Himekoi Drama CD

Himekoi Drama CD


Once upon a time, back in August 2010, one of Japan's biggest social media network, Gree, launched Himekoi (日本名:ヒメこい), a dating sim perfect for those Japanese cellphone customers who had it with their DS days of playing Loveplus. In that cellphone game, players can choose to hang out with Nadeshiko, Ayane, or Maki.

Because of the character design too similar from Loveplus, Mino☆Taro, the person behind the Loveplus character design tweeted that “The art from Gree’s new gal game isn’t Mino☆Taro’s~!”. It even caused an outrage among fans because they look similar to Nene Anegasaki, Takane Manaka, and Rinko Kobayakawa. As a matter of fact, Himekoi was nothing but a complete knock-off of Loveplus. Didn't see that thing coming right?

Because of copyright issues, Gree decided to end the Himekoi service on February 2011 and yes, it was for their own cause. To compensate this, the people behind Himekoi seek help to Geneon Universal Entertainment for the Himekoi Drama CD, a drama CD which brings Emiri Kato, Mamiko Noto, and Kanae Ito reprising their roles as Nadeshiko, Ayane, and Maki. Also, an original character appeared exclusively on this drama CD under the name of Reina, played by Kana Hanazawa.

The theme song of the drama CD is Mimosa, which was sung by Kotoko. This was a good song to listen and in fact, the storyline is a little bit more decent. We are not sure if this drama CD is good enough for those to compensate for their damages and reputation of being a cheap knock-off to Loveplus. It's a forgive and forget for us if we listen to this drama CD.

Hyundai Veloster in a 100 Days To Heaven episode!

Hyundai Veloster in a 100 Days To Heaven episode!?


It's a "hot in smoke" on Philippine television.

A White Crystal-colored Hyundai Veloster made a surprise appearance on a September 23, 2011 episode of 100 Days To Heaven! Never seen that thing coming, did it?

Take note that HARI will not bring the Veloster to the Philippines because of its GDI engine not suitable for the Philippines' dirty petrol but one smart question is, how did that car appeared in the Philippines too soon even though HARI would never bring the Veloster.

We are sure that this white Veloster is a gray-market unit sourced from South Korea. Kuha mo?

The Final Bullet of Guns and Roses

The last bullet of ABS-CBN's action drama, Guns and Roses, has been shot. And on the final shot of this TV drama, Abel Marasigan (Robin Padilla) has to risk everything he had to save Raine (Bea Alonzo) and his mother from the clutches of his Tsong, Phillip (Pen Medina), and Marcus Aguilar (Diether Ocampo) before its too late (about 30 minutes to be exact according to Phillip).

While Raine is under Marcus' prying eyes, Abel approaches to his Tsong's hideout and settle the scores with him. He has 20 minutes left to save the both of them but can Abel make it even though he doesn't have much time?

He stormed through the hideout, using his blend of CQC to fend off against his Tsong's men and saved his mother. After rescuing Abel's mother, he's off to rescue Raine.

Raine was held hostage by Phillip, who was the real Senyor who murdered Abel's father, and the showdown between Abel and his Tsong begins. With all of the persuasion, their revelations are slowly revealing and with that, Phillip shot Abel and with Abel shot, Abel tries to choke Phillip but Raine tries to persuade Abel. With that, Abel freed Raine but Abel got shot again by Phillip but luckily, Raine obtained Abel's gun and shot Phillip but if that didn't work, Marcus approached and shot Phillip. The nightmare's over, Marcus has decided to turn himself in, and Abel has been forgiven to Raine for all the sins he committed to avenge his father's death.

Three years have passed, with Marcus imprisoned and Phillip was in mental correction, Raine finally give birth to a newborn baby. After that, Abel unknowingly appeared behind Raine and the story of "Guns and Roses" have come to an end.

All about eAssist

2012 Buick LaCrosse


2012 Buick Regal

Back in November 2010, at the Los Angeles Auto Show, General Motors announced the next generation BAS (Belted Alternator System) Hybrid system called "eAssist" and the first models to be equipped with this new mild hybrid system are the 2012MY Buick LaCrosse and 2012MY Buick Regal.

