It’s been moons since any major announcement for the greatest event of the year, Anime Festival Asia 2014, which will be held on the island nation of the Lion City.
With the passing of Anime Festival Asia Indonesia 2014 last week, looks like the officials finally decided to release some info for the upcoming end-of-year event.
During Anime Japan 2014 earlier today, Anime Festival Asia panel has revealed a couple of set of dates: 15, 16, 17 August for AFAID14 in Jakarta Convention Centre and 5, 6, 7 December for AFA14 in Singapore Suntec Convention Centre…
A random post while preparing myself for the upcoming Comic Fiesta 2013 this weekend, which is just T-minus 5 days left! w
Anyway, if you’ve followed the Bakemonogatari Second Season since last season, you’ll know about the bubbly middle-schooler being Shaft’d into a pale, radiant goddess/deity.
The recent arc from Koimonogatari even fully moe-fied her appearance with a dash of “Nadeko dayo~”! XDc
Why the mention of Sengoku Nadeko you ask?
Well, ever since she’d become Nadeko Snake-sama, I’ve silently cried out for a Nendo and/or Figma version of her. Unfortunately GSC have yet to hint, let alone announce the possibility of her figure creation. :/
Day 1 saw little of them cosplayers, but on Day 2 and 3 a throng of them came and occupied them halls setting up small bubbles of photog space all over the place. w
Announced just yesterday, the 3rd season of comedic parody Carnival Phantasm will include a 12-minute animated short of an OVA…
…of the original draft of Fate/Stay Night!
The holy Trinity of Moe Futon welcomes a new recruit to their fluffy ranks…
In the form of a certain huggable Inu hime~!
Hailed from the recent pseudo-warfare anime Dog Days
(Of which many complained of being lack of substance, but then again everyone’s a critique… ^_~), the main couple of the series, Cinque Izumi and Millhiore Firianno Biscotti, will see themselves being made into the wonderfully chibi x kawaii nuigurumi by Gift! :Dc
Not to mention both of them being magnificently hug-able too! XDc
After a certain SHAFTed incident upon our lovely Archer Class Musketeeress, her last experience has become the iconic representative of the Puella Magi Madoka Magica experience… 0_0
Really, really dig such smashing idea for a pen/thumb/flash drive… ^^; Now where can I get one? XDc
Updated: Someone really went a(be)head and did it! XDc
Puella Magi Madoka Magica, also known as Mahou Shoujo Madoka Majika, is perhaps the most talked mahou shoujo anime series of this season.
Madoka Magica is a not-your-so-typical mahou shoujo anime not based upon any other material (Light novel, manga), an original production made by Shaft, the studio behind many successful series in the past (Bakemonogatari, Sayonara Zetsubou Sensei, Negima!, Hidamari Sketch)…
Before I go ahead I’ll have to warn you that everything after this line will contain spoilers of what happened in the episodes of the anime thus far…
Please head thataway if you wish to digest the sweet and sour story in your own time frame or if you’re just downright hate spoilers… ^_~
The moe comedy of this season, Shinryaku! Ika Musume has done itself a service with the latest episode introducing a palm-top sized Mini Ika Musume has caught comrades world-wide off guard, with many had their heart stolen by her pet-like chibi kewt-ness… XDc
Presented in short three-parter for each episodes, the Mini Ika Musume appeared during the last arc of the latest episode (Episode 05)…
The official website of the upcoming OVA of the school girl eroge comedy manga — Koe de Oshigoto! — updates with a rather unusual preview or sorts…
A joint production between Marvel giant and Mad House, IronMan the anime started its run just several days ago…
As evident from a short footage showing IronMan Mk I’s design in its OP scenes, this Japanese animated series based its designs from the ever successful IronMan the 1st movie…
Offical 00 site updated with end season enemy units…
A light and dark mobile suit colored purple with black, the Gaga are meant to be used as suicide weapons. Because of this, the Gaga possesses very little weapons and are produced in massive numbers for an army of Bring Stabity and Divine Nova clones to pilot. The machine itself was built and designed by Billy Katagiri to have high speed mobility and easy control for the pilot. The Gaga is also equipped with a Trans-Am system, but possesses the same time limit as the Susanoo.
* Straying from conventional Gundam series designs, this ugly little duckling has arms for legs…
* Anew’s ride that was worth only an episode… >,<
* The colour scheme screams for a GunPla adaptation… Hopefully of the 1/100 scale… >,<
* The design resembles that of an upper torso of a Mobile Suit, which I thought would combine with another unit to form a Mobile suit mode… But alas it was not… >,<
* Heavy upper body, short legs… XD I was hoping for a docking sequence with Empruss into a Mobile suit mode that’s easier to the eyes but… oh well…
* Double agent detected! Anyways, she looks and feel identical to Feldt in many ways…
GNR-010 0 Raiser
The 0-Raiser is a mobile weapons platform to support specifically the GN-0000 00 Gundam. It can combine with 00 Gundam to form the 00 Raiser. On a side note, the 0 Raiser looks very similar to the GN-Sefer. The 0 Raiser helps stabilize the 00’s Twin Drive system and has the ability to amplify 00 Gundam’s Trans Am System. On its own, the 0 Raiser is equipped with GN-Micro Missiles, GN-Beam Machineguns, and GN-Vulcans. The pilot of the 0 Raiser has been confirmed to be Saji Crossroad.
