Updates for March and April
Updates for May and June
Updates for July, August and September
Updates for October, November and December
It's the beginning of the new millenium now, but it doesn't seem any different from the last. >_< Added pictures to Raiha, Uruha Magic, Uruha Illusion, Referees and Ganko's profiles, as well as to the "Others" page.
Yes, I know I haven't been updating very much lately, and nor have my updates been very... well, TRUE updates, in the sense that I've only done a few little things here and there. At first I was thinking of letting this page stay stagnant for a while, since I never realized that school this year could be so hectic. I didn't really think people would care, anyway, since there's been a lot of much better FoR pages popping up lately that they could go check out for their FoR needs. But I recently just checked my guestbook, and read one of the most encouraging entries I've ever received. (In case you're wondering, it's the private entry, so you can't read it. Ha. :p) I know I've gotten a lot of earlier entries which were also very lovely, (thank you, minna. ^_^) but it was this particular one which really motivated me to start working on my page more. So I'll just like to thank that person who wrote it (You know who you are. ^_^) for encouraging me to continue working on my page and preventing me from losing interest in it. It helps to know that there are people out there who appreciate what I do. Arigatou Gozaimasu. :)
Ok, so I can't guarantee I'll be able to finish what I've planned in the next few updates (It'll probably take eons for a lazy person like me. >_<), but I just want to tell you that I'm going to do a major overhaul of the character profiles. I've already gone through a few, but I'm betting a lot more are quite out-of-date. AND I'm going to add more profiles (Mostly Second Season ones)... would you believe I have a total of 30 more to do? But don't freak just yet... most of them won't be very descriptive since certain characters are very minor. Plus, I've also been thinking about creating Second Season profiles for those who already have First Season profiles since it really irks me to have to put "Highlight to read" everywhere. Not sure If I'll do that, though. Battle Skills profiles will have to be put up as well. Oh, and I WILL be putting up a new layout one of these days, but what with my limited artistic abilities and all, it just might take forever...
You know what? I've just realized I've been rambling on so much that i forgot to list what I've updated today. *sheepish grin*
Um, let's see... (Nothing major, mostly minor) moved the October, November and December updates to their own page (Let the New year's entries have their own page, you know? ^_~), added the names of the Second Season characters (It was HELL trying to arrange them in groups which make sense since certain characters belong to two organizations, or make appearances in both arcs etc.), edited Recca's battle skills profile slightly (I'm rewatching AXN and since it's now subtitled it's much easier to catch the names of the attacks etc. So watch out for more edits in that section) and completely rewrote Raiha's profile. I personally think it's better than the old one which wasn't very informative, but I don't think it's very good either. Oh well. >_< Lastly, I'm almost done with a new ramble on AXN's subtitled anime (Haven't done one for a looooooong time) and will be putting it up very soon.
So that's about it. Despite the huge amount of words here, today's update is pitifully small. The irony.
Not an update, just a note to say that I'm working on a new layout now. And I'll probably be updating sometime this weekend, since there's no school tomorrow...
Ok, so I lied about updating last weekend. Although it's partially due to my laziness, I've also got a zillion tests coming up this week (I think there's a total of about 8 tests altogether), so I haven't been able to do very much. Gomen.
Um, let's see... on 8th Feb I put up the new layout, only for some reason my update I typed out here got erased. Never mind, it wasn't really important anyway. I actually prefer the Kurenai one, though. Oh well.
I also gave the Fanfic page a "makeover"; it's much neater now with tables. Like I said earlier, I'm a table freak. ^_^ 3 new fanfics by Washu are also up... go check them out. Plus I edited the manga page a little.
Hopefully I'll have something more productive on my next update. I KNOW I have to update the Raiha fanclub... I haven't done that for ages. Gomen to all you people out there waiting to be added. *sweatdrop*. And I'm not going to give anymore promises... I seem to keep breaking them. *double sweatdrop*
I haven't been able to go online for a while because my dear brother was fiddling with the computer and agfter that it didn't work. >_< Well, I guess I can't really blame him... he didn't MEAN to make the internet connection go bonkers.
