– Also this Thursday, it might still be possible to book tickets to attend Whirlwind Quintet perform Japanimation soundtrack music at at Lyric’s Underground in Maylands.
– Then there is the sad news that Akira Toriyama, creator of “Dragonball”, “Dr Slump” and other best selling manga has passed away at the age of 68.
– Then for our GunPla otaku, and other people who enjoy assembling model kits, beloved Little Robot is closing down their bricks and mortar store and moving online only. But not without a 20% closing down sale.

And then there is the last minute news that the Curtin Pop Culture Club has an anime quiz night this Friday evening at Curtin University, Building 401 Room 155. Doors open at 5:30PM for a 6PM start.

After all that, please don’t forget to attend JAFWA this Saturday for our usual anime goodness, plus a preview episode of “Witch and Beast”.

The Masterful Cat is Depressed Again Today (Dekiru Neko wa Kyou mo Yuuutsu)

One day, a young woman named Saku took in a stray black cat who she later named Yukichi. However, as time went on, Yukichi grew large enough to be mistaken for a bear. Instead of being a threat though, Yukichi spends his time cooking food, doing laundry, and taking care of his owner after she comes home from hard days at work.

This Evening’s Episode:The Masterful Cat Is Photogenic

The cold of Winter causes Saku much distress, so what has happened to that staple of Japanese homes, the electric Kotatsu? Will toe beans ever be warm again? What sort of bribery is needed? But then Saku’s mom sends a care package on the proviso she gets a photo of little Yukichi, but getting a good photo of Yukichi proves difficult.

The Apothecary Diaries (Kusuriya no Hitorigoto)

Apothecary Maomao was just out collecting herbs when she was kidnapped by procurers for the Imperial harem, an easy way for unscrupulous people to get money by having “relatives” go work in the Rear Palace. Hiding her skills and knowledge, Maomao hopes to just glide by, earning as little as possible for her kidnappers during her term of service, but such is not to be: when royal infants begin dying, Maomao can’t resist letting people know the cause. This catches the eye of the far-too-handsome Jinshi, who elevates Maomao from laundry maid to poison taster to the Emperor’s favorite concubine. So much for flying under the radar…

Tonight’s Episode:Homecoming

With the events following the garden party, Maomao had to rest due to poison, until gets bored and starts investigating the crime with forensic precision.

Now grown more confident in her role as a sleigh beggy, Chise was able to accept Elias and herself, if not necessarily everything about her situation. After Cartaphilus fell back into a slumber that would not last forever, Chise was able to go back to her regular life. Then she receives an invitation from a mutual aid organization for mages called the College.
