Mariokart 8 ONLINE

The online portion of Mariokart ios fucking awesome.You get to race online with one two, Four players per wii u. It''s nice. I had a ton of fun playing large groups of people. It's a blast that can hardly be matched and luckily runs pretty nice without any hiccups. Especially when it's free to play. I still play to this day. It's fun and I can't get enough.

So if anything else should be noted is that this game is FUCKING BULLSHIT! Are you fucking kidding again NINTENDO!

Here is a small list of the bullshit.

-The game has a handicap filter in it. No need for debating this. Ive got replays on MKTV that will clearly blow any doubters out the fucking water.

-Skill in the game is meaningless. Just because you can dominate the full game (50cc, 100cc, 150cc, mirror) all 3 star gold don't mean a god damn thing when little timmy is hacking or lagging.

-Hey got that favorite ride that was proven to get you all gold? Bullshit. Any character and any combination of vehicle  goes when it comes to online.

- Inconsistant winning. How do i dominate so extremely bad then cant get better than 10th place? Nintendo I've been around. Ive seen the same shit with your other titles.

-Bike hacking most of the crazy shit has been from bikes. They swerve back and forth, stop reverse and warp.

MARIOKART 8

Mariokart 8 Is the highly antisipated 10th or so game in the series. It was rumored to be the Wii U's savior but It really stands on its own. As a PIECE OF SHIT! Fuck Mariokart 8. Are you kidding me? I played all the way through 50cc,unlocked a bunch of characters that have garbage stats and and got the shocking revelation of nintendo bias. Why make a ton of charcters but only have 3 types? Heavy, medium, light? Same goes for the Vehiciles, tires and parachutes. Its the very epitome of illusion.

Who does nintendo make games for? Obviously kids, right? That is how they are still in business but the Wii U was made for ''the rest in mind'' You know the hardcore fans that moved on when the casual Wii was the top dog. They got a taste of that capatialism scheme and wanted more. Casuals arent loyal, its in the name. They are only looking for fun and then they move on. A tourist if you will. I can say that cause Im from Vegas.

Anyway enough cane waving, Mariokart 8 starts off with a bang. The game looks great in 1080p, has a really nice framerate (for the most part stays consistant.) has a killer control scheme, has a really nice selection of new and used levels and keeps you on your toes until you've gained the goldkart, goldtires and gold glider. The game makes you go for gold.

I started with the koopa troopa because im old and it was the best character in the old mariokart original. I enter 50cc and enjoy most of the levels. I noticed that Luigi isnt on my ass, um, at all. Like, shadow of his former self here. Graphics are amazing, 50cc doesnt give you much trouble. Unlocked lame unusable karts and wheels. Meh

100cc, this is more like it. Fast with a bit of resistance. Nintendo doing what they do best and easing you into 150cc. Had moderate problems towards the end trying to get all triple gold stars.

150cc The actual game has arrived and boy did they change it up. Nearly everyone else had gotten Luigi powers from the past. All Luigi got was a Meme for riding dirty. Suddenly the Koopa Troopa wasn't good enough. We were racing with the handdicapped. There were stats but nintendo never bothered to mention this. You have to stumble upon it. Thats right. Its bullshit.

We boiled it down to the Donkey Kong, Rocket car, tiny red wheels and clouds are your best set up to get 50cc 100cc 150cc and mirror,  all gold 3 star trophies.

Its all logic with a bit of luck, no problem.

Then I went into online multiplayer.

Manga: Nana to Kaoru 2008-2014

Nana to Kaoru Manga

NANA Chigusa. "Lucky" doesn't even decribe Kaoru

Kaoru is a 17-year old virgin who has a SM fetish. He always dreams about a SM relationship with his childhood friend Nana. One day Kaoru's mom decides to hide all his SM toys so he'll study for a change, by asking Nana to hide his toys. Nana finds the leather one-piece that Kaoru bought and tries it on but she accidentally locks it and doesn't have the key! Nana to Kaoru scores very high on my reading-list and I recommend this to anyone who likes romance manga but wants something different than the often too-much-stretched struggle for a couple to get together, instead skip to the exciting part of a relationship and at the same time stay within the boundaries of ecchi manga, not hentai. Yes, NANA TO KAORU is a Maverick one!!!

