Life is full of journeys; some are short, just a walk down the beach; others cover years, and span continents. For the Flame Maidens of Seize in the 1121st Platoon, their journey has been accelerating towards an epic collision of forces, as two armies march towards what could be their final confrontation in today's heart-wrenching episode. Kino's eponymous wanderings find her in yet a new land, meeting a young woman launching her own journey of discovery. Finally, we end our anime meanderings today by reliving the journey of the Fate/stay night characters in a creative re-imagining of their story, in Unlimited Blade Works.
Showings are presented in Japanese language audio with English subtitles and are suggested for ages 13 and over unless otherwise specified. Starting times are approximate: Come early!

Abunai! Break time!
Travel has been a central element of all of our shows so far today, whether wandering to new towns to engage in new trades, dashing to the battlefield to change the fate of two empires, or strolling to a new job location as an exchange employee. Now it's time for each of us to do some travel of our own as we scurry out to get some food during break, but remember to be back by 2:30pm for our monthly drawing!
