so i figerd why not celabrat by doing a review on a anime the revols pretty much aound christmas and by that i meen amagami ss yes i know i was doing reviews for each arc and thows are still on thare way as soon as curt gets off his ass and wright the ones he sed he was going to but for now lets go with this
most of you probly now the basics of the story by now but for thous that dont her you go Two years ago, Tachibana Junichi got his heart broken by a girl who didn't show up for a date on Christmas Eve. Now a second year student in high school, Junichi spends his days inside his closet planetarium, going to school and hanging out with his friends Tanamachi Kaoru and Umehara Masayoshi.
After a chance encounter with one of the most beautiful girls in school, the third year student Morishima Haruka, Junichi finds himself spending time with her, carrying books for her or having her unexpectedly jump on his back and act as she's a jockey and he's her horse. Soon enough, Junichi becomes romantically interested in Haruka which leads to...
Amagami SS is based on a PS2 dating game featuring six different girls. The story of the anime is arranged in an omnibus format, with each heroine getting her own version of the story animated. Each heroine will sing her own version of the ending theme song.
now with that out of the way let me get into my thouts on the show i like the show its rely good not the best love story in anime (not by a long shot) but still worth a watch but thar are sum problems and one of them is the format one arc per girl was a nice idea but the constent reset of the world gets a bit tiersum after 25 eps and thars no reson for the reset in the anime like in higarashi thar was reson for the constent reset after a arc but in this anime its pretty mutch like ops this girls story is dune lets restart and tell the story agen with a difrent girl this mechanic works in dateing sime games becuse it give the player a chuse on witch girl to go after but in a anime its like being forsed to reply a game to get all the endings sum people like that i find it bathersum
now my second gripe with it and thats the hole the closer to the MC(main cariter) you wher the worst the ending you got and the less you new him the better ending im not going into detal on this but its sumthing that become painfully oveuse pretty erly on and it alows you to gage what type of ending each girls going to get
now that i got the problems I have with the show let me get into the things I love about it first off the cast is great each one of the girls has a certen sumthing to them that makes thare arcs fun to watch wether it be harukas im gana do whatever pops into my head that seems like fun or rehoko's i whant to diet but I love sweets so mutch hell even the cast memebers that dont have arcs are fun like junichis sister miya shes a riot thow her lauph gets on my nervs arter hearing it for a full arc and umehara is just a fucking bro all the way thew evryone has sumthing to them thats fun
the music is good i love the op's and endings (all 7 of them)and the BGM relly helps the mood along the art isint rely mutch to brag about but its good and the story telling for each ark is good as well i cud see any one of this arcs being abel to streached into a 12 ep serres over all i give amaghami ss 8 kisses to random body parts out of 10

I know the title of the post is stupid but its rely the best way to discrib this OVA in under 12 words
okay guys I just finished what is quite pasably the best OVA I have ever watched it tuk a year to finish(as in the last ep was relesed this munth) and I rely did not whant it to end but as the saying go's all good things must come to a end I gess that go's for stuff as great as katanagatari as well
like I sed this OVA is great and thats manly due to its story witch comes from it being a OVA based on one of Nisio, Isin who is also the Author of the light novel
Bakemonogatari(it two have a rely good OVA) but the funny thing is if you where just going by the Synopsis of the OVA and had no prier info on ishin's other works you mite just look this over I know I almost did and if you dont beleve me read it for yourself
"A swordfight story taking place in Edo era (17th - 19th century). Yasuri Shichika is the seventh head of the Kyoutou school of Japanese sword martial arts and lives in Fushou Island with his sister Nanami. With the order from a female samurai general Togame, he sets out for a trip to collect the twelve treasured swords created by the legendary swordsmith Shikizaki Kiki."
if you wher going by this alone it just sounds like a ganaric samurai anime but the story in its full is so good that the first ep draws you in and dusint let go till well after the end credits of the last ep and to show you what I meen Im wrighting this review up at 2:10 AM EST and I finished this ep at 12:00 AM EST what have I been doing for thows 2 hours crying my fucking eyes out just thinking of what I whent thew watching this 12 ep OVA(amung other events that happend that will not be menchuned) in this last ep all the emotions I felt thew the 11 preveuse EPs just fluded back at the end of this the story for this OVA is so good I cant put it on a 1-10 rating Id have to use my good fraind cloudsoras rating scaland give this a 13 for OVAs I rely cant think of a OVA that has a story that even cpms close to katanagatari's and yes that includes gundam
but we all now a story alone dusint make a OVA good you also need a good cast and I have to say thar isint a singol cast member I ether didint like or at lest respected them for thar convictions and thats 30+ Characters but my absalut favrets are without a dout Shichika and togame oh god a anime reviewer that love tha main cast members thats new hate on me all you whant but this two just work off eachother so well even when this OVA gets dialog heviy (witch it duse alot) the faceol reactions and body jesters work so well that you cant help but get cout up in the moment and this is only added when you facter in thar persanalatys togame being the brains of the outfit and Shichika being the brons it rely just works manly becuse Shichika in the begining of the story is dumb as a sack of bricks when it come to comen nolige but yet still sarp as a take when it comes to fighting(call it the goku facter)and ofcorse with her great brain togame comes off as a know it all but I have to say its so fucking cute how she acts when shes acholy pruven wrong or when Shichika ponts out sumthing she missed so with persanalatys like this can you blame me for loveing them
and speeking of loveing I absalutly love the sound trak of this OVA the OPs the ends the BGMs evry part of it is great the ops get you pumped for the ep from witch the BGMs draw you in to the story from how well they match the mood of the seen a well as do a good jobof merging into one a nother during a ep I can housitly say I cudint tell when one began and another ended they just blend so well and ofcorse the ending duse a great job of cooling your hot blood down after a great fight
and I have to say thar are sum fucking great fights in this OVA even for being a dialog heviy show the scripting for the fight seens are top noch the animemation is smoth without any giters or random cut aways the battel dialog is ushaly straight forwerd and to the pont but at the same time with certen chariters have deeper meenings to them that make you think over all thar was not a singol fight I didint absalutly love
