Weekend Japanatainment - Scary Anime Edition

It's that time of the year again and I am slapping together an impromptu post about scary anime to coincide with the celebration of Halloween! This yearly event of dressing up and asking for candy from strangers is also about scary stuff (a...

Review: Corpse Party (PC)

For the longest time, I never got the chance to get into the horror genre of video games. It’s not that I’m afraid of playing a scary title; it’s that most of the major ones came out on the original Playstation console, a ...

Final Impressions: School-Live!

School-Live! (or Gakkou Gurashi!) nearly slipped under the radar. If you had no idea of the more sinister plot afoot, you'd probably skip the series thinking it's yet another show about four young girls doing young girl things. None of the ...

Annotated Anime: School-Live! episodes 7-11

I've got a complicated relationship with zombambos. I've gotten tired with the genre, but I can't help but stay invested in how different characters are effected in different medias. Each media provides unusual takes, and anime is no differ...

Annotated Anime: School-Live! episodes 4-6

Last time I talked about School-Live! (which was a bit ago, sorry), I noted how much I loved how its cutesy art clashed with its dark world. Despite how seemingly annoyingly cute it is, it grabbed my attention and never let go. I figured as...

First Impressions: School-Live!

Zombies are played out at this point. Numerous movies, television shows, comics, manga, and anime have been churned out each tackling the genre but failing to do anything interesting for a long time. Each piece of zombie media has their aud...

The Grudge gets a Hollywood reboot

The Grudge was part of the Japanese horror wave in the early 2000s that hit the West and gave millions the irrational fear of long, messy bed-hair and gutteral throat sounds. To my surprise, a reboot of The Grudge was said to be in the...

We get story details for Corpse Party: Blood Drive

Corpse Party was one of my all-time favorite PSP games, and one of the few where I went out of my way to find every secret and nab every collectible. Who knew a top-down RPG-styled adventure game could be so engrossing and creepy? Corpse Pa...

 
 
Higurashi photo

Higurashi van is a horror on wheels

Alright, can we talk about how creepy this is? A lot of people say cosplaying is the best way to take your love for a show or character to the next level. However, I think this goes beyond it. A Higurashi van. This is no joke, my friends.&n...

I dare you not to flinch at this tire commercial

I'm warning you now. Even if you prepare yourself to not flinch from this one, I'm betting you still do. I knew exactly what was coming and I still was jostled! The commercial sure knows how to scare people into buying winter tires. While ...

Blood C receives animation award

While it isn't a perfect show, Blood C is an alright horror show that looks and sounds solid. It seems that other publications agreed, as the 12 episode program was awarded the 2013 Reaper Award for Best Animation. Presented by the horror s...

Arcana trailer photo

Arcana's live action film isn't really scaring me

I hadn't actually ever read Yua Kotegawa's 2 part manga series Aracana before. However, whenever I hear about new Japanese horror or manga adaptations my ears perk up. AFter watching the new trailer, I can't say I'm itching to get in line ...

Import Review: Corpse Party 2: Dead Patient Chapter 01

Corpse Party has been on something of a roll lately. With an anime OVA in the works, multiple successful manga series, and a new Vita game scheduled to hit later this year, there looks to be no end in sight for the horror franchise. Corpse ...

The Ring's Sadako wants to help you on your next date

The Ring's Sadako Yamamura (Sorry, no relation) seems to be popping up everywhere nowadays. She's throwing pitches at baseball games, and even has a Hello Kitty collaboration! I have to say all of this has made her slighly less terrifying ...
