Vice TV: Halloween Should Be Cute

(According to Japan)


Halloween Should be Cute: Well according to Japan Halloween should be cute, and not scary. Japan Probe found this video that describes the differences between Halloween in Japan, and Halloween in America. Basically, it boils down to Japan liking cute, non-scary things, while America likes to freak people out with blood and guts. Also candy is a lot bigger in America (surprisingly), and not made of kawaii Pandas like it is made of in Japan. Though I’d like to also point out that America has Peanuts Halloween Special, while Japan has Hellsing and Berserk; I’m just saying it’s not all moe and kawaii in the land of the Samurai. And that's another thing, the Samurai were never "cute"!  


Bad Apple MAD: Here is a black and white MAD music video that rocks my socks off. It features characters from Touhou dancing with amazing animation, and eating apples. I’m not much of a Touhou fan, but I kind of want to be thanks to video’s like this.


Get Your Guns On: History is told a lot better when it’s in video game, and anime form. Sengoku Basara does just that, and here is a MAD video that marries the video game footage to the anime. I, for one, can’t wait for the second season.


The Police are Really Great at What They Do: The police are out in force looking for their suspect, but it is fast and angry. Yada, yada, yada, they go home and play Pokemon to unleash their pent up rage.


Half K-On 2: When I think about K-On, I naturally think about Half Life, I mean who doesn’t? The person who created it just put two and two together, and made an opening MAD of what we all were already thinking about; I means seriously, real original man. What’s next, a Lucky Star X Mass Effect? Been there, done that.


New DSiLL is Biiiiiigggg: Here is a quick look at the new Nintendo DS, which is pretty much a DS with a giant screen. Is bigger always better?


Random Video of the Week: I don’t know about you, but I think this video is a euphemism for sex in Japan.

Oh my god at that Half Life 2 video.  That has to be one of the greatest things I have ever seen.
