Steins;Gate Official Materials Artbook, Q&A

I've become such a fan of Steins;Gate's story after playing the game I decided I had to find the "official materials" artbook. Unfortunately, since the book was published for the original Xbox360 game 2 years ago and Huke's artwork is so popular, it seems to be sold out everywhere. Fortunately, Amazon JP managed to restock the 2300 Yen...


Steins;Gate - Story Synopsis & Game Mini Review

Interest probably grew in the Otakusphere towards Steins;Gate because of Black Rock Shooter since it is illustrated by the same artist Huke and, I admit it was the art that caught my eye in the first place when I saw an article about the game. Then it was the story line. Since I can't discuss the game spoilers in the forums I might as well...


5 Centimetres Per Second One More Side Novel

Thanks goes to FallingStar for tweeting to me about this! I must have missed Shinkai's tweet about this somehow! It's been over 4 years since 5 Centimetres Per Second premièred in Japan and since then, it's been novelised and manganised. Now it's getting another novel, subtitled "One More Side" - But it's not a sequel. The original 5cm...


Arakawa Under The Bridge, Ichinomiya Family Heirloom Tie Review ::

I was bored of all the ties I keep seeing at the local stores so I thought I'd try to find something unique. When I watched Arakawa Under The Bridge I thought to myself, "I want that tie!" Sure enough, I found the Ichinomiya Family Heirloom Tie by Cospa at the AmiAmi store although it wasn't back in stock until December. For 4725 Yen, I was...

Taking a break from the re-makes we see Doraemon, Nobita and friends meeting an underwater race that as usual, starts off another adventure that reminds us to take good care of nature. The Japanese DVD is out...


Summer Anime 2010 Preview

A number of short series just finished not too long ago including Senkou no Nightraid, Arakawa Under the Bridge and Working!! Really enjoyed the last two for their comedy and slightly less cliché cast of characters thanks to their odd traits. But time for the new season so lets have a look at ten of the shows running in Japan just now....


5 Centimetres Per Second, Cosmonaut Translation Completed

As you'll no doubt already know, a new production blog is up and running for Shinkai's next movie. But while we're waiting for the official site to be up with more details, here's the next part of the novel translated in English, "Cosmonaut" which is told from Kanae's perspective. The water dazzled under the rising sun just above the...
