Yes, it seems McDonalds in China is celebrating the Angry Birds' movie release with a bunch of food inspired off the movie, like the 'Naughty Green Pork Burger' above which includes a pork patty, egg, lettuce, mysterious jalapeno-esque sauce, and those iconic green buns.

China's also gearing up for the Angry Red Burgers, which naturally feature flaming red buns.

Some people think this elderly woman simply mistook Galen for Guan Yu, but are we really sure? The statue happened to be located outside of an internet cafe, so it stands to reason that this lady might actually just have wanted to make her incense offerings while kneeling before Galen.

As part of a recent ban on media, China has banned a total of 38 anime and manga titles for the inclusion of "scenes of violence, pornography, terrorism, and crimes against public morality."  Wondering what those titles are?   

Terror in Resonance
Highschool of the Dead
Ergo Proxy
The Skull Man
Inferno Cop
Afro Samurai
Tokyo Ghoul √A
Sword Art Online II
Tokyo ESP
Tokyo Ravens
Devil May Cry
RIN – Daughters of Mnemosyne
The Testament of Sister New Devil
Attack on Titan
Corpse Party
Strike the Blood
Death Note
Deadman Wonderland
Date A Live II
Devilman Lady
School Days
Those Who Hunt Elves
Elfen Lied
High School DxD
Samurai Bride
So, I Can’t Play H!
Girls Bravo: Second Season
Aesthetica of a Rogue Hero
Sakura Diaries
Black Butler
Dance in the Vampire Bund

Anime fans in China can't watch the Gun Gale Online series of SAO, but apparently they can see the terrible ALfheim second arc of the first series that I personally wish I could unsee.  

The ban will add more titles as necessary, so if you're in China you should probably get started on some of the naughtier shows now.  What other anime do you think will be banned in the future?  My money's on Kill La Kill, personally.

Jackie Chan was quoted by the THR while giving a talk at the Shanghai Movie Festival saying, “Warcraft made 600 million RMB [$91 million] in two days—this has scared the Americans,” said Chan. “If we can make a film that earns 10 billion [$1.5 billion], then people from all over the world who study film will learn Chinese, instead of us learning English.”

Chan continued on and told the primarily Chinese crowd that “it is you, not us, who makes China powerful.” Continuing, he added, “So, thank you all—we hope the Chinese film industry gets even more powerful.”