now despite how mutch prase Iv been singing about this OVA it duse have sum problemsfirst off yes its a vary dialog heviy show each ep is about a hour long and a good 60 to 80% of each ep is talking for me I rely didint care becuse I love the non fighting seens as mutch as the fighting ones but for the vewers hat are looking for a havy action show will probly not have the atenchun span to watch this OVA the next thing is the art yeat another think I absalutly love but I can see how sum people will be put off by the chariter desings as they are abnormol to say the lest so if your looking for chatiers that look as detalid as say monsters you defanetly will not be happy with the art
over all I have to say go and watch this OVA even if thars one or two things you may not like about it Im posativ you will find atlest 12 things you love(number pun fully intended) so mutch so that if it duse come to the US(witch I rely hope it duse) you will probly be like me and be whating outside whating for the mail to arive to get your copy of the blu-ray dics regardless of the weather now with that sed I must go now and marathon all 12 eps of this amazing OVA again

to thows who know me its no secret that I love horror movies Iv seen all the greats friday the 13th halloween and of corse the nightmare on elm street movies witch is what Il be talking about in this review yea yea I know your thinking WTF 2 none anime related posts one after another well sorry but dispite what people on the net may think I do like stuff other then anime and I like to talk about them from time to time
now for on to the review a nightmare on elm street is a re-imagining of the horror icon Freddy Krueger, a serial-killer who wields a glove with four blades embedded in the fingers and kills people in their dreams, resulting in their real death in reality.(I know so origanol right) let me get out of the way and say if you seen one nightmare on elm st youv pretty moch seen them all including this one all the movies fallow a simaler pater kids sleep krueger kills kids find way to kill krueger rins wash repet the only reson to watch them all is to see how krueger kills thes people this is ware this move acholy meets its first down fall thars no real inmaganativ kills in this movie its all krueger just slashing and stabing no morphing no makeing sumone into a humen pupet nuthing
my next problem with this movie is the new look and actor for krueger the origanol krueger was played by Robert Englund as was evry krueger up till this new moview war they desied to go with Jackie Earle Haley
now dont get me wrong haley did a good job but he rely dusint have the krueger voice as englund did when I was watching the old elm st movies for the first time I alwas had nightmares thanks to englunds voice the raspyness of it rely pushed the fact that this guy was burnd alive ware as haleys voice relly didint do it for me his krueger vocie and is rachar voice are one and the same and yes the voice was raspy but it just wasint the same as when englund played krueger
the same gos for the face the new krueger looks fare to humen there was fare to much unburnt skin for my likeing and his nose was far to flat and ofcorse its not just the voice and the face that off about the new krueger is alot of the sutol movments and finger twiches that are gon it use to be any time you saw kruger talking he wood be flicking a finger or his wrist but in this movie we only see the twich once and its no so mutch a twich as it is him makeing a threat witch was a big turn off for me
thow even with thouse problems I do have to say it still feels like a nightmare on elm st movie and I do sagest that anyone who likes horror movies to atlest give it a trie

Ninjas make everything better. It's a proven scientific fact. Whether it be dinner with the in-laws, church, political debates, or lack-luster blogs the addition of Ninjas can improve the enjoyment level by over 9000%. That said, movies that have Ninjas in them tend to be rather enjoyable for action fans all over. The most recent addition to the Ninja movie universe is The Warrior's Way directed and written by Sngmoo Lee (Don't ask me to pronounce it).
Before I get into it, yes I realize this is not the Gunpla review I promised back in oh..say, June. I've decided to finish up the current models I have now before I start taking pictures of them and such for the reviews. It might be a bit longer till they appear but I have not forgotten about them.
ANYWAYS! The Warrior's Way is actually billed as a "Western" genre movie. I find that hilarious because seeing Katanas swinging and Ninjas jumping all over the place in a genre that is usually filled with cliff-top stake outs and gunfights with Ind-...Native Americans...is completely new to me. And come on, who didn't ever wonder what would happen if Cowboys fought Ninjas?
The movie starts out in what I assume is Japan though it's never confirmed (it's definitely Japan, why would it be anywhere else?). A narration explains the origins of "The Warrior" as I've dubbed him and his life goal of being "The greatest swordsman who ever lived. Ever." Yes, the second ever appears right below the title as it appears on-screen. The opening fight is between The Warrior and the rival clan to his to which The Warrior defeats in a very anime-like "super fast one slice that's an instakill" fashion. He comes across the final living member of the rival clan...a baby girl. At that point The Warrior has a change of heart and not only spared the life of but "adopts" the baby girl. Clearly disobeying his orders and now a wanted man, he flees Japan and heads to America.
Whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa, WHOA! Hold up! Ninjas didn't exist anymore when America was around! Especially since this movie seems to take place in the 1800s! Yes, that is true. I didn't mention this earlier but if your looking for historical or realistic accuracy then your looking at the wrong movie. It's only a fictional, fantasy story with no intention of being "accurate". But that's OK with me! Back to the plot.
After settling down to a new peaceful life in a ghost town with a population filled of circus rejects, The Warriors past soon catches up to him. After already defending the town from a rouge platoon of outlaws, The Warriors old clan tracks him down to the ghost town and draws their swords against The Warrior, the baby girl, and just about everyone else in the town.
Yeah! That's all I'm gonna say about the plot! I'm not actually gonna spoil all the good stuff! But there definitely is some good stuff in this movie. First off, the action. It's everything you'd expect from sword fights to gunfights and every combination of the two that can be made in the 1800s. And nothing is spared in the deaths of people. At one point an outlaw holding a machine gun gets his hands chopped off and the gun continues to fire while turning around and killing everyone standing next to the outlaw. An awesome amount of gore is present but its not COMPLETELY over the top. Hey, if someones gonna get hacked up by a katana, its gonna be messy, and this movie shows that. Special effects wise its certainly no Avatar. Most of the explosions are clearly CGI and the whole movie seemed to be filmed on green screens and sets which gives it this artsy looking but slightly unbelievable atmosphere. In its defense though, it's a refreshing change from the super-gritty realism of most action movies nowadays.
