Blog 188 > Kanons, Pirates & Bloodbaths

Greetings, my friendly neighborhood Toyboxers! Welcome to yet another weekly mega-broadcast from the Toybox! But beware. This time, I should warn you of the more bloody and sexy nature of the topics which swirl in the digital waters below, lol. Are you ready? Ready for this four-part monster post? Messy junior-high blood battles? Sticky flesh-on-flesh pirate hunters? Snowy high-school Kanon girls? And Disney-bioengineered teen idols? Well, if you are, and you ignore my warnings, I salute your bravery. And your lack of morals, haha! Just kidding. I truly welcome you. I’m not sure if I’ll have another “Question of the Week”, but who cares? Just grab some utterly buttery popcorn, take another deep breath, and enjoy the show…

Part 1 of 4. Junior High Bloodbath. Ah, finally! After several *years* in my Netflix DVD rental queue, and after last month’s enthusiastic prodding by Meimi132-chan, I finally watched the controversial Japanese film “Battle Royale” (2000) this past Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday. Am I the last otaku to watch this? LOL, here’s the iconic logo for the “Battle Royale Survival Program”. Such a blood-red on death-black design!

In fact, crossing back-and-forth several times between her post and mine, here’s our blog-versation more than a week ago.

Meimi132 @xJaymanx: And seriously? Not one Beat Takeshi? Ever? You have to have seen Battle Royale!! Haven’t you?? He’s in that….not technically his movie is it? I dunno… If you haven’t seen that yet, you NEED to see it. NOW, go buy it or download it or whatever, just watch it! I’ve had it on dvd for 6 years+ (wow….long time… I was 13 when I got it lol…its an 18 in the UK lol, saw it on late night ch4 and loved it.) I am in dire need of a new copy actually, the center of disc 1 has cracked… still plays fine, but its cracked, which is the beginning of the end in DVD life terms…. Its cos I lent it to people… and they didnt take proper care of it…. otherwise it would be in perfect condition, like all my dvds…. I wouldn’t buy a DVD unless I really loved it… or it was uber-cheap in a sale lol, and even then, it deserves to be looked after, like any posession, ne? Oooooo I seem to have gone on a tagent also lol. DVD rant lol.

xJAYMANx @M-chan: But funny u should mention “Battle Royale”. That’s been on my Netflix DVD rental queue for ages, if not years! But not seen yet! Okay-okay, I’ll bump it up above my Jackie Chan and lorry-loads of anime, lol… When u buy a new copy, maybe there’s a Special Collector’s Edition out? Ahh, just checked Amazon~ Yes, there is! Perfect! There’s an Uncut Special Edition! For hardly 10 quid. Now what did I just say? ^o^

Meimi132 @xJaymanx: And you do need to watch Battle Royale lol, wouldn’t worry so much about the second one, but the first one is awesome. Shuya Nanahara is played by the same actor who played Raito Yagami in Deathnote. Cos he is one of the only Japanese actors I remember alot he was my first choice for Raito when I heard they were making a DN movie lol.

xJAYMANx @M-chan:Right-right, I know, I know, lol. Already bumped “Royale” from #10 to #1 in my rental queue (might’ve been #50 at one time, haha). So depending on how fast I watch and return my current Jackie Chan DVD, they should ship “Royale” to me in about a week. Good enuff? Ahhh, I’ve seen those “Death Note” films, so I should easily recognize that *wimpy* (yup, wimpy) Shuya by face, if not by name, lol. Hehe, nice… Special Edition, FTW!

So here’s the *lucky* junior-high class chosen for the Program.

And without spoiling it too much, here are a few scenes from the first 19 minutes of the film. Just a bloody taste of this Japanese cult classic!









Like I said, that’s only in the first 19 minutes of the film! Freaking shocking! Especially for me. I threw the DVD into the player without any expectations. Since I’m familiar with the term “battle royale” from my adolescent days of following pro wrestling, I thought it would be just like that. Just a bunch of people battling it out. Like simple hand-to-hand combat. That’s all. No blood, no death, no harm. Damn, I couldn’t be more wrong, lol. Yet as one who rarely watches these types of films, despite all that, I’m still giving this film 4 out of 5 stars! Bloody unexpected!

Part 2 of 4. Pirates of the Fornication. Beware! From ugly violence to utter sex, we enter the world of adult films, lol. Now as one who regularly downloads music, sci-fi and anime from the world wide web, the title “Pirates XXX” has popped up on numerous occasions. And favorably so. Whoa, curious! So why not download it? That was last December. After finishing “Battle Royale” this past Friday, I finally took a sneaking peek at “Pirates XXX” (2005). And while I’ve only seen the first half of it as I write this, if you pardon the expression, I was blown away, lol. If you choose to purchase the film (which I didn’t), here’s the stunning cover of the DVD below.

After watching the first hour, I was surprised by the big-budget quality for an adult film! None of that shaky home-video crap, lol. Plus, while maybe 90% of the total time in a typical American or Japanese AV (adult video) may be comprised of sexual acts, I’d say no more than 25% of “Pirates XXX” portrayed sex scenes. Definitely unusual! Yeah, of course, there were the usual set of bad actresses, but there were some pretty convincing even comedic actors too! And quite a few well-chosen extras to complete the look and atmosphere without requiring any sexual play. Not to mention the fairly decent use of ship-and-sea special effects! Yup, special effects, lol.

