Asahina Mikuru’s Side Scrolling Action Game Level 1 Playthrough

February 8, 2011

Based on the ‘The Adventures of Asahina Mikuru’ film shot and produced by the SOS Dan, in this game, you take control of Mikuru as she fights her way thorugh the insane world that Haruhi has created.

So, here’s me playing through level one of this pretty fun, but challenging doujin game,朝比奈ミクルの横スクロールアクション or Asahina Mikuru’s Side Scrolling Action Game.

Made and released in 2006, it’s pretty faithful to the original movie. You first start off fighting Tsuruya as the first level boss, working up your way through Taniguchi, Kunikida, Yuki and finally Haruhi.

This video is also me testing out some desktop recording software.

Controls:

Z – Fire Desert Eagles
X – Use Contact Lense Special Power
C – Jump (Tap again for double jump)
V – Pause

Contact Lenses:

Yellow: Rifle Dart
White: Miracle Mikuru Eye R
Blue: Mikuru Beam
Green: Micro Black Hole

You lose a life once you touch a single enemy. Contact lenses act as shields and get destroyed in place of losing a life if you have one equipped.

End of January Acquisitions

January 30, 2011

Anime merchandise acquisition update once again as the beginning of February looms near.

– Spirit Evolving EmperorGreymon
– Yamato’s Valkyrie Display Stand
– Max Factory’s 1/8 Scale Asahina Mikuru MIKURU BEAMMMMMMMMMMMM Ver.

– Macross Plus Movie Edition Artbook
– Bamboo Blade Artbook

Let’s see… Regarding EmperorGreymon/KaiserGreymon currently, due to a sudden bout of serious nostalgia, I’m on a quest to complete my (Japanese) Digimon figure collection. Still have quite a number to go, and I’m financially DRAINED.

I finally bought that Mikuru figure by Max Factory that has been on my To Get list since 2008.

Got that stand to display my YF-19 alongside my YF-21:

Lastly, bought a couple of artbooks as well. For Anime that I love, I try to get the artbooks as well for the character designs/bios and episode guides. In particular, I think that the Macross Plus artbook is simply brilliant. For a huge fan of the OVAs and Movie like me, the artwork of all the mecha, characters and sets is simply phenomenal to look at.
