More food + recent purchases

Oden, similar to hotpot, materials boiled with soup there is a slice fired tofu underneath which tastes best, the pink thing (i believe fish meat) is good too rest are just average taste, most importantly the amount is not enough for lunch so I bought a Yakisoba pan afterwards with the intention of trying something new (also becuz it's pretty famous among anime) but i regret it... tastes awful.. later, went to a lion king show after visit to the bookstore Time square + a notebook of Yuruyuri from my friend did you notice something? yes the image on the notebook is the exact same place where we standing after all, here are the purchases my initial target was the dengeki G's magazine, but unfortunately it did not arrive on time so i picked up bunko(文庫) becuz of the gorgeous gifts (trading figure + collective booklet of short comic from all bunko works + trading cards) the rest are all manga, i'm not gonna list all the names, just look at the picture

あっちこっち AcchiKocchi

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

Madoka Magica film in USA theater!

tickets (plus two others we met later in the theater

About the film:
Basically the plot is same as the TV version
In the beginning of the movie, there was a special interview of the America version movie from the 6 main CVs. And they mentioned there will be some scenes to be shown that were not included in the anime series because of all kinds of restrictions, at first I was moved by this announcement cause i already know the story, but in the end it turned out to be very few, and none of them are stoical scenes.

Still, even for me who watched the anime series already and again on the BD release, the film was stunning and fabulous

Huge applauds between the cut scenes and the end. Even when the movie ended, and staff screen popped out, all the audiences still remained at seat until completely finished. I have been to many movies in cinema before, and this is my first time encounter something like this.

Gossip: the whole film was around 4 and half hours long, in Japanese voice and English subtitle
BTW I didn't look at the subtitle for once from the start till the end 0-0

Gossip x2: we originally thought there would be free goods that come with the ticket (a printed sign board and poster), and others goods for sale, but they didn't have that in new york! later we learned that was los angeles exclusive (damn!)

We went there right after class ended, so we had plenty of time, went riding the Ferris transportation to kill time



(gari gari kun 0w0 found in a Japanese supermarket)

Now, I'd like to quote from a friend that went with me that night, she wrote

(As I rethink now, the thing that moves me the most, is not the plot (bcuz it was TV remake), but the shock of being in the cinema, audiences' applauds in the end, and the friend that went together, eat together, despair together, and share the plot together... even thought very despairing (I'm not quite agree with this), but it was a very precious memory OwO)

Oh, like my other reviews, here are the ratings

General ★★★★★
Pretty sure it would be fantastic for those who watched it the first time that night
Story ★★★★★
Design ★★★★★
CG ★★★★★
Music ★★★★★
Couple new awesome songs, and new opening scene
Plot


Oh yeah

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

天神乱漫 Happy go Lucky!!

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

Amagami

Originally from a game General ★★★★☆ Super love soap anime (makes me itch sometimes.. Story ★★★★☆ every 4 episodes feature one main character the last two feature a hidden char and his sister (if you don't know what I'm talking about maybe because I only watched the blue ray version I can imagine they are not included in the TV version CG ★★★★★ Detailed, the light effect is very nicely done Design ★★★★★ Excellent cloth, and character designs for example, Rihoko who likes to eat and always wants to lose weight if you compare her deign to the others, you see she is little fatter but still as cute as (or more than) others Music ★★★★☆ Both OPs sung by azusa are very good I personally favor the second one "君のままで" over the 1st one The EDs are sung by the characters (one for each) and since they are CVs not music artists, the songs ain't good (for both singing part and making part) Can't recall any BGM in the Anime Plot

Sora no OtoshiMono - The Angeloid of Clockwork

Originally from a manga General ★★★★★ Story ★★★★☆ The first half of the movie is basically review of what happened in the Anime series from the new character Hiyori(風音)'s view to show how she fell in love with Tomoki (智樹) A lot of ERO funny scenes like usual And the ending is very heart touching, when Hiyori turned into an angeloid(angel robot) after a tragedy right before she was about to hear back from Tomoki from her love confession earlier In the end she sacrificed herself to protect Tomoki The scene I like the most is in the last few minutes of the film, Tomoki went back to the place where he and Hiyori first met. A ray of right shined behind him along with leathers, at last came the sound of bell Hiyori always wears, leaving the audiences a huge imagination space BTW, I also like the name of Hiyori (sound of wind) which matches the sound of bells she always has on her hair CG ★★★★★ The fighting scene is very well done as well as the rest, graphic very detailed Design ★★★★★ The design of the clockwork angeloid is awesome Characters also dress up very nicely Music ★★★★☆ Ending songs so-so

Inu x Boku SS (secret service)

Originally from a manga General ★★★★☆ Typical Missy and agent (housekeeper+bodyguard), more suitable for female audiences Story ★★★☆☆ Day to day scenes, very few fighting (even though the setting of Maison de Ayakashi and half ayakashi half human gives you a good battle sense) You may also learn some basic info about Japanese ghosts Btw, the main character said in the beginning that she always says something against her will, in other words, tsundere Although it's popular among some people, I really hate this type of personality (don't hit me CG ★★★★☆ Graphic is good and detailed Design ★★★★☆ Has some sets of outfit, the drawing style is cute as well Music ★★★★☆ I personally don't like the OP and EDs but the BGM especially the one plays when she changes form is very good Plot

The Chinese moon festival!? (h-master drama inside?!)

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

咲 Saki Achiga-hen

Originally from a Manga Achiga-hen is a side story of Saki main story 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

Bakuman

Originally from a manga バクマン。 the title literally means gambler General ★★★★★ Even though I've already read the manga, the Anime still keeps me excited That's how good it is Just like the manga, every episode ends at exciting point Story ★★★★★ Both main characters had their heroines in the start The effort they put into the their work alone the way attracted many other female characters and they never changed their heart The psychological descriptions of characters are nice (the story writer really put a lot of effort into this) As for the main Story those who never watch/read this Anime might think there isn't much to tell in drawing manga story That's not true, every difficulty they have overcome, another one soon pops up I'm not gonna discuss about the difficulties they have overcame, You will know what I mean once you watch/read it CG ★★★★☆ One small negative thing I have to say is, the Anime production is too focused on speed Environment and Character expression are not detail enough(exp: light/dark effect) The manga does much better performance on this part Altho it's two different platform, hard to compare Other than that, the anime quality is good Design ★★★★★ You might be familiar with this drawing style yes, the art is done by the same artist of Death note, Hikaru no go etc and like all his works, story is done by someone else As for bakuman, it is the same writer who wrote death note Music ★★★★☆ No noticeable BGM, but I really like the OP and 1st ED Especially the OP lyric uses strive, dream as theme, really nice See you again on season 3 Plot

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
