Remember Daichi the beat boxer? The one who was supposed to win the Beat Box Wildcard but lost to someone who wasn't supposed to win? He's back wishing everyone a Merry Christmas! I'm not going to lie though, I didn't know any of the songs until about 1:10. From what I hear, Christmas has nothing to do with Jesus in Japan (since only about 1% of the Japanese are Christians) and all about giving presents and wearing Santa hats...What a shame...

This belongs on Dont Judge My Hair.

Iron Man and Wolverine anime

So uh, Marvel is producing anime versions of Iron Man and Wolverine (link NSFW). The anime adaptations are being handled by Madhouse, the same guys who did Batman: Gotham Knight and the Animatrix as well as a bunch of other well-known Japanese series. Iron Man looks pretty badass but WTF did they do to Wolverine. Seriously, check out that extreme mullet and ultra gay outfit.

Continue for trailers of Iron Man and Wolverine

Well, it has passed but those that live in Asia were lucky enough to see the longest total solar eclipse of the 21st century. How long? 6 minutes and 39 seconds.

Above is footage of the eclipse as seen from Iwo Jima, Japan.

The next eclipse to surpass this one will occur June 13, 2132.
