Funimation suspended the release of Dragon Ball Z in Blu-Ray

Due to technical difficulties in restoring the original Dragon Ball Z series frame by frame, Funimation has announced that the release of the Level 2.1 disc has been put in indefinite hiatus and it won't be released in the indicated date, March 27.

"We are unable to continue these releases by way of this process.” FUNimation expects to research more practical and commercially viable means of remastering the Dragon Ball Z anime for future Blu-ray releases.

It's best for them to take their time.

Smile Precure episode preview!

The series premieres on February 5, replacing the Suite Precure series that aired in Tv Asahi.



Really looking forward to this from the quality, it's been quite some time since we've seen a new magical girl anime.

In the story, Miyuki (Misato Fukuen) starts her first day at as a junior high school student when a book with a mysterious creature named Candy (Ikue Ohtani) falls out of the sky. Candy soon disappears, but the girl's adventure takes off when she visits the library room after school. Miyuki absorbs light from a glowing book and gets transported to a magical world like those in her favorite fairy tale stories.

Sakamichi no Apollon trailer, premieres in April




Cowboy Bebop director Shinichiro Watanabe is helming the anime adaptation of Yuki Kodama’s drama manga Sakamichi no Apollon.

The April Noitamina series tells the story of an introverted intellectual high school boy in the 1960s who finds common ground through jazz music with his new school’s female class president and a delinquent boy.

The manga was the winner of the “Best General Manga” category in this year’s prestigious Shogakukan Manga Awards.

The anime from studio MAPPA/Tezuka Productions is an all-star production reuniting director Watanabe with Cowboy Bebop music composer Yoko Kanno.

Nobuteru Yuki (Escaflowne, Paradise Kiss) provides character design. Ayako Katoh (Chihayafuru) & Yuuko Kakihara (Persona 4 the Animation) are co-writing the scripts.

Yoshimitsu Yamashita (Hyoge Mono) is serving as animation director. Shinichiro Watanabe hasn’t directed a full anime production since helming his “Baby Blue” segment of the 2007 anthology film Genius Party.

Weekend's cosplay photos

During last weekend I tried to ease my depression by taking some cosplay photos... it actually works; I won't be telling any details about said depression but yeah, I think I got some pretty okay photos of my Jushiro Ukitake and Sojun Kuchiki costumes... both from the series Bleach. I will post a few photos here and if interested the rest can be found at my cosplay.com account, there's a link to it in my blog at "Other sites you can find me at".


Jushiro Ukitake


Weird angles wuhuuu! No but really, normally my face ends up looking ridiculous in more extreme angles but this one was kinda cool. Besides it shows off my tsukamaki (read: handle wrapping) really well. I should have taken more outside photos but the sun set so fast it became too dark... *shrugs*


 

Jushiro Ukitake, Captain of the 13th Division... aka Captain Tuberculosis by fans of the series/him. Yeah, he occasionally coughs up blood... end of story. Love him anyway, he is so gentle and the kindest captain of them all. *coughnottomentionthemosthandomecough*


Sojun Kuchiki


Yay Sojun! Yay proper photos! Kind of. Okay, so this time I tried slightly different make-up (lol I suck at it) than what I do for Ukitake because at those WIP photos I just thought I somehow looked like Ukitake trying to look like someone else. Faaaaaaail. :I I've cosplayed Ukitake so much I see myself doing his expressions all the time... OTL Oh well, doing my eyebrows a bit differently and using a little eye-liner seemed to do the trick.

Sojun Kuchiki, late Lieutenant of Division 6.
The Kuchikis are one of the four great noble families in Soul Society and even though he smiled more than his son Byakuya Kuchiki, at least according to that only official reference (yes, he is so obscure I wonder if I'm the first person outside Japan to cosplay him...) picture there is of him: ref.
Oh well, about this photo, he is a Kuchiki after all... and we all know that a Kuchiki needs to do the I'm-better-than-you face at least once.. hey, they are nobles after all! xD 

Presentación nuevo cosplay: Cammy (Street Fighter)

Hi! mañana tengo la última clase y tendré 2 semanas de libertad absoluta la cual utilizaré para avanzar a tope con los cosplays :D (llevo más de un mes sin hacer nada =_=, caca Uni)

