Maomao, a young girl who works as an apothecary in the red-light district, is kidnapped and sold to the Imperial Palace as a servant. However, she still retains her curious and eccentric personality and plans to work there until her years of servitude are over, without drawing the attention of anyone. One day, after hearing the rumors that the emperor's children are critically ill, she begins to investigate the cause, using her experience as a pharmacist, and successfully solves the mystery of their illness. Even though she intends to remain anonymous, her actions eventually catch the attention of an influential eunuch, and soon finds herself solving various mysteries in the royal court.

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.
2:30 - 3:20   Goblin Slayer II ep 3-4
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.

If you find it, walk through and you'll find your heart's desire on the other exchange for years of your own life. Kaoru Tono is on his way home from school when he wanders into a tunnel one day. Rumor has it this tunnel can grant you any wish-but if you spend too much time there, you will lose many years of life. What he finds there is not quite what he expected-particularly as he's exiting, and he finds, waiting for him, the troublesome new transfer student Anzu Hanashiro....
