5.0 out of 5 stars Great earphones., 20 Oct 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I have been wearing these at least twice a day for almost a year, and showed no signs of wear until I foolishly damaged them by accident. Excellent earphones, that will never fall out of your ears whilst running. Good sound quality as well. I did not hesitate for even a second to buy a replacement pair.

5.0 out of 5 stars Titanic fun, 13 May 2013

This review is from: Attack On Titan 1 (Paperback)
Attack on Titan, or Shingeki no Kyojin, is one of my favourite manga, and one of the best to be recently published in the UK. Humanity lives penned within a series of walls like livestock, all but helpless against the man eating Titans that roam the world outside. Even their 3D movement gear, a series of grappling hooks and blades, can't lead them to victory. When a Collosal Titan capable of breaking the wall appears, humanity has to take drastic action to survive.
Influenced by the classic Visual Novel "Muv Luv Alternative", this manga is all about despair and hope. Whilst it's not painful to read, humanity is on a constant downwards slope towards extinction. The main characters are hardly overpowered heroes. The sense of simple fear the Titans give off is quite impressive, translating well from a still image. Although the art is a little underwhelming, this is a series that picks up 100% from the first volume, so don't be afraid to buy it from the start. I wholeheartedly reccomend reading this manga, which only gets more intriguing, mysterious, and thrilling, with each new chapter.


Zaregoto, Book 2: The Kubishime Romanticist
Zaregoto, Book 2: The Kubishime Romanticist
by Nisioisin
Edition: Paperback
Price: 5.84

5.0 out of 5 stars Nisioisin, 23 Jan 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This book is amazing. It continues from the great Zaregoto book 1 and expands. No longer so focused on the murder mystery theme, this book is far more of a character study into our protagonist with an elusive name, "Iikkun" , or "Ii-chan" , or "who?" , and many more names. Just when you thought you understood his seemingly empty existence and mind from book 1, each event in this book will change the way you see him, and the other interesting characters around him. I was fascinated by each new fact I learnt, from his tastes in food, his room layout, to his more personal beliefs and philosophies. Of the many new characters, two stand out as being exceedingly interesting; the adorable Aoii Mikoko, impossible not to adore, and the seemingly monstrous Zerozaki Hitoshiki. Wether he truly is the most inhuman character, is something for the reader may rethink by the end of the book. I'm sure this book has something for every reader to enjoy, to consider, to think about.
The final twist in this book may make you flip tables, be warned.
Buy this great book before it goes out of print, then lament that you may never read the following volumes in english.


Zaregoto 1: Book 1: Kubikiri Cycle
Zaregoto 1: Book 1: Kubikiri Cycle
by Nisioisin
Edition: Paperback

4.0 out of 5 stars Murder Mystery with a touch of Madness, 23 Jan 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
If you don't know who Nisioisin is, he's a writer. He writes a ton of great things, but this was his first book.
Full of talking, as any Nisio fan would expect, this story revolves around a group of geniuses together on an island getaway, isolated. When one dies, these supposed geniuses must work out who the culprit is. Perhaps our protagonist, the seemingly soulless and ambigously named "Ii-kun" , as in "I" , or "myself" , may be surprisingly useful in this endeavour?
If you like Nisio, read this, there's all the things you would expect. Nonsensical conversations, autism moe, endings that rapidly untie all the loose ends, the lot. It's a wonderful book, and I personally was surprised by how well the mystery was written. It's not a book where there's no way you can figure out the killer because they hide evidence from the reader. It is possible, but there's a bigger picture that you surely won't see.
Although I greatly enjoyed this, it is out of print. Is it worth 20 or more? In my opinion, for the experience of reading book 2, yes.


BlazBlue Continuum Shift: Extend - Limited Edition (PS3)
BlazBlue Continuum Shift: Extend - Limited Edition (PS3)

5.0 out of 5 stars This... is the power of the Azure, 24 Sep 2012
= Fun:5.0 out of 5 stars

Blazblue Continuum Shift Extend is an excellent upgrade from Blazblue continuum shift. This limited edition consists of a stylish box adorned with Ignis' face, containing the game itself in a nice box showing Ragna about to activate the Blazblue, and a soundtrack of the new songs in this game alongside some concept art. The cover art is a massive step up from the previous ugly westernized art covers, a great improvement from the localization team. However, this also leads to my major complaint with this game, that being that some English voice actors are replaced in their new scenes. Hazama for instance, whose incredible voice actor greatly added to Continuum Shift, is replaced in new scenarios by an adequate, but not quite the same, actor. This is no problem if you use Japanese voices, but it very much irritated me so that I did switch to the Japanese voices, something I rarely did with the previous games.
The game itself is as you would expect; A beautiful new opening, wonderful new characters, interesting new game modes, original story scenarios for the additional characters,and the ability to unlock in game all sorts of DLC from previous titles such as Unlimited Characters and new announcers. There is also an abridged, remade version of the original Calamity Trigger story, a little brief and light on exposition but enjoyable nonetheless. Those who have played Continuum Shift can carry over their story mode progress, however for 100% some segments must be replayed, so this feature is not perfect. Gameplay is as slick as ever, every character feels good to play as once you have mastered their individual intricacies, a task that will take some time, and mastering the game to the levels expected at the top tier online is a long task indeed. Beginners fear not however, plenty of new players compete online, and a clear tutorial can explain how to play to even the most inexperienced gamer. If you have enjoyed Continuum shift, there is no good reason not to get this, and if you have never played Blazblue before this definitive edition is a good place to start. With ChronoPhantasma approaching consoles fast, it's a good time to Blazblue.

3.0 out of 5 stars Massive potential, but demonically short., 19 Jun 2010

This review is from: D. Gray-Man 1 (Paperback)
I bought this volume to see if this series, D. Gray Man, was one that I would enjoy. After reading this volume, I would have to say that it has potential to be an excellent series. The only problem is that in this volume, realtively little happens. I don't know if later volumes contain more action, but if they do you might be better served by buying one of them. However, the art style and story premise are both excellent. I just wished I had seen more of Lenalee Lee and her brother....
