Tokyo Dirt

Speedtractor teams up with friends, Animal Boat CC and Iceblock Films to find that there is indeed dirt in Tokyo…you just have to look for it.

Japan is one of the places that I need to visit, there is so much I want to see there yet I haven’t had the chance. There are those who follow the rules to the T in Japan, and then there are those who live outside the rules and this case this is what Tokyo Dirt is, a look into the other side of motorcycling culture in Japan. There is a different feeling for those who love motorcycles, and crosses all the barriers of borders, race and language, it is its own culture.

Animegraphy 2013 – This Is Why I Love Anime

This is why I love anime, it brings across so many emotions you are bound to connect with one, and it gets you going, your blood pumping, your adrenaline rushing, and you immerse yourself in it, and its never enough. This year I managed to catch up with a lot of Anime but to the end of 2013 I fell back again, now I’m back at it again and this Youtube video says a lot.

Anime List 09/13

AttackOnTitan

I have been better about watching Anime and getting back into it, trying at least one episode a day, the thing is that its so addictive, its had just to stay at one episode a day, you want to watch 10. My list has been kept full but I am sure to watch one or two episodes when I can, and some of these shows are really good with Attack on Titan being the best by far, waiting for each episode to come out is killing me. Bleach on the other hand I’m loving, I sort of skim through the filler episodes but watch the storylines religiously when I get into it.

Jojos

What I Am Watching:

  • Attack On Titan (Shingeki no Kyojin) – The Best Anime this Season by Far! Love it!
  • Bleach – Catching Up And Loving it, I’m at 314 & only 52 Episodes Left, Loving it!
  • Gargantia on the Verdurous Planet – A Very Cool Mecha Anime

Anime List 07/13

bleach2

It’s been 6 months since I have updated this list and I have fallen back majorly on my anime intake. I just got caught up with a lot of work and then there were so many shows to follow up on that I barely watched any anime, but now I am fully immersed in it and I now know what I was missing. There are some great shows and I am catching up on them right away. Its like I’m going full throttle into anime again watching 10 episodes at a time, when I have 5 minutes I watch anime, I watch it whenever I am doing something and I can read the subtitles at the same time, I love this stuff.

AttackOnTitan

What I Am Watching:

  • Attack On Titan (Shingeki no Kyojin) – Very intense Anime, it really pulls you in
  • Bleach – Catching Up And Loving it, from 198 to 246 in a few days, Loving it!
  • Gargantia on the Verdurous Planet – A Very Cool Mecha Anime
  • Sword Art Online – Finishing Up A Great Story
  • Valvrave the Liberator – Action Packed Mecha – Enjoying the Fight Scenes

Toyota GT-86

GT86_01

Making Driving Fun Again.

That is the main description after driving this car. Toyota wanted a sports car that is affordable and fun, a long time ago there were a lot of affordable sports cars, but once the performance race came into play they just kept getting more and more expensive. The idea behind this machine is to keep it simple and fun, putting in the bare minimum into the car to make a driver happy. I got my hands on the car a while back and had my fun with it, it has to be a manual to be enjoyed.

GT86_02

The machine is underpowered, there is no question about that, don’t expect it to push you back into your seat like a jetplane, but it does give you the rush of driving a fast car, especially because of two simple factors. The car is spunky, if you are driving the manual version you figure out it’s sweet spots, and this car should only be sold in manual because that is the true way to enjoy it. Secondly the car handles like a go kart, stuck to the ground, you can throw the car around, its light and it feels like your driving a toy car, but it holds on the corners and I love that about the suspension.

GT86_03

Toyota built this car in mind with people who want to modify it. It has to be modified, there is no question about that, everyone who has ever wanted a Toyota Supra wanted to modify it, and the GT-86 was based on the rich history of the AE86 that is a legend in the Japanese Automotive circles. This machine will bring back the days when Fast & Furious first came out, there will be no one GT-86 the same as the other, and the parts to modify the car is relatively cheap compared to other sports cars.

GT86_04

This machine needs a power upgrade to be a bit more fun, but when you upgrade the power you also need to upgrade the suspension and brakes to match. The best part of the GT86 is that is honestly very easy to drive and handle, at 200 bhp that is the case, but when you add the much need 100 bhp to get it to 300 bhp this car will handle very differently. So other modifications need to be done to get it back to the ease of driving and amazing stock handling that you get used to.

GT86_05

The interior of the car is simple, and that is the best thing about it, I honestly love the start button on the car, its like you are ready to race, and the AC is great but the sound system is basically crap and you need to modify that. This specific one has a modified head unit but other parts need to be modified such as the speakers and the bass to get it to the quality that you want.

GT86_06

You can literally modify this car any which way you want, but one thing is a fact, this is the perfect car from Toyota and nobody makes one like it. This car was abused during GulfRun, and I abused it for the three weeks that I had it when I took it from K, thanks K.

2013 Infiniti QX56 – The Beast

QX5620132

I tried this car the first time around for three days in February, this time around I had a chance to drive the car for exactly 17 days and it is a beast, and I can’t blame anyone for loving this machine. Infinite have an amazing machine on their hands, excellent navigation, simple controls, very comfortable and spacious interior.

Things That I love:

  • 400 Horsepower Beast
  • Looks Like A Whale Or Rhino From the Front, Intimidating Machine
  • It handles and is fast, it accelarates like a rocket for its size
  • Extremely comfortable interior, drove it for 5.5 hours straight without a problem
  • Excellent sound system and navigation
  • Substantially Cheaper then the Lexus
  • Solid Machine, it can handle anything you can throw at it, and I roughed it up a bit
  • Lots of options to control rear seats and AC from the front in an intuitive way
  • Excellent Cameras all on sides and it works great when parking
  • Great Maneuverability, surprisingly fits in amazing places

Honestly I was very surprised how much I liked the QX56, it surpassed my expectations. I am extremely loyal to Toyota because the car just lasts after taking so much torture from my use, but this machine is a beast and I am seriously impressed. I am keeping it in mind in the coming future for an SUV choice. And I wouldn’t buy the Lexus over the Infinite, doesn’t make any sense, its a better car, more options, more powerful, and for a lesser price.

KyoukaiSenjounoHorizon

SANSHIRO – MAD HURRICANE

The first time around I loved having the Senshiro Jomaro model from Fewture, then while skimming Ebay I found this other Sanshiro model, it isn’t made out of metal but Vinyl. I went on a bidding war for it, the first time around I lost, the guy big over $1500 for it, but the second time around I got it for about $430 so in comparison I got a much better deal. I started checking out old school episodes to find Mad Hurricane, he is the bad guy in the anime and got a few pics of the Jumaro and Mad Hurricane together, very cool addition to the collection.

Review: Brave 10

Plot Summary: A year before the battle of Sekigahara that ended the Sengoku Period, the ninja Saizou Kirigakure meets the miko Nami Isa as she’s attacked by assassins. Her shrine was destroyed by Tokugawa Ieyasu for siding with Yukimura Sanada. Meanwhile, Sanada has been gathering ten warriors known as Sanada’s Brave 10, who have the power to change history. As they gather one by one, Nami’s own mysterious power awakens.

Ninjas, Samurais, thrown into a political battle of lords, and 10 different fighters who somehow end up in Yukimura Sanada’s camp. The story is pretty good with a good amount of comedy and suspense thrown into the mix, and who doesn’t like when Ninja’s and Samurai start fighting. Isanami is one of the more interesting characters and her power’s seem to be showing themselves as things get worse for the 10. Its a fun anime that started off great but lacked a bit of substance, still it was a lot of fun to watch, I hope this story gets another season.
