This needs to stop: schoolgirls for sale in Japan

We, Japanator visitors, users and even the staff members I assume, are fans of manga, anime and japanese videogames. Some of us envision Japan as being a land full of those things that make us happy, and thus a kind of "prom...   read

The most japanese of all japanese bands

It happened little by little through the years, thanks to anime, manga, games, movies, music, food, the internet. Japanese culture is spread all over the world, gathering more fans every day. They even came up with a specifi...   read

Impressions - BAND-MAID® 2nd Anniversary at Shibuya Eggman

Before you stop what you are doing and listen to them, their look and name may be either a trump card to attract people into paying attention, or backfire entirely and draw people away. It all depend on your view on the enti...   read

Rejected to the end: Final Impressions on Hajime no Ippo: Rising

There was no possible way to end any anime season in a higher gear than what Rising did. A few weeks ago, I would easily say that Rising got one of the slowest phases in the 25+ years of Hajime no Ippo stories, from what we...   read

Rejected to the end: Final Impressions on Magi: The Kingdom of Magic

What an adventure! Magi may not be a shonen battle anime, but it sure reserved huge chunks of action and overall badassery for the end of this second season. Well, it's well deserved, because Ren Gyokuen and Al-Thamen were ...   read

Rejected to the end: Final Impressions on Noragami

I just gave my Final Impressions on Witch Craft Works the other day, and I feel that show shares some similarities with Noragami: both had huge potential, quality animation and interesting characters, but failed to deliver ...   read

Rejected to the end: Final Impressions on Witch Craft Works

Insanely awesome. That's how I would describe Witch Craft Works a month ago. Speaking the truth here, I was lost on the majority of the journey through the 12 episodes of this show. It sure had a plot since its beginning, b...   read

Rejected to the end: Final Impressions on Log Horizon

Players trapped in the game world. This premise is older than Tibia. Ok, maybe not that old, but it has been done countless times, and with the biggest recent success in this genre being Sword Art Online, comparisons are in...   read

jTunes - Miss Stereopony? Check out Shiho and Nohana in Draft King's Abracadabra

I don't quite know what happens with japanese girlbands, but they tend to not last long, with SHOW-YA reuniting and surpassing their 30th year being an (awesome) exception. ZONE was the first japanese girlband to break my h...   read

Staff's Rejects! Week 24 on Ippo, Magi, Log Horizon and more!

It's a time of memories and final bosses. Be it shows that started last season, be it shows from this current season, all of them are coming to an end, and there's not a better way to finish things off than facing a final b...   read

Staff's Rejects! Week 23 on Ippo, Magi, Log Horizon and more!

I don't even know what to write here, as Hajime no Ippo totally stole the show this week, and will be the brightest star in anime until the end of this season. If you read the manga, you know what I'm talking about. And if ...   read
