Screening on Saturday 28th January, 2016


Below is the program for the evening of January 28th, 2017.

It took us a while, but we are finally going to screen the original “Bubblegum Crisis” in our retro timeslot. Unfortunately it means we will have to reduce the Dinner Break by a quarter of an hour in order to fit it in. The BGC OAVs come from an era where they did not all have the same length episodes.
Though considering what this week’s preview episode is, you might not care about the shortened Dinner Break.

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 Ocean

Rinko invites Takeo and his friends to join her and her friends to the beach. As Rinko’s friends encourage her to make her boyfriend’s heart skip with a new swimsuit, Takeo remains determined to keep the beach experience purely about swimming and avoid looking at her in a lecherous way.


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. RELife gives jobless deadbeats like Arata a new lease on life… By giving them a pill that makes them look like teenagers again and having them repeat high school.

After an accident on the stairs causes himself and the school’s top student Urara Shiraishi to swap bodies, the discovery of this strange ability makes his life a great deal more complicated. But for the gruff, friendless Yamada, spending some time literally in other people’s shoes might not be such a bad thing.

Tonight’s Episode:Will You Accept? Or Won’t You?

It looks like the Supernatural Studies Club is not being assigned an official budget. Which means that Yamada won’t have a microwave to heat his lunch. Something must be done, but the cunning student president knows more about the club’s activities than Yamada realises. Which will lead to Yamada and his body swapping ability being used to find out why super-studious Shiraishi is not aiming for university.

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

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.
