    The Re-Birth of AwsomeJapan 

    rebirth

    The Deal 

    So, it turns out I’m not (entirely) dead. Myself and AJ (henceforth refered to as ‘Ohime-Sama’) made a deal, the terms of which involve me starting posting again and the exchange of a jam filled muffin. Which I proceeded to drop…

    Okay, first of all, any and all promises I made before are null and void. This includes the promise about Touhou, which I have now deemed impossible to 1cc in the span of a single lifetime. I may or may not be covering Portal 2 at some point, most likely as soon as I actually get a change to try co-op with someone I know to some extent. BTW I’m waiting on your invite Ohime-sama.

      What my new name is ‘Ohime-Sama’?! >< God, I'm going to portal you to the Moon! (bad pun) Anyways….Welcome Back!

      • Aethri 7:54 pm on May 11, 2011 Permalink | Reply

        Aethri is a play on the latin word ‘aetherius’, which can mean ‘celestial’. By sending me to the moon (a celestial object) all you are doing is sending me into my element. Furthermore, how will you shoot the portal? The Aperture Science Handheld Portal Device was sucked out to the moon, and was one of the first things to be sucked out, none-the-less. Your move, Ohime-sama.

      What! no! Your Touhou promise is now in void! 😦 NO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

      • Aethri 8:02 pm on May 11, 2011 Permalink | Reply

        To elaborate on ‘null and void’, I mean I won’t be completing a 1cc and posting it on this blog. Ephasis on this… (Ohime-sama can probs guess what I mean there).

        • Aethri 8:07 pm on May 11, 2011 Permalink

          btw 1cc may well be impossible for me with the exception of Mountain of Faith (with Reimu B or Marisa B) and Imperishable Night (with anything but Sakuya/Remilla)

        • awsomejapan 9:55 pm on May 11, 2011 Permalink

          Please do! I need to learn some techniques to improve my um.. rubish skills in
          Touhou.
          The game Is quit hard! just played one of the touhou’s.

        • Jeff123 2:29 pm on May 12, 2011 Permalink

          So whats Touhou? Is it some kind of japanese fighting game?

    • Aethri 2:56 pm on May 12, 2011 Permalink | Reply

      @Jeff123 Touhou Project is a doujin series of danmaku bullet hell games created by Team Shanghai Alice, which consists of the programmer ZUN, the composer ZUN, the team alcoholic ZUN, the scenario writer ZUN. It occasionally works with some beta testers named ant, Fang, and (you guessed it) ZUN. It DOES have 2 fighting games called ‘Immaterial and Missing Power’ and ‘Scarlet Weather Rhapsody’, which are the result of a collaboration with Tasogare Frontier. SWR also has an expansion called Hisotensoku (unconfirmed English fanname: Unthinkable Natural Law).

    “Touhou 13 – Ten Desires” unvailed by ZUN Studios 

    (Finally, i’f made a new post….took long enought)

    Yesterday, ZUN (the developer of Touhou) officially reviled their next game “Touhou 13 – Ten Desires” which is part of the long (and I mean long!) running series of the Touhou doujin games. Like always (like having a heads and tails on each side of a coin), there will be a demo of this suicidaly hard shoot ‘em up game, in the next Reitaisai event which will be held on March 13th. We do not know the full list of playable character in the demo yet but the following have been confirmed Sanae, Youmu, Reimu and Marisa. In the reveal, ZUN did not state when the full version, will be available.

    And now the um…. story if you can call it a story:

    “A multitude of spirits suddenly appear. They are the type known as Divine Spirits. Seeing as how this event cannot be left ignored, the young girl goes out to investigate.”

    Source AnimeNewsNetwork

    This is what i call a prime example of um.....a menu ah.....thats all ,but i have got to say, the girl in the right looks realy cute! 🙂

    Woh! So many little dots! So many bullets! So many Game Overs! ....Don't make me say "So many" again.

    When i think about it, their is a lot of stat bars to look at (can you even look at it, while playing this crazy game?. I wonder what she is saying...hm.....mabye i don't want to know.

    So what do your guys think about the 13th sequel of this game? is it even woth a Sequel , or are the developers just milking the series? Please comment below. And please, leave a vote on the poll.

    And i know Aethri, (one of the Authors of this site) will have something to say.

    How to get a Valentine’s in 5 easy Steps! 

    VALENTINE'S WILL YOU BE MINES?