But this movie isn't all straight action. To be honest, the action doesn't even start till about 2/3 through the movie. The rest of the movie is the psudo-love story between The Warrior and a woman living in the town called Lynne. Is it boring? Yeah, to a degree. But it's filled with little bits of small humor so you don't fall asleep.XD Dong-gun Jang, who plays The Warrior gives off a very serious Jackie Chan feel to the character. Through very few lines he made The Warrior a likable character and couldn't wait to see him kick ass every time he grabbed a blade. Although not pushed in the commercials for the movie, there was one actor who really caught my eye. That would be none other than Kate Bosworth. In the words of the great Scooter: "SMOKIN JESUS TITTY CINNAMON" is she GORGEOUS! And even more so as a red head! She ends up being the psudo-lover/apprentice to The Warrior as he teaches her how to use the sword. Which comes in handy at the end of the movie.
In the end, there's nothing super spectacular about The Warrior's Way(Except for a red-headed Kate Bosworth in a corset ^_^). But it should not be dismissed as just another Ninja movie. There is a anime like feel to it all and a great presentation of action. Don't see this movie for the acting, or the story, or any of that. But if you need a movie that is just absolute chaos with cowboys and Ninjas, check it out!
Well, it's not TOO bad for a first movie review...I'd like to see someone else try to do it...I look forward to your letters :) Until next time...see you starside.
thats right thars another gainax anime in production for next season called houkago no pleiadesthar is almost no info on it (not saprising cunsitering how tight liped gainax is but I do have one pic of intaresting info this is a colabaration project with car maker subaru other then that all i can tell you the names of the Director and Character Designer the director is Saeki, Shouji who worked on such gainax anime as FLCL(director), Hanamaru Youchien(story wrighter for ep7), and gurren lagann( Storyboard eps 2, 5, 23, 25, Script wrighter eps 5, 10-11 and Episode Director for eps 2 and 21) Otsuka, Mai will be the Character Designer mai has worked on such anime as air(Key Animation), Hanamaru Youchien( Character Designer) and evan shakugan no shana(many rols) so needless to say this anime is in good hands but Im whondering whats gainax thinking up untill Hanamaru Youchien thy have only relesed a anime once every coppel of years but this year i count atlest 3 including this one I meen I love gainax and the fact thare makeing more stuff but I think the reson they do so well is becuse of the fact they dont make sumthing evry season I just hop this whont cose a drop in quolaty in story or animation

now you know im working my ass off but I just have alot to say today espesholy after seeing the new nanoha movie and I have to say this just may be saperor to the achul orgianol anime the intierty of the story was cundenced into a 2 and haff hour moview with great looking HD animations showing off the new transformations and new fight seens with the end resolt being the best compalation movie I have ever seen if sumone who whanted to get into nanoha right now asked me what they shud start with Id say the movie
now for thous that dont no anything about nanoha the story falows 3rd grader Takamichi Nanoha stumbled upon an injured talking ferret after hearing his telepathic cries for help. The ferret turned out to be Yuuno, an archeologist and mage from another world who had accidentally scattered the dangerous Jewel Seeds throughout Earth. Without the strength to collect the Jewel Seeds, Yuuno had resumed a ferret form and needed someone else to take on the task for him. He gave a red jewel to Nanoha explaining to her with this she could transform and use magic to combat the monsters that threatened them due to the Jewel Seeds. But the monsters are the least of their worries, as Yuuno and Nanoha are not the only ones out to collect the Jewel Seeds.
your probly whondering whats a 2o year old man doing watching a magical gil anime to anser that question all I can say is watch it becuse this is isint your reguler magical girl the fights are fers and the storys incorpareat sci-fi elements into the core of the world and its magic so perfectly that when they started talking about difrent dymenchons you woodint be saprised at all
like I sed in my fist statment this movie looks great in HD the detals in the transformation wher great you cud rely see the hard work they put into it and the fights oh god I cud talk about the old nanoha fights for days and the fights in this movie blow them right out of the water youv never seen a starlight braker till youv seen it in HD it makes gokus spiert bomb look like a basic kai blat in conparasen and takes a fraction of the time to charg
the sound trake is ok nanoha has never rely had a good sound track sept for the ops and to tell the truth i rely didint notis any BMGs at all thew out the movie this in it self isint a bad thing infact it cud be that the BMS fit so well thay you cant help but not notes them or it cud be they rely didint put many in lol
all and all I have to say this is a must see for bolth nanoha and magical girl fans and the moment this comes over to the US Im buying it as you shud to and if you never watched a nanoha anime befor start hear thars rumers of a addaptaion for the second season As and if we get that we are almost garented a movie for strikers (thow thal probly be split in two becuse of its langth nanoha season 1 and 2 12 eps each stikers 26 eps) so if you can go ee this movie now bye
how lucky for you guys no on to what I whant to say wall prsing the new for evangelion info that i dont know(witch thar isint mutch of) I stumboled abon a intavew with tiffany grant ( the VA that plays asuka in evangelion) on asukas finaol line in the EOE movie and I nerly pissed myself on what I just lernd
hers what I read
Tiffany Grant, Asuka's English dub voice actress, made the following statement:
"The most widely circulated translation of the last line of EoE [End of Evangelion] is "I feel sick," but Amanda Winn Lee (Rei Ayanami's English voice actor and director of End of Evangelion) said she asked several translators, and she felt "disgusting" was the most accurate adaptation. You could say she is disgusted with/sick of the situation or with Shinji himself. My favorite explanation though, is this one: My husband, Matt Greenfield, directed the TV series and is very familiar with the whole Eva franchise. Matt has said that although (Eva creator) Hideaki Anno seems to change his mind frequently about what various things mean in Eva, Anno once said that Asuka's comment about feeling "sick" was a reference to morning sickness. Now THAT gives ya something to think about, doesn't it! Of course, Anno is quite passionate about the idea that every person should decide for him or herself what Eva means to them."
now if this is true then the ever populer re-take doujins witch provide a alternet ending to evangelion cud acholy be redconed into te canon witch wood be cool ecuse they wher relly good and yes I read bolth the reguler hentai ver and the clean ver of the doujin
now if youd like to read more I hers a link to it
as sum of you may now Im a big fighting game fan weather it be street fighter to verchawa fighter I love them all and one of my favret fighting games is blazblue witch was developed by Arc System Works. The game's name is a portmanteau of "blaze" and "blue," with the "z" sound omitted in the Japanese pronunciation, rendering it similar to the word "brave" in pronunciation. The game is currently released for the Taito Type X2 arcade system board, with a 16:9 ratio and 768p resolution. It was released on November 19, 2008 in Japan and November 20, 2008 in the United States. It was released on the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 home consoles on June 25, 2009 and when it did it looked great still duse I have to say its one of the best looking fighters out thar
the story is good to Prior to the events of BlazBlue, humanity was on the verge of extinction from the "Black Beast", a creature of Darkness. The world was saved by six heroes who wielded magic. They helped humanity create "Ars Magus", a fusion of magic and technology, to defeat the Beast.
