[Tenshi_MKII] Fate/Zero Review (Light Novel).

Fate/Zero is truly what a Holy Grail War would actually be like, not like the fifth war where we have wimpy Shirou and his antics. As you all may know, this is written by Urobuchi Gen who also brought you the healing awesome anime, Puella Magi Madoka Magica. I will try my best to minimize the spoilers. If you do not want to be spoiled at all, just ignore this post and wait for the anime or simply buy the novel.

The story is broken into many parts, focusing more on Emiya Kiritsugu’s past and his participation during the war. The story starts off with Kiritsugu’s past, how he became a magi and how he got into the war. All I can say is that it was not a very happy childhood. Since it’s written by Urobuchi Gen, it contains quite an amount of blood and gore.

There were many wtf moments, like why Saber can drive any automobile without having to learn, a particular servant that can use anything as a Noble Phantasm(F-16s?). It also explains how Gilgamesh became Kirei’s Servant, how did Kirei became Rin’s guardian and a few other stuff. Oh right, loli Rin and Sakura do make an appearance too :3.

Overall, it has been an enjoyable read but took me really a very very long time to read, my Japanese is really not up to par and with Urobuchi Gen’s fetish for difficult Kanjis, made it longer…

If you feel like giving it a try: Book 1.

If anyone missed it: Trailer for Fate/Zero

God bless Seikaisha for publishing this awesome novel.

[LianYL] Last Of The Loot At China Square Central

Well basically, I’m clearing out the last of my figurines at China Square Central flea market tomorrow. Included are Busou Shinki Wave 1-8 with some of the models already cleared by a friend. You can also find the Queen’s Blade Yuumil PVC along with several others.

I need to get rid of these goods fast so expect them to be at a price way lower than original retail.

The flea market booth will last for 3 Sundays. Figurines for tomorrow, entire manga collection next Sunday and whatever that’s leftover on the following weekend. I’ll also be putting up a box of freebies each week for anyone interested in grabbing. The freebie box will only be accessible to customers who purchase from me before 1pm. Thereafter it’d be free-for-all.

Freebies this week include:
Anime posters
Some random anime VCDs
Random games that I bought on impulse never to play
Couple of doujin books

Come on down if you’re interested.

P.S. I heard Ito Noizi artworks aren’t as desirable as before. But if there’re any remaining fans left, I have both her commercial artbook releases and 2 of her super rare doujin artbook releases up for sale. You can grab them all for $120.

Next Week Preview:
Freebies – ODEX DVDs, Random books, old school manga sets
Sale – Little Busters First Print Limited Edition, some Comp H’s game merchandise, doujin music CDs etc.