    Valentines day oh Valentines day will you grant these leechorus (is that even a word) perverts a Valentine’s this year?Ohh no you won’t?..I guess I will have to aid them I guess huh?Well well you bastards Valentine’s Day is just around the corner and just what the hell are you doing Ehhh??Get out there and get yourself some damn chocolate you bastard!! >:O…Yes it Is I Megane~San who will give you the tips of  how to get your self a Valentine and guide that young creature into your lover’s embrace <33…Where you will enter the worlds of  lovers and become one like some freaky fusion like Dragon Ball Z or something..Yes Yes I will give you the Allure’s Charm and you only need to be level 20 to use it…But you have to have “Non creepy Otaku” skill equipped or else it won’t work!…So pause that gal game,Put down the PFP and stop eying that Figure cause I will show you how to get the opposite sex in this “HOW TO” guide on Valentines :3

     

    STEP ONE:BE ATTRACTIVE/MANLY

     

     

    Manly Man

     

    For starters you’ll have to be manly..As there is no way in hell you’ll ever get a woman with that flabby body of yours..You’ll need rugged good looks that’ll make women swoon at the sheer sight of your manliness..You’ll need a beard that rivals the manliest man of all men Chuck Norris…You’ll need a pocket with endless amount of disposible income as ladies happiness are not free.. You’ll need to have at least a eight pack abs..Instead of that six pack tucked away in the back of your fridge..That you drink to drown your sorrows away..You’ll also need to be brave as to fight of hordes of other male suiters who seem keen on getting with your woman of choice…You’ll also need allot of EXP  soo get to grinding those weak monsters and level up a little as you’ll need all of that for your latest conquest!

     

    Girly Girl

    As for the females looking for their male suiters….You’ll only need three things to get them into your clutches…..For One you’ll need Booobs ……Two you’ll kinda  Not wanna be a sexy trap…..As men do not like sexy traps once the clothes are off!!………And finally Three you’ll need to not be a manly girl as men need to be the alpha person..The person who controls everything..So make him a sammich or something and let him believe he’s controlling you as that is what guys like….Ohh yeah did I also forget you’ll also need to tell them how strong they are and how manly they are..As they worked soo hard trying to be manly for your sake why don’t you acknowledge that ehh?

     

     

    STEP TWO:RESCUE YOUR LOVER FROM SOME SORT OF PERIL!

    I'll Save you!!!

     

    Ok plan some kind of kidnapping..Pay off some random street hoods to snatch up your Valentine…Make sure they are the toughest of the toughest..The ones that’ll make a baby cry by just saying “Gooogooo Gaaagagaa”..Yes those kinds..The ones you’d avoid by taking the long way home cause you don’t even want to cross their paths…Yep yep….Make sure they kidnap you Valentine and begin the rescue promptly!!Make sure you make this rescue as flashy as ever..Make sure you attack the kidnappers with your very owned special attacks..And also make sure you shout them out when your doing them as to add to the effect of saving that special one!

    STEP THREE:MAKE CHOCOLATES FOR YOUR VALENTINES


    Trust me when you make Valentine’s day chocolate’s for your beloved its all the more sweeter as it comes from the heart..But screw that you can’t bake for shit anyway right..Just buy the crap at you local store or something along with a Teddybear and hand it off…You coming out of the pockets should enough right…

     
    STEP FOUR:ACT ALL TSUNDERE WHEN YOUR AROUND YOUR VALENTINES

    "It's n-n-not like I m-m-made it for you or anything"

    Tsundere is the most cutest of all traits…It is a sure fire way to win the heart of your Valentines..If my Valentines pulled a Taiga on me I’d sooo lose it….And that’s why you will need to study up on your various anime with characters with trait.First of all it’s the best trait to convey your utter love for that person…Starting off all TsunTsun……Then BAM!!!!! throw in a little DereDere to mix it all up..They’ll never know what hit them….This of course is a women’s secret weapon and can be used at all times..It can be turned on and off at a moments notice as if you have a split personality or something.Hmmm but what about the Guys?Can they not Be Tsundere as well…Can they not show their hot and cold love for their female Valentines??Fear not guys that trait is just as attractive in guys as it is in girls!

    Guys can be Tsundere as well..As I am a fine example of it..I don’t show my feelings much and I act all cold all the time but I will be lovey dovey with the one I like when the time calls for it hehe..Yes Guys You can hide your feelings all you want she’ll still know how much you love her,She’ll know that you secretly worship the ground she walks on as all tsundere’s do for their lovers…So act all TsunTsun for the sake of you love then throw in the DereDere but wait not that Dere save that for later will ya? .___.

     

    STEP FIVE:DESTROY ALL COMPETITION THAT DEARS GETS IN YOUR WAY OF EVERLASTING LOVE >:I

    He's Mine!

