“You could have said something like ‘Help me, you bastard.'”

Mobile Suit Gundam SEED Destiny; Shinn Asuka to Athrun Zala, after the Junius 7 colony drop.

One more day, and it’s off to Cambodia! Gotta bring out those anti-mine shoes…

Nothing much this week- oh, wait, this week mark the end of Macross Frontier. Sorely missed.

The day of departure marks the end of Code Geass. Ba cause I’ll be spending a week in Cambodia, I’ll be late by a week in seeing how the poor bastard Lelouch deals with his sweet sister Nunnally, who, at the end of episode 24, seems utterly determined to smack him off the face of the planet.

The holidays are ending (boo hoo) and then to top things off, I’m returning on the same day as the last day of the holidays. Screwy~ 8D

To compensate for missing out on my daily dose of Geass, I’ll be sure to catch Gundam 00 S2. It is on a Sunday, taking over Code Geass R2’s role to give you thought-provoking and utterly fantastic machines going nut-to-nut with each other.

This post is basically a summary of the week.

Mmm... Sprinkles.

Mmm... Sprinkles.

Well, whatever they’re called, anyway.

Had to go backt o my old secondary school to get that damned certificate. And look at it.

Wow.

Wow.

Screws and nuts! The places under construction still looked as though they got slagged by a Covenant capital ship. XD

But for the rest, look at it. Almost too different to recognize. They even had ice-cream serving in the canteen. On a rainy day. Be glad, kids, in my time we had to be content with crunching ice from our drinks (and then shooting the bits from straws like a blow-dart, but that's another story).

Was packing for the trip just now. God, when are they going to invent a planet-wide teleportation system? Then I wouldn’t have to pack days’ worth of clothes with me; could just zing back home for night-rest.

Then again, if there were teleportation grids the terrorists would go out of business. Dumb brickheads.

This time the Character of The Post’s the Man. Yes, you heard me correctly. It’s “The Man”.

Alright, I kid. His name is Axel Almer, a Banpresto original character first debuting in SRW Advance/Advance P and later, OG2, OGs, and OGG. Depending on the player’s choice of character in Advance, Axel ranges from happy-go-lucky GAR amnesic whose Heel-Face-Turn is almost too surprising to bear, to cold-blooded soldier of a pan-dimensional army looking for everlasting warfare. In OG2, though, he’s not playable, taking on a considerably more sadistic (and Shinn-like) personality, though this is later retconned in OGs, where he’s closer to his original villainous self, and finally OGG, where he finally is able to let go of the past after seeing the light (well, almost). The sole registered pilot of the Soulgain, a powerful close-combat Super Robot (most Supers are close-combat), he uses it to great effect in battle against his enemies, often taking them out in one or two hits. It helps that the Soulgain  is a Super Robot, and therefore towers over most mass-production real robots like the Mobile Suits from Gundam or the Aestivalis from Nadesico.

Overall, everyone loves him (as of OGG, with the exception of anti-lolitas and lolicons themselves) and once he throws away his evil role, he’s actually a pretty fine guy.

Ooh, it’s time; gotta go do maintainence on the RX-78-2 that arrived a few days ago…
