Gintama The Fourth

Today's post is the fourth Gintama post on HFG and features more anime artwork.  I still haven't heard any news of the anime coming to America.  Maybe it's too long for a company to consider in this economy.

Tatsunoko vs. Capcom

In the spirit of Marvel vs. Capcom and Capcom vs. SNK comes the new game Tatsunoko vs. Capcom for the Wii.  Set to be released next month, this game pits Capcom characters against characters from Tatsunoko Productions.

The name Tatsunoko might not be familiar to some, but if you're an anime fan, chances are that you've heard of something they've produced.  Their works include Speed Racer, Tekkaman (aka Teknoman), Casshan/Casshern, and Gatchaman, which is better known under the G-Force and Battle of The Planets names.

I like the art style of this game.  I especially like the way the Tatsunoko guys are portrayed.  I'm a big fan of superheroes in tight lycra and well, that's what many of those guys are wearing.  Check out some more art from the game below.

The Incredible Hercules

After posting about the Assault on New Olympus one-shot, I decided to check out more of The Incredible Hercules.  Today's post features scans from various issues of the series.  I'll update this post later tonight with artist information.

More Prince of Tennis

It's time to revisit the guys of Prince of Tennis.  Unlike the previous post, this one focuses more on artwork of single characters or duos.  All the artwork in today's post is from the anime.  I tried to go for a little variety by not featuring many of the Seigaku guys this tiime around.

12 Tender Killers in A Mixed-Up World

12 Tender Killers in A Mixed-Up World is a mobile phone game only available in Japan.  One of the producers of the game is Hideo Kojima of Metal Gear Solid fame.

If the name sounds oddly familiar, it may be because artwork from this game has actually been featured here on HFG twice before.  One pic can be found in the fourth Misfits post while the other is in the spotlight post of the character designer, You Higuri.

BlazBlue is a series of 2D fighting games from the people behind the Guilty Gear series.  You can see the same sense of style and cool character designs in this series even though the two aren't related.  Also, unlike Guilty Gear, this game is in high-definition.

The original game is available in America for both the X360 and the PS3 now with a PSP version and a sequel both likely on the way in 2010.