En 2 semanitas será la Japan Weekend de Madrid, y como ya dije voy a ir de Nia Teppelin (adulta) junto con mi Simoncete (Yurio), y para el segundo día me compré las telas para hacerme un cosplay (secreto), pero me parece algo complicado de hacer en 2 semanas, así que queda aplazado para más adelante. Quería un cosplay fácil para el segundo día y no quería repetir ninguno de los que tengo, así que pregunté y pregunté y al final me animé a ir de Cammy del Street Fighter



Desde hace mucho tiempo Hizumi me insistió para que me lo hiciera, la verdad es que primero decía que no por el mismo motivo que Wonder Woman, tetazas y cuerpo musculado.. pero oye.. si he ido de WW por qué no de Cammy? 

Uno de los requisitos que buscaba era tener la peluca, ya que en 2 semanas no puedo conseguir una.. y resulta que tengo la peluca perfecta xD la de Flonne


Foto con mi amor Mina =)


Ya tengo hechas las trenzas y todo *3* me tocará arreglar un poco el flequillo y listo :)

Me haré la versión azul que es un poco más tapada, me voy a morir de frío igualmente pero se agradece tener mangas xD




Estoy super hypeada con la elección de este traje, aparte no recordaba que mi gran amor Mina tiene su coss de Chun Li y se me orcurren muchas maldades para el día que hagamos sesión de fotos de P&S, que por cierto si todo va bien será el finde de la semana que viene :')




Y bueno, ya se que la elección de este traje hará que resurjan las típicas críticas de que siempre voy enseñando cacha, pero oye, se siente xD

En fin, estoy super contenta me están pasando demasiadas cosas buenas, gano lo del concurso de hobby, saco unas notazas en la uni, todo va genial.. tengo miedo.. pronto empezarán las cosas malas seguro T^T

Bueno para terminar decir que mañana por la tarde será el día más pobre de mi vida xD voy a aprovechar que estamos de rebajas para comprar las telas de: ECG (ruina ++), SuperGirl y Cammy.

Y todo hasta aquí, en cuanto recupere la cámara podré hacerle fotos a los procesos que estoy haciendo ='), y referente al diseño del blog lo voy a dejar así, tengo que arreglar el banner que está hecho en un plis, lo tengo que poner más bien hecho xD

Un beso!
Cyaa~~

Hi! me acabo de enterar hace muy poco ratito de esto y no he podido evitar compartirlo con todos vosotros =D

En diciembre me enteré que Hobby estaba haciendo un concurso para encontrar el MAYOR FAN DE ZELDA, los premios eran la mar de suculentos así que decidí probar, se lo comenté a Yurio, y los 2 mandamos fotos de nuestros trajes.
Hoy ha salido la revista del mes de febrero y en esta sale la foto y el nombre de los ganadores, me ha hecho muchísima ilusión que nos hayan escogido a los 2 =). aunque tanto él como yo ya tenemos la wii, el premio hace ilusión igualmente :).


El premio consta de: Wii + Edición Limitada de Zelda Skyward Sword (+ Mario Kart Wii y volante)


Dejo aquí las fotos (aunque no se ve nada xD viva mi móvil -o-)






Perdonad la calidad de las fotos.. no tengo la cámara en casa y lo he tenido que hacer con mi super móvil última generación -o-


En fin, mañana entrego el último trabajo y seré libre como el mar~~ por la tarde iré a por todas las telas que necesito para los próximos cosplays y este finde a celebrar mi cumpleaños!

:D! un besooo
Cyaaa~~~~

One Piece: Kaizoku Musou PV2


Recently "One Piece: Kaizoku Musou" on the official release of the second promotional video (PV2), the game could be a collection of animated versions of the entire story. One Piece's fans may wanna play it urgently, the game will released in March 1, 2012 in Japan for PlayStation 3.

Kenseikan

Yeah, said to myself I would finish them before this weekend earlier and today I got the thumb out from my ass and made them. It didn't take so long actually and was pretty easy to make. Here's some in progress photos (excuse me for bad lighting..) and short descriptions.

 

First I just took these hard paper (poster board?) whatever and cut out pieces that seemed an okay size. I cut out two similar so I could layer them over one another for strenght. I also marked the middle...



