#77 Nendoroid Saber Lily [Fate/unlimited Codes]

by 01:27
Its October people! Besides my daily dosages of anime each day, I recently received my pre-order since August. Finally, ITS HERE~!

For those who have yet to watch or barely know the Fate franchise, here's a small summary/synopsis on this nendroid's history;

Originally from the Fate/stay Night series, an arcade-style game was born with an all-star duel between characters of the Fate series. One can even use Saber, a saber class fighter, and defeat her enemies with her famous Noble Phantasms such as Excalibur and Avalon. Unlocking this form, Saber Lily, can only be done after defeating all characters using Saber Alter, the darker side of Saber.

Sittin...I mean standing pretty in the Nendoriod box is,
Good Smile Company Nendroid Series #77, Saber Lily~!

Fairy Tail - フェアリーテイル

by 21:49

We would like a moment of silence for the ending of the Rave series...

OKAY! That's enough mourning! Now moving onto more recent events!

I was disappointed when the final chapter was issued for Rave, missing all those sword-combos and rave stones along with the cool storyline. But, there's a new drug in town people! For you dyslexic and illiterate otakus, rejoice for the adaptation of the overnight sensation manga, Fairy Tail ~!

For the manga, I harbor special feelings towards it (thus, making this post biased. sry) Ever since MMORPG came to existence, I've always chosen the mage/sorcerer (or speed-based) character. Not because of the cool clothing and joining a guild, but also adrenaline when casting the great massacre spells! Muahahaha.. (sry, out of topic there)

Anyways, lets move onto a short summary of this anime;

  • Lucy is a 17-year-old girl, who wants to be a full-fledged mage. One day when visiting Harujion Town, she meets Natsu, a young man who gets sick easily by any type of transportation. But Natsu isnt just any ordinary kid, he's the legendary "Salamander" and a member of one of the world's most infamous mage guilds: Fairy Tail. Together, they unravel the mysteries of magic in this "fairy tale" wonderland.

Darker Than Black S2 - Ryuusei no Gemini (流星の双子)

Rejoice humans! The contractor wars have just begun! After waiting for 2 years, SEASON 2 is back with a smashing and cliffhanger ending!

And for those who aren't into post-apocalyptic or supernatural powers, hopefully this will make you a little interested! But for a short summary for season 2 first!

  • Two years have passed since Hei and Yin escaped the Syndicate after the events of the first season. Making their way to Russia, Hei encounters a young girl named Suou Pavlichenko, whose family is gradually pulled into the war between contractors and various intelligence factions. Meanwhile, Misaki Kirihara has quit her position in Foreign Affairs to begin her own investigations into Hei, the Contractors and the Syndicate.

Vocaloid - The Sounds of Tomorrow

EDIT: Links to selected songs added at the bottom. For albums, please torrent it yourself or purchase a copy and support Hatsune-sama

I've been seeing a lot of confusion between the term, Vocaloid, especially with people who just heard the word. Some ask what anime or OVA is this, meaning they haven't bothered to actually google about it. Hopefully this post would clear up a few things along with a short summary...

Kobato - こばと

by 22:31
First thing I noticed about this series was the manga studio,"Clamp" as the creators. Apart from their most notable series like Cardcaptor Sakura and xxxHolic, I was expecting another art/character design like Syaoran and Sakura. Fortunately, I was mistaken! (means its a good thing)

For those who haven't heard, read about it, or just thought it was another shoujo anime, here's a small summary;

  • Hanato Kobato is a sweet and perky girl, but extremely naïve about the world. She has a mission to fill a mysterious bottle with the suffering from people's hearts so her wish to go a certain place can be granted. However, she must not fall in love with a particular boy she works with and whose heart she must heal….

| Fate/EXTRA |

Finally, the idea of role playing Shiro managed to get through. And low-and-behold, we have an RPG coming up! A Fate RPG... how bliss....


We've always debated (and still are) on what would it be like to have Saber as your personal servant? Well, she technically is, as you are bound to her by master/servant contract on the first night you met in any game of Fate. Except you are stuck to the arcade type versions like Fate/Unlimited Codes, which kills the feeling of "owning" her, ya know?

From the screen shots, it definitely looks like a Persona 4 to me, along with the battle concept. And that's a good thing people... (go play P4 to find out how good!)

So incorporating this idea ain't too bad. A free dynamic environment with power-ups (hopefully) like in FF series?... kinda nice. Having it simulate FF is wishful thinking as I can only pray the graphics are upped a lot more.
