GUNDAM

Reconguista in G moves the Gundam timeline beyond the war-raved Universal Century to enter Regild Century, a time of lasting peace and orbital elevators that funnel energy between Earth and the space colonies. Everything was perfect until one day a group of space pirates raid an orbital elevator and all Hell breaks loose. Click here for a ten minute sneak-peak that introduces the main cast, space cheerleaders and an important question--why are the villains the ones piloting Gundams with the classic hero color scheme?

Protect Those Who Serve You

The Testament of Sister New Devi anime

In the light novel The Testament of Sister New Devil, high school student Basara Toujou ends up with two sexy step-sisters, except it turns out that the older Maria is a succubus and the younger Mio is a devil! But the twists don't end there--Basara is supposed to end up under Mio's control, but something goes wrong and the master/servant relationship flips. Now Basara is in charge, but he still has to do ecchi things to Mio to charge up Maria's magic. With Highschool DxD script writer Takao Yoshioka on board you already know exactly what to expect from next year's anime adaptation.

Morning Zoo

Yamakan is back to save anime once again with Wake Up, Girls Zoo! a WUG spin-off title that casts the girls as animals living in a zoo in Sendai. Will their predatory alter-egos gobble up Idolm@ster fans now that Season 2 of Puchimas! has ended? We'll see when minisodes start on the official homepage this September.

The Horror in Clay

At last, I've discovered the blasphemous origin of Hatsune Miku and her mad piping voice! This recently uncovered doguu clay figure dates back to thousands of years before Christ and is proof that the Vocaloids were crafted by an ancient alien hand.

Roll Out the Moe

Wit Studio (Attack on Titan, Houzuki no Reitetsu) is getting out of the work-for-hire trap by creating their first original title, The Rolling Girls. But what's the story? Based on the passports and helmets I'm guessing it's about a rag-tag team of roller derby hopefuls travel to the USA to jam with big scary gaijin gals.

Is the Order a Neko?

"We know the rule of Sushi - fish on top of rice. On the other hand we know the rule cats eat fish. Cats sit on rice, where fish is supposed to be - why?

Contradiction and mystery in this world is always center of the cryptic questions among Japanese zen monks. And this is another Zen question -why Cats sit on rice instead of fish, not eating them? - the great zen question, which proves the magical power of Sushi Cats."

3 is a Magic Number

Move over Godfather and Star Wars, there is a new masterpiece trilogy in town. Though unlike those series Makoto Shinkai's 3rd commercial for construction company Taisei is arguably the strongest of the three. Watch as a young man takes an offer he cannot refuse to work on Vietnam's Noi Bai airport, in turn escaping the suffocating grasp of his imposing father--only to become just like him!
