Synopsis

Akagami no Shirayukihime – (Shirayuki (“Snow white”) princess of the red hair)

Shirayuki is a young pharmacist from the kingdom of Tanbarun who is cheerful, spirited and dedicated to her job. She also has brilliant red hair, which is very rare. When the first prince of Tanbarun decides to claim her unique beauty for himself, Shirayuki flees to the neighbouring kingdom of Clarines to start her life over. There may be eccentric nobility here as well, but there are also friends, and at least she can do her job.

Tonight’s Episodes:This Path, the Crystallization of Premonition

Prince Zen and friends accompany Shirayuki to a remote village where she is to acquire herbs for the palace, using the excuse that they have to inspect a nearby Fort. But when it appears that all the inhabitants are diseased, can Prince Zen do anything more than request the aid of an apprentice Royal Herbalist? And how much will this tax Shirayuki?

Preview item – Mob Psycho 100

Shigeo Kageyama’s nickname is “Mob”. A slang term for a background character, someone who doesn’t stand out. In truth he is an incredibly powerful psychic who has suppressed his emotions in order to avoid causing a catastrophe. Mob would like nothing better than to live a normal life and have feelings just like anyone else, but with his incredible psychic powers there’s no telling what might happen if he did.

Tonight’s Episodes:Self-Proclaimed Psychic: Reigen Arataka ~And Mob~

There are many conmen who would like you to think that they are powerful psychics that can fix your supernatural problems. Enter Reigen Arataka, conman extraordinaire. He has even managed to con a school kid with actual psychic powers into being his effective assistant and doing his work.

Preview item – All Out!!

A new crop of students have started at Kanagawa Prefectural High School. A new batch of potential recruits for the school’s rugby club. Rugby isn’t a sport where you have a single star player that everyone else revolves around, it’s a team game where any one player can be the hero that wins the match. Rugby is a game for everyone whether you’re tall, short, skinny or fat… Everyone that doesn’t mind getting pounded into the dirt by a head-on tackle, that is.

Tonight’s Episodes:This Year’s First-Years are Hilarious

In every school there are bullies that prey on the weak and younger. And they think they have lucked out with tall but cowardly Sumiaki Iwashimizu. Until sensitive about his height Kenji Gion passes by. Through Iwashimizu, the overly excited and energetic Gion will be introduced to a school club of his dreams – Rugby. But what of Iwashimizu?

Ore Monogatari! (My Love Story!)

Takeo Gouda is tall. No, Takeo Gouda is huge. He’s a high-schooler in a giant’s body. That’s been great for all the school sporting clubs he was part of, but less useful in his attempts to find love. But the real problem there is his handsome best friend Makoto Sunakawa, who ends up getting confessions from everyone Takeo likes. In fact it happens so often Takeo now expects it. And then one day, quite by accident, Takeo meets Rinko Yamato …

Tonight’s Episodes:I’m Dense

Suna’s older sister returns home to the shocking news that next door neighbour Takeo has a girlfriend. It looks like it is not a joke, but why does Rinko like Takeo? Takeo begins to realise that he is missing something?

Hai to Gensou no Grimgar (Grimgar of Fantasy and Ash)

Haruhiro awoke in this strange land with no memory of where he had come from or how he had got here. He and his companions were given little choice; serve in the militia defending the region from the various monsters or starve, and so they struggle to make a living as soldiers. There is nothing easy about this life and making ends meet is a challenge for six people who, it seems, had never held weapons before. Teamwork may be the only thing that can keep them alive, but for that they actually need to function as a team.

Tonight’s Episodes:Between Life and Death

The adventuring party is in the Mines of Cyrene, where Mary lost so many friends. And now Death Spots, who ended them, approaches…

One Punch Man

Saitama is a superhero, a man of such incredibly refined fighting prowess he can defeat any opponent with a single punch. And he stands ever ready to defend the people of City A no matter what terror besets them. But when you dedicate yourself to your job so completely that your hair falls out, you do not want that job to become boring …

Tonight’s Episodes:The Dominator of the Universe

The Dark Matter space pirates have attacked Earth, and a single alien warrior is challenging the combined efforts of some of the greatest S-class heroes on the surface below. In the alien ship, Saitama searches for the boss, hoping to finally find a challenge.

Gate: Jieitai Kano Chi nite, Kaku Tatakaeri (Gate: The Self Defence Forces Fight Like This in That Place)

Youji Itami is a 33-year old otaku. He loves anime and does his best to never miss a convention or product sale. Youji is also a member of Japan’s Self Defense Force. After an invasion of Tokyo from an alternate universe, Youji’s unit is sent through the gateway to this alternate dimension to push back the invaders, taking him away from his beloved anime and manga. But maybe this won’t be all bad … because this parallel universe is straight out of a fantasy manga.

Tonight’s Episode:Dangerous Sisters

Lelei’s older sister Arpeggio cannot stand her younger sister’s success. Only a magical duel can settle the matter. With the Emperor down, Crown Prince Zorzal takes charge.

Re:Zero kara Hajimeru Isekai Seikatsu (Re: Life in a Different World from Zero)

Being teleported to a fantasy world means you’re the chosen one, right? Natsuki Subaru certainly thought so, but it seems he’s not the fated hero, he’s just another guy in a world full of wizards, warriors and demi-humans. Still, there are decent people in this world and Subaru quickly finds people willing to lend him a hand, people he wants to help in return. But how can a mere high school student hope to challenge the monstrous and magical forces of this world? After all he only gets one shot at this, right?

