Anamanaguchi


Relatively unheard of, even in their home town of New York City, the release of Scott Pilgrim vs. The World: The Game garnered the band a cult following of thousands of people with robot ears: Anamanaguchi skyrocketed in popularity.

A chiptune band, Anamanaguchi unleashes their fast-paced, upbeat, 8bit style rock through synthesizers made out of a hacked NES console and Game Boy. Perhaps it's the nostalgic value of the beeps and boops that keep us coming back for more, calling us back to the days of sitting on our living room floor with a 15 inch television. 

Or maybe they just rock.

  9. i have the game on live. brilliant way to kill time. although the levelling up business is a bit annoying and the final boss is so obviously meant to be taken on with more then one person
