It has always been a common thing for otaku to buy and get the stuff from Japan and I do understand that, but every once in a while, a rare gem appears. Megatokyo is one of those few manga titles made entirely in the west. Of course, you still have the Japanese influence in there but this masterpiece is one of my favorite western made Manga. In fact, this thing started out as a webmanga way back in 2000. Megatokyo is actually celebrating it’s 10th year and its still going strong.

The beauty about this manga is that its available free online at Megatokyo.com. You can start from the very beginning of the manga (Chapter 0) up all the way to the latest release. If you are too lazy to go thru all those pages, get the paperback editions (which I do have). The panel above shows my favorite couple Erika and Largo. Erika is a former idol and seiyuu that was really famous in Japan. She’s now just a lonely store clerk in an Anime, Manga and Gaming shop. Largo, is an American who happens to be the ultimate l337 gamer, hardcore computer overclocker and super smart awesome-sauce hacker. Go read this amazing masterpiece now!

Nostalgia… It’s one of those blue days that really gets to you. I was so tired at work that I decided to read some manga and then popped in a few Anime DVDs. Coincidentally, my brother bought a new Macross Valkyrie VF-25G model kit. It made me want to watch Macross Frontier again so I popped in a DVD. I was planning on only watching a few episodes but I ended up watching episodes 3 through 25!

I was never really a fan of Macross but watching this series a second time made me curious on the past Macross franchises. The only other Macross franchises I’ve seen are Macross 2 and the first few episodes of Macross Zero. I never started from the beginning but I do know a great deal of the story thanks to my bro, who’s a Macross/Gundam addict. I think I want to collect the whole series now.

Hit the jump for my latest work on MMD. Guess who it is? Hint hint: Kyun~

Sora no Woto: First Impressions

swt1Many people believed that Sora no Woto was going to be similar to K-ON but only in a different setting. Having seen the first episode shed some light on this matter.

The plot appears to be in a timeline around the end of World War 2, but it doesn’t actually occur in a European country as I thought at first. It appears to be an alternate universe of sorts. The City looks European but I was quite surprised when they celebrated a festival that pretty much had Japanese origins.

Spolier alert: Screenshots and some plot spills ahead. Continue at your own risk!

So I did another test. This time with the whole K-ON gang. I played around with the filters of Sony Vegas and it turned out to be cool. This time though, even with the available nyan nyan data motion, something screwed up their hand animations. Turns out the models had additional bone controls that messed the arm movements so I had to go into each single model and look for those bones that caused the uncanny problem and do some tweaking.

Hit the jump to see the “2009 obligatory stuff” post that I picked up from Naneee?!

Toaru nani ga Nyan Nyan?

misakaLol. Okay, so I’ve been hooked on Toaru Kagaku no Railgun. It’s a side-story of Toaru Majitsu no Index (which I’m puzzled why its called this way since it was mostly about Touma and rarely about Index herself).

At first I thought it was purely made for the boys, since it did contain a lot of fanservice. In addition, you have those two new cute characters Saten and Uiharu. It turned out to have its own charm. Go go girl pawaa! Did I mention Uiharu is so cute? Sigh…

I’ve also been tinkering with more MMD stuff. This time with Azu-nyan (Azusa) from K-ON. I think I have learned a great deal more with the camera and stuff. I will post something tomorrow on what I did with the cameras but for now, hit the jump below to see what I did!
