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.

The best Netflix Japanese movies +

My favorite Japanese movies from Netflix

Yesterday I was asked about my Netflix queue. I was already thinking about making a post about my Netflix movies because last week I received some coupons to give out to friends so they can get a free month of Netflix. So I sat down this morning and compiled a list of all the Japanese movies I have either already watched, or are in my queue. I really do love Netflix. They have a huge selection of all sorts of movies, and starting at $9.99 a month, it really does beat going to Blockbuster and renting movies. They also have a lot of anime, but I like thier selection of live action stuff better.

I really do like the movies that Viz Pictures have decided to bring over to America, another good starting point in my list. (Linda Linda Linda, Kamikaze Girls, Maiko Haaaan!!!, The Taste of Tea, Love*Com: The Movie, Nana, Nana 2) They are mostly comedies and dramas. I’m also a big fan of Aoi Yu so I have all of her movies on my list. (Hula Girls, Hana & Alice, Honey and Clover, All About Lily Chou-Chou). As far as horror / gore movies, The Machine Girl, Suicide Club, and Ichi the Killer are good places to start.

I only have four 1 month free coupons to Netflix, so it’s first come first serve. In order to use these, you must go to: and enter the priority code. Here are the codes:





To see my list of recommended movies, just read the rest of the post.

    I just finished a one month subscription myself with Netflix and was surprised how many Japanese movies they had. Not too bad. Though I was also disappointed with a lot of the movies.

    Have you seen the movie with a little boy gets dropped off at some old man’s house. The old man is mean and grumpy does not want him so they go on some journey to find his parents. They lie and do all sorts of stuff to get there.
    I can not remember the title of the movie and it was a cute movie. The only other thing I remember was that I had watched it from Netflix and now I do not have it anymore, there is no way for me to go back and try to find it. I only wish to know the title.
    If you know what I am talking about or can help me find it, please email me at

    Well, Netflix doesn’t need to save anything to your hard drive. They actually send out normal DVDs. The watch now feature streams certain movies to your computer, but they are not saved. The movie selection for watching online isn’t as good as their DVD selection. However movies do ship very fast.

    If you liked Suicide Club, then you may like Noriko’s Dinner Table as well. It’s a branch off of Suicide Club.

    The only movie I’ve seen on that list is Suicide Circle/Club, lol. I really want to see Adrenaline Drive though. But I’ll have to pass up this opportunity to try out Netflix as I am running out of space on my HDD. :(

    Nice list. Unfortunately for me NetFlix doesn’t operate in the UK, so for now I will have to stick to getting ripped off or using bittorrent.
