This week on VG Pulse, we start out with the side note that we really have no side notes, before diving into quite a long discussion about companies trying to copyright words, as well as Millennium’s thoughts on why Konami might be doing what they’re doing, the state of affairs of Konami and Kojima’s split, and the sad state of affairs involved in the production of Silent Hills. After the news we have Xahldera step in to review Borderlands, and finish off with a very good and thoughtful discussion surrounding the last forum topic. All this and more up next on VGP 225! -Aki Read more>>

Hello everyone. Anime Pulse is back and Red is here to lead the way, this week he is joined by RyoWei247 from the community; or as she says we may call her “Rio.” After a brief introduction into the life of Rio, Red kicks things off with the news. This week have some articles like gigantic burgers, memes that resurface thanks to artists on Twitter, and an old ad for Weight Gain. Then it’s into the Discussion- oh wait, yeah, sadly that won’t be happening. The website was down, which means this weeks discussion thread will be moving into next weeks. Sorry about that folks, technical difficulties and all that. So Instead Red and Rio jump straight into reviews. Rio is up first with Death Parade, and Red finishes things off with the first season of Aldnoah.Zero. The race to be the new full-time cohost is almost up folks, so if you haven’t put your ballet in yet then get to it!

Like a slinky pitched over the side of a building, the joint discussion of the week revolves around Fallen (1998). In it, Denzel Washington plays a cop who’s yet to be too old for this shit. He ends up being haunted by a demon who can pass along to someone new with a pat on the shoulder. It ends up inside mister Rogers after he stops to comfort James Gandolfini for being in Get Shorty. This allows Rogers to terrorize a small Midwestern town until he’s hunted down by Werner Von Van Helsing.

Tim then decides to trot out a film that’s aged worse than the Mona Lisa inside of a compost pile in Louisiana, Dr Strange(1978). It features a man for whom no is merely a suggestion and mustache wax gets itemized on his taxes. He plays a psychiatrist who finds out he will now have literal magic hands which he uses to battle Morgan La Fay for custody of Merlin’s bones. Also, the sorcerer supreme has the Jedi mind trick in his bag which he uses no less than three times.

Weltall discusses Brother(2000). It’s about a man named after the honorific for big brother who doesn’t turn out to rule Eastasia. He drops out of the Yakuza and moves to L.A. to find himself. Upon arrival, they go to a wedding, get completely wasted and wake with no memory of the previous night. This culminates with a wild seventeen minute car chase on the highway which ends with Keanu Reeves punching a speeding bus at him.

Late starts aren’t new to anyone in the world, we assume. This is especially true for everyone in the Delayed Puberty Awareness support chain on Tumblr. We began a bit late as recordings were in progress and Weltall’s managa was loading slower than a geriatric lumper.

Tim began with a review of Othello in which an animated doormat wakes up and goes to school. She hangs out with a group of girls who hate her because doormat’s parents gave her the Japanese version of the devil’s dictionary. Luckily doormat’s split personality awakens and begins to get vengeance on her friends.

Weltall then discusses Kangoku Gakuen. It’s about an all girls school that’s forced to allow boys in but only five. They all adjust to school life normally and one of them graduates which honors which he shares with a female friend he never harbored a secret desire for…is what you’d expect if you’ve never seen a manga before. Instead, there are lots of the usual staples. Titties! Fear boners! Shennaigans! Also, random titillation because they forgot porn is easier to find.

Weltall: Kangoku Gakuen – Even if you receive it as a present, burn the book and piss on the ashes.
Tim the Enchanter: Othello – Even if you receive it as a present, burn the book and piss on the ashes.

Originally, we were only scheduled to have an interview with Laura Post. Lucky for us, she brought along some friends of hers, who just happened to also be guests! So we sat down for a nice little chat with Laura (Ahri in League of Legends, Rosalia in Sword Art Online), Lisle Wilkerson (Tekken, Street Fighter), and Julie Rei Goldstein (Risai in Paradise Kiss and Precia Testarossa in Magical Girl Lyrical Nanoha).

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.
