So yeah... let's watch GACKT play video games: GACKT vs Metalman

Not much has changed. GACKT still sucks at video games. Today he continues his Rockman 2 assault, actually getting to challenge Metalman. We actually get a smile out of the rock legend.

It's awesome Japanese commercial time!

Our favorite grumpy shiba-inu, Otousan graces us with his presence, Madoka gets a live-action, and I get hungry for chocolate snacks. I don't think my brain could handle much more. I also have an incredibly twisted desire for curry.

Check out the first seven minutes of HAL photo
Check out the first seven minutes of HAL
by Hiroko Yamamura

This one seemed have just slipped by me. Studio WIT, which is a subdivision of the mighty Production I.G. has a new animated film coming out, under the unassuming title HAL. The name gives me some serious Space Odyssey flash backs of glowing red circles, but I think the name is where the similarities end.

FUNimation is handling the dub, and so far it sounds alright to my usually biased ears. I can say that the film does look quite nicely detailed, and the character designs look tasty. Dae actually posted a review of the film a bit back, so you shuld probably check it out. The anime seems like a mix of some Rojin Z, and some Astroboy alongside some quickly love story. I'm going to have to make sure he sends me his screener ASAP!

Why do dubs always seem so loud?