In fact, upon further research, I discovered that in 2005, “Pirates XXX” (Wiki) was the most expensive pornographic film in history. At a cost of over $1 million USD. And I admit, it really shows. Since then, it has earned dozens of awards (link NSFW) across all categories. “The best-selling, most award-winning adult film of all time, with over 40 international awards and 14 AVN Awards.” No wonder it’s one of the most celebrated adult films in history! There’s even an edited R-rated version, lol. After I finish this huge-ass mega-post, I should finish the second hour, hahaha.

But not only that, an even bigger sequel was released in 2008! And according to the “Pirates XXX” official website (link NSFW), the sequel “Pirates II: Stagnetti’s Revenge” (Wiki) cost ten times the previous budget! That means $10 million USD, obliterating the previous record of the first film! Do I sound impressed? LOL, who cares if I never saw Johnny Depp’s “Pirates of the Caribbean” trilogy? LOL, here’s the even-more-stunning cover of the DVD sequel below.

Damn, French-Vietnamese porn actress Katsuni (Wiki) below looks strikingly deadly in this official wallpaper. Can’t wait to see that one too, lol.

Wow, even if you’re not a fan of adult films, check out the blockbuster-level quality of the sequel’s trailer on the official website (link NSFW). Between the sex frames, notice the drama, humor, music and special effects! This definitely ain’t your grandpa’s porn anymore, lol.

Part 3 of 4. Gals of Kanon. Hahaha, time for the main event! We now jump from one form of adult entertainment to figures based on another form of adult entertainment! Triggered by yet another blog-versation with Meimi132-chan last week, I finally found some precious time to undertake a massive four-figure photoshoot with none other than the unforgettable girls of the “Kanon” adult visual novel and anime series.

Meimi132 @xJaymanx: You were going to do a Kanon photoshoot? But didn’t??? Do it! Do it now!!! The Koto Ayu is lovely, and cos it has Taikyaki it’s extra sweet. But the fact that the MF is from the op titles, and it looks soooooooo much like it, I can’t help but love it more. I usually love Koto figures most, but in Kanons case its gotta be MF.

Sorry, M-chan, but I gotta disagree, lol. Kotobukiya rules the “Kanon” series. Although I must agree that Max Factory’s red-headed “Makoto” is probably the sweetest of the bunch. Then again, the others aren’t too shabby either! In this snowy 63-shot photoshoot, let’s welcome my newly opened (and quickly reboxed) “Kanon” gals, haha. First, hopping along in her yellow snowcoat below, is little auburn-haired Ayu (Kotobukiya, 1/8th-scale), my 64th figure in August 2007.

Second, standing tall in her red short-skirted school uniform, is blue-haired Nayuki (Kotobukiya, 1/8th-scale), my 63rd figure in August 2007.



Hahaha, Ayu can’t seem to decide which way she wants to run!









Third, crouching quietly with her supernatural sword, is raven-haired Mai (Kotobukiya, 1/8th-scale), my 61st figure in July 2007. For some reason, the shape of her pose makes it a bit tougher to photograph. Artistically speaking, that is, lol.





Ah, three of the girls manage to gather together.






Finally, smiling in her blue jacket and red ribbons, is orange-haired Makoto (Max Factory, 1/8th-scale), my 74th figure in March 2008. Sweet, isn’t she?






Yeah, I know, couldn’t help it. The fan service is for my fellow Toyboxers! I swear!





Awww, this shot of Ayu with her taiyaki (below) is adorable.



At last! All four girls decide to pose together. Though Mai seems a bit protective, lol.











Nayuki casts an amused yet watchful eye, lol.



LOL, run away! Run away!








Okay Ayu, time to go home now! Let’s go!



Wow, that’s it! Out of 100+ original shots, these were the top-63 mesmerizing pics! Almost impossible to narrow it down further, lol. Don’t believe me? Then let me ask you this. Can you pick your top-10 favorites from the bunch? In only 10 minutes? LOL, exactly. Hmm, interesting. I didn’t prepare a “Question of the Week”, but if I had to find one immediately, here it is. Which are your top-3 favorite photos from this photoshoot? Simply hover or click to get the four-digit photo ID, hehe.

Part 4 of 4. Disney Genetic Lab. Whew! Almost done! Here’s the random topic of the week, lol. Last week, Coco-chan and I wandered into an amusing blog-versation involving cute idols, mecha pilots and creepy genetically-engineered clones. Especially if they’re all the same thing! Created by a Disney Genetic Laboratory! Hahaha!

Coco the Bean @xjaymanx: And yup, it was just a game until Xenoglossia. I think most of the game’s fans refuse to acknowledge the existence of the series because the characters didn’t stay true to the original, and the fact that they turned a game about cute idols into a story with angsty mecha pilots lol.

xJAYMANx @Coco-chan: Wait a sec~ Are u saying that cute idols aren’t automatically angsty mecha pilots? Not the same thing? Really? >_<

Coco the Bean @xjaymanx: Cute idols are probably all pilots working for a top-secret government agency. And are genetically engineered for it. Where do you think all the cuteness comes from? :O

xJAYMANx @Coco-chan: Hehe, thanx, I guess I have no choice. Gotta add it to my list! But your “cute idol, secret agent” theory, that might explain Miley Cyrus, right? Or Britney’s little sister is actually her bio-engineered clone? LOL!

Coco the Bean @xjaymanx: Disney stars are all genetically engineered!

And speaking of Miley Cyrus, it seems like everyone around me keeps bumping into her at restaurants. And it’s just her, no other celebrities. Maybe she has multiple clones?

xJAYMANx @Coco-chan: Hahahaha, I knew it! That is freakin’ hilarious! … Awesome. How? Where did u find this? If I remember in time, maybe I’ll add to my next mega-post…

Lo and behold, here’s the YouTube video of the not-so-secret Disney Genetic Laboratory! Don’t worry, both hilarious screenshots link to the same video, hehe.

