Re:Zero -Starting Life in Another World-
Plot Summary: [Source: Wikipedia] Subaru Natsuki is surprisingly summoned to another world. With no sign of who summoned him he soon befriends a silver-haired half-elf girl. When he and the girl are mysteriously killed, Subaru awakens and discovers that he has the ability "Return by Death" enabling him to reverse time by dying, though only he remembers the events of the previous timeline. On the way home from the convenience store, Subaru finds himself in another world. As he scrambles around trying to figure out where he is, he converses with a food vendor, and then gets attacked by three hoodlums in an alley. Subaru is saved by a fairy girl, who introduces herself as "Satella", and her accompany, Puck; and he decides to return the favor by getting her insignia back that was stolen by Felt. Subaru and "Satella" travel to the loot house Felt lives in only to find out that she was killed, and shortly after entering the house they are killed. Subaru's special ability then activates to rewind time and he finds himself back at the moment he was speaking with the vendor. He decides to head out to the loot house; he meets Felt and Rom, and negotiates with them for the insignia. The person who killed Subaru in the first timeline, Elsa, arrives and the two submit their offers for the insignia. Subaru offers his cell phone whose camera feature is perceived to be more valuable than the money Elsa has and Felt and Rom accepts his offer. However, Elsa kills everybody again when Subaru states his intention to give the insignia back to its original owner. Subaru revives back to the moment he was speaking with the vendor again. He sees "Satella" and greets her, but she questions why he addresses her with the name of the "Jealous Witch".

J O K E R   G A M E
Plot Summary: [Source: Wikipedia] The story is set in the autumn of 1937 near the beginning of the Japanese occupation of Manchuria. Most of the first episode occurs within 'Greater East Asia Cultural Society' which is actually a front for the Japanese spy agency where it trains spies for insertion into other countries. This episode introduces all of the characters and introduces the viewer to the concept of 'The Joker Game'. The episode ends with the training spies searching a supposed foreign spy's home for evidence proving that he is in fact a spy. Sakuma's life is used as a pawn by one of the other spies when the act of him committing seppuku is used as a bargaining tool to get inside of the foreign man's home. It however becomes clear that actually Sakuma is being played by his superior and the other spies and there is no evidence linking the foreign man to being a spy.

Kabaneri of the Iron Fortress
Plot Summary: [Source: Wikipedia] A monster appears during the industrial revolution and infects humans with its bite, turning them into Kabane. Kabane are aggressive, undead creatures that cannot be defeated unless the glowing heart, which is protected by a layer of iron, is pierced. Unfortunately, most melee weapons and the steam presssure guns used by the Bushi are not very effective against them. On the island Hinomoto, people have built fortress-like stations to shelter themselves from these creatures. People access the stations and transport wares between them with the help of Hayajiro, armored locomotives running on steam. One day a Hayajiro under the control of the Kabane crashes into Aragane station and they attack the city. A young engineer called Ikoma uses the opportunity to test with success his anti-Kabane weapon, the piercing gun (ツラヌキ筒 tsuranuki zutsu), but is infected in the process, although he manages to resist the virus and become a Kabaneri, a human-Kabane hybrid. Assisted by Mumei, another Kabaneri who appears to help them, Ikoma and the other survivors of the station board the Hayajiro Kotetsujyo (甲鉄城 Kōtetsujō, Iron Fortress) and depart to seek shelter elsewhere, fighting the hordes of Kabane along the way.

3:55 - 4:45    Kiznaiver 5-6
Plot Summary: [Source: Wikipedia] Kiznaiver takes place in the futuristic, fictional Japanese town of Sugomori City. While the city appears to be normal, in reality, it was created to test a large-scale experiment known as the "Kizna System". The ideal goal of the currently incomplete Kizna System is to create world peace by connecting people through shared pain and suffering. All those who are connected to the system are called "Kiznaivers". If a single Kiznaiver experiences pain, either emotional or physical, the system distributes it among the other Kiznaivers. A few days before the start of summer vacation, a mysterious and seemingly emotionless girl, Noriko Sonozaki, tells high school student, Katsuhira Agata, that he has been selected to become a Kiznaiver, alongside several of his classmates. This allows Katsuhira to share his pain and build bonds with his classmates, whose lives and personalities each differ from his own. This leads to serious implications as Katsuhira's classmates attempt to shoulder each other's pain and Noriko assigns them on various missions
