Summer Wars! (サマーウォーズ)

by 22:02

When timid eleventh-grader and math genius Koiso Kenji  is asked by older student and secret crush Natsuki to come with her to her family's Nagano home for a summer job, he agrees without hesitation. Natsuki's family, the Jinnouchi clan, dates back to the Muromachi era (1336 to 1573), and they've all come together to celebrate the 90th birthday of the spunky matriarch of the family, Sakae.

That’s when Kenji discovers his "summer job" is to pretend to be Natsuki's fiance and dance with her at the birthday celebration. As Kenji attempts to keep up with Natsuki's act around her family, he receives a strange math problem on his cell phone which, being a math genius, he can't resist solving.

As it turns out, the solution to the mysterious equation causes a bizarre parallel world to collide with Earth, and it's up to Kenji and his new fake family to put reality back in order.
Honestly, I had no idea what this show was about. No clue at all.

Until the results of the Tokyo Anime Fair 2010 Animation Awards was presented, with Summer Wars weeping a total of 6 awards!
  • Animation of the Year

Seiyuu Comparisons - Winter 2010 (#2)

by 12:39

Yes, this was my expression when I heard Haruhi movie was #7 at the box office!
Yes, this was my expression when I saw the Nendoroid Azunyaa~
Yes, this is my expression as I post another shocking comparison report...
This is report number 2! about various seiyuu voices airing during the winter-soon-to-be-spring  season. I'll be touching a few (okay, so it's not a few...) of animes from the autumn, since i'm running out of seiyuus =P (looks like it will be a monthly post from now onwards)

Hope you won't end up with the same expression as Sawako at the end of this post...

New Anime - High School of the Dead

by 11:57
Update: Its official. HOTD TV will start airing on the 7th month of 2010 during the Summer 2010 (was expecting 6th of the 6th month "6/6" though)

Update: PV link by Kadokawa Channel and character profiles at website

"Let the infection, begin....."
A mysterious, lethal disease is on the loose worldwide, resulting in a catastrophic death rate of humanity, and the increasing rise of attacks, caused by the living dead.

In Japan, several high school students and a school nurse have banded together to escape Fujimi High School shortly after it was attacked by zombies. The group now attempts to figure who or what was responsible for this plague, and in the meantime, attempt to survive the present apocalypse.

Its finally animated! WOOHOO! アニメの力~!

In my opinion, one the most realistic and apocalypse-state-world manga out there. Simply because I love zombie or an apocalypse world and Left 4 Dead series. 

It's like a Left 4 Dead (huge fan!) anime but more focused on surviving an urban environment with an undead city against the protagonists.

Figures Ordered (Q1-2010)

by 12:39

From gundam to nendoroid, puchi to PVC, model kits to macross, it's been quite a strain on Mr. Wallet for the past few months. Who said any hobby was cheap anyway?

Nonetheless, I have no regrets (like others) once the figure/model is sitting on our shelf, staring at us.

I don't claim to know all about figures or the different versions and what makers are good. My collection is just starting to grow as I was closed-closet type until last year. Since then, my treasures have grown quite considerably. For the new year, I thought I'd spend on my self on a few figures, here and there.