Before we explain about the new eAssist system, let's talk about what just happened at the Buick LaCrosse and the Buick Regal for the 2012 Model Year. The change was the trim names. As of now, Buick will start ditching the CXL/CX/CXS trim names in favor of something specific like Base, Convenience, Leather, Premium, or Touring. That's all, let's explain about eAssist:

The new eAssist system features a powerful 115-Volt Lithium-ion battery sourced from Hitachi, generating a 20HP, 79lb-ft electric motor that provides aid to the 2.4L ECOTEC engine. This new system will provide useful features such as idling stop system, regenerative braking, and a fuel economy of 36MPG (15.3km/L) highway. The new eAssist system comes standard on the 2012 Buick LaCrosse but on the 2012 Buick Regal, it may be considered an optional feature. Either way, they both come with a modified version of the 6T40 6-speed AT FWD transaxle.

NASAAN KA ELISA?

Uh, excuse me. We're not referring to some new drama called "Nasaan Ka Elisa?"

Where was I? Oh yes! The singer behind the theme songs from To Aru Kagaku no Railgun and Hayate no Gotoku 2nd Season of course!

Don't worry she's okay. Word from the mouth is that she's pausing her career due to health concerns according to her agency, Smile Company. This announcement came also with the cancellation her October 2 concert at the Tokyo Globe-za theater, especially her future concerts as well.

As of now, her official twitter account "elisa_tsubuyaki" has been removed for now. Sad to let her go but this is for her good cause.

マクラーレンF1のすべて

"I've always dreamt about doing a really high performance sports car on the road" - Gordon Murray

Back in the 1990's a decade before the rise of the Bugatti Veyron, a car company called McLaren created the world's most fastest supercar back then, under the name of McLaren F1. Just like the Bugatti Veyron, the McLaren F1 is one of the most exciting vehicles to drive for an elite driver. Just imagine, if you drive it on the streets of Tokyo, New York, Rome, Paris, London, especially Dubai, Geneva, and other exotic locations, it's no surprise that the McLaren F1 is highly seductive, even after a few decades have passed since its introduction to the world in May 1992, it still looks good enough. From its inception up until its demise in 1998, about 106 McLaren F1 models have been made and it costs half-a-million pounds back in 1993, making it the most expensive car to own back then.

McLaren F1 at Circuit de la Sarthe

The McLaren F1 is powered with the 6.1L V12 engine sourced from BMW, providing 627HP of power and 480.26ft-lb of torque. Fast fact that the McLaren F1's engine bay is lined with gold because gold is the best, it reflects, and a special 6-speed manual was developed because there is no existing gearbox that can survive the torque of the 6.1L BMW engine. The McLaren F1 is the world's first carbon fiber bodied car because most of the components are made of Carbon Fiber Reinforced Plastic. With such idea, the McLaren F1 weighs about 1140kg. What's so special is the interior because the driver's seat was positioned at the middle for some racing driver sensation. What a cool idea that Mr. Gordon Murray made it and I thank him for that. For a trivia: did you know that the McLaren F1's preferred audio system is Kenwood?

What will The Stig reacts to this one? Some say,
The Stig was impressed to drive the McLaren F1 or not

In Gran Turismo 5, the McLaren F1 costs about 1,000,000 credits and you need to be at Level 17 (A-spec or B-spec) to purchase this wonderful machine Gordon Murray created. Once you own it, you can tune it as far as about 840HP of power and 970kg of weight. That's lighter than a fully tuned Bugatti Veyron that weighs about 1424kg. If you've already watched a drag race between the McLaren F1 and the Bugatti Veyron in Dubai on a certain Top Gear episode, you should know that the McLaren F1 is ahead against the Veyron on a 0-100kph run but by 240kph, the Bugatti Veyron's spoiler kicks in, giving much speed to overtake the F1 and obliterate it. If the real-life McLaren F1 has no ABS and no Traction Control, I think you might apply it on GT5 as well, but without these driving aids, the McLaren F1 is hard to master because of the traction and the braking but once you'll get a hang of it, you'll get used to it.

Looks like Top Gun

Not exactly as good as a Bugatti Veyron but the McLaren F1 is finely the most elegant exotic GT5 players can try not only because of its heritage or its power but it can be a perfect car to take it on a Photo Travel. It seems that Mr. Gordon Murray created this machine just so to become the ultimate driving machine ever remembered by many. I'm sure most owners of the legendary McLaren F1 are very happy about the way this car should be thanks to its seamless reputation. It's something that made me smiled.

