CAPCOM Releases Claire Redfield Biography Video!

CAPCOM just released this short biographical video about Claire Redfield, one of the chief protagonists of the Resident Evil video game franchise. I’m not exactly sure why they released this video, but it seems to be just a bit of a marketing boost for the Resident Evil 2 remake that was released at the start of this year. In any case, I think it’s a cool video. It has a spoiler warning at the beginning, but I didn’t think it divulged that much about the games Claire is in. For example, I myself have never played Resident Evil – Code: Veronica and the video didn’t really ruin anything for me.

Claire Redfield is a character I want to write a Featured Heroine post about in the future, but as I said above, I haven’t played Code: Veronica. So until I do, that post will unfortunately have to wait. Till next time, au revoir, arrivederci and may the force be with you!😊


New Project: The Secret of the Star-shaped Scar

Yes, I still have to get back to working on Elycia, but I was recently inspired to start a new project, titled The Secret of the Star-shaped Scar (or Star-shaped Scar, for short). I’ve been working on the first part of this new project for the last few weeks and it’s just about done. So at the moment, it looks like I’ll be able to begin unleashing it some time next week.😄 “What is Star-shaped Scar about?”, you might ask. Well, I won’t reveal too much about it now, other than it will be a colour web comic. Anyway, stay tuned  if you are interested. Till next time, au revoir, arrivederci and may the force be with you!😊

Giving pixivFANBOX Another Try

A couple of years ago, I signed up to pixiv’s FANBOX, which like Fantia is another Japanese Patreon-like service. Unfortunately, though, it soon became apparent that you needed a Japanese bank account to be able to receive pledges from supporters, and so ever since then, my FANBOX account has remained very much dormant. However, just yesterday, I learned that on June 12 of this year, FANBOX made it possible to receive pledges via PayPal as well. As a result, I will once again be giving it another try!😄

Of course, this raises the question of what I will do with my Fantia account. For the time being, I will keep it open, but depending on how things go on FANBOX, I may close it in the future. Anyway, that’s all for this post. Till next time, au revoir, arrivederci and may the force be with you!😊

Condolences to the staff at KyoAni

There is some sad news from Japan today. One of the offices of Kyoto Animation (KyoAni for short), a well-known Japanese animation production company, was the target of an arson attack. Details of the incident are still emerging, but at least one person has died and several dozen others were injured, some of them seriously. The perpetrator is in police custody.

I am a big fan of quite a few of the series produced by KyoAni,in particular. The Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya, Love, Chunibyo & Other Delusions and Beyond the Boundary. In my opinion all of KyoAni‘s works are high-quality pieces of art that, without a doubt, brought a great deal of joy to a great number of people around the world, and so I offer my deepest condolences to those affected by this tragedy.

New Customised Lego Minifigure: Tanya Serebryakova

For a quite a long time now, I’ve been thinking about making my own customised Lego minifigures, especially ones of characters that are unlikely to ever become official minifigures. Well, I’ve finally gotten around to making my very first one: Tanya Serebryakova (Татьяна Серебрякова). Continue reading

Updates for fan-made “Nausicaa” film announced on YouTube!

Chris Tex, the Brazilian creator who is producing a not-for-profit short film based on Hayao Miyazaki‘s Nausicaä of the Valley of the Wind, has just released this short video on YouTube. In the video, he discusses various updates to his Nausicaä project, titled Wind Princess. There is no word on a release date as yet, but things seem to be going along quite nicely at the moment.😃 If you didn’t see my initial post on Mr Tex’ project, you can check it out by clicking HERE. That post has the “official trailer” in it, which I thought looked amazing.😊
