Well, that's...interesting

Warning: NSFW

かのこん 立体おしりマウスパッド ちずる (キャラクターグッズ) ソル・インターナショナル マウスパッド かのこん

It's an oppai mousepad. No, that's not an accurate name.

It's one of those mousepads with a wrist-rest. It's quite ergonomic, takes a lot of strain off your wrist when mousing around.

But whatever. Why not spice things up a little. A little lower than the 'oppai'.

I'm pretty sure it's one of those '3 Dimensional' mousepads. I could very well be wrong, the picture isn't very good IMO (not that I was looking for too long >.>)

Rei Izumi x Mabinogi

無料オンラインゲーム マビノギ - Fantasy LIFE!

Just browsing around, I found a bunch of cute wallpapers. They're of Mabinogi characters drawn by Rei Izumi! How awesome is that?

It seems I can't direct link to the download page, so I'll provide instructions.

1. Roll over the tab that says ライブラリ
2. Move down and click on 壁紙
3. Scroll down to the 第1回 : 依澄れい section. It's hard to miss.
Select your resolution and download! There are a bunch of other nice wallpapers there too.

I've only played Mabinogi a little, and it's okay, but it's mostly the art that gets me. :)

Tales of Symphonia OVA (Vol.4)

My girlfriend is awesome :3 Love you Kat-chan

She got my the Tales of Symphonia OVA (Volume 4, but that's okay X3)

It's the Exsphere edition, so it came with a nice book (which I think is the script) and an extra disc. I haven't watched it yet, but I'm sure it's grand :)

Hooray :) Good day

Here's some of that narrated manga

And a bunch of Panyo Panyo Di Gi Charat

Blackouts all day

Wow, how exciting. The electricity was out all day for what seemed like the whole block, maybe even a little further. Even the streetlights were off.

It was exciting and scary at the same time. It's quite fun to be running around in the dark looking for flashlights and candles and trying not to burn yourself while lighting the candles.

We played blackjack all day, my siblings and I, since there wasn't much else to do. Didn't do all too well, good thing we weren't betting real money.

Good thing I wasn't doing anything too important either. It was a cold day though, looked like it was gonna rain, so no going outside. Cooped inside with no electricity, some may ask how they would survive.

Whatever, I had fun. I wouldn't wish for it again, but if it did happen, no worries.

Happy Valentines day from Hatsune Miku!


A very cute 15 second video I found on the frontpage of Nico Nico Douga, just in time for Valentines day (actually, I think it's Valentines day in Japan right now).

Enjoy :) I hope everyone has a good St.Valentines day

Pre-Valentines celebration

So yeah, had a great day with Kat-chan X3

She was so sweet and baked me a big batch of brownies :3 they had those colorful chocolate candies in them.

I feel kinda bad, I only bought her a box of chocolates and a teddy bear. I took her out to a cafe (Panera) for lunch :3 and then got her a milkshake from the Coldstone Creamery.

I wish I got a little more time, but I was a little rushed after school. That's okay.

It's too bad that Kat-chan is busy tomorrow, I really want to spend more time with her :3

Joy! Pangya!


It's official. Ntreev America has picked up Pangya, so we will still have Pangya to play! The announcement also talks about efforts to migrate existing accounts over, so I won't lost everything! There's still hope!

Hopefully hackers will stay away, or at the very least Ntreev will take better care of Pangya. Maybe actually update the anti-hacking system.

It looks like it picks up where OGPlanet leaves it, so hooray for that. It should be a pretty smooth transition into the new PangyaUSA!

My current desktop

Which is gonna change in about an hour, but I was encouraged to do this, and it is quite fun.

And just to get an idea of how many backgrounds the wallpaper changer scrolls through

And counting. Enjoy :D

Goodbye Albatross18

Play 18 Final Holes With Your Friends
Albatross18 Announcement

How lame, it looks like the rumors about A18 closing down are true. It looks like OGPlanet just didn't want to renew the license, so now there is no more PangyaUSA.

