Take a peek at Bayonetta: Bloody Fate's storyboards

Gonzo is making a Bayonetta movie, didn't you hear? You know what that means: time to run in terror! Ok, fine, maybe Gonzo isn't that bad, but they don't exactly have a stellar track record with their anime adaptions of video games. That sa...

Hair Wild: Bayonetta Bloody Fate gets a trailer

I like Bayonetta. I never managed to finish the game, due to the PS3 version being quite busted at the time, but what I played was a character action game with one of the most distinct characters you could ask for.With her crazy hair, sexy...

Friday Night Fights: Shana vs Ayano

Friday Night Fights: Clash of the Alucards

*ding, ding, ding* It's Over! Captain Falcon may be a great bounty hunter -- his Falcon Punch was able to cause a galaxy sized explosion, but this is a race that we're talking about. JP on the other hand is willing to do whatever it takes t...


Kimi no Iru Machi getting an anime adaptation

The Akiba reports that Kimi no Iru Machi, a manga/story by the same creator of Suzuka, which has only had a couple of OVAs will now be adapted until a full-on show. There aren't really any details further than that, though. We're not s...


Turbulence: FUNi's Last Exile FAM box sets get delayed

Well, it looks like FUNimation's release of Last Exile - FAM, The Silver Wing took a wrong turn off of the designated flight path. But no need to fear, since they are only facing a minor delay in FAM's release date.  Instead of arrivin...


All clear: Last Exile FAM's English staff makes a landing

I remember back in high school when I was exposed to the first episode of the original Last Exile series during an anime showing at the after school anime club. And one thing that I enjoyed out of the series was how they had a bun...


First Impressions: Last Exile -Fam, The Silver Wing-

Gonzo is kind of an on-going joke in the anime community. A joke that I feel is a bit too harsh, but a joke nonetheless. The original Last Exile is thought to be one of their last greatest shows (and is by far my favorite Gonzo produced ani...


The man who designed Hatsune Miku is making an anime

A lot of factors contribute to the success of Hatsune Miku and the whole Vocaloid thing, but one of the most critical was Hatsune Miku herself, as a character. Hers was the face those many amateur composers wrote their songs and music for, ...


First Impressions: Nyanpire

When I first saw the preview of Nyanpire, I thought it looked like a cutesy show meant to promote a cutesy mascot to sell some cutesy merchandise. While I'm pretty sure this is the case (and there's nothing wrong with that), it's also a pre...


Enjoy this new Last Exile PV, it has vanships and stuff

A lot of people were excited to hear about the new Last Exile sequel when it was announced last February as Last Exile ~Fam, the Silver Wing~, and now, those same people can rejoice once again thanks to a new PV that was released,...


Later this year, Last Exile ~Fam, the Silver Wing~

I watched the original series Last Exile (2003) last year for the first time and I really, really enjoyed it. Naturally, I am more than delighted by the news that eight years later, Gonzo is producing a new series with a new story altogethe...


Japanator (Doesn't) Recommend: Linebarrels of Iron

I like to consider myself a fan of mecha anime. Whether it's a super robot show or a "realistic" robot show, I'm willing to forgive certain tropes of the genre, such as young kids piloting weapons of war, if the action is good and...


Man arrested for insider trading on Gonzo stock

Scandal! It seems that just today 49-year-old Takeshi Matsubara was arrested for allegedly doing insider trading back in 2006-2007 on stocks of Gonzo. According to the report, Matsubara was arrested for, "having traded shares in an ani...

Mass murderer Jason Voorhees, already famous for his anime chainsaw sculptures, has victimized yet another tree in pursuit of fine art. This time, he immortalized Nodoka Haramura of Saki, in her angelic form. He even managed to carve indivi...

Moe Moe Buddhism!

Do you remember the Shinto shrine that experienced a sudden surge in popularity because of Lucky Star? Well, it appears that the Ryohoji Buddhist temple near Tokyo has decided to go one better... with a full-blown catgirl maid cafe.Last May...


First Impressions: Kiddy Girl-and

Summary: Maid cafe antics abound, coupled with panties jokes and slapstick. My memories of the original Kiddy Grade have been ruined.The original Kiddy Grade was a futuristic female buddy cop anime, featuring plenty of fanservice mixed with...


Japanator Recommends: Romeo x Juliet part 2

Last time I wrote a recommendation for this series, it was met with some resistance. I'm not really sure why either. Nobody really went out of their way to explain what they didn't like about it. It seemed as though they had simply "he...


Gonzo misses expectations, posts 3.4 billion yen loss

Gonzo has reported its finances for the year ending this March, and the results aren't pretty. Even though earnings rose year over year, Gonzo posted a much larger loss than expected of 3.4 billion yen for the previous fiscal year, continui...

1920's baseball and Korean MMO getting anime adaptations

Alright, who's ready for some baseball? And not the usual Major-type stuff, either. I'm talking full-out 1925-style rules here. The Taisho Yakyuu Musume novels (Taisho Baseball Girls) are going to be adapted into an anime, according to Octo...
