要是进入太细节估计会变很长文,我就说说一些比较明显的缺点跟优点吧

IMG 20160120 194029

IMG 20160120 194536

先说说Sennheiser

缺点:

边缘的金属跟耳罩之间的间隙,要是有风吹过会有摩擦音

因为耳机宽度是刚好适合人耳的,带眼镜会轻压到边框

高音不是非常清晰,没有中低音那么稳定

优点:

整体来说driver大概是200~300美金价位,这款耳机的官方报价是350,最近已经降到250左右

音色相对非常平衡,适合众多genre

外观是我见过的耳机里面(open back除外),设计最好的

作为一个overear类型的便携式耳机只有190g也是非常适合带出去使用

可以折叠跟调整的部位很多,适合各种人,耳罩往后斜虽然可以解决眼镜边缘的问题但是同时会导致部分声音在耳朵后方

在买这个之前我跟铁三角的MSR7比较了很久,最终因为后者的舒适问题(重量跟压力点)选择了这个

Audio-Technica

缺点:

外壳部分的形状不适合小耳朵的人,带着会压到耳朵canal导致发红跟痛

耳机跟线非常敏感,摩擦到衣服跟在部分器械使用会有噪音

BASS等中音表现不太好

优点:

一般你问懂耳机的人,说你喜欢听日本歌,他们都会向你推荐铁三角

音质比较偏高音,特别是女主唱表现非常好(固定genre爱好者)

内耳用的耳塞可以拆换,有4个size,找到合适的话对隔音效果也不错

昨天无聊浏览中介看看有没啥网站可以购买广告位的...

结果中病毒了, 全屏的warning, 连system manager都不能打开

无奈只好log off然后等后台程式关得差不多的时候点取消

于是马上跑了两个杀毒程序...结果还是没成功

因为不想乱搞registry的文件..果断重装(当然是保留文件那个),把boot option设置为DISC优先

于是意想不到的意外发生了!

结果format drive之后卡在reinstall里,一直维持在0%不动...等了一个下午还是一样结果...

没办法只能重新跑,结果理所当然地不能正常开机..

重新安装系统后打开一看...

呵呵呵...哈哈哈哈...哈哈哈哈!!!...

我所有资料, 文件, 网站程式, 编程, 歌...等等..全没了!! (要是知道就会事先备份一下)

哈哈哈啊哈哈.....哈哈哈哈!! (有句话说的真对, 人遇到非常震惊的大事之后结果会大笑...)

花木蘭從軍

听闻花木兰决定代替自己从军,老父泪流满面。

“可是女儿,拉壮丁的那些家伙也不是白痴,他们如何会看不出你是女儿身?”

“爹爹放心,我自有办法。”

不久那些人来了,

刚进门就看到花木兰拿手指戳着两颊说:“欢迎大哥哥么么哒~”

“喔喔!这么可爱一定是男孩子!”

于是花木兰被带走了。。

Originally from a light novel

Oda nobuna

General ★★★★★

Recommend to those who like me love war genre and battle strategies

The anime sometimes popup some event image as mentioned by our main char(monkey) are from the game Nobunaga no yabou (did Koei(the game maker) dropped some money into it for advertise? I don't know)

the wars make my heart pounding and wanting to play the game again (yes I have killed some great deal of time with it before, it also taught me a lot of sengoko histories) unfortunately it's been sometimes since previous version, no new work yet (sob

Story ★★★★★

Unique and interesting course of events while respecting the historical ending of the Japanese Sengoku era

However, our main char who is from the future, and in favor of Nobuna he prevented some bad events from happening, e.g rescue of Saitou. his move should slightly change the history as we later started seeing some unique events

Most famous characters get female forms in the anime and eventually turn into a pattern when you see a cute enemy, then you know she is gonna turn into our side (or our main char's harem?)

