I don’t know much about figure skating. But I know that figure skater Kevin Reynolds, who performed to the Cowboy Bebop theme song while dressed as the show’s main character Spike, totally nailed it.
I was a happy child, but I didn’t have such a happy childhood. Other kids didn’t get my weird vibe, especially in elementary and middle school. And one year in particular, we moved to a new city and a new school, and things got ugly. Only one thing kept me from losing my shit: Star Blazers.
Maybe not! It depends, really. But since this Korean cosplayer has a head full of hair, she needed a bald cap to pull off her One-Punch Man outfit.
At first, I thought the 3,980 yen (US$34) price tag was the craziest thing about this Neon Genesis Evangelion Unit-01 popcorn bucket. Nope! The light-up eyes are.
It’s winter. It’s cold outside. That is, unless you are in warm country or in the Southern Hemisphere. Whatever, let’s stay inside and watch anime.
Star Wars is very, very popular in Japan. Guess this means, though, that Yo-Kai Watch is more popular?
Anime can be confusing to those who haven’t experienced much of it, with its tropes and terminology. If you’re interested in anime but, don’t know where to start, we at AniTAY have made this Beginner’s Guide to Anime, trying to provide a one-stop shop to familiarize yourself with the ins and outs, vocabulary, and…
You might know tons about Pikachu. How the character used to look slightly different or how Pikachu adores ketchup. But maybe you don’t know these tidbits.
Recently, we got our first look at Mobile Suit Gundam Thunderbolt, an adaptation of the classic manga of the same name, that might as well be called Mobile Suit Cowboy Bebop. But now we’ve got an extended glimpse, and it’s making us yearn for more space jazz and space robots. CHECK OUT THAT DRUM SOLO.
Cowboy Bebop has been off the air for nearly 15 years—but its legacy remains potent. Case in point: A new exhibition of science-fiction-inspired sculptures and artworks includes a brand new sculpture of Faye Valentine, one of the show’s kickass space bounty hunters.
The first footage for the newest Gundam series Thunderbolt has arrived, and it’s exciting for a couple of reasons: 1) it’s based on a hit manga that takes place during the events of the original 1979 Mobile Suit Gundam anime series, and 2) it looks and sounds just like a Cowboy Bebop sequel.
While the Hollywood Ghost in the Shell movie with Scarlett Johansson lurches forward, a new GiTS stage play recently opened in Tokyo.
The Fate franchise is built entirely around legendary heroes fighting it out for the Holy Grail. And the newest game in the series, Fate/Grand Order gives anime makeovers to more of the greatest figures from myth and history than ever before.
The leaves are turning red and you know what that means? New anime—54 of them to be exact. So let’s take a look at them one by one so you can see which pique your interest.
Ghost in the Shell has always been about futuristic stuff, so seeing it in 3D in a planetarium-like dome was rather fitting.
The short anime comedy Bureau of Proto Society takes us to a post-apocalyptic bunker, when the last remnants of humanity live isolated from the world. The bunker’s historians gather each day to try to debate how the world ended—and once you see their historical sources, you’ll understand their confusion.
For the first time in thirty years, there’s a new Lupin the Third animated television series. So far, the show certainly seems promising.
Having reached the halfway point of the Summer anime season, most series currently airing have settled into their groove. For those out there for whom forty-seven new shows are a bit too much to stomach, we at Kotaku East are here to offer our recommendations for what we feel are the cream of the crop.
The new Dragonball Z movie, titled Resurrection F, is really more of a remix than a resurrection. Or, better still, a greatest hits compilation, albeit one where the hits happen at light-speed and can destroy the planet. It’s a collection of everything you enjoy about DBZ, but it’s also all stuff you’ve seen before.
