A-kon Premiere Schedule
Hetalia: The Beautiful World – Saturday at 12pm in Video 1
They said it couldn’t happen, but they were as wrong as a stack of pancakes in a cage full of bears! The adorable boys of Hetalia are back with some new friends and a super sparkly new look. Not to mention the long-awaited Buon San Valentino OVAs!
What’s more fun than Germany squatting in a dandelion patch? How about the Axis Boys joining the witchcraft club? Or maybe Russia suffering through a traumatic hamster flashback? Any way you slice the spaghetti, every cute boy enjoys a little quality bath time, and Turkey and Greece can’t wait to start splishing and splashing! Fall in love with this new and improved, sparklelicious season of Hetalia as Belgium throws a mouthwatering waffle party, and America shows off his sweet dance moves! We swear you won’t be disappointed – even when Santa Claus goes missing and Canada (who’s that?) tries to replace him with a polar bear! A POLAR BEAR!? Hetalia, you so cray cray. We’ve missed the squee outta ya!
Senran Kagura – Saturday at 8pm in Video 1
From the Dynamic Duo that brought you Ikki Tousen comes a revealing tale of naughty ninjas sucking down sushi rolls and busting up the competition!
Asuka and her friends may look like any other girls at Hanzo Academy, but they’re secretly studying the ancient art of Ninjutsu! While other students do their homework, Asuka and the gang push their beautiful bodies to the breaking point in pursuit of their perfect form. Life is one sexy sparring session after another until a Deviously Demented rival clan of evil ninjas ambushes the Hanzo hotties – and steals their sacred ninja scroll. Faced with their toughest – and most well-rounded – enemies ever, Asuka and her fellow Deadly Divas will have to go further than they’ve ever gone before to prove they’ve mastered the art of full frontal combat!
Whether you like blondes or brunettes; good or evil; big or EXTRA BIG; this series based on the action packed video game proves once and for all that a ninja beat down is the most exhilarating beat down of all!