Yup, Zac Efron was genetically engineered by Disney!

With that, I bid you adieu. Were you prepared for the more bloody and sexy nature of the topics presented? Did you enjoy the messy junior-high blood battles? Sticky flesh-on-flesh pirate hunters? Snowy high-school Kanon girls? And Disney-bioengineered teen idols? Hahaha, well, you’re braver than I thought! And less moral too, lol. Thanx for reading, watching and hopefully laughing. Don’t forget my last-minute “Question of the Week”, okay? And if you have any left, can I grab the rest of your utterly buttery popcorn?

  1. I watched Battle Royale a long time ago, and I might have missed the early part so I never saw that gore, maybe it got censored heh. I liked it though, especially an actress inside. Yeah it was brutal, but it also explored the psychology of people in such a situation.

    By the way, your RSS has not updated in my feeds for the longest time, ever since you shifted to double “x” I think.

    Panther´s last blog post > Kokoro by Joanne Hogg

  2. Even to this day, I still love watching BR for the gore. Who were your favorite characters? Mine were Mimura, Kiriyama, and Mitsuko :)

    I didn’t enjoy BR2 at all, though –;;;

    Lene´s last blog post > Stress relievers

  3. @Miko-chan: Hehe, I know! Totally unexpected. Yeah, Beat Takeshi was pretty hardcore, lol. What about the boobs? LOL, boobs are boobs, right?

    @Deathseeker: Haha, censoring is definitely possible. But if it was censored, if must’ve appeared on TV then? Ahh yeah, there was one hardcore long-haired chick who shot, sliced and even had sex to kill her opponents, lol. Nasty… Yeah, that’s right. The /toybox/ feed should be dead, but my /toyboxx/ feed should still be working since then. Just update your RSS with that path change. Good luck!

    P.S. Hey dude, condolences. Forgive my delay. With thoughts of unquantifiable life, unfathomable death and even the “hidden world”, I was uncharacteristically hesitant. If a simple reply would be sufficient. Or if I should save it for a discussion in a future post. I hope u don’t give up.

  4. Always good for another to enter the BR fold, shame on you for not watching it earlier tho!

    mmm katsuni, she does good stuffs. I watched a bit of Pirates…and I learnt that big budget porn is boring

  5. @Joe1991: Thanx dude. Hey, even if several years of other Netflix rentals came before it, at least I had it in my queue all that time! Haha, yeah, Katsuni. But that’s funny, it’s opposite with me. The amateur or backyard porn I’ve seen ain’t interesting to me anymore… Mostly. ^_^;

    @Lene-chan: Hahaha, of course you’d love the gore. You’re a FPS gamer after all! As for my faves, I still don’t know their names, lol. Who was that bleached kid with the laptop? What’s his name? And the main boy who became Yagami Light wasn’t too bad. As for the girls, that evil long-haired chick who had sex to kill her opponents, she was brutal! Damn! And the main girl with Light was cute, but not necessarily outstanding… Sorry, you’ll have to specify who belongs to which name, lol.

  6. You arent the only one who hasnt seen Battle Royale.I know what its about and everything but the movie is so goddamn cut over here that it isnt worth the rental/purchase.
    Maybe i should try to dl it somewhere.

    *cough*I know that Pirate movie*cough*
    I was impressed by the high quality aswell but honestly i dont like the girls in those movies.Way too fake “perfect” for my tastes.
    Pirates was a milestone for the AV tough!

    Ahh…Kanon…Wasnt really my cup of tea.Ayu annoyed the hell out of me^^;
    Out of all the Arcs i liked Makotos the best but girlswise i liked that ghosthunter the best. I love girls that kick butt^^

    Blowfish´s last blog post > Asuka: All grown up (NSFW)

  7. Oh man..don’t tell me you skipped the Max Factory Ayu!! That Ayu is gorgeous! Although I admit yours has a more dynamic pose, look like she is pilfering some tasty treats :)

    That Battle Royale thing…uumm not my sort of thing. I don’t like mindless killing. But I don’t dislike death in movies, it depends on the situation.

    PS – I forgot I need to give you my banner! I will tomorrow!

    lovelyduckie´s last blog post > Fumie (Edelweiss) Orchid Seed

  8. Hehehehe glad you finally finished it. I’m not one for uber-violent movies either(I was when I was 13 though lol). And as for Pirates of the Carribean movies… the first one is the best, the second and third are nothing compared to it, still entertaining, but they just couldn’t out do themselves after the first one. Great-great movie.

    OMG The Kanon pics!!! So much Kanon!! Auuuuu I want that Mai… and that Nayuki… I want them all… even the Ayu… with the Taiyaki!! Uguuu….. I still prefer the MF though. lol. Shame Koto didn’t make a Makoto too really. Then you could have the full Koto set.

    And LOL at the Pirate porno.
    As for buying first thinking later… I just don’t know… I am getting a £200 bursary in March…. so I can definately get them… but… but…. I wants her nowwww….