After the war, the Novus Orbis Librarium (the Library or NOL for short) was created to govern the world with the use of Ars Magus. A great deal of dissent was caused by the Library, partly due to Ars Magus' use in nearly every facet of society, and the widening socioeconomic gap between those who could and couldn't use Ars Magus. This dissent would eventually form years later into The Ikaruga Civil War, when the Ikaruga Union openly rebelled against the Library. After the war, the Library imposed a harsher rule on the world, punishing any rebellion against the Library with the death penalty.
In December A.D. 2199, several years after the Ikaruga Civil War, a branch of the Library was utterly destroyed by an SS-class rebel named "Ragna the Bloodedge" also known as the "Grim Reaper", in an attempt to destroy the entire Library. The Novus Orbis Librarium, hoping to stop him, immediately announced the largest bounty ever, available to anyone who could capture him. Interestingly, Ragna possesses a powerful form of Ars Magus known as the "Azure Grimoire" (Grimoire of the Blue in Japan), also known as the BlazBlue. This led the Librarium, as well as the Ikaruga Union and other fighters, to hunt Ragna not just for his bounty, but also his grimoire.
and the way they tell this story is fucking great its told in VN style meeining that thar many stagnet pics with textfor cut seens but dont worry thars voce acting thow youl stell neet to read alot to lol and trust me youl whant to but in each rute they hav CGs to colet and the only what to do that is to get 100% with all the chariters essy huh gust go thew each chariter once wrong evry once and a wiol(well more like alot0 your given a chocs on what actions to take and depending on witch oes you do youl get a difrent outcome and subsaquently difrent CGs so youl be playing thew each rute more then once I meself am about 80% dune with ragna 67% with jin and 49% with taokaka and thats it I havent played any other chariters yet
and I have to say this game has one of the most complext fighting systoms I have ever seen but at the same time is essy to pick up and play if your new(just dont exspect to get to the top of the lederbord)now for the fighting systom BlazBlue is a traditional 2D fighter where two characters participate in a duel on a two dimensional plane. A round is called a "rebel" and one match can consist of one to five "rebels". To win a round, one player must either incapacitate the other by inflicting damage through various attacks to reduce health or by having more remaining health after the clock runs out if the rules of the match has one.
Every character has a weak, medium and strong attack. Also every character has a "unique" technique, called a Drive attack, which is different for each character. Those attacks are also known as "A", "B", "C" and "D". Various combos can be performed by every character through careful input of regular and drive attacks. A combo consists of two or more consecutive attacks that hit an opponent without them retaliating. As combos become longer, each attack will do less damage than normal to give the opponent a chance to retaliate. Grabs can be incorporated into combos also by pressing the "B" and "C" buttons at the same time. Occasionally, some attacks (e.g. Jin's Hirensou) will use portions of the player's heat gauge at the bottom of the screen. The heat gauge is filled by either dealing or receiving damage. When at a certain percentage, special moves called "distortion drives" can be performed. When a distortion drive is successfully performed and connects with the opponent, it deals massive damage and is visually flashier than normal attacks.
Along with attacks every character has two types of block. One is the regular block that can be broken with a "guard crush". That can be achieved by pushing the "guard libra" gauge all the way to the opponent's side through repeated attacks. If the opponent keeps blocking, then their guard can be broken, leaving them open for attack. The second type of block is a barrier block, which is initiated by blocking while holding the "A" and "B" buttons at the same time. A barrier block cannot be broken like a normal guard, but there is a limit on how long one can be held, which is indicated by the barrier gauge. If the barrier gauge empties, then the player will receive 150% damage until it regenerates to half-full. and what i just put thar is the basic stuff Id rather not get into the more advans stuff as I cant hunderstand how to use haff of(read the little comic this was one of my reactions after figering sumthing out) it lol and let me tell you youl whant a fight stick Iv been playing on my 360s reguler controler and after one rebel my hands kill me
the sound trake is rely good I acholy found myself geting my ass kicke becuse I as paying to mutch atenchon to the BGM insted of the achuwell match lol and thars alot of fun stuff you can do with it like this AMV of one of my favret chariters in the game and I ashuer you all the sounds you hear in this vid are all from the game its relly amaving and funny
over all I give blazblue calamity trigger 2 big thubms up if your a fan of 2D fighters or fighters ingenarol youl whant this game for your coletion and if your a fan of VNs then get it becuse this story is rely good on par with RPG storys

Thanks to the overly worried nature of the US security teams, pressure has been put on Japan (and a number of other countries) to prevent suspect packages from making it to our shores. As such, no package over 1lb in weight will be shipped to the US as of November 17 unless they have a business license with the Japan Post.
What does that mean for us? Not too much. Other than our government is being a little silly right now.
For all of those worried about getting your plastic figures shipped to you, don't. Anyone who regularly ships as a business is excluded from this measure, meaning that unless you're having a friend buy you a figure and ship it to you, there will be no issues with the product.
What will be affected? Students and ex-pats looking to send items home are going to have a lot more trouble, as they will now have to send larger goods via sea mail, which is subject to a bit more regular inspection. That means shipping food and bombs is going to be a lot more cumbersome, and might not be worth the bother
when I read this story I litarol was holding my sides over how stupid it is yea it for sacuraty but in the long run its not rely gana do mutch good since a majoraty of objects that are used in attackes agest the US are bout hear in the US so in the long run I dont see how helpfull it is but I rely dont care as long as I can still order my models and stuff

so far that evin bandai namco is leting 90 workers go this is relavent to use at otaku home becuse alot og games we buy come from them mysef and cloudsora(aka curt) are big fans of the .hack serres of games and of corse in more resent years the dynasty warriors gundam games witch are slated for a 3rd instolment hers the full story
game maker Namco Bandai of America is laying off 90 employees in its U.S. offices
The layoffs are due to the company’s previously announced reorganization where it combined its separate mobile and online game businesses into a single division. On top of that, the company has decided to move a considerable amount of game development once done in the San Jose, Calif.-based office back to Japan.