    How dare they have the audacity of even liking the same person that you love..Do they know nothing of the bond you and your Valentine created through the little time you had?You should erase them,let them cease to exist as they are just ruining your love with that special someone……Now I won’t tell what method you should use [cough,cough] kidnap them and hide their bodies..>_> Cause I wouldn’t know of such things hehe…And well if you can’t be with your valentines you then no one else should be ether right..As you and your Valentines are meant to be together forever and just why won’t

    Your mines and only mines .___.

    Anyone understand your plight?……Maybe you should erase your Valentine then He/she will forever be with you right?That seems like a brilliant plan no one will ever notice it was you that indeed killed them..You’d be the last person they’d expect that would do such a horrible vile thing!………..I only kid please don’t kill your Valentine as it is the wrong thing to do..Kill them when your married and on your last ropes of insanity and cannot understand why you like the bastard in the first place.And also decided to have a couple kids down the line and somehow can’t even find time to watch your favorite anime anymore.That’s the best time to kill them I believe…..Well I hope this guide helps each and everyone of you ronry bastards..I can say this cause I am ronry too ;A;..”Then Megane~San how will this work if it hasn’t for you?”……..T____T don’t question me you fools you know nothing of my work and shall continue to know nothing godammit!!!I’m ronry cause I choose to be this is my lifestyle choice ok and by under no circumstances will I stay a ronry otaku forever..It’s n-n-n-not like I want a valentines amyway >///>!!Ufff!!..I don’t care anyway it’s your choice if you want to use this guide..If you don’t want to try this guide then you shall be and forever will be

    ALONEZ FOREVAHZ

    Till then peeps Merry Christmas and Happy Kwanza!……….Wait wut?

    My little bit on “Yumekui Merry” 

    (Sorry for late post, i have been very busy for the past few days!)

    My little bit on “Yumekui Merry”. Yumekui Merry is a fantasy based manga & anime. Only 4 eps have been released to date. The original goodness was made by Ushiki Yoshitaka

    Lets have a little peek at the synopsys:

    Yumeji Fujiwara, a young male student like any other, gained the power to see the aura of other people’s dreams, and is able to predict what kind of dream they will have the following night, after an event that occurred 10 years ago. Since then, he started to have weird dreams with cats following him for an unknown reason, where he learns thanks to the boss of the cat army, John Doe, that his body is needed to access the real world. One day, as he was about to come back home after his errands, a mysterious girl falls on top of him. This girl, called Merry Nightmare, is actually a dream demon, who’s searching for a way to come back in her world. As Yumeji decides to help her, the gate to the world of dreams opens again, this time in full daylight. She appears in the daydream world and wards off the Dream Demon “Chaser John Doe” looking for an answer to how to get back to her world. It seems as if John Doe knows something about Merry.

    From just reading the info of this anime, i thought it was going to be all serious. Well it turned out to be quit fun (well from the eps i have seen so far). The development of the anime has been very slow in my eyes. fanservice is over flowing out of this anime (@_@). Animation is top spec, with so-so characters.

    I can say the the original manga is top notch in quality. But i will not buy the manga yet, i have to see if it is worth it from watching the rest of the anime (But i am a sucker for cute anime girls, so i will proberly get it no mater what)

    Kitty YO DUDES, DON

    So my conclusion is that, i think this anime has huge potainal , the characters make you LOL, animation is on the balls eye. But don’t ecspect it to be the anime of all anime’s

    And a bit of Omake for my Awesome readers!

    Kitty: OH %$£&! I THINK IT JUST WENT UP MY…… (guess what went up his IT? Please comment below!)

    So what do you guys think of this anime so far! Please comment below.

    My little bit on “Infinite Stratos” 

    My little bit on “Infinite Stratos”. Infinite Stratos first started off as a light novel then into a manga, and know an anime. Infinite Stratos is engraved in stone to be a 12 episode anime (only 4 eps have been released)

    Lets have a look at the synopsys first:

    In the near future, a Japanese scientist engineers a powered exoskeleton called “Infinite Stratos” (IS). Possessing technology and combat capabilities far more advanced than any other weapon system, the IS threatens to destabilize the world. Faced with such an overpowering weapon, the nations of the world enact the “Alaska Treaty”, which states that IS will never be used for military combat and that existing IS technology must be equally distributed to all nations, to prevent any one nation for dominating the others. The introduction of the IS does however have a major effect on society. As IS can only be operated by women, the power balance between men and women is broken, with women coming to dominate society over men.

    Ten years after the first IS were introduced, the world has entered a new age of peace. The peace is shattered, however, by an unexpected discovery. A 15 year old Japanese boy, named Ichika Orimura, is discovered to be capable of operating an IS. Realizing the potential, Ichika is forced by the Japanese government to attend the prestigious Infinite Stratos Academy, an international academy where IS pilots from all over the world are trained. Thus his busy school life surrounded by girls begins.

