Autumn has well and truly arrived and Aya has an announcement to make. Her parents are away for the night, so a sleepover is organised. Alice and Shino stop on the way to pick up Karen. Yoko arrives late after stopping at a convenience store to get snacks. Once they are all there, everyone pitches in to help make dinner, although not everyone has a knack for cooking.

Mondaijitachi ga Isekai Kara Kura Sou Desu Yo (Problem Children are Coming from Another World Aren’t They?)

Welcome to the world of Little Garden. A place full of magical beasts, mythical figures, and powerful inhabitants. Fame and fortune await the bold, for anything can be had if you are willing to gamble your power, or even your freedom, for it.

Tonight’s Episode:It Seems That the Problem Children Really Prove Who’s Right and Wrong?

The souls of those lost in the tragedy of Hamelin, the true Rattenfänger community, have revealed the truth of the event to Asuka and offered her Deen, a mighty golem with which to battle the demon lord Black Percher. Izayoi also knows the truth, having figured it out whilst discussing Shiroyasa’s imprisonment with the bedridden Kasukabe. But the Demon Lord has fought back, rearranging the city to prevent anyone from finding and smashing the stained glass windows with the fake legend on them, and empowering one of her servants so he can defeat Izayoi in combat.

Log Horizon

Elder Tale is an MMO with over twenty million players world wide. When a new expansion is added to the game, Shiroe and his friends find themselvers amongst the several hundred thousand players across the world that are now literally trapped inside the game.

Tonight’s Episode:An Invitation From Eastal

The Round Table’s reforms have turned Akihabara into a thriving city, the ability to create new things has motivated numerous adventurers to start recreating the ideas and comforts of Earth.

Tonight’s Episode:Hachiken Makes a Huge Mistake

Summer break has shown Hachiken the varying styles of farm management. From the small-time farming of Komoba and his family, to the high volume Giga farm of Tamako’s family. Meanwhile Mikage’s father is back from hospital and as determined as ever to prevent Hachiken from fitting in around the farm, and around his daughter. But now they have a bigger problem, cattle from other farms have gotten onto the Mikage’s land and become mixed up with their herd. Rounding them up proves to be an impossible task until a stranger on a motorbike suddenly appears …

Galilei Donna

Hozuki, Kazuki and Hazuki Ferrari have endured many lectures from their mother about how they must live up to the legacy of their illustrious ancestor Galileo Galilei. But when shadowy groups start attacking them to get to “Galileo’s Inheritance” they discover their ancestry may be more important than they ever suspected.

Tonight’s Episode:Japan

Hozuki’s amulet is now in Roberto’s possession but they still have the sketches, and the next one is apparently in Japan. Something Hozuki is delighted about. Anna knows there are only two sketches left, and she suspects, or perhaps knows, something is in store for the girls once all the sketches are found. But Hozuki has a surprise for her, she wants to go to Kyoto first. Kyoto is the hometown of the Ferrari sister’s father, and they still have a living grandfather there, one that Hozuki has never met. To their surprise Anna agrees and so the next stop is Kyoto.

Samurai Flamenco

Hazama Masayoshi; male model by day, superhero by night. Or at least, that is the plan. With no super powers, no high tech gadgets, and no real training, enthusiasm is the only thing Hazama has to help him battle the drunk office workers and truant teenagers of Tokyo. Police officer Hidenori Gotou becomes an unwilling accomplice to the exploits of ‘Samurai Flamenco’ and along the way they both learn what it truly means to be a hero of justice.

Tonight’s Episode:Attack of the Army of Evil

King Torture has made his presence known to both Samurai Flamenco and the rest of Japan. Guillotine Gorilla was a shocking introduction, but Torture’s lieutenants continue to challenge Hazama. The latest is Hanging Kite, but the combined efforts of Hazama, Gotou and the Flamenco Girls overcomes him and his minions. It has been three weeks now since Torture’s first appearance, and Mari is still angry that Torture called out Samurai Flamenco as the champion of justice and completely ignored her.

Preview Item – Sekai Seifuku Bouryaku no Zvezda (World Conquest Zvezda Plot)

Jimon Asuta left his home and his unbearable father without any real plan on what to do next, but conquering the world definitely wasn’t what he expected. The steely willed, and adorable, Hoshimiya Kate snatches him off the streets and inducts him into her secret organisation, Zvezda. And although they’ve definitely got the tools of a world-conquering organisation, they’re not really what you would expect.

Tonight’s Episode:Conquer All Humanity

It late, in fact it’s getting close to curfew, but Jimon Asuta is still out on the streets. He calls his father and both receives abuse and gives the old man a piece of his mind before hanging up and, thus, leaving home officially. Of course being homeless isn’t exactly something to boast about, so when his classmate Renge Komadori stumbles upon him, Asuta pretends nothing is wrong. But plenty is wrong; he is homeless, he is hungry, and a military curfew is about to descend. But as it turns out, he is not the only one out after dark …

Jormungand: Perfect Order

Tonight’s Episode:Warmonger

The mysterious “Jormungand”, has finally been revealed. A quantum computer linked to HCLI satellites which scrambles all communication systems. The entire world will be denied access to the skies, and armies will be stripped of their ability to coordinate their forces. Koko has hated the world for engaging in war so easily and so enthusiastically, and now she is finally going to do something about it. But the plan will bring down every plane in the sky. Over half a million people will be sacrificed to bring Koko’s plans for world peace to fruition, and that is too many for Jonah …

Kyoukai no Kanata (Beyond the Boundary)

Akihito Kanbara is the half-human son of a dreamshade. Although never completely normal his life becomes a little more exciting when he meets Mirai Kuriyama, the last surviving member of a cursed clan of dreamshade hunters, and Akihito takes it upon himself to help her integrate with the other spirit warriors of their town and boost her confidence.

