Seiyuu appreciation post: We were once young too!

Back when your favourite seiyuu were sophomores...
How many faces can you recognise without the names?
Miyata Kouki, Shimono, Kishio and Sakurai look fairly similar to their current state. But Kishow... what happened? lol.

Seiyuu appreciation post: Toriumi Kousuke + Suwabe Junichi

I was stalking my Suwabe darling and came across this, Tori-chan and Suwabe's version of いろは唄 (Iroha uta)!! SO DARN SEXY! *Screams!*
Here's the CD cover btw.
Lol! Tori! What happened to you?
And Suwabe's so smexy in VK style. XD

Chrome 29 out now! Adds smarter omnibox suggestions and other tweaks.

Google Chrome 29 Adds Smarter Omnibox Suggestions & Other Tweaks [Updates]

Chrome 29 is the latest build of the browser and it now comes with a smarter Omnibox. The Omnibox brought in a faster way to search with auto-suggestions, and now it gets better with some improvements under the hood. Google says that desktop browser users will see better Omnibox suggestions based on the recency of websites visited, “resulting in more timely and contextually relevant suggestions.” Mac users haven’t been left out in the cold either, as this version has support for rich notifications for apps and extensions that keeps the user in the loop as an app goes about its job.

The latest stable release of Chrome also brought in an interesting new control which allows users to roll back the browser to an earlier clean state. The Reset browser settings button restores browser settings to their original defaults without harming any bookmarks, saved history, or passwords. Think of it as a fail-safe troubleshooter which you can apply when an extension or an install goes wrong. It is just the thing for overzealous trigger-happy extension fans. The Reset browser settings button is located under Settings Show Advanced Settings.

[Download] Devil Survivor 2: The Animation OST 2

DS2A's OST #2 was bundled with the 3rd blu-ray release, which was released a few days ago.
I'm crying and remembering so many scenes of the anime as I listen to this CD.
I'm definitely feeling motivated to transcribe a few of these songs for piano!!
DL here.

Chrome Theme: Festival Miku

Here is another Miku theme as requested by Misaki-Cherry Ryuga! It features Miku in a festival dress with bright fireworks and lanterns lit in the background. It is quite a nice picture and definitely worth giving a try!

Asphalt 8: Airborne now available in the Play Store for 99 cents


Gameloft’s Asphalt racing series has been one of the franchises that have constantly pushed the envelope of mobile graphics. With great models, rich textures, and eye-catching effects, the graphics of Asphalt 8: Airborne are not quite console-quality yet, but it’s safe to say we’re slowly getting there.

After a delay of a few weeks (the launch was initially scheduled for August 8), Asphalt 8: Airborne can now be downloaded from the Play Store for the reasonable price of 99 cents.

Under the appropriate “Leave gravity in the dust” tagline, the game showcases 47 cars, of which 80 percent are reportedly new, including licensed models from makers such as Lamborghini, Bugatti, or Ferrari. The developers have supposedly recorded the sounds of genuine car engines to deliver the most immersive and authentic driving experience. Players will get to push said cars to their limits on a variety of tracks, in the over 180 events of the career mode.

Of course, the signature feature of this new arcade title is the liberal interpretation of the laws of physics – a variety of ramps let players get airborne, perform barrel rolls, and even somersaults with their cars. Because, why the heck not?

The game, which was first introduced during the keynote of Google I/O 2013, features excellent integration with the newly launched Play Games Services. There are some in-app purchases to contend with, but if those don’t put you off, Asphalt 8: Airborne looks like a must play.
