Screening on Saturday 13th October 2018


Below is the program for the evening of Saturday October 13th, 2018.

This week we start another new regular series that we hope you find is a gem.

Though people have been asking if we will show anymore 5 minute shows before the Dinner Break. We have one little episode that seems to embrace the season of Spring, so we will take a look at that this week, though I cannot promise another episode next week.

Land of the Lustrous
Chio-chan no Tsuugakuro Banana Fish

Let us see if we finally have an evening with clement weather, now that the Spring Equinox has passed, and our old enemy the Sun is gaining ascendancy.
