Moe Moe Kyun~~

Its really been a while since I last posted anything. Not really busy or anything, but just plain lazy =). Anyway I’ve decided to skip a season’s worth of reviews due to my laziness(I actually got 1/2 of the reviews done but didn’t bother to complete it).

This post is actually a post dedicated to all the MMK maids who worked at NEX Serangoon from 18th of March to 20th of March. For those who haven’t got an idea what MMK stands for and who are they, here’s a short explanation on them. MMK stands for Moe Moe Kyun, which consists of 15(if i’m not wrong) cute and gorgeous girls. They sometimes have events, like maid cafes, for the public.

The last event they had was awesome. Their service was awesome as ever. I’m a girl-shy type so the power-up chant made me a little embarrassed. There was photo-taking sessions(they provide cameras), singing and dance sessions and also the Jan-Ken-Pon game. If I were to summarize the whole event into a word, its probably gonna be “HELL-LOTS-OF-FUN”(Yea I know its not really 1 word, but who cares right?hahaha)

Like I mentioned earlier, I’m a girl-shy type, so its not like me to attend events like that. But of course I didn’t regret attending the event at all. In fact I enjoyed it so much that I went 2 out of 3 days for the event.

Lastly, here’s my thanks to Rina for taking photos(and serving me my food), Moe and Miyu for the wonderful drawings on our chiffon cakes, Michiyo and Tsuriki(the new maids) who showed us in and played Jan-Ken with us. Credits to Moe Moe Kyun for the pictures(sorry, took them without permission). Also, many thanks to the rest who are involved but not mentioned for such a wonderful event! Do visit their facebook page for more updates!

No idea when the next post will be but it would be probably be around 1-2 weeks after most of the new season animes have been air-ed. Oh and here’s the main culprit of stealing my time away.

新年あけましておめでとうございます!

First up, Happy New Year to all of you out there! Its a late post(considered late since its not up by 1st Jan) because of the countdown party being held at my house, need time to sleep and of course games =).

There’s quite a lot of resolutions this year for me, and I really hope all of them could be fulfilled.

1)Clear all my visual novels(this means Kami-mode switch= turned on)

2)Graduate from school properly

3)Secure a course from a university I like

4)Get more ps3 games

5)Earn enough cash to support my further studies

6)Sub more PVs

7)Get into a good company for NS

8)Meet -aira- once more!

9)Watch more awesome animes

10)And more stuff(lol).

My thoughts on the previous year:

Pretty much a great year since I suppose much more positive stuff than negative stuff happened. Though it can be better.

Anyway gonna have a few photoshoots as soon as I get my costume/stuff ready, will post up photos if after that.

Most of you probably would have noticed. Yes, the first picture is taken from Ore no Imouto wa Konna Kawaii Wake ga Nai’s official website. Its actually a new year greeting card and it caught my attention so it came up here. Don’t ask me how I got it. Oh and I also looted a doraemon greeting card, will post it up here once I managed to convert it.

Lastly, cosrain(or maybe aira herself) hadnt been putting up much photos of -aira-, so cant put up much photos here, so just going to add some Sakine Meiko cosplay done by -aira-.(adding photos later)

Note: I’ll be continuing AyaHiranoDake until this blog starts to pick up in stats.Posts will be the same for both blogs.

ZOMG TIME!

I REALLY NEED EXTRA TIME!!!

I’ve never really bothered about how I spent time usually but recently I kinda figured I’m really short of time. Been really busy the past few weeks+ I fell ill, so it will be kinda surprising to find me posting anything at all. I have work from 9-6 every weekday, which leaves me less than 4 hours on every weekday to download and watch my animes and play some games on both my com and ps3 after adding the travel time to get back home. Whats worse, I need to alter my “new” costume which I got from an online seller by this week because EOY’s this weekend!

Anyway I just got my new Samsung BX2231 Full HD Monitor yesterday and its awesome=). Finally able to get my ps3 into my room and use the monitor for playing games + as a 2nd screen for my laptop.

