We’re here once again to talk about the power of the dash. Some people prefer heat seeking missiles or the old fashioned machine guns but a quick burst of speed will always be our personal favorite. There’s nothing quite like punching it when someone attempts to come up from behind and leaving them in your wake. Read more>>

That’s right, we’re back! After sleeping off the Thanksgiving dinner we have returned to bring you the latest in news and reviews, or at least the latest news right behind Japan. Damn time zones. We talk about deaths in the anime industry, a cafe with less then subtle perverse dishes, and the exclusive Japanese Godzilla video game will be making it’s way to the states. Then it’s onto a Discussion Thread that is little more then left overs now, because it’s all about Thanksgiving! What anime characters would you bring to a Thanksgiving dinner? And finally, we warp the show up with reviews. Ichigo is first up to bat with a review of Akatsuki no Yona, then TC reviews the thieving Magic Kaito 1412, and Red reviews the sexually charged Kenzen Robo Daimidaler. Now hang on, because Red is bringing back the segment sound effects! That’s right, he’s actually doing something more then drinking and wishing a yandere would stab him with love. Be sure to let us know what you think of them, and any suggestions or comments on future show sound effects.

In the great tradition of mashups comes a film from the nineties that takes Short Circuit and Friday the 13th and blends them without care for the end result. We do our joint review, based on a recommendation, on Evolver from 1995. And like all movies about technology from that decade, it features VR helmets and polygon graphics that would embarrass anyone who’s ever held a joystick.

Luckily for everyone, the main thrust of the film has little to do with shitty video games as imagined by a screenwriter who only has a fuzzy impression based on a round of Donkey Kong he watched the local kids play while washing his sheets at the laundromat. It is instead focused on a toy robot built by Q who decides that people suck and could use a little more hatchet in the face to make them right. The robot, Evolver, is then thwarted by the kid from Dutch and his designated love interest, the girl who was on one episode of Clarissa Explains It All. 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.

We’re proud to present you an interview with Roland Kelts. He is a lecturer at Tokyo University and author of the book “Japanamerica: How Japanese pop culture has invaded the US”. We talk a lot about cultural and business differences between the US and Japan. I really enjoyed talking with him and I hope you enjoy this great interview.

We’re proud to present you an interview with one of my personal heroes, Yutaka Izubuchi. His record speaks for himself, but just the fact that he is responsible for the creation and designs of my favorite series, RahXephon is enough to make me giddy. So I hope you enjoy this.

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.

Welcome to a new series wherein Tim and Vanessa discuss one of the most complicated and annoying issues. No, not that. So like, complicated and annoying within pop culture. No, not social issues within media. Something a bit more nitpicky.

Fine, we’ll just tell you. We’re talking about the adaptations of books over to film. Our discussions won’t be nitpicking the specific details unless we feel it impacts the plot, message or if we feel it was just too damn lazy.

For our inaugural episode, we decided upon Stardust. There’s plenty of talk about the movie, the history of the book/comic and some of the more unfortunate implications. We still maintain that Tristran’s mother is the most dangerous black magic practitioner this side of the wall. Read more>>
