I don't know about you, but whenever I watch a food-related piece, my craving for tasty delicacies goes up. Seeing that the Japan Animator Expo project's 18th short starts off with a segment that takes place in a bento, one c...

It's time to look at another Animator Expo short and we might have to put on our thinking caps. Compare to the other stories, "Three Fallen Witnesses" throws us in the middle of a situation where two detectives are investigat...








To this day, I have yet to play one of Suda 51's titles; however, I'm familiar with the guy's bizarre storytelling style, since my friends told me about his greatness. Scratch that; I did play Liberation Maiden and the first ...

I'm gonna be there and taking pictures of y'alls wonderful cosplay so if you see this handsome gentleman (picture in the gallery) with the genderbent male Akemi Homura cosplay wearing the white jacket and bow that lights up, say hello!

I may be late to this news, but I felt that it would've been weird to post this on April Fools Day, since most folks might not take it seriously. Then again, it would've been neat to have stuck a true post within the herd of ...

Back when Toonami had a weekday afternoon block, I caught the 2001 Cyborg 009 anime on TV. One of the things that kept me watching was the main cast's battle against Black Ghost, since they had to deal with their issues ...



Ah, Astro Boy. Once the scion mascot of all things "Japanimation", the plucky robo-kid's fortunes have fallen on harder times than anyone this important to anime's history deserves. Even a blockbuster CG film adaptation didn...

The commercial for the second season of My Teen Romantic Comedy SNAFU is here and boy, the ever anti-social unlikable main protagonist Hachiman looks as anti-social as ever. Looks like there's a new female lead character in t...



Even though Naruto ended last winter, it doesn't prevent us at Japanator from talking about our favourite orange clad ninja. When it comes to fashion, I'll be hard pressed to recommend anything from the Naruto series. Green l...

I might get attacked for saying this, but I'm not a huge fan of the Star Wars series. While I enjoyed the original trilogy, Genndy Tartakovsky's amazing Clone Wars miniseries, and a few of the brand's games, my views to...



Airing this spring season is an anime adaptation of the mobile rhythm music game Show by Rock!!., which is a surprising collaboration of the Sanrio (the Hello Kitty people) and mobile game publisher/developer Greechs.The stor...

[Update: Check out a hot cam promo for the show below, straight from the AnimeJapan 2015 show floor!] I must say that as hyped-up as I am about the prospect of a hot new anime adaptation of One Punch Man, the skeptic in ...

I watched the first season of To Love Ru and enjoyed it for the most part. It similar to the American Pie series. They're both titillating harmless fun that will make your brain turn to mush if exposed for too long. And ...


Animator Expo has only been back for two weeks and Imaishi's short (NSFW) has hit the Web. Titled SEX and VIOLENCE with MACHSPEED, TRIGGER's piece feels like a mix between Panty & Stocking with Garterbelt and Dead Le...
