In case the name didn't ring a bell, Mamoru Oshii directed some of the most unforgettable anime we've available at our disposal, to date. From Patlabor to Avalon to Ghost in the Shell, Oshii's left behind a legacy not to be forgotten; and set a standard, we can only hope inspires up and coming anime directors. In a recent interview with Oricon, the 64-year-old Oshii explained a bit about why he's no longer interested in directing anime:

“Making anime is also the world of the artisan,” Oshii explained. “I’m the kind who wants do my own part 120 percent with perfection, but because if I’m allowed to do that, the whole work will head towards ruin, so I think 90 percent is okay.”

“However,” Oshii went on to say, “the number of people within this country able to work with such high precision is less than 5 percent. The younger generation is more individualistic, and while the world appreciates how good their art has become, they’re unable to do exhausting work like their older predecessors. The biggest reason why I’ve stopped making anime is because the people who I can do [anime] with are disappearing.”

Just going to take a gander here and propose these photos suggest Hugh Jackman's preppin both body and beard for what very well might be (sad face) his last role as Wolverine, and this time as Old Man Logan.

Following that savage cardboard shred show up above, let's check out what must be the most unexpected cameo amidst a play of the game...of all time...

Oh Winston, how you've changed.

Dang shame his tea-pouring skills fell short, and couldn't carry him through to victory.



Lucio's got mad crazy skillz, man...


How bout a big round of applause for Bastion, the world's greatest robot?


Oh you best cower in fear of the reaper, measly mortals.

While most people wait in eager anticipation for the Pokémon Sun and Moon release, while potentially keeping themselves busy by photoshopping the sh*t out of the world's seemingly least favorite Pokémon starter of all time, Popplio...other folks in Hong Kong marched in protest over Nintendo's plan to use the Putonghua (Mandarin Chinese) translation for 100+ Pokémon characters in the Hong Kong version of Pokémon Sun and Moon.

The core of the fans' unrest is with the Pikachu name change. Previously known as "Beikaaciu" but now set to be referred to as Pikaqiu in future games.

6,000 people banded together to sign off on a petition in March asking Nintendo to reverse the changes, but the request went on to be ignored.
