First Anime Episode Free on Xbox Live Marketplace

Anime fans, and more importantly potential Xbox 360 fans, in Japan are being courted once again by Microsoft.

After Microsoft’s Xbox Japan press conference today, the first episode of an anime series called Karas hit the Japanese Xbox Live Marketplace. Like the movie trailers often offered on Live, the video is available in normal definition and 720p high definition. Best of all, the download is free. The only catch is that you have to have an Xbox 360 connected to the internet with a Japanese 360 profile.

Even though this is the first anime episode made available, it won’t be the last. Microsoft says they plan to deliver more DVD quality Anime to the Xbox Live Marketplace in the near future. Of course, we’ll probably have to pay for that.

As an added bonus, a trailer for the Bandai Namco game Zegapain XOR is also on the Japanese Xbox Live Marketplace.
