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!

“Come one. Come all. To Tendo Training Hall!”

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.

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!

Greetings and welcome to the revamped AnJa. No, AEC isn’t operational. But, I have corrected and updated the site. Why have I renamed the site? Well, “Andy’s Ultimate Site of Ultimateness” isn’t exactly search-engine friendly, so I renamed it to AnJa, a much easier-to-search name. I do apologize for the long lapse in updates, but I’ve been busy with work & school and my computer has 128 MB of RAM, which makes it very difficult to have multiple programs up at the same time, especially Yahoo! Pagebuilder, that memory-hungry little…

Well anyway, I am for sure going to give you a sneek peek at my new comic, “Teen Titans: Genesis Chronicles” as well as bios for TT:GC and Teen Titans (as in the show). Also, today is a very special day. Today is my B-Day. I’m now 19. Huzzah! I plan on buying that new Nintendo DS for X-Mas. I saw tons of pix & clipx of it and it is DA BOMB! My only gripe on it is the lack of games for it: only 6 will be available for the holidays, which is DA BUM! Oh well. I’ll have to wait until ’05 to get the good games, namely the Yu-Gi-Oh! game. Well kids, that’s all for now. See yuz!

Sup, y’all! It’s me again, comin’ to ya from ITT Tech in Dayton! I just added the Tournament page in the Yu-Gi-Oh section. The figures will be updated once I get them from Eric. As for my Teen Titans section, I will add stuff to it when I get home. I will only add bios and such. I won’t add the fanfic itself until the dialog is complete. Each issue will contain 4 episodes. I plan on having it run for about 7 years, or 84 issues, or 336 episodes. In other news, Super Tuesday is approaching. Personally, I’ll vote 4 Kerry b/c Bush killed jobs, Americans, and raised gas prices. Although I don’t wholly agree with Kerry’s views, anybody but Bush that can actually win would get my vote. I prefer Dean myself, but, alas; Kerry took him down. Well, children; I’d better get goin’. Catch ya later!

Hello again! I’m in school right now, so this isn’t a real update, but I will be posting some news regarding Yu-Gi-Oh, namely the next Tournament. The “Tournament of Champions” is looking to be quite the showdown. It is scheduled sometime in October, I don’t remember the date. Also, I’m gonna fix the Teen Titans section. Sorry about that! I’m also gonna release my own fanfic comic series called “Teen Titans: The Genesis Chronicles” It’s essentially a healthy balance of the comics and the show on CN. It’s not for kids, mainly for high schoolers-college students due to violence, content, and mild sexuality. Anyway, I gotta go. Laterz!

Well, it’s been 4 long months and a lot has happened. For starters, I graduated high school, started ITT Tech, and now have a Dell. Dude! lol. So, now that I am more able to access my site, I will be more active in updating it. I am planning on adding more things to the site at a later time. But 4 now, sit back, relax, and enjoy what I have so far. Oh, by the way,
