Aku no Hana

It has been a while I got this excited for an anime. In fact, I can't remember the last anime that got me all worked out like this. Needless to say, I think Aku no Hana is a very awesome anime. I definitely recommended it to everyone.

A Year Older: Again

It’s that day when I got another level up in life. I’m turning a year older again today. So many things have changed in a course of a year. I read what I wrote on my birthday last year and I almost choked with laughter at how ridiculous everything sounds.

Goodbye 2012 and Hallo 2013

So overall, year 2012 has indeed been kinder to me. I have achieved what I set out to achieve but most importantly, I unexpectedly found love which is easily the highlight of the year for me.

Light Writings: Love II

I need an outlet to express how I feel nowadays. To be honest, things are going too good for me at the moment to the point that I am sort of living in fear for I do not want these extremely good feelings, and the love I have for him to end. If all these are gone tomorrow, there is a big probability that I might lose sanity.

Light Writings: Crush II

Welp, looks like we are having this conversation again after so many years. Well 2 years and 3 months to be exact. The last time I wrote about my crush, I was in a different state of mind where I know it can be nothing more than just that, a crush.

Figma Drössel

I've waited for her for two long agonizing months. It was only recently that my order was confirmed. She finally arrived early afternoon today. It goes without saying that I was super stoked. I couldn't wait to get my work done so that I can spend time with her.

I think I got tears in my eyes when I first held her in my hands

I think the image inside the box is pretty

She comes with 5 pair sets of hands, a stand, the PROSPERO book, the flight unit Obruchev and 2 different sets of fashion units for her head.

She found Grimmjow's pet, Sauber to her liking

She thinks education is important and shares that thought with the other figures. Konata of course didn't take the lecture seriously

I love taking pictures of her back. I think she's sexy that way. Just look at that ass!

More close up on her ass

Gotta love the reflection of lights in her eyes

I couldn't find any fault with Ojou-sama. All the joints are perfect. So are the accessories. What I like the most about her is her flexibilities without having to rely on her stand. I can see why figuretards go gaga for her. Even though I have to pay double the price for her, it was worth it. Now I shall wait for her nendoroid version :3

Time for a group picture!

For more introduction pix0rs of her, go to my flickr.

klux-taicho vs arranklux

I'm bored and thought that I should make this post as a back up. God knows how many time I have to re-type everything when the thread got deleted or when Facebook decided to fuck with my account.

As I have mentioned before, I am role playing as the 6th Squad Captain in Official Gotei 13 group in Facebook (yeah I'm THAT crazy about Bleach). Technically I'm role playing Byakuya. A great excused for me to be bitchy and snobby and get away with it.

I was born on silver platter in one of the noblest clan in Soul Society, the Kluxchiki clan XD. I have been here all my life. I went to the shinigami academy, excel in everything and graduated on top of my class. After the graduation, I was a VC in the 12th Squad. Not long after that the spot for 6th Division Captain opened up. I decided to apply for it since member of the Kluxchiki clan has long served for the division and got the spot quite easily considering my opponent at that time wasn't much of an opponent.

the one with the captain robe is me, holding my shikai. next to me is my former VC. I'm a pervert hence I required my squad shinigamis to wear mini robes at all times ^_^

My zanpaktou's name is Eika which means song in English. If you think that my zanpaktou is sound based, you deserved an e-cookie and a bootey shake. Details of my zanpaktou are as follows:

~ Name: Eika (song)

~ Sealed state: Normal looking katana with black blade

~ Spirit: Crane

~ Release command for shikai: Ketsui Eika (song of determination)

My zanpakutou in shikai form is a double edged sword.

It will allow me to manipulate sound waves. With every slice or jab of the sword, I will manipulate the sound that was created during contact and combines it with my reatsu to deepen the injuries via the sound that travels through the slice. It will cut the blood vessels and if it points straight to the vital part of the body, it could mean an instant death.

My hearing abilities are super sensitive. I can hear every moves make by my opponent which allow me to determine his/her where about even without me having to see them.

For defense, I can create a invisible sphere barrier made of sound waves by flicking the blade.

~ Release command for bankai: Bankai Eika Ayatsuri (manipulation of Eika)

The sword remains in it shikai form however, the zanpakutou will turn invisible as it vibrates too fast for the eyes to see (imagine a giant vibrat0r)

Because all things make sound, whenever the enemy’s zanpaktou hit the barrier I created or clashes with my zanpaktou, I can manipulate and make his/her own zanpaktou send the reflected sound that will deafened the owner’s ear, by channeling it through the hand that is holding the zanpaktou. If he/she releases it, my manipulation will also end but this will give me time to counter-attack.