I sumbled upon this when Anime News Network mentioned that BLACK LABEL was coming to a close. I had no idea what was going on so i looked into it. NANA to Kaoru is a manga series that came out in 2008. I'd had read the first couple issues and then forgotten about it. Here it is now April 2014 and I learned that the series is still going. YES

Nana to Kaoru Ch 1-104 (still running) Main

Nana to Kaoru : Black Label Vol 1-4 (coming to a close) Side

Nana to Kaoru Asashi 1-44 (still running) Side
The beautiful Tachi and Nana

I have now read all the way through the main series. The scanned version stops when the two are about to get a new collar. DAMN!

In my opinion the main series has been the best. I have looked and it seems the series has not been picked up in North America.

Nana Chigusa: Next door neighbor to KAORU, Top student, parents divorced, both never around send money to NANA. She becomes Kaoru's main SUB (submissive)

Kaoru Sugimura: Next door neighbor to NANA. Lower student, has mother lost Father. Completely into BDSM. Becomes a DOM over time. (dominant)

Tachi Ryouko: Athlete. Hard body, Tan. Kaoru meets during his jogging days. She stumbles upon the main characters "breathers" Falls in love with Kaoru. Insists on doing more breathers with them. She becomes the second SUB (submissive)

At first I read through to find that the two characters relationship was cute enough to follow. Then Tachi Ryouko came into it. She is why I followed the rest on through. This series has a bit of a rush to it. When reading it there are literally mental sessions to go though. Each "breather" that is held by It is a form of break that NANA needs to escape being relied on. NANA is the class president. Top student among all.



 

One Punch Man

Manga: Tsumi Ni Nureta Futoshi (Two Soaked in Sin)

 SUMMARY This tale of forbidden fruit is ripe with angst and taboo. Nineteen year old college girl Kasumi is traveling in Italy after a painful breakup. In Rome, she meets a handsome Japanese man and, knowing nothing about him, not even his name, she has a one-night stand with him. There should have been no chance of them meeting again, but when Kasumi gets back to Japan, she learns that fate has played a cruel trick! The man she slept with was Yoshiki...her younger brother!! And that's only the start of it...
Kasumi x Yoshiki
MY THOUGHTS : I found this title on accident surfing around looking at random Manga to read. I stumbled upon a damn emotional gold mine. For the record I'm not into incest but I am open minded enough to see how it can be an issue in life as a hardship and something a lust of the uncontrolled. I've got family that are first cousins and are loved, respected and down right hated. In real life your family, your blood is nothing attractive unless there is something deficient in that person/yours mind, psyke whatever you want to call it. Its justified only by the two who attract meaning they were defiecient in some other area. That's my take and what I've had to deal with. Love is an unstoppable force that moves us more than anyother emotion or feeling.

Yoshiki X Kasumi
Love cannot truly be defined. It's whats comes from the action or the result that is the most interesting thing to me.

 
Sibling Passion
I am not interested in incest but the idea has come up in anime and manga and has driven me to read and collect such things over time. Koi Kaze was one of my anime titles that has to do with incest. Though its more of a age difference incest. It deals with the same problems. What will the people around you think, say or do. Your family is the one who this inflicts on the most. The shame felt. The loss of future. It must be the same as when you tell your parents that you are attracted to the same sex. Though I wouldn't buch it up together now a days. Our societies are much more open to a gay and lesbian cultures than they were in say 1999. Incest has a whole other element to it being that there is a slight chance that you could live a normal life. Get married and have normal children.The other percentage being true hell when everything thing you do is wrong or shunned or denied because you are siblings. Most of it was frowned upon after what we learned from royalty. Trying to keep blood in the family. Their results were very unforgiving.

Yuka still can't believe her kids are in love
Inbreeding has been going on since the beginning of time. Depending on your beliefs or theories of how humanity has came to be, Incest has been apart of that at some point in time. So this is all more of a social taboo rather than me lumping gay and lesbian ideas in there. The anime Red Garden also has a sad incest twist at the end. Old boy was also tale of incest. Anyway......

Kasumi is such a troublemaker.

