Weekend Build: Gunpla and Infinite Stratos

Amazon Advertisement

My son decided that he wanted to gunpla on his own. He then suggest that I also build the 'girl' figure I have had for a while.

He decided to pick the SD RX-93-v2 Hi-v NU Gundam that I got him at Katsucon. He picked the AGP Revive Custom II and Charlotte Dunois for me to do. I had to make some shelf arrangements as I didn't have space for it. This is why she was sitting for so long.

He went right to work as I gave him my snippers for cutting out the parts. This was his FIRST COMPLETE GUNPLA that he did all by himself. He wanted me to make sure I said that as he was super proud of that. There was a couple issues where he needed me to open up some parts as he had to make some corrections. That however was the only help I gave as he didn't want to force the parts open. He did take a short break as to play Minecraft, but otherwise, this was all done in the same afternoon. He especially liked the parts that could be set to be 'flying' from his armor. This also came with a stand which was a nice bonus for this figure and him to setup.

I was happy that my AGP wasn't that much of a problem to build. It seems this one was a bit easier to do the assembly for. I won't say there wasn't any challenges, but nothing like the Gundam Girls. This version came with some nice guns as she uses them in the show Infinite Stratos. I could only use 2 of them, so I picked the biggest ones. I even tried to pose he like on the cover. Needless to say, I was done well before he was.

He is kind of camera shy, so it wasn't easy to sneak in and take shots. He is so funny when he gets like this, but it was even funnier how he evades me. Gotta love your kids and remember that one day all this fun may fade as they get older. Here are some of the pre-production shots. I will have to give him my camera so he can take shots of me.
 
I got caught sneaking a shot here of him while pretending to shoot Charlotte. He told me to move her to the other side of the table to take the shot. He is such a smart kid to make sure I didn't get another candid shot of him working -dang it - foiled again!
Here is the 'together' shot of them after we both finished up.
He wanted me to take them to the window and take some shots like I did the last time. Here is some additional shots of the final figures. It was an overcast day, so it looks kind of gray outside. Wish it was sunny and blue skies as that would have been so much better.

 "OH SON, You forgot to clean up . . . again!"
Another end to a wonderful weekend with my son even if I had to remind him to clean up :^)

How was your past weekend - any fun family stuff?

Berserk: The Golden Age Arc ~ KIDS GO TO YOUR ROOMS!

Still in shock after watching the second arc of Berserk: The Golden Age - this is not a series for the young ones.

I know this series has been around for ages (like me), but I never read or watched it. Since they decided to bring it back, I decided to jump on the band wagon finally. I was fully expecting blood and gore, but not what came next. Before I dive too much into this, lets review the history of Berserk.

We have to thank Kentaro Miura for not only writing, but also illustrating this manga series. Though it originated back in 1988, it didn't become a full volume until Hakusensha published it in 1990. Within 7 years of its launch, it became an anime series. However, it only lasted 25 epsiodes which was just the first arc of the story. In 2012 we have these films released with a new look at the series. Their intent is to show the whole series this time as seen in the manga.

Summary as ripped from ANN:

"Guts, a man who calls himself "The Black Swordsman" looks upon his days serving as a member of a group of mercenaries, the Band of the Hawk, nicknamed "the Grim Reaper of the Battlefield." Led by an ambitious, ruthless, and intelligent man named Griffith, together they battle their way into the royal court, and are forced into a fate that may change their entire lives."

Where this summary ends, is where the craziness truly begins. I very much enjoyed the first story arc, The Egg of the King. It was brutal, but also showed compassion. It brought together everyone in a nice neat package. We met all the main characters and can see a possiblity of how this will flow for them all. Then comes the second part, The Battle for Doldrey which rips the entire group apart. I will forwarn you now that this isn't a 'kids' flick in this arc and going forward.

Preview for Berserk: The Golden Arc II
)

The Battle for Doldrey is very much an 'in your face' with the gloomy reality of humanity. Not only do you get some full frontal nudity thanks to Casca AND Griffith, there are also some sex scenes and not always consentual. Yep, there is a couple near rape scene in this series with poor Casca. Speaking of her, Guts finds out she is on her period when he is trying to get he out of her wet clothes - ewwwww. Even the one that looks consentual with Griffith and the Princess could be construed as a seduction rape. He climbs to her window, comes in unannounced and starts seducing her. She of course is overcome and submits to him. All of this is what shocked me as I wasn't expected this. I went into this series as a virgin, but came out a man or something like that.

I have been watching anime for years and even seen anime porn / hentai. I am not condemning this series at all, I just wasn't expecting to see that. Yes, I should have researched more or looked at the past series. Normally we get to see boobies and pantsu shots which I have always liked. But this took it to the next step with what is shown. I have to give kudos to the crew producing this as they didn't shy away from any part of the story. I am amazed that I haven't heard/seen more chatter about the second arc for the way it rips the humanity from the Band of Hawk and Guts. It is just how life is though, we are happily on our merry way and then something comes along to detour that. How do we react to it, how do we cope and how can we move on after such a damning experience is what life is about.

I can tell you now, that I am mortified and intrigued by all this. I have been sucked into this series as I want to know how this all comes to a conclusion - if it ever can. I am now looking forward to getting the third arc, The Advent. I have it on pre-order from Amazon. I can only imagine this to get worse.

Ok, I did read some online sites and I know for a fact this gets even more fucked up.

My Conclusion: Get the Manga, the first anime series or this new series. Any way you go, this is a must for any Otaku as it puts you in the middle of it all and NEVER says that it is sorry.
