Darker Than Black Ryuusei no Gemini

At last.. Season two of Darker Than Black finished it episode at 12..

this time, Darker Than Black focused on one storyline. It's about Izanagi and Izanami..
Still don't know what happened with Yin in the transition between season one and season two, but I think the OVA will tell us about it much..
the story is told from Suou perspective, at first is an ordinary girl which later turn out to be a contractor.. Together with Hei, she solved her own problems..

- Supernatural anime theme
- Good storyline (but the ending isn't satisfying)
- In must watch category

New MG!

Exciting news from Bandai..
the new Astray Red Frame Kai MG featured a new tactical arms which can be transformed into tactical bow.. really awesome (a bit disappointed though, why should use another tactical arms?), also two katanas.

I think this time they will include another action base for tactical arms support. for 5250 Yen, I think this is a good choice for me.. especially I already have the Astray Blue Frame 2nd Revise. Maybe after this we can see a new MG Gold Frame.

Another MG that is a must have for us is MG GN-X
after saw it in full color I think I might get it also with MG Exia (Still didn't get it because of delivery problem and actually want to cancel it because of Red Frame, but after saw GN-X maybe I will still accept it ^^;)

MG GN-X with it's multipurpose riffle.. awesome isn't it?

Pre X'mas Loot 2009

Here is my pre x'mas loot for 2009..

- MG Sinanju Ver Ka.
- MG Blue Frame Astray 2nd Revise
- PS3 Slim 120GB
- a HDMI cable (Not mentioned in the picture)
- Valkyria Chronicles PS3 Bluray Disc (Not mentioned in the picture)

I choose MG Sinanju Ver Ka because of Sinanju design and I'm a huge fan of Katoki design.. While I choose Blue Frame because of it's design's originality (astray's design) and it's backpack (of course the multipurpose tactical arms II) for my last gunpla loot. Actually I still have 1 want list left, it's MG Exia, but wonder if I should buy it or not right now (because of MG Red Frame and the next Unicorn sp pack ver --> still wait n see for this MG) While I choose PS3 because of recent RPG games really shift from XBox360 to PS3.. (Star Ocean 4, Tales of Versperia, etc), for my 1st game I pick Valkyria Chronicles, really enjoyed it :3

After released MG Blue Frame now Bandai go with MG Red Frame Kai (5250 Yen).. Really want to know more about it.. Also the new MG Unicorn ver OVA (5250 Yen) and it's SP Pack ver (Around 7000 Yen). Do they have a better articulation than the Ver Ka ones?

Mana Khemia 2

Here is my last game for PS2 before changing console to either PS3 or XBox360 (haven't decided it yet)

Mana Khemia 2

This is a great 2D RPG from GUST, the story is around students at an alchemist school (Al-Revis Academy). This time they include 2 different perspectives of storyline.. one is from the perspective of Rozeluxe Meitzen and the other is from Ulrika Myberg.

Things that I like about this game are:
- Beautiful CG all over the game
- A 2D hardcore battle system (lots of chain and damages, also co-op attack and finishing strikes)
- Alchemy sistem (though it pain at the first because of the lack of ingredients, but not in late game)
- Fresh inside joke (a lot of funny scene there ^^;)

Of course I hate their side quest job which we should make an item with different ether level or hunt monster (but fortunately they are optionals).
This game is really unique in a lot of ways. I'm currently at Ulrika storyline after finishing the Raze storyline. Really enjoyed playing this game.. I hope there will be Mana Khemia 3 and so on.

Wish list for the next game:
1. Retain the CG graphic at the battle system (wow.. that would be awesome..)
2. Retain the battle system (of course with additional improvement)
3. Changing the Item, Alchemy recipes, Enemies (don't use the same enemies all over the time.. it's booriingg!!)
4. Remain 2D (with a better quality of course)
5. Japanese voice acting with English subtitles (this is really a plus for me.. :3)

Story : 6/10 (main story is rather dull)
Graphic : 8/10 (especially the CG)
Soundtrack : 7/10 (not bad..)
Battle system : 9/10 (very intense)
Gameplay : 5/10 (alchemy system is good but it's very repetitive)
Overall : 7 (it's a good game, I really enjoy playing this game)
