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...

 
 
Golden Time Ep. 19 photo

Annotated Anime: Golden Time episode 19

Can you see it? Can you see the ending of this show that apparently lurks a mere five weeks away? Five more episodes to go, and assuming we don't find ourselves in a second season, we'll have our conclusion. Surely before the end we're due ...

 
 
Kill la Kill Lego photo

These Kill la Kill Lego figures are the best

The Internet can be a wonderful place sometimes, and getting to see characters from Kill la Kill crafted out of the finest Danish plastic reassures me on this. Not only do we have a pretty faithful Mako, but we have a Kamui Senketsu mode Ry...

 
 
JoJo: Stardust Crusaders photo

Old coot Joseph appears in this Stardust Crusaders teaser

I have some rather fond memories of the original Stardust Crusaders anime, in particular the god awful English dub. There's nothing quite like seeing old man Joseph Joestar running about the place, screaming "Holly!" at every opportune mom...

 
 
Final Fantasy X/X-2 HD photo

J-Stars Victory Vs. photo

Five new characters join the J-Stars Victory Vs. roster

Getting sick of all the J-Stars news? I certainly hope not, because here's the next serving! According to a leaked scan of this month's V-Jump, there are five more combatants joining the already sizeable cast; three as fully playable charac...

 
 
Chu2Koi2 Ep. 5 and 6 photo

Annotated Anime: Chuunibyou Ren episode 5 and 6

It seems my worry that this show would be unnecessary may been legitimate, as we're now halfway through the new season with nothing to show for it. Sure, there's been some relationship business with Rikka and having her finally step out of ...

 
 
Pokemon Battle Trozei photo

Pokémon Battle Trozei lands on the 3DS in March

Thursday's Nintendo Direct brought a few new announcements with it, one of which will please us Pokémon fans. Remember Pokémon Trozei? It was a match-three game for the Nintendo DS, and not a particularly bad one at that. Sti...

 
 
Golden Time Ep. 17 photo

Annotated Anime: Golden Time episode 17

It seems like the story is finally welcoming back Mitsuo, as this week's episode revolves around his relationships with Linda and Banri. Sure, he's been around, popping in and out every so often to parade around in those Speedos of his, but...

 
 
Danganronpa 2 photo

Danganronpa 2 accidentally confirmed for localization?

If today's release of Danganronpa: Trigger Happy Havoc in North America isn't enough to get you excited, then what about the news that the sequel may be following it? Kyle Hebert, a voice actor who has previously worked on anime like Fate/Z...

 
 
Review: Danganronpa photo

Review: Danganronpa: Trigger Happy Havoc

I'll be honest with you. Before playing Danganronpa: Trigger Happy Havoc for the first time, I had to dust off my PS Vita, charge it up for a few hours and install a stack of updates. Unfortunately, this isn't the first time I've gone throu...

 
 
New Yuru Yuri photo

New Yuru Yuri anime is coming soon

It seems that the anime industry doesn't plan on cooling down amidst what seems like hundreds of figure reveals at Wonder Festival today, as Namori, creator of Yuru Yuri, has announced via her Twitter account that a new animation project ha...

 
 
Sgt Frog Promo Video photo

Here's a promo for the new Sgt. Frog anime

There may already be 358 episodes of Sgt. Frog and his loony group of invaders, but there's definitely room for more. Keroro, the upcoming series that'll comprise of 5-minute episodes, has finally got a promo trailer. By the looks (and sou...

 
 
Ben-to Funimation photo

FUNimation teases us with a Ben-To website

[Edit: It seems that FUNimation have secured the streaming rights. One step at a time!] Well, who honestly saw this coming? Ben-To, the anime that depicts the atrocities of discount bento combat, might finally have been licensed. While it w...

 
 
Chu2Koi2 Ep. 4 photo

Annotated Anime: Chuunibyou Ren episode 4

I think I've spent the past quarter of an hour playing over the new Chuunibyou opening in my head. It's becoming borderline maddening, but it's a pretty great tune so I'm not sure I mind. Anyone that has a problem with turntable magic circl...

 
 
Golden Time Ep. 16 photo

Annotated Anime: Golden Time episode 16

I was recently having a conversation about Golden Time while on a car journey, talking about how Banri is fantastic at making awful decisions, and how Koko isn't exactly bad at it either. I then went to describe the latest episode and my op...

 
 
Pokemon Bank photo

Pokémon Bank has appeared in Europe

You know, after months of watching fans of Pokémon X&Y eagerly awaiting the release of Pokémon Bank, it seems extremely odd that it would end up on the European eShop without any kind of grand announcement. Inste...

 
 
Mind Zero photo

GameStop leaks the localisation of Mind Zero

Remember Mind Zero? It was an RPG released by Acquire in August of last year, though it never made it out of Japan. Nothing to lose hope over, as games like Bravely Default continue to demonstrate, but news of the game and potential localis...

 
 
Golden Time Ep. 15 photo

Annotated Anime: Golden Time episode 15

On this week's edition of Most Haunted, we discuss what kinds of powers our spectral friends are capable of wielding. Observable powers in this episode include, but are not limited to: Manipulation of air conditioners Sudden outbursts of r...