Anyway, I was flipping through volume 27 of the manga in Kinokuniya one day, (It wasn't me who unwrapped it, honest! ^_^) and here's the gist of what I managed understand. (It's in Japanese and I can't read Japanese, plus the fact that I was just flipping through it really quickly) I think most people will like this volume after all the so-called boring ones. (Actually, I kind of liked volumes 24-26, which everyone says are so boring) It has Raiha, Saicho, Kurei and this person whom I think is Joker but am not too sure. BTW, the scenes listed here aren't in any particular order, since I was looking at it quite a few days ago. They might not be too accurate either, since, like I said earlier, I can't read Japanese.
1) Mikagami fights in this one. I can't remember who he fights, but I know alot of people will be happy that he finally gets to do something. ^_^
2) Saicho's fighting with Tsukishiro and Kashamaru (I think) against the lion-man killer guy from the Shisiten (sorry, I can't remember his name) when he finds out that the members of Warrior Team Kuu have been killed by him. (The Shisiten, not Saicho!) He's shocked and unable to fight for a moment. This is when Kurei appears. It appears he used the bodies of the dead Kuu members to make more flames. These he uses to attack the lion guy. He's accompanied by another guy with a baseball cap covering his eyes. I'm not sure if it IS Joker, since his hair is loose and it's white, not black like when its tied into braids. However, his eyes ARE covered up, so... The two of them leave, to where I do not know. (Either that or I can't remember. ^_^)
3) Recca manages to defeat Mokuren. The building they're in is about to collapse and he escapes with Kuukai. Mikoto, who hasn't died yet, crawls over to Mokuren and says something to him, probably something about wanting to die together with him. Mokuren seems to have realized his mistake (Okay, so maybe killing his lover isn't exactly a "mistake"...) and is very upset. If I'm not wrong, he regrets killing Mikoto. (But with Mokuren, no one can tell. >_<) The two of them sit together on the floor as the building begins to crumble around them and Mokuren screams something about Recca. (If he's blaming Recca for his current situation, he is one big fat IDIOT. [Not that he isn't already anyway])
4) Raiha actually uses his Raijin. It's a rather creepy looking bug-like thing which he also wears on his hand like the Fuujin. He uses it to save Fuuko from a couple of robots, I think. (Remember she fell down the bridge when Kirito snapped it? She seems to have fainted after that.) Afterwards, he leaves, though I think he says something to the sleeping Fuuko before he leaves. (There was something written which seemed like a "Fuuko-san" or something to me)
That's about it. I really can't wait to get the Chinese version of volume 27... I'm sure it's going to much better once I can understand what's happening. ^_^
Okay, so on to the updates. I've been working on Miki and Aki's pages... they've got their own layout, plus I edited their battle skills pages. Click on their link on Neon's shrine (entitled "Shimai") to access their page.
I've got some other stuff I'll be putting up on the next update, since they're not done yet. (I've been working on scanning images etc.) Hopefully the next update will be SOON...
This is just here to tell you people that I'm NOT dead. (Not yet, anyway. ^_^) I know I haven't updated in ages - I have only my laziness to blame. It's also been hectic with all the competitions, but I STILL should've updated at least once. *shakes head*.
Anyway, there's no update today - I'll do it tomorrow, as I still have some stuff to finish up. I'll definitely have something to put up on my next update, but I'm not sure if it'll really be tomorrow. I'll try my best, though. I really need to go reply to my mails and update the Raiha fanclub...
By the way, just for interest's sake - Did you know yesterday was both Good Friday AND Friday the 13th? Cool, eh? :)
A day late in updating, I see. Never mind. I've got to type this really fast since I'm running out of time. So here's the good news. Today I updated something which has been in the works for quite a while - illustrated manga translations of Fuuko's childhood. Go over to the Manga section to find it -I'm going to make a new section for it on the next update, but for now it's staying there. I was actually going to link the 'thumbnails' so that you could click on them to get bigger pictures, but like I said, no time.
