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.

Aquarium Toys From Japan +

Growing up, my mom hated any sort of pet with hair or fur. I always wanted a puppy, but never got him. The only pet my mother could tolerate were fish. We had various fish during my childhood. Now that I am older, fish don’t excite me as they once did. However, if they still do, here are 2 things you may want to check out.

Aqua Eye

Have you ever wanted to see the inside of your as your pet fish see it? Japan Trend Shop sells the Aqua Eye, a mini underwater video camera for your aquarium. The tiny 2.7 megapixel video camera camera comes equipped with 4 LED lights to light up your underwater subject. I can imagine that this will be used for more than just figuring out what your fish do when they hid in that ceramic house you have in your tank.

Pocket Aquarium

If the work associated with keeping up a fish tank just isn’t your thing, but you do like fish, you may want to check out Sega’s pocket aquarium. It’s somewhat like a fish tomagatchi, but with much better graphics. You have your choice of system, each equipped with a different type of fish. OhGizmo! suggests parents buy this for their child before they decide to get them the real thing. Kinda gauging dedication. Good idea, but for $59, might as well just buy them a goldfish.