THE MANGA: It starts out about a girl who has gone to Rome after breaking up with a guy. She wanders town and into a excavation site. Accidentally steping and breakeking what sound like a vase cracking She is yelled at by a Japanese man in Italian. Kasumi calls him rude sees what she has done, then leaves. The next day she encounters the man again. He is washing windows. They spot eachother through the window. Turns out he lost his part time job and the excataion site because it He instists that she buys him lunch. The two have food. While eating the stranger says the wrong thing which upsets Kasumi. She then runs off. The stranger notices that she ran down a bad area and gives chase. Calling out "Wait!" He catches Kasumi and tells her that she is in a dangerous area, that there are thieves that prey on tourist here. At that moment two robbers comes barreling their way. Kasumi and the stranger are cornered. he jumps in front of her and tells the theives that he has no money. The robbers want the girl. The stranger does not back down. The stranger gets beat until people who hear the scuffle show up and scare away the robbers. Kasumi thanks the stranger.
The stranger then holds Kasumi in his arms and says "you are so troublesome I can't let you go. They then passionalty make love.

It flashes forward to Kasumi with her mother at what looks to be Japan. Her mother is a business woman who is very busy overseas. She has been divorced for 15 years. She tells Kasumi that she is back because of Kasumi's father. Kasumi's father has died and that they must attend the funeral.. She also tells her that Kasumi has a sibling that has been living with the father. Shocked at the news that she has a sibling the two look through some photo albums for the sibling finding only one. a little girl who called Kasumi "big sister". At the funeral Kasumi sees the old house that she grew up in and the trees she used to play neear. She then starts to remember the sibling she would play with. She looks near the tree and sees the stranger from Rome.
He calls out "Kasumi!"  Kasumi's mother then walks up and says I'm glad you've been introduced this is Yoshiki. Yoshiki is your sibling Kasumi. Kasumi is shocked.

Back at the apartment Kasumi's mother insists that the two should stay in this apartment. That She has to go back overseas. Kasumi freaks out about it saying that Yoshiki would never......"I'm fine with it" Yoshiki says and there begins the first chapter of Tsumi Ni Nureta Futoshi.

I started on the second chapter because I figured the first chapter was already wrapped up from the summary. I sat down around 8pm and read for about 12 solid hours getting to chapter 38. I had assumed that that was the end and It was going to be a quick love story. I was wrong. I searched around and found that chapter 39-50 had been translated as well. I spent even more time reading until it was nearly noon. I get to chapter 50 and do i find? It ends. The translation stops right as Kasumi gets taken away. My heart breaks. It's unfair. I didn't know what I was getting into.

The manga started in 1999 and ended in 2005 according to the books. the internet says different. Strangly I can't find much on this story. Not many English speakers have read this or even heard of the series. the translation i was following was very good as in the emotional rollercoaster it put me through was easy enough to follow but when it stopped it was like my heart just sank. Stricken with grief I finished out the remainder of the manga in raw format. I know enough to to what was happening so that i could finish the manga.
Finally

The Ending is as they have put bittersweet. What else could it have been. This is much different than some of the shoujo stuff I have read. A lot of it lovy dovey a lot sad a lot funny but Tsumi Ni Nureta Futoshi showed me or rather Kitagawa Miyuki has shown me that shoujo manga can be more than just girly romance fluff, it can be more powerful than any other medium or what the mainstream is so mindlessly hooked on every season. She has made me a fan. Hopefully now that I've been woken up to this I can find more to see and feel like I never thought possible. If you get into this series and want to talk,  I'll be here. Don't hesitate to contact me.



THE CHARACTERS :
Kasumi : Main Sister
Yoshiki :Main Brother
Kazuki: Kasumi's childhood friend 15 years
Kyoko: Yoshiki's friend 15 years
Yuka: Kasumi's and Yoshiki's Mother
Andou-Ren: Yuka's assistant

 In Japan as of Vol 16 she has sold over 450 million copies of the manga (all volumes). It is now 2014 and I get to go back and read all her great stuff. Chapter 51 of the online manga translation should be out in a couple days. It is being translated as of April 11 2014. I can't wait to fully take in the rest in English.
This is the big one.


Kasumi says earlier on that She could have left and never seen him again but she chose to face it. She chose to face HELL for the love she had found in Yoshiki. Which is very powerful stuff.

Kasumi X Yoshiki Happiness
I don't want to give away the end but it ends with the two looking back at this picture.I sat and read all 3500 pages in one sitting. It wasn't easy and emotionally damaging but I loved every minute of it. I'll revisit it again and again until I get my fill. I'm waiting for the scan translations to continue with ch 51.  It is currently on route.

