From the SolarMAX ANIME Contest website:
SolarMAX is the official superhero mascot for Sun-Earth Days! Keeping an eye on space weather is quite a large job for one super hero so he needs your help. Your job is to create and submit a new and original anime style character with a visible space weather related super power. Our job is to help SolarMAX by selecting the top 5 submissions to be added to the Sun-Earth Days Superhero team!
The first winning selections will appear on the LIVE Sun-Earth Days webcast on March 22, 2013. Your character will also appear as part of a new Sun-Earth Days desktop wallpaper! See the contest directions below to get started! Good luck!
The submission period is from 2/18/13 – 3/20/13. Winning photos will be selected by a group of NASA scientists and outreach personnel.
More information is available at the website, although submission to the contest is negligible due to the fact that we’re definitely winning this shit.
This is a really awesome and creative video.. World 8 from Super Mario Bros. 3 for the original Nintendo reimagined as a 3D first person shooter!
I hope he does Mega Man next..
You know what they say – What happens in Vegas, also happens in Baltimore, MD.

Count Animeism in!
I can’t wait for March 30th! New Dragon Ball Z! What an outrageous and wonderful thing for the year 2013 to offer me. Here is some battle footage from the upcoming comping installment from Akira Toriyama! The story is considered an official release and takes place during the decade in between Majin Buu’s defeat and the arrival of Uubu at the World Tournament.
Okay, so this isn’t anime – but it IS a great idea. The best part is, it’s a package of gum.
