Hello, and welcome to Yamcha's Anime universe! Some of you may know me from visiting my Myotaku page (username: Yamchaa), but if you havent visited or dont know me, then thats cool too lol. Im a big anime fan and ive been one for as long as i can remember. I collect anime movies, magazines, figures, all things related to anime, and im proud to say that i have a pretty hefty and diverse anime collecion which is usually constantly growing, and with this new world i hope to make new friends and spread my knowledge of anime to whoever may need it ^_^
Its been a while since i last posted, and since i recently ordered some more anime a few days ago, I figured i would post and show you all what i was able to order :)
First of all, the method i used to find some of these anime series was pretty weird - Last thursday i woke up and i was bored so i got the idea to just go through the previews on my anime vhs tapes and dvds. The idea behind the whole process was that if i saw a preview for an anime that i thought was interesting, then i would order it, even if i knew nothing about the show at all. I figured that would make it alot more interesting when i finally received it in the mail to watch.
I searched through alot of my tapes and dvds before i settled on a few shows, and while i was chatting with Xaos online, i was looking for an old police anime that i had seen a preview of years ago. After a while of searching, i was finally able to find the name of the anime and so i went on my way to Amazon.com to order everything.
Here is a list of everything i ordered -
Mad Bull 34: entire series (VHS) Megazone 23: complete box set(dvd) Patlabor: The movie(VHS) Patlabor 2(VHS)
I made it a point to order most of the anime on vhs, because for some strange reason i am a big fan of anime on vhs, i guess because it makes the whole experince seem more old school lol.
So far i have received the Mad Bull 34 tapes in the mail, and i am expecting to get the Patlabor movie and Megazone 23 in the mail tommorrow. Patlabor 2 should arrive on the 25th, so i have some stuff to look forward to for the next few days :)
As for the anime, i also thought that i would put up a short summary of the Mad Bull 34 anime, since ive really been enjoying it. - It's an anime about a rookie New York police officer named Daizaburo and his veteran partner John Estes (also known as Mad Bull). Daizaburo expects to do his job as a police officer by the book, but he soon finds out that the 34th precinct is the toughest precinct in new York, and that his partner uses his own form of justice to lay down the law. The anime is very adult in nature, alot of language, violence, blood and suggestive themes. Here is a trailer of the series -
I'll be sure to post up info on the other anime as soon as i get them and watch them :)
As for today, i plan on watching some anime and possibly making some wallpapers. I havent made any in a while and since ive got some new anime dvds over the last few months, ive had the urge to make some wallpapers for a while now.
Well i suppose that will be all for now, i may post again later today about some more stuff if i'm not too lazy :)
I wasnt up to much today, so i thought i would take some time to put up a little post real quick :)
First of all, i wanted to post that yesterday i finally got my Macross Plus dvd in the mail. I ordered it last week and it took 8 days to get here (which felt like a month), but it has definitely been worth the wait. Watching it on dvd has been even better than watching the recorded version i have on vhs lol. Both are the same, but the dvd version is just so much more clear and visually better, and it has basically moved into a tie with my favorite anime series of all - Mobile suit Gundam 0083: Stardust Memory.
here is a pic of the Macross Plus Special Edition dvd set i got -
Other than that i havent been up to much this week, besides being lazy and watching anime dvds lol. This past weekend i did watch my dvd of the anime film Summer Wars, which was really good, and i hope to post up a pic of the dvd in the next couple of days, along with a summary of the movie in case you havent seen it yet :)
well i think that will be all for today, i hope to post more stuff up really soon though :)
I was actually planning on putting this post up yesterday, but i ended up falling asleep last night, so here i am this morning lol.
Yesterday morning when i got off work, i bought 2 more book cases, so that i could organize my anime collection alot better, instead of having it all crammed on 2 little book cases. Yesterday afternoon at 2:00 i started to put the shelves together, and finally at about 10:30pm i was finally finished re-arranging all the furniture in my living room and transferring my anime dvds to the new shelves.
I was pretty tired and i ended up falling asleep while watching the Foo Fighters documentary on VH1 lol
So this morning when i woke up, i went in my living room and took a picture of my new & Improved Anime Collection with my cell phone, and im glad to be able to post it up here, so here is the pic :)
Yesterday i also bought the anime movie called Summer Wars, I havent watched it yet, but i plan on watching it today sometime. Before i left work, i also found out that I had to order Evangelion 2.22 from the Wal-Mart Website, because it is an online exclusive or something like that. I only had to pay 9.99$ for it though, and im hoping it will be delivered to the store i work at sometime this week.
As for ordering stuff, my Macross Plus dvd still hasnt arrived yet lol. Hopefully it will get here soon though, thats for sure, because ive been wanting to watch it in dvd format for a while.
Today i plan on transferring all of my videogames to the shelves that i moved my anime dvds from, which will give me easier access to all of my games, instead of having them crammed on a little book case in my closet lol. I plan on posting a pic of my games up later today, or tommorrow so be sure to check back :)
Well i think im going to go make something to eat and then start moving the games around. i hope you all enjoyed the post and i sure hope to chat with you all soon :)
First off, i wanted to post that while i was looking for a picture to put up with this post, i found a site that has stolen some of my wallpapers that i uploaded here. Ill put the link below so you all can check the site and see if they have taken some of your work too.
Ill be trying to get ahold of them, especially the person that posted them there.
In other news, today i finally ordered the 2-disc anniversary edition of Macross Plus on Amazon. It should arrive here sometime tommorrow if all goes to plan, and im pretty excited because even though i have the OVA recorded on vhs, i still wanted it on dvd for a more clear picture/sound.
Since i ordered my VIP ticket for the Motley Crue/Poison/New York Dolls concert, today i was able to redeem all the free stuff i was going to get. I had to send in my mailing address so that they could mail me my free stuff, which is a 300$ value. hopefully ill get it all in the mail soon, thats for sure :)
Well, ive been up since about 2 this morning, mostly ive just been messing around online and playing Halo Reach, trying to reach the Brigadier rank. i also ordered my concert ticket to the Motley Crue/Poison/New York Dolls concert on June 7th. I got the VIP ticket which gives me a seat right in front of the stage, and also some other extra stuff, so im expecting it to be pretty cool thats for sure :)
the main reason i wanted to post just now is that i just went into chat here on theotaku, and there was some strange stuff going on in there. Here is the chat log that i saved before i left -

Maybe you guys can make sense of it, but thats the main reason why i rarely go into chat these days.
In other news, i took my Sega Genesis to work a couple of times last week, and played games with a co-worker while we were on lunch. Monday night we played Mutant League Football, and tuesday night we played Streets of Rage 2, which we beat. Wednesday night we played Road Rash 2 which was pretty fun considering that we hadnt played the game much before then.
Friday i bought some more anime dvds at Game Exchange -
Heat Guy J - sins of the city
Trigun - Wolfwood
Trigun - Project Seeds
Trigun - Angel Arms
Trigun - Gung H0 Guns
I also bought the anime box set of Chrono Crusade from a co-worker for 20$. She didnt like it, so i offered to buy it from her :)
Ive also been wondering why the wal mart here doesnt have the Evangelion 2.22 dvd yet. Hopefully they will have it when i go back to work tommorrow night, thats for sure.
Well, i suppose that will be all for now, i may post some more stuff up later though :)
