43-Year-Old Thief Successfully Stole Over 100 Seifuku

A dastardly criminal’s thieving spree has been ended prematurely by Osaka police as the 43-year-old man has “retired” from the profession with a record of 100+ seifuku, sure to simultaneously astound and appall. The middle-aged part-time employee was apprehended by police for allegedly stealing a girl’s school uniform last month, with his filching apparently being […]

‘Lupin’ Trailer: The Gentleman Thief Gets His Own Live-Action Netflix Series

In 1905, French writer Maurice Leblanc created a character named Arsène Lupin, who embodies one of my favorite archetypes in all of storytelling: the gentleman thief. Since his creation, the suave, crafty Lupin has appeared in several short stories, books, comics, and movies over the years, and even inspired a grandson character, Lupin III, who was the subject of acclaimed animation director Hayao Miyazaki’s feature directorial debut and, more recently, a new CG animated film called Lupin III T...

Cherry Magic! Thirty Years of Virginity Can Make You a Wizard?! Volume 1

I was tickled by the concept of Cherry Magic! Thirty Years of Virginity Can Make You a Wizard?! when a fellow comic club member (hi, Rachel!) told us about it. Basically, office worker Adachi turns 30 and is still a virgin, so he gains the magic ability to read the mind of someone when he touches them. When he accidentally touches a handsome, popular coworker, he discovers that this coworker, Kurosawa, has a crush on him! So Kurosawa is trying [...]

Bakemonogatari Manga Takes Passion for Breasts to a New Level

More extended dialogue and unnerving visuals are present in the Bakemonogatari manga as hero Koyomi talks further with vampiress Kissshot Acerola Orion Heart Under Blade, with the situation of Hanekawa’s breast groping leading into another breast-based moment, though one that readers were perhaps not expecting. The 114th chapter again pulls no punches when it comes […]

John Mulaney Says He Was Investigated by the Secret Service After An ‘SNL’ Joke

John Mulaney may look like a very tired tall child, but that didn’t stop the Secret Service from taking his jokes a little too seriously when the comedian appeared on Saturday Night Live back in February. During his monologue, a harmless joke about leap years and Julius Caesar put the comedian on the radar of the Secret Service, who interpreted his joke as a potential death threat against Donald Trump. It makes the latest backlash against the comedian — also relating to a poorly made SNL joke —...

Watch: Peter Jackson Talks About Remastering ‘The Hobbit’ Trilogy and the ‘Lord of the Rings’ Trilogy in 4K

The Lord of the Rings trilogy and The Hobbit trilogy are both now available on 4K for the first time ever, which means that director Peter Jackson had to go back and go through all six films to get them up to snuff. In a new featurette, Jackson explains that the biggest problem he had was inconsistency – the six films are meant to tell one huge, linear story, but since they were all shot at different times on different kinds of cameras, they all looked different. But that’s changed. Lord of...

‘Black Mirror’ Creator Charlie Brooker’s Mysterious 2020 Project Gets a Mysterious Teaser

This year has been such a shit-show that it makes episodes of Black Mirror look almost quaint by comparison. Black Mirror creator Charlie Brooker is aware of that, so rather than bring us a new season of Black Mirror he’s unleashing a new, mysterious mockumentary about the hell year that was 2020. Brooker just dropped a new teaser for the project, which may or may not be called Death to 2020. pic.twitter.com/AfQ5yMKW8l — Charlie Brooker (@charltonbrooker) December 3, 2020 At the end of N...

‘Red Dot’ Trailer: An Unseen Killer Targets a Couple in the Wilderness

Picture this: you and your significant other are out in the wilderness somewhere. Secluded. No people, or man-made structures, for miles and miles – just open wilderness as far as the eye can see. And then suddenly, the red dot from a weapon’s laser aim appears directly on you. You can’t see the shooter, but you know they’re out there – somewhere – and they’ve got you in their sights. It’s a pretty neat idea, and it’s also the premise of Red Dot, a new Swedish movie coming to Netflix. Watch the...

‘Earth at Night in Color’ Exclusive Clip: “Refuge in the Darkness” Shows Brown Bears After Dark

Earth at Night in Color is not your average nature docuseries. The new Apple TV+ show uses special cameras and a unique editing process to capture crystal-clear footage of animals at night. Normally when shows want to do this sort of thing they rely on night vision, but the Earth at Night in Color process has bright, clear footage that would be pitch-black in other circumstances. Below, check out an Earth at Night in Color exclusive clip featuring some brown bears waking up for the evening. ...
