这是一场悲剧...

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...)

Just reached Legend yesterday, posting decks and card choice strategy

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!

Sword art online - ソードアート・オンライン

Originally from a light novel 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 below are sub'ed and raw anime torrents http://eudemon.org/topic/2374-raweng-sword-art-online-tv-rip-720p-complete/

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

The recollection of my recent daily (´・ω・`)

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 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 the direct translation of the text i wrote literary means to throw away your dignity meaning to be open, like 'really OPEN' (´・ω・`) 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;`) 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 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~) from left to right: green, black and oolong tea 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 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)_ night view of manhattan supper -> カツ丼 (breaded pork on rice) (in-front of me is udon) 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) 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 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・`)

Open back headphones - HD800, HE-400i, AD900X

This is just my review of recent personal owned HD800, HE-400i, AD900X Since I have owned many other headphones currently and in the past, I feel that I should have a good taste of the audio world   My desktop setup: P1 > M8 > VA2 This is the SMSL stack consists of power supply, DAC and AMP   Sennheiser HD800 was widely regarded as world's best consumer headphone when it was released Til today it is still considered by many, the best dynamic headphone in the world Sennheiser is known for making legendary audiophile headphones like HD600 and HD650 despite those two being over 20 years old, many still recommend them as one of the best entry level   Now back to the HD800 impressions The sound is crystal clear and accurate, use it to listen to music I have been listening for many time before and I would notice some details that I have never heard before Being a neutral headphone, suitable for almost any type of music No matter low, mid or treble, the headphone outputs amazing sound from whatever you throw at it This is very AMP picky headphone for very good reason, because it will show every single detail so having a bad source will give you same result (also poor recording as well) And I was skeptical when people told me you can hear the differences in bad recording VS master recording, I sincerely believe it now after listened to this phone even though you can drive it with your smartphone,but to get the best performance out of this pair of cans, you will need a dedicated setup   HD800 A/B compare against HE-400i (It is not a fair comparison, more like if you upgrade here is the main difference you will get) First thing I noticed is HD800 opens up a huge sound-stage Despite both headphones are fully open back design, meaning if I talk to someone while having them on my head, I would be able to hear every single word like I am not wearing anything at all So in comparison, the HE400i sounds narrow both headphones have great charity but unlike the HE400i HD800 has very bright and energetic vocal In comparison, when female vocals reach their highest point, that impact is missing in the HE400i, while it is well presented in the HD800 at high frequency it might be little piercing for some but it all comes down to personal preference In regard to this, I have to talk a little bit about myself, I love Japanese Anime and the shows are very much female voice centered when I watch anime with HD800, those brightness piercing female voices sound extremely satisfying   At comfort stage, HD800 is little lighter than HE400i in terms of weight However when I put it on my head, the comfort level is not just a little this is due to overall design of HD800 that evenly distributes its weight with headband and earpads it doesn't have the huge clamping force like HE400i Normally with other phones, you eye glasses bands with be pushed against your head and fixed at one location but due to the large ear cup and small clamp force, I am able to adjust my glasses with them on, however the small force still present If I wasn't wearing glasses, I would totally feel like the headphone melts on my head In terms of dimension, even though both are full size headphone, but HD800 ear cups are wider and longer than the HE400i When I try to watch Anime while laying my back against the back of my bed with resting pillow, I often find the HD800 hitting the pillow   For those of you interested in major change between the HD800 and newly released HD800S at the whopping price tag of $1799 (other than the color of course) 1, the HD800S smooths out the somewhat piercing sound in the treble area 2, Improvement over bass   Some example tracks: 虹の音 - 藍井エイル | Shirushi - LiSA : not sure if I can describe well, if you have heard both sounds, you would know the first song has a climax (high point) and there are two for the latter song, they sound very clear but not over piercing, HD800 reaches that highest treble at the exact right point before gets annoying My Treasure - 茅原実里 solo sounded as her voice bounce back in space So in the end, my favorite female vocal tracks sound very much alive and lovely satisfying   Hifiman HE400i People would think entry level planar magnetic headphone is already mid-gear in audiophile headphones This is somewhat not true, at least to this date, Fostex has some sub 300 level planar cans that are beloved by modding community, although you can't find anything planar lower than that, that's why I said "somewhat", the price level is subjective after all   HE400i A/B compare against AD900X Again, like the previous one, this is not very fair comparison because their price point is at different level The first thing I noticed is the big improvements over the low and mid range due to this sound signature, it is very good at genres like rock, jazz and male vocals Being a planar headphone, BASS of HE400i is in a huge lead does not come as surprise to me However, in contrast to the above difference, the highs of HE400i do not wow me It has very good clarity, but the female vocals sound flat, there is not particular bright point The sound stage is tight, especially after tried HD800 In terms of comfort, I think the AD900X wins here by being a much lighter headphone as I didn't feel any clamp force from the pads   Audio Technica AD900X is probably the best value phone at its price point Due to Japan's pop and Anime culture, most of the Japanese headphones I have heard have done a wonderful job on trebles Among all those Japanese headphone companies, Audio Technica still stands out to be the top in regard to special tuning for female vocals   Like the HE400i, the AD900X is particular good at certain genre of music (e.g Anime, female vocal, Orchestra) Due to the nature of open back design, AD900X lacks bass The highs sound fun, but low and mid are medieval core Because the nature of its sound signature, AD900X can be little fatiguing when listen over long period of time In terms of comfort, I think the self adjusting headband has done an amazing job The headphone feels plastic, but it is understandable for this price range I don't recall I have notice any big difference in how large the sound space is between the HE400i and AD900X In other words, AD900X has very wide sound stage as one of the selling points for its price   In the end, I have settled with my HD800, is it worth? you might ask All I can tell you is, this picture summarized my feeling when I put the cans on   I am planing to purchase desktop VR, can't wait to combo it with the HD800

