A notice about any of my soundtrack downloads

It has come to my attention that one of my soundtracks, 3D Maze Man, had it's download link go dead a few months ago. If anyone notices one of my other OST rip links have gone bust, shoot me an e-mail at superjustin@optonline.net or give me a heads up at @Superjustinbros at Twitter.

I will also be providing MEGA mirrors for these downloads.

Resurrecting more dead stuff: Super Cyber Boys Company

Oh yeah we're doing that again. This time I'm going to show off something that I once brought up several years back without giving much info on what it was, and now here's a more in-depth analysis.

What you're looking at is a short-lived field play/stage show from Japan in 2008, featuring a trio dressed up in white and orange named the "CCB Super Cyber Boys" (C-C-B 超サイバーボーイ), presented by "Tokyo P.R.O."

Unfortunately, pretty much everything associated with the trio is now all-dead and I can't seem to discover anything worthwhile via Google. All that pretty much remains is this promotional render with cartoon versions of the main trio released back when they first performed.

Of course there's also my attempt at making a colored render of the main band member but it's not really relevant:

Me and this blog today

So you're all probably wondering, why this blog doesn't get much updates nowadays?
Well, I'm sort of convinced that this blog doesn't grab the attention of many and so the incentive to post content of any sort is kinda low.
Course I post every now and then, just not as often as the blog's earlier years such as 2009 and 2010. And usually it's for the sake of archiving and/or showcasing something that I can't really show in full detail on devaintART, Twitter, etc.

If you want more frequent updates and activity, Twitter is probably your best bet. Of course deviantART also gets the occasional spark of activity and I'll often post art I make, commissions I receive and other photos to Instagram. For those that take interest in my current OC's, the Aozora Wiki still gets updated from time to time with new character details, though the Aozora blog is

Otherwise my B-Day is approaching next Wednesday, and I'm very prepared for it. Additionally I've had decent luck with four local and semi-local cons this year, iCon in March, Castle Point Anime Convention in April, EMcon in May, and just yesterday AnimeNEXT for June. I hope to explore a few more over the course of the year till I return to all these in 2017.

It's a Wonderful World FANBOOK - all of what I saved

Back in October 2009 I linked some pages from a World Ends with You-themed doujinshi by Yu-Mi Yamase and PikaSoldiers. It was called the "It's a Wonderfull World FAN BOOK" series.
Yes it did have yaoi, but we're not here for the boy on boy action.
Because there's actually some decent artwork scattered through those doujins (I think there were eight of them total?).
Here's all the pages I happened to have saved on my hard drive since the site that hosted the images got erased (pun intended)

Sunset Justin

So I guess this is what happened to Justin after his series got canceled back in 2009 to make way for Aozora's Adventure; he became a Sunset Overdrive character obsessed with denim and Hawaiian shirts and split himself into a female counterpart.

...Might make the male my personal avatar, depends.

CHAINS


If you're curious who the guy in the center is, it's Wells form the obscure MMORPG Zone 4.
Yet another example of "Good or otherwise decent character design in otherwise mediocre game".

Otaku-Ball: First Public Release!



It's been a while in the making, but my first major project is now ready for release!

This here is Otaku Ball, a game of mine that I jointly developed with "Mr. Block" (with him doing all the programing/coding). Designed to be a tribute to the genre, Otaku-Ball is an advanced Breakout clone made in the LÖVE engine that brings forth some of the best design concepts from different Breakout and Arkanoid clones (such as Aquanoid, Electranoid, Krypton Egg, Alpha Bounce, and Blast Thru) into one convent package. It comes with around 40 different block types, 135 powerups and power downs, and a handful of other features.

Otaku-Ball also includes a fully functional editor- with access to many handy tools for developing one's own levels and level sets. You can also adjust the powerup drop rates for each level/levelset to your liking.

Since this is only the first release, there are a number of features that are planned to be implemented in future releases, such as detailed field backgrounds, other enemies that aren't just the Electranoid Menacers, original sounds/music (the current version uses sounds ripped form other sources), and a full campaign with many different worlds, pathways, and boss battles. Twinks to existing features may also occur for better balancing.

Experience the thrill yourself:
