Important note: new site!

26 01 2009

The new site is finally up at www.yokazeblog.com and I will eventually stop visiting this site altogether; however, I will write no more posts here. This will be the last post here and the only one this and the new site doesn’t have in common. The new theme I’m using is called “arthemia” and is a blog and magazine hybrid template thingy, and I hope that you like it! It’s a little dull as it is right now, but I will customize it in time. Please click here to register an account for the new site! You don’t have to register to comment, but to do anything else (as well as comment, really) I wish you would.

Thanks for everything! :D

EDIT: I’ve moved everything from this blog, such as comments and more, to the new one, but pageviews have been cleared, but I hope that with your help it won’t matter in a month or two. ^^





YouTube Finds #01: Epona no Uta

24 01 2009

YouTube means YouTube, and #01 means number one – that means a new series of… something? I thought I’d make a little series of blog posts where I post interesting videos I find at YouTube and share them with you guys! So, here’s the first entry: Epona’s Song with lyrics! :O

Epona, Epona~

I think I’m gonna call this little series “YouTube Finds.” Fantasyless and awesome, don’t you think? I promise, I’ll try not to spam this new category!





Suzumiya Haruhi-chan is back!

24 01 2009

The day before Valentine’s Day, Haruhi-chan finally returns – to YouTube! About 22:00 JST (that’s 10 PM in Japanese Standard Time) the channel KADOKAWAanime at YouTube on the 13th February will release the first episode of the new The Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya parody online anime, Suzumiya Haruhi-chan no Yuuutsu (simply add “-chan” to The Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya and you get The Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya-chan, or Suzumiya Haruhi-chan no Yuuutsu instead of Suzumiya Haruhi no Yuuutsu… wow, that was long). If you’ve been waiting for more Haruhi Suzumiya, this Valentine will be the best in years! Maybe…

Official website for Hana-sakeru Seishounen is up

14 01 2009

The coming NHK anime Hana-sakeru Seishounen (yes, I know the site spells it “Hanasakeru Seishonen,” but I’ve written this way before on this blog and will continue doing so forever) will go up on TV in Japan during April, but already the official website is up so check it out. This is just a short notice, seeing as I’m not really interested in this series myself and have got absolutely nothing more to say about it. See you later!

Japanese YouTube with subtitles? Kadokawa tests new kadoTV

14 01 2009

Kadokawa launches their new kadoTV service in a test stage where they will stream content previously uploaded to their channel at YouTube with subtitles underneath in several languages – even Japanese. Great for those studying both kana, kanji and the language altogether, am I right? Users of the kadoTV service will be able to download and edit subtitles for free; however, I’m not sure if you will be able to upload the altered or completely new subtitles to the site or if you’re legally even allowed to use it for anything after downloading it. The test stage, or maybe “trial version” would fit better, will be available to the public until the end of February. You can also change the language of menus and not much else by clicking “English” accompanied by the american flag to the right of the kadoTV logo at the top of the page, I see now.

11 01 2009

The newest two additions to Crunchyroll’s library of Anime Membership-only simulcasts (the episodes will be available to non-paying users as well, but not as quick “simulcasts”) are Web Ghost PiPoPa, or Net Ghost PiPoPa, about Yuuta Akigawa and Pit, Pot, and Pat, and Skip Beat! about a teenage girl named Kyoko Mogami, and then I don’t know any more… Anyway, join several other members at Crunchyroll and check these shows out, as well as the tons of other programs on the program lineup.
