This needs to stop: schoolgirls for sale in Japan

We, Japanator visitors, users and even the staff members I assume, are fans of manga, anime and japanese videogames. Some of us envision Japan as being a land full of those things that make us happy, and thus a kind of "promised land for o...

 
 
 
 

The most japanese of all japanese bands

It happened little by little through the years, thanks to anime, manga, games, movies, music, food, the internet. Japanese culture is spread all over the world, gathering more fans every day. They even came up with a specific term to descr...

 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 

Rejected to the end: Final Impressions on Noragami

I just gave my Final Impressions on Witch Craft Works the other day, and I feel that show shares some similarities with Noragami: both had huge potential, quality animation and interesting characters, but failed to deliver in their ending...

 
 
 
 
 
 

Rejected to the end: Final Impressions on Log Horizon

Players trapped in the game world. This premise is older than Tibia. Ok, maybe not that old, but it has been done countless times, and with the biggest recent success in this genre being Sword Art Online, comparisons are inevitable. But b...

 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 

An ending song that really should be an opening

Our fellow Japanator citizen Red Veron worded it better than I can, so I'll quote him here: "while anime openings have always gotten us pumped up and excited for a show, endings have always been there to help us wind down and/or get us ex...

 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 

jTunes - Let Goosehouse make your day

Generally, I'm not a big fan of covers. But when the group Goosehouse gather in front of a camera to record their several covers, it's something completely different from what we commonly see from cover videos on Youtube. They pick well k...

 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 

My Favorite Naruto Opening

People seem to either love or hate Naruto. I went through both phases. Back in the day, I was a huge Naruto fan. I started watching the anime and couldn't stop, blazing through the 80+ episodes at the time within a week, maybe, and thrill...

 
 
 
 
 
 

Winter is not so bad after all

Quick blog this time, I promise. Just passing by to say I'm enjoying this season more than the "strong" Fall season everyone talked about. For this statement, I'm not taking in consideration Ippo, Magi and Log Horizon, because they continue...

 
 
 
 

My Favorite Overlooked Anime Opening

Shoujo S could've been a memorable part of my life. The moment when you discover one of your favorite bands, go through their whole discography, fall in love with their work and swear to yourself to cross the ocean to see them perform liv...

 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 

My Favorite Anime Openings for Shows I Didn't Like

Do you know a way to attract people's attention to your posts? Yes, polemic! My hate post got much more attention than any of my other ones where I share what I love, so from now on, I will continue to bring you all the hate in the world!...

 
 
 
 

Staff's Rejects! Week 13 on Ippo and Log Horizon

Yeah, right, "week 13". This time, we have Ippo coming back with style, but... where's Magi?! I'll keep the numbers going as it is, because it's not my fault Ippo and Magi are taking breaks so often. At least, we have Log Horizon with a p...

2014, me and anime

Happy New Year, everyone! It's the first hours of 2014, I just came back from the usual family reunion where we eat, see the fireworks, eat, drink, talk bad things about the people who are not present, and eat some more. I decided to writ...

 
 
 
 

jTunes - Overturn The Doom with the lovely BRIDEAR

Phew! I let out so much hate flow through me when I wrote my entry for december's Monthly Musings, that I'm already thinking of changing my name to Darth-something! Before I end up with a Hollow mask or going all emo like Sasuke, let's ch...

 
 
 
 

Staff's Rejects! Week 12 on Magi and Log Horizon

Ippo is still warming up before fighting against Sawamura, so this week we still don't have a new episode. That, or people involved in Ippo's production are really slow. I mean, come on, the manga already takes forever to be released, the...

 
 
 
 

jTunes - SCANDAL is a gift to the world

[EDIT: As the video I posted before got removed, watch the gorgeous PV for Kagen no Tsuki instead!] Confession time: years ago, when I first heard Shoujo S as Bleach's OP, I looked at SCANDAL and thought to myself something that went lik...

 
 
 
 

jTunes - Eyes and ears on new band MUSH&Co

Talent is everywhere, just waiting to be discovered. It's aways great to see new bands being born, and recently, MUSH&Co released their debut single, Ashita mo, one of the theme songs for the movie adaptation of the manga Kanojo wa Uso o ...

 
 
 
 

Staff's Rejects! Week 11 on Magi and Log Horizon

We have 100% less punches this week and the next, as Ippo is taking a end-of-the-year vacation. But there's no reason to fret, since Magi and Log Horizon delivered two excellent episodes, setting up big events that are about to start, so ...
