The New Transformers Is Off To A Shaky Start, And That's Just Prime

An untested leader, a gung-ho cadet, a rebellious youth and a hulking brute stranded on Earth with a hundred or so of the galaxy's toughest Decepticons. I haven't been this excited about a new Transformers animated series since Beast Wars. » 3/21/15 12:50pm 3/21/15 12:50pm

The Sonic Boom Cartoon Is Off To A Fine Start

While the jury's still out on Sonic Boom: Shattered Crystal for the 3DS and Rise of Lyric for the Wii U, the first couple of episodes for the animated series aired on Cartoon Network over the weekend, and it's not half bad. » 11/10/14 1:30pm 11/10/14 1:30pm

In This Corporate Dystopia, The Worst Crime You Can Commit Is Breathing

The animated short film Last Breath plays like a fever dream—or really, more like a nightmare. In a city run by a corporate mascot, one man realizes that he has become a social outcast because he's one of the few humans who still breathes. » 6/06/14 4:20am 6/06/14 4:20am

If Sailor Moon Had Been A Western Cartoon

DeviantART artist Ann Marcellino's take on the Sailor Soldiers is really unique; they rather look like characters from a modern-day western cartoon than from an anime. » 5/29/14 10:40am 5/29/14 10:40am

Hong Kong's Government Explains Money Troubles... With Cartoons

In Hong Kong, government-provided public services are considered pretty good. Supposedly, the social welfare net is also pretty good. Technically being part of China but with a passport that is accepted by many western countries, Hong Kong is overall a pretty good place to live. » 12/30/13 5:00am 12/30/13 5:00am

Modern animation in China has largely been dominated by foreign imports. Anime like Naruto, Bleach, and One Piece are extremely popular. However, China's own animation industry is slowly getting better; here is a list of some of their best home-grown cartoons. » 12/16/13 7:00am 12/16/13 7:00am

This Hilarious Cartoon Is Like Adventure Time, But Way Cuter

Bee and Puppycat returns, this time continuing where the last amazing episode—which you should definitely watch—left off. It seems that there's way more to Puppycat than meets the eye, and I'm not just talking about how it might be either a cat or dog (or both?) » 8/06/13 6:45pm 8/06/13 6:45pm

After LucasArts' brilliant 1993 game Day of the Tentacle, cartoon-style point-and-click adventure games slowly became their own sub-genre. Although the genre has had its ups and downs, these games are still around: Think Gemini Rue or the new Broken Sword. » 3/21/13 9:00pm 3/21/13 9:00pm

Kingdom Hearts Needs More Scrooge McDuck

Yesterday saw the release of Kingdom Hearts 1.5 HD Remix in Japan. And as I plunged into the graphically remastered Disney/Square-Enix crossover, I couldn't help but think about the one thing the franchise needs more than anything else: more Scrooge McDuck. » 3/15/13 4:00am 3/15/13 4:00am

Don't Ever Leave Me Again, Mini Ninjas

I contend that one of Square Enix's finest acquisitions in 2009's take-over of Eidos Interactive was the six miniature trained killers of 2009's action-adventure, Mini Ninjas. Soon they will be an animated series, but for now they're an endless runner, and I've missed them so much. » 3/06/13 11:30am 3/06/13 11:30am

The Angry Birds Cartoon is Launching Next Month. Take Cover.

You know what the most recognizable characters in mobile gaming are lacking? Character. Debuting March 16 and 17, Rovio's Angry Birds Toons series will define Red, Black, Blue, White, Yellow and the pigs by their story arcs instead of their parabolic arcs. Yeah, I've been waiting to use that forever. » 2/26/13 10:05am 2/26/13 10:05am
