"Say Hello to My Little Friend"

I finally finished RE 4 today and man was it fun. I continued off from where i last left off some days ago at the beginning of chapter 5-3 and continued all the way till the end. So fun. This game's boss fights are just too awesome. I loved the Krauser fight and it's my fave of 'em all. So in all, it took me just over 19 hours to beat the game w/ 941 kills, 77% hit ratio and 0 deaths (of course :P). Only exclusive i got was the Red9 and Striker. I bought a tactical vest for the last boss fight just for the hell of it since i had extra cash. Never really needed it as Saddler's way easy, however the mission after Saddler was a bitch for me. Anyways, major props for Capcom for reinventing the game bringing the popularity back to the franchise. Up next, Seperate Ways, then Assignment Ada and i'll think about Mercenaries since i want to get back to DQ 8 soon.

final pic of my Gemini Knives theme:
hawt, older and developed chicks, just the way i like it ^^. i'll have another theme up in the next couple of days ;).

Happy Blow Jober New Year

Well, first of all Happy Chinese New Year, especially those born during the year of the Dog. I've been sorta busy as of late as i got a assignment due tomorrow. Being Chinese myself, i don't think I'll head downtown to celebrate cuz it'll be packed and i've got other stuff to do. Gonna have dinner w/ my relatives though, since i am 'alone'.

so yeah, I checked out Strigendo My Blow Jober Act.1 yesterday and Pink Pineapple continues to impress giving me once again the best hentai of the month. That's two in a row as Gausu was just amazing last month. Very awesome start to PP's resurrection. Production values were just all around superb and copied the awesome feel and camera angles that Yuki Seto used in the comic. Character designs were beautiful and matched Seto's art nicely. As shown before, ep.1 covered Mizuho and Mikura's story from the manga. Some changes were made to make it flow better and some scenes weren't included from the manga. Still, it was really good as Mizuho is definitely the master of BJs and sure likes to drink and swallow :P. She's also the hottest character in the manga IMO, so it sorta sux that there won't be much of her in future episodes. Her scenes in the anime feature a awesome BJ and one ramming scene. The pump action is kinda short sadly, it is then followed by a BJ which she loves. Mikura's scene takes place in the middle of the episode and it's mostly straight on sex. Very good stuff if you're a fan of hers. Anyways I give this an A cuz of it's light consensual happy sex, it's eye candy, good adaptation and Mizuho. Ep.2 (yesh an episode 2 is coming w/ a April 28 listing) will feature Miyazawa, Kirishima and Asaoka sensei. Asaoka is my fave from these 3, however, but don't expect any action from her unless PP plans not to follow the manga for this ep.2. Asaoka will only provide some fanservice shots in someone's fanatasy, like how Mizuho served for some scenes this episode. Much action will be focused on Miyazawa and Kirishima, which is really good judging from the scenes in the manga. Anyways, Let's hope for an episode 3 as there's more girls in the manga which haven't been introduced and let's hope w/ Strigendo's popularity that they will animate Seto's Accelerando which is very hawt as well and features some familiar faces from Strigendo.

Next up is Yakin 3 Experiment 3 which i also watched yesterday. Well, the preview for this showed much promise having my fave girl Reika doing it w/ Shizune. This lesbian action scene was the main scene and it was in the beginning of the episode (there's a bit of Shizune action in the end, it's a BJ and short shot of blood). Started out very hawt and ended decently when my girl Reika took out the phallic toy :P. So yeah, that was it as the rest was mostly dedicated to story which i didn't enjoy much this episode. Sora's even more of a tool and has resulted into a slave. Ep.2 was much more enjoyable story-wise cuz it was light and very funny, the only thing i didn't enjoy was the loli-looking Hiyori, but it was still enjoyable. This episode is all serious and stuff and left me disappointed cuz i thought they would continue w/ the comedy. The anime hasn't shown any of the nasty stuff the Yakin series has been known for but i can see this all changing. The definite + this episode was more Sakurako screentime as the girl's my 2nd fave and judging by the end of this episode, she'll get her due next episode....YESH! Oh, don't let that final shot of the dog fool you, there's no bestiality in the game unless Discovery decides to go this route.

