Hey what’s goin’ on, y’all? In a decision that I’ve been contemplating for a while, I’ve decided to add 3 (count ’em, three) new sections to AnJa: the Trigun, Lupin III, and Excel Saga sections. Once again, it will be a while before they are fully operational. But fear not! I’ll work on bringing them up as soon as I can.

In other news, my interview for Wal-Mart is today. I hope I get the job soon because McDonald’s is wearing at my last nerve.

I’m also putting up a prototype logo for AnJa on the Index and Navi pages. Enjoy!

Hey all you cats out there in Web-Land! I didn’t do too much on the site today. All I did was work on some more characters for the Ranma 1/2 section.

But in other news, my room is completed!!! Quan-Su, Dude! *Umm, don’t ask.* I moved all my stuff into it during the week after the paint dried on Saturday. It is DA BOMB!! I also ordered those Ranma 1/2 DVDs on Tuesday via my secret wad o’ money. I expect them to be here by next week. I also got 10 blank DVD+RWs so I can super-gank Eric’s Excel Saga!! I also bought the new Yu-Gi-Oh! game, 7 Trials to Glory: World Championship Tournament 2005. It’s not bad at all. I recommend getting this game. To my immediate knowledge, it’s not at our local Wal-Mart. I got mine from K-Mart for only $30. Speaking of Wally World, they called me and I have an interview with them Monday at 3 pm. I’ll be finally rid of McDonald’s for good!!

That’s all for today, boys and girls! Until next time…uhh…uhh…I forgot what we were doing.

Hi everybody! Well, Alex’s tournament started off today, and I only got 2nd. Oh well. Better luck next time. I just got word from Eric that he has taken over Alex’s tourney and Season 2 will officially start March 4th.

I have done some tweeking to the site, such as updating the Teen Titans Episode Guide and adding more characters to the Ranma 1/2 section. It will definatly take some time before it’s complete.

But my major updates are in the Yu-Gi-Oh! section. I added the updated checklist for Dark Revalation 1 and new sneek peeks for Dark Revalations 2, Dark Beginning 2, and the Scorched Earth Structure Deck. They’re da bomb!

In other news, my room will be up sooner than expected. Instead of starting on it Sunday, it will be Saturday. Huzzah! I’ll have to pick up some paint after I decide on a good color. After it completly dries, I’ll start the tedious process of moving all my crap into the room.

Well, it’s time to say goodbye for today. Check out Wednesday’s update for a special surprise if you can find it (hint: Strike Him!). Until next time, peace out.

“Curse those evil octopi!”

-Genma talking about octopi, obviously.

(Like last time, I don’t know the exact situation. I just found this clip on the Internet.)

Hey, hey, hey! I have opened the doors to the Ranma 1/2 Section! Huzzahh!! Unfortunatly, all I have is the Episode Guide completed. The Character Guide will take some time to complete, but I’ll let you look at what I have so far. As for the Episode Reviews, I’ll do them when I see the episodes myself which, unless something happens, will be whenever my DVDs come in. I’ll send the money order this coming Wednesday when I get paid, which means that it will come in 3 days after the money order is received. If you’re wondering, I’m ordering off of MegAnimeDVD.com. Check it out sometime.

In school, I managed to complete my group project. Well, sort of. I sent it to Steve (at my school) to link it to everyone else’s projects and to revise any errors on coding, so we’ll see the results next Wednesday.

You know guys, I’ve been thinking. When I was working on the Ranma 1/2 Section, I was thinking of adding more sections to AnJa. Some examples I came up with are sections on Excel Saga, Trigun, Lupin III, and Nine Inch Nails. So, what do you think? E-mail me with your suggestions. Check my About Me Section for Contact Info.

And that’s all she wrote for today. TTFN: Ta-Ta For Now! (yeah, I know that Tigger says it. So what?)

“How dare that lout toy with Shampoo’s feelings like that! I suddenly feel the need to strike him!”

Hello, boys and girls! I’m back again! I see you probably already saw my main update: the new and improved Index page with a stream of “Head Like A Hole” by Nine Inch Nails. Well, I wanted to add more, believe me, but my data transfer limit was exceeded yet again (curse you, Internet midgets!!!). The Ranma 1/2 section was officially started on today. It should be up in no time.

In other news, after nearly 20 years of waiting, I finally get my own room!!! Because my stepsisters aren’t coming over anymore, I get to super-gank their room. I start moving in this Sunday. Huzzahh!!

That’s about it for today. Until next time, take ‘er easy!

