MegaBots: Because Death By Natural Causes Sounded Too Easy

MegaBots: Because Death By Natural Causes Sounded Too Easy

Articles, Blog, Culture, News, Tech, Uncategorized, Video Update, Videos
In Mobile Suit Gundam, Pacific Rim, and Super Sentai, giant robots wreak havoc across burning landscapes under flashes of lightning and the roar of mechanized battlecries passionately echoing across their battlefields. The concept of such a thing happening in reality seems farfetched and fraught with so many potential problems that it makes the pursuit of such a future seem like it may not really be worth the effort. Enter MegaBots Inc., who puts forth the effort so we don't have to, to results that, if nothing else, are certainly interesting. In 2015, the tech company issued a challenge to Japan's Suidobashi Heavy Industry to do battle, pitting the giant robots representing each group against each other. Despite the fact that this is clearly insane, they agreed, and so the fight was ...
Full-Blown Fullmetal Alchemist Goes Fully Live-Action, In Full Trailer

Full-Blown Fullmetal Alchemist Goes Fully Live-Action, In Full Trailer

Animation, Anime, Articles, Blog, Comics, Movies & TV, News, Uncategorized, Video Update
Fullmetal Alchemist, the story that refuses to die, will not stop until it's inhabited every entertainment medium known to man, twice. Inspired by the original manga from Arakawa Hiromu, the journey of two brothers in a fantastical world has been chronicled multiple times in animated form, to rapturous praise by many, and critical side-eyes by a few. We imagine the same will be the case when their latest incarnation, in the form of this new live-action film, comes to the big screen this December. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9NRt4keIZZk I haven't seen more than a few episodes of the anime years ago (shut up, I know) but, at the very least, the film looks visually striking. The effects work is far beyond what I'd expected to see, and the scenery and costumes are all lovely. Apparentl...
Game of Thrones: The Anime – Winter is Animated

Game of Thrones: The Anime – Winter is Animated

Animation, Anime, Movies & TV, News, Uncategorized, Video Update, Videos
The war for the Iron Throne just got a little more epic, with this fun opening credits sequence from French Youtuber Malec. Inspired by the wildly popular fantasy drama series Game of Thrones, this interprets the battle to save Westeros, and the many dramatic turns it takes, in a fashion only Japanese animation can deliver. Or at least something like it. Check out the fan-made opening credits sequence here, but newcomers be warned. There be spoilers in these waters. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=efD3nmwF-IM I love that the music, while evoking the typical sound of classic anime openers, also adopts the style of the actual Game of Thrones theme, one of the most iconic of its kind. Interspersing Japanese lyrics with seemingly random English adds the perfect touch. Particularly the phra...
‘Star Wars: The Last Jedi’ Trailer – Embracing Destiny

‘Star Wars: The Last Jedi’ Trailer – Embracing Destiny

Articles, Blog, Movies & TV, News, Uncategorized, Video Update, Videos
The Star Wars saga continues with the latest trailer for Star Wars: The Last Jedi, second in the new Skywalker trilogy, returning us to a galaxy far, far away at a time of great unrest. Director Rian Johnson steps up to the plate to bring us another taste of the visual feast coming this December. And when the last trailer ends with a grizzled Luke claiming that the famed heroes known as the Jedi must end, it has a lot to live up to. Not only does The Last Jedi have the responsibility of carrying on the torch passed on from The Force Awakens, JJ Abrams' first chapter in the trilogy, it must expand upon the characters and their universe in fresh, interesting ways. And it must handle with grace and care what we suspect is the final full performance of Carrie Fisher (General Leia Organa),...
Brave Storm – Because Kamen Riders Still Gotta Eat

Brave Storm – Because Kamen Riders Still Gotta Eat

Here's a thing. In a grim future, where humanity is at the edge of extinction (because what other futures are there, really?), five brothers set about changing their unenviable fate and a giant robot is born from the ashes of their effort. Thus is the plot of Brave Storm, the reimagined tokusatsu film that merges the mythologies of two special effects drama series, Silver Kamen and Super Robot Red Baron. Still with me? Because I have names and titles, some of which may be of interest to fans of the Kamen Rider and Ultraman franchises. This movie has some deep cuts in the world of toku. Leading the cast is a notable line-up of tokusatsu actors, including Watanabe Shu (Eiji, Kamen Rider OOO) and Yamamoto Chihiro (Laiha, Ultraman Geed). Watanabe is seen in the trailer piloting what looks...

