Akame ga Kill! - 01 -00100

「Visual Collection/Series Premiere」Akame ga Kill! #01. 「闇を斬る」

Akame ga Kill! certainly has the welcome of a conventional shounen series, but it would be wrong to overlook this show as another run-of-the-mill story about big swords, big boobs, and big plot twists, despite the fact that all three of these elements do make up a good presence in this premiere.

「Visual Collection/Series Premiere」Barakamon #01. 「ばらかこどん」

It’s shows like Barakamon that make me wish I knew a term for the sub-genre to slice-of-life that classifies more with the notion of self-identification through discovering one’s own roots; because if I did, it would be one hell of a useful filter to use when searching for memorable series to watch.

FINAL FANTASY X/X-2 HD Remaster Collector’s Edition

Final Fantasy X is my favorite Final Fantasy game and my favorite game of all-time; I have yet to experience a more beautifully-woven story on an interactive console. And while I admit it’s the narrative of the game that enamors me much more than the game-play itself, when I got news of this remake more than ten years after the original release featuring remastered graphics, audio and mechanics of a new generation, the pre-order of the most expensive edition was a must. Here are a couple of photographs of the FINAL FANTASY X/X-2 HD Remaster Collector’s Edition that includes a full-size, 40 page artbook; the original soundtrack disc with over 100 tracks and six hours of music imported from Japan, inclusive of MP3 format download; five lithographs featuring artwork from the series; and of course the disc for both Final Fantasy X and Final Fantasy X-2. I figures there’s not much point in making this a proper product review, since the collector’s edition itself was a limited release. In lieu of perchance helping people with a potential purchase, this photo set will serve more as, well, photography.
