All About the New Netflix Anime Series Glitter Force

What is Glitter Force About?

Glitter Force is the English language version of the anime (Japanese cartoon) series, Smile Pretty Cure. It follows the adventures of a group of five young girls who are given the ability to transform into magical superheroes by a mysterious and cute little critter called, Candy.

Together, the girls try to balance home and school responsibilities while trying to save the world from evil fairy tale villains and rescue the queen of the magical kingdom, Jubiland, Queen Euphoria.

Who are the Main Characters in Glitter Force?

The Glitter Force anime series revolves around five girls who make up the superhero team, Glitter Force, and their mascots Candy and Pop.

How Many Episodes of Glitter Force are There?

The final 20 episodes (Season Two) are expected to premiere on Netflix sometime during 2016.

Eight of the 48 Smile Pretty Cure episodes will not be adapted into English (hence the 40 episodes of Glitter Force) however the missing episodes announced so far (Japanese episodes 10, 17, and 19) are basic filler episodes which contributed very little to the overall storyline and were likely removed to improve the series’ pacing.

Is there a Glitter Force Movie?

There is an animated feature film that was released in cinemas in Japan called, Smile PreCure! The Movie: Big Mismatch in a Picture Book! but there have been no official announcements regarding an English release yet. If Glitter Force proves popular on Netflix though, a future release is extremely likely.

Who Sings the Songs in Glitter Force?

The new English songs in the Glitter Force anime series are performed by the North American-based pop group, Blush which consists of five members from Japan, South Korea, the Philipines, India, and Hong Kong.

Who Should Watch Glitter Force?

Glitter Force is a super accessible anime series that will appeal to fans of My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic and the original 90s Sailor Moon.

There are no sexual themes or course language and while the fight scenes consist of lots of punches, kicks, and magical blasts, there is never any blood or gore and the fights never get too intense. Glitter Force is suitable for any age group and may be watched by children unsupervised. Need more convincing? Here are five reasons why everyone should be watching Glitter Force.

Where Can I Watch Glitter Force?

Glitter Force is available in most non-Asian regions via the popular streaming service, Netflix. There have been no announcements regarding TV broadcasts at this stage.

Are there Glitter Force DVDs and Blu-rays?

There have been no announcements regarding official Glitter Force DVDs or Blu-rays however since several Netflix shows have been given home releases in the past, a physical release of Glitter Force for fans to buy is a possibility if the series is popular enough.

Where to Watch Naruto Anime Episodes Online for Free

Naruto, its sequel anime series Naruto Shippuden, and their numerous movies have all been some of the most popular anime viewed by fans old and young. The Naruto franchise’s blend of comedy, action, and drama consistently draws fans back to watch the latest anime episode or movie when it airs on TV and its DVD releases are on many anime fans’ pull list.

While the Naruto and Naruto Shippuden DVDs contain a generous amount of anime episodes per release, more and more people are discovering the convenience of legal online streaming sites that allow them to enjoy their favorite anime for a much cheaper price while still supporting the original artists and companies that produce it.

The best places to watch Naruto anime episodes online right now are Crunchyroll, Neon Alley, AnimeLab, and Hulu. All of these services feature most, if not all, of the Naruto and Naruto Shippuden anime episodes in their original Japanese audio with English subtitles while each has a significant number of episodes in the official English audio. The Naruto and Naruto Shippuden anime movies are a bit trickier to track down with most streaming services offering them on a rotational basis.

The Naruto and Naruto Shippuden anime series and movies are also available to purchase to keep in digital format via online movie stores such as iTunes and Xbox Video (or Windows 10’s Movies & TV/Films & TV app).

Buying episodes and movies digitally may cost more than streaming but also provides the added benefit of being able to download the media onto a device for viewing later when offline.

Downloading an episode or movie can also provide a higher quality viewing experience for those on low speed internet connections as, once downloaded, the media will be available in full HD while streaming content on a slow internet connection can often cause the image resolution to decrease and even pause during playback to buffer the data.

5 Best Magical Girl Anime Series for Beginners

5 Best Magical Girl Anime Series for Beginners

Cue the theme music and transformation sequence, it’s time to power-up magical girl style. Entering the world of anime is a little like putting a kid in a candy store; there’s so much to take in that it’s hard to know where to start. Branching off into a world of high school romances and kick-butt heroines, there is a lot to offer newcomers itching to begin their journey in a candy land filled with enchanted objects and fantastical stories.

