Rumble in my pants ^_^

Wanted to post this yesterday but was busy w/ T7: The Canadian Fighting Game Championship on the weekend. I obviously didn't participate as i'd get whupped, thus i was only a spectator.
N E WAYS, I"ve made it obvious in the past that I'm a fan of Yakumo. Followed by Mikoto and then Itoko.

However, they just don't get as much loving as the fan fave Eri (as shown by this recent spread and the recent episodes).

There SO needs to be more Itoko (sorry it's an old crap scan that was found), and of course Mikoto.

Doing something different, I'm gonna be posting somewhat short posts from now on w/ a/some random exploitation pic(s) of the female anatomy (more in line w/ fabio's style). Since posts are short i'll probably be updating more on a daily basis (hopefully).
I will probably have some in-depth posts on certain topics. The pics will be quite fanservicey and i suggest that readers to not go to this blog at work anymore (it still won't contain upfront nudity ;)).

Anyways, i saw Sora no iro Mizu no iro 3 days ago (fuckin' A) and i only have Ringetsu to watch. I'll have my hentai post up hopefully soon. Meanwhile enjoy the pics. u can see that i sorta have a theme going.

So to kick it off i had to show off some T2 and Kuroda Sora no Iro Mizu no Iro tease/goodness:
Though the main courses are the two animes that i mentioned that i was following (and still) from last season, Witchblade & Simoun. More pics coming atcha later.

Pirates, Idols, Angels, 'Creatures' etc. = hottness

finishing up the theme today w/ B.Jenet, Athena (my fave costume of hers from 2k2), Angel (uber), Diana (it's really a Kula pic since Diana is a NPC but i like Diana), Leona, Hotaru (she's actually non-canon but i decided to include her cuz she's in the PS2 version of KoF XI) and Shion. I think that about covers all the females from the main franchise, lemme know if i missed anyone ;). Yes, I remembered Kaoru but she's an exception for a maybe ;).

Don't feel like mentioning gaming news much today. but i will mention this,

Nothing special but here's the stand for Blue Dragon being displayed at the Jump Tour.
and DOAX2 famitsu scans (yum Christie and Helena, though Tina and Lei Fang aren't too bad themselves here)

want to mention some movie news as i'm a pretty avid movie goer. Anyways my usual movie source, JoBlo (linked to the right) covered the SD comicon this year. He posted some news of the Tarantino + Rodriguez movie, Grind House. This movie is sounding really awesome. Cast has been revealed, along w/ some pics & posters. It's gonna be two movies in one baby!! and i'm liking the sound of these fake trailers. I really like the homage w/ posters and all.

My Bleach Heat the Soul 3 arrived. I ordered from YesAsia this time since there was no preroder bonus. Shipping was fast (and free) and no custom charges ^^. They also gave a me a free Hong Kong gaming mag, this is the first time they've done so, don't know if it's cuz i've been ordering games from them for over a year now. Anyways, I haven't tried the game yet, will probably do so on the weekend. Ulquiorra better be kick ass!!

The My-Otome DVD Omake 7 came out on the internet today as DVD 7 comes out in JPN soon or early. It's funny as expected and my Midori gave us some sweet fanservice!! I won't be getting vol.7 till probably August or September. That's if I decide to combine it w/ vol.9 to save on shipping. This will all depend on my income. I'm currently leaning towards Sept.

Lastly, on the NOT SAFE for WORK front (meaning ALL links), i'm contemplating on whether I should cover hentais on the blog. Those who knew me from AoD knew how much i watched hentai. However, i've just been inconsistent on covering them each month and there's not much response (aside from bakaboobie when he was around). I'll probably cover this month as there's some good ones that i've been waiting for like Hana to Hebi (which i talked about in the past) and the much anticipated 'Taka Tony' one, Sora no Iro Mizu no Iro in which he did the original cg art for the game. I'll cover next month's too since there's a boatload of good ones like MY much anticipated Jokei Kazoku, Milk Junkies 3 (going WEST baby!), Hana to Hebi 2 (
the trailer for Hana to hebi vol.2 went up weeks ago at official site), Shin Kyouhaku 2 (hey, i like the animation, which is gggrrrrreat), the Yakin Byoutou spinoff, Kazama Mana and Kininaru Kimochi 4 (which i covered a few months ago, a trailer was posted almost a week ago at the given link). Milky put up trailers several days ago for Jokei Kazoku and Milky Junkies 3 so you can see for yourself how awesome it will be (Ringetsu 1 is also up). Their Press Release went up too days ago. Nothing worth mentioning about (Ringetsu 2, Kura Mirai 2 and Enbo The Best). So yeah, there's my hentai rant.

