Review: Death Note: The Omega Edition

Until recently I didn't have much interest in buying anime box sets. They were just too expensive, and I had few aside from ToraDora! and Dragon Ball Z.  Death Note: The Omega Edition is also pretty expensive, but makes a convinci...

Japanator Unboxes: Death Note: The Omega Edition Blu-ray Set

Get a golden Bearguy III with second Gundam BF Blu-ray

As you may have read, I'm quite fond of Gundam Build Fighters. The show is pure fun and knows how to craft some amazing battles from a fairly silly premise. That said, it's a glorified gunpla commercial. Well, you can argue that every Gunda...

Viz to put out K as an A-grade Blu-ray combo pack

Much as I've embraced our digital media future, I still have a soft spot in my heart for sweet physical extras. After all, I did once buy a copy of Sakura Taisen that I didn't have a machine for just to get a hilarious-looking steampun...

Review: Zetman

Even though I’m the guy at Japanator that watches toku shows, my experience with superhero stories in general is below average. While I’ve kept up with many of the cartoons and films that are based off of DC and Marvel’s c...

Review: Akira 25th Anniversary Edition

If you ask most people who grew up in the late 80s/early 90s what anime was, they’d probably say Akira. This film impacted not only the geeks and nerds, but had the sort of cross-over appeal that most shows don’t reach now. It w...
