Tonight’s Episode: “Sabertooth“
Word of the return of Fairy Tail’s missing members is beginning to spread. Old admirers, old acquaintances, all are starting to hear the news. The returned members themselves are busy celebrating with the defeated, and penitent, Legionnaires. Whilst Wakaba, the reluctant 4th Master of Fairy Tail, attends a sermon by the new religious leader of Zentopia. But victory aside, the reputation of the Guild is still sinking.

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: “Onde (Buddhist Prayer Dance)“
Kawafuji and Kanzaki have now headed back to Tokyo, with the young Kanzaki having grown at least a bit more open to new ideas and ways of doing things. Handa meanwhile is also trying new ideas with his calligraphy, although not with much success. But Tama and Miwa stop by with important news, it is Naru’s birthday and they are planning to hold a big party. For Handa, the problem is finding a good present. Finally, he turns to the other kids for help in catching Naru a Stag beetle.
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…
Preview Item – 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 Visitors“
Sentou Isuzu, it seems, has a rather forceful technique for asking boys out on dates. And Kanie Seiya finds himself with little choice other than to agree. Nor is he particularly pleased with their destination, the run-down Amagi Brilliant Park. He does, however, notice that Sentou is rather knowledgeable, both about the park itself and about the terminology used by theme park staff.
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: “Shiroe of the Northern Lands“
Another festival is in full swing in Akihabara, and Marielle once again is looking to shirk her duties and join in the fun. Still, it is more evidence of how much Akihabara has changed since “The Apocalypse”. From a disparate collection of people stranded in the world of their video game to a peaceful and prosperous town capable of planning and holding festivals all year round. All the members of Log Horizon are growing and improving, but Shiroe is not there to see it. There is still much behind the scenes work for the Round Table to do…
Noragami (Stray God)
Hiyori Iki is introduced to the world of spirits and deities after her first encounter with Yato, a homeless war god, results in a near death experience. Now Hiyori needs the ambitious Yato to help stop her soul from disconnecting from her body, but a god who doesn’t even have a shrine, let alone worshippers, doesn’t really inspire much confidence.
Tonight’s Episode: “A Housecat, A Stray God, and a Tail“
Exam time for one student just got worse, a spirit that feeds on negative emotion has found her classroom. She prays for god to save her, and one particular god hears the call. Despite its size Yato has no fear of this Ayakashi, and a brief aerial battle ends with the monster cut to pieces. The war god is quite pleased with his handiwork but his familiar Tomone has bad news for him, she is quitting. With his Regalia now gone, Yato must instead rely on odd jobs to raise money for a shrine. And right on cue, he gets a phonecall …

Tonight’s Episode: “Bullet of Bullets“
65 minutes until the finals of the 3rd BoB tournament begins and Kirito is nervous. His encounter with Death Gun was unsettling, and he is certain the killer is one of the other participants in the tournament. Sinon is still holding a grudge, both for Kirito deceiving her about his gender and for his dismissive attitude at the start of their duel. Which is a problem since Kirito was hoping to question her about the other contestants in the hopes of working out what name Death Gun has registered under.
Takaya Noriko wants to follow in the footsteps of her father and travel the vastness of space, and she has enlisted in a mecha training academy to fulfill that dream.

Noriko and the other trainees will be fighting for the survival of the human race.
Tonight’s Episode: “Shock! Oneesama and I are Going to be Pilots Together!?”
Takaya Noriko’s father was an admiral in the space fleet, captain of the battleship Luxion and one of the first humans to be killed in deep space. Although Noriko still can’t accept that he is truly gone. Nonetheless, the desire to follow in his footsteps and go into space was strong enough to get her to enrol in a mech pilot training school, in spite of her almost nonexistant talent with machinery. The other students are well aware of her lack of skill, and most assume she only got in on the basis of having a famous father, unlike the school’s top student Amano Kazumi.
