''ShiftyLook'' was a website dedicated to official WebComics based off of various Creator/BandaiNamcoEntertainment properties. Largely an attempt to reach out to the western market and revive some of their series (specifically games from the 80's and 90's). In March 2014, Shifty Look announced its closing. All of its comics were ended, but remained accessible until September 30th, 2014, when the site was taken down completely. [[http://jimzub.tumblr.com/post/170494471175/hi-jim-im-a-big-fan-im-writing-because-while#notes According to Jim Zub]], this was because Bandai Namco had a change in management, and the new people in charge didnít feel the initiative fit their plans, and as such, it was phased out. UDON, a partner with them during their tenure, would later release the ''Bravoman'', ''Wonder Momo'', and ''Katamari'' comics in volume trades. Thankfully, enterprising fans have managed to [[KeepCirculatingTheTapes preserve all the comics in their entirety]] and [[http://supercomputer276.tumblr.com/post/104618682889/shiftylook-archives archived them]] for viewing.

[=ShiftyLook=] also produced three web animation series, two based on the ''Bravoman'' and ''Wonder Momo'' comics, and a completely original series based on ''Mappy''. All three used to be able to be seen on [[https://www.youtube.com/user/ShiftyLookNBGI/featured their YouTube channel]], but that too has since vanished from YouTube. Thankfully, every episode of all three series have been saved by fans and are still viewable today. All in all, the [=ShiftyLook=] project ended in failure and was quickly forgotten by Bandai-Namco, leaving it as little more than an internet curiosity and odd piece of the company's history.
