New Stuffs!

Posted by Neko Kyou in Updates on February 29th, 2008

Some pics of what I’ve bought during my short trip to Singapore as well as my brand new laptop.

My Brand New Dell Laptop

My new “home”

My original plan was to get one from Singapore during my trip, since I thought it was going to be cheaper and better there. But luckily, I did some scouting here before I left, and found out that while Singapore laptops are in a way cheaper and better, they do not fit my needs. They have good processors and memory at a low price, but they have terrible graphic cards. In the end I settled for this Dell Inspiron 1520 black. It’s actually black on the outside and silver inside.

Took me nearly 4 days to get it up and running as I liked it (in between my anime and CabalSEA closed beta) and I’m not quite done yet. I have yet to install a few other softwares which I’m still looking around for.

Fruits Basket vol 23 & .hack//GU+ vol 1

After waiting for so long, Fruits Basket Vol. 23 finally arrived…

There were so many new manga’s I wanted to buy, but due to lack of funds (read: money spent elsewhere) I only came back with 2 manga. The final volume of Fruits Basket and the first volume of .hack//G.U.+

And they’ve been sitting in my bag since, haven’t had the chance to read them yet.

PSPs and DSs Oh My!

Mine… All mine!!!

Okay, maybe not all… But I won’t really say which are mine, because while I own 2 of what’s in there, technically others could be mine too. Confusing, yes? But true.

So, based on my previous shopping list I posted before leaving for Singapore:

  1. A laptop that is at least on par with my desktop which is ~3 years old. (Checked)
  2. PSP Slim & Lite. Or Lite & Slim. Whatever. (Checked)
  3. External HDD Casing, to house my anime-infested hard drive so I can use it on my new laptop (See #1). (Checked)
  4. Ace Attorney: Apollo Justice for my NDS. (Objection! Checked)
  5. A few other new Wii/DS/PSP games to keep me busy until I get my PS3. (Pata Pata Pata Pon! Checked)

Yay! I’ve managed to complete my shopping list! 😀


Pon Pon Pata Pon!

Shakugan no Shana II Episode 14

Posted by khilly in Shakugan no Shana on February 28th, 2008

Eternal Lover


Shakugan no Shana II Episode 14Heh

After the big fight last episode, none of the mysteries was solved other than revealing that Johan is really alive. Though in the midst of everything, Pheles pushed Kazumi away by saying that she is only a human and shouldn’t be involved but why the same thing wasn’t mention to Keisaku. Yet Shana did not let this petty scene trouble her love rival and still involve Kazumi in everything.

Shakugan no Shana II Episode 14

Then Kazumi asked for a very surprising request. What do she hope to achieve by bringing Pheles to the school festival? Trying to reignite her “human” feelings? Shouldn’t they learn a lesson when Wilhelmina tried that on Margery? On the other hand, Eita and Matake are doing fine together. But Eita does seem to have a problem facing Margery after the school incident and is now facing a crossroad in his life.

Back to Kazumi and Co. It seems everything is going well for Kazumi as she tries to remind Pheles what love means to he. The day ends with no casualty and the school festival finally comes to an end. But as Pheles is about to leave, she played her trump card. Everything that she did turn out to be a diversion for the real Pheles arrive and she is determine to get Johan out of Yuuji. She was prepared for everything, expect for Silver’s hand coming out of Yuuji’s body and piercing her.

Silver's hand sticking out

Shakugan no Shana II Episode 13

Convergence, Then a Hint


Shakugan no Shana II Episode 13Go go

Pheles, the Beautiful Whim has finally came! Finally a worthwhile action packed after weeks into the series. Yuji panic while cornered by Pheles, released his silver Fuzetsu and Margery went berserk seeing that. No doubts things are going bad for them. Even Wilhelmina whom I thought to be a calm person is quite shocked and is trying to accept that the inevitable has arrive.

Shakugan no Shana II Episode 13

With Shana going against Pheles and Wilhelmina holding down Margery, the school became a bloody battleground. The battle looks grim for Shana and Wilhelmina with Pheles’s Inbelna has a clear advantage while Margery beyond the voice of reasoning continues her destruction. Kazumi, Keisaku and Eita cannot do anything as they are only human in a battle of monsters. Even Matake was not spared.

Shana and Wilhelmina manage to seize an opportunity and their teamwork is to be reckon with. Margery had finally recovered her rationality but at a great price. More plot were release with Johan being alive and trapped in the Reiji Maigo. As they fix the mess they made at the school, I wonder if the emotion scarring left behind today is mended as well. But at least this event somehow turns out well somehow for Matake.

Huggy Scene

Took her long enough to get that close

Just a short post to say that I’m back from Singapore and have just bought a new laptop, but the Internet connection has been nothing short of terrible the last couple of days. Once the connection has stabilized, I’ll post up some pictures of what I’ve bought during my short trip. If you’ve been lurking over at Dyna’s side, you might already have idea and that it has something to do with gaming.

About 2 weeks worth of anime to catch up and a ton of other posts which I haven’t been able to get to since Chinese New Year. Hopefully I’ll be able to get back to posting regularly again over the next couple of days.

Oh yeah, anyone reading tried CabalSEA yet? 😀

Unfinished Page

Rating: 7.0/10

This episode is mainly about Sai’s book. We get to see the content of book that Sai has accidentally left behind. The team decides to have a peek. They discover that the book is about Sai and his older brother because they can see a character that resembles Sai. So, Sakura suspects that the other character is Sai’s brother. There is a pattern in the picture book. The person inside keeps on fighting with new enemy on every page and he uses his enemy’s weapon and clothes. In the center of the book, there is an unfinished drawing of a person that looks like Sai but without a face.

Before the reading scene, Yamato tells the truth about Naturo’s power and destruction that he made. Naruto actually knows about the usage of Nine-tail power. Thus, Yamato advises him not to use it as that is not his true power. He should not rely on it to save Sasuke and Sakura.

In the end of the episode, Yamato’s clone manages to track Orochimaru’s hideout. He quickly sends the information to Yamato. Team Kakashi is ready to resume their mission after a short break. In Orochimaru’s hideout, Sai is given the honor to meet with dum dum dum… Sasuke! And Sasuke does not seem to be so pleased.
