There’s probably a point where some poor bastard mangaka was sitting at their desk and trying desperately to think up a story for a deadline. “Gee, if only something would fall from the sky and knock my ass out so I have an excuse my editor will accept.” At that point, a coconut was conveniently dropped by a passing pair of pigeons some nut had tied together with string and bean them.

After the coma wore off they penned the story Suashi no Meteorite, which Tim reviews. In it, the main character comes home to find their house demolished by a wild meteor. Not only has his house been destroyed but his neighbors apparently have all taken bucket loads of tranquilizers because no one bothered to call the authorities in the interim. It turns out that the meteor contained a god which he summoned by wishing on a passing star. Hilarity then ensues.

Weltall then delves into a manwha titled Familyman. It’s a very dull slice of life comic where the titular family man works in a factory, sends money back to his wife and kids and suffers massive facial trauma due to lack of sleep. Scarred for life and unable to find work, he finds refuge in dressing up as an in-universe superhero and engaging in shenanigans.

This week on VG Pulse, we are still unsupervised but find ways to continue onwards. We start out with side notes of new laptops and new cars, before heading off to the regular news in which we discuss stories of Blizzard’s canceled MMO and ATLUS taking responsibility for the quality of their products. After the news we go over the forums, and we finish off with Millennium’s review of Receiver and my review of Shin Megami Tensei IV. All this and more up next on VGP203! -Aki Read more>>

For our joint review this week, we decided to reach back to the days when reality shows had just begun to dip with the appearance of the cancerous lesion known as Paris Hilton. The, now, long forgotten movie The Hunted from 2003. Though we were intrigued by The Hunted from 1995, featuring Chris Lambert, of Highlander fame, and may have to watch that some time. Read more>>

Sometimes life is just full of surprises. Like a train that manifests and runs you off the road when you start singing Ironic by Alanis Morisette. Other times it can be fairly predictable. Like when Tim digs into his list of requests to find a manga to review. Read more>>

This week on VG Pulse, we have ezmails! Yes, two to be specific! We start off with sidenotes of melting laptops, great customer service at Wal-Mart, and new cars on the horizon. After the sidenotes, we dive into the ezmails and give a huge thank you to Ocarinist Sid for doing us a massive favor! After the ezmails, we head off into the actual news, where we discuss thoughts about the recent acquisition of Mojang by Microsoft and the latest in the Anita Sarkeesian harassment case. We finish off the show with Millennium’s final review of World Of Tanks! All this and more up next on VGP 202! -Aki Read more>>

Greetings everyone. In place of an AP show this week I offer this interview of 萩尾 望都 Hagio Moto. We were lucky in that Weltall was able to get an interview with this pioneer of shojo manga. I have undertaken the transcription of the Japanese portion of the conversation, for those interested. The translator that was provided was very good. In addition to translation Ms. Hagio’s answers he also added some extra context as he felt was needed. I only transcribed the questions and the Japanese section of the interview.

Many of us have undoubtedly at one point or another wished ill for our employers. Such was the case for a twenty-nine year old Elementary teacher in Yokohama’s Tsurumi-ku. This teacher took out his frustrations by writing blogs on the Internet. In said blogs the teacher stated that he wanted to kill the Vice-Principal of his school. He also stated,  “If a teacher is murdered, it will be me who’s responsible, for certain.” Read more>>

There’s been a lot of hype surrounding the new Pokemon themed Shinkansen (bullet train) by the JR East company running here in Japan. Well today I took a trip on it. It was the Asama Shinkansen between Tokyo and Nagano. We start off with a pic of good old Pikachu and the fire monkey (names will not be included other than Pikachu because I don’t know them. If you care look it up yourself).

Forty-Nine year old Tadashi Usami was found dead in an empty swimming pool around six-twenty A.M. on Thursday Morning. His body was found face down in the pool of a residential neighborhood. Police believe that Usami was on his way home to his hotel when he stumbled into the back yard believing this was his home. Having been drinking for most of the evening with a colleague near JR Ebisu station, Usami being extremely intoxicated was unable to tell the difference between this house and his hotel. Alcohol is believed to be the main factor. Foul play is not suspected.
