Joking aside, we’re here, with another dose of notable news and general fun stuff to start the week.
Seid ihr das Essen? Nein, wir sind der Jaeger It’s been over a year since Attack on Titan first breached the walls of the gaming world with Attack on Titan: The Last Wings of Mankind.

It looks like the Survey Corps are ready to land in the gaming realm once more. Capcom announced that they’re working on an arcade game based on the franchise.

Akame ga Kill’s getting dubbed! Or is it? At some point last week, there was hype. Sentai will be dubbng Akame ga Kill! It seemed too good to be true at the time!
Well, maybe it is. Otaku Review reached out to the folks at Sentai, and confirm that there’s no announcement of a dub. If the show’s getting an English track, it’ll be revealed through the usual channels.
What’s Vegas without a bit of music? A few weeks ago, Otakon Vegas hit, much to the delight of anime fans. At the same time, Lantis made a splash in Sin City with the Lantis Anisong Festival. A number of huge acts made appearances, from JAM Project to Hatsune Miku. Anime Diet was on-scene, and gave a write-up of the event.

A bit of puzzler fun! Who doesn’t appreciate a good puzzle? The folks at Mainchi Anime Yume put together a series of anime-themed logic puzzles.
Sailor Says…! Anyone who’s seen the old Sailor Moon dub undoubtedly remembers the “Sailor Moon Says” segments. They were hokey, but these bits were as much of the experience as the actual show itself. Somebody’s gone ahead and edited together over 17 minutes of these segments, which were posted to YouTube.