Anyways, i'll probably be posting random pics and have a Jokei Kazoku theme in the future!!! Latz.

Insider Insight

Posting a bunch of KoF pics since i'm behind. Hope to be done all the chicks in the series in the next day or two. I won't be including the MI chicks like Lien (even though so hawt), Luise, Mignon, Lilly etc. nor the EX chicks (Moe, Jun & Miu) since they are non-canon to the main KoF storyline. So today will feature Shermie (done by nekkeau), Chizuru x Maki Kagura, Kasumi, Hinako, and May Lee.

Well, I've been quite busy last week w/ life in general. It's the usual work, outings, lady friend and when time permitted, gaming (^^). Checked out Clerks 2 since i'm a Kevin Smith fan, and have to say that it was friggin' HEELARIOUS. Not as good as Clerks 1 but damn good and ppl should really check it out. Rosario Dawson is SOOO HAWT. Also had a mini vacation on the weekend as we drove down to Wasaga Beach. I've also been planning a vacation w/ my g/f and friends to head out West, this time to the States. Cities, i'll be checking out will be Seattle, Los Angeles, San Francisco, San Jose, San Diego, and Vegas BABY! Maybe I should check out Evo 2k6 and join some of the best :P...yeah...right. I'd get killed. Speaking of fighting games, i've started to get back playing my Virtua Fighter 4 Evolution (on PS2) as I've been watching a lot of VF5 match vids at hk-vf and it's getting me hooked. So i've been practicing diligently and trying to get good. I hope to test my skills at my arcade w/ VF Final Tuned soon. It won't be awhile till my arcade gets VF5 so i heard. So on the gaming front, the following games are what i got last week and recently: Battle Stadium D.O.N., Garou Densetsu Battle Archives 1, Super DBZ, Tekken PSP, Sengoku Basara 2 (came in today) and Persona 3, the main game that i'm really playing and consuming my gaming time (aside from VF4E). I was considering on waiting for US Persona 3 but as i mentioned MANY MONTHS AGO, this was my most anticipated JPN RPG this year and i'm not gonna wait till Feb 2007 (or watever) to play. So yeah, P3 is my 2nd JPN RPG that i'm seriously thinking about (and will) finish. I didn't get the LE since it was over my budget and my contemplating didn't help as the LEs weres old FAST.

