東方地霊殿 ~ Subterranean Animism

April 30, 2008

Oh my, how I’m so happy right now! Touhou 11: Subterranean Animism!!! ^^

From just the few screenshots I’ve seen. This is going to be epic. It’s looks so pretty. The backgrounds look splendid. And it seems the main heroines have returned. But I can’t exactly make out what seems to be a doll with Marisa! *shock* If the demo is to show, apparently you will have two power bars each maxing at 6.0 and 8.0 respectively. Either that or there is some sort of power level max that changes over the course of the game. Perhaps difficulty? Just guesses… Well the demo will be selling for 300円 at Reitaisai 5 I believe.

Here are a couple of screenshots of the game…

Touhou 10.5: Scarlet weather Rhapsody Updated Demo

April 29, 2008

Tasogare Frontier has just released an updated version the demo for Scarlet Weather Rhapsody. The Title Screen has been updated and to me it has more of an IaMP look and feel. Uses really nice sepia tone for some menus. There are other various minor changes with gameplay. A three-stage story mode played out by Reimu has also been added and is set prior to the events of SWR. Also, configuration and netplay options are now available.

While on the topic of Scarlet Weather Rhapsody, Touhou Reitaisai 5 is May 25th and that is when the official release date has been declared. Hooray! It’s finally coming out! ^^

Anyways, you can download the new demo at Tasogare Frontier’s website, at Gensokyo.org, or at mizuumi.net.

American Anime Fan Disappears in Japan

April 22, 2008

Taken from AnimeNewsNetwork…

College student traveled on one-way ticket, was last seen at Hokkaido inn

21-year-old Skye Lynn Budnick, a student at Central Connecticut State University and member of the university’s anime club, has disappeared after traveling to Japan on a one-way ticket that she bought without informing her family. She left the United States on April 1 and was last seen on April 7 at an inn in Noboribetsu, a city on Japan’s northern island of Hokkaido. Budnick’s family traveled to Hokkaido to search for her and have been working with the United States Embassy, the United States Consulate in Sapporo, and local police. However, her sister, Megan Budnick, returned home Friday without finding any additional information about the woman after her April 7 stay at the inn. The sisters’ mother, Susan Budnick, remains in Japan to continue the search.

According to the Record-Journal newspaper of Meridien, Connecticut, Budnick left her home in the nearby town of Southington with only her laptop and about US$800 in cash. Several days after she disappeared, her family logged into her email account and found her travel itinerary and a suicide note that she composed, but did not send. Budnick’s friends and relatives mentioned that she had been an anime fan since middle school, and that she was generally quiet and did not have many friends. She had recently failed several classes, and reportedly, only remained in school to be allowed to participate in the activities of the anime club.

The United States Consulate in Sapporo has asked that people with more information on Budnick’s whereabouts to call (011) 641-1115 (from overseas, call 81-11-641-1115).

Whatever, enjoy the videos. If you have seen these before, then enjoy them again… ^^

Higher Quality Youtube Videos

April 13, 2008

Here’s an older trick I learned from Mr. Safety of SMP Films.

Since Youtube has crappy quality videos, everything really looks like a blur.

To somewhat fix this, add “&fmt=18” to the end of the url.

This will change the video quality from “Standard” to “High.” You can also notice the little television symbol next to the number of views also. This allows you to change it back to “Standard” if you so happen choose to.

Just try it. It works to some extent. I could see the difference…

You can actually see a big difference in this Phantasy Star Online: Blue Burst video…

Well this is my random thing of the day. Hope it helps and enjoy…
