Breaking News In Anime-Bakuman Anime To Hit U.S. This Fall!!!!!

June 29, 2011


Hello and greetings fellow otaku,

I know that it has been a few weeks since I have updated AFC, but with my new job, looking for more work and taking a medical terminology course online, it has been one crazy summer for me so far. However, I do have some interesting news to report and a quick update of what’s to come. But enough chit chat, let get to the breaking news.

Media Blasters, the company that brought you such great titles as Genshiken, Kujibiki Unbalance and Dojin Work has recently announced that it has obtained the rights to seasons one and two of the popular anime series Bakuman. Currently, Media Blasters plans to release the first seven episodes of season one this November. The second season of the series will be airing on Japanese television this fall. The show’s manga counterpart which is distributed by Viz Media currently has five volumes available in English translation.

And now on to other business, recently I have just launched the sister site for AFC entitled AFC Gaming Zone. If you want to learn more about it, click on the link below to see more. Also, I have some reviews that are going to be posted in the next few weeks including volume one of the new Phoenix Wright manga and my first ever Japanese Movie Review in which I will be looking at the popular psycho\gothic feature film “Psycho Gothic Lolita” and trust me, you will be shocked at what you will learn about this Japanese cult classic.

So until next time, remember that there is a ton of great anime and manga out there. All you have to do is find it. Ltrs.

Afc Gaming Zone-Catherine Preview Part 1

June 10, 2011


Hello and greetings fellow otaku,

Well in less than about six weeks from now, Altus will be releasing the U.S. version of the popular Japanese Adventure\Puzzle game Catherine for the Xbox 360 and Ps3 (July 26, 2011). Now for those of you who are still on the fence on weather or not to shell out sixty to eighty bucks for the regular or collectors editions of the game (I ordered both for the Xbox 360!!!!), the following video will give you a little taste of what you can expect to see in the game.

Originally, I was going to post the dramatic climax from the game, however I decided not to do so for two reasons. 1) The scene contains some very graphic images which include blood being spilt and 2) I don’t want to ruin the last few minutes of the game for those of you who are planning on playing it.

Do keep in mind that I will be showing another clip from the game as well as give you my personal thoughts as to what I will expect for the game itself and actual gameplay footage (when the game is released) to give you a first hand experience of how it handles and the overall playability factor of the game itself. So do stay with us for more on this and other events going on in the world of video games in the Afc Gaming Zone.

So until next time, remember that there is a ton of great anime, manga, and video games out there. All you have to do is find it. Ltrs.
