Whenever a franchise does its best to change things up, I'm always down for seeing how they execute these new elements. With December among us, the next Super Sentai series, Uchu Sentai Kyuranger, has unveiled its designs, and the upcoming ...

 
 
Zoids photo

We're getting a new Zoids project soon

Zoids is one of those anime that I remember watching every episode of, but I only can recall about ten percent of it. Which means that my nostalgia-riddled brain also only remembers the good parts, like the super cool Liger Zero fighting ot...

This ad for a Unicorn Gundam model goes full Psycho (Frame)

I've never been that much into model-making, Gundam or otherwise, so I've never had much of a reason to pay attention to commercials for the things. Then again, if they're all as cool as Bandai's new ad for an upcoming 1/60th-scale Pe...

Make some egg... pudding?

After watching a bunch of British TV show on the BBC I became a bit confused to what pudding is. Growing up, it was always that delicious milky stuff that Bill Cosby was hustling to kids. You'd find it in chocolate or vanilla, and in aweso...

PSA: Nendo Card Captor Sakura up for preorder!

Ever since the Nendoroid concept was a thing, I have wondered which anime characters would make a great Nendo. The whole miniature-super-deformed style made normally average looking things really cute, and already very cute things super cut...

Gunpla Banzai: Barnes & Noble selling Gunpla kits

It's actually funny: For as much access as North American anime fans have to Japan's pop culture output these days, there really are some things that are still difficult to find over there. For example, it's easy to get your eyeballs on lic...

Get a kick out of these amazing felt dolls

These Kill la Kill Lego figures are the best

The Internet can be a wonderful place sometimes, and getting to see characters from Kill la Kill crafted out of the finest Danish plastic reassures me on this. Not only do we have a pretty faithful Mako, but we have a Kamui Senketsu mode Ry...

Snore the afternoon away on a Snorlax cushion

Nothing is more annoying than finding your path blocked by a sleeping Snorlax, but thanks to the folks at Banpresto, you won't need a Poké Flute to snag one of these comfy cushions. Instead, all you have to do is pre-order one from T...

Sword Art Online weapon replicas for sale

New Sword Art Online weapons are being made, but they're mini! Asuna's Lambent Light rapier was the first one to be picked, and it's only 15cm! Although her rapier is the only one available so far, I'm sure Kirito's Elucidator will be ...

McDonald's Japan doesn't care that it's the Year of Luigi
