Being a huge Nintendo fan, I myself couldn't help but feel excited about the new Nintendo 3DS. Officially announced at E3 2010, 3DS undoubtedly will put pressure on Sony with their PSP. First, look at the specs.
The Nintendo 3DS is based on a custom Pica200 graphics processor from a Japanese start-up Digital Media Professionals (DMP). It has two screens; the top screen is a 3.53-inch 5:3 3D screen with a resolution of 800x240 pixels (400x240 pixels per eye, WQVGA) that is able to produce a stereoscopic three-dimensional effect without 3D glasses, while the bottom screen is a 3.02-inch 4:3 non-3D touch panel with a resolution of 320x240 pixels (QVGA). The 3DS weighs approximately 8 oz. and, when closed, is 5.3 inches wide, 2.9 inches long, and 0.8 inches tall.

The 3DS has two cameras on the outside of the device, capable of taking 3D photos and capturing 3D video, as well as a camera positioned above the top screen that faces the player; both cameras have a resolution of 640x480 pixels (0.3 Megapixel). The system also has 3D movie playback capability; Nintendo has made deals with Warner Bros, Disney, and DreamWorks to deliver 3D movies. Although no titles have been announced yet, the trailer for Disney’s upcoming film Tangled was shown on the 3DS during the Expo. (Wikipedia)

 Also look at the wonderful upcoming game titles. Metal Gear Solid? Kingdom Hearts 3D? Dead or Alive 3D? COUNT ME IN. But the most exciting title is the remake of one of the best game all of the time, Ocarina of Time. In 3D. Dammit Nintendo. Dammit. I can't wait to see this baby.
-SPOILER ALERT-
A lesson without pain is meaningless. For you cannot gain something without sacrificing something else in return. But once you have overcome it and made it your own... You will gain an irreplaceable fullmetal heart.
Whaaaaat? It's over already?

So Edward finally kicks some serious ass and beats the crap out of Father. Then the pathetic loser tries to suck Greed the philosopher stone from Ling's body. Greed, in the form of philospher stone, transformed Father's body into charcoal but then he is killed by Father. Ed strikes the final blown to Father and the Homunculus returned to it original form. That's what I called an ending.

But not yet. Alphonse hasn't returned from the Gate. Ed refused to use the stone to get Alphonse back. He then draws a human transmutation circle and brings himself to the Truth. He exchanged his alchemist ability with Alphonse body and get him back to the world. And finally all of them gain a true ending. Ling became the emperor. Mustang regain his sight and will revise the policies in Ishval. Hohenheim died with smile on his face. Scar will revive the Ishvalan religion. And top of that Ed and Winry married and have kids.

What an ending. I applaud Arakawa-sensei's incredible ways to tied all the lost thread. This a great ending for a great manga about an epic journey. I kinda little sad that Fullmetal Alchemist finally ends after all these years. Sayonara Edward and friends. I surely will miss you all.

Well it's official now, T.K is my favorite character this season. It's not only me but also you, right? T.K is just what everyone needs in an anime. He is loved by everyone. He is one of the reasons why I watched Angel Beats. (And he's also voiced by a gaijin!!! For God's sake!!!)


Speaking of Angel Beats, I just recently finished watching episode 10. Dammit I was getting a bit teary-eyed there. But I also have a good laugh there. Here are some of my favorite scenes in this episode (regarding T.K)

-Opinion-
Finally, K-ON!! songs that actually not bad. Pure Pure Heart, if I recall correctly, is the insert song played in Episode 7. It's not exaggerating if I say that this song is the same level as Fuwa Fuwa Time. The catchiness is exactly the same. Pure Pure Heart is a catchy song and it had good singing and instrumentals. So just like Fuwa Fuwa Time, Pure Pure Heart is an addicting and enjoyable track.

Sakuragaoka Joshikou Tou Kakkou Kouka is the rock version of the song in the first episode. And just like Tsubasa wo Kudasai, every member of HTT gets her turn to sing. Not bad, not bad at all. Although I think it Tsubasa wo Kudasai is slightly better than this song but overall it's still a decent track.The other tracks from this single are just instrumental version of the two songs above.

Finally, you should give Pure Pure Heart a try and you would be disappointed.


*facepalm*
My God. What the hell. WHAT THE HEEEELLLLLL!!
I never thought that possibility exists in the first place. I mean, it's supercell we're talking about. Their work is all masterpiece. To think that this "masterpiece" will appear in a certain-neverending-shonen-shitty-animu makes me despair.


Okay, you think that this is some kind of bad April Fool joke and you want me to prove it huh?
First, April is ages ago. Second there is announcement at ryo's Twitter page. And third, there is news at zotaku. Now you believe me?

Another upcoming supercell single titled “Kocchi Muite Baby / Yellow” will be out 14 July. This single is colaboration between supercell and kz and will be used as theme song of next Hatsune Miku -PROJECT Diva- 2nd game. So, no Nagi this time (sigh).
Long time no see guys. First I want to apologize for the lack of blog entry I made this month. University entrance tests and stuffs keep me busy these days. But obviously I'm not planning to stop blogging. I will still update my blog at least 2-3 times a month.

Okay enough for chitchat. It's been a while since my last Monthly Music Review. So because of that, this time I will make it a loooooooooooooooooong post to cover the music single I miss. So what are we waiting for? Let's rock!


My Soul, Your Beats! & Brave Song
Lia & Aoi Tada
They say save the best for the last. But I'l gotta say number one is for the winner. Yeah right, Angel Beats OP+ED is a win in my book. Nothing can top both the great songs by Lia and Aoi Tada. The OP "My Soul, Your Beats!" is like a Lia trademark song. The piano intro is awesome. Even this song can be compared with "Toki wo Kizamu Uta" in term of piano tune.
The ED is slightly slower tempo than the OP but that's natural. Aoi Tada's Brave Song is really really a relaxing song so I usually listening to it before go to sleep. Basically this single is a must listen. I give my two thumbs for this single.

Hey, it's GalDeMo! What more can I say? They already surpassed Houkago Tea Time as my favorite anime band besides DMC and ENOZ.

Thousand Enemies
Girls Dead Monster
Second single of GalDeMo and this time they used a new vocalist. LiSA is indeed better than the first vocalist (I forgot her name) and I'm glad they will use LiSA for the rest of GalDeMo singles.

GO! GO! MANIAC
Houkago Tea Time
Hi there, Chipmunks Tea Time! C'mon, what's with that squeaky voice and fast paced song? This is not HTT I used to like! If there ever be a band clash-up between HTT and GDM, I'll place my bet for GDM. HTT can suck my dick. Oh I forgot to say, the second track is better than the first. I'm starting to think that Genius...!_ should be the OP instead.

Listen!!
Houkago Tea Time
Actually I rank this a much lower than Don't Say Lazy but at least it's higher than GO! GO! MANIAC. I'm lying if I say I don't enjoy the song, but it's just nothing special in the song. I wanna know what the composer of K-ON!! is smoking while he works. He's really lost his touch in making a song. Fortunately, a winking Mio is fine too.
