Persona -trinity soul- (Anime Preview)

Starting this month (February 2008), NEWTYPE USA will conclude its publication. I know this is old news but it’s new news to me. Yeah, shocking. I know. Its publisher ADV released a press statement that the change is part of the rebranding exercise on NEWTYPE USA because the magazine itself is licensed from Japan’s original NEWTYPE magazine. NEWTYPE USA is confirmed to be replaced by a magazine with the same format named PiQ magazine. You can read all about it here, here and here.

Persona has to be the anime to watch this season after we have been disappointed by many of the lost hopes we initially anticipated in the early of the season. What’s more, Persona -trinity soul- is a game-based anime, giving the advantage of the hype to many of its PS2 gaming fans. We do know that anime is a different entity from video games. Face it, even Devil May Cry was such a flop for an anime despite of the high impacting game title. I just don’t want to be disappointed by the failures of many game-based anime titles before. However with Koyasu Takehito and Sawashiro Miyuki among the voice cast, there can’t be any flaw expected from this anime, right? Besides these two also lend their voice talent for the original Persona game, which I suppose give the story some homey feeling to it. Again this anime is produced by Aniplex though is animated by a relative new studio A-1 Pictures, which is a subsidiary of Aniplex itself, I guess the animation would not be greatly affected. Also with Ishii Yuriko who have experience in animation development for anime titles such as Blood+, GITS: SAC Solid State Society, Ouran High School Host Club, and Darker Than Black together with a music maestro Iwasaki Taku, you know that you can’t go wrong with this anime. Wouldn’t it?

Dragonaut: The Resonance (Episode 17)

Two weeks ago, Kou in a military uniform, reported the Spirytus incident to his superiors about how a dragon would go berserk after losing its master. That is why a Resonance is necessary as a form of communication between the dragon and its human master so that its wild behaviour is under control. That is also why, in the present moment, Machina had gone berserk after Akira who is her master has been killed.

Gundam 00 (Episode 17)

BrianAndrew is now affiliated to Baka Monster. It’s an anime forum actually but the moderators are able to charter the needs of the forum members by providing anime and manga downloads. So try to guess where I got my anime fix.

80 years ago, an expedition group went inside an abandoned space station located at the Jupiter’s orbit. Inside they found the purple Haro (the one used by Neena inside her Throne Drei) in which they identify as the information terminal.

Switchfoot LIVE in Malaysia

I had great time during my brief stay in KL and to top it off, I’ve also bought my first ever copy of NEWTYPE USA magazine. The magazine is the December 2007 (a little backdated) issue with Code Geass on the cover. I’m on cloud nine!

It’s the mid-semester break for my university in conjunction of the Chinese New Year celebration, so I took the opportunity to go for a shopping holiday in KL. Furthermore the timing is considered perfect as I was able to attend a particular event there. While many Jay Chou’s fans thronged 1Utama shopping mall, I was on a separate event to attend one of the highlights of Malaysia’s music calander – Switchfoot LIVE in Malaysia concert. The odd thing about the gig is that it lacks publicity. Most of my friends were not aware of the concert, not until when I told them about it. To be frank, I did not know about it in the first place if not for my friend. Thanks to her, I got the ticket. Even so, the day before the big day, the event was featured on The Star. So as far as the fanfare is concerned, there wasn’t much of it.
