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.

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:Grudges are Wrapped in the Silence of the Night

The battle between Kagura and Yukino proved to be tremendously one-sided, although not in the way anyone expected. Kagura defeats Yukino’s celestial spirits, including the heretofore unknown 13th spirit Ophiuchus, without even unsheathing her sword. The battle does, however, delight Arcadios. The Captain of the Guard now has another celestial spirit wizard, aside from Lucy, he can try to kidnap. And this one is getting thrown out of her 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:Kanami, Go East

Log Horizon’s newest member, Tetra, previously worked with one of the members of Plant Hwyden; Kazuhiko. He, and others in Plant Hwyden, were part of the infamous Debauchery Tea Party with Shiroe, Nyanta and Naotsugu. But none of them were the leader of that eclectic group. That dubious honour belonged to a player called Kanami. And it turns out that the eternally optimistic, rambunctious Kanami is in Elder Tale as well. She’s currently on the China server …

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.

D-Frag!

Her grudge is with Ataru, but she has already picked Ken as the club member to go after.

Even school break is no chance to relax or sleep in, the Yacht Club is doing its best to attract new members and the Bentenmaru and its crew have a job. But then the insurance company calls to let them know their staged Cruise Ship raid has been cancelled, their style is no longer as popular as it once was with rich thrill-seekers. On top of that, there’s been a lot of instabilities and problems with travel through hyperspace just recently …

Shingeki no Kyoujin OVA (Attack on Titan OVA)

The entirety of mankind lives encased within a series of fortified walls which protect them from the Titans, giant humanoid monsters who devour people, that roam the world beyond the outer wall.

Tonight’s Episode:No Regrets, Part 2

Levi and his two subterranean companions, Farlan and Isabel, have now been accepted into the Recon Corps, although not all of the commanders agree with Erwin’s decision. The three have joined under the pretense of Erwin getting their criminal records cleared, when in truth they are there to kill Erwin and recover documents for their mystery employer, who is promising them full surface citizenship. For Levi it’s not a difficult choice as he doesn’t much like this Recon Corps officer.

Tonight’s Episode:Kill the Absolute Justice

Indeed he has information on a wondrous elixir that will make the drinker confess their love …

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:Karma Time

Koro-sensei again demonstrates his superlative teaching skills, helping Tomohito get past his obsession with imitating his favourite pro-baseballer and instead developing a pitching style better suited to his own physique. Karasuma from the Ministry of Defence joins the teaching staff of Kunugigaoka in order to keep up the morale of the high-school assassins, only to find them far more upbeat than he expected. And whilst all this is going on, another E-Class student’s suspension is just ending … and he seems genuinely excited by the chance to kill a teacher.

D-Frag!

Kazama Kenji goal in life was simple; become a famous and feared delinquent.

Tonight’s Episode:That’s Right. I’m His Little Sister

Ken’s debt to Takao has now been cleared, by spending a day sitting with her in line for the release of the latest Magical Village game. It was supposed to be a date disguised as a thankyou meal for Ken, but Takao’s plans are about as successful as Ken’s gang. They did manage to keep Roka from seeing the two of them in line together, but Ken had to pretend to be a fan of the game. He also ended up telling her where he keeps the bag he won from her. Roka was pleased and Takao upset, but that’s not the end of the problems that bag will cause …

Noragami (Stray God)

Tonight’s Episode:A Scrap of a Memory” (Finale)

Stealing Hiroyri’s memories has so far failed to restore the old God of Calamity that Rabou wishes to see again, it’s only made Yato blow through his shrine savings in a failed attempt to make Hiyori remember him. So Nora reveals that Hiyori’s condition is more serious than they realized, she is losing all of her memories and eventually will be nothing more than a mindless husk. That is enough to get both Yato and Yuki motivated, and so even though their last duel nearly killed Yuki the two are on their way to the forgotten shrine of the deified assassin, Rabou.

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 now it has begun once again.

It seems he has been very busy studying for his mechatronics course at University ever since finishing his government paid job in GGO.

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.

