What happens when you make an otaku mad?
So apparently the guy or whoever, got mad at someone for saying something bad at him. And then he proceed on saying how he’s better in Japanese because he reached Level 3 and has been getting high test scores..
The best part is that he used a mix of Japanese and English that made it look so incomprehensible probably even to someone who knows the language.
Nevertheless it was gold. And since I understand it by piecing everything together, then perhaps my Japanese has already improved a bit. :)
And I just have to put Taiga as the featured image for reasons I don’t know.
Attack on Avengers, the collaboration manga between Marvel and Hajime Isayama’s Attack on Titan has finally been released on Brutus Magazine in Japan. The manga ran in both English and Japanese (Yay!)
Due to some restrictions, please check them out here:
The Titans came out of nowhere and attacked New York. That’s it.
My Short Impressions
Got to see them all? It was not, should I say, really that groundbreaking. The Marvel heroes, with the superpowers they have, can the Titans really posed a threat? I was expecting that the Titans will have some more destructive power since this is an alternate universe after all. Also I would have lot it to be at least longer, like 50 pages or even 25 pages, which is probably enough for a one-shot manga. Instead we only got 8 pages of Spiderman with no major plot other than the titans attacking New York.
What do you think of Attack on Avengers? Please let me know through the comments below!
Unlimited Battle is an action game where players assemble teams of four characters and pull back on them to propel them like a slingshot across the screen to attack, similar to other recent Japanese mobile games such as Monster Strike. A multiplayer coop mode is also present in the game, letting up to four players fight together.
Also according to Gematsu, characters from the second game are also featured prominently though their roles are yet to be confirmed. As a free-to-play game, the game is free with optional in-game purchases.
Danganronpa: Unlimited Battle will be released in January 2015. Spike Chunsoft is developing the game.
By now, we probably already know that Yokai Watch is going to sell well, so let’s look at the other games.
The PS4 is rather represented in this week’s charts because of GTA V, which is being published by Take 2. Last week’s no. 1 Super Smash Bros for Wii U slips to number 4, while last week’s surprise hit Derby Stallion Gold also slips to 11, BUT still in the charts. :)
Also, the PS4 sees some increase in sales. Both Siliconera and Gematsu is saying this is because of the Dragon Quest-themed PS4 that was released.

Apparently, Japan loves Naruto. The evidence?
Movie ticket sales!
Naruto: The Last Movie has recently passed the 1 billion yen mark at the Japanese box office, and it did it for only 9 days. With this current momentum, this movie is on track to become the highest earning Naruto movie of all time.
Before the movie, the Naruto movie in 2012, called The Road to Ninja took 17 days to reach the 1 billion yen mark. The Last Movie is expected to earn at least 2 billion in its entire theatrical run. Some people say this is because of Hinata becoming an important part in the story. At least that’s what I’m reading on Facebook and on Crunchy Roll.
Naruto: The Last Movie is also out in the Philippines this week, and on January 2015 in Australia and New Zealand.
So here’s a question, do you have a favorite Naruto film?
As you can see, the new art is a bit more… modern? I’m actually happy they did not use the old designs but instead only used it as a reference for important details. Joe’s eyeglass, Mimi’s hair, Sora’s hair just above her forehead.. Those little things. I appreciate that the character designer Atsuya Uki did not forget to include those things.
