Atari Cartridges have been discovered in New Mexico landfill

Well here's some unexpected news for the weekend! The myth that there are millions Atari 2600 cartridges, including the infamously awful E.T. the Extra-Terrestrial, may just have been proved true. There is currently a te...

Dynasty Warriors: Gundam Reborn heads west this July

What's better than fighting and destroying a Gundam? Fighting and destroying thousands of them, that's what. The Dynasty Warriors: Gundam spin-offs have been great fun so far, but I'll admit that I didn't put that much time ...

Review: Short Peace: Ranko Tsukigime's Longest Day

As far as bundles go, this is a bit of a strange one. Part-movie collection, part-video game, Short Peace: Ranko Tsukigime's Longest Day is something that could only be pulled off on a home console. I suppose it's not su...

New Ace Attorney game announced, will be set in the Meiji period

Oh Capcom, forget that I had any concerns about you abandoning the Ace Attorney franchise. This week's Famitsu contains a shock announcement of a brand new game, one that looks to be a spin-off rather than an Ace Attorney 6. ...

Hunter x Hunter manga to resume

You know, I had a feeling we'd be getting this announcement soon, seeing as the Hunter x Hunter anime is creeping closer and closer to the final complete arc from the manga. If you're not clued up on what's been going on for ...

Dragon Ball Kai's Buu saga will last almost a year and a half

Dragon Ball Kai has quite a noble goal in trying to cut out all of the added fluff from the original Dragon Ball Z series. Even though I'd seen the original series in its entirety, as well as plenty of times via Toonami as a ...

Tales of Hearts R heading overseas this winter

Self-proclaimed Tales of super fan Hideo Baba has announced on his YouTube channel that Tales of Hearts R will soon be making its way abroad. It's the PlayStation Vita remake of the original Tales of Hearts game, which relea...

The Dose: Old School Thursdays

It's time to head back to 1998, as today's music is coming from Mr Reichi Nakaido. This is the first of two places you may have heard his music if you're into your anime, as he composed most of the soundtrack for Serial Expe...

Puzzle & Dragons heads to arcades...a second time

I think we're all at least somewhat aware of how widely spread Puzzle & Dragons fever is in Japan, but I think their latest project is definitely a good indicator of its success. We've known since last year that Square En...

First Impressions: Mekakucity Actors

"Oh hey, a Shaft show! I didn't end up watching Nisekoi, so I'll be sure to watch this." This was the only reason I decided to pick up Mekakucity Actors. I had no idea that I was diving into what seems like a reasonably well-...

The World God Only Knows manga is ending soon

Sorry folks, but I'm about to make your Saturday a little miserable. We've known for a while that The World God Only Knows was due to end on its 26th volume, but we now have a date. We'll be saying goodbye to Keima, Elsie, Ha...

Go download the JoJos Bizarre Adventure All-Star Battle demo

You've just finished a week at work. Tough, right? You want nothing more than to just collapse at home, enjoy a nice cold drink and chill out. Don't worry, you deserve a good rest, but what are you going to do? Watch TV? You ...

Mekaku City Actors gets a teaser, go nuts

Eyes! Super powers! Shaft! What else could you possibly want from an anime series that's based on a few Vocaloid tunes? Mekaku City Actors is that anime, and it'll be airing in just a few days time. Meanwhile you can try and...

Second Taiko no Tatsujin 3DS game announced

Taiko no Tatsujin is great. You may not know it, but there was once a time when these games, albeit with an altered soundtrack, actually made it out of Japan. Unfortunately for us, this stopped years ago, but Japan has contin...

Crunchyroll partners with FUJI TV to stream 21 dramas

Remember when Crunchyroll used to show Japanese drama? I kid, but let's be honest, it's been pretty slim pickings on the drama front as so much time and effort was instead poured into acquiring anime simulcasts. However, this...

Final Impressions: Golden Time

We're finally here. The finale of the hottest amnesia-driven romantic comedy aired last week, and while it feels like it's taken several days just to digest what on Earth happened, I feel we've left the show in a good place. ...

I will become the Pirate King

To the Straw Hat Pirates, My name is Tony Tony Chopper, but most people call me Chopper. I am the doctor aboard the Thousand Sunny, the vessel we have shared for as long as I can remember. Even though I'm a reindeer who ate t...

