Let Risette navigate you through Persona 4: Dancing All Night

I don't usually cotton much to so-called "character trailers" when they pop up in the usual game and anime hype cycle. They're usually nothing more than bits of voiced fluff, when I'd prefer to let the full work speak for it...

Ahoy there Japanator! Ensign Redgrave reporting for duty. I'll be taking over the SS. Annotated Anime for One Piece so I hope you're ready. 

From last we left our heroes, the devious Doflamingo had started the hunger games within Dressrosa with the help of his string string fruit. Manipulating the natural greediness of pirates and criminals, he places bounties on our heroes with the highest amount being given to Usopp due to his God like status. 

Hit the jump to see how the Straw Hats rally to counter to Doflamingo's massacre.

This week's theme is about my personal favorites, but not all of them since I really can't keep track of all of them. Why is it about a few of my favorites? Because it's my birthday today and I do what I want. Honestly, I just didn't want to think up of a theme this week and want to take it a bit easy (not that my job here is hard, it's quite easy).

So this week's selection is about my favorite anime openings that I can think off the top of my head. These openings may have been good though the anime they are featured in may not be as good (unless stated otherwise in the description) but they still are openings that I look up from time to time or even have on my iPod for working out.

Commercials for The Heroic Legend of Arslan are here

It's been quite a long time since I've heard the title, The Heroic Legend of Arslan. I remember there was a pretty sweet OVA series a while back, as well as a very popular series of novels and manga. It looks as though the s...

Sword Art Online II heads to Toonami

Prepare to enter Gun Gale Online! The wildly popular, Sword Art Online will be showing its second season on Toonami next month, starting on March 28th. I was actually really late to the whole SAO game, but now that I've caught up, I can honestly call myself a fan. If you haven't had a chance to watch the first season, you have a little over a month to get caught up!
