Layman's Gunpla Guide - Painting Equipment

I decided to break this page down into three different sections relating to airbrushing equipment, hand and detailing painting equipment, and everything else that you'll need. Of course, you're also going to need some paint!

Picking out an airbrush can be pretty daunting at first. Here's some information on the basic types of airbrushes...

Layman's Gunpla Guide - General Building Equipment

If you’re checking out this section of the Guide I’m guessing that you’re just getting started with Gunpla, and might not even have built your first model. Well, you’re in luck, because you only need to things to start building: something to cut with and something to sand with.

Must Have:

Hobby Nippers (Flat Edged Cutters)

(Reposting) My Angel's Egg AMV

Since OR won't let me embed veoh videos: http://www.veoh.com/videos/v1585001SPSJx5t2 So the story behind this is probably better left put in the Rants & Raves section, but suffice it to say I generally HATE anime music videos. So one Christmas in 2005, I decided to sit down and create my own in a three to four day period. It's nowhere near a masterpiece, but I did submit it to MIddle Tennessee Anime Convention just because...well I had an AMV to submit to my local con...so. And it won Best Drama.

Site Updates

I've added extra modules, most noticeably the Captcha module, to handle the influx of spam following my absence.

Also, I just realized that this theme doesn't look so great in IE. If anyone has any suggestions for a new theme please let me know!

New Capcom VS game? Who is Tatsunoko?

That's right. There's a brand new Capcom VS arcade game. It sure did take a long time. I suppose they were listening to their fans. Now, we all know that there won't be a Marvel Vs Capcom 3 any time soon due to licensing issues. However, the new VS game is Tatsunoko vs Capcom Cross Generation of Heroes. Most of you are probably not familiar with Tatsunoko, at least not right away. Given other blog posts here at Otaku Revolution, I can safely assume this will be in your interests. Tatsunoko is responsible for some awesome anime series such as Macross, Casshern, Samurai Pizza Cats, Karas, Speed Racer, Video Girl Ai, and The Soul Taker among other series.

Macross Frontier - Breathing new life to the universe

Four weeks ago began the regular airing of the newest title to bear the Macross, Macross Frontier. Set in the same universe, sometime after the events of Macross Seven. Frontier follows a fleet of colonists traveling through space (one of many exploring outward from Earth and Eden), passing [apparently] too close to the galactic core. Here they encounter a new race of enemies, the Vajra, where little knowledge of them exists. The series focuses on the life of three main characters, Saotome Alto (average male lead), Ranka Lee (petite female lead who is 1/4th Zentradi) and Sheryl Nome (sexy figured female lead). For the most part Saotome Alto is your average VF pilot, joining the fight after another set of rare circumstances.