All beginners needs to start somewhere, so in no particular order, here are five magical girl anime that should be on every fan’s radar.

Shugo Chara

Everyone hesitates sometimes and shies away from their full potential, but there’s that little voice inside that encourages people to keep trying. In Shugo Chara that little voice comes in the form of Guardian Characters, who are born from a person’s would-be self. Focusing on strengthening self-esteem and building character, Shugo Chara takes viewers through the trials and tribulations of a group of young students trying their best to take things one day at a time while on the path to growing up. With a successful run of three seasons from 2007 to 2010, this series will help new fans test the waters of the magical girl world and have them splashing around in no time

Princess Tutu

Need a little something to keep you on your toes? Don’t be fooled by the title, Princess Tutu is not your run-of-the-mill storyline. This anime is a philosophical endeavor that tackles the notions of freedom and destiny, and all while incorporating ballet sequences that are metaphorical stand-ins for overcoming personal conflict. Bestowed with a pendant that can transform her from a duck into a girl, Princess Tutu is tasked with finding the broken pieces of a prince’s heart so that he can regain his memories and emotions. Through its unique delivery, the story captivates viewers from the very first episode. Complete with humor, artistry and concept-heavy writing, this is a must-see series that will not disappoint.

Puella Magi Madoka Magica

Breaking the walls of convention, Puella Magi Madoka Magica challenges every preconceived idea of what a magical girl is.

Paired with the cheerful character designs, everything seems to point toward the typical girl-turned-superhero structure when Madoka Kaname is presented with the opportunity to become a witch hunter in the first episode. A handful of episodes later however, it becomes evident that all is not what it seems and that Madoka Magica isn’t the cute, family friendly series it looks like on the Blu-ray cover.

Not intended for children, this particular anime is geared toward a 16+ audience interested in darker themes, where the lines between good and evil are blurred and the realities of despair are amplified.

• Cardcaptor Sakura

As one of the most successful series coming out of the late ‘90s, Cardcaptor Sakura has managed to maintain its popularity more than a decade later.

Following the eventful life of young Sakura Avalon, the show starts off by depicting her as an ordinary 10-year-old that has a school-girl crush and is teased by her older brother, Tori. Things take an unexpected turn for Sakura when she accidentally releases a set of magical Clow Cards that she is subsequently instructed to recover, thus becoming a Cardcaptor. This beginner-friendly series will introduce viewers to the classic elements of transformations, magic and sidekicks that have become staples in the magical girl genre.

Cardcaptor Sakura has had three anime series and two anime movies and was released in English speaking countries as Card Captors.

• Sailor Moon

This wouldn’t be much of a magical girl list without the inclusion of the hit anime series, Sailor Moon.

A pioneer of the magical girl genre, Sailor Moon set the standards for what it meant to be a super-powered heroine fighting against the forces of evil while trying to lead a normal life.

Based around the intertwined destinies of the Sailor Guardians (reincarnated super heroines from a time long ago), viewers see them strive toward their hopes of fulfilling life-long dreams and a peaceful future for both themselves and the entire planet. The popularity of today’s magical girls anime series would not have the same status of stardom without these cosmic women laying down the groundwork and introducing an entire generation to female-centered super hero stories.

It’s a perfect time to get in on the action, with the newest reboot of the series, Sailor Moon Crystal, currently out and available to view on several online streaming services for free!

The original Sailor Moon anime ran for 200 episodes and had three movies and several animated specials. There was also a popular live action Sailor Moon TV series and numerous Sailor Moon musical performances.

Top 10 Pokemon Anime Seasons

10.  Pokemon Season 7: Advanced Challenge

Continuing their journey in the Hoenn region, Ash, May, Max and Brock had a few adventures in Advanced Challenge but none of which really stood out as that memorable. None, except for the classic two parter that saw the return of Misty and Togepi; The Princess and the Togepi and A Togepi Mirage!.

9.  Pokemon Season 13: Pokemon Diamond and Pearl Sinnoh League Victors

Pokemon Diamond and Pearl Sinnoh League Victors was the final season set within the Sinnoh region and featured the long-awaited Sinnoh League. Ash’s Pokemon Battles in the tournament were superbly animated and the inclusion of Legendary Pokemon, Latios and Darkrai really surprised fans.

