Aoi Sekai no Ch

This manga has already existed for some time, but I didn't hear about it until today. The first episode just aired in Japan today as well. Anyway, this series is based on the video game console wars between Nintendo and Sega back in the 90s, but told in a fantasy setting between a kingdom and an empire. (LOLing at Nintendo being an evil empire.) The main characters are all inspired by the mascots of the SNES and the Genesis. I haven't even watched the episode yet, but I think this is the absolute coolest concept I've ever seen for the premise of a manga/anime. It's such good timing because I've been in a classic gaming mood and have actually been reading up retro games and hardware for the last month or so.

To be perfectly honest, I really could not get into this show.

It felt like a generic fantasy shounen intro with video game references thrown in just for the sake of having video game references.
