AKA Apocalypse Meow in the US, Cat Shit One instantly reminds us of George Orwell’s dystopic Animal Farm, with cute animals armed to the teeth. It’s a 12-episode anime series.
Too bad it’s only available in Japan: Sneaker Tokyo is a treasure trove of info on the past, present and future of Tokyo sneaker culture; it’s packed with interviews, images and previews.
Stuffed to the brim with over-the-top visuals, this full 138-second trailer for Goemon is unabashedly epic; it’s directed by Kazuaki Kiriya of Casshern fame and opens this May in Japan.
Staying up for only two months starting from July at Tokyo’s Odaiba island, this life-sized Gundam will protect earthlings with its 59-foot tall height, 50 lights and movable head.
This 1:6 scale mini-Space Invaders Piggy Bank is a multifunctionalist’s dream: it not only stores your 100 yen coins, but actually lets you play Space Invaders on its LCD screen.
Elecom’s Scope Node Mouse may be slick, but is it actually functional? It promises pen-like usability by placing its 1600 dpi sensor between the index finger and the thumb.
LaMB is based on futuristic “laminated suits” that prisoners wear to convert them to slaves, and is anime TV network Animax’s first original movie; it’ll premiere March 24th in Asia.
In Yatterman, a boy builds a robot dog which shoots iron pellets out of its nose, eats bone-shaped powerups, and unleashes mini robots that dismantle enemies. Oh so Japanese, and oh-so cool.
This six-ton Tmsuk T-52 Enryu robot translates to “rescue dragon;” a pair of arms can each lift 1100 pounds, ideal for earthquake and accident rescue ops (or taking out deranged cyborgs).
Getter Robo has a special place in the pantheon of combining robot fiction, which is why fans will likely be ogling these awesome (but pricey) die-cast redesigns of Getter 1, 2 and 3.
From the same studio that brought us Full Metal Alchemist, Kurau Phantom Memory’s 24 episodes are available as a DVD box set; you’ll get both English and Japanese audio plus subtitles.
It was every 80s kid’s dream to have a home arcade; you’ll be able to do so on a small scale with the Sega Taikan Collection, which includes five mini cabinets (one is a mystery).
Katsuhiro Otomo’s legendary anime film is finally going 1080p HD: Akira is now available in Blu-ray and includes English and Japanese audio in Dolby TrueHD plus subtitles.
It’s almost too much awesomeness for our ape brains to handle, but this Cowboy Bebop and Final Fantasy: Dissidia mashup mixes the former’s catchy intro with the latter’s characters.
Resident Evil 5 producer Jun Takeuchi announces Lost Planet 2 in the rather lengthy trailer above; it’s an ice world no more with jungle climes, but we’re most excited by the co-op play.
With February 17th just around the corner, Capcom has dropped Street Fighter IV’s opening cinematic; we’re happy that it features the slick, hand-drawn style seen in earlier trailers.
Holy. Crap. With over a minute for the transformation sequence alone, Engine Oh G12 is so ridiculously over-the-top we can’t help but love it anyway.
While the cinematic and gameplay trailers were nothing short of awesome, this narrated GTTV preview for White Knight helps to fill in the blanks for the upcomingPS3 exclusive RPG.
Tokyoflash continues to ply the minimalist and esoteric oceans with the Heko Watch; three rows of LEDs (one visible, two hidden) are all that mar its otherwise smooth stainless steel face.
The calculator is the last thing we’d call stylish, but the Amadana Stick Calculator comes in at a svelte 8mm with an elongated design that (almost) makes doing our taxes appealing.
Hori’s Real Arcade Pro EX SE is as close as you’ll get to the real arcade experience; the Xbox 360 controller is made with parts from Seimetsu, who builds real arcade cabinets.
The trailer above for Star Ocean: The Last Hope is a bit like Final Fantasy meets Mass Effect; word is it’ll be more team-focused with a 4-party system when it drops 2/24 in North America.
We’re still trying to count all the turrets on this monster LEGO replica of Space Battleship Yamato; this classic anime actually bested Star Wars at the Japanese box office in 1977.
Loved the White Knight Chronicles trailer? this gameplay video has it all: a knight in shining armor, a damsel in distress and some four-legged biomechanical cannon thing from hell.
Get your growl on with Puma’s insanely detailed Japanese Monster Pack, styled off of kaiju films from the 50s-70s with wild textures that recall Godzilla, Mothra, Ghidora and more.
