The latest issue of Shueisha's Bessatsu Margaret is about to announce an anime edition of Ayuko Hatta's Wolf Girl & Black Prince, and I'm extremely interested. You guys remember Hot Gimmick, right? This sounds so totally ...


It's another double dose of Happiness Charge PreCure as I get up to speed on the series for regular Shonen Showdown coverage! This week we're rapidly developing some characters and checking out some new PreCards. I'm ready for the third PreCure to make her appearance. How about you?




I'm no stranger to magical girl anime, but I've never watched a PreCure series. I've always been interested, but once I sat down and started watching, the daunting task of sitting through 50+ episodes of each series no longer...

Look guys, it's my first video! Let it never be said that I've been left behind in the age of new technology by sticking solely to writing text! Actually, I've totally been left behind in the age of new technology (I worked ...


As a Sailor Moon fan, or "Moonie" of 15 years, it's kind of amazing that I never got around to reading the entire manga until now. I guess it's not that weird when you think about it; early on, I was all about anime and had l...


Last week saw the release of the first volume of Sweet Rein, a Christmas-themed love story published by VIZ Media. It's a translation of Sakura Tsukuba's Yoroshiku Master, which is finished, and mercifully short (three volume...

VIZ Media is ready to kick off the holiday season early with the release of a new shoujo series titled Sweet Rein. The first volume will be out on November 5th both in print (US$9.99) and digitally (US$6.99) via the VIZ Manga...


I already let you know about the Manga Reborn Kickstarter, which seeks to make a bunch of lesser-known manga legally available in English. Normally, the fact that the Kickstarter has added another title to the project wouldn'...


I don't know about you, but it looks like Viz has shifted into a manga overdrive with their latest announcements from Shojo Beat and Shonen Jump. On the digital side of things, Skip Beat, W Julie...


The Akiba reports that Kimi no Iru Machi, a manga/story by the same creator of Suzuka, which has only had a couple of OVAs will now be adapted until a full-on show. There aren't really any details further than that, thou...


You probably wouldn't be able to guess from my love of sci-fi anime, but the romantic anime series, Marmalade Boy is one of my all time favorites. I usually don't dig in shoujo anime and manga, but the Marmalade Boy TV series...


The PSP is the console that just refuses to die, almost 10 years after its North American launch. The good folks at Aksys Games have announced that they'll be bringing Idea Factory's otome game Sweet Fuse: At Your Side (Bakud...

Out of the blue, Media Blasters has announced via their Facebook page that they have acquired the license to Fushigi Yuugi, the 1995 series that ran for 52 episodes and spawned a few follow-up OVAs. The anime was previously p...


Surrealism is difficult to pull off properly in any genre or medium. Sure it's easy to slap some bizarre stuff next to a speaking character and say that it's surreal, but it rarely adds more to the final product. It usually t...


This last fall season, FUNimation simulcasted the light-hearted anime Jellyfish Princess (aka: Kuragehime), which ended up becoming well-received here at Japanator, if not being considered a bit too short. Not too l...

And now, more digital anime news. Viz is releasing Ultra Maniac on not just Hulu, not just iTunes, but both Hulu and iTunes. You could pay for it or not pay for it, isn't that great? The first five episodes of the series...


This show is NOT about a jellyfish princess. Protagonist Tsukimi makes this clear: even though her mother told her as a child that all girls grow up into princesses, something has gone wrong and she’s just a nerdy girl....