There's no way you can't fit as much children in one van!



In weird news: someone from China was caught driving 64 kids inside the van! Wouldn't you believe it? One time, the police pulled over the driver of a small van because of the overloading law. When the cops saw what's inside this overloaded van, the cop saw that this van packs about 66 passengers - 64 kids and 2 adults. What an unbelievable attempt to fit so much kids inside the van and unfortunately, the driver of the van was quoted "punished" according to related laws and regulations.

We're not sure how the heck did he do that, especially when the seats passenger seats' been replaced with benches...

Mitsubishi wants its own version of the Nissan Fuga

2011 Nissan Fuga Hybrid


With Nissan and Mitsubishi Motors' partnership on full circle, it seems that Mitsubishi Motors want its own version of the Nissan Fuga (Infiniti M) Y51 for their successor to the Diamante sedan.

Thanks to the "give-take" scenario for the likes of Mitsubishi kei cars such as the Minicab and eK Wagon rebadged as Nissan Clipper Rio and Nissan Otti (and a possibility of another Delica based on the Nissan NV200 Vanette that will slot between the Delica D5 and the Suzuki Solio-based Delica D2), it seems that the partnership between the two carmakers gotten themselves "leveled up" and for that, a Mitsubishi version of the Nissan Fuga will be on effect by next year.

2012 Mitsubishi Minicab MIEV

Not only Mitsubishi wants its own version of the Nissan Fuga Y51 but Nissan wants its own version of the Mitsubishi Minicab MIEV as well. We are sure that the Nissan-Mitsubishi partnership will be surely be a good one much like the partnership between Toyota and Fuji Heavy Industries. Looking forward to see them as an ally rather than formidable rivals.

Izah Calsado

Is Izah Calsado making ligaw-ligaw with the Philippine president? She said that's not true but if she has the chance, she said "Sorry, di ko siya type eh. Sorry Mr. President, help-off kasi ako. Welcome kang tumakbo, I run every morning." In fact, she has no affinity to politicians, making it a different run.

There's something funnier than that!

...And now, Jane Panda (Melai Cantiveros) is back for some more aerobics! However, there's something funnier than a simple "inhale exhale", in fact, that was funny!

And now on SA AKIN ANG HULING HALAKHAK...

Busou Shinki Battle Masters Mk.2

Busou Shinki Battle Masters Mk.2


With the success of last year's Busou Shinki Batle Masters PSP game, the introduction of the all new Busou Shinki Batle Masters Mk.2 enhances the Busou Shinki experience even further through new parts, new battles, new arenas, new challenges, and a new wide selection of Busou Shinki models waiting for you to own it.

And by saying wide selection, Battle Masters Mk.2 offers some of your favorite Busou Shinki models such as Arnval Mk.2 (CV: Kana Asumi), Strarf Mk.2 (CV: Misato Fukuen), Howling (CV: Eri Kitamura), Maochao (CV: Mai Hashimoto), Fubuki (CV: Yukari Fukui), Zelnogrard (CV: Ryoko Shiraishi), Arc (CV: Yui Horie), Yda (CV: Yukari Tamura), Altlene (CV: Megumi Nakajima), and Altines (CV: Kaori Mizuhashi). There was an addition of new Busou Shinki models you might be highly interested with such as Eukrante (CV: Emiri Kato), Ianeira (CV: Marina Inoue), Tsugaru (CV: Rie Kugimiya), and much more. Other Busou Shinki models can be attainable by purchasing some add-on contents from the Playstation Network Store. Each model costs about 600 Japanese Yen and it takes some minor space on your PSP's Memory Stick Duo.

The goal of this game is simple, buy your very own Busou Shinki and work your way to the top to become an F1 Champion while winning the heart of your Busou Shinki model. This ain't going to be easy because you will need some parts and modifications which are essential for your Shinki's speed, defense, attack, evasion, and others.

This gameplay is just like the first one, it has some Zone of the Enders-style gameplay but only you have to take down your rival Shinki in order to win. When you're taking a break from a battle, you can take your Shinki outside and chat. It's like Zone of the Enders meets Loveplus, making it a unique chemistry but your duty to become the F1 champion is a long road ahead.

Plus more, there is a Profile Import feature where your hard work done from the first Battle Masters video game can be carried over to Mk.2 so you can have as much fun if possible but still a long road ahead to become an F1 champion.

