NDK 2011: Anime news from Bandai!


I recently had the chance to attend Colorado’s big  anime convention, Nan Desu Kan, (NDK,) and managed to get myself into a press seat at the very popular Bandai panel where a representative for the popular anime publisher shared information on upcoming releases and newly acquired titles.
