Hetalia Ep 31

Episode 31: Hetalia Gakuen no Christmas

Thursday, 27 August 2009

mei-chan no shitsuji

i'm conflicted.

who should Mei end up with?

usually with this kind of situation, i would always side with my favorite guy, be it in the j-drama (dorama) or manga.

but not this time round.

it was obvious that the dorama was going for the Rihito x Mei pairing, and i was more than happy with that since Rihito was played by Mizushima Hiro. and they did nothing but put the 2 of them together for the entire series.

the manga on the other hand, had some really stiff competition going around.

besides the current arc that had more than enough bishonens with Mei's grandpa rounding up all the prospective husband-to-be's, we see a 17-year-old Kento.

i was already rooting for Kento during the Lucia arc. but he is absolutely stunning in the current arc.

and delicious-looking. (ohohohohohoho.)

i'm practically swooning all over the place.

a picture speaks a thousand words. so let the pictures speak for themselves.

dorama full cast
live-action cast
not as much bishonens as hanakimi, but the ladies made up for it.

the 3 main leads.
live-action mains
Shinonome Mei (Eikura Nana), Shibata Rihito (Mizushima Hiro) and Shibata Kento (Sato Takeru).

Hetalia Ep 29 & 30

Episode 29: invincible Russia?

R: "it's snowy down there, so i don't need a parachute."
apparently, nothing does seems to be able to kill him. remember Busby's chair from Ep26?

Episode 30: England & the Tengu

i burst out laughing at Japan's version of the ED.

upcoming fall anime

looking through the upcoming Fall season at Moonphase, already there are many series that have caught my eyes.

1) Darker Than Black: Ryūsei no Gemini - direct sequel to the last DtB from 2 years ago.
2) Kimi no Todoke - been wanting to read the manga for ages. maybe this will prompt me to read it soon. (18/08 -> started reading online. very nice! will wanna get from kino soon. heehee)
3) Miracle train - lots of cute guys. 'nuff said.
4) FAIRY TAIL - i have it on word by birdy that the manga is good. let's hope this doesn't flop like the Rave Master anime.
5) Tatakau Shisho - The Book of Bantorra - don't know much, but the character designs looks cool, medieval setting, and has nice-sounding OST from PV. should be good. *cross fingers*
6) To Aru Kagaku no Railgun - spin-off from last year's To Aru Majutsu no Index, with Misaki as the main lead.
7) Kobato. - YAY! another CLAMP work. something to tide over while awaiting for Tsubasa's next OVA.
8) Tentai Senshi Sunred - YAY YAY! Season 2! more laughs and gags at chain-smoking superhero.

and probably much more, which i will pick up after RC does its usual Fall preview in 1 month's time.

very much looking forward to Fall.

Portrait of Pirates NEO Sanji

my pride and joy as of this moment.

i couldn't stop beaming after i picked it up from latendo.

OP sanji POP 07

Wednesday, 5 August 2009


latendo's pre-order list just came in with the One Piece Strong World Kuji set.

the one i said i was drooling over and couldn't find picture for in my last post?

here's the picture now.
OP strong world kuji

but OMG!

i nearly had a heart attack when i saw the price!

it's bloody expensive!!

and you can only pre-order if you wanna get the entire set of 29, which not only includes the entire crew, but also plushies, drinking glasses, clear files, keychains and bandanas.

i only want the Strawhat Pirates crew!!

they're gorgeous!!


i think i'll just wait for it to arrive in Nov and buy the loose items.

hopefully they might be selling the set of Strawhat Pirates crew only.

but OMG!!!

i still can't believe it's so expensive!!!

i'm definitely still hyperventilating.

Strong World

the upcoming 10th One Piece Film: Strong World will be released on 12/12/2009.

i'm so excited that i have already pre-ordered a gashapon set of the Strawhat Pirates crew from latendo.

OP strong world set
it will be my most expensive gashapon set to date, but i know i will regret if i don't get it.

like the One Piece Mini Bighead set. >_<.``

there are many more merchandise to be released for the much anticipated 10th movie. i'm already drooling over another one that has the crew in non-SD form (couldn't find picture. sorry!). i hope latendo brings that in too.

in case u haven't heard and wonder what the big hype is over the up-coming movie. Odacchi is the main brains behind it.

yup. not the TV animators.

really really.

our own mangaka, Oda "Odacchi" Eiichiro.

so you can pretty much guess how high most fans' expectations are.

the only thing is, the DVD wouldn't be out until Oct 2010, which is when the rest of the world will get to enjoy the movie.

so unless you're so obsessed you're actually going to fly to Japan to catch the movie, please wait along with the rest of us.

but! the wait will be worth it.

or at least,

the merchandise will be. =P

check out the official website for trailers.

PS. went to latendo to collect my much awaited toy today. revealing soon. together with the shabondy island set. ^_^.``

PPS. guess what! gugu is gonna start buying One Piece merchandise soon. hahahaha. she super fast with the anime too, has already caught up to episode 380. ~welcome welcome~

Hetalia Ep 27

Episode 27: "but Italy's my only friend..."

continuing on from where Season 1 left off.

i thought this was rather funny, with the looking through of Germany's diary and having him sing his own version of the ED.

not that it's not totally out of tune. haha.
