Something to Do: Movies

Shin Gojira AKA Godzilla Resurgence is in theaters as of tomorrow, and runs for one week. On Friday Max Steel is the combination of human Max McGrath and alien Steel, who become the superhero when they have to. This is a spinoff of a TV series based on an action figure, so it is somewhat […]

Sword Art Online The Movie -Ordinal Scale- Trailer

The announcement is even more exciting than the trailer; the theatrical release of Sword Art Online The Movie -Ordinal Scale- on February 18, 2017, is no longer exclusive to Japan. It will simultaneously be released in a thousand theaters world wide, including here in the US. Based on a brand new story by Reki Kawahara, […]

MetaFive, Kimonos

I really enjoy Yukihiro Takahashi’s new project MetaFive, they are amazing. The band member who is their primary singer is Leo Imai, and he used to be with a band called the Kimonos. The first track is MetaFive’s Maisie’s Avenue, the second is the Kimonos Soundtrack To Murder, and the 3rd is Kimonos Almost Human.

Japanese Commercials

Every now and then the commercials that JPCMHD posts are particularly strange, and this is one of those weeks. Some of these I can’t even tell what they are selling, but they are still quite amusing to watch.


Japan’s Superfly has been rocking out for a number of years, piling up a ton of great songs in the process, and I thought it was time to share a few more. The first track is 2011’s Beep, the second is Force from 2012, the third is from their 2015 album White.
