C-Shells...for Ariel

Well, the above mermaid chick goes accordingly to my recent purchases this week which include the obvious, The Little Mermaid SE Platinum Edition (oh, Ariel, how you made me think the wrong things back then XD); Street Fighter Legends Issue #2B (i'm going only for the Alvin Lee covers now) which came out today; Warriors Two (a classic that i've been holding back on featuring Casanova Wong and Sammo Hung); Dragon Ball Z Movie 13 and GitS SAC 2nd GIG vol.7 SE (i'm actually not done collecting GitS 2nd GIG cuz i don't have vol. 6, as i combined w/ Kirameki Project 1&2 at the time, which has been delayed from Summer to October & November :P)

since i already started w/ the great Takada-san's artwork, mind as well add some more as well as a mizugi one (though the mermaid one is sort of mizugi). Anbody else love her artwork?

yeah, the 2nd GIG box is sweet, much better than S1's pretty meh and boring laughing man pic. I sorta wish we got all the covers from the R2 or got them in some form.

You getting Bleach: BB then? It's a typical Famitsu anime game score but it looks pretty cool.
I've had it preordered for a while and am looking forward to it.

Oh yeah, you familiar with Captain Tsubasa much? It's an anime/manga I've always wanted to check out but never really have. Anyway there's the upcoming PS2 game which I'm tempted to get...

i'm not getting it right away as i'm still in the middle of exams and essays. my buddy is getting it first, so i'll probably play it for a bit. i'm planning to get it sometime in oct. school is taking up too much of my time (though i have been able to put in some time for some sparking neo action ^^).

as for captain tsubasa, i'm sorta familar w/ the show. i remember watching some episodes of the original tv series as a kid but i don't remeber the content. I also own the entire Shin Captain Tsubasa series on VCD. It's pretty good, and i love the OP/ED from SCT. A very good soccer anime IMO, but since it's old expect a lot of recyled animation. I haven't seen any of the CT stuff beyond the 90s so i don't know it got better or worse. i heard the 2k2 series is essentially a remake of the 3 tv series (how fitting for WC that year :P ^^), so hopefully the animation does the series justice. Yeah, i'm only tempted to get the PS2 game for Suzuoki Hirotaka. As it was his last work before he passed away ;_;. Voiced some of my fave charas from fave shows (ie. Tenshinhan from DB/DBZ, Saito from Kenshin, Kuno from Ranma etc.).