* Sleek, pointy and stylish, this Mobile Armour support platform for 00 resembles the likes of an X-Wing fused with the cloak-shaped TIE Interceptor of Star Wars fame…
An Innovator with lilac-coloured hair who is shown in the opening sequence in a tube next to Tieria and Regene. It is possible that he shares his DNA with Anew Returner, one of Celestial Being’s mechanics. Revive joins the A-LAWS as the pilot of the GNZ-003 Gadessa, with the rank of Captain. Although he is given permission to operate as a one man army like Mr. Bushido, he tells Kathy Mannequin that he promises to follow her orders. After interfacing with Veda after a mission, Revive is surprised to see that Bring has also joined the A-LAWS, and is further shocked when he hears that the Memento Mori is being activated, commenting on Ribbons’ decision to finally put it to use.
Voiced by: Miyuki Kawasho
A member of the Innovators, not much is known about Healing other than the fact that she is identical to Ribbons Almark (perhaps sharing the same DNA as in Regene and Tieria’s case) and appears to be somewhat fond of him. She first appears at the A-LAWS party in which she shoots at Tieria, who had pulled his own gun out on Ribbons. After Tieria’s escape, she tells Ribbons that she wants a debut as a mobile suit pilot, claiming that she is useful only for combat purposes.
* What’s up with the names of these Inovators anyways!? This one… umm… expert on medical and rescue?
Voiced by: Ryotaro Okiayu
An Innovator of very few words, Bring is considerably more stoic than his fellow Innovator comrades. Like Revive, Bring also joins the A-LAWS. He confronts Setsuna as a warning to Celestial Being, quickly overpowering the 00 Gundam in his own GNZ-005 Garazzo unit. He later meets Revive at an A-LAWS base, and tells him that the Memento Mori is being activated.
* Yeah right… Bringing stability to the world…
This green mobile suit was first mentioned by Innovator Revive Revival to have already been rolled out. It is armed with a large, triple-barreled cannon mounted on its back (GN mega launcher). Innovator Revive Revival is the pilot of this suit. This unit was offered to the A-LAWS. According to Arba Rindt, the Gadessa’s ability greatly surpasses the Ahead and according to Ribbons the unit also surpasses the 00, although this statement may merely be based on Ribbon’s own assumptions as opposed to reality.
The Celestial Four in their cool new pilot suits, along with their respective Gundam units… I like those new uniform better than the ones in 00-S1…
Tieria Erde and Seravee
“Celestial Being’s new mothership. Though the previous Ptolemaios was basically unarmed, the Ptolemaios 2 seems to be equipped with weapons everywhere.”
* The new transport ship now sports many enhancements when compared to her older sibling, especially on the defence systems… The bridge side of the ship looks similar to the designs of Argama, the Gundam transport from Mobile Suit Z Gundam Series… Looks kinda like an oversized GN Arms as well…
More MS belonging to the Earth Sphere Federation…
“Arrows’ latest main model mobile suit. It’s form and armament are derived from the GN-X, a characteristic that can be seen in the drive on its back.”
* Oh my this is one ugly hulk of a Mobile Suit! Looks like a cross between Tieren with Jinx…
“A unit deployed as the main MS of the Earth Federation army that includes improvements to the model brought about 4 years prior by the guardians.”
Armament: GN Lance (a lance with a built-in rifle used for shooting and assault)
* Closely resembles the mecha design from Code Geass series, like a medieval age knight soldier, especially since its main weapon is a lance… Now, where’s the horse? It made its appearance during the epilogue of 00-S1… XD Anyways, I wonder where is Jinx II, a design failure during reverse engineering of the 1st Jinx?
Base weight: 54.0 t
Pilot: Tieria Erde
Armament: GN cannon, GN beam saber, GN beam rifle, GN sword
* The femme fatale hidden underneath Virtue, with long hair-like cords hanging about her head…
Overall width: 37.9 m
Overall height: 42.6 m
*It’s Byg Zam without legs! Fear my huge cannon and crabby claws! XD
Base weight: 69.2 t
Pilot: Alejandro Corner
*Totally lost to the gallant Hyaku Shiki (Mobile Suit Z Gundam) in terms of design and overall physiques… Shame on its ugly wings… >,< What, you’re trying to become Wing Zero Custom (New Mobile Report W Gundam: Endless Waltz) with that twin rifles of yours?
