Weekly Bulletin for Saturday 16th May, 2015


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”.

All items in the original Japanese language with English subtitles.

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:Mirajane vs Jenny

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.

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 Gold of the Kunie

Rather than letting them all come at the group at once, Shiroe and Silver Sword take the fight to each of the Raid Bosses. 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. But the real problem there is his handsome best friend Makoto Sunakawa, who ends up getting confessions from everyone Takeo likes. In fact it happens so often Takeo now expects it. And then one day, quite by accident, Takeo meets Rinko Yamato …

Tonight’s Episode:My Story

It is the day of Takeo’s junior high graduation, and there are tears and emotions aplenty. The remaining members of his judo club are there to see him off, but Takeo rushes his goodbyes and takes off. There’s someone else at school he wants to see before he leaves. He has been working with Satou of the Student Council for some time now, and today he is finally going to tell her how he feels … or at least he was until he found Satou confessing to his best friend Makoto.

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:Baseball Time

The students have now given a name to their strange tentacle teacher (“Koro-sensei”), who has also given Nagisa a measure of self-respect … after thwarting his ‘suicide bombing’ assassination attempt. And so, now with some confidence in his own abilities, Nagisa helps fellow student Sugino attempt an assassination on Koro-sensei using an explosive baseball.


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: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. He also defeated Shiou, although no one was paying attention to that battle, and proved himself in front of the entire school. So good news for his tough guy image. Unfortunately he and Takao have now been brought in for a meeting with the teachers … although not for the reason they initially assumed.

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:Abandoned God

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.

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:Excalibur

The struggle to reach the lowest level of King Thrym’s ice castle is a race against time as the power of the Hill Giants fades and Thrym’s ultimate victory draws closer. Their last encounter before the king’s throne room is an imprisoned NPC, Freyja, who Klein insists on rescuing. And who then insists on joining their party, despite everyone else’s misgivings about the situation. But it seems Freya is not a trap, as she gives the players a massive HP buff just before they step through the doors to the Frost Giant’s throne room. There’s not much time left.

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 Imperial Arm Users

Training with Mine does not get off to a great start, Tatsumi can’t really consider clothes shopping to be any kind of training and Mine can’t really consider him an equal. But on their next mission Tatsumi gets a look at Mine’s sniping ability, and Mine is saved from a sneak attack by Tatsumi. This might have improved their relationship except that when Mine finished off their attacker … she singed Tatsumi’s hair. But now the group has bigger worries, another assassin seems to have taken an interest in Akame’s bounty letter, and like her he has an Imperial Arm Relic.

Fate/Stay Night: Unlimited Blade Works

Tonight’s Episode:When the Curtain Goes Up

His new Servant, Saber, sees off Lancer, and tries to start a fight with Archer, who came with Rin to try and stop Lancer’s second attempt to silence the witness.

Tonight’s Episode:The Junk Food of Despair for Racing Through Youth (Part 2)

Before her death she forced open the door to the principal’s office, and in there Kirigiri found information on the hidden sixteenth student.
