Screening: Thu 6 Aug – Sat 19 Sep at: Luna Leederville

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. Her perfect world is being invaded by a mysterious hacker known only as “Frontier Setter” who beams messages to the residents in an attempt to gather allies. 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?

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.

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.

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.

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:100 Against 1

Natsu’s battle with Master Jiemma of Sabertooth is brought to an abrupt and inconclusive end by his daughter Minnerva, who forces Natsu to back off by briefly taking Happy hostage. Nonetheless, Natsu’s little outburst shakes up quite a few members of Sabertooth, not least of which Sting, and motivates Minnerva herself to the place of the expelled Yukino in the tournament. Erza represents Team A in the next day’s event; Pandemonium. An endurance challenge against a citadel full of 100 monsters. And she immediately wrecks the competition by challenging all 100 monsters at once.

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 Midday Vampire

Isuzu, Rudy, Serara, Tohya, and Minori are now off on their very own quest; to collect the ingredients for their magic bag. They’ve got their gear, they’ve got their wagon, and they’ve gotten a lot of advice from the other members of Log Horizon before setting off. But now it’s all up to them, whether the quest succeeds or fails is completely in their hands

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:Assembly Time

In addition to Karasuma from the Ministry of Defence, E Class now has the international assassin Irina Jelavich taking half of their English classes. And it all seems to have been according to Koro-sensei’s plan, giving the students access to a teacher with real-world experience of foreign languages. Jelavich has started taking her lessons seriously and been accepted by the students, although she doesn’t think much of their nickname for her. Koro-sensei, meanwhile, continues to bond with his students … in-between assassination attempts.

preview – Yamada-kun to 7-nin no Majo (Yamada and the Seven Witches)

Ryuu Yamada’s, well deserved, reputation as a delinquent is no longer his biggest problem. After an accident on the stairs causes himself and the school’s top student Urara Shiraishi to swap bodies, the discovery of this strange ability makes his life a great deal more complicated. But for the gruff, friendless Yamada, spending some time literally in other people’s shoes might not be such a bad thing.

Tonight’s Episode:Turnover

Yamada is in the staff room, getting chewed out by his teacher for his poor behaviour both in and out of class. It’s not a lecture he wants to hear, he left his previous school just to avoid being known as a delinquent but it seems things are no different here. Having the teacher compare him to the model student Shiraishi is just infuriating, so when Yamada spots her a few moments later on the stairwell, he decides to do something about it …

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 Reinforcement!

Despite initially wanting nothing to do with their run-down park, Kanie Seiya, it seems, is not quite heartless enough to stand by and watch them all get tossed out on the street. Or it might just be that he wants to wipe the smirk off the face of Takaya from Amagi Development. So he’s now the new manager of Amagi Brilliant Park. Still, meeting the minimum number of attendees to fulfil their quota is going to be an enormous task. That’s why his first order of business … is to close the park.

D-Frag!

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:At This Rate, You’ll Have Zero Friends for all Eternity!” Finale

The “Cell phone Snatch” battle between the former student council and the Game Dev Club (Provisional) continues. Former vice-president Naganuma is out, which is good, but Chitose is having a hard time with former president Tama on her own. Which is why Ken is heading back to the classroom to help her out, although Chitose doesn’t much like the idea that she needs help from him, whilst Roka and Sakura face former treasurer Matsubara together. And the teachers … aren’t doing much to stop it.

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:Sleeping Knights

The duel with Zekken, whose name is actually Yuuki, goes better than expected. The young sword master chooses Asuna as the winner or her challenge and reveals that the whole reason for the duels was to find an extra person to help her six-member guild, The Sleeping Knights, be the first to defeat the boss for the current floor. A raid that requires at least seven people. They’re looking to make a lasting memory, and leave a permanent mark in ALO, before real life pulls them away.

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 Three – part 2

With General Esdeath’s return to the capital, the manipulative Prime Minister immediately sets her the task of destroying Night Raid, having her subordinates kill more of his political rivals whilst pretending to be the assassin group. With their reputation under threat, and potential political allies being dispatched, the team splits up to guard the two next most likely targets. Tatsumi and Bulat are the ‘lucky’ ones, running into Esdeath’s three loyal servants. But whilst Bulat easily dispatches the first of them, one of the others is his old commander; General Liver.

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:Dancing After School

Shirou, it seems, has a capacity for self-regenerative magic. Something he, and his servant Saber, discover after his poor condition at the end of the battle with Berserker quickly vanishes. Shirou presents Saber as a friend of Kiritsugu’s in order to let her accompany him to school and other places without raising too many questions, although Sakura isn’t thrilled by the idea of the two of them living together. Meanwhile Rin is on the trail of another servant, the Caster. But Archer wants to know why she is ignoring the inexperienced, easy target that is Shirou.

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:Dio, the Invader

The young Dio made his presence felt in the Joestar household. Whilst Jonathon’s father and the manor staff, and just about everyone else that interacted with him, fell for the ruse of the polite, genial, friendly Dio, Jonathon got to see the real person behind the mask as Dio killed his dog, spread false rumours, and attacked Jonathon’s new love Erina. And speaking of masks, when Jonathon attacked Dio for assaulting Erina, and for the first time ever beat him, a bit of Dio’s blood fell on the strange stone mask that hangs on the Joestar manor’s wall … and it reacted.

