Comtiq Heroines Volume 6 (Nov 2007)

Glad I bought this after looking at it a second time. The contents are worth the price ^_^. That said, I remember reading heisei democracy the other time comparing Comptiq Heroines and Megami megazine's contents and I agree that Comptiq is a strong competitor to Megami. That said, I still think Megami has better drawings as compared to Comtiq Heroines, but Comp H has more seiyuu news and photo's which more than made up for its already good art department. (Just not as stellar as Megami's art)

Followed by CLANNAD previews. This picture above is the 劇場版 done by Toei. Once you compare it with the redition of Nagisa below, you can clearly see that...

... KyoAni's art is definitely superior.

This is a wonderful spread ^_^ featuring the furibayashi sisters and nagisa. After Lucky Star, I'm going to have another season of purple hair twins for the next season ^_^. Lets hope that this season is filled with better luck for all anime lovers.

This picture above is from the new anime "Ef a tale of memories". Some generous fanservice given there, no? Anyway this show is one of the more anticipated series of the winter season after CLANNAD. Will be hearing more about it soon I guess...

Note: there are more content in the magazine, including tons of scans, but these are the ones that interest me more.

Newspapers...

Just my opinion but seems like nowadays, our mainstream newspapers are getting lamer by the day. Either there's little or no actual content, or its full of pro government propanganda...

Today's Sunday Times page 6 has a full page devoted to our dear PM deflecting criticism, explaining on why section 377A stays and discouraging Singlish.

Headline 1: S'pore just for the rich? Not possible, says PM
吾: Sure, but you just have to factor in the middle class to get enough support for winning

An old article from yawning bread for reference



Look from the 5th to 10th dencile. All registering net income growth, especially the top 20% of our population, $1000 and more. Assuming most of them voted in support of the incumbent, then 20% of the votes are already assured. For the low income class (1-4th decile), give them election goodies to win them over, and there you have it, the election could be won.

Headline 2: Views divided, so law on gay sex stays
吾: Please read Mr Wang's Post

Quote Mr Wang: " The fact that only 7 out of 10 Singaporeans frown on homosexuality probably puts it in the same league as premarital sex. Divorce. Interracial marriages. Opposition politicians. Integrated resorts. And PM Lee’s latest proposed changes to the CPF system.

...why should Section 377 of the Penal Code threaten gays with life imprisonment?"

虽说道不同不相为谋,但总得讲理嘛...
Where did our pledge go to? Seems like the words "Regardless of race, language or religion" and "Based on Justice and Equality" has not gotten to the heads of our people after 40 years. We are still stuck in the 19th century, where laws are made according to the nobles and their religion.

Headline 3: Don't base national identity on speaking Singlish
吾: Its nothing wrong.

National identity is something the Government has strived to produce. When it was back in the industrial age of Singapore, jobs were aplenty and incomes across all segments of the population rose. In constrast to the post WW2 era, life was definitely better off. Making people feel patriotic was easy when people have more money to spend and more food on the table as compared to our neighbours. Now that our neighbours have reached similar levels of development, we find patriotism hard to maintain when the bread becomes harder to put on the table.

A sort of pidgin local language might not be that bad if it can maintain love for the nation. Although food for the soul cant entirely replace the real deal, at least it makes life for livable.

Lastly, I thank all (if any read, ahaha) who took time to read the coarse opinions that I've espoused today.

Shinzo Abe's resignation

http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/asia-pacific/6990519.stm

Brief timeline....

Promoted to PM after Koizumi retired
Chosed his new cabinet
Plans to strengthen Japan's global role
Multiple minister scandals
Led LDP to a "loss" in the GE
Opposition calls for his resignation, Abe stood onto his term
Opposition plans to block renewing refueling US planes
Abe threatened to resign if the refueling did not pass through parliament
Abe resigned before parliament starts...

Ara, History will not give Abe a good CV from what has happened so far...he's unlucky with his hand picked ministers and left LDP weakened, something that has not happened since WW2 ended.

ODEX moves......

Read more about it here.

http://www.darkmirage.com/2007/09/03/no-more-backlogged-letters-from-odex/

It appears that Stephen Sing, one of the directors of ODEX Singapore has stated that the company will not send sue letters to people who have downloaded in the past but stopped from today, September 3, 2007 for the rest of their lives.

If the people did not abide, then ODEX will press ahead and sue people with past records attached.
======================================

I will state again what I written at darkmirage's website: Businesses have no right to act as Gods over things that are not theirs.

难道吾只能屈服于奸雄的专权吗?
