How did this young boy become notorious gentleman thief "Lupin III"? Loosely based on Young Lupin III from the original manga, Lupin Zero will tell a nostalgic, yet brand new original story, finally lifting the veil cast upon Lupin III's humble beginnings. Set during the era in which the original series was first published, the anime depicts Young Lupin III running around the streets of 1960's Japan during the country's economic boom. A young boy climbs the staircase to villainhood. What was he thinking and what steps did he take? This is the untold origin story of the world's greatest thief.

Plot Summary: 
Mitsumi Iwakura is a sparkling high school student who moved from Hashikko in Ishikawa Prefecture to high school in Tokyo after graduating from junior high school. Mizumi grew up in a depopulated area in Hashikko, so she is straight, beautiful and natural. However, on the day of her entrance ceremony, she gets lost early, gets caught in the commuter rush and gets drunk, and her life plan is quickly frustrated and depressed. Then, a tall and handsome boy who was worried about Mitsumi called out to her and decided to go to school together everyday.
12:05 - 12:55   Trigun Stampede eps 8-9
Plot Summary:
Vash the Stampede's a joyful gunslinging pacifist, so why does he have a $$6 million bounty on his head? That's what's puzzling rookie reporter Meryl Stryfe and her jaded veteran partner when looking into the vigilante only to find someone who hates blood. But their investigation turns out to uncover something heinous—his evil twin brother, Millions Knives.

Plot Summary: In the outside world, fifteen years have passed since an unprecedented disaster completely destroyed modern civilization. A group of children live in a facility isolated from the outside world. One day, one of them, a girl named Tokio, receives a message that says "Do you want to go outside of the outside?" Mimihime, another girl who lives in the same facility, has a prediction and tells the upset Tokio that two people will come from the outside to save her, one of whom has his same face, while the director of the school tells her that the outside world is Hell. Meanwhile, a boy named Maru, who looks just like Tokio, is traveling through this devastated Japan with a girl named Kiruko, in search of Heaven.

Plot Summary:  Star Wars: Visions is an animated anthology series created for the American streaming service Disney+. Produced by Lucasfilm, the series consists of original animated short films set in, or inspired by, the Star Wars universe, with each episode being a self-contained narrative produced by a non-American studio. The second volume expanded the show's reach to various studios across the globe, featuring shorts from animation studios El Guiri (Spain), Cartoon Saloon (Ireland), Punkrobot (Chile), Aardman (United Kingdom), Studio Mir (South Korea), Studio La Cachette (France), 88 Pictures (India), D'art Shtajio (Japan), and Triggerfish (South Africa). The creators at each studio are given free rein to re-envision the ideas of Star Wars as they see fit, while receiving guidance from Lucasfilm's executive team; further, D'art Shtajio's short was co-produced by Lucasfilm.
