That's where all these scans are coming from. It's a crime there's no R1 DVD of this amazing film that turns 30 this year. But you can watch the Slasher Remix for free. There's also a fan edit using the R2 DVD and the English dub out there somewhere.
All-new TERROR OF MECHAGODZILLA review by August Ragone. His new book is awesome, and he's one of the first people I ever saw posting on the Internets, like back in 199X, probably to correct someone about something that needed correcting! Anyway, he's bringing his old school tokusatsu thing to OUSA in a big way and even I have to pause here for a sec and wonder, have we lost our damn fool minds with all this rubber monster business, or have we actually never felt better?
Well, the new TERROR DVDis coming out pretty soon and...
The first-ever official OTAKU USA podcast explodes into space-time with a report on Bandai’s incredible TAMASHII NATION event in Akihabara (perhaps you've heard of it). EIC Patrick Macias and contributor Matt Alt also sing the praises of Aquarion director Shoji Kawamori and The Shazam play a cover of "Twilight" by ELO.
PQ is a free magazine for young women living in Tokyo published by the Creators Company Connection. The full name is Paradise ♥ Queen, but since you'll probably be picking up your copy in a conbini in Kabuki-cho at three in the morning, the odds are you 'aint no queen, nor anywhere near the dictionary definition of paradise. So let's just call this thing here PQ (pronounced ﾋﾟｰ♥ｷｭｰ) and try not to confuse it with that other magazine.
PQ takes its sparkly diamond design cues from Koakuma ageha and co. but is more of a reality-based and functional guide on how to survive far from home in a hostile environment. For example, this issue contains a big section on color contacts, exclusive beauty salons, "gorgeous" hairstyles, and dressing well for any occasion (see below).
After the the glossy opening section, full of deco nails and eye makeup tricks, PQ finally settles down to the nitty gritty. The "PQ Living" section shows off a variety of real estate options in Shinjuku and Takadanobaba while the "Kampai Work" ads offer employment opportunities for "Bunny Girls", "Floor Ladies", and "Companions".
PQ has it's own character mascot in the form of NyanQ (above). The mag promises you can download all sorts of cute cat-related apps at the official website, but all I found when I got there were a lot of jobs for "Models". Consequently, I am outraged, upset, and perhaps shall not PQ up the next issue!
Patrick Macias and W. David Marx chill out in Westwood during the J-WAVE USA conference at UCLA by eating "Cool Japan" for lunch. Just when the irony can't get any thicker, the ground cracks open and Paris Hilton and her gang of paparazzi emerge to rudely interrupt the recording process!
Manga: The Complete Guide author Jason Thompson follows up his epochal article for OTAKU USA by revealing his motives and methods for “Manga Tasting” and then rates our new issue! Thompson also talks about new projects on the horizon, how he manages to put together the magnificent manga reviews section for OTAKU USA magazine, and his cherished dream to one day consume "edible manga."
