Enamored by the book’s realistic pictures, Miyuki is sucked into the book. The book turns out to be Cinderella and Miyuki takes the place of Cinderella to act out the book.

By Jmann on November 18, 2012

As you have probably already guessed, Kamen Rider Wizard didn't air last week due to some dumb sporting event or some other nonsense. But I refused to let THAT stop me from reviewing the episode! But now that I've actually SEEN the episode now, I can give you a quick recap and review!

By VIR on November 17, 2012

More Precure? You better believe it.

This week’s episode – entitled Hustle, Nao! The Precure Became Kids!? – begins with Nao’s family playing tag. Nao is invited to play but does not due to the fact that she is no longer a child. Going to the park, Nao meets her friends… only to be rained on by a mysterious substance.

Busters: ready? REVIEW.

This week’s episode entitled Bride in White, Blight in Black starts off with Yoko prancing about in an uncharacteristically good mood. Guess who’s getting married?!

Well, not Yoko (which is a relief to the team). However, Yoko’s first crush – her elementary school teacher Mr. Hasegawa – is getting married, and he has invited Yoko to attend! How odd!

Despite tragedy, I'm ok!

Unless any of you have been living under a rock, you know about the destruction left by hurricane Sandy. Me living in Queens NY, it was in its path.

I'm okay! My family is ok, That's the most important.

Good Smile Wants You To Know How They Paint

By Animaven on November 10, 2012

Ever wonder how the lovely little things we drop so much dough on are made? Lucky for us, Mikatan, who runs Good Smile’s blog, thinks we would enjoy getting a peek behind the scenes at the making of a Nendoroid. 

good smile company

It’s a neat little blog series, especially if you obsess over the fat little chibi the way I (and a lot of others) do. They’re working on painting the faces right now, and it’s kind of an eye-opener (see what I did there?).

SUPER FAKE REVIEW TIME: Kamen Rider Wizard Episode 10: The Search for Spock

By Jmann on November 09, 2012

 

Ok, so it starts out, and Wizard is running around trying to find rings or something. He was all like, "OH! I HAVE TO FIND RINGS OR I'LL GET DIE OR SOMETHING OR OTHER." So he starts running around even FASTER than the speed of fast and is all like ZOOM POW!

Japan Live Cam: Tokyo Trailer

By JoshB on November 07, 2012

This camera is on Ustream and is not always live, but you will have best luck if you go on during Japanese daylight hours. This is a dashboard mounted live camera of a delivery driver in Shinagawa. It's mesmerising.

Bonus points for the live map in the corner.

My Thoughts: Smile Precure! Ep 37

By VIR on November 07, 2012

You know what time it is; it’s time for more Precure! And how appropriate, it’s an election themed episode; I sure hope this ends well.

The episode – entitled Reika’s Worries! A Pure Heart and a Clean Vote – starts off with Reika carrying out her Student Council duties, such as cleaning the school grounds, watering the flowers, and greeting the students upon their arrival.

SUPER REVIEW TIME: Kamen Rider Wizard Episode 9: Dragon's Roar!

By Jmann on November 02, 2012

This is the conclusion to last week's episode. If you haven't watched it yet, please be warned. THERE BE SPOILERS AHEAD, MATEYS.

 


So, last week's episode left us with Kamen Rider Wizard being set on fire and thrown off of a bridge. HOW WILL HE SURVIVE!?

 

My Thoughts: Smile Precure! Ep 36.

By VIR on November 02, 2012

Another week, another supremely colorful and loopy Precure episode to review; however, this week the show went for heartbreaking instead of loopy, something that is always welcomed to butt-up against the all-encompassing happiness.

This episode – entitled Hotblooded!? Akane’s First Love!! – starts out with Akane practicing for volleyball. She trips and falls, and a mysterious blonde-haired blue-eyed man lends a hand to help her up.

Wrath of the Bootleg!

By Animaven on November 01, 2012

It seems like every con I go to proudly boasts their “No bootlegs!” rule, and yet, in every dealer’s room, there they are. It’s not laziness or lack of give-a-crap on the con’s part, it’s just… there. Ubiquitous. Sometimes the dealers know, and sometimes they don’t. However they get there or whatever the dealers and the con know, the bottom line is this: it’s up to the buyer to know what they’re buying. 

Japan Live Cam: Yumoto Station

By JoshB on October 31, 2012

Yumoto Station

One of the ways to feel like you have been to Japan without even going there is to peruse the hundreds of live cameras around the country. In this series I will showcase some of my favorites.

To start out - this camera  is from Yumoto Station in Iwaki, Fukushima Prefecture, Japan. Yeah, the Same Fukushima that has the Nuclear Power Plant. It's a JR East line train on the Jōban Line.
