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.

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.

This evening’s Episode:Fatal Situation

As Popura becomes more aware of the relationships blooming around her, she and Aoi question Otoo about the restaurant’s stance on romantic relationships. Later, Minegishi comes to the restaurant to tell S?ta something and gets punched by Mahiru, leading her to feel she hasn’t gotten over her androphobia. But S?ta will have to encounter something more fearful.

retro – Bubblegum Crisis

In the near future, Tokyo was left flattened as a result from a great earthquake. A new city, MegaTokyo, was then recreated due in no small part from the aid of a multi-million dollar company, Genom Corp. Genom created and mass-produced biomechanical creatures called Boomers to aid in the restoration of MegaTokyo. When the Boomers began to run out of control, the ADPolice at first tried to stop them, but they proved to be far more difficult to deal with than was first imagined. Under the ever looming Boomer threat, a group of four girls from varying degrees of society banded together. Calling themselves The Knight Sabers, they were the only ones with enough firepower and resourcefullness to defend the fledgling MegaTokyo from Genom and its berserk Boomers.

This evening’s Episode:Tinsel City Rhapsody

The Knight Sabers are hired to rescue a little girl from a group of kidnappers, but the girl is far more than she seems…

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 …

This evening’s Episode:My Friend and I

On June 15, after seeing his friend Makoto Sunakawa off, Takeo begins his birthday outing with Rinko, following the plan that Makoto had laid out for him.

Kaizaki Arata is 27 years old and has held a full time job for a grand total of 3 months (quitting because it “wasn’t a fit for his talents”).

When his parents finally get sick of sending him money he is thrown a lifeline by Yoake Ryou, a representative of the RELife Company.

Tonight’s Episode:Turnover

Yamada is in the staff room, getting chewed out by his teacher for his poor behaviour both in and out of class. It’s not a lecture he wants to hear, he left his previous school just to avoid being known as a delinquent but it seems things are no different here. Having the teacher compare him to the model student Shiraishi is just infuriating, so when Yamada spots her a few moments later on the stairwell, he decides to do something about it …

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?

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.