I also checked out the FP 舞-乙HiME VA interview disc. It's the same as the FP 舞-HiME disc done in exact same format, w/ seiyuu's acting and their thoughts and all. There's a lot of seiyuus in this show and sadly not everyone was featured, but i guess that was expected. Just that
舞-HiME's FP got everyone and i liked that. Anyways check some of the pics of the girls (i mostly capped the ones i liked in a shallow kind of way). if you haven't seen Kikuchi Mika before like the special broadcasts on Biglobe's site or her blog or any other media, then you'll see how hawt she is now and what nice figure she's also got. Me still wuv Chiba Saeko more :P. Anyways, to take a look at Mika's goodies, i suggest checking out the Kikuchi Mika fansite - Sweethearts (hey, look! she's wearing the same Cool Mint shirt w/ Kinoshita Ayumi ^^). Ai Shimizu's there only cuz of the Mikoto cat she's holding :P.

Yeah, i know i missed a GK pic yesterday, oh well. There will still be 7 pics to complete my theme.
I'll end off w/ naughty nsfw pics of my fave girls from today's hentais. Up next (and final for the month) Yakin 2 Ope.3

Mizuho BJ and my everyone's fave woman in charge, Reika.

'Master' Miller, U traitor!

Well, the 'traitor' part is also related to 舞- 乙HiME w/ it's backstabbings like the referenced game. Anyways, 舞- 乙HiME's new OP has definitely sparked more questions to this awesome show. I was gonna do a screen by screen grab of the OP but bakaboobie had done that for me. Anyways, it's Friday, and i don't feel like posting much, so here's some random and interesting Hisayuki Hirokazu pics of the character [the blonde chick whom i posted here along w/ the other campaign chicks from, she's donning the Vega's (not from SF cuz that would be Balrog :P) mask from Gear Senshi Dendoh] that Otome has heavily borrowed from, just like Rena and some others.

if you're a Hisayuki fan like me, you'd know that this pic is an old one from his site before he revamped it. He had a boatload of Gear Senshi Dendoh art there. I have a few pictures of her but they're shit quality.

Here's a sketch by Hisayuki:

He updated his site today, so the new top image features Nina in her Meister outfit from a pose in the OP, similar to his Nina & Arika drawing.

oh yes, my AJ package will definitely arrive next week as it somehow got into a transport delay in Wilmington OH and is still stuck there...WHAT...THE...FUCK?!

Great Ones or should I say Great Mammories

Well, today's Wayne Gretzky's B-day, he's 45 today. As noted yesterday, I like Gretzky and the guy's been my idol since i was a kid. Yes, hockey's big here. So yeah, i used to buy all things oilers and kings and stopped after he went to St.Louis and then NY. That was also when i stopped collecting hockey cards. Anyways, best wishes to him.

Secondly, I watched the Bible Black ep.3 remake (from the box set) which basically has ep.3 completely re-animated w/ slightly better animation. The art however, has been vastly improved upon and is as good as the Longinus series. Man, what a difference when you do a side by side comparison. Definite must see for the fans. However, it's interesting that only ep.3 got totally redone. When will we ever see this uncensored, no one will know.

There was also a special 10 min. short called Imari Only. It's basically an extra for the fans, probably thanking them for buying the box set. anyways, the short is similar to the Takashiro shorts and Forbidden Art short featuring Saeki. So we get a 8 min action scene featuring Imari getting raped by some unknown classmate from school at night. it's good action and what we'd expect from BB. Of course, like the other shorts, there's no relation to the main storyline. It probably takes place after the final episode of Walpurgis since the guy doesn't go back door and we don't see red. She doesn't go futanari but gets pretty horny. Anyways, take what you will of this short if you're an imari fan, it's just fanservice.

Bunch of cool HiME related stuff released today, like the Fuuka Taisen movie trailer and ZHiME's new OP. I'll make a post dedicated to it some other time, but just have to say that Natsuki, Mai, Midori & Tomoe were so awesome and haawwwt.

