News: Sket Dance to Receive Anime Adaptation

In a somewhat refreshing change of pace this week, we bring you news of yet another manga soon to make the rounds as an anime adaptation. Many may have raised an eyebrow (our apologies to those with a unibrow) at the title since it’s not something you would be likely to stumble upon if you are a “mainstream” reader, but let’s take a look shall we?


Anime: Living the Stereotype Part II

Here you go for page two of what could very well amount to a wild and biased opinion! Read on for the conclusion or if you just feel like taking in some of the ideas exposed on it. You’ll have to admit there’s truth to it, whether you feel like raging on the forums about or not

Fan service

Anime: Living the Stereotype Part I

A few years ago you could argue that Anime was different, that it was a more mature form of entertainment and not “a Chinese cartoon”. The old days had the classic lines of “It’s nothing but perverted misogynistic crap” or “It’s a bunch of spiky haired teenagers with super powers.” Truth be told a bit of a light could be held up towards those stereotypes, now said light has become a damn search light.


News: Fate/Stay Night Rocks The Sales Chart

Fate/Stay Night’s Unlimited Bladeworks has reached the top of the Oricon ranks. Selling over 44,000 copies and taking the number one spot, the film has been a roaring success as its sales figure indicates. Western fans with “morals” (or those that can’t find a decent torrent) can only hope that this leads to a sooner than later localization deal.

Love Ru Darkness

News: To Love-Ru’s Spinoff

To Love-Ru’s new spinoff title launched last week in Japan. Fans of the “old” version may want to pick this one up quickly since it’s basically the same with a huge overhaul in the fan service department. Wait what?

If you think this is a mere tie in for advertisement then read on, because it might be more than just that.

Strike Witches

News: Strike Witches Wraps It Up

Strike Witches’ second season has come to a close. Loyal fans of cutesy girl on girl interaction and excessive fan-service would do well to take one good look at the show one last time. At least until it shows up on DVD or Blu-ray and you can get your hands on it legally (we are not saying there are other means, though.)

Iron Man

News: Iron Man Anime Coming Soon!

It was almost a year ago when we first caught wind of Japan’s take on Marvel’s Iron Man, a superhero known by many especially now that the movies were such a big hit. Sadly, this won’t be a super-sentai kinda deal, just an anime, but can you really complain about that? I very much doubt it.

It's over

News: K-ON! Is Now Officially Over