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:Pandemonium

Erza learns something of Kagura, the most powerful member of the guild Mermaid Heel, from her friend, and member of the all-female guild, Millianna. The stoic swordmaster’s blade Archenemy was created for a single purpose; to kill Jellal. A goal that Erza is not pleased with. Disgraced and expelled Sabertooth member Yukino, meanwhile, gets a small taste of the family atmosphere a guild can have from her interactions with Lucy and Natsu. And her own traumatic expulsion so riles up Natsu that he goes and does something rather foolish … he crashes his way through the hotel where Sabertooth is staying and challenges their master to a fight.

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:Setting Off

Life continues in Akihabara in spite of the trials and tribulations of its various guilds. Isuzu, for example, is doing her best to be an actual bard, performing in various venues around the city in spite of how nerve-wracking it is for her to step onto a stage in front of others. In fact, Shiroe feels things have calmed down enough that its safe to send Izusu and her friends on a quest. It’s time for them to get their own magic bags.

preview – Arslan Senki (The Heroic Legend of Arslan)

Arslan is the crown prince of the royal family of Pars. A prosperous kingdom secured by the unassailable might of their army, led by Arslan’s imposing father Andragoras. But Arslan’s world is turned upside down by the invasion of their neighbour Lusitania, and the young prince must prove his own worth, and build his own legend, by reclaiming his lands from the invaders with little more than a handful of loyal allies.

Tonight’s Episode:The Glory of Ecbatana

Pars is a rich and powerful kingdom. Their king, Andragoras, is feared far and wide for his military prowess, for the kingdom has never lost a battle whilst he has led their forces. Such might brings many rewards; strong alliances, profitable trade, and the spoils of war … such as slaves. Something the young and naïve Arslan gets a chance to see for himself now that his imposing, and distant, father has returned from another successful campaign.

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 Time

Kanie may have found the notion of magical creatures from a fantasy world running an amusement park hard to believe, but the ability to read other people’s minds, plus a slow demonstration of Sentou drawing her magical musket out of thin air convinces him. But that’s really only half the issue, just because he believes they really are magical, doesn’t mean he has to help them save the park from closing down.

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:Grown-Up Time

Koro-sensei managed to overcome Karma’s various plots, even his self-sacrifice assassination attempt, all without getting himself or Karma killed. Thus maintaining his status as a teacher, and giving Karma the one thing he was genuinely missing; a teacher that wouldn’t abandon his principles for selfish reasons. Of course, none of that stopped Karma from stealing Koro-sensei’s wallet, but now that it’s finally payday Koro-sensei has money again. So it’s down to the local convenience store to buy some snacks.

D-Frag!

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:What’s My Secret Move?

The former student council, led by the oddball Tama, after kidnapping Ken to draw out Chitose for a confrontation, have now got what they wanted. The Game Dev Club (Provisional) will face off against them in a contest, with the fate of the club hanging on the outcome. There’s still the outstanding matter of exactly what game they will be playing for this contest, but Takao is taking care of that …

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:Zekken

Whilst relaxing one evening Asuna’s friends fill her in on the ALO events she has missed due to family commitments. The story of “Zekken”, a seemingly unbeatable player offering a new sword skill as the prize for a one on one duel, piques her interest. Especially after she is told that Kirito spoke privately with Zekken during their duel, and acknowledged them as the stronger player. So she agrees to challenge the “Ultimate Blade” herself, just before logging off to return to the real world … and the emptiness of her family home.

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 Thress – part 1

Sheele is now dead, killed by the half-mad (and half machine) Seryu, who remains fantatically certain of her own righteousness. Tatsumi is torn up by the news, but death is a constant companion both for an assassin and a revolutionary. It is something they must all, Tatsumi included, accept. But Mine still swears to avenge her friend, who gave up her life to save Mine from Seryu’s imperial arm. But the group may have bigger problems, general Esdeath has now returned from the northern frontier.

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:Finding the Will to Fight

Beserker’s master is one Illyasviel von Einzbern. And whilst Rin engages Illyasviel herself, Saber is almost overwhelmed by the might of Beserker. Even Archer’s long-range assistance is of little help, and when Saber does finally manage to bring down Illyasviel’s servant it simply regenerates. Archer’s final explosive strike, whilst not permanently putting the monster down, does seem to impress Illyasviel enough that she withdraws. But whilst they may have survived the battle, it seems they did not do so unscathed as Shirou suddenly begins vomiting blood.

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:Dio, the Invader

The muddy, rain-slicked roads of England in 1868 are treacherous indeed. When a local scavenger by the name of Dario Brando comes to collect from the corpses of a coach crash he discovers that the father and his infant son have survived, and that the man thinks Dario is there to save them. A misunderstanding the greedy scavenger is happy to take advantage of. It will be another twelve years before the two families meet again; the headstrong but ill-mannered Joestar heir, Jonathan, and Dario’s son, the sadistic, scheming, manipulative Dio.
