"Ninja High School" Released, Rocks Faces

It's been years in the making, but Kaiju.com is proud to present the latest Studio Kaiju masterpiece; Peelander-Z's newest music video, "Ninja High School!" Sure, Kaiju has been involved in music videos in the past, but none with the pure comic-action punk metal ferocity of Peelander-Z!. This video, produced by Studio Kaiju and featuring such Big Battel all-stars as Vegetius and The Grudyin, also features a split-second glimpse of BabyBordenBot 3000, a deadly killing machine whose destructive power is as limitless as its thirst for blood. But while Kaiju fans are happier than ever to see their favorite monsters crossing over into other mediums of entertainment, some experts say the video raises just a few issues.

Despite more collaborations with Kaiju than any other band, Peelander-Z is still not on the official Kaiju-approved musician list. Peelander has invaded Big Battels, Kaiju Monsters have invaded Peelander concerts, Peelander has even invaded the Kaiju Mall, but for some reason, they are not officially approved by the Kaiju Regulatory Commission. Some think this was simply a clerical error, or that the list is simply outdated by about 20 years; a claim which is supported by the presence of Darryl Hall and John Oates on the list. But the Kaiju Commissioner had a chance to rectify this oversight last month, and evidently chose not to.

So what difference does it make if Peelander is on some silly list or not? Well, according to legal experts, the video can now be viewed as a breach on contract for any monsters appearing in it. And while no one expects Kaiju to sue over a video they had a hand in making, it creates an uneasy precedent that clears the way for any Kaiju monster to appear in any music video they wish without Kaiju's permission. You'll recall nine years ago, when the late Multimoog was prevented from appearing in the video for Limp Bizkit's "We Got the Moog, Son (Yeah!)". With Kaiju monsters appearing in this new video, the KRC is relatively powerless to stop anything else from happening.

But enough of that legal mumbo jumbo. Enjoy the video! It has everything you could possibly want in a music video, plus ninjas!

Slo Feng Goes For Broke, Goes Broke

The late-game heroics of Ben Roethlisberger and Santonio Holmes were just enough to snatch Super Bowl victory from the jaws of defeat in the last minute of last night's game, but for Kaiju Hero Slo Feng, it was too little, too late. Slo Feng last week revealed he had taken out a mortgage on his home and picked the Steelers, who were favored by seven points. Although he was correct about who would win, Slo Feng lost the bet after the Steelers only won by four points.

It was one of the more exciting games in Super Bowl history, at least in comparison to the last Steeler Super Bowl, with the decision up in the air until the final seconds. But for unlucky gamblers like Slo Feng, the verdict was seemingly set with 2:47 remaining in the fourth quarter, as it looked obvious that it would take a miracle for the Steelers to go up by 7 or more when they were trailing by 3.

The loss is a devastating one for Slo Feng who, like most Americans, admitted he otherwise wasn't interested in the game at all leading up to the matchup. After losing hundreds of thousands of dollars in the last few months betting against the Cardinals repeatedly, Slo Feng needed this game to pull even. But with the big loss, Slo Feng now finds himself in possibly irreversable debt. The lesson, Kaiju fans, is that gambling is illegal, and not recommended unless you really know what you're doing. Stay tuned for more as this develops, as well as handy gambling tips.

Tension in the Sea Amigos?

Despite an automatic bid into the upcoming Double Danger Tandem Title Tournament to determine a number 1 contender against the Furious Furries (more on that soon!), there appears to be dissent amongst the ranks of the two remaining Sea Amigos. After cutting what they considered to be the dead weight of Call-Me-Kevin last summer and turning their trio into a duo, things haven't particularly gone wrong with Unibouzu and D.W. Cycloptopuss III, but rather, nothing seems to be happening at all.

"I dunno, it seems like the Sea Amigo's ship might be sailing, pun partially intended," said Unibouzu. "I mean, we were named #1 contenders, and we're gonna win this silly tournament no problem, but I used to be the Kaiju Champion. I was a main eventer. And we're good at this tag thing, but I'm kinda getting a little restless. Not to mention, it seems like nothing's getting done on the new member front."

"Well, maybe if he spent a little less time with Spice, this wouldn't be a problem," sniped Cycloptopuss, referring to Uni's girlfriend whom he met last month. "I mean, don't tell him I said this, but really, I can't stand her. She's at the apartment every night, she doesn't even have a real job, and she won't stop talking. I'm trying to get work done, and all night I'm hearing her talk and talk and talk. Even last night, I'm trying to watch the Super Bowl, and she's just making catty comments about Brenda Warner and talking about how crazy Troy Polamalu's hair is. Yeah, I get it. He has crazy hair. Shut up and watch the game." Needless to say, things seem to be getting a little tense under the sea.