Gemini pic:

and for the Imari fans, here's an HCG.

Bloody pulp

well, the focus of this post is fighting (though there's nothing directly related to the crap series known as Street Fighter EX ^^). I'm pretty tired today and my hand is kinda hurtin', have a blister too. why? well after class today, i went to the arcades w/ my friends. played some more KOF XI, my team includes terry, iori, kim and sometimes, ash, shen and elisabeth (i mostly pick her cuz she's hot but she's pretty shitty IMO). Also, played some T5.1 and 3S. I got my ass kicked in 3S and feel like going back and practicing. After that, i went to play my friend's SFZ3 Double Upper for his PSP. It's a fantastic game and undoubtedly the best portable fighter. the tag variable battle mode is fun but not that great when compared to Capcom's own Vs. series. Still, it's a nice and welcome addition. Ingrid still plays like shit as in CFJ. My friend got the special dpad (which is a bitch since it glues to the PSP dpad and if you remove it, it will lose it's stickiness) and it's an improvement in peforming the special moves. It's still not that great but better than what you're given. Definitely needs some adjusting to it. Nintendo's patented Dpad is still the best, I loved SNES SFs and the GBA's SFA3 ('cept for the 4 buttons). Anyways, since i play fighters religiously and seriously, i can't take this game seriously even though it's the best version of all the SFZ/A 3. I'm so used to stick, thus playing against the CPU or against another player w/ 4 face buttons and 2 shoulder buttons feels weird to me now. On some related news, Capcom announced yesterday that they will release Street Fighter Alpha Anthology for the PS2 in NA this summer! Needless to say, I AM STOKED! It's about time as many have been wating for this. Pocket fighters is a nice bonus, even though i found that game kinda lame gameplay-wise, though graphically it was awesome and amusing w/ all those neat cameos and animations. I rather have Super Puzzle Fighter II Turbo :P. I am sorta disappointed that the SFA 3 included here is the arcade and not the DC one w/ all the console exclusive characters (the page states 25, not including the 3 hidden in the arcade version). It's cool that it will have dramatic battle mode, but i could care less for that. IGN's got cool title and menu shots of the game here and the logo can be seen at street fighter devotion. It also seems like there's no online, which definitely sux. I bet a Xbox version will come out after w/ online, since it's much easier on the Xbox server. Man, w/ all this gaming, i really got to finish RE4 soon since i've been meaning to play it but just held back cuz of my urge of fighting. *sign*

other game news of interest: Tourist Trophy (the gran turismo of motorcycles) scored a 32/40; Eyeshield DS scored a 30/40 and Bust a Move DS scored a 27/40 on famitsu.

Hot yummy pics of Dixie and the Rumbles Roses XX chicks can be seen at Jeux-France. On that note, i'm not digging Dixie's graphical look more and more @_@. Her 'inferior' PS2 model was way more yummy IMO. Gametrailers also has a new "exclusive trailer".

I saw ppl playing Dirge of Cereberus today. The CG scenes i saw were jaw-dropping as expected. As mentioned, they're Advent Children quality. In-game cutscenes were okay and gameplay graphics were meh by today's PS2 standards. The RE4 aiming looks hard to control but also easy (cuz of 'dumbed-down' auto aim). The melee fighting looks cool for a bit but gets stale and repetitive. Anyways, get this game for the CG movies like I will. If you haven't seen the trailer yet, check out Cloud, Tifa, Yuffie and the rest of the FF7 gang (oh, like Vincent :P) here, played against the Gackt's (what a homo, IMO :P) Redemption, which isn't too bad.

some sad movie news: yes, you may have heard Chris Penn died yesterday before his movie, The Darwin Awards premiered at Sundance. Tragic and shocking. I liked the guy for the roles he did, especially in Reservoir Dogs and True Romance which are some of my fave movies (mostly cuz they're written by Tarantino). Cause of death is still unknown. May he R.I.P. then.