Design ★★★★★

Another thing I love is the illustration and design done by Miyama zero (one of my favorite artists)

Fabulous costumes, character designs and art style

CG ★★★★★

Very nice graphic to set off battle scenes, costumes

as well as keeping the art style with detailed motions

Music ★★★★★

Awesome song and BGMs

OP - "Link" by Aimi

and ED - "Hikari" by Mizuta Makino

Just by looking at the enemies that are still there, there is a lot of room for new season

and I will be glad to see if there is one coming

Eudemon

天神乱漫



General ★★★★☆
The version I have played is portable ver, since PSP doesn't allow H games
By the end of each flag, there are some scenes just feel so unnatural
(I think this PC to PSP part is poorly done, i know they have to remove those scenes but should at least do some workaround to fill those details)
So to those who want to play a 'complete' version I suggest you go ahead for PC ver (cough..

Story ★★★★☆
Subtly used the setting to plot the story
Love those scenes where sana(さな) glues to the player (that's the 1st flag i have completed, working on other ATM)

Funny ★★★★★
Like above, the funny scenes nicely plotted by the main character's unfortunate curse setting

Design ★★★★★
Good amount of cloths and character expressions for interchange

CG ★★★★☆
Art style bit toward Loli-con, drawing is good but bit less CG images

Music ★★★☆☆
Average OP/EDs, and very few BGMs
Though I like one the daily BGMs, very joyful

Plot


主人公千歳春樹は、生まれながら不幸な体質の持ち主であった。しかし、長年の不幸を経験している本人は、何時しかそれを「平穏な日 常」と認識していた。そんなある日、更なる「不幸(?)」が突然やって来る。自分宛に「生物」とシールが貼られた大きな荷物が届けられたのだ。不審がりな がら開けると、中から神を自称する少女が姿を現して、こう宣言する。
「お主を天罰から守るために来た」
……こうして、春樹の不幸で平凡な日常は、更に加速していく。
Eudemon

horaizon2 MAIN WEB



Story ★★★★★
The story involves reenact human history, yes the same stuff as on our textbook
therefore we know how it happens and ends, but the ways they are done by the Anime is very imaginative and surprising
For example, the fight scenes of main battle in the second season - reenactment of the Invincible Fleet Naval War: Musashi as mercenary of England VS Blessing fleet of Tres Espana
P.S pretty funny for Toori (main char) running around naked most of the time (even in International Meeting with national leaders)

General ★★★★★
Again, excellent battle system
Just like the first season, fast moving plot
Although again, the story setting is very hard to understand unless you read the novel or do some research
BUT, very very informative

Design ★★★★★
Fabulous weapon designs merge from historical items for instances: Excalibur from England, San Martin from Spain (Tres Espana)
and beautiful yet cool character costumes

CG ★★★★★
Nicely done CG to enhance the battle system

Music ★★★★★
Absolutely awesome BGMs, as of now total 2 OST releases together containing 4 CDs total almost hundred sound tracks
Most, yes I mean most of them are stunning!
Plus I don't really like the OP but the 2 EDs are above average

咲 Saki Achiga-hen

Originally from a Manga

Achiga-hen is a side story of Saki main story

gallery_1_3_188182.jpg

General ★★★★★

Gossip: Saki is the Anime that led me to learn majong

An anime that makes you want to imitate is a successful anime (at least to me :P)

Story ★★★★☆

NOTE: Only the digital players like Nodoka, Touka, Yumi Etc are playing the realistic majong

By digital player I mean players who practiced majong tons of times to improve the chance of winning rate by switching melds depending on the situation

The others like Saki, Koromo, Toki Etc (who can keep getting 嶺上開花(flower blooms on ridge), 海底撈月(drag moon out of deep sea), and able to see one round ahead Etc)

These girls are just cheating ! (don't hit me

CG ★★★★★

One major selling point to this Anime is they made playing majong like fighting battles

And bunch special abilities that the characters have (yes in reality they're cheating lol)

Design ★★★★☆

Most character wear short SHORT skirts to the point you can see their butts (more obvious in the manga (Saki main illustrated by Ritz Kobayashi))

Makes you wonder why pantsu doesn't show up

and by the way, you might notice the art style of manga for side story looks different than main story

Because it is illustrated by Aguri Igarashi, not Ritz Kobayashi (story by him(her?))

