The big box

April 15, 2014

Well, a big box from AmiAmi and a smaller box from eBay.

So here we see the long-awaited Strength Figma from Black Rock Shooter TV, which has been delayed multiple times and I pre-ordered in July last year. I also picked up the 7th volume of the Neptunia anime which came with a full-sized Neptune Nendoroid, as well as the new Ro-Kyu-Bu game. The G4U 9 came in from eBay and…

It was the last one! Yay. I now own 17 iM@S games.

That’s every region-free iM@S game. I also get to do this:

Putting that art box to use, finally.

So here’s the Neptune set. Art box (great quality), magazine insert, and the “purple ray” box. (Neptune logo instead of a BD logo.)

This is the back of the art box. The same text scrolls through the blu-ray menu background. I’m surprised at how perfect the English and romanization is. I’m wondering if they partnered up with someone for it and whether or not it’s indicative of a planned English release.

Here’s the stuff included in G4U 9.

That’s it for now. Initial impressions coming… soon. Maybe tomorrow, maybe not. I finished my last premiere on Saturday, but I haven’t had time to follow up yet.

Winter 2012 (+Guilty Crown, Bakuman 2, & Mirai Nikki) Final Impressions

April 17, 2012

Less carryovers than I seem to remember having. I said five last time but I only have three. Maybe I was counting Fate/Zero and Sket Dance, too? Anyway, I had to wait on Mirai Nikki to end, which was taking its sweet time. Let’s do this.

Winter 2012 Chart v3.0 and the shows I’ll watch

December 10, 2011

Chart by cowboybibimbop.

Let’s get to it.

Tantei Opera Milky Holmes 2 – I passed up the first season initially, but it was pretty enjoyable when I gave it a shot. Can’t wait for some Mori this season.

Recorder to Randoseru – Legal loli, 4koma, etc. Too many things for me to ignore.

Another – I hope this one is good, because I really want it to be.

Black Rock Shooter – Doko e itta no?

Amagami SS+ plus – Not sure how I feel about this really getting a second season, but if it’s half as good as the first then I’m still in for a great ride.

Kill Me Baby – 4koma comedy. I obviously don’t get enough of this in my animu diet.

Mouretsu Pirates – Based on a novel series called, literally, “Mini-Skirt Pirates.” Curiosity got the better of me on this one. I just have to see how it is.

Papa no Iu Koto wo Kikinasai! – I don’t really have a reason for this one. Just ’cause. Seriously. I can’t think of any reason why I’d watch this show, but I want to anyway.

Nisemonogatari – Hell yeah, more Bakemonogatari goodness.

Specials, OVAs, and movies:
– Sayonara Zetsubou Sensei – Can’twaitcan’twaitcan’twait
– Usagi Drop – Still watching these.
– Ikoku Meiro no Croisée: Yune & Alice – I honestly forgot about these. Need to get on ’em.
– Toradora – My levels of hype are immesurable. Bold just ’cause.
– Hidan no Aria – Why not? I rather liked the show.
– Carnival Phantasm 3rd Season – This has been phenomenal. Everyone who likes Type-Moon needs to see it.
– Higurashi Kira – Episode 3 subs where?
– Denpa Onna to Seishun Otoko – Only slightly less hype than the Toradora OVA.
– Ura Mirai Nikki – Maybe. Depends on how much I care to follow up on it. I said I was gonna watch the Infinite Stratos OVA and ended up not giving two craps.
– Steins;Gate – About as much hype as Denpa Onna.
– K-ON! movie – No cam rips for me. Only watching when a good home release rip is out.
– .hack//The Movie – Again, not watching until a good home release rip is out.

I feel like I get lazier with these every time. Oh well.

May follow up with a post about what I scored in Right Stuf’s holiday sale after it’s over. We’ll see.

Summer 2010 (+Night Raid, Heroman, Maid-sama, Rainbow, K-ON!!, & Bonus Round) Final Impressions

October 2, 2010

A bit of a delay on this one because CoalGuy’s K-ON!! subs started drifting further and further from the air date the longer the season went on, but I’m finally finished with the Spring season and all of the Summer series that have ended. I’m also done with most of Winter (Katanagatari is still ongoing due to its airing schedule) now that Night Raid has been finished as well.
