Okay so it’s not the Persona 4 Area version but it might as well be. In tradition with collecting the Persona Figma line i finally get a hold of Yukiko Amagi and to be honest she wasn’t one of my favorite characters in the games or anime but none the less i had to get her Figma version.

One comes, Ssssslinding in.

To update my Bakemonogatari figma collection comes Nadeko Sengoku. So far of all the figmas to have come out Nadeko comes with some of the best accessories like 2 jackets and a hat that can fit on other figmas but one of the best features about Nadeko is her appearance. You can pose Nadeko in a good various of ways and still look very cute, there are only a few figmas that has ever pulled this off. Apart of her accessories comes some straight arms and 2 locked hands for even more poses that you play with. (Read more…)

Skinning a PS3

If it’s one thing about our consuls here in America is that we never get some of the cool theme’d based ones like Japan gets, but a company called “Dezaegg/Dezaskin” has made it possible to customize your PS3 with skins. The material is a vinyl type sticker that applies easily to your (Read more…)

Shadonia Magazine Vol.2

Awhile back on figure.fm i saw a post talking about anyone who knew or had Itasha cars and for those who know me i have a very mild one. And those of you who are wondering about what “Itasha” is, it literally means “Paintmobile”

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Itasha

There’s a very large community behind this in Japan and does conventions every year to show off there cars like this

I had a chance to talk to Charline from a French Anime Magazine called Shadona. Shadona brings you the latest news and reviews about Anime and Anime Figures plus the industry behind it all, so if your wondering what this is all about check it out. Just yesterday there new issue of Shadona Magazine Vol. 2 came out and an article was done about the Itahsa cars with some of the pictures i submitted of my car with a quick interview.  Now when i was asked about this i thought it was just going to be something with a few people and get to see others Itasha cars, but no it was just of mine. This was a very cool thing and threw me way off guard. So i like to thank Shadonia Magazine, Charline, and everyone on staff at Shadonia Magazine. Also if you like to see this as well follow this link to the website and check out there work. Oh yea i should also mention, it will be in French so use a internet translator if you can.

If your a fighting game fan then i’m sure you’ve come across Tekken. Now they have released a movie based in the Tekken universe. For some of  you who know of or like this franchise there are some elements might confuse you so here’s the plot!

The story takes place from the games Tekken 5 and 6 where Anna sets up a ambush on Nina who is currently working with the new head of the Mishima Zaibatsu, Jin Kazuma. Anna on the other hand, works for Jin’s father the  rival organization, G Corporation. Both are seeking information about a student named Shin Kamiya, and Anna dispatches Ling  Xiaoyu to act as a spy, while Jin sends humanoid robot Alisa Bosconovitch for a similar purpose. I’m not going to get any further into the story since from here it really opens up and get kinda good. The movie is done in complete 3D from the Tekken 6 game engine and also features a 3D view mode for all of you who might have a 3D Blu-ray player and 3D TV.

If you just read this and haven’t got this yet it gets better! This comes as a package called Tekken Hybrid. It’s a Blu-ray bundle with Tekken Tag HD and Tekken Tag 2 Prologue. Both games are downloads to your PS3 HD and can play it from there but getting a sneak peak at Tekken Tag 2 is a sweet deal.  There are Trophies you can get from both Tekken Tag and Tag 2 so you don’t get to bored playing a 10 year old game over and over. The updated graphics on Tekken Tag are very nice but you can still see the old character models so its more like a blast from the past for me. Playing Tekken Tag 2 you are only given 4 characters, Devil Kazuma, Devil Jin, Alisa and Xiaoyu. Unlike it’s old version there are more tag moves you can use for the characters and more combinations and variations for tagging, it’s sad that i couldn’t get to really play more into it since your only able to play up to 4-5 stages. If your a Tekken fan or just wanna get it for the movie both are worth it.

Boku wa Tomodachi ga Sukunai Review

It’s time for the fall season releases of anime, and i feel that i should mention, Boku wa Tomodachi ga Sukunai or known as I Don’t Have Many Friends. I picked this one up on a whim since it sounded funny, and that’s what i got and a bit more. At 1st starts with a highschool boy named Hasegawa Kodaka who unfortunately for him looks like a delinquent. Mainly due to his hair and just the way he looks, but really is a nice guy just looking to meet friends. So as you would think one thing leads to another and misunderstandings keep getting worse till one day he meets a girl by the name of Yozora Mikazuki. This event leads them into forming a new club called, The Neighbor’s Club. This was formed for the soul purpose of making friends and gaining social skills.

Yea i know it sounds kinda “meh” but i’ve come to laugh at this one. I find it to be a nice comedy, romance anime genre. So this show i would at least give it a shot.  Also if you want more info about it check out ANN.

Black Rock Shooter the Game PSP Review.

I just got BRStG yesterday and had a chance to charge my PSP and play it for a few hours to get a feel for the game. And i like it, it’s only hard since i can’t read any of the letters… After going back to my PSP after… well it’s been awhile since i last played it and for a PSP game it’s very nice looking. The battle system is easy to use even when you can’t read the menu or anything really… Game play is also smooth and very clean, plus the intro was done very well.

I’ve only put in like 2-3 hours into and got 2 of the power ups so far but i’m loving this game for what it is. America don’t look sad when it seems like i’m the only having fun with this game, NIS America as announced that Black Rock Shooter the Game will be coming to America, though that TBA. From what i know if NIS and how they work there games, if they don’t try and do a dubbing for it (i hope they don’t) we can see it out by the end of the year, but if they do try to dub it then maybe by summer maybe even by the 3rd quart of next year. (maybe just before the end of the word happends too).

I ended up getting the White Premium Box that comes with White Rock Shooter Figma as well.   And this box was BIG! I’ve got other figures with games out of japan but this one has to be the biggest one i’ve got mainly due to those wings…

But as for her, she’s very nice. Some down sides are that she’s not that poseable compared to other figmas and seems like some parts of her are loose. After talking with others who have got her as well, they all tell me similar problems that i’m having. So if you who are reading this happen to get BRStG with WRS let me know if you have the same problem about joins being lose or parts coming off easy.

This game is fun and i cant’ wait to see it in America since then i can play it again and understand it.

Carnival Phantasm OVA


 

 

 



 

 

 

 

So if there’s one anime group i like that’s TYPE-MOON. They’ve done animes like Tsukihime, Fate/Stay Night, Kara no Kyoukai, and games like Melty Blood, Mahotsukai no Yoru, and Girls Work. Now they put out something completely different. TYPE-MOON isn’t known for putting anything really humorist out, but more on the getting into your head, very visual, and even very gory. But this time it’s just random, and mostly a retelling of the shows as crossovers.

So as it sits now it’s going to be a 4 eps a season thats about 13-15 mins per show. And so far it’s great, if you ever saw any of these shows in the past and like the funny, check this out. And if you know how animes are, there is always a beach/bath house/bikini episode.  With a kinda catchy intro this show looks to be very promising and something for all fans to enjoy. You can also check out these other links to and see for yourself in what i mean by the funny!

There will be up to 3 seasons, the next one well be released in October and then the 3rd in December.  And from what i’ve read, the 3rd season will be coming with Melty Blood Actress Again Current Code that’s the newest of the series.