8.  Pokemon Season 4: Johto League Champions

The second season set in the fan-favorite Johto region, Johto League Champions benefitted greatly from the region’s characters and Pokemon. Unfortunately very few of the episodes really stood out enough which prevented it from ranking higher.

7.  Pokemon Season 3: The Johto Journeys

The first seasons set in a new region normally feature the best episodes. The writers seem more energised with the new setting and soft reboot and almost everything that happens this early on in a region is major plot development, something fans of the show desperately want to see. The Johto Journeys has all of this in addition to the classic episode, Charizard’s Burning Ambition which sees the departure of Charizard which boosts the season as a whole to greater heights and a higher ranking

6.  Pokemon Season 2: Adventures in the Orange Islands

A lot of Pokemon fans dislike Adventures in the Orange Islands with a passion but I like it so much that it’s actually my sixth favorite season!

The season’s strength is in its originality and willingness to be different from the previous story arcs. Adventures in the Orange Islands stands apart from a lot of the other seasons by not really being set in a region. It’s set in an area called The Orange Islands. It provides a great change of scenery and storyline with Ash not training for a Pokemon League but instead being on a serious mission for Professor Oak with Misty to deliver a mysterious Poke Ball to him.

Unlike most of the other seasons, the Orange Islands arc stands completely on its own and thus is a lot easier to rewatch as opposed to the Johto and Sinnoh arcs which span several seasons

5.  Pokemon Season 6: Advanced

While The Johto Journeys benefitted from the new creativity a new region brings, Pokemon Advanced also benefitted and then some.

The sixth season of the Pokemon anime saw a total refresh of the visual style of the show. The character designs were now much more modern and the animation smoother. The writing also seemed to have more energy, making this season one of the tighest yet

4.  Pokemon Season 14: Pokemon Black and White

The 14th season of the Pokemon anime, Pokemon Black and White once again saw a major refresh in the look and feel of the show. Ash’s character design looked significantly different than it did way back in the first season and the show itself now looked more stylised.

This season also broke new ground for the anime. While previous journeys to new regions would see a mix of new and old Pokemon, when Ash and Pikachu travelled to Unova, with the exception of Pikachu and Meowth, every Pokemon they encountered was an Unova native. Even Officer Jenny and Nurse Joy got a new look!

This “Only New Pokemon” rule forced the writers to think outside the box. They could no longer rely on Pokemon and characters established in the previous 13 seasons. This was unchartered territory for Ash and for the viewer as well

3.  Pokemon Season 17: Pokemon the Series XY

With such a big change in style in Season 14, not many fans were expecting another change when Ash moved to the Kalos region. Pokemon the Series XY really upped the ante with not only new character models but an entire new way for presenting Gym Battles with new computer generated imagery and sound effects. The animation in this season took another leap forward in quality but unlike previous seasons which normally start off with impressive animation and quickly lower to average after a few episodes, the animation quality in XY maintains a high standard throughout. The plotting and overall storylines are pretty good too!

2.  Pokemon Season 5: Master Quest

 Master Quest may seem like a strange choice for the second best season of the Pokemon anime, but let me tell you why; good quality episodes.

Very few seasons featured the sheer number of quality episodes compared to Master Quest. In one season we get several Lugia episodes, an origin story for the mysterious Ho-oh, a fantastic Evee episode, a time travel story, Ash and Pikachu swapping bodies, a real encounter with a real Entei, an episode featuring an Unown and a full Pokemon League!

1.  Pokemon Season 1: Indigo League

…because the best Pokemon season was the first one which has since been rebranded as Indigo League after the Kanto region’s Pokemon League.

This season of the anime is pure classic anime. It’s fun, features so many memorable supporting characters that fans still celebrate to this day despite most of them only appearing in a single episode. It’s also the only season of the anime to feature the entirety of Ash’s journey to a Pokemon League within one season and without question, features the best theme song out of any season.

If you could only watch one season of the Pokemon anime, you should watch this one. If you could watch them all, you should watch this one again, and again… and again. It’s that good and that’s why it’s the very best.

Pikachu, Hello Kitty, Power Rangers in the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade

The 88th Annual Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade looks to be one of the biggest yet with its massive selection of character balloons based on children’s cartoons ranging from classics such as The Smurfs, Thomas the Tank Engine, Snoopy and Spider-man to modern hits like Adventure Time with Finn & Jake, Skylanders and Spongebob Squarepants.

Not all of them will be Western creations though. Several of the giant balloons will be based on popular Japanese series!

