It was released generally from 2005 April 2nd "Tokyo international animation fair 2005". The new work animation which even this event largest eyeball can be said is introduced roughly

With the side, the package which combines image and the figure new contents ' SPECTER ' of the new genre "フィギュアニメ" which is done it announces. The collaboration work ' grinding gun loyal retainer red ず of the figure and animation it is to come ' with to be different, this time it has united with the special 撮 image work. As for the suit and the motorcycle which are displayed, you say that it is something which was used in actual production, but the degree of completion is high.

There is also a work which is only 1 just panel which passes. But, among those with the title which "Tokyo international animation fair 2005" is announced it is many. For example, there is a ANIPLEX booth, movie ' BLOOD of production IG production THE LAST VAMPIRE ' TV animation series ' TV Series BLOOD '. In addition, it was stretched without no げ in the pillar inside the booth ' it is full, the ゅ! '. ' TV Series BLOOD ', the news of the notification event had entered, but ' it is full, the ゅ!

' And so on and so on. Image and display are seen even with the booth of affiliated enterprise depending upon the work and, if it kept looking at each booth finely, still new work information overflowed.
This poster says
"The project that Hollywood makes MONSTER into a film starts!"
The magazine Big Comic Original makes a shocking announcement on the next number
"The world will be shaken in this spring"
Big Comic Original has announced that New Lines Cinema + Trilogy Entertainment and Urasawa Naoki have agreed upon the contract of cinematization of MONSTER fundamentally. This right is a right called the option right which they can plan monopolistically.
 But I don't really see how it would work there just so much going on in that sereis to cut it into a 2 or even 3 hour movie. The anime alone is scheduled for 72 episodes.

Shootin' the Breeze / Manga on Mobile Phones.
« on: March 16, 2005, 11:46:36 PM »
Well, with all my topics like "Death to........ bittorrent!!?? ??" and "Ds vs PSP" I am a "Texhnolyze" (if you get my drift)
Recently TokyoPop and GoComics has announced that they will have 3 manga titles available for mobile phones.
Saying:
Quote
NEW ORLEANS, LA.-Three popular manga titles are now available for mobile phones from GoComics. In an exclusive arrangement, TOKYOPOP and GoComics have launched three original properties for wireless use.

Princess Ai, @Large and Shutter Box are now available to mobile
operators and their subscribers. Manga graphic novels are a Japanese comic phenomena that has quickly become the fastest growing segment of North American book retail sales. "Everything is manga these days," says GoComics CEO Chris Pizey. "Book stores' comic book shelves are dominated by this style of art. It's tremendously exciting to be working with TOKYOPOP to bring the hottest graphic trend in the world to mobile phone users."

Manga graphic novels appeal to the new generation of young adults- men and women both - increasingly influenced by international culture, by mixing traditional action with elegant stories about human relationships.

"Princess Ai is the #1 selling manga hit comic that appeals to women 16-25. @Large has a following of men 18-30 and ShutterBox is favored by women 13 to 20. These are great demographics for mobile phone users."

"We are delighted to work with GoComics in bringing our popular manga titles to the small screen." says Kathryn Klingler, Director of
Licensing for TOKYOPOP.

With nearly 28 million books in print, TOKYOPOP's award-winning catalogue of licensed and original properties features more than 200,000 pages of manga compiled
over nearly 1,000 manga volumes.

 I was wondering if this is a service you would take advantage of on your own mobile phone? What if there were more titles available?

For me I don't think I would use this service even if there were more titles available since the screen on  phones i seen are so tiny it would be difficult to see what was going on in the manga. I also love being able to hold a manga in my hands, flip though it and take my time reading it. With manga on a cell it just doesn't seem as relaxing to me. Manga for me is a break from technology. It gets me away from the computer, television and the phone. Having it on my phone just doesn't seem right to me. I think it would slow me down. Even when reading something slow like Sand Land, I am only on a frame for a few seconds, and loading the frames would kill me. I doubt that they could show more than 2 frames at a time.it's my strong opinion that this whole thing is going to die, and die fast. While cellphones are popular things in Japan, they aren't that integrated here in the US. Yes, everyone has them, but no, most do not use it for everything they do in their lives.

It's also very impractical. How many pixels does the average phone have? Is it going to even be readable without the expense of the picture itself? They might as well have a storybook or something. Also, I hate reading manga on my computer, so why would I want to read it on my cellphone?

Does anyone like reading with their cellphone?
It may only shoot off in Japan, where cell phones are somewhat a large intregal part of everyday life.