Chocolate not doing it for you? Try some baked Kit Kats instead

Japan is well known for its exclusive and extravagant Kit Kat flavours, with the likes of cherry blossom, green tea and wasabi joining the more standard milk chocolate and orange varieties. Creating new flavours just isn't en...

The Legend of Zelda drops into Sonic: Lost World via free DLC

Nintendo certainly seems to at least be trying to step up their Wii U offering, and while Zelda DLC for a Sonic the Hedgehog game is hardly a system seller, it's the right kind of attitude to have. The game is already a 3DS ...

Annotated Anime: Golden Time episode 23

The penultimate episode. We're standing on the brink of Golden Time's conclusion, and while I want all of these bad things to wrap-up and conclude in the best way possible, I also don't want it to end. This show has been a ro...

Hanamonogatari gets its first teaser trailer

Nothing is going to slow down Shaft's Monogatari train, especially when you consider how popular the franchise has become. Heads would roll if people couldn't get the next available dose of Mayoi getting beaten up by Araragi...

Review: The Witch and the Hundred Knight

Diablo 3 was disappointing. That might be an odd way to start a review on a game from Nippon Ichi Software, but while I and many others await the Reaper of Souls expansion to complete the many Diablo 3 renovations, the u...

Second season of Space Dandy will air in July

Attack on Titan invades Monster Hunter Frontier G

Those titan hunters sure get around, don't they? It's pretty impressive actually, considering their species is essentially trapped in one place. This time they've managed to dodge harms way outside the city walls long enough ...

Luffy and Goku take to the streets to promote J-Stars Victory Vs.

You have to hand it to Japan. When they want to promote something, they're certainly willing to push the boat out to do so. This might not be on the same scale as the giant Gundam, but life-size statues of Luffy and Goku part...

The Gundam TriAge card game is coming soon to the 3DS

Back when I visited Tokyo in 2011, there was an interesting new arcade game that seemed to be pretty popular. That was Gundam TriAge, and after watching Japanese people play it in an attempt to figure out what to, I sunk my f...

Annotated Anime: Golden Time episode 22

This episode is so jammed full of reveals, shouting and tears that I spent quite some time figuring out where to even start. This got me thinking about Banri's reaction to the non-stop barrage of bad news, and I'm not sure I'...

More parody Sentai coming this April

After the success of the hilarious Akibaranger, it's not too surprising that there would be another Sentai parody show looming on the horizon. Kanpai Senshi After V is that show, which follows the main cast's fight against e...

Sega offering 19 games in the Humble Weekly Sale

Annotated Anime: Golden Time episode 21

I don't think I've seen an episode quite so liberal with dropping multiple bombshells in quick succession. Golden Time is certainly reaching its climax, and I'm positive that we're in for a gripping final three episodes. Thre...

Pokmon and Zelda special edition Monopoly sets are coming

I think Monopoly is a great game to play if you want to lose the will to live, your friends or both, but even I think I'll have trouble keeping my hands off the upcoming Pokémon special edition set. Unfortunately, all ...

It's Kakyoin's time to shine in the third JoJo: Stardust Crusaders trailer

Painting! Puppets! Crazy looking giant bugs! Yeah, I don't remember half of the stuff in this trailer appearing in the original OVAs, and I suppose that's exactly why I'm so excited for David Production to cover Stardust Cru...

Pokemon XY second movie trailer looks impressive

Animated pokémon battles are always great fun to watch, but the movies always like to go the extra mile. As it's Pokémon X&Ys first movie, we've got the powerhouses Yveltal and Xerneas firing all sorts of c...

Godzilla stops destroying cities to eat a delicious Snickers

What is it about this chocolate treat that could sedate such a terrifying monster? The caramel? The peanuts? The remaining half of the plastic wrapping? And what does this mean for the original film and the painstaking work ...

Attack on Arteries: New Lotteria burgers are insane

I can imagine that the design process for an Attack on Titan burger must have been a tough one. Grilling pictures into the bun would have been lame, and you can't really pick specialist ingredients when the only things that g...

Theatrhythm: Curtain Call trailer shows off new features

February 26th, 2011 was the release date of the Nintendo 3DS in Japan, so while I remember, happy birthday! However, the reason I've mentioned it is because for the longest time, myself and many others were critical of the s...
