Finally watching Code Geass…

(I just picked a cute Geass-related pic lol)

(I just picked a cute Geass-related pic lol)

After watching the first episode at tonights Anime Society meet, (watching it was my idea… since all these close minded fools just wanna watch endless repeats of Elfin Lied, Chobits and Hellsing….bah… I’m like… the most knowledgable/otaku of the lot!! I was hoping for a fellow otaku to talk to…) I felt compelled to watch more. So far its good, wondering what they’ll use/how they’ll bring CC back to life, cos CC is cute. (After watching some of Geass, I now have a legit reason to get Kallen/Karen, CC and Shirley-san figures! lol)

My oppinion of Lelouch or Lulu as I will be refering to him from now on, is not great so far… he seems a little crazed, a little power hungry…. I’m sure I’ll find out the reason for his partial insanity later on though. Better be good… cause all I can think is that he’s a grade A bitch lol. (And also, which is it, Kallen or Karen? I’ve seen Karen for the figures, and Kallen for the subs I’m watching.)

High res of pic used available here at Konchan.

Oh, and heres a taster of the (probably) next blog post.

Kawaii, desho?

Kawaii desho?

The updates have finally done downloading, and I was FINALLY able to start playing!! I added all the codes, thanks to the various guides, which I will mention in the main Shinki post when I post it lol.

Busou Shinki Battle Rondo Problems – HELP!

October 5, 2008

After finally finishing all the updates, it now loads up to the Start screen. BUT, when I try to log in, I get what I assume is an error message(please don’t say it says not playable in your country, why did Konami let me create the account if thats why!!??);

Thats what happens if I try to log in with my Konami ID, which is what it asks for right? And this is what happens when I try the Game ID, just to see if it will work.

I get a different error code…. So what I want to know is, why can’t I log in??!!??

Shinki Net = GET!! (+ Numerous anime!)

September 30, 2008

Today in the mail I got Busou Shinki Battle Rondo!!! Or at least the file I needed that I couldn’t download from Shinki Net. (Took too long… kept timing out…)

I’ve installed it, and am just attempting to play it now. (I will need to download proper Japanese characters though… I thought I had them… since I see them fine on webpages… but not on programs… weird… If anyone knows a decent, safe place to download them from, please leave a comment with the link! I will try the non-unicode thing too, like I had to with Summer Days.) With the Shinki Net file, I also got some anime!! Well, more than some lol, quite a lot, I got the complete Gurren Lagann, Rozen Maiden, Zero no Tsukaima 1 & 2, Shakugan no Shana 1 & 2 and Popotan!! A good hawl from Ashper I must say!! (Some/alot of you may recognise the name from DC.com.

Will report back on how Shinki goes! Be gutting if it doesnt work…..

Busou Shinki – Up close and Personal

September 28, 2008

I have grown more and more attached to my Busou Shinki’s ever since I got them… more so even than my Figma Haruhi I think… which is strange… it might be because I’m not as scared to play with the Shinki’s, because they cost alot less than the Figma’s, and would be much cheaper to replace if broken. Figma’s just seem more delicate…. They’re definately better quality, but it might have to do with the fact I was so enticed by the Angelic Layer story when I first read it, like 5 years go…(wow…long ago….weird…) And stuff like Sky Girls and the slightly more recent Strike Witches might have been an influence too. I’m not really big on the mecha stuff… but I do love the character designs!!

(I don’t know why I didnt take any close ups of Devil Strarfs box… and I can’t now, it’s at home lol)

Busou Shinki – A kind of mecha Angelic Layer?

September 21, 2008

One of the first things I thought when I saw Busou Shinki’s quite a while back, was ‘those joints don’t look too great’. But After researching further into it when I was able to buy one, I found they’re meant to be like that. They’re from a series about battle dolls, like Angelic Layer! And better yet, theres an online game which you can play and unlock Busou’s with the codes you get with the figures! The games called Battle Rondo I believe, and gets new characters updated when new Busou are released. Which is a mucho cool feature if I must say so myself!

Like the sucker I am I fell for this franchise and was under its spell, and wanting more!!! I haven’t downloaded the game yet… will when at uni probably… The pic above came from wiki, tis all the Busou’s to date I think… there might be a couple missing… it looks like they’ve got progressively cuter as time went by, which I’m all for personally! Below you’ll find the opening for the first game released.

Love the op music actually, the rest ain’t too bad either, but you can go hunting for that if you’re so inclined too.

This is a sneak peak of my three newest Busou Shinki’s, MaoChao to the left, Arnval in the middle and Howling on the right. I’ll post more pics of them later on! Enjoy for now and go investigate for yourselves!!
