Subaru is known for its cars with all-wheel drive capabilities, commitment to green initiatives, and apparently making the easiest cars for people wearing Crocs to drive. But did you know that they're also capable of outrunning humanity-devouring giants?
That's the gist of a new commercial that puts a Subaru Forester in the midst of three truly disturbing and terrifying monstrosities who may or may not be the basis of the overall look of the Attack on Titan live-action movie set for release next year. Check it out after the jump, if you can handle it.
As a kid watching Akira Toriyama's Dragon Ball Z in the mid-late 1990s, I always thought the evil Dr. Gero's androids picked some kinda wacky Western clothes to wear, but these days Android 18 looks more or less like a contemporary teen. Shave half of her head and she'd more or less fit in on any major music video shoot, which makes Bandai's June/July release of the S.H. Figuarts Android 18 action figure just so timely.
The Marvel Movie Universe is getting another entry in its straight-to-video animated film arm, this time teaming up one of its mightiest Avengers heroes, Black Widow, with The Punisher.
The new movie, titled Avengers Confidential: Black Widow and Punisher, brings the Japanese animation studio Madhouse back after its work on Iron Man: Rise of the Technovore last year. Dexter actress Jennifer Carpenter stars as Black Widow while seasoned voice actor Brian Bloom takes on the role of The Punisher. And all the rest of the Avengers are there, too. Check out the first teaser after the cut!
We've seen a lot of "chibi" Optimus Prime figures in our time, but it looks like Hong Kong toymaker Kids Logic is going to take the cake for coolest lil' Transformers Autobot leader of 2014. Due out this month, the 6" figure features a signature "super deformed" sculpt without sacrificing the kind of articulation and detail fans are used to seeing from Hasbro and Takara's much taller offerings.
Good Smile Companyand Max Factory have announced their plans to release Figma versions of Attack on Titan's most famous giant-slayers Eren, Mikasa and Levi, but what of their more sheepish friend Armin? It seems he too will join the action figure fray later this year, although fans will have to either preorder in Japan at the Winter Wonder Festival figures event on February 9 or through GSC's online shop.
After some delays that set it back for a year, a new Sailor Moon anime series will finally debut premiere this July, according to the franchise's 20th anniversary project website.
Pretty Guardian Sailor Moon from Toei animiation, the same company responsible for the mid-1990s anime series, will be available worldwide, subtitled in 10 different languages, streaming on the Niconico service. Munehisa Sakai, who has worked on the One Piece TV series and the One Piece: Strong World, Suite Precure movie is the new series' director and the theme music is by pop group Momoiro Clover Z.
If you thought that Comic Book Guy marrying a mangaka named Kumiko in this Sunday's new The Simpsons episode, "Married to the Blob" was going to be all Hulk Hands and Stan Lee and Harlan Ellison cameos, rest assured that principally western pop culture references aren't going to hog all of the airtime. In a new clip posted by Fox's Animation Domination channel, fans can watch an intoxicated Homer and the father of the bride-to-be stumble through a Studio Ghibli/Hayao Miyazaki-inspired wonderland chock full of homages to Spirited Away, My Neighbor Totoro, Castle in the Sky, Kiki's Delivery Service and more. It may be the best thing you'll see all week... with the full episode probably being the best thing you'll see on Sunday.
The government of Japan has had the goal of being "a nation built on intellectual property" for more than a decade now, and it's moving to really amp up its cultural exports in 2014. The country is spending nearly $15 million (about 15.5 billion yen) to produce programming including subtitled and dubbed anime, live-action dramas, travel programs and music shows for its new "Japan Channel."
The channel will launch in Thailand in January. In February, it's coming to Indonesia, then it will launch in Cambodia in April. The channel will eventually come to the United States, Europe and Africa, but there are no solid dates for those launches.
Yet another of Sailor Moon's Sailor Senshi is set to get immortalized action figure style in Bandai's S.H. Figuarts line. Sailor Venus is set to follow Sailors Moon, Mercury, Mars and Jupiter with a new action figure in May, complete with her white cat Artemis and her alternate masked "Sailor V" ensemble.
The strongest -- and most deadpan -- soldier from Attack on Titan will get the full range of Figma action figure articulation and accessorizing in 2014. Captain Levi of The Survey Corps Special Operations Squad will join AoT protagonists Eren Jaeger and Mikasa Ackerman sometime around their respective June and July releases to help defend humanity and its last walled stronghold against the scourge of the mysterious man-eating titans. And he'll do looking kinda like Grumpy Cat.