Carlson Choi, the company’s vice president of marketing, confirmed in an interview that the company had layoffs. He said the cuts were made because there wasn’t an exact match between the company’s needs and the skills of the employees available.
“We are partnering with external development studios out there because that is where the game business is going,” he said. “Our goal is to move into digital games and broaden to different platforms. The details are being sorted out now.”
Choi said the company remains focused on making its games more accessible, social, and personal to consumers.
The reorganization announced in August was notable because of the changes sweeping through the game business. Other companies such as THQ, Ubisoft, and Warner Bros. have all made moves to increase their digital games businesses recently.
Digital games are catching on because they use different business models. Console games sell for $60. But online games are often offered free-to-play, where players can play for free and pay real money for virtual goods such as better weapons. That gives recession-hit gamers more options to control their spending as they go. Roughly 35 percent of game maker Electronic Arts’ business is now digital.
Under one label, the Namco Bandai team will develop games that run on multiple platforms, including consoles, the PC, mobile, the web and Apple iOS operating system products. The team will make a concerted effort to expand its presence in the social game market. The goal of having one group is to make games more accessible across more devices and to broaden the company’s consumer base, Kenji Hisatsune, head of Namco Networks, told us in August
basicly what this meens is we mite be paying to dl dynasty warriors gundam 4 in the not so distent fucher I for one wood perer a hard disc for my games that way I know Il alwas have it unlike a cloud based game witch can be lost from haking/ viruse/ server crashes and other problems its not all bad it duse meen games will becume a bit cheeper since they dont need to make or burn the games to disc but not by mutch please let otaku home know what you think of this and we mite just read your email on the next podcat the email is email@example.com

thats right I got my hands on a copy of macross f the false songstress the first of two macross f movies that reteale the story of macross f in a completly difrent way I meen rely if you go into this exspecting a compalation like the gundam movies then be perpared to be dead wrong becuse aside from one or 2 evants(witch even thows are sumwhat difrent to the anime) this is a hole new macross f the over all story remans the same alto whants to fly ranka whant to sing shit hits the fan all the normol stuff youed exspet from macross but still this movie is alot better to the origanol anime in so many ways
the first of witch is the art macross F came out when CGI was just becomeing the norm for anime and yes it looked good for its time but the cg valcarys didint quite fit in with the hand drown city when it came toy the tv serres but in this movie evrything looks like it fight right togeather and the fights(however few thare wher) wher great
the next thing on my list is the OST yea what do you exspet its macross ofcors its gana have a nice OST and hell thare are alot of singing songs in the movie Iv must have seen the lirics pop up on screen atlest 10 to 15 times thewout the movie witch I never once mined becuse thar songs I love Il never get tierd of aimo thow one song I wood have loved to hear in this movie was missing and that was triangel the first OP from the anime I understand why its not thare but still it wood have been nice to throw it in but other then that no real complaints
along with the songs and art the animation quolaty was amazing aswell then again I was waching it in 1080P so evrything was alredy going to look great but the fights realy wher brout up to a hole new level with this that it cud never get wen it first came out on tv it got so visholy intens that at one pont I had to puse it so I cud let my eyes rest a bit
ovcorse not evrything in this movie is good it sufers from random cuts meening that people end up places with no rime or reson for instens in the movie after ranka has a fight with ozuma about her singing and she runs off we get a cut to him being in a car with Cathy whar in the prier seen he was in his house how or why he gets into the car will be a complet lose to anyone who hasent seen the anime other then that this movie relly stands on its own 2 feet
over all I have to say fly out and find this movie and watch it if your a fan of macross and if this is your first introduction to macross then I say go back and watch from the first serres and come back becuse youl be better off that way and speeking of old macross anime in the prevews for the next movie we are treted to sumthing rely cool a VF-1s in niki basaras color skeem what this meens I have no clue but if basara shows up to sing with sherly and ranka I will litaraly shit bricks

you cant ceach him hes a blue hadgehog lol thats right Im doing a game review and its a bit of a thow back review at this sonic 4 PE 1 is the first instolment of a new 2D sonic game and I have to say im loveing it I was alwas a big fan of sonic atlest up to sonic 3 on the sega Iv never relly like the 3D sonic and that includs unleshed
now with the intro out of the way lets get into the core game play this is a 2D side scroler meeing that your going from left to right and up and down mutch like older mario games but unlike mario you are going exstremly fast (exsept for sum ponts whar sonic team falls back into thare retardation and stick you in a area that takes you 8 minits to figer out whar the fuck your sapost to go and then after that it takes to another 5 minets to get thare) witch is what youv come to know and love abut sonic
the controls are simplistec to the pont al you need to use is the right analog stick and the A button this is bolth good and bad its good becuse its essy to lern but bad becuse thars just to mutch to handol for one butten for instens im runing along and I need to hop onto a platform but thars a enamy ner by over a buttomless pit I hit A to jump onto the platform but it regasters as a dash attack thus I kill the enamy and thusly fall to my death I give them props for makeing the controls simpol but thar are 4 core buttons on the 360s controler most of the people getig this game are use to that set up saga shud have desanated a acton for each butten but thats just one small complant