Music ★★★★★

Same BGM inherent from Main, absolutely good tracks

2 ED and 1 OP

especially "Futuristic Player" BGM starts when episode ends, very agitating, although the singing part in my opinion kind of ruined it a bit

See you again in season 2, as well as main story season 2

PLOT

The Achiga Girls' Academy in Nara once defeated regional mahjong powerhouse Bansei High School. It advanced into the national team semifinals but lost to the eventual champion, and the mahjong club was later disbanded.

Six years later, elementary school student Shizuno Takakamo befriends transfer student Nodoka Haramura. The two eventually enter Achiga Girls', but Nodoka transfers out of the school in the second year.

When Shizuno sees Nodoka on television the following year as the national middle school individual mahjong champion, she decides to revive Achiga's mahjong club.

English title: Place to Place

Originally from a manga

acchikocchi

General ★★★★☆

Good for people who want to pass time and relax

Story ★★★★☆

Daily scenes filled with jokes/netas and main character's cute appeals

It seems like the female main char is already dating the main male char since the start of anime

CG ★★★★☆

Chibi version characters, average amount costumes

Design ★★★★☆

I personally like the setting of main character pops up cat ear and tail occasionally

Music ★★☆☆☆

Not any noticeable BGM, Below average cute themed OP/ED

Eudemon

Working!!

General ★★★★☆

Originally from a manga

for both seasons

gallery_1_3_848540.jpg

Story ★★★★☆

It's fun to watch, good for pass time

Not decent setting, background

just about daily restaurant lives of some inordinate workers

Graphic ★★★★★

Done well for display some detail movements

for example, skirt will move/flutter when character bend, too bad they don't show pantsu (nose bleed

Design ★★★★☆

The staff clothes are ok, and different sets of clothes when they're out

Music ★☆☆☆☆

No BGM(or nothing i can recall), and some ed/op are bad

One of the selling point of this anime is definitely moe

but the op/ed especially in the second second overdid it

Fun ★★★★☆

CV ★★★★☆

Plot

Set in a family restaurant in Hokkaido, the northern prefecture of Japan, 16-year-old high school student Souta Takanashi works part-time along with his strange co-workers: Popura Taneshima, a high school girl who's a year older than Souta, yet easily mistaken for an elementary/middle schooler, and Kyoko Shirafuji, the 28-year old store manager who doesn't bother to do any work at all.

Title translated into English would be:

"Bunny drop"

Originally from manga, has an Anime

General ★★★★☆

gallery_1_2_177870.jpg

Story ★★★★☆

A recommend for those who like warm movie

Being a movie, there are a lot of scenes got cutoff, I think the length of a movie is too short to tell the warmth of this work

That's why I like the Anime better

Music ★★★☆☆

The insert song really sucks

They use the same ending song in the movie as for the Anime, quite an aftertaste

It is a good song, especially the lyrics

Plot

The film is about Daikichi, an unmarried office worker with no girlfriend, who ends up living with the six-year-old illegitimate child of his dead grandfather. This girl is called Rin, and Daikichi suddenly declares that he will raise her himself while his relatives discuss arrangements to put her in a foster home.

Ultimate Madoka

Some of my friends are organizing an event to bring figures out for picture taking

which is going to happen very soon, by then I will have more photos available but the main issue is this figure is huge (the biggest one in my collection)

and as well as my other figures

P.S. should have received this figure a week ago, but due to miss delivery and I just found the notice today so.. (ノ´∀`*)

anyways here comes the photos

gallery_1_2_1999809.jpg

The post office lady said: "This package comes from Japan, a surprise present hey"

true that, my friend bought this for me as a gift (thank you friend (*´ω`*)

gallery_1_2_2727308.jpg

gallery_1_2_211573.jpg

I will take some photos of my room some other time, since it does not relate to this topic

In conclusion, The figure is very well made (the second most expensive one I have atm)

and features 2 different bows, the arrow and wings came separately, you can to put them on

the right hand is rotatable too (provide different shooting angles? (´・ω・`)

At last, staying home, cook for myself

here is a picture of my lunch

Title translated into English would be:

"The recollection of a pilot", Wiki and ANN use "The Princess and the Pilot"