    Meimi132´s last blog post > Dollfie (of my) Dreams & 200th post

  9. @Jay: Aah, Mimura had the laptop and hacked the whole system. Kiriyama was the crazy guy who didn’t say anything throughout the whole movie, and Souma was the sickle girl that had sex with her opponents, only to kill them off x:

    Lene´s last blog post > Stress relievers

  10. ***ATTENTION TOYBOXERS*** Maybe I’m getting sentimental or something (Vegas has been raining all day), but I feel like saying thanx. One great thing about throwing together these mega-posts, is that I get to attack multiple topics at once, however randomly connected they may seem. And to get replies on so many layers is just icing on the multi-layered cake. Thanx again, guys and gals. Now back to my clever replies…

    @FlyingBlowfish: Really? Censored in Germany? Yeah, try to download it. Luckily, mine wasn’t edited. Or was it? Hahaha, there can’t be a bloodier version, can there?… Ahh, interesting reaction to “Pirates”. I’m fine with it whether they’re slightly imperfect, “fake” perfect, or “real” perfect. Don’t tell me u wish anime girls to be “less than perfect”, do u? Yeah, and “Pirates II” is an even huger milestone. But we’ll see how it plays out… Ah, I agree, with Makoto’s arc, my eyes definitely teared up the most. Next was Mai the ghost hunter or demon fighter. As for girls who kick butt, as long as it’s not *my* butt! Mostly, lol. ^_^;

    @Luckie-chan: Yup, I skipped the MF Ayu. While the angelic version is pretty, she isn’t energetic enough for me. And I loved her character because she was precisely dynamic. Running and laughing and of course, eating, hehe… Yeah, “Battle Royale” isn’t something I’d choose without someone’s recommendation. But if Meimi132-chan recommended it, why not? And overall, I think it was worth it. There’s a more profound psychological layer beneath the bloodshed. Friendship versus survival, etc. Besides, much of the blood splats were CGI anyway, lol… Hey, no worries, no hurries. Take your time. Here’s my banner.

    @M-chan: Hey, thanx to u! Luckily (and technically), no *limbs* were chopped off. I won’t spoil it beyond that, lol. Ah, I guess there’s another to add to my infinite list. “Pirates of the Caribbean”. And just like u said about “Battle Royale” (and Lene-chan agrees), the sequels don’t seem to be worth it, do they?… Hahaha, thanx! I knew you’d love these pics! Yeah, maybe someday Kotobukiya will create a Makoto. But it’ll be tough to beat the MF version. Indeed. Hehe, and glad u got a kick outta the “Pirates” porno. Oops, I mean AV, lol. I’m not used to big-budget porn, but I gotta admit, I’m impressed so far. Not necessarily with the sex (although Jesse Jane is a machine, lol), but with the actual story and comedic barbs. Such as the Captain Kirk speech patterns and eye-liner of the pirate hunter, lol. Classic! Wait, didn’t Johnny Depp also have eye-liner in his trilogy? Hehe… Hmmm, buying? Buying what? The dolfie? Or the “Pirates” porno? ^o^

    @Lene-chan: Ahhh, I gots it. Also finally looked up Wiki. So we both liked Shinji Mimura (laptop boy) and Mitsuko Souma (sickle girl)! But it’s hard *not* to like them since they played more vibrant, prominent roles in the film, didn’t they? Mimura’s full plan should’ve succeeded, dammit!… So here’s the real question: Since u still love BR to this day for the gore, would it be safe to say it’s a great “stress reliever”? LOL, better than a nap, eh?

  11. haha, to the Battle Royale. I enjoy the mindless blood bath as long as many people are dying in bulk and there’s gotta be dismemberment of something. If it’s something as weird as I don’t know holding hands and jumping onto the tracks on an incoming subway train while the Irish folklore music plays in the back, I am more like “WTF” than anything else.

    As for the Pirates movie, I’d have to say that that is one of the best looking porn movies in terms of quality AND they actually tried to include an actual plot. Bless those porn film makers hearts. I suppose they wanted to be different and break away from the backyard antics that tend to summarize the norm in porn flicks today. We’ve downloaded a bunch of stuff and there is constant advertisement of “Download XX this and that”. One caught my eye and my curiosity insisted on me knowing what type of plot was gonna be in this movie. Da Vinci Load. Cheesy, but it was pretty funny how it was a mystery. It’s good for laughs and I highly recommend the download. I mean, ‘clairvoyance of c–k’, lol.

    Not my fav photos, but ones that gave me a reaction:
    4325- Looks like she will fall flat on her face anytime
    4288 – Due to the pantsu being similarly colored to her skin, she looks as if she is not wearing anything at all
    4330 – ^Same reason. It’s lolicon heaven

    I <3 Disneyland. I hate Disney Channel.
    You’re right – it was a fairly meaty post. I’ve posted since then, lol.

    OneandonlyJem´s last blog post > Long over due haul=byproduct of procrastination

  12. @Jem: Hey! Hope u caught my sappy “Attention Toyboxers” in my immediate comment above, lol. Haha, I knew u’d get a kick outta this slack-and-burn post. Yeah, I finally watched “BR”, the last otaku to watch it, lol. WTF? What movie has Irish folk tunes playing in the subway? Definitely not NYC’s subway system, lol.

    “Bless those porn filmmakers’ hearts”? Now *that’s* the first time I’ve ever heard *that* one! LOL! Yeah, that’s what I mean, the backyard and garage stuff is getting old, rusty and slimy… But really? “Da Vinci Load”? Curious! Might have to check that out! Although Tom Hanks’ “Da Vinci Code” is another original film I haven’t seen before its porn counterpart, lol.

    Which reminds me, have u heard or seen “Roma”? I caught “Roma 1” and “2” not too long ago. Same big-budget look-and-feel set in Ancient Rome. There’s an attempt at a plot involving Julius Caesar, politics and deception, but not as solid as “Pirates”. And sadly, the sex comprises a larger percentage than the story. Not to mention, most of the foreign stars have their voices dubbed with more Americanized accents, which is rather amusing yet annoying at times, lol.

