Enjoy the opening from Marvel's new series, their first foray into localizing their property for Japan called Marvel Disk War: The Avengers. I'm glad they threw Wasp in there to be the token girl character.

What do you think of Marvel/Disney's attempt to being The Avengers to a broader audience?

Pokémon GO just dropped in Japan, and it doesn't get much more creative, in terms of trying to level up quickly as possible, than this!

These mugs were only sold at the Pokémon Centers in Japan for a very limited time and in very limited quantity, in February, 2013, during the "Poké Tail" campaign.

TropicalChickens says, "I could write for hours about this trip, but here's the abridged version. This year I'm studying abroad in Seoul, South Korea. Over winter break I decided to go to Japan and embark on my very own Pokémon journey. Over the course of 7 days, I went to all 7 Pokémon Centers scattered throughout Japan. I had only the clothes on my back as well as a duffel bag to store my merchandise: just as a true Pokémon trainer would live daily. It was amazing to say the least, though exhausting (look up the distance from Seoul to Shimonoseki to Sapporo and double it). When I returned home, my girlfriend and I made Pikachu pancakes from a mould I bought and to this very day I marvel at my collection. I hope this post inspires Pokémon fans to save up some money to go on your own adventure. I only have two regrets: spending too much money and not spending enough money. Thanks for reading :)"
