Fate/Zero s1 Blu-Ray Box – It’s Here!

Huzzah, just arrived a couple of days ago. Unfortunately, I’ve been very busy so I haven’t actually got the time to watch it; only been marvelling over the packaging – though I can at least find the time to rip the OST to listen to while I’m doing stuffs.

Notable (Non-H) Touhou Doujins

Ah Touhou, possibly one of the few titles where the SFW doujins are actually in higher demand, which makes sense considering the nature of the verse. Anyway, touhou needs no introduction so let’s cut the chatter: there are easily thousands of doujins floating out there on the internet. Even if one is to download Gaku’s entire batch torrent*, it’ll still be quite a feat to go through them. So hopefully, this little post can help in highlighting several of the more interesting ones as a starting point.

Swimming in cash – a short post on Recettear

Recently got around to playing Recettear. Overall, it certainly was an enjoyable game and I don’t think this game needs much introduction. Or rather, for those unacquainted and are interested, here’s the link to TvTropes.

"My wife was nagging me to pick this up" - Actual dialogue from when the man purchases this from you

A quick browse through blogs and forums also showed favourable comments towards the game. So instead of echoing the same praises, I’ll instead comment on what I think are the flaws and how it could have been improved. Continue reading

Battle Moon Wars – videos of cut scenes

Unlimited Blade Works, Fate/Zero, Fate/Extra and Carnival Phantasm (also Kara no Kyoukai which was not too long ago). Looks like this year is the year of TYPE-Moon, making this an appropriate time to bring back a rather old doujin game. For those who don’t already know, Battle Moon Wars is a tactical RPG done in the style of the Super Robot Wars franchise and is entertaining in how it brings in all the characters from various TYPE-Moon works and dump them all together. So we have another Grail War intersecting with the various plot points of the other titles.

In general, the posts aren’t exactly strategy guides; the main purpose is more of to show off the interesting cut scenes in the game, but I thought it would be too plain to just dump videos. Anyway, I’m basically just going to be putting more details and attention on Acts 3 and 4, as that is when things get really interesting. Acts 1 and 2 were well, not as intense, not facing off against powerful foes that often. Continue reading

Fate/Zero – Ep 01

I was drawn to ufotable only because of Kara no Kyoukai. I haven’t really watched much of the studio’s productions. Of the few I have seen, they were rather forgettable; not bad, but neither memorable. That aside, the first episode of Fate/ Zero certainly looks really promising and it resembles Kara no Kyoukai in more ways than one, which is a good thing I hope. At the very least, I already know that the music in this series will be (is) fantastic. Here’s to hoping an adaptation done right.

Now, of the series itself, well the frustrating thing about watching prequels is that sense of impending dread otherwise known as dramatic irony. You know who are going to win or lose – you can’t help but want to root for a certain character even if you know said individual is doomed to fail and as much as you hope another character to fail, you know it’s not in this one. On a concluding note: GILGAMESH!

Also, I look forward to GSC releasing that figurine of Saber on a motorbike.
