J's Chimes: Rings Depression


Ever since my friends told me about the meaning of rings put on for each finger of a girl, I became very conscious about it almost every time I go out. Sadness sets in each time I see girls with a ring that signifies that they're attached. Sighed... Are all the good ones already taken? Hope something good happens soon to put me in cloud 9 too...

J's Chimes: Back From Vietnam


I'd never would have thought that Vietnam is actually quite a build-up country until I visited it last week. Presenting traffics that are so congested, you'd be awed at how many bikers there are. Bought a lot of stuff in Ho Ching Minh City from Clothes to even a R6 for my Nintendo DS... lol, now I can play lots of games... Even went to Nha Trang for a little sightseeing... (Now thinking of organising another trip there again soon...

J's Chimes: Better Red Than Dead


This game is killing me... the suspense, the horror, the excitement. Dead Space is a definite breakthrough of horror games ever since the Resident Evil Series. I had to cover myself with a blanket after awhile because am feeling rather cold somehow... With it's incredible graphics, storyline and gameplay, it puts you at the edge of your sit each time... So if you do own a Xbox 360 then this is really one game not to be miss... seriously... See the trailer here.

J's Chimes: Dragonball Live Action Movie



20th Century Fox sure runs out of ideas to come up with a new movie till they decided to give the popular Japanese manga Dragonball a shot with a new live action movie this year. Presenting the casts that doesn't even look a bit like the original and mixing kung fu fighting into the world of dragon ball with a little bit of western style scene and action sure turns down most of Dragonball fans. Look at the trailer and be amazed... So do you still wanna watch?

J's Chimes: Tales Of The Abyss


Tales Of The Abyss was created Bandai Namco, the same company who created Tales Of Vesperia. Out on the Playstation 2, somehow it manages to become an anime this season probably because it's rather famous. Wow, brings back memories but I've yet to complete Tales Of The Abyss though... The animation artwork lives up to what the game has shown but then its the transition of the story that's the problem as its too fast (Guess it's to fit in a 12 episode timeframe type of anime yet again...) But all the more worthwhile to watch and recall the plot of it once again... Time to find some time to play this game again...

J's Chimes: Ga-Rei-Zero


Ga-Rei-Zero is seriously one of the weirdest animes that came out this season and am truly shocked by the endings... At first glance you might though that the characters are the main hero and heroines of this anime but then they were killed in action in just episode 1. (Though they looked kinda cool and stuff but seriously...) Well ya never know what's coming up next until you see the next episode... I gotta admit the graphics are definitely nice but the plot is somehow confusing whether who is indeed the main character of the anime and the story...

J's Chimes: Off To Vietnam


In 10 days time, I will be flying to Vietnam for a little trip. J's Chimes will still continue to update itself as I've already schedule the posts ahead of time. But seriously being away for a week makes me a little nervous as I'd miss plenty of animes and updates of stuff I'd always search for every single day... Lots of things to catch up after I come back. Hope the trip is worth it...

J's Chimes: Hatsune Miku 1/8 Scale Get-to!


Well it finally arrives after waiting for 3 long months... Rushed to China Square Central immediately to grab the best one without any dents or scratches... Wow, it really is a nice figure ever since Tsukishiro Mina. Take it out of the box immediately for some serious admiring and then back it goes again... Dang! It's just to precious to display it outside the environment... A layer of dust already forms on Tsukishiro Mina already... Don't want that to happen to Hatsune Miku too...

J's Chimes: Bandwidth Problems


Yesterday was a disaster... It seems that the pictures are too taxing for J's Chimes until the bandwidth exceeded it's monthly limit of 25gig for my photobucket pictures... Well it can be good and bad because this means that J's Chimes have been visited by many people now but at the same time such depressing pics have to appear at the very wrong time... Have to solve the problem by signing up for another account to distribute the bandwidth so that hopefully such will not happen again...

J's Chimes: Animes To Go...


Things aren't looking too good for me as I've have yet to even finish watching last season's anime, not to mention To Love-Ru and even the famous Macross Frontier. This season's anime might yet be another killer as there are quite a number of good animes up on air. Need to dig up some free time to watch Kemeko DX, Boy And Iron and some other interesting ones coming up...

J's Chimes: New Vs Old


There are a couple of animes and even games like Resident Evil is being remake and refined. One of the best is the rebuilt of Evangelion. In any case, the anime Kyou No Go No Ni has been remake into a much 'cuter' character design as to compare with the previous and the voice actors sound 'kiddy' too. I prefer the previous one though because the artwork is definitely better and looks more matured. Watch and compare the old one here and the new one here.

J's Chimes: Tales Of Vesperia Opening

Bought this game just days ago and already got hooked to it. But seriously there are more amazing stuffs to be hooked on to it too. For example the fantastically good opening introduction for the game which never bores me to watch it through each time I plays the game. There are 2 opening intros for it, one in English and the other in Japanese... Watch them both and see which suits your taste best... But seriously though...Both are real good...

video
This is the English Theme Introduction for the game. Sounds weird for a Japanese game but somehow it blends well and I like it though...

video
The Japanese Theme Introduction is still the original but seriously both have its uniqueness that simply words can't explain. Both are just nice. What do you think?

J's Chimes: Games Month


For some reason or another, I've been attracted to console games a lot. Probably because I finally got my pre-order for Idolm@ster Live for you! and also bought Tales of Vesperia off HMV at Citylink Mall. Idolm@ster Live for you! really gets to me as the songs are great. The best would be Tales of Vesperia as am pretty much into the game already... There are just too many good games coming out this season it seems... Am looking forward to it... Oh my wallet hurts...

J's Chimes: Season End Animes


Another season of animes ended. This season animes were the best but somehow or rather I didn't really have the time to finish watching them all. Most unfavorable end would be the finale of Code Geass. Of course there are good ones like Macross Frontier. Lots of 12 episodes animes too but they're ok somehow. Looking forward to this coming season's animes...
