PS: And it seems it seems I'll have to take a break from posting any long articles, specifically from my monthly "Seiyuu Comparison" section. I just can't find the time to sit down and write a good long article like before these days without worrying about deadlines. Sorry to all regular readers who may have looked forward to this column (does not apply to event coverages. will try my best to cover those).

From the mahou-shoujo-massacre anime, Puella Magi Madoka Magica, the Good Smile Cafe has turned into a portal to a magical dimension, where tons of decorations and merchandises plastered and littered everywhere within the cafe, from tables to shelves and even the toilet.
Come immerse yourself into the world of magic here in Chiba, where you might just dine with Kyuubee!
Who wouldn't want to dine with the great Incubator?!
Japan National Tourism Organization has turned towards the brave global demography, hopefully willing to endure the rumours of nationwide radiation that has driven away most of Japan's visitors and anything that stands in their way; the otaku population.

Guess the rumors weren't joking when they kept mentioning a possible 3rd season.
Another season of appeasing the gods and epic facepalms from our one and only-main-human-character-whose-only-damned-name-is-a-nickname, Kyon.
God, is so in his heaven about now...

Star ★ Draft, a variety show currently airing on Nippon Television, has welcomed a few "otakus" to their show and publicly shames them.
Now, its been awhile since I've watched any reality, talent or variety shows currently airing on Japanese cable (except Downtown for a good laugh), but I had no idea public bashing had become this open for slangs and slurs to even be uttered by the guest commentators (Okay, so it was pretty rampant to begin with but is that how you treat guests?).
For a good part of the show, bashing from the critics was disgustingly brutal and heavy. Many (rude) comeback remarks were exchanged mostly from the panel of 7 seated guests and it was clearly a "talk-down" session meant to silenced the "lambs". You can see the hostility for yourselves at the video link below.
The group were asked from things that they hold dear, such as K-ON!, Madoka and Toyosaki Aki being mentioned, to "Akiba News" which criticized their "Akiba" fashion from Tote Bags to merchandises.
At one point, one of the guest commentators asked to view the figure and started kissing it before shoving a figure of Mio into his mouth, not before rinsing his mouth with a Ritsu plushie doll and PSP.
As one 2channer said, "Welcome to public execution..."
