:anime: Free/Low-Cost Anime Pick of the Month:: Blue Submarine No. 6

Blue Submarine No. 6

Video: Hulu

In the four years of doing "Free/Low-Cost Anime Pick of the Month", I never had the chance of spotlighting the landmark OVA, Blue Submarine No. 6. Not only was it among the earliest anime I had watched in my burgeoning fandom, but it was also the subject of HardDoor's first feature post (spoiler warning)! That's because it was never posted online during that span (perhaps ever, though it may have appeared on Toonami's website before), but all of that changed a couple of months ago, when Bandai posted the anime uncut--and for free--on Hulu!

:boxing: Double The Pain…:: Mayweather vs. Canelo & Garcia vs. Matthysee

2013 has been a bountiful year of good bouts and key match-ups and September 14th plays host to likely its biggest fight night. Boxing's hottest commodity in Saul "Canelo" Alvarez finally gets to meet its biggest money-maker in Floyd Mayweather, Jr in a long-awaited match, and as an added bonus, the not-so-beloved Danny Garcia is set to fight one of the sports most feared fighters in Lucas Matthysee.