But It would also save on paper since it wouldn't be printed out. I suppose if you have a PDA or a phone with a larger screen like those ones made for games it would be better as well. I am sure there are other benefits if I start to think about this service.
As almost everyone has already pointed out, cell phone screens don't provide nearly enough pixels to even see the graphics clearly, which is what manga is all about (well, there's plot of course, but if the art isn't appealing, whose going to want to read it?).

TokyoPop is taking an expensive risk with this, and I have a feeling it's going to come back and bite them--Kujo-style.


What are your opinions on reading manga on your mobile phone?

Shootin' the Breeze / Devil May Cry 3
« on: March 12, 2005, 12:14:42 AM »
The game is great so far. The first two Levels play like stages (i mean not much free RE roaming) There are 7 fighting styles

Trickster: Trickster is the default style and basically the most well rounded  one of them all, considering you can already attack and shoot with good proficiency based on just the square and triangle buttons, setting the circle button up as a dodge button can be helpful.  This style gives you the ability to dodge attacks quickly as well as the ability to run up walls.

SWORDMASTER - For those who prefer the use of the blade there's the
Swordmaster style.  This style gives you an additional sword attack button,
the circle button.  You can spin your sword around and also slash in mid-air.

GUNSLINGER - My personal favourite, Gunslinger changes the circle button to an additional gunfire button giving virtually every gun a secondary fire mode and allowing you to shoot in multiple directions, charge up your Handguns, and do the Rain Storm attack where you spin upside down in mid-air.  Another thing you may not know is if you knock down an easy enemy, jump on his back to surf!

ROYALGUARD - This is the defensive style, I've rarely used it but it changes the circle button to a block button and gives you the ability to defend and counterattack.  Given enough experience it should prove to be quite useful.

QUICKSILVER - Unlocked after defeating Geryon, this style gives you the ability to use your Devil Trigger as a means to stop time and slash wildly at enemies who can do little but stay still as they are chopped into pieces.

DOPPELGANGER - The final style is unlocked not surprisingly after defeating the Doppelganger.  With this you can go into Devil Trigger and use R1 + Circle to spawn an image of yourself to help fight.  This image can actually be controlled by a second controller, plug it in and try it out yourself.
There are 10 weapons in the game
Devil Arms: Rebellion Cerberus Agni & Rudra Nevan Beowulf
Guns: Ebony & Ivory Shotgun Artemis Spiral Kalina Ann

Dante fights his brother Vergil who was Nelo Angelo in Devil may cry 1, and in DMC 1 he had his spikey hair.
Well what do you guys think of the game??

Shootin' the Breeze / DS vs PSP
« on: February 25, 2005, 12:40:03 AM »
Ok, in your opinion which is better the psp or ds

For starters the DS has longer battery life then the PSP but the PSP has more[better] launching titles. I dont wanna play no damn mario.Also to my understanding, PSP dosnt have Online play, but the DS(using bluetooth technoligy) can play online or use Pictochat from 100 feet away from you. But psp price may be at 150 at launch. So Ds has convineince with its system, but Psp has what matters most, good games.I am voting for the Psp because
1. The PSP first of all, kills the Nintendo DS with graphics. The DS in graphics can be compared to about between N64 and Dreamcast graphics, which is good. However, the PSP is between PSX and PS2 type graphics, so who do you think wins this battle?

2. Battery Life. This is the Nintendo Fanboy's biggest piece of fuel against the PSP. When tested by PSM magazine, it was found that with the backlight on Max, the volume on max, and playing Ridge Racer, the most graphical game on the PSP to date, the battery life lasted approx. 4 hours and 28 minutes. However, when the backlight was turned to medium and the vol. on low, the battery life lasted 5 hours and 31 minutes. Ha! 5 hours! Now, who other than DS Fanboys, can complain about playing for 5 hours? The only way you can play a game for 17 hours is if you are an idiot with no life. The rest of us can stick with PSP thank you.

3.PSP Flaws. Now DS fanboys, get ready to have your socks knocked off. The biggest problems I've have heard were about the square button and the UMD disc problem. Let me address them. The president of Sony stated that due to an intentional design flaw, the square button is too close the game screen, and the sensitivity of the square button is low since the actual sensor for the button is under the screen, not the button itself. The other problem is that if the PSP is twisted while applying pressure to it, the UMD door will unclasp, causing the UMD disc to fly out of the PSP. To both of those problems listen to this: Out of the 500,000 PSP units that were sold, only 4,800 PSPs were returned back because of problems. And guess what? Most of them were returned because of air bubbles and dead pixels on the screen. Not the square button or UMD problem. Get your facts straight DS Fanboys.

