preview item – The Weakest Tamer Began a Journey to Pick Up Trash (“Saijaku Teim? wa Gomihiroi no Tabi o Hajimemashita”)

Young Ivy can’t catch a break. Though she has a few memories of her past life, she was reborn into an RPG-like world in the weakest class, and worse, as the weakest rank. As a no-star Tamer, even her parents want nothing to do with her, and she soon realizes she must survive on her own. She learns to live off the land and salvage what she can from other people’s leavings. But when Ivy manages to tame Sora, a lowly slime, everything changes for both of them. There’s something special about this frail little monster, and Ivy’s care will bring out the best in both of them.

This evening’s Episode:On a Journey Alone

Femicia, an 8-year-old tamer who is deemed an unwanted child by her family and fellow villagers for being starless, sneaks out of Latomi village during the night and grabs her resources that were given to her by the village’s fortune teller. Along the way, she remembers pieces of her past life, and heeding the advice of her past life, she takes on a boyish appearance and a new name, Ivy. Ivy befriends a disintegrating slime, the weakest monster in existence and the only monster she can tame, and shares her life struggles with it.

For ten years, elf mage Frieren traveled with Himmel the hero, Heiter the priest, and Eisen the dwarf warrior as they quested to destroy the demon king.

This Evening’s Episode:Killing Magic

This Evening’s Episode:The Masterful Cat Can Watch the House?

The company trip is coming and Saku forgot about it. What is she to do without Yukichi? What is Yukichi to do, except to plan everything then stay home and finally look after home? Can they survive without each other?

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:Reducing Two to One

Maomao confronts Fengming about past events involving Ah-Duo’s baby and the empress dowager’s child. She discovers that Ah-Duo lost the ability to give birth after her first child partially due to the doctor attending another royal birth.
