Off-Topic » Caanan looks alot like...

There is a likeness there but considering that Takeuchi designed her she definitely seems to be a mix between Saber from Fate Stay Night and Ryougi Shiki from Kara no Kyoukai  imo.

Off-Topic » favorite Japanese music

Well some good rock bands imo are Orange Range, Plastic Tree, Asian Kung-fu Generation and UVERworld. I especially like RASUTO SHIN and RIRAITO by Asian Kung-fu Generation.

Some good composers are Kenji Kawai, Ichiko Hashimoto, Naoki Sato, Hideyuki Fukusawa and of course Yuki Kajiura (her works as Kalafina and Fiction Junction are good). They have all done some amazing work on different anime series and the non anime stuff is good too.

I don't listen to much J-Pop but I do like Nana Kitade's Kesenai Tsumi remix and who ever it was that did the OP for spice and wolf. I love that song.

Editing & Tools » Adding images to a series

Ah ok. Concerning episodes though, what would be the best way to add pictures? Should I create a new gallery for each episode? What I would mainly like to do is add the title screens to each episode so that that picture appears in the top left by the episode name. As far as I know the only way to do that is to add the image when you add the episode.

General Discussion » worst dub youve ever watched

Near the beginning of the Full Metal Panic DVDs when the anti-piracy warning comes up,  they have recordings done by the English voice actors that chastise the person who just bought it about not pirating. Needless to say, they are abominable. I remember hearing the Captains voice which didn't fit the character at all imo.

 I guess you could say the only dub I've ever actually watched, as apposed to hearing a bit of it and laughing at it, would be DBZ way back when it aired on cartoon network. At the time I wasn't aware of japanese animimation so I thought DBZ was just another cartoon. Now though, I actually prefer the english on that one because whoever released it did a COMPLETE revision of all the audio to go along with the dub. It sounds so much better than the Japanese.

Editing & Tools » Adding images to a series

I am wondering how to add an image to a series as opposed to a franchise. The ribbon button only seems to affect the franchise page. As far as I can tell, if an image isn't uploaded for a series when the series itself it submitted (and a franchise exists for that series) then it cannot be changed. I tried to add an image for the RahXephon series but I can't figure out how(it only changed the franchise page).  As things stand there is no image when you browse for anime series and no image if you add the series to a list. If you add the franchise however there is one. Am I missing something?

Edit: I think this also applies to individual episodes. When you add an episode you have the option of adding an image but I do not see a way to upload one once the episode has been added. Can someone clue me in one this?

I've already tried that, it doesn't work. Any other ideas?

Bug Reporting » Issue with adding series

If I try to add a series I am not able to. There is a loading bar that appears in the text input box and it never goes away. Looks like this:

I guess because of that I can't upload an image either so I can't complete the necessary fields. My browser (Firefox 3.0.4) recognizes the upload image button as a link but does nothing when I  click it. This problem only happens when I try to upload a series, everything else (manga, characters, franchises etc) works fine.  A few days ago I submitted the Bakumatsu series and I was able to input everything and upload an image. I haven't updated my browser or anything so I have no clue why this is happening.  Any ideas?

General Discussion » Learning japanese?

Well if all you want to do is comprehend and speak then it's fairly simple as far as language goes(not to say it isn't difficult but in comparison to some other languages). Unlike all the romance languages,  Japanese nouns do not have gender or number and that in and of itself makes things MUCH more simple and intuitive imo. Verb and adjective conjugation is pretty easy too, nothing complicated. Like others have said though, one of the best things you can do is simply expose yourself to the language and get used to hearing it. That will increase your comprehension and vocab. You might be surprised by how much you can learn passively.

General Discussion » Feature Requests

It's a minor detail but I noticed that for the birth date on the character pages you need a day,  month and year for the edit to work.  Maybe you could divide those fields up so someone could enter the year and not have to pick a random date for the other two since I don't think anime often gives that. Or maybe you could just change that field to "Character Age" ( or add it separately) since it's more likely that you would know that as opposed to their birth date.
