DBZ & BLACK BUTLER POP! VINYL FIGURES COMING LATER THIS YEAR

Funko will be releasing a set of Dragon Ball Z POP! Vinyl figures featuring Super Saiyan Goku, Final Form Cell, Vegeta, Piccolo, and Final Form Freiza this August.

The Black Butler set drops in July and will be a Hot Topic exclusive until November. The set features Grell, Sebastian, Undertaker, and Ciel.

Yeah… totally getting that Vegeta. His tiny little scouter is too freaking adorable to resist.

LITTLE GOLDEN MANGA

Edgy adult manga titles Attack on Titan, Death Note, and FLCL get adorable Little Golden Book covers thanks to artist Matt Reedy. I’m eagerly awaiting the Demon Beast Invasion version which will most likely never happen.

Katsuhiro Otomo’s Akira is masterpiece - a legendary staple of pure creativity and artistic genius. Its reach has spread beyond the niche fandom of nerd culture and made its way into the mainstream. This highly influential film (and the manga that it was based on) has inspired many of the most well-known writers, directors, musicians, and artists of our time. Akira’s presence can be felt everywhere from car commercials to rap videos and even the latest blockbuster movies. While the film version was released in the late 80’s, it remains a cinematic spectacle the likes of which have never been seen even decades later.

HOLIDAY GIFTS FOR ANIME FANS
With the holiday season upon us, you’re most likely running around in a frenzy trying to figure out the perfect gifts for those in your life. While holiday presents may not be a huge deal to you, it always feels good to get the right item for those you love and care about the most. Although your high maintenance friends and family members may seem like they’d be the hardest to please, those with unique hobbies or fetishes can be even more difficult to shop for. Luckily, anime lovers aren’t that difficult, and there are a variety of cool anime gift ideas to choose from. Here are some anime holiday presents that are sure to please even the most discerning anime fan.

Anime Accessories
 Anime is known for its style, and high-quality anime will typically have characters designed by popular artists like Kantoku, Tony Taka, Itaru Hinoue, and Ume Aoki. Therefore, Anime artbooks focusing on a specific series, specific artist, or a mishmash of styles from different series and/or artists can make a great gift for the anime enthusiast in your life, particularly if he or she appreciates animation as an art. For the jewelry-loving anime chick, there is an assortment of anime characters available in a range of jeweled pieces made of actual gold, silver, and diamonds. You may have to shell out some dough to pay for these expensive accessories, but it’s worth it for the glamorous anime fan. While you may not be able to find anime-inspired jewelry items at your local jewelry store, online shops on Etsy carry a bevy of unique anime jewelry pieces.
Anime Viewings
 For anime fans who double as a gamers, a visual novel can be a great present because it combines two things they enjoy. Many romantic comedies and harem anime are based on visual novels, so they’re also good gift for anyone who likes those genres. While visual novels mostly involve reading text, there are some that contain different mini games and others that play more like RPGs. Although most people stream anime videos online, many anime lovers prefer to purchase actual videos that they can add to their collections. Investigate the videos that are on your anime fan’s wish list or visit a fan site for the latest anime videos trending with followers. If your anime addict has a wild side, a saucy anime video or naughty love doll from Adam & Eve is the perfect fun, holiday gift.
Anime Toys
 Toys are huge in anime circles, so they make the easiest presents to give to anyone into anime. Whether you choose small, cheaper items like anime eyes glasses as stocking stuffers or go opt for bigger toys like a play set, there is a plethora of anime toys to choose from. There are loads of websites hocking anime action figures and other toys and collectibles, so purchasing an anime toy may be your best (and easiest) bet. Keep in mind that you may have to do a bit of searching for those most-coveted anime toys and figurines.

THE LIVE ACTION ‘ATTACK ON TITAN’ PORN IS A THING AND THIS IS WHAT IT LOOKS LIKE
The popular manga/anime sensation gets Rule 34'd.
(WARNING: This is a very, very, VERY NSFW post. You’ve been warned.)
[[MORE]]

No way! I totally wear the same costume when I play with my action figures too!




Just like the manga and anime, plenty of nekkid dudes nommin’ on fools…


… and freaking the hell out about it.



And boobies, because porn. You can’t tell, but all of the ::ahem:: “actors” are wearing flesh-colored tape on their naughty bits. I kinda’ think the chick’s totally fell off in this pic though.


Remember back in the Street Fighter II days when you’d pause the game to see up Chun-Li’s skirt? I wonder if the photographer was thinking about that when he took this pic. That’s his life now!


God, this is weird.


She travelled door-to-door looking for a decent top and pair of pants, but she could never find any in her size. I heard she got an eating disorder after that. No wait - she was disorderly and started eating people.


This shit looks serious you guys.


Okay, now it just looks silly. I swear “The Sound of Music” popped into my head when I saw this.


I somehow keep forgetting this is a porn. It’s good to be reminded of things. I think all reminders should come in the form high-kicking crotch-shots, but that’s just me.


