STAGE 45: Anime/Manga

Video games inspired by anime and manga have been around for quite a long time.

A manga series becoming so popular that an anime series results from it, only to have it made onto a video game seems to be the next logical step.

Why not? I mean Alot of anime is filled with over-the-top action and unique characters that the end result does lend well to a video game adaptation.

So with that, this STAGE of the retro VGM revival
hour is dedicated to video games based on a manga/anime series.
