Vampire Hunter D Starts Hunting Vampires Again in a New Animated Series

Before Alucard was hunting his vampiric kin on Hellsing there was Vampire Hunter D. A cult favorite among those people who knew the word “anime” back in the ‘80s, D spawned a sequel movie titled Bloodlust in 2000, and now will star in a new animated series! But note I said “animated” and not “anime.” » 6/30/15 7:48am 6/30/15 7:48am

On Sailor Moon Crystal Near Death Experiences Will Get You What You Want

Everyone wants something on Sailor Moon Crystal. The Black Moon want power. Usagi wants to go home with her friends. Tuxedo Mask wants to protect Chibi Usa.

But it couldn’t even keep that trick up. » 4/18/15 12:30pm 4/18/15 12:30pm

Um, Why Won't Agents Of SHIELD Say The Word "Inhuman"?

Hello, my hoary hosts of Hoggoth! I don't know where Hoggoth is, or how hoary its hosts are, but I assume they must be pretty hoary, right? I mean, hoarier than, say, Albuquerque. Because otherwise we'd all be saying "hoary hosts of Albuquerque." This is the crap you think about when TVs stopped working 30 years ago. » 4/08/15 1:00pm 4/08/15 1:00pm
