Just had this pop up on my dash and initially was kind of stoked about an unexpected bonus for my Gold account, only to download and launch the app. The layout itself is pretty awful and unresponsive, much like the HBO Go one. Unlike HBO Go, though, It hardly has any content. If you view "all titles," it lists 25 things, but most of them are entries for the same property (eg, multiple Robotech series or multiple Macross series), so really it's 18 things.
What's worse is that it's all dubbed. I'm not one of those purists that think all anime should be subtitled and in Japanese, but given the medium it deserves at least the option. Also, of the videos I clicked on, the video quality was very poor, around SD, even for something relatively recent like Gurren Lagen (sp?). I blame Starz, since their Netflix stuff is equally crappy-looking.
Is Manga Entertainment even relevant at all? I remember they put out a bunch of stuff in the 90s, but recently it's been slim pickings for them, I think. I had no idea they were even still in business.
It's all very lame. If they're going to put this app out for a service with such a weak catalog, there's no reason they shouldn't put a Giantbomb app out too. They've put out enough video content to at the very least quintuple what Manga has available.
