Week in Review: Street Fighter Films and a Brothers Conflict Cafe

Plus Madoka at the orchestra and adorable canine-wear!

Straight From the Street – Who doesn’t love Street Fighter? Crazy, sad people that you want nothing to do with, that’s who! Luckily for the rest of us, a previously hard-to-see 25th anniversary documentary about the game, its fandom, and its long-lasting legacy is now available for free, on YouTube. See you in an hour or so.

Brothers Gotta Work It Out – The Animate Cafe in Tokyo’s Ikebukkuro neighborhood has teamed up with the folks behind the popular anime Brothers Conflict to roll out a limited edition Brothers-themed menu at its restaurant (which is a must-see for anime fans visiting the area). Enjoy special dishes such as “Futo’s Harassment Salad” or “Kaname & Iori’s Crime and Punishment Mousse”. They’re food…we think.

Madoka Musical – In a few short weeks, a musical performance will be held at Tokyo’s Shibuya Public Hall, an orchestral performance of the music from the first two Puella Magi Madoka Magica films, just in time for the newest release in the franchise, Rebellion. The music will be handled by the Tokyo Chamber Orchestra (fancy) and will be sure to delight fans with over 40 selections of music from the show. See, cartoons can be cultured too!

Puella Pups – Do you love your pet dog, but still want to embarrass him or her at any opportunity? You’re in luck because now you can dress up your pooch like Charlotte or Kyubey from Madoka Magica! Warning: canine therapy sessions not included.