There is a ton of explicit situations that can give a knee jerking reaction. I came into this series desensitized to it all. I've seen some bad shit. It did get into my head about Kasumi sleeping around so much. Yoshiki hears of it but ignores it until he witnesses Kasumi and Ren in the tub and hears from her mouth that she wants more. He then exclaim's what he heard "You do fly to any Man...." Wow. What the hell. Kasumi's eyes had never opened so wide. This is taken from context though. You'd have to know what was going on. It's fucked. These two siblings are put through Hell.

I'll liken the sibling situation to the end of BERSERK, the end of MONSTER and the rush felt from Death Note. They go though so much that my heart ached at one point in time. Not sobbing or a good cry, actual heartbreak anguish. It still lingers as I went and made this blog post. I'm lovin it though.

END
 
That last half is what i got out of the raw. Only by the translation will we have the actual end.
It looks to me like Yoshiki died  but he held her in his arms and they kissed at the end. But the Burnt passport and the fact the don't show the body in the morgue is proof enough to think he is alive. Then again he is on the grave side of the bars. Whatever. It's def an odd way to end such a great series of novels. If I were to fully learn japanmese this is the kind of work I would be doing. This series is only 9 years old now. Hopfully some one takes interest in the future. Stranger things have happened.

I seen on Amazon.com that It was licensed in French. Amazon has 15 volumes of the Manga. I was thinking the best I could do would be to get the French version and backwards translate to them all to English. That is rough though and would only get us a bit further in the story. If the french publisher Akiko had not gone bankrupt I would have had the means to translate them all. I dream of the day I get to understand the story better. I will read through the whole series a few more times to fill in the highlights.

I read this on Manga updates

"From volume 9 to the ending the main focus of the series is shifted to their mother's (Yuka) efforts to separate them, the siblings eventually become so feed up with their predicaments that they reveal their relationship to the guests of their omais right in front of the church, trying to break their marriages with Ren & Kyoka, but their mother still won't allow them freedom; the kids secretly agree to meet in Rome to escape from it all. When Kasumi arrives there she can't find Yoshiki, and gets contacted by the police with the message "we need you to verify the identity of a corpse". Kasumi suffers greatly while gathering strength to even see the corpse, sulking in denial... Funerals for Yoshiki are held in Rome and Kasumi breaks up all ties with her mother & every body else, wanting to stay in Rome permanetly.

As some of you my already have guessed, in the aftermath of the service & when everybody is gone, Kasumi was still suffering about this in the place where she first meet with Yoshiki, at which point he shows kissing her, revealing how he used some aquitances to fake his deadly accident, with that said they finally embrace each other enjoying the knowledge that now no one is standing between them, Yoshiki doesn't miss the chance to kindly whisper "I love you". The next scene is a portrait of their marriage, being exhibited as propaganda in a store that sells bridal items. "

Thats what I figured That they got away from everyone so that they could love each other forever. Fantastic.

It's been awhile....

It's been 2014 for some time and I've been busy. The new PS4 and Xbox ONE systems are here and the new anime series are in full swing. Nearly 120 series have been announced and it's only April.

Ani-Com? Never heard of them.
 AnimeJapan has just recently left leaving us to wonder exactly how many fans can put up with all these unwanted series. How they keep getting funded for new shows and how exactly am i to watch all of this without downloading everything? Wow. An anime fanatic surely has their work cut out for themselves. There is no way I can go back to the real world after this year alone.
Eren Jager. The cool "chicken wuss" who is only after his mother's killer. Completely ignoring the ultra hot Mikasa. (who has been keeping him alive without him knowing.)
 Attack on Titan is getting ramped up in both countries. They just announced that 2 compilation movies are in the works that sum up the 26 episode Attack on Titan (Shingeki no Kyojin) anime series. It's well deserved although fans such as myself want more of the series to be continually produced. The series ended on a very unfair cliffhanger that may be marketing genius but was a knife in the back of the consumer who was invariably shut off to any emerging answers at the series climactic highpoint.
Ora-Ora-Ora-Ora-Ora-Ora-Ora-Ora- ORA!!!!!
 Hell freezes over as the popular 3rd season of Jojo's Bizzarre adventure : Stardust Crusaders is being animated. Good bye OVAs. Hopefully this gives weigh to the future series that are so much more sinister and unbelieavable than the begining series. I would kill to see JBA 5th gen Vento Aureo animated.
Aoki Uru 2014
Blue Uru was announced by a legendary anime company called Gainax. Its a previously dead project that somehow got funding and focus from the new age. It's the sequel to Royal Space Force : Wings of the Honnemise. This will be a must watch only because I am a diehard Gainax fan. Unfortunately the reality of it is that now talentless Gainax is so desperate for something to make they went back to a project that was dropped in the company's infancy. Back when chaos ruled and corporate funding had control over what they did. This will really be interesting to see because the people who originally made Gainax,  GAINAX..... are long gone.

