Farewell, we barely knew each other

Maestro was kind enough to give me an account to, so I’ll be migrating all of my stuffs over to the new and shiny animeblogger version of End of Dreams.


Battle Moon Wars Act III delayed

December 8, 2006

Fans of the Type-Moon universe (Fate/Stay Night, Kara no Kyokai, Tsukihime) will be saddened to hear that the third installment of Battle Moon Wars has been delayed. The original planned release date was December 12th 2006, but for reasons unknown to me, the new release date is now set to February 2007. (more…)

[Rumor/Speculation] – Kara no Kyokai anime?!

December 8, 2006

I visit The Beast’s Lair boards quite often, and a thread made by Evospace caught my attention as I was skimming through the forum. The latest Newtype issue (a popular anime magazine in Japan) contained a picture of Ryogi Shiki, the main heroine of the popular Type-Moon novel, Kara no Kyokai. In addition to the picture, there’s apparently a pinup poster scheduled for the next Newtype magazine issue! Seeing as how Newtype is an anime magazine, this has obviously got me a bit excited to think that there may be a possibility of Kara no Kyokai being animated. (more…)

Initiate countdown!

Bleach movie? ZOMGWTF!

I just saw Bleach episode #106, and while the content itself was still the mindless Bounto filler, the intro and outro scenes were fully replaced by yummy previews to the first Bleach movie in the making, Memories of Nobody. Looking at the preview screens, it would appear that Rukia’s Zanpakukto, Sode no Shirayuki, will be animated for the very first time. Zaraki Kenpachi, Kuchiki Byakuya (seen with his Bankai active), Soi Fong, Toshiro Hitsugaya, Abarai Renji, and a very large number of other characters also made several appearances throughout the OP and ED of episode 106. Excited? I know I am – I’m one of those huge Bleach fans that still watch the series even though it’s descended into the pits of hell known only as “Fillers”. (more…)

Before the Storm

December 6, 2006

Blizzard Entertainment released their highly anticipated “Before the Storm” patch (also known as WoW 2.0) today for their gigantic MMORPG, World of Warcraft. The patch added a plethora of new content such as the new Honor system, the Arena battlegrounds, the new 41 point talent trees, and more. The bad part about this patch is pretty much the same as any other past major patch that Blizzard has released for World of Warcraft – massive server instability, extended server downtime, and everyone’s favorite: destroyed User Interfaces. But this patch is perhaps the most unforgiving on mods, as many have been flatout killed due to changes to game mechanics (ie: Decursive), and many more cannot even be force loaded anymore due to incompatibility with the new patch. Blizzard took the extra step this time however, and in addition to all of the above, most macros have become obsolete due to completely different coding methods being introduced (ie: /script UseInventory{13} used to activate your top trinket slot, but the command for that is now /use 13).

Exam week, more like hellhole week.

December 4, 2006

Archer sez “Exams are for girly men”.

I have two incomplete papers due within 3 days, and following directly after that deadline are 4 exams that eagerly await me. It’s times like this that I’m tempted to re-watch Saikano just so I can emo out after the Akemi scene in episode 9 and razorblade myself – but that’s a story for another time T_T. (more…)

Code Geass 04

December 3, 2006

This was an above average episode, with a decent amount of action, although the majority of the episode revolves around Karen and the Eleven’s history, along with development for Lelouch’s alias as Zero. Animation quality is the same as the past 3 episodes – superb. Sunrise continues to deliver the goods! (more…)

Jyukai – Hikari

December 3, 2006

For fans of Fate/Stay Night, you may recall that there were two special ending songs (Episodes 14 and 24 to be exact) sung by Jyukai and Sachi Tainaka that were never released. After skimming through the Hongfire HF-TypeMoon forums, someone was kind enough to share that they had found a full version of Hikari, the special ED for episode 14. I’ve taken the liberty of uploading it up onto Gendou’s site, so check it out here.

A full version of the second song “Kimi to no Asu” still hasn’t been found yet to my knowledge. As always, if you enjoy the song, show support to Jyukai by purchasing her CD’s over at CDJapan!

Code Geass 03

December 3, 2006

I think by now I can safely say that Code Geass will have a massive fanbase before the series is over and done with. Why, you ask? Typical Sunrise fanservice of course! Not that I’m complaining, oh no. As usual, my posts on these episodes containt spoilers, so don’t read any further if you havn’t seen the actual episode yet. So we’re back in (more…)

Tsukihime, how I love thee

December 3, 2006

I wouldn’t mind adopting all of them.

So, if you’re an advid Type-Moon fan like myself, you’ve probably heard that the super awesome people over at Mirror Moon and Revolve Translations have recently released their Tsukihime english patch. And let me tell you, it is glorious. For those of us that aren’t Japanese literate, this is pretty much a godsent gift. Prior to the patch, I relied mostly on the written summaries made by Evospace over at Moonlit World / Beast’s Lair, so while (more…)
