The 30th Anniversary of Gundam

This may be old news to some and I known about this as well for a while. But I think that it’s still worth sharing.

Anyways, as some may know and for those who don’t, a while back the Gundam 30 year Anniversary website announced a life size Gundam robot about 59 feet tall to be build in “Shiokaze Park on Odaiba island” located Tokyo, Japan. This had been annouced back in March and was finished in June of this year. This life size statue is based off of “RX-78-2 Gundam” from the first Gundam anime series from 1979 (the year I was born XD).

In my opinion I think this is pretty cool consider I’ve only watched one of the series and much enjoyed it. I guess I’m a big mecha themed anime fan XD. Anyways I kind of figured that it wouldn’t be that long before there would be a life size mecha built before too long. Although, there were other large size mecha status built before, but nothing as tall as the “RX-78-2 Gundam”

Well Massively update for the My Massive absence

So I haven’t posted anything here for a good while. And I’m sorry about that although, its not like a lot of people actually sit and read it. But anyways, I’ve been quite busy with job hunting and working contracted IT/Computer jobs. I’ve also been working on an anime/manga website that I’m hoping to have online sometime soon. This site will have a forums, downloads section, and blog like news posting and such. My site will be basically a CMS (Content Managment System) website. As I’m still doing a lot of the configuration with the site and database. I’m not ready to put it up online yet. Plus I’m still working on getting the funds to pay for 5 months of web hosting (currently looking at different hosting services)XD. So with this said I’m not sure if I will keep this blog up since I will be posting most o my posts there. But I might just keep this one running and double post news items on both. I will probably keep this blog running though, but I think I will need to give it make over. I will probably just design a new layout from scratch.

Other updates I finished watching all the animes in that I had posted it my last post back in February; Soul Eater, Witchblade, REC, Hell Girl, Code Geass R2. Well actually I haven’t finished watch Bleach just yet as it is still on-going. But in fact I actually finished quite a few other animes as well, I’ve almost watch 100 different animes, I’ve actaully at about 96 as you can see from this old post which I keep updating Animes I have completed, but once I have 100 on that list I will stop updating it and just create a new post for each 10 after. Some of those animes in that list I really don’t recommend as they are kind of crappy. For example Psychic Wars and MD Geist II: Death Force were not that great, in fact they were garbage. The only reason I sat and watch them was just to say that I have seen them. I will never watch them again though.

Last piece of updates I had beaten God of War for the PS2 for the first time. I beat it on easy, now I working on beating it on the normal difficulty. I’m also very close to beating Resident Evil 4 on the Ps2 as well. I think that I’m currently on Chapter 5-2.

Well that is it for the moment. Thanks for reading

Fullmetal Alchemist OVA collection set to be Released Later this Year

The North American anime distributor Funimation has confirmed at the Ohayocon event on Saturday that it has acquired the Fullmetal Alchemist: Premium Collection original video animation (OVA) set. Funimation will release the set on a single DVD in late 2009. According to Funimation’s Adam Sheehan, the DVD will include “everything that was on the Japanese DVD release — uncut, subbed, and dubbed.”

The Premium Collection’s Japanese release features the “Seven Homunculi VS State Alchemists” short and three DVD shorts that shipped after the 2005 Fullmetal Alchemist movie: “Live Action,” “Chibi Party,” and “Kids.” These shorts were the last animated footage created for the Fullmetal Alchemist “dark fantasy” franchise — at least, until this coming April, when the new television adaptation of Hiromu Arakawa’s original manga premieres. Extras include a picture gallery, bonus clips from the Universal Studios Japan amusement park’s Fullmetal Alchemist Premiere Tour, and closing credits that feature a dancing Alphonse Elric character…….Read More

I think this I pretty cool although these OVA seem kind of short. Anyways, I would probably buy this collection anyways just to have it because I just that way XD. I actually have not see these Fullmetal OVAs yet and may have to check them out. Anyways I thought this was something I would share with anyone read this blog.

My First Anime Boxset

After a long awaited time I finally got my first anime box set. My older sister got it for me for my birthday and just got it at around Christmas time. I got all the episodes of Elfen Lied on two dvd disc. Basically I got the box set known as the “Perfect Collection” with all 13 episodes and some of the art work in the extra section of the DVD menu—I think. I haven’t gone through everything in the menus yet. Below are a few images I have taken of this box set. It nothing really special but I love this series.

(This is the front of the DVD case)

First Post of 2009 (random updates)

Well it’s a new year and sorry for the delayed post. But anyways, I’ve been quite busy and have had record snow fall where I live so my Internet connection hasn’t been too desirable.

