「ハヤテのごとく!」の桂ヒナギク - 100のヴィ学

I miss you

Back in 4th quarter 2009, the Hayate no Gotoku 2nd Season Extra Figures made their debut as a prize figure from the famous UFO Catcher. Volume One was debuted in the end of 2009 and it features Nagi Sanzenin and Hinagiku Katsura. Volume Two debuted in 1st quarter 2010 with Maria and Hermione Ayasaki. I know, they had been there for a limited time and gone in 60 seconds. Right now, pictured here is the SEGA PRIZE Hayate no Gotoku 2nd Season Extra Figure Volume One - Hinagiku Katsura. H-I-N-A! Hinagiku! Hi! Hi!

President of Student Government!

H-I-N-A! Hinagiku! Hi! Hi!

Her pose looks attractive because Hinagiku Katsura is the most attractive of all the Hayate the Combat Butler girls due to her strong nature. Although I gonna say that she looks hot in that pose!

Gosh, I love her pose!

She even has a green armband on her uniform!

Despite I bought it on some Japan surplus store (either in person or online), it still looks like it was freshly picked! No wonder somebody's chasing the student body president's hot looks! To be fair, I don't do wolf whistles on these figures because this degrades them. That is my 100のヴィ学 about this figure. Please don't tell me what 100のヴィ学 (hyaku no vi gaku) means.

Chrysler 200

2011 Chrysler 200

The name "200" from Chrysler comes from the Chrysler 200C concept car that was once cancelled by Fiat CEO Sergio Marchionne because it was unfit for the company. Although Fiat cancels the production of the 200C hybrid, the name "200" lives on as the new Chrysler 200, a new medium sedan that replaces the awkward-looking Chrysler Sebring.

In contrast of being Chrysler's new model, the 200 is just a revision of the Sebring, henceforth that this is the Sebring's minor change model. The Chrysler 200 is the first to wear the new Chrysler logo and the new trademark grille that provides a sense of style. The side view of the 200 remains its Sebring look, meaning to say that this is a minor change, the 200 is actually a new model in general. In the rear view, the Chrysler 200 looks more like a Buick Regal, so in chemistry; the Chrysler 200 is like a mixture of the Kia K7/Cadenza, the outdated Sebring, and the Opel Insignia/Buick Regal. Wasn't that obvious to see how the Chrysler 200 looks like? On the interior, this is somewhat more of an updated version of the Chrysler Sebring, keeping this medium sedan updated to be more premium than being a blah-only medium sedan.

The only engine available for the Chrysler 200 as of press time is the 2.4-Liter I4 DOHC 16-Valve Dual VVT Engine that produces a power output of 175 PS. Depending on the variant, the 2.4L variant comes with either a 4-speed AT or a 6-speed AT. A 4-speed AT can be enough but for those looking for more fun-to-drive, a 6-speed AT is necessary. The new Pentastar 3.6L V6 engine that produces 287 PS may soon follow.

My thoughts about the 200:
Despite being branded as the minor change model of the Sebring, the new Chrysler 200 is the debutante in the new Chrysler brand, following with the new 300, the Town and Country/Grand Voyager minor change, It will also come to Europe under the Lancia badge. I strongly believe that the new Chrysler 200 will regain Chrysler's strength and most people would go for it. Word from it that there will be a 200 Convertible coming soon and serve as the replacement for the Sebring Convertible. The Chrysler 200 choses the Toyota Camry, Honda Accord Inspire and Accord Euro, Subaru Legacy B4, Volkswagen Passat, Kia K5/Optima, and the Hyundai YF Sonata as the main opponents.

Final Fight in Noah

I wish I have to swap vocal cords with Patrick Stewart (the actor in the X-Men movies and the voice of Zobek from Castlevania Lords of Shadow) just so I can tell you how will the final episode in ABS-CBN's fantasy drama, Noah, feels like:

And now the final battle is come. Ruth (Jodi Sta. Maria) is waiting for you, my friend. She knows what you have done. She knows everything. Ruth has hoped all this time that you would save the world and here you are on the brink of it. You stand upon a knife edge. She has kept faith in you despite everything, now you must fulfill your destiny and the truth will out. I will help you, old friend. I will be with you in this your moment of victory.

