Veteran voice actress Yuko Mizutani passes away

Deaths may be a fact of life, but it's always sad when someone is taken too soon. That's the case for Japanese voice actress Yuko Mizutani, a veteran of Japan's voice acting scene who was best known for playing Sakiko Sakura, from the long-...

Uh-oh: Anime Expo could be harmed by sudden regulations

I think we can all agree that youths need protection from creeps and other predators, but what's happening at this year's Anime Expo in the name of protecting the children seems to be a bit...undesirable. Last week, the Society for the...

 
 
Persona 5 photo

So I translated that new Persona 5 trailer

It took the newest trailer for Persona 5 to make me break my self-imposed media blackout about the game. After all, I already knew I wanted the damn thing, so I didn't need any extra convincing. But I did watch it, and it was awesome. Howev...

Wait, what? Tenchi Muyo to get a fourth season

File this one under "Hold on, let me check what year it is", because Tenchi Muyo! is set to be A Thing again!  Well, that's not entirely fair. Fans of one of the most influential harem anime of modern times haven't exactly been la...

Meet the Grave Sinners of Valkyria: Azure Revolution

It's been a while since we last heard from Valkyria: Azure Revolution, Sega's PS4 follow-up to one of the PS3's (and PSP's) best games, Valkyria Chronicles. Now the company's loosening the tap a bit as the game's planned late-2016 release d...

 
 
 
Star Fox Zero photo

Behold the glory of the Star Fox Zero anime

Star Fox is back, folks! And it seems back in a way that explicitly recalls the glory days of SNES-based 3D games and peppy animal-people bloodlessly fighting other animal-people. If nothing else, that Saturday morning cartoon vibe is what...

 
 
 
 
Trillion PS Vita Review photo

Review: Trillion: God of Destruction

Danganronpa 2 photo

Hello, Goodbye Despair: Danganronpa 2 gets a PC port

The Danganronpa games are fantastic. Stylish, tense, and utterly engrossing, they're easily among my favorite visual novels, and I recommend that everyone play them. Thankfully, that just got a lot easier, as people won't have to buy a Play...

Annotated Anime: Shouwa Genroku Rakugo Shinjuu episodes 4-6

The last time we checked in on Shouwa Rakugo, it was shaping up to be one of the best (or at least, most grown-up) anime series to air in years. Anime fans looking for more mature, grounded plotting and complex character work were surprised...

Rejoice, ninja fans, because Naruto has come to Steam! And no, I'm not referring to the bountiful slate of Ultimate Ninja Storm releases, but instead to a raftload of honest-to-goodness anime, courtesy of Viz Media. The ...

Annotated Anime: GATE episodes 13-16

The last time we checked in with GATE, A-1 Pictures' chronicle of the Japan's encounter with nothing less than an entire other world, I noted that the show was considerably less, well...controversial than I had been led to believe by some f...