the level desing is a nice thow back with splash hill and casino rode and they all loock great in HD but like I stated befor this is also whar and I quote zero puchuwation "sonic team falls back into lepresed retardation" by makeing sumthing that takes to all your time to figer out whare you need to go when your only haff way thew the LV once again just a minor grip the bonuse LVs show up as you must navagat a falling sonic thew a maze by rotating the maze itself picking up rings, extra time and if its the first time to the bunuse world one of the 7 chaos emarolds and if its not your fist time that a exra lif its fun and with a little triol and eror youl be geting the emarolds the world hub also looks great in HD and is a snap to get to once you chuse a zone toye given a list of 4 LV in witch you can do(the 4th being blacked out untill you beet the first 3) in ay order and you can go to any zone in any order once you complet the first 3 LVs in a zone you can go to the boss fight with robotnic(AKA eggman for yunger fans) then after beeting him you releses the animols and repet the prosses on the next zone simpol yes but still fun
I menchnd relesing animols in the mast paragraph for the sole reson on telling you about the story this is way I give sonic th bigist props in its perust form sonic has one of the most simpol storys robotnic kidnaps animols inorder to turn them into robots and sonic stops him and then thats it no plot twists or anything like that sum people say thats sonic bigist flaw but looks what happens when they trie to give sonic more story then that we gat games like sonic advancher and shadow the hagdehog sonic is not a icon for a new age hes best in his truest form like pac man and megaman
over all I have to say I like this new sonic game its by far the best sonic game in resent years that Iv played and I thick its well werth the 800 microsoft ponts I spent on it will I spend that mutch for ep2 who knows if looks like it just adding on LVs with out fixing the problums I menchoned no but if they do fix them then I just mite so I have to say for thows that just whant a game to pick up and play befor work DL this game its fun and its essy to pic up and drop if you dont like that then dont DL it ether way its a fun game that deservs a play atlest dl the demo a trie it out

you herd me right I sed galactic pretty boy that is what one of the main cast members in this anime is referd to and for good reson to he is as the name inplys a pretty boy but dont let his looks fooly you becuse if you do hel step on you with his gint robot toubarn if you havent alredy gessed from the name drops the anime Im revirewing today is star driver the most fabuluss anime of this season and the newist anime by studio bones
the story is as falows To the south of Japan, there lies a lush green island called Southern Cross Isle. One night, a boy by the name of Takuto Tsunashi washes up on the shore of the island alone. Having swum from the mainland alone and without any possessions, this boy enrolls in the senior high level in the school on the island - Southern Cross High School.
With his bright and positive personality, he starts to mix with various students in the school and builds relationships with many of them, including Wako Agemaki and Sugata Shindou. But this school hides a deep secret. There are sleeping giants hidden under the ground called "Cybuddies".
There are about 20 of these giants, and they are just some of the various secrets kept by everyone on the island: The secret movements of the mysterious organization known as "Kirahoshi Juujidan". The songs of the shrine maidens. And even Takuto himself will soon come to embrace a great secret...
This island in the southern territories surrounded by the blue sea and the blue skies is the stage where the "Eulogy of Youth" filled with love, dreams and friendships, will begin.
im 4 eps into this anime so i have a good feeling on whar its heading and I must say I like it its a funny story and at the same time thares a layer of darknes to it so we know shit will hit the fan and when it duse itl be a big mess for the hole cast
the art is your basic bones art if you watch zmed or elrecka 7 then youl be fermiler with this are not to say its bad infact I love bones art espasholy thare mecha witch since this is a mecha anime is a big facter all the mechs in this anime look relly cool sofare espasholy the leed mecha
the musice is fine with a few exseptions thars this one song that a chariter sings befor and during sum fights that is relly cool and fits relly great as a fight theme but sadly I cant fined it on youtube and as for the op and ends thare not that great not bad but great I find myself skiping it over haff the time
the VA work is good they relly chose good VAs for the cast Miyano, Mamoru prbobly known best as the VA that voiced light from the japanese death note plays the main male Tsunashi, Takuto and I have to say he duse a good job as well as the rest of the cast
over all I have to say this is a watch for mecha and bones fans the story art and music are all good but thars nuthing that relly stands out about star driver beside the odd alius the main chariters hases so I have to give star driver 7 glitering transformations out of 10

thats right after posting the zero revew I notest that I didint have a review for macross, macross 7, macross pluse, or frunter up so Il be posting them tonight thats right you get 4 reviews In one day ofcros Il be combining them into one super post lol becuse I dont what to post three things so lets get right into it first up is the history behind macrosss
the origanol super demanchanol fortress macross anime ared on october 3 1982 and ran for 36 eps ending on Jun 26, 1983 and was derected by Ishiguro, Noboru and besides this his most notasabol project wood have to be Legend of the Galactic Heroes the natoreus 110 ep OVA and the Mechanical Design was dune by Kawamori, Shoji who also derected macross zero and Earth Maiden Arjun witch odly anuph relly exsplans the eco frandly message of zero but evrone els wood probly now his as the Mechanical Designer for elreka seven
now thare are a few stapols of macross that make it difrent from others the first being the way romance is handoled ushaly in macha anime the love story is a second thout whar as its a forthout and its alwas a love triangal and is rarely handeld well the second is music is alwas intracol part of the story and not just a theme and OST with one of the cast members being good at singing and for most of the time a profashanol idol or singer
now with out ferther a due the first macross anime I will be talking about in this massiv macross post will be the origanol SDF macross and I have to say this was one of the macha anime that salitafide the real robot gara after tamino made it with mobil suit gundam the the valkariys witch wer transorming jets that had three modes jet, gerwalk(a jet with arms and legs) and battarod(robot) and even in battrod mode they wer about haff the size of a MS and dispite thare only being grunt Mass protuction units in the hands of a well traing piolt cude do sum relly amazing things and to this day remain as me favret type of macha
now the story is abit stail by todays standerds but I still love it
In 1999, an alien ship crashes on South Atalia Island and makes the human race aware of other life in space. Ten years later, the ship is reconstructed and christened as the SDF-1 Macross. However, on the day of its maiden voyage, an alien race called the Zentraedi make their appearance on Earth, beginning the UN Spacy/Zentraedi war that would change the history of both races forever.