~ Release command for bankai stage 1: Senkai Eika Hanketsu (revolution of Eika judgement)

When I swing my zanpakutou towards the enemy, the intense sound waves from the vibration is so dense that it can basically blast through the enemy. It can definitely take down the solidest wall (very much like Ichigo's Getsuga Tenshou but mine is made of sound waves). Imagine if I stab the enemy with it. It does not only limit to straight line but can dance as I wish it and go several directions at once. This counter balances my shikai as I'm no longer limited to close-combat fighting.

~ Release command for bankai stage 2: Chakujitsu Eika Zetsumei (the steady song of death).

This is the real name of my zanpaktou so when I summon it, it will lend me its full power. It will produce a song that can be heard within 100m radius and as the ears collect the sound, the sound pressure is amplified 1000 times through the middle portion of the ear and done damage to the ear drums, deafening the enemy (or any other person that is unfortunate enough to be in the 100m radius) that they feel like their heads are about to explode. As the enemy is stunt from the damage, I will then finish them off.

my zanpaktou in spirit form. anything less than beautiful and graceful are unacceptable.

Thanks to some plot twist in the role playing, I now have a separate hollow known as Arranklux whose manifestation of power is the opposite of my shinigami's and have different fighting style too.

I personally like the Arranklux version of me more than the captain version of me.

p/s: I am fucking retarded when it comes to use computer application for drawings hence all my drawings and fanarts are done oldskool style: paper, pencil and pen. I don't have a scanner either so I rely on my camera for the shots. With that said, please excused the poor quality of both the drawings and the pictures ^_^

Eve no Jikan

As of the time I wrote the review of this series, there is only one episode that has not been released yet which mean I have watched the other 5 episodes. The reason I did not wait for the series to complete is simply because I am too damn impressed by it. It wouldn't matter anyway. A gem is a gem after all.

Eve no Jikan is an ONA produced by Studio Rikka and directed by Yasuhiro Yoshiura, who by the way, owned the studio. Naturally, with a guy of his talent, Eve no Jikan does not disappoint. If you don't know how talented he is, he has been compared to Makoto Shinkai, who was responsible for Voices of the Distant Star, 5 Centimeters Per Second and The Place Promised in Our Early Days. That itself speaks volume of his talent and explained why do I have such a high regard for Eve no Jikan.

Eve no Jikan tells the story of a (not so distant) future where humans are living with android. It is a name of a cafe where you can't discriminate androids and must treat them as equal. Not that you can tell who is an android and who isn't since they didn't wear their 'halo' inside the cafe. Two teenage boys, Rikuo and Masaki often visited the cafe and most of the stories evolved around these two boys.

Masaki: my favorite character in the series

The story progresses nicely and actually makes you think of what would you do if you are living in that future, which lets be honest, is totally plausible given the technology growth and change. Even though it is a science fiction, it is not overly futuristic. There are some hilarious moments. I remember in episode 4 where this robot walks into the cafe and start behaving so ridiculously retarded. It was fucking hilarious. It also touches some of the more serious issue. I shuddered at the thought of androids getting their independece. For a 15 minutes per episode, the story runs pretty deep.

I have no complains for the sound effects. It was perfectly composed to complement the anime. The voice actors does a good job at it too. Everyone is in character and no one sounds obnoxious.

Even no Jikan has a certain charming originality to it and has diplay quality that is rather rare in anime nowadays. The digital painting fascinates me and I like how they utilized the camera-like imitation to make the story feel more real.

Eve no Jikan is like a breath of fresh air.

Edit: Finished watching the final episode. Instead of the usual 15 minutes, we are served with 27 minutes of awesomeness. It was... no words can describe how fucking win this ONA is. Exceptional!

Letter Bee: Light and Blue Night Fantasy

Letter Bee is one of the Autumn anime of 2009 that I look forward to. Knowing that the anime is an adaptation of the manga makes me want to watch it even more. I want to pick up the manga but since idle time is a luxury nowadays, it was a given that I couldn't afford to read another new manga. I just have to settle with just the anime for now.

This review however is for the special episode before the full season is released.

As the tittle suggested, Letter Bee is about delivering letter/mail/package. Letter Bee is equivalent to your modern day postmen. Bee is the company where Lag, the protagonist works at.

Meet the protagonist

The girl behind him is Niche. I don't know what the fuck is that furry animal on top of her head is but its name is Steak. Anyway, many refers her as Lag's guardian Dingo, whatever that is.

Meet Darwin. Stinky and VERY old.

Ralgo Llyod, the Chief of Bee. Possible pedophile.

the only hottie so far. Possibly horny for Ralgo

Gatekeeper Signal. He makes me fangasm.

Light and Blue Night Fantasy tells the tale of Lag delivering an important package to Elena, a former Letter Bee. They are to make a journey to Silencio. He is to bring a veteran as a guide for this delivery. That's where Darwin steps in. Lag doesn't know this but Darwin was once Elena's Dingo and the real package for Elena is Darwin himself. Ralgo keeps this a secret from Lag for he knows if Darwin finds out he'll abandon the trip.

