Plot Summary:  Idly indulging in baseless paranormal activities with the Occult Club, high schooler Yuuji Itadori spends his days at either the clubroom or the hospital, where he visits his bedridden grandfather. However, this leisurely lifestyle soon takes a turn for the strange when he unknowingly encounters a cursed item. Triggering a chain of supernatural occurrences, Yuuji finds himself suddenly thrust into the world of Curses—dreadful beings formed from human malice and negativity—after swallowing the said item, revealed to be a finger belonging to the demon Sukuna Ryoumen, the "King of Curses." Yuuji experiences first-hand the threat these Curses pose to society as he discovers his own newfound powers. Introduced to the Tokyo Metropolitan Jujutsu Technical High School, he begins to walk down a path from which he cannot return—the path of a Jujutsu sorcerer.

Plot Summary: Newly minted Jerle Federation soldiers Leo Fourcade and Celia Arvier arrive at the Fed-occupied city of Lunne with their instructor, Lisette Regnier, on a mission to shut down the Pilier, a large tower created by the Gildllan Empire that provides the town with most of its electricity by sucking the mana out of the surrounding land, leaving it increasingly barren. After dealing with enraged, ape-like beasts near the city gates, the three Feds meet with a researcher named Nicola, who holds a device crafted to shut down the Pilier. However, inside the Pilier, the group runs into two Imperial infiltrators. Alexandra von Sonne, the White Wolf, clashes with Lisette. The others find themselves facing off against Hugo Simon, a former ally who defected to the Empire. Despite their efforts, the Fed soldiers are defeated as Alexandra and Hugo escape with Nicola's device, and soon repurpose it to supercharge the Pilier instead. The following night, Alexandra fights Lisette again, and Hugo manages to jump to the top of the Pilier where Leo awaits...

Having finally reached the Yeager family basement and learned about the dark history surrounding the titans, the Survey Corps has at long last found the answer they so desperately fought to uncover. With the truth now in their hands, the group set out for the world beyond the walls. In Shingeki no Kyojin: The Final Season, two utterly different worlds collide as each party pursues its own agenda in the long-awaited conclusion to Paradis' fight for freedom.
2:40 - 4:41    Belle [Movie]
Plot Summary: Suzu Naito is a seventeen-year-old high school student who lives in the rural Kōchi Prefecture of Japan. When she was young, she was close with her mother, who supported her love for singing and writing songs. However, one day, Suzu witnessed her mother rescuing a child from a flooding river at the cost of her own life. The traumatic experience caused Suzu to resent her mother for "abandoning" her for a stranger's child and became unable to sing. The event has also led to her growing distant from her father, despite his attempts to reach out. She is alienated from most of her classmates, with the exception of her childhood friend Shinobu Hisatake (whom she has a crush on); popular girl Ruka Watanabe; her sportsman classmate Shinjiro Chikami (nicknamed Kamishin); and her genius best friend Hiroka Betsuyaku. Under Hiro's suggestion, Suzu signs into the popular virtual world known as "U", and creates a beautiful avatar with freckles she names "Bell", the English translation of her own name's meaning. Upon logging into U, Suzu finds herself capable of singing like she used to. Bell's appearance is at first criticized due to her freckles, but after making several appearances while singing and the assistance of Hiro who appointed herself as Bell's manager and producer, Bell soon becomes a big hit. Following her popularity, people start to refer her as "Belle", which means "beautiful" in French.
