Hi there and welcome to Freebie Hunters! One of our favorite pastimes in Second Life is scouting the grid for fantastic hunts, sales, events and gifts from all the wonderful creators. We thought we'd share the wealth and showcase some of our finds in this blog, with an emphasis on the goodies available in the many SL hunts and events occurring every month. We do our best to show ALL items from a hunt/event and in the manner the creator intended, but this is not always possible.

An important reminder - All deals posted are subject to the whims of the item creators, and are often offered for a limited time (from hours to months). We do not guarantee the items are still available, and the creators are under no obligation to give anything.

Thank You to all of the creators!

Animania, SL Style!

Well I couldn’t have been more excited about the topic for today’s post. Shadowed and I often have long debates about what the best Anime is. The two biggies, for us at least, are Naruto Shippuden and Bleach. I have watched every episode of both Naruto/Naruto Shippuden and my own opinion is that it is the best one. The fights are epic, the characters are well developed (Go Kakashi!) and there are some really good twists along the way.

Shadowed here. While Thanos’ #1 anime is, and always will be, Naruto Shippuden - my personal boat gets floated by Bleach. I am a total Bleach junkie. I love the stories, I love the characters, I love swords and their abilities. Yes, if you haven’t guessed, those “debates” grow heated at times as we each try to convince the other that “our” anime is best! Bleach is #1!! ~ducks and runs as Thanos takes back the keyboard~

For our Naruto picture, we decided that we would make characters in the theme of the show, not based on any real characters. I am a big fan of the shadowy group of rogue ninja known as the Akatsuki, so we created ninja that might fit in with them (for those in the know, the red floral pattern on our outfits are a dead giveaway, which Shadow loves to point out - why would a stealthy ninja group pick an outfit that says they are in said group?). We have been known to bop around the grid in our Akatsuki gear from time to time, chopping our way to bloody glory!!

Truth be told, I have become a big fan of Bleach as well (although it’s still in second place) and found the Hueco Mundo storyline to be especially cool, with the bonus of maybe the worlds cutest character Nel Tu Odelscwank, and several seasons worth of awesome battles, this truly was a contender for the title of top Anime. Much as we go back and forth, we love them both, and the outfits are from our top characters. Ichigo is ready to throw down in hollow form against the icy cool Ulquiorra, and as fans of the show know this is a top shelf battle for the fate of the world.

So we hope you enjoy our version of Anime SL style and make sure you pick up those cool outfits in the upcoming SL Freebie Hunters hunt and you too can be a member/foe of Soul Society.
