As always, we’ve come around to manga reviews. By some serendipitous happenstance, Tim managed to review a request that was received to Weltall’s inbox a few days earlier. Sure, it might have been mentioned once or twice before but we can pretend that it was meant to be.

Tim tackles Jojo’s Bizarre Adventure by reading the first two volumes. It chronicles the appearance of Dio who attempts to usurp the Joestar family fortune from Jojo. This is, in fact, the plot of the story and not something we made up to mock it. We won’t spoil the plot but the foreigner turns out to be the bad guy and fights Jojo to what might not be his death.

This week on Video Game Pulse, we have a supervised show filled with mini-golf and movies. We start off sharing theories about potato salad before transcending onto the theorized doom of Twitch by Google and talks about the importance of pre-orders. After the news, we skip the forums and finish off with Millennium’s thoughts about the beta version of Destiny, amongst other things he has done over the last 2 weeks. All this and more up next on VGP 196! Read more>>

It’s day three and I feel like a guard who can’t adventure anymore. Seriously it’s pretty pathetic I was using the camera tripod as a walking staff. Getting old sucks, but Comic Con is awesome. Listen in to find out why.

The alcohol is making it hard to write anything witty or important here. So listen in and enjoy.

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 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.
