Licensing GET: Bandai grabs Nichijou, Gosick, more Geass

In what is doubtless the most significant news of this year's Otakon for people who like Victorian-era lolis, non sequiturial anime, or Code Geass, Bandai has announced its licensing of three such things. Rejoice! First, they announced thei...


Bandai Visual releasing a lot of Gundam Blu-rays in Japan

Even if they cost an arm and a leg, Bandai Visual has been doing a great job at getting some of its anime out on Blu-ray with excellent transfers, most notably each subsequent episode of Gundam Unicorn. It looks like the trend will continue...


Design a Dark Souls shield to cower behind

If Dark Souls is anything like Demon's Souls (spoiler: it's a lot like Demon's Souls), you'll probably spend a lot of time cringing behind a shield, a flimsy piece of metal the only thing between you and untold horrors waiting (or actively ...


The latest Dark Souls visuals will leave you cowering

Licensing GET: Bandai grabs Star Driver

Bandai bringing Gundam 00, Haruhi movies to US Blu-ray

While it was no surprise that Bandai announced at Sakuracon that they're going to release Mobile Suit Gundam 00: Awakening of the Trailblazer on DVD, it was pretty big news that the movie is also going to hit Blu-ray as well. Typically sque...


Here's the Super Sentai game you've always wanted

Being a Power Ranger. That was the dream of many a pre-teen boy, including mine. Thankfully, as a grown man I don't need to injure myself imitating ranger stunts anymore. Now I can just ruin my eyes playing video games, like the upcoming Su...

New Gods Eater Burst trailer features a teddy bear suit

D3's PSP-destined Monster Hunter-killer, Gods Eater Burst, as annoyingly renamed as it is, is looking good, especially for players who feel that the people killing big monsters with big weapons should have better hair as they do it.Now a ne...


Oh hey, a Power Rangers: Samurai game is in the works

Yeah, that's right, "Power Rangers: Samurai", and not Samurai Sentai Shinkenger, which means that Namco Bandai and Saban Brand's new game will be based on the western version of the Super Sentai franchise. Not to say that the game...

Japanese Lucky Star BDs to have English Dubs, Subs

A common complaint I hear among my circle of anime friends is the lack of good anime blu-ray, especially shows owned/licensed by Bandai. I also find myself agreeing with their sentiments, as I'd prefer to own shows like Haruhi, Gundam 00 an...


First look at the Rurouni Kenshin: Saisen trailer for PSP

Remember wayyyy back in November when I first told all of you about the new Ruroni Kenshin: Saisen game for the PSP? Finally we get to see a trailer from the Jump Festa event! This game seems to be a pretty standard fighter t...

Take a minute to enjoy the Gundam Unicorn 3 trailer

NYAF '10: Bandai talks about Gundam, more Gundam, no duh

Watch the Disappearance of Haruhi Suzumiya in...Hawaii?

Hawaii, a non-continental state and my birthplace, is oft-ignored, I've found. Hawaiians have to pay extra to get stuff mailed to them, they aren't eligible for most contests, and what do they get in exchange? An endless flood of tourists t...


Crunchyroll's 1st anime DVD available through Bandai

Haven't been crying enough lately?Change that by picking up the ultra-sad 2007 anime film 5 Centimeters Per Second, now conveniently available from the Bandai store. The DVD sells for $24.95. This is Crunchyroll's first licensed DVD, and i...


Crunchyroll licensing Shinkai's 5cm per second! Buy it!

Makoto Shinkai's an anime auteur easily on par with the likes of Miyazaki and Oshii. His works are a bright spot of complexity and depth in an industry that many perceive to be in creative downfall, soon to be drowned in a sea of moe, GAR a...


Balticon '10: Bandai brings you more Code Geass

I really love Code Geass and personally think it's one of the better series of more recent anime. Along with the show, Code Geass also has several volumes of manga, and that's what Bandai's sinking its teeth into! Robert Napton, the No...


Otakon '10: Bandai licenses Sora Kake Girl

Last night, the whole staff trekked out to the Bandai Entertainment After Dark panel, which has become the most fun industry panel, in my mind. The show has limited seating, Bandai gives out prizes, and Rob Napton freaks out that I shaved m...


SDCC 10: Bandai Visual panel impressions

I was all over the place today, but thankfully I had a chance to drop by the Bandai Visual panel. I had heard that they had planned several announcements, though I had wondered why they decided to make those announcements here when they cou...

AX 10: Notes from Bandai's panel

So I've got some notes from the Bandai's panel today. We were a bit late arriving to the convention -- thanks, Los Angeles, for the awesome traffic -- so we missed the first few minutes of the panel. That said, we didn't miss much. The only...

Hoo-boy.Bandai, better known as Moe Entertainment, has gone ahead and bit the bullet: they licensed K-ON!. Announced at their Anime Expo panel, Bandai says that they've licensed only the first season, not K-ON!!, and are currently up in the...


Oh hey, here's how much you'll pay for Haruhi S2 DVDs

Care to buy fourteen episodes of high-end anime? How about buying seven episodes instead? You might be surprised, but those two questions are inseparably intertwined, for the subject at hand is The Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya, season two....


A buttload of ninjas are in Naruto Ultimate Ninja Storm 2

A Legend of the Galactic Heroes video game?! DO WANT

Nebs spotted an interesting little item over at the Bandai online store: a 45rpm vinyl of "Hare Hare Yukai," from The Melancholy of Suzumiya Haruhi. The item was on sale in Japan since back in 2007, but it surprises me that the re...

It's official: to be successful in Japan, all PSP games (and some games on other platforms) must find a way to rip off Monster Hunter. That formula of Ad Hoc cooperative monster-killing has proven so successful that Namco Bandai has decided...


Another Century's Episode R probably not coming here too

Sure, you've got the evergreen Super Robot Taisen games, but those games don't take themselves seriously enough. They've got all kinds of unnecessary things like characters and strategy and stories. Thankfully, the masters of robot mashups ...