General ★★★★☆

gallery_1_3_11073.jpg

Story ★★★★☆

Usually people that are watching this movie would think the pilot will successfully NTR the prince's princess

The pilot decided to let the princess go even though she wanted to stay with him (C'mon pilot boy)

(The story would be more romantic if it was the opposite, but this ending does leave us some surprises)

I personally don't like the setting of half-blood of two races being the lowest status of the society but racism does happen in life... well

Fight ★★★★☆

This is one reason why this product is good for movie not anime series

The flight fights are very cool, but there are limited strategies you can use

people will get get bored from watching same fight scenes for a while

Minus point on when he dodges bullets shooting from tens(can't remember the exact number) of enemy planes

just same scenes repeat over and over

Design ★★★★☆

Character design is more toward reality. Unlike some anime fans, I don't dislike this drawing style, that's why I like Bakuman's as well

To the Loli-cons - ahah, not your steak

Music ★★★☆☆

Nothing to talk about

Plot

As a beautiful daughter of the noble family del Moral, Fana was proposed by Prince Carlo, who is the crown prince of their country Levamme. However, since Levamme is at war with Amatsuvian, the marriage had to wait until the war ends. Meanwhile, as a bestado, the lowest caste in Levamme, Charles had always dreamed of flying and eventually became the ace pilot of the air force. Although he was often mistreated, a glorious chance came about when the Amatsuvian bombarded del Moral's home in order to get rid of the future empress. Charles was then entrusted with the top secret mission of delivering the princess to the prince.

Be careful when trading with someone in game

I just got scammed for 1 million gold

And then I went search in the forum, found that

people can use 3rd party scrip to remove item from trade window when it is finalized (or before) by fast switching

the trade system is not suppose to let one able to use 3rd party script to remove (fast switching) item after accept button is clicked

thus this is a game's technical issue

Just submitted a ticket, hope they will restore or just rollback my account (each account is limited to 2 rollbacks)

meanwhile, ima continue working on the site

good luck everyone

----------

new:

and before the game had infinite copy weapon/armor, auction house bugs

plus bunch botting/hacking/gold farmer we already know

the scam happened yesterday right after i talked to a friend that's about to quit the game, funny thing is i told him that "i'm hooked to it since diablo 1&2, even it is failing i want to see it til the end with my own eye"

but now it just makes me sign

----------

update:

i got a reply from bliz, all he said was apologize/thanks, and bunch useless info, and not even mention what to do with the cheater

i shot them a reply saying that doesn't solve my issue, and the cheater should be punished since i'm not the only one fallen into his victim

and then they replied said that they can't do anything restoration or rollback (kool, my gold is forever gone)

and sound like they may do some action to that cheater but today i log in n see he is still online (yeah, rly?)

double sign..

The road

Originally from novel of same title

gallery_1_2_21746.jpg

General ★★★★★

This is a very good survival, and environmental type movie

It also makes us rethink our environment today

Story ★★★★★

The Earth suffered great disaster (there isn't any detail about the disaster, maybe the book mentioned it a bit)

anyways, it is not about when the disaster happening, it's after the disaster

no more crops, plants, people started to eat people because of starvation

The story is about a journey of a father and his son heading south and to the coast trying to survive

CG/Music/some scenes ★★★☆☆

Plot

An unnamed father and his young son journey across a grim post-apocalyptic landscape, some years after a major unexplained cataclysm has destroyed civilization and most life on Earth. The land is filled with ash and devoid of living animals and vegetation. Many of the remaining human survivors have resorted to cannibalism, scavenging the detritus of city and country alike for flesh. The boy's mother, pregnant with him at the time of the disaster, gave up hope and committed suicide some time before the story begins, despite the father's pleas. Much of the book is written in the third person, with references to "the father" and "the son" or to "the man" and "the boy".

Realizing that they would not survive the oncoming winter where they are, the father takes the boy south along empty roads towards the sea, carrying their meager possessions in their knapsacks and in a supermarket cart. The man coughs blood from time to time and eventually realizes he is dying, yet still struggles to protect his son from the constant threats of attack, exposure, and starvation.