Tonight’s Episode:Kill the Dream

Tatsumi has survived his first battle with a wielder of an Imperial Arm Relic. But despite acquitting himself quite well, the only reason he still breathes is because Akame was there to save him. Watching her cut down Zank the Executioner whilst under the illusion it was the person she cared most about in the world begs the question what happened between Akame and this person, but for now there is a more immediate concern … Night Raid now has a spare Imperial Arm Relic for Tatsumi.

Fate/Stay Night: Unlimited Blade Works

For trusting Kirigiri in the last classroom trial and withholding damning evidence, Naegi’s reward is to be framed for the murder himself. He avoids certain death thanks to Alter Ego’s sabotage, but remains trapped in the school’s garbage pit until Kirigiri comes to rescue him. Having returned to the school, Kirigiri now forces a retrial on Monobear. But Monobear lays down a new goal; solve all the mysteries of the school and you win, fail to do so and you all die.

Weekly Bulletin for Saturday 16th May, 2015

Screening

Below is the program for May 16th, 2015.

For tonight’s preview item “Ore Monogatari”, the word “monogatari” literally means tale/story, while “ore” (pronounced aw-reh) is a very rough (usually masculine) way of me/myself/I. So literally this is rough guy, tough guy saying “My story”, however if you read between the lines (and Japanese is famous for leaving out what we English speakers would consider vital parts of the sentence), it is actually “My Love Story”.

The captain of the guard is finding his plans are not going smoothly. In addition to misunderstanding the king’s request and making Elfman battle Bacchus instead of having Erza do it, his lackeys also fail to kidnap Lucy. However the blame for the attempt still falls on Raven’s Tail since that is who his bumbling lackeys thought they were working for. Elfman, meanwhile, to everyone’s shock and surprise manages to beat Bacchus, overcoming the drunken masters bare-handed fighting style with a scaly and jagged beastman form… although not without its consequences.

Things get a bit heated as the party is forced to split up to keep the various bosses apart, and Demikas carries Shiroe away from all of them. At first it just seems to be an attempt to draw off some of the smaller, but troublesome, minions. But then Shiroe gets a look at where Demikas has brought him … the treasure vault of the Abyssal Shaft, where all the gold in Elder Tales comes from, and where it all goes. Within is one final boss … and a Person of the Land.

preview – 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.

And then one day, quite by accident, Takeo meets Rinko Yamato …

Tonight’s Episode:I Liked the Pixels

Ken has now claimed victory over Roka, beating her in a game of luck by bending the rules … and breaking some sticks.

Unfortunately he and Takao have now been brought in for a meeting with the teachers … although not for the reason they initially assumed.

Having just saved both his and Yuki’s life, Yato finally starts taking Hiyori’s request seriously and goes to Tenjin for advice. The god of learning has just one suggestion; cut Hiyori’s ties to himself and Yuki so her soul no longer has a reason to wander into the realm of the gods. And speaking of Gods, there are dark rumours of a god called Rabou who will make people ‘dissapear’ for you. He is Nora’s partner, and an old acquaintance of Yato’s. And he wants the old Yato back. And in order to get him back, Nora has made Hiyori forget all about Yato.

Tonight’s Episode:Elfman vs Bacchus

It turns out motion sickness is something that all Dragon Slayers suffer from as Natsu, Gajeel and Sting all finish bottom in the Chariot contest. Natsu’s explanation for why Fairy Tail is participating finally wins them some crowd support, but the notion of doing things for friends apparently disgusts Sting. Chariot’s winner, Bacchus, was a late entrant into the games and old rival of Erza’s. The king of Fiore requests he be pitted against Elfman and the Captain of the Guard is happy to oblige, but he seems to have more going on than just obeying his king …

After a day of having Nozaki continuously coming up with ways to “surprise” her, followed by Nozaki using his three male friends and manga assistants as inspiration for a girl’s sleepover episode of his manga, Sakura spots the Valentine’s Day present she has in the fridge.

