Happy Monday, folks! It's time to get focused on fighting off the banality of the week with Shonen Showdown, the weekly recap that's using the title bar to conveniently censor the werewolf above! Don't look! It's a....compromising position.

Where we don't compromise, however, is on the hottest new chapters of Naruto, Bleach, and Hunter x Hunter, with a side order of PreCure to boot! Get on below to get all that into your system!

Anime-fied: Naruto Ultimate Ninja Storm Revolution getting tons of footage

Well, I guess I spoke too soon when I hoped that Naruto Shippuden: Ultimate Ninja Storm Revolution wouldn't totally be a "filler" game made to annualize the Ultimate Ninja Storm  franchise, like Ultimate Ninja ...

Naruto Ultimate Ninja Storm Revolution is filler madness

We missed this trailer a couple of days ago, but now that it's here, I have to say that this is kind of nuts: Bandai Namco has followed through on their obvious intention to turn the Ultimate Ninja Storm series into the anim...

Review: Naruto: Ultimate Ninja Storm 3 Full Burst photo
Review: Naruto: Ultimate Ninja Storm 3 Full Burst
by Chris Walden

Don't worry, you're not suffering from a case of deja-vu! In a trend that is becoming increasingly common, we have a Game of the Year equivalent for Naruto Shippuden: Ultimate Ninja Storm 3, rolling up the DLC and re-releasing it to those of us that passed it up the first time around. Or the fans that are happy to double-dip, I suppose. 

Unlike most other games, Full Burst actually comes with some new content that wasn't made available as DLC, so there's incentive for owners of the original game to check this out. You can either upgrade your current copy for a small fee, or go all-out and purchase a physical copy at a lower price than your typical game. Not bad.

But I've already talked about Ninja Storm 3, so this review is going to focus on what Full Burst brings to the table. Hit the jump to check out what I made of it, but let's just say that the $9.99 upgrade is pretty reasonable indeed.

Hello and welcome to the latest installement of Shonen Showdown, your weekly recap of the best in battle anime and manga! We've got the full cast in this week, with sweet double-dose recaps of One Piece, Naruto, and Hunter x Hunter all present and accounted for. Oh, and Bleach gets all religious on everyone's ass, and for no particularly good reason as far as I can tell.

Either way, that doesn't diminish the quality of today's cover page celebrating Naruto's 15th year in publication. Fifteen years. That's crazy

Happy birthday, Gaara!

I haven't kept up with the on-goings of Naruto and friends in a while, but one thing that has been consistent is my love for Gaara. Finding great artwork dedicated to today's birthday boy wasn't too hard, though limiting my g...

Realtor values Naruto's apartment at $100,000

Anime and manga characters get pretty cool digs. More often than not, they're living almost completely independently in housing that they couldn't possibly afford at their usual middle- and high-school ages. Makes you wonder ...
