Hirokazu Soul Calibur IV

OH YEAH!!! Design is okay nothing great or special. Definitely giving me Mashiro Child vibes. Anyways, SC IV is gonna be a sweet looking, fanservice heavy, unbalanced, broken and shitty fighting game! ^_^. so sad so sad, well, that's what SC 1 and even SC 2 is for (maybe even SE).

They will be mine, oh yesh, they will be mine

First up, it's Canada Day. So Happy Canada Day to all the Canadians out there. The My-ZHiME site made an update today w/ a preview of vol.2. So can't wait. the My-ZHiME S.ifr site made some update w/ new pics. Also it seems that the so called 'new project' isn't an anime but a novel. I'm kinda down but pleased all the same as a novel saves me much more money than an anime series.

Speaking of novels it seems that the release date for the 舞-HiME★DESTINY ~龍の巫女~ vol.2 is August 1st. So yeah, I'll be getting my hands on that of course. However, I AM debating on whether I should combine it w/ my My-ZHiME S.ifr #2 order. Lastly, the site also revealed some figures of Rena from S.ifr. Since I'm so not up to date on figure news, this is new to me. The 9800 yen figure is of no interest to me (meh looks and retarded price), however, I'm really contemplating about getting the Rena swimsuit figure. If I do, it'd be my first figure in 2 years. I guess the deciding factor will be the finished quality and price. Really would want the mail in order DX version as it comes with a Hisayuki telephone card. Oh well, we'll see.

Oh yesh! Summer 2008 is here, time to shed some skin

How's it going all? nothing happening too much, sort of a long weekend (depending where you work and your company policies) going on as Canada Day is on Tuesday. Preparations are going smoothly if anybody's wondering. Haven't made any big purchases in the otaku world. I DID buy MGS 4 LE and anybody who is a fan needs to play/watch it :P. July's gonna be good as My Otome S.ifr vol.2 finally comes out. I totally can't wait! I already can't wait for vol.3 as that's been pre-ordered a month ago. Release date is for Nov.21 if anybody didn't know. I may or may not have a huge 'stuff' pic in July. We'll see, it depends on if I have the extra dough. So yeah, enjoy the yummy pics (mostly from latest issue of megami). The selections are obviously the shows I dig/dug and will dig.

Breast of the Breasts

was too lazy to clean up the scan


Somewhat of a busty post to end the month. Things have been settling down with me. The big day has been set for middle of August. So I can rest a bit easy until then. Anyways, just wanted to show a pic of some shit I got a couple of weeks ago that I mentioned about. Mangas are somewhat 'new' since they're HK editions and not JPN tanks (which come out a month before HK volumes), except for TenTen. HK TenTen comes out 2-4 months after JPN releases.

It's the usual stuff that I've been collecting Bleach HTS 5 + Blanket (PSP), Bleach 32 (HK), Naruto 41 (HK) and Tenjo Tenge 18 (HK).
Only thing that's out of my usual stuff is Dragon Fly vol.1 by Shigeki Maeshima. It's essentially a compilation of the Dragonfly comics in Range Murata's Robot series. So, the paper quality is nice, the art is large and coloured. Sweet deal IMO. I only bought Robot vol.1, so it was nice to see where the story was heading. Actually, I have no idea where the story is heading cuz there's so many characters and it jumps from different time periods to time periods in a weird order :P. Definitely recommend it for the art as Maeshima is awesome. Looking forward to the 5 Killers. Da 'Bomb'!

Yeah, the overwhelming boobs in this post might be kinda off-putting, but then my blog has always centered around that. Summer shows I'm excited for (but probably won't follow) Ikkitousen Great Guardians (preordered Eloquent Fist sad) and Sekirei. This isn't too much of a surprise I guess as I've been a longtime fan of both series in manga form. Oh yesh Tsukiumi oh yesh...can't wait for your turn in Megami.

I wanna check out Blade of the Immortal too, having read that years ago. Speaking of new anime, saw this this morning when the HiME site updated. A new "My/Mai" series?....oh wallet...^^

Think it's called Mao/My-ou according to my crappy University JPN skills

As for games, aside from the recently acquired HTS5, haven't been playing much. Got back in to 3S and just started Mugen no Frontier SRT OG Saga a couple of days ago. Also, finally continuing Ar Tonelico 2 that I stopped back in Oct/Nov.

Haven't picked up a a next gen console yet as I've been planning financially for the future, but I'm sure I'll pick up a PS3 soon as MGS4 comes out next month and I want to get a bundle w/ DS3 instead of a system w/ the 6Axis.

So yeah, guess you're caught up on what little is remaining of my so-called geeky otaku life. Peace.