Anyway, this is how the Final Fight in Noah feels like:

As the world is now in chaos because of Judah (Joem Bascon), our heroes Gabriel (Piolo Pascual), Levi (Jolo Revilla), Jacob (Zaijan Aranilla), Nica (Xyriel Manabay), and the Ungtas are trying to save the world from Judah's chaos. As we remember from the Goddess of Earth, Gabriel's mission is to defeat Judah and save the world.

When Judah and his goons, with Ruth and Joshua, approaches to the escape plane, Gabriel approaches and the Final Fight has begun. As tensions rise, Jacob unexpectedly appeared and hit Judah with his slingshot and crossfires happened and the monster is killed. Gabriel tries to approach to his son but Judah killed Gabriel but luckily, Levi killed Judah. With the Elder Zatok retrieved the keys to the Last Paradise, Gabriel's family, along with the dying Gabriel approaches to the island of Noah. As they approached to the doors of the Last Paradise, the Ungtas finally closed the doors of the Last Paradise, saving the world.

Gabriel talked to the Goddess of Earth, Gaia, and the Goddess allowed Gabriel to reunite with his family. With that, Gabriel was miraculously alive, spreading joy to his family and the Ungtas.

After the world is saved, Gabriel and Ruth finally remarried and their lives are back to normal. This concludes the story of Noah and yes, we are going to miss the Ungtas.

An O.A. but O.K. Dodge Commercial

Check out this Dodge TV Commercial;

Based on what I observed on this ad, are we going to end up like this in case of unexpected snow? It's OK if the new third-generation Durango, Journey/JC Type II, and Second-generation (or Type-II?) Charger comes with ALL WHEEL DRIVE system. Without it, you're stuck forever in the urge of SNOWPOCALYPSE!

It's weird to see people panicking in case of snow but this is how it happens.

Kuya Jobert ties a neck tie

All right! Kuya Jobert's Damoobs is at it again on the February 4 episode of Banana Split Daily Servings! When a man (Badji Mortiz) approaches to Kuya Jobert and asks him that he can't tie a necktie. Kuya Jobert shows him how to tie a necktie. It's true that he can't tie a necktie if he didn't own one. He gave him his own "one-step" necktie! LOL

There's no way Kuya Jobert can't be that funny! :-)

Another thing funny is Magic Singh's Leaf Magic that turns it into "Pocket Money" wherein the leaf is now in the guy's wallet!

Loveplus meets HALLS

You may remember Nene Anegasaki, one of the three Loveplus gals and also the gal who made the headline where a Loveplus player, Sal9000, married this character.

She's part of the Loveplus-HALLS collaboration, promoting the new flavor of HALLS exclusively in Japan, the HALLS Pink Grapefruit flavor.

On that video, the development team talked to Nene what will their next HALLS flavor feels like. Nene said that this new HALLS flavor needs to be sweet and delicious. When they give her something, she tasted it and it was like wow!


In the eyes of a Konami fans, this is the HALLS flavor in Japan that made it "Nene Anegasaki's Personal Preference" for sure.

Never knew this made it a headline when this Japan-only new HALLS flavor was made to be Nene Anegasaki's personal preference, even if Nene has a liking over lozenges. Everyone loves lozenges because they are like candies to them.

This new, Japan-only, Halls flavor is already on sale since the end of January 2011. Those people in Japan looking for this flavor should find on their nearest groceries and convenient stores.

I heard that Nene Anegasaki may be featured on the wrapper this summer 2011.

The best of both worlds!

Camaro TV Commercials...

In time before Super Bowl XLV, General Motors' Chevrolet brand unveiled two commercials; one is that you can't mess with an Autobot Bumblebee, and the second that what if a female driver is in the Camaro.

See what I mean?

The ad from the top resembles more like a dealer ad, when a mascot smack the Camaro with a fake hammer, the Camaro turned into a Bumblebee (as we know it) and caused trouble. Never mess with Bumblebee, I mean, a Chevy!

The second has some commentary, it imagines what will the Camaro commercial will look like; driving on the desert, a woman drives a Camaro, on the city streets, evading the hays, car chases, and ended parking on the school. Now that's imagination!

Teens who left Shoutout...