So my impressions:
P3: awesome graphics, gorgeous cutscenes, decent battle system and wonderful story (from what i gather). Those who've played Persona before will obviously enjoy since it's the only RPG that really incorporates JPN school life (which i loved about it). Oh yeah, did i mention how much me wuvs Mitsuru :P ^^.
Battle Stadium D.O.N.: This game is da shit, literally. I see why it got such a low score now. It plays like Smash Bros. but crappier IMO. As big a fan that i am of all 3 series (especially DBZ), it still doesn't hold my interests and not because i'm hardcore fighter. Since this game is SSB, it's a party game. Thus, I did have some fun w/ my buddies, but we then switched over to SSBM for some better enjoyment. The game has pretty weak graphics. Backgrounds look pretty bland w/ a little bit of interactivity. The 3D character models are horrid compared to other companie's games for these 3 series. The OP models look the best w/ the DBZ characters looking the worse. I seriously thought this was a waste of my money and wished i had spent it on something else. As i knew this was for the fans, i still think that fans should give it a rent before buying. Eighting should've ripped their own N:GNT games instead of Nintendo/HAL Labs.
Garou Densetsu BA 1: Now this was a fighting game that i enjoyed despite it being old school. I owned all the games on SNES save for FF3 (though i played that on PC/Arcade and later MAME). It's a good collection of THE series of SNK. CuzTerry Bogard is definitely THE face of SNK as Ryu is for Capcom (Kyo Kusanagi? fuck him). Since the NGOC are mainly rips from their games, it does suffer a bit in sound. Controls vary depending on game to game. FF/GDSpecial is probably the best of the 4 as it's the most balanced w/ sweet controls. FF1's controls were just horrid. FF/GD3 isn't anything great or special to those who've played it before, it's not as good as FFS gameplay wise, but fun to play as the 'new' characters (yeah, it's all about Blue Mary here). I can't wait for Battle Archives 2 w/ the Real Bout Series. I wonder if they'll get the sick PSX port, Dominated Mind (w/ anime cutscenes and all). I sorta doubt that as DM was awesome and the LE made better w/ the Bonus Disc.
Super DBZ: no comment since i've commented on the JPN version. Only that the US version doesn't have Head Cha-la 2k5 for the intro and there's no JPN voice over option. Everything else pretty much remains intact from the JPN version. A kick ass game for fans like me (DBZ fan AND hardcore fighter).
Tekken:Dark Resurrection PSP: Game is fuckin' A all around in terms of presentation, gameplay, extras. However, the fuckin' PSP digipad is SOOO SHIT. Sorry, but true Tekken players play on stick which i have been for years and when ppl bring their pads to the arcade for T5, you sorta get laughed at. Thus, when i resorted to playing this, it was frustrating adjusting to it since it's been years since i played Tekken on pad. Also the handheld is not really ideal for this game as one would use their fingers for the buttons cuz using solely the thumb isn't fast enough for moves (yeah, try doing Nina's muli-throws w/ your thumb). Thus, you have to plant the system on something flat instead of holding it. So my friend wasn't too happy when he saw me. So yeah, as good as this game is, the PSP system just sucks for this game and i'll stick w/ the arcade thank you.

I only got SB2 today and haven't played it. Details when i get around to it. Speaking of Basara, Capcom announced Sengoku Basara 3 today, but didn't say what system.

My Bleach Heat the Soul 3 should arrive this week and i'll post impressions whenever. Other things i got last week aside from games were, My-HiME Vol.3, some old anime titles that i found cheap which needed an upgrade from their VHS counterparts (Voogie's Angel, Photon and Street Fighter II: The Animated Movie, the latter being very a very obvious choice for me to get). Street Fighter II issue 4 comic also came out a couple weeks ago as did Rivals Schools issue 2. I got both UDON comics and have been contemplating about getting the Street Fighter Ultimate Edition book, Summer Sketch Book 2k6 and Alvin Lee Portfolio 2. All these items were available at the San Diego Comicon but you can also order from Club UDON (linked to the right). However, w/ my upcoming trip, i had to hold back. W/ all this stuff that i got recently, one must wonder....WHERE the FUCK are the pics? well, sorry to say but i lent my good buddy my camera and won't have it for several weeks until he gets back from his trip to Europe (in time for MY trip ;)).

So yeah, i've been behind on game news on the site, which i'm sorta feeling lazy about posting now on my blog for some reason. but here's a few that held my interest today.
My usual source Ruliweb lets us know that SCEI has developed another Bleach game right after HtS 3. This time for the PS2, entitled Bleach Blade Battlers. It's to be scheduled October 12 and is available for preorder at sites like P-A. So after October 12, expect another Sony Bleach game to be announced a couple days later :P (like one to coincide w/ the movie ;)). Official site, characters and movies can be seen here. IMO, this game looks like another shitty Bleach PS2 game. I'm happy that it's a fighting game (the action and rpg bleach were just crap) finally but i just don't dig 'full' 3D 1-4 player fighting games. this game is like Destrega 4 player now. I really want a Heat the Soul style of fighting game on the PS2. Ho hum.
Ruliweb also shows off some scans of the wicked looking Sparking Neo/BT 2, Super DBZ and the action motion sensor game i talked about.

