Thank you to everyone who visited my blog over the last two years πŸ™‚ I feel compelled to mention some of the people who commented frequently: Serafer, FFVIIKnight, Lostty, Kanzeon, Sakura, Amayalee, Hoshi, Rantsdelnicoleta, The P-Meister, Diego, Syun ζ°ΈεΊ·, Blissmo, Stephen, Klaraflame, TelepathycPebble, and Greypowered. I appreciate the time you took to visit and comment πŸ™‚ I am always interested in opinions of people and try to reply to all comments, so don’t hesitate to write a line or two πŸ˜‰ Also I thank Akismet for saving me from 15 000 cans of spam πŸ˜›

Stats

Getting some progress on that weekly graph.

That spike needs some explanation. Guild Wars has one of the most beautifully rendered characters and armor among MMORPGs. Naturally, new armor generates considerable interest in the community (over 11 000 views in one day) πŸ˜›

Past


Fallen Angel. My mesmer at the Realm of Torment with wings turned black with a mod I created.

Last month this blog turned two years, let’s briefly look at its history and future directions. I started this blog primarily to show some of the landscape pictures I took in Guild Wars, my first and last MMORPG. I enjoyed playing it because I met many different people from around the word and found a couple of good friends. As time went by, I gradually recovered from an MMORPG addiction and went back to my other interest: Japanese culture and anime.

Present


Reincarnation. My mesmer with “purified” wings.

I watch very few anime and prefer the ones that have a distinctive visual quality (no, that does not mean fanservice πŸ˜› ). Instead of writing a summary or detailed rhetorical analysis, usually, I post episodic photoessays with plenty of pictures that I liked or that help depict a part of the story with some brief comments about the episode. I enjoy good stories, but proper analysis of a work requires significant time and effort (still writing that Paprika review πŸ˜› ), that is why I limit myself to visual elements.

Future

Ranka in Space. Yes, this does not make much sense at first glance πŸ˜› Read the explanation if you want to know more.

I’ll continue coverage of events in Japan and anime, but I’ll try to expand to other areas as well. My future posts will cover interesting science or technology news and helpful programs such as Mnemosyne. Hopefully, these post will be useful for any curious person πŸ™‚

Again, thank you everyone for visiting πŸ™‚

  1. Yay for you! Congradulations! 100G such a huge number!! I don’t think I can count to 100K in English let alone any other language. =P
    Again Congrats! Great writing for many years to come! ^_^

  2. Congratulations on your milestone. At first, I’ve been a lurker here because I’m too shy to comment but now I’m glad we became friends ^_^ More power!!!

  3. Aww ((HUGS)).

    Thanks for mentioning me even though I’m a more recent poster ^-^.

    I’ve been having fun posting and I really like your blogging style.

    I agree it does take a lot of time for significant analysis.

    My Macross posts have gotten longer and longer πŸ˜€

    Ooh interesting science I love hearing about new and exciting things in that field so I look forward to the future.

    Congrats on 2 years of great blogging ^-^

  4. You’re welcome~ ;]
    oooo, Mnemosyne is good. Although a bit rushed, I think, but I’m curious what you’d have to say about it – go for it!!

  5. Rantsdelnicoleta, thank you πŸ™‚ It does not matter whether you’ll finish counting to 100K or not. What matters is the experience you’ll gain in the process πŸ™‚

    FFVIKnight, oh yeah, your pictures in that Otakon post are great πŸ™‚

    Diego, I never tasted that snack actually πŸ˜› Thank you πŸ™‚

    Kanzeon, thank you πŸ™‚ Don’t be shy, please comment when you feel like it πŸ™‚

    Sakura, *hugs* Thank you πŸ™‚ I’ll pay closer attention to your posts πŸ™‚

    Klaraflame, thanks, I will! πŸ™‚

    Hoshi, Mnemosyne does not have many advanced functions like some other software, but it is sufficient for many purposes. I don’t have that much more to say about Mnemosyne particularly (perhaps, a character conversion tutorial if they have not fixed it yet), but I am going to post about other programs that make life easier in some way πŸ™‚

  6. Omedeto! ( I think I spelled that wrong!) You are such a lucky duck! I can’t wait till I get 100,000 views..if I ever do! Lol

  7. I like the Hax comment! LOL. Congratulations! I think I’m speaking for most of the people commenting here but we hope to have a spike in the near future.
