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. (^.^;)


Actar’s Reviews 178 – Magical Girl Lyrical Nanoha The MOVIE 1st Limited First Edition Blu-Ray Box

December 24, 2010

One of the Anime movies that I have been most excited for is finally in my possession in Blu-Ray form! How’s the movie? What extras are included with the Limited First Edition Blu-Ray Set? Is it worth the money?

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?

October 5, 2010

‘A curry in need is a curry indeed.’
‘With curry like this who needs enemies?’
‘The greatest ship in life is curry.’

I could go on forever with these.

And Nanoha Month Begins

February 3, 2010

The tip of the iceberg. The drizzle before the rain and the rain before the storm. To begin what I kinda dub ‘Nanoha Month’ (Even though there’s going to be a ton of K-On! and Macross stuff as well), is Figma Nanoha Movie First Version.

…and open the flood gates for already, the most expensive month this year. Why? Just wait and see. (^.^;)

On a side note:

I’m at a complete loss with my review planning. Would like to review Figma Yui this weekend and leave Figma Nanoha Movie First version, which I just got today, till next week. I think I’ll also leave the Figma Nanoha School Uniform Version till next week as well…

…and don’t even talk about my Japan Trip videos which I would like to get up and running as quickly as possible… I’m about halfway done editing through the mountain of footage that I took.

Last but not least, I just chose the prize for the upcoming contest that has been in planning for ages. It’s a prize of EPIC proportions that can easily become a prized possession in any Anime Collector’s collection, not to mention, cost a pretty penny as well.

(Disclaimer: Prize identity subject to change, though unlikely.)
