The amount of attention they are getting has inspired Hachiken, he wants to do something at the cultural festival that will make people realise how cool horses and horse-riding are. Of course, the most spectacular thing the club could do is show jumping, but the only riders who can do that are the club president and Mikage. That means it’s time for the others to step up their game and learn how to clear obstacles on a horse. For Hachiken, the pressure is beginning to remind him of exams in middle school.

Unable to transform into a weapon, the attacker finishes off first Anya and then Meme, only as he attacks her does Tsugumi awaken from her nightmare. Looking at one of her family pictures makes Tsugumi think her gloomy mood may be homesickness, but her attempts to shake it off wake up first Anya and then Meme. Later, in the cafeteria, Tsugumi asks her two friends why they came to DWMA. For herself, being a weapon, there was no real choice in the matter. But she wonders what brought the two Meisters here.

Preview – 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:The Kazama Family

It’s a quiet morning at Fujou Academy. A blonde-haired girl at the front gate is bumped into by a passing student, spilling her flyers for the Game Development Club all over the ground. One student stops to help before pressing on into the school. This is Kazama Kenji, leader of the Kazama Family, a band of delinquents who have been getting a reputation around school. Which would be great as far as “Ken” is concerned except it’s the other two with a reputation and not him. Unbeknownst to Ken, the girl he helped at the front gate is meeting with the other members of the Game Development club. In addition to not developing any actual games it turns out they’re short of members, they need at least one new person …

Log Horizon

Elder Tale is an MMO with over twenty million players world wide. When a new expansion is added to the game, Shiro 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:Return of the Goblin King

The forays into the dungeon finally started going well once everyone listened to Minori and took the time to learn each other’s skills and formulate group strategies. Isuzu and Rudy’s friendship grew enough that she was willing to add Rudy to her Friend List … although doing so proved impossible. But things became far more hectic as the next morning various goblin races swarmed both the beach and the forest. News of the army reaches the nobles at the palace before Shiroe or anyone else from the Round Table. But they are not far behind. Nor is Minori and her party, who are ready to help however they can.

Samurai Flamenco

He started as an enthusiastic amateur, grew into a trained hero with high tech gadgets, and now he leads a team of heroes backed by a giant robot. Hazama Masayoshi’s childhood dream of becoming the hero Samurai Flamenco has been fulfilled and then some. Of course, to be a hero you need villains to fight. But there seems to be no shortage of candidates lining up for that role …

Tonight’s Episode:Night Before the Decisive Battle

The team has now bonded over curry rice and Hazama is confident in their ability to work together in battle, they’ve even become the first ever recipients of the National Hero Award. But something else weighs on Hazama’s mind, the Flamenger’s support staff have uncovered abandoned From Beyond bases across the country. Although this would be consistent with a group that’s on the run after their string of defeats, Midorikawa has a different theory. They may instead be grouping for a mass assault, and there may be far more of them out there than first imagined.

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 Witches’ Motive

It’s been a crazy week for Takamiya so far. Kagari Ayaka, the school’s most popular girl, is secretly a witch and his bodyguard, and a collection of colourful “Tower” witches have transferred to his school after a failed attempt first to kidnap and then to kill him. The worst part for Takamiya is he still doesn’t know why he’s being targeted, but he gets the feeling everyone else does. And so today he resolves to make Kagari explain it to him. That plan gets off to a rocky start when he realizes Kagari wasn’t on the bus to school. So Takamiya heads for their classroom to try and find her.

Genshiken Nidaime

The old guard have graduated and now only Ogiue, Ohno and Kuchiki remain. As a new year begins Genshiken is once again infused with new members, who bring with them their own quirks, tastes and personal baggage with which to befuddle, bemuse and entertain the rest of the club. The Society for the Study of Modern Visual Culture (Gendai Shikaku Bunka Kenkyukai, Gen Shi Ken) is back.

Tonight’s Episode:Cross Over My Legs

It’s Genshiken’s regular club meeting and Ogiue wants to put together a membership pamphlet. A brief introduction, and possibly artwork, from each club member. She even writes her own profile up as an example. Although she doesn’t want it to be a big thing, Ohno immediately sees it as a revival of the club’s magazine; Mebaetame. The topic quickly gets discussion started as the various club members reveal their own tastes, talents and interests as well as their assumptions of everyone else’s. Which ends, much to Yaegashi’s displeasure, with a gathering at her house.

Unfortunately for Tanikaze Nagate, training simulators can’t fill his empty stomach. Unable to bear it any longer, Tanikaze finally leaves the empty service tunnels and heads to the upper levels to find food. However his expedition does not go well …

Tonight’s Episode:Don’t Stop Me Now

The independent schools of Kyoto and Kobe have fallen to Satsuki’s forces, but Sakurada and his Osaka conglomerate are not out yet. Money buys a lot of amateur mercenaries, but using it as ammunition just gave Mako the means to fill her bag with souvenirs and her belly with exotic food.
