Review: Persona 3 The Movie: #2 Midsummer Knight's Dream

Despite its pacing problems and general lack of an overarching story, I enjoyed Persona 3 The Movie: #1 Spring of Birth. As far as animated film adaptations of long games go, I think it did a novel job of compressing hours of...

Ufotable's take on Fate/stay night UBW looks hot

Mobile Suit Gundam: Side Stories has a new 9 minute trailer

Bandai Namco's latest PS3 Mobile Suit Gundam game is going to be one hell of a package. Gundam: Side Stories isn't just a single game, but rather a collection of six new and remade old titles from the Side Story series. I ha...

2nd and 3rd Rurouni Kenshin films get a full length trailer

I was a big fan of the first live action Rurouni Kenshin film. It had pacing problems, but on the whole, I felt that it did a strong job of capturing the tone of the manga while adapting the material in a way that worked for...

New 5 minute Persona Q trailer is too hype

The past few months of Persona Q: Shadow of the Labyrinth trailers have been fairly brief. Character overviews, brief bits and pieces of battles; there hasn't been a beefy video exploring the entire game in quite some time. ...

New Persona Q key illustration, fusion details, and guest contributors emerge

2nd Tales of Zestiria trailer hits the net

Bandai Namco's Tales games will always have a special place in my heart. Not all of them are great, but there's something comforting about knowing they'll always be there. It's one of the few long running RPG series that sti...

Meiji era Ace Attorney game gets its first trailer

Ace Attorney is easily one of my top five favorite video game series. It's weird, it's got fantastic characters, and the music gets my blood pumping at all the right times. I loved Ace Attorney: Dual Destinies, and to say I ...

Annotated Anime: Captain Earth episode 2 & 3

I can't remember the last time I watched a mech anime with so much nonsensical techno babble. Bones' latest stab at the genre, Captain Earth, seems to have no qualms with throwing out made-up words and leaving them undefined ...

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

The Idolm@ster: One For All to feature DLC Cinderella Girls and Million Live idols

To be quite honest, I wasn't expecting a whole lot from Bandai Namco's The Idolm@ster: One For All. The fact that it's not a numbered game made me suspicious that it'd be a throwaway entry in the series. That may still be the...

Impressions: Bodacious Space Pirates: Abyss of Hyperspace

I firmly believe that Satelight's scifi space opera, Bodacious Space Pirates, is a series that deserves a better name. Even the original novel's title (Miniskirt Space Pirates) betrays the actual content of the show. Hell, I ...

First Impressions: Captain Earth

I secretly loved Star Driver. The ridiculously over-the-top posing, flashiness, strange imagery, and the beautiful animation; it all came together to make for an entertaining whirlwind of confusion and glee. That shouldn't co...

Review: Strider

I have a confession to make. I really love the original NES Strider. Yes, it's glitchy, unpolished, and generally a confusing oddity. I understand all of that. But for every strange design decision that didn't work, there are...
