Issued to Japanese police, the Doryu 2-16 Pistol Camera features a grip with trigger that gives new meaning to shooting pictures; it’s a 16 mm movie camera with Nikkor 25mm lens.
Translation Party shows the meaning behind lost in the translation: it repeatedly takes a phrase between Japanese and English, with often unintentionally humorous results. Thanks, Scott!
Munching on brains is hard work: employees at Japan’s Ultimate Horror Maze are seen above in a Zombie Boot Camp, after reports that they were no longer scary enough.
Fresh from Full Metal Alchemist: Brotherhood, these Play Arts figures give Ed, Al and Mustang a distinctly more grown-up look than we’re used to, but it works: they come out 10/09.
Evangelion 1.0 finally makes it to the US July 17th at 77 theaters; it’s part of a four-movie arc that rebuilds the original anime with notably improved animation and faster-pacing.
Insanely complex but utterly inspirational as well, Japanese band Sour creates an amazing webcam-based music video for “Hibi no Neiro” using their fans from around the world.
NSFW: Like Austin Powers meets Ghost in the Shell meets every B-horror flick ever created, Robo-Geisha is so over-the-top in terms of ways to die it’s almost ensured a cult following.
Folded over the course of four years, Wataru Itou’s A Castle On The Ocean is a papercraft spectacle; it’s on display at Uminohotaru, a service area which is itself situated on the ocean.
First made in 1976, Japanese lighter manufacturer Sarome’s SD1 is their oldest model in production; each is assembled by hand with a solid brass case and traditional flint design.
It’s no surprise, but Japan’s getting taken over by 59-foot tall giant robots: first, the 1:1 Gundam, and now a similarly-sized Tetsujin which will be permanent installed in Kobe this October.
Andrew Bell’s Never Look Back is well-known to vector artists and has been recreated as a set of an O-No Sushi urban vinyl figures; it’ll come in a limited edition blue and standard red.
Too bad it’s Japan-only, because we’d love to get our hands on this Lap Desk; it includes a built-in USB-powered laptop cooler, mousepad, cupholder and folds flat for storage.
We’re unfamiliar with Kakugo no Susume (one of anime/manga’s most violent series), but this Kyoukagaikokaku Zero figure is pure badass; it’s a poseable figure with die-cast parts.
The 59-foot tall, life-sized Gundam on Tokyo’s Odaiba Island we previewed earlier is finished; it looks even better in real life, as evidenced by these stunning night shots by Pink Tentacle.
It resembles Disney’s Cars, but ZMP Inc’s RoboCar is designed (and priced) for academic use; it’s a Linux-powered robotics platform with stereo CCD cameras and image recognition.
From Devil May Cry’s creator, this estrogen-laden trailer for Bayonetta lays the action on thick (and fast) with top-notch visuals, wicked boss battles and a bevy of Sarah Palin lookalikes.
White Knight Chronicles jumps the gun with this E3 trailer; it’s light on actual gameplay and mixes old and new cinematics, but we’re happy that it’ll be the first true online RPG for the PS3.
Developed as a mobile crane, Robotopusu (“Robotops”) looks ready to rend humans limb from limb with its two giant claw arms and four legs; each claw and grasp up to 220lbs.
From folks who brought us Ico and Shadow of the Colossus, this internal trailer for Project Trico shows promise with faint echoes of The Neverending Story’s Falkor and Atreyu.
We like this new trailer for Resonance of Fate (aka End of Eternity), but it seems to be a bit too American: the last half is filled with fast action sequences and the heavy metal-ish music.
This Forgotten Secret trailer for White Knight Chronicles starts off with butterflies and ballroom dancing; in other words, it’s ripe for all the slick sword-swinging mayhem afterwards.
Supreme’s MX shades put a Japanese spin on classic retro frames with an acetate-wrapped wire frame core and impact resistant, UV proof lenses; they’ll be available May 14th.
BlazBlue: Calamity Trigger Limited Edition includes special packaging, a two-disc soundtrack and video disc; most importantly, it’s a free upgrade and limited to the first run.