    This anime has a very generic harem story line (but hay I love generic Chocó bars :)), based of the eps I have seen. The story has been presented in very classic harem genera kind of way (is it bad to be surrounded by hundreds of girls…hm hm…). The story may be 50/50 in the best of times; it makes up for this in the great animation quality in the battles scenes and for the cute anime character designs. And this in turn makes it a decent anime series to goggle your eyes at for 30 odd mins on.

    Of all the characters show at this early stage of this anime that I’m Likening quit a bit is Huang Lingyin. But my mind is still open at the moment, to see who my fav is. Houki Shinonono is lining up to quit a nice character

    I have decided that I will be getting volume one of this Manga and i will review it as well (soon….), in the review I will compare how similar the Manga is to the anime and how different it is. (If thats the case)

    A bit of Omake for my lovely/ pervy guys or..... girls @_@

    (Thats what i looked like when i first saw a bra [i thought it was a hat, LOL]… well kind like that but a bit more OMG faced)

    So the conclusion is that if you are into harem series (stuff like that) you are in luck (BINGO!) But if don’t, why don’t you just give it a try? (You may like it? Or maybe it will change the way you think of humanoid robotics?….)

    What do you thnk of the anime so far? comment below.

    Vocaloid2-The Popular 

    Vocaloid is done, now we need the main bulk, the Vocaloid2 era that really made Vocaloid popular. This time I’m not going to cover the first, named Sweet Ann, because she never really left the ground unfortunately. So, we will start with the girl known as number “01”.

    Miku Hatsune, the World's Virtual Diva.

    If you know Vocaloid, you know Hatsune Miku, the second release of Vocaloid2, and the mascot of Vocaloid. She’s also known as “The World’s Virtual Diva”, despite only singing in Japanese (though it looks like she’ll be getting English software soon). She was released on 31st August 2007, and later her voice split into 6 “Appends”, each with a slightly different tone, and marked with the symbol “01”. This means she really is the jack-of-all-songs. However, she really doesn’t excel in anything, and her childish voice can be a major put off. Her voice works well with Luka’s, Rin’s, and Kaito, but tends to fail if done poorly with Len or Gakupo, and occasionally Meiko. Odds are, if another Vocaloid has sung it, she has too. The only exception I can think of is Meiko’s “Honey”. Also, she’s a serious flamewar magnet, since she finds a way to be shipped with almost every Vocaloid (I’ve seen Miku/Kaito, Miku/Luka, Miku/Len, Miku/Teto… The list goes on). Her original voice (a.k.a. Default Append) can be heard here.

    Rin and Len Kagamine's official boxart.

    Of course, what animesque thing is complete without a resident pair of siblings? Actually, it’s debatable whether the high voiced 14-year-old Japanese singers Kagamine Rin and Len are related or not, but it’s generally agreed they’re either twins or mirror imaged (“Kagamine” means “Mirrored Sound”). They’re both marked “02” , the female Rin on Right and male Len on Left (ignore the image) come from the same provider, so they work together brilliantly. They were released on 27th December 2007, and later had an update called “Act 2” released due to pronunciation problems. Since then, they’ve been announced to have individual “Appends” in the works, like Miku, though they only have 3 confirmed types so far. Len’s Append is set for release December this year! They’re generally paired together, though some use them to tie up the looser ends. Both Rin and Len are markedly more difficult to use than Miku, and Len is considered to be one of the most difficult Vocaloids to work with, since his voice is already modified slightly. They can be heard singing together here.

    Gakupo, the Dancing Samurai

    Next is Japanese singer Kamui Gakupo. Released on 31st July 2008, he’s known for having the softest male voice of the Japanese vocaloids (Which is only Len and Kaito, mind you). It was based off the international singer Gackt, and also included a program for vocal accompaniment and synthesizing phenom data. He can fit in almost anywhere Kaito can, and has what can be called the best voice quality of the Vocaloids. He can be heard singing here.

     

     

     

    Luka in all her glory.

    And, I’ll finish off on a Bilingual Vocaloid released on 30th January 2009, Megurine Luka. A lower female voicebank suited to moodier genres like Jazz and Opera. She works well with most Vocaloids, both English and Japanese. Her Japanese is nigh-perfect, but she’s a touch lacking in her English dictionary, and has a strong Japanese accent at all times (Not that I dislike it). There’s surprisingly and unfortunately little to say about her, since she’s technically still breaking into mainstream Vocaloids. But she’s having more luck that the brand new LILY, luckily. She can be heard singing in higher Japanese here, and lower Japanese with hints of English here.

    And for the art:

    That's everyone covered so far.

     

    And just for flavor:

    Gakupo's face made me lol... Not sure why.