Pacific Rim: Uprising Trailer – Back For More Monster Mayhem

Guillermo Del Toro's giant monster mash Pacific Rim is the little movie franchise that could, still trucking after unfavorable returns in the domestic box office a few years ago. But stronger international support gives the super-robot actioner a new lease on life with director Steven S. DeKnight's Pacific Rim: Uprising. Let's check out the trailer and hope this opportunity hasn't been wasted. When word came down that Del Toro would get another chance to pit titanic Jaegers against city-stomping Kaiju, his passionate fanbase let out a sigh of relief, quickly turning to caution as it was announced that the monster maestro would not be returning to the director's chair for this project. Instead, we have DeKnight of TV's Spartacus and Daredevil taking the reigns. Let's ponder the results...
Review: Kamen Rider Build SODO Figures Wave 1

Review: Kamen Rider Build SODO Figures Wave 1

Kamen Rider, Toku, Toys
Well, I haven't hidden my disdain for this year's Kamen Rider toy gimmick very well, but these figures are everything the BCR line should have been and more! I present to you all the SODO line of figures for Kamen Rider Build. Wave 1 contains 3 figures, 2 Best Matches (Rabbit/Tank and Gorilla/Mond) and 1 Trial form (Harinezumi/Soujiki). All of these figures are great, they're show accurate, they articulate beautifully and they can swap around like the show and maintain all the great articulation. The only potential downside (completely dependent on the individual) is the use of stickers, tho if you watch the video to the end you'll see I've provided a solid solution to your potential sticker pealing nightmares. At the end of the day this line is cheaper than 1 BCR figure, articulates be...

The excitement lasts all night long in the new Kamen Rider Climax Fighters video game, ready to Rider Kick its way into English-speaking homes this winter. Featuring superheroes from across the Kamen Rider television franchise battling it out for supremacy on a grand stage (because reasons), to decide once and for all who really starts on a climax. Take a gander at the sick trailer, featuring the dulcet tones of PANDORA and the Kamen Rider Girls, providing the soundtrack to this epic battle royale. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-BVUClirzvo Well, they already had my curiosity, but seeing the video open with Kamen Rider Faiz Axel, now they have my attention. Joining him in this fighting game event are Kamen Rider Den-O, Kamen Rider Gaim, Kamen Rider Double, the new Kamen Rider Build, a...

Tatsunoko Productions celebrates 55 years of badassery with the animated crossover event, Infini-T Force. The CG anime series gathers heroes from four of its classic titles to form a new band of superpowered saviors. Dating as far back as 1972, these iconic characters have been through many iterations across the decades, finally arriving together in this television story that unifies them all in grand fashion. In case the amusingly on-the-nose meta-joke in the name "Infini-T" doesn't ring any bells, this team consists of four main players, nearly all of which have had some connection to the English-speaking world, even if only in a Six Degrees of Kevin Bacon sort of way. First there's Ken the Eagle from Science Ninja Team Gatchaman. His anime adventures are well-known to anime fans...

Eren Yaeger is back to put the hurt on some Titans in this video game adaptation of the wildly successful anime series Attack on Titan. This western release chronicles the show's second season, furthering the adventures of the last surviving heroes of a race overrun with enormous man-eating giants. Let the chaos begin. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jzGlOhufQdA&t=1s Those who have never touched greatness and witnessed its majesty should do themselves a favor and check out the anime, based on Isayama Hajime's manga of the same name. This upcoming release takes its cues from the intense second season, dubbed Attack on TItan 2, deepening the mysteries surrounding the Titans and those who fight against them, using their Omni-Directional Maneuvering Gear like ancient Spider-Men, swingi...
