[email protected] SP for PSP

I didn’t think this day was going to come but it did!  [email protected] on a Sony platform, more specifically, the PSP.  Back then the only way to play an [email protected] game was either at the arcade in Japan or on the Xbox 360.  Unlike the PS3 however, 360 has a region lock so even importing a copy wouldn’t do you any good unless you mod it or had a Japanese Xbox 360.

I don’t know about you guys but hell, I can’t wait to try this game out.  It looks amazing even for a PSP.  I mean on 360 yeah I bet it looks all nice with its HD graphics but there wasn’t really any way of playing it here in North America, plus this is portable!  Take your IDOLs anywhere and have them sing 「Go My Way」 hoo-ray!

ARIA The ANIMATION Season 1 DVD Giveaway

Righstuf the company that licensed ARIA The ANIMATION has put up their official website for this series. It’s a very nice website, and the trailer is up for you to view. Too bad the trailer is just clips of the anime with the OP so we don’t get to hear the dub yet. Hopefully they pick a very good cast to voice Alice Carroll, the only coolest character in this anime, Alicia Florence is cool too. I just happened to have a 1/8 Scale PVC figure of her on my desk right now lol.

Rightstuf has decided to release the entire season 1 in one DVD collection. I don’t know if they mean by 1 single DVD which is unlikely or it would just be a complete box set and no individual DVDs would be sold. That means you will get 3 DVDs and the art box which isn’t such a bad deal. A complete box set right away, and if you pre-order right now, the price is $37.49.

And since we are such nice people here at Kisaragi’s Anime Blog, we are going to give away 2 ARIA The ANIMATION Season 1 DVD Collection. Before signing up for this giveaway, please view the Contest/Giveaway Rules first. Sign ups will end once the DVD is released which is on September 30th, 2008.

Xam’d Lost Memories PS3 Exclusive

This amazing new anime from BONES is going to be exclusive, not exclusive that it’s only going to be on the PS3 store but exclusive that Xbox 360 Marketplace won’t get it.  At least that’s what I think they mean by exclusive for PS3. I’m pretty sure it’s going to air on TV Japan someday.  Well anyway, take a look at the trailer and be amazed. Music is by Boom Boom Satellites – 「Shut up and Explode」. You can find this song in their latest album, EXPOSED

Final Fantasy XIII Officially On 360

Like I said in the past about my FFXIII going multiplatform, I guess I was correct after all. During the Microsoft Press Conference at the E3 Media and Business Summit, they showed a trailer, with the words “Cocoon – A paradise crafted by the inscrutable fal’Cie some thirteen centuries past.” Then it turned out to be a trailer for Final Fantasy XIII. At the end of this trailer, it says Final Fantasy XIII on Xbox 360 US and Europe.

With this, Final Fantasy XIII will now have a simultaneous release with the PS3 and in US and Europe, at the same time! OMG! How is this game going to look on the 360? Probably just the same as the PS3 or maybe a bit lowered graphics. Although the 360 is also getting this title, there has been no confirmation of rather Final Fantasy Versus XIII will be coming to the 360 as well. So for now, it’s a PS3 exclusive.

It’s A Trap!

I came across this while I was shopping for figures at Kidnemo…

Is it really a trap?  Or did they actually change Jun to a female for this pillow case?  Or maybe, its towards the female fans?  We’ll never know, but hell, Jun makes one hot girl.  If you’re interested in this pillow cover, you can find it at Kidnemo for $134.99.

5.2 – Simple And Clean

 

I know we just got to 5.1 but due to some reason, I got fed up with the Roundabout theme.  I guess I just don’t like the look that much.  I do like the Water 1.1 which we have been with ever since this blog has started and gone through heavy modifications by me.  Plus I really like what I can do in this theme more than Roundabout.  Roundabout had some cool stuff here and there but it was kind of hard to read I find.  Therefore, we have reverted back to Water 1.1 modded by Aria.

Header

As you have noticed our header has been changed for this update.   I used Wagaya Oinari-sama’s Kuu Tenko who is a fox spectre in the anime but can take up human form.  The grey really goes with the white background so my font color was chosen to be grey.  After I typed it out I found out that it was really blank, then it hit me that I have some vector brushes.  I was never good at vector brushes like most people so this was my first attempt.  I think it turned out rather nice.

Drop Down Menu

Ever since we have been on Roundabout we didn’t have the ability to use the drop down menu.  Everything was on the sidebar and eventually stretched the site so much that it was a pain.  That’s why I personally like this theme better.  We updated every page, created new pages and etc.  We also created a new drop down menu to replace the Dropped Series menu.  If you still can’t spot out what it got replaced by I’ll tell you.  It has been replaced by the drop down menu “Figures“.  In the past I have attempted to do something with figures but didn’t really have the camera and figures for it.  Now that I work and have the money to purchase new figures, I can finally keep up and show you guys the newest ones.

Please tell me what you think about the new figure drop down menu and it’s pages.  Check Changelog to see what has been added/updated/removed from this update.  Enjoy your stay.

5.1 with cleaner pages!

5.1 has been released.  It should of just been a minor update but whatever.  Sidebar changes are as follows, dropped series section has been completely removed.  We have moved the series that was in that section into our new page “Dropped Series” it looks exactly like Anime List page however, it contains only the series that have been dropped.  For completed series…  Well we don’t really have a lot of those so no plans have been made for that yet.  Our newest writer, xoKaileenxo wasn’t very active and have not posted anything or written anything for us since she has joined so we have moved her as a subscriber and all her pages have been removed, which is just her journal.

Next page we have removed is the writers page.  That page wasn’t very useful in any way, I suppose what we wanted to do with that page is to let readers know how many writers we have and what they are writing but since no one is writing right now we don’t really need that page.  Music Box page has also been removed.  I enjoy music as much as the next person does but hell, uploading all those music and changing the title takes a while and the program we used sucked!

Finally, with 5.1 we have wiped the Anime List page clean, and I mean squeeky shiny clean.  It won’t be a clusterfuck anymore which is good.  Before we had about 8 series sitting in there and we weren’t doing anything.  So from now, 1-2 series per person so we can actually write them properly and whatnot.

For those who actually listen and liked our podcast, we do plan on doing more but just need to find the time.  Also if we do plan on getting more podcast out, we will probably revamp it, such as no more music being played during the break.  Apparently a few people doesn’t like the music put in and stops listening to the podcast once it hits that mark.  We’ll think about what we’re gonna do and hopefully can get those podcasts out.

Until then, be sure to check the Zero no Tsukiama ~Princess no Rondo~ episode summaries I will be writing once the series is airing and subbed.
