Satsuki Yukino (vocals) – Dear You ~Cry~ (Higurashi no Naku Koro Ni)

31 07 2009

Even though I started watching Higurashi no Naku Koro Ni and never finished it some years ago, this music still caught my attention:

There are tons of versions with different vocals by the seyuus of the anime, but this one I like the most.
Satsuki Yukino played the parts of Shion and Mion.
The info on the title might not be accurate, but it’s everything I could find out about it… dunno from which composer/band came the instrumentation from the original music, or if the music title is correct, but I’ll shure you’ll eventually find out if you need to. 😀

Audition (NSFW) (Gore)

30 07 2009

Audition, a Takashi Miike movie (also author of equally gory Koroshiya Ichi), is among the new school japanese movies which are considered by some, the most disturbing movies around.

The actual story isn’t bad: It’s about a middle aged widower looking for a new wife, which ends up posing a supposed “audition” for a movie with the help of his son, with the true purpose of finding this new wife for him.
The story then evolves when he finds one “perfect” japanese wife, and only after sometime starts finding out bits and pieces of her past, which will reveal her true personality.
The graphical situations portrayed in the movie, including torture, dismemberment, and sexual content makes it too strong for most people.
Summary: If you were shaken by movies like Saw or Hostel, keep your distance from Takashi Miike movies because they make these two look like a ride in the park. 😛





Abandonware – Yie Ar Kung Fu (NES)

30 07 2009

Nice fighting game that came with those all in one NES cartridges.

One of the predecessors of modern 2D fighting games maybe, it was fairly simple.
I don’t remember the number exactly but you had to fight unarmed some 5 or 6 enemies equiped with different weapons (minus the last boss if I’m not mistaken).
Then, when you killed the last boss, the whole thing restarted with increased difficulty.
I remember almost completing 3 loops before dying… and I also remember there’s this technique of jumping bouncing on the wall that made killing most of them fairly easy… you just had to calculate the right distance for each one of them.
It also has a bonus stage were knifes and ninja stars comes flying at you… very difficult to pass.
