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...)

Today was a busy day, woke up early in the morning

spent whole day doing presentation and exam plus my boss' "come to work" email spam, was about to head home and noticed car key was lost

so I spent another hour running around the campus where I've been and asking the security guards, finally found it

thank you so much to the anonymous person who turned it in (/ω\)

btw this is my second time this year lost and found my key, the first time was dropped in the snow where I spent two hours to dig it out

今天很忙, 大清早起来

一整天在做演讲稿跟考试加上我老板的夺魂工作邮件, 当我要回家的时候发现车钥匙弄丢了

于是又花了一个多小时走遍校园我呆过的地方,跟询问保安,最后终于找到了

非常感谢那位陌生同学把钥匙交给保安

附带一提,这已经是我今年第二次弄丢钥匙了,第一次是弄丢在雪地后来花了两个小时给挖出来OTL

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:

Legend Proof and deck list plus win-rate against all class graph: http://imgur.com/a/VYC90 (all games are recorded in ranked)

According to the record, it took me total 300+ games to reach legend (-_-)/~~~ピシー!ピシー!

Just to clarify, I did not make the deck myself

Warrior deck credit to Sjow's original deck

Druid deck credit to neviilz2 made that post just couple days ago

So why only showing 29 cards?

Yes, I find most people post complete decks

I think this can create a completed figure for the players trying out new deck and they maybe scared to modify them

guides on how to mulligan is all over the internet so I'm not going to talk about them

but I'm going to show you card choices based on current meta due to time shift

that's why I leave 1 slot for you to adjust, and it is easy to understand

but when to tech cards in/out?

I switch cards base on the opponents I see at the time when I play

for example, I play 8 games in the afternoon, 5+ of them are aggro face rush, I will tech in aggro counter cards

and then at night, I find 5+ of them are control style, then I will tech in e.g black knight

the key is find the right card that can help you beat most decks you see at the time when you play, not try to win all of them

to find out which one is the right card to swap, see below

Let's start with warrior (got me from all the way to rank 2): deck / win-rate

when facing a lot mech heavy decks e.g mech mage, mech druid - add mind control tech or second brawl

to better understand the card choice, let's look at their objective, in this case is to flood the board with minions that are not cheap enough to be removable by whirlwinds

when facing a lot hunters / zoo / paladin / most aggro deck - add whirlwind

creepers, muster for battles, imps, all the 2/1s, snakes

when facing a lot warrior / handlock - add second big game hunter

eh... kind of obvious

when facing a lot control-ish / midrange decks / especially druid - add black knight, considerable swap iron juggernaut with sylvanas

black knight chop chop (゚Д゚)ノ

bad match ups: priest, mech mage

Now let's talk about druid (got me from rank 2 to legend): deck / win-rate

when facing a lot of mech heavy decks / paladin / zoo / hunter / shaman - add second mind control tech

the nature of this deck is taunt up and have your opponent to do the trading instead of pointing your face

these flood the board type of deck is basically free minion for you to grab

plus it is not bad against others as well, I find a lot of people overlooked the second one (*´ω`)

when facing a lot warrior / handlock - same

the rest - add black knight

since now a lot of people carry it due to rise of druid

even it is not druid, belcher is more than good enough, and chopping a giant is the dream \(゜ロ\)(/ロ゜)/

this card is also very important when playing against

you always want to drop your cheaper cost taunt first to bait out black knight to save your ancient of war

why no dr.boom in this deck?

this card is certainly a very popular choice nowadays for most decks, therefore the increased number of big game hunters

if you look back at this deck, we have no card that is above 7 damage, so screw bgh haha, jk

back match ups: freeze mage, handlock, the summon a lot of copy mage from echo and duplicate (don't know the exact name, it is not really miling tho)

again, I encourage you to modify your deck to better adapt to the environment

there are numerous tools that can help you track your games, the one I'm using the hearthstone deck tracker

you can look back at the record to see what kinds of decks you're facing the most to adjust your cards

My stream: http://www.twitch.tv/eudemon

I don't have webcam right now, but I plan to adding one in the future

for now you may enjoy my play and my anime music collection (*'ω'*)

Good luck on the climb!

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

gallery_1_2_1972633.jpg

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_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・`)

I got a call few days ago from one of the bookstores I usually go to

General ★★★★★

was debating between 4 and 5, maybe i should make a 4.5 lol

while i was reading the staff list in the end, i noticed Makoto Shinkai (Director) pop up in multiple sections

hard worker hey, his works are really decent and meaningful

Story ★★★★★

The story is pushed by the nostalgia of living people to those who passed away

Character&Creature Design ★★★☆☆

For characters, I guess it is more toward public(the masses), people who used to watch Anime may feel it's not detail enough

For creatures, well, fair..

CG ★★★★★

Just like any other makoto's work, the CG is incredibly good

Easy to follow through, pretty well done for the length of a movie

Music ★★★★☆

BGM good, but not incredibly noticeable

The ending song is pretty decent as well - "Hello Goodbye & Hello" by Anri Kumaki

The lyrics of the song is also pretty matching the story

Plot

The story centers on Asuna, a girl who spends her solitary days listening to the mysterious music emanating from the crystal radio she received from her father as a memento. However, she embarks on a journey of adventure to meet a boy again, and thus comes to know the cruelty and beauty of the world, as well as loss.

