As we're experiencing the final week of August, Televi-kun's recent issue has revealed some new information on Kamen Rider Drive, and it looks like the next show will have a police theme to go with the car motif. That being said, the show's main hero, Shinnosuke Tomari, happens to be a police officer when he's not kicking evil villains. Show More Summary
As Garage Hero continues to work hard on completing Gun Caliber, the team has gone ahead and created a page for Hayate: Asakusa's Ninja Hero, a ninja-themed tokusatsu project that's aimed towards children. At the moment, the only thing that we know about Hayate is that it features a ninja who protects Tokyo's Asakusa district from evil. Show More Summary
Despite its pacing problems and general lack of an overarching story, I enjoyed Persona 3 The Movie: #1 Spring of Birth. As far as animated film adaptations of long games go, I think it did a novel job of compressing hours of gameplay and story into about 90 minutes. Show More Summary

Bleach is lookin' good, if you don't mind my saying. I don't mean that by the state of its plot or the quality of its writing, but I do think that this last chapter has put out surprisingly striking visuals, a strong contrast to the relatively lackluster panels of the last few weeks. Read more...

At Otakon 2014 Japanator was fortunate enough to grab a few minutes with one of the most prolific voice actresses in otaku anime and games of the past several years. Saori Hayami appeared at the con on behalf of Aniplex and had a killer itinerary in her first visit to Baltimre. Show More Summary
Just a couple of weeks ago - when the last chapter of Naruto hit the presses - I mentioned how it unusual it was that Kakashi got a straight-up power upgrade, thanks to dear, departed Obito. After all, the typical high-stakes NarutoShow More Summary
Yikes. I never expected to be concerned about Sword Art Online II’s well-being. While there was a bit of hope for A-1 to get back on track, things are taking a slight turn for the worse with the way how they followed up on the show’s latest conflict. From the looks of it, the SAO II might be in a grim state until things pick up again. Read more...

The always exquisite Hokkaido native, Eir Aoi is back with a highly energetic new single, fully cement herself as one of J-Pop's most promising new artists. When she burst on the scene in 2011, her quick rise to fame from the pages of Nico Nico Douga was so quick, that I wasn't sure she would have much staying power. Show More Summary
Back in 2006, I was going through a major case of anime fatigue. It seemed like as anime was gaining popularity here in the west, I was slowly not finding any television shows to my liking. There was definitely a shift in palette, and unfortunately every show just wasn't catching my eye. Show More Summary
When Hanayamata first introduced Yaya, she played with a band. If we logically assume the story is about the formation of a yosakoi club, then the band probably has to go. How does it happen? More importantly, how does Yaya's identity,...Show More Summary
OK, I'll admit it right now: The main reason I'm posting about VA-11 HALL-A, a indie bartending game, is because of its website, located at a domain called (and I'm not kidding) Waifubartending.com. These people know what's up. It also...Show More Summary