I love the casts dynamic each cariter plays off eachother in a way that makes you relly grow atached to them witch makes its hard when sumthing happens to them witch it duse Im not gana lie thars sumthing that happens in this anime that makes kaminas death seem like nuthing and then thars cast members that you relly wish whood die but just dont
next up will ne the art witch is dated by todays standers it all being old 80s hand drown cels so thows that dont like that youl probly hate SDF macrosses art but it is still varry good art as far as I can remember thar are no WTF moments in it like thare was in gundam atlest for the fighting thare wer sum WTF moments in sum of the non fighing moments like a person randomly apering or disapering
the music is to be ecspected above avreg and for its time was relly good I love the op and ofcorse the iconic my boyfreand is a piolt song sung by minmai in the miss macross ep is relly nice
ofcorse no mater how mutch I like her singing that whont chang the fact minmai is a bitch who thinks nuthing other then herself
so I give SDF macross 10 pinappel salids out of of 10
next up is macross 7 witch till macross plus came out was the derect sequel to SDF macross but since it came out first Il be talking about 7 and all its sequels/speshols firsrt
this is probly my favret macross anime the mecha in this look amasing the vf-19 kai aka the fire valcary as to be my favret type of valkary and niki basara has to be the greates singer of all time for what he acomplashis in this anime and max is by far the greates macross capten and also one of the great mistarys of the world him being nerly 50 but not looking a day ofer 30
35 years have passed since Lynn Minmay had brought peace between the Zentradi and the humans in the events of Macross. Nekki Basara is a guitarist and a singer of the band Fire Bomber. Living in a less-developed part of the flying colony City 7 which is looking for a habitable planet, he composes and sings songs in the belief that music holds a greater power.
During its flight, an unknown alien race appeared and started laying siege upon City 7. However, its attacks are not conventional -- instead of trying to destroy them, they steal what is known as "spiritia", rendering victims unresponsive and zombie-like. During these battles, Basara always goes out into the middle of the warzone, singing his songs and expecting friend and foe to listen and be moved by his music.
and sepicing of the music macross 7 has to have the greates sound track in macros I love all the songs from fire bomber and wood love to acholy have thar records on CD and being a produc of the 90s its not saprising I love this growing up in the 90s myself
now despite this being my favret macross anime thare is sum big problems with it and that wood be in the animation but its not the quolaty thats great its the use of reused animation its relly bad its to the pont that over 80% of the fights are reused I cant tell you how many times Iv seen a valkary destroy a enamy gust to be hit from behind exsplode sending an escap pod out just to be capcherd its relly bad but I dont watch macross 7 for the fights I wach it for the cast
witch is great 2 chariters from SDF macross come back and play saporting rolse one being max and the other being his wife Milia and like in UC gundam they dont overshadow the new cast thow I dont see how anyone cud over shadow niki basara the man is so gun ho about singing it wood put any one to shame so he duse have sum flaws for the most part he remans the same thewout the anime never relly growing up but that in itself was probly a preconseved idea
like SDF macross macross 7 gets 10 badd ass rock solos out of 10
the next macross on my list will be macross 7 dynamite a short 4 ep OVA witch picks up Less than a year after the events that transpired in the Macross 7 TV series, Basara leaves Fire Bomber and travels to the planet Zola. There, he meets a girl named Elma, who is a big fan of Fire Bomber. It is also on this planet where he must once again use his Spiritia powers; this time, to stop an army of poachers and Elma's father Graham from killing a group of space whales travelling within the planetary system.
all the cast come back in this and over all thars not mutch I can talk about this ova its not relly that good nore is it bad infact they cud have just taked it on the end of the anime thow it did have one thing going for it and that wood be the op
in the end i have to give macross 7 dynamite 7 exsplotions out of 10
now we get to arguably the best instolment of macross macross plus I relly dont see why thow yes its looks and sounds great but it was to mutch like top gun for my tasts and I didint relly like any any of the main cast and the plot twist at the end revolving to of the castmembers didint make sence at all becuse of the action of sed cast members erlyer in the OVA
The year is 2040 and the galaxy is flourishing with several colonies and advanced technology. AI is near perfection and the current top idol is the near-completed Virturoid Idol Sharon Apple. All that is missing are her actual feelings, which instead are supplied by Myung Fang Lone. Sharon's debut concert is on planet Eden, where at the same time, fighter pilots Isamu Dyson and Guld Bowman battle over air superiority for the "Supernova Project." Isamu, Guld and Myung were once childhood friends, but after an accident seven years ago, they went their own separate ways. With Myung back in the picture, the old disputes are once again awakened. And when an unstable and illegal AI technique is installed in Sharon, the situation is worsened.
now the one of the two saving grases of this OVA is the singing the op is great like all macross anime
the next saving grace for this OVA also has to to with one of my complants and that is the fights yes I sed it was to mutch like top gun and becuse of that we get sum great fighting and its becuse of this I give macross pluse 6 zentrodie freek outs out of 10
last on my list if macross frontier this is the newist instolment into the franchis and is farly good granted the love triangel was handoled so badly that it even made macross 7s love triangel look good but aside from that evrything els was great the cast thow anoying was handeld well and the music like alwas relly good and F has alot of thow backs to older macrosses with ranka sining my boyfreands a piolet in the miss macross compation just like minmai did and the fighting is great the CG was relly handoled well in this anime and the storys good
After being threatened by extinction at the hands of alien invaders called the Zentradi, humanity undertook the task of guaranteeing itself a future by launching fleets of colony ships into space. On Macross Frontier, one such fleet, high school student Saotome Alto's life is changed forever: the fleet is suddenly attacked by unidentified creatures while he is performing aerial stunts for a concert by the wildly popular idol Sheryl.