I want to note some old 360 news in case of those who don't pay attention to MS:
Been a lot of media around Capcom's Xbox 360 game, Dead Rising (2)
It was announced last week that the 360 is getting a Onee-chan bara game, Onee-chan bara X The Devil Evolution Hum those who've played the PS2 games know this is just a Dynasty Warriors kind of game w/ scantily clad heroines and zombies for enemies. While i own all three games (1,2 and 2 SE), the game sorta sux IMO (due to controls, camera and boring repetitiveness that's not as good as Koei's DW or SW). I play cuz of the guilty pleasure of the hotties :P. Anyways, scans went up on Xboxyde last week and official site went up today (though the sections aren't open). Looking yummy as usual Aya.
Speaking of hotties, check out the old famitsu scans they posted up: DOAX2, and iDOLM@STER.
Enchanted Arms videos

Joystiq lets us know that the Suda 51 (killer 7) Wii game, Heroes trailer can be seen at youtube.
The release date for Gyakuten Saiban 2 DS is Oct. 26...sweet.
I want to note that the DS browser sold off like hot cakes today in JPN and is practically all sold out.
My most anticipated RPG this year (yeah FFXII, i'm not looking at you), Rogue Galaxy seems to have been delayed to 2007 ;_;. January is the word.
Interesting MGS4 and ZOE tidbits
Of note, the stripping fighting game i noted reopened their site for the 3rd time last week. Jingi Storm official site. still not much to see really.

July 25 3:10 PM EST edit:
currently at work but just want to note that PSXExtreme informs what North American SNK fans have been expecting...the release of their King of Fighters Compilation, Samurai Showdown and Mark of the Wolves are planned for release on PS2 in 2007. Not a big surprise as I had sorta known about this several months ago.
The My-ZHiME site also udpated today, namely the net tv, figure (the midori one looks good 'cept for her face and arika x mai CM fig looks suprsingly awesome as CM's quality is usually shit due tothe size of the mini figs and the price....anyways, meh, cuz i'm finished right? ^^) and DVD omake 8.
Dirge of Cerberus US site went up today. I've covered the CG cinemas of the JPN version and the improvements on the NA version looks sorta promising and might be worth playing again.

Whip it good, Foxy lady!

Whip, drawn by Murata 'wannabe', Tomokazu Nakano for KoF Neowave.

I'm not in the mood for gaming really. I'm actually more into the anime mood today. Anyways, I saw One Piece movie 7 over the weekend thanks to the wonderful dvd rip brought to you by the internet. It was pretty decent, not my fave in terms of action or story compared to the others, but it did have a lot of fanservice to keep me watching as I'm a huge Robin fan. Yes, this will be remembered as the One Piece boobie movie cuz of the heavy focus on Nami's and Robin's yummy funbags. I'll have more insight later.
So most Summer animes have started airing. I haven't been really following anime news like I used to, thus, I only went w/ what I remember and that was one show, Coyote Ragtime Show. The trailer had got me excited many months back when the site went up and the yummy female character designs (aside from the lolis of course :P) 'intrigued' me. The trailer showed some slick animation and action that was on par w/ movies or the HQ OVAs. After watching the first 2 episodes, I really can't wait for more and hope the animation won't take too much of a dive cuz what's been given has been just too good to be true for an anime series. The 'prison break' in episode 1 w/ all the goth/maids androids was sick and the bar/gun fight in episode 2 was amazing. The art DID take a bit of a hit in episode 2 though. Anyways, i'm expecting more good things to come to fill in the void left by Black Lagoon (which will be getting a S2 according to a recent WS GPX scan that i found at 4chan).

Just want to note that the Bleach Memories of Nobody site updated today adding 2 TV spots. It's really nothing special as some who've been watching some raws may have already seen it. That 'trailer' is old too and shows nothing really. While i'm on the Bleach news, the Bleach DS2 site went up yesterday. It's not really open yet. Also, Bleach related, Taka Tony fans may have notice last week that he had another sweet Bleach pic that features Nemu (pretty tame but may be NSFW cuz of camel ^^). T2 also updated his main page w/ a new pic.

The 2nd KOF pic is uber hottie (at least in this original drawing) Foxy, who was only playable in 2k1. Artist is Nona for those who don't know. He's known for his grotesque style, though he's been getting better.

Mature or ImMature: that is the question

4 KoF ladies today. We got the ever cool (and dead ;_;) Mature (FTW) and Vice, as well as 2 recent newcomers to the series, Malin and Momoko. Since they're more recent charas, artworks of them are hard to come by, aside from their official ones of course. Hence, Malin is from the official 2k3 one by Falcoon and Momoko is from a doujin. Yessss....Momoko is 18 year old flat-chested female....^^

Game news:
NEW BLEACH DS 2nd Unveiled in Famitsu!!!! - characters and graphics looks slighty improved but not much as the first game looked really good already. We can see Grand Fisher. I wonder how far they're gonna go w/ the manga and if any Arrancars will be included like the Heat the Soul 3. Though HtS3's Ulquiorra is a special guest obviously for manga fans.

