1:20 - 2:10    Dororo 10-11
DORORO
Plot Summary: [Source: Wikipedia] Dororo revolves around a rōnin named Hyakkimaru (百鬼丸) and young orphan thief named Dororo (どろろ) during the Sengoku period. The rōnin was born malformed, limbless and without facial features or internal organs. This was the result of his birth father daimyō Kagemitsu Daigō forging a pact with 48 sealed demons (12 in the anime) so that he might rule the land and increase its wealth and prosperity. In return, he promised the demons any that they want that belong to him. This enabled them to roam free and commit atrocities along the countryside. After his mother Oku was forced to set him adrift on the river, lest he be killed by his father, the infant was subsequently found and raised by Jukai-sensei, a medicine man who used healing magic and alchemical methods to give the child prostheses crafted from the remains of children who had died in the war. The boy became nearly invincible against any mortal blow as a result of the prostheses and healing magic. Grafted into his left arm was a very special blade that a traveling storyteller presented to Jukai-sensei, believing it was fated to be within his possession given that ever since the boy had been discovered, the doctor had been visited by goblins. As revealed in a short tale about the blade's origin, the blade had been forged out of vengeance to kill goblins as well as other supernatural entities.


2:10 - 2:35    The Rising of the Shield Hero 9
The Rising of the Shield Hero
Plot Summary: [Source: Wikipedia] Naofumi Iwatani was summoned into a parallel world along with three other people to become the world's Heroes. Each of the heroes were respectively equipped with their own legendary equipment when summoned. Naofumi happened to receive the Legendary Shield, the sole defensive equipment, while the others received weapons capable of attacking. Unlike the other heroes who are fully supported by the kingdom and gain several strong allies each, Naofumi's luck turns to the worse after his single companion, later revealed to be none other than Princess Myne, betrays him, and leaves him devoid of all assistance and supplies after she falsely accuses him of sexually assaulting her. 

Shunned by everyone from the King to peasants, Naofumi is forced to train as a hero alone while working to make ends meet, until he buys from a slave trader a young raccoon demi-human girl named Raphtalia and an egg that hatches into a bird creature whom he names "Filo", both quickly growing into adulthood and becoming powerful warriors under his care. As they little by little gain the trust and gratitude of the people with their heroic actions, Naofumi and his companions work hard to fulfill their mission as saviors of the world, while unraveling its deepest secrets. 


2:35 - 4:45    A Silent Voice [Feature Presentation]
A Silent Voice
In honor of Kyoto Animation Studio, we proudly
present one of their crowning achievements...
Plot Summary: [Source: Wikipedia] Japanese teenager Shoya Ishida intends to commit suicide. Coming to his senses at the last minute, he recalls his days in elementary school and the events that have led him here. A new student named Shoko Nishimiya informs the class that she is deaf. She tries to integrate with the class but ends up annoying Shoya and his friends. Shoya and a few classmates start to bully her. When word of the bullying reaches the principal, Shoya is singled out as the culprit. Soon, the class's bullying is directed toward him, subjecting him to the same treatment he gave Shoko. Shoya blames Shoko and the two get into a physical altercation. She is subsequently transferred to another school. He later finds Shoko's notebook and keeps it. Now in high school, Shoya is a social reject. He blocks out the faces of those around him, unable to look them in the eye. Tomohiro Nagatsuka, another loner, befriends Shoya after he helps Tomohiro with a bully. Shoya visits the sign language center to return Shoko's notebook in the hopes of making amends and reveals he has learned sign language. The two begin meeting at a bridge to feed bread to koi. One day, Shoya jumps into a river after Shoko does the same to retrieve the notebook they drop, which is prohibited. Yuzuru Nishimiya, Shoko's younger sister, secretly takes a photo of Shoya jumping in and posts it online. Shoya is suspended. Shoya finds Yuzuru, who ran away from home, and brings her to stay at his house. When she leaves in the middle of the night, Shoya follows and tells her that he is remorseful for the way he treated Shoko, and she decides to go home. The sisters' mother, Yaeko Nishimiya, slaps Shoya's face before bringing Yuzuru inside. Shoya and Shoko reunite with Miyoko Sahara, a classmate from elementary school who was friendly to Shoko. Shoko gives Shoya a gift and confesses her feelings for him, but because she tries to speak her affections rather than signing them out, Shoya does not understand her.
