Below is the program for November 12th, 2016.
We return from our week off, where presumably everybody enjoyed the Japanese Film Festival.

It seems that people enjoy having a little 5 minute or less anime series on the JAFWA program. We thought we were going to wait until January before we started a new regular series after “Onsen Yousei Hakone-chan” finished. But instead this week we will start a new series of 3-minute long episodes.
And we realise that you are missing the retro time-slot. There is not enough time before the end of year to screen a retro series, so we found a one-off item from 1994.
All to soften the blow that two of our regular series conclude tonight.

Flying Witch Petit “+”
Restaurant of Many Orders

We are still taking suggestions as to what we should be screening during the End of Year marathon screening on December 10th? Would there be any particular activities you would like to do that day?

Have you heard? Madman is once again selling manga!

Akagami no Shirayukihime – (Shirayuki (“Snow white”) princess of the red hair)

Shirayuki is a young pharmacist from the kingdom of Tanbarun who is cheerful, spirited and dedicated to her job. She also has brilliant red hair, which is very rare. When the first prince of Tanbarun decides to claim her unique beauty for himself, Shirayuki flees to the neighbouring kingdom of Clarines to start her life over. There may be eccentric nobility here as well, but there are also friends, and at least she can do her job.

Tonight’s Episodes:The Back Full of Meaning

First Prince Izana, the crown prince of Clarines and Zen’s older brother returns home and wary of Zen’s relationship with Shirayuki, invites Prince Raj from Tanburan for a visit to Clarines with unknown intentions.


The little restaurant of Wagnaria has a very eccentric staff that, against all odds, keep the place running and the customers coming back. Amidst the scheming assistant chef, the blasé boss, the katana wielding head waitress, the androphobe and the freeloader is Takanashi Souta, a high school student lured into working here by his obsession with anything small and cute … like waitress Taneshima Popura.

Tonight’s Episodes:Yamada vs. Yamada

Following last time’s attempt by Izumi to get her brother a girlfriend, Souta must consider the possibility that boy-fearing Inami actually has feelings for him. Meanwhile the youngest waitress Yamada (not her real name), who has run away from home is busy making the restaurant staff into her ideal family. Then annoying Yamada-kun, who claims to be looking for his sister, comes to the restaurant during fake Yamada’s shift.

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 Episodes:My Wish

Sunakawa Ai, Suna’s college age sister, has realised that Yamata has a secret that she hasn’t been able to tell Takeo. And Takeo is becoming aware that there is something hidden. Can Sunakawa Ai act as an intermediatory to rescue the situation? Especially as she has a secret also. What is Rinko’s confession?

Retro OAV from 1994 – Chuumon no Ooi Ryouritan (restaurant with Many Orders)

A short film based on a story by famed Japanese writer Kenji Miyazawa.
Two young British hunters get lost in the woods and discover a strange restaurant. Are the hunters about to discover how it feels to be the hunted?

Hai to Gensou no Grimgar (Grimgar of Fantasy and Ash)

Haruhiro awoke in this strange land with no memory of where he had come from or how he had got here. He and his companions were given little choice; serve in the militia defending the region from the various monsters or starve, and so they struggle to make a living as soldiers. There is nothing easy about this life and making ends meet is a challenge for six people who, it seems, had never held weapons before. Teamwork may be the only thing that can keep them alive, but for that they actually need to function as a team.

Tonight’s Episodes:See You Tomorrow…” Finale

Things have turned for the worst in the battle in the Mines of Cyrene. Ranta is trapped in the 5th level with the murderous Death Spots, while Haruhiro and the rest look for a way to rescue him.

One Punch Man

Saitama is a superhero, a man of such incredibly refined fighting prowess he can defeat any opponent with a single punch. And he stands ever ready to defend the people of City A no matter what terror besets them. But when you dedicate yourself to your job so completely that your hair falls out, you do not want that job to become boring …

Tonight’s Episodes:The Strongest Hero” Finale

Lord Boros of the Dark Matter pirates has crossed the universe to find a warrior strong enough to challenge him. And Saitama has finally found a foe that can survive one of his punches. For the Fate of the Earth, battle commences.

Gate: Jieitai Kano Chi nite, Kaku Tatakaeri (Gate: The Self Defence Forces Fight Like This in That Place)

Youji Itami is a 33-year old otaku. He loves anime and does his best to never miss a convention or product sale. Youji is also a member of Japan’s Self Defense Force. After an invasion of Tokyo from an alternate universe, Youji’s unit is sent through the gateway to this alternate dimension to push back the invaders, taking him away from his beloved anime and manga. But maybe this won’t be all bad … because this parallel universe is straight out of a fantasy manga.

Tonight’s Episode:Lover

While Itami flees the assassins that are after Lelei, Crown Prince Zorzal consolidates control over the Empire. With her family destroyed, young Sherry Thierry must seek sanctuary with the people of her husband-to-be.

Re:Zero kara Hajimeru Isekai Seikatsu (Re: Life in a Different World from Zero)

Being teleported to a fantasy world means you’re the chosen one, right? Natsuki Subaru certainly thought so, but it seems he’s not the fated hero, he’s just another guy in a world full of wizards, warriors and demi-humans. Still, there are decent people in this world and Subaru quickly finds people willing to lend him a hand, people he wants to help in return. But how can a mere high school student hope to challenge the monstrous and magical forces of this world? After all he only gets one shot at this, right?

Tonight’s Episodes:The Morning of Our Promise is Still Distant

The reset point of Subaru’s Death Revival has changed to when he first awoke in the Roswaal manor. But how did he die that last time? If he follows the same path exactly, can he find out why? But this time he is not blindly stumbling while repeating his steps, which seems to change the path. And what of his Promise to Emilia to take her on a date?

Sakurako-san no Ashimoto ni wa Shitai ga Umatteiru (A Corpse is Buried Under Sakurako’s Feet)

Tatewaki Shoutarou has a life outside his high school, one that makes the drama and socialising of his peers seem far less important to him. He assists Sakurako Kujou, an unsociable and obsessive collector of bones and the niece of a prominent forensic scientist. But this eccentric isn’t just interested in bones, she is an expert in them. When she and Shotaro go out collecting, they seem to have a knack for finding human remains, and Sakurako’s keen eye and forensic knowledge can quickly tell what befell the previous owner of the latest set of bones she has become obsessed with.

Tonight’s Episodes:The Cursed Man, Part 1

Police Officer Utsumi requests the assistance of Sakurako-san to help convince a friend of his that the friend will not be dying from a curse. As coincidences and cursed items accumulate, how will the ever rational Sakrako-san deal with this?

Jojo no Kimyou na Bouken – Stardust Crusaders (Jojo’s Bizzare Adventure – Stardust Crusaders)

It’s 1989. Fifty odd years have passed since Joseph Joestar did battle with the immortal Pillar Men and now his Japanese grandson, Jotaro Kujo, finds his life turned upside down. A strange new ability awakens within his bloodline, granting him great power but threatening to kill his mother.

… An ancient enemy of the family has returned.

Tonight’s Episodes:Lovers: Part 1

After defeating and capturing Enya-baba, our heroes continue to cross Pakistan enroute towards Egypt. But a roadside stop for supplies provides the next assassin Stand user as well as kebabs. For now they face the weakest stand ever. After seeing what it does to captive Enya, three of our heroes run away leaving Jotaro to be humiliated by stand user Steely Dan.