    Regarding the “Kanon” photos… Ah, 4325 with Makoto, yeah, I like how she peeks from behind the other girls. Wait, fall flat on her face? Are u sure u picked the right one?… Hmm, 4288 with Makoto bending over, hahaha! Almost, but there’s a seam there to shatter that illusion of yours, lol… And 4330 with Makoto bending over again. Hehe, u have quite the lolicon mind there too! Gotta give the fans the service, eh?

    P.S. Gahhh, I forgot to add your RSS feed to my reader. Apologies. I’ll check them out after my treadmill run with “BSG”, lol. “Ah’ll be bahk.”

  13. lol unexpected?
    If you plan to watch Battle Royal, even you havent seen it so far, you still know what you get haha

    and well ya the boobs, whats up with all the big boobed pirates? o.O

    Miyabiko´s last blog post > Blog 42: Addiction

  14. Yeah I updated my feed with the “xx” feed, and it still is not working. I have no idea why. And yes, I liked the girl who used sex as a temptation to kill the males. She was hot.

    Never mind it seems my Feedreader never updated your URL from the previous editing I did to your feed and from now on it should be working fine.

    Panther´s last blog post > Dolls? In THIS Blog?

  15. @Miko-chan: Ehh, lol, I didn’t expect that much blood! As for the big-boobed pirates, it’s an adult film. What else? And like u said, “you still know what you get”, haha. Makes sense? ^_^

    @Panther: Hehe, I’m beginning to agree about her. If u want the info, that hot “sickle girl” was named Mitsuko Souma… Ah, thanx, glad to hear of the fix. Yet more posts to inundate your day, lol. But so far, nothing about dollfies here.

  16. @Miko-chan: Okay-okay, “pr0n”, lol. Actually, in Japan, they say AV for “adult video” instead. For example, AV idol Maria Ozawa, etc. Satisfied? ^_^;

  17. @Miko-chan: Ahh, I see! You must be feeling pretty *good* if you’re mentioning it here, hehe. Lucky! ^o^

    P.S. Really? They’re playing “Ally McBeal” in Japan? Haven’t seen that in ages! Haha, Cage & Fish (an intended pun for “cajun fish”), gotta love those guys.

  18. haha i am feeling godd ya
    Happy to see my tattoo artist again next week and get my tattoo continued.

    and oh well they dont show it here, but i downloaded all seasons so yeah haha

    i gotta love john cage, he is so adorable

    and i love berry white

    Miyabiko´s last blog post > Blog 42: Addiction

  19. @xJaymanx: That is the one, with the music store. And I’d hafta disagree, Jack Black is too ott. He’s good in Pick of Destiny, but I didn’t like School of Rock much either, prefer his music. Cusack rocks High Fidelity. I think he got an award for it or something like… lol
    Con Air is good. Manly fun lol. Lots of testostorone and action. Explosions, hand to hand combat etc. My dad recommended it(before I was a Cusack fan) think I became a fan after seeing America’s Sweethearts one too many times… Same thing for Jason Lee, only with a different romcom lol.

    Meimi132´s last blog post > John Cusack – Spreading the love

  20. @Miko-chan: Glad to hear the good news! Ahh, yeah, Cage is pretty funny. But don’t forget Ling or Nelle, hehe. It was so sad with Billy. But that singer played by Josh Groban was awesome too, lol… Barry White ain’t bad either. ^_^

    @M-chan: Awww, but being OTT is Black’s forte! Then again, we’re looking at them thru two different perspectives. My more comedic masculine view. Versus your more romantic feminine view (i.e. actors as boyfriend material, lol). Totally different views… Speaking of manliness, that’s what “Con Air” sounds like. Is Cage as good here as he was in “The Rock”? That was awesome. Pretty much all of Bruckheimer’s action films are awesome. Just like “Armageddon”, oh yeah. If u wanna compare testosterone and explosions, yeah! Haha, Jason Lee! Why not Owen Wilson? You definitely love those offbeat slightly-askew yet slightly-redeemable adorable types, don’t u? Lee was awesome in “Mallrats” though, lol. Simply. Classic.

  21. So, I’ve heard of Battle Royale. The thing is, I haven’t watch it yet! Maybe the thought of guts breaking apart and gore-galore wasn’t my cuppa-of-tea back then (2 years ago, to be exact). I could catch it sometime soon, but maybe when I’m not eating. I remember watching “Machine Girl” last year, and have the exact same feeling when watching that movie while having a Big Mac in my guts! Not a happy sight, I’ll tell you… ToT

    Hmm, I remember catching Pirates back then in 2005. No doubt it’s a pron movie, but when it comes to big budget adult films, this one tops the list. Haven’t got around catching up on the sequel but my feelings tell me that I can’t watch adult films anymore. 2D-girls for me at the moment… ^^;

    Ah, for the QotW, I’ll choose images 4233, 4234 and 4306. Just love the way you make Ayu running senseless left and right. And Makoto is just lovely as usual. Pretty and lovely, if I might say…

    jusuchin85´s last blog post > Of Bleaches, Ninjas, Vectoring and Cyberpets!

  22. @J85: Haha, yeah, slashers aren’t usually my thing either. Then again, I didn’t expect it to be! But I took a chance, and it was actually quite riveting. Hardcore riveting. But psychological most of all. Oddly enough, I watched the first half-hour with dinner, the next half-hour with the following night’s dinner, then the last full-hour with yet another night’s dinner, lol. No problem whatsoever with my guts. ^_^;

    I agree. Just finished “Pirates” tonight. The final fight and battle scenes were actually entertaining as well! Really? No more 3D? Ah, but u could rationalize that watching 3D could “clear the palate” for more enjoyable 2D, lol.

