Sony invokes dongs to sell the new PS Vita

Remember that time in middle school you and your friends would get naked in the locker room and compare genitals? Me neither, but Sony does. This Japanese ad for the PS Vita calls up youthful PS-envy as young boys remark on ...   more

Annotated Anime: Stardust Crusaders episodes 13-16

One of the things I've grown to love about Stardust Crusaders is that it passes by quickly. It's amazing how I can basically leave the series for weeks on end and then catch up with all of them and remark "Wow, that was ...   more

Report: Power Rangers co. Saban sues indie Sentai game

I love the story of Chroma Squad, a little indie game from Brazilian outfit Behold Studios. They took something they loved - tokusatsu and Super Sentai - and made it into a unique game concept - putting players in the shoes o...   more

Annotated Manga: Bleach chapter 589

Y'know, when Urahara said that getting transport ready to take Ichigo and crew to the Royal Palace would take "a minute or sixty", he wasn't kidding. Or maybe he was kidding, since I took him about two weeks worth of chapters...   more

Japan's Frozen PS4 would've looked better in white

Frozen may have pretty much taken over the world, but that won't stop companies trying to cash in on its popularity with tacky, cheap branded merchandise. No, that doesn't make sense, because that's exactly why companies...   more

Annotated Manga: Bleach chapter 588

I was reading through a bunch of my old recaps for Bleach - reading your old writing is a great way to make sure you don't get too full of yourself - and realized that I spend a lot of time talking about Bleach in generalities, rather than tackling the specifics of a given chapter or episode.

If I were a less charitable and much lazier recapper, I'd point you to my First Impressions of Buddy Complex and call it a day. Heck, nearly all of it except the basic plot description still applies! That's because Argev...   more
