ABOUT ANIME FANS GIVE BACK TO JAPAN - Anime Fans Give Back to Japan was started by The One Piece Podcast and a conglomeration of many other podcasts including Konoha Corner, the SSAA Podcast, and That Anime Show in an effort to bring together the anime community to help victims of the earthquakes and tsunami in Japan. We have posted a video that we hope will spread awareness for this event.

Haunted Flower will also be matching our donations up to $5,000 during the 24 hour marathon this Saturday through Sunday for those who donate and join their Facebook page.
