Viz Anime Launches

Viz has launched an anime streaming site,, with links to episodes of 11 series, including Naruto, Inuyasha, Honey and Clover, Death Note, The Prince of Tennis, and Bleach. Some of my favorite manga have video adaptations here, like Nana and Hikaru no Go. Free video, what could be better?

    I admit my preference for actually holding the book in my hands,
    but if online is the only way, then..

    Your thoughts, please..

    Personally, I still haven’t clicked with anime — I just read manga, and that in book form.

    Sorry the ad selector is too sensitive for you. :)
