Anime Remix-Hetalia at Epcot Center!!!!

April 24, 2013

Hetalia Tumbler

Hello and greetings fellow otaku,

My apologies for not updating last week. With the end of the semester and all it has been a busy time for me, but getting down to business. Now a while ago I was watching the anime series Hetalia in which I got absolutely addicted to the series with all the crazy antics of Italy, Germany, America, Brittan and the rest of the crew. But what would happen if they all ended up at Epcot Center at Walt Disney World? Well you’ll find out the answer to this and many other questions on this edition of Anime Remix.

Edit: Ok, I took that last bit from a classic Nickelodeon game show from the late 80’s called Make The Grade. Look it up on YouTube if your interested in learning more about it. It’s a good show, but getting back on track here.

So the video was created by a fan group known as Anime America Podcast in which I have to say that they did a pretty good job of re-enacting the characters. You have everybody from Italy, Belarus, Switzerland and China just to name a few. It’s kind of cool that they got to hang around Epcot, though there are rules that you cannot wear costumes in Walt Disney World unless you are ten years old or younger. It’s true by the way, Google it if you don’t believe me. 

If you want to see more of there work, click on the link below to go directly on there YouTube page.

And with that, we conclude another edition of Anime Remix. 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 Editorial Replies: Xbox 720-Upgrade or Save Your Money?

April 14, 2013


Hello and greetings fellow otaku,

Well it has been eight years since the Xbox 360 was released here in the U.S. Now the next generation of the Xbox Gaming Console will be coming later on this year. So the question is, should you trade in your old 360 for the 720 or just save your money and get a PS4? Well here is the skinny of what is to come (supposedly) with the new Xbox.

1) Graphics– The new Xbox is going to have less graphics power than the PS4 in which might not be a good thing for hard core gamers. The CPU will have a 1.6 Ghz processing speed in which will be the same as the PS4 but the 8gb’s of memory may be a tough sell for hard core gamers.

2) Blu-Ray: There are also rumors that the new Xbox will contain a Blu-Ray drive but it may not include one at all. Now keep in mind that when the 360 was released back in 2005, they adopted the HD-DVD standard and you all how how well that turned out. So including a Blu-Ray drive might be a smart move for Microsoft to do to compete with Sony which had Blu-Ray in the PS3 from the get go.

And now the downer that might just turn people away,

3) No Support For Used Games: Now this rumor has been going on since the rumors of the 720 have been going around. For those of you who don’t know, if you decide to go sell your used games at your local GameStop for new games, you will not be able to play them with the new system. I feel that this is going to be the hardest sell for those who want to upgrade but they don’t want to shell out 50 to 60 bucks for new games in which might just make the loyal Xbox faithful switch over to the PS4 and hurt the used game industry as a whole.

Now keep in mind that I only covered a few pieces of information about the new Xbox, but these are mostly rumors so these things may or may not appear in the final product when it is released for the 2013 holiday shopping season. So stay with AFC for more info on the Xbox 720 as it develops. 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 First Looks: Spring Anime Season 2013 Conclusion (Sparrow’s Hotel)

April 7, 2013

Sparrow Hotel

Hello and greetings fellow otaku,

Well here we are at the conclusion of our spring anime preview and I have to say that I managed to save the best for last. And believe me, when I first saw the preview image of this series, I knew that this is one that I will definitely be watching. So what is the series that I am talking about, I am talking about a dark anime that will send shivers or maybe some laughs your way know as Sparrow’s Hotel.

What Is This Series About?

The story revolves around Satou Sayuri, a young lady who comes to the Sparrow’s Hotel to interview for an open position in which she lists on her resume “Large Brest’s” and “Assassination” on her resume in which captures the attention of the manager Shiokawa Tamaki and is hired for the special taskforce and as a guard. However this brings more attention to the guests who stop in to stay for the night in which they see a somewhat of a middle schooler as the manager and his bodyguard as the front desk staff.

Why Should You Watch This Series?

So why should you watch this series, well I have to say that a young lady like Satou who has the skills of an assassin and the good looks to go with it, I wouldn’t be surprised to see her working the front desk at a hotel. And with the clientele that comes into the place, I can see why. Overall I feel that this is going to be on my top ten best new anime series for 2013.

And with that, this concludes our spring anime preview. Now there are tons of more series that are coming out that we would feature, but if you want to see what else is coming out, click on the link below and check out the other series that you may be interested in.

Afc First Looks-Spring Anime Season 2013 Pt.2 (Devil Survivor 2)

April 3, 2013


Hello and greetings fellow otaku,

Well as promised we are continuing our look at the new anime series for spring 2013 with another anime series based off a video game called Shin Megami Tensei: Devil Survivor 2 the Animation. 

Now for those of you may remember from a little over a year ago, Atlus the company who created popular game series as Persona and Devil Survivor released Persona 4 The Animation with mixed results. So when it was announced that they were diving into anime again, I was a bit hesitant but just take a look at the background of this series and you might just have a change of heart.

The story revolves around the characters know as the protagonist, his friend Daichi and there other friend Lo coming back from a mock entrance exam in which they receive a mysterious e-mail from a website known as Nicea which forecasts a persons death or a natural disaster in which they witness themselves in a video being killed in a subway accident. However they manage to survive the accident from a avatar from the site in which in turn become Devil Summoners to protect others from this same fate.

Why Should You Watch This

So why should you watch this series, well Atlus is getting back into the anime game again and hopefully this will get better reception than Persona 4 the Animation. Granted it was a good series but with the popularity of this game in Japan and in interesting story line to go with it, I see it being a major hit for hardcore anime fans.

So there is another preview in the books, and we got more coming 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.

So through this week, I am going to highlight some of the series that might just be worth your time. I know they will be for me.

So lets begin our look at the spring anime season by looking at a series that takes place in 17th century Japan in which big brother plays a major role in everyday life in the series called Mushibugyou.

So what is this series about you ask? Well the series revolves around the Edo Era in Japan in the 1700’s in which the government requests black boxes installed to have the commoners submit there thoughts. However a new magistrate known as the Mushibugyou is created to protect the citizens from harm.

Why You Should Watch

So why should you watch this series, well for one reason it is a series revolving the Edo period and with a cast of characters with different fighting styles, what else is there to mention. Well Ok , I know that it’s not much to go on but I predict after watching one episode of this series you will be hooked.

Now keep in mind that this is only one series that we will be highlighting this week, there is plenty more to come so stay with AFC for more. 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.
