Atari carts in landfill photo

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 team excavating t...

 
 
Dynasty Warriors: Gundam photo

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 into the third ...

 
 
Review: Short Peace photo

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 surprising to see...

 
 
 
Hunter x Hunter photo

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 the past few ye...

 
 
Dragon Ball Kai photo

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 kid, Kai was en...

 
 
Tales of Heart R photo

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 released back in 200...

 
 
Music photo

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 Experiments Lain, i...

 
 
Puzzle & Dragons photo

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 Enix were develop...

 
 
FI: Mekakucity Actors photo

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-established fan...

 
 
The World God Only Knows photo

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, Haqua and all of ...

 
 
 
Mekaku City Actors photo

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 figure out wha...

 
 
Taiko no Tatsujin photo

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 continued to get the ...

 
 
Crunchyroll x FUJI TV photo

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 is about to ch...

 
 
Final Imps: Golden Time photo

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. But hey, that's...

 
 
One Piece photo

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 the Human Human ...

 
 
 
Sonic: Lost World photo

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 and Wii U exclu...

 
 
Golden Time Ep. 23 photo

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 roller-coaster, a...

 
 
Hanamonogatari photo

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, and while the...

 
 
Review: Hundred Knight photo

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 urge to dive int...

 
 
Space Dandy S2 photo

Second season of Space Dandy will air in July

If you're ready for more adventure, pompadours and space boobies, you'll be pleased to hear that Space Dandy has just had it's second season confirmed, and it'll be coming as soon as July. You may remember that the show was due to run for 2...

 
 
Attack on Titan x MonHun photo

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 to end up in Mo...

 
 
 
Gundam TriAge SP photo

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 first 100 yen co...

 
 
Golden Time Ep. 22 photo

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've seen someone...

 
 
Kanpai Senshi After V photo

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 evil, as well as...

 
 
Stardust Crusaders photo

Polnareff concludes the JoJo: Stardust Crusaders previews

The fourth and final teaser for JoJo's Bizarre Adventure: Stardust Crusaders is finally here, and it's time to get French and slick up that hair of yours. Jean-Pierre Polnareff and his trusty Silver Chariot are all over this preview, and y...

 
 
Sega Humble Weekly Sale photo

Sega offering 19 games in the Humble Weekly Sale

The team at HumbleBundle.com are really good at pinching the pennies from your virtual wallet, even rivalling Steam's sales with its 'pay what you want' game bundles. This week is no exception, as Sega is stepping up and putting a hefty 19 ...

 
 
Golden Time Ep. 21 photo

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. Three episodes? Hav...

 
 
Special edition Monopoly photo

Pokémon 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 we know about i...

 
 
 
Pokemon XY Movie Trailer photo

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 colourful attack...

 
 
Project DIVA f  photo

Project DIVA f is now available in North America

Did you hold off buying Project DIVA F to wait for the PS Vita version? If you're in North America then wait no longer, as you can now pick up the portable version with the smaller f for a very reasonable $29.99 via the PlayStation Network...

 
 
Golden Time Ep. 20 photo

Annotated Anime: Golden Time episode 20

Well folks, we certainly hit the drama mother lode in this episode, with a reveal that's going to carry us all the way to the end of the series. I'm not about to spoil it up here in the preview, but make sure you've seen the latest episode ...

 
 
JoJo: Stardust Crusaders photo

It's Abdul's turn to star in a Stardust Crusaders teaser

The second of four Stardust Crusaders previews is now available, giving us a glimpse of the man from Cairo, Egypt. Mohammed Abdul and his stand Magician's Red are on full display, with even a guest appearance from a certain psycho vampire....

 
 
Godzilla Snickers Advert photo

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 that went into ...

 
 
Attack on Titan Burgers photo

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 get eaten in thi...

 
 
Theatrhythm: Curtain Call photo

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 sub par game lib...
