I wish I could be half the man Potato-dono was. Making curry is not for the weak of heart.


These Sengoku Basara 2 trailers are way too short

These 15-second commercials for the upcoming season of Sengoku Basara do little to quench my thirst,  but I suppose we'll just have to make due. They don't really provide any information, aside from the whole &...

Man Day: Why I am better for Kamina than Yoko

Ah, Kamina. There is nothing more GAR than an image of your face. I know that the flame that burns twice as bright usually only burns half as long, as that old adage certainly applies to you. Usually, I find myself drawn to the more feminin...


JapanaTen: Ten shows you that teach you how to be a man

"Being a man" is not an easy thing to do. There's no real guide to how to be an upright citizen, how to honor and care for your one true love, or what to do when your back is up against the wall. We have to discover it for ourselv...

Master Asia's hot-blooded men gallery

JapanaTen: Ten most spineless male protagonists

The spineless male protagonist. His indecision or ability to do things for himself is a surefire way to stretch a storyline on and on and on. How else would stories like To Love-ru or Love Hina go on for as long as they did? If the protagon...

Tuesday Otaku Debate: Masamune Date vs Yukimura Sanada
