7th Day of an Anime Christmas

Posted by Neko Kyou in Random Fun on December 20th, 2007

On the 7th day of Christmas, my anime gave to me…

Dullindal Destiny Haro PLANTS

7 Haro PLANTs (highlighted in circles in case you can’t see all 7 😛 )

With 4 episodes under its belt, Tanekyara Gekijo (or Mini Seed and Mini Destiny as I call them), it should be considered a series on its own within Cosmic Era. This is obviously fanservice especially in episode 1 with the gang abusing the power of Seed to the maximum. Personally, I think Lacus has the most powerful Seed of all. She can even control Kira with it… no wonder she’s dubbed Lacus “Darth” Clyne.

Gil Edition Time Slip Stick Hmm… Is it just me or does this stick Rey produced and proudly called “Gil Edition Time Slip Stick” look a heck lot like Sakura’s (CCS) star wand? The colour and the wings are quite matching with a miniature Dullindal replacing the star crest.

Sunrise really stereotyped each of the characters according to how fans normally sees them. Kira is portrayed as a happy-go-lucky person who cries easily (and quite often) and Athrun is seen as the dependable friend. This holds true in Seed, but I’m not quite sure in Destiny lol. Still, I’m glad they followed what fans thought from Seed.

While the Seed abuse are just too damn accurate of a representation of each how they made use of their Seed in battle, the episode itself is nothing much compared to Dullindal Destiny 1.

Chibi Shinn, Chibi Luna, Chibi Rey

The Chibi Destiny Bunch…

Chibi Kira & Super Tori

Super Tori is… scary…

Chibi Kira & Chibi Athrun

“Mommy Athrun… Shinn broke Super Tori…”

Chibi Kira & Chibi Athrun

And they all live happily ever after…

 

Noticed how there are more and more screenshots as the days goes by? 😀

6th Day of an Anime Christmas

Posted by Neko Kyou in Random Fun on December 19th, 2007

On the 6th day of Christmas, my anime gave to me…

Ryouzanpaku's Masters

6 Scary Crazy Masters (and a pair of boobies for fun).

There are plenty of memorable scenes in History’s Strongest Disciple, Kenichi, but the best is without a doubt in episode 49 (and I’m sure many will agree with me on this one) where Kenichi finally made good use of all his training with the different masters.

His previous combination of different martial arts along with his original 5-in-1 no-rhythm punch was awesome, but having Kenichi mimicking all his masters down to their personalities is just pure win.

I’ve watched that scene dozens of times and still have yet to get bored with it. It’s easily the most memorable in the entire series, one that really gave out the vibe of the strongest disciple in history. Sure, his strongest moment was during the final moments of the battle against Odin in the last episode, but that was nowhere as cool and awesome.

History's Strongest Disciple Kenichi

I actually wonder if its at all possible to mix and match different martial arts like Kenichi does. It’s probably possible to learn different styles and switch during combat, but combining everything in a single move is probably impossible. The manga has gone much farther into the story and with any luck, we’ll get to see a new season of Kenichi.

Watching Kenichi kinda made me regret wasting my time back when I was learning Wushu back in high school. After becoming a yellow belt, I got lazy and started to skip training sessions and never bothered to go for tests/exams or whatever you call it (since I’ve forgotten the proper term) to upgrade my rank even though I probably should have been a blue belt. But one good thing that came out of being lazy was that I decided to quit and joined the Red Crescent instead and that was loads of fun as well.

Shirahama Kenichi

“Apachai dash! Be prepared to go to hell!”

