FI: Sailor Moon Crystal
  Watch Video I never thought I'd be on the verge of tears after watching Usagi Tsukino's very first transformation into the pretty soldier of love and justice for the umpteenth time, but here I sit wiping tears away and swallowing back th...   read

World End Economica
  Watch Video [Originally posted at Destructoid.] Visual novels are a finicky medium. It's difficult enough to drum up interest because of their exotic origins, and harder still to find an audience due to their nature -- it's a bunch of re...   read

JBA: All-Star Battle
  Watch Video [As originally posted at Destructoid.] How do you like your fighting games? Personally, I like mine with a sizable dose of pop culture references and eye-melting color palettes infused with a healthy dose of humor that's hi...   read

Sailor Moon Crystal
I'm still super worried that Sailor Moon Crystal is going to be a Flash series, but Toei Animation's confirmation with ANN that it will run across 26 episodes makes me feel a tiny bit better. It's going to stream worldwide ev...   read

Sword Art Online
[As originally posted at Destructoid.] If you're still into Sword Art Online, you probably didn't watch the second half of the first series. Just kidding. I bet you're on pins and needles waiting for the Vita release,&nb...   read

Project Z
  Watch Video [As originally posted at Destructoid.] Left 4 Dead in Japanese arcades? It's more likely than you think. Actually, it's definitely going to happen. Taito's been teasing a "Project Z" for some time now for its Nesic...   read

Pokmon Art Academy
  Watch Video [As originally posted at Destructoid.] I've always wanted to learn how to perfect my nonexistent drawing skills, but games that promise to help me bone up on my technique just don't tickle my fancy. They're so dry. So boring...   read

JoJo's Bizarre Adventure
  Watch Video [As originally posted at Destructoid.] Like many of the fighting game fans who will inevitably see JoJo's Bizarre Adventure: All-Star Battle and become intrigued, I'm not caught up all the way with the storyline. Bandai Namc...   read

Evangelion x Transformers
I love Neon Genesis Evangelion, and Transformers are obviously awesome. What happens when you combine the two? An awesome repaint of the Takara Tomy Masterpiece MP-10 Optimus Prime done up like EVA Unit-01. Planet Iacon found...   read

Sailor Moon
It's Brittany again with another dose of Sailor Moon merchandising to populate the Japanator Sailor Moon tag! I kid, but hey, it's kind of true! Today I bring news and good fortune about the Sailor Moon 20th Anniversary Tribu...   read

Monster Hunter
[As originally posted at Destructoid.] My, how time flies. Capcom's indomitable Monster Hunter series has been around for ten years now, and to celebrate its tenth anniversary, Capcom has teamed up with ES...   read

JoJo's Bizarre Adventure
I'm no good with Rubik's Cubes, but these JoJo's Bizarre Adventure cubes aren't meant to be played with anyway. Megahouse's "JoJo’s Bizarre Cube Part 1: Phantom Blood” and “JoJo’s Bizarre Cube Part 2: ...   read

Candy Crush Saga
  Watch Video [As originally posted at Destructoid.] Candy Crush Saga is coming to Japan in a big way, as developer King has prepared a slew of rather bizarre commercials for its freakishly addictive mobile puzzler. With King ha...   read

Magic Knight Rayearth
Magic Knight Rayearth is a classical magical girl series that should be on your radar if you haven't already taken the plunge, especially since Mokona plush prizes are hitting Sega amusement centers in Japan. The '90s series ...   read

End of Serenity
[As originally posted at Destructoid.] The retro JRPG aesthetic is infinitely appealing to me, and Natsume and Kemco hope you'll feel the same way with the upcoming End of Serenity. It's a love l...   read

AA: Brynhildr
After the weirdness of the first episode of Brynhildr, it finally fins a groove of its own, and I'm pleased to see a growing familiarity between Elfen Lied (a personal favorite series of mine) and this show, especially in the...   read

Omori
[As originally posted at Destructoid.] Omocat is a stellar artist and kindred spirit, and she's responsible for some excellent art and a particularly badass jacket that I want to wear. She's also hard at w...   read

