Exia.

Posted by kamekazen on December 31, 2007

D:  I’ve been doing a lot of impulse buying lately; Jump Square magazine, art stuff, gashapon, pens… Gah.. maybe it’s cause I didn’t really get anything real (besides a bit of money) for Christmas. But yeah I’ve been going around trying to find the Exia model from Gundam 00. I found it at Anime King on a random visit. I saw it on the shelf and had to buy it. Even though I was just informed through email that my smaller (1/144) model of Exia had just arrived at my CPU Box (gawd, after a freaking 6 weeks worth of waiting for dumb SAL shipping). I’m glad I got the bigger model though. Looks like they tried some new stuff with Exia. Some rubber pieces were used. Clear plastics pieces were added to protect some of the stickers from peeling off. The balance of the Gundam seemed a bit better than my other Gundams. And I didn’t notice it before but Exia has 3 swords (including his ridiculously huge sword/laser gun/shield thing) and then 4 beam swords. Muwahaha. Oh and apparently the Dengeki magazine for February comes with pieces to mod the 1/144 model of Exia. The modded Exia looks pretty nice, it removes most of the distracting blue armor and goes for a cooler white look. I think I’ll stop by Kinokuniya and get the magazine for the parts soon. The magazine is $16 though… Ouch.

I’ll post pics of my finished Exia soon. I may or not paint him. Probably not. I’m real lazy.

Monkey Majik – Sora wa Maru de

Posted by kamekazen on December 18, 2007

Pretty sweet song.

Be back with romanized lyrics soon.

Monkey Majik – Sora wa Maru de

空はまるで君のように青く澄んでどこまでも
やがて僕ら描き出した明日へと走り出す

旅立つけどlooking in the rear view mirror
I got you here 少しだけclearer
I know with you 全てが広がっていく
All we need is just a little more time流れてるから
Everyday look at yourself and smile
Hoping things will go your way.

確かなことなど何も 誰にもわからないから
どんなことが起こるだろう 手を繋いでI’ll never let you get away

空はまるで君のように青く澄んでどこまでも
やがて僕ら描き出した明日へと走り出す

1…1…Hey I wish we hadn’t departed,
But now you life has started,
We met at the shop, and still have something in common.
そしていつかわかる?
I’m hoping everything is fun,
季節が巡るよ
互いに過ごした日々があるから
I’m happy ya had the time to stay.
Letting it back, to chat, chilin’ and bringin’ it back.

確かなことなど何も 誰にもわからないから
どんなことが起こるだろう 手を繋いで

空はまるで君のように青く澄んでどこまでも
やがて僕ら描き出した明日へと走り出す

Everyday I wake up thinking of you
You make it all clear to me
What I want you to do
Leave it up to you
I always knew you’d make it somewhere
You’re pushin’ it for the top
You never can stop
Enjoy the ride
And you know I’ll always be there for you
So make every moment true

‘Cause we all grow up and and our time is running out
(But) we can teach our youth
That’s what life’s all about
Maybe you’ll fall in love
I maybe be your guide ’till then
気持ち抑えきれずに…yeah

それはまるで涙のように溢れ出すよいつまでも
出会った日々の喜びも いつの日か いつの日か

m-flo – Love Me After 12am (feat. Alex of Clazziquai)

Posted by kamekazen on December 16, 2007

Oh man, I just heard this song on someone’s blog. It is so awesome. It has Alex’s sexy voice, funky beats, m flo rapping, crazy electronica stuff… The song’s floating around on Google so I won’t bother providing links.
I’ll provide lyrics tomorrow. It’s 6:30am and I need to sleep. 😛

m-flo – Love Me After 12am (feat. Alex of Clazziquai)

Watch me when the sky is dark and sun is sleep
Time is here for me to show you wait and see
Want to love you, give you just ’bout everything
Won’t you come see me after 12AM
That’s when I change…(×3)
I know you’ll love me after 12AM

seu ka chi wa dam bae yeon gi reul
teol eo nae deut cha ril il eo na
geu wa ham gge hal neo e saeng gak e
meot jeok eun sseun ut seum man jit ne

it’s true eo saek ha ji man
been screwed, ne ge da ga ga
ddeol li neun na e ip sul lo
geu e pum e seo beo seo nal su it gil

Watch me when the Tokyo light glow in the street
Something turns me on and makes me want to scream
Wanna hug you, rub you up and down to your feet
I let myself looser after 12AM
That’s when I change…(×3)
I know you’ll love me after 12AM

Take me down to Akihabara City where the laptop’s cheap and light are pretty
Let’s get fitted, with the villainy outfits
Chillin’ with velour suits make your boy jealous with the Cinema tics, got killa tactics
So when clock hits 12 I be feelin that kiss
Yeeeeaaaahhhh!! It’s about that time
When I step out the phone booth watch me shine
In my linked up chains, vintafe frames
Chanel’s see right through your tinted brains
Let’s switch lanes, out the mundane
so we can exchange names and be addicted to each other like Jane’s…surely
yes to the y’all and…we transforming
get metabolic that’s how we ballin’
From Cybertron to the stage of Apollo

ga byeop go byeon deok seu ro un
neo ran geol na neun al ji man
someone else who could be my love
neo man i na e haeng bok i ran geol

