Atari carts in landfill
Well here's some unexpected news for the weekend! The myth that there are millions Atari 2600 cartridges, including the infamously awful E.T. the Extra-Terrestrial, may just have been proved true. There is currently a te...   read

Dynasty Warriors: Gundam
  Watch Video What's better than fighting and destroying a Gundam? Fighting and destroying thousands of them, that's what. The Dynasty Warriors: Gundam spin-offs have been great fun so far, but I'll admit that I didn't put that much time ...   read

Review: Short Peace
As far as bundles go, this is a bit of a strange one. Part-movie collection, part-video game, Short Peace: Ranko Tsukigime's Longest Day is something that could only be pulled off on a home console. I suppose it's not su...   read

New Ace Attorney
Oh Capcom, forget that I had any concerns about you abandoning the Ace Attorney franchise. This week's Famitsu contains a shock announcement of a brand new game, one that looks to be a spin-off rather than an Ace Attorney 6. ...   read

Hunter x Hunter
You know, I had a feeling we'd be getting this announcement soon, seeing as the Hunter x Hunter anime is creeping closer and closer to the final complete arc from the manga. If you're not clued up on what's been going on for ...   read

Dragon Ball Kai
Dragon Ball Kai has quite a noble goal in trying to cut out all of the added fluff from the original Dragon Ball Z series. Even though I'd seen the original series in its entirety, as well as plenty of times via Toonami as a ...   read

Tales of Heart R
  Watch Video Self-proclaimed Tales of super fan Hideo Baba has announced on his YouTube channel that Tales of Hearts R will soon be making its way abroad. It's the PlayStation Vita remake of the original Tales of Hearts game, which relea...   read

Music
  Watch Video It's time to head back to 1998, as today's music is coming from Mr Reichi Nakaido. This is the first of two places you may have heard his music if you're into your anime, as he composed most of the soundtrack for Serial Expe...   read

Puzzle & Dragons
I think we're all at least somewhat aware of how widely spread Puzzle & Dragons fever is in Japan, but I think their latest project is definitely a good indicator of its success. We've known since last year that Square En...   read

FI: Mekakucity Actors
"Oh hey, a Shaft show! I didn't end up watching Nisekoi, so I'll be sure to watch this." This was the only reason I decided to pick up Mekakucity Actors. I had no idea that I was diving into what seems like a reasonably well-...   read

The World God Only Knows
Sorry folks, but I'm about to make your Saturday a little miserable. We've known for a while that The World God Only Knows was due to end on its 26th volume, but we now have a date. We'll be saying goodbye to Keima, Elsie, Ha...   read

JoJo: All-Star Battle
  Watch Video You've just finished a week at work. Tough, right? You want nothing more than to just collapse at home, enjoy a nice cold drink and chill out. Don't worry, you deserve a good rest, but what are you going to do? Watch TV? You ...   read

Mekaku City Actors
  Watch Video Eyes! Super powers! Shaft! What else could you possibly want from an anime series that's based on a few Vocaloid tunes? Mekaku City Actors is that anime, and it'll be airing in just a few days time. Meanwhile you can try and...   read

Taiko no Tatsujin
Taiko no Tatsujin is great. You may not know it, but there was once a time when these games, albeit with an altered soundtrack, actually made it out of Japan. Unfortunately for us, this stopped years ago, but Japan has contin...   read

Crunchyroll x FUJI TV
Remember when Crunchyroll used to show Japanese drama? I kid, but let's be honest, it's been pretty slim pickings on the drama front as so much time and effort was instead poured into acquiring anime simulcasts. However, this...   read

Final Imps: Golden Time
  Watch Video We're finally here. The finale of the hottest amnesia-driven romantic comedy aired last week, and while it feels like it's taken several days just to digest what on Earth happened, I feel we've left the show in a good place. ...   read

One Piece
To the Straw Hat Pirates, My name is Tony Tony Chopper, but most people call me Chopper. I am the doctor aboard the Thousand Sunny, the vessel we have shared for as long as I can remember. Even though I'm a reindeer who ate t...   read

Baked Kit Kats
Japan is well known for its exclusive and extravagant Kit Kat flavours, with the likes of cherry blossom, green tea and wasabi joining the more standard milk chocolate and orange varieties. Creating new flavours just isn't en...   read

Sonic: Lost World
  Watch Video Nintendo certainly seems to at least be trying to step up their Wii U offering, and while Zelda DLC for a Sonic the Hedgehog game is hardly a system seller, it's the right kind of attitude to have. The game is already a 3DS ...   read

Golden Time Ep. 23
The penultimate episode. We're standing on the brink of Golden Time's conclusion, and while I want all of these bad things to wrap-up and conclude in the best way possible, I also don't want it to end. This show has been a ro...   read

Hanamonogatari
  Watch Video Nothing is going to slow down Shaft's Monogatari train, especially when you consider how popular the franchise has become. Heads would roll if people couldn't get the next available dose of Mayoi getting beaten up by Araragi...   read

Review: Hundred Knight
  Watch Video Diablo 3 was disappointing. That might be an odd way to start a review on a game from Nippon Ichi Software, but while I and many others await the Reaper of Souls expansion to complete the many Diablo 3 renovations, the u...   read

Space Dandy S2
If you're ready for more adventure, pompadours and space boobies, you'll be pleased to hear that Space Dandy has just had it's second season confirmed, and it'll be coming as soon as July. You may remember that the show was d...   read

Attack on Titan x MonHun
Those titan hunters sure get around, don't they? It's pretty impressive actually, considering their species is essentially trapped in one place. This time they've managed to dodge harms way outside the city walls long enough ...   read

J-Stars Victory Vs.
You have to hand it to Japan. When they want to promote something, they're certainly willing to push the boat out to do so. This might not be on the same scale as the giant Gundam, but life-size statues of Luffy and Goku part...   read

Gundam TriAge SP
Back when I visited Tokyo in 2011, there was an interesting new arcade game that seemed to be pretty popular. That was Gundam TriAge, and after watching Japanese people play it in an attempt to figure out what to, I sunk my f...   read

Golden Time Ep. 22
This episode is so jammed full of reveals, shouting and tears that I spent quite some time figuring out where to even start. This got me thinking about Banri's reaction to the non-stop barrage of bad news, and I'm not sure I'...   read

Kanpai Senshi After V
  Watch Video After the success of the hilarious Akibaranger, it's not too surprising that there would be another Sentai parody show looming on the horizon. Kanpai Senshi After V is that show, which follows the main cast's fight against e...   read

Stardust Crusaders
  Watch Video The fourth and final teaser for JoJo's Bizarre Adventure: Stardust Crusaders is finally here, and it's time to get French and slick up that hair of yours. Jean-Pierre Polnareff and his trusty Silver Chariot are all over this...   read

Sega Humble Weekly Sale
The team at HumbleBundle.com are really good at pinching the pennies from your virtual wallet, even rivalling Steam's sales with its 'pay what you want' game bundles. This week is no exception, as Sega is stepping up and putt...   read