LIMITED EDITION:
The limited edition packaging, exclusively on Konamistyle, not only includes the game but two Busou Shinki figures such as Arnval Mk.2 and Strarf Mk. 2 are included, bonus DLC card, swimwear editions of both Arnval Mk.2 and Strarf Mk. 2, two sets of folders, and an Original Soundtrack of the game as well. The standard version is available now with the limited edition will be available at the end of September.



It's true! - Infiniti M Hybrid's the fastest hybrid car!

2012 Infiniti M Hybrid


The Infiniti M Hybrid, known in Japan as the Nissan Fuga Hybrid, is the first high-performance hybrid that delivers the power of the V8 engine and the fuel efficiency of a 4-cylinder engine thanks to the new Infiniti Direct Response Hybrid system.

By interest, the Infiniti M Hybrid sets a new Guinness World Record as the fastest hybrid vehicle while running straight at the Santa Pod Raceway in the United Kingdom.

According to Nissan Motor Co., Ltd., the Infiniti M Hybrid's time of 5.5 seconds is on par with the 1982 Lamborghini Countach within a few tenths of some Porsches, Ferraris, and Aston Martins.

This is going to be "up in smoke at Tokyo Bay"!

Does Daihatsu really need Bruce Willis to do the Mira e:S commercial?

With the recent launch of the world's most fuel efficient gasoline-fed vehicle, the Daihatsu Mira e:S, this Japanese kei car maker launched two unique TV commercials for the Mira e:S aired in Japan one day after the car's launch date. So, why would we need Bruce Willis to do this ad? Besides, Bruce Willis is an action star, why would you bring a star in a reasonably priced car commercial?


LOL at that ad where Bruce Willis said it wrong. "DAIMOTSU MIRO OOS!"

Mr. Willis, that's "Daihatsu Mira e:S". ミライース!

Greetings from special agents Elysia de Lute Ima and Haqua d'rot Herminium

Greetings from special agents Elysia de Lute Ima and Haqua d'rot Herminium


This looks promising... If you already watched the whole The World God Only Knows (日本名:神のみぞ知るセカイII) series and read the whole manga volumes, you should be familiar with the special agents from Hell who helped Keima Katsuragi on such misadventures and this is it. Elysia de Lute Ima (or Elsie for short) and Haqua d'rot Herminium (or Haqua for short) are together at last on their own full album titled Greetings from special agents Elysia de Lute Ima and Haqua d'rot Herminium. Both Elsie and Haqua had the best audience impact on the anime series but we want to know what is like having them singing together for their first full album and now for the first time, thanks to a generous Kaminomi fan, we can tell you.

Geneon Universal Entertainment seeks this full album as a delicious investment as much as toys. With Elsie (CV: Kanae Ito) and Haqua (CV: Saori Hayami) back to back, we will be able to tell how does this new album has the biggest thrill and come on, this is our Enzo for the day!

This album contains 10 unique tracks made specifically on the album such as Nonstop!! Hunters, アタフタNight & Day!, ご機嫌いかが?, 1'st EVOLUTION→, Good Night Song ~同じ空の下で~, and much more.

A limited edition includes not just the music CD but also a special DVD with the music video of Nonstop!! Hunters by Kanae Ito and Saori Hayami as Elsie and Haqua.

Seems that my solution needs refining but when the next time you woke up and realize that you are not along but you need some help here, remember the Kaketama-tai are here to help.

IS FACTS 開発へのこだわり - Vol. 06

In honor of IS (Infinite Stratos) DVD & Blu-Ray final volume's release...

IS (Infinite Stratos) Blu-Ray Final Volume

Our guests will be the main IS girls (or as we say it, アイエス・ガール) such as Houki, Cecilia, Rin, Charlotte, and Laura. As a matter of fact, this is the final volume of the IS DVD and BD range so let's wrap it up something special. Besides, it's all about language, connection, and intelligence but that's nothing, a hybrid of "mech" and "bishoujo" is that's what "IS" is all about. Let's take this finale something special.

I shall be the Lexus IS (for this I'll be the TRD LEXUS IS F CIRCUIT CLUB SPORT) and I'll interview one IS gal at the time from Rin, Cecilia, Charles, Laura, and Houki. Perhaps, they'll should start asking now. Think of it like AutocOne's JOY×女医 ~新型車、診察しちゃうぞ!~, only different.

