Arashi no Yoru ni

May 21, 2008 by

This is really a very nice anime to watch, funny and touching. It is about how a goat and a wolf become the best of friends. The conversations are relatively easy to understand too. And I especially love the theme song (star) sany by Aiko. you must listen to it.

Yo everybody, just discovered a few websites that are really “informational” and “motivational” to those who are struggling with the japanese language.

This vid shows a man, probably a seiyu, acting voices for different characters in Chibi Maruko. This one-man show is TOTALLY COOL!

Code Geass R2- 01

April 11, 2008 by

The show starts in a year after Zero defeat and Zero is suppose to be dead. So, C.C is taking comment of the only member of Shisei ken and a few of the people left.

Back in school, Lelouch is chased by his teacher for skipping P.E lesson. He got into the chemistry lab and create a colour fog as a smoke screen and later used Rivalz as a substitute to escape.

After that, his brother, Rollo asked him if he is going collage. Lelouch answered by saying that he is tired of studying. He added on that if he is going to join the work forces, there would be noble up there controlling everything. Unknown to Lelouch, he is watched by a Britannia’s Secret Intelligence Agency.

He arrived at the tower babel with a chess set to challenge other people. He told Rollo that it is to look for greater challenge but actually, it is just to kill time. At the same time, Carares was set out to meet the Chinese Federation.

Inside, he bumped into a bunny-dressed kallen who accidently spill drinks over Lelouch. She apologized straight away and explain that she do that because she is an eleven and she did not had any power. Then, a gambler, King appeared and grabbed her by the hair to see her face. Lelouch then challenge him to a chess match and wins which then, King then accused of Lelouch of cheating.

When King’s man had held Lelouch down, an explosion had occurred. Kallen then uses the chance to kick king’s face and take care of his man. Then, in the confusion, she pull Lelouch away. Britannia’s Secret Intelligence Agency also starts their operation.

C.C appeared infront of Lelouch and claimed to be his ally and Lulouch’s enemy is Britannia. She said that they had made a contract and this cause Lulouch to walk towards her. When he got close to her, she got shot in the heart and starts following. Lulouch manages to catch her and was confused when one of the cockpit of the robot open and the leader of the intelligence appeared.

He review that Lelouch is the bait to lure out the remaining forces of the order and to lure out C.C. The man feels that he did not need to tell Lelouch anything more and tried to kill him. To everyone’s surprised, C.C got up and kissed Lulouch. This cause him to got the flash back from last time and his attitude and geass power, the power of king, back.

With his power back, he asked the man question, is power justice. If being powerless is a sin. And taking revenge is a sin. The man said that there is only death awaits a bait and in the end, Lelouch commanded them to die.

My comment: A wonderful episode. However, it started like season 1 that C.C got shot and the power of geass was given to Lelouch.

To Love Ru- 01

April 7, 2008 by

At first, LaLa was chase by her own people. At the start, it make it like some Sci-fi movie. Not a bad effect. Kinda like it.


The girl there is the one that our main lead like. He tried to confess to her at many times but…

….never got the letter to her.

The reason Rito like Haruna is because when everyone though that he is the one who destroy the bed of flower, Haruna choose to believe him.

So when he reached home, he took a bath and LaLa appear in the bathtub. Rito was shock and shouted out. His litter sister, MIkan heard his voice and rush to him, which he explained that there’s a naked women in the bath tub.

She then appear in his room explain that it was by chance that she appear in his bathtub. Because the bracelet she used chooses a random place to warp to. Then another invention appear which she used to create clothes. But when she transform, its like some hentai show. LOL.

In the end, the people who were chasing Lala appeared and told her not to run away from home anymore. She disagree and send out octopus vacuum cleaner and suck them all away, including Rito.

The next day, Rito who was going to school, met Haruna on the way. He tried to confess to her but Lala step infront of Haruna and Lala thought that Rito was confessing to her. She then suggest to get married with Rito.

~End~

My comment: Quite a funny episode. Not as much fan service as i expected it to have. Had slightly differ from manga which is good because I don’t want to see something that i had seen before. At least the show explained why Rito likes Haruna. Good start but think from now onwards there will be more and more of fans service. Gee, Fan service spoils shows.

Alice Nine on the Cover (Part II)

April 2, 2008 by

At Kinokuniya Orchard yesterday, I can’t seem to find Arena 37C Special and Shoxx anywhere.  Given that Arena 37C issue 4 was only shipped in yesterday and Shoxx was just released on last Saturday (29 March), this tells me that they are not shipped in yet by Kinokuniya-singapore. In other words, for those who missed Neo Genesis which was already shipped in last week, no worry. there’re still Arena 37C Special and Shoxx.

Guess I’m the lucky one cos I think I bought the last Neo Genesis remaining at Kinokuniya Orchard ^_^ However, it’s rather expensive..BUT..I think it’s worth it. So, hereby, I wish good luck to those who’s still waiting to buy Arena 37C Special or Shoxx or both.

Alice Nine on the Cover

March 30, 2008 by

Good news for Singapore Alice Nine fans out there! Following the release of ‘Mirror Ball’ single, Alice Nine is appearing on the front covers of Japanese magazines, Neo Genesis, Arena 37C special, as well as Shoxx in April and May.


Source of Pictures: http://www.ongakusenkasha.co.jp/; http://neo-genesis.jp/

If I’m not wrong and not too late, these issues have not been shipped in by Kinokuniya-singapore yet. So, for those who’s intending to buy the magazines, stay watch at Kinokuniya-singapore website. I would too go into the website regularly. But, for me, I would prefer to buy Neo Genesis instead cos I think they look better on the Neo Genesis’s cover.

True Tears-13(End)

March 30, 2008 by

They really had done a twist here. I wasn’t expect this to come along especially what had been shown in episode 12.

Jun telling Hiromi at the Shine that she is right.  The one he likes is not her.  Back in school, Shin is surrounded by schoolmates who watch the dance. They said that he looks cool. Miyakuchi tease him by saying he is the hero now.

Everytime Hiromi is troubled, she sure train her basketball skills. In the mean time, she thinks about her relationships with Shin. In the end, she went to his house and confessed to him. However, she say that she would accept any decision Shin made. She is a sportman afterall.

Shin went out and visit Noe for the sake of showing her the picture book. However, she did not wants to see it. So Shin said that he would throw the paper away at the beach where Jibeta choose to fly. In the end, Noe showed up at the beach, picking up the thrown away paper planes. She looks at the picture book at a shelter near the beach. Ending page is missing but she said that she could guessed the ending.

In the end, Shin had chosen Hiromi.

Not to miss out Miyakuchi had patched up with Aiko.

So, Noe ends up with the chicken.

Comment: As I had mention in the beginning. I didn’t see this coming. Especially what they had shown in episode 12. I though this was going be a Noe ending. Turns out to be a Hiromi ending. All the while, I did not see Noe cry. Did she got back her tears?

Another anime had ended. Luckily, Spring Anime 2008 still had some good show to spare. The ones I look forward to watching is To love ru. Hopefully is not another fan service anime.

Suzumiya Haruki no Seitenkan

March 30, 2008 by

Suzumiya Haruki no Seitenkan or known as the sex change of Suzumiya Haruhi. In the event of this fan novel, Haruhi had become Haruki and Kyon had become Kyonko. The rest of the character had also gone through sex change. It is mostly a fan work that modify Suzumiya Haruhi no Yuutsu.

Somehow, Kyonko is so Moe. Well, fans created her to be like a Tsudere character. I prefer this version of Suzumya Haruhi……for the time being. Fanfic and fan work BANZAI