They have a revolver, but only two rounds. The boy has been told to use the gun on himself if necessary to avoid falling into the hands of cannibals. During their trek, the father uses one bullet to kill a man who stumbles upon them and poses a grave threat. Fleeing from the man's companions, they have to abandon most of their possessions. As they are near death from starvation, the man finds an unlooted underground bunker filled with food and other necessities. However, it is too exposed, so they only stay a few days.

In the face of these obstacles, the man repeatedly reassures the boy that they are "the good guys" who are "carrying the fire". On their journey, the duo scrounge for food, evade roving bands, and contend with horrors such as a newborn infant roasted on a spit, and captives being gradually harvested as food.

Although the man and the boy eventually reach the sea, their situation does not improve. They head back inland, but the man succumbs to an illness. Before he dies, the father tells the boy that he can continue to speak with him in his imagination after he is gone. The boy holds wake over the corpse for days, with no idea of what to do next.

On the third day, the grieving boy encounters a man who says he has been tracking the pair. The man, who has a woman and two children of his own, a boy and a girl, convinces the boy that he is one of the "good guys" and takes him under his protection.

This is a collection of around 3 weeks daily

no wait, i wasn't being lazy, i have been working my ass off since the vacation (cough)

so here we go

gallery_1_2_2543607.jpg

A Christmas event (karaoke) me and like 14 of my friends have been preparing for quite a while

unfortunately, i didn't get to go because the night before i had a sore throat, and the next day a cold that kept me in bed

TES, according to the pictures, they had a gift share, and this is what i wasn't able to give out

gallery_1_2_2505227.jpg

the direct translation of the text i wrote literary means to throw away your dignity

meaning to be open, like 'really OPEN' (´・ω・`)

gallery_1_2_901820.jpg

and yes, little while before, the dog i took care of as for like a part-time job

I guess you don't wanna open this blog post and the first thing you see is my face so i moved the order for this one

anyways, i wasn't able to continue dog host because my dad was pissed about floor being scratched by their nails (´;ω;`)

gallery_1_2_883353.jpg

too bad for the products i bought for taking care of dogs, cause i thought i was gonna able to continue it

the reason why i started this is i can able to continue programming for the site while earning some cash to keep the site running

and also, because i love dogs

however, in the end i gave these products for free to my first client

gallery_1_2_1340263.jpg

if you were to ask me "you want coffee or tea?" i would definitely say tea

me liking tea has been decades but only recently i purchased full equipment to be a 'real tea drinker' (イェー~)

gallery_1_2_2629088.jpg

from left to right: green, black and oolong tea

gallery_1_2_2027181.jpg

due to last time i didn't go, so i organized another karaoke

let's start off where we had lunch -> 回転寿司!rotating sushi (a very popular sushi serving method in Japan, but very hard to find it in America, even-though we do have tons of sushi restaurants)

so basically you can pick up whatever you want from the rotating platform, and the price will be counted by the number and color your disks

of course you can order things directly from the waiter like regular restaurants

day view of manhattan

gallery_1_2_3031195.jpg

just a demonstration of one of the pages from the karaoke book, you may be able to see the page number if you enlarge the image

they have two books (japanese) like this, total thousands of pages

unlike some modern ktv places that have digital touch machine where you can easily navigate and find songs with other useful settings

this place still uses the traditional (although not that old) way where you have to find song off the book and enter the number yourself

the reason why we came here is this is the only place we can find tons of Jap songs (as it's opened by Japanese people) _(:3 ⌒゙)_

gallery_1_2_3825515.jpg

night view of manhattan

gallery_1_2_1634283.jpg

supper -> カツ丼 (breaded pork on rice) (in-front of me is udon)

gallery_1_2_2634188.jpg

just a day ago, we went to play badminton

lunched at a north korean style hot pot place I usually go

--> (playing badminton) for 5 hours -->

ever since the winter break started, i have been staying home programming for our site

so the lack of doing sport resulted me next day muscle aches (although same thing has been said by the six that went with me)

gallery_1_2_115545.jpg

lastly, dinnered at a BBQ place, plus one friend that bumped in later, 8 of us had to squeeze into one table

and we were battling for cooking spaces, but it was fun

gallery_1_2_4957.jpg

almost forgot to mention, i wrote 2 free plugins(scripts) recently

not a bad download amount for couple days in one site since release (consider it took more than 1 day to be approved)

and i'm quite glad since some of them replied my support topic and thanked me for my work (´・ω・`)

the once every year Chinese moon cake eating day is about to come?