Tonight’s Episodes:The Happy Roswaal Mansion Family

Subaru has finally passed the challenge of retrieving Emelia’s insignia without undergoing a Death Revival. He wakes in the mansion of Emilia’s sponsor, and finds some answers to what is so important about Emilia’s insignia. More importantly. he has the opportunity to change his status from dead broke and homeless.

Sakurako-san no Ashimoto ni wa Shitai ga Umatteiru (A Corpse is Buried Under Sakurako’s Feet)

Tatewaki Shoutarou has a life outside his high school, one that makes the drama and socialising of his peers seem far less important to him. He assists Sakurako Kujou, an unsociable and obsessive collector of bones and the niece of a prominent forensic scientist. But this eccentric isn’t just interested in bones, she is an expert in them. When she and Shotaro go out collecting, they seem to have a knack for finding human remains, and Sakurako’s keen eye and forensic knowledge can quickly tell what befell the previous owner of the latest set of bones she has become obsessed with.

Tonight’s Episodes:The Bones that Slumber in Summer

A nature walk looking for animal bones results in finding a human corpse. But Sakurako and Shoutarou will be reminded that corpses are never disconnected from life, for the living must deal with the dead. In this case, somebody close to Shoutarou requires answers.

Jojo no Kimyou na Bouken – Stardust Crusaders (Jojo’s Bizzare Adventure – Stardust Crusaders)

It’s 1989. Fifty odd years have passed since Joseph Joestar did battle with the immortal Pillar Men and now his Japanese grandson, Jotaro Kujo, finds his life turned upside down. A strange new ability awakens within his bloodline, granting him great power but threatening to kill his mother.

… An ancient enemy of the family has returned.

Tonight’s Episodes:Justice: Part 2

Enya has brought together the Joestar group and Hol Horse, for the purpose of killing them all. The mother of J.Geil wants revenge, and now that Hol Horse has fallen, can Enya pick off the suspicious Joestar group one by one?

Weekly Bulletin for Saturday 10th September, 2016

Screening

We spring into Haru, with the program for September 10th, 2016 below.

We return to JAFWA after having said goodbye to a faithful old series. “Fairy Tail” is shown no more, a more family (restaraunt) friendly anime has been chosen in its place, the third season of “Working!!!”. Once more we shall delight in the everyday goings on of eccentric restaraunt, you yourself have friends no more eccentric than these people I suspect.

Due to the series that won the survey last session, we have had to re-arrange the program somewhat. Too many of these series are more than 1-cour in length, thus we won’t be able to finsish screening them by the end of year, though we are trying to arrange them nicely. While we will have to put off the next retro series until October, we can sneak in a single preview episode this night.

Synopsis

Working!!! third series

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 Episodes: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.

Flying Witch

The cheerful and pleasant Kowata Makoto has come to Aomori to complete high school. She will be boarding with her cousin Muramoto Kei. Nothing unusual there right? Well, not quite. Because Makoto isn’t the normal girl she appears to be. Makoto is a witch, and she is going to bring some of the magic of the witching world to her new home.

Tonight’s Episodes:A Whale in the Sky

Chinatsu learns more about the world of witches when Akane shows her how to recieve the witchcraft newspaper. Something Makoto forgets to do. But the news tells of a rare and wonderful occurance that is about to pass their town. Can the catch it in time?

preview Item – Orange

In Matsumoto, Naho Takamiya, a second year high school student, receives letters sent from herself 10 years into the future. Her future self asks her to prevent her “biggest regret”, which has something to do with the new transfer student from Tokyo, a boy named Kakeru Naruse. At first skeptical, Naho begins to believe the letters as they accurately predict events.

Tonight’s Episodes:LETTER 01

26 year old Naho Takamiya and her friends converge on a lot, and intend to read letters of their 16 year old counterparts. Naho starts her story on how she regret every moment in her life and decides to tell her 16 year old counterpart on dealing her misfortunes. 16 years earlier, Naho woke up late and receives a letter, which came from her adult self. She read the first page of the letter at school and it seems accurate that she is indeed late. It also tells that a transfer student will sit next to her, and it happened. There is more to this letter from the future.

After an invasion of Tokyo from an alternate universe, Youji’s unit is sent through the gateway to this alternate dimension to push back the invaders, taking him away from his beloved anime and manga. But maybe this won’t be all bad … because this parallel universe is straight out of a fantasy manga.

Tonight’s Episodes:What Would Itami Do

Hai to Gensou no Grimgar (Grimgar of Fantasy and Ash)

Haruhiro awoke in this strange land with no memory of where he had come from or how he had got here. He and his companions were given little choice; serve in the militia defending the region from the various monsters or starve, and so they struggle to make a living as soldiers. There is nothing easy about this life and making ends meet is a challenge for six people who, it seems, had never held weapons before. Teamwork may be the only thing that can keep them alive, but for that they actually need to function as a team.

Ikoma is a lowly engineer in the walled city of Arawakin, one of a series of city-stations linked together by rail lines and serviced by massive, armour-plated steam trains. The reason for such lumbering transport? The Kabane. Victims of a plague that turns people into flesh-eating zombies and encases their hearts in iron. Outside the walled cities the Kabane roam the land. Within them the people are ready to slaughter any new arrival should they show the slightest hint of infection. Everyone from peasant to soldier lives in constant fear, but not Ikoma. He intends to fight back.

He never knows exactly what he’s supposed to prevent, but that doesn’t stop him from trying. For all his cynicism Satoru wants to help others, because there is one instance from his childhood, far enough back that he barely remembers any of it, where he failed.
