It's been eight months since Bandai Entertainment decided to stop its localization of anime and manga titles. According to the news from Robert's Anime Corner Store, Bandai Entertainment is going to close down its distribution on March 1, 2013. However, November 30 is going to be the last day that they are going to ship their anime to retailers, which results in November 15th being the deadline towards making any orders that are related to any anime titles by Bandai Entertainment.
With Bandai announcing the final date that it will be accepting renewal orders, a ton of shows will be going out of print. Granted, there's a chance that some of the properties that Bandai had will be rescued, but it's entirely possible that most of their catalogue will become difficult to acquire after November. So this apparently means an oncoming spike in prices and increased difficulty in getting a couple of shows, so if you’re not one to watch stuff online too often, then might as well try getting DVDs then. Btw, suggestion from the top of my head, Gurren Lagann (Complete Collection, Childhood's End and All The Lights In The Sky Are Stars films), good Anime, it’s a classic XP.
Hmmm I guess I lied about it being short, too bad XP.Happy 5 year anniversary, Hatsune Miku!
I missed to do this last week, but hey, I’m doing it now! On August 31st, 2012, A certain aqua-haired synthetic singer Hatsune Miku celebrates 5 years! For its part in making Miku a thing that matters, NicoNico streamed a six-hour marathon of her many live appearances, including last year's Mikunopolis concert at Anime Expo, and a rerun of last week's "Summer's End 39 Festival". And lots of other goodies, but meh there’s already a good amount in this New’s section, right? XP.AMV section

Now here’s something more for background music when you’re doing something, enjoy! Review cornerRemi, Nobody's Girl: Episode 1: The Singing Contest
The episode starts Remi's mother talking to Remi's little sister that she can't buy her candy since she ate already. While Remi was coming from upstairs, She heard her mother saying that she wishes for new fancy plates other than the old ones.
I'd give this episode 4.2 out of 5 since it was the most boring episode through the series and for the missing detals that it need. They didn't say her father's, mother's, and sister's name and the contest suddenly got held while she wanted fancy plates. If some more details were added, it would’ve been a strong begining episode and got a 4.8 rating out of 5 but it needs more supporting details in pictures too since the village was too simple even for the poor.
Review by LoxaSo September is portrayed as the month most would go back to school, I know some ppl already went back to school or just got to school. Less of a review, more of a recommendation list, but in anticipation of this fall’s videogame line up, starting Next week I’ll post the very first game review for Otaku News, though videogame reviews of any kind, regarding its content, but not it’s country of origin, all game reviews are welcome, so I encourage ppl who might want to, to bring on some game reviews ‘-‘.
Lastly, I ripped this list from Xplay, XD but meh, this is just let ppl know this is a review corner meant for a wider range of things.
So let’s start this list, shall we?Madden NFL 13, multiplatform
Well I’m not in to these types of sports, but this is still a good game for ppl interested in this type of stuff, and for college boys this can probably be a good way to get some friends quick. XPStarCraft II: Wings of Liberty, PC
So multitasking is pretty important for any student, so this can be a required course work XP.Team Fortress 2, PC
So, college boy or any student, guess what? Your probably broke, right? Well that’s alright cuz this classic game is free to play and available on steam! Also it’s fast pace and Hilarious.Dance Central 2, Multiplatform
Not much of a dancer, but this is a good way to get some ladies XD. Come on? There are lots of girls that like to dance, even if they can’t XP, this can be fun and again, high chances of it being a chick magnet!Plague, iOS,
A good germ simulator game and portable, but if you don’t have an ipad a good alternative is Pandemic, a game that can be easily sound online. Character spotlightName:

(well lol, just couldn't help to point this out, a sign of his Awesomeness!!)Powers:
Battle section CONGRATULATIONS!!! PORTGAS D. ACE,
for winning last issue, Now might as well post my opinion of this battle, Ace is fire and Natsu eats fire, but he can’t swallow Ace whole so the best Natsu can eat is the fire Ace throws at him, but of course being made of fire Ace won’t feel a thing, so my opinion would’ve been a tie.
Okay, since a poll can't be added, just post below, who you think will win in a fight! And on the next issue we'll reveal who won!Don Patch (Bobobo bo bo bobo) :
Yamcha (Dragonball) :
Well, lol, as the suggester said, a battle of the idiots!
Thanks for reading ^_^
