This piece is by popular artist Tenmyouya Hisashi. He’s a Japanese artist known for what he calls “Neo Nihonga” art. Basically, a new version of Japanese style art which of course is called  nihonga. This particular painting sold at a Christie’s art auction in Hong Kong for about $600,000. It’s 6.5 ft. by 6.5 ft big. It’s a painting of the iconic RX-79 from Mobile Suit Gundam. It’s aiming its beam rifle while a green dragon twists around the Gundam. Something every Gundam fan would love to have.

We found this unique Venture Bro’s cosplay on Adult Swim’s Facebook! This particular costume is from the “Operation P.R.O.M.” episode of Venture Bros. These type of cosplays are special because they’re things that the average person might think is cool, but fans of the series will really appreciate!

We found some additional images on “MISS KIT QUINN“, the creator of the costumes (or atleast the Dr Girlfriend costume) via her tumblr.

This is certainly not something you can find in stores! Kudos to both cosplayers for pulling off a fantastic Venture Bros cosplay.

Namco Bandai Games began streaming the second three-minute promotional video on Tuesday for the upcoming Toriko Gourmet Monsters! Nintendo 3DS game. The video has the Toriko image song “Nakama-tachi!!” by opening theme singer Akira Kushida.


The “gourmet monster training RPG” will feature Gourmet Hunters (Bishoku-ya) and gourmet monsters fighting alongside one other in battle royale-style gameplay. Characters in the game include the “Four Heavenly King” Bishoku-ya: Toriko, Coco, Sunny, and Zebra.

The game recreates the entire world of Toriko for characters to visit, including the Gourmet Pyramid, the Baron Archipelago, the Cave of the Sandy Beach, and the Regal Plateau. In the game, players can raise more than 200 different gourmet monsters and put them in battles with other players wirelessly.

Namco Bandai Games will release this latest game based on Mitsutoshi Shimabukuro’s Toriko manga and anime on December 13.

The first release of the game will include a special AR (augmented reality) card set with an “extremely rare” Jet Black Battle Wolf card. While supplies last, people who buy this game, Naruto SD Powerful Shippuden, or One Piece Romance Dawn: Bōken no Yoake (One Piece Romance Dawn: The Dawn of Adventure) will receive an original bookmark set.
