2011 Spring Season Anime Picks: Hidan no Aria(aka Shakugan no Shana-magic+guns)

April 27, 2011

I’ll start off by saying, my little brother picked this. He likes guns, loli’s and action. All of which Hidan no Aria has, wrapped up in neat little not-to-fanservicey package. Which is also great, because he’s only 13 XD I don’t want him exposed to the kind of thing I was at the same age. I’d already read Chobits by his age. And was working my way through Love Hina & other stuff. I know the Tokyopop age rating was only a rough guide, but they were selling me Chobits when I was 12, & it was marked 16+ XD. I was tall for my age though… STILL. My little broseph can wait. He’s seen anime based on eroge/VN’s as it is lol. Non-ecchi ones though :3

Also, he loves Shakugan no Shana, even bought the DVD boxset(go him!!). So we both noticed the similarity to Shakugan no Shana lol. It’s basically the same thing, only Aria has guns+swords instead of magic+swords XD. (He also loves 24, so lots of guns/violence/chases etc, he loves it XD) We checked afterwards for voice actors and both lol’d at the fact Shana’s seiyuu is voicing Aria XD.

Keeping up appearances…

August 3, 2009

I am seriously far behind on the summer anime I chose to watch… Only one I’ve kept with is Umineko. Not even Canaan I’m up to date with! Others I’m being lazy with are Aoi Hana, Sea Story, Saki and Shangri La. There are others I’d like to have watched, Sora no Manimani and Kanamemo, that just don’t look like it’ll happen this season. Might dl when they’re complete, or if I’ve run out of stuff to watch. Like that’ll ever happen.

Summer really is upon me now. My mothers gone into ‘holiday’ mode, where she wants to do lots of holiday-like things. Trips out, seaside etc. I wanna go canoeing most of all. And any boats. I love boats. Water too, even the mucky brown water of the Thames on the boat ride I went on yesterday was awesome. Trip to london was yesterday. Was awesome. Got meronpan, so I was happy. Got a recipe for how to make some aswell, so I will have to try that out, will post its success/failure when I do so lol.

Due to my brothers new interest in anime, visual novels(thats right, he’s progressing that fast!!) and light novels etc, I thought I’d get a couple from amazon, was gonna get like 5, but due to the Book Depository’s stupid shipping arrangement, I woulda had to pay £2.75 per book, which is a total rip, but if you think that normally they cost like £5-6($10) then its a good deal if its like £2.50 for the book itself and another £2.75 shipping… still.. I’d rather not all at once lol. So I just got two.

SLR Figure Photography

January 26, 2009

I got my photos back from the shop! The actual prints look awesome, but the high res look a bit grainy…. definately using 100 ISO film next time…. which might be later this week. On some of them I did a bit of photoshopping, just adjusting the colour, I don’t know how to get rid of grainyness lol. And it seems like the lower aperture(ones with out of focus background)have less grain than those with a higher aperture.

I again, had to take pics of Fumie, because I love her.

This was taken using low aperture, soft focus background.

Kotobukiya Shana Swimsuit ver 1/6th figure + The New Doctor

January 8, 2009

On the same day I recieved my beloved Makoto I got Shana too. An impulse buy from amazon.co.uk, £9.99 plus about £3-4 shipping, was an uber-bargain for a 1/6th scale figure. Released back in April 2007, I’m not sure how available she is, but I still feel lucky getting her for this price.
