First Impressions: Sailor Moon Crystal

I never thought I'd be on the verge of tears after watching Usagi Tsukino's very first transformation into the pretty soldier of love and justice for the umpteenth time, but here I sit wiping tears away and swallowing back that funny feelin...

 
 
World End Economica photo

Review: World End Economica Episode 1

[Originally posted at Destructoid.] Visual novels are a finicky medium. It's difficult enough to drum up interest because of their exotic origins, and harder still to find an audience due to their nature -- it's a bunch of reading. And you ...

 
 
JBA: All-Star Battle photo

Review: JoJo's Bizarre Adventure: All-Star Battle

[As originally posted at Destructoid.] How do you like your fighting games? Personally, I like mine with a sizable dose of pop culture references and eye-melting color palettes infused with a healthy dose of humor that's hilariously self-...

 
 
 

CM Corner 004: Parting is Such Sweet Sorrow

Hey guys, This is a bit of a somber CM Corner today, as everyone is leaving and my heart feels heavy to see some of my favorite editors leaving after the beginning of a promising future for Japanator was established under our fearless lea...

Sailor Moon Crystal is getting a 26-episode run

I'm still super worried that Sailor Moon Crystal is going to be a Flash series, but Toei Animation's confirmation with ANN that it will run across 26 episodes makes me feel a tiny bit better. It's going to stream worldwide every other week ...

 
 
 
Project Z photo

Taito's 'Project Z' endeavor is actually a Left 4 Dead game

[As originally posted at Destructoid.] Left 4 Dead in Japanese arcades? It's more likely than you think. Actually, it's definitely going to happen. Taito's been teasing a "Project Z" for some time now for its Nesica arcade system...

 
 
 
 
Evangelion x Transformers photo

Evangelion meets Transformers with Takara Tomy figure repaint

I love Neon Genesis Evangelion, and Transformers are obviously awesome. What happens when you combine the two? An awesome repaint of the Takara Tomy Masterpiece MP-10 Optimus Prime done up like EVA Unit-01. Planet Iacon found the insert pic...

Pick up Sailor Moon tribute album on vinyl June 25

It's Brittany again with another dose of Sailor Moon merchandising to populate the Japanator Sailor Moon tag! I kid, but hey, it's kind of true! Today I bring news and good fortune about the Sailor Moon 20th Anniversary Tribute Album going ...

 
 
Monster Hunter photo

Shred with this ridiculous Monster Hunter guitar

[As originally posted at Destructoid.] My, how time flies. Capcom's indomitable Monster Hunter series has been around for ten years now, and to celebrate its tenth anniversary, Capcom has teamed up with ESP Guitars ...

 
 
JoJo's Bizarre Adventure photo

You can't even handle these JoJo Rubik's Cubes

I'm no good with Rubik's Cubes, but these JoJo's Bizarre Adventure cubes aren't meant to be played with anyway. Megahouse's "JoJo’s Bizarre Cube Part 1: Phantom Blood” and “JoJo’s Bizarre Cube Part 2: Battle Tendency...

 
 
Candy Crush Saga photo

Candy Crush has a bizarro nationwide ad campaign in Japan

[As originally posted at Destructoid.] Candy Crush Saga is coming to Japan in a big way, as developer King has prepared a slew of rather bizarre commercials for its freakishly addictive mobile puzzler. With King having opened an ...

Annotated Anime: Brynhildr in the Darkness Episode 2

After the weirdness of the first episode of Brynhildr, it finally fins a groove of its own, and I'm pleased to see a growing familiarity between Elfen Lied (a personal favorite series of mine) and this show, especially in the character desi...

 
 
Omori photo

Omocat's Omori Kickstarter is retro-fabulous

[As originally posted at Destructoid.] Omocat is a stellar artist and kindred spirit, and she's responsible for some excellent art and a particularly badass jacket that I want to wear. She's also hard at work creating a ...

 
 
 
Madoka Magica photo

These Madoka Magica light-up Soul Gems are gorgeous

You know, as much as I enjoyed Madoka Magica, it's one series I haven't purchased any merchandise from. There's such a huge sampling of stuff, too. But I haven't even seen any of the films or the tie-in material, so I guess that makes sense...

 
 
FI: Kamigami no Asobi  photo

First Impressions: Kamigami no Asobi

Kamigami no Asobi is a lively reverse-harem series based on the visual novel of the same name, and if it ends up anything like the Hakuoki series, it should be a treat to follow. It's got everything: gorgeous boys (for everyone into that), ...

