It's Finally Friday: The Horror of Junji Ito

Well, it's that time of the year again; time to dress up in costumes, go trick-or-treating, and watch and read all sorts of scary stories. And while one might think to watch some classic horror movies this Halloween, there's also plenty of manga that's guaranteed to scare, and nowhere is that more obvious than the work of Junji Ito. So for this Halloween, I've decided to demonstrate some of his more well-known works; get ready for some seriously disturbing nightmare fuel.

Anime Review: Bleach

Hi everyone, once again it is my turn to review an anime and since toonami is airing the final episode of the English dub this weekend I figured the time was right to review Bleach.  The series is long (over 300 episodes) and as a result this review will cover the earlier part of the series.  The major premise of Bleach is the adventures of high school student Ichigo Kurosaki after he becomes a Shinigami and begins defending his friends from evil ghosts.

The Weekly W: Why do we watch anime?

Why do we watch anime?  Is it for the adventure? For the romance? For the laughter? For the tragedy?  There are so many reasons to watch anime, and they vary day to day and from person to person.
