    “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.

    Got Bored… Touhou 8: Imperishable Night FinalA For Fun and Profit 

    I got bored trying to figure out Sakuya’s spellcards, so I did a practice run of FinalA in IN with the only team who has unlocked it. Enjoy, you patient bastards. It’s not great, but it’ll do for now, ne? (The fun part starts at 5:10)

    And just for the fact I kinda like putting a random image in each post, my team in that vid.

    Chen's a bit too happy for a cat about to run into water.

    Reimu Hakurei and Yukari Yakumo, with Yukari's shikigami Ran in the background, and Ran's shikigami Chen too.

    My little chinwag on [C] Control: The Money Of Soul And Possibility 

    (I’m back guys, did you think i was dead?)

    Well after 2 long and mind filling years, we finally see that the great Kenji Nakamura has returned, to bring a brand new and all original anime project “[C] Control”. This is big news to Trapeze and Mononoke fans alike. All of his anime’s have been a great watch to absorb into my retinas, he is just fantastically talented at directing, out of the box anime’s while using CGI in an imaginative ways beyond believe. This gives the watcher the OH MY GOD impression/factor and only genius can re produce this again and again, he gives a very psychoactive factor to the playing field of the great but messed up world of anime.

    could not find the mononke anime Nakamura made, so you have to deal with this one

    In 2007, the release of Mononoke blatantly in broad daylight showed his breathtaking way of presenting the way people struggled through life (And this is dame hard to do, believe me). He is not only breathtaking he is mind-blowingly good at maximising and pouring out pure/virgin/untated meteor shower of blood pumping, heart beating awsomness (It’s so good, I had to miss out the “E”!) OK guys I was going a bit over board on that last sentence (or was I) but he is just that good. But anyway back onto the rollercoaster of a chinwag that I have just started… It really amazes me how he did this on a very limited quality of animation, in my eyes, it is just overwhelming how he does this. This is why I will love his work compared to all does Hollywood directors (except some) using the top CGI and film technique as scapegoats. I’m not saying, I don’t love all that eye candy, it is just they are using it to disguise all the trashy scrip’s they have written (dame, they get paid enough to write something a bit good at least :o).

    The man him self! I wish they made a wall scroll of his manly face! 🙂

    Well onto 2009 we see the release of Trapeze, and I have got to say Kenji used this show as a tentative/tasty (why “tasty” you say, well I was munching on a cake when I wrote this) trail-and-error test. To see how far he could use his [crazy] imagination and I got to say um… words cannot explain it! Well if any of you have no idea what is Trapeze (maybe all of you?), well basically the great Nakamura, interfused live-action environments and actors as a framework with a composite of vibrant colours. And again this animation shows the Nakamura Factor! But I have got to say, how I love how he takes risks on every animation project he does. But some people would say, it feels like someone flicked an elastic band of WTF at them. But I don’t care; everyone has their own opinion on everything (that’s the same with me! ¬_¬). But I have to say this show had its low and high notes, you see, I said it!

    Well anyway, I will F5 my mind back onto the main subject [C] Control: The Money of Soul and Possibility trailer! (I took long enough). Before I go on, I have to speak my mind (not like I always speak my mind ¬_¬), why “C” for a title name? Oh I know why, it’s the Nakamura Factor all over again! (You never saw that one coming did you). Well-well from watching the small snippet of a taster of a trailer (more like a teaser then a trailer), it looks like he has descended from his last Mario level of craziness to something different altogether. All the colourful backgrounds are gone and his artistic factor has poved away! But this project has been replaced with a more sturdy and easy on the eye design. Secretly, he has overlaid a small filter of Nakamura on it (all I have to say Nakamura is back in the house!) From the trailer it looks much cleaner and compact (like an iPhone “why did I type this?”) compared to last creations. This anime’s main focus is suppose to be full blown action (dame, I’m getting flash backs of the “terminator”. Good times-good times.) Man oh man, my head is just hurting, just thinking of how Nakamura going to place his Awsomeness/epiceness [/craziness] (no “E”, it’s to epic to have an “E”) with this new type of animation (what do you think of his new approach, my Awsome readers?) Never less, he is going to make this anime project more flash, bang then he has ever done before. With his rich and chocolate covered storytelling and new type of anime design he has gone with, crazy story telling. This is going to end up being the highlight of the year! I’m telling you! Additionally, his inclusion of a very sensitive subject that is normally a taboo to talk about let alone make an anime about (well in the past it was). This will be a eye opener! I’m telling you. (Again)

    Does symbols on the top gives me crazy ideas (well the middle one looks like a ear and the first one on the left lookes like a um...., well what do you think it is readers? Please comment below)

