Consoles in the lead to Peace
Metal Gear's never been shy about having an anti-nuclear message (despite arguably glorifying most other types of military violence), but for the most part, the series has put making the world a nuke-free place out of the han...
The sweet taste of victory!
[Update: The stream is over, but you can watch it here and here.]
Get ready, people! After weeks upon weeks of exploration and getting killed by traps, I'm finally close to uncovering La-Mulana's final mystery. Sure, I s...
Hope you like Sasha and Jean!
Hello, Japanator readers! It's time for us to take a look at the next three episodes of the chibified adventures of the Attack on Titan gang. What adventures and junior high troubles will Eren and the gang face this time around? Let's find out!
Catch up on last season!
It's the weekend after Thanksgiving and Black Friday in the United States and I'm sure many of you out there might have taken this chance to catch up on the anime and manga because of the laid back and chill vibe of this holi...
I've been waiting for this!
With Persona 3 The Movie #4: Winter of Rebirth getting ready to hit theaters in Japan next month, Atlus has revealed that they're teaming up with the Nippon Ski Resort Development to bring us not one but two Persona-them...
S-Class Went To The Sea Sea Sea (King)
If last week's installment of One Punch Man was about complicating the world of heroism for our man Saitama - and to an extent, for us as observers of the show's world, this week's episode is all about intensifying it.
In a word, things get real this week.
All part of a good Thanksgiving dinner
You know that the end of November's gonna be amazing when we learn about the new Garo-related announcements. While three projects were announced during this year's Garo: Golden Wolf Thanksgiving festivity, only two of them a...
Chill and Look Back
So it's the holidays for the people in the United States with Thanksgiving followed by the most insane shopping day of the year, Black Friday. So a lot you might by just chillin' in your jammie jams like Umaru pictured above ...
I want that Senketsu scarf
Black Friday is here again along with the insanity but not all deals are to be had in stores since a lot of the anime goods you want aren't in brick and mortar stores these days. One great deal I stumbled upon for the post-turkey day shopping holiday is the OMAKASE subscription goodie box by online video streaming service Viewster.com.
Now, where's my Valkyria Chronicles 3?
I'm not always totally wrong about things, but there are times when I am. It's a good thing that this is one of those times, because Valkyria Chronicles is back, baby! Last week I totally ignored the news that SEGA anno...
One Piece catch up extravaganza!
It's been too long my friends for a salty sailor to be denied the high seas. I've saved One Piece until last since little ever happens week to week. And the five weeks I do decide to leave are the five episodes where three executives are taken down, one of the best heart-wrenching flashbacks in this arc occurs, and Zoro imitates an aeroplane.
Get ready to shed tears of joy
As the single for Kamen Rider Ghost's full opening gets ready to hit Japan on December, the full music video for Kishidan's latest song, "We Think, Therefore We Are," has materialized in front of us. Of course, the tune...
From reading posts by anime fans whenever a show has a selection of female characters (often attractive) one of them will be selected as best. This is an entirely opinionated but I think the most common favourite in the ...
That Feel When No One Knows You
The last couple of weeks of One Punch Man have delivered a couple of big hits, and neither courtesy of the titular "man" himself, Saitama.
One hit is more psychological/philosophical than anything else, and the second is literal in a way that befits a show as straightforward as to have a title like One Punch Man.
Class is now in session
[Update: The stream is over, but you can watch it here.]
Back when I decided to play La-Mulana, I didn't expect this game to teach us how tiny idol statues give birth to children. Towards the end of last week's segment, I was...
Time to Smile
This weekend, we take a look at some anime endings from anime that made me happy. These anime made me happy in different ways, some are funny while some just provide you with pure joy. I hope you find these endings to enterta...

A look at the small con in Maine

There's something uplifting about hugging an animal-- especially if they're your pet. In a way, it can help relieve one's stress from a rough day at work, which is one of the best things about taking care of a dog, cat, or a...
We All Could Use A Smile This Week
So I thought we could all use a bit of a different direction this week, not that forgetting any of the bad stuff that happened recently is denying that it happened or making light of the tragedy. Each person has their way of ...
It's a Literature Club, after all
In last season's anime, I had covered The Disappearance of Nagato Yuki-chan dub for this site. The anime has now finished broadcasting and I've finished recapping, but I'm not quite done talking about it. I had noticed t...
