Japanese TV ads

12 Feb

All about Japanese TV ads. The good, the bad and the I-don’t-know-what-happened. The one thing I like about Japanese commercials is … well , how bizarre they can be. While I’ve been in the advertising industry all my life (well, since I graduate that is) I try to link it back to the theories my professors have enlightened me with. But I guess sometimes, even the most culturally sensitive neurotransmitter in me has to acknowledge that Japanese commercials simply refutes all common senses.

Strike Witches OP – Re-make

10 Aug

Slice Cheese (Strike Witches Opening – Limited Edition)

I’ve been watching Strike Witches and find the OP song (Watashi ni Dekiru Koto by Ishida Youko) a “power-up” especially at the start of a school/work day. Did some curious runs through YouTube and found this sliced cheese made from a string of over 2000 shots, in just 12 days! Loved the way the “Slice Cheese” pun was added into the scene at the time stamp of 0.27 and the Gundam fight scenes are  just way too smooth! Comes with gunfire and smoke!.

I tried to do something like this with Evangelion’s OP on Flash some many years back but it turned out to be a total failure. This 3D version is way cooler!

 
 

Tokyo Life – Part 2

27 Jul

You know it’s Summer here in Tokyo when suddenly the whole state’s super hyped up about festivals. Japan itself boosts quite a number of festivals yearly and the heat of summer ain’t gonna stop the locals from some sort of celebration.

I was blessed enough to attend a few of these festivals and experience some traditional local culture in my short weeks here.

Phase Impulse MG Edition

Bandai Hobby created this pretty cool site to host this awesome Phase Impulse MG Edition video to entice purchases. They’ll show you loads of cool pix and make you drool but its only download-able FOC to buyers from May 24th – August 31 2008 in Japan. But some kind soul has decided to share the wonder and thus the saying. . .”Good Things MUST Share!”

Okok I know its corny. -.-!Just Enjoy

 
 

Final Fantasy Vs Dead or Alive 2

28 Mar

It’s better if you watch Part One before you click on the big play arrow.

Part two of Dead Fantasy (actually that’s the name of the video) is finally out! Back in October last year we’ve posted about this orsum video by Monty Oum that literally gave me a whopping jaw drop and ripped my eyes out with its mind blowing render of action kicks. It was revealed that there would be 5 episodes altogether Ψ(`∇´)Ψ. While part one ended with a cliff hanger when Tifa came to the rescue, part two had that FF chick in sizzling bicycle hot pants’ make an appearance (and a face) too! Didn’t know her to be erm that powerful though. As usual, no scratch, no messy hair & no friction on their shoes! Makes me wanna be a game babe too! Well anyway, let’s just cut to the chase and click away cos part two is just equally exaggerating! (-.-)!

Street Fighter IV

Ok this has been sitting in my drafts for the longest time and the high quality video that Mervyn so kind heartedly, encoded has became sorta stale by the time I got to hitting the “Publish” button. Anyhow da new arcade game indeed brings back tonnes of memories. I remember spending after school hours at the arcade just busy whacking buttons and I was so head over heels in lurve with *my hubby Akuma and his super Blackout special. (Oooh I hope he’s back!).

The Many Faces of Final Fantasy XIII

14 Feb

 

Sitting under the umbrella ella ella ella (sorry I JUST had to do that in “tribute” to Rihanna) are the three titles – FFXIII, FF Versus XIII, and FF Agito XIII. The former two for the PS3 platform & the latter for mobile phones. So I reckon there’s no more budget left for the PSP *cry*

Devil May Cry 4

09 Feb

For those who haven’t heard, Dante’s back to kick some ass and level up in the Public Relations department after a much disappointing anime (in my most humble opinion). Anyway the opening sequence’s quite an earful. I like its cinematic effects though I’m not exactly a big fan of opera :3

Moe moe OS-tans

03 Feb

[youtube=http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-vKzbNGfjkI]

Another reason why I simply lurve Japan! The cho kawaii 美媚 (prounce mei mei, which is a Chinese slang for moe imouto chans) greeting you from your desktop is really an OS-tan. Apparently, these originated from the Futaba Channel – one of Japan’s most popular internet forum that deals in otaku culture; and competitor to 2Channel.

Death Note 3 – L Change the WorLd

death-note-movie-3-01.jpg

Finally the long awaited 3rd movie of the Death Note series is coming out next February in Japan . It depicts the last 23 days of L’s life. Oh please don’t let him die! He’s too cute to die!

Check out the very nice trailer! I admit I haven’t been following the manga or the anime thoroughly enough but it looks like there’s a new girl now and I wonder if there’s going to be a new Shinigami!

Bokurano’s OP by Hatsune Miku

18 Nov

Image of Hatsune Miku

I’ve heard this song before. I was searching for and watching Hatsune Miku videos on YouTube. It didn’t occur to me then, that it’s the same song in the anime Bokurano‘s OP. I thought it was one of the best works by her even though it sounded kinda odd the way she goes, “aniso, aniso…”. I wish I could say, “More moe images of Hatsune Miku after the break”, but it’s gonna be, “Hear her in the video after the break”. ヽ(;´д`)ノ

High quality YouTube videos

27 Oct

YouTube Logo

There’s been an ever growing popularity of video-sharing over the Internet , especially apparent when YouTube recently hosted YouTube Mix – a party just to thank users who generated the most viewed content for YouTube Japan.

But unfortunately for some, there has also been a slew of extremely compressed ones so much so that you only see blotches of blur and are barely able to make details out. Where’s the kick in that?
