Kannagi ☆ Star

Lucky Star invades Kannagi

Miyuki’s hair turned purple!

A rather straightforward and obvious cameo for Lucky Star’s cast. I just had to LOL when I saw this scene. The episode itself was one of the best in the series so far. Who knew an entire episode of karaoke would be so much fun 😀

There seem to be some big fuss in Japan over Kannagi’s manga development, specifically on how Nagi isn’t exactly as pure as fans originally thought. I’m not exactly sure on the details but apparently this wasn’t the first time Nagi had appeared in human form, and she actually had a lover previously whom she gave up her virginity to.

I never did find that as a reason to start causing a ruckus over. Then again, when you’re a big fan of something, this sort of twist would really get to you. Just like how Tsubasa Reservoir Chronicle and xxxHolic is getting on my nerves by shattering the “zettai daijoubu” dream of Cardcaptor Sakura…

Dragonball Evolution Looks Pretty Good Actually…

Posted by Neko Kyou in Rants, Thoughts on December 11th, 2008

Just saw the above trailer for the upcoming Dragonball Evolution movie, which has been dubbed by many as the greatest movie disaster of the decade. I used to think so too, and even made a promise to myself that I wouldn’t go anywhere near the movie when it’s out.

But after seeing the trailer, the movie is beginning to look pretty good. The special effects are especially good. The movie itself looks good but there is just one problem. It’s called Dragonball.

You can easily see from the trailer how much the story has actually deviated away from its actual story. The Dragonballs in the movie was created by 7 mystics and Bulma actually joins in the fight (love her bike, though).

This just isn’t Dragonball, but a different movie pretending to be it in order to draw in more viewers. I’m pretty sure that it will be an enjoyable movie as long as we disregard this as an actual movie based on the series. In other words, if this was a trailer for a movie that’s not Dragonball, I would have been very interested to watch it.

Maybe. Well, at least the trailer’s cool. :roll:

The 3-Tails: From a Few Pages into a Full Blown Arc

Posted by Neko Kyou in Naruto, Rants on December 9th, 2008

3 Tails

I seriously can’t believe this. Not only have we wasted an entire season of fillers right before the Hidan-Kakuzu arc, we’re now getting even more fillers. DB chose a really good time to stop subbing Naruto.

What took just a few pages to complete will now apparently take an entire season. Deidara and Tobi’s easy and peaceful mission of capturing the “hostless” 3 tailed beast in the manga will turn into an epic battle and I assume that the jinchuuriki for sanbi will magically appear out of thin air. They even tried to make it look epic and calling it “The Three Tails’ Arrival Arc”.

I’ve been faithfully keeping up with the anime even it’s been full of fillers ever since the rescue Sasuke arc a few years ago. But I don’t think I can take another season of it. Unless it somehow turns out to be interesting (which I doubt), I’ll most probably skip this part.

Sakura - Shannaro!

“What!? More fillers!? SHANNARO!”

Actually, how many people are still watching the anime?

I’m the only one that’s been keeping up with Naruto Shippuuden among my friends. The ones that doesn’t read the manga, at least.

Slow Updates

Posted by Neko Kyou in Updates on September 4th, 2008

You might have noticed that the updates here have been slowing down over the past month or so. That is because I’m going through a rather hectic period and also because I’ve started playing Ragnarok Online again. While RO does take up a lot of my time, it’s not the main reason that I’ve been occupied.

The main culprit behind the lack of updates will soon be gone (hopefully by the end of this month) after which I’ll be able to get back to a more regular posting schedule.  According to Google Analytics, I’m still getting about 200-300 visitors daily even with the lack of new posts, but at the same time I’m also getting massive amounts of spam comments, which is disheartening.

Regardless, updates will continue to be slow for the time being, but should be back to full swing by the end of the month.

Zero is losing his touch…

Posted by Neko Kyou in Code Geass on June 17th, 2008

Code Geass R2 Episode 10

Geometry Wars?

Zero just keeps getting pwned every other episode nowadays. Whatever happened to the grand master of scheming 10 moves in advanced that captured the hearts of everyone last season? Charles’s memory altering Geass must have caused Lelouch to drop a few screws in his head.

Not only did Xing-ke managed to read Zero’s every move, he even allowed Zero to think he had the upper hand when the entire time the Black Knights were dancing on Xing-ke’s palm. To top it off, the Chinese Federation still has Kallen hostage. I thought it was rather humiliating for Zero to have Diethard talk to him like that as well.

Shen Hu

Strongest Knightmare Frame around. Also the ugliest.

Damn mad Indian scientist. If you could create such overly high-spec’ed Knightmare Frame, why didn’t you do that with Guren or with Gawain before? And it puzzles me that an Indian-manufactured Knightmare Frame was given the name “Shen Hu” even though it wasn’t meant to be give to the Chinese Federation in the first place.

I actually had hope for a brilliant episode during the Black Knight’s counter-attack to rescue Kallen, but that ended up in a very disappointing manner. Zero should have tried to win Xing-ke over to his side like he did with Rollo, but instead he made him into a bitter enemy he cannot defeat both in strategy and combat.

Zero’s big talk about how he will teach Xing-ke the difference between strategy and real-time combat was back crumbling down at him. Definitely not good for morale, espcially now that they’re trapped in a tomb no less.

Zero plotting his next move

“Just wait til next episode. I’ll pwn the whole lot of you in a single move.”

At least he seems to be confident at turning the tables of their hopeless situation around next episode. Even without Xing-ke and Shen Hu to worry about, there’s 3 Knights of Round and Avalon. The Black Knights are missing Kallen and her Guren Kashoushiki. Although judging by his performance lately, it might not work out as he hoped. Subete wa keikaku doori… janai.

But the biggest surprise and mystery of the day was…

Lelouch Teleport Hax!

Double-U Tee Eff?

OMGWTFBBQ!? What is he doing back in Ashford when he’s trapped in a tomb surrounded in all directions!?
