Yes it’s optimus prime! Leader class from Takara Tomy. He’s back from the Dark Side of the moon! It’s huge, it’s awesome and a piece of art. More after the break on how I acquired it and lots of images!
The Turks make this awesome to watch.
So what do you do on a day when you are 1) down with fever + dry cough and 2) bored to death. Rewatch old films! Final Fantasy VII advent children, first released in 2005, then again in 2009 as bluray. The latter is the director’s cut which I just rewatched and well, the extra scenes don’t really make a big difference. This might sound heretic but I never finished playing FFVII, I installed it on my computer back in 1998 and it wasn’t powerful enough to run it. I installed it again in 2007 and it was too old to be run on windows xp. I tried playing it on PSP but then I lost my PSP! Now I have the chance to play it on Galaxy S but I’m selling it! Perhaps I might complete it on my new phone Samsung Galaxy SII but it seems I have digressed too much. Let’s see what made this movie rock and not rock from the point of view of a person who never ever completed Final Fantasy VII nor Crisis core on PSP. P.S. There has on and off rumours that there could be a remake of FFVII for PS3. If that happens, I’m so borrowing a PS3 from my uncle.
The legacy of death note continues, while code geass played on the combination of mecha and death note-ish Zero. Future diary is akin to battle Royale + death note the book. Violent, supernatural and totally gripping since characters do die just like that they do in deadman wonderland. Definitely worth waiting for, been collecting the manga so far (yes, real books) and worth every penny.
Esuno began the Future Diary manga in 2006, and the main series just ended last December. Tokyopop published the 10th Future Diary manga volume in North America on April 12, just days before announcing that its North American publishing operations will end next month. The 12th and final volume of the Future Diary manga is shipping in Japan on April 26, and the Future Diary television anime will premiere this fall.
Who would knew this day would come! I have been a long time fan of Rurouni Kenshin, hell, I bought the manga back when I was a kid a book per week, also recently finished watching the whole anime series last year. Season 1 and 2 stayed true to the manga up till volume 16 before it diverges into side stories and 2 arcs of its own in season 3 which were….pretty crappy (lol feng shui fighters). Perhaps this anime series will reboot the entire franchise or continue straight from volume 17 of the manga. Personally, I hope for it to continue straight from the manga since season 1 and 2 were already pretty well done.
News quote from ANN as below:
The June issue of Shueisha’s Jump Square magazine is announcing on Thursday that production on a new Rurouni Kenshin anime project has been green-lit. More information will be provided in future issues of Jump Square.
The magazine also noted that the Blu-ray Disc versions of the two Rurouni Kenshin original video anime (OVA) projects and the Rurouni Kenshin: Ishin Shishi no Chinkonka [Requiem] film will ship between August 24 and October 26. A compilation CD will ship on July 27. Rurouni Kenshin, Meiji Kenkaku Romantan Saisen, a new game for the Sony PSP system, already shipped last month.
Nobuhiro Watsuki’s original 1994-1999 samurai manga in Shueisha’s Weekly Shonen Jump inspired a television anime series that is celebrating its 15th anniversary this year. Viz Media published the manga in North America, and Media Blasters’ AnimeWorks label released the television anime. ADV Films released the two OVA projects and the film under the licenser’s prescribed title Samurai X.
Since he ended the Rurouni Kenshin manga, Watsuki drew Gun Blaze West and Buso Renkin. His current title, Embalming – The Another Tale of Frankenstein, has been running in Jump Square since the magazine’s inaugural issue in 2007.
