Hilarious Hentai Dubs
Experience the world of outrageously over-the-top adult anime dubbing!  Whether it’s bizarre lines, contrived plots, insane innuendos, or just plain bad acting, you’re sure to laugh out loud as we bask in the madness of some of the best(?) English-dubbed scenes from adult anime.

The Twisted Worlds of Junji Ito
Join us as we explore the world… or, rather, worlds of Japan’s most darkly inventive and disturbing manga author. A world where bandy-legged sideshow owners parade their cannibal children as living exhibits. A world where hideous young boys gulp down cooking oil like water. Spirals in the air, horrors in the ocean, disembodied heads floating through skies, a hole that was made for you in the side of a mountain. And above it all, a vast, living star that consumes everything it touches. This is the world of Junji Ito.

Toons That Go Bump In The Night
This panel takes a look at the darker side of anime, showcasing everything from gothic gloom to high-octane thrillers, traditional yokai to unspeakable Lovecraftian beasts. Whether you’re a seasoned horror fan who’s looking for a new nightmare fuel or just a regular otaku who’d like to try something different, there’ll be something here for you to lov.e

Waifu Wars
