What’s Hot: Revenge – Creepers Tryin’ to Steal All Our Stuff (Minecraft parody of DJ Got Us Fallin’ in Love)

One more brilliant Minecraft parody, to add to your collection – taken from Usher’s hit DJ Got Us Fallin’ in Love.  Thank you, Captain Sparklez.

P.S. I use all the Minecraft parodies and songs to wake up my kids in the morning.  They make a great get-up-and-go alarm clock!  I play them on my Droid, and just leave the phone in their room  until they all get out of bed. #evilmom #mwahaha

The new Shaman King 2012: Zero Story

Note: Please check the bottom of this post for updates and links to English translations of omakes!

Hiroyuki Takei’s manga series Shaman King is being revived, starting with the November 10 Jump X release of an all new 44-page manga one shot about Yoh Asakura, called Zero Story.

While we’re waiting for the English translation of Zero Story, be sure to check out this new video on Anime News Network – it’s a song called “Osorezan Revoir”, sung by Mugumi Hayashibara (voice actress for Anna), and featuring an original illustration of Anna by Hiroyuki Takei.  And you MUST read the touching backstory on how this video came to be.

According to Anime News Network:

“The “Osōrezan Revoir” video was created to celebrate the revival of the Shaman King manga with a new 44-page story in Jump X [Kai]’s fifth volume on November 10. The manga short will depict a previously untold “zero story” about the main character Yō Asakura. According to the magazine, the manga short will be the first part in a series of short manga stories and lead up to a “Big Project” next spring.”

This one shot will, according to Shaman King Nation, tell the story of “Yoh Asakura leaving his hometown of Izumo and heading to Tokyo for the first time, as well as helping the spirit of a dead child pass on”.