First off I had first watching season 2 of Rosario + Vampire Capu2. I really wasn’t too impressed with it as I was with the first season. But i guess it maybe because of the bat/teddy bear censorship. I found it to be a bit distracting. I think I may have to check out the manga as I have heard it has more of a story plot to it unlike the anime.

Other brief updates I have added an affiliates section to my blog. And I have a new affiliate which is my friend’s site called link and web site no longer online where I’m a moderator in the forums there. So if you can just check out this site. Feel free to join in the forums and start talking with other anime fans.

Now if anyone else would like to become an affiliate with this blog. First you site must be anime or manga related in some shape or form. You must add my link to your site in order to affiliate with my blog. I will be creating some banners and button for my blog here soon that you may add. At the moment I will only use your site’s link because I’m actually working on redesigning my blog’s layout from scratch. So until I finish that I’m only going to use links for my affiliates. I will update more on how to affiliate with my site as well as how to contact me if you would like to affiliate with me.

Well that’s it for the updates. I hope you all had a great New Year and Christmas to those that celebrate them.

Anime retail websites get sued for selling Bootleg Anime Dvds

Originally posted on Anime News Network..

The North American anime distributor FUNimation Productions is suing a group of related companies in Southern California for allegedly selling counterfeit DVDs of its licensed anime on a website. FUNimation is alleging that a California resident named Hae Yong Ro and four affiliated businesses — N Trading, Inc, Discount Anime DVD, BuyDVD.com, and DOES — infringed on FUNimation and its licensers’ copyrights and trademarks by selling unauthorized copies of Fruits Basket, Dragon Ball, Dragon Ball Z, Dragonball GT, and Fullmetal Alchemist. Some of the DVDs are said to have included English dubbing. Read Full article here

Anyways, I found this article to be interesting because it was posted on my birthday and one of the sites was were one of my birthday presents was going to come from. With this said I had to look around and research a bit more to find legitimate anime product retails sites. LOL good thing I didn’t purchase anything from the DiscountAnimeDVD.com site like I was originally planning. I guess to say the it can be quite hard to trust some web site retail stores these days. Especially if you like collecting anime dvd and such.

BTW, I Originally submitted this post to the Otaku tidbit on generationotaku.net.

But anyways I thought this would be something to share with you all.

New Month New Post XD

Well now it’s a new month. So I hope that you all had a Happy Halloween and stuff. It seems I still slacking off on some anime reviews, hopeful I get one or two done this month. I’ve just been kind of busy. Anyways, well I had a pretty good birthday, had some Korean food for my b-day dinner, mmmmm good. Now I’m waiting to see if I will get my Elfen Lied box set that I had asked for. This will be my first box set. Nothing too much else going on. I started watching Someday Dreamers, which isn’t too bad so far. I also am giving Soul Eater a look as well. I’m still watching Bleach, frist season of Code Geass and Moribito, slowly but surely. I finish the second season of Zero no Tsukaima and started the third season. There are a few other animes I have watched from DVD rented from Blockbuster Total access. But I don’t like the selection of anime blockbuster has. Anyways, that’s about it for the moment. Thanks for reading. 😀

Ergo Proxy AMV

This is my first attempt at a AMV (anime music video). I made this video with Nero Vision. I used the second episode for this video, I believe towards the end of the episode. The music that I had used was one of my tracks called “The Golden Rules”. Anyways let me know what you think.

Ergo Proxy vs.Mr.Ruste’s The Golden Rules AMV

I was basically trying to make a video that synchronized like this following Eureka Seven video to the Lord Of Trance track by Dj Tiesto
Due to Copyright grounds both of the above videos are blocked. The one I made is blacked in most countries though I’m not sure which countries either. I will at least try and get my video fixed. The other one I have no control over as I didn’t make it.

Just some brief updates v.1.5 (October’s updates)

There is too much going on lately. I’ve just been busy and such, actually haven’t had the time to really watch anime everyday like I normally do. But still make sure that I feed my anime needs, lol. Anyways, I’m still a little irritated with the Saturday lineup on [adult swim], but it fine I guess because I’ll just record Code Geass and Moribito so I don’t miss anymore episodes. But I still have to figure which episodes I have already missed due this schedule chance.

Other updates, I’m just about finished watching Ergo Proxy, I think I watched up to episode 21. I have also started watching Hell Girl which is being shown on the IFC channel (Independent Films Channel). I like watching anime on that channel because it not edit like it is on adult swim or the Sci-Fi channel. I would actually like to see more anime on IFC in the future.

Last piece of this update is that my birthday is coming up on the 28th of October. So I hope that I get something good for my birthday present. I would like to get a box set of Elfen Lied or another series. Or even something along that lines of music production hardware/software since I compose/produce electronic music with my computer.

