Happy birthday, Gaara!

I haven't kept up with the on-goings of Naruto and friends in a while, but one thing that has been consistent is my love for Gaara. Finding great artwork dedicated to today's birthday boy wasn't too hard, though limiting my g...

Minecraft meets Studio Ghibli

You may or may not have already seen these pictures floating around on Imgur the past couple of days. Yes, that's right. Someone has taken the time to recreate the memorable scenery of Studio Ghibli's Spirited Away. For someo...

Happy birthday, Utena Tenjou! photo
Happy birthday, Utena Tenjou!
by Kristina Pino

Utena Tenjou, the Revolutionary Girl, turns 17 today! And all these years later, she still inspires some beautiful artwork of which I've chosen a modest sample to share with you. Well, to be precise, a sample of 17 images since that's the magic number.

I'm actually pretty happy with this batch, not just because it's Utena and she's awesome, but also because of the variety in art styles present. It's a real delight, so please enjoy the gallery below! Here's the full list of credits:

Happy birthday, Kagamine twins! photo
Happy birthday, Kagamine twins!
by Kristina Pino

Today, December 27th, the Kagamine twins Rin and Len turn six years old. Though they're perpetually 14, there's always a steady flow of art, new costumes, and updated music for all members of the Vocaloid world, so let's enjoy some of it in the gallery below!

Rin and Len happen to be my favorite Vocaloid characters, and I happen to own a fair amount of figures of the two (including the ones in the header, which were photographed by me), so it was tough narrowing down all the great artwork out there to just a handful for this post. I opted to feature art that was created recently (within the last six months) in order to really cut things down. It helped.

Happy birthday, Fuu Hououji!

Happy birthday to Fuu, the ever-gentle, ever-green (at least in eyes and dress) Magic Knight who stole my heart so many years ago. I always did like her powers and humor, and green is my favorite color. That and she was an am...

Take a peek at Bayonetta: Bloody Fate's storyboards

Gonzo is making a Bayonetta movie, didn't you hear? You know what that means: time to run in terror! Ok, fine, maybe Gonzo isn't that bad, but they don't exactly have a stellar track record with their anime adaptions of video...

MCM London Comic Con Oct 2013 cosplay gallery
by Chris Walden

Heading to the ExCel Centre for MCM London Comic Con isn't all about buying pricey import goods and hearing about the latest anime titles to be licensed, no sir! As is the case with all conventions that are vaguely anime-related, cosplayers arrive in small armies for photographs and a good laugh. 

It was no surprise to see so many Attack on Titan cosplayers this time, but rest assured that the Narutos, Haruhis and elaborate furries were still out in force. You can't have a complete cosplay meetup without them, after all!

Thanks to Tomopop's Martin Siggers for being a camera wizard and securing all of the snaps in the gallery, so be sure to check it out below. You could even be super cool and follow him on Twitter!

Spike Chunsoft's Dangan Ronpa: Trigger Happy Havoc is a fantastic game. A combination of Ace Attorney-like trials and investigation, and 999/VLR-like atmosphere and plot progression, Dangan Ronpa is rich with personality. I p...