New Famitsu scan of SvC Card Fighters DS from yesterday.
The official SNK site also updated. Nothing to note except for some imode games like Metal Slug Survivor and some goodies added to their 'goods' page like SS box.
Famitsu covers more on their imode games like Days of Memories 2 and MS Survivor.

More DBZ S!N shots, also from yesterday
A new BS D.O.N. CM
More FFIII movie media
Everybody's Tennis scan
More God Hand shots taken from Itmedia - I still don't know who the artist is but it's gotta be SNK's Hiroaki, cuz if it is, it would boggle my mind.
Some Blood+ shots
Some Twilight Princess art
Pokemon DS will be playable online (covers)
A look at the limited edition Deunan fig that comes w/ the Appleseed EX PS2 game
Sega announces another Shining game which T2 hinted about before. Shining Force EXA for the PS2. In related Shining news Shining Wind won't be released until Spring 2k7.
It's been mentioned that Grand Prix Games are working on a Wii game. No details as of what but GPG has worked on the Hajime no Ippo/Victorious Boxer games.
Valkyrie Profile Lenneth site opens (NA)
I just wanted to add this cuz it never caught my attention until now, Matuzimakae Cosplay Sexy Yakyuken. Why? Cuz I didn't know one of my fave JAV actresses was in this, Kaede Matsushima. too bad it's no porno game :P ^^, otherwise gimme a Sora Aoi (my fave) one!!!
With Virtua Fighter 5 coming out in the arcades, my match site source, Go For Broke (linked on the right) put up a demo vid of Vanessa vs. Goh...looking amazing graphically and that AI Vanessa SUCKS! I want to dish out my Vanessa.
Xbox Live summer arcade preview - i mostly posted this for SF2' Hyper Fighting finally being given a date!

Famitsu Scores:
Gunparade Orchestra: Ao no Shou (PS2, Sony): 7 / 6 / 6 / 6 - (25/40)
School Rumble Ni-Gakki (PS2, Marvelous): 7 / 7 / 7 / 6 - (27/40) - can't wait for more Yakumo, Itoko and Mikoto....though i never even finished the 1st game
Battle Stadium D.O.N (GC/PS2, Bandai Namco): 7 / 6 / 7 / 6 - (26/40) - that's surely disappointing, oh well, it won't stop me.
Bleach: Heat the Soul 3 (PSP, Sony): 7 / 7 / 6 / 8 - (28/40) - a pretty meh score but i still can't wait!
Bomberman Portable (PSP, Hudson): 7 / 6 / 6 / 7 - (26/40)
Ultraman Fighting Evolution 0 (PSP, Banpresto): 6 / 6 / 6 / 7 - (25/40)

Crash Bandicoot Festival (NDS, VU Games): 5 / 5 / 5 / 7 - (22/40)

Dengeki PS scores:
Persona 3 (PS2, Atlus): 90 / 90 / 95 / 80 - another awesome review, however....
Jikkyou Powerful Pro Yakyuu 13 (PS2, Konami): 95 / 90 / 100 / 90 - ...proves to be even better!!! What a franchise!

The Beauty Unmasked

So here's the loot I got exactly one week ago today. I've just been busy and lazy. My mangas are always HK versions, so yeah, a couple months behind the JAP tanks. Anyways, the mangas include random volumes of Go Da Gun that I'm collecting. There's sixteen volumes in total and its done. I've been a fan of Katakura Masanori's work since I found out about Mahou Tsukai Kurohime just over a year ago and thus i went on collecting that. I hope it'll be turned into an anime someday as there is a PS2 game for it, so it had some popularity. Go Da Gun is one of his early works before Kurohime and that is why i'm collecting it. GDG is more of your typical shounen fighting manga as there's fights galore (and tons of hawt chicks). It's more my style than Kurohime was, which is more comedy, story and some gun action. While the western setting is cool (for Kurohime), it wasn't my taste, nevertheless, a good manga IMO. So i got off topic :P, the others include Bleach vol.22 and Black Lagoon vol.5. Also, my 'final' figure, Alter Sei since i'm like the greatest Sei lover there is :P :D. I'm having great debates about picking one more figure up and really torn between it. I'll see.

