Japanese Film Festival
Some seriously good stuff is going to be shown. Not a lot of anime, but “Patema Inverted” is good.
Note: several of the live-action movies are based on anime – “rurou ni Kenshin” or “Kiki’s delivery Serice” anybody?
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: “Dawn on Tenrou Island“
The search for the engine room on Grimoire Heart’s vessel is becomes increasingly pointless as more and more of the ship is blown up in the battle with Master Hades. Although Happy, Carla and Pantherlilly have managed to find something equally interesting, a giant pulsing heart. The power Natsu borrowed from Laxus is enough to give even the dark guild’s master a tough time, but not enough to finish him. Instead, out of respect, Master Hades reveals his ultimate magic, the Devil’s Eye. But fear, and giving up, aren’t things Fairy Tail does. Especially not Natsu.
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: “Cheerful Child” finale
At the Eika Prize Award reception, the sharp criticism of a senior calligrapher made Seishuu snap. Big time. One plane trip later he is disembarking at the deserted Fukue Airport, as far from the elderly man he attempted to knock out as his family connections can get him. Deserted is no exaggeration, it is only by luck that a local happens to come by the airport and offer him a ride to the village of Nanatsutake.
preview – 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…
Sword Art Online, Season 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: “The Sniper of Ice“
A meeting with Kikuoka Seijiro from the Ministry of Internal Affairs and Communications has made Kirito aware of Death Gun. And despite concluding that a virtual bullet can’t kill someone, he has agreed to help investigate Gun Gale Online. And inside that particular virtual world, an ambush is being planned out. Because of their predictable patterns and armaments, monster hunting groups make easy prey for other players. And these ambushers have the top ranked sniper in GGO – Sinon.
Zankyou no Terror (Resonance of Terror)
Tokyo is under attack, from a pair of terrorists referring to themselves as ‘Sphinxes’. With a series of complicated riddles uploaded to the internet as the only warning of when and where each attack will take place the police scramble to protect the city. But there may be more to these terrorists than their appearance, or their dehumanizing names, suggest.
Tonight’s Episode: “Search and Destroy“
Twelve has given Lisa a clear warning about going to the police. Whilst the police, unable to stop the bomb in one of their own police stations, have turned to disgraced former detective Shibazaki for help. Twelve has doubts about the police’s ability to solve the riddles Nine is giving them, but Nine isn’t worried. He is confident the police have already linked the bombings with the plutonium theft. Indeed, it is that very fact which convinces Shibazaki to come out of his semi-retirement. The police, once again, begin their debriefing of the latest attack.
Witch Craft Works
Takamiya Honoka’s life used to be completely normal. That is until the day he was attacked by a Witch of the Tower and learned that Kagari Ayaka, the most popular girl in school, is secretly his personal bodyguard and a witch herself. Now Takamiya must contend with a growing procession of eccentric magic users out to either kidnap or kill him, all whilst trying to figure out why anyone is interested in him in the first place.
Tonight’s Episode: “Takamiya and the Weekend (part 1)“
The Tower witch known as Weekend has revealed herself in a most dramatic fashion. Kazane’s barrier protected the non-witches from Weekend’s bomb, but it exhausted her magical reserves. Just as Weekend intended. Now the other Workshop Witches, deprived of their magic by the collapse of Kazane’s barrier, try to hold out for reinforcements whilst Weekend proceeds with her plans for Takamiya and the White Witch. Ayaka and Takamiya meanwhile have escaped the Workshop and made their way back to the surface, where Takamiya gets his first look at the devastation.

A thousand years after mankind fled Earth, Sidonia is a vast colony ship traversing deep space. The people within, genetically altered to contend with the harsh demands of space travel and Sidonia’s limited resources, live under a military dictatorship. Nagate Tanikaze however knows almost none of this, he has spent his life in the service tunnels of the ship, training in mecha combat simulators. When he is finally found by the rest of the Sidonia’s population, Tanikaze finds himself inducted into their military to help defend the colony ship against monstrous beings known as Gauna.
Tonight’s Episode: “Collision“
Their search for Dr Ochiai’s research astonishingly led right to it, at least for Tanikaze. Captain Kobayashi revealed to him Ochiai’s gauna-human hybrid, intended to serve as a replacement for both the Gardes and its Kabizashi lance. A new experimental long range weapon has been developed from the monster, and Tanikaze even managed to successfully test it saving the thankless anti-war colonists. But it may be too soon for celebrations. The Sidonia has now encountered a gauna that formed its placenta around a dwarf planet and intends to ram the ship.
No Game No Life
Siblings Sora and Shiro have spent their life in games, rejecting the complications of the real world in favour of virtual ones and gaining a phenomenal reputation for their unbeatable teamwork.

Tonight’s Episode: “Challenger” and “Expert“
After getting their bearings in this new world Sora and Shiro have already started to make themselves comfortable. A world run on divinely enforced game rules suits them perfectly; they already have new clothes, a purse full of money and a pleasant room at the inn. But it seems Sora’s off-hand comment to one unlucky gambler has consequences. The girl in question, now wearing nothing but rags, has come to his room looking for answers and someone to vent her frustration on. Time for the Blanks to take another sucker to the cleaners.

In addition to a map and message in German to kill all the witches, activating the device brings two mystery figures to Ryouta’s location. Luckily its only after he and Kazumi have left.
