    I know none of these shows. However, if the game is good, i might buy it. Any online functionailty? Because that’s the only thing that held back my BlazBlue purchase.

      Really not even Sword Art Online?

      • Lester Paredes

        I know it’s got a game coming out soon. Honestly, the last Anime I enjoyed watching was Cowboy Bebop. I’m hoping Sailor Moon Crystal will be good.

        • nonscpo

          Well that sucks, wait does that mean you also haven’t seen Senran Kagura, Dangan Ronpa, and Persona 4G anime?

          • Lester Paredes

            Nope. I don’t get much access to anime these days, just basically what ever is on Netflix. The new One Piece game is renewing some interest, especially after the horrible dub that came out in America many moons ago destroyed any sort of interest I had piqued by the premise. But I’ve honestly stopped watching for a long while. I keep seeing something interesting, I watch a few episodes, see that it’s going no where fast, and move on. The last time I tried to get into a show was Attack on Titan, and that bored me to tears.

    I think this mix of characters is great.

  • Borshay

    Kirito? Taiga? Please get a NA release!
    … Probably have to import it next year at some point >.>

    • nonscpo

      I’d import it if I was you, with that many charachters you just know that their will be licensing issues.

      • Borshay

        I probably will, I say import next year simply because my back log needs clearing lol

        • nonscpo

          Yup as a fellow vita owner I feel your pain, good thing the vita has no games otherwise we’d never clear our backlogs lol.

          • Borshay