Fight Scenes ★★★★★

my first impression of the anime is the fight style so special

unlike many other anime's fight scenes, you will never get tired of watching this

each character has one or more unique fighting systems, for example: dance system, enshrine, lance, money etc...

some have mouse, summons like mare, slime?, Qgirls etc...

and special weapon types call Taizai Buso and Shinkaku Buso

here are my top 3 fights

gallery_1_3_37603.jpg

Aoi Kimi (Dance system) VS Honda Futayo (Lance system)

this is the first anime i've ever seen uses a "dance" in fight

the DJ version of passing song rocks > <

with Futayo using Shinkaku Buso: Tonbokiri <-- don't you think this name is so cool! Ton-Bo-KiRi

gallery_1_3_266068.jpg

Oriotorai Makiko VS Student Group

well, this is the first episode, basically show the diversity of their fighting systems

Oritorai is the class' homeroom teacher, well skilled to where she is called a "real amazon"

gallery_1_3_106105.jpg

Kazuno VS Musashi

kazuno (servant of the Honda family, with Honda wife's soul?) - A robot that has antlers on the head

has unique skill of control gravitation force

gallery_1_3_331236.jpg

Design ★★★★☆

Best pet - Asama Tomo's mouse (cute post: applaud)

Graphic ★★★★★

A graphic that catches up their fights

Music ★★★★★

Definitely love the background soundtrack by Tatsuya Katou (i went search for music work done by this guy cause of this anime)

also the ending theme song (the one that starts with mouses) is very good too

Story ★★★★☆

If you haven't watch this anime yet, i recommend read the light novel first

or prepare to get lost XD

That's the end of my review, see you guys on second season

Plot:

In the far future, humans abandon a devastated Earth and traveled to outer space. However, due to unknown phenomenon that prevents them from traveling into space, humanity returns to Earth only to find it inhospitable except for Japan. To accommodate the entire human population, pocket dimensions are created around Japan to house in the populace. In order to find a way to return to outer space, the humans began reenacting human history according to the Holy Book Testament. But in the year 1413 of the Testament Era, the nations of the pocket dimensions invade and conquer Japan, dividing the territory into feudal fiefdoms and forcing the original inhabitants of Japan to leave. It is now the year 1648 of the Testament Era, the refugees of Japan now live in the city ship Musashi, where it constantly travels around Japan while being watched by the Testament Union, the authority that runs the re-enactment of history. However, rumors of an apocalypse and war begins to spread when the Testament stops revealing what happens next after 1648. Taking advantage of this situation, Tori Aoi, head of Musashi Ariadust Academy's Supreme Federation and President of the student council, leads his fellow classmates to use this opportunity to regain their homeland.

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.

Went to the cinema last week with friends to watch this awesome movie

while the a lot of content of the movie has not much to say, it is those irregular type of storyline, where you can't really tell what happened at every detail
but I can tell you, the story itself gave me a big impact

the story is a continuation from the last two movies or the Anime series (since they are almost identical)
=============spoil part============================
the plot starts after Madoka changed the theory of the universe where soul gems will disappear in the end instead of turning every magical girls into witches, Homura calls this phenomenon "haname madoka"

Incubators, however, wanted to observe this phenomenon, homura who appeared to be the only one who knows about this, when her soul gem is about to disappear, they isolated it from all matters
ultimately, their final objective is to capture and have control over "haname madoka"

on the other hand, Homura created a completely clone of the city where she met Madoka within the seal
of course with her being existed in that city (since being able to see Madoka once again is her wish)
after found out Incubators' conspiracy, she forced herself to turn into a witch, wanted to forever be locked in that isolated space being a witch so that she could protect Madoka

her friends who have been lured into that seal, after knowing the truth, broke the enchantment so that "haname madoka" could reach her (those who have been captured by the isolated space including madoka's family and her teacher, and a new character "bebe")

here comes a turning point, when everyone thought this was going to be a happy end right there
Homura held the hands of Madoka who reached out to her, and again, like what Madoka did, changed the theory of the universe, but turning herself into "evil"
=============spoil part end=============================
These changes of mind scenes in plot really creates a big impact to the audiences

As for the music, I have noticed that they have arranged few old BGMs
and the songs are awesome, expecially the ending song (君の銀の庭 by kalafina)
as I listen to this song right now, all the scenes come back to me in my head (memories, whoa)

Here is the sad part, Homura's ending is so that Madoka will not be forever alone and will not be forgotten by everyone
and Madoka's ending was to end Homura's forever loop of trying to save Madoka
Both of them tried to save each other, but both endings, sadly, they can not be together

Conclusion: still a sad story
Eudemon

Let me just quickly summarize the last few episodes

setting is the same virtual game world

Our main character "Asuna" met a girl named "Yuuki" through a dual and helped her clear a dungeon boss with her friends

When Asuna got denied further communication from Yuuki, she found out Yuuki has final stage aid and have been in bed for 3 whole years