Now for the bad news: I haven't done anything else yet. *sweatdrop* I know the Raiha fanclub's longe overdue for an update, but I haven't had the time to do it yet. I'm really sorry. If your name hasn't appeared yet, please don't submit again, since I still have them in my mailbox. Double submissions give me a headache, especially since a LOT of people who submit their names again a while after their first submission forget to e-mail me to tell me to help them erase their old names. And I can't stand it when people click the button multiple times, since it clogs up my already full mailbox. PLEASE take the time to e-mail me if you need to erase your old submission - I bet about an eighth of the names on the list are repeats.
And here's the worse news: I won't be able to update for a while. At least until May 11th, since that's the last day of exams. I really need to get off my butt and start studying if I hope to pass my exams well for this half of the year. Don't worry, though, I REALLY promise that I'll do a lot of updating after the exams. I'll have a long time of rest after the exams, so I'll be able to finish up a lot of stuff. Until then, I hope you'll be patient enough to wait for me to come back. To quote Miki, "Ciao!" ^_^
How ironic. I DON'T update when I promise to update, and I DO update when I say I won't be updating. -_-
Actually, I really shouldn't be doing this, but I'm just so BORED. I HATE studying. >_<
Yeah, so anyway, I've got about 9 more 'freetalks' translated. Check out on Anzai-sensei's page in the manga section. If anyone can help me to edit them so they sound better, by all means, e-mail me. I KNOW they sound terrible. *sigh*
And off we go a-studying... *sighs even louder*
Actually I wasn't going to update, until I realized I had this page done for wuite a while but had never put it up... Basically, what I did was just edit the characters page so that you don't go clicking around my very-dark-backgrounds site and come across a glaringly white one. The white one was so ugly I just HAD to update. (*mumblemumbleyeahyeah,excusesexcusesmumblemumble*)
Gotta scoot. Seeya. (I REALLY shouldn't touch the computer anymore. >_<)
Sorry for not updating earlier.First I went on a school trip for five days, and then when I came back the Internet connection wasn't working so I couldn't upload my files. Phooey. >_< I guess it's a good thing it wasn't working, though, since I managed to spruce up the pages a bit... much more than lazy old me would have if it hadn't been available. ^_^
Well, this time round we have a layout featuring Recca. What would FoR be without everyone's favourite ninja? The oh so obviously answer would be zilch, since this series IS named after him, you know. *grin*
Anyway, this layout's supposed to be the polar opposite of the Kurei one, just like how their personalities are so totally different. Kurei's colour scheme was a dark red while Recca's is, well, orange. (Something I'm sure a lot of people would dearly love to kill me for, but I couldn't use any other colour scheme. Really! ^_^) AND Kurei's picture was on the left while Recca's is on the right. of course, it COULD do with the fact that the pictures I had just happened to be like that. ^_^ (By the way, this picture was ALSO screencapped, pasted together and painstakingly edited by me. Take it and die. Have a nice day.) I don't really think this layout's anything to crow about... my favourite is STILL the Kurenai one, since that picture was so beautiful. Much better than Anzai-sensei's current "semi-chibified" ones now anyway. >_< And yes, I KNOW the title sucks, but I've never been any good at titling things.
Okay, enough about the layout. Today's updates consists of a couple of spruced up pages, like i said. Go to the Character Profiles page to check them out. I've got a huge project for this page coming up, and I've been working on it, so there's not much for this update. A little of this project will most probably be put up the next update, AND I have been working on Second Season Character Profiles as well as screencapping lots of pictures for use on this site. It's the June holidays now, so I've got a lot of updating to do. ^_^
Well, turns out I couldn't really work on my page during the June holidays. Not only that, I've been feeling relatively uninspired to continue updating this page lately. Not to worry, though, I WILL be updating, just not so regularly. And I don't think I'll be writing up any Second Season Character profiles until I'm ABSOLUTELY sure that that character will NEVER show up again, since I don't want to have keep adding new stuff every time a new volume comes out. Needless to say, you won't be seeing very many profiles any time soon. >_<
Anyway, I neatened up the fanfiction page today (I'm a tables freak), and added some new fanfiction by Yoyo Yuyu. That's about it - I'm still working on my project - Like I said, I've not felt very motivated lately so I stopped working on it for a while. Oh yes, and I updated the links page slightly. It'll be altered even more tomorrow.