 
 
N:UNS 3 Full Burst photo

Review: Naruto: Ultimate Ninja Storm 3 Full Burst

Don't worry, you're not suffering from a case of deja-vu! In a trend that is becoming increasingly common, we have a Game of the Year equivalent for Naruto Shippuden: Ultimate Ninja Storm 3, rolling up the DLC and re-releasing it to those o...

Earth Defense Force 2025 gets an English trailer

Oh, how I do love firing rockets into swarming groups of giant ants. I'm also quite fond of firing rockets into giant spiders, robots, spaceships, buildings and just about anything else I can find while playing an Earth Defense Force game....

 
 
Braving Inwards. photo

Come meet the Kyoryugers of 100 years in the future

We do still have a few weeks of dinosaur-related sentai action, but if the conclusion to the story and a few movies don't seem like enough content for you, why not get excited for the upcoming special? Set 100 years after the events of the...

 
 
Chu2Koi2 Ep. 3 photo

Annotated Anime: Chuunibyou Ren Ep. 3

A new challenger approaches! We finally have our new character, and it looks like she'll fit right in with the rest of the cast. That is, assuming she's going to invite herself into their school every day, or she gets herself transferred. E...

 
 
AoT Mobile Game photo

Here is the Attack on Titan social game we didn't ask for

An Attack on Titan game where you play as someone living outside of the walls seems like a rather interesting premise, but watching the video above will quickly drop your expectations unless you're a big fan of resource management games. A...

 
 
NS:UNS Revolution photo

Naruto Ultimate Ninja Storm Revolution features old Kages

You know, the current Naruto arc is an absolute gold mine for CyberConnect2, as it's allowing them access to so many new and interesting characters. They've already boasted that the roster in Naruto Shippuden: Ultimate Ninja Storm Revolutio...

 
 
Golden Time Ep. 14 photo

Annotated Anime: Golden Time Ep. 14

In my opinion, Golden Time is one of the most interesting romances we've had in recent years. Who knows if that'll last all the way to the show's conclusion, but when the Internet explodes because two characters are seen chatting, you know ...

 
 
New Basara anime photo

Be enthusiastic! New Sengoku Basara anime on the way

Did you know that there is an event running in Japan called the Sengoku Basara 4 Basara Festival 2014 ~Party of the New Year~? I certainly didn't, and while I could just spend a few paragraphs talking about how perfect that name is, Ca...

 
 
Chu2Koi2 Ep. 2 photo

Annotated Anime: Chuunibyou Ren Ep. 2

Another episode deep and I'm wondering if my concerns about this show are actually justified. That's not to say that this latest episode is an animated masterpiece that knocks it out the park, but Rikka and Yuuta's extended adventures are t...

 
 
J-Stars Victory Vs. photo

Hisoka joins J-Stars as support, plus new screenshots

Well that didn't take very long! After yesterday's news of four new characters, we have a leak revealing the two bonus villains that were teased via silhouettes. Of course, like many people figured, it's Toguro from Yu Yu Hakusho and Sousuk...

Golden Time Ep. 13 photo

Annotated Anime: Golden Time Ep. 13

It's been a few weeks since Golden Time last aired, which naturally means that I spent most of that time pondering what the next Banri-goof was going to be; how Koko would completely fail to react to it in the long term; and if it were poss...

 
 
Madoka Third Movie photo

Third Madoka film to have English subs in Japan

Are you getting Madoka withdrawal symptoms? Want something to cure that itch? Well, assuming you've got some money to play with, you could consider putting in a pre-order for the Japanese release of the third movie, Puella Magi Madoka...

 
 
Chu2koi! Ren photo

First Impressions: Chuunibyou demo Koi ga Shitai! Ren

Wonderful, wonderful Chuunibyou, what a surprise conclusion to 2012's slate of anime you were. It's no secret that I'm quite fussy with the shows that KyoAni pumps out, but this slice-of-life/science fiction/romance/comedy was gripping from...

 
 
FI: Seitokai Yakuindomo* photo

First Impressions: Seitokai Yakuindomo*

It's been almost four years since the original Seitokai Yakuindomo, an anime that aired back when I was still studying at university. This particular anime was shown in one of the societies I was attending, among several others. Gettin...

 
 
Chūnibyō leaked photo

New Chūnibyō's first episode leaked online

In an all to familiar story, the first episode of Chūnibyō demo Koi ga Shitai! Ren was leaked before its official debut. It appeared briefly on tv.sohu.com, a region locked and Chinese-owned website, rather than being a slip-...

 
 
Sengoku Basara 4 photo

Put ya guns on for this Sengoku Basara 4 trailer

Oh, how I miss the Sengoku Basara anime. It was the ultimate fusion of real-life history and utter lunacy, where they weren't afraid to pit a man with six swords up against giant robots, mini-guns or tank-ships. We even managed to get one ...

 
 
Little Busters! photo

Final Impressions: Little Busters! Refrain

I commented several times that I didn't think that Little Busters! Refrain would wrap up completely within thirteen episodes. In fact, the midpoint of the series was moving at such a sluggish pace that it seemed all would be revealed in a m...

Nibutani sports a new look in the new season of Chūnibyō

We'll finally get our mitts on the new season of Chuunibyou demo Koi ga Shitai! in just a weeks time on the 9th of January, so be prepared for more butt-wiggling and hair-twirling action. KyoAni has recently updated the official websit...
