Sony upgrades Shinji's ratchet old SDAT tape player with HD audio

Stupid Shinji and his stupid tape player. All he ever does is replay that one track. You'd think he'd get tired of it by now, or at the very least he could upgrade to a CD player or an iPod. But no, he's still stuck with a So...

Rejoice?! Akiba's Trip 2 might be coming to PS4 this summer

I played Acquire's open world strip-action game, Akiba's Trip 2, when it came out in Japan this past year. While it wasn't exactly a mind blowing experience one way or the other, I had my fun with it. I think there are defini...

Jtor AM 27: Are they going to school with ghosts? photo
Jtor AM 27: Are they going to school with ghosts?
by Karen Mead

This week, some staff members who shall remain nameless would rather have a Game of Thrones podcast then talk about silly Japanese cartoons all day. But alas, we are Japanator, not DaenerysTargaryenator, so we must persevere through a season of less-than-inspiring shows. We do however manage to discern a few bright lights of hope in the form of One Week Friends and Ping Pong, and Ben would be totally up for discussing Mushishi S2 if anyone else would ever watch it.

Notable questions of the week: Will the Gurren Lagann stage play feature giant paper mache robot heads? Is the school in Kamigami no Asobi filled with ghosts, and if so, shouldn't Yui be a little concerned about that? Has L.B. discovered the ultimate secret behind Nisekoi? And finally, what does BONES have against hiring actual writers who know how to write more than one story? All this, and more, on an exciting, conflict-filled Jtor AM 27!

...Oh and Tim of all people watched Marvel Disc Wars, seriously I don't even know where to start with that.
