You can now get anime from Microsoft…joy…

From Anime Corporation News

Ghost in the Shell, Noein, Tokko on Xbox Live

Manga Entertainment has announced it has struck a deal with Microsoft to begin distributing its licensed anime episodes for download via the Xbox Live Marketplace.

Manga Entertainment will also be offering the GITS:SAC episodes on Amazon’s Unbox video service.

Ray’s take: I personally hate Microsoft so when I don’t have to use its products I avoid them like the plague. But this is a nice and completely legal way of getting anime online. I do like Amazon a lot for its well-known excellent customer service and other stuff. Sony needs to strike the same type of deals and provide anime for legal downloads for a lot of their products.

I'm a hardcore Anime Fan and I'm proud of it. I know so many things and I've acquired so much knowledge you wouldn't believe. But my love is anime. I've been drifting in this world for so long that I don't even know what an anchor means. I've seen so many shows that I've lost count. The only thing I'm sure of myself is that I care for the lowly and disenfranchised. I hate the rich and powerful and I love what I do, or what I can do. I like anime and I don't mind watching different types of shows. I have experience in different types of Japanese animation. I would be called an "expert" in a bizzaro world. One day, I'd like to start a revolution. I love the US, pizza, beer, sashimi, Chinese food, and steak. But I love freshly baked bread more than a well-aged steak. In reality, if I were born Japanese I'd be a real, hardcore Otaku. I love to love and I can hate strongly. I'm passionate in nature and I don't mind shedding tears.