The only ones left are PangyaJP (where foreign IPs are banned), PangyaKR (I wish I could speak korean T.T), and PangyaGAO (french, english? Some kinda british, like FantaTennis). PangyaBR, PangyaPhilippenes, and some other servers I can't remember closed down. Maybe they couldn't pay for the license either.

And I was doing so well. I'll just have to move to another server I guess and start from scratch. I'll have no chance of getting premium items though. I was so close to Amateur E so that I could get Angel Wings.

I had my fun times on Albatross18, I made some good friends. I'll never forget Watchy, for he inspired me to keep on playing by giving me a nice boost when I first started. Also a shoutout to my guild, Angelic Pangya, because the one guild match I played was fun. Also to everyone else on my buddy list, thanks for helping me in the PSquare, playing some amazing games with me, teaching me the tricks to getting better, and overall making it a great game even though it was overrun by hackers and unfair economy.

What's really shameful is that OGPlanet doesn't seem to care about Alabtross18. They blatantly advertise their other games and are trying to get players to move there by hosting an event where you'll get nice items for making a new character on their other games. You know what? I don't care about the other games, I want to play Pangya.

Here's hoping that NtreevUSA or someone makes some efforts to try to preserve all of the account data and reopen the server eventually.

But until then, goodbye Albatross18.

Let's Go! TAMAGOTCHI #01

It's the Tamagotchi Anime! In horrible English dub!

The high pitch voices are surprisingly appropriate for this.

But wow, I didn't think it could happen, but it has. Now I shall go back to work, since I'm posting from school ^^;

Buncha cute Pangya PSP ads

♨냐냐's 고양이온천 : 재밌는데?;

Some fun little Pangya Portable promos. I wish I could read them, but the art is very pretty :3

I'm pretty sure this is the official artist's blog.

I still want this game ^^;

【THE POLICE】 Every Breath You Take (巡音ルカver.)‐ニコニコ動画(ββ)

A pretty good demonstration of Luka's English abilities. It's quite impressive, at least, I thought so. There was another video, but I thought this one was better.

So there you go, she's not called 巡音 (Round voice) for nothing.

Sorry, no youtube link.

EDIT: Google translate gave me "Round sound", so yeah

Domomanga : Article - TOKYOPOP

Domomanga : Article - TOKYOPOP

That's right. It's Domo-kun, starring in his own manga. Unfortunately, it's licensed by TokyoPop, so who knows where this will do. Maybe it'll be a big hit and a classic like Doraemon.

Just thought it was interesting.

Windows sucks D:

UNITY: Game Development Tool

It's an awesome looking application for game development. It appears to be a click and drag design with powerful integrated editors and the ability to import files from Blender and Photoshop (and many other programs).

Unfortunately, it's a mac only program. Yeah. It sucks. I wish I had a mac. Maybe a modbook pro or something.

It looks like quite the development tool, everything from maps to models to sounds to script. It would be awesome to use, if only I had a mac! D:<

So, unfortunately, I can' try it and review it. So sad.

The 2.5 version of the program is supposed to have windows support. I don't know what "coming soon" means. Hopefully they actually mean soon and not Valve's "soon".

Also, I tried searching. I can unpack the dmg file, but I can't run it.

It's really too bad. You can run windows on a Mac machine, but you can run OSX on a [normally] windows machine. That's why windows sucks.

I found something interesting to post about!

Google Earth

Check it! You can now explore the oceans in Google.Earth. It looks pretty awesome and immersive. Not too much right now, but I expect it to take off really fast.

It looks like the ocean images aren't taken by satellite, rather, it's 3D modeled from existing data. That limits it quite a bit, no way to make new discoveries, only look at old ones (in a new way).

Pretty cool though, they'll just keep expanding this technology. Can't wait to see what they'll do next.

There's a video about it on the linked page. I've yet to download it and play with it myself. Maybe combine it with the flight simulator.

It's February + Random Pangya

It's actually been February for a day and a little more, but whatever, I haven't posted in a while.

Here, a 2 minute collage of some screenshots of my 2 mains Kaz and Arin.

I'll find something interesting to post about soon.
