  1. These Are Actual Ads For the Attack on Titan Museum Exhibit In Tokyo

    An on that day, mankind received a grim cheeseburger!

    Starting in late November, Ueno Royal Museum in Tokyo is set to host an Attack on Titan exhibit. But how do you successfully advertise for a series that's mostly about giant monsters eating people without making anyone lose their lunch? By adding some lunch, of course!

  2. Things We Saw Today: SCYTHER! (Translation: This Is The Best Lady Scyther Pokémon Cosplay Ever)

    Scyther scy!

    This Scyther outfit by Termina Cosplay might take the Pokémon cosplay cake. Seriously, how bad-ass does she look? I wouldn't even trust my Charmander against her. (via Fashionably Geek, photo by Reid Brazel)

  3. Dorkly Presents The Best Fanart From Nintendo’s New Super-Kawaii 3DS Ad

    Too much cuteness for one post.

    Nintendo released a new ad for the 3DS in Japan, and it was (of course) incredibly cute. The adorableness has inspired a wave of fanart, and the best pieces are collected over on Dorkly! Including 1920s beach dress Peach, hipster-dad Bowser, and definitely-crushin'-on-each-other Peach and Zelda.

  4. Japanese Scientists Think Climate Change Could Alter Human Male-to-Female Birth Ratio

    And just like that, Congress cares about global warming.

    Since the '70s, Japan has seen a surprising fluctuation in the gender ratio of babies born in the country; specifically, there's been an increase in deaths of male fetuses in relation to deaths of female fetuses, which leads to more female babies being born. Surely that can't have anything to do with the way the temperature has been shifting in Japan over the past 40 years. What's that you say? It might? Well, uh oh.

  5. Japanese Talking Animatronic Rocket Raccoon Will Either Bring You Joy Or Terror

    Ohhhhh... yeah?

    Guardians of the Galaxy came out in Japan this weekend, and to celebrate, they created this horrifying abomination very lifelike talking animatronic Rocket Raccoon. My Japanese is non-existent and I have no idea what the reporter is asking him, but the Japanese Rocket's voice actor actually gives BCoops a run for his money. No one show this to DARPA.

  6. Japan’s Burger King Introduces “Kuro Burger” With Black Cheese, Buns, and Sauce

    ./' I see a burger and I want it painted black ./'

    God, would you get a look at the sad state of fast food products these days, with their stupid preppy yellow cheese and their red ketchup? They're such conformists. If you consider yourself beyond all that gross consumerism, then Japan's Burger King has the perfect thing for you to rebel against those other sandwich-sheeple while still getting to actually participate in gross consumerism anyway.

  7. There Goes Our Money: Japan’s Premium Bandai Introduces New Line of Sailor Moon Lingerie & Dresses

    Cut to my wallet shouting "LOVELYYYYYYY" and then dying.

    Today I put it to my coworkers that eventually we might get very close to hitting peak Sailor Moon. We all laughed it off until sweatdrops appeared on our foreheads and we forgot what we were talking about. You know what we should have been talking about? The amazing merch coming out of Japan right now. Holy dang, guys, it's the school uniform I always wanted to wear but didn't have to because I went to public school!

  8. Japan Has a Freaking Batman, and He’s Buddies With the Police Now

    I want a Batman!

    If you need more evidence that Japan is out-innovating the U.S., look no further than the fact that they now have a freaking Batman. Get your head in the game, America! Video's of the Chiba province's "Chibatman" have been making the Internet rounds, and now he's been called in by police and gained their approval.

  9. TIL: Japan Has a Marvel-Themed Anime, Complete With Their Own Guardians of The Galaxy

    Fingers crossed for a Sailor Moon Crystal crossover.

    The Guardians are making their debut in the Japanese Marvel Disk Wars television show, and they look... pretty much exactly how you'd expect them to look.

  10. Update: Hello Kitty Isn’t a Human, Either

    I can't take much more of this.

    Yesterday the Internet (save for hardcore Sanrio fans—you'll have to forgive the rest of us) flew into an existential frenzy as it was revealed by a Hello Kitty historian in a LA Times interview that the famous Sanrio character is not to be referred to as a cat. But then... what is she?
