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.

Actar’s Reviews 180 – Fate Testarossa Voice Clock Showcase and Translation

December 27, 2010

Let me introduce to you the Talking Alarm Clock. Not really something that is commonly talked about or easily obtainable, Talking Alarm Clocks are precisely what they are. Alarm Clocks with alarms that are specially recorded lines of Anime characters by their respective voice actors. These phrases are usually along the lines of trying to wake someone up as we shall soon see.

I’ve been wanting to get one of these for quite awhile, partly out of curiosity and partly due to the novelty factor. However, as far as I know, such clocks aren’t usually readily available at regular online stores. I’ve never seen the Haruhi, Railgun or Bamboo Blade ones up for sale and yet they exist. I suppose they were event or online store exclusives or something to that effect.

However, the clock that I have infront of me can indeed be purchased from any online hobby store. They are tie ins with the Nanoha movie that feature the voices of both Nanoha and Fate, who are voiced by Tamura Yukara and Mizuki Nana respectively.

This one is the Fate Version that has 4 different alarms. The first three are all voiced by Fate, but the last one is by both Nanoha and Fate. While the Nanoha clock has 3 lines voiced by Nanoha and one voiced by both of them.

This is my first attempt at translating, hopefully I’ve done the lines justice. (^.^;)

All these questions and more shall be answered in this review!


A House for my Daughter

December 1, 2010

Well, there’s the phrase “People who live in glass houses shouldn’t throw stones”. Here, my new version of this phrase is “Magical Girls who live in acrylic cases shouldn’t wield gigantic magical intelligent axes”.

Anyways, joking aside, I have finally completed my doll case for Feito~chan. The base and stand comes from the set recommended to me by SleeplessOtaku. However, I didn’t really like the flimsy plastic case and decided to get one custom made. Thanks to my friend for getting this done for me within a week. (^.^) Nice huh?

Also, I spent quite a bit of time trying to get the cape looking decent. How does it look?