002

a festival since ancient China.

don't really like these kinda sweet tasting cakes, but might as well enjoy it cuz i only get to eat it once every year

(P.S. normally they have brown outer layer, and harden egg yolks inside, the one i'm eating is called 'ice moon cake' which became popular in the modern days{recent years?})

...

...

...

now featuring H master drama vol 1

003

well... i guess i was just bored.. (hey don't throw empty can at me!

...

...ouch! (that doesn't mean u can throw non-empty cans

to be continued (maybe?

Eudemon

today after a doctor appointment, went to the bookstores in the city

It seems like due to Japanese yen price drop or whatever reason, magazines and some books have price reduced by 15%

so I went to check the latest release of Dengeki(電撃) G'S like usual and found that each one has a note under the plastic wrapper

it prints "The attached figure can not be sold in the US due to law restriction"

unfortunately the store doesn't allow photo taking, else I would take a picture

here is this issue's image taken from their site

gallery_1_2_200502.jpg

now, I can guess the reason why it can't be sold in the US is not because it is a little buster's naked figure

but the naked figure looks like a child

(you probably know the majority Japanese drawing styles make characters look like low age range (especially genre: loli) which caused quite some problems with other nations (we being one of them) who take child rights seriously)

anyhow, even the store drop the price for this particular magazine for 20%, I still didn't buy it (see how important the attached gift is for magazine buyers)

gallery_1_2_517822.jpg

Dinner: ramen + beer (because they have a special price when purchased with ramen) + nikuman (肉まん)

gallery_1_2_1227528.jpg

here are the stuff I bought today

The game is out for few days now, and I just started playing it (too much things going on and so little time)

For those of you who already watched the anime

It's kinda long if i have to write what happened, so basically

After they beat the final boss (game maker) at 75th floor, system error occured

most skills, items are lost and they stuck at 76th floor and decided to finish off 100 floors

according to one of the spoiler videos i have seen, the error caused the loss kirito and asuna's marriage data

so in the game you can aim for a different main female character

my subject is of course asuna hehe :33:

about the system, kind of obvious, unlike the anime, upon death your char goes back the the last save point

note that if you partner dies, it's also game over (happened to me once with asuna, not sure about other char, probably same for all main chars)

attacking and defensing is automated, I can see this serves two points

one the console (I have an old PSP 2k) won't be able to support full 3d battle

second to keep player from bored out (from clicking the attack button n times in every battle)

instead you get to use sword skills and battles skills, and communicating with your partner (e.g switching, healing, attacking from the back..)

although I only played it couple hours (bit slow too, because it is in Japanese, I read a little slow and once a while find a word that i don't understand, but i still glad that since i started taking jap classes now i'm able to play jap games with no problem)

anyways, already feeling a decent game, really looking forward to continue playing :20:

General ★★★★★

Majority of the scene plays took place in VRMMORPG (Virtual Reality Massively Multiplayer Online Role-Playing Game)

The first thing I have to say about this Anime is the world setting is definitely fantastic. (´・ω・`)

The fighting system broke the traditional scenes with the MMO setting

For example, battle in regular anime, if the main character's heart is stabbed, or if the body opens up a big wound

it will definitely weaken him, and in most cases the end of the fight (in real life: death)

but Sword Art Online (SAO) as a game can represent this element in HP, brings battle into its full potential

and they don't just limit on this one factor, e.g when their hand is cut they lose it (although it can be restored later if the character still alive)

also weapons, armors and food, even pets are breakable.

not to mention potions, skills, poisons like paralysis that often used by the cheaters in the Anime

together they bring battle into next level

Story ★★★★★

If you have read my other reviews, you know I don't write plot summaries

in fact I avoid to tell the plot story as much as possible, so that those who haven't watch it yet won't be spoiled

while my review is focusing on the details and important elements that made up the show hoping it can also give those who already watched it a meditation (・ω<)

