Feast your eyes on a man walking nine cats through Tokyo

I may be more of a dog fan than a cat one, but it's hard to ignore an adorable moment where a guy takes his Chinchilla and Himalayan Cats for a walk in the streets of Tokyo. Instead of walking them like a dog, the man places ...

The Eccentric Family plushies on the way

The Eccentric Family has been one of the highlights of the past season for me. It combined Japanese mythology with average life in a way that was really enjoyable -- and adorable. Tanuki, tengu, and more are part of the tale,...

First Impressions: Saki Episode of Side A
by Josh Totman

It was nice to see that the mahjong anime Saki would be getting a second season. The first season was cute, lovable, and didn't teach you much about mahjong. At least, I didn't learn anything like I was hoping for. That's what initially got me interested in the anime when I first heard it was coming out.

Saki Episode of Side A looks to continue with the cute charm of the original, which I welcome with open arms.

I'm not normally interested in picking up ecchi shows. Not that I have anything against them, but it's hard for me to find a good one. The only show that springs to mind even now is Chobits, which I do adore, but you may even be able to chalk that one up to Clamp. So why would I even consider watching this show?

Well, I've noticed that in the last two seasons we've had both C and Blood-C, followed this season of course by. What could this mean? Absolutely nothing considering it's pure coincidence! I know that, but I'm stupid enough to use such a flimsy reason to go check out a new show. But was it worth it, or did it come back to bite me? W-well, you better come find out. It's not like I wrote this for you or anything...

Plush Kyubey spreads love, hugs and fear

"What happens if you cross a hugging pillow with pure evil?" It's a question that many of us have asked ourselves. Japanese character-goods designer Cube snagged a license for Mahou Shoujo Madoka★Magica, and their lates...
