For Yoko with Love: Platina Jazz

Yoko Kanno is one of the most amazing composers and band leaders ever, and it is always a treat to discover someone new singing her praises by playing her music (and yes, I do mean that literally). Back in 2009 a band called Platina Jazz got together to create covers of the best Jazz music […]

A Ghost of its Own (GITS explored)

If you don’t already know the questions this anime answered 30 years ago and continues to answer today, this video will explain it to you. This exploration of the Ghost In The Shell universe was created by Beyond Ghibli, and he has many more where this came from.

New Mirai Trailer

Mamoru Hosoda’s latest film, Mirai will be in theaters for a limited engagement beginning November 29th courtesy of GKIDS. They have just released another trailer for it, and I wanted to share it here. If the creators name sounds familiar but you’re not sure why, some of his previous works included The Girl Who Leapt […]

Kisida Kyodan & The Akishin Rockets: Stray

A brand new song from Kisida Kyodan & THE Akishin Rocket, it is another great Anime OP track, this time from Hakata Tonkotsu Ramens. The Cd/DVD music video combo was released earlier this week (February 7th), and the anime series just started airing at the beginning of January. The series only has 5 episodes out […]

Something to Watch: Discs

I missed seeing it in the theaters, and it hasn’t been streaming anywhere that I could find (not even on Funimation who have the North American rights), but now it is finally available on Disc: Your Name. Featuring music by the Radwimps, it pretty much broke every theater record in Japan, and won multiple awards. […]

Something to Watch: Discs

Continuing the reboot of the franchise, War for the Planet of the Apes could be a modern retelling of the period in history when the Cro-Magnon committed genocide by wiping out the Neanderthals. Teen Wolf: The Complete Series is not quite as epic but still has its moments. The Emoji Movie is just silly animated […]

Something to Watch: Discs

Transformers: The Last Knight looks like the best of the action films this week, but 2:22 may give it a pretty good run for its money. For those looking for a western animation, Mune: Guardian of the Moon looks like your best option this time around. We will do our best to pretend no one […]

Something to Watch: Discs

The best movie from the DC Cinematic Universe to date, Wonder Woman is riveting, and it looks like they filled the disc version with a TON of features. Up until this movie I have much preferred their television presentations, and we get one of them as well in the form of Arrow: The Complete Fifth […]

Something to Do: Movies

The movie I want to see this weekend is Hirune-hime: Shiranai watashi no monogatari, or Napping Princess for the English title (the Japanese title literally means My baby girl: My story I do not know). It is a sci-fi story about a girl who dreams the future, taking place during the Tokyo Olympics in 2020. […]
