Makoto Shinkai's Next Movie "Tenki no Ko" Premieres in July 19th

Makoto Shinkai's next movie will be "Tenki no Ko [Weather Girl]" due to première in July 19th. The story tells of a young man named Hotaka (played by Kotarou Daigo) who has arrived in Tokyo from an island. He meets a girl named Youna (played by Nana Mori) who has the power to grant sunny days just by praying. Key visual looks good and I...


Studio Pablo ACCA: 13 Background Artbook

I quite enjoyed the ACCA-13 Anime because it was steadily paced like nothing's happening but you had to pay attention to what's going on. That and it has some great theme songs like "Shadow and Truth". It has some great retro looking backgrounds and world setting too. So here's the background artbook filled with art from Studio Pablo...


Sakura Wars: Sakura Shinguji 1/8 Scale Figure, CN Version Review

I watched the Sakura Wars TV series and quite enjoyed its steampunk setting during the Taisho Era. Great use of colours, good balance of comedy and action with some catchy theme songs too. Didn't know it started out as a Sega franchise back on the Sega Saturn (that was an interesting console!) So, let's have a look at how well this...


Hamachi: Yukino Yukinoshita Kimino 1/6 Scale Figure, CN Version Review

The heroine for this figure is from one of those Anime shows that have a long, long name... Yahari Ore no Seishun Rabukome wa Machigatte'ru AKA OreGairu or Hamachi in Japanese. English localisation is a bit more generic as My Teen Romantic Comedy SNAFU... Google that and you'll end up with all these live action teen comedy movies. You...


Anime Review 2018 Part III

A slice-of-life romcom that started off as a comic on the Japanese online artists community Pixiv before being serialised as a web comic. 26 year old Narumi Momose seems like your average optimistic cheery girl but she has a secret. She doesn't want anyone to find out she's an Otaku (geek) because guys always dump her when they find out...


Bikini Warriors: Valkyrie 1/7 Figure, CN Version Review

Never watched Bikini Warriors but you can guess what kind of show it is from the title already. Characters don't even have names other than the different classes you can have from your common fantasy RPG. Any Tony Taka fans will probably recognise his female character design right away. The faces always look very similar if you look at...


Anime Review 2018 Part II

Yusaku Godai is a "ronin", a student waiting for his next chance to pass university entrance exams. To make things worse, he lives in a shared rundown apartment called the "Ikkoku Apartment" with a group of inconsiderate and strange neighbours. Despite his best efforts to study and pass, they constantly harass and use his room for...


Triage X: Yuko Sagiri Darkness 1/7 Scale Figure, CN Version Review

Another figure from a series I haven't seen but I liked the femme fatale-like pose holding the katana with the dynamic flowing hair. Triage X is supposed to be about a vigilante organisation known as "Black Label" who bring justice to criminals who are out of reach from the law. Judging from the screenshots (pun intended) it's a fan...


Fate/Grand Order: Lancer Scathach 1/7 Scale Figure, CN Version Review

I always wanted to try Fate/Grand Order the mobile game since I've been a fan of the Fate/Night series but, the gameplay turned out to be quite mundane and the gatcha system didn't feel very exciting with simple colour swaps. Can't say much about the story either since I haven't played that far in. That said, I came across this Lancer...


Anime Review 2018 Part I

I've decided to make a list of Anime shows and movies I've watched for this year. Used to do episode summaries for my own reference just to remind me what happened but, I thought short reviews would be good too. They aren't all screened or aired this year. Some are actually quite old but of course, that doesn't mean they're bad. Maybe itll...
