Did somebody say Naruto Happy Meal

Ever been hungry for a Naruto burger? Or maybe Chicken McNarutos? Well, ok, maybe those sound like terrible names, but the idea of getting a Naruto Happy Meal sounds pretty awesome! Thankfully, VIZ Media and McDonald’s are partnering up to bring Latin America just that. The Naruto Happy Meal, which has already seen some appearances in Mexico, is now working into Costa Rica, El Salvador, Guatemala, Honduras, Nicaragua, Panama, and other regions, eventually spreading towards Argentina, Brazil, Chile, Columbia, Paraguay, Peru, Uruguay, Venezuela, and beyond. Whatcha get? Collectible Naruto action figures based on the manga graphic novel and anime series, created by Masashi Kishimoto. …in addition to some killer fries, of course 🙂

Dragon Ball: Origins 2 out this summer

Dragon Ball: Origins 2 out this summer

Namco Bandai has announced it is returning to the Origins part of the Nintendo DS Dragon Ball genre with this summer’s Dragon Ball: Origins 2. The sequel to the original will feature stylus-controlled action, but unlike some of Nintendo’s other games (we’re looking at you, Zelda!) you have the option to switch to the more traditional buttons if you’d like. A two-player co-op mode is included, so you wirelessly can pair with a pal to take down the Red Ribbon Army. This Game Republic developed game, also known as Dragon Ball DS 2: Charge! Red Ribbon Army, is based on Akira Toriyama’s popular manga and anime franchise. You have the ability to play as Son Goku, but also Bulma, Krillin, and Yamcha; each with their own abilities and powerups. Take a look at the Japenese trailer

Toei plans for the return of Sailor Moon

SailorMoon is a classic anime adventure, and remains one of the most popular toon series of all time. It has been credited as popularizing the idea of teaming magical girls, revisited in so many other series; PowerPuff Girls, Winx Club, etc. The girl team of Sailor Soldiers or Sailor Scouts can transform into heroines named for the moon and planets (Sailor Moon, Sailor Mercury, Sailor Mars, etc) and are destined to defender a kingdom that once spanned the solar system, using their magical powers to fight evil. Now, Toei Animation is partnering with Backstage to re-launch the anime series in Italy. Mediaset has already acquired the TV rights, ready to air the first season this fall, joining other Toei toons, like Dragon Ball, Saint Seiya, and One Piece.
