"Status coming soon..."


It's one of those announcements that you've been hoping for since the 2005 tech demo. And then last year, that crappy port felt like the nail in the coffin, Square had officially said no to a proper HD remake.

And then...last night, the most glorious of glorious announcements :D Sadly, I doubt we'll see this before 2017, but at least we know it's in development. #1.1.2

As an alternative, I use ZenMate on Chrome and it works great for US (and other) streaming sites. #3

FUNimation's PS4 app was finally released, which means I finally subscribed to All-Access. I've been binge-watching anime for the past three days and didn't realize until today just how much I've missed watching anime consistently! #2

So am I still OK to submit an article or news and post the link on Twitter/FB/G+? I don't want that to be construed as trying to "game" the system...

Also, when is the redesign coming? I simply cannot use these sites on my phone which has really decreased my time spent on them, sadly. #1

The time limit is the main reason I can't get into these games. Takes the fun out of it for me, sadly. Which really frustrates me because these games look like they would be a blast otherwise. #1.1.2

Tiebreakers eh? Have to re-watch some anime you say? Tough job, but someone has to do it :P

Congrats to the winners! Looking forward to the awards.

EDIT: holy crap, I won something!
EDIT 2: regarding contests, and really, site visitation over the past few months; my issue really stems from the fact that the newsboiler sites are not very mobile friendly. I know they have mobile links, but it's hit or (usually) miss when it comes to using them. As s... #1

Is that all that's selling these games nowadays? I've tried at least 2-3 of these and just cannot get into the formula. And it really sucks because I generally love the art direction in these games. #1

I'd be curious to see how many people entered. I hardly visit the site these days. It just looks and functions terribly on my phone. #2.1.1

That good eh? I really liked Tale of Veserpia: The First Strike. Haven't seen anything in the series since. I'll have to give this a try! #1.2

"For all of the questions this year, we're specifically asking about 2014 anime series which have streamed legally online for the first time this year."

I would imagine, as used above, Crunchyroll, Hulu, Netflix, and FUNimation are the primary sites. #1.1

Will hopefully pick this up soon. I've haven't been able to get into a 3DS game in a while but this looks right down my alley :D #1

Just curious, but would it be obvious if anyone is disqualified during the month? I know disagrees don't count against us, but I'm just curious if other restrictions are less obvious?

Can't wait for the Christmas contest this year, I'm bringing my EH game! (Canada joke :D) #1

I definitely don't view it as something negative. I see anime (and manga for that matter) as "escapism" because it allows me/us to enjoy other people and worlds. It's that break from reality that refreshes me.

I view it similarly to books, where we're transported to far away places that even our imaginations couldn't have conjured.

Definitely a positive feeling :) #2.1.1

$12 for shipping to Canada...will have to think about this one. Was all set to pull the trigger up until I saw that. This is one of the many reasons I've gone digital (Kindle) for books lately. #1

I can completely agree that anime actually set unrealistic expectations when I was younger. When I was a teenage back in the early 2000's, anime was really blossoming into this wondering creature we see today. Art was getting better, voice acting was improving, but the stories were really starting to touch upon some heavy themes.

Of those themes was school and relationships. Now, I won't say I had a naive idea of how university and dating were going to be, but I will... #2
