Japanator Arena: See You Around

*ding, ding, ding* It's Over!  Due to the requirement of Kiba's assistance for most of Akamaru's techniques, it wasn't too hard for Koromaru to take home the prize. However, the ninja dog's Passing Fang technique was the only thing tha...

Japanator Arena: Koromaru VS Akamaru

*ding, ding, ding* It's Over! It looks like everyone evacuated the Jtor Arena last week, as Alteisen Riese unleashed the Claymore Overlord on Blodia. Bullets flew everywhere, and Jin wasn't safe from the Plasma Horn and the rain of titanium...

Japanator Arena: Alteisen Riese VS Blodia

*ding, ding, ding* It's Over! Due to his lack of experience with fighting opponents outside of the Akuma and Noah Clan, Allen Walker wasn't GAR enough to go up against Kazuma the Shell Bullet. All it took was one Shocking First Bullet to th...

Japanator Arena: Allen Walker VS Kazuma The Shell Bullet

*ding, ding, ding* It's Over! It's hard to believe that Adol wasn't able to triumph over the Link last week. While Adol could've ended the match with his time-stopping spell, Link countered his move with the help of his Magic Cape. Confused...

Japanator Arena: Adol vs Link

*ding, ding, ding* It's Over! Ippo was at an unfair disadvantage in this match, since Dudley has the edge in both weight and height. However, this did not stop Ippo from going all out! As both boxersed cross fists, Ippo unleashed his Dempse...

Japanator Arena: Dudley VS Ippo

*ding, ding, ding* It's Over! It's hard to believe that Soma's having trouble with this battle. The man is able to wield the souls of various creatures and entities. On top of that, a good number of his weapons contain holy and/or magical p...

Japanator Arena: Nrvnqsr Chaos vs Soma Cruz

*ding, ding, ding* It's Over! Even with Victor's immense strength and ability to harness electrify through his body, Stein was smart enough to void the creature's electrifying grabs-- including the butt one. After Stein used his Soul Purge ...

Japanator Arena: Victor Von Gerdenheim VS Franken Stein

*ding, ding, ding* It's Over! Blade may be an amazing character in his own medium, but his swordsman skills could not match D's 1,000 years of experience. When the Daywalker realized that he couldn't stand up to Dracula's son head on, he re...

Japanator Arena: Blade VS Vampire Hunter D

*ding, ding, ding* It's Over! Seras and Grave are locked in an endless shootout. Both opponents are chock-full of lead, and their regenerative abilities continue to negate each blast. After Grave brings out the Demolition Shots, Seras decid...


Friday Night Fights: Naruto vs. Edward Elric

*ding ding ding* Welcome everyone to Friday Night Fights here at the J-tor Arena! Within these holy grounds, characters from anime, manga, and video games collide in a no holds barred battle to the death, with only one coming out ...


What defines America's Greatest Otaku?

What makes a great otaku, actions or possessions?  Tokyopop's search for America's Greatest Otaku is coming to a close. The manga publisher had announced in May that the search would continue until August. Now, about 30 finalists will ...


Weekly Geek Debate: Batman vs. Superman

Time to settle it, America. The one battle for supremacy that is never settled: The Dark Knight vs. The Man of Steel.On one side, we have the Last Son of Krypton: the man who was sent from his dying homeworld as a baby to Earth, and was ins...


Otaku Debate: Mikoto Misaka vs. Darth Vader

It's otaku debate time! Although Kanata had a strong showing last week, she still wasn't popular enough to knock Yui off her moeblob throne. Everybody's favorite K-ON! guitarist won 64% of the vote, over twice as much as Kanata's measly 30%...


Otaku Debate: Hirasawa Yui vs. Sorami Kanata

Since we had a fairly unconventional Otaku Debate last week (with no clear winner), I figured we'd get back to the basics this week with a good old-fashioned character battle. However, this is no ordinary battle... it's an all-out deathmatc...


Tuesday Otaku Debate: What anime deserves a remake?

Okay, first things first. As you're probably aware, Japanator held a massive Gundam Battle Royale last week to determine, once and for all, the greatest Gundam series of all time. It was a close contest, but after carefully tallying the vot...

The Hypocrisy of Moe

[Whoa! This Cblog has certainly ignited some passionate debate. Let's promote it to the front page and give all our readers a chance to weigh in on the issue of moe hypocrisy. If you'd like to start a debate of your own, head over to the Cb...


Tuesday Otaku Debate: Gundam Battle Royale

Okay, so technically this is a WEDNESDAY Otaku Debate. Wanna fight about it? Although the Imperial Star Destroyer performed better than I expected last week, it still wasn't powerful enough to topple the mighty SDF Macross, which blasted it...


Tuesday Otaku Debate: SDF Macross vs Star Destroyer

Last week's debate results are in, and it looks like poor Bobby got the shaft. Yup, Leeron dominated the polls with an overwhelming 64% majority, easily trumping Bobby's 24%. Bon Clay was a popular write-in candidate, coming in at 6%. Hanag...