I watched the Thursday episode of Shoutout Level Up, it was disappointing to me to see teens who were part of the Shoutout family let go by the staff because of their hectic schedules. Those who left Shoutout are:

Piero Vergara- part of the new fantaserye Mutya

Yen Santos- part of the new fantaserye Mutya

Joe - part of the new fantaserye Mutya

Jenny Kim - to continue her studies

Ryan Bang - he's a part of Banana Split and Matanglawin, currently as judge in Showtime, and host of Studio 23's 3OW POHWZ

Julia Montes - She's busy being the new Clara in the high-ranking drama, Mara Clara

John Manalo - He's a part of Mara Clara

Kathryn Bernardo - She's busy being the new Mara from Mara Clara

The title says it all, Ultimate Wheels is the title of the song used on the new Suzuki Solio starring none other than famous J-Pop Boy Group, KAT-TUN! Not only KAT-TUN fans are going to go gaga over KAT-TUN's latest single, this is targeted by car enthusiasts everywhere because this is the Suzuki new Solio's theme song!

The ULTIMATE WHEELS maxi single CD packs not just the ULTIMATE WHEELS song, which is the Suzuki new Solio's theme song, but also includes three songs saved for KAT-TUN fun such as TWO, MAKE-OR-BREAK, and 夜明けまで. If you're not into these three, I suggest the song ULTIMATE WHEELS is the best pick. My recommendation is to play this new KAT-TUN song on the new Suzuki Solio and let KAT-TUN sing your way while driving the new Suzuki Solio all over Japan! This is going to be one heck of a good time road trip with you, KAT-TUN, and the new Suzuki Solio! Enjoy!

Pimple? Let Alpha Beth help you!

Oh yes! Another Alpha Beth in the February 3 episode of Banana Split Daily Servings! When a guy wakes up in the morning and all of a sudden, he saw a pimple on his face! Ahh! Don't fret! Alpha Beth's here! The word is "PIMPLE" and replace P with D and presto! It's "DIMPLE"! His pimple's gone and now it's just a dimple!

Oh wait! The Banana Split magician, Magic Singh, is here again and he's showing the Coin Magic to the woman. Not only the coin disappeared but also the woman's hand! MAGIC!

A special web anime movie created in collaboration between Fuji Heavy Industries and GAINAX

Of all the automobile manufacturers created web specials that made car enthusiasts interested for more such as BMW Korea's BMW Meets Truth starring Rain, Lexus CT 200h's Dark Ride, Toyota Mark X Samurai Code drama starring Koichi Sato, True Power Should Be Shared starring the Aston Martin Rapide, Audi A1's The Next Big Thing starring Justin Timberlake, Kia Motors' The Lotze Identity starring Kim Joo-Hyuk, Nissan Note's Teinenpi Shoujo Heidi, and other web specials made possible by automobile manufacturers, it seems that Fuji Heavy Industries joined the bandwagon for a very special web special to keep fans of the Subaru brand alive and kicking by offering a short anime film titled Houkago no Pleiades (日本名:放課後のプレアデス)

Subaru and GAINAX presents Houkago no Pleiades

Created in collaboration between Fuji Heavy Industries Ltd. (behind the Subaru brand), and GAINAX, this special web movie made its debut in February 1 ,2011 and wow! This is the first time a famous Japanese carmaker team up with a famous Japanese anime studio for a surprise treat for Scooby fans all over Japan. I guess its true that Love is what makes a Subaru, a Subaru, especially this web special!

When I first peeked on this web special, it was like OH MY! This web special is a sweet as a full tank of 100-octane gasoline! As a web special created in partnership between Fuji Heavy Industries and GAINAX, there are some Subaru-related references on this 4-part short anime film;

1) The main character, Subaru (すばる) is from her namesake, the brand itself.

2) The opening of a door using a key is somewhat like you're turning the ignition key on

3) Hear the engine start-up on the magic staff? That's the sound of the boxer engine, the pinnacle of Subaru engineering.

4) The shafts Subaru, Aoi, Itsuki, Hikaru, and Nanako used were derived from Subaru models. Look closely at their shafts on this short film and it has something similar from the Subaru trademark grille.

