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".

Plot Summary: [Source: Wikipedia] The story is set in the town of Lawless, Illinois during Prohibition, where brewed liquor dominates the black market. Angelo Lagusa, a young man whose family was murdered in a mafia dispute, seeks revenge against the Vanetti Family, particularly its don, Vincent Vanetti. After seven years in hiding following the night of the murder, Angelo receives an anonymous letter from a friend of his father's, prompting him to return to Lawless and exact his revenge. Under the name of Avilio Bruno, he begins to infiltrate the Vanetti Family by slowly befriending the don's son, Nero. However, in this dramatic 91-day story, revenge breeds revenge, and killing may yield drastic consequences. How will Angelo Lagusa and Nero Vanetti fare, in this tragic harvest field that they have only begun to sow?

Izetta: The Last Witch
Plot Summary: [Source: Wikipedia] Set in an alternate Earth on the eve of the 2nd World War, the story follows Izetta, the last surviving member of a clan of witches that possesses the ability to magically manipulate any object that they touch. Izetta pledges to help protect Princess Finé and the tiny Alpine country of Eylstadt from invasion by the imperialistic forces of Germania. In the neutral country of Westernia during a time of war, Ortfiné "Finé" Fredericka von Eylstadt, the princess of the small country of Eylstadt, is being pursued by Germanian soldiers on a train. While hiding in one of the carriages, Finé finds a mysterious capsule, opening a few of the locks before she and her escorts are forced to jump from the train. Later, Finé meets up with Britannian Lord Redford to try gain his country's support and accept Prince Henry of Britannia's offer of marriage. Unfortunately they receive news that Germanian forces have begun invading Eylstadt and she is captured by Germanian soldiers. While Finé is escorted by plane towards the capital, Neu Berlin, the capsule from earlier opens up, revealing a witch named Izetta, who Finé remembers from her childhood. Using her abilities, Izetta destroys the plane before using a rifle as a makeshift broomstick to fly Finé to safety. Izetta tries to get Finé to safety to treat injuries she received during the struggle on the plane and she is forced to use some of her magic to destroy some pursuing Germanian fighter planes. After Izetta runs low on magic, Finé uses the rifle they are riding to drive off the remaining plane before they both fall into the forest below. They continue on foot, where they come across a group of Elystadtian soldiers who lost Fort Schweizen to the Germanians. While the medic treats Finé's injuries, Izetta recalls how she first met Finé, who befriended her despite knowing she was a witch; the last of her kind. Recalling how Finé once saved her life, Izetta declines Finé’s request to flee to safety and instead offers to help protect her country.

2:05 - 2:55    Little Witch Academia (TV series) eps 4-5
Little Witch Academia (TV Series)
Plot Summary: [Source: Wikipedia] Having been inspired by the illusory magic of the performing witch, Shiny Chariot, Atsuko "Akko" Kagari decides to enroll at Luna Nova Magical Academy, where Shiny Chariot studied. On her way to the school, she gets teased by the other students, who mock her non-magical bloodline. Unable to fly on a broom through a leyline leading to Luna Nova, Akko manages to get a lift from another new student, Lotte Yanson. However, because of some salty pickled plums Akko was carrying, she and Lotte, along with another witch named Sucy Manbavaran, end up falling out of the leyline into the forbidden Arcturus Forest. Put in a tough situation after Sucy lures out a giant cockatrice in order to collect one of its feathers, Akko comes across Shiny Chariot's wand, the Shiny Rod, summoned by her unshakeable faith in becoming a witch. As the cockatrice continues to pursue the girls, one of Luna Nova's teachers, Ursula, gives Akko the magic words needed to use the Shiny Rod, allowing the girls to escape through a portal leading straight to Luna Nova. Making it just in time for the opening ceremony and avoiding expulsion, Akko, Lotte, and Sucy learn that they will be roommates for the next three years. Akko begins her first day of lessons at Luna Nova, but the classes do not turn out to be as glamorous as she thought they would be. In addition, she has her first clash with the school's top student, Diana Cavendish, over their diverging views towards Shiny Chariot. While Akko later ponders over Chariot's unexplained disappearance ten years ago, Diana attempts to revive the academy's Jennifer Memorial Tree, which has been declining due to lack of nutrients, but instead her restoration spell reveals apparently parasitic growths feeding off its roots. From the Shiny Chariot trading cards she collected in her childhood, Akko recognizes these growths as the chrysalises of the Pappiliodya, an extremely rare species of magical butterflies, and manages to stop Diana before she can obliterate the cocoons. Using a spell listed in her trading card and some pronunciation help from Diana, Akko manages to use the Shiny Rod to successfully hatch the Pappiliodya, although the teachers assume Diana is the one responsible.
