It’s time to pick a side and stand up for what you believe in!
Oh, Sony, why are you doing this to me?
If life were like a movie, then it’d have to have a soundtrack, and Japanese net users have found a song that turns any encounter into one of blossoming love.
Looking forward to Death Note 2016? Then you’ll be excited to hear that an original cast member from the previous films is returning as a familiar character!
The main cast and other details for Death Note 2016 have been announced!

Feeling lonely? Head to the Philippines! Ex-adult video star Maria Ozawa says she’s looking for someone to snuggle with during her first winter in the country.
If you like being scared out of your mind, then you’re in for a real treat—two of film’s scariest characters will be appearing together in a movie in 2016!
Hopefully, the second installment TRIes a little harder in the story department.
Next year will mark the 20th anniversary of the popular Detective Conan anime franchise, and details on the upcoming 20th film of the series are gradually being revealed!
With part one of the live-action movie adaptation released for the first time outside Japan on Wednesday this week, fans of the hugely successful manga and anime series Attack on Titan were no doubt incredibly excited to see their favourite giant-slaying characters brought to life by living, breathing Japanese actors.
Little did then know, however, that when one of the English subtitles added to the movie for its North American release would appear on-screen, it would remain there—for a full 20 minutes—while the action continued behind it.
It’s been a bit of a rough year for the kingpins of Japanese cuteness over at Sanrio Co. The mega-hit Frozen has been taking up a sizable share of the merchandising market regularly occupied by their geometric kitties and bunnies causing overseas income to slide by as much as 14.5 percent compared to the previous year.
Hello Kitty fans needn’t worry, however. That’s hardly enough to put the company in jeopardy, but it is causing Miss Kitty to unsheathe her claws and go on the attack. If movies like Frozen are going to cut in on Sanrio’s turf, well then, Sanrio will just have to return the favor.
So get ready, because the Hello Kitty movie is already in the works!
Miffy, the adorable fluffy white rabbit from Holland, has several reasons to be angry. Not only has she been to court to kill off Cathy, the doppelgänger bunny character created by Sanrio, she also has to put up with people confusing her for Hello Kitty, and then to top it all off, her creator, Dick Bruna, announced his retirement last year. Sometimes, it’s all too much for a bunny to bear.
So it’s not hard to imagine that Miffy would one day be out for blood, especially if she were to become a flesh-eating zombie. And when you multiply one zombified Miffy with an army of hundreds, things become genuinely terrifying. Take a look at the bunny apocalypse that’s threatening to take down the citizens of Hong Kong and cheer for the group that fights them after the break.
We’ve been told to “let it go” more times than we can count, but fans all around the world continue to show their love for Disney’s Frozen. Even in China, fans flocked to the theater to catch the Frozen fever in 2014 grossing US$48.2 million at the box office.
Well that is one “record” the Disney movie is going to have to let go, as another animated movie has managed to surpass those numbers in 2015. It’s not another Pixar or Disney powerhouse though, this movie originates from Japan. If you want to know what movie beat up the Frozen juggernaut, you’ll have to stand by (me).
Following the success of other popular toy franchises turned Hollywood films such as Transformers and G.I. Joe, Paramount Pictures has announced that they have acquired the rights to make a live-action Beyblade film.
Godzilla, the gargantuan dinosaur-like creature that has starred in roughly 30 movies to date, has to be one of the most famous characters to ever come out of Japan. Since its first appearance on the screen in 1954, Godzilla has captured the fascination of fans around the world and has become one of the most recognizable symbols of Japan. Yes, there just seems to be something about Godzilla that we can’t get enough of, and even if you’re not a hard-core kaiju fan, we’re guessing that many of you saw the Hollywood movie that was released last year.
Now, the monster action in that movie was certainly spectacular to look at, but don’t you think it would be interesting to see some ideas for monsters that didn’t appear in the film? Well, that’s exactly what we’re sharing with you here today!
Okay, folks! Remember what day this past April 18 was? Well, here in Japan, April 18 may be Invention Day, but this year, it was also the opening day of the movie Dragon Ball Z: Resurrection ‘F’! Since we’d already reported a fair bit of information about the new Dragon Ball movie, we thought it was only appropriate that we go see it on opening day and give you our impressions.
This time, fortunately, we didn’t have to wait 17 years for a new Dragon Ball movie like we did for the previous film, Dragon Ball Z: Battle of Gods. What’s more, we managed to get a ticket to a screening with special appearances by voice actors and idol group Momoiro Clover Z! Join us for our take on the movie and a report on all the excitement on opening day.