So yeah, my impressions on the Alter Sei are so so. It's great for the priced paid (about 45-50 CDN). The sculpting is really good overall. It came W/ a BASE (unlike Vice's). It's a good size (obviously to go w/ Alter's other BakuTen figs) and great Boobage ^_^. My only problem would lie w/ the face. It's nothing too bad, but it just doesn't really look like Sei especially when i compare it w/ the awesome face (& sculpting) of my Vice Sei. The pose isn't too exciting either as it's almost the same as my mini Sei fig that was included w/ the R2 Sei Box. Anyways, i still like it a lot and hopefully there will be a Sei fig in her bikini outfit that will be mass produced.

Wish I could've included my R2 DVD Sei fig to complete it, but that's all the way home :P.

Game News:
Bleach Heat the Soul 3 Official site update!!! They added the final 2 new characters that i mentioned about in my last post, along w/ movies (as usual). They also opened the Special section w/ the new original anime story!! It's the play mode i mentioned about. It involves Don Kanonji and his new team of Karakura Heroes....members from Soul Society...LOL :D. We got Byakuya as Karakura Blue, Renji as Karakura Red, Hitsugaya as Karakura white and Soi Fong as Karakura Black (you gotta see Soi Fong's reaction...too awesome :D). This mode also involves some new anime scenes specifically for it as one can see from the movie clip.
Itmedia posts some Rigde Racers 2 shots that Ruliweb 'jacked'
Chaos Wars official site posts some new wallpapers!
There's some nice cover art of the upcoming Simple 2000 games @ Ruliweb. The Fire Fighting Banchou's (that i mentioned last post) cover looks SICK!
Some Kinnikuman PS2 shots. Official site can be found here.
Ruliweb posts Wii RPG (that i don't care about) shots, taken from
A glimpse of Taito's Mushihime Best cover - it's old art but i never get old of TK's stuff. This remeinds me that i still need to beat the game...too hard 4 me though ;_;
Naruto RPG 3 DS shots....meh, i shouldn't have bothered.
It's been announced that Dragon Quest Monsters: Joker will be playable at Jump Super Tour 2k6! Sweet BOTH Toriyama designed games!!!
Xboxyde has the first 7 minutes of Capcom's Dead Rising taken from Japan Expo

Lastly, there's a bit more info of Jingi Storm from Ruliweb!! I've known about this game for a month now. The Professor from MMcafe first reported it. It's bascially a fighting game but it involves characters stripping, yes STRIPPING! Heh, that's one reason to get me interested. The game is a 3D fighting game and as you can see, there's girls and guys (in the background), however from the beta testing, Professor mentioned it was mostly guys who were playable and the girls are partners that strip if they lose. These are presented by 2D illustrations drawn by different artists (as one can tell from the link). So yeah, inspirations definitely come from the hentai, Tournament of the gods, Variable Geo games (the PC games as it was a no no for consoles) and prolly the recent Battle Raper games. Definitely not a game for the kiddies, but it's surprising that it'll be in the arcades even though it's somewhat tame IMO. The fighting system doesn't seem to be great from the reports and is reminiscent of Sammy's lost and never officially released, Force Five. meh, a new fighting game is always exciting for me and add to the fact that there's HCGs...sweeet!! HAHAHA.

Rockstar copies Trump, "You're Fired"

I decided to skip out on the KoF theme today but will make up for it.

July 11 9:05 AM EST edit:
Don't think i'll be doing an update today as I got things to attend to (work, school registration etc.), however, I just had to present this, My-Otome vol.8 that shows 2 of my Primary 3!!! Man, if they put Midori instead of Mikoto (the original 3 valkyries), that would've been PEEERRRR-FECT!
The official site was also updated (w/ the usual new top page covering dvd 7 finally), namely a new episode for the net radio, and net tv. The CD section also updated w/ cover of the Otome best collection and the comic section updated w/ vol.5 cover. Lastly, it does seem the OVA will be called Zwei as the OVA section updated their logo.