Then I just bent the middle to get that V-shape. After that I glued them on top of each other and proceeded to repeat the steps and make one kenseikan more...


When I had both kenseikan pieces cut out and glued together I just used duct tape in the inside to get the two separate pieces to be one whole...


Then I glued some scrap pieces to the ends to create some dimension.
And when I was done I went and took some WIP photos of one of my coming cosplays because now it's done. Yes, done. The kenseikan was pretty much the only thing I needed for it. XD Mhmm lazy budget cosplaying, I had everything else already.


derp
I'm herpderpin' around. lol I need white pins to hold kenseikan in place, black ones are too visible I think... and no, IT'S NOT BYAKUYA. It's Byakuya's dad, Sojun. Aww yeah, obscure character from a popular show. <3 There's only like... one official artwork of him and it's only showing his face from the front, heheh the rest is up to my imagination, woo. I will debut this cosplay during the summer first so yeah, I finished early. Although I need to test character make-up...

Cambiando un poco la apariencia del blog

Durante estos días iré cambiando un poco la apariencia del blog, lo digo por si entráis y veis cosas raras x_x

Os quiere! Wonder Woman *3*






Level E anime review

It's been a year since this anime premiered in TV Tokyo, barely having 13 episodes. The OP song was the catchy 'Cold Finger Girl' by Chiaki Kuriyama.



One of the reasons the anime was so short is because the author Yoshihiro Togashi couldn't finish the manga, which marked a humorous change of pace from Yu Yu Hakusho and Hunter x Hunter. However, this 1995 manga ran up to 3 volumes (16 chapters).

The plot of the series is hysterical, with non-conventional storytelling at best. It would seem that it follows the format of being about nothing, but we are immersed in the world of the characters.

The premise is based on the fact that Earth has been populated by thousands of aliens from all over the galaxy, but it is a well kept secret from Earthlings, as it would cause massive panic and it would disrupt the intergalactic balance.

The story begings with Yukitaka Tsutsui, a college baseball player who freaks out after a blonde long haired guy just randomly moved into his appartment. The government is looking for him and after a persecution, he reveals his alien powers after being saved by Yukitaka.

Miho Edogawa is the next door girl and was also a witness, as her father is a researcher who works for the government in the research of alien species.

It turns out that the Prince escaped from his bodyguards so he could do whatever he wanted, thus we get to know Captain Kraft, easily the best character from the series, a loyal yet neurotic servant almost driven to the point of schizophrenia by the Prince's extremely convoluted jokes that set everyone off. All the hysteria and hilarious moments come from there.

Captain Kraft
Prince Baka has one of the highest IQ in the galaxy and he simply likes to torment those around him for the sake of it. This is reflected in each episode with incoherence after incoherence which makes the series to not be formulaic. I would say that it is closer to Gintama, but much more irreverent in the sense that it doesn't really establish a continuity or a routine.

Maybe that's also the reason the story wouldn't go much further, it's hard to maintain that pace and not make it tiring. But it's a damn great experimental effort.

I highly recommend this series for the laughs and if you're bored and want to watch something different and amusing.


Phi Brain: Kami no Puzzle gets a second season!

Sunrise Studios just announced that this original anime series will have a second season that will premiere on April 8. This is no surprise as it has been well received and one of the best series of 2011.

In this upcoming second season, the story continues to revolve around the Orpheus bangle and Phi Brain, but the puzzle battles heat up.

A new enemy, a group of boys named Orpheus Order, appears before Kaito and the others, and the battles begin anew.


Locke the Superman film will be distributed in North America

WOW, a classic.

North American video distributor Discotek Media revealed on Thursday that it will release the 1984 anime film Locke the Superman.

The anime was a former Central Park Media license. Director Hiroshi Fukutomi (Battle Angel, Those Who Hunt Elves 2) adapted Yuki Hijiri's original manga of the same name about a quiet, seemingly ageless loner with breathtaking psychic powers. In the story, the military seek him out to deal with a woman who is raising an army of psychics.

The film spawned a series of original video anime sequels, and the original manga itself continues to this day.

