Parallel Past Lives

Which do you go for--your former wife, or your former little sister? These are the problems you face as a spell-wielding Savior. Not only do you have to protect the world from monsters, you have to contend with the memories and relationships of your past life as well. Protagonist Moroha Haimura is unique in that he holds two memories, that of a holy monk and wicked sorcerer, which grant him access to both light and dark magic--and double the waifu! See his past catch up with him when the anime adaptation of light novel Seiken Tsukai no World Break starts next January.

Legal High

Pinocchio-P delivers a dose of the good stuff with his new music video, Yoiko no Kusuri (Medicine for Good Children). Like the song says, "It's legal to hate/It's legal to love" (unless you act on the urge.) If you can relate to any of these lyrics, please consult a physician immediately.

Of Poultry and Parasytes

If you think the soft anthem sounds of Japanese light rockers Bump of Chicken seem like an unlikely choice for the soundtrack of body horror classic Parasyte you aren't alone. But hey, anything beats the anime's dubstep BGM. Hear their "Parade" theme and check out a slew of new footage in these TV spots!

Black Butler hugging pillow

"I'm just one hell of a hugging pillow cover." The 9000 Yen asking price for this is a real steal when you consider what Ciel had to pay to have Sebastian at his beck and call. I just want to know who's going to clean up your mess if the butler is sleeping in with you. Ah well, figure that out after you've ordered him from the Movic site below (Japanese only--sorry!).

I Want to Hear You Apologize