Letter Bee is a hazardous occupation. You might get attacked by Gaichuu during delivery hence why Lag carries a gun. The gun is called Shindan and is used to fire Heart when Gaichuu attacked. Shindan's ammunition is something that is called Spirit Amber. Lag's spirit amber is his red stone eye.

What is a Gaichuu you asked? They are bugs but with size of a monsters ^^"

Btw, Dingo is just a name given to the guardian. They pretty much protects the Bee from any harm. Niche for example, can hardens her hair and used it as a weapon against Gaichuu. Steak is usable too for he found their opponent weak spot. So guardian Dingo are not really human. They come in many forms, shapes and sizes. The relationship between a Dingo and a Letter Bee runs deep. It is as if they are partner for life.

Gauche. A Letter Bee too. I is definitely hot for him. He is pretty much the reason why Lag wants to be a Letter Bee. He is just made of pure win and awesomesauce

Ralgo when he was a youngin' *drools*

As you can see, I have no complains when it comes to the characters. The voice of each character suits them perfectly, so are the character designs. I personally thinks that Lag's voice is super cute and makes him appears more adorable and wot not.

No complains on the animation either. It is very pretty and smooth. I can feel that the production house puts a lot of effort with this episode. I appreciate that and hope the quality will stay consistent through out the season.

If there's one thing I do not like about Letter Bee, it is the way the Gaichuu met their death. It just wasn't dramatic enough imo. Other than that, I'm sure the full season of Letter Bee is going to be an enjoyable ride.

Diary of a tard - week 4, September '09

Sunday, September 21

Selamat Hari Raya to everyone who is celebrating the month of Syawal. I'm in front of my klux0r (yeah he's my lappy. I named him too, thanks to blur for the inspiration :P) catching up on my anime (addicted much?). I probably should spends this time updating my fanfic but I tell myself that I need inspirations and anime provides plenty.

Konata and Haruhi do not want to be left behind

First up on my catch up list is Tokyo Magnitude 8.0. Earlier in the episodes, it was Mari who constantly needs to comfort the two siblings. Now it seems like Mari needs comforting more than the two of them. In episode 9, Mari finally managed to get to Sangenjaya only to find her house burnt down with news that her daughter and mom might have died in the fire. I was amazed at how strong the kids were in this situation. It was such a relief when the kids found Hina. I like the subtle way they try to convey the victims’ feelings to us. I can certainly share their anguish, sadness and desperation.

They reminisced about Marimo-neesan who Chief is very fond of in Kanamemo episode 8. It was a sweet episode thanks to Marimo-neesan. I'm gonna repeat myself: I really like the Chief and she is the perfect size for nendoroid too!

Zettai Karen Children chapter 188: I think Hyoubu should drop by the Children's apartment to celebrate Kaoru's birthday instead of watching from afar. But I guess his time playing the villain is getting a major cut down with the appearance of Yuuri/Phantom Daughter. Oh and they showed us more Phantom than they had ever did before. Looks like Phantom is using his own daughter to do his evil deeds. I foresee Yuuri to switch sides soon.
I lol'd when I read how Minamoto get flustered around Kaoru due to her kissing the Phantom Daughter.

Monday, 21 September

Kana and the Chief go on a diet in episode 9 of Kanamemo. I was like huh? Why a 10 year-old kid needs to go on a diet?! Apparently the Chief thought that she's getting fat when in fact she just got bigger. Phew that was a relief. I hate it when anime sending out the wrong message about beauty. Anyway, to help Kana out with her diet, Hinata lends her a dog suit. Somehow the episode ends up with Kana looking after her friend's dog =\
Btw, it is just me or is Yuuri is like the male version of Karasuma Oji from School Rumble?

Tuesday, 22 September

I'm getting tired of watching the same shit repeated itself over and over again in Umineko no Naku Koro ni but I was pissed when Battler said he believes in Beatrice in episode 10. The bitch I mean witch was trying my patience. More so in episode 11 when Battler fully surrendered to her. It was really painful to see him naked and in chain. WHAT. THE. FUCK?! Just when I thought it is over we start back from zero but with more bitches I mean witches! Freaking Jeebus...

Time to catch up on Shangri-La! Lady Ryoko reminds me of Beatrice so I dislike her right away. I still need to get my head around what is going on. What I get so far after episode 4 is everyone wants to go to Atlas, Metal0Age is an anti-government organization, Kuniko is the next leader of Metal-Age, Lady Mikuni can detects lies and will killed liars at leisure, Leon is gay for Sion (incest!!) who is a masochist because he loves it when Lady Ryoko punishes him and Atlast Lottery is like the shit Island movie (starring Ewan McGreggor) where the supposed winners were mislead to believe they are going to paradise. Oh and I love the sexual tension between Kuniko and Major Kunihito Kusanagi :3

When Kuniko goes to Akihabara, she and Momoko met the Old Loli, Old Army and Old Camera men. These retarded otakus make all sorts of noises when they are communicating. It was rather funny.