manga catch: trying to get caught up in Naruto and Bleach, though i must say the latest chapter of Bleach proves interesting (love the colored chapter spread, Rangiku hit me w/ your snowballs!). Naruto is getting back into the fighting again and the popularity vote goes to Sasuke again w/ Naruto taking another dive to 4th now. Though i am going WTF w/ the rest. It's cool that Kakashi got #2 but Deidara and Sasori being so high? Fuck that, Itachi and Yondaime got shafted IMO. The art for this poplarity sucks too (ie. Neji) and so boring. Kishimoto, get some cool poses wouldja? It's also funny to see Sasuke in his old CS look as either Kishimoto doesn't want to spoil us or still has no fucking clue on his new design :P. I've been very disappointed w/ this guy since the time skip and hope he has the guts to end it soon like he said he would.

hockey news: well the pens did a raping on Ovechkin w/out Super Mario. Crosby got 4 points 2night but Ovechkin is still leading for the Calder. Anyways, I just want to mention Lemieux's 2nd retirement and how great he was. The 2nd best player to ever play the game. This guy's got 1723 points in 915 games, 7th all time whereas everyone above him has played at least 1000 games. If he were healthy and didn't suffer any problems, he just might have been able to to surpass Gretzky. I love Gretzky though ^_^. Gretz had an average of 1.92 pts./game whereas Lemieux had a 1.88 pts./game. He was truly super. Many greats retiring this year, first Hull; then Messier; Yzerman announcing that it's his final year and now Lemieux for good.

something mainstream anime: shot of the my-hime 'movie'. My order for it is getting ready, i can't wait!

As you can see, i got Street Fighter 2 #2A today. Great art w/ an awesome Ryu vs. Sagat fight. The Cammy door poster is apparently out in some regions, unfortunately my comic store hasn't gotten it yet. Also, I checked the new Previews, it had the covers for issue 5 and a future rival schools cover (i forgot which one). SF2#5 Cover A has T.Hawk and Cammy on front facing against the Dolls (as always, it's done by Alvin), Cover B has the 4 SF2 bosses (done by Andrew Hou) and the foil features Gen (done by Sven). I forgot Rival School's covers. I just remember Cover B is done by Omar Dogan (w/ Hinata and Sakura) and it looks great. cover A is by Rey obviously but i don't remember who's on it, i forgot the foil too. I haven't seen these covers online yet, but i'll post them once i do.

Final thing, I checked out Boin 2 and Kurai Mirai today. Kurai Mirai....bleh. It had potential right off the bat, then that hot chick getting two boys gaying each other up turned me off. Add to that, the main action scene involved a loli-like chick...ugh. Hot chick scene is what saved it for me and kept me watching till finish.
Now, i had high hopes for Boin2. Ep.2 had the same quality of art and animation as episode 1 (ie. not amazing but above average and inconsistent). The episode was good as it's just all sex like episode 1. However what let me down was that the action scenes involved 2 of the girls i didn't care for and again, nothing on Natsuko. The trailer basically just showed the fucking ending which had me in high hopes of more Touko, as she comes in in the end and i was like "yesh, more touko ACTION" but NO. Anyways, if you're a Nao and Mitsugu fan, you'll dig and more power to ya. This episode can also mean the end of it as the ending makes it seem that way. It's ambiguous as they can add more episodes if they feel like it. But knowing Milky, the wouldn't want to and just want to work on new stuff.

so here's another gemini knives pic:

Red Knives

I don't know about you but i'm personally a fan of Scarlett Johansson. She's young (only 21!), talented and damn hot. Her rack is just yum. Anyways, found this video a couple of days ago and just wanted to show you that being gay has it's advantages ^^. If you watched the Golden Globes on E! then you've probably seen it, I however didn't (cuz i was watching 24 and i don't have E!). Here's the vid (audio is slightly off) and enjoy the pics of Scarlett from the GGs above. Blogger reduces the quality of the pics, i have those pics in higher res. I love her "What is going on?", so hawt. Can't wait for Match Point, which is pretty different from the usual Woody Allen stuff.

