TYPE-MOON Ace vol. 5 release date

May 7, 2010

A release date for the fifth volume of TYPE-MOON Ace, these usually consist of interviews and information related to their work along with some manga at the end like the All Around TYPE-MOON which features the characters from their works meeting in a cafe. And where the last  issue mainly focused on the Unlimited Blade Works movie it looks as if this one will focus on the yet to be released Mahou Tsukai no Yoru visual novel.

So it should be released on the 21st of June. I’ve also got a copy of the fourth volume so perhaps I could do a post on that despite in being released some time ago.

Souce: TYPE-MOON’s official site and Comptiq’s preview.

tm-ace402

Looks like this issue will be focused around Fate/Extra and the Unlimited Blade Works movie where the last issue was mainly Mahoyo and Melty Blood focused. Hopefully it’ll contain some information on the Tsukihime remake.

So I’m guessing this will be released sometime December.

Fullmetal Alchemist: Brotherhood 28

October 18, 2009

Back to the manga’s storyline, this is sort of incomplete since Keyhole messed up.

FMA28-005

Temporary screenshots thanks to 2chan, expect tl;dr until they’re updated and it becomes less apparent.

Al and Gluttony arrive at father’s lair, and Al notices the resemblance between Father and Hohenhiem.

Looks like the third volume of Type-Moon Ace will be released on the 21st of August this year, and obviously from the cover it will contain new information on Mahou Tsukai no Yoru.

Along with stuff on Fate/Zero, Melty Blood: Actress Again, the PSP port for Fate/Unlimited Codes, the seventh Kara no Kyoukai movie and CANAAN. Generally what you can see on the cover above…


1/72 Noblesse Oblige and V.O.B. kits in August

April 14, 2009

1/72 kits of Noblesse Oblige and the Vanguard Overed Booster are now up for reservation and will be released in August.

Since I’ve already got a HOGIRE kit I’ll probably only get the V.O.B. This also kind of annoys me as Noblesse Oblige and its back cannons are awesome and I’ve always been a fan of Rosenthals rifiles not to mention that the stabilisers also look nice. However since the general frame is the same theres no point in me getting it.
Hopefully Kotobukiya releases a Noblesse Oblige add-on pack for the HOGIRE now, even though the chances of so are low.


1/100 Arios

March 19, 2009

I got this some time last week, but didn’t have time to build it.
Pros:
– Transforms easily.
– Double wrist joints.
– Torso joint.

Cons:
– Only a single rifile is included.
– I found the forearm vulcans to be a let down, as I expected a sliding mechanism instead there is psuedo part swapping.

Lulz/Wtf:
– GN-Drive is located in the pelvis.
– After including dual sets of hands in the Cherudim and 00, there was only one set included.

Conclusion:
Not really that much wrong with it, I actually found it to be along the same standards as the Cherudim. My only real complaint would be the forearm vulcans.
Concerning the single set of hands, the wrists use the same type of joint from the 00 so you could interchange them if needed.

Pictures are now up. Photography skills still suck.

Kotobukiya plans another Armored Core kit for June

March 12, 2009

Seems like Kotobukiya is going to push the Armored Core range this year, as they are going to release another Armored Core kit in June following White Glint. Don’t be surprised though, its just another Aaliyah variation. This time with a plasma rifile(Samsara), laser blade(Dragonslayer), and flares(051-ANAM). Oddly enough called “Surrplis”, its name sounds too familiar to “Supplice” from Armored Core 4.

Anyway you can get it at the usual places.