Blue Uru was their project. The group that started Gainax after the Daicon Films. It could only be good through the team of that time and their unusually sporadic production structure. There is no way that the Gainax of today could walk away from this movie without looking foolish. It was not their vision to begin with but with a disc full of unused art (Frozen Uru) regardless of the stupidity I have hope that these guys will bring out a show stopper that will bring new fans to the table. After all Gainax has a ton of tricks up their sleeve as the Otaking would have me believe from their past endeavors. Gainax is my fave.
Oh yeah.... Those.
 Interesting Artwork has been found in Osamu Tezuka's locked drawers that his grand daughter recently found. Wild and crazy was the father of manga. I'm sure he has more hidden somewhere.

I'm loving this year so far.. Really can't complain as there is so much to do, see and play I really don't have the time.

PS4 vs Xbox One vs WiiU

The next generation of systems is upon us and its going to be a war. I am hardcore so.... I will own every system, but not without an annoyed (and somewhat disturbed) opinion. I have lived through most of the valid console wars and I have some words about the new systems. 

If you ask why they are grouped together, that's because the were made in the same factory.
Sony revealed the Playstation 4 two months prior. Well, they revealed the CONTROLLER not the system. The system had to wait until 2013's E3 event. Of course speculation and bullshit would circulate for 2 months. Two long months and that brought the record number of mach ups or prototype pics of the system ever. Numerous websites would throw their creative cards in for a big circus of random supercrap. It,  to say the least,  got the fuck out of hand! Once E3 hit, the system was...MEH! Nothing like what the fans would dream of. Sony even mosaiced the system to leave us guessing about a black square.

Ta Da: the fucking PS4 and eye toy x. AKA 3D picture taker and 1080p movie recorder and Wii move mote toblerone radon detector. OH yes.
 It was rumored that Xbox's new console was going fully "digital rights media" restricted. Everything from how you play to the constant check ups were going to be integrated. Going a route that all of us seriously questioned on the spot. You can not call it a console if you cannot play used games, borrow, trade or play offline. It was an insult to the senses. They better say something at E3 or Microsoft is going be hurting.
$150 more than ps4? Is it because of the new media Blu-ray microsoft had to jump to?


The Xbox One is FINALLY shown and its priced at $499. With the help of cloud and a handful of exclusive titles MS is sure to be a contender. The PS4 system is finally shown at $399. Whoa. The crowd roared when PS4 really got dirty and had a behind the scenes vid about How PS4 can play USED GAMES. This is how you share,  they said. Fantastic. No DRM.

Well PS4 has won without saying. There are far too many pluses to ignore. 100 bucks less, plays used games,  doesn't spy on us WOW. Microsoft has seriously fucked up and gets what it deserves. ............OH wait. Then Xbox One suddenly does what we have all been waiting for.  THEY TURN AROUND AND SAY NO DRM AND CAN NOW PLAY USED GAMES!!. YOUR SYSTEM IS NOW CALLED THE "180"! Holy shit,  the stupidity is getting worse by the day. The ones who make the consoles we love have all gone and are now replaced by the very casual crowd catering bullshit morons that have saturated the system wars into something of a throwback joke rather than an entertainment conglomerate of success.

Maybe you can hang on till people give a shit.
 Oh yes and nintendo showed a few first party titles that are on a horrible hd/single player system with only one control per $399 purchase, and maybe two must have exclusives.  The new consoles are more important andwill get the full attention . Sadly WiiU will go the way of Virtual Boy.