Diamond are a Girl's best friend...and Guys too ^^

Taka Tony put up a sweet Bleach pic today, so go pay a visit. He's also has some goodies planned (NSFW: 1, 2)
A quickie update as i'm trugging along my KoF theme and want it done ASAP cuz this time i plan on doing all the ladies instead of my usual 7.

Some game news i'd like to mention, especially cuz i'm a DB/DBZ/Toriyama fanboy:
DBZ Sparking! Neo vid from Japan Expo (2nd link if JF doesn't work) - long fights now i see. the fight is Turles (movie 13) vs. Android 13 (movie 7)....they didn't include android 14 & 15 in this game...WTF? A13 needs them for Super 13 (which he turned into in the vid). I guess they'll be in the 3rd iteration :P
Sparking Neo shots from JF - I'm laughing at Tapion fighting there, w/ sword and energy ball since he doesn't do either in the movie..hahahahha
Sparking Neo Developer's Site open
Battle Stadium D.O.N. finally updated their site adding two new sections (event, movie). the movie section shows 3 commercial, one by Goku, one by Luffy and one by Naruto. They're actually old and was shown on youtube and ruliweb weeks ago.

Square Enix opens Project Slypheed (360) site - name change from Project Sylph
Movie and shots of 360's Shuto ko Battle

Another year gone by and the AM show has been announced for September 14-16, will Street Fighter 4 be unveiled? probably not this year....AGAIN and AGAIN.

Since y'know I'm a HUGE Street Fighter fan...a funny vid ^^

July 8 5:56 PM Edit:
Pretty good Germany/Poland game (good job Kahn :P & Schweinsteiger ;)) but it's all about tomorrow! Anyways, i couldn't resist this tidbit of gaming news regarding Bleach Heat the Soul 3.
As stolen from 2chan, Ruliweb posts this sweet scan of the game revealing the last two characters from the site's list, that is, Arrancar from the current manga!!! and Bankai Byakuya. The scan also shows a new play mode, Karakura Heroes Mach...SWEEEET. Also, there's a few shots of the new anime movie in the game. Can't wait for this game, only a few more weeks!

some little bits of game news while i'm at it,
Famitsu posts a few new SNK vs. Capcom CF DS shots (as well as old)
A couple of Sparking Neo shots - boring, why did i even bother.
Again, Famitsu's got some Naruto Konoha Spirits shots - some weird shading to the cel-shading
A look at the Simple 2000 vol.107 game, The Fire's Fighting Banchou - ouuu fighting, hopefully it'll be somewhat fun ^^
I've known this game for a while but for the hell of it, cuz i've been a fan of Eve's chara design and artwork (yesh Marina yeeeesshhhh), some shots of Eve ~New Generation~. I'm contemplating on this game. The game will be released late August.
NDS Japan Expo focus

/end edit

Kof chick today is none other than Kula Diamond. See y'all next week!

Yuri Welcome!

This is gonna be an anime related rant since i rarely talk about it these days as my interest in this hobby IS waning. No game news.

So, w/ Anime Expo ending a few days ago, there wasn't a whole lot of licenses that had me excited save for one, and that is of course Bandai Visual's annoucement of Gunbuster for R1. I'm filled w/ tears of joy just like Noriko ;_;.

Their announcement of Wings of Rean is good too as the show looks great.

the rest of the AX's licenses weren't anything suprising (except for Super Gals S2 but i don't care about that) and most knew who was gonna get it. Therefore, the 2nd anime I'm looking forward to is Bandai Entertainment America's announcement of Ghost in the Shell SAC: Solid State Society. I was hyped ever since the announcement of this and the trailer show ant TAF didn't help. W/ Manga and Bandai releasing the 1st two seasons, it was already a shoe-in that they would get SSS. So it's not surprising but nice to have the confirmation. As for the Compilation Movies/OVAs, for the 1st 2 seasons...meh. I'm only looking forward to the Laughing Man one since I heard that it's got some added footage along w/ some reanimation. Also, i dug the LM plot more than the Individual 11 due to the fact that I've been a Salinger fan since HS. As for the Individual 11 movie, i could care less as I've already seen it. Lemme tell you that it's really not worth it as there is HARDLY any new footage, there's like one scene that comes off the top of my head that they changed. It's the part where Motoko Avatar talks w/ Gouda in his mind, here we see a young, not fucked up in appearnce Gouda first. There is zero animation that is redone, so the movie art looks inconsistent just like the TV series and the music has been changed around. Since this season lacked action, it can get a little boring as more than half the movie takes place during episodes 20-26 which is the meat of the TV show obviously.
And apparently Bandai is in negotiations w/ My-Otome. Tell you the truth, i could really care less since I'm collecting the R2s. I don't plan on double dipping this series like I'm doing w/ My-HiME cuz A)I liked My-HiME MUCH MORE than My-Otome overall B)I don't have the cash for it after i'm done w/ the R2s and OVAs and whatnot and finally C)my waning interest of anime in general.