Well that’s it for now.

Oh BTW I should have my review of Twilight of the Dark Master up here in a couple days and possible I will add more to my reviews of Elfen Lied and True Tears.

Thanks for reading.

Rosario + Vampire season 2 is now out

I think I maybe have forgot to post a bit earlier in the year about the announcement for the second season of Rosario + Vampire that was to be released in October. My bad for slacking off. Well anyways it is now October and just in time for the second season of Rosario + Vampire. I have been waiting for this for a while since I have finished the first season which I had much enjoyed. I think next be on my list is to check out the manga.

Anyways, if you haven’t seen the first you should check it out before you watch this one. I actually haven’t had a chance to check it out, but according to Anime News Network there are already 2 episodes out. The first episode was released on the first of October. Second episode was released on the eighth of October. The third episode titled Mother + Vampire (Haha to Vampaire) will be released on the 15th of October. But I would just like to note the these releases are only in Japan.

In further news it was noted that two Japanese TV stations that had aired the first episode of Rosario + Vampire Capu2 had censored some of the scenes while two other stations left the show air as is. The two stations that censored the scenes were TV Osaka and TV Aichi. Source Anime News Network

If you would like to check out a trailer for the second season here is a youtube clip.

Angered with Adult Swim’s Saturday Schedule Change {part 1}

well I must say that as of the recent Saturday I noticed that I didn’t get to watch the next episodes of Code Geass and Moribito. *kicks some rocks* At first I though this was just temporary schedule and since I don’t log in to the adult swim forums as much because I’ve been really busy. But anyways, I just found out on some sites on the Internet the adult swim pulled the crap of moving Moribito and Code Geass to the 5:00AM-5:30AM slots. And since I’m usually not up at this time to watch them I have to miss them. It’s bad enough that anime isn’t shown as much on [as], but can deal with that because I have other animes I watch that there is no way in hell adult swim would even play them. But Saturday’s action (anime) show is what I always looked forward to even though the shows are English dubbed—I prefer English subs with Japanese audio.

Anyways, here is adult swim’s new Saturday schedule

11:00/2:00-Bleach

11:30/2:30-Fullmetal Alchemist
12:00/3:00-Robot Chicken

12:15/3:15-Aqua Teen Hunger Force

12:30/3:30-Metalocalypse

12:45/3:35-Metalocalypse

1:00/4:00-Tim and Eric Awesome Show, Great Job

1:15/4:15-Assy McGee

1:30/4:30-Squidbillies

1:45/ 4:45-12oz Mouse

5:00-Code Geass

5:30- Moribito

Anyways, I will post more about this later. Here is the discussion in the adult swim forums: New Saturday Schedule Discussion

Well it seem that I’m a little bit excited that Moribito is going to be airing on adult swim coming up on August 24 the only day that adult swim seems to have animes showing anymore. This is according to a news posting on anime news network. Anyways I haven’t heard too much about this series but from what I have heard its pretty good so I will be looking forward to watching the first episode.

Here is a trailer for the series:

Again with the Updates v.1.4

Well what heck again with the update post here. What is my problem LOL. Well anyways there isn’t to much new lately. I just started watching Zero No Tsukaima. I’m on the third episode. So far I have enjoyed the first two episodes so I’m going to continue watch the rest of this first season. I will post more about that a bit later.

Again I slack off, I haven’t gotten any further in the School Rumble manga so I can’t really talk about that.

So what should I talk about. Maybe some cute anime girlies dancing around with dangerous sharp objects. LOL Well maybe another time 😀

I guess I could say that I tried watching Twilight of the Dark Master again last night so I could write a review for this blog. But I started to fall asleep in front of my TV while I was watching it. I guess I will have to try this again either tonight or tomorrow. I guess that say a review for Twilight of the Dark Master is coming up here sometime soon.

So what do you all want me to talk about???

Thank you guys for reading as it what keep this site going.

More Updates and Random Stuff. v. 1.3

Well I just finished watching Le Chevalier d’Eon and I must say that I really enjoyed this series. The ending is quite surprising. But I’m not going to spoil it for you all. Look for the review for it here in the near future. But all I’m going to say for the moment is that Le Chevalier d’Eon’s story is quite different compared to most other animes that fall under this type of anime genre. I’m also just about finished watching Rosario + Vampire I think I’m up to episode 10.

Finally I just started reading the School Rumble manga. This is that first time in a long while that I have attempt to start read a manga. But I’m also slowly but sure reading the Bleach manga but not as focused on it.

Ok here is a video for you all

Updates (I’m such a Slacker..XD)

Well everyone, I’ve been pretty much slacking off on this blog since the day of its creation. But I will try as much as possible to make at least three posts a month, hopeful more. Well, nothing is too much new, still in the search for a job.

