Nutritional value

Not satisfied with moe-ifying bags of rice, bottled drinks, canned bread, and other ordinary everyday consumables, Japan’s industrious entrepreneurs have moved on to the next big thing: “moe multivitamins and herbal supplements”:

The world may be doomed.

Android dreaming

For the Android user with money to burn. It’s rare to find overseas apps that aren’t region-locked to Japan…

* “Touhou Clock”: – now available outside of Japan, with recorded voices! Except I don’t really want to spend so much on an alarm clock… *¥600* (about $7.48)
* “Training with Hinako”: and “Sleeping with Hinako”: – Expensive, but apparently full videos of the -indie film classic- fanservice fiesta. Gigantic, so I probably can’t fit it on my Nexus One. Also, expensive for an app, although I suppose it’s reasonable. *¥525* (about $6.55), *¥945* (about $11.78)
* “Moetan for Android”: – I bought the iOS version and immediately regretted it, considering that it’s essentially just a quiz book at this point. Falling love!! *¥450* (about $5.61)

…Maybe I’ll try hopping on wifi next time I’m in the country and downloading some apps.

Now Playing, August 2010

Currently Playing:
* *Hexyz Force* (PSP) – Sunaho Tobe! Sunaho Tobe! ♥ Oh, the game isn’t bad either. It’s not SN: Twin Age, that’s for sure. English voice acting is okay, not bad at all.
* *Burnout Legends* (PSP) – Shoddy graphics, but still incredibly fun. Watching niconico comments on gameplay videos is fun, too. ああああああああ
* *Darkstalkers Chronicle* (PSP) – Uh, I don’t know, it was cheap and I thought I’d give it a try. I find I actually don’t like most of the character designs so I’m mostly playing as Morrigan/Lilith, whose design I actually don’t like that much either. Feels dated. The game itself has Vampire Savior underpinnings so technically it plays just fine.

Thinking about playing:
* A PS3, Lumines Supernova, Burnout Paradise, FF13, FF9, Scott Pilgrim, Valkyria Chronicles 1 (PS3) + 2 (PSP)
* Argh, I’ve got HDMI, what am I waiting for? Oh yeah, I’m poor this month from moving across the country and buying a 24″ monitor.

Waiting for:
* “Phantasy Star Portable 2″:

Listening to:
* “Anamanaguchi”
