Plot Summary: [Source: Wikipedia] The story takes place in the fictional Japanese metropolis of City Z. The world is full of strange monsters that mysteriously appear and cause disasters. Saitama, the protagonist, is an exceptionally powerful hero who easily defeats the monsters or other villains with a single punch. However, due to his overwhelming strength, Saitama has become bored with his powers and is constantly trying to find stronger opponents who can fight him. On his adventures, he meets new friends, enemies, and his own disciple, the cyborg Genos, and joins the Heroes Association in order to gain fame for all of his efforts to defeat evil. Despite defeating many strong monsters that even the Heroes Association’s top members are unable to defeat, Saitama struggles to gain respect. Most people look down on him due to his plain physical appearance, and some accuse him of being a counterfeit hero. Only a small number of individuals recognize his incredible talent and humility towards others.

Plot Summary: [Source: Wikipedia] Zenigata is assigned to protect Elena Gotti, the famous wife of a recently deceased billionaire, Roberto Gotti. In fact it's said that she's the only one to know where Roberdo hid all his money, so her life is continuously threatened by many robbers, included Lupin. Elena was a poor girl forced into prostitution by her own father, until she met Roberto which saved her; but when he found out that she had a lover he spread the false news about her knowing about his caveau's hideout before he died, in order to make her life a living hell. Zenigata manages to protect her from Lupin, but it's later revealed that she was really aware of the caveau's hideout: however, after having known Zenigata, she decides to use it for the good of Italy.

D I M E N S I O N   W
Plot Summary: [Source: Wikipedia] In the year 2072, the world's energy problems seem solved by a network of cross-dimensional electric-field inductors—"coils"—that extract energy from a seemingly infinite source. That source is the W dimension, a fourth plane that exists beyond the X, Y, and Z dimensions. In this world, unofficial "illegal" coils harness powers that the police can't hope to counter. Dealing with these coils is the job of coil-hating repo man Kyoma, whose run-in with the unique coil android Mira leads the two to form a reluctant partnership. 

3:00 - 4:45    Ajin - Movie Part 1
A  J  I  N  (Movie - Part 1)
Plot Summary: [Source: Wikipedia] The story is about a student named Kei Nagai, who discovers he is an immortal "Ajin" when he is hit by a truck. He becomes a wanted person because the Ajins are considered "criminals" and the only person who is there to support him is his best friend, Kaito. In reality, the Ajins are branded criminals so they can be easily hunted down and captured for research and cruel experimentation in order to unlock, control, and eventually reproduce the strange powers that all Ajins have, even though many of the Ajins themselves don't understand or even know why they have their abilities. As a result, many of the Ajin encountered in the series are cold and unfeeling; some even look down on humans with contempt and wish death upon them.
