Pull Over! Kamen Rider Drive gets a preview and more

A Letter to Momo opens in America this week photo
A Letter to Momo opens in America this week
by Hiroko Yamamura

The award winning Production I.G. film A Letter to Momo, is set to hit theaters this week, and with any luck might be hitting your home town. The beautiful looking film has the makings of a classic, and is a tale of a shy kid meeting supernatural friends under unfortunate circumstances. Although stylistically is definitely its own piece of art, I can't help but draw a few Studio comparisons by the trailer. 

The dub sounds quite whimsical so far, and stars soap opera actress, Amanda Pace in the lead role. I'm hoping to catch the film when it hits theaters in Chicago this week. Any of you guys planning to see it? I'm pretty excited for this one.

A Daily Dose of Music: Old School Thursdays

Back in 2006, I was going through a major case of anime fatigue. It seemed like as anime was gaining popularity here in the west, I was slowly not finding any television shows to my liking. There was definitely a shift in pa...

Get robots drunk in VA-11 HALL-A's cyberpunk bar

OK, I'll admit it right now: The main reason I'm posting about VA-11 HALL-A, a indie bartending game, is because of its website, located at a domain called (and I'm not kidding) Waifubartending.com. These people know wh...

Chaika gets hers in this 'Avenging Battle' trailer

I liked what I saw of Chaika the Coffin Princess. In fact, at first glance I was convinced that someone was blatantly ripping off the underappreciated Scrapped Princess, until I found out they were from the same author....
