Sweet Pool

Sweet Pool is a  yaoi video game from Nitro Chiral, the same company behind Lamento and Togainu no Chi.  Like those games, the subject matter is pretty dark.  This game, in particular, features some disturbing content involving blood mixed in with the hot guys and sex. 

Another thing that sets this game apart is the art style.  Some of the art is a bit sketchier than a lot of the art you see for games like this.

Static and Black Lightning

The Brave and The Bold is a series from DC Comics where different heroes team up for a single issue story.  A recent issue teamed Static (Teen Titans) with Black Lightning (JLA).  Their pairing makes sense given their seemingly similar powers. An issue of JLA written by Static co-creator Dwayne McDuffie even had someone ask Black Lightning if he was Static's dad. The pencils for this issue are by Howard Porter.

Iron Man and Wolverine: Anime-Style

Two of the more interesting things to come out of Comic-con are the teasers for Marvel and Madhouse's upcoming anime versions of Iron Man and Wolverine.

While the Iron Man one doesn't give you any clue what Tony Stark looks like under the armor, the Wolverine one is a dramatic change.  It's a bit different even from the American-manga version.  I like the design, but at the same time it seems sort of "generic old-school shounen anime" to me.

Anyway, enjoy the videos below:

Another Look At Jyu-Oh-Sei

Jyu-Oh-Sei was featured here way back in March 2008.  Not too long ago, I decided to buy the show on DVD and watch it in its entirety.  I enjoyed the show quite a bit with the nice combination of hot guys and a good story (although the last two episodes are a bit off). 

As such, I decided to make some screencaps of the series.  Most of the caps are from the latter half of the series (where the main character has gotten a bit older).  There are some spoilers in these caps, so be warned.

This first set of caps is all about context.  Let your mind wander as to what exactly is happening (or is going to happen) in these pics.


Someone who worked on the show must have liked the butts of the characters Zagi and Third.  Why?  Well, how do explain a short sequence in an episode where all we see is this shot of Zagi walking...

...or these two panning shots of Third that I stitched together?

Finally, here are some shots from the show's opening:

Well, I hope you enjoyed this look at Jyu-Oh-Sei.  All of the screencaps I made, including ones I didn't post, will be featured in a bonus archive soon.

Tsubasa Reservoir Chronicle in Black and White

Today's post is another installment in the unofficial " Black and White" series which has previously featured Saiyuki and Wolverine.  This time around, CLAMP's Tsubasa Reservoir Chronicle is the subject.  Like the other " Black and White" posts, all the pics are monochrome.