Location: Shanghai International Circuit (上海国际赛车场)

Fan Rinin

...as we approach at the first corner...

Lexus IS: So, your name is Rin right? Fan Rinin or Huang Ling Yin? Should I call you Rin just for sake?

Rin: (Hysterically) How did you know mine? Wow! When I first taking a seat at something they call it "IS" but I got confused for calling it Infinite Stratos. Are you some kind of...car?

Lexus IS: That's right. And thanks for calling me that because that's how "IS" stands for, Rin. Excuse me as we're taking on the sixth corner of this track.

Rin: WHOA!

... as the IS corners through the sixth, seventh, eighth, ninth, and tenth corner of the track...

Lexus IS: Rin, hold on tight! We're cornering through the 11th and 12th corner of the track!

...as the IS corners, we can see a big smile on Rin's face!
Rin: You're amazing! You kinda remind me of Ichika!

Lexus IS: Yeah, right, besides, if Ichika was there, he would explain more about this.

Rin: Like what?

Lexus IS: Never mind. Just to tell you that you are the nicest person I have ever let you sitting in the driver seat of the IS. If you were on my steering wheel, you would have called me a...

Rin: Shenlong? Yes! Yes I know! (Kissing the steering wheel)

Lexus IS: Hey! Wha-?! What are you doing?

Rin: You're the best! I want to see more of you!

Lexus IS: Can you please calm down Fan Rinin? We're almost at the finish line!

...and that concludes it. Let's move on to the United Kingdom.

Location: Silverstone Circuit (The Grand Prix Circuit)

Cecilia Alcott

...as we get through the starting line...

Cecilia: You remind me of my Blue Tears...and also Ichika. Are you...my IS?

Lexus IS: Yes, Cecilia Alcott. Yes I am. For an English woman like you, I appreciated your charm and wit not only because you have something special, it is because...ugh I can't explain it.

Cecilia: What? Oh come on! When I sat through your beautiful leather seat, I never felt this kind of reaction before because this says "IS". It was like what is it? Is this the Infinite Stratos?

Lexus IS: Cecilia, please. Stop confusing me. Hold on as we corner through the Farm Curve to the Village Corner of the track.

...the Lexus IS manages to corners through the Farm Curve to the Village Corner of the Silverstone GP but Cecilia seems to be unhappy.

Lexus IS: Why are you still unhappy, Cecilia?

Cecilia: As far as I know, this is not the IS I know!

Lexus IS: Oh, really?

...Cecilia was shocked when the Lexus IS cornered through the Luffield Corner and went straight through the Woodcote Corner. By the time we crossed Copse Corner, Cecilia had a smile on her face and started to get excited.

Cecilia: (Laugh) WOW! You really are an amazing piece of machine! All these moments is like I'm spending time with Ichika but you, you may be a machine but I had a lot of respect for you!

Lexus IS: Cecilia., knock it off. You making me blush...

...and for the real excitement, the Lexus IS cornered through the Maggotts Corner, Becketts Corner and the Chapel Curve until we made it to the finish line.

Cecilia: You're starting to like me! I like you! You know what, we're not such bad partners at all! You made me complete after you went past through the difficult corners. What's your secret?

Lexus IS: I have no secrets. Probably thanks to the engineers who made me a better suspension. I may have flaws but thanks to you, I'm glad you find me to be enjoyable.

Cecilia: Yes I know! Should I start to kiss you for a while?

Lexus IS: Wait, what? Cecilia what are you doing! Hey! Wait! Stop it!

... okay that concludes it. Let's go to Le Mans...

Location: Circuit De La Sarthe (Circuit des 24 Heures)

Charlotte "Charles" Dunois

... as we went through the starting line, we find her getting nervous as the Lexus IS maneuvers through the first corner. Even through the Lexus IS cornered through distant gaps, she's still a little bit nervous.

Charlotte: Um, are you some kind of a...car?

Lexus IS: Don't be shy Charlotte. Of course I am. Why would you expect that this car has the name "IS" on it?

Charlotte: I thought you remind me more of my IS, the Rafale Revive Custom II, but you're a bit different.

Lexus IS: Yes, I maybe different than your IS you used but you want me to see the different side of me?