Not gonna post anything else since I’m really busy so some -aira- pics from Cosrain and this post shall end.

-Aira-‘s awesomeness at AFA X

Just before I start on anything, I would like to take this chance to announce that this will be my main domain from now on, and its mostly about the famous cosplayer -aira- and some other anime stuff.

Alright on to the main topic: AFA X. If I were to summarize AFA X in a few words, its going to be “better than previous years”. The organization, ticketing and stage placement was definately better than previous years, but the crowd control and sound crew for stage area was really bad. Booths in the main event hall was pretty attractive I would say, not to mention they brought in Project Diva Arcade Version for free play. Only thing they could improve on is that they could relocate the mini stage area which was kinda at a deserted corner.

The cosplayers on AFA X this year seemed to have increased and most of them turned out to have done a great job.I’m not going to post any pics cosplayer pictures here cause pictures belong to them and I will only post them if they agree to it. Do visit sgcafe or Hiromi for pictures of cosplayers.

And now on to the main point: -AIRA-.Saw her on the second day and she looks much more gorgeous than in her pictures. Her Black Rock Shooter Hatsune Miku Version was totally awesome. Daring outfit, outstanding poses and her awesomeness made her the perfect cosplayer in my eyes. Anyway I managed to take pictures with her which is a really great achievement in life.

Only regret is that I look really bad in that picture.Costome and wig not worn properly. Not really an excuse but its my first time cosplaying. Anyway, time to brag about my short little conversation with her. -aira- herself looked pretty excited when she saw me(probably cause I was the first cosplayer to go up on stage to take a picture with her). Just when I stepped right next to her she asked me with her cute yet awesome voice if I was cosplaying as Vongola. After my reply she told me ” GOOD COSPLAY” which really made boosted my confidence in cosplaying and it totally made my day.

During the -aira- and Kaname panel, she answered some questions which I really felt the same way as she did. I wouldn’t really want to cosplay a character that I dont really like because its only a waste of time if you cant put in 100% effort in it. Oh and her poses really is enough to make me go nose-bleeding on the spot.

Her You.Should.Not.Do.Pose is totally too cute and sexy

Lastly, AFA X day to Anisong concert. I would say Angela, Scandal and May’n did a good job during the concert. Aside from May’n, its their first time in Singapore doing live and I can understand how hard is it to communicate with fans which doesnt really understand Japanese. Only disappointment I had was with Angela, since she didnt sing my favourite songs Alternative and Aoi Haru. Its more like a Fafner concert than a concert for her. Scandal was good on the whole since during their appearence the crowd was rocking the whole concert hall with her. Also they did their best two songs in the end Shoujo S and Shunkan Sentimental which made the crowd went crazy. Finally May’n. As expected she would start off with her macross songs. Shinjitemiru(theme song of the movie Incite Mill) was great with the backup dancers. Again expected, she finished off with the heart catching song Lion. Crowd went crazy again when she sang it. During her encore, she announced that she’s acting in a movie about herself and some scenes are from Singapore and Malaysia. Not sure if its really worth watching since it might turn out to be like a documentry of May’n but still do watch it.

:/

Cant think of any appropriate title for this post, so I’ll just use this for the time being.Anyway be prepared because this is going to be a LOOOOONNNNNNGGGGG post.Before I start on anything, here my new desktop wallpaper!

Well people, fall season animes has started(in fact second episodes has been released for a few animes already), and there’s quite a few interesting animes in this season. As usual, I’m going to do reviews on the animes I’m watching. Not doing any others because: Its pretty obvious.I DIDNT WATCH THEM THUS I CANNOT DO ANY REVIEW ON THEM!Well thats part of the reason but more importantly they didn’t catch my attention.Sorry to all who were looking forward to the reviews but I didn’t cover.

