I have not seen the anime, but I will watch it when it comes to G4. I know a lot of people have given the series a thumbs down, but I want to get my opinion in before turning it down myself especially since I read Iron Man comic books.
Like the poster says, expect to see Iron Man goodness in anime form this July!

The first look at the X-Men Anime was recently showcased for us to see: HERE
Marvel.com has recetly put out a couple of more images from the anime to get us pumped up (or less excited). I won't disagree with the fact that Cyclops is looking either to much like a "Pretty Boy" or a girl.
What do you guys think?

February 20 marked the date when  became the first anime series to sell over 500,000 Blu-ray Discs on Oricon's sales chart in Japan. This musical series is personally a favorite of mine when it comes to slice of life stories. 

Anime News Network reported this from Oricon's site: 

It accomplished this feat when the eighth limited first edition Blu-ray volume of the  television anime sequel sold 26,000 copies (rounded to the nearest thousand) during its first five days of sales (February 16-20). The DVD version of the same eighth volume sold3,178 copies.

The current volume also topped Oricon's overall weekly Blu-ray sales chart for the February 14-20 week; it is the second volume in a row and the ninth volume in the  to rank #1. The 's nine #1 Blu-ray Discs ties the previous record; all nine of 's Blu-ray Disc volumes reached #1.

The  television anime and its  sequel have sold a combined total of 520,000 Blu-rays Discs as of February 20.  had surpassed the current #2 series, , in sales in September.

Kudos to K-ON! -- Geo (sora_thekey) long time user of the Whiskey Media Sites, and 24/7geek! -- Follow me on Twitter: @sora_thekey

AMVs are one just one of the many things that tie into the Anime/Manga J-Pop culture. For those of you who don't know, AMV stands for Anime Music Video. If you want to learn more about AMVs I suggest you go and watch Anime Vice's 3-Minute Expert on this. 
 
I spend a lot of time in YouTube and stumble upon a lot of AMVs. Some of them are really horribly edited, others are great. So I decided to use my blog entries to periodically spotlight some. 
 
It's no secret that I love Kingdom Hearts, so I am bound to spotlight a KH-related video first. If you have played the games then you might find this video just as heartwarming as I did. If you haven't played the games, then go play them after watching this video.
