Anime convention AnimeNEXT has announced that its musical guest of honor is the all-girl rock band Stereopony. The band has provided theme songs for multiple anime series, including "Bleach" and "Mobile Suit Gundam 00."
This will be the band's first performance at an American anime convention. However, they have played in the United States before: in 2009, they performed at the South by Southwest music festival in Austin, Texas.
AnimeNEXT is being held in Somerset, New Jersey, on June 18-20. Their concert will be on June 18, and they also plan to hold a panel and autograph sessions.

I am very hesitant to say this is probably my favorite manga
to read. I monitor its releases, occasionally listen to its sound track, and tend to read up on stuff might have over looked. Although I feel no real connection to the characters or villains, and frankly they could all die, respawn new ones and I would probably find it hilariously ironic. But for the sake of it, let’s look at things here. Bleach
is probably only second to Naruto
in terms of popularity, and if anything is Naruto’s PG-13 older brother. I say that because it’s true. Both animes follow the same general path, where it follows the manga up to a certain point, then divulges on some mindless fillers In order to let the manga develop further. They both have a few movies out for themselves, actions figures (or whatever you call them), trading cards, etc. But, I tend to overlook those things, throw them into a box and try keeping them ‘out of sight out of mind’ to concentrate on the main story line.