I truly wonder what she’s thinking right now. This picture is both tragic and poetic, yet somehow erotic, but that’s probably just ‘cause there’s boobs in it.


Oh, hey! A person wearing clothes!




The chick in the back is actually allergic to porn, that’s why she’s wearing a mask. Her doctor recommended that she change professions, but nothing can stop her from her dreams, ya’ know? I admire that.


"Snap ya’ fingers. Do ya’ step. You can do it all by yo’ self."


Man… she’s still wearing clothes. That’s pretty dumb.




Okay, Internet, these green screen shots are ripe for PhotoShopping. Do your worst.




And then they all had sex with each other right before a bunch of naked giants ate them. And then had sex with each other.


Hey it’s these guys again! That dude’s pot belly gives me confidence in my future career as a porn star.


Looks like she’s doing that cute “nyan” cat thing that chicks sometimes do in anime.


You know how in porn there’s almost always that one scene where a chick flicks her bean while watching a couple go at it? I’m pretty sure this is that scene.


Can’t tell if I’m aroused or creeped out. Moving right along…


This is what happens when you spend 3/4 your budget on action figures, tiny villages, body paint and flesh-colored tape instead of saving for special effects.


"Acting."


Little boxes on the hillside.


Little boxes made of ticky tacky.


Little boxes on the hillside, little boxes all the same.
The lawsuit-evadingly titled Charge on Themis - Titan Soldiers hits Japan on DVD and digital download on Jaunary 10, 2014. Can’t freaking wait.

Action and Horror Characters Turn Cutesy Manga

Artist Matsuda Yuusuke turned the likes of Hellraiser, Hellboy, Alien, Robocop, Predator, and Terminator, into some really cute manga characters. Funny how badass these dudes and franchises all are and how rather cute Yuusuke turned them. Comic pages from the artist can be found here and here on the Predator manga, though the dialogue is written in Japanese.

Yoshiyuki Sadamoto (Evangelion) Draws Akira
Author of the Evangelion manga series, Yoshiyuki Sadamoto, recently provided artwork for Japan’s Anime Busience magazine in celebration for Akira’s 25th anniversary. I couldn’t find any hi-res images anywhere, but it’s pretty neat to see Sadamoto draw Kaneda for the issue’s cover. Sick stuff.

First Look at Miyazaki’s New Manga

The 72-year-old legend, Hayao Miyazaki, has said to retire after his latest film, The Wind Rises, releases. Well, The Wind Rises was released in June of Japan and will release early next year in the United States, but it seems like Miyazaki is enjoying his “retirement,” by working on something new: a manga based off of samurai in the Warring States era of Japan. No word on this manga releasing soon, but it’s a promising bit of info for those wanting more from Miyazaki, post-directing!

Blurry/Leaked Images of Attack on Titan 3DS Game

In the October issue of Kodansha’s Bessatsu Shōnen Magazine, previews of screenshots from the Nintendo 3DS action game inspired by Hajime Isayama’s Attack on Titan anime/manga were revealed. And holy shit is that exciting to hear.

The game will put players in a story mode, in which Eren and other humans will battle against other Titan giants. The magazine explains that “3D Maneuver Action,” will give the game a  scenario in which players will have to rescue captured soldiers and cut off a Titans' arms before they are eaten.

Kotaku’s got some leaked images (above) that look kinda terrible for a 3DS game. We’ll see how it ends up after the game actually drops…

Inside The World Of Otaku Fashion Brand Boomslank

We’ve feature Boomslank on the site a few times over the years. They bring wildly imaginative and original anime inspired art to t-shirts, phone cases, and even art prints.

Here’s a message behind the origins of Boomslank, straight from the Boomslank team:

The word Boomslank is completely made up. The idea behind Boomslank was born out of a strong need to do what makes one happy in life. We started Boomslank because we noticed a lot of the anime tees out there relied heavily on already licensed artwork. There was nothing original out there. So we set out to create an anime brand that was strictly based on original artwork.

So far things are going great and we are really enjoying the journey of trying to follow our dream. And believe me we’ve only just begun our journey.

Definitely check out Boomslank.com to keep up with their latest releases. They even do commissions!

Attack On Titan' Nendoroid Playset

From the hugely successful anime & manga series comes this adorably creepy Attack On Titan Nendoroid playset from Good Smile Company. It comes with the Colossal Titan with two faces, a diorama display of the Shiganshina District, the Titan that ate Eren’s mom in the first episode, a 15-meter class Titan, and a secret Titan not pictured. It also includes a buttload of little villaigers & soldiers, and even a broken wall.

Releases December 2013 for 4,800 yen (about $48 U.S.).

Akira G-Shock Watches

How did I miss these?! They launched late last year and are some of the coolest G-Shocks ever. The top one has the pill logo from Kaneda’s jacket, and on the band are a bar code, and some nice Engrish. The white one has the Akira logo and some Japanese writing on the band.

Check out AwesomeCast Episode 5 where we talk about G-Shocks.
