Annotated Anime: Captain Earth episode 2 & 3

I can't remember the last time I watched a mech anime with so much nonsensical techno babble. Bones' latest stab at the genre, Captain Earth, seems to have no qualms with throwing out made-up words and leaving them undefined ...

Review: Short Peace: Ranko Tsukigime's Longest Day photo
Review: Short Peace: Ranko Tsukigime's Longest Day
by Chris Walden

As far as bundles go, this is a bit of a strange one. Part-movie collection, part-video game, Short Peace: Ranko Tsukigime's Longest Day is something that could only be pulled off on a home console. I suppose it's not surprising to see that Bandai Namco is the company publishing it, as it wasn't too long ago that they were offering a similar package with Tekken Hybrid, which included Tekken Tag Tournament HD and the Tekken: Blood Vengeance movie. 

Interestingly, the four films that the 'Short Peace' refers to were actually released in Japan in the middle of last year. These short films were animated by Sunrise, combined and released in theaters as a single showing. Crispy's Inc and Grasshopper Manufacture collaborated to create a game based on the Short Peace films, titled Ranko Tsukigime's Longest Day, which was later released in Japan in a bundle with the four films. It only took three months to hit our shelves after the Japanese release, which is pretty impressive. 

But is this media mash-up worth a place in your game collection?

Fatal Frame Wii U in the works: Plus a film, novel and comic too

Fatal Frame and the Wii U were destined for each other. The Wii U tablet was practically made to become my Camera Obscura, fighting for my life and sanity with my dwindling Type-Zero film. With no title or date released yet, ...

New Ace Attorney game announced, will be set in the Meiji period

Oh Capcom, forget that I had any concerns about you abandoning the Ace Attorney franchise. This week's Famitsu contains a shock announcement of a brand new game, one that looks to be a spin-off rather than an Ace Attorney 6. ...

First Impressions: Kamigami no Asobi  photo
First Impressions: Kamigami no Asobi
by Brittany Vincent

Kamigami no Asobi is a lively reverse-harem series based on the visual novel of the same name, and if it ends up anything like the Hakuoki series, it should be a treat to follow. It's got everything: gorgeous boys (for everyone into that), fanservice, and a heroine who might actually be able to hold her own, unlike Diabolik Lovers' Yui. It's also rocking animation that doesn't prompt me to recoil in horror from the screen. I think it might be worth following!
