Best Anime Show On TV

EASILY the best Anime show currently airing, One Punch Man. Normally I’d rant and rave about the show, but I rather have you go out, find it online and WATCH. You really have to see this show for yourself. Fantastic animation, fluid and smooth, quirky but entertaining story line and action like no other.

Anyways, I lied, here is a reeeeaaally quick breakdown of ONE PUNCH MAN. Just promise as soon as you leave here you check out episode I at the minimum

ONE PUNCH MAN Wiki

The story takes place in the fictional Japanese metropolis of City Z. The world is full of strange monsters that mysteriously appear and cause disasters. Saitama, the protagonist, is an incredibly powerful hero who easily defeats the monsters or other villains with a single punch. However, due to his overwhelming strength, Saitama has become bored with his powers and is constantly trying to find stronger opponents who can fight him.

On his adventures, he meets new friends, enemies, and his own disciple, the cyborg Genos, and joins the Heroes Association in order to gain fame for all of his efforts to defeat evil. Despite defeating many strong monsters that even the Heroes Association’s top members are unable to defeat, Saitama struggles to gain respect. Most people look down on him due to his plain physical appearance, and some accuse him of being a counterfeit hero. Only a small number of individuals recognize his incredible talent and humility towards others.

You know how I like to roll! When I like a show, I have to scour both high and low for any and all interesting pieces of gear, apparel and collectibles specific to the show and ONE PUNCH MAN is no exception. Here are some of the many great graphic tees I came across.

Attack On Titan

Brief on Anime
Anime originates from Japan and is essentially their version of what we in America consider cartoons or animated features. It is often characterized by colorful graphics, vibrant characters and fantastic themes. When we talk about Anime, this could include animated television series, short films and full-length feature films.

Anime has a tremendously, large audience in Japan and recognition throughout the world, and has steadily grown in popularity in the United States in leaps and bounds. You can find instances of Anime influence throughout American culture today, from movies, to toys, to comic book conventions and costume play.

Difference between Anime and Manga
You may of also heard the term ‘Manga.’ The term ‘Manga’ is a Japanese word referring both to comics and cartooning. ‘Manga’ as a term used outside Japan refers specifically to comics originally published in Japan.

Put simply, where Anime is more of the animated-sort, you can equate Manga to comic books and illustrative graphic novels in the U.S. Manga can include work in a broad range of genres: action-adventure, romance, sports and games, historical drama, comedy, science fiction and fantasy, mystery, suspense, detective, horror, sexuality, and business/commerce, among others.

Our pick for one of the more extensive collections available.

Anime Center – (http://www.animecenter.tv/)

Not a bad site. A decent size collection but not as large as say, Anilinkz.

A strong collection of titles plus a nice to be able to search by ‘genre’ rather than just alphabetical order.

My Anime Stream – (http://www.myanimestream.net/)
Not a very large selection.

Anime Sub – (http://www.animesub.tv/)
Very small Anime selection and not a visibly pleasing site.
