For those of you who have not kept up with the fighting genre, you would be forgiven for having no clue what Blazblue is. It was created by Arc System of the famed Guilty Gear series and released last month for PS3 and 360. It has gotten nearly all positive reviews and I have yet to come across a bad one and after playing it about a week I can see why. So this is my overview/review of it.

Well it seems it has been a long time since my last post. A few days ago I thought I should get off my bum and write something and as I said way back when, my next post would be about the super cute show Ichgo Mashimaro Encore OVA 2 and so it is. On a slightly more personal note it seems i’m kinda losing my interest in anime. Mabye it’s just i’m not following more than 2 shows, 1 of which finishes this week. I’ll miss you K-ON!. So in an attempt This one has a few stories packed into it like all the episodes and if you have read the manga, then you should be able to remember where they all came from. This isn’t so much a review like I normaly do but rather just a gallery from the episode and my random thoughts on it.
Straight away the title screen for the new OVAs shows something rather… odd.
<matsuri no pantsu>
Notice anything? Yeah thats right, Matsuri has no pants on. Who decided that this was a good idea? I don’t want to see her pantsu. In fact I never want to see her pantsu as she is just too damn cute.
<matsuri knocking over juice>
Nothing special here but it is a set up for the next joke
<miu grabbing tissue>
<miu blowing nose>
Ok so it may not seem very funny through pictures but it made me laugh in the show.
<miu short performance>
<tissues up the nose>
Miu is so bloody random at times how can you not enjoy her antics?
<pics of miu copying chika>
Miu copying chika until she is able to get a photo of her.
While discussing what makes people best friends, Miu proclaims to of felt Chika’s boobs and then proceeds to tell her of the fact they could be lesbians. This is even in the book too surprisingly. Yes I doubt she called them “tits” but you get the idea here.
<miu lesbian things>
Nobue being the “boss” seems rather fitting really. She is boss.
<nobue boss>
During Miu’s impersonations of the other girls, she runs over to Nobue to hug her only to be dodged and lands face first on the bed. Here it is we see another pantsu shot. I must say though I would of expected Miu to wear some type of wierd looking undies. I mean not that i’ve thought of it or anything… *cough*… anyway
<pantsu shot of miu on bed>
After taking Matsuri’s glasses for her impersonation Miu hands back these which made me laugh
<miu in plastic glasses>
Poor Nobue. The unfortunate truth that Matsuri and Ana will grow up and eventually become teenagers was too much for her to cope with.
<nobue crying>
You could be forgiven for thinking Miu has just been the victim of a vicious sexual assault but after the girls dressing up in junior high school uniforms, and listening to Miu make fun of them all I can only assume they punched her and tore their clothes off in a fit of anger. Now if we can only discover the clip of them changing…
<miu with clothes on ground>
After losing a bet to Chika that Nobue could stop smoking, she takes the girls to the beach for a nice way to cap the show off.
<girls at beach>

Well it seems it has been a long time since my last post. A few days ago I thought I should get off my bum and write something and as I said way back when, my next post would be about the super cute show Ichgo Mashimaro Encore OVA 2 and so it is. On a slightly more personal note it seems i’m kinda losing my interest in anime. Mabye it’s just i’m not following more than 2 shows, 1 of which finishes this week. I’ll miss you K-ON!. So in an attempt to help spark this back up again here the latest (subbed) OVA there is. This one has a few stories packed into it like all the episodes and if you have read the manga, then you should be able to remember where they all came from. This isn’t so much a review like I normaly do but rather just a gallery from the episode and my random thoughts on it.

Due to some unfortunate circumstances, which were honestly and 100% totally out of my control (me and my lazy ass) my follow up part 2 post that was coming “tomorrow” has been delayed an entire week or so. However I have the time now so lets do this. more…

Well to be honest my gundam is already finished but I took as many pics as I could between the steps before going onto the next but due to my sister messing with the camera, some of the unarmored shots I took are missing so what you see here is the end result of the parts such as arms, legs and such.

Day 1

Yet again today was a rather dark and cold day so all in all it was a rather subpar gundam building day but I care not for cold weather so construction went ahead.

1 thing I love about PG kits is how they are built. Most kits you buy start on the chest, move over to the arms, up to the head, down to the waist, further down to the legs and finaly the feet. However these kits start from the feet and work their way up logicaly so the last thing to be build is the head itself. Ah great stuff. As some photos are gone so you’ll have to make do with a combined leg/foot pic. more…

This just in, the much awaited 2nd season of Haruhi will indeed air this year. A few weeks ago it was revealed that the 1st season will reair in april. Of course this caused quite a bit stir in fans and many, including myself, thought “well they the hell make an announcement leading us to believe you were airing season 2 this april?”. It seems they had a plan all along and according to reports, season 2 will begin after the airing of the 1st season. In otherwords Haruhi season 2 airs in july. So unless there is a report further down the track declairing otherwise, mark it on your calanders… Haruhi season 2 in july

So today my brand spanking new gundam kit arrived in what I thought was a rather excessivly sized box. Looked like it could of shipped a small child it was so large. As the pics below should show as well this kit is indeed so big that it requires (rather gracious of Bandai) a carry handle to cart around; something i’ve never had the pleasure of seeing on a kit i’ve bought. Gone is the flimsy cardboard housing that could eaisly be taken apart by some theiving bastard to steal a precious runner which would leave you and your kit high and dry. This baby is fully enclosed, fully colored thick cardboard which looks like in itself would of cost a little bit to make.

It even has embossed kanji on the side of the box which makes it very pretty to display. Unfortunatly due to the weather and the time this guy arrived construction is schedualed to start tomorrow when I wake up so this is sort of a pre-build post just to show off the box. Next 2, 3 or mabye even 4 posts I do will be about the building of this bad boy. Fun times ahead!

PG Astray kit together with the Limited options kit. This includes an extra katana, stand for both weapons as well as clear armor plating that replaces 2/3rds of the armor on him, including head, shoulders, 1 arm, 1 leg, chest and waist,  allowing you to show his innards off.

This is the other side of the box. Spiffy no?

Next up we have a size comparison with the Strike gundam’s housing. As you can see the Astray box is around 2 – 3 inches taller and about 2 inches wider. More parts = more fun

And finally here we have the side of the box which has the handle on it as well as the embossing. So far this kit gets a 10/10 on box presentation

So… tomorrow starts a long day of sore shoulders and modeling. Many more pics to come.
