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: “New Guild“
With Wendy out of commission (at least temporarily), Elfman joins the Fairy Tail team to get them through the Sky Labyrinth elimination round. This preliminary challenge is intended to whittle the teams down from 113 which, strangely, is more than the number of guilds in Fiore. Fairy Tail proceeds to solve the Sky Labyrinth challenge the old fashioned way; by taking maps from other teams by force. This works, but only just. They are in eighth place.
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: “The Manga Artist’s Brain – Nozaki-kun”
Seo and Wakamatsu’s interactions have become a strange mix of torment and misunderstandings. And through it all Wakamatsu remains oblivious to the fact that Seo is the ‘Lorelei’ of the Glee Club who’s singing brings him beautiful restful sleep. Nozaki, meanwhile, has finished his latest manuscript ahead of schedule, so Sakura invites him out to have some fun during his free time… And only after saying it realizes this would count as a date.
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.

Tonight’s Episode: “A Lost Child at Dawn“
Even with the help of the West Wind Brigade’s Guild Master Souji, Akatsuki is unable to defeat Enheart Nelreth. Not only are the Royal Guard not showing up to stop this fight taking place in the middle of town, the rogue Samurai’s health was barely touched despite multiple successful attacks.

But she is not the only one that was sent to this place between worlds …
Preview – 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 Episode: “Assassination Time”
Class 3E sits silently in their classroom. The shockwave of his landing signals that the teacher has arrived, and a few moments later he enters and begins taking attendance; while an entire classroom opens fire on him with an array of guns. With attendance taken, and the teacher completely unharmed, the students complain about the ineffectiveness of their weapons. 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.
Kazama Kenji goal in life was simple; become a famous and feared delinquent.

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: “Damn You, Fake Game Dev Club!”
Kenji has become a (not quite willing) member of the Game Development Club, although he won’t actually be attending meetings until his suspension ends. This means he hasn’t yet met the Game Dev Club’s nemesis, Takao, who is none too pleased that his membership prevented the clubs dissolution. Kenji’s suspension ends in two days, but he won’t have to wait that long to get mixed up in the club’s problems.

But Yuki still has the desires and emotions of a teenager, so when Yato scolds him for thinking impure thoughts about Hiyori, he runs off. Only to get lost on the streets and get introduced to the darker side of Yato’s world. When he fails to keep the ghost of a child killed in a car crash from being corrupted by the other phantoms, Yuki is forced to aid Yato in killing her. And now the recriminations begin …
