Weekend Japanatainment - Japanese Spider-Man Edition

Mar 12 // Red Veron
[embed]35610:6155:0[/embed] Supaidman Trailer from Marvel.com A trailer from when Marvel hosted the videos of full episodes of the show on their site years ago. They're not available anymore but someone uploaded them on YouTube and you can check it out below.   [embed]35610:6154:0[/embed] Supaidaman Intro The intro from the show and is full of that Japanese action show goodness from 1970's.   [embed]35610:6151:0[/embed] Supaidaman Episode 1 & 2 First two episodes of the show. Enjoy!   [embed]35610:6152:0[/embed] Supaidaman's Giant Robot "Marveller" A clip of the aforementioned giant robot from the show. They added a giant robot to the show at the time fearing that Spider-Man alone would not sell to Japanese kids. This robot is the reason Super Sentai (and Power Rangers) has giant transforming robots, which was a first in a live action TV show.   [embed]35610:6153:0[/embed] Stan Lee talks about Supaidaman The legend himself, Stan Lee, talks about Spider-Man being adapted by the Japanese in the late 1970's. I can only imagine what he must really have thought back in the day with some Japanese person turning his relatable-everyday-nerd-superhero into a guy who has alien blood induced super powers and a giant robot. What do you think of this adaptation? SHARE IN THE COMMENTS BELOW! I wanna know!

[Possible mature language for the videos below] [embed]35595:6140:0[/embed] GameSack - Anime and Manga Games A few retro anime and manga based games from the too dudes from GameSack.

They play video games and have some funny commentary and the video above has the crew playing a very Japanese video game about stripping the clothes of vampire-like creatures terrorizing Akihabara.   [embed]35595:6138:0[/embed] Bad Anime Games - Eruption Austin Eruption loves anime and video games, and he made this video about bad video games based on anime. (Direct all your hate mail to him and him alone)   [embed]35595:6141:0[/embed] Berserk and the Band of the Hawk - Super Best Friends Play Another video from the Super Best Friends as they play a game based on the original and one true "Black Swordsman".   [embed]35595:6137:0[/embed] Sword Art Online Games Suck - Eruption Direct all your hate mail to Austin.

Weekend Japanatainment - Hatsune Miku Commercials Edition

[embed]35547:6074:0[/embed] Domino's Pizza Japan Let's start with the weirdest commercial where a Domino's Pizza executive is introducing their new promotion with Hatsune Miku in Japan. This one got quite popular a few years ago and reached the US which garnered a great reaction. It's still surreal to see this commercial years later.   [embed]35547:6075:0[/embed] Toyota Corolla USA The first major attempt at introducing Hatsune Miku to the US by Toyota. While it sounds like it could work, it just didn't.   [embed]35547:6076:0[/embed] FamilyMart Japan FamilyMart is one of those convenience store chains in Japan that is slowly expanding in Asia and they're pretty good. This is one of those semi-weird low-key commercials and even features a kid making a weird face.   [embed]35547:6077:0[/embed] Lux Shampoo - Featuring Scarlett Johansson This is that shampoo commercial that had Scarlett Johansson talking to Miku on the phone.
