THE BEST Japanese

Pie Hell

Pie Hell

Got the Monday Tuesday blues? It can’t possibly be as bad as the one that Matsumoto Hatoshi had. He was hit with pies for an entire day after losing a bet to his co-host on the show Gaki no Tsukai.

2012

2012

Genki Sudo and the well-attired members of Japan’s World Order come together for their latest music video, featuring yet another demonstration of their perfectly-synchronized dance moves.

Mika Explains Star Wars

Mika Explains Star Wars

(Spoilers) Trouble following the plot of Episode IV: A New Hope? Nope, didn’t think so. Perhaps Mika can help set the record straight with her slightly confused, yet charming explanation of Star Wars.

Outrage (Trailer)

Outrage (Trailer)

If there’s one thing you don’t ever want to do is you don’t mess with Japan’s Yakuza bosses. That’s one lesson clearly illustrated in director Takeshi Kitano’s Outrage.

Everybody, MikuMikuDance!

Everybody, MikuMikuDance!

A couple of years ago these guys took YouTube by storm with Backstreet Boys’ cheesetacular anthem. We didn’t think it could get better, but leave it to Japanese technology to improve upon the original.

Magician Walks Through Table

Magician Walks Through Table

Up until now the most amazing magic trick we had seen involving a table was the old “tablecloth yank.” This Japanese magician with a penchant for Andy Warhol has changed everything.

Symbol (Shinboru)

Symbol (Shinboru)

Did this behind-the-scenes-esque trailer for an absurdist comedy about a luchador named Escargot Man and a man in pajamas trapped in a magical room just change our Netflix queue? Yup.

Japanese Ghost Prank

Japanese Ghost Prank

When in doubt as to how to pull off a prank that scares the snot out of somebody, the good old fashioned creepy-girl-ghost-busting-through-the-wall remains a consistent crowd pleaser.

13 Assassins (Red-Band Trailer)

13 Assassins (Red-Band Trailer)

A group of unemployed samurai must help stop an evil Lord and save the country from the rule of tyranny in this martial arts epic. We didn’t know there was such a thing as unemployed samurai.

Japanese Mimes

Japanese Mimes

(NSFW: Language) Maybe it’s the fact that they’re not French, or maybe it’s the mohawks in place of facepaint – either way, Japan’s Gamarjobat guys are far more entertaining than Marcel Marceau.

X-Men Anime (Teaser)

X-Men Anime (Teaser)

Here we get a quick peek at the anime versions of Cyclops, Storm, Wolverine, and Professor X. It’s in Japanese, so we don’t know what they’re saying. Eventually coming to G4 – in English, we presume.

Darth Walks Among Us

Darth Walks Among Us

We’re really not sure what’s going on in this commercial for Japan’s Docomo mobile phone company, but it’s got Darth Vader in pretty much every scene, and that’s all that matters, right?

Helldriver

Helldriver

You’ve gotta hand it to the Japanese. They sure know how to make exploitation flicks. If you have a weak stomach, turn away. Otherwise, please enjoy the most ridiculous movie trailer you’ll see today.

Japanese Concept Cars 1957-2009

Japanese Concept Cars 1957-2009

Pink Tentacle posted a gallery of Japanese concept cars from 1957 to 2009. Despite the weird doors, we like the 50s to 80s cars the most. The 90s on the other hand were the dark ages of concept cars.

Mind Shift

Mind Shift

The Japanese musical group World Order takes to the streets of the usually busting Tokyo, and does their best to take it down a peg and move at a slower pace. Except for that crazy part at the end.

Japanese Spider-Man

Japanese Spider-Man

We all have our memories of Spider-Man, whether the old “…does whatever a spider can” theme, the Sam Raimi blockbusters or even Spider-Pig. The Japanese have their own special memories.

Japanese Synchronized Marching

Japanese Synchronized Marching

We’re not sure if this is a presentation or a competition, or if this is just training before they venture into their extremely crowded cities. The amazing happens at the 1:10 mark.

Japanese Belly Ad

Japanese Belly Ad

We have no idea what this ad is marketing, but whatever it is we want to buy one just to support whoever it is that commissioned this ad. It’s safe for work, although there’s a belly kissing scene.

Nikodama Googly Eyes

Nikodama Googly Eyes

Leave it to the Japanese to create an electronic gadget which lets you humanize any object. These Nikodama eyeballs can be stuck on the face of anything to give it more personality.

Darth Vader vs. Japanese Police

Darth Vader vs. Japanese Police

You don’t want to mess with the police in Japan – even if you are the Dark Lord of the Sith. If we knew the force could be disrupted with a left hook, we would have tried that a long time ago.

Elekit Tube Amp

Elekit Tube Amp

It’s been a while since we’ve seen anything as fracking minimal gorgeous and cool as the Elekit Tube Amp, a vacuum tube hybrid stereo amplifier designed by Koichi Futatsumata for EK Japan.

Trailer: Gatchaman

Trailer: Gatchaman

We first got a peek at Gatchaman all the way back in 2008. Now it looks like the CGI Japanimation flick is finally nearing release. In this clip, the protagonists go up against a giant mecha-bug.

Portable Watermelon Cooler

Portable Watermelon Cooler

File this one under the “one-trick-pony” category. There’s something just so wrong it’s right about this ridiculous Japanese invention that’s perfect for cooling a watermelon, or maybe a head.

Trailer: Mutant Girls Squad

Trailer: Mutant Girls Squad

NSFW. The Japanese sure know how to make movies. Take, for instance, this bit of insanity, loaded with more blood, gore, decapitation, tentacles and boob-monsters than God of War III.

Gundam In Shizuoka

Gundam In Shizuoka

Don’t worry if you missed the life-size Gundam statue in Tokyo. It’s now in Shizuoka; you have until March 2011 to kiss, hug and attempt to take home this epic statue and his beam saber.
