Dear Japan, Thank You For Breast Grenades

Angry Zen Minion David Sweeten sent along this trailer for Samurai Princess. Just when I think I’ve seen it all, Japan comes along and blows my mind. Rocked powered roundhouse kick! Scissor feet! Breato grenades! I don’t even know what the fuck is going on here, but I believe this movie must be seen right the hell now!

This amazing bit of news comes from AZM Ally Mike Dent who writes in with word that the President of Sunrise confirmed that there will indeed be a Gundam Unicorn movie in 2010! WIN! This is the video of the announcement (I think) at a press event where Tomino Yoshiyuki was present. Hells yes! About damn time Gundam came back to the Universal Century. Sorry all you alternate century universe parallel world fans, but we here at AZM are gigantic nerds–er UC fans. We like our Char in original recipe flavor. We also like our Char clone to be an actual Char clone.

Blood the Last Vamp Government Agent?

AZM Ally Charles Gulotta sent along the latest trailer for Blood: The Last Vampire which gives us a little more insight than the first teaser trailer. Saya apparently works for a government agency tasks with killing demons. Oh government, why do you always have a group of secret badasses working for you.

Looks pretty fun. Who can really argue with school girls, swords, vampires, and demons? I especially like the salary man running at Saya in the subway. Like I always say, beware the stressed out Japanese salary man. You never know when he’ll run at you with a freaking spear!



I know what you’re thinking. What could possibly be better than Japanese Spider-Man Thursday? SUPAH AHT FAITO of course!

This Saturday, we will be taking the stage at Akiba Fest at the Samuel Riggs IV Alumni Center at my alma matter the University of Maryland in College Park, MD. We’ll be drawing in the lobby when the doors open at 5pm and we’ll take the stage at 7:35pm so come by and say hey. MTV True Lives will be filming so our mission, if we choose to accept it, is to find the kid and impress him or her greatly with out mad skills! Also appearing on the bill are two singers from Project.R who sang one of the songs on Engine Sentai Go-Onger and Shing02 who rapped the intro to Samurai Champloo. Looks like it’s going to be an awesome night of J-jams.

So if your Saturday night is looking deadly boring, come on down to College Park and be part of the insanity! And if you’re hungry, I know a great place for wings.

Japanese Spider-Man Episodes 3 and 4

“Yeah yeah yay, WOW!”

Still freaking awesome! And don’t forget, HLJ still has Leopardon in stock!

Shin Mazinger Trailer!

AZM Ally Mike Dent sent along this UH MAY ZING trailer for Shin Mazinger which premiers this Saturday in Japan! Goddamn, that looks so beautiful. I really love the retro, Go Nagai stylings. You can tell it’s modern animation, but the old school designs give it such an awesome feel. Giant robots don’t tend to do well over here, but I’m hoping someone grabs a license for this. ROCKETO PUUUUUUUNCH!!!!

Kabuto-O Beetle Clocks Up The Squared Circle

AZM Ally Cow Hat Ninja discovered this UH MAY ZING trailer for Kabuto-O Beetle, totally unrelated to Kamen Rider Kabuto. It’s a few years old so it’s doubtful anyone licensed or released it officially. Boo! Apparently, it’s based on a Go Nagai manga so you know it’s full of large doses of the awesome! The creator of Mazinger Z writing a wrestling manga? HOW COULD IT NOT BE EPICALLY UH MAY ZING!