    Well at this early stage of this anime project, I’m very optimistic that this anime project, will make the NoitaminA Team reach the top of the mountain again after their fall in profits (for the last couple of years). But heck, I don’t care if it ends up being rubbish. I will be happy just to see his name in the credits as a Nakamura fan myself! 🙂 Just had to add this, Mononoke was the best reviewed and best selling anime project the NoitaminA Team has ever done. (Hm, this new project could give the company a Déjà vu effect)

    Well here is the synopsys:

    The Japanese government was rescued from the brink of financial collapse by the Sovereign Wealth Fund. For its citizens, however, life has not improved, and unemployment, crime, suicide, and despair are rampant. Kimimaro, raised by his maternal grandmother after the disappearance of his father and the death of his mother, is a scholarship student whose only dream is to avoid all this and live a stable life. One day, however, he meets a man who offers him a large sum of money if he’ll agree to pay it back. From then on his fate is radically altered as he’s drawn into a mysterious area known as “The Financial District.”

    [C] Team:

    Director – Kenji Nakamura (worked on Ayakashi, Bakeneko arc and also on Mononoke, Trapeze)

    Series Composition – Noboru Takagi (worked on Baccano! and also on Durararar!! [how many ra’s was it?])

    Original Character Design – Mebae (worked on Tailenders)

    Animation Character Design – Takashi Hashimoto (worked on Mononoke and also on Trapeze)

    Chief Animation Director[s] – Takashi Hashimoto – Akira Takada (they have worked on Haibane Renmei and also on Drararararararaarrar!! [ahhhh! Dame so many ra’s])

    Well onto my conlustion of this wordy post. Well any of you who have seen Mr Nakamura’s work, will proberly like this but in my mind i think any anime fan will love this intersing show.

    And a bit of omak for my lovely readers:

    Dame, Nakamura in ninja mode!

    scientist: i know you want a blow! ^_^ (be very-very afriad)

    Please leave a comment guys on, what you think of the post? And also please leave a vote in the poll about the post! 🙂

      Why is the image in the middle of the post that of Ghibli’s Mononoke Hime?

      I have not seen any of this guy’s work so I’ll just have to take your word for it. The financial angle strikes me as an adult kind of content which I am very interested in, so I will look forward to this.

    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?

    Tags: Dragon Ball   

    OH DEAR GOD NOT ANOTHER ONE!! :< 

    Fail Movie is Fail =/

    As if the first heap of trash  (Dragon Ball  Evolution) wasn’t enough They decide it’s ok to make a new one..As to pat their backs and say “The first one wasn’t bad at all,we just need to make a newer one and it’ll be better we know it!”…Seriously their making these movies to draw in the fans right?So why isn’t anything in that damn movie like what the fans remember it to be?..It just seems like they slapped the name Dragon ball  on it and hope the idiotic fans waste their cash to watch that sack of shit..When I saw  this (free of course on HBO) I somehow wanted my money back =/….This movie was horrible and when I mean horrible I mean horrible horrible..Not that horrible when you lose a limb or something..No no even worse than that ohh gawd I felt that my eyes were destroyed and the fact that I wear glasses only amplified the fact of the matter! :<..IF YOU HAVE ANY LOVE FOR YOUR BRAIN OR YOUR EYES DO NOT WATCH THIS MOVIE FOR THE SAKE OF THEM!!!:O

    New Goku apparently =/

    Now they’re “Trying” to reboot the movie series currently called  “Dragon Ball Reboot” .I mean it’s cool and all to make movies based off anime (always a bad idea >_>) but you have to pick and choose the ones that seem the easiest to recreate.Ones that need hi-speed fighting and massive powers and plantes blowing up is a bad one to recreate don’t ya think?..I mean taking a franchise and changing everything about is except the name is always a good idea right…I mean come on Goku as young horny highschool student trying to get some of that sweet sweet ChiChi ass is sooo much like how the anime was..Not to mention the absence of a certain no nose bald headed guy [coughs] Krillian! Ohh and instead of a great ape we get a werewolf >_>……

    This says it all =/

    I would love to believe that this new movie will be good..But I can’t it,will be bad..It was bad before they made it..It was bad when they heard of something called Dragon Balls and thought to themselves..”Now why would they make a cartoon about the balls of a Dragon?”..Yes it was bad then and it’s bad now…But any movie based of an anime will always be bad that is a blatent fact…About the only one I think that won’t be that horrible and might be half decent is the “Death Note Movie”…As that is about a guy writing in his diary about people he wants dead..That shouldn’t be to hard to create right..I hope they don’t fuck up that one..I mean the only way they’d mess that one up is if they casted Zack Efron as Light or something..Haha……………………. .____.
