Kyoukai no Kanata Review

Kyoukai no Kanata Review

After a very long hiatus from watching anime, I finally decided to pick out something off YouTube while randomly browsing J-Pop/anime/VOCALOID songs. This got me hooked, and as a result I watched the entire series. As expected, Kyoukai no Kanata is a series with good quality animation and storyline. What I didn’t know was that it was animated by Kyoto Animation, which I was (and still am) a sucker for – Full Metal Panic? Fumoffu, Full Metal Panic: The Second Raid…

Anime Festival Asia 2012: In Review

Anime Festival Asia 2012: In Review

So another year passes, and its been a really long break since I last visited an anime festival – roughly 4 years! Last year’s AFA was refreshing; a revisit those memories of my youth where I rabidly went to the city area and Singapore Expo for various IT Shows, and on occasion, anime/cosplay and/or Japanese festivals way back in 2006 and 2007. Those days also consisted of me reading (and buying) manga, and various anime shows as well. This year’s…

ODEX Anniversary – Japanese Anime Companies Strike Back

ODEX Anniversary – Japanese Anime Companies Strike Back

Read in the HWZ forums that a Singnet user has recieved a “love letter” from the local law firm, Rajah & Tann, representing ShowGate Inc from Japan. Well, looks like the shit has hit the ceiling fan, quite literally. If this goes to the courts, and a landmark case is set, it spells doom on all anime lovers in Singapore. EDIT: More news – Apparently, not only Singnet users have been hit, but Starhub users have received the letter as…

When I See You Smile…I Know I Can Face The Day

When I See You Smile…I Know I Can Face The Day

Okay, this week’s been a pretty crazy week for me, due to the fact that I had to be on standby near two computer labs for the preliminary exams and following that, prepare them for the actual N-level exams. Anyway, it seems that I bring luck to people who need it? I helped a group of girls that were doing a website competition because they had problems embedding a video clip, and also had to chip in a hand to…

Neon Odex Evangelion: End of Anime Part 2

Neon Odex Evangelion: End of Anime Part 2

Well done, Odex. Today’s Straits Times has written up an article attacking anime downloaders, stating that they have a “perception problem” when it comes to their releases. Being the cheapest in the world? I think legitimate Malaysian and Chinese businesses sell theirs even more cheaper than Odex – besides, the stated $9.90 offer is a “trial”. Strangely the article doesn’t mention anything about fansub translation quality, only about picture quality, and also no mention at all about their massive stockpiles…

Neon Odex Evangelion: End of Anime

Neon Odex Evangelion: End of Anime

As usual, life goes on in Singapore with just one more “correction” to the Matrix: C&D letters for anime are being sent. I am going to make a prediction here with this new development: 1. Toy shops specializing in anime and manga will close (except for Comics Connection, I guess – the HORROR!) 2. Odex will get rich (for now) and start bleeding red when the expected sales they wanted isn’t picking up, in a mirror of Creative’s lawsuit against…

Renovation Highs

Renovation Highs

Actually wanted to post this once the renovation was done, but due to a lack of time (because my parents were practically getting me to move most of the heavy stuff in the flat), I couldn’t take any photos. So here it is. And a close-up of the centre gashapon – GSD with GiTs in the corner and MS Selection 37 (Ugh, waste of $) on the right: Will take more pictures once my camera’s fully charged. Somehow the battery…
