The ED of Haruhi-Suzumiya

May 25, 2009

With the new season of the Haruhi anime series being released, much excitement has been going around. Personally, I don’t really have much time to watch the anime now,now when I’m juggling between regular life and school life. But I did manage to listen to the TV ver. of the season’s new ED, Tomare!

While it doesn’t have that omph of a legend left behind by Hare Hare Yukai, the song sounds rather energetic and hyper. Kinda fitting for Haruhi, eh?

Haru Kona!

May 22, 2009

With Season 2 of The Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya coming out, it’s no wonder people’ve gotten back into the ‘haruhi-ism’  mood. Which means more Haruhi cosplay. Which I will say frankly, burns my eye. Big time.

But anyway, let’s look on the bright side. As least there’s this Lucky Star-Haruhi MAD. 8D

[Touhou PV] Poka Poka Meiling

May 12, 2009

Few days ago, a Touhou PV named Poka Poka Meiling was found in youtube/nico. The song sounds rather pleasant and calming, and the animations are real nice and cute.

Figurine. FIGURE!?

May 7, 2009

Griffon Enterprises. Releasing Touhou Figurines.

YESSAHZ!

And that’s not all. Player 2 colours are also on production as well!

However, 6800 yen would be at about…

$70?

Quickie- Scarlet Weather Raepsody

May 6, 2009

Today after school, I was hanging out with a couple of friends at a food court, and I happened to have my laptop on at that time. Then, one of them asked me to play Scarlet Weather Rhapsody with him, since he’s been conplaining at the lunatic AIs are boring him.

So, having nothing much to do, I agreed with him.

I’ll summarise the matches:

Me VS Him.

Sakuya VS Aya, He won. (It was close, it was close.)

Alice VS Yukari, He won. (My other friend kept telling me that I was fighting Alice’s natural enemy)

Udongein VS Patcholli, He won. (Once again, with the natural enemy thing)

Marisa VS Remilia, He won. ( :< )

And he hardly used any spellcards. I feel so depressed. (Well, no. Not really. xD)

Nights of Nights- K-On!

May 4, 2009

K-on! certainly did make a great name for itself. Apparently, people love these slice-of-life things showing the lives of 4 teenage girls. *ahem LuckyStarHidamariSketch ahem*

And once Un-tan came out as a successful meme, what better way to celebrate K-on than with Nights of Night?

SP “Japan Craze”…

May 1, 2009

Was kind of a letdown.

Sorry there aren’t any pictures available now, my camera phone’s going through one of it’s rebellious periods. Anyway, on the 29th of April, which happened to be a wednesday, the Singapore Polytechnic Foreign Exchange Club (I think) organised a ‘Cosplay event’, lasting from 11am to 4pm. Well, 3pm, to be exact. They were cleaning up during that 1 hour period.

So right after lessons ended at 11am, I rushed over to the venue, right outside foodcourt 5, only to find…

Or more rather, Suika Ibuki’s theme song.

Music Delve: Hayate No Gotoku!!

April 25, 2009

With the second season of Hayate no Gotoku!, Hayate no Gotoku!! (Yes, an additional ! has to be added to show it’s season 2), out, six episodes released and three episodes already subbed, popularity has continued to pick up. HnG is one of those popular, yet not mainstream type of anime/manga, which is what I really like about it. Modesty, yes.

Anyways, without further ado, the Music Delve for Hayate no Gotoku!!

OP: wonder wind (TV size)

The Opening of HnG2 sounds more like those love relationship anime now, instead of the previous season’s more positive sounding songs. Looking at the animation, it seems as though the graphics have been improved.

ED: Honjitsu, Mankai Watashi Iro! (TV size)

Omigawd. An entire song dedicated to Hinagiku. And this songs makes me wanna roll over and die in moe. MOE. I also like the faded colour effect of the video when Hinagiku was singing. The video also fits the tune of the song as well.

Here’s hoping you’ve enjoyed these two songs, and that you guys reading this’ll watch this awesome anime as well.

Squeak, squeak, squeak, NYAN!

April 22, 2009

A new internet MEME has been born recently, and can cause death-by-moe. One of my preferred deaths, to be precise. Then again, which otaku doesn’t wish for death-by-moe?

Featuring… Squeak Squeak Squeak NYAN!

Apparently, a little digging up reveals that this ‘bgm’ was actually from Monster Hunter Freedom 2, and turned into a popular meme thanks to certain people.

Original here.

Here are a few of my favourites:

Cheeeeeeen!

The 19 second Neko-Kagamin.

Nico.

And one should check out KirbyM’s version of this Meme.

Squeak!
