High School of the Dead on Anime Network

High School of the Dead Anime Ep 1 Review UPDATED

High School of the Dead on Anime Network

I just finished watching the first episode of High School of the Dead on Anime Network. It was awesome. Sure there were a couple of problems, but the anime looks like it will live up to the bloody awesomeness of the manga. That’s saying a lot. The manga is a top-notch zombie story.

Update: Only the first 2 episodes will be available to registered members. To see the rest of the episodes you’ll have to pay.

Fairy Tail Anime On Crunchyroll?

(Editor’s Note: For those of you unfamiliar with Fairy Tail, the story follows a rough and tumble wizards Guild that seems to have a habit of getting into trouble. They’ll save the day, but with plenty of destruction along the way. The manga art bears a strong resemblance to One Piece)

Heading to NYAF

It’s been a while without an update from me.  Unfortunately things have been busy, but I did want to mention one thing, before it comes and goes without me even saying it.  I’m heading (slightly) south this weekend to go to the NY Anime Festival.

This will be my first “con” experience, and I’m looking forward to it.  Of course, I’ll be sure to take a ton of pictures and give an update on what happened when I get back.  But, if you are going to be there as well send me a note (in the comments or shoot me an e-mail to brandon[at]

More to come next week, after the big event is done.  If you’ve got any questions or suggestions I’m open to that too, just leave a comment and I’ll try to answer it next week.

Following that the regularly scheduled anime updates will continue.

Breaking Bones…When It’s Convenient

Love Hina Again