Nobody ROBOTs, act like they so HOT
swarm like locusts, please move over
yall’s getting’ NO LOVE, hold up now
Room full of boom Clouds bigger than Louvre
Brown sugar on a soup Matsutake shrooms
From June to the mouth of the Moon I Lampoon
And lay on the sands of the Planet Dune

Huckleberry Finn in the skies
I’m lookin’ at Smurfs play games
Well, there’s fruits and we surf
Though the starry windows

Watch me when the sky is dark and sun is sleep
Time is here for me to show you wait and see
Want to love you, give you just ’bout everything
Won’t you come see me after 12AM
That’s when I change…(×3)

Watch me when the Tokyo lights glow in the street
Something turns me on and makes me want to scream
Wanna hug you, rub you up and down to your feet
I let myself looser after 12AM

Beauty Pop

Posted by kamekazen on December 15, 2007

I just started reading this manga. It seems a lot like the drama “Bijou Shounen Celebrity”. Lots of haircutting, beauty as a theme, asshole-y guys. Mmmm… I’ll update this once I finish at least one volume of the manga.

Oh ho ho… I’m really liking this manga. I’ve gotten up to volume 3 (you can check out the manga for free here). The characters are fairly likeable. The art is pretty decent. The proportions are very nice, not like a lot of other shoujo manga (ugh… the weird proportions for all the characters). I’ll provide a short summary in a bit.

Short summary:
A trio of three talented boys are part of the Scissors Project. They have the ability to make any girl they want to become beautiful. Shougo is the genius hairstylist. Kei is the happy-go-lucky manicurist. Ochiai is the smart make-up artist/club manager. One day, a mysterious talented hairstylist (the young heroine, Kiri — what an awesome pun XD) seems to be challenging their high status as the popular SP.

Read the manga. It’s light-hearted, fun, and innocent. Be forewarned; the plot is really simple and lacks any real drama.

12/17
Aww… I just got to the last scanlated chapter. =/ Now I don’t have anything fun to read.
Oh, and I also hear that Viz bought the license for this and will be translating it for American audiences. Kinda weird… This isn’t something I’d think a lot of Americans would get into.

I told myself I’d get a few pages of my 15 page Japanese essay on otaku done today. Yeah… Didn’t happen. Hm. Boo.
On the bright side, I got myself a new red clock (it wobbles when you poke it but stays upright!), some good Lindt truffles, my present for the Secret Santa thing I’m in.


And a picture of my desk in my dorm room and pictures of Rush Rhees. 😄

Damn it all.

Posted by kamekazen on December 5, 2007

Bah… This week has been pretty crappy. I lost my scarf, beanie, and gloves a couple of times (but found them all again). I just found out today that my tuition bill had been sent to my California home as opposed to my school CPU box. So… I have 5 days to pay it off. I had thought that my BCS 110 exam was on a Friday but checked and found out it’s on a Wednesday. 2 days of studying lost there. I have my last psych. exam next Wednesday and I haven’t even begun studying. My 15 page essay for my Japan pop culture class is due on Thursday and I only have the first page down. My last BCS 183 exam is due next Sunday.
>_< I wish it was Winter Break already. I miss home, I miss my family, I miss Duc. And I miss all the Asian stuff back home.
Ah well.. only 2 more weeks to go.

Ganbarimasu!!

Jason & Lara – Say U Love Me

Posted by kamekazen on December 4, 2007

This song is the opening theme from the Taiwanese drama “It Started With A Kiss“. I tried watching the drama but the subs I was watching it with put me off. But anyways, I really liked this song.

Jason & Lara – Say U Love Me

Jason:
Say that you love me Say that you care ~
Say that you love me Say that you care ~

Prince of Tennis (live action movie)

Posted by kamekazen on December 1, 2007

Whoa-ho-ho. I just finished watching Prince of Tennis the live action movie. Well, as I pretty much expected, it was pretty bad. The movie loosely followed the anime/manga. The movie was supposed to have covered between episodes 1 through 68, but there was only maybe 15 episodes’ worth of content. A bit of the team rankings was shown and then there were some matches between Ryouma and his father and a match versus Tezuka. Then it skips all the way to the Seigaku vs. Hyoutei arc. Hm… So 68 episodes in 2 hours… Yeah, no character development whatsoever. None of the characters had any of the charm that made them likeable in the anime. The special tennis moves each character did were obviously fake. A couple of things were changed in the movie as well. It seemed like Momo and Taka switched personalities. Ryuuzaki was a completely different person in the movie. Sakuno was no where to be seen. Instead, in her place was Hitagi’s younger mute sister (who isn’t in the anime or the manga). For more differences, see the Wiki page.
But, because I love Fuji and the guy that plays Kikumaru in the movie (Adachi Osamu), I enjoyed the movie despite all of its shortcomings.

I give this movie a 3/10 plus 1 point because I love Prince of Tennis. So a 4/10 overall.
