I read from Kotaku that there's this 9-year-old girl who was attacked by a dog because the latter heard barking from the girl's DS as she was playing Nintendogs.
Her lower lip was bitten off by the dog, which turned out to be a bull mastiff (I super want one!).
Then this is what grandma says: "People should be told not to play it when there are dogs in the room. I blame the game for what happened to Megan. If they hadn't been playing it I don't think the dog would have gone for her."
Seriously. I played Nintendogs one too many times in the presence of all 7 dogs that I have. IN FULL VOLUME. AND MY DOGS CAN HEAR THE BARKING.
And what do they do?
Their ears perk up. Then they approach me. Then they deduce that the sound is coming from this little blue thing that I'm holding in my hands. They smell the DS. They hear the bark again. THEY LEAVE. They don't attack me, and mind you, none of my dogs went to obedience school.
Anyway, the dog, named Saracen, has been put down T_T and her owner says that the girl "..may have kicked Saracen, provoking the attack." And yes, that's what I think too.
This is the best Mai Shiranui figure that I've ever seen...until the one from Volks came out. That takes the cake, but MaxFac's Mai shouldn't be set aside. I still think it's a good rendition of her and all.
One person used to tell me that this Mai isn't really how Mai should look like. He kept saying that she's too...anime-y. That's true in some ways, yes, but not in a bad way, IMO, so I got rid of the person and deleted him from my Facebook friends' list since that's the extent of human relations these days. But I digress...
The whopping 1/6 scale means there's more bewbs and more arse. Clearly, ever-so-clearly, defined curves is what this Mai Shiranui has. Ginormous. So much so that my mom called my figure lewd. Could it be the details? Perhaps. The sculpt is good, but since Mai Shiranui doesn't have that much intricacies in her clothes (or the lack of it for that matter), I can't really say that the sculpt is highly detailed as compared to my other figures that can just take your breath away.
She's a simple figure, yes, but definitely worth the money you'll pay for (if in case you manage to find her).
Well, I guess it's pretty evident in how I write my so-called figure review that I'm not really in the right mindset to describe Mai. Probably because the pictures speak for themselves.
Oh shots are taken by my dad, part of that rainy-day-we-are-bored sets. Okay, so you see those bewbs? They're insanely huge, demmit.
Weee~ Here are the new Pokemon we'll be seeing when Pokemon White and Black are released! All 156 of them!
Can't wait to get my hands on both the White and Black. Can't wait to catch some of the uber cute Pokemon I see <3 But... I have to finish playing Heart Gold and Soul Silver first. Not to mention the Shadows of Almia that I'm currently playing ;_;
If there are 2 words that would sum up my description of Morrigan, it has to be: HUGE WINGS. Her wingspan makes her consume space like there's no tomorrow, really.
I got my Morrigan for half the SRP like..3 or 4 years ago. I really found her to be very pretty back when I played Capcom games. So much so that I always used her as my character.
Yamato's rendition of Morrigan isn't so bad, actually. The face is well-sculpted, her body is well-sculpted, and the paint job is pretty good. Only, there are times when I'd look at her and think that they could've made her head a tad bigger. Then again, it's probably her bewbs making her head too small. Eye tricks.
When I got my Morrigan, I found that one of the talons of her wings was broken (which in hindsight probably constituted to the discounted price) and worse, LOST. Yes, I couldn't find the broken talon anywhere. Fortunately, one of my friends from OtaKai was good at these things and he told me he'll fix up Morrigan's wing. Free of charge! (I persuaded him somehow to let me pay for the bottle of paint that he used at the very least.)
Another year older, none the wiser. Turned XX yesterday, September 12. It was a quiet day, boyfriend came over and brought 2 cakes: one for us humans, and one for the dogs. He also gave me a bouquet of roses...can't remember the last time I got those (not too fond of flowers). Sweet thing, he is :3 Dinner with the family and there. Nothing eventful.
Birthday hauls will be coming next week, Saturday.
As far as birthdays go, I've always wanted a really extravagant cake. Something that I would feel both good and bad about eating. So I talked to my friend Google and he showed me a bunch of cakes that I'll be hinting to the boyfriend and parents and sister for next year~
Han Solo in Carbonite Block
Super Mario Galaxy
Man.. Seeing those makes me want to have some cake right now.
Yeah, I'll prolly get some cake now and post the rest of the rainy day photoshoot later XD
Despite my dislike for short-haired figures, I got GSC's Human Mage from Lineage II. Now, I've never played the Lineage franchise, but I liked her the moment I saw that she was on pre-order at Wasabi Toys. I didn't get her on the first batch though. I regretted that decision terribly, but Wasabi Toys never failed me, and they offered her for pre-order again. The rest is history~
What I like most about her are her face sculpt and armor. She's absolutely pretty, up close and I hate to admit it, but her short hair suits her well. The way GSC sculpted Human Mage's hair is nothing to spectacular though. I think it looks too...plastic. Kinda reminds me of Ken's (Barbie's boyfriend) hair.
No complaints about her armor. None at all. The intricate details, the overall design.. they're just lovely. I don't mind the colors either, despite them being on the "earthy" side. Her weapon's a staff with a purple faux plastic jewel perched on top. I dunno if I just lack the skills, but when I first got her, I had quite the time trying to put the staff in place. I got the skills now.
Oh and she has a cast-off feature too. Her armor can be removed. Although her upper torso, with the wonderfully sculpted abs, features a pair of bewbs all too similar to a Barbie doll's bewbs.
Anyway, I just finished watching the pre-airing episode of Hyakka Ryoran, or Samurai Girls, which is due to officially start airing on October.
The story seems promising enough to watch out for it as much as I'm updated with Sengoku Basara. Nothing corny (yet!) or cliche, I guess this take on Japanese alternate history - as fictitious as it may be - is appealing to me.
Then there's the animation. I found it superb. I like how they made it seem like I'm watching one of those ukiyo-e come to life. I just found it a bit off, using ink blots to censor bewbs and privates, as there would be a blot or two that looks lost somewhere there.
Also, the thick outlines that they used on the characters especially are good. The animation kinda reminded me of Type/Moon anime for some reason, only better.
I'm hoping that the quality of animation that they used in this pre-airing episode does not degrade when the official anime starts airing.
Seriously, I can officially start hating Hattori Hanzo now. I know I spent like Php5,700 (roughly Y11,400) on her figure - regular release - but that's because I want to complete the whole Hyakka Ryoran line. I started disliking her coz she wears glasses, but her character in the movie in general just makes me hate her lol.
