Ichigo Mashimaro x K-ON = too much moe to handle

Weekend Japanatainment: Pink spandex, edition!

Pink spandex reminds me of Buu, one of the best villains of Dragon Ball Z. However, I always thought Freeza was a little bit cooler (see what I did there?) Even when he was just a torso, he still traveled halfway across the universe just ...

Fun Friday AMVs: Go the distance

Weekend Japanatainment: Rainbow Road edition!

Fun Friday AMV: Is Haruhi Black or White??
