Get a golden Bearguy III with second Gundam BF Blu-ray

As you may have read, I'm quite fond of Gundam Build Fighters. The show is pure fun and knows how to craft some amazing battles from a fairly silly premise. That said, it's a glorified gunpla commercial. Well, you can argue t...

Viz to put out K as an A-grade Blu-ray combo pack

Much as I've embraced our digital media future, I still have a soft spot in my heart for sweet physical extras. After all, I did once buy a copy of Sakura Taisen that I didn't have a machine for just to get a hilarious-l...

Review: Kamisama Kiss photo
Review: Kamisama Kiss
by Karen Mead

When I dream of becoming God, these fantasies usually don't involve a white-haired pretty boy with fox ears who follows me around and does my bidding; clearly, I've been doing it wrong. Now that Kamisama Kiss has taught me the error of my ways, my visions of deity will probably contain more sexy fox men and less sending other drivers to burn in eternal hellfire when they forget to use their blinkers. It's probably healthier this way.

Have your own delusions of Godhood been too full of wrath and too light on supernatural boyfriends lately? Then you too could probably use some Kamisama Kiss in your life.

Review: Fate/Zero Blu-ray Box Set 2 photo
Review: Fate/Zero Blu-ray Box Set 2
by LB Bryant

When Fate/Zero Set 2 starts off, we're thrown right in the middle of a major battle. Caster has created a huge monster and it's up to Saber, Lancer, Rider and Archer to defeat it before it can cause major damage to the general populace. After he is dispatched, it's back to the Grail War and tons of talking, plotting, planning and backstabbing.

To make it clear, I enjoyed the second half of Fate/Zero but there are flaws within it which the audience should be aware of before picking it up. Just how big are the flaws? Join me after the jump to find out.

Review: Zetman photo
Review: Zetman
by Salvador G Rodiles

Even though I’m the guy at Japanator that watches toku shows, my experience with superhero stories in general is below average. While I’ve kept up with many of the cartoons and films that are based off of DC and Marvel’s characters, I never got around to reading the original comic books that many people grew up with.

Based on my limited experience with the genre, I find the heroes' inner struggles to be one of the most interesting things about their adventures. Since Zetman focuses on two heroes, whose backstories and moral values differ from one another, the premise of this show is right up my alley-- the question was whether or not it could deliver on its promise.

Battling evildoers is a serious occupation, so let's find out if Zetman's main characters have what it takes to become true champions of justice.

Review: Good Luck Girl  photo
Review: Good Luck Girl
by Brittany Vincent

When I first started watching Good Luck Girl, I had just finished up the sex comedy B Gata H Kei (Yamada's First Time), which was surprisingly hilarious given its lack of actual sex. I'm a big supporter of anime comedies, especially when they actually make me laugh -- because let's be honest, they usually aren't very funny.

Good Luck Girl had me cracking a smile as soon as the Poverty God herself made an appearance. The combination of an excellent English script, hilarious localization, and some ingenious sight gags had me giggling all the way through. I'm glad I took a chance with it, because I came out pleasantly surprised, and with a new favorite ending sequence. Seriously, I really can't get enough of it.

Viz announces date for first Ranma 1/2 Blu-ray

Ranma 1/2 was the second anime that I watched as a teen, after Dragon Ball Z. To say it holds a happy little niche in my heart would be an understatement. I got a full year of enjoyment out of that show and I've always wanted...
