BlazBlue: Chrono Phantasma

New BlazBlue announced recently, called BlazBlue: Chrono Phantasma. and it has 3 new characters!

(From left to right): Nishiki Amane, Bullet, and Azrael.

Noel also gets a costume change!

The game is set for release at Winter 2012. ArcSys would most likely make console versions too sometime after the arcade version's release. (I hope that they make a PC and PSP versions also..)


I'm so excited... Btw, Persona 4 Arena was released yesterday. I can't wait to get my copy! (which i won't be able to get for some time... *despairs in a corner*)

(Reblog: Crunchyroll) "Persona 4: Arena" Outsells "Street Fighter IV," "Tekken 6," and "BlazBlue" in Opening Week

Well that's a headline I never, ever thought I'd be writing. Atlus and Arc System Works' fighting spin-off of hit RPG Persona 4, titled Persona 4 Arena for its US release, has proven to be just as big a hit in its opening week's sales. 

PS3: 128,485 
Xbox 360: 9,801

Holy crap, that's not that bad! Compare that to other major fighting game releases' opening week and lifetime sales numbers in Japan: 

Street Fighter IV (2009) 
PS3: 86,075 | 131,727 
360: 37,782 | 51,152 

BlazBlue: Calamity Trigger (2009) 
PS3: 33,786 | 57,796 
360: 24,812 | 36,065 

Tekken 6 (2009) 
PS3: 103,105 | 171,188 
360: 23,261 | 36,673 

Super Street Fighter IV (2010) 
PS3: 80,882 | 177,583 
360: 28,454 | 46,871 

BlazBlue: Continuum Shift (2010) 
PS3: 49,871 | 85,152 
360: 16,184 | 22,543 

That's... really impressive, honestly. There's a few things I'm concerned about, though: are these numbers just from Persona fans rushing to pick the game up based on the popularity of the RPGs and the anime? Or is the game just that good? With Persona 4 Arena boasting an in-depth 30-40 hour Story Mode and sharp 
fighter gameplay from Arc System Works, I can believe it.

Yosuke? Talking about "not getting carried away?" What madness is this? 

 What do you think? Is Atlus just going to be a one-trick pony with Persona 4 Arena, or do you think we'll be seeing more story-intensive fighting games in the future based on this game's surprising success?

Enter the holy month of fasting.

Well, it's the holy month of fasting for Muslims, and again i'll be struggling to wake up very early for Suhoor.
We go through the day without eating and drinking, and also restrain ourselves from lust, from dawn until dusk. (Which means no galges and loli/moe/ecchi anime for a month lol.)

For some people a day without lunch may be quite torturous, but there are benefits or moral values we can get from fasting, such as experiencing how the poor goes through the day without food so we can feel sympathy for them. I'm also looking forward to the family gatherings. The whole family gathering around the dinner table in the weekends, chatting and having fun. Dinner just tastes much better, right?

Wish you all happy fasting!

Anime Festival Asia (Indonesia)

As the title says, AFA is coming down here in September. I should prepare myself for then.  What, do you ask? Cosplay, of course!

Oh my god.

Now for myself, I can go as either Okabe Rintarou from Steins;Gate, or Okumura Yukio from Ao no Exorcist.
I personally would choose Yukio since we have quite the same appearance and archetype (not to mention moles on my face lol.)  but since i can't make my own costume, i'll have to order online. but the price is,  Ugh.. beyond my reach ($125)

So i'll just put on my labcoat, and be that mad scientist.

I'll have to find my old red cellphone too.

Anyone coming to AFA INDO cosplaying as Kurisutina, please let me know. 

More info on AFA here. See ya there.

Kirari's Star: Thoughts on 2D love: I'm sure you guys are very familiar with 2D love. I'm sure some of you find it silly while others take it seriously.
