Today is Friday the 13th.
This week, I've posted something quite relevant. The video posted above is a ROM hack of the "Friday the 13th" video game for the Nintendo Entertainment System. But, rather than having Jason as the villain, this hack stars someone far more sinister.
Special thanks goes to Pope Hentai for authoring the hack and to Badderhacks.net for hosting it.
It may be Friday the 13th, but try to have a good night. :)

Recently, the United States Armed Forces in Japan posted a cute manga highlighting 50 years of the American-Japanese post-war alliance. Titled "Watashi-tachi no Dōmei", or "Our Alliance", it shows cute representations of the USA (named Usa-kun) and Japan (named Arai Anzu) living together as friends and partners and teaches readers what the alliance stands for. You can read the first chapter for free on their website here. More chapters will be posted in the future.
For a propaganda piece, it's quite cute. But, it's obvious that the USFJ omit the negative press concerning American G.I. presence in Japan, such as mass protests by the Japanese about US military bases in Okinawa and a number of schoolgirl rapes being committed by servicemen.