Tonight’s Episode:Golden Lull

Kuriyama and Sakura have made their peace but Fujima Miroku, the observer from the Dreamshade Hunters Association and the person that gave Sakura her weapon, is still in town. Whatever plans he has are being put into motion just as a Lull, a period of reduced strength for all dreamshades, begins. Izumi is also starting something, using a subordinate in the Nase Clan to practice a technique she needs to use on a human. For Kuriyama and Sakura however the Lull begins somewhat more mundanely, with Sakura having lost interest in school.

Kill la Kill

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

Tonight’s Episode:A Once in a Lifetime Chance

To no one’s surprise Ryuko and the Four Devas are the finalists of the Honnouji Academy ‘election’. Now Satsuki reveals that if Ryuko can defeat all four Devas she will reveal how Ryuko’s father died. Each of the four Deva’s is eager to prove themselves against Ryuko’s godrobe but their battle order has already been decided, Gamagoori Ira will be first. Ryuko wants to begin immediately, but the schedule says 1:00pm and Gamgoori is a stickler for the rules.

This is Jin’s chance to put his long nights of study to use. Of course his opponent is a Demon Lord, and one that has prepared her trap well…

Preview Item – Hamatora the Animation

Minimum Holders are people able to harness innate supernatural abilities. Two such people, Nice and Murosaki, run a laid back detective agency called Hamatora, staffed by other super-powered individuals. They may not have a fancy office, or a lot of money, but when the time comes to bring in the criminals they get the job done.

Tonight’s Episode:Egg of Columbus

Hamatora detective Nice just wanted to withdraw money from his account at the Tatehama Bank. An uncooperative ATM is bad enough but inside the bank there are even more – well armed – obstacles. Eventually Nice overcomes his financial difficulties and heads back to the Nowhere Cafe, or more correctly to the one table Hamatora can afford to rent, to see if there are any new jobs. Food for his tagalong Hajime already used up the money he withdrew. If he wants more he needs work and Koneko, the agency’s energetic “receptionist”, arrives with some intriguing job offers.

But papa Mikage is now in hospital getting treatment for both his back and his blood pressure, and Hachiken is turning out to be a decent farmhand. Good enough that he’s earned some time off. Hachiken recalls Komaba telling him to check out the Tamako family property, and soon he’s on his way to the enormous Giga farm.

Galilei Donna

Hozuki, Kazuki and Hazuki Ferrari have endured many lectures from their mother about how they must live up to the legacy of their illustrious ancestor Galileo Galilei. But when shadowy groups start attacking them to get to “Galileo’s Inheritance” they discover their ancestry may be more important than they ever suspected.

The power of Hozuki’s amulet has now been seen by both the Black Ganymede pirates and the ruthless Roberto, who it turns out is the person Anna has been making secret phone calls to. He states his own belief that the amulet is Galileo’s Inheritance, and his intention to come and take it immediately.

Tonight’s Episode:Change the World

The efforts of both Samurai Flamenco and the Flamenco Girls have cleaned up the city. Even Goto and the Vigilante Counseling Unit have less to do, more people call to thank the new superheros than to complain about them. Hazama’s day job is also doing better, at least in part because he gets more sleep. But Hazama is now wondering what the next step in his crime-fighting career should be. Kaname, back from another overseas trip, has only inspirational speeches about a true hero finding the answer for himself, whilst Harazuka wants more data on his stationery weapons.

Jormungand: Perfect Order

But the move is delayed by officials higher up the chain of command. Bookman has called in favours to delay the SEAL team, even though it was him that alerted the government to Koko’s intended attack. The delay gives Koko’s team enough time to get the scientist, codenamed Rabbitfoot, and escape, but that is all. SEAL Team Night Nine is now on their trail, with orders to kill.

In one such rain-soaked battle the little bell around her neck draws up memories of her older sister, how she and Kuriyama had the innate talents to be dreamshade hunters and Sakura did not. The next day Nino, the Kuriyama family member on the school’s staff, shows up at the Literature Club’s meeting. Nino is there because she has some news that may concern Kuriyama.

Tonight’s Episode:I Will Wipe My Own Tears

Satsuki encourages the student body to turn on each other in a ruthless, unrestrained battle royale to earn a place in Honnouji’s student hierarchy. For the duration of the contest Satsuki is sealing herself within her tower at the school, completely safe from any possible assault, so Ryuuko has little to do except avoid fellow students blinded by Satsuki’s offer of power.

Ryuko quickly finds herself at odds with Satsuki’s dictatorship and must challenge the power of the student council in order to find her father’s killer. Aid comes to Ryuko both from unexpected allies within the school … and a set of skimpy talking clothes.

Tonight’s Episode:Purity

When Satsuki was just a little girl, her father showed her the stunning white uniform that would be her wedding dress, and it captivated her. Its name was Junketsu (“Purity”). Reflecting on her childish ignorance only further infuriates Satsuki that Ryuko has managed to don a godrobe before her. Ryuko, meanwhile, is trying to pin down her sneaky, exhibitionist homeroom teacher Aikuro. He made a promise to reveal what he knew about her uniform, Senketsu, and her father’s murderer.