Since then, Asuna used the terminal machine made by Kirigaya

to let Yuuki enjoy the real world, everyday Asuna carried it to transferred vision and sound between Yuuki

in the end, Yuuki lived through the full 3 months of life that have been announced

now, I really want to talk about the connection between the 3rd ED song and the plot

the name of the song is "シルシ" which means "sign/proof" I can't think of any better word due to my poor English

the first person word used in the lyrics is "ボク" which is also what Yuuki used to call herself

"ボクが生きたシルシ" translates to: the proof/sign of my living

there are two signs/proofs of Yuuki has lived in this world we can tell from the plot

first, the reason why she wanted to clear the boss is to have her and her friend's name listed in the huge stone board

second, her original sword skill - "mother's rosario" that was gifted to Asuna

流れてく時間(とき)は容赦無く いつかボクらをさらってくから - the flowing of time will eventually tear us apart with no mercy

represents her disease is taking her life away as time passes

this one is pretty straight forward to understand, there are other parts of the lyrics also link to the story and I'm not gonna talk about all

when I first listened to the song I was only enjoying the melody but once I knew the story

this feel carried out by this synergy between the plot and the lyrics has stunned me

I love songs that have connections to the stories, in this case I think it is very nicely done

here is a link to full lyrics if anyone interested - http://eudemon.org/lyrics.html/_/%E3%82%B7%E3%83%AB%E3%82%B7-r186

还记得之前说的漫画店关门的事么

前不久收到个电话说有新店开张(原来我的会员资料被卖出去了!)

于是今天去上课顺便去看了一下, 貌似OK

买了3本书, 顺便又入了个会员

Unfortunately by the time I tried to purchase the ticket, the other 2 days were alrdy sold out

So I only went one day, altho I don't have time to go 3 days / 4 days with special offer (even tho many of my friends bought the 3 days' pass)

now, about the comic con, well, the first impression is... massive people !!

a lot of people think of Japanese manga/anime when they hear comic con, some places call it anime festival

in this place is a mix of Japanese and American stuff (I would say the Japanese stuff being the majority), and the pictures I took are all (mostly) Japs

anyhow, let the pictures do the talking

in the end I also took some pictures of new york city night views and the things I bought

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`*)

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

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)

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

A new headphone

Beats Studio 2013

IMG 0412

IMG 0347

And the old one I had is Bose AE2i

This is my first time trying out a noise cancelling headphone

At first I was not used to the hizz sound made by active noise cancelling

but it only lasted a day, plus, if you listen to music, you won't be able to hear that sound at all (unless you turn it to very low)

The battery will run around 10+hours, I am a pretty aggressive music listener

and it can last around 3 days withou charging it again :18:

The other good part of having a built in battery is, it doesn't drain my iPhone's battery when playing music

but drawback is once the battery power is out in the headphone, it will no longer function until I recharge it

Let's talk about the most important part that caused me to buy it

when putting it on, it immediately cancels around 75% of the noises

sometimes when I try to sleep in the school's library I like to just put it on for a better sleep quality

and when I am on a bus or somewhere with loud noises, I noticed I have 20% less volume than using my old headphone

(you know when you're in a noisy place, you need to turn the volume up to hear clearer sound)

what I like about my old is the surface that covers my ear

I wear glasses, while the beats headphone does pretty good job on confortness than most other on-ear headphone

my old bose headphone was even better

Lastly, since I always have this on my neck, I can feel a lot of sights of people looking at me :10:

(those who know me in personal know that this has became my symbol, I have been having an on-ear headphone around my neck wherever I go for more than two years now)

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

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。。

The road

Originally from novel of same title

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.

So I have decided to write site development updates before our official releases

and maybe in the future as well, yea~~ (ヽ´ω`)

(probably not all of them, because some i can update immediately in the annoucenment board, but i will write as much as i can)

Been writing the homepage for the past couple days

also fixing some layout issues, just yesterday I grabbed some of the codes I wrote, put into a plugin and released it over to the system site for free (like always)

the wiki (open database) that I have been teasing about is at the finalyzing stage

going to write a tab content bbcode to help member editing the content too (I will also write a resource page regarding how to use it)

and then, back to the shadow (´・ω・`)

変ゼミ

Originally from a manga

also known as Abnormal Physiology Seminar

gallery_1_3_168392.png

General ★★☆☆☆

The length of the TV anime is only half of regular anime

The OVA tend to get better in over-all quality, but in general, I won't recommend this to anyone

It almost made me quit watching it, but after a long time I finally finished it

Story ★★☆☆☆

Not a story type series, instead focus on short length pervert activities

You can still follow up even you don't watch the episodes in order

Hentai ★★★★★

Well, if you favorite this type of topic, there you go

Music ★☆☆☆☆

No BGM (or none I can recall)

OP/ED no good, I think the maker spent too much energy to show off CV moe points

Design ★★☆☆☆

Drawing style trend to a bit fatty (not that I'm racist, this style is definitely not my favor)

Plot

Nanako falls in love with Komugi and she joins a seminar which he enrolls, but the seminar is an abnormal seminar. Sexual harassment-like assignments and eccentric classmates confuse her.