By name order:

1)Bakuman

My first impression on this anime on the first 10 minutes of episode 1:BORING,TYPICAL,ZZZZ. Well I’m pretty glad I at least made the effort to finish the end of episode 1, because I would really regret if I didnt and gave up this show.Turned out pretty well for episode 1’s ending. *SPOILERS*:I haven’t seen any anime that goes “HEY I’M GONNA DRAW MANGAS,AND IF I MAKE AN ANIME OUT OF IT PLZ MARRY ME KAY?”,thus I assume that its awesome.Oh and Azuki Miho’s mum is just like her+curled up hair(looks like the artist got lazy to think of new art lol)Ratings for this show would be 9/10.

2)Fortune Arteria:

Umm, I would say its an average show FOR NOW. I’ve kinda seen this storyline somewhere but I just can’t remember where. Anyway its not really that typical anime type, so I think I would give it like 7.5/10 for now, since episode 2 issn’t out(or maybe it is but I don’t enjoy watching raws for non OMGMUSTWATCHNOMATTERWHAT type of animes).I striked out everything because I’ve started to take back whatever I typed over here.Episode 2 was awesome, really gave me a big surprise because I didnt really felt like watching this show. Once again, awesome tsundere service.*SPOILERS*: What really surprised me was the vice prez was like so friendly at start which psyco-ed everybody to think she’s a saint(well she is to me) and spotlight comes down on the poor guy which made everybody believe he’s a peeping tom.But, what made thing really interesting if when the vice prez “turned on” her vampiric powers for a moment to try and save the cat.Ratings now will be 9.2/10.

3)MM!

This one really crack me up.Imagine a masochist guy and his full of girls around him life. Definately not your everyday anime. The first episode was really good. Man, if any guy were to get such two beauties to cure his masochist-ness, from the way they do it, the guy would really enjoy it instead of getting cured from it. Ratings for this show would be a 9.5/10 for me.

4)Motto To-Love-Ru

Like the first season, its filled with what a normal guy would like.Ecchi and harem everywhere! For storyline, its getting interesting as well.*SPOILERS*: Haruna starts to show that she likes Ritto even more now, and Lala confessed to Ritto. I think things are going to get really interesting for this anime like in season 1, so do try and watch it.Gonna give two different ratings for this show. Ratings for ecchi+harem:10/10. Ratings for the show itself:8.5/10.

5)Ore no Imouto wa Konna Kawaii Wake ga Nai

Another great anime. Younger sister is an otaku,tsundere and enjoys playing ero-games, but she tries to hide that fact.You don’t get that anywhere in real life. *SPOILERS*: Its really funny to first think that your parents will be the one playing ero-games or dating sims when you find one that doesnt belong to you at home. Anyway, All Hail Tsunderes so this show is a must watch=). Ratings(not based on biased feelings for Tsunderes) for this show will be: 9.5/10.

6)Psychic Detective Yakumo(Shinrei Tantei Yakumo)

Hmm, well for those who enjoy mystery, ghosts and stuff, this would be the show for you. Its about this young man(who looks like Yagami Light from Death Note), who is able to see and talk to ghost because of his special red left eye he has. He sets up this “club” in his university to help people solve ghost-related problems. However I find it quite contridicting since he’s a lazy chap and a hikkikomori(a person who prefers to stay at home and hates crowds), but he wants to help people with ghost-related problems.Oh and I just found out there’s a live action drama on this show.Apparently it came out before the anime.Ratings for this show:8.8/10

7)Sora no Otoshimono Forte

Well I’m not going to go into details for this one, since its a 2nd season.As usual, loads of fanservice and stuff.Storyline would be average to me but comedy and ecchi would be above average.Ratings will be 8.7/10 for this anime.

8)Star Driver

Its a pretty awesome show to me, until Takuto starts transforming and stuff.Turns out to be like power rangers or some other magical-girl type of show(no offense to all magical-girl type anime lovers,since I do enjoy Magical Lyrical Nanoha).Oh and I find it funny and rather irritated when they do that “Kiraboshi” thing, no idea why.Anyway, the storyline is really good+it has a great opening Gravity 0 by Aqua Times.Do go check out the openings on youtube or even better get the album.Ratings will be 9/10.