Bleach episode 238 is a fanservice for Hyourinmaru fans so I is feeling appreciative this week ^_^

Thursday, September 24

They introduced Miss Nina, the taylor, in chapter 37 of Kuroshitsuji. She is a possible lesbian and/or a pedophile who is gay for Mey-Rin and horny for little children. This is such a wasteful and boring chapter. The highlight is Ciel trying to hide the mark at his back -__-

Urgh Kaname and Yuuki are such dicks. Incest is fucking euwww when it comes to these two. Vampire Knight chapter 54 introduced us to Sara and Oujo, another pure blood. Both kinda have ill intention towards Kaname and Yuuki. But who the hell cares. I want moar ZERO!!!

Has mixed feelings for Bleach chapter 375 but one thing for sure, the spread is freaking delicious!!


Naruto chapter 465 is as boring as ever. Sasgay knocked the pillars and with everyone trapped, he looks for Danzo. Fucking selfish gay bastard.

Relationship status: Unknown

How many years has it been? I stop counting when we passed the 10 years benchmark.

What did you say when I reminded you? Holy shit, we have been in and out of love for that long?!

I couldn't help but chuckled. That is so typical of you. Appeared to be naive but is all knowing.

And so you thought that another 5 years wouldn't make a difference.

Frankly speaking, I don't fucking know thus our relationship status remained unchanged/ unknown/unspecified.

Does that changed the fact that I'm mighty fond of you and you of I? No.

Hence the question of why do we need to label everything? If we are meant to be together, we will be making babies no matter what.

anata ga daisuki desu


Bleach: Chapter 375

OH. MY. FREAKING. GAWD... O_O *mouth foaming, brain explodes!!*

This spread makes my week, man. It is totally stupendous! Gah I love Bleach!!!

Anyway, about this week's chapter... did Stark just... died? For fucking real? Just... like that? Just with a shikai? Wasn't he supposed to be like the fucking primera espada, the strongest there is? So... wait... did he really just fucking died?!



I want to fucking rant some more but Hallibel's getting gang rape kinda makes me want to squeal in delight.

and ZOMG!!! Why didn't I get to see Gin vs Shinji?!! Just. WHAT. THE. FUCK?! THAT'S THE FIGHT THAT I WANT TO FUCKING SEE KUBO!!! >=(

*fucking fangasm is an understatement*

The end of this chapter is something that I did not expect. My heart flutters at the unexpected twist. I have been complaining about the pacing of the story lately and BAM!!

*teh awesome ending*

We got Stark dying/dead, Gin vs Shinji (which we need to fucking see the fight!) and Aizen killing off Hallibel. I don't know whether to rant or be full of praise for Kubo.

What I do know, after 8 years, I still freaking in love with Bleach.

and this kinda blows for our friends in the Hueco Mundo group *chuckles*

ps: Ulquiorra is the strongest after all <3

Raya trip to Sepang Gold Coast

Konata helping out with the packing

My families and I went to Kuala Lumpur on second day of raya. On our way there, we stopped at Bagan Lalang to visit our relatives. Since their house is less than a kilometer away from Sepang Gold Coast, we did not miss out the chance to check out the beach. While my cousins and nieces were busy taking a dip in the ocean, I used the opportunity to shoot some photos with Konata and Haruhi, my two best friends in this trip.

some quiet time which last about... less than 2 minutes

... thanks to Haruhi

Haruhi calling out to Konata

and she responded immediately

but she was rather fascinated by the thing she saw before her

Konata didn't give much thought to Haruhi either

as she couldn't stop admiring her own shadow

which lead to heat stroke!

Haruhi to the rescue! (my fav pix of the day)
Once Konata regained consciousness, Haruhi led her to the water. Once again Konata gets uber excited when her feet hit the waves

Last pose before I send them packing...

just to go to back to the Seri Malaysia hotel where we were staying for a dip in the swimming pool.

The hungry Konata decided that she rather like eating her coronet besides the pool.

Haruhi is rather fond of Konata it seems. I am not surprised if Konata is now one of SOS Brigade members ^__^"


A little info on Sepang Gold Coast. Like I said it is located at Bagan Lalang, Sungai Pelek, Selangor and the project is a huge one since it is the longest coastal paradise in Asia (22km). The villas are build and arranged like the shape of a palm tree. It was pretty magnificent. I can't wait for them to be fully operational.

p/s: for more pix0rs go to my flickr.
