Get your anime on Xbox Live

14 11 2008

Viz Media has announced that the popular shounen series Bleach and Death Note will be available for purchase on Xbox Live in exchange for Microsoft Points. Every episode goes for 160 points each. Hopefully it will be possible to watch the episodes you purchase directly on your Xbox, otherwise it’s just plain crap. It will probably work though, the problem may be exporting the episodes you purchase to any other device. I don’t know and since I don’t plan to buy any Death Note or Bleach episodes from Xbox Live or even get any Microsoft Points I guess I’ll never know, huh? So far the 41 episodes of Bleach and 37 episodes of Death note (the complete series, unless one or more are specials or something) are available. Maybe this is something for that person who has got 160 Microsoft Points left and nothing else to spend it on, or maybe for that hard-core Bleach or Death Note fan; although I think the episodes are dubbed.





Valkyria Chronicles anime in 2009

14 11 2008

The game called Valkyria Chronicles which I have never really played myself is going to be an anime next year – spring 2009, to be more precise. If you have played the game and like it, cross your fingers (or whatever you do) and pray for nothing bad to happen, cancelling the show. It probably won’t, but you never know. Now pray!

I’m back for the weekend after two or at least one week without coming home in-between (on weekends, that is) and I will now explode this blog with interesting news, assuming any interesting stuff has happened while I was gone. Sorry for the delay, but as soon as I get out of that place completely I will write news every day! Look forward to it. ^^

EDIT: Yesterday I got my hands on a new Stephen King book from 2008 (I believe), called “Duma Key.” I haven’t read it yet, but hopefully it’s as good as all his other books. I also got volume 6 of the Swedish edition of Death Note yesterday, after purchasing lots of other manga on an occasion before that.





I’m back, Mao-chan~

19 10 2008

I just came back from Norrköping and my brother and I’m soon to leave again. Actually, I didn’t come right home when I got off the train, I visited SF Bokhandeln and got some more manga first, but more about that later.

This week has been more a personal matter than something I really want to talk about in a blog accessible by the whole world (or at least by the people with internet access – and can read and understand English), so I’ll keep it short and questionable (maybe). We went bowling yesterday – disco bowling; it was fun but it wasn’t exactly my best game ever played. Before bowling I ate pizza. That’s it for you.
On my train ride home (almost two hours, or 107 minutes to be a little more exact – a few minutes may vary) I read some Katekyou Hitman REBORN! (about a volume) and then drew the rest of the time. My style is starting to look a bit like the one of Tite Kubo, author of Bleach and Zombie Powder. XD

At SF Bokhandeln I got the manga Mao-chan (therefore the title) with story by Akamatsu Ken and art by Ran from 2002, although completely new in English – I have only read chapter one and two so far, but it seems quite fun; however, it could be better … if you’re a Akamatsu Ken fan, you may want to check it out, and if your a die-hard Akamatsu Ken fan you have to get it, because his name is on the cover page (that’s the reason I got it, really) – and volume one to nine of One Piece. Oh, and I got yet another volume of Death Note (now I have ten volumes and still haven’t gotten a volume with a higher number on the cover than five).

When I got home, I remember now, I had gotten a package from CDON with seasons one to three of Two and a Half Men (great show, check it out) and four two-in-one DVDs (that is eight movies, and I got them all for the price of only one regular or cheaper twin pack DVD). Anyway, now I have to eat. Seriously, I have to eat, otherwise I’ll croak! Bye bye, friends.





Back for the weekend.

20 09 2008

Hi. I’m back for the weekend. :)
Is that good or bad news? I hope you find it good news, because I don’t like not being wanted. :3

However, now I’m done with that subject. Maybe I shouldn’t have named the post like that? Ah, who cares, let’s just see were this goes. ^^

I don’t currently live at home and haven’t been home for two whole weeks and have barely even been near a computer, but it has not all been bad, I did get my hand on manga for much money, that’s enough. I had written more than double of what is written from start to this sentence but I remembered that I had actually been to the place three times, not two, making all the stuff I had written rubbish. T_T
Anyway, I’ll try to write it more correctly this time, but probably not as detailed. And having that said, I will really make it even more detailed as I write. Well, let’s just wait/write and see. ^^

So, I went to the store in Gamla Stan (Old Town) called SF Bokhandeln (that’s the Science Fictions Bookstore, but they have lots of manga, anime and stuff as well as fantasy and sci-fi books and role-play games such as Warhammer and Dungeons & Druggies Dragons (I don’t know much about that stuff, really, I’m just there for the manga and japanese imports)) three times (not two! >.<) and got quite a lot of great stuff! Only manga, though … But that’s great!

On the first and second visit (can’t divide it, don’t remember) I got the two first and so far only issues of the new magazine YEN PLUS with eleven series (although it’s not all Japanese manga, it’s also Korean stuff that I don’t like as much) and a very complicated page number system (lol), Shonen Jump volume 8, issue 10 (the latest October issue that comes with a paper ANBU mask! :D), volumes one and two of Fullmetal Alchemist (although I’m pretty sure I have both already, somewhere in the mess that is my home), the fourth volume of Sgt. Frog/Sergeant Frog (“Keroro Gunsou” 「ケロロ軍曹」), volume seven of Welcome to the NHK (only one left now!), Death note vol 4 (now I have vol 1-4 in English, vol 1-4 in Swedish and also vol 2 in Japanese) and finally the eighth volume of Air Gear (I had a gap there between volumes 1-7 and 9). That’s probably all, otherwise I’m going senile or maybe I’m just very tired or maybe I have been drugged OMFGNOE! *tired*
Oh yeah, I also got the first volume of the new Code Geass manga.

On the third visit, earlier today before I came home for the weekend, I bought REBORN! (“Katekyo Hitman REBORN!” 家庭教師ヒットマンREBORN!) vol 1-2, even though I have not quite so legally already read past that point, but I wanted to have the volumes for real and wanted to support the author of one of the best mangas I’ve ever read (haven’t you read it? READ IT!), volumes one, two and three of Shugo Chara! (don’t mention that it’s a shojo and a children’s manga, it’s awesome!).

Man, I’m so tired I don’t even know if what I just wrote made any sense. I hope it did, of course, but to find that out you have to read the post and I’m too tired to read now … T_T
And yeah, if it’s just nonsense, I’m so sorry to have wasted you time. xD

EDIT: Oh yeah, I also got the first book of the The Wheel of Time series, The Eye of the World! That explains a lot, money-wise. Haven’t read more than the prologue and a few pages, but that’s because I’ve been too busy and tired. T_T
I’ll return when I’ve read more and give you my opinions about it. Maybe. If I remember. And I’ll also tell you all about my time at the other place when I have something interesting to tell you about it. :)

FINAL WORDS: I’ve had it, I won’t edit this post anymore. I have probably at least one or two things I’ve forgot to write. I’m very tired. I don’t even remember what I’ve written anymore, so I’ll just leave it as it is now, add a few more tags and then I won’t care anymore. Good bye.
