As a general guideline, the AP Stylebook says that articles ("a," "an," and "the"), prepositions, and conjunctions are lowercased in news headlines. All other words, like nouns, verbs, and adjectives, are uppercased. That's the standard that ANN has been using for a while now. It's different from news source to news source, though. Some newspapers have decided to capitalize only the first word in the headline and any proper nouns.

Yeah, that's pretty standard for headlines, and it's been that way for quite awhile. Headlines just don't look right without capitalized words.

While I get that it's a contraction of the two names, am I the only one that thinks the name "AniBro" sounds kinda... crappy? Also, I hope they don't end up consolidating some of their shops. Having both Animate and Gamers as options in Japan when I visited was kinda cool.
