s Boss Battle memorial means the Sleeping Knights have now achieved their goal. But there is something they are not telling Asuna, something that made going to Asuna’s home for the victory celebration not an option, something that made Asuna joining the Sleeping Knights impossible, something that made Yuuki flee in tears when Asuna noticed she had called her “big sister”.

Akame ga Kill (Red-Eye 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 Temptation

General Esdeath has herself a new squad of elite Imperial Arms users, including former member of the guard and deranged justice fanatic Seryu. But Night Raid has a bigger problem with the undefeated general, an exemplary performance by Tatsumi in a tournament at the capitol means Esdeath has now found, and put a leash on, the man that meets her exacting standards. Esdeath has fallen in love with Tatsumi.

Fate/Stay Night: Unlimited Blade Works

Shirou Emiya, a high school student and amateur magus living in Fuyuki City, finds himself a participant in the Fifth Holy Grail War. A secret tournament between mages and their servants, reincarnated heroes and legendary figures, to claim the Holy Grail; a chalice that can grant any wish.

Tonight’s Episode:Reward for the Desperate Struggle

Shirou fills Saber in on his truce with Rin and the next day they weaken the magical barrier over the school to provoke the mage who created it into acting. It turns out the barrier is the work of fellow student Shinji, who reveals himself to Shirou after school. Like Shirou he has little magical power himself, which is why his servant is going around draining people of their life force … and now kidnapping Shirou. Although Saber rushes to Ryuudou Temple, Archer comes to Shirou’s aid first. And it’s a good thing too, because Saber finds another Servant blocking her path …

Jojo no Kimyou na Bouken (JoJo’s Bizzare Adventure)

The Joestar’s are a wealthy English family, but one with a dark fate. Ever since the days of Jonathon Joestar and his adopted brother Dio Brando, and the succession struggle that came about from Dio’s greed, the Joestar family line has found itself embroiled in supernatural horror and world-threatening ambition. And it always falls to the current Jojo, whoever it may be, to stop the madness.

Tonight’s Episode:Overdrive

Caught red-handed in his murderous scheme, Dio throws caution to the wind. He stabs Jojo’s father, although he was after Jojo himself, and uses the stone mask to turn himself into a vampire. The police are no match and soon it’s just Jojo and his new friend from the London slums; Speedwagon. In a desperate gambit, Jojo sets his entire mansion on fire to try and incinerate his former adopted brother. And the plan seemed to work. If only the poisoner dragged down from London to testify against Dio hadn’t gone pawing through the burnt rubble looking for the mask.

Synopsis

Fairy Tail

Magic and mayhem in the nation of Fiore. The members of the infamous mages’ 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:Laxus vs Alexei

Erza gives the crowd one hell of a show and ploughs through all 100 of the monsters in the Pandemonium challenge. Fairy Tail has now moved from the team getting the most boos and jeers to the team getting the most cheers. With all of the monsters destroyed the other contestants compare magical power to determine their ranking in the challenge, and Cana gets a sneaky power boost from the first Guild Master that nets Fairy Tail first and second place. But now it’s the battle part of the day’s events, and Raven Tail are going to carry out their true purpose in the games …

Log Horizon season 2

Life continues for Shiroe and the others trapped within the world of Elder Tale. The city of Akihabara is now prosperous and thriving thanks to the efforts and innovations of the adventurers. But prosperity does not guarantee safety, Shiroe’s skills have already been tested against the nefarious Nureha and her guild Plant Hwyaden, and now he must find a way to secure Akihabara’s future against those who would seek to claim it for themselves.

Tonight’s Episode:Odyssey Knights

Problems continue to simmer in Akihabara; DDD is slowly losing members with Crusty still missing, whilst Ein’s guild Honesty is being flooded with lazy, unproductive moochers that no other guild wants. Minori and her friends also run into problems on their quest for the Magic Bag ingredients, getting into a fight beyond their level whilst trying to protect some villagers. But they are saved by an unexpected arrival, a strangely familiar-looking summoner called Roe 2.

preview – Koufuku Graffitti (Gourmet Girl Graffitti)

Machiko Ryo has lived alone for quite some time, convinced her cooking skills were getting worse and the delicious recipes her grandmother taught her were not being done justice. And then she meets her cousin Morino Kirin, and the spirited and self-confident girl helps her realize that meals are the most delicious when you have loved ones to share them with.

Tonight’s Episode:First Course – Toasty and Crispy

Ryo crafts her recipes with patience and care, carefully following the instructions of her grandmother. But the results just aren’t very tasty, which is depressing. Ryo is pretty certain that if she can’t cook, her future looks bleak. But her misery is interrupted by a call from her aunt Akira. She has a cousin, Morino Kirin, who wants to come to an Art Prep School in Japan, the same one Ryo attends in fact, and it would be a great help if she could stay with Ryo for the weekend.