Hey, how goes it? Well kids, I’ve got good news and bad news. The bad news is that Ben a.k.a. the main proponent of the ODK movement, has officially retired from dueling. It was a hard thing for me to accept because he was without a doubt my toughest opponent. In the King of Games tourney, when it came down to me and Ben in the finals, I thought for sure I was toast because he had both CED and BLS in his deck (this was a Traditional Format tourney). But luckly for me, I was able to capitalize quickly before he had the time to summon either of them. I’ll admit, I got lucky when I beat him. But a win is a win, regardless of luck. But I’m sure that when I say that he will be missed as a Duelist, everyone will agree with me (although they won’t admit it; they’re probably happy that he quit because he was too tough for them.)

Now, on to the good news. With Ben relinquishing his Duelist status, he had no need for his deck so he’s selling all of his cards. And I managed to super-gank Mirror Force, Monster Reincarnation, and at long last CED. Fear Lord CED!!

So I suppose all is not lost.Or is it? Since Ben left the Duelist Circle, several others have thought of selling their cards for a quick buck or two. Case-In-Point: Jake and I were talking about him possibly selling his cards like Ben. I told him that everybody goes through a funk. Whether it’s a “where’s my life going?” funk or an “I don’t know if I wanna Duel anymore” funk, we’ve all been there. But we also bounce back. Those who don’t are dead, either physically or mentally.

I remember when I was in a Duelist funk, and then I invented the Dueling Dice Monsters game, a healthy combo of the TCG and Dungeon Dice Monsters. I bounced back. When I was in another Duelist funk, E announced his King of Games tourney. Again, I bounced back (and won 1st place, I might add). So even though it sounds super-corny, I guess Yu-Gi-Oh! is all about having fun with your friends. Playing the game is no different than playing b-ball, going to the pool, or just chillin with your friends. In principal, I mean. It’s just another way to have fun with your friends. Remember that, and you will never truly fall into a Duelist funk.

Well, I just had to get that off my chest. Anyway, now for the real reason you probably came here: updates! I’ve been trying to update the Yu-Gi-Oh! Episode Guide, but to no avail. I will keep on trying when I can. I have updated the Yu-Gi-Oh! section, though. I recently got word about a new tourney at Cards-n-Stuff. Check it out in the Tournament page. I also added the names of some Yu-Gi-Oh! video games I forgot. I added some new pics and a modified Ninja Gaiden Masked Devil theme in the About Me page and I gave the Navi a new Mortal Kombat Player Select Screen theme. I also am announcing the creation of Ultra TT:GC! Not much is available on it now, but I will keep you updated. Speaking of TT:GC, I added an extra season to it in order to spread out the story, totaling TT:GC to 8 seasons. I also decided to make a special series for TT:GC called TT:GC Origins. It will tell, obviously, the origins of each Titan and the main villains. I am also adding a new section to the Navi: the Ranma 1/2 section. It will take a while for it to be fully operational, but it’s an anime that I wanted to discuss.

Well, guys, it’s been fun seeing all your smiling faces, but I must leave you now. Until next time, be kool, rule school.

“Is it the light with the house on?”

Hello, boy and girls! It’s been a long while. I do apologize for the wait, but I’ve now finally done some major updating! I added the Soul of the Duelist, Rise of Destiny, and Dark Beginnings 1 checklists. I also added a sneek peek to the upcoming sets Flaming Eternity and Dark Revalations. I even added the long-absent Forbidden List. I also gave the Yu-Gi-Oh! homepage a spiffier Mega Man X3 Doppler Stage theme.I was way behind in the Yu-Gi-Oh! section.*heh heh* I also added the Season 4 episode guide for Teen Titans. And now for the big news. I have just recently completed the ENTIRE episode guide for TTGC!! Isn’t that great?! Obviously it will be a while before the episodes are completed in their entirity, but for now, you may glimpse at what lies ahead for our young heroes. Eriopolis and ODK have FINALLY, AT LONG LAST, UPDATED!! No, you heard right. UPDATED. So go check them out. Also, speaking of which, Eriopolis has allowed AnJa to use their Yu-Gi-Oh! library. And I will. Well, that’s all for now!

Hey ya! I just changed the Whuzzupp theme to a much better Earthworm Jim 2 song and I updated the long-forgotten Linx section. I also want to congradulate Eric on his new laptop. Hopefully he’ll update more now.

Well kids, I finally got my hands on the new Yu-Gi-Oh Online game and I gotta tell ya, it’s got potential. Imagine a Yu-Gi-Oh game that is never out of date; it has all the booster sets and promos, plus there’s a possibility that Upper Deck might release cards exclusive to Yu-Gi-Oh Online. You never know (wink, wink). However, there are drawbacks to the game. Actually, they’re more of double-edged swords than disadvantages. The game has a timer; you get 180 seconds to complete your turn and 30 seconds to decide whether or not to activate the effect of a card. If you run out of time for either situation, you automatically lose. This has actually helped me win a couple duels. On the whole (heh, heh), I like the timer because it eliminates the real scorge of the Yu-Gi-Oh game: the 1-hour turn-takers.