None of Funi's announcement excited me as them getting more Gonzo animes were expected, thus Solty Rei = *big YAWN*. I'm awaiting their solicit for Witchblade though.

ADV hasn't gotten anything either that interests me, i find them definitely going downhill. Though they'll always have Evangelion re-releases to help 'em out and make fans angry.

So lastly, I come to Geneon as they have finally confirmed my 3rd anime that i'm looking forward to....and that's obviously Black Lagoon. While this was no surprise as one found out last year that they co-produced it, but a early confirmation indicates a earlier release...hopefully, and thus no need to get the R2s IMO. Being a fan of the Black Lagoon & Rei Hiroe WAAY before the anime aired, i definitely can't wait. Speaking of Black Lagoon, my vol.5 HK version arrived earlier this week along w/ some other HK mangas. My 'final' fig, Alter Sei arrived on Monday. If i'm not busy during the weekend, i'll have pics up, otherwise, Monday it is.

And since this is the only anime that i'm watching really, I present the awesome yurirific Simoun vol.1 cover - yesh Nevril're so amazingly hawt ^^.

So I'll end off w/ Yuri Sakazaki and go try out Last Bronx for PS2 now ;).

Gonna make a real upate in the 'morning' as i'm deadbeat tired. I mostly want to mention Persona 3's awesome score.

Persona 3 (PS2, Atlus): 9 / 8 / 8 / 8 - (33/40) - SWEEEET!!!!

"King" of Fighters

First i just want to say Happy 4th of July to my fellow American neighbours and hope y'all have a good time today w/ fireworks and all.

Today's dish:

I sure would like to play the Bastard Online (Game Watch link), I mean wouldn't you....

PS3 loses Assasin's Creed exclusivity (rumour) - that's another blow to Sony as it was the best PS3 looking game at E3. Anyways, i'm just laughing at Sony and how confident they are losing some of these games. Now i'm not a Sony hater but the price is causing developers to think otherwise for the system. I'm seriously hoping for them to lose the console wars for the 1st year of its release. It's all about the Wii baby!

Kikizo posts a very interesting interview w/ the Microsoft guys regarding the 360 and its future
Sakaguchi/Toriyama Blue Dragon will be taking part of the Jump Super Game Tour this year - very exciting stuff as fans of Shonen Jump mangas will see some very cool games
SE/Nintendo's Mario 3 on 3 site open

Impress Game Watch shows off some screenshots of their 2nd Capcom Classics Collection - King of Dragons and Knights of the Round sure brings back memories in the arcades. I remember spending so much quarters to finish the games w/ strangers. KoTR's 3 player arcade cabinet was just sweeet. I actually think i saw King of Dragons at a bowling alley some weeks ago :P. The boxart for this collection is just sweet Capcom greatness as usual.
Famitsu's got some Star Fox Command (DS) shots & info
More Square Enix's 360 Project Sylph (Korean) scans

Now, i was never quite a fan of King since Art of Fighting. When i first played the game, i had thought she was guy when i fought her. It wasn't until the 'ripping' of the clothes that i found out King was a chick. Her artwork for the AoF games weren't too good either. It was the KoF series that made her more applealing to me cuz you HAD to play as her in KoF '94 for Team England if you want the chick team. I started to really play as her in '98 and the Capcom vs. SNK series. Despite being pretty good as her (surprisingly) i never really got into her hardcore. I only play as her in casual matches now. Nevertheless, she's an awesome character to play (venom strike, double strike, trap shot) and hawt tomboy + 'oneechan'. King & Ryo forever ^^.