P.S. Since y'all know I'm a huge Sano Toshihide and Happoubi Jin fan, HCGs for Majodou and Kanojo x Kanojo x Kanojo are awesome as expected. Go get'em ;)

mmm...more bouncy

Being that it's Victoria Day today in Canada (a public holiday), I got a little bit of free time to post. What to post? nothing really. been busy as hell. haven't been following any anime, just been watching movies (ie. Iron Man, Speed Racer and Indy will be next week) whenever I got the time. I should be expecting some things either this week or next week. Nothing big, just usual stuff that I order that shouldn't surprise any. Anyways, just felt like posting some pics ^^. Peace.

Hot Wheels

Nothing much. Got a few items this past week. Not a whole lot worth mentioning about IMO.

Items are Persona 3 Fes US version (can't wait for P4 in a couple of months...OBVIOUSLY), Ryu Final vol.2 (Eng.) and of course Mario Kart Wii. Once I get the online setup for it, add my friend code (when I post it). Hopefully, I'll see you online ;). Peace.

All About ZHiME & Artbooks

Finally, the post I've been wanting to post for more than a month. If you haven't already noticed w/ a couple of my last posts/pics (aside from the My-ZHiME S.ifr post). I got some items before and after Christmas. But most were after Xmas. None were gifts, since I would got more 'practical' stuff this year. Anyways, just some the very late and latest stuff I got, since I don't get too much anime-related stuff each month now. Yup, you know me....artbooks galore!

My-ZHiME Graph Premium (!)
Ryu Final vol.1 (E)
Appleseed EX MACHINA 2D SE (R1)
Kite Liberator (R1)
Purgatory Kabuki vol.1 (E)
Change 123 vol.7 (J)
Black Lagoon vol.7 (HK)
Until Death Do Us Part vol. 6 (J)
Manyuu Hikencho vol.2 (J)
Hiderou Horibe Colors Artbook (!!)
All About Capcom
Art of Gyakuten Saiban
Yoko Portraits Artbook (!!)
Cloud 1 + Special DVD
Uno! Uno Makoto Artworks (!!)
Crisis Core FFVII PSP + Shinra UMD Case

So that's the list. I'll probably post some pics or scans from some of the artbooks in the future just for the hell of it. No promises since I'm a busy man. If anyone wants info on any of the items, lemme know.
Some comments I want to make, Change 123: Absolutely love the cover since Fujiko's always been my fave. Kite Liberator: Pretty meh, didn't like how some things were left unresolved, didn't mind the abrupt ending. CCFF7: I got a lot of other games but only bothered showing CC cuz if one doesn't remember, I got the Japanese version last Sept., not too long after it's release. Finished it in Dec. I probably won't play this till much later. Only reason why I got it is to listen to the Eng. voices and I guess support SE ...again.

Anyways, The biggie and the one I'll go into detail is Otome Graph Premium book. The book is a major disappointment. There's hardly any new work at all. Maybe one or two that I think I haven't seen that are worth a mention. All promo images are various artworks seen from past mags, which is why I didn't take a photo of any spread from the beginning of the book (where most new artworks usually go in these kind of books). Like the previous books (Idol, Scoop, Graph), Premium gives quick details and brief summaries on some of the characters and the Series. In this case, My-ZHiME and My-ZHiME Zwei. There's a little bit on S.ifr for those wondering. Aside from the usual interviews w/ staff and cast, there's some stories and some panels of comics that are quite funny & entertaining. The best thing in Premium is some of the production sketches, most are old and ripped from the DVD booklets and novels (ie. Destiny, since zero non-Japanese fans purchased them....except me :P). There's a neat section detailing on the Meisters and their elements. The pics for that section are from Hisayuki's site & Graph if one has a good memory. Best part of the production sketches is the My★Maid section (For those who didn't know, My★Maid was announced not too long after My-HiME ended, it was the supposed sequel, this name was then changed to what we know now as My-Otome), which shows what some of the characters looked like had they decided to go in this direction. You can see the evolution. Arika's roommates were suppose to be this Sara Gallagher look-alike, Chris/Cris and Shiori (who kinda resembles Shion). The maid outfits/robes had their respective element symbols (ie. Mai's signature flame symbol, Natsuki had an ice symbol). There's also a cool sketch of Mai in a Vega (from Dendoh) style outfit. It's not really Vega but more like a hybrid of Vega and Sara's (Otome) outfit.

So in the end, Premium is probably the crappiest of the four as you don't get much new and exclusive artwork for you buck. Being the greatest HiME, ZHiME and Hisayuki fan, I took the plunge for you other fans. Latz.
