Gegege no Kitarou, Site Renewed and Episode 1 Preview Up

Just one week before this classic show about Japanese Youkai airs on April Fools Day. They're showing it during the mornings from 09:00~09:30 and I guess it's because of the toned down look of the show. I remember the 1990s version looked a little more creepier than this. But anyway, head over to the site and browse around some of the new...


Sega’s Shining RPG Series to Get Own Anime Show

Ah, so many major games turning Anime such as Devil May Cry in August and Blue Dragon starting next month. Now Sega's Shining RPG series is getting its own show named "Shining Tears X Wind" too and starts a day before Blue Dragon on April 6th. Characters from both "Shining Tears" and the upcoming "Shining Wind" will appear in the show....


Death Note Anime, OP2 Version 2 Appears in Episode 23

Not that many as far as I could tell but if you're used to skipping the OP then you'll obviously miss them. I would have skipped the OP too if the song hasn't managed to grow on me... Anyway, I found two main changes and the first was how the scrolling text at the beginning has been rearranged. The Korean Hangul for "Death Note" ???? is fainter...


Ghibli’s Next Miyazaki Movie Revealed, “Ponyo on a Cliff”

Four years after "The Moving Castle", Hayao Miyazaki has revealed his next animated movie "Gake no Ue no Ponyo". According to Ghibli World's interpretation of a feature in "NNN News Real Time", the story doesn't seem to be based around a novel this time. The tale is going to be centred on 5 year old boy named Sousuke and how a princess...


Death Note Anime, New Crazy OP and ED with Episode 20

Was going to post about this Tuesday night but been really busy writing reviews, guides and uni work. WTH happened to the Death Note OP?! Madhouse has truely gone mad with the new opening. But it looks so wicked that it's hilarious! I'm sure it surprised everyone who's been following the show. Watch it in action at everyone's favourite...


Doraemon: Nobita's Dinosaur 2006 Remake Thoughts

Just found time to watch it tonight after getting it from the usual site where I get my Anime RAWs from. This is a remake of the 1980 animation which was the very first Doraemon theatrical feature. I don't know how the original movie's story starts off because my VHS video copy has a good chunk of the beginning cut off. Probably half an hour...


Gegege no Kitarou is Back! The Fifth Series Begins This April!

This was one of my favourite shows when I was a small boy and still is but too bad I can't seem to find it anywhere. Not surprising since the show's first series goes way back to 1968 (no, I'm not that old!) which was then followed by other series in 1971, 1985 and 1996 (this was probably the one I saw a few episodes of). So, I'm glad that it's back...


Gin-iro no Kami no Agito, A Mish Mash of Deja Vu Scenes?

Got round to watching the movie I bought during my recent trip to HK and it's alright but nothing memorable like the actual Miyazaki Ghibli movies. I won't describe what it's about because you can read all about it at the official English site. A lot of the scenes reminded me of different Miyazaki movies namely Laputa, Princess Mononoke...
