  1. Tomorrowland‘s Japanese Trailer, for the Disney Conspiracy Theorist in All of Us

    Mr. Toad's Wild Ride is totally in on this too.

    Last Monday's Tomorrowland trailer might have brought us George Clooney in a bathtub rocket, but Japan's version actually gives us a little more details on what to expect from the movie, plot-wise. (Batshit absurdity, apparently. If this trailer exhausts you, imagine what it must feel like to be an Illuminati truther all the time.)

    Harder than you might think.

    According to Porn MD, “hentai” is the fourth most searched porn term in the world - in other words, approximately everybody alive has seen anime characters grinding.

    The Cat Whiskerer. Whisperer? Whiskerer.

    I can't vouch for the Meowlingual's accuracy, but I can say that upon visiting the product's page I was also recommend Dog Wine. If that doesn't give a pet translator some credibility, I don't know what will.

  5. I, Reservations? Futuristic Japanese Hotel to Have 90% Robotic Staff

    We welcome our new concierge overlords.

    If there's anything I've learned from Fawlty Towers, it's that the human element of customer service has disastrous consequences more often than not. Given that, imminent robot takeover doesn't seem like such a bad price to pay for a timely wake-up call or impeccable check-out system, does it?

  6. Evangelion Fans In Japan Launch Crowdfunding Campaign To Send a Spear of Longinus To The Moon

    Bang, zoom!

    2015 isn't just the year that we're all supposed to get hoverboards and power laces—it also marks the beginning of the classic anime Neon Genesis Evangelion, in which a group of teenagers must save the world from the aftermath of a cataclysmic event. Thankfully our teenagers today don't actually have that problem, but that hasn't stopped fans from trying to recreate an iconic part of the show—AKA, that part where the spear of Longinus gets stuck into the Moon.