Ansatsu Kyoushitsu (Assassination Classroom)

The students of Class 3E are the lost causes of Kunugigaoka Junior High. But they have been given one last chance to redeem themselves. Their new teacher is not human, he’s a monster that blew a hole through the moon and now threatens to do the same to Earth in twelve months’ time. If the students can manage to kill him before then, they get 10 billion yen and the gratitude of the worlds’ governments. So, it’s time to assassinate the teacher! Which is kind of a shame, because he’s a really good teacher.

Tonight’s Episodes:Exam Time

As Koro-sensei continues to help his students improve in both school work and assassination skills, this time the chemistry wiz Okuda, his changes and the presence of all three Class-E teachers at the school-wide assembly shakes up the status quo quite a bit. So much so that the principal gets involved. In his mind Class-E exists solely to motivate the other students, they aren’t supposed to enjoy themselves and they certainly aren’t supposed to do well.

Amagi Brilliant Park

Amagi Brilliant Park is an amusement park, a place of magical wonder and whimsy. Or at least it’s supposed to be. The park has fallen on hard times and that’s bad news for the staff. Who genuinely are magical. There’s no place for these oddballs from a fantasy world except an amusement park, so they need theirs to stay open. That’s where Kanie Seiya comes in, a pompous high school student and burned out child star is the perfect person to manage this particular mad-house.

Tonight’s Episodes:Not Enough PA Productivity!

Kanie is already justifying his appointment as park manager, extending the park’s opening hours and slashing prices to attract customers, in spite of everyone else’s objections, and managing to turn Moffle’s annual punch-up with an obnoxious guest into a PR boost rather than a PR nightmare (magical memory wiping bullets also help). But dragging Princess Latifa out of the magically shielded castle for a sexy promotion video may not have been his best idea … because the princess has collapsed.

D-Frag! OAV

Kazama Kenji goal in life was simple; become a famous and feared delinquent. Instead he finds himself mixed up with his school’s struggling Game Development club and its various … eccentric … members. Yet the harder he tries to get away from them, the more he finds himself running into the other crazies in his school.

Tonight’s Episode:Water

With the former student council defeated and the club saved, life for Kazama returns to … what passes for normal in the Game Dev Club (Provisional). When he and Sakura end up being the only ones left in the club room one afternoon she plays video games against him, offering secrets about Roka and Chitose to keep him there until his little sister drags him away. But it seems Sakura enjoyed their little match enough to show up at Kenji’s house uninvited and ask him and his sister for help.

Sword Art Online 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 Virtual Gaming has not died, instead it’s bigger and better than ever. For Kirito and his friends there are many places to see and people to meet in the online world.

Tonight’s Episode:Swordsman’s Memorial

It turns out the guild that has beaten the Sleeping Knights to the last few boss fights has actually be spying on their practice runs in order to learn the bosses’ patterns and weaknesses, and is now camped out at the boss room in order to block them once again. Yuuki has no problems solving this dispute through violence, but the Sleeping Knights can’t afford to use up all their resources (or lose members) in a battle just before the Boss, and their underhanded opponents have reinforcements arriving. Fortunately, Asuna has some reinforcements of her own

Akame ga Kill (Red-Eye 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 Battle Fanatic

Bulat has lost his life in the battle with his former commander, General Liver. However, Esdeath’s three loyal servants have now all been killed, Night Raid’s name cleared, and Tatsumi has successfully bonded with Bulat’s Imperial Arm, Incursio. But although the group has lost another member, they have regained one as well. Mine has recovered from the wounds the fanatical Seryu inflicted on her and is again ready for active duty.

Fate/Stay Night: Unlimited Blade Works

Shirou Emiya, a high school student and amateur magus living in Fuyuki City, finds himself a participant in the Fifth Holy Grail War. A secret tournament between mages and their servants, reincarnated heroes and legendary figures, to claim the Holy Grail; a chalice that can grant any wish.

Tonight’s Episode:Mirage

Shirou’s disregard for the danger of travelling without his Servant finally proves too much for Rin, and she attacks him after school. But their fight is interrupted when they discover a Servant at the school draining the students of their life force to increase its power. Shirou saves Rin from a sneak attack and she returns the favour after he goes after the Servant alone. The experience convinces Rin that this Servant and her hidden master are a bigger threat, especially since Shirou isn’t even a properly trained mage, and the two agree to a temporary alliance until they are deal with.

Jojo no Kimyou na Bouken (JoJo’s Bizzare Adventure)

The Joestar’s are a wealthy English family, but one with a dark fate. Ever since the days of Jonathon Joestar and his adopted brother Dio Brando, and the succession struggle that came about from Dio’s greed, the Joestar family line has found itself embroiled in supernatural horror and world-threatening ambition. And it always falls to the current Jojo, whoever it may be, to stop the madness.

Tonight’s Episode:Time with Dio

Although it nearly cost him his life, Dio has now discovered the dark hidden power of the stone mask; it turns its wearer into a vampire. Unfortunately for Dio, he seems to have exhausted all his good luck surviving the attacks of his stone mask test subject. Jonathon did not die in his trip through the rough back-alleys of London, and even worse, he has returned with proof of Dio’s plot to murder Jonathon’s father in order to claim the estate for himself.