    Ah, yeah, crazy lil Ayu can be such a handful. And I mean that in a platonic way! But of course, Makoto, her expression is so stunning yet natural, so effortlessly graceful. How do the sculptors do that? Mesmerizing. Indeed.

  23. Yikes, it’s amazing how you go through the gut-slashing moments! ^^; Maybe I’ll put it into my watchlist as well? Change my perspective on movies a little…

    No more 3D, my man. I just found out that some 2D mangakas/doujin artists are really good in portraying storylines. Much better than 3D, in my opinion. Then again, does 3D ever have a storyline?

    I admire some sculptors who are able to design and sculpt dynamic poses of figures. Makoto is just one of them. And to think that I’m still looking for her right now, when it is difficult to find here again… ToT

  24. @xJaymanx: Ahhh yes, but he’s a brilliant actor none the less.
    Yes Cage is that good, better even. You seen Raising Arizona too? I just can’t believe that Bruckheimers newest movie is ‘Confessions of a shopaholic’….seems so…wrong.. after CSI, POTR, Con Air and everything else…
    Mallrats rocks, much like most of Kevin Smiths movies(not counting that romcom with Affleck… forgotten its name) you seen Chasing Amy too?
    Hmmmm Owen Wilson…. pretty charming in Shanghai Noon. And Knights. Without IMDBing him I can’t remember many of his movies lol.
    Harvest Moon Island of Happiness manual came today! :woop: I can pick the girl I’m gonna woo! lol. (Wooing the boy characters is never as fun… I wud its like that with eroge and others like it.)

    Meimi132´s last blog post > John Cusack – Spreading the love

  25. @J85: Hehe, no hurry, no worries, dude. To tell the truth, since I watch anime or films with my dinner (and/or ice cream) almost every day, I think eating actually helps to *tone down* the violence! In other words, maybe the everyday triviality of a meal distracts me from the full force of being *really absorbed* 100% into the film. Makes sense?… As for storylines, “Pirates XXX” might be the best attempt in recent (if not all) history, for its genre, of course. Then again, 2D hentai would probably be a better comparison than 2D mainstream. In this case, despite my limited viewing of 2D hentai, the best storyline would still have to go to “Bible Black” so far, lol… Ahh, really? Didn’t know Makoto became so rare so quickly! Hey, good luck with her, man. ^_^

    @M-chan: Ahh, haven’t seen “Raising Arizona” or “Confessions” yet, so I can’t make those assessments, lol. But from your reaction, “Confessions” sounds too rom-com sappy for a Bruckheimer fan-base? LOL, probably! Haha, yeah, seen “Chasing Amy” too. If I remember correctly, the girls were hot, lol. Hahaha! Those “Shanghai” films are exactly the Owen Wilson ones I meant too! Epic comedy. Plus his brief life in Bruce Willis’ “Armageddon”, of course. So we’ll see about “Con Air”… Awww, don’t know anything about “Harvest Moon”, but if you’re gonna woo a girl, all I can do is cheer, right? Hip-hip hooray! Though I’d be quite interested in your wooing strategy. Might help mine, lol. Good luck, Em!

    @Miko-chan: Haha, true! That Ling roar! Classic. Gahhh, I might have to download “Ally McBeal” sometime…

  26. @xJaymanx: LOL, What is it with guys and lesbians? I don’t feel the same about gay guys lol. I know plenty of girls who like Yaoi though…
    Armageddon is an awesome movie. I hold a grudge with it though, for doing the unthinkable and killing Bruce Willis, and keeping Affleck alive…. wtf….
    Harvest Moon is a series of EPIC farming games. So-so fun. Addictive as hell. And its got a visual novel-type part too. (The whole finding a wife(/husband, in the later games) thing.) In the game on PS1, Back to Nature, the girl was a more important part, cos when the main character was little he met a girl while he was staying at his grandfathers farm. So he hopes to meet that girl again.
    Ever since I’ve been playing them I’ve been the boy character. In the first game I played you could choose gender but not getting married, in the PS1 game you couldn’t choosed the gender, you were just a guy. The DS one you couldn’t choose, but the guys weren’t cute enough anyways…. called my character Kyle(as always) and going for the most Popuri or Karen-like girl. Though I think I was wooing the mermaid on the DS version lol. They released a DS Cute, which was the same game, you just play as a girl instead lol. Theres a few new ones coming out aswell in Japan. All so cute looking… (Bit of a rant I know…)

  27. @M-chan: Nahhh, that wasn’t a rant! ^_^

    Haha, yeah, I know what u mean. Let me try my best to explain this mysterious phenomenon as best I can. First, let’s distinguish between *lipstick* lesbians and *butch* lesbians. Typically, we’re talking about the *lipstick* variety, lol. Secondly, *bi* women may be grouped with the *lipstick* lesbians too, lol…. Ready? Now, let’s take a theoretical male spectator “S”. If he sees attractive girl “X” in a sexual situation, he’d probably find it arousing. However, unless girl “X” is playing with herself, she must be with one of two genders. If “X” is with a guy, “S” would probably be distracted, consciously or subconsciously. Some more distracted than others. I don’t think guys particularly want to see other guys having sex unless the girl is the primary focus, lol. That’s why a guy’s face may usually be off-camera in an adult video. Or a guy may be roughly detailed, or have hair-concealed eyes in a hentai scene. But if girl “X” is paired with *another* just-as-arousing girl “Y”, then not only is the guy-distraction 100% eliminated, there’s another girl to double the arousal from the reciprocal Y-to-X direction! Makes sense? Hope this didn’t sound too much like a math or science class!

