Picks of the Week (DVD/Blu-ray)

Air Video adds AirPlay support: now you can watch your anime on your Apple TV on the big screen!

The Apple TV is a decent little media center streaming box. It improves in every way over its predecessor – smaller, lighter, faster, and doesn’t give off over 9000 BTU of heat energy.

With it, you can rent and stream any of the (pretty large) anime collection that’s now available on iTunes, as well as […]

K-ON! Vol.1 DVD and Blu-Ray coming out on April 26, pre-orders open now

What more needs to be said? (insert standard ranty rant about how Haters Gonna Hate, etc.)

Well, OK, I do actually have one comment. I must admit that I’m rather disappointed that Bandai is choosing to dole out K-ON! in segments. This first disk only contains 4 episodes, meaning that it will be split into […]

Crunchyroll app now available for Android devices

If you like the idea of high quality “all you can eat” streaming anime that you can enjoy anytime, anyplace, then in our humble opinion, you can’t beat a Crunchyroll membership. They have a truly awe-inspiring selection of titles, and they actively go after the latest and greatest from Japan. Many series that they feature […]