The 25 episode length definitely didn't give the animator enough time for fillers

Course of events seems bit rush, especially the first part of the anime when they try to clear the world of sword art online

It quickly skipped through many floors leaves viewer a bit empty feeling

Other than beating the game, the most important scenes of part one no doubt is the love chemistry between our main char Kirito and Asuna !! (≧∇≦)/

The love scenes of them falling in love and getting married at first is heart touching and later sadden the viewers when they got separated

which makes me feel deeper connected to the character's feeling as Kirito later returned back to MMO Alfheim to rescue Asuna

P.S. the way I watch anime (in this case I finished it in 3 days) has boosted up my feeling since my plot memories are still fresh

The most important moment in my opinion is when the raider team was having trouble with a boss

and both of them were called back to front-line after a short vacation, when Kirito heard about the danger of the boss they were about to face

He wanted Asuna to stay in the base and await for his return, but she refused and replied

"If I stayed, waited, and if you didn't come back, I would suicide"

These lines really moved me

Setting ★★★★★

So I decided to rework the structure of my reviews, now I will include a rating and talk on the leading element of the Anime

In sword art online, I think the most appealing factor is their setting

Although as a computer science major, I feel a little awkward when Akihiko (the scientist behind the game)

who locked up all ten thousand players and give them death penalty by sending strong signal to the brain for dying in game or disconnect from the server

the reason is, being a crime in this large scale should bring international top computer pro to hack into the server

or track down the source and disable that functionality locally

Apart from the things I have already mentioned above

The makers really made very good use of the setting of the world of game

PK (player killing), item, party, guild, boss, level etc system

These elements are indispensable and bring more color into the show that created many different user types like

the bads: guilds that focus on killing other players for their money and items, cheaters who try to force players who fell asleep in the public into dual

the neutral: players who have adapted to the life style of the game and want to live a normal life there

the goods: the raider team which both our main characters are in, who try to complete the game so that everyone can be released from this world

and the smiths who work hard making/fixing weapon and armor to support those in the front-line

The contrast of Asuna being the guild raider team captain who known as Senko(閃光) Asuna in the first game

and later being imprison in a cage like a bird who has no strength to fight is a quite interesting concept

And I think most of you would agree that the setting and story of first game is better than the second game

almost forgot to mention, going back to the marriage system, they even have kid, yes "KID!!" キタ━━━━(゚∀゚)━━━━!!

The creation of the AI (artificial intelligence)program Yui and she considering Kirito and Asuna to be her papa and mama bring many joys to the Anime

P.S In sword art online, I was exciting to see the society and their friends' reactions when they both get married but that never happened

this is one of the pity for a rushed series

Design / CG ★★★★★

Here comes another change I did for this review and will continue to be (hopefully, positively) for the future reviews

Since a good design needs good CG to maintain, and same for the reverse case

also these two elements are very close related, I have decided to put them together to talk about it

It's very easy to notice the main character's change of cloth/armor as he advanced through the dungeons

With the fabulous look of costume, weapons, united guild costumes, number of monster designs and beautiful environments

together with the awesome CG to bring them all alive, no doubt they deserve full star rating (・∀・)モエッ

I personally love watching the scenes where Asuna sticks to Kirito in bed (FFF tan(misery sound echo in the air): burn! burn! BURN!

Music / Sound ★★★★★

Despite there ain't many memorable BGMs, the sound effects (especially battle sounds) has filled this small vacancy

The OP/ED songs are very nice too

OP 1 crossing field by LISA

ED 1 Yume Sekai (ユメセカイ) by Tomatsu Haruka (戸松 遥)

OP 2 Innocence by Eir Aoi 藍井 エイル

ED 2 Overfly by Luna Haruna 春奈るな

P.S 戸松遥 does the voice for Asuna (she is one of the people that I like who keeps the jobs of CV and singer, after Mizuki Nana (水樹 奈々)

End:

This is the longest review I have ever written, hope you enjoy it (-ω☆)キラリ
