News & Updates Updates for August 2005

Lune Venus (El Hazard)
Wednesday, August 31, 2005

Posted the character profiles of Sebastian (from Ultra Maniac); Akemi and Fuyumi (from SHE, The Ultimate Weapon); Maromi (from Paranoia Agent). I noticed the image gallery on my review of Saturday Morning with Sid & Marty Krofft disappeared, so I fixed that. I decided to make the extra navigation bar pop up when the mouse is also held over the Anime Profiles link, which should make it easier to hit the left-most pop-up links. I noticed a lot of times I would accidentally let my mouse cursor get too far off the navigation area thus causing the pop-up navigation bar to disappear before I got to the link I was aiming for.

Posted the character profile of Mecha Washu (from Tenchi Universe). Decided to put Google Link Units in the announcements bar. The announcements will still show up when Google has nothing to put there, and I can always override the Google Link Units for important announcements. Hopefully these will help to increase the revenue so I can save up and get this site running a bit faster.

Friday, August 19, 2005

Posted the character profiles of Tennyo Masaki and Misao Kuramitsu (from Tenchi Muyo! Ryo-Ohki) and Neju Na Melmas (from Tenchi Muyo! GXP: Galaxy Police Transporter). TokyoPop sent along two new manga titles, War on Flesh and I Luv Halloween, as well as a magazine called Takuhai which provides several manga previews. And by previews, I really mean previews, several pages of each manga are shown in addition to little notes about them and overall descriptions. Best of all, everyone can get a free subscription. TokyoPop also has also launched Takuhai Online to complement it, which is a pretty nice site. Oh, and you know what else was included in the package? Cheddar Cheese Larvets. Yeah, real snackable meal worms! The weird part is, they actually look kinda good....

Wednesday, August 17, 2005

Posted the anime profile of My Neighbors the Yamadas (screenshots coming soon).

Tuesday, August 16, 2005

Posted the character profiles of Airi Magma Masaki and Kagato (from Tenchi Muyo! Ryo-Ohki). Split the different Tenchi universes into separate directories. So far most of the character profiles are still linked to the Tenchi Muyo! Ryo-Ohki series. Only those characters that happen to be specific to a particular universe have been moved to the new directories.

Sunday, August 14, 2005

Posted the anime profile of Hardcore Hosptial.

Saturday, August 13, 2005

Posted my review of Saturday Morning with Sid & Marty Krofft. Added a couple things to the forum that I've been wanting to add for quite a while. The first thing you've probably already noticed if ever visit the forums at all, and that's the new rectangular page number bar. They second thing I added was an option on the user profile control panel that allows users to select how they want the topics to be ordered by default. Previously they were always ordered with the newer topics on top, so now you can choose to have the topics with the most recent activity be on top.

Thursday, August 11, 2005

Posted my review of the Weather Woman DVD Collection, my review of Ryan: The Special Edition DVD, and my review of the Pioneer DV-F727 300+1 Multi-Disc DVD Changer. Posted character profiles of Magical Girl Pretty Sammy and Bif Standard (from Magical Girl Pretty Sammy).

Posted anime profiles of Psycho Diver: Soul Siren, 801 T.T.S. Airbats, Elfen Lied, Black Jack: A Surgeon with the Hands of God, Gunslinger Girl, Tenjho Tenge, Cleopatra D.C.. Posted character profiles of Poemi Watanabe (from Puni Puni Poemy); Hitomi, Nike (from Appleseed, 2004 remake); Diana (from Fencer of Minerva); Z (from Tenchi Muyo! Ryo-Ohki); Maya Natsume (Tenjho Tenge); Dark Riho (NightWalker); Mituski (from Tenchi Universe). I moved the anime profile of Magical Girl Pretty Sammy to its own folder. It's the first step in trying to filter the various Tenchi universes into seperate directories. I'm leaving the existing character profile links in the file until I get new profile submissions specific to the Magical Girl Pretty Sammy series.

Friday, August 5, 2005

Posted character profiles of Goei Sonsaku, Shuyu Koukin, and Shimei Ryoumou (from Ikki Tousen); Mikura Suzuki (from Mezzo: Danger Service Agency); Maiko Yanagihara (from Vampire Princess Miyu).

Tuesday, August 2, 2005

Posted my review of Earth 2 - The Complete Series. Posted the character profiles of Fuu (from Samurai Champloo); Kiyo Takamine, Parco Folgore, Kolulu, Tia, Brago, Zeon (from Zatch Bell). I wasn't too happy with the alternate color for links that open in new windows, so I switched them back to the same color, and just underlined them by default.

Monday, August 1, 2005

Changed the color of links that open in new windows, so that you can tell beforehand without needing to move the mouse pointer over the link in order to see whether or not it has a dotted underline. Hm, so I guess I really don't need that dotted underline indicator anymore.