...and now, the Lexus IS pushes through the Mulsanne Straight, readying for its top speed attempt. Charlotte got startled upon the Lexus IS' top speed.

Charlotte: WHAT ARE YOU DOING! PLEASE STOP IT! YOU'RE SCARING ME!

...the Lexus IS cornered through the chicane and after that, it went back, pushing its top speed to the max! Charlotte got panicked!

Charlotte: WAAAHHHH!!!! NO!!!!

...after such top speed, it went through the second chicane and after that, back for some top speed madness! Charlotte couldn't keep up!

Charlotte: NO!!!! WHAT EXACTLY ARE YOU! HOW CAN YOU DO THIS?!

Lexus IS: Because...I am...your IS! I am your very own Rafale Revive Custom II!

Charlotte: THAT CAN'T BE!!!

...as we went through the end of the Mulsanne Straight, Charlotte questioned.

Charlotte: So you were my Rafale Revive Custom II? That's impossible! As far as I know, you are some kind of an insane machine!

Lexus IS: Sorry if you had to call me an "insane machine" but look around the cup holders. I have something special for you.

Charlotte: Cafe au lait? Wow! My favorite! You know what? I'm sorry if I had to call you an insane machine. You must be very generous to me, kinda like Ichika.

Lexus IS: Really? Besides, that coffee someone made it must be Ichika. He must have made this whole cafe au lait for you. Why don't you taste it?

...as we went through the Arnage corner, Charlotte took a sip of cafe au lait. Charlotte seems to be happy when she didn't realize that this cafe au lait was superbly delicious! We can see Charlotte smiling.

Charlotte: This cafe au lait tastes delicious! I would never realize how gentle you are not only because you are fast but because you are somewhat special to me!

Lexus IS: As I said, I am special indeed.

Charlotte: You know what, I guess you're not such a mean machine after all.

Lexus IS: Indeed I am not. Okay Charlotte, hold steady because here comes the finish line.

...and so, we went through the finish line...

Charlotte: Thanks for cheering me up. As of now, you are my IS now. I'm glad we've met each other as friends.

Lexus IS: You're welcome. If you need me Charlotte, feel free to get inside.

...and that concludes it. Ready for the Ring?

Location: Nurburgring (Nordschleife)


Laura Bodewig

Before Laura gets inside the Lexus IS, she asks this car some questions...

Laura: Is this the right venue? Are you my IS?

Lexus IS: You must be Laura Bodewig, right?

Laura: Indeed I am, who is this?

Lexus IS: I heard that was your codename given by the German military and you were a part of Schwarzer Hase (Black Rabbit).

Laura: Wait, how did you know all about me?

Lexus IS: Well, Miss Laura, why don't you sit inside my driver seat and see for yourself?

Laura: I don't know but okay, I'll seat through...the driver's seat. Ugh, I wonder who set up this bizarre venue and why would I have to get inside...a car that was called IS?

...Laura sits on the driver's seat and closes the door. This Lexus IS starts its 20.8km torture at the Nurburgring Nordschleife. After three minutes and still on the corners...

Laura: Well, I got to admit it, you're not such a bad machine after all. You remind me of my Schwarzer Roegen. You maybe tough like me, but I think you had a good side at all.

Lexus IS: What about you? Do you have...the lighter side of yourself?

Laura: Eh...What? I'm sorry. I don't really understand what you said.

Lexus IS: Oh come on. Last time, you got hit by some volley ball and then you said you never looked to be...

Laura: CUTE?!

...after a few minutes, with Laura got provoked, the Lexus IS cornered through the Carousel. After cornering through the carousel with Laura still got her head on fire after all of the teasing, it's off to the Wipperman to Brunnchen. While at the Pflanzgarten...

Laura: Who do you think you are? What exactly were you made of?!

Lexus IS: Laura, I am your Schwarzer Roegen. This IS is your IS, remember?

Laura: What? My IS? That's impossible, I would take granted by this...Japanese-made machine!

...at the Galgenkopf...

Lexus IS: Laura, are you ready to see what I can do next?

Laura: Like what?!

...it's off at the straight part of the Nordschleife, the Dottinger Hohe. Laura got shocked when she experience the top speed of the Lexus IS. With such top speed, she couldn't keep up until she say...

Laura: WHOA!

