Here's everything you wanted from Sony's TGS presser

It wasn't all about a fifth Persona game, y'know! Quite a bit happened when Sony took the stage just before the Tokyo Game Show opened this year, to barrage our faces with sweet trailers for games known and new, as...

Annotated Manga: Naruto chapter 690

Welcome (again) to the second incarnation of this week's Annotated Manga for Naruto! It seems that some technical foulup wiped all the text from the recap while the watchers were looking the other way (or asleep). Never fear, though, for a good ninja always keeps a backup, and this is it. Apologies for the mixup!

Japanator Eats: Green Tea Snacks Part 3

Final installment of the green tea series is up for your viewing pleasure. It was a heck of a ride tasting all the green tea snacks that I got my hands on. Some were great, and some, were not that great... The main thing though is, just get out there and try something new. You never know when you will find that new favorite snack.

This corgi's costume is over 9,000

Cosplay? Corgsplay? With their long shape, oversized head, and ridiculous features, Welsh Corgis make the best costume dogs. And as members of the herding dog group, they're a perfect fit as scouter users. I almost couldn't b...

Annotated Anime: Sword Art Online II episode 8

It seems that A-1 might be in the clear right now. And to think that the BoB tournament was the key to helping Sword Art Online II move in the right direction. However, my main concern right now is that the Phantom Bullet Arc won't take up an entire season. Based on the direction the show is taking, this event might be the one to determine the storyline's actual length.

Review: Persona 3 The Movie: #2 Midsummer Knight's Dream

Despite its pacing problems and general lack of an overarching story, I enjoyed Persona 3 The Movie: #1 Spring of Birth. As far as animated film adaptations of long games go, I think it did a novel job of compressing hours of...