Celebrating 20 years of the Mighty Morphin Power Rangers franchise, the legendary Red Ranger will be featured in the form of his own balloon which will be one of the biggest in the parade, measuring over 55 feet tall!

Also celebrating an anniversary, the Hello Kitty character will be present and looking surprisingly youthful for a 40 year old cat (even though she isn’t a cat at all).

Finally, the popular Pokemon, Pikachu will be returning for a third year with an all new balloon showcasing the electric-mouse Pokemon holding a cute little snowman. With the release of Pokemon Alpha Sapphire and Pokemon Omega Ruby, this balloon is sure to be a hit with young and mature gamers alike.

Anime Series that Should be Live Action Netflix Series

A Live Action Naruto TV Series

With the numerous Marvel Netflix series beginning soon and even a potential live action Zelda Netflix television series in the works, let’s take a look at some anime series that would make awesome transitions from animation to a live action TV show.

These series may be a hard sell to most mainstream channels but would be great additions to Netflix’s growing original program lineup.

The first anime that deserves the live action treatment is the popular anime series, Naruto.

Based on Masashi Kishimoto”s hit manga (Japanese comic book) of the same name, Naruto is both a coming of age story as well as a martial arts epic with a healthy dose of human drama and comedy thrown in to really keep things interesting.

Naruto’s bizarre world, which is a blend of modern day cities and small ninja villages lends itself well to a TV budget with the option to set entire episodes within the modern city locations and while the cast of characters is absolutely huge in the anime, the majority could be cut to focus more on the main trio of characters; Naruto, Sasuke and Sakura with very little impact on the overall plot.

The long-running anime may have recently finished with the animated movie, The Last: Naruto The Movie but interest in the franchise remains strong with several media projects in the works in addition to a live action Naruto rock musical (see image) which proves just how cool a live action Naruto can look if done right.

A Live Action Ghost in the Shell TV Series

Masamune Shirow’s famous manga (Japanese comic book) series, Ghost in the Shell has been adapted several times into animation and the brand remains one of the most respected Japanese anime properties in the industry due to each version’s financial success and the artistic integrity of the original 90s anime film.

With a new Japanese Ghost in the Shell anime film due for release in 2015 and a Western live action one starring Scarlett Johansson due in 2017, Ghost in the Shell’s popularity is only going to grow which makes now the perfect time to start developing a live action Ghost in the Shell TV series.

The series’ mature police drama style of storytelling makes it a perfect match for the episodic nature of a live action television series. The futuristic setting the series takes place in may sound intimidating at first but recent TV shows like Almost Human and Fringe have proven how possible it is to create a believable futuristic world on a limited TV budget.

A Live Action Sailor Moon TV Series

Thanks to the hit anime series in the 90s, Sailor Moon is now one of the most recognisable Japanese characters on the planet. Its story of a teenage girl who discovers she’s a reincarnated princess and a cosmic superhero is a concept that lends itself to numerous mediums and would be great to see as a live action TV series on Netflix.

Sailor Moon did actually get a live action TV show that was never released outside of Japan and it was actually quite good (if you survived the first ten or so super cheesy episodes) but for a Western interpretation we’d need something that’s a little less Power Rangers and more The Vampire Diaries with a superhero twist.

The Sailor Moon manga (Japanese comic book) has some great storylines and characters that could be used for a live action TV show, however the basic premise and visuals of the series are so strong that it would be exciting to see a fresh take on the concept with a new story and even new characters becoming these iconic superheroes. Sailor Moon fans can only watch the Sailor Scouts (or Guardians) kick Queen Beryl’s butt so many times. Why not give the transformation powers to a new teenage girl and have her face an all-new baddie?

The possibilities for a live action Sailor Moon TV series are endless and if done right, could reinvigorate the Female Superhero genre that’s pretty much been dead since Birds of Prey crashed and burned over a decade ago.

A Live Action Bleach TV Series

Fans of the Bleach anime and manga series have been yearning for a live action adaption of the supernatural series for years. A group of good looking, misfit high schoolers who get wrapped up in saving innocent souls and a larger supernatural conspiracy is a very strong concept for a live action TV show and one that has a very broad appeal if marketed correctly.

While Warner Bros has bought the rights and been developing a live action Bleach movie, it’s been years since anyone has heard anything about its progress let alone a release date.

