 There was a crazy bug when using the text editor and inserting images.  Often clicking "Search this Site" in the image popup mutliple times would cause a browser crash.  This should not happen anymore.
FYI, I have tidy list of bugs that happen in the text editor on different browsers that I am still working on.  Plus I pushed out alot of bug fixes to other issues this week.  If you get a browser "CRASH" while using the text editor please let me know about it in the Bug Forums boards.  And also let me know what actions/clicks lead to the crash.  We dont want the text editor to ever crash your browser, so if it does, let me know so I can track down the problem. Thanks!

Pair Of Novels Show Author’s Style Of Combining Pop Culture Sensibilities With Music, Fashion And Romance
San Francisco, CA, August 18, 2009 – VIZ Media, LLC (VIZ Media), one of the entertainment industry's most innovative and comprehensive publishing, animation and licensing companies, lets readers explore themes of obsession, alienation, love, rococo and haute couture fashion, and punk rock and rebellion with novels MISSIN’ and MISSIN’ 2: KASAKO, written by best-selling author Novala Takemoto. MISSIN’ and MISSIN’ 2 are the latest additions to VIZ Media’s SHOJO BEAT imprint and will hit store shelves today. The novels will be available separately for $8.99 US / $10.50 CAN each or as a slip-case packaged set for $16.99 US / $19.99 CAN.

How far can you go to get what you want before you lose your mind?
Enter a strange world created by novelist Novala Takemoto (author of KAMIKAZE GIRLS, also available from VIZ Media) where music and the lost art of maidenly virtues walk hand-in-hand with madness. His characters stress, obsess, and sometimes get what they want... but often the life they thought they wanted is not always what they expected!

MISSIN’ focuses on obsession and how it can bring one to the brink of madness. In this bittersweet short story, the themes of KAMIKAZE GIRLS (rococo, punk rock, high fashion and rebellion) are pushed even further toward the edge of reason. A young woman estranged from the modern world longs for the feminine ideals and companionship depicted in the tales of a bygone era. When she finds her mentor in a rebellious punk rock singer named Missin, how far will her infatuation take her in a world where no one understands? And in "Little Shop at the End of the World," the designs of the legendary Vivienne Westwood keep a young woman with a secret from losing her mind.
MISSIN 2: KASAKO is the stylish, stressed-out sequel to MISSIN'. Stalker turned rock star Kasako has everything she ever wanted. But between the restraints of forbidden love, a suffocating record deal, and fans overdosing at their concerts, Kasako must find a way to keep hair-trigger tension pitched to a dangerous high without destroying herself. Kasako has never been what you'd call a stable girl--and this new fast-paced life may be just enough to finally push her sanity over the edge. Be careful what you wish for. You just might get it. And your dream life may turn out to be a nightmare!
”Novela Takemoto took Japan and then the U.S. by storm with his hugely popular novel, KAMIKAZE GIRLS, and these works, MISSIN’ and MISSIN’ 2: KASAKO show the early urgent energy and pop culture themes that later brought the author international recognition,” says Gonzalo Ferreyra, Vice President Sales & Marketing, VIZ Media. “Takemoto is loved by readers for his incorporation of all that is dark, cool, different and defiant, and these new novels will delight fans of rock and roll, high fashion, romance and rebellion in all its wonderful forms!”
Novala Takemoto was born in Kyoto and was a candidate for the Yukio Mishima Prize for Literature two years in a row with EMILY in 2003 and LOLITA in 2004. He has published more than a dozen works. In addition to KAMIKAZE GIRLS, Takemoto's other novels include ULOKO HIME, TWINS, A CHILD ABANDONED BY DEUS, and CALPS ALPIS. In Japan a collection of his essays as well as a picture and photo book have been published, and his sequel to KAMIKAZE GIRLS was published in June of 2005.

Ok, fist i know one of the staff already posted about one of these, but screw them this is my take on the news (please forgive me almighty staff), to add to my gaming related news i'm going to be posting these blogs, unlike the articals that make it to the actual news section, this will about all games, not just ones with heavy anime theme.
to lets go
PS3 slim
 Well after mimicking the achevment system for the 360 (witch ripped it of from ratchet and clank's skill point system) it looks like the PS3 will now gain the ability to die while you play games, ok, might it will work great, though i dought it, i don't see them making the tank work well this also come with a price cut, this brings the chance for a PS3 comeback, an other thing i don't will happen either, most who already have a 360 probably won't go buy a PS3 with it lists of exclusives, despite it being a lot bigger then xbox 360 exclusive
Xbox failure
Speaking of Xboxes, a recent survey says that about 54 percent of xbox 360s sold have been hit by the red ring of death, now i do have a 360 and love it (believe or not) thus far i haven't be hit with a red ring od death, but i'm sure it will happen eventually, who would have thought that releasing some to early may cause it to suffer with issues like over heating, go figure microsoft.
Finally Fable 3 announced for holiday 2010
And the two people behind Fable Three, copy and paste, most likely there will be little difference in this and two, put hopefully it will have a decent story, yea right, like that will happen.
 For those who want to see more upbeat takes on the news, i'm sorry but my optimistic.exe doesn't seem to be compatible with vista, another thanks to Microsoft jk
i'll try to be more optimistic next time

Ok, so with the next new alteir game (i relize that the DS port of Alteir Anna will be a first for us in the states) how is one going to get there fix of alchemy, why not Mana Khamia 2: Fall of Alchemy a spin off of the Altier it looks like they're taking the alchemy system back to more of an alteir Iris form by allowing you to convert object into varies elemental mana then use that to recreate the items you have already created. it also looks like the combat system from the original game in witch you had three characters battle and three in a support postion, The three in the battle postion would start the battle, but you could call in the support to follow up an attach or take a hit, while in support characters would slowly regain SP and HP. as for the story not much is know but it will allow you to choose between two characters, each with there own story. this looks like a great adtion the the Alteir frachise and i can't wait to get my hand on it it August 27 2009

Well Guitar Hero RIP, cause you are now dead to me, This is pretty lousy set list if you consider you can get a lot of the songs for Rock Band already, the same problem i had with world tour (that and the mic seemed to be a lot more intuitive in rock band)
| | WYSIWYG editor. Cool. 
So, yes, I've been absent; work has been absolutely insane lately but it looks like it's calming down once more. I won't go into details (don't want to get into trouble for blogging about work. Yech.) 
Let's see... 
- Have found a little time to play Fat Princess. It is GLORIOUS. 
- Have a lot more doodles and comics to work on. Practically bursting at the seams with 'em. Forcing myself to jam out as many of them as I can before I start posting them, though...probably will get to it later in the week. 
- Ponyo was cute. 
- I am looking forward to new Project Runway because i am a nerd. 
That's about it for me. Good to be back!

If you watch Anime at all, you should have the CCCP codec pack installed.  If not, shame on you!  Anyways, if you watch Anime in .mkv and are also using Windows 7, you will notice that there are no subtitles loading.
Yes, I experienced this.  Heading over to the CCCP official forums for help, I found nothing useful.  Now, Google is your friend, it's everyone's friend.  Having googled this problem, I found the solution to this problem by Snowulf.
Too lazy to click on the link?  Here's what you do to solve this problem: 

  1. Open "Media Player Classic".
  2. Hit the "O" key (this brings up the Options window).
  3. Click on "External Filters".
  4. Click "Add Filter".
  5. Select "DirectVobSub (Auto-loading version)".  Click "OK".
  6. On the right-hand side, click the radio button for "Prefer".  Click "OK".
  7. Restart Media Player Classic.
  8. Watch Animez!
