It's awesome Japanese commercial time!

Our favorite grumpy shiba-inu, Otousan graces us with his presence, Madoka gets a live-action, and I get hungry for chocolate snacks. I don't think my brain could handle much more. I also have an incredibly twisted desire for curry.

A giant meteor has flipped Otou-san upside down!

Otou-san? Otou-san? Are you alright? Clearly, the giant meteor that's heading towards Earth has you all flustered. It certainly doesn't help that the family's meatballs are suddenly up and disappearing! The video after the jump will explain...

Otousan hates the new guy; I love the new pots

HAHAH! These Softbank commercials keep on getting better and better. Kai-kun is seriously becoming a better actor with age. His portrayal of a pissed off Otousan is spot-on here.I love how angry he is. He doesn't like what's going...

ANN apologizes for OreImo-gate, suspends its streams

Ouch. If you didn't know it yet, the incident Lauren has dubbed "OreImo-gate" happened. While simulcast leaks aren't exactly new, The Anime News Network was a relatively new entry into the field. As such, some face-saving was in o...

Surf's up for Otousan in newest SoftBank CM

Otousan > Cody Maverick. Since the precursory evolutions of the modern-day surfboard in the 50s and 60s, people have been trying to get dogs to surf. Sometimes it's cool, and sometimes it borders upon retarded. Yet, when one takes a belo...

Otousan is in the way in the newest Softbank CM

I have to admit that I am a complete and total sucker for anything featuring Otousan. Since he is featured in all of Softbank's commericals, that makes me addicted to those too. In the latest one, he gets in the way as mom and Aya try to ha...

HNNNGGGG: Otousan wears a school uniform

I knew it was only a matter of time before Softbank put our favorite dog in a school uniform. It has happened, and it was worth the wait. Actually, they also put Okasan in uniform. It looks like the two are on a high school date, enjoying a...

Otousan goes bowling, gets White Day candy

Otousan bowling. How cute is that?As you see above, he uses the hand blower to cool his paws off. The SoftBank commercial has just started and I almost cannot handle the cute. It gets better: watch on as he shines his bowling ball. And the ...

Otousan visits his mom, forced to look at his yearbook

I've always wondered what Otou-san's parents look like. After all, he is a talking dog. Would his parents be Shiba Inu as well? No, of course not. We ran into Otou-san's mother in this latest journey, where in a private moment, Otou-san and...

Who wants Otousan speakers? Everyone.

Remember that ridiculous Softbank commerical with Quentin Tarantino? The one with the Otousan cellphone speaker that Dale was admiring (frothing) over? Well, the speaker is now real. Much like the Otousan slippers that squeal "Painful!...

Quentin Tarantino takes on Softbank and Otousan

Of all people to join the Softbank family as that "crazy uncle," I did not expect Quentin Tarantino to be that man. While I'm not a huge fan of the man's works, I was really impressed with Inglorious Basterds and am excited to see...

Otousan meets Nico Nico, hilarity ensues

I know I've already posted a video today, but I couldn't help myself. I can't really sum it up in words, so you're just going to have to trust me when I say it's nothing short of epic. It also reminds me of a certain Lucky Star video Brad p...

Otousan wimpers as Japan doesn't care about the Jesus Phone S