Alto quickly finds himself in the cockpit of a new-model fighter struggling to protect Ranka Lee, a young girl he met only hours earlier, from the invaders' swath of destruction. Noting his performance during this incident, the S.M.S. Skull Squadron private military company invites Alto to join their organization, where he continues protecting his friends and Macross Frontier.
and as I sed the music is great aside from macross 7 macross f has my favret OST
so over all I give macross f 10 flying space bugs out of 10
yep another macross review and odly anuph I thout Id be doing this one be for macross 2 but I ges not now lets get right into it macross zero is a prequel to the original macross that also alludes to being tied in with macross F your probably wondering what I meen well thou evry macross in the franchise are caneted sum are caneted more then others like origanol and 7 it being a derect sequel to SDF but with zero I was saprised to see the conection to F witch takes place so mutch farther in the time line and now Im not talking about the fact that the anti-UN forces valcorys look like the VF-28 lusafer but sumthing els that youd relly only get if you whatech bolth zero and F but now onto the story
Taking place one year before the Zentraedi arrive on Earth, Macross Zero chronicles the final days of the war between the U.N. Spacy and anti-U.N. factions. After being shot down by the anti-U.N.'s newest fighter plane, ace pilot Shin Kudo finds himself on the remote island of Mayan, where technology is almost non-existent. While Shin stays on the island to heal his wounds, the tranqulity of the island is shattered by a battle that involves the UN's newest fighter - the VF-0.
by itself I not shore if it stands on its own two legs they way the cast talk about serten things make me feel that youd be better off watching this after you whatch SDF macross or macross DYRL(the movie ver) then go back watching this that way youl know all this info like fold and protocolcuer but as a addetion to the franchuse its relly good I love seeing roy again but this time a little yunger and a little more green around the color
and since wer on the subject of the cast lets get into them I love the cast for the most part thars relly only one cast member that anoys me granted I still like her but she cud have been alil less of a bitch and her name is sara nome one of the leding girls and the reson she anoys me so mutch is becuse shes one of thows tech is the devil type of people backwords its anoying granted I love nacher I love being outside and yes I can see the harm that tech duse to it but that dusint meen that all tech is evil witch is the rut the deracter seemed to go with the story other then that one little problem I like sara as a cast member her modivs thow a bit exstreem at times are well grounded and have reson behind them and her singing voice is great but then agen its a macross anime atlest one cast member is going to be great at singing
becuse without music thar woodint be macross and this one dus not desapont thow thar is a lack of a OP the OST is rely good all the music fits perfectly and sound great by it self espasholy my favret song sung by sara odly anuph I think its laten Im not relly shore but it sounds great
and ofcorse macross zero dusint just sounds great but looks great with a mix of bolth hand drown and CG art this is great to watch in HD and the dog fights are amazingly coreagrafed no sotck animation thow being a 5 EP OVA probly contributs to that as a reson
over all this is a must watch for any macross fan and a highly recamended for the mecha fan thow atlest watch origanol SDF macross first so macross zero gets 10 kaduns out of 10

hey guys its me nick and befor I start with more reviews of the new fall season Id figr Id do a revew on sumthing that I was litaral surching for for 2 years and thats macross II lovers again witch was a 6 ep ova sequel to macross do you remember love (the movie addaptation of the origanol macross anime this ova came out in May 21, 1992 and whent on till Nov 21, 1992 on a 1 a month relese like most ovas and befor I get into this one let me tell you alil about macross ingenarol its one of the real robot anime that came out after gundam and is know best over hear in the US as robotech but robotech was more of a almagamation of 3 anime witch macross was one of them infact it was the first saga apaly named the macross saga witch is even among robotech fans cunsiterd the mest saga of the basterasation that was robotech and with that out of the way let me give you a lil back ground on the story
A.D. 2089 - 80 years have passed since Space War 1 changed the lives of both human and Zentraedi races. Both races are at peace on Earth when a new alien race called the "Marduk" appear within the Solar System. While covering the first battle between the U.N. Spacy and the Marduk fleet, SNN rookie reporter Hibiki Kanzaki discovers Ishtar, an "Emulator" that enhances the Marduk's combat abilities through singing. Hibiki brings Ishtar to Earth to teach her the values of life and culture. Together with ace Valkyrie pilot Silvie Gena, Hibiki and Ishtar must find a way to save Earth from total destruction at the hands of the Marduk leader Ingues.
know Iv herd so mutch about macross 2 mostly bad things befor watching it but in truth it dusint deserv the shit it gets(for the most part) dont get me wrong this isint the beast anime of all time but it isint the worst ether in fact it duse sumthing that Iv never seen in a macross anime and thats give closer on the love triangel witch is sumthing that has alwased pissed me off granted it duse this by not ignolagin the love triangel to the end whar the 2 chariters that didint show any intrest in each other got to geather out of no ware but still it was intaresting
now the big gimic about macross is its music macross and music are like congoyned twins you never see them apart and macross 2 is like the rest the music is great I love the OP and ending and evrything in between granted this is erly 90s music so its not gana be K-on type music infact its more like origanol macrosses music 80s style pop with sum rock and sorry guys no fire bomber lol(injock for macross 7 fans) but still varry good
next up on my list of things to talk about is the art and animation now as I sed erlyer this is a erly 90s OVA and the art shows that all handrown cels and I most say i love the art but for you people that cant stand the hand drown style Id like to say that you probly will hate the art but still you shud give this a tre its relly good but I know that whont happen becuse people like me oldfags as wer called on 4chan and other anime bords are a dieing breed of anime fan but the thing is even use fans of the older anime can still see the newer stuff in a good light even if it looks to cleen (witch is sumthing I think shood be changed in newer anime ) so why cant you newer fans do the same and see this art for what it is sumones hard work becuse thats what I seen ever fight seen in this OVA is one of a kind no stock animation (sept for the OP ending and the eye ceach) the chariters are properly paportioned and move without any cut or jiters in the animation
now the last thing on my list is the cast and chariters I love bolth the japanes VAs do thare job perfectly and relly mad me beleve the motavations of the chariters its sad that this OVA got sutch a atroshus US dub infact this is war macross 2 gets most of its heat from in the US dub it dusint sound like anyone relly cared if this sounded good or not witch was a damn shame so if this review makes you what to give macross 2 a trie first off good luck and second watch it in the japanese dub
over all I liked this OVA I spent 2 yers looking for this thinking it was going to be shit only whanting to watch it becuse I whant to finish all the macross anime along with the gundam but once I acholy found it and watched it it exses my exspectatons of what a desent OVA is let a long the exspectations I hade for it witch wer this is going to be the longest 3hours of my life but no it blasted right past that and know i hold this up as a good OVA even by todays standers hell the story and plot are avholy better then most OVAs now adays that parly qualafy as OVA in my opinyon so im giveing this 8 macross canons out of 10
but one word of worning I wasint jocking when I sed I was looking for this for 2 years this had to be the hardest OVA to finedthat I ever inconterd atlest for thouws without netlix thow I dont know if its still on thare so if your going to go look for this I wish you the best of luck
