Dates of Interest
- May 24th May – Rather than a regular JAFWA screening, President Drew is sponsoring the night and putting in what he wants to see (strong possibility of “Macross: Do you remember love?”). However he welcomes suggestions for one or two other items to finish filling out the night.
- June 28th – JAFWA annual elections – vote for anime overlord. (Possible date change – await news)

Karasuma Sakura is the English teacher at Alice and Shino’s school. Shino and her friends make English classes entertaining if nothing else, although Alice still sees her as a rival for Shino’s affections.

Tonight’s Episode: “Their Remarkable Encounter“
Every school has at least one black sheep and at the prim and proper all-girl Fujisaki High School that’s Kurahashi Riko. Two of the school’s newest students find her a little intimidating, at least until she saves them from an incoming soccer ball. The school’s other idol, and Riko’s polar opposite, is the student council president Maki Natsuo. Elegant, friendly, and top of her class. A year after getting in, the point at which the boredom of this perfect little school was just starting to get to her, Riko is asked by one of the teachers to take some printouts to the student council room…

His brother has thwarted his attempts to cut off communication with the rest of his family, and he has learned the high cost that carelessness and inattention can have on a dairy farm. But in spite of it all Hachiken has learned some valuable lessons and walked away with a decent paycheck. But summer break is over and its time to return to school, where Pork Bowl is fast becoming a full-grown pig … and fast approaching the end of his life. He is still the runt, however, and his stunted growth means he will be graded poorly, and sell for less, when he is finally slaughtered.

Tonight’s Episode: “Space-Time Goldfish: Part 1“
The Galileo has arrived at the Libyan desert, location of the sixth and final sketch. But there is something extra with it this time, an old telescope. As Hozuki examines it Anna thinks back to her last phonecall to Roberto. Their time in Japan may have troubled her conscience, but Anna is still Roberto’s spy. Back onboard the Galileo Hozuki questions Anna about the possible seventh sketch she mentioned when they first met, but suddenly an alarm sounds. An enemy vessel is approaching, and even worse, the Galileo is running low on fuel and cannot make an escape.
Hazama Masayoshi; male model by day, superhero by night. Or at least, that is the plan.

Police officer Hidenori Goto 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: “Predetermined Order“
Despite his dramatic first appearance, King Torture has quickly become almost irrelevant. One of his monsters appears, Samurai Flamenco defeats it. Noone even bats an eyelid anymore. The government is paying less and less attention, and Hazama is no longer giving much thought to the suicidal antics of his opponents. Mari has almost completely lost interest in the entire affair. Only Gotou is still concerned by all this, however his job has now mostly been reduced to cataloguing Hazama’s victories for the police report.
Jormungand: Perfect Order

Tonight’s Episode: “World of Shame (final)”
Jonah has done what he never believed he would do. He has left Koko and become a bodyguard for Kasper. Koko demonstrated the power of Jormungand by having Bookman kidnapped in North Africa and immediately rescued by the US Navy, effortlessly bypassing the communications security of both groups. But it has now been two years and Koko still has not set Jormungand fully into action. The conflicts she predicted have broken out across the globe and even Kasper sees a third world war as nearly inevitable.

Tonight’s Episode: “Silver Bamboo“
Akihito finds himself the focus of a conflict between the Nase Clan and the Dreamshade Hunter’s Association. Of course there is little he is able to do about it since Izumi secretly put him into a coma just as the Lull began. Now, just as Fujima Izumi and Ayaka come to blows outside Aya’s shop for possession of the unfortunate half-dreamshade, and just as Kuriyama heads back to Aya’s shop to spend the night with him (Sakura having persuaded her to be more honest with her own feelings) the monstrous side of Akihito’s body begins to express itself again.
