The Random Thoughts of Triwi


Haruhi “Season 2”, Kannagi 14, and other stuff.

So I’ve been on an unintentional hiatus for Anime after watching all three seasons of Zero no Tsukaima back to back. Ok so technically I’m not quite done yet.. three more episodes in season three and the OVA to go, that I have been putting off cause of stupid reasons. Well any way..

So I decided to check on Haruhi and see if there was any mention of the “fabled” season two. Apperently the “season two” is actually just un-aired episodes that fit in between the original run. Technically it is, yet is not a season two, depends on how you look at it I guess. It’s a new block of episodes, but these episodes fit in with the original run. However you look at it, I suppose I’ll be calling it season 2.. because it’s easier then explaining it. I have not yet seen the episode, it’s downloading right now, so I figured write a random blog barely anyone’s gonna read to kill time. Go me I guess?

Along with Haruhi I checked out to see if any mention of bringing Kannagi out of hiatus was about. Well seeing as it really isent, I did see that they released episode 14 on the DVDs. With the power of a series of tubes we call the internet (that joke still amuses me), it’s bound to be ripped to anime sites/youtube/wherever else really fast. Sure enough it is, I couldn’t exactly find any subs on youtube, but I found it on some anime site I go to. Not in the mood to do a picture review however. I felt it didn’t have the charm the previous episodes of Kannagi had. It was alright, still goofy as ever, and the whole relationship between Jin and Nagi even if slightly progress. I still don’t like Jin but oh well, I watch it for the rest of the cast any way. By now however I highly doubt we will see new episodes or even new manga. I haven’t been actively searching for the answers, but I think it’s safe to assume nothing is gonna happen.

In the “other” portion of this mediocre quality blog post, I see that gamestop managed to get more of the Blazblue artbooks in. I asked about it and they said they were gonna fill the orders in based on when they came in. Considering I ordered mine the day after they first went off the site, I have a pretty good feeling I’ll receive one, last I checked the artbook was still a promotion put up on the site. My order receipt says nothing about it however, but according to the email I got it’s a “wait and see” scenario. I do think I managed to narrow my choice of who I might try to master to two characters. I don’t work on just one person, in Guilty Gear my two were Dizzy and Order Sol, and sometimes A.B.A. For Blazblue I’m thinking Rachel, and the apperently “Loli” v-13. Not exactly sure you can consider v-13 a Loli but I’ve seen it referenced multiple times. I’m slowly counting down the days until it comes out, I am very very anxious!

Day too late!

Blah!  So I finally manage to get some cash (Wewt Rebate check for $70 came in today) I can burn on games.  BlazBlue is something I’ve been awaiting for a long time, and now it comes out two weeks after my birthday.  On Gamestop they had a free upgrade to the Limited Edition version of Blazblue (I’m a sucker for LE’s for games I want, Gears of War 2 for example, totally worth it) and a free artbook.  I LOVE Anime style art, the rest of my blog, My Pictures folder, and both my computer backgrounds would tell you that.  However, apperently after May 5th, Gamestop pulled the artbook and is no longer giving it out, just a day late for me!

Oh well, I’ll for once look at the bright side: Free ugprade to the LE is a good thing.  Also there is bound to be scans of it on the internet, probably even on the day the game comes out, probably even on Dustloop.  If I really want it that bad, EBay might be a choice.  However I had like 17 dollars on my Edge card from, I forget where, so I got the next day shipping and still had some leftover to pay for the game.  So I guess it all works out in the end.



Guilty Gear Accent Core Plus, and other stuff

Woot, looks like I was wrong in my last post, that is a good thing too!  Turns out Accent Core plus version is infact coming to the states! The release date is set for Spring of 2009 which is just around the corner.  I have not seen a confirmed date yet however.  It’s coming out on the ps2 again and the PSP, well ok the Wii too but it would be akward to play on the Wii.  I just recently managed to get a hold of a PSP myself finally, I had to trade in a lot of old junk.  I picked up Valkyrie Profile: Lenneth with it, I have not gotten far in it so I can’t really give my thoughts on it just yet.  Despite that I’m still getting it on my old boxy version of my PS2, can’t beat a controller for a fighter game.

While doing a little searching for some random Accent Core Plus material, as I can’t wait for it, I found out about another Arc System works game in the making: Blazblue.  I don’t know too much about the game now but it looks realy cool.  I keep hearing rumors that it is gonna be PS3 exclusive.  While they alone are just probably rumors, started by some random people who are PS3 fans and think they should only get it, that still kinda worries me.  I do not want to have to buy a PS3, but Blazblue just looked so neat.  From the looks of it a console port is still a ways off for Japan, so even further away for even the remote chance it hits state side. One can dream though..

I found out that in a few months Arcana Heart 2 port is going to be on the Japanese PS2.  I can only hope that it soon follows over here to America. I really liked the first one, I still play it from time to time.

Unrelated news:  I am almost done watching Chrono Crusade, I pick up an episode here and there. I just have been doing a lot of other things so my Anime time is cut into.  School and work count, but I guess playing too much WoW isent a good enough excuse for less Anime huh?

Oh and I went today wearing only a single contact in my eye, thats fun, but not really.  Random much?