Hoshi wo Ou Kodomo

星を追う子ども Title in English is translated "Children who chase lost voices" 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

Some inputs regarding Sword Art Online II last few episodes and the ending song

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

Usagi Doroppu - the movie

Title translated into English would be: "Bunny drop" Originally from manga, has an Anime General ★★★★☆ 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 attached figure can not be sold in US

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 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) Dinner: ramen + beer (because they have a special price when purchased with ramen) + nikuman (肉まん) here are the stuff I bought today

Kyoukai Senjou no Horizon

Recommended! General ★★★★★ Originally from a light novel 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 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 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" 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 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:

Madoka Magica the 3rd movie -rebellion-

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

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 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`*) Compare with the TV at the back (showing my website) Just some other figures I have 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 fan service?!

Due Defect unit of my previous setup, decided to pull the trigger on this upgrade (also small treat for myself for the new job)   Here are just some day one impressions When talk about tube amps, people generally say they are warm and smooth, it gives me an impression that it is best for midrange frequency You know me, I like Japanese music and Anime, it is full of female vocals they are very rich in the high frequency spectrum, to the point sometimes even piercing trebles For that reason I was hesitating for not picking a solid state amp, after hear numerous good things about Schiit products I decided to give it a try The Valhalla is not tubey at all, neutral, it preserves the brightness of my HD800 Of course early input means it hasn't completely burn-in yet, but as of now it suits me very well and I don't need any tube rolling   As for the Bifrost, there is not much to talk about other than delivers cristal clear details,  very good sense of sound stage note that this setup has high amount of output, and it is designed specifically for high impedance headphone like my HD800 (600 ohm)
And I forgot to mention the DAC and AMP are all made in USA while the headphone is hand made in Germany     Down for some photos

Hen Zemi

変ゼミ Originally from a manga also known as Abnormal Physiology Seminar 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

A new headphone

Beats Studio 2013 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 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 (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)

織田信奈の野望 - Oda Nobuna no Yabou

Originally from a light novel 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

New York Comic Con (huge amount of pictures)

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

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。。

境界線上のホライゾン Ⅱ Kyoukai senjou no horizon

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