As mentioned, I'm starting a theme today cuz I feel like it. This week will be Gemini Knives. Most of the pics I will be posting for this show is easy to find if you're interested and just search. Not much details have been revealed on this gimik project but i hope it'll come out soon (whether it be an anime or novel or whatever).

game news: this is yesterday's news, i was just too lazy to post about it anywhere. Game Watch has more pics of Xenosaga I II DS.

movie news: big spoiler if you click on the following link, but it's not like you didn't expect it. anyways, there's also a look at psylocke and callisto. DVDrama link

Lastly w/ Boin ep.2 out, i want to celebrate with my 2 fave chicks from the game, Touko and Natsuko. My girlfriend is coming over tonight so i haven't been able to check it out yet along w/ Kurai Mirai. I'll do so tomorrow though.

Natsuki and I are doing some bonding 2night

Shit, did i say that too loud? Anyways, quick update as i got a night class. Today's also Election Day in Canada for a new Prime Minister. I have to say that i don't really fucking care and I hate Harper. I still voted though.

So some good news, my YesAsia package has finally shipped (w/ SPL, 2 mangas and a Hisayuki-related anime) and i won't be getting it in like 6-10 days (hopefully). I'll post pics when i get 'em. The shit news, it finally shipped cuz they couldn't find the movie Shanghai Shanghai which contains an awesome fight between Yuen Biao and Sammo Hung (Another rare Sammo villian role and probably his first).

My~HiME pic of the day (and pic of the day) is this one from my My-HiME novel Side-B, which i posted on AoD last year when i got the book. and here's a fig link that i found as well as the one posted on AoD.
Game news: just wanted to mention that Tifa and Cloud will make cameos in the FF7 DC game. check out the nomura title art at Jeux France. I will get this game only for the amazing CG movies, but i will get this cheap as it looks like a RE 4 kinda knock off.

Tomorrow, I'll start a theme just cuz i feel like it.

Ninjas made from Metal and Blood

Sorta quick update today, as I got personal things to attend to. So, been getting questions on where I got my avatar from at AoD. Well, i luckily happened to find it from other boards some weeks ago. Anyways, I present the pic in full now for those who've yet to find it.

With that aside, i just wanted to mention that i watched the Naruto OVA that came w/ Narutimate Hero 3 for the PS2. Well, it's an okay OVA that sorta takes place during the Sasuke Rescue arc but doesn't cuz Sasuke's here and the Sand-nins are in their new duds from that arc. Anyways, it's about a crystal snatching tournament, which is the same as the game's RPG mode. It basically develops from that and the OVA shows you on some of the hidden crystals that the player can use towards the game. The OVA has good art and animation as expected from the trailer i mentioned a while ago. However, the fights are really short and therefore, a disappointment IMO. We see some repeated moves taken from the manga, Ino & Sakura clash; Lee's double kick on Gai which is similar to his fight w/ Sasuke; Kakashi taking out Naruto's Rasengan and Sasuke's Chidori. he does it in a slightly cooler way cuz he uses sharingan when they come head on. though in the manga he just chucks them w/ no sharingan, which i found cooler. but of course, circumstances were different. So here's some caps, mostly focused on the chicks i dig in the show (Anko, Tsunade, Temari and Ino) and some of the other charas (like Naruto & Sasuke gayness as well as 'dead' characters).

Lastly, i'm treading along RE 4 once again, finished chapter 5-1 earlier today (soooo looong) and just want to announce that Capcom's selling a soundtrack book that contains 2 CDs (62 tracks, 160 mins of music) and a 48 page book. The book is Japanese however. It's going for a price of 24.95 US (b4 shipping) thru their site or you can get it w/ the game for 59.99 US (b4 shipping). I also took a look at the PS2 chainsaw controller when i picked up my Tales of Legendia artbook. Have to say that it's mighty nice in person, but not worth the price IMO. Also check out the new Shin Onimusha commercial to listen to a sample of the Hamasaki Ayumi song 'startin' (which wasn't on her new, (miss)understood album) if you're a fan of hers like me.

new pic this week:
