Attack on Titan Burgers photo

Attack on Arteries: New Lotteria burgers are insane

I can imagine that the design process for an Attack on Titan burger must have been a tough one. Grilling pictures into the bun would have been lame, and you can't really pick specialist ingredients when the only things that get eaten in thi...

Neo Nibutani? photo

Nibutani sports a new look in the new season of Chūnibyō

We'll finally get our mitts on the new season of Chuunibyou demo Koi ga Shitai! in just a weeks time on the 9th of January, so be prepared for more butt-wiggling and hair-twirling action. KyoAni has recently updated the official websit...

Shingeki no Racing photo

Attack on Horse Racing

Are you familiar with the Japan World Cup? If not, you should check that out before you continue. Good? Good! Now, you might be thinking that a collaboration between that and Attack on Titan may be an odd one, and well...you'd be right. It ...

Wii Mini coming to US photo

The Wii Mini is coming to the US after all

Blimey, I forgot about this thing. It was nearly a year ago that the Wii Mini launched in Canada, and earlier this year for the UK release. I say that loosely, because I've still yet to see a Wii Mini being sold at retail, just the odd onli...

Girls und Postage photo

Girls und Postage

When you are in the midst of a heated tank-on-tank battle and you simply can't send a telegram, just how are you going to get a message to your fellow comrades? Radio? No can do, you left your radio at home by accident when you rushed to ge...

Plush toys photo

Throw those hugging pillows away, Charlotte is here

Even at a whopping four feet long, this Charlotte plush is but a fraction of her true size. Still, this is as good as you're going to get without finding the one from the Good Smile Café, and it's not a bad compromise. Just look at t...

Madoka invades Phantasy Star Online 2

Ever thought that your Phantasy Star Online 2 experience just wasn't that magical? Had you often found yourself wishing that a being from another planet would make just a few minor improvements to your character? Wish no longer, as Kyubey, ...

Yakuza sites close photo

Sega closes all official non-Japanese Yakuza sites

The chances of Yakuza 5 making it outside of Japan with an official translation are already pretty slim, but news that Sega has closed all of its non-Japanese Yakuza sub-websites feels like the final nail in the coffin. Unless of course the...

Evangelion manga ending photo

At last?! The Evangelion manga ends in two chapters

After 18 long years, Yoshiyuki Sadamoto's Neon Genesis Evangelion manga will finally be reaching its conclusion. Some of you may not realize this, but Sadamoto's manga treatment of the hit series actually started its run before the anime ev...

Ahoge Chanbara photo

A Look At: Ahoge Chanbara

Developed for iOS devices by M2, Ahoge Chanbara is a story of justice, love, and the ahoge way. It's a tale of revenge, redemption, and a stirring reminder of what makes us human. It's an experience that pats you lovingly on the head, only ...

La Cumbia de Goku  photo

La Cumbia de Goku transforms the Spirit Bomb into a dance

Well, I never thought that I would live to see the day that we get a Cumbia song about Dragon Ball Z. Jumping into the Fusion Dance, two Mexican music groups known as Cañada de la Cumbia and Los Weyes Que Tocan join forces...

#rdg is a big deal, guys photo

Reading Data Girl? Someone cares about hashtags

Seen the first episode of Red Data Girl yet? If you don't know what it's about, how about checking out the first part of our seasonal preview guide? Oh yeah, I was here to talk about drama. Internet drama, no less! Prepare yourselves. ...

Bloggers Wanted: Liar Liar!

I hope you lovely folks have been checking out the C-Blogs of late, as we've been getting lots of interesting posts from people just like yourself (unless, of course, it's you posting them...well done!). As ever, we'll promote articles we t...

JP McDonald's extra goods photo

Get surprised by McDonald's newest offerings in Japan

I'm always up for special offers that come with ordering food, but this is just plain ridiculous. On April 8th, people who eat breakfast at McDonalds in Japan will receive some Recaldent Blooming Mint Chewing Gum -- take that, bad breath. B...

Pleiades movie is a thing photo

Drive a Subaru: Gainax's Pleiades anime becomes a movie

Honestly, I am confused right now. I could've sworn that Gainax and Subaru's Wish upon the Pleiades was suppose to be said and done. Never mind, I forgot to take one important thing into consideration. Seeing how Pleiades's ending...

Patlabor live-action photo

Uh, ok? Live action Patlabor project coming in 2014

[Update: Check out the official site for the project, here.] I'm actually really late to the party when it comes to the Mobile Police Patlabor franchise. How late you ask? I only just watched the TV series last month. Spoilers: I loved...


Baby making simulator Conception 2 coming to 3DS/Vita

According to an early Famitsu leak, Spike's super strange PSP dungeon crawler/baby making simulator, Conception: Please Give Birth to my Child!, is getting a sequel. It'll be hitting the Nintendo 3DS and the Vita sometime this summer. ...


Senran Kagura: Shinovi Versus breaks 120,000 units sold

This comes as quite the surprise. I had expected Marvelous AQL's latest Vita game, Senran Kagura: Shinovi Versus, to push somewhere around 60,000 copies its opening week. According to Gamer, between digital and retail versions, Shinovi Vers...