Tuesday Otaku Debate: Leeron Littner vs. Bobby Margot

Greetings, readers of Japanator. I have returned from the *ahem* Catgirl Empire facility on Sesharrim, and I'm all the better for it. The Imperial mind engineers sensed my weakness, and upgraded me to strengthen my resolve. All glory to the...


Tuesday Otaku Debate: Evangelion vs. RahXephon

Hey, look what column has made its triumphant return!In the anime world, Neon Genesis Evangelion is god. Ask your average otaku about it, and you're liable to get a long spiel about how it's a wonderful, groundbreaking and virtually flawles...


Weekly Otaku Debate: Kimi ni Todoke vs Toradora!

Here I am in beautiful Miami, and instead of soaking in the rays in this lovely 80 degree weather, I'm writing up our next Otaku Debate. Something just seems wrong about that, but I figure it's about time for a new one. Our last d...


Weekly Otaku Debate: Nodame Cantabile vs Hana Yori Dango

Considering the scope of the last debate, I thought it'd be fair to give it a bit extra time. After all, I felt it'd be pretty tough to choose just one of Miyazaki's masterpieces. Sure enough, some of you couldn't pick just one. Some of you...


Tuesday Otaku Debate: Miyazaki battle royal

Well, isn't this a surprise. It's been awhile since we've had something this close. So close, in fact, that we almost had a stalemate. Gloomy Bear and Hello Kitty both proved to be equally popular with each receiving 20 votes...


Tuesday Otaku Debate: Hello Kitty vs Gloomy Bear

Last weeks debate was interesting to say the least. It was our second music debate and since the last one had to do with pop idols, I tried going with something different by taking two very different rock bands and pitting them up against e...


Tuesday Otaku Debate: L'Arc~en~Ciel vs Dir en grey

I hope everyone has enjoyed their Labor Day weekend. I've been away from the site for a bit, so I've been catching up on all the great community blogs. You have no idea how pleased I am to finally see one promoted to our front pag...


Tuesday Otaku Debate: Manji vs Afro Samurai

Talk about one-sided; the last debate was won a huge landslide. I'm not sure what impressed me more, how the ratio, or the just the amount of votes alone.Strangely, I actually enjoyed it a bit more when people took the time to defend t...


Tuesday Otaku Debate: Saber vs Clare

The results are in for last weeks male moe battle, though I wish more people had voted for the most moe and not just for who could kick the most ass. That said, I still felt Honey was more moe, despite the fact that he could indeed kick mor...


Tuesday Otaku Debate: Mitsukuni Haninozuka vs Momiji Sohma

Last weeks debate was insane. I didn't expect to see that kind of turn out for our first ever music debate but everyone seemed rather pleased with the subject matter. Some people are pretty passionate about the musicians they love and I thi...


Tuesday Otaku Debate: Gackt vs Hikaru Utada

The last debate was heated! I wasn't sure who'd win going in, but I had my money on Ragna from Blazblue. It's a newer series, but seems to be all the rage these days. I thought for sure that Sol Badguy had probably seen his day, but I guess...


Tuesday Otaku Debate - Sol Badguy vs Ragna the Bloodedge

Thank god that con season is over. I'd like to think I'm through with them for the rest of the year, though you never know. Something could come up that'd make me book tickets for another con in an instant, but somehow I doubt it'll ha...


Tuesday Otaku Debate - PaRappa the Rapper vs K.K. Slider

We just got back from Otakon yesterday, and already we're gearing up for Comic Con. I'm actually still in the process of figuring out how I'm going to work out my transportation for the convention despite actually living in S...


Tuesday Otaku Debate - Tekkaman vs Guyver

It's Tuesday again, so that means it's time for the results of last week's Otaku Debate! Last week's debate was to decide the "Best of Show" cosplay from Anime Expo. We were able to narrow it down to three who deserved a nod and w...


Tuesday Otaku Debate: AX cosplay - best of show

What an exhausting week. Now that the con fatigue is starting to wear off, it feels great to just sit back and see all the crazy stuff we did. There wasn't a lot going on in terms of what got announced but one thing really caught my ey...


Tuesday Otaku Debate: Masamune Date vs Yukimura Sanada

Okay, so it's Wednesday. I know I said I'd try to get this up on Tuesday, but I'll be perfectly honest, between BlazBlue, Dynasty Warriors and prepping for Anime Expo, I was a bit distracted. Moving on to the matters at hand,...


Tuesday Otaku Debate: Tifa Lockhart vs Aerith Gainsborough

I know, I know--it's Thursday. I need to apologize for not having these results up sooner. I hope we didn't keep you waiting too long, though. Last week's debate was certainly a fierce one. The results were incredibly close, ...


Tuesday Otaku Debate: Which K-On! girl is your favorite?

Last's week's debate over a dream battle between legendary Japanese swordsman, Miyamoto Musashi, and ancient Chinese war hero, Lu Bu, was a neck-and-neck battle, but we now have a winner. Though the battle was overwhilmengly favorable for L...


Tuesday Otaku Debate: Lu Bu vs. Miyamoto Musashi

Last week we entered into the depths of hell as we voted for the worst character to cosplay at a convention, or in your living room if you don’t go to conventions. This all arrived from a theory I have that states that bad cosplay see...
