Much as the header image would lead you to believe, the latest episodes of Inou Battle aren't about hard rock, starting a band, or even the chuuni value of music appreciation. No, instead the stories of episodes 5 and 6 are about Inou...Show More Summary
It's time again for another dose of hot music, and today's offering comes to you courtesy of up-and-comer Yunchi (aka Yunchi) and her new single, "Wonderful Wonder World". You may recognize it as the ending theme for the current season of Log Horizon. Show More Summary
Shirobako continues to be an important anime series for anyone that's interested in how their favorite Japanese cartoons are made. Not to say that it's some kind of primer for how the industry works, though it goes further deeper into...Show More Summary
Now that Japan Animator Expo has uploaded its second anime short, it seems that the project has yet to create a solid piece. While Hill Climb Girl gave us a simple premise about bicycle racing that evolved into a love story, I felt that...Show More Summary
As Gundam Build Fighters Try continues to impress us with its Solid Winning Streak, Studio Megaane has used his Retro Gunpla building skills to turn the show's opening into an 8-bit masterpiece. All in all, Megaane's take on "Cerulean"...Show More Summary
Let's hope this lady isn't in charge when someone yells fire. Staged or not? I can't quite tell. I'm actually hope so.

The new issue of V Jump has announced information that a new Dragon Ball Z film will be released on April 25th of 2015. There's very few details at this time, besides the fact very exciting fact that Akira Toriyama will be developing the story and characters directly this time around, in a "funny" story.

It's been a little while since I checked in with Japanese rocks Hello Sleepwalkers, but their newest single has me doubting my choices. The high energy track, Hyakkiyakou is full of some really incredible vibes, really showcasing everything great about the band. Show More Summary
I don't think Square Enix are ever going to make the much-demanded HD remake of Final Fantasy VII, but that doesn't mean we can't dream of how awesome a beloved game can look when done up in modern technology. For artist Scott Honeycutt, the beloved game in question might be Final Fantasy VIII. Show More Summary
Yes, it is a bit odd for barely a day to have gone by since the last Inou Battle recap, but this latest episode upends the show's status quo in a great way that's hard not to want to talk about. Better still, it casts many of my previous comments about Inou Battle's "true nature" in doubt. And in this case, I'm quite glad to be wrong. Read more...
Wow. That was fast. I didn't expect Viz to release another Sailor Moon dub clip so soon. At least this means that we can finally see Minako/Sailor Venus' new voice in action. Overall, Cherami Leigh knocked it out of the ball park, which...Show More Summary
Ladies and Gentlemen. Once again, I'd like to remind everyone that Hell has officially frozen over. With Ultraman Leo now streaming on Crunchyroll, I think it's safe to say that the underworld has become a winter wonderland. Thanks to...Show More Summary
If you've got a property as popular as One Piece floating around, it's a good idea to give it a place to weigh anchor in the unfriendly seas of the internet. I'm sure that's what Eiichiro Oda and company were thinking when they opened...Show More Summary
As Viz prepares for the release of Sailor Moon's second box set, the company has uploaded a new preview that shows off Makoto/Sailor Jupiter's new voice. Also, it seems that Viz's going back to YouTube again, which might have to do with...Show More Summary
Though we took quite a break between installments of our coverage of Gundam Build Fighters Try last time, I'm not about to let a good battle pass by, especially not as things are beginning to heat up for Team Try Fighters. Plus, this week's engagement, though short, is a lovely treat for anyone who loved the Universal Century's more realistic spinoffs. Read more...
The news of Sayumi Michishige's graduating from Morning Musume '14 sure got me bummed out. Just when I was feeling bad, fellow Hello! Project member, and ex-Morning Musume member Reina Tanaka has returned with a new single from her rock project, Lovendo?. Show More Summary
Ever since Final Fantasy XIII hit the PC way back in the halcyon days of last month, it was pretty much a foregone conclusion that the rest of Square Enix's grand, ill-fated trilogy would eventually make it over as well. And now theShow More Summary
When last we checked in with Bleach, Quincy big boss and mutton chop aficionado Ywach had pulled a real jerk move by regifting a whole buttload of power from his Sternritter on the ground. The intended destination of this "take from the poor, give to the rich" approach to group dynamics was clear enough, and in this chapter, we deal with the repercussions. Read more...
We only have to wait until January until we return to the mean street of Ikebukero, but for those who can't wait there's a new version of the Durarara!!x2 trailer. This version features the new song HEADHUNT, by Japanese garage rockers OKAMOTO. Show More Summary