From our community  

Bloggers Wanted: Progression

Having a discussion topic like 'Top 5' is pretty fun for me, as it means I get a decent split of serious to not-so-serious articles over in the community blogs. Hopefully we can enjoy the best of both worlds once again with this topic that ...

Life After Rinko photo

Life after Rinko

The road to recovery was long and arduous, but as many good friends had told me, time is a great healer. I was able to abandon thoughts of venturing to the smoky prison to see her once again, and instead made preparations to continue with m...


New project teased by LovePlus developers

It seems like it might be time to say goodbye to your LovePlus lady of choice, as it seems there's a new dating sim for budding gamers to prep marriage forms for. The project involves Akira Uchida (producer of New LovePlus) and Mino Taro (a...


Doug Walker and James Rolfe cameo...in an anime?

Around the same time I really got into watching anime, I was introduced to James Rolfe's Angry Video Game Nerd series. I'm a sucker for some good old toilet humour and terrible video games, so even now I regularly frequent Cinemassacre to s...


Review: Final Fantasy: All the Bravest

Square Enix, what are you doing?  There have certainly been some interesting additions to the Final Fantasy universe of late, and after initially breaking the hearts of 3DS owners seeking out a localised Bravely Default, we wound up wi...


First Impressions: [email protected]

Is it possible to fall in love with a series after just one episode? Okay, let's backtrack a little. It's a Shaft offering, so of course one of us was going to pick it up. Did I know anything about this show before going in? Absolutely not....


Oyashiro-sama returns, this time in Kaku flavour

Higurashi is an odd one.  Higurashi no Naku Koro ni was pretty darn good. Sure, the art was a little sloppy in places, but if you've ever played the visual novel, you'll know that pretty much anything would be an improvement in that de...


Super Robot Wars UX's trailer features vocaloid action

Oh wow, I never thought that I would live to see the day that a vocaloid would make an appearance in the Super Robot Wars series. Courtesy of Sega, Miku will be piloting her version of the Fei-Yen that features her signature leek and ...


These Fate/Zero cushions are manly as hell

There's no hiding that Fate/Zero filled me with all sorts of happy feelings. It's one of my favorite shows from the past five years, and I go to bed every night while caressing my BD sets.  Ok, that last part isn't true, but I wish it ...


Gasp! [email protected] Shiny Festa to get localized?

File this one under "wait, seriously?" Namco Bandai has apparently filed trademarks for both The Idol Master and Shiny Festa over in Europe, which is something that blows my mind. This franchise has been around for quite some time now, and ...


No plans to release the Wii Mini outside of Canada

The Wii Mini is puzzling. I'd be lying if I said it didn't look neat, but it's also kind of a shame that the Gamecube compatibility and online parts have been stripped from the console. Can't complain when it'll only cost you 99 of Canada's...


Going back to it: Summer Vacation

[Another promoted article for you guys! This one was sent to me by an anonymous lady, so check it out and leave a comment for her! Remember folks, the month is yet to end, so check out the guidelines for this months "Bloggers...


Astronaut lends his voice to Space Bros... from space!

How amazing is this? Space Bros, the anime that follows Nanba Mutta in his quest to become an astronaut like his brother, has received a little more help from NASA and JAXA than we first thought. It seems that Akihiko Hoshide, a Japanese as...


Teddie doesn't want you posting P4 Golden spoilers

File this one under 'mildly terrifying'.  Today, the official Teddie twitter of Atlus Japan tweeted that he didn't want people spoiling the old or new content in Persona 4 Golden. He then proceeded to link to a terrifying ima...


Protect your bums! Butt-Biting Insect song gets an anime

Curses! What have you done? Congratulations, Japan, you have unleashed an infestation that will ruin the privileges that we have when it comes to sitting down.  Now that I have calmed down, a children song known as Oshiri Kaj...


Huh? UFO Catcher lets you win fugus and salamanders

Oh look at that, I have always wanted to win my own blowfish or axoltl salamander. If you are as excited as I am, you can head on over to Nakano Broadway and test your luck. To those that are worried about the well-being of these ...


Inflatable fun to be had with Record of Agarest War 2

I didn't play much of the first game, I'll admit. Most of my time was put into Disgaea 3, so Record of Agarest War has just been sitting in a draw somewhere, waiting to be revisited. What I did play was pretty cool though, but when there ar...


John Goodman's face on anime girls is the best blog today

It's Friday. You've almost made it through a long work week. You're looking forward to relaxing over the weekend, and I can help with that. I've got something special for you, baby. Let me whisper it in your ear: "John Goodman's face on ani...


Jean Reno continues to play Doraemon in awesome CM's

Remember a while back when we posted about French actor Jean Reno starring in a series of Japanese commercials based on Doraemon? Yeah, there's more. The Toyota commercials take the Doraemon characters and age them by about twenty years, ma...


Bike race anime PV is so saccharine it gave me diabetes

You know how there are some people out there who look down on anime and its fandom because they think it's all really weird? They imagine the medium as nothing but ten-year-old girls with giant tits parading around making cute sounds before...
