Nogizaka46-MadokaMovie-TVAd-11

AKB48 “rival” idol group Nogizaka46 have been aggravating Madoka fans with their live action TV advertisement for the recent BD/DVD release of Madoka Magica Rebellion – rapidly accruing massive opprobrium for its attempt to pass off “21-year-old hags” as “shoujo” and the low level of their costumery.

ImoutoOkashii-Episode10-Omake-6

The plot thickens as incestuous anime Imouto Okashii airs its 10th episode, with main heroine Mitsuki receiving a “tiny” new upgrade, unfortunately butchered by the all too familiar novelty censors to a devastating degree – perhaps establishing further proof that some anime should be watched solely via its (hopefully) uncensored BDs.

Idolmaster Girls Adorn PS3 Controllers

Idolmaster-GameControllers-4

By way of promotion of the upcoming advent of Idolmaster: One for All, Namco Bandai and Hori have made a trio of suitably idolatrous PS3 controllers available, each adorned with the silhouette of one of Idolmaster’s cute signature idols – albeit with more in the way of tacky plaid than pretty art, though they at least provide a relief from the usual onslaught of DLC.