If the Bleach movie ends up getting stuck in development hell (if it isn’t already), a TV series could be a great compromise and possibly even more successful.

Fitting such a long-running series such as Bleach into a 2 hour movie can be difficult but spreading a story arc or two out over the course of a TV season? Much more practical and potentially a smarter move financially.

A Live Action Madoka Magica TV Series

Don’t let the cute character designs fool you. Madoka Magica is a super complex series that deals with aliens, super powers, time travel, friendship and life lessons in a style that’s both heartbreaking and mindbending.

Increase the age of the characters by a few years and you’ve got a ready made concept that’s ripe for a live action adaption. Too edgy for mainstream channels, Madoka Magica would thrive on Netflix in a self-contained 8 to 10 episode series with the potential for further seasons shifting focus to entirely new characters dealing with the same issues around the world.

The 6 Most Popular Anime Series that Everyone Is Watching

1.  Naruto Shippuden

Starting way back in 2002, this juggernaught of an anime franchise has recently begun to wind down with an epic finale to its second series, Naruto Shippuden in the movie, The Last: Naruto the Movie. Just because there’s no regular Naruto anime series now, doesn’t mean its completely finished though. A special movie focusing on several characters’ future children called, Boruto: Naruto the Movie, came out in 2015 and there’s a good possibility that more films and specials may be on the way.

If martial arts, magic and demons are your thing, this humorous, dramatic and action packed series may be for you.

2.  One Piece

Similar to Naruto, One Piece features a blend of action and story with a slightly more generous helping of comedy. Running continuously since its launch in 1999 and now with well over 600 anime episodes (find out how to watch all these episode for free here!) and several One Piece movies, this anime about a crazy group of pirates has attracted a loyal fan base that has continued to grow more and more every year.

3.  Fairy Tail

Ever wondered what would happen if J.K. Rowling or Enid Blyton ever wrote an anime? The result would be something like Fairy Tail (not Fairy Tale) which follows an eclectic band of magic wielding guild members on mystical adventures full of monsters, evil wizards and revelations both world-shaking and personal.

The animation may not be the best Japanese animation has to offer but Fairy Tail more than makes up for it with its contagious positive energy and massive supporting cast of original characters.

4.  Pokemon

While designed for the younger anime fan, the Pokemon anime continues to be popular with Pokemon fans of all ages, many of whom have been watching since its launch in the late 90s and others who are just discovering it for the first time.

Due to the soft reboot the series performs every few years where all but the main characters of Ash and Pikachu are replaced as they move to a new region (read more about the different seasons and regions here), the Pokemon anime is very easy to jump into and enjoy from almost any episode and the numerous Pokemon movies require very little knowledge before diving in.

5.  Dragon Ball Z

Even though this long running classic series had finished several years ago, Dragon Ball Z continues to be one of the most popular anime series regardless of generation.

Featuring a mix of martial arts, Chinese culture, comedy, and science fiction, Dragon Ball Z is a great series for almost any age group and with the recent re-release of the series on Blu-ray (check out my review of the first set here) and a brand new anime series called, Dragon Ball Super, now is a great time to dive in.

6.  Sailor Moon Crystal

Definitely one of the most famous Japanese animated series that has affected popular culture all over the world, Sailor Moon is back with a completely new anime series that follows the original Sailor Moon manga a lot more closely than the 90s anime which took quite a few creative liberties with the source material.

The new series, Pretty Guardian Sailor Moon Crystal (or Sailor Moon Crystal for short) is constantly one of the most watched TV shows on online streaming services such as Hulu and Crunchyroll where it streams for free (find out where and how to watch Sailor Moon Crystal here) and old and new fans are experiencing the classic characters as never before.

Where and When to Watch Dragon Ball Z: Resurrection ‘F

Afer the initial anouncment of the new 2015 Dragon Ball Z film and its tentative title, The Worst Wish in History, the latest entry in the popular Dragon Ball franchise has now been properly revealed with several new images from the film, a new title; Dragon Ball Z: Resurrection ‘F’ and a more detailed plot synopsis (the film’s story will see the return of the fan-favorite Dragon Ball Z villain, Frieza who has been resurrected by the Dragon Balls!).

While the previous film, Dragon Ball Z: Battle of Gods recieved an English dubbed theatrical release in North America, Canada and Australia several months after the Japanese release, Resurrection ‘F’ will be getting a special English subtitled (with original Japanese audio) theatrical screening at the Egyptian Theatre in Los Angeles, California on Saturday, April 11th a whole week before the Japan premiere on the 18th!

