Fadedsun - Five Stars

Had a very reasonable price, prompt replies (mostly), package arrived as described and undamaged.

Didn't need them anymore. Plus I found out that models are fun to build, but once I've done that they just collected dust. Made it all feel pointless. If I could do something with them, I might've kept them, but they were too fragile to play with.

Yeah, I enjoyed its light-hearted nature as well, which is actually pretty odd for me. Though I do go through me phases. I guess I'm in a light-hearted phase right now since I've greatly enjoyed two humorous anime recently and I've also been reading some comic strips lately. Speaking of comics, I'm tempted to try the A!MG manga, though 49 volumes is a lot to catch up with.

I recently finished off Ah! My Goddess (OVA). It's a story about a man who ends up getting a Goddess as a girlfriend and their not-so-normal life together. It was pretty good, a good mix of humor with a somewhat compelling plot. I'm normally not a fan of slice of life or humor, but this one was actually quite enjoyable. I just felt like it did things just right, though it's not without its flaws. The first episode rushed too much, and I didn't care for the awkwardness of episode 2. With that said, I did greatly enjoy the third episode and the drama of the last two episodes.

I should also take note of the dub, since I'd say it's pretty good for its time. My copy is dated 2001, and I'm not sure if it was dubbed before that. For an old dub, the voices really fit the characters, and the actors really seemed to do a good job delivering their lines. Really, I'm impressed.

All in all, I really liked it a lot, and it convinced me to go try out the TV series, which I hear is even better. I might also give the Movie a try, assuming I can get my hands on it.

AnimeNation forums.

Did not know you were a member there. What's your name there?

As much as I want those anime, I ain't got the games you want.:(

And you are a Gundam fan! Too bad I tossed all my models years ago...

Parents dragged my in to see Rango. It was alright, I mean, it had it's moments. Plus I haven't seen a western in a long time. A fun watch, but not necessarily a recommended one.

I heard something about their farmland being underwater now.

Damn, I was really looking forward to playing PSP RPGs on my Phone.:( Looks like I'll have to get the NGP after all.

How much does the PSP version differ from the SNES version?  If you guys really want to play the game, the SNES version is always available in Japanese (unless you can find *something*).

If we're still talking about the same game, Blood of Bahamut is a DS game, which has nothing to do with Bahamut Lagoon for the SNES. So in other words, it differs a lot, yeah.

...or maybe they just got lucky. Either way, we don't get what we want sometimes and we have to deal with it.

Truest words, for better or for worse.

I already have it for the PC but I'll play the demo just to see how the controls work.

Dice, you're making the wait even harder than it already is.=P

Recently finished:

Idol Project - Well, this one really surprised me here. It's about A Girl named Mimu who wants to be an idol just like the Yuri, an idol loved by people everywhere, and who just so happens to be ruler of the world. The plot gets pretty crazy from there, so I'll try not to spoil much. I had never really heard of it, nor did I really know what it was about, but I assumed it was a cutsy comedy. And it was, but I enjoyed it much more than I expected. Specifically I really liked the characters and art, and I loved the humor, and I normally don't go for comedy. I also liked the story - it was decent, and did a good enough job of holding my attention and making me wonder what would happen next.

The world(s) in particular were interesting, and the sci-fi/whimsical fantasy setting really helped it hold my attention. They were very imaginitive and surreal, though perhaps I should come to expect that from an anime. Still, it surprises me every time.

Oh, and I can't forget the music: There was a lot of vocal songs and I thought most of them were pretty good. I wish I could get ahold of the soundtrack, but I can't seem to find it anywhere. Probably too old.

The Voice acting was decent, but I probably should watch it again in Japanese some time, since as much as I liked the english cast (mostly because I recognized them from Martian Successor Nadesico and other anime I liked), I think the Japanese cast would've been better. Just a hunch.

You know, I actually had a pretty solid complaint about this show, but I forgot what it was.:P EDIT: I just remembered what the one big negative I had with it was: Fanservice. It has a LOT of it. Not the worst I've seen, and some of it was pretty entertaining, but it still got on my nerves sometimes. Overall I'd say it was pretty good. Lots to love, loads to laugh at. It was very surreal and fun to watch, nice to listen to, and I enjoyed pretty much every minute of it. I did have to skip some stupid parts, but that happens all the time when I watch comedies. Honestly, people hate watching them with me.

Been playing Command & Conquer 4 with my friend. We blew through the Nod campaign over the Weekend, the last mission was really tough, involving a limitless supply of enemies comming at us while we try to capture three nodes while not losing the three nodes we start out with. Then a giant plane comes out of nowhere and starts bombing things and when it lands, it drops in reinforcements. We had to divert all our attention to destroying the plane that we couldn't even deal with the reinforcements that were taking over the nodes. Finally it flew over a group of my units when it had 1% health and we were quickly losing control of the nodes. We took it down when we only had 1% control left - we won with mere milliseconds to spare!

Now we're playing the GDI campaign. Story's even worse than Nod's, though the missions are more fun. My friend has Mammoth Tanks unlocked, so he's just bulldozing everything. The first mission was easy as pie because of them. The second mission was a little tougher, though. This game loves to throw in giant planes to shake things up.

I also have to wait a little bit of extra time because I'm getting all this stuff through the library. Though they do order the new volumes when they get released, they're not snatching them up on the day they get released. Right now they have up to volume 12.

It's okay, because they stock a bunch of other quality stuff: Akira, Hetalia, Black Jack, Death Note, Monster, Pluto, etc.

Well at least your library stocks manga. I'm very surprised to hear you have such a great selection. We ain't got much over here anymore.
