Even though Naruto ended last winter, it doesn't prevent us at Japanator from talking about our favourite orange clad ninja. When it comes to fashion, I'll be hard pressed to recommend anything from the Naruto series. Green l...
Knowing a ladies' three sizes is a blessing and curse. It shows that you are accurate and observant but to the woman in question it just means you're a massive pervert. There has only been one person I know that has the abili...
I could go on a massive rant about how, why, and what I love about Asian Kung Fu Generation. From their supremely magnificent album Sol-Fa, to their more experimental works with Magic Disk and World World World, and finally t...
Ever since I was a kid, I've always been fond of dinosaurs, since they're literally giant reptiles with their own unique feature, such as huge wings, fierce claws and deadly spikes. While we're on the topic of prehistoric cre...


I know that I joked around in the past about 2015 being the Year of the Ninja, but Japan's recent tourism-related move might as well turn my made-up holiday into a real thing. Long story short, the Japanese government have de...

Asian Kung-Fu Generation may not roll off the tongue as well as some other band names but their sound is definitely iconic. Playing on top of animated openings like Naruto, Fullmetal Alchemist, and Bleach, AKFG helped en...
How about that Persona 5 trailer, eh? While the sensible voice in my head cautions me against getting too hyped-up for games that aren't out yet, but the Persona-fan voice in my head is currently drowning it out with shouts a...
Now I've had my share of US military rations, better known as "Meals-Ready-to-Eat" (MREs) I've often wondered how other countries handled their on-the-go meals for their troops. US military MREs aren't the tastiest and often ...
