Episode 6 Of It’s Japan, Man! Goes Live

This update is REALLY late so apologies but we’ve been busy beavers working in the background on secret projects! But here is our labour love, episode 6 of the show that takes a look at the otaku lifestyle in Australia. The show that we call It’s Japan, Man!

Japandaman Dec13 - 015

And also of particular note is that this episode marks the end of season 1 which has been an absolute joy to make and has taught us all a lot about what goes into making and producing your own show. We’re all taking a well earned break before we start season 2 which will be bigger and better so stay tuned for news on that. And a massive kawaii, otaku thank you to all our supporters for all your feedback, it’s been great to hear and read.

What Japandaman & Crew Want To Play @TGS

So TGS is literally less than 24 hours away, so with that in mind I thought I’d compile a small list of what the Japandaman crew are looking forward to playing and checking out.

So for me, Japandaman/Cristian, I can’t wait to get into the MGS Rising: Revengeance demo, Gyakuten Saiban 5, Monster Hunter, anything Biozhazard related, the Dragon Quest Wii U presentation, Yakuza 5 and Dead or Alive 5.

Japandawoman/Carol will be keen to see what fashions the booth girls bring to the yard at TGS so she’ll be monitoring that front.

Senior Art Editor Stephanie can’t wait to get into Gyakuten Saiban 5 (Ace Attorney), Final Fantasy xiv: A Realm Reborn (PS3 version), “It’ll be interesting to see how the reboot plays on a console, especially as I’ve never touched an MMO in my life! Naoki Yoshida has been putting heart and soul into this game and so I’ll have faith!”

Monster Hunter 4, “Although we won’t be having epic water battles any longer, I’m excited by the varied terrain height aspect they’re adding to the game and I’m loving the nomadic theme!”

And as for Rob, Japandaman’s newest photographer: Resident Evil 6 (Biohazard) “Because I’ve been a fan of the series since the very first game!”

Gyakuten Saiban 5, “Also because of Phoenix’s return!”

Final Fantasy XIV (RR), “I like the direction they’re taking the game in, bringing back some classic Final Fantasy monsters, locations and Job classes!”

So there you have it, our highlights and what we’re really interested in checking out. Will these games live up to expectations? Only time will tell with TGS ’12 only about 15 hours away!