    Hehe, true, but sacrificing Willis was the most dramatic gut-wrenching path to take. At least he survives in the timeless “Fifth Element’, lol. LOL, this “Harvest Moon” series sounds genuinely intriguing. Actually, I shouldn’t tease u about playing as “Kyle” (as in Kyle MacLachlan?) because I definitely enjoyed playing as Lara Croft in “Tomb Raider I”, “II” and bits of “III” (for PC), lol. I’d grown quite protective of Lara! In fact, I’ve enjoyed *playing* female characters in my own “Firefly” fanfics, lol. Such as the niece-type “Miriam” and the Anglo-Asian genius-pilot “Lucky”. Hmmm, so maybe it’s the allure of exploring the mysterious mind-and-heart of the opposite sex???

  29. @xJaymanx: LOL, tis a long, but gud explanation. Care to explain the uniforms obsession too lol? Nurses and Policewomen etc, all seem to be sent as strippograms or actual strippers lol.
    And no, not Kyle as in Kyle MacLachlan lol. Though literally, just a second, I was thinking of actors named Kyle lol, and he’s the only one I can think of lol. Hahahah, So funny, all I know bout him is his role in Desperate Housewives and that he was in that weird tv series, Twin Peaks, ne? Kyle is just a nice name. Like Will/William. But naming my HM character after one of my real life friends would be quite strange lol. Naming them Will after the Will in ‘The Subtle Knife’ wouldn’t be strange though lol. I just got used to Kyle anyhows.
    Fifth Element WINS. Gawd thats a good movie…
    Guys enjoy playing as Croft cos they get to stare at her ass the whole way through, and I BET, in the house, you made her stand upsidedown on the diving board to get her clothes to fall off, DIDN’T YOU? lol (Now you’ll probably ask, ‘Why did you know this?’ Or ‘Did you?’ I did actually lol, I also had to lock the creepy butler in the walk in freezer though… the one that follows you about the mansion… though this was in the 3rd game mind… My dad tried the diving board thing too lol. On the 2nd game aswell as the 3rd I think… lol

    Meimi132´s last blog post > Harvest Moon Island of Happiness – Guide Book GET

  30. @M-chan: Thanx! But, gahhh, you’re killing me at the office, lol. Let’s see, the uniform thing is more vague to me. But if we also include “teachers”, then I’d probably guess there’s an inherent *authority complex* associated with certain uniforms. Fearing yet desiring female authorities. Especially when women hold less authority, less often, in a male-dominated society. Thus the arousal emerges from the unconventional or rare. So I can understand the “policewomen”, “soldiers” or “teachers” or “bosses”, possibly “nuns” (lol). But not sure about “nurses”, lol. Medical authority to “take your medicine!” maybe?

    Haha, yeah, MacLachlan is the only Kyle I can think of too. Never saw a full episode of “Peaks” or “Housewives”, but I sense he fits those worlds perfectly. I wonder if the phonetic resemblance to “kill”, adds than edge to “kyle”, lol. Or “will” with “kill”. What about “Killian”? Too bad there was no “Kyle” in “Fifth Element”. But didn’t u know that the first name of “Korben” Dallas is an intentional anagram of “broken”? Similar to “kill”? Hahaha. Kyle Korben Killian Kincaid MacLeod, of the clan MacLeod. Ah, “Highlander”, lol.

    True, Lara’s ass ain’t bad. But actually never did that upside-down thing. Don’t remember if I tried it, or if I even knew it existed. Don’t think so! You sure it was “TR III”? Cuz “I” and “II” didn’t have that, did it? God, that turtle-creepy butler! LOL, now “maids” wouldn’t carry any *authority complex*, would it? That’s the opposite direction. Subservience instead of authority. Ah-ha! Would “nurses” fit under a *subservience complex*? Now that’s a whole different can of unconventional worms… Unconventional!

  31. @jayman: Think with nurses its all the TLC they give you, I love girls in all uniforms, OL, Nurse, Army, Police etc.

    when i was in hospital i had a gay male nurse…do not want :(.

  32. yay, you posted the vid! :D

    I remember reading about Pirates on 4chan’s /r9k/ board! Maybe I should check out the R-rated version.

    Lovely pics of the Kanon girls! When I started watching Kanon, I thought the first 5 or so episodes were so boring that I almost fell asleep. And then the Makoto arc started and I was glued to screen lol.

  33. @Joe1991: LOL, now that would explain nurses and nuns, but TLC from policewomen? Soldiers? It’s either authority or subserviency, never equality! Ouch, cringe, don’t mention gay male nurses, lol.

    @Coco-chan: Yup! But noone else here has mentioned anything about that video. Oh well, lol. I thought it was hilarious. Hmmm, but I wonder where u could even find an R-rated version of “Pirates”? Especially if the X-rated version is more prevalent. Hmmm… Ah, thanx! Hehe, u gotta be patient with these well-constructed anime (yeah, I’m a patient guy). They slowly paint the story, then wham, they hit ya with the tragic drama. I pretty much broke down in tears (don’t tell anyone) around episode 8-9 with the “wedding” scene. Wow, “glued” is right.

  34. @Miko-chan: LOL, I’ll think about it… maybe. ^_^;

    @Jem-chan: Yup, absolutely right. The fourth season of the re-imagined “Battlestar Galactica”… Why?