Tonight’s Episode:Retry

Although he struggles at first, William finds the words to inspire his guildmates to return to the battle. They are a Raid guild, and beating difficult Raids is what they do. It’s why they started playing Elder Tale, it’s what brought them together as a Guild. Even when Demikas counters that this battle is unwinnable, William talks about his own cowardice when asked to join Akihabara’s Round Table, and how Shiroe and the others accomplished what he assumed was impossible. But this raid isn’t impossible, Shiroe has a plan … although the chances of victory are only about 15%.

Until their teacher explains that whilst they aren’t lethal to humans the weapons would actually kill him, if they had managed to hit him.

Tonight’s Episode:That’s Dirty!

After an unpleasant introduction to Shiou Hachi, the Game Dev Club (Provisional)’s only other male member and Roka’s unwanted admirer, Ken quickly challenges him to a fight. And just as quickly the whole thing balloons out of control into a Battle Royal for possession of Roka’s ‘Bag of Darkness’ (Shiou, it seems, is as big a masochist as Ataru). The first round ended with most of the unimportant characters knocked out of the contest, and with Ken himself knocked out by a ballistic zipper. So once Ken wakes up, his next battle can begin.

But Yuki’s purification does not end their problems. Nora is still out there … and she has a companion.

After assembling his party Kirito finds the rest of ALO’s players already hunting for Excalibur, but siding with the Frost Giants. One of the three remaining Hill Giants reveals that the Frost Giant King Thrym has been recruiting players, with the false promise of Excalibur, in order to complete his conquest of Jötunheimr and continue on up to Alfheim. Such a major world change occurring without the player base being warned would seem unlikely, but ALO (like its predecessor SAO) is meant to evolve independent of the System Administrators…

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.

Night Raid’s position as the Special Forces unit of the Revolutionary Army assuages his concerns about becoming an assassin. Next he will have to make it through the training regime of Mine, the Night Raid member that seems to despise him the most. But first, there are some government assassins to take care of.

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:A Winter’s Day, A Fateful Night

A city in flames. A small child in the midst of the fire looks at the devastation around him and then falls down and waits for the inevitable end, and a burning piece of masonry descends upon him… In a plain grey room packed with boxes, Shirou Emiya sleeps on a tarp surrounded by tools and assorted bits of equipment. He is awoken by a young woman named Sakura, who calls him in for breakfast. It’s the start of another normal school day …

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:Chariot

Finishing last and second last after the first day’s events of the Grand Magic Games is reason enough to celebrate, or perhaps just drown your sorrows, for Fairy Tail. Both losses in the one on one battles were due to outside interference; for Jellal/Mystogan it was his guild-members making sure he didn’t blow his cover before investigating the arena and the dark magic he sensed from it in previous years. For Lucy, it was Raven Tail’s cheating… which is why she and Grey, the other Fairy Tail guild member undone by their antics, aren’t at the pub.

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:Let’s Rice

A typical day of work on Nozaki’s manga gives Sakura a chance to learn a bit more about the relationship between Nozaki and his editor Ken, how they first started working together and what Ken first did that won him so much admiration from Nozaki (aside from not being his insufferable old editor Maeno).

Preview – Yoru no Yatterman (Yatterman of the Night)

The Yatterman were the heroes, the Yatterman saved the world. The Yattermen made a wondrous place for people the live; the Yatter Kingdom. So why keep Leopard and her friends out just because of their ancestor’s crimes? Why do they no longer help those who are in need? Any why, when Leopard decides to force her way in to teach them a lesson, is the kingdom nothing like the stories? Who are the real heroes now?

Tonight’s Episodes:The World is Pitch Black

A pleasant and uneventful New Year’s Day in Japan, until the first of a vast swarm of comets, strikes the peak of Mount Fuji. And in fire and wrath, everything ends… Or perhaps not. In a simple graveyard, with the lights of a city in the distance, a pregnant woman wishes that her child will get to live happily in the Yatter Kingdom. Little Leopard grows up a cheerful and rambunctious child, raised on tales of the heroic Yatterman and their victory over the villainous trio Doronbo …

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:Guild Master

After finding themselves in a seemingly unwinnable battle, three raid bosses all at once, Shiroe experiences death for the first time. He is forced to confront his inability to fully trust others, but he comes out of the experience ready to confront his flaws. However, the battle in which he died was a total party wipe-out, and the members of the Silver Sword guild are now doubting that this raid can be beaten at all. Their Guild Master, William Massachusetts, must now find the words to rebuild their confidence.

