Any way you slice it, Samurai Champloo: The Complete Series on Blu-ray is a must-buy for anime fans; it’s a 3-disc, 26 episode set of the hip hop-meets-samurai chop series.

Shot in eye-popping 2D, Family Guy: Something Something Something Dark Side’s second trailer is filled with giant robot camels and nerf herders; it arrives 12/22/09. Thanks, Thorir!

Mamoru Oshii’s anime classic goes Blu-ray with Ghost in the Shell 2.0, which features new CG scenes and a remixed soundtrack; purists, breathe easy: the original version is also included.

George and AJ (Short Film)

George and AJ (Short Film)

If you ever wondered what happened post-Carl in Up, Pixar explains all; the short film George and AJ shows things going downhill, underground, and interplanetary. Thanks, Thorir!

NotLD: Reanimated

NotLD: Reanimated

A Romero version of Star Wars: Uncut, Night of the Living Dead: Reanimated is an ongoing collaborative project; artists reinvent scenes from the 1968 cult classic in their own style.

Dante’s Inferno Animated

Dante’s Inferno Animated

Due out in February 2010 on DVD and Blu-ray, Dante’s Inferno: The Animated Epic is gory and gorgeous; the six-part series’ directors include Ghost in the Shell and Blood veterans.

My Cars Showreel

My Cars Showreel

Innocuously named but ridiculously cool, Pantural’s My Cars Showreel is entirely CG; it features a Mustang, Camaro, an AH-64 Apache with action that would do Michael Bay proud.

Seth MacFarlane’s Secret

Seth MacFarlane’s Secret

So much for hush-hush, as Seth MacFarlane’s Secret is out: Family Guy, American Dad, and The Cleveland Show are less about equal rights and more about equal nights (on Fox).

Short: Pigeon Impossible

Short: Pigeon Impossible

We’re surprised that Pigeon Impossible isn’t a Pixar film: this high flying short was created by Lucas Martell and shows that a bird in the case is worth about a billion in the bush.

Vitruvian Voltron T-shirt

$18-$19  Buy Comment

This Vitruvian Voltron tee may seem anachronistic, but we are talking Da Vinci here: we think a flying fortress made out of robotic lions would be right up the renaissance man’s alley.

The Astronomer’s Dream

The Astronomer’s Dream

To call The Astronomer’s Dream trippy is a galactic understatement, but we’re slack-jawed over its amazing details; you can support indie director Malcolm Sutherland by buying the DVD.

Teaser 2: Despicable Me

Teaser 2: Despicable Me

Despicable Me’s second trailer reveals not one but two villains in a Spy vs. Spy-esque game of one-upmanship; Steve Carrell voices Gru while Jason Segel plays his arch nemesis, Vector.

$20  Buy Comment

Its run on Adult Swim is over, but watching it is half the battle: G.I. Joe: Resolute will be available on 11/3/09 and includes all 11 five-minutes episodes on a single DVD.

Video: Island of Horrors

Video: Island of Horrors

The Seafarers return for a Halloween visit to the Island of Horrors; it’s creepy, jarring, and a bit disjointed, but we couldn’t resist the chance to sample zombie pizzas and mummy wraps.

Dethklok x Brutal Legend

Dethklok x Brutal Legend

Best product tie-in ever: Eddie Riggs makes a cameo on Adult Swim’s Metalocalypse, moonlighting (of course) as a totally metal roadie for Dethklok — well, everyone but Murderface.

Trailer: Cup of Tears

Trailer: Cup of Tears

Sci-fi/martial arts flick The Cup Of Tears is extremely low-budget, but we couldn’t tell from this trailer: it’s a hybrid CGI/Live Action film by Gary Short that’s shot using a RED camera.

Video: Klingon Propaganda

Video: Klingon Propaganda

You’d have to be a targ to not love this Klingon Propaganda video, secretly released (aka viral) to recruit new sons of Kahless; the uniforms and D7 cruisers have a distinct ToS flavor.

Funny: Pixar Intro Parody

Funny: Pixar Intro Parody

The lamp serves time for his crimes: this Pixar Intro Parody begins with a media frenzy and jail time, but unlike most of the Hollywood elite, its story ends with electrifying results.

Astro Boy v. Peacekeeper

Astro Boy v. Peacekeeper

We enjoyed the Arena Battle clip, but this Astro Boy vs. Peacekeeper video gives us exactly what we want: a giant robot on not-so-giant robot, city-leveling slugfest (with butt guns).

Short Film: Yellow Cake

Short Film: Yellow Cake

Yellow Cake starts off innocently enough, but this mid-century style cartoon quickly morphs into something far more post-modern and disturbing with inequality, unrest and war.

Arena Clip: Astro Boy

Arena Clip: Astro Boy

This latest Arena Clip from Astro Boy isn’t quite as exciting as the Metro City clip, but it gives us a taste of robot-on-robot combat (Little Stinker FTW!); the movie hits theaters 10/23.

UAF Hockey Opening

UAF Hockey Opening

We’re used to crazy sports animations, but this Alaska Nanooks opening features the most awesome polar bear ever: it destroys a solar system, obliterates our moon and nukes Anchorage.

Superman/Batman: PE

Superman/Batman: PE
$25  Buy Comment

Now available: Superman/Batman: Public Enemies is a buddy cop film with our two favorite caped crusaders battling seemingly insurmountable odds: Lex Luthor is the US president.

Movie Trailer: Metropia

Movie Trailer: Metropia

It’s a pity it’ll only be released in Sweden, because this full trailer for Metropia has us looking over our shoulders in a good way: the animated film is a paranoiac’s worst nightmare.

Trailer 2: Fantastic Mr. Fox

Trailer 2: Fantastic Mr. Fox

Trailer #2 for Fantastic Mr. Fox rocks; its improves on the quirky humor seen in Trailer #1, but most importantly we get to hear Bill Murray and George Clooney get into a growling match.

Funny: Technology

Funny: Technology

Mark Fiore’s Technology is an animated short film that dares to ask (and rhyme) what happens when technophiles fully unplug from Twitter, Facebook and MySpace. Thanks, Chris!

Funny: Jetsons Extended

Funny: Jetsons Extended

Meet George Jetson: the overly optimistic future-utopia gets a postmodern makeover with alimony, divorce hearings and secret robot mistresses in the Jetsons Theme Song Extended.