Tickets for this one-off screening are unfortunately sold out but FUNimation has confirmed that they will also be releasing their English dubbed version of the film on the big screen sometime in Summer 2015 and that that release would be much wider and very likely to be shown in cinemas in countries outside of the USA such as Canada and Australia (like Battle of Gods).

t’s the news fans have been waiting for! FUNimation Entertainment is proud to announce its distribution of the theatrical, home entertainment, video on demand and broadcast rights to the upcoming Japanese animated feature film Dragon Ball Z: Resurrection ‘F’.

Dragon Ball Z: Resurrection ‘F’ represents the nineteenth feature film in the Dragon Ball series. Series creator Akira Toriyama was directly involved in the film’s production, just as he was in the highly successful Dragon Ball Z: Battle of Gods

Everything You Need to Know About the Fairy Tail Anime

What is the Fairy Tail Anime Series About?

Fairy Tail (not “fairy tale”) is a Japanese cartoon (anime) set in a magical world called, Earth-land where magic is commonplace and mystical beings are well-known to the general population. In this world, many beings with magical abilities form guilds, groups or teams of magical individuals who protect their fellow members, occasionally act as a family, and mostly make money by completing assignments for paying customers.

The series revolves around one of these groups which calls itself the “Fairy Tail Guild”. Throughout the series the guild gets sent on a variety of missions ranging from small and mundane to adventures that could save the entire world. Occasionally individual Fairy Tail Guild members’ are revealed to have a personal connection to a mission which results in secrets being revealed and regular plot twists that shake the group to its core.

Fairy Tail’s fresh blend of action, drama, and comedy has earned itself a large following of fans. Its animation is often criticized for looking rushed but the quality voice actors, in both the Japanese and English versions, and the show’s willingness to not take itself too seriously often overcomes any limitations in production quality that may be present.

Who are the Main Characters in the Fairy Tail Anime?

The Fairy Tail Guild itself comprises of a large number of members, many of which act as recurring supporting characters. For the most part, the series focuses on a small group within this guild; Erza, Gray, Happy, Carla, Lucy, and Natsu with Lucy and Natsu often getting the most screen time and character development.

How Many Seasons of the Fairy Tail Anime are There?

Season One through Four are considered to be Fairy Tail Series One while the fifth season onwards fall within Fairy Tail Series 2. Very few companies or fans use the series labelling when referring to the anime with most simply using the season numbers. Official DVD and Blu-ray releases rarely use the series or season numbering and instead release consecutive DVD and Blu-ray volumes featuring the latest batch of episodes.

How Many Fairy Tail Anime Movies are There?

There has been one Fairy Tail anime movie. Fairy Tail the Movie: Phoenix Priestess was released theatrically in Japan in August 2012 and on Blu-ray and DVD in North America in December the following year.

The movie tells a completely stand-alone story from the anime series and features original character designs by Fairy Tail creator, Hiro Mashima. You can read more about Fairy Tail the Movie: Phoenix Priestess in our full review.

Who Should Watch the Fairy Tail Anime?

While the Fairy Tail anime series’ target demographic in Japan is male and female viewers from around 10 years old through to young adult, the numerous sexual innuendoes and objectification of the female (and male) characters makes it inappropriate for most pre-teens in Western countries. The violence and action isn’t anywhere near the level of more mature series like Attack on Titan but parents and guardians of younger viewers should be aware that death is a common theme in the series, threats of violence are plentiful, and characters do bleed when injured.

Where Can I Watch the Fairy Tail Anime?

The Fairy Tail anime series is available for digital download from a variety of stores such as iTunes and Xbox in addition to numerous streaming services like Netflix, Anime Lab, FUNimation, and Crunchyroll. FUNimation and Crunchyroll often stream the latest Japanese Fairy Tail anime episode with English subtitles within hours of its Japanese television broadcast while the English audio version typically gets a release about a year or so later.

Epic Star Wars Anime Mashup Fan Arts

A Magical Sailor Moon and Star Wars Mashup

One of the more enjoyable aspects of fan art is the level of creativity shown by artists who are passionate about their favorite series. The more memorable creations are the ones that throw caution to the wind and really think outside the box by putting characters in situations they wouldn’t normally find themselves in or even mashing two completely different genres together! Anime is cool. Star Wars is cool.