Subaru's shaft was derived from the Fifth-generation Subaru Legacy
2010 Subaru Legacy Touring Wagon

Itsuki's shaft was based on the Forester
2011 Subaru Forester

Aoi's shaft was based on the third-generation Subaru Impreza
2011 Subaru Impreza 1.5i-S Limited (Special Edition)

Nanako's shaft was based on Subaru's Touring 7-seater, the Exiga
2009 Subaru Exiga

Hikaru's shaft was based on Subaru's latest compact, the Trezia
2011 Subaru Trezia

5) The areas marked on the bus stop were the names of areas Subaru manufacturing plants located, most notably, Ota, Gunma.

My impressions about this Subaru x GAINAX collaboration short film is tremendously superb. Two worlds combined to create something sweeter than a full tank of 100-octane petrol! Most Scooby fans wowed upon peeking at the web special, Houkago no Pleiades. This short anime film reprises the new Subaru slogan "Confidence in Motion" to a completely new level. I guess Houkago no Pleiades is the automotive web special that ends all automotive web specials since 2009's Nissan Note Teinenpi Shoujo Heidi and 2010's Toyota Mark X Samurai Code drama!

Thank you Fuji Heavy Industries and GAINAX for making this short anime film possible! I guess the words "Love is what makes a Subaru, a Subaru" came to reality! (Applause)

True Power Should Be Shared

Aston Martin Rapide '11

Aston Martin's first premium sedan, the Rapide, is quite possibly the best premium saloon built for those who are sensing lap of luxury. Because of the success, the Rapide starred on the special three-part web movie titled "True Power Should Be Shared" made possible by Aston Martin. Trust me, I saw it. It was quite a thriller for this Aston Martin Rapide web movie.

Best web special for the Aston Martin premium saloon, the Rapide. A soon-to-be-Bond-car without the famous James Bond himself performed how thrilling and fun-to-drive it is before you whisk your way back at the beginning! How's that? Impressed?

Juana Change takes satirical aim on PNoy's Porsche?

Looks like the "PNoy's Porsche" is somewhat a so-called HOT ISSUE but a political satirist named Juana Change (Mae Paner) pokes fun on PNoy's Porsche.

What a hilarious take on the President's upcoming sports car that caused a hot issue all over the Philippines.

Heh, looks like a Presidential Porsche got us spilled on that satire but I'm sure this satire pokes fun on this...HOT ISSUE.

Kuya Jobert's Damoobs in "Wolf Whistle"

Another Damoobs ni Kuya Jobert Austria on the February 2 episode on Banana Split; there was some guy (Bentong) is having a hard time doing the Wolf Whistle to the incoming woman. Then Kuya Jobert approaches and tells him that he's good at whistling. First of all, he's doing some funny parts on his face. LOL

No candle during brownout? Leave it to Alpha Beth!

Another Alpha Beth episode on the February 1 episode of Banana Split Daily Servings! When the couple forgot the candle during the brownout, this is the job for Alpha Beth, the superhero who has a letter to solve problems! The word is "HANDLE", then replace the letter H with the letter C and ta-da! It's a "CANDLE"!

Also, Kuya Art, the Art Throb shows us how to make the Statue of Liberty with the use of clay and water. Heh, guess the Art Throb's messing the clay until it becomes the Statue of Liberty!

I almost forgot! Up to the day to celebrate Chinese New Year 2011, the Nuno sa Feng Shui gave us tips from Monday to Friday on the Banana Split spoof of TV Patrol, called Ang TV (doo wa diddy di di dum di di doo) Patrol!

Kuya Jobert takes on Soccer

In the Isports Lang segment in the January 31 episode of Banana Split Daily Servings, an athlete (John Prats) approaches to Kuya Jobert, telling him that Kuya Jobert's playing soccer. Kuya Jobert's using the AZKALS reference, showing to this athlete that he's good at soccer. Oh, well, that's Kuya Jobert's trademark...

Kuya Jobert shows a cleverly funny way to kick the soccer ball. After kicking the ball with his style, Kuya Jobert's buttocks was hit. OUCH! Later, the athlete is going to kick the ball with that style Kuya Jobert used. In the end, Kuya Jobert got hit by a soccer ball! ROFL

Dance with Hybrid

2012 Lexus CT 200h

Is it official? Is it official that the darker side of green, the Lexus CT 200h, is coming to the Philippines? According to Toyota Motor Philippines and Lexus Manila, its coming this late February!


