If you don’t know what Yu-Gi-Oh! is, it’s time to get out from under your rock.

I was instantly attracted to the […]

"The Venture Brothers" Makes Campy a Family Affair

Imagine a wedgie-crippled Jonny Quest screaming as he hobbles through the jungle. Picture the Hardy Boys on acid. Hazard Tom Swift or Danny Dunn (if your memory goes back that far) put through the Williams Street thunderblender. Now you’ve got a fair idea of what Adult Swim’s newest series is like. Mummy dearest Brock fights […]

"Cosplay Complex": An Otaku's Dream Come True

Ask any anime fan what the best part about going to a convention is, and they’ll tell you it’s not seeing anime on a big projection screen. Or the shock when a certain company licenses a popular show to dub. It’s not even watching a huge anime movie before everyone else can. Nope, they’ll tell […]
