A new era, a new domain

So, after months of being on WordPress, I’ve taken up Randall Fitzgerald’s offer of free hosting on ikimashou.net. What does this mean for you, the reader? Well, the original WordPress blog will stay where it is, and I’ll still reply to any comments that appear on there, but from now on all new content will be posted on http://azureflame.ikimashou.net, so please update all links and bookmarks. As I’m sure you’ll notice, the sidebar on the new blog isn’t ready yet, but I’ll be tinkering with it soon, and for now the Episode Guides section is down since WordPress imported what were meant to be sub-pages as posts. So just be patient, and everything will be back to normal soon, with a new theme, new banner and the long-awaited poll function, among other things.

In case anyone is wondering, my non-anime blog, the creatively entitled Azure Flame B-Side, will be continuing on WordPress as normal.

The Obligatory Merry Christmas Post

Ages ago, I had this great idea of reviewing various Christmas related episodes for today (think the Love Hina Xmas Special et al), but when it came down to it, not only did I have no time left, but I couldn’t remember most of those episodes particularly well. So instead, you will have to enjoy this festive low-content Christmas collection of seasonal anime screencaps. Click on the ‘more’ link and let the pointlessness begin!

Shameless Self-Indulgence: Another Year Older

I can’t say I’d normally be excited enough about my birthday to make a blog post about it, but I wanted to show off this lovely picture that my loyal slave necromancer made for me, featuring the ‘royal wedding’ between President Aria and Mikoto.

Oh, and if anyone feels like buying me a present, how about some WordPress credits so I can upgrade my image storage limit? I’ve used 48 out of 50MB so far, so the need is pressing (yes, I know I can just resort to imageshack, but it’s not the same, damn it!)

Service Announcement: Dropping Ginga Nagareboshi Gin

Yes, I know I’ve been promising more posts on Ginga Nagareboshi Gin for a while, but ASD have just retranslated episode 1 with better subtitles, which I feel will reduce what little hilarity I was able to squeeze from the series. In short, I wasn’t able to see a good way to parody the series, and I don’t have the energy to write about it in any other capacity, so I’m afraid it has to go.

Shameless self-promotion: Galaxycats

Yes, it’s time for an off-topic post- this time to draw attention to a new series of pages on the sidebar entitled “Galaxycats”. At this point, you may be thinking “what the hell is that”, and indeed, it isn’t related to anime and manga, but rather an original sci-fi story I’ve been working on for a while. I won’t be referring to it in the main blog again, but I’ll be adding episodes on a semi-regular basis, and there’ll always be a link to them from here for anyone who’s interested.

Connection Problems

Unfortunately, no sooner do I get a blog than my router decides to behave erratically, preventing me from getting online with my usual computer. It could just be the heat, or it could be time for a new router, either way it means posting will be a lot more sporadic for the next few days.

Entering the blogworld

Yes, the unthinkable has happened, the apocalypse may even be nigh; no, Harukanaru Toki no Naka De hasn’t been fully subbed in English, nor has Bushilord finally arrived, but against all odds, I have finally created a blog. For the moment I’ll be using it to post anime-related rants and parodies, along with instalments of an original story I’m working on, and if I can be bothered, progress reports on my attempt to create a game with RPG Maker XP. Forgive me for the simplicity of the blogroll and about sections; since I am still at ‘wood’ blogger level, it will take some time for me to gain EXP and make them 1337, or at least acceptable. Anyway, thus ends the dull but obligatory introductory post, the more interesting stuff will appear shortly.
