Sonic Cd

Hello and greetings fellow otaku,

Well for those of you who are fans of Sonic The Hedgehog, have I got news for you. On Wednesday Microsoft had released the popular Sega CD game in the Xbox Live Arcade. The game is exactly like the original game with updated graphics and all the great stuff you remember.

The game was originally released for the Sega CD back in 1993. The game was given strong praise from popular gaming magazines such as GamePro and Electronic Gaming Monthly  with 5 out of 5 ratings and best game of 1993. However, the momentum did not last long however when the Sony PlayStation debuted a year later in 1994.

If you want to see video of the gameplay for the Xbox Live Arcade edition of the game, see it below:

Afc Showcase-JunJunJun: Japanese Hair and Makeup Artist!!!!

December 11, 2011


Hello and greetings fellow otaku,

So just yesterday I received an e-mail from a reader in Japan named Jun. She says that she is a huge anime fan and that she also enjoys reading anime blogs. I was surprised that she enjoys my site and that she is a huge fan of anime in general. In her personal life, she is a professional hair and make-up artist.

Currently she is in the process of putting together a “Guerilla” make-up show with one hundred participants in New York City. She plans to have the participants show up somewhere in Manhattan and travel all across the city to showcase her work in which she will provide updates on her Facebook page. She plans on creating a photograph collection once the project is complete.

But in order for her to make this dream a reality, she needs $5,000 for expenses. At the time of this writing, she has already received $680 (14% of what she need to complete the project). She is still $4,520 away from meeting her goal. Therefore, if you are interested in helping her making this dream a reality, I encourage you to watch the video above and if you can do so, donate whatever amount you can to support this project.

She also has some great rewards available for donating at certain levels such as a thank you e-mail from Japan, a live phone call with Jun from either Japan or New York, a souvenir from Japan or New York, a illustration of yourself or anything you want and a photograph collection of the project itself just to name a few.

For more information about this project and the rewards you can get for your support, click on the link below. So until next time, remember that there is a ton of great anime, manga and people out there. All you have to do is find them. Ltrs.

Donations for this project will end on Wednesday February 1,2012. Don’t wait until it’s too late!!!!!

Hello and greetings fellow otaku,

Now most of you readers out there who own A Wii console know that what I am about to tell you is self explanatory about the game seen above. So for those of you who have been waiting for this day or if you are considering buying an import version of this, I just have one thing to say. Your prayers have been answered.

According To Nintendo, they have officially announced that the popular Wii Game Xenoblade Chronicles which is a huge hit in Japan and Europe is finally making it way to Wii consoles in the U.S. According to video game website, the game has a slated release date of April 30,2012. Hopefully the game will be the same as the other releases around the world but if you want a taste of what it will look like, then watch the exclusive U.S. teaser trailer for the game above this post. I have to admit that this is a really good looking game and I wouldn’t be surprised that it would be the best game of 2012. But we will just have to wait and see about that.