That was quick. When the CT 200h debuted on January 12, 2011, I didn't know that LExus Manila finally got the memo and ready to bring the Lexus CT 200h to the Philippines just before the Philippine summer 2011! This is the cheapest Lexus we can try and yes, we are ready to dance with this hybrid!

Shall we Dance with Hybrid?

Is Mutya the next-generation Marina?

Back in 2004, ABS-CBN created a new genre in the history of Philippine television called "Fantaserye" that fills fantasy on the drama. Their first Fantaserye was Marina, which stars Claudine Baretto as Marina, a young girl who was cursed as a mermaid. Everyone knows this famous fantaserye, right?

The newest discovery of ABS-CBN, Mutya Orquia, will play as the titular character Mutya, a little girl who was born with a strange condition that looks like a mermaid. Mutya is the daughter of Cordella (played by Precious Lara Quigaman) who falls in love with a merman named Irvin (Alfred Vargas).

Separated by fear, and now in the hands of Mutya's new adoptive parents, will the young girl tries to fit in her normal life if she looks like a mermaid?

When I first peeked at the teaser, I thought that Mutya looks a lot like Xyriel Anne Manabay, but no. She's not Xyriel! She's Mutya! Kudos to ABS-CBN for their newest discovery but is Mutya the next-generation Marina?

Based on the work from the late Pablo S. Gomez (who is also behind the currently airing comedy-drama, Juanita Banana), directed by Erick Salud and Jojo Saguin, and starring Precious Lara Quigaman, Alfred Vargas, Malou Crisologo, Sandy Andolong, Tess Antonio, Gary Lim, Pen Medina, Ogie Diaz, Nina Jose, Ahron Villena, Jairus Aquino, and introducing Mutya Orquia as Mutya herself!

Scheduled to be on air this January 31 after Noah!

Volkswagen Jetta VI

In North America, it is common that you are seeing a bunch of Volkswagen Jetta cars roaming around the American road, especially the Motor City, Detroit, Michigan. Although the Volkswagen Jetta is the German's take on the Toyota Corolla and the Honda Civic, the pricing for the Jetta is set at its competitive peak, calling it the entry-level Volkswagen for all, always staying up to its "Das Auto" slogan. In Summer 2010, the sixth-generation Volkswagen Jetta made its world premiere at Times Square, New York, and began sales on that quarter. With its North American success, Volkswagen decided to bring the Jetta on its homeland, Germany, and commercialization starts this 1st quarter 2011.

2012 Volkswagen Jetta

2012 Volkswagen Jetta interior

Although the codename is NCS (New Compact Sedan), the sixth-generation Jetta made this entry-level V-Dub sedan even more feistier and no longer shares the Golf platform, no longer called "the Golf with the trunk" anymore. In Europe, the sixth-generation Jetta is offered in an entry-level 1.2-litre TSi engine, a 1.6-litre TDi engine, and a high-performance 2.0-litre TDi engine. The 1.2-litre TSi engine is a turbocharged engine capable of releasing a power output of just 105 PS and consumes for about 5.7 litres/100km, while the 1.6L TDi engine consumes for about 4.5 litres/100km with the same power output as the 1.2-litre TSi engine, making it an effective European eco-car for the masses. Lastly, the top-of-the-line 2.0 TDI DPF has a greater power output of 140 PS and consumes for about 4.8 litres/100km. Volkswagen plans to add more engine ranges for the new Jetta in the future.

Entry-level quality at its best, and that is why the Jetta evolved into even more than what you expect from other entry-level cars. Although the exterior looks more like an enlarged version of the Russian-made Polo Saloon, the new Jetta looks more stylish and stays true to its entry-level roots. With its improved tastes, I admit that the new Jetta makes it a worthy opponent from the world of entry-level compact sedans. The Hyundai Accent RB seems to be waiting for the new Jetta to make a move.

With that, I just really hope that Volkswagen will return to the Philippines soon, however, we do not like what will the price of this new Jetta is because it will end up being 10% more expensive than the Toyota Belta.
