If it seems like I haven’t been updating a lot recently, well, I haven’t.  Sadly, summer is drawing to a close and the more difficult of my summer assignments are catching up to me.  What free time I do have I spend playing video games.  I’ve been playing Curious Village since Diabolical Box was recently released.  In addition, my friends and readers, I’ve been playing Dissidia.  Dissidia FINAL FANTASY.  So what’s the big deal, you ask?  Well, the big deal, I say, is that Dissidia is really…different.

Not so Serious

Yay for random news.  I missed reading School Rumble, but now I can watch it :]

Don’t Worry, Multiple-Year Hiatus are “In” These Days

Posted by Niki K. F. on August 17, 2009

Here’s an interesting story.  After four years (that’s twice the amount of time we’ve had to wait for some American publishers to continue publishing certain series) Higuri You will continue her manga Cantarella.

cantarella 10Those of you who enjoyed it will probably have a while to wait before you read it, though, because Higuri’s starting it back up in the Princess Gold magazine next month, and the last volume to be released in America was out in March 08, so even if Go Comi! decides to keep publishing it, it will take some time before the next volume is released.

Aren’t you glad we live in America?  We got our last volume but a year ago, while Japan’s had to wait FOUR YEARS.  Release-date lag sure is helpful sometimes.  Although I honestly preffer her yaoi titles over this one.  Too much drama.

BlazBlue Art Book for Sale on Aksys Official Site

Posted by Niki K. F. on August 13, 2009

I couldn’t really think up a witty title for this news because it’s just too good to be true:  the highly sought-after art book of BlazBlue is now for sale on Aksys’ Website.

blazeblue art book

The art book was only available to those who pre-ordered the fighter from Gamestop.com—you didn’t even get it if you pre-ordered in the stores!  And since the art book was produced in such low numbers, even some of those who did pre-order online didn’t get their own.  On eBay, the bidding for an art book easily surpassed $40, $50, and even $60.  So if you missed out on on the art book and want one, or even if you’re just hearing about BlazBlue now, then you HAVE to go buy it now for ONLY $15—that’s including the shipping already!! (unless you’re one of those who’s just hearing about BlazBlue now, in which you should buy the art book and then go buy BlazBlue)

The adorable clear file is still on sale, and I love mine.  The tote bag is also still for sale, although I honestly think it’s a bit too expensive.

Along with the art book, Aksys has put an ADORABLE shirt for sale, featuring Ragna being stomped by Hakumen, and the input command for the attack, in case you were ever to forget it.  The site warns that the shirt doesn’t work when viewed in a mirror.  Again, I think it’s a bit pricey, but you have to agree with me when I say that it’s one of the cutest things ever.

HGSS Character Guide Part 2

Posted by Niki K. F. on August 11, 2009

The “Good Guys” section of the HGSS website has been filled out.  While I’m kind of disappointed, at least we have the “Bad Guys” to look forward to.  Read on to see which characters made the cut in the games.

Both regions are accesible in HGSS, just as they were in GSC.
