Macorss Frontier 03

Sniping the targets!!
NO U!!

OMG the bitch slap!!
Odds are 2/3 that Ozma will die soon.
Nope, no innuendos here.

Words fail to describe how beautiful this scene is.
A serene Alto is fine too.

Grunts get a burial with full honours.
Aces never die.

Ranka Lee desu~

Though not as action packed as the last episode, this episode of Frontier does quite well in the drama department and the characters get a more detailed exposure this time around. It was revealed that Ozma was not Ranka's real brother and he was actually the pilot who failed to save her family who was attacked by the Vajra. In addition, Ranka has no recollection of that memory due to a mental block. Alto also managed to clear away his doubts about himself thanks to Ranka and has now joined the Skull Squadron as a pilot. Ranka's singing this episode was absolutely beautiful. If Sheryl's songs were filled with fire and passion, Ranka's was full of compassion and motherly warmth. It is also revealed that Ranka will be taking part in the Miss Macross competition. I do hope she would win and end up with Alto.

As an apology for the late post, here you go.Alto dancing to the Nyan Nyan Song.
Mikhail: What are you doing, Alto-hime?

Preview : 1/8 Hoshii MIki Figure (The Idolmaster) Oh the dilemma!!

Haruhi commands you!!
sorry, cant resist doing that.

Your drill is the drill that will pierce the heavens!!

Ok, now THIS is a dilemma. Two versions of the same magnificent figure released at together. Is Max Factory conspiring to drive otakus bankrupt? Both sculpts of Miki are absolutely gorgeous and I'm not quite sure which one should i get, mind you figures are not cheap to start with. I prefer the version of her in the blue dress with shorter hair but i also like the nekomimi accessory that comes with the other one.

I'm in despair!! Abundance of great figures have left my wallet in despair!!!

Item name:Hoshii Miki Rouse Ver. (Figure)
Manufacturer: Max Factory
Scale: 1/8
Material: PVC
Producer: Hironori Tokunaga
Release Date :Sep

Available at: Hobbysearch

Now, if you would excuse me i have a few spare organs to trade on the black market.

Why Kanokon is the best fanservice show EVER.

Love it or hate it, you have to show Kanokon the respect it deserves. Never in my career of anime watching have i seen such a blatant disregard for censorship rules and moral decency in an anime. The sheer amount of fanservice here is enough to turn a gay man straight and a monk into a perv. Dont believe me? screencaps from the three episodes that have aired would tell you otherwise.
Loving will be had.
Hugs will be given freely.
Hair will glow.
Traps will be fawned upon.
Lingerie will be had.
Everything will seem normal.
Blood will be lost.
Paradise will open.
Tsundere will be deadpan.
Distractions will be had.
Skirts will fly.
voices will scream.
Subs will be misleading

I have heard much criticism and praise for this show due to its phenomenal amount of fanservice. To this i say the producers are just giving the people what they want, no-strings-attached fanservice. If you don't like it don't touch it because even a glimpse of it would prove that you approve of it so shut it and embrace the show for what it is.

This show strikes my fancy because the producers in all their wisdom have decided to ditch any half-assed attempts at plot creation and just focused on bringing about the weekly doses of soft-core. Unlike other fanservice shows like R+V that failed to impress me, Kanokon wins because it doesnt try to cloak itself in decency but raises the heat to the maximum level.

Furthermore the stellar cast of seiyuus in this show made it a dream come true for fanservice lovers like yours truly. Mamiko Noto, Kawasumi Ayako and Takeuchi Miyu voicing their respective roles is more or less like sex to my ears, and it nearly was!

Conclusion: watch Kanokon for the fanservice and fanservice alone. Forget about plot, this show is all about the moe moe moe girls and shoutas.

Director: Natsuki Imai
Voiced By: Megumi Ogata, Megumi Hayashibara, Kotono Mitsuishi & Yuriko Yamaguchi,
Genre: Animation
Language: Japanese with English and Chinese Subtitles

Exclusively at The Picturehouse 3 July 2008

14-year-old boy Shinji arrives in Tokyo-3, a heavily fortified outpost that's survived "Second Impact," a calamity leaving humankind vulnerable to alien machines referred to as Angels. Last hope for survival rests with government agency NERV (whose motto reads, "God is in his heaven, all is right with the world") and its gigantic Evangelion fighting artillery, a human-mechanical hybrid designed by Shinji's distant father, Gendou.

OMFG, after agonising for what seemed like an eternity, the wait has payed off!! Now, to organize a gathering of Malaysian Otakus to go and catch it together.

Macross Frontier 02

Missile spamming is still a favorite past time i see.
The X games has got nothing on this.
Thats why you should never go skating.
"Noble Sniper Mikhail in action"
Macross Academy of free floating.
These alien crafts look seriously buggy.
Be my sister. PLEASE.
Mecha Guro
Yandere alert.
Travelling in Style.
This is sooo Moe.
Everybody loves Alto.
This wont end well. Bets on niceboat are 3/1 now.
RANKA is now earned my favor.

The ED for this episode was really good.

Superb episode, loved every moment of it. The quality of the animation especially the mechas are undoubtedly one of the best of CGs in anime.
Best part of the episode IMO was the part where Alto and Ranka are floating in space, that scene combined the serenity of space and a near death experience surprisingly well.
Also, we are given the reason for Alto's ridiculous good looks in this episode, it is revealed that he is actually the son of a Kabuki theater and thus his good looks and femininity.

The sub i watched this time is by Gattai subs. Though their resolution is higher than AiA subs, I prefer AiA subs because of the subbing of the OP and the ED. Is it really necessary to plaster the names of the staff all over the screen?

This episode of Macross Frontier Featured:
-Near Yuri/siscon/brocon.
-Superb skating scene.
-The Art of Sniping.
-Lost in Space.
-Fanservice in the most literal sense of the word.

This Episode of Macross Frontier lacks:
-Absolutely nothing. (i have no complaints)

p.s. Which style of posting is better this one or the one i used for EP 1?
