Fried Chicken Will Make You Strong

Written by AnaKhouri on . Posted in Food, Odds & Ends, WTF

We all know the Japanese love some fried chicken. I’m sure everyone reading this has seen pictures of Japanese KFCs, complete with statues of Colonel Sanders dressed up in charming outfits. It seems that even anime characters have come to love all those secret herbs and spices too, since Dragonball Z‘s Goku is now pitching […]


Masaki Kobayashi’s Harakiri

Written by Musashi on . Posted in Moving Pictures, Video

Masaki Kobayashi‘s Harakiri is my favorite chambara of all time. I don’t say that lightly. In my estimation it ranks above Seven Samurai, Yojimbo, Lone Wolf and Cub, and just about any other samurai film you’re likely to have seen or heard of. I don’t mean that as a slight on those films – rather, […]


Want Mech Get Mech

Gundam Wing is NOT my favorite Gundam show but the Epyon is my favorite Gundam for two simple reasons: It has a fucking whip, and… its face looks like an Akira Toriyama character. Do you want your own giant robot? Of course you do; who doesn’t? Well, if you have a mere $1.3 million gathering […]

Written by AnaKhouri on . Posted in WTF

OhmiGod OhmiGod OhmiGod. I want to fly somewhere RIGHT THE FUCK NOW. What could be better than resting one’s head against a pillow printed with Hello Kitty’s face? Darling Japanese flight attendants (that’s what we call them now, right?) in pink Hello Kitty aprons and airline food that actually looks good, if you can bring […]


Teh Cute it Burns

Written by AnaKhouri on . Posted in Toys & Gadgets

Holy shit you guys. If I had a bank this damn adorable, I might actually save some money instead of spending it all on awesome 24-hour t-shirts from the Internet. Teh Cute It Burns! The ‘white’ cat seems to be a calico, while the ‘brown’ one looks like an orange tabby. They need to refine […]


Two Stories for the Price of One

Written by AnaKhouri on . Posted in WTF

Story the first: Japanese robot cell phone pillows. So you stick your cell phone in this pillow thing (I’m not sure how one is meant to dial through a pillow) so you can hug it in lieu of the person you’re talking to. Which is weird if you’re just called tour dentist’s office for an […]