Juice up your USB devices with Sailor Moon AC chargers

Now that I'm an adult and I have some disposable income if I decide I don't want to eat or wear clothes, there's a whole wealth of Sailor Moon stuff out there for me to buy and then wallow in when it inevitably winds up on my bedroom floor,...

The Dose: HALCALI

"Oh no, they let Brittany do The Dose? SAVE US!"  Chill. I'm only doing it for one day. You can deal with that, surely. Ohaaa lucky~! I've got an oldie but a goodie from duo HALCALI, a pretty chill tune that'll get you grooving in you...

 
 
Steins;Gate photo

Review: Steins;Gate

[As originally posted at Destructoid.] Time travel is infinitely more interesting once you leave the trappings of the TARDIS or any one of those familiar (some would say hackneyed) science fiction mainstays behind. Steins;Gate, the vis...

 
 
Ao Haru Ride photo

Shoujo series Ao Haru Ride receives first promo video

You guys know me. I love horror and shoujo manga, and all kinds of stuff in between. I hadn't heard of Ao Haru Ride, however,it looks like something I might want to tune into, especially given the art style. The official site for the anime...

 
 
Attack on Titan photo

Attack on Titan inevitably headed to Toonami on May 3

I called this a few episodes into Attack on Titan when I watched it during its original run at Crunchyroll, but FUNimation has just made it official: Attack on Titan will be airing on Toonami beginning Saturday, May 3rd. If you've skipped ...

Knights of Sidonia Blu-rays releasing with additional angles

Sci-fi anime Knights of Sidonia is already set for a Blu-ray release in Japan on May 28. While the disc will contain only the first two episodes, it's going to be packing additional angles fo certain scenes. Because it's digitally animated...

Ken Sugimori Works art book releasing May 27

Ken Sugimori's original Pokémon designs are what I grew up with, and I truly dig his art style. I'm pleased that he's releasing his first art book ever on May 27th, even though that fact is a little difficult to believe. How is it th...

 
 
Gurren Lagann photo

Gurren Lagann stage play hitting Tokyo in October

Just who the hell do you think Kamina is? Do you think he'd star in a Gurren Lagann stage play adaptation? I think he'd want that, don't you? Good thing, because Office Endless announced plans for Tengen Toppa Gurren Lagann -Engeki-hen-, to...

 
 
Lady Jewelpet photo

First Impressions: Lady Jewelpet

It's been a while since I got started with a sugary-sweet bit of shoujo. There's Happiness Charge PreCure, but even that has a balance of action and life lessons to go along with its girlish charm. Lady Jewelpet is all girly, all the time. ...

 
 
Kanojo ga Flag photo

First Impressions: Kanojo ga Flag wo Oraretara

Last season, I was pretty into Noucome, a series that forced the protagonist to randomly choose from three actions to take during daily life. They ranged from bizarre to extreme, and caused the lead a whole bunch of undue stress. The "Absol...

HAAAY~! <3 I'm Brittany, and I'm the resident creeper, er, community manager over here at Jtor. I'm here to make your experience even more awesome than usual, and If that means exposing you to J-horror in near-deadly doses, then I shall.

Have a pressing question? A suggestion? Send me a PM, email me, or tweet me! Can't wait? Feel free to contact me on AIM at JtorBrittany.


Brittany Vincent is an accomplished video game and freelance entertainment writer whose work has been featured in esteemed publications and online venues like G4TV.com, Joystiq, Complex, IGN, GamesRadar, Slide To Play, Wizard World, Kotaku, C&G Magazine, Gamezebo, GameSpot, and more. She’s been writing professionally for five years and enjoys combining her lifelong love of gaming and extensive video game knowledge with her passion for the written word.

She also enjoys writing for horror publications like Rue Morgue, Bloody Disgusting, and Dread Central. Over the past few years, she’s also worked with PR representatives to build relationships and obtain review products for her work, having managed her own gaming website and small teams to attend video game conventions such as PAX East in 2010 and E3 in 2011. In addition, she is now the community manager at Japanator.

When her bank account, eyes, and social life aren’t suffering from grueling hours of sweaty-palmed gaming and feverish scribbling, she may be found in the wild viewing anime or poring through manga, mingling in online forums, and working to hone her craft. Simple sleep or paralysis is not enough to catch her, though. No, a Master Ball may be in order. Until her dying breath she’ll be wielding a BFG made entirely of killer drive and ambition while stamping out stereotypes and passing on the frivolity of console wars. So, are you ready? Game on — no button mashing allowed.
