I watched the first episode of Kyo-Ani’s latest garbage, chuunibyou demo koi ga shitai. Now I have to go to the clinic and have myself checked.

In other news, agua burger turned out to be pretty fun, despite how slow it is. I’ve also picked up Tekken Tag Tournament 2. As I have no experience with Tekken in general, this will be my introduction to the game series. Perhaps that was a mistake…

I’m hungry.

This game was not quite as fun as I anticipated. And before anyone asks, yes, I do suck at the game; but I don’t know if that is just because of my lack of skills or the fact that I only spent three hours total playing the shit. I find it hard to get into, and I feel absolutely no “connection” with any of the characters. The only character I actually like, purely for aesthetic reasons is Shadow Labrys’ persona Asterius, but only because it looks badass moving about in the background like a giant target waiting to be persona broke. Fucking shitty character… In fact, it was so disappointing I decided to dish out some money on my backup plan. That’s right, the game that everyone is afraid to even mention: AquaPazza.

The name leaves a bad taste in my mouth. Now I know it doesn’t look good at first glance, or even after a hour of gameplay footage. However, I should point out that despite the gimmicky idea of adding characters from different Aquaplus/Leaf games into a horrible crossover (Marvel, anyone?) and giving them a fighting engine and character movesets; the game itself looks pretty solid. It’s not a typical animu fighter, and doesn’t utilize air-dash, and other broken mechanics (partners aside), and the combos aren’t entirely too ridiculous. There are legitimate tactics, footsies, gameplay that seems to be entirely ignored by the majority solely for the fact that it’s an anime fighter. So, here I am to prove them wrong by playing this crap for about a month.

Expect to see a “amagawd, Aquapizza sucks” post come October.

You know what I can’t stop watching? Why did nobody tell me about this thing?

What’s that? There’s a game? Oh, that thing. No, not interested.

I find the Japanese opinions on this video interesting, as it’s entirely contrary to the Americans’. Americans think it is fucking hot. The average Japanese otaku goes, “Ew, old hags. lulz”

Not to mention a majority of Americans can’t take their eyes off the the curves, cleavage and sexy poses. Yet, the Japanese complain about how the outfits look like cheap cosplay pieced together from construction paper.

Oh… silly Japanese.

This is but one reason for the declining birth rate in Japan.

The beginning of EVOLUTION 2012 started out with a bang, with the announcement that Persona 4: Arena for the PS3 will be region-locked.

Since the article I linked to is just too wordy, I’ll copy and paste the important bits.

[…] we are not doing this out of malice or a desire to control.
The decision to region-lock P4 Arena was a business one, […]
[…] the dramatic difference between the Yen and the Dollar makes
for a dramatic difference in price.
AtlusUSA

 Indeed, the reason for region-locking was not out of malice or a desire to control. It was simply an innocent act wrought from harmless greed. God bless capitalism!

Honestly.

Arcana Heart 3 never took off like I hoped and prayed it would. People were just too afraid of getting vanned.

So now I have to place my hopes on the next craze from Japan: Persona 4: The Ultimate in Mayonaka Arena, also known as “P4U” for short. It is a collaboration between Atlus (Shin Megami Tensei, Digital Devil) and Arc System Works (Guilty Gear, BlazBlue) to milk the money train that is Persona.

I did not play Persona 4, but if it plays out like the Shin Megami Tensei series, then it’s probably a repetitive dungeon crawler. I don’t really care for the background of this animu fighter, but I like jumping on bandwagons, so I’ll pretend to be a Persona fanboy just long enough to work my penis into the pants of one of these annoying Persona fangirls.

So I lost all interest in posting here after losing that aniblog tourney. Or so I thought. The truth is, I just found better things to do, like catching up on old series and getting to the next level in competitive gaming. But only for today, I am back to highlight a great show called Queen’s Blade Rebellion. I remember not liking the first Queen’s Blade, and if you consider yourself of fine taste then you probably share the same sentiment.

If one was “man enough” to watch the first Queen’s Blade series in its entirety, then there really isn’t a need to explain why he should watch Queen’s Blade Rebellion. For the ones who were smart enough to watch the first episode and skip all the way to the second season, here’s one reason why you should watch it:

Legal Loli.

Finally, possibly for the first time in fantasy, we get treated to Dwarfs that do not resemble hobbits! They’re far less furry than the lawn gnomes that mine diamonds in your yard. I bet they taste positively divine… and the best part is that they are completely fucking legal. They are older than your mom; and possibly your grandma.

But let’s be honest here, half the reason I look forward to every episode is for a special guest appearance by an old Queen’s Blade competitor. So far, we have seen Claudette, Elena, Leina, Risty, Ymir, and most importantly:

Formerly an evil queen. Currently a loving housewife.

Aldra was freed of her demonic possession and thus lost her eternal child-like body. I am particularly not happy with that.
