Pretty low vote count today, but at least Nono-senpai got in to the main tournament. Pretty shocked that Belldandy (she was at No. 39 with 79 votes) didn’t went in, but perhaps it’s a sign of the times…

Lucky Star 17: The Melancholy of Hiiragi Kagami

Lucky Star

A pissed Kagamin is fine too.

Awww… poor Kagamin…. this episode she really had quite a lot of bad luck :X. The sibling quarrel part is just so nicely done. Sometimes, Lucky Star really resembles real life, more so than the other slice-of-life shows.

Zero no Tsukaima II 04: Made of scary onee-san’s, accidental yuri and a lot of snogging

Zero no Tsukaima II

Is it just me, or does Louise’s family have a tendency for S&M?

The best episode of ZnT ever, or the best episode of Znt ever? Whatever it is, this episode was truly made of win. We had:

Code Geass 24 & 25

Code Geass

F*ck. F*ck. F*ck. F*ck.

Sunrise pulls another cliffhanger ending again. WRRRRRRRYYYYYYYYY!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I’m seriously ashamed to admit it, but Sunrise has totally made a fanboy out of me with the gripping, leaves-you-at-the-edge-of-your-seat drama of Code Geass. Now I can’t bloody wait for Fall to arrive with Geass Season 2, hopefully with more C.C. (and her hawt ass) and more epic drama.

Fanboy rantings aside, this episode had a pretty serious kill count. Both sides have taken a lot of losses, and that’s probably why I like Geass so much, as it gives a grim reality of the messy battle. Probably one of the most unexpected parts of the episode was Villetta shooting Ogi point blank, even if she realizes that it has been him who saved her life up till now. Then, there was also the standoff between the Black Knights and Llyod’s team getting interrupted by Nina, threatening to detonate the nuclear device she has been building all along.

And seriously, Lulu is now truly like Light. As smart and cunning he may be, he seriously went too over-confident with his abilities to actually overlook contingency plans and leave Nunnally defenseless, leading her to get kidnapped and forced to run away from the battle, midway, to save her. That will probably not be forgotten by the Black Knights as he’s literally deserting them in the middle of the war. Not to mention, he’s revealed that he was using the Japanese as a pawn for his own plans all along to Karen. Wonder how he’ll spin the story in the next season.

Megami 88: This month is win.

Megami Magazine

Oh god. Don’t you just love summer? Megami continues on with the bikini-theme onslaught this month, and Owen’s words about Megami being the otaku’s FHM rings so true, especially with this issue.

Sigh… one day, Megami will be my (wallet’s) downfall… till then, it’s fap fap fap.

Byousoku 5cm LE DVD arrived!!!

キタ━━━━(゚∀゚)━━━━ !!!!!

Arrived earlier this week, but wasn’t around to get it. Now I can finally make a “merchandise show-off” post, hahahaha!

The version I ordered is the Limited Edition one, and all in all it cost me almost 7000 yen, which equates to around RM200 locally. My father was definitely not very pleased about it… but oh well, I’ve done my part to support the industry!

Anyways, Chihara Minori missed getting in to the top 16 by one vote. Sad.. but oh well, next year. Aya Hirano, coincidentally, has a high chance of getting in to next year’s SaiMoe, lulz.

Saimoe Preliminary 1 Results

SaiMoe 2007

For those who are asking for my Saimoe coverage, here it is. To be honest, covering all the preliminary and group rounds can get quite tiring, so my coverage this year might be infrequent at times.

On to the topic, here’s the results of the first preliminary rounds of Saimoe. The voting for the preliminary round consists of 18 groups, one group a day, and you may up to 10 characters per vote. The top 8 winners of each group will then qualify for the main tournament, while the 9th till the 32nd places will go for the second preliminary rounds, to be held on the 28th. More info can be obtained at the SaiMoe site (english version) itself.

Kaze no Stigma 16: Epic fight is epic.

Kaze no Stigma

Epic fight is so totally epic.

Hahahahaha. Probably the funniest KnS episode to date. Kazuma and his father really are so bad at expressing their feelings. Funniest parts are really how Tachibana manages to stop them both effortlessly everytime, and the expressions of Ayano and Ren’s face when they find out that she’s accompanying Genma to the resort. Also, how Katherine somehow misuses “konnyoku” to irritate Ayano, especially with that emphasis on the middle part. Oh, not forgetting that over-enthusiastic father of Ayano. He’s really desperate isn’t he.

While I kinda expected a full fanservice episode since it’s an onsen episode, but having this kind of fun isn’t that bad too. I wonder how much collateral damage they’ve incurred this episode with all that destruction. Well… at least Ayano’s father will be covering it all.
