The Hollywood adaptation of Ghost in the Shell names their screenplay writer this week, so what are the chances the movie might actually not flop?

I’m a bit late on this. It’s been up for a couple days. But here’s my second news-related video. Ponyo has become America’s 5th highest grossing anime movie in the box office.

Today I have added a couple more pages. They don’t currently have anything on them, but they should within the coming days. The pages are video related, and they separate into Anime and Video Game Conventions videos, and Reviews and Skits videos. I can’t access Blip or YouTube from here at work, so I can’t Read the Rest…

1997 seemed to be the year of the virtual, digital, portable pets. The craze from Japan, starting with the Tamagotchi in 1996, started a frenzy among school-aged children that caused write-ups, detentions, and confiscations in the classrooms across America. And, as lame as it may sound, I was one of those kids who was hooked. Read the Rest…

What can I say about Final Fantasy VII that everyone else on the Internet hasn’t already said? Twelve years ago, this game is what defined the J-RPG on the PlayStation.

As I mentioned in my last blog, I visited the anime convention Project A-Kon 20 up in Dallas, Texas this past weekend. It was just as much fun as was predicted.
