The arrival of Hetalia: The World Twinkle (Season 6) on DVD got us wondering how do other countries really celebrate Halloween, October 31st. So we decided to do a bit of research to see how the world celebrates the holiday!

The Simpsons’ annual “Treehouse of Horror” aired its 25th installment this past weekend and featured some pretty cool iterations of the cast. From Despicable Me to Archer, various well-known forms of the Simpsons family took to the screen — but one scene in particular grabbed the attention of anime fans everywhere:
The Simpsons family paid serious tribute to popular anime with Homer as Zoro from One Piece, Marge as Rangiku from Bleach, Bart as Naruto, Lisa as Mikasa from Attack on Titan, Maggie as Pikachu from Pokémon and even Santa’s Little Helper played a part as Haku from Spirited Away!

You are cordially invited to join us for a High School DxD New Halloween party! That’s right, FUNimation is celebrating the upcoming release of this sexy show, and we want you to join the fun! See details below:
Location: Simmer (723 W. Main Street, Coppell, TX 75019)
Date: October 21st, 2014
Time: 9pm – 12 midnight
Due to the mature content of this show, this party will be 18+ only. So, definitely need to leave the kiddos at home for this one. We’ll have food, games, and a cash bar will be available. Guests are encouraged to dress up to participate in our costume contest! (Don’t worry, you don’t have to dress as a character from the show to enter).
The sequel to High School DxD is HERE!
Issei Hyodo is back with all of his voluptuous friends only this time he has more power than ever before. With the Excalibur swords and the Archangel Michael joining him in battle against the deadliest of foes yet, only time will tell if the Occult Research Club continues to thrive or if new leadership is needed to usher in a new magical era.

Halloween is almost here, but Saya’s already back for revenge. This has been a banner year for horror in anime, so we decided to get an early start giving the terror lovers, costume fanatics, and party animals among you a whole heck of a lot to watch! Every Friday until Halloween we’re going to deliver up a series or movie to enjoy during the weekend as we start ramping up to fright night!
We’ve been very excited about the BLOOD-C TV series winning Best Animation in the 2013 Reaper Awards, especially because we’ve just released the film that finishes off the series: BLOOD-C: The Last Dark. Production I.G has brought their A-game to this gorgeous partnership with manga superstars CLAMP, and if you only watched the first episode or two of the TV series, we think the movie will shock you…in a good way!
