Spring is officially here (well going by the Anime calendar)!

How can I say this?
Several of the “Winter” Animes have come to an end ready for the next crop, but which ones ended?
This is a list of the ones that I have been watching that ended (in no particular order)

  • Schwarzesmarken
  • Hai to Gensou no Grimgar (has this actually finished?
  • Dimension W
  • Mobile Suit Iron Blodded Orphans
  • Durarara (after 3 seasons)
  • God Eater (that got dragged out)
  • Luck and Logic
  • Bubuki Buranki
  • Gate: Jieitai Kanochi nite, Kaku Tatakaeri ( I hope this is just a season)
  • Heavy Object
  • Divine Gate
  • Active Raid

UPDATE 02-APRIL-2016: The following have now also finished.

  • Phantasy Star Online 2: The Animation
  • Norn 9 + Norn.
  • Ao no Kanata no Four Rhythm

  • Musaigen no Phantom World

There are some still ongoing, but the new season has some good and bad surprises.

Ghost in the Shell has a new VR Video coming out that makes use of the current gen VR apps.

Mobile Suit UC (unicorn) should have the next episode out soon (and dare I guess the next thunderbolt episode should not be to far behind)

A second series of Asterisk wars (Gakusen Toshi Asterisk)

Kabaneri of the Iron Fortress (Koutetsujou no Kabaneri) a Steampunk Style anime


Along with  more anime’s that I am yet to pick through.

Will they be any good, it is to early to tell.

Motoko Kusanagi cameo.


Look who made a cameo in an anime, A younger version of Motoko Kusanagi from Ghost in the Shell

Black Rock Shooter sticker.

New car and new mods.


I couldn’t find a supply of these so had to commission a limited run.

The printer wasn’t happy but I love it and it passes the standoff test.

Why this game?
Since I first discovered BRS I have loved it have and have been playing the US version of the game on/off for 6 months. (the bike level sucks)

I do have the Japanese import on PSP classic (4001) but found it to fast for me to read and understand.

Summer 2015 New anime’s.

Looks like some interesting releases for the summer.

Gatchamn Crowds and Miss Monochrome have returned for a second season while the following “New” series start.

Ranpo Kitan: Game of Laplace – Too early to tell how this will fit but looks interesting.
The story takes place at a certain middle school where several murder cases take place. Kobayashi, a boy who goes to this school, meets genius detective Akechi, who comes to the school to investigate. Kobayashi takes an interest in Akechi and, in spite of his friend Hashiba’s worries, he volunteers to be Akechi’s assistant.

In the city of Ergastulum, a shady ville filled with made men and petty thieves, whores on the make and cops on the take, there are some deeds too dirty for even its jaded inhabitants to touch. Enter the “Handymen,” Nic and Worick, who take care of the jobs no one else will handle. Until the day when a cop they know on the force requests their help in taking down a new gang muscling in on the territory of a top Mafia family. It seems like business (and mayhem) as usual, but the Handymen are about to find that this job is a lot more than they bargained for.

Gate: Jieitai Kanochi nite, Kaku Tatakaeri
In August of 20XX, a portal to a parallel world, known as the “Gate,” suddenly appeared in Ginza, Tokyo. Monsters and troops poured out of the portal, turning the shopping district into a bloody inferno. The Japan Ground-Self Defence Force immediately took action and pushed the fantasy creatures back to the “Gate.” To facilitate negotiations and prepare for future fights, the JGSDF dispatched the Third Reconnaissance Team to the “Special Region” at the other side of the Gate. Youji Itami, a JSDF officer as well as a 33-year-old otaku, was appointed as the leader of the Team. Amid attacks from enemy troops the team visited a variety of places and learnt a lot about the local culture and geography. Thanks to their efforts in humanitarian relief, although with some difficulties they were gradually able to reach out to the locals. They even had a cute elf, a sorceress and a demigoddess in their circle of new friends. On the other hand, the major powers outside the Gate such as the United States, China, and Russia were extremely interested in the abundant resources available in the Special Region. They began to exert diplomatic pressure over Japan. A suddenly appearing portal to an unknown world—to the major powers it may be no more than a mere asset for toppling the international order. But to our protagonists it is an invaluable opportunity to broaden knowledge, friendship, and ultimately their perspective towards the world

Classroom Crisis
With aims to one day reach out into the stars, humanity has colonized all the planets of the solar system. This story of young high school hopefuls is set in Fourth Tokyo in a Japanese Martian prefecture. Iris Shirasaki is a third year student/aspiring test pilot. Mizuki Sera is her peer/mechanic and Mizuki’s brother Kaito is their homeroom teacher and the young director of the program developing their talents.

Triage X seamed to end unfinished.
Fate/Stay Night looks to have finished.
KInghts of Sidonia (Sidonia no Kishi: Daikyuu Wakusei Seneki) looks to have finished.

OK call me distracted. While looking for Gunpla parts to 3d print I came across this

Neo Zeon 3D Printed Tripod.

Colour me Impressed, Wish I had the artistic skill for this!

News has hit me of a new online Ghost in the shell game but guess what, if you don’t use Windows then your can’t play (well there are ways around it but thats not the point.

Its the same shit everytime, they think that everyone only use windows and nothing else exist. Someone need to beat sense into these game makers and force them to build OS X clients.

BLOG: 53rd Shizuoka Hobby Show – Gundam Build Fighters.


Some interesting things here but right at the bottom of the page ….

A second series of Gundam Build Fighters?

Better get my AG2 Vector and Talgeese MKIIIB finished.

Gunpla Loot!

So spent the weekend down in London for the Chinese and had to pleasure to pay a visit to Tokyo toys and the Japan centre for a bit of shopping. While not having much of a budget I did make a few purchases. What I picked up was

Dengeki Hobby Jan 2013 (Cosmic falcon episode)

G Generation SD Wing Zero custom

Gundam Age AG Spallow and Titus

Gundam Age 3 AG Fortess.

That leaves me just Age 2 Double bullet, Age 3 Orbit and Dark Hound to complete the main lineup.

I need to start putting stuff on ebay as I’m running out of space  but before I go I have to let you know that there is another 3 shops hiding in soho (London) that also sell Gunpla and Nendoroid/Figma figures!

Good night all.


A new blog

In order to keep my Steampunk away from my main blog (Including my writing in steampunk) I have replaced my other blog.

Hopefully I will remember to update both at least once a week!

So what’s going on then?

Bleach series 9 is now out in the UK!

Girls und Panzer seams to have finished for this season! but there’s an OVA out.

Psyco pass seams to have finished for this season.

Code Brakers has finished.

Accel world is showing short OVA’s and is now up to 6

Still waiting for Appleseed XIII ! there are now 3 Parts to it and not a single part in the UK yet!

And stil no sign of Evangelion 3.3!

Sword Art online Finally finished ????????

Well after 25 episodes Sword Art Online (SAO) is finally over….. Or is it?
SAO and some will know covered two story blocks, SAO and Alfheim and what an ending, everyone is free, and the online world is rebuilt with the return of the Aincrad floating castle. but that is not the end of the story.

According to Wiki:
there are two more story blocks to come GunGale Online and Underworld.

If we get to see the anime versions of these blocks it will be sweet but for those not paying attention, the writer of SAO is the same as Accel World and there have been a few references to SAO in Accel World to suggest that it may be a prequel to Accel world.

I can’t wait for a continuation of the story line but we will have to wait to next year to find out.

Here’s a thank you to all though who did the fan subs that allows us not Japanese to watch all over the world.
