Late release of REI’s artwork. Maybe you have already known, REI (Circle name: REI’s ROOM) is not a Japanese but a Chinese (Taiwan) and also one of the most talent illustrators in the world. Sometimes I got confused with her artwork and Satoshi Kiba’s (木場智士, Circle name: RETRO).
When I first heard of the news yesterday evening, I was shocked. But this is no joking, we all have to accept the truth. Steve is gone, the world has lost a visionary, a creative genius and an amazing human being, and we lost a great teacher. If we say Bill Gates brought us the Computer, then Steve stroke the innovative revolution on us. The world has changed become of these two geniuses. And now one is gone, genius becomes lonely. Bill met Steve for more than 30 years, and described their relationship as colleagues, competitors and friends over the course of more than half their lives.
Anime series Rental Magica has recently listed its new Anime adaptation. With a subtitle of Mahou Tsukai to Kamikakushi, the series first got its green-light back in 2007 with a total of 24 episodes.
This Anime is not disappointing me because I’ve no expectations on this one. Well, in fact, I admit, still have some, probably because Hiro Suzuhira has made me pay too much attention on the illustrations of Akikan!, even exceed the Anime itself. The quality of the Anime as poor as I have expected, since I haven’t read the novel before, it’s difficult for me judge the story itself. However, one thing should be mentioned, the hero of the Anime Kakeru Daichi is really a dangerous man ^^.
The first chapter Overlooking View (俯瞰風景, Fukan Fukei) of movie Kara no Kyoukai – The Garden of Sinners was release first in theatre and then on DVD. A long time has passed since the first released of the movie, long enough for me to write a review before the DVD version of Chapter four Garan no Do comes out.
FYI, I’ve collected some data from all kinds of website, Wiki, other blogs, in English, in Japanese etc., all rights belong to their respect owners.
The movie of Anime Kara no Kyoukai finally comes to the last episode. The DVD of the last chapter Kara no Kyoukai Movie 7: Satsujin Kousatsu (Part 2) (劇場版 空の境界 第七章 殺人考察(後)) has just released recently and finally fans like us who don’t live in Japan have chances to enjoy this masterpiece. I’ve long been interested in TYPE-MOON’s works, especially the novel written by Kinoko Nasu (奈須 きのこ).
Sometimes I really think I am a fan of Shoujo manga. But, I’m a 100 percent male. What makes me think this way is that Shoujo manga is always encouraging, like Full Moon o Sagashite, the heroine Mitsuki did her best to be a singer, and this time, an idol.
The opening song Dream Star by the generous will be released on 29th. October. You can have a preview below (TV size, again…). The song fits the anime very much, encouraging people to look forward, as well as the heroine Kyoko.
So far I convinced myself that Skip Beat! should be the best anime to encourage people looking forward this month. Continue with the previous episode. Kyoko has to show her talent to the judges and the owner. Guess what?
This episode was mainly about how Kyoko decided to come back to L.M.E. and what she would have to face later in her life. Continued with the previous episode. Kyoko failed in the audition and found a part-time job in the gasoline station, doing works that had nothing to do with her revenge. What Kyoko did to regain her courage is to imagine which seemed to her daily homework.
Kyoko accepts L.M.E. owner’s invitation and joins the new department “Love Me”. However, the department itself seems a little bit beyond imagine, not to mention the pink uniform with a large LOGO on the back. Despite all those things hurting one’s self-esteem, it is the attitude of people towards “Love Me” department that really challenge Kyoko.
