We recently ran a scavenger hunt where Fairy Tail fans had to visit specific partner websites, including Anime News Network, Rooster Teeth, the Fairy Tail Podcast, etc. on certain days in order to “find Happy.” So, on the 7th day of our “12 Days of Anime” countdown we are giving you all the “hidden” treasure from our Fairy Tail scavenger hunt! You don’t even need to follow a map or anything!
We’re sneaking another little surprise in the mix for our “12 Days of Anime” countdown–a magical surprise!
If you’ve been paying attention to the Subscription Schedule on our site, you may have noticed that A Certain Magical Index Season 2 has quietly made its way on there. We’re going to lay to rest any speculation and announce right now that we’ve got the home video rights for A Certain Magical Index II AND A Certain Magical Index the Movie.
A Certain Magical Index II will be streaming 2 episodes per week for our Subscribers starting January 14th, and for non subscribers on January 31st. You’ll be able to watch the episodes on http://funimation.com/a-certain-magical-index.
We do not currently have a confirmed released date on these titles; however, as soon as we do we’ll let you all know!
So, what do you think? Are you looking forward to more Index?
It has been announced today, that due to the overwhelming theatrical demand for Evangelion: 3.0 You Can (Not) Redo, the release date for the Blu-ray and DVD, Evangelion: 3.33 You Can (Not) Redo, has been delayed to a TBD date in 2014.
She’s a pink-haired princess. He’s a panty-snatching perv. Sounds like the start of a beautiful relationship! Aesthetica of a Rogue Hero is now available on BD/DVD Combo. Grab this title today and prepare for a rollicking good time tonight!
After saving a fairy-tale kingdom, Akatsuki returns to the real world with his prize—Miu, the busty daughter of the defeated Demon King. It’s one hell of a happy ending until they’re forced to enroll at a school for magic users. There, Akatsuki can’t keep his hands off the girls, Miu’s constantly ballooning measurements make her a walking wardrobe malfunction, and it seems like someone is always plotting against them.
Jam-packed with extreme action and comedy, you’re in for a bouncy ride that’s sure to have you bursting at the seams. Lock your door and close the blinds: Akatsuki and Miu are about to take you places you never knew you wanted to go.

It’s Day 3 of our glorious “12 Days of Anime” countdown, and time for a little something fun! We’re in the process of getting Attack on Titan ready for home video release (you can pre-order it now on Amazon here!); but, while you’re waiting, here are 5 reasons why fans have fallen for this series. WARNING: some of this list contains spoilers, so read at your own risk!
1. The original opening song. “Feuerroter Pfeil und Bogen” by Linked Horizon (That S#!* Goes With Everything!)
As soon as the opening notes hit of the Attack on Titan song, you can’t help but feel the epicness swelling. When the series began simulcasting in the Spring it prompted an internet phenomenon as everyone began parodying that epic song to footage from elsewhere. It became the new Guile’s Theme! What are some of your favorites? Put them in the comments below!
2. The Colossal Titan
With the first appearance (click here to see the episode) of this towering behemoth towards the end of episode one you just know that the story is about to launch into hyperdrive. Every time the Colossal Titan appears, or we see any of the other Titans on screen, they’re just so creepy we can’t help but watch to see what will happen next.