4.Memory and Other Things. To start off, yes you need to buy Memory sticks to save things on the PSP. But $80? No no no. That's if you buy the Sony brand memory sticks. A 1GB memory stick from Sony could cost you about $200. A MadCatz or Pelican stick could cost you almost 3/4 less of that price. Again, get your facts straight people. The PSP will also have:

-internet browser that can be downloaded from Sony to acess the internet with your PSP,
-A built-in Microphone to translate English to any other language you see fit
- MP3 and MPEG 3 and 4 playback to be able to play both MP3s and Movies on your PSP.
- A program called Image Converter 2 to be able to save images from any other Sony brand Digital camera or video recorder to your PSP.
- What's this about online play? Yes, the PSP will feature Wi-Fi play with the push of a button to play with up to 16 other players depending on the game.

Ridge Racer- 8 players
NBA Street Remix 2 - 4 players
NFL Street 2 - 6 players
NFS: Rivals- 6 players
Coded Arms: 16 players in Deathmatches
Tales of Eternia- 4 players in RPG

The number will increase when more games come out. But also, the Wi-Fi will allow PSP users to access Wi-Fi hotspots to play over greater distances with the PSP then the DS. TheWi-Fi will allow internet access as well.
Oh andif u tpe lik dis, don't even waste your time here please,This is for people who actually understand the English language.
Edit: the psp has online play

Shootin' the Breeze / Berserk or GANTZ
« on: February 12, 2005, 03:45:57 PM »
I just watched A.D.V's new release of Studio Gonzo's GANTZ, and it's one of the most disturbing animes I've ever seen. It was so graphic that it had to be censored on Japanese TV. A train blasts two High School student's bodies to pieces, a Yakuza attempts to rape a girl who appeared out of nowhere naked, a dog gives the girl oral pleasure, people get ripped to peices. I didnt think i could find anything more graphic and disturbing then Berserk, or texhnolyze. so what do you think?? What do you think is more graphic.
lets hear em

Shootin' the Breeze / Death to... BitTorrent!?

Hollywood movie studios on Tuesday launched new legal action against operators of sites that help connect people to movies on two major peer-to-peer filesharing networks.
http://www.myotaku.com/users/kidotaku/I Posted the whole story on my site(i post alot of this crap on my site). If your to lazy like me to go on it it says

Hollywood movie studios on Tuesday launched new legal action against operators of sites that help connect people to movies on two major peer-to-peer filesharing networks.

In the United States, the Motion Picture Association of America, the main lobbying arm of American film studios, filed civil lawsuits against operators of BitTorrent tracker sites, which point to locations where downloadable files can be found. In Europe, legal action in partnership with international law enforcement are expected against parties responsible for the hosting of servers in the eDonkey network.
Both BitTorrent and eDonkey allow millions to share copies of movies, music, software and games. Because of its efficiency in helping users handle very large files -- such as digital copies of feature-length films -- BitTorrent has attracted the enmity of Hollywood.

The MPAA has filed previous suits against individual downloaders. Its actions come just days after the Supreme Court agreed to take up the landmark MGM v. Grokster filesharing case.

In August, the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals ruled that peer-to-peer companies cannot be held responsible for intellectual property infringement that may take place on their networks, because the technologies can be also used for legitimate, non-infringing purposes.

After urgent requests from the MPAA, the Recording Industry Association of America and a class of 27,0000 songwriters and musicians, the high court agreed last week to decide the case on appeal.

For now, P2P services such as Grokster, BitTorrent and eDonkey are not illegal. But so-called "indexing servers" that help users download copyrighted content are. In its original architecture, the Napster network used a centralized database to keep track of which file sharer had which file. Other decentralized nets such as Grokster do not have a central repository -- and this distinction became a key reason why the courts banned Napster while permitting Grokster and Streamcast to continue.

The BitTorrent tracker sites do not hold content themselves, but serve as a dynamically generated library of urls that show users where portions of files are located within the constellation of participating nodes. They help to connect users who want a file with other users who have that file on their hard drive.

Regardless of whether the tracker sites host content or not, people close to the matter say the MPAA is likely to argue that the people who host such sites are aware that the servers make acts of copyright infringement possible, and should therefore be held liable.

While this new round of legal attack would represent the first time the MPAA has attempted to sue parties responsible for hosting trackers, both BitTorrent and eDonkey have been in the entertainment trade group's sights for some time. As the popularity of both services boomed in recent months, the MPAA has escalated its attempts to compel ISPs to take action against action within their domain.

MPAA representatives declined to comment in advance of Tuesday's press conference

I'm hoping that it's not going to be cell shaded, because as proven in that screen shot, it looks like crap with Kubotite's style. I'm hoping that's just a sort of concept example. The Game Might Be On PsP or Ps2. I Hoping Its On Ps2 because i am not going ot buy PSP.