9)The World God Only Knows(Kami Nomi zo Shiru Sekai)

This anime is quite similar to other anime about this girl with a dog trying to capture sad souls or something(cant remember that title).Anyway to me this is better since its pretty amusing to see how an otaku like him manages to make a real girl fall for him. He understands a girl’s heart well as he’s called the God of Gal-ge(dating sims) and he claims that there is no way that he cannot get a girl he wants in any Gal-ge.Also, its pretty amusing to see how that death god girl starts screwing up his peaceful otaku life.Oh and I WANT A PFP AS WELL,ITS AMAZING!Ratings for this anime will be 9.5/10.

10)To Aru Majutsu no Index II

Oh yea!Season 2!More Biri-Biri action!This anime has been awesome ever since season 1, and I recommand this anime to all of you.Comedy, storyline, actions and all other stuff gets an A from me, thats how good this anime is.I won’t go into details for this anime since once again, its a second season anime. Do go check out this anime!Oh and Kanzaki Kaori FTW!Ratings for this anime: 9.6/10.

11)Yosuga no Sora

Last one.Some of you may be thinking why this picture looks so much like a Gal-ge/Ero-ge(dating sims) instead of an anime.Well I couldn’t find any good pictures for this anime and apparently its from a Ero-ge so I just took a more appropriate picture for this post from the game.The anime itself is quite interesting, but I think if anybody that has played this game before would think that its not really that great(not that I’ve played it before).Loads of fanservice once again and storyline is above average.Its worth watching.Anyway I sense that there will be a Yandere character in this anime soon, since all other type of characters are already out.Ratings will be 9.1/10.

I’ll continue some really great openings/endings in another post so do check it out.

My Whole Life Was Unlimited Blade Works!

Yes, I finally found time to finish watching Unlimited Blade Works.Tons of problems came up like download stopped for no reason, no time no watch it because of school work, though most of the problems was due to download stopping(too many new animes come out together and my bandwidth sucks big time so yea).

My Animes Are The Bone Of My Sword!

For those who’s still not sure what I’m ranting about, its about the movie call Unlimited Blade Works.Its a movie on the famous anime, Fate/Stay Night.For those who havent watched the anime, do go watch it before starting on the movie, because it can get really confusing.I’m not going to explain in detail what Unlimited Blade Works is about since its really very famous so googling it will most probably get you what you want(yes I love and support google).

WARNING:SPOILERS AHEAD.READ AT YOUR OWN COST.I’M TRYING TO FILL UP THIS LINE SO THAT YOU WILL NOTICE IT AND STOP READING IF YOU HATE SPOILERS(lol).     

I’ll give a rating first for Unlimited Blade Works.To me, it gets 9.9/10,5 stars out of 5,and tops in any way you can think of.The only reason I took 0.1 away from 10 points is because Illya got owned too quickly by Gilgamesh,and Gilgamesh ripped her heart out.Really didnt expect her to die but oh well.9 points out of 9.9 goes to Tohsaka Rin, Emiya Shirou and Heroic Spirit Emiya(sorry saber fans out there,I couldnt lie to myself and give her any points in this movie).Have always been a Rin fan cause of her tsundere character(I’m a tsundere lover) and in this movie she portrays her character well+a few fan service.Shirou(the young red hair version), is also awesome in this movie.In fact he’s much more awesome than he was in the anime.Took him like godknowshowmanyweeks to learn how to trace a weapon properly after Archer died in Fate/Stay Night.In this movie he managed to trace Archer’s weapons in an instant while fighting against Archer himself.Whats more,he gained his mana circle from Rin(which I’ll kill him for that if I have the chance).And finally, he OWNED Gilgamesh with his Unlimited Blade Works.Gosh Gilgamesh, you’re really a noob for getting owned by fake weapons and a magician instead of a servant.Finally, Archer(or Emiya Shirou future version).Same as Emiya Shirou, he excelled in many ways in this movie than in the anime.First, he shot a blast of Hrunting at Berserker, Emiya and Saber, which sucessfully takes away one life from Berserker and almost killing Emiya in the process.Next he won against Caster once in a battle and easily killed Caster with his own version of Gate of Babylon. His Unlimited Blade Works is as awesome as usual in the movie(he casted it twice or trice throughout the whole movie) and whats more he skipped incantations in the movie.Of couse, his Rho Aias,Kanshou and Byakuya is also awesome.

