When in Japan, Enjoy Its Fabulous World of Anime

Following Anime (アニメ - Japanese animation) and Manga (漫画 - Japanese comics) has become a way of life in Japan. It all started with the manga, but as manga started becoming famous, the natural progression was for them to transcen...

It is easy to get caught up in a controversy.  You have your closely guarded opinion /belief and the other person reciprocates with an opposing one.  Soon it devolves into a shouting match/ flame war.  I was asked to share my...


Anime Expo 2016 is full of guests you should see

Largest industry showing yet

This weekend starts Anime Expo 2016 out in Los Angeles. It's nuts.  A good anime convention not only provides a healthy crowd turnout and lots of things for the attendees to do, but also a wide variety of guests and events. Anime ...



Recently I had to defend my anime choice to someone whom I considered in the same genre appreciation as me.  We differed on opinion and that is it.  We still both like the same genre (for different reasons) but now I appreciate th...

The second season

So I just so happened to learn that two shows that I had thought down for the count received a second season.  I figured since they had not received a second season in years (yes multiple years) that they were as good as written o...


oh, new!

So yes I did finish all 8* seasons of Inuyasha.  Before you say how bad a show that was with repetitive story line (they fight the same 2 villains twice) imho it was a trip down memory lane and a good one at that.  It will go...


Zetta Reviews: XBLAZE: Code Embryo (PSV)

It is a rare moment where I take issue with animu tropes. Really, really rare. If you talk to me about this kind of thing or read my blogs regularly enough, you probably know that already, but so we can be clear on this, and I admit it is l...


Ya Blew It, Umaru

If you're on Japanator, you likely know something or two about Himouto! Umaru-chan. If not, here's the rundown: Umaru is your cliche anime girl who's good at everything in school, be it classes, sports, or just looking fine. However, Umaru ...


Judge An Anime By It's Opening

This week I didn't watch GANGSTA (which requires full caps as characters constantly yell this) and I wish I'd never seen this. Tears are falling off my face like a waterfall...of salt...But that's not to say it's bad. Not really. It's som...


stuck in a rut

So what do you do when even you are tired of Hero A chewing through his/ or her enemies towards yet another city on their way towards their ultimate goal in a way too many season arc? Take a break. Sometimes you had all this great stuff p...


Symphogear, we need to talk

On paper, Symphogear seems like it should be a really great new IP. You've got a likeable cast of heroines with a group of popular and talented voice actresses backing them up, a premise that lets viewers listen to this voice talent sing...


The Masked Zetta Arrives!

There's an unfortunate side effect of deciding not to post content on a site until you do a proper introduction there: That is, of course, not being able to post on said site until you write said proper intro to your liking. Unfortunately...


Old anime

I am currently watching an old but good anime- Cat’s eye. Rui, Hitomi, and Ai Kisugi are three sisters who own and operate Cat's Eye café directly across from the Inunari police station. Hitomi is the fiancée of Toshi Utsumi the detec...

School Rumble, it's Impact, and Aftermath

I am known as Mo. I started a mission that began with a Youtube channel called “Jin Kobayashi Please Hear Me” and have been working very hard to get the attention of the mangaka Jin Kobayashi, the creator of the phenomenal manga and ani...


This needs to stop: schoolgirls for sale in Japan

We, Japanator visitors, users and even the staff members I assume, are fans of manga, anime and japanese videogames. Some of us envision Japan as being a land full of those things that make us happy, and thus a kind of "promised land for o...

Kizumonogatari films 1+2 are technically marvellous and brilliant adaptation of the highlights from the source Despite the Monogatari origins it is not beginner A lot of Monogatari staples are omitted/muted and has more horror elements
