10:15 - 11:05    Noragami 9-10
Plot Summary: [Source: Wikipedia] Noragami literally means "Stray God." Hiyori Iki was a regular middle school student until she gets hit by a bus in order to save Yato's life. This incident causes her to transform into a half-phantom. Soon after she learns that Yato is a war god, and her life is never the same again.
Episode 9 "Namae": Daikoku and Kofuku only allow Hiyori to come through the borderline so she can cleanse her blight, stating that Yato will die unless Yukine receives punishment by ablution. Although Daikoku manages to enlist the help of Mayu, he struggles to find a third Regalia to help perform the ablution. Rejecting the thought of calling on Nora, as she might kill Yukine, Hiyori goes to Bishamon's shrine to request Kazuma's help. As the three Regalias get together, they discover Yukine's back is covered with phantoms and begin their ablution, in which Yukine must endure pain until he confesses to his sins, or otherwise transform into a phantom himself. Yukine admits his crimes and expresses his jealousy of the living and his envy of what they have. As Yukine's condition worsens, Hiyori and Yato calls out to him, reminding him that they are his friends, and the name Yato gave him is that of a person's. Hearing this, Yukine apologises for all the bad things he had done, allowing the ablution to be successfully carried out. With both Yato and Yukine back to normal, they both feel thankful towards Hiyori for saving their lives. Meanwhile, Nora has awakened a god named Rabo, who has a grudge against Yato.
Episode 10 "Regarded with Hate": As Yukine takes up a part time job at Daikoku's food stand to help repay what he stole, he and Hiyori hear from Miyu about how Tenjin banished one of his regalias for stinging him with blight. Meanwhile, Tenjin informs Yato, who finally contemplates fulfilling Hiyori's request, that he may be able to fix her problem if he cuts his ties with her. On New Year's Day, as Yato and Yukine fight a group of phantoms, Hiyori, who was on a shrine visit with her friends, is lured out by Nora, who sends her own phantoms to chase after her. As Hiyori is saved as the phantoms are dissolved by dawn's sunlight, Nora informs her about Rabo and his desire to kill Yato, telling her to stop existing. After Yato and Yukine manage to defeat all the phantoms, they catch up to Hiyori, only to find she has no memory of who Yato is.

11:05 - 11:55     Nagi no Asukara - "A Lull in the Sea" (Episodes 10-11)
Plot Summary: [Source: Wikipedia] Long ago, human civilization had lived on the oceanfloor. However, there were many humans who wanted to live above the surface and they moved to land creating a fundamental separation between the two. After their school closes down, four middle school students from the sealand have to go to school on the mainland. This is about their lives as they adjust to a new environment and the relationships with each other.
Episode 10 "The Saltflake Snow Falls and Falls": Hikari is informed that according to Uroko, the Sea God's power is weakening and thus the saltflake snow will keep falling and cooling the world until it freezes, possibly killing all humans in the surface in the process until his powers renew and the world is restored to its former self. To avoid this fate, the people undersea will enter into hibernation and the villagers will gather for a banquet on friday, entering into a fasting period after that until the hibernation begins. Believing that the only way to please the Sea God and prevent this catastrophe is to perform the Ofunehiki, Hikari convinces Uroko to let him and his friends go to school until the time for their hibernation and they revew their effort to make it happen. During the banquet, Manaka is distraught upon the current situation and when she finally finds a sea slug with a red belly, she makes a wish for it. In the next day, Kaname approaches Chisaki and confesses his feelings for her.
Episode 11 "The Changing Times": After Kaname's confession, he and Chisaki accompany their friends to school as if nothing had happened. After their fast begins, the people of Shioshishio's Ena gets thicker in preparation for their hibernation, thus the children need to ressuply it with water more frequently while on surface. Fearing that they might never see their friends again after their sleep begins, Hikari and the others start eating again to delay the process. Meanwhile, Akari and Itaru make plans for their marriage while the fishermen asks Hikari to help them perform the Ofunehiki to please the Sea God and stop the cold. However, Iroko claims that their efforts at that point are futile but Hikari insists that they must do something. Assisted by the rest of the city, the children make their preparations for the ritual, but apparently it will happen in the same day the sea dwellers will start their hibernation. However, Akari asks the others to have her replace the offering, claiming that after pleasing the sea god she will return to marry Itaru with his blessing. After the others agree with her request, Chisaki, following Kaname's example decides to confess her feelings for Hikari as well.

They unexpectedly meet when Chitoge hops a wall and knees Raku in the face. After she runs off, Raku realizes he has lost his locket which was given to him by his childhood sweetheart with whom he made a secret promise. After discovering Chitoge is a new transfer student in his class, he forces her to help him look for the locket. During the search, they begin to dislike each other. Upon returning home, Raku learns that the Shuei-Gumi and Beehive gangs have agreed to settle their feud by pairing their leaders' children. Raku learns that his girlfriend-to-be is none other than Chitoge. For the next three years, they must pretend to be in a relationship to maintain peace between the gangs. This turns out to be quite a challenging task, not only because of their hatred for one another, but also because Raku has a crush on another schoolmate, Kosaki Onodera, whom he secretly wishes was the girl who bears the key to his locket. Various developments complicate the situation, including Chitoge's over-protective bodyguard, a female hitman, a girl who claims to be Raku's fiancée, and the existence of multiple keys.

In the present, Toru Acura is a former Saboteur (乱破師サバター Sabatā?) who lives with his sister Akari. Toru is unable to settle in this peaceful era as his Saboteur skills are useless and sees no meaning in his life. While out foraging at the forest, Toru encounters Chaika Trabant, a white haired Wizard (魔法師ウィザード Wizādo?) with a white headband and a coffin, saving her from a man eating unicorn. Seeing their skills as Saboteurs, Chaika hires Toru and Akari for an important task; to steal the remains of Arthur Gaz from the Eight Heroes. Chaika reveals she is actually Princess Chaika Gaz, the Emperor's daughter, who managed to escape during the end of the war and wishes to find her father's remains, which were divided amongst the Eight Heroes as his body part emits strong magical energy, so he may be given a proper burial. However, the trio will face difficulties with the Post-War Kleeman Agency's Gillette Corps, who are tasked in capturing Chaika as they fear her existence will gather Gaz loyalists and the rebirth of the Gaz Empire as well as the power in Arthur's remains might reignite a war. Not only that, they must also face other groups, lead by girls who also claim to be Chaika Gaz. Thus begins Toru, Chaika and Akari's journey throughout the continent.

Meanwhile, Alberic Gillette and his men from the Gillette Corps meets with Roberto Abarth, a war hero who fought against the Gaz Empire five years ago and asks Abarth an item he acquired from the war but is told to leave. Elsewhere, Chaika hires the Acura siblings to steal an item in Abarth's mansion. As Toru, Akari and Chaika sneaks into Abarth's mansion that night, they are caught by Abarth himself who mistakes them for thieves hired by Alberic to steal his item.