Archer with Shirou Looks

Anyway, I feel that in this movie Emiya Shirou stole a lot of fight scenes from Saber.He practically cut in everytime Saber tries to fight Archer and tries to show off his Kanshou and Byakuya.Oh and Caster,you really suck as well for almost getting yourself owned by Rin.Its okay with me, since its RIN that owned her.Of course, I enjoyed the fight between Emiya Shirou x2 the most, though its pretty one sided till the end of the battle since most of the time young Shirou just got his weapons smashed.

Enough said, go watch the movie and find out how awesome this movie really is.I’ll only put up one link to watch this movie because like always, I recommand you people to download the 1080 version and watch it on your TV/HD monitor or whatever is best.

And finally, incatations for Unlimited Blade Works!

Shirou version:

体は剣で出来ている。
 血潮は鉄で心は硝子。
 幾たびの戦場を越えて不敗
 ただの一度の敗走もなく
 ただの一度の勝利もなし。
 担い手はここに孤り
 剣の丘で鉄を鍛つ。
 ならば、わが生涯に意味は不要ず。
 この体は、無限の剣で出来ていた。

I am the bone of my sword
 Steel is my body and fire is my blood
 I have created over a thousand blades
 Unaware of loss, Nor aware of gain
 Withstood pain to create weapons, waiting for one’s arrival
 I have no regrets. This is the only path
 My whole life was unlimited blade works

Archer’s version:

体は剣で出来ている。
 血潮は鉄で心は硝子。
 幾たびの戦場を越えて不敗。
 ただの一度も敗走はなく、
 ただの一度も理解されない。
 彼の者は常に独り
 剣の丘で勝利に酔う。
 故に、生涯に意味はなく
 その体は、きっと剣で出来ていた。

 I am the bone of my sword
 Steel is my body and fire is my blood
 I have created over a thousand blades
 Unknown to Death, Nor known to Life
 Have withstood pain to create many weapons
 Yet, those hands will never hold anything
 So as I pray, unlimited blade works.

Shock!!

WHAT IS THIS?!?!?!!?

I can’t believe that this is happening.I can understand that good animes will have to end some day, and I accept the fact that animes like Seitokai Yakuin Domo, (Edit)Kaichou wa Maid-Sama, K-ON!! and all other animes that lasted 1 season(or 13 epsiodes) will end some day, but the most shocking anime that ended was Katekyo Hitman Reborn.

I’m pretty slow on coming to know about such news, and when the final episode came out, as usual I was happily watching it, and when the ending came, I was stunned to see the “Thank You For Your Support!”. Went ahead and search for evidence to prove myself wrong but ANN(Anime News Network) had to show me the “Number of Episodes:203”.Still trying to deceive myself, went to hitman reborn’s main site and saw “The Broadcast has ended.Thank you for your support!”. They better have a season 9 coming out once the manga is fast enough. I was really looking forward to the Shimon Arc.Guess its best that I re-watch all 8 seasons for now. Here’s an opening of one of Katekyo Hitman Reborn’s best opening.

Alright, next up will be rants on Seitokai Yakuin Domo. All 13 episodes have been aired, and all 13 episodes are awesome. New character appeared in final episode, so I hope to see a 2nd season soon(or at least I hope they come out with one).Kinda expected that the new character is another wierdo, since NOBODY except Tsuda is normal.As usual, cant get enough of Amakusa Shino(Hikasa Youko).Her “innocence” is really lol.Oh and Hata is awesome as usual.All scenes of Hata throughout the series never fails to crack me up.

"No Scoop, No Life" by Ranko Hata

I might do a picture post soon of Seitokai Yakuin Domo soon since its really boring at school. Credits to http://randomc.net and Hiromi for the pictures(Sorry cant resist to steal them cause they are too awesome).Here’s one last picture for this post.

;P
