Jump Force open beta
Jump Force open beta

Everybody was anime fightin’! Their fists were fast as subs translatin’! In fact it was a little bit frightening, they ran with their arms behind them Naruto style somethat that rhymes with frightening…Look it’s Friday, lay off. Do you know how difficult it is to butcher classic songs? NO, YOU ONLY THINK OF YOURSELVES!

Anyway, if you were looking to become an anime of the state, good news! Upcoming manga brawler Jump Force has a beta coming out soon, and it’s a pretty hefty one by the sound of things.