Zelda - armas -

Hi! wiii! casi casi soy libre~~ me queda entregar un trabajito más y por fin podré tocarme libremente la pampa xD 
En fin.. voy a enseñaros lo último que me queda del cosplay de Zelda, las armas, la verdad es que no tenía muy claro si subir esto, porqué sinceramente son una basura, hechas en una semana, rápido y fatal =(, pero el lema era: como solo se verán unos segundos no te mates xD haz mejor el traje.. 
Así que no subo esto en mode tutorial, porqué el resultado es pésimo >_<
Aunque gracias a estos grandes fails, ahora para la próxima vez sabré hacerlo mucho mejor, y espero que con más tiempo xD

En fin.. empecemos ya xD
Lo que tenía que hacer era el arco de Zelda


pongo la foto de lado para que se vea mejor xD


Y la espada



Empecé haciendo las plantillas


Qué zapatillas más bonitas tengo xDDDDD

Y después con madera hice la base, la madera que cogí era una basura.. pero era lo único que tenía en casa xD


la madera que tenía era de unos armarios viejos xD




Mi padre super cañero xDD

Después me dediqué a lijar todo, tanto el arco como la espada, aunque como la madera era malísima no quedaba muy bien -_-U, en cuanto lo tuve lijado empecé con el poliuretano




pintas caseras xD

Se secó durante una noche y al día siguiente pude ponerme a cortar con el cúter, la verdad es que tardé muchísimo.. el poliuretano era muy bueno y se expandió lo nunca visto xD





Fui cortando... cortando.. cortando.. no se acababa nunca... xD mi comedor cada vez estaba peor.. llegué a tener poliuretano dentro de mi cama xD mi compañera de piso casi me mata (l) xD me corté y me hice mucho daño... xDD

En fin.. cuando tuve la medida que más o menos quería (ya desde el principio no me gustó nada como quedaba.. pero como no había tiempo tiré hacia adelante -_-) seguí el método que hace Kamui

Paso a paso:

1. Base de algo, yo la hice de madera poco pesada
2. Poliuretano
3. Se cubre la parte que han quedado con agujeritos con cinta de pintor
4. Se le da una capa de papel maché
5. Se cubre con masilla rara :S


Aquí el poliuretano casi terminado


Ahora viene el paso 3, el poliuretano muchas veces quedan unos agujeros enormes, para cubrirlos le pongo cinta de pintor y queda más o menos así



Y seguidamente para que quede liso y bonito se le da una capa o 2 de papel maché, doy las gracias desde aquí a Sara (mi compi de piso) que me vio desesperada y me ayudó un poquito T^T




Después se deja secar bien y queda todo durito y mono =3, solo pongo fotos del arco pero todo esto igual con la espada >.<

Seguidamente le di con la masilla rara, que no era muy buena.. xD para la próxima vez ya se que esta no es la indicada -o-, se recubre todo entero y se deja secar




Entonces se lija todo.. se tarda muchísimo.. es un COÑAZO T.T, yo recuerdo que un día vino a cenar un amigo de Sara y terminamos los 3 lijando el arco xD, te deja todo el aire lleno de polvo.. fatal fatal :S -O-, cuando lo tienes todo liso (que nunca queda liso 100%), yo le di otra capa y volví a lijar todo.. lo suyo sería darle 3 o 4 capas para que quedara 100% liso, pero señores y señoras NO TENÍA TIEMPO así que fui con un arco y una espada rugosos ^^U


rugosidad powa! xD



Después le di una capa de imprimación, le puse unas "chuminadillas" con el rotulador de relieve y ya estaba todo listo para pintar. Le di sprayazos de dorado y plateado y luego con pincel seco le di los acabados bonitos




A partir de aquí no tengo más fotos ya que todo lo hice el día antes del salón a toda prisa, sumando más puntos para que quedara más mal xD Incluso Yurio terminó pintando el arco xD qué estrés porfavor!


Resultado final:


ESPADA

ARCO

En fin.. como ya he dicho, hice 2 churros merengueros, y gracias a esto he aprendido a cómo hacerlo mejor para la próxima vez =)
Gracias a la gente que sin querer terminó lijando o cortando algo del arco o la espada jajaj xD

Y para terminar, pido perdón por mi ausencia =(, pero hasta que no termine las cosas de la universidad no podré ponerme con los cosplays y no podré avanzar >.<

Un besito ^^
Cyaaa~~
