J's Chimes: Uesugi Kenshin

I like scale models don't you? But this one's gonna burn my wallet right down to the pants. Retails 11800yen = SGD$165, this is one of the best model for Uesugi Kenshin from the popular eroge Sengoku Rance. It's about 1/5 scale and her clothes can be cast off... Hmmm... But in any case, I admired her a lot because of the game and her character. Even more because of her armor which is so cool. Click here for more pics or here to know more about Sengoku Rance.

J's Chimes: Looks Can Be Deceiving

Just got my pre-order revoltech figure of Yoko from Gurren Lagann but somehow she doesn't look much like the picture as posted here. The skin tone is way too dark than the original and that it's just doesn't look appealing at all... Guess it's another one of those failed products like the Idolmaster Revoltech Fraulein figures. In any case I'll still display it since it's already been bought...

J's Chimes: Left 4 Dead

Bought this game a week ago and immediately was hooked onto it... Out in the Xbox 360 console and PC version, Left 4 Dead is a survival horror game whereby you can play with 3 other friends online as a co-op to survive the zombie apocalypse. From the creators of Counterstrike, this game is so intense and nice it'll keep you asking for more. Resident Evil, Dead Space and Deadrising fans will definitely love this game too...

J's Chimes: Louise No Shana

Love the voice of Shana from Shakugan No Shana? What about Louise from Zero No Tsukaima? Does this sentence 'Urusai Urusai Urusai' reminds you of anything familiar? Yes it is and it's by the same voice actress named Rie Kugimiya. Her most current works would probably be Toradora. What amazes me is that their atittudes are almost the same... Louise, Shana and even Taiga. You can watch the latest anime Toradora right here at

J's Chimes: Anime Songs & Music

Recently I've been listening to a lot of anime songs... Going out and even at home. Seriously I've only been listening to them ever since I got into anime... (Nothing else interest me unless there are some nice songs elsewhere in other languages...) Too many favorites and don't know where to begin... So do you love anime songs too?

J's Chimes: Game Maddness

This season is also a killer. Other than animes, a couple of great games are released this season probably because it's the school holidays. Recently bought a couple from Command & Conquer Red Alert 3 to Dead Space. Some other good ones are Gears of War 2, Infinite Discovery, Star Wars The Force Unleashed....Ahhh! Too many... My wallet burns! Spending time playing games and awaiting my pre-ordered Otomedieus Gorgeous! Looks like I'll need to balance between anime and games now...

J's Chimes: Anime Galore

The increasing amount of animes that I have not yet watch are piling up in my hard drives and finally I've decided to start watching them one anime at a time. There are just too many new animes coming up this season that I do not even have the time to finish watching last seasons... Dang, I really need to start picking up the pace again and keep up with the times...

The Sky Crawlers movie is coming to a theater near you soon... Came across this particular poster at Plaza Singapura's movie theater.

The artworks are pretty promising and fans of Sky Girls or Strike Witches might like it as there're much aerial dogfights and stuff... Well it's still too soon to say anything yet except to wait for it's opening...

J's Chimes: Tales Of Vesperia Manga

OMG OMG OMG! It's only recently that I've bought and play this game and now it seems like this particular game has become so popular that a manga has been release for it. The artwork for the manga is great and have caught my attention. I guess I better start reading it and then off to play the game again... Have been too caught up with the game 'Dead Space' that I neglected this... Time to save the world again! Start reading the manga here.

J's Chimes: Girl In A Box

Though this is rather late news, but then this game in some way or another has caught the attention of many Eroge Fans. Made by the Illusion company and released on the 10 Oct this year, the game 'Hako' allows players to breed girls the size of an apple in a box. You got to feed them, play with them just like a Tamagouchi. And of course the famous thing which made Illusion games popular... I personal belief Artificial Girl 3 os a lot better. Well, different people have different perspectives...

J's Chimes: Refurbishment

My room's getting a bit messy recently after the Vietnam trip and thus have decided to clean up bit by bit starting with my display cabinet... Had cleaned and make way for more of my models now but still insufficient for my current ones... Well at least it's better now. Do you clean your models too? Models get a little dusty after some time so it's wise to clean them once in a while to prevent colour fading or losing it's moisture which results in dryness.