Updated the links page, and added two links. Gotta scoot.
FINALLY updated the created psychic devices page. And yep, it's tables. What else were you expecting from a table freak like me? ^_^ Also added some image usage rules to the Uruha Oto image gallery - sorry if you think I'm being too strict, what with all the rules and everything, but I'm paranoid. *shrugs* Will be working on the Raiha fanclub members list soon. It's going to be haaaaaard work. Especially since I haven't updated it since what, february? 0_0 And I decided not to go on my statement that I'd delete the entries submitted after I made the announcement not to... but this will be the only exception. *stern* I'm actually getting quite annoyed with some of the people who submit to the Raiha fanclub... it seems they only want to do so so as to just get their names on someone else's page. Well, dearies, it's not going to happen. What's the use of declaring yourself a fan of Raiha if you don't even know who he is? (Yes, I've actually gotten submissions like that) I'll just delete those. I think I need to put up even MORE rules for the fanclub then... *sighs* What am I coming to? Rules at every turn. Ah well. It's not MY fault that SOME people just refuse to listen. *glares*
Shut down the Raiha fanclub. Go there to see the details. I've already said everything I wanted to about future updates on the front page, so there's not much else to put here. See you in late October! ^_~
Moved the Fuuko Shrine link from the static links page to the normal links page by request of Fuuko no Miko. I really should be studying... *eyes the huge pile of books laying on the table nearby* Yuk. >_<
Nearly got a heartattack when I clicked on the wrong file to edit and thought that my last update was on 8/2/2001. >_<
Anyway, sorry to disappoint those of you who were waiting for me the lazy bum to actually DO something, but this isn't an actual update. (I probably haven't had a real update in ages. >_<) BUT, I really am working on the updates now. I'm serious. I've actually *gasp* managed to finish up some of the battle skills pages! *Pigs start flying overhead*
Anyway, here's a list of updates that I need to and will be doing over the next two months... I'm hoping to actually finish it by next year, but seeing how busy I'll be during the holidays and next year, don't bet on anything. >_< I'll be updating this updates list (That sounds weird, no? Update the updates list? *snerk*) everytime I complete a section of this website. So that way at least I'll feel more encouraged to update properly since it'll be great to see that entire list of updates with every section labeled "Current Status: Finished". ^_^
Oh, and a last note to those people who e-mailed me but never got replies back: I'm so sorry, but I had no time to reply, so I pushed them aside all the way back until it was too late to reply to them. (Like, a few months late. 0_o) So for those who still want replies (I doubt it, though. >_<), could you please be angels and e-mail me back again? I would love to reply to you now that I have the time. ^_^ Oh, and also, to those people who sent me fanfiction but I never put them up (Gomen! ^_^;;;;;;;;;), I'll be e-mailing you soon to ask whether you still want me to post up your fanfic (I understand if you didn't, since it was very irresponsible of me to not put them up earlier. >_<). So if you see this message before I do so, please be an extra super-duper angelic angel and e-mail me straight away. I'd appreciate it. Thanks! ^_^
Yup, it's me... the great big fat liar who never updates even after she promises to do so. ^_^;;;;; Gomen, minna, I really AM going to try updating regularly from now on. (Although the updates won't be very large since I've got major exams this year) I've altered the Updates List, so that now I've got a target for every weekend that I will try my best to accomplish. (And I had jolly well better, especially since I'm not going make the targets very demanding. *wags finger at procrastinating self*) It'll start from next week onwards, so if you see me start to slack after a while, you know what to to - e-mail me and bug me incessantly until I get things done. ^_~