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:That Means We’re in a Love Triangle!

The Battle with the 14 Devils upgraded Ken’s status from unknown delinquent … to Chitose’s lackey. And Chitose revealing his little sister makes his lunch dragged it back down again. He’s also attending class, very un-delinquent like, but Mr Konekone is an exception. He saved Ken and his buddies from a burning building when they were kids, not even a delinquent would insult such an awesome teacher by skipping class. But now that his class is over, there’s no reason for Ken to stick around … except for a terrified Roka begging for protection from her ‘enemy’.

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:Name

Whilst Yato managed to help the bullied kid at Hiyori’s school, the environment is the last straw for Yuki. Seeing everything he lost when he died and became Yato’s Regalia sends him into a destructive rampage across the school. It is also the last straw for Yato, as the corruption Yuki’s negative thoughts have caused finally overcomes him. Hiyori brings Yuki and the now unconscious, and infectious, Yato to Kofuku for help … only to have a barrier thrown up in front of them.

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 now it has begun once again. A mysterious figure has been making appearances in the game Gun Gale Online, and other players drop dead in their wake. Kirito finds himself once again risking his life in the online world.

Tonight’s Episode:Queen of the Lake

Shinkawa and his brother are now behind bars, the Death Gun incident is finally over and Kirito can return to Alfheim online. Which is good timing since the legendary sword Excalibur has now been spotted by other players in the game. Kirito and his sister discovered it some months ago and he had always planned to come back to it at some point. Now that other players know it is there for the taking, the race is on to be the one that claims the legendary sword.

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 Authority

Despite his heart-wrenching introduction to the darker side of life in the capital and the loss of his friends from the village, Tatsumi still isn’t completely sold on the idea of joining the rather eccentric Night Raid. Still, he has been brought to their hideout (which limits his options), so Leone introduces him to the rest of the group.

Psycho-Pass 2

Makishima Shougo is dead, and Akane Tsunemori still works for Public Security. With a new junior inspector and two new Enforcers she struggles to protect the public from the latent criminals in their midst, whilst hiding from them the horrible truth of the Sybil System. But a new menace walks the streets, a new threat that once again cannot be judged by Sybil. And this time they’re not just a lone psychopath, this time they’re recruiting.

Tonight’s Episode:What Colour?” Finale

Kamui’s purpose in hijacking and terrorizing so many people was to overload Sybil with judgements so he could pinpoint its location. Sybil meanwhile tries to kill them all with explosives, and tries to get Akane to push the button by revealing what happened to her grandmother (but not who actually did it). Akane, however, is no one’s fool. She knows all about Enforcer Tougane, and his mother. Instead, she’s going to bring Kamui to Sybil so that it can be judged. The system will be forced to evolve.

Danganronpa

Hope’s Peak Private Academy is a famous boarding school, known as a place for students who are the best in their field. When the unremarkable Makoto Naegi wins a lottery to enter the school he and fourteen other new students find the horrible truth hidden within; Hope’s Peak is a prison, and the only way out is to kill one of the other inmates without getting caught.

Tonight’s Episode:The Junk Food of Despair for Racing Through Youth

For the first time, a death in Hope’s Peak Academy was not a murder. Oghami Sakura took her own life in order to allay the suspicion and mistrust that arose from learning she was the mastermind’s agent amongst the students. Deprived of a student to execute, Monobear instead gets his amusement by revealing he has found the laptop with Alter Ego, and destroying that instead. But Kirigiri’s solo investigations have turned up another bombshell. There is a sixteenth student somewhere in the school with them; Ikusuba Mukuro, the Super Duper High School Student of Despair.
