This brand has European romanticism flavor. You can find styles for up to 50% off like #1044. It’s a black strapless mini with extra tulle that kind of dangles down over your thighs.
Fans of Dragon Ball Z should be pleased with character models and backgrounds. The developers used cel-shading to duplicate the look of the series. When playing Budokai 3 you actually get the feeling of interacting with the cartoon(with much less dialog mind you). The presentation is decent all around, though mostly consists of drawings taken from the Dragon Ball Z series.
First, there’s the matter of natures. Each Pokemon has a nature that will boost a certain stat and lower another. Taking this into consieration, a Pokemon can have a stronger Attack stat and a lower Defense stat, for example. Going beyond that, there’s the matter of Effort Values, or EV’s. These stats are completely under the hood and slowly boost your Pokemon’s stats, depending on which critters you slay. It’s entirely possible to go through the game knowing nothing about these, because you’re never told about them unless you personally decide to look for them.There are many more things, such as physical vs. special attacks, status attacks, Individual Values (IV’s), and more that people take into consideration when battling Pokemon on a slightly more serious level.
N: IE, looks normal although somewhat crippled. IE won’t play some Flash and other videos. N requires an external program to play YouTube. It comes with Windows Media Player, which doesn’t stream YouTube. So it also comes with TCIMP (Core Player), a popular video player that allows streaming. I tried to fast forward through “Nosferatu” on YouTube, and the player locked up, requiring ALT-CTRL-DEL to end the program.
Pre Tear is about a girl who gains magical powers and has to fight monsters with tentacles. I don’t really know why I like this show so much but if you’re looking for something fluffy that talks about family rather than boring old friendship then this is your thing, plus douche-bag love interest!
Recently, I ran across the book called How to Draw Manga: Making anime series when I was in Hastings book store. This was a jewel of a find and I wasn’t even aware of its existence in the series. It’s rare that you find anything that is specifically about the Japanese animation process. It takes you all the way through the process with nice explanations and examples. There are pictures of a real production in the works and the guys and gals using the old animation equipment. A lot has changed in Anime with computers but a lot is still the same in regards to the workflow and the spirit of making animated films.
We purchased some items from the vendor booths for souvenirs for the girls. Items for sale vary from pins, buttons, stickers, posters, paintings, trinkets, accessories, hats and many more. Nothing could top the day than watching the concert of LM.C, a Japanese rock (J-Rock) band at the Civic Auditorium located across the street. The show lasted from 7:00pm through 9:00pm. The next day, we came back for the interview (Q&A) and autograph signing by the band.
