Weiss schwarz Sword Art Online Release Date: Questionables

The last post on the news for Sword Art Online may sound nice but there is still a lot of questions to ask before getting everyone’s hopes up.  Sword Art Online trial decks and boosters will undoubtedly sell like hot cakes but the problem lies in Bushiroad.  Will they be able to meet the Fall deadline that they have promised? Usually prior to the release of a series, there would be official announcements on the main WS TCG site a few months in advance of the release date, but for Sword Art Online this is not the case.  It feels like SAO is a reserve series that will be held back until the anime ends or when they are in need of a release.  I can say this because the Vocaloid series, which is intended for March, is already in the fancy scrolling list of Schwarz series on the main WS site.  My prediction is that Bushiroad wants to wait until the Accel World and Robotics notes hype is over and the all the fans have replenished their money supply to release SAO.  Since they haven’t even announced a specific date, they don’t even need to worry about pulling the same shameful tactic of apologizing for postponing the release date like they did for Fate/Zero boosters.  SAO is coming, but just not coming as fast as it says in the ad.  If I was in Bushiroad, I would say it would be released early next year since it feels empty for new releases around that time.

Am I correct in my hypothesis? Or am I just trolling? What do you think? Feel free to leave a comment.

First Post Involving Weiss Schwarz

Hey ever heard about a game called Weiss Schwarz? Well it’s a card game that combines many different anime series together and allows players to duel each other.  There are lots of sites to read about how to play the game and view all the series available so far. A few of them are:
Little Akiba– A great site for translations.
Weiss Schwarz Wiki– A site for your general needs (e.g. terminology, gameplay, ect.)
Heart of the Cards– Another great site for translations, and news.

It’s not a hard game to learn despite that fact that it’s all in Japanese.  A-invasion members are mostly Japanese illiterate and we’ve managed to play without any problems after a month.  This is because each person sticks to one series so there is only about 100 different cards to memorize.

The most important thing to take away from this post is that I play Fate/Zero series for my deck and it is the best.  Don’t follow the band wagon of players who play all those little girl series. Don’t be a pedo. Think about it. If you were in fight, who would you take more seriously.  A little girl who is looking all cute or Iskandar charging at you with full force on his steed. So don’t pick any weak decks like Railgun, or Rewrite, or Persona 4 cause you’ll just regret it.  FATE/ZERO (and fate/stay night) all the way!

Yeah! BOOSTERS! Do ignore the other two crappy boosters.  Those are not mine.  I only needed them for visual impact.

 

The show that asdfsafe failed at blogging

Just watched episode 13 of Denpa Oto….blah blah blah.  You know that show with the weird opening and an unlimited amount of sparkles around Erio’s head.  Well this special episode definitely did not lack the sparkle overload aspect, since it was necessary to make Erio look transcendent.  This is acceptable, Twilight’s style is not.  Well it seems in this episode, everything Makoto believed and have tried so hard to establish was turned upside down.  Near the end, Yashiro showed up and told Makoto that she will prove to him that she is an alien with great power.  Yashiro tells Makoto to step back 3 steps and starts performing a ritual.  Almost immediately a meteor grazes Makoto and strikes the same place that he was standing only a moment ago.  The bewildered Makoto is left with unanswerable questions as Yashiro disappears during the moment of impact.  After this event, Makoto is back to wondering whether or not aliens exist.  And if they do, does that mean Erio’s past beliefs of her encounter with aliens was true.  If so, wouldn’t Makoto have wasted half a dozen episodes working his butt of in order to force his lies onto Erio? Wouldn’t he be the one who wasted time to cover the truth due to his small mindedness, instead of trying to find ways of proving alien life?

I really like how this show is a slice of life with a hint of aliens and how the writer does not chose to explain the alien aspect any further than it is.  This show is very much like Anohana as the true nature of the supernatural is not explored and the themes of friendship and family are more pronounced.

High School Girls

This week’s episode of Daily Life of Highschool Boys is hilarious, even though they took the common route of having a school cultural event with girls taking up half the air time.  The funny thing is the girls did not behave nicely like all the other animes.  It actually reflected reality more accurately with the girls acting awkward and violent and possessive when sweets come into play.  I was actually disappointed that Yoshitake and Hidenori only got screen time as background characters cheering on in the crowd.  Tadakuni mistook two look alikes of his best friends twice throughout the episode.  Seems like he needs a pair of glasses.  Also, literature girl didn’t appear either.  At one point I thought she had her back to the camera at the reception but it was impossible to identify her.  Too bad I didn’t see a cameo of her at the festival.  Oh well.

It’s the Weekend!

Weekends are the best because you get to relax and watch more anime!

It’s time for my usual 10 minute short blog.  Right now it is 11:23 pm.  Let’s see how far I can get.

I watched Amagami SS+ episode 4 last night.  I have to say that this anime is unique for its story line since it is based off of a dating game.  The main character Junichi switches girlfriends every two or so episodes but they are never in the same universe.  So it’s more like he exists in several parallel universes which equal a harem (but not really a harem) that transcends space and time limitations.  This episode displayed a long series of intimate moments of Junichi and his close childhood friends.  It was nice but “they were being cockblocked too many times” -Pw3age.  Also, I found that the girl had too little lines.  Yes in real life it is nice to have that intimate atmosphere, but when you have long periods of silence in anime entertainment, it ruins the entertainment value as it quite difficult/expensive to do these scenes with detailed expressions.  Scenes like this would be better in entertainment with live actors since they can actually portray the emotion with their facial expressions.

Then I also watched Zero no Tsukaima F episode 2 today.  Yes I was actually shocked that I did not commit to catching up with a show that I intended to watch…

No one will read this anyways

Huh our blog is still rundown as it has always been.  No big surprise there.  It seems that everyone stopped a long time ago since it was so time consuming to blog.  Every post was a long review and capturing the perfect picture from the anime also took a long time.

Hmm well I’m just bored right now so I am going to give myself 10 minutes to write about anything anime related that I had done today.

Let’s see… I watched Daily Life of Highschool Boys episode 3.  That was quite funny.  It seemed to have recovered a bit from the disappointment that is episode 2.  This week they brought out new gags and they introduced the female counterparts of the group of boys.  This tactic to somewhat return to the common theme  of daily life of highschool girls is somewhat disappointing since I was hoping for the producers to be able to pull of a great comedy with only guys in it, but sadly no.  I guess what is required to increase audience numbers must be done, after all anime girls receive more attention. e.g. K-On!, Haruhi.

Hmm… seems like that’s all I’ve got to say for today.

Sousei no Aquarion

The most significant thing in the whole series to me was…..

The Right HAND RULE!

 

In the show, understanding this Vector concept was necessary to transcend the third dimension.  This was one of the many deep concepts that showed up in Aquarion.

Hello?

Anyone here?

Hidan no Aria – 04

Hey guys! The fourth episode was not as action packed as the previous episode but it contained many elements of character history. This episode served more as a revelation and a teaser to the fighting scenes that will most likely come later.

Gun-kata. Reminds me of the movie Equilibrium.

Hidan no Aria – 03

Yay for the action packed episode. This episode covers most of chapter 3 in the light novel. The anime deviates a bit from the light novel, but in a good way that improves the plot.

An effect that is very similar to the one caused by the Poptart Cat.
