Figma Preorders – Hatsune Miku & Tsuruya-san

August 31, 2008

Today I early-bird preordered Miku and Tsuruya-san from Hobby Link Japan!!! I’m so happy!!! I don’t care if they get shipped together and I have to wait for Miku, cos if I ordered her from the UK, I would get her even later than that. (Tsuruya-san is getting a October release, I’m willing to wait.)

Only my second ever preorder. :proud:

I didn’t even realise Tsuruya-san was up on HLJ, she just appeared at the bottom of the Miku page, so I thought I’d see if she was available to preorder too!!

I’m SO GLAD I got the chance to preorder them!!! And just before the early bird preordering is almost done aswell… You have to order by the 1st of September and you get 5% off the price. So very happy! (As if you can’t tell? lol)

I dont like how wide that mouth is...

I will probably keep the first face on Hatsune, I dont like that wide singing mouth much…

I love this face though!!

I love this face though!!

Hauuuu! I love Tsuruya-san!! I personally think the Figma Tsuruya-san captures her essence the best out of all the Tsuruya-san’s on the market.

I can’t wait to own them!!! They’ll probably get shipped to my house though, not my Uni accomodation… which will suck. I may have to edit the address or something. If not, them going to my house isn’t the end of the world.

(Oh, btw, all the images used come from HobbySearch.

Nogizaka Haruka no Himitsu ep 8 – “…Onii~san☆” Review

August 30, 2008

Watched the prerelease of Haruka’s Secret episode 8 when I got home from work and found it on Moetaku. Was uber-happy to see the new episode. I was a little wary at first, because of the Mika-heavy content. But I was pleasantly suprised in the end. Twas all very cliche and not unfamiliar territory, but it was done well and very enjoyabled. Haruka fans will not be displeased with this episode, even though there is a distinct lack of Haruka, it was still good.

The episode begins with Mika having a refined tea party with some of her school chums. Who all comment on how ‘experienced’ she is. lol. Mika…worldly…lol

Mika takin' charge of a gaggle of girls.

Mika making the poor innocent girl's minds reel.

This was a funny introduction, I loved the girls reactions. And Mika’s labcoat, lol.

Plotting on the way home....

What do you think they heard? (Watch and find out :grin:.)

More plotting and moe from Mika. She wants to teach Yuuto how to please women, Haruka in particular.

Those eyes.... she does look quite freaky....

I just love the range of evil expressions Mika-chan has.

As the episode progresses, Mika takes Yuuto (that seems more correct) on a date. And funny things happen. And the Mika-Brand-Moe.

Moe.......

Moe.......

Hawt!!!

Hawt!!!

MOE! MOE, MOE, MOE, MOE!!!

MOE! MOE, MOE, MOE, MOE!!!

Dontcha just love how the hair flutters even though they’re inside where theres no wind? lol. Oh! Whats this next?? Filth!! Thats riiiiight!!!

I LOL'd at that. And yes, I have a terminally filthy mind... you all were thinking it too....Don't lie.

Most of these screenshots are just shots of Mika-Brand-Moe. I’m sorry if you don’t like Mika. But I bet the majority of Haruka fans do lol.

As I said, cliche episode, falling into the arms of your friends/sisters potential guy is very well known. And having feelings for him is also very cliche. As is this particualar shot below.

The same pose/angle as Ichigo Momomiya in vol 3 of Tokyo Mew Mew after dancing with Ryou and feeling something she shouldn't.

This is the pose/angle in question. You will agree its much alike. I wonder how many times this pose/angle has been used? In this kind of situation too...

Anyways, they go to the cinema too, and then meet Shiina in the street…. :hissssss:

:hisssssssssssssssssssssssss:

And right after Mika drags Yuuto to a place where they can changed into Yukata’s too. (Anyone know what these are called? Because it looks like they left their clothes their, they arn’t carrying them when they leave….)

Just delivering the goods....

Money shot.... :sigh: Just delivering the goods....

There were pantsu too, but I’m not going to pander to you today lol.

And then Haruka appears!! Stopping Mika from doing something….well…something, you’ll see when you watch! 😀

Kawaii!!! Oh Haruka! We missed you this episode!!

Kawaii!!! Oh Haruka! We missed you this episode!!

And after this, we go back to school. And guess what?

It's the School Cultural Festival!! Always one of my favourite times of anime series!!

I’m sure alot of us look forward to the Cultural festival episodes of anime, because its usually an excuse to dress up cute girls in maid outfits or other such fetishes.

And Shiina volunteers to be one of the representatives for their class... Grrrrr....

She guilds Yuuto into being the other representative…. I’m sorry if you like Shiina, I just don’t…. I know she’ll back down in the end… but Haruka is just so naive! She probably doesn’t even know what flirting is!!!

She's so cute....and caring and lovely and darling....

She's just so cute...

Anyways, thats really the end of the episode. Shiina is becoming a more prominant threat. Yuuto has to step up and be a man! Take Haruka in his arms and confess!!! :haauuuuu:

Before I leave you, one more shot of Mika-Brand-Moe!!

Strike Witches ep 9 – Defend at All Costs – Preview

August 29, 2008

I know, its late. The Greys Anatomy 2-part finale screwed me over… I totally forgot about the Crunchy Roll showing of ep 9. Luckily I found an mp4 to download(I didnt tell no one nothing…), much better and bigger picture, so I’m pleased. Now onto some screenshots. I liked this episode. Really like the Neuroi this episode.

If you remember the end of last weeks episode, this is pretty much where we left it. All right, exactly where we left it! lol.

Thats it for now. As I type I listen to ‘Sanya no Uta’ and prepare for beddy-byes. (And ep 7 of Denno Coil :grin:) I will post more when I get back from work. (Work AGAIN! Bah….) Do enjoy these in the meanwhile. I think those who have seen ep 9 will agree with me that it was rather spiffing. And those who haven’t, WATCH IT NOW!!

Seen Hellboy 2, now watching Death Note Movie.

August 28, 2008

Saw the Hellboy movie today. Adverts made it look better. Not enough Del Toro-esque stuff and too much mushy stuff…. the singing was uneccessary… and barforific….. Wasn’t enough fighting. Graphics were awesome. I loved the Elemental. That was brill. But the bad guy was too fey. Voice wasn’t good enough.

I did however! Spot the first Death Note movie on DVD!! (Only released in the UK recently!! Have been waiting YONKS!!) I’m watching the first hour now, then theres a 2 hour Greys Anatomy marathon, season finale. Have to watch it. Will resume watching DN Movie afterwards. Means staying up till at least 1:30am tho…. and I’ve got work 2mro at 9… GAH (1:30 cos I need to watch ep 6 of Denno Coil, tis now my nightly ritual, will keep downloading an episode a day. Something to look forward too.

Thats all. Will report back later. Probably tomorrow.

How many hours have we been watching???!!! :faints:

August 27, 2008

I have yet to work that out…. but I’ve worked out(approxamatly)how many episodes, OVA’s and anime movies I have watched over the years, starting with the Moomins on BBC2 in the morning when I was about 6. The full list can be found here, on a new page I made(called Anime Watch List), easier access than a blog post I thought.

The pic I've used for a wallpaper that I'm currently using.