  35. Battle Royale is an amazing film, we actually watched it in school LOL That gives you an idea of how good our schools are over here XD
    In my opinion its a lot better than the sequal as well..
    Awesome Kanon Gals shoot too, love the lighting.. what do you use for it? Ive never thought to ask ^^;

    taketombo´s last blog post > Busy Few Days

  36. @TT-kun: Really? I’m surprised such a student-violent film would be shown at school! But yeah, not in any hurry to grab the sequel… Hey thanx! Well, I mentioned it a bit in my “Evangelion Gothlolis” Blog 185, but I have a 500W halogen sitting on the top of my bookshelf about 10 feet away. But that’s just for background ambient lighting. It isn’t enough for the actual figure lighting. Oddly, for this “Kanon” shoot, my external flash unit didn’t work out as well as the Rebel XT’s built-in flash. Yup, the built-in flash, lol. But I’m satisfied. ^_^

  37. @xJaymanx: lol, I didn’t give her a name, she’s a standard blonde girl, I draw alot of girls with that style hair, varying degree’s of fringe(bangs if you don’t know what a fringe is lol). You can name her if ya want lol.

    Meimi132´s last blog post > Yesterday’s News – 2006

  38. @M132: Haha, “standard” blonde girl. Standard? I suppose I have no choice but to take your word, lol. Hmm, we’ll see. If I do vectorize her, “Kylee” or “Kylie” (either feminine form of “Kyle”, lol) will be at the top of my list! ^_^

  39. @Jem-chan: Hahaha, nice! But don’t spoil anything!

    Ahh, I took a different strategy. After watching the return with Episode 11 (damn!), I went back to the beginning of Season 4, Episode 1… So I’ve been running the treadmill nightly for every half-hour since then, lol. Now up to the 2nd-half of Episode 9. Once I tackle Episode 10 again, then I can jump forward and finish 12, 13, and 14, hehe. Since I don’t have cable, I should be able to download 15 in a couple days. No worries. But your anger intrigues me! ^_^

  40. Damn…The Server just went Bonkers and my long and detailed answer disappeared in the width of cyberspace <..<

    Ive looked BR up and they have cut 4:50 minutes of material out of it.

    Check out for more information about our System.

    Now to something entirely different: Porn Stars lol

    I actually do in fact prefer not-so perfect persons over “perfect” beeings.What really makes a person for me are the slight imperfections (you may aswell call them faults) that define them and enhance their looks.

    You could very well compare it to the saying “The world is not beautyful,therefore it is.”

    The Average US Porn Star is so “enhanced” to perfectness that I simply cant find any beauty in it.Whats there to like if they all do look alike(you could say generic)?

    Damn this part was originally way better *note to myself* Save before clicking submit

    BTW: Read/Watch Kino no Tabi if you havent already done so.Great Novel/Anime Series

    Blowfish´s last blog post > Melon?Pan!

  41. @FlyingBlow: Haha, sorry to hear that, dude! Even with today’s post-and-comment auto-saves, I still can’t trust them 100%. So I write them in Notepad or TextEdit before I copy-and-paste them to the blog. Usually.

    But damn, 4:50 minutes is a pretty huge cut. I wonder which parts? Maybe the most-violent bits, a few seconds here, another five seconds there, etc… As for porn, maybe u haven’t been exposed to enough of it to distinguish between the “enhanced” starlets, haha. What do u mean by average? Even if we discount the amateur or backyard genre, there are still “natural” stars in the bigger-budget productions. But not too many, lol. Having said that, they aren’t clones either. There are indeed variations. Taking “Pirates”, there were about a half-dozen featured actresses. But for me, only 1 or 2 really stood out. There was a darker-haired Spanish-Mexican type, not featured on the cover, who was particularly hot. And then there’s the main star Jesse Jane, second from the left on the cover. She’s a high-powered machine! While the rest of the cast seemed kinda quiet or mediocre in comparison, lol. So it’s not just looks, it’s enthusiasm, charisma, and yes, even acting ability!

    P.S. But if u want to talk about clones, let’s talk about “Kanon” or “Clannad” and measure their eyes, faces and bodily dimensions, haha. Regarding “Kino”, it was my Soul-Haunting Honorable Mention of 2007! And try pre-posting in Notepad or TextEdit, lol.

  42. Ah, yeah, pre-posting in notepad yay. Of course, sometimes Word is a better option — like when your computer dies from lack of power. XD (But I can’t be bothered to open it/fuss with the interface anyway.)

    Such a long post! Now I feel like watching Pirates too…shall go check it out. :)

    And speaking of dimensions, I’m always somewhat amused when anime characters are profiled as having possible measurements…though there’ll always be those with the 34-inch bust and 21-inch waist. -_-

    Jenn´s last blog post > Kami no Shizuku 3 – Ehhh? Live Action?!

  43. @Jenn-chan: Hehe, yeah, Word works too. I don’t know if it still happens, but in the past, whenever I pasted Word text somewhere else, it would carry all the font-style-size crap with it, lol. Even if it’s in its default Times New Roman! But using Notepad clears that junk all away. Maybe it’s fine nowadays. I’m just used to Notepad and its iMac cousin, TextEdit, lol.

    Long? Long post? You haven’t noticed for the last few months? Hahaha, yeah, instead of many little bitty posts over the week, why not just one mega-post? Besides, it fits my weekend schedule and inter-dimensional thought patterns too, hehe. Heyyy, let me know what u think of “Pirates XXX”! I think I’ll take a peek at the real “Pirates of the Caribbean” before continuing with the “Pirates XXX” sequel. Should be revealing, pun intended.

    Haha, “possible measurements”… Anime itself is the art of stylistically exploring the impossible, isn’t it? ^o^
