Hatsune Miku Nendoroid

Right, I gave in. After watching the Nendoroid dance and Vocaloid 2 videos, I finally decided to purchase the Hatsune Miku figure. This is the 33rd figure in the Nendoroid series and it's the first figure that I've imported (not counting the free Gashapon ones YesAsia gives away) so lets see what's here. It's also the first time I...


Persona 4 Review

It's only been a year since Persona 3 FES was released in Japan. Two years for the original Persona 3 game. Now Atlus is back with Persona 4 which follows very much the same gameplay from P3. You play as a high school student who must balance your daily life routine with dungeon exploring as the days pass and the story unfolds. So is P4 the...


What Wii Fit Doesn't Tell You

It's been a while since I purchased Wii Fit and while I know most have given it up, I've now spent a total of 41 hours on it before the included "Panasonic Industrial Alkaline" batteries ran out. This was spread out over a period of 2 months while keeping up my own morning jog. Pretty much given up on all the other stuff such as yoga in Wii Fit...


Persona 4 OST First Press Edition

Had the Persona 4 OST pre-ordered with Play-Asia long before I got the game because I already liked what I heard from all the little teasers during the past few months. Managed to get a first press edition which I wasn't really expecting. It's a pity the two disc 52 track OST doesn't contain a full version of "Pursuing My True Self". Im...


Persona 4 with Pre-Order Postcards

Decided to pick up the Japanese version of Persona 4 after all, even though I only have access to a PAL PS2. Just received it a few days ago. To my relief, it works fine on Swap Magic and doesn't swirl as badly as the other games. I had the good fortune of having a contact over in Japan who was willing to pre-order the game for me so, out of all the...


Super Smash Bros Brawl

Never played any of the previous titles in the series but decided to pick up "Super Smash Bros Brawl" for the Wii because there's been another lack of good titles for the console. I had the game pre-ordered and managed to get this "Limited Edition" sleeve for the game together with a postcard of Zero Suit Samus. Pretty cool considering...


Picking a Camera, The Canon PowerShot A720 IS

Decided to pick up a new digital camera because I didn't like how my old 2MP Olympus D-380 was lacking storage space (only up to 128MB Smart Media cards) and didn't have optical zoom. It was sufficient when I used to only take the odd photo 6 years ago, though. I done quite a bit of research before making the decision to buy this Canon...


5 Centimetres per Second LE DVD has Alternative Covers?

Fellow Anime fan Diego spotted something interesting about the Japanese 5 Centimetres per Second LE DVD. It appears the bonus discs case has alternative covers! I've noticed the illustrations before whenever I took out the discs to watch but, never did thought of them being used this way. You can see the "DVD Video" logo along the...


Dragon Quest Swords, Wiimote Shaking Fun?

Starting the game up, a festival is running and a mandatory tutorial is given about how to use the Wiimote. Afterwards, it's time to take the "Walk of the Worthy" and go on the very first sword slashing adventure. Each location is presented on a world map and are completely replayable. Graphically, they look fairly good but are...


Evangelion 1.01 Rebuild Movie Limited Edition DVD Review

If you browse a lot of Anime blogs then you will probably have seen many photos of the unpacking of the Evangelion 1.01 Limited Edition DVD but, here's my set and my thoughts on the movie. I know the raws and subbed versions of this movie has been up for some time but I decided to hold out so that I watched my own DVDs when my copy arrived from...
