3:00: Kids on the Slope
Summer 1966: Nishimi Kaoru has moved to live with relatives in Kyushu. He’s been an aloof honor student his whole life, but that starts changing when he meets Kawabuchi Sentaro, the school’s notorious bad boy. Through him, he learns the appeal of jazz and forms his first real friendships.
Each of the stories in the series involves several unrelated plots intersecting and crossing each other as events spiral further and further out of control. Immortal alchemists, mafia-operated speakeasies, and many other elements of Pulp Fiction mashed together for a world straight out of the movies.
7:15: Kabaneri of the Iron Fortress
On the island country Hinomoto, humans hide themselves in fortresses called “stations” against the threat of zombie-like beings with steel hearts known as “Kabane.” Only armored locomotives known as “Hayajiro” go between the stations.
