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 […]

Ichi the Killer Bento +

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.

Traffic Tip: Blog about events +

I can’t remember where I found this tip, but my hits yesterday were the highest they have been since I returned to blogging. It’s definitely something that I am going to do from now on. I have been looking for where I found this tip to credit the original author, but for the life of me, I cannot find it. It was either from or, I will keep you informed when I find the original link. What the article was suggesting you do is blog on an upcoming event happening locally, in your niche, or anywhere. I choose something that was happening locally after reading the article. Hip Hop Soda Shop was opening their first Tampa location on Dec 18th, and I wrote a post about it about a week and a half ago. Since Google indexed the page, I received most of my traffic daily from people searching for any information about the Hip Hop Soda Shop on search engines. December 18th was the grand opening, and that’s why my page views spiked. I realized that most of the people came here just for that and not my blog, but if nothing, my advertising banners got a good amount of page views from them. So, I am not complaining. I even got a link on  BuzzFeed as the #9 link on the topic of Hip Hop Soda Shop. What I am going to do different though is try to blog about events related to Japan, Anime, Japanese TV, etc. That way I can not only reap the benefits of page views, but hopefully bring some new readers to Try it out for yourself, and remember to use those META tags wisely!
