Robo-Geisha is one crazy movie +

Bit NSFW. Well, I’ve never been one to shy away from crazy Japanese cult movies. As a matter of fact, I didn’t think I would find one that topped Tokyo Gore Police. Silly me. Leave it to the minds that created Machine Girl and Tokyo Gore Police to team up and create this over the […]

A 3 foot horror story +

The bathroom in many homes is a very lonely room. You only visit it when you need something, and not for the pleasant atmosphere the room provides. So is it really hard to believe that the lonely bathrooms around the world holds a deep seated grudge for the humans that use it? I think not. […]

A real Hello Kitty +

If you are reading this website right now, I would find it very hard for you to not know what Hello Kitty is. One could argue that it is one of the most well known Japanese brands right up there with Honda and Sony. This video has nothing to do with Hello Kitty other than […]

Kids vs Zombies +

So, Andrea subliminally tricked me into purchasing Left 4 Dead on Steam, and I have been enjoying playing it for the past few days now. Funnily enough, I have to play Louis everytime I play online because well… my real name is Louis and I’m African-American. You may be wondering what zombies have to do […]

Gore movies are one of my many favorites from Japan. The last one I watched was Tokyo Gore Police a few months ago. What can I say about that besides it was unbelievably gory… As for the actual story, I think I could of written something better as weekend homework in the 4th grade. But […]

Naoto Fukasawa’s Fruit Juice +

They say that the way food or drinks look plays a major influence on how well we like it. I would have to agree. These are some awesome fruit juice packaging from Industrial designer Naoto Fukasawa. Looking at the strawberry box, it looks as if the packaging may even feel like the specific fruit it […]

Mini Nikon SLR in Japanese candy +

Gilco is one of Japan’s oldest candy companies, and is home to the popular Glico caramel candy as well as the legendary Pocky. For about 80 years now, inside the Glico caramel candy boxes there is a small toy called “Omake of Glico” (Small gift of Glico). It started off as little toys kids would […]

Space Invaders Bank +

Tomy has done it again. If you are old enough to remember space invaders, this functioning bank will trigger your nostalgia reflex. Personally I remember the game, but I’m too young to remember the actual table. We did have a functioning Atari when I was a child though. Ah. Memories.

GONZO streaming 2 NEW anime titles +

BLASSREITER, New Anime from GONZONot sure how many of you know this already, but I thought I would post it to help spread the word. GONZO has decided to try a very interesting experiment with their anime titles, The Tower of DRUAGA -the Aegis of URUK and BLASSREITER. Starting today, it is being offered streaming online at a few sources. Never heard of GONZO? You should have. They have released popular animes such as Blue Submarine No.6, Samurai 7, Gankutsuou, Brave Story and Afro Samurai. I will be watching this experiment closely as it’s sure to shape the future of anime here in America if it goes as planned. Source.

A little bit about The Tower of DRUAGA,

The long awaited “Summer of Anu” has come.
It is a season that comes but once every few years and during which the powers of the monsters within the Tower wane thanks to the grace of the great god Anu.

Each Summer of Anu, the armies of the Uruk Kingdom secure their strongholds within the Tower, aiming to eventually conquer the upper floors.

Decades of re-fortification and battle have passed since the infamous adventures of Gil and Ki. Their story has now become a legend.

Now, finally, the third Summer of Anu has arrived.

The city of Meskia – the first stronghold built on the first level of the Tower – is brimming with unprecedented expectation. In addition to the Uruk Army, preparing for their third campaign against Druaga, innumerable adventurers have been drawn to Meskia by rumors of a legendary treasure believed to be hidden on the top floor of the Tower…

A little bit about BLASSREITER

As the dark cloud of apocalypse shadows over the world, stigmatized heroes arise….for reasons yet unknown…

The story takes place in a city in Germany sometime in the near future.
A puzzling incident occurs where a corpse rises up in the form of a strange creature and attacks people.
The appearance of the monstrous undead shakes the nation as horrified people look on the incident as a sign of “the coming of demons.”

The city also witnesses the rise of that can incarnate into demons at will. Each and every bearer of this special ability, while being condemned as demons, uses his/her power for different ends…

Some use the power for what they believe as justice.
Some lose themselves in the immensity of their powers and abuse them.
Some use their power to realize their ambitions.
Some use it for the purpose of revenge.

However, all are eventually burdened with the same overpowering fate: to fight in a Battle Royale in which the lives of all “demons” are ultimately jeopardized…

Each uses their powers to survive, and to fulfill their individual purposes.
However, using the special power comes with a price: their human minds gradually begin to debilitate…

An unrelenting and devastating story of young men and women racked with solitude and agony.

    kel,

    just saw your post.

    Two must-see titles from Gonzo are LastExile and Welcome to the NHK. The English dub of LastExile is very good, it features Kari Wahlgren (of FLCL/Haruko fame) Crispin Freeman, and Johnny Yong Bosch, to name a few. Very good story, great visuals and soundtrack. This was a Geneon release, and Funimation has it now.

    Welcome to the NHK is one of the last of the ADV dubs (Now licensed by Funimation), is a brilliant piece of pop culture satire, and will have you r’ing otflyao one minute, and thinking “I can relate”, the next.

    I also like the original Full Metal Panic, the male lead is too funny.

    Last but not least are two darker titles, “Red Garden” and “Gankutsuo”. I’m currently catching up on the latter.

    I’ve got the fansub of “Shangri-La”, but haven’t watched it yet.

    I like Gonzo, because they take a lot of chances. They put out some really of the wall stuff, but they swing for the fence. When they hit, it’s going over the wall.

    with out free online streaming, anime would not reach half of the western audience today. it’s amazing what stuff like youtube has done for the medium as a whole, yet most studios and publishers still battles with the various copy rights and distrubtion non-sense, the studios may salvage a few bucks but at the cost of reaching to more audience.

    anyway, good on gonzo

    That’s good news, I think a lot of anime fans are used to watching things online- and in one of their press releases they mention that this is designed to fight illegal online distribution. So I’m glad Gonzo is trying to adapt its business model with the customers in mind, and hopefully the rest of the industry will be watching and picking up tips. Amazon’s been offering $1.99 downloads per episode for some dubbed shows too.

    Just finished watching the first episode of Blassreiter. Really clever idea about the streaming! It just loads up in parts and you don’t need to do anything. Great graphics and alot of mystery/story. Worth a watch :)