Sailor Moon
Another day, another set of Sailor Moon toys, replicas, or all-around awesome merchandise that I want to hoard and keep all to myself. Is there no end? I don't think there is. Banpresto has just launched a new brand of figure...   read

Madoka Magica
You know, as much as I enjoyed Madoka Magica, it's one series I haven't purchased any merchandise from. There's such a huge sampling of stuff, too. But I haven't even seen any of the films or the tie-in material, so I guess t...   read

FI: Kamigami no Asobi
Kamigami no Asobi is a lively reverse-harem series based on the visual novel of the same name, and if it ends up anything like the Hakuoki series, it should be a treat to follow. It's got everything: gorgeous boys (for everyo...   read

El Hazard
I've been interested in El Hazard - The Magnificent World for some time, given its classic animation style and fantasy elements. I've just never been sure of which El Hazard I needed to start with or if I would like it, and I...   read

Jojo's Bizarre Adventure
You ever look over your jewelry collection and think to yourself "Wow, I really wish I had a coffin to store all of this in?" You're not alone, apparently. But it can't just be any coffin, because you're classy. You're an ota...   read

Evangelion
Stupid Shinji and his stupid tape player. All he ever does is replay that one track. You'd think he'd get tired of it by now, or at the very least he could upgrade to a CD player or an iPod. But no, he's still stuck with a So...   read

Sword Art Online II
Following the success of the first Sword Art Online series, the second installment, Sword Art Online II, will be simulcast worldwide. Aniplex confirmed the announcement today, and the series will be airing in Japan in July of...   read

Babymetal
Babymetal, the band the internet is just now getting around to hyping up, will be performing alongside bands like Metallica and Iron Maiden this year in the UK's Sonisphere Festival. It only seems like just yesterday Hiroko h...   read

Sailor Moon
Little by little, the pieces are all coming together to form the upcoming Sailor Moon series we've all been waiting for. We're getting dangerously close to the final product, and there's another exciting event to add to the l...   read

Sailor Moon
Now that I'm an adult and I have some disposable income if I decide I don't want to eat or wear clothes, there's a whole wealth of Sailor Moon stuff out there for me to buy and then wallow in when it inevitably winds up on my...   read

Berserk
If you didn't already know this about me, I'm a huge Berserk fan. I've even got Guts' brand tattooed on my left shoulder. If I could, I'd have my own behelit. Alas, the best I can hope for is getting to watch the third and fi...   read

Kamigami no Asobi
Adding to their recent list of acquisitions, Sentai Filmworks has licensed Kamigami no Asobi, a reverse harem darling that Karen, L.B., and myself all agree is full of pretty men and worth watching, especially for the male tr...   read

Music
  Watch Video "Oh no, they let Brittany do The Dose? SAVE US!"  Chill. I'm only doing it for one day. You can deal with that, surely. Ohaaa lucky~! I've got an oldie but a goodie from duo HALCALI, a pretty chill tune that'll get you ...   read

 

About Brittany Vincentone of us since 2:55 AM on 09.03.2012




HAAAY~! <3 I'm Brittany, and I'm the resident creeper, er, community manager over here at Jtor. I'm here to make your experience even more awesome than usual, and If that means exposing you to J-horror in near-deadly doses, then I shall.

Have a pressing question? A suggestion? Send me a PM, email me, or tweet me! Can't wait? Feel free to contact me on AIM at JtorBrittany.

Shes been writing professionally for five years and enjoys combining her lifelong love of gaming and extensive video game knowledge with her passion for the written word.

She also enjoys writing for horror publications like Rue Morgue, Bloody Disgusting, and Dread Central. Over the past few years, shes also worked with PR representatives to build relationships and obtain review products for her work, having managed her own gaming website and small teams to attend video game conventions such as PAX East in 2010 and E3 in 2011. In addition, she is now the community manager at Japanator.

When her bank account, eyes, and social life arent suffering from grueling hours of sweaty-palmed gaming and feverish scribbling, she may be found in the wild viewing anime or poring through manga, mingling in online forums, and working to hone her craft. Simple sleep or paralysis is not enough to catch her, though. No, a Master Ball may be in order. Until her dying breath shell be wielding a BFG made entirely of killer drive and ambition while stamping out stereotypes and passing on the frivolity of console wars. So, are you ready?
