So I love this series. Unconditionally. Irrationally even. So much so, I went and preordered the game, which is currently only in Japanese. Not only that, it was the limited edition, with a drama CD which for the most part I won’t be able to understand XD. I considered preordering it on Amazon, but at that time they still didn’t ship games outside of Japan. So I went with Play-Asia. A site I’ve used before for things here and there. Never a game costing this much… I figured I was going to get smacked with a hefty import tax and VAT and what have you. So I prepared myself mentally. Hell. It was only shipped last week pretty much, 2 weeks tops, so I wasn’t expecting anything to arrive yet, usually Play-Asia’s shipping is pretty slow…. so you can imagine my shock and delight when it turned up this morning. No card saying ‘PAY THIS NOW’ or anything. It just appeared… it even had the full amount declared on the box, AND it was marked as Merchandise… not gift…. so I’m baffled as to why I didn’t get slapped with import tax. Not complaining. Just dazed and confused. Happily so. (More pics of the unboxing below the cut.)

Just saying I love this show. I love it’s weirdness, it’s character design, the fact it’s written by the same guy who did the Infinity series, Kotaro Uchikoshi!!!! After I found out Punchline was made by this guy I was automatically sold. And it turned out to be the same awesome bullshit he always does. I won’t spoil anything. But if you know anything about the Zero series or Ever 17 or any of his other games, you will know what you’re in for with Punchline.
So I initially wasn’t going to continue with this. But after seeing some comments on Twitter about certain episodes and reading a little about the visual novel, I decided to give it another go. I’m still not sure if that was a good idea or not to be honest… after what happened…
I’m liking Sachi and Makina right now. Michiru is cool too. The girls I don’t like seem to be the most violent or hard up girls. But there are more, less main cast, girls to be introduced yet. We still need more on Yuuji’s backstory. That’s one of the things that intrigues me. The fanservice I can live with. I’ve weathered worse on the boobs and butts front of anime.
I am so-so-so glad they’re doing this, cos it means Haruka Nogizaka gets a try, and Ushio, and a whole bunch of other cute girls from Strike Witches, Saki, K-On! etc, and, best of all imo, GUYS!!! Thats right!!! It’s Kyon vs Lulu!!! Shall we vote for crazy-hot or just plain hot? I have to go with Kyon myself… And theres more…. *yay* Okazaki vs Tamaki!! Now, much as I love Tamaki, its gotta be Okazaki. Out of loyalty to Clannad me thinks. Yuuichi-kun should be on this list too. There also a few fun traps to pick from aswell. This may well be my favourite round. (Untill the votes come in that is, and I find all my favourites lost miserably… I just hope Nogizaka Haruka wins her match, no clue about the girl she’s up against. Nagase Minato? Eh… We shall see. And just to sway your votes some more. KYON FANSERVICE!! :MOAR: Voting commences in about 13 hours!! WRONG! So very wrong, voting doesn’t start on this round untill next friday, the 17th. Boooo I was looking forward to it aswell…
Oh, later today is my blogs 1 year anniversary. I’m gonna schedule a post for the exact moment I first posted lol.
In the past week or so, lotsa stuff has happened. I’ve seen Transformers 2, been bashed by two of my friends cos I said I was bored of the sand and parents being in it too much. Also, had a trip to Ipswich to stay with a couple of friends, was awesome. Lotsa gaming, movies and eating junk. I ended up on the sofa somehow, I was all for sprawling out on the floor aswell lol.
Am I the only one cheering for more?
Am experiencing a bit of computer trouble at the mo, so will be online even less than I already am for however long it takes to fix said trouble. It might just be the overheating has finally got to it… or dust in the fan… or a combination of both lol. Just thought I’d post this in the meantime, I lol’d. Am glad of some boy-based fanservice for once in a while. (Without suffering through any BL or Yaoi that is.)
Might aswell also state the problem, in case anyone who reads this can help. It started happening very infrequently, once or twice in the space of 24 hours and then not again for days even. (This all started happening when I came home… I blame my brothers bad vibes… he kills technology with them…) Then last night, it started BSODing very frequently. Not sure what set it off…, but every time I tried to dl an ep of Haruhi to show my little brother and it kept BSODing then…. but its just a blank blue screen. No text indicating the problem. And that is the main problem, cos I got no clue whats wrong. Even tried a registry scanner thing, and it decided to BSOD then too…. If you can help, and want more info, comment so and I shall provide such info. Thank you in advance.
