What time is it, everybody? GOLDEN TIME!!!
Actually it isn't, it's time for the latest episode of Jtor AM, but Golden Time is involved, so it's kind of true. This week: the Toonami people try to get us hyped about a new anime... | subscribe
Can you believe Naruto Shippuuden has had 26 different ending songs? Although the show lost me a while back, I've always been so impressed with their song selection. Who ever choosing the music for the show is absolutely bri...
Welcome to the latest week of Shonen Showdown, Japanator's weekly battle anime and manga recap, where this week's installment of Bleach can't help but wield some strangely charged imagery for no discernible reason. What do you think of the...er, thing in the header?
Other than questionable icons we've got an extra-sized Fairy Tail recap for you courtesy of Kristina, the ever-reliable dose of Hunter x Hunter from Chris, and I'll be trying to plumb the mysteries of Naruto and Bleach. Particularly Bleach this week. What the heck's up with that thing? Is it a pot? A Dragon Quest slime monster with wings? A visual stereotype of a particular racial-ethnic background?
You decide. Because I can't, for the life of me. Will someone please tell us in the comments? Oh, and talk about your favorite fight shows as well.

It's a good day for Naruto fans, fans of PC fighting games, and fans of "enhanced edition" rereleases. Namco Bandai has just announced that its Ultimate Ninja Storm series will be making a PC platform debut in Naruto Sh...
It's time once more for the battle anime and manga recap that you love, Shonen Showdown! And yes, though the header may not quite show our reaction face, it loves you too!
In fact, our love is so strong that we've jumped right up to the minute in time, bringing you a double-dose of Naruto and Hunter x Hunter, with spicy-hot chaser of Fairy Tail recaps, right on time with that freshly-released taste! So get on below and join us!
Welcome to Shonen Showdown, the only place on the Internet where we find the finest Japanese mangakas and make them beat each other senseless! Remember to root for Oda-sensei!
You know, wouldn't a mangaka pack make for some great downloadable content for the new Shonen Jump game coming to PS3? You could fight creator with creation, picking Luffy to duke it out with Oda or have Ichigo beat some sense into Kubo. That sounds like something I should hurry and copyright.
We have thoughts on Fairy Tail and Hunter x Hunter after the jump, so grab that beating stick and approach with caution. Josh is out travelling, so he'll be back next week supercharged, overpowered and with plenty of Naruto.
It's time for another week of Shonen Showdown, the weekly battle anime and manga recap that's swirling out of control and into another dimension! Before we make our fateful *ahem* "DT", we leave you with our weekly legacy: top-notch recaps of the latest in Naruto, Bleach, and Hunter x Hunter!
But don't worry, we will return from this dimensional exile. If reading theoretical physicist Michio Kaku's Parallel Worlds; A Journey Through Creation, Higher Dimensions, and the Future of the Cosmos taught us anything, it's that you can probably send your comments through the wormhole to get to us!
Hey, you! Want to look tough? Want to look strong? Want to look INTIMIDATING?! Well, don't become a random thug extra on a long-running shonen battle anime, because you might look like the freaks above! Better to aim for "protagonist" status, and attain some measure of distinctiveness, one not tied to your creepy Cthulu-mouth.
But hey, enough of that, it's time for Shonen Showdown, the weekly recap of all things fightin', where we put our own creepy Cthulu-mouths to use chewing the fat about the latest from Hunter x Hunter, One Piece, Naruto, Fairy Tail, and Bleach! Read our freshly-chewed fat (read: just-written recaps) and let us know what you thought in the comments!