...at the end of the Dottinger Hohe, it went straight from the Antoniusbuche, Tiergarten, Hohenrain, until it went straight to the end of the lap. Laura asked...

Laura: (Panting) You must really be the Schwarzer Roegen I had. You really are an amazing machine. I would gladly take back everything I said about you.

Lexus IS: That's a nice way to say it, Laura.

Laura: I'm glad to meet up with the one-of-a-kind IS. So, what's next?

...and now, we'll wrap it up at Fuji...Speedway!

Location: Fuji Speedway (富士スピードウェイ)

Houki Shinonono

Houki Shinonono stops by at the Fuji Speedway's Pit Buildings. At some pit area at the Fuji Speedway, she met an elusive Lexus IS F CCS-R, waiting for her to get seated. Houki asked...

Houki: So, are you my IS? (I wonder what my sis is up to...)

Lexus IS: Houki Shinonono, right? Yes, I am the IS

Houki: But you don't look more like my IS, the Akatsubaki. Are you some kind of a...car? And why did you want me to meet at this...racetrack?

Lexus IS: (Sniff) Mmmmm...that's a nice smell from your hair. What shampoo are you using?

Houki: Eh? You can smell my hair? I'm not sure but that's TSUBAKI Shining shampoo with natural tsubaki oil.

Lexus IS: Tsubaki? More like...Akatsubaki! (Mmmm...)

Houki: What did you said?

Lexus IS: Never mind, get inside and you'll see how worthy I am to be called the Akatsubaki...

...Houki sits at the driver seat. The Lexus IS F CCS-R exits the pit building and races through the straight part of the Fuji Speedway...

Lexus IS: Hold steady Houki, this is going to be a long brake!

Houki: Wait what?!

...The first corner has been a test between Houki and the IS...

Houki: You're starting to scare me! What was that for?

Lexus IS: Ready for another?

Houki: Another what?! WHOA!

...with so many technical corners at the Fuji Speedway, Houki gets a little more tense. When they went through the chicane...

Houki: Hey, watch out!

...The Lexus IS F CCS-R braked through the chicane and turned right and left.  As they made it on the final corners of the Fuji Speedway...

Houki: I've never thought you were as sharp and cool as the Akatsubaki. How can you do all this?

Lexus IS: Because Houki, I am your Akatsubaki! But don't tell something to your sister, ok? It's just the both of us. Woman to machine, right?

Houki: Uh, okay. I'll never tell.

Lexus IS: Alright, let's go back to the pit building!

...The Lexus IS F CCS-R went back to the pit building. Houki exited the car and then...

Houki: Uh  hey. I just want to say, thank you for spending some time with me. If only Ichika was there, he wouldn't complain more about this wild ride.

Lexus IS: You think so? Look inside, I have something special for you...

Houki finds something special inside the Lexus IS F CCS-R...

Houki: WOW! Infinite Stratos BD Volume 6! Thank you so much!

Lexus IS: You're welcome!

...before she left...

Houki: Just one word, your interior does smell like my Tsubaki shampoo!

Lexus IS: Tee-hee!

The Enemy from Without...

2012 Daihatsu Move Custom

2012 Mazda Demio

2012 Daihatsu Mira e:S

So, the Daihatsu Mira e:S has arrived and claimed the title of being the world's most fuel efficient gasoline-fed car today because of the record breaking 30.km/L in Japan's JC08 mode scale, meaning that's 32.0km/L in 10-15 Mode scale, making it higher than the Mazda Demio 13-SKYACTIV's 30.km/L fuel economy and the fifth-generation Daihatsu Move's 27.0km/L.

Didn't realize that the records really put a slam in the fronts of the Daihatsu Move and the Mazda Demio because it the world of fuel efficiency, the higher the fuel economy, the better, but we're not talking about hybrid cars, we're talking about gasoline-fed cars. With today's gas prices, people are looking for fuel-efficient cars but they prefer more about gasoline-fed cars because that's the norm. Thanks to the fuel efficiency of the new Daihatsu Mira e:S, it seems that someone finally found their new partner on the road.

This is how you call it "The Enemy from Without" and no, we're not referring to something from an old video game called Incredible Crisis. We are referring about the arrival of the Daihatsu Mira e:S because of the fuel efficiency that puts the new Daihatsu Move and the Mazda Demio SKYACTIV to shame.