5th Day of an Anime Christmas

Posted by Neko Kyou in Random Fun on December 18th, 2007

The 12 Days of Christmas anime style is a joint effort from members of the A.B.C., suggested by CCYoshi and joined by the following members of the group: Owen, Usagijean, 0rion, Roxas, Quinn, Martin, Michael, DS, CalAggie, Moogy, animanachronism (who went with the Gundam Meister’s on the 4th day while I went with the MS) and DeathToZippermouth, Kabitzin (who went with 12 very useful WP plugins for your WordPress blog instead of anime moments) and Reverse Vampire @ THAT  

On the 5th day of Christmas, my anime gave to me…

Black Cat

5 Bullets Deflected by Black Cat.

This is one of my favourite and most memorable scene in Black Cat’s anime. Train easily deflected all 5 shots from Durham, the Apostle’s resident gunslinger. There wasn’t a single wasted move. Each bullet took one step and one swing of Hades to completely deflect the chi bullets before Train pointed the gun up under Durham’s chin.

Not only did it really show the differences between Train and Durham, you can really get the vibe of a true legendary eraser (or an ex-eraser in this case) from Train. In order to pull off what he did, you would need to know where the bullets are coming from, when they will hit, and the range. Not to mention uber fast reflex that is humanly impossible. They’re bullets for goodness sakes, even if they are made from chi, it still takes a split second for them to travel within that 5 steps distance.

I didn’t really know anything about the anime when I first watched it and only read the manga after I found the ending of the anime to be rather poor. Maybe that’s why I prefer the anime version of Train over the manga version. He’s much more cooler in the anime and the timeline and how he met Saya was easier to follow.

It wasn’t until when Black Cat was aired over Animax that I finally caught the true episode 15 (A Runaway Cat), which was not shown anywhere else as far as I know. But it finally explained the conversation and flashback between Charden and Sephiria when they were in the helicopter heading towards Eve. Probably a marketing gimmick or something. Either that or they accidentally missed airing an episode on TBS *rofl*

4th Day of an Anime Christmas

Posted by Neko Kyou in Random Fun on December 17th, 2007

On the 4th day of Christmas, my anime gave to me…

Gundam 00

4 Brand New Gundam.

Gundam 00 (aka g00ey) first few episodes did not impress me at all. While many others had praised it, I found it to be sucky and downright poor. Even Gundam Seed Destiny’s first impression was better.

But in later episodes I began to find a strange appeal to the very overpowered Gundams, especially in the latest few episodes. The Meister’s are beginning to push their Gundams more as they are backed into a corner and the struggle that was lacking earlier on finally forces some character development to take place among the emo pilots.

The Meisters aside, the Gundams are cool. And if they can continue to come up with surprises such as the one below, it’s only going to get better.

Gundam Nadleeh

“Surprise! I am a she-male after all!”

I know I make fun of g00ey a lot, but seriously, it’s much better than I expected and is definitely memorable. How often do you see a Gundam perform a sex-change (or at least, turn into another unit) in front of your very eyes? :)

3rd Day of an Anime Christmas

Posted by Neko Kyou in Random Fun on December 16th, 2007

Before we begin…

This post has been brought to you by the A.B.C., suggested by CCYoshi and joined by the following members of the group:

Owen, usagijean, 0rion, Roxas, Quinn, Martin, Michael, DS, CalAggie, Moogy.

All your Christmas gifts are belong to us!

And back to our regular program.

On the 3rd day of Christmas, my anime gave to me…Shugo Chara Eggs

3 Shugo Chara Eggs

Even thought I called it a cross between Sailormoon and Care Bears, Shugo Chara really turned out to be something much more and I’m enjoying every bit of it. The storyline is surprisingly quite solid despite the slightly weak opening and there appears to be much more going on behind the scenes that has yet to surface. Hopefully, rumors that the series will run for 50 or so episodes are true.

Taking a few minutes to think, I really can’t recall any magical girl series that I’ve enjoyed since Cardcaptor Sakura and Akazukin Cha Cha. I was very near to dropping this series when I had decided not to blog about it early this season, but I’m glad I stuck with it for a couple more episodes after that.

Among Amu’s 3 shugo chara’s, my favourite is easily Miki. I don’t know why, but I just find her the most adorable and interesting compared to Ran and Su. Miki might have even been the hook that grabbed me in the first place.

Shugo Chara

Spade, Heart and Club. Where did Diamond go?