So I had posted a anime review a little bit back for True Tears (TV), hope you all give it a read. I have decided to add to my reviews I post at a later date just to give it more of a detailed review. But I still haven’t decided on the format I would like to follow.

Plus I have been somewhat working on some kind of script implementation that I would like to use in my blog to hide spoilers that I may post here from time to time. I still trying to figure it out though. But I hope that I could implement this sometime soon.

Also I ‘m also planning on making a few post about mangas and what not. But I really haven’t read as many mangas and much as I have watched anime. So my manga post will probably be few, as least until I start reading more and what not.

well thanks for reading.. XD

True Tears (TV) review

True Tears (TV) review

Anime: True Tears

Japanese Title: True Tears

Number of Episodes: 13

Episodes Watched: 13

Genre: Drama, Comedy, Romance, School-life, Harem

Age Rating: Teen 13+

Brief Plot Information:

“Shinichiro is a student living in what would be a dream come true for most high school boys, but for him is mostly a frustration. A well liked girl in school named Hiromi has lived in his house for a year along with his family. Her father was a close friend of the family, and when he died they immediately took her in. She is popular and well liked, always smiles, is talented in sports- but Shinichiro knows there must be tears inside her. Having an artistic tendency, he makes watercolours of her and thinks about wishing to ease her tears. Yet he cannot bring up the nerve to talk to her even in his own home. She, too, is quiet and withdrawn in their house, quite unlike at school. Shinichiro is also distracted by teasing from his friend Nobuse for watching Hiromi from afar, a curse of bad luck from a strange girl named Noe, and being forced to perform Muhiga dancing. By helping Noe he hopes to ease his own problems, yet he seems to have difficulty helping himself.” Source: Anime News Network

The Likes of this anime:

I had found this anime to be quite enjoyable as with most animes of this type of genre. The animation was great and I felt that the attention to detail was really well done. Throughout each episode there was a good amount of every type of feeling. What I mean by this is that the emotions the characters were feeling I would start to feel their emotions. In fact a couple times I almost wanted to cry. Another thing I like and enjoyed with this anime is that I felt the entire story flowed from one episode to the next. Sometimes (just like other enjoyable animes) I would get irritated or impatient after an episode because of the fact that the episode would end right in the middle of a really good part. Then I would have to wait to watch the next episode.

The dislikes of this anime:

I must say that there really isn’t too much that I didn’t likes about this anime. There may have been a few parts that I found to be irritating but that really doesn’t mean I disliked them. In actuality I felt that the anime ended too soon, at least in my opinion. I think that there could have been a bit more to the ending that how it ended in episode 13. But I won’t good in to detail on that just because I think you should watch this series and see for yourselves.

My Rating: 99/100

I will probably post an additional review for this anime in the near future with a bit more. For example I think will add different categories pertaining to my rating in graphics/animation, story, fun factor, and originality. But this may differ, because I really haven’t decided yet on how to go about it.

Episode 1 First impressions -> Moribito

Well I had watched the first episode that aired on adult swim. I must say that this seems like its going to be a good anime. The animation and story line is catching which is what I like about most with most of the adventure types of animes that I watch. At first it had seem to start out kind of slow but then it started to get interesting. Anyways, I think I my just continue follow this series and watch it every Saturday on adult swim just as I have been following Bleach and Code Geass.
I will post more later after I get further into the series.

In my opinion I though this was a quite good anime, the overall story, the art/graphic work and the characters. The overall story flowed from one episode to the next and the character development slowly developed through each episode. I guess this is why I got stuck watching the all of the episodes because I wanted to know what would happen next. The character, well actually characters I liked the most was the Lucy/Nyu split personality. Lucy seemed to have a bit of a dark side until towards the end

[Spoiler Warning]

when her feelings towards Kota started to come out as he realized that she was the one who had killed his father and sister

[Spoiler Ended]

The Nyu side was kind of cute in her ways though she could really speak any basic words except “Nyu” but you can usually tell what she means or how she felt when she spoke “Nyu”.

[Spoiler Warning]

Towards the last couple of episode Nyu started to speak a few words to Kota or when she would call out Kota’s name

[Spoiler Ended]

The Dislikes of this anime:

To tell you the truth, I really don’t have any dislikes of this anime. It was a very enjoyable anime to watch and I would recommend this to anyone.

The only thing I really didn’t like was how the series had ended in episode 13 and I kind of wish there was a 2nd season or something. Even the OVA didn’t help with the ending, just a little addition to some of the episodes towards the end of the series.

My Rating: 99/100 (99 because of the way the series had ended.)

I will probably post a further review of this anime in the near future.
