China’s top state run broadcaster is being accused of plagiarising elements of Pokémon and Naruto in its latest children’s anime, not long after it was discovered to have shamelessly copied 5cm Per Second wholesale; the broadcaster obstinately denies the charges, saying there is a difference between “plagiarism” and “imitation.”

Pikachu apparently watches over the skies with this ita-radar/SAM system, in what we can only hope is an unlicensed after-market decal, rather than anything the system was sold with in an official capacity.

bonba-man.jpg

bomberman_pac.jpg

The CEO of Nintendo has recently made some interesting comments to the effect that he is glad his predecessor dared to defy the advice of his American advisors and not turn Pokémon into muscle-bound monstrosities, because “Monsters can’t be cute.”
