Dark Gathering
Plot Summary: Keitarō Gentōga is a college freshman who hates ghosts. Unluckily for him, he has a knack for attracting spirits. Two years ago, this connection had led to him receiving a spiritual injury on his right hand, with his friend getting caught in the crossfire. As part of his rehabilitation, Keitarō takes on the part-time job of a private tutor, and his first pupil is Eiko's cousin, Yayoi Hōzuki. Besides being a child prodigy, there is another peculiarity regarding Yayoi—she has a spiritual constitution, just like Keitarō. However, she yearns to encounter spirits, hoping to find the ghost that took her mother away.
2:25 - 3:15   Goblin Slayer II ep 1-2
Goblin Slayer II
Plot Summary: Months after Noble Fencer is rescued, she has set up a training school for novice adventurers which causes a fresh influx of novices to arrive at the town. Priestess has been an adventurer for over a year and is no longer a novice. Goblin Slayer has become popular and respected by experienced adventurers, and a subject of gossip among novices. An arrogant novice adventurer, Wizard Boy, arrives proclaiming he will kill goblins but Goblin Slayer turns down his request to teach him. Due to Wizard Boy's foolish attitude towards goblins and with nowhere to sleep, Goblin Slayer takes him to Cow Girl’s farm. His attitude doesn’t improve and he outright refuses Goblin Slayer's advice to practice hunting rats first. Priestess is saddened to learn she has been passed over for promotion to the next adventurer rank due to the belief she is being carried by her Silver-ranked party members, so High Elf Archer suggests she party with adventurers closer to her own rank. Wizard Boy mocks Priestess' indecisiveness but his arrogance quickly alienates all the other adventurers. Female Knight then intervenes and challenges Wizard Boy to prove himself by killing a goblin while teamed up with Priestess as his party leader.

Resident Evil: Death Island
Plot Summary:  In 1998, as the Raccoon City incident begins, the Umbrella Corporation hires a private military firm to help evacuate high-ranking Umbrella executives and government officials. The firm deploys Unit 6, but the majority are bitten by zombies. Surviving members JJ and Dylan Blake call headquarters to request extraction and receive medical attention, but are told to quarantine, later kill, their comrades, shocking JJ and enraging Dylan. The pair argue until the infected soldiers attack them and bite JJ. A disheartened Dylan subsequently kills him.

Seventeen years later in 2015, after the events of Resident Evil: Vendetta, in San Francisco, California, Field Operations Support (FOS) agent Ingrid Hunnigan tasks Division of Security Operations (DSO) agent Leon S. Kennedy with taking DARPA researcher and robotics engineer Doctor Antonio Taylor into custody for selling classified information to foreign powers. During the briefing, Leon learns Taylor was last seen being kidnapped by an unknown group while being hunted by a San Francisco Police Department S.W.A.T. team as the group drives by him. Leon attempts to intercept the kidnappers, but is thwarted by Maria Gomez, a criminal who survived their last encounter the year prior. Meanwhile, Bioterrorism Security Assessment Alliance (BSAA) advisor Rebecca Chambers informs Agent Chris Redfield of twelve cases wherein people had died after being mysteriously infected by an advanced strain of the T-virus and were found with needle marks on their bodies. Chris visits his partner Jill Valentine, hoping to stop her from taking part in the operation due to her time under Albert Wesker's mind control and subsequent mental health issues, but she refuses.

Chris and Jill meet with Rebecca and Chris's sister Claire Redfield to discuss their findings, during which Claire reveals she discovered an orca infected with the same T-virus strain as the victims from Chris's case swimming near the Greater Farallones National Marine Sanctuary, which had also happened recently to several missing whales. Discovering the human victims all visited Alcatraz Island before they died, Jill and the Redfields travel there posing as tourists, but get separated amidst a zombie outbreak...

  1. At least we are not in Woodale any longer, showing Goblin Slayer there would be a big no-no. >_>
    Death Island is pretty meh' and you have to watch the three older CG movies to fully understand the story.