You know the type. The kind of people who just bought a Starter Deck and who can’t decide between wearing black or white socks. Or the kind who used to or still does play Magic or D&D or a similar game, and they’re used to taking forever to finish, and they take ages to finally Set a Monster and End their Turn. No offense to newbies, or the apperantly offensive term n00b, but sometimes you annoy me. Lucky for you, most of the time I’m willing to help you guys out. *sigh* Had to get that off my chest.

By the way, if any of you out there also have the game, my online name is “04smelsa”. We’ll duel sometime. Anyway, the online service is free until around April, but I don’t care. I’ll probably subscribe anyway.

In other news, the effects of the tsunami still ring here in Ohio, in the form of consistantly BLAH weather. It’s either raining or cloudy. I feel like I’m in Seattle. Now, why do I feel the urge to play Nirvana…?

Anyway, I also added some cool pics in the About Me section. They’re some of my favorite characters. Well, I gotta go. Bye!

Well, Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to all!! Not too much I added. I did some work on the Yu-Gi-Oh section and I added the Japanese theme to the Teen Titans section. That’s about it.

The holidays are over, but it’s all good. Ben & Eric liked their gift of virtually every NES and SNES ROM worth playing and Steve liked his NIN CD. My week-long vacation is also over, which sux. I don’t much like workin’, but hey, I do like the money. I can’t wait 2 graduate ITT Tech and get a real job. But that’ll be June 2006, so I’ll set my calandar for that.

I got word that there’s gonna be a sequel to the Yu-Gi-Oh game Worldwide Edition aptly called Worldwide Edition 2. And yes, it can be played in English. The promos ain’t half bad either. Check it on Toywiz.com. I also read in the latest issue of Shonen Jump that there’s gonna release another sequel, this time for World Championship Tournament 2004, again aptly named 7 Trials to Glory: World Championship Tournament 2005 .

That’s pretty much it for now. Good-Bye!

Hey, what’s goin’ on? I finally added the TTGC bios after I forgot to last time. Sorry! I removed the cool former theme of Whuzzupp!! for an adequete Mega Man X3 Intro Stage MIDI. The reason behind this is because everytime I try to add anything to the site, my data transfer limit is exceeded. So while we will all miss this incredibly cool theme, I must remove it for the sake of the rest of the site. If you want the song, contact me and put in your subject “Song”, otherwise I might not read it. Accursed SPAM!!!! See my new “About Me” page for contact info.

Well boys and girls, the holidays are upon us. And yes, I did here about the idiot that bought the $23,000 Cyber-Stein when he knows full well that Upper Deck is gonna re-release it as an easier-to-get promo card. Duh! And my folks say that spending $20 on cards is stupid…I mean honestly, who out there has 23 large to spend on one single card? Anyone? C’mon, don’t be shy. I guess no one except that idjit (translation: big idiot). Now if I had 23 big ones, besides obvious choices on what to spend it on, (car, house, semi-permenent vacation from McDonald’s, the list goes on), I would make sure it was all well-spent. Even if I used every last cent on nothing but Yu-Gi-Oh cards, I would make sure I got the most bang for my buck. For example, instead of getting 1 card, I would get lots and lots of booster boxes. Or better yet, I would buy UDE stock.

Well anyway, now that I’m out of Rant-Mode, I finally have my computer upgraded and man, what a difference! I went from my rockin (sarcastic) 128 MB of RAM to a poultry 640 MB of RAM. I also got a DVD burner, which is kickin’! I can’t wait to get another 512 MB stick of RAM! As of this update, all of my Christmas shopping is done! Huzzah!! All I have to do is give out the presents for my friends Eric and Steve. By the way, Eric; if you’re reading this, please update your site. I’m sure all of us would love to here what you’ve been up to lately.

In other news, our local Wal-Mart is announcing a Duelist League coming in January. That’s all I heard so far. I will keep you updated when possible. Another bit of local news, we are scheduled to be buried in snow 5 to 10 inches deep. Huzzah!! A White Christmas!!!

Well, boys and girls, it’s that time. Time to go the the outside world to deliver the first of my presents to Steve, as he is the closest, it’s getting dark, and with the descent of 5-10 in. of snow coming, he is the best choice. Sorry Eric, but you and Ben’s present is coming. Buh-By!
