New shorts from Pixar, Cars’ Tokyo Mater is a 6 min. short film that hilariously spoofs Fast & Furious: Tokyo Drift with references to Grendizer and Power Rangers.
BTW, herad that Pixar is opening a satellite studio in Vancouver which will be dedicated to producing short subjects. According to a story in The Vancouver Sun, the new studio will not work on Pixar’s feature films, but will make shorts which, general manager Amir Nasrabadi hints, could include TV series.
“First and foremost for us is to concentrate on Pixar legacy characters,” said Nasrabadi, citing Woody and Buzz Lightyear from Toy Story, and Lightning McQueen and Mater from Cars as four of its legacy characters. “We want to keep these well-known and well-liked characters alive without creating a distraction to those working on the full-length motion pictures in California.
“The types of products we produce will be niche products, such as short films, whether they are standalone or episodic in nature,” said Nasrabadi, a 12-year veteran of the digital entertainment business. “They will be helpful to all of Disney’s ancillary businesses, such as television, compilations on DVD, Internet broadcasting, as well as theatres.”

Japanese store UNIQLO is covering video games with its new line of t-shirts. Games like Arkanoid, Bomberman and Pac-Man have their own UNIQLO threads.
The latest UNIQLO TV spot makes a not so subtle reference to new line of game clothes. There’s also Ken the Eagle from Science Ninja Team Gatchaman, who’s appearing on UNIQLO anime shirts and starred in Capcom fighter Tatsunoko vs. Capcom.

IDW is rolling out brand new comics based on the upcoming CG animated Astro Boy movie, and now we've got a look at the covers of the collected versions, now available for pre-order on Amazon.com. More information at AstroBoy World
The Cover art is great which is painted by Ashley Wood, I don't expect the inside will be as good as Tezuka's original one, i expect to see a different and more western style version...

This poster is closer to my expectation on DragonBall
Fans recommended FOX people if they're still thinking about a sequel to the poor flick they released, pleass ask Funglisoft for consulting, I bet they could radically improve thier understanding of Dragonbal! Or even better: actually should outsource the production of the next DB movie to them! You see what I mean after you watched this clip featuring a fight between Gohan (Goku’s son) and the cyborg siblings:
DyDo Drinco Corp is marketing a traditional soda in collaboration with the popular “Ultraman” series. Ultraman themed soda just released in March in Japan which comes in two flavors and 12 different can designs, selling at 100 Yen each. It won't give you super power :P
I like the way they use the costume graphics, simple and fun! the website is pretty fun as well, check this out. Thanks Patrick share this with us.
