Holy Snap: A person walks a polar bear through Shibuya's streets

At first sight, I was surprised that someone decided to take a polar bear to Shibuya, since the concept behind this action isn't something that you don't see everyday. Based on the animal's movements, it's obvious that the p...

So what did you think of Miku on Letterman last night?

So yeah, it happened. It's still seems weird that a Vocaloid was on the David Letterman show! I personally can't quite get my head around the whole thing. I was pretty glad that they played Sharing the World, but question it...

It's awesome Japanese commercial time!

Exercise your mouths in the most disturbing way possible. Watch someone get their fash mashed in by a strawberry! There's even some footage of or buddy Kyary Pamyu Pamyu shopping! Yup, JPCMHD's commercial round up has it all...

A Daily Dose of Music: Old School Thursdays

This week we go back to 2007, and to the humble beginnings of the amazing band supercell. One of Ryo's first productions using Miku was the Nico Nico Douga success, Melt. He actually created a video using artist 119's imager...

Digimon All-Star Rumble's new trailer is all about the Supers

Back when Bandai Namco announced Digimon All-Star Rumble for the PS3 and 360, I ended up having mixed feelings on the news. On one side, it's neat that we're getting a multiplayer party brawler where we can fight as our favo...

Catch Miku on Letterman's Late Show tonight

To kick off a flurry of Miku events in the USA in the coming weeks, the famous vocaloid (we can legitimately call her that now, right?) will perform for the Late Show with David Letterman tonight. Starting on Thursday, Octobe...

A Daily Dose of Music: 9mm Parabellum Bullet

The Yokohama hard rockers 9mm Parabellum Bullet are back with a nasty new cut. The always forward sounding alt-rock band from Japan has a new single with Seimei no Waltz, and it's a blistering number. The track gets going out the gate and doesn't let up, yet still doesn't go into the realm of not being musical.

Annotated Manga: Naruto chapters 693-694
by Josh Tolentino

Well, I'm sure you've heard the news by now, but The End is near, and it's coming in six-odd chapters.

It's not completely over, of course. There's still a movie to go, the anime is some months behind even if they never touch filler again, and there's at least one more Ultimate Ninja Storm game  in the pipeline (many more if Bandai Namco's legacy of Dragon Ball Z games is any indication), so the saga of ninja madness will go for a long while yet after the last page is printed.

The 700 Club: Naruto manga ending on November 5th, 2014

I guess Masashi Kishimoto really wasn't kidding when he claimed that his baby and brainchild Naruto would be seeing its end sometime this year. That time is in six weeks or so, as the final chapter of the decade-and-a-ha...

So yeah... let's watch GACKT play video games: Gran Turismo 6

So GACKT is finally on a PS3, only one generation behind current times. He's also not all that bad at Gran Turismo. However, who's idea was it to put him behind the wheel of a Honda Fit? Doesn't the Japanese superstar deserve something a bit more plush? We even get to see a hint of celebration, treating himself to a Toyota GT 86.

Cowboy Bebop HD will be right on time for Christmas

What is probably one of the most anticipated Blu-Ray remasters in a long time, is set to be released just in time for Christmas on December 16th. The video from FUNimation looks fantastic, with the colors and details looking...
