Off to Anime Expo for the weekend

Sorry for the lack of updates lately, I’ve been rather busy of late.  I’m heading off to Anime Expo this weekend, but I plan to knock out a couple books when I get back, so look forward to that.

Christmasy News

Some Christmasy news for you all.  First, and best (and completely off-topic), is that Yasunori Mitsuda updated with some news about the mythological Chrono Cross Arrange Album (and there’s even a sample!):

In other news, I have a bunch of doujinshi to release as Christmas gifts for you all, so check back on Thursday for some very special treats!

Many Rapidshare Links Down

It looks like a lot of my links, especially in the 0405 archive, got blocked pending deletion by Rapidshare, so I’ll have to re-upload them over the next few days. Please bear with it.

EDIT: Looks like all the links on the three archive pages were killed. I’ve taken them down for now. I’ll probably kill my two since I’ve updated my categories so it is easier to find items. I’ll probably make individual posts for the Tokorodokoro files. It’ll take a while to get everything back up, though, so please be patient.

EDIT 2: Individual posts for Tokorodokoro’s files are up, and back-dated to September 12th. You can quickly get to them using the Tokorodokoro Archive category link on the left. I’ll start getting my old scans back up on RS during the week; in the meantime, just use Megaupload.

EDIT 3: All Rapidshare links should be back up now. However, it looks like some Megaupload links are now down, so I’ll be going through and getting those re-uploaded. Please comment if you notice any down so I can get them back up as soon as possible.

EDIT 4: I believe all the links are now working.  Please alert me if any go down again.  I’ll have some new scans tomorrow.

New Contributor

As you all may have noticed, there is a new addition to the growing* ranks of staff here at anonymous-scanner.net. Please welcome Nameless Translator, who was looking for someplace to host his translations.  With his help I shall soon rule the world!  Mwahahahahah!

Or if not rule the world, at least bring you delicious porn.

* – Growth of 200% sounds better than a growth of one to two…  :)

News and Site Updates

Sorry I haven’t posted anything new recently, I’ve been really busy with work, life, and some backend stuff for the blog. You may have noticed some of the changes already, particularly with the sidebar. Also, access to some of the download links has been spotty over the past couple days because I went through and consolidated them all to single accounts at Megaupload and Rapidshare. Sorry if it caused any inconvenience, but they should all be working now (and please let me know if you find any that aren’t!). I promise to get a new scan up this weekend, too. :)

New Stuff:

  • Archive lists in the sidebar. All download links (with samples), except the most recent ones, have been consolidated into a “quick access” list. They’re currently split between A-M and N-Z; I’ll probably have to split them down further as time goes on.
  • Tokorodokoro at Night’s doujinshi translation archive. I agreed to host 0405′s doujinshi translations since his site will be going dark soon, and have put up them all up in a single archival list, similar to my own scan archives.
  • New Category dropdowns. I put three new category dropdowns in the sidebar to make it easier for you all to find exactly what you want. They are Artist/Circle, Fetish, and Source. If there is something not listed that you’d like added, please let me know and I’ll see what I can do. :) I’ve still kept individual links for the primary categories for those who want to browse that way. I hope everyone finds them useful!

I have a slew of unprocessed scans that I need to work on, so hopefully now I can get to regular updates!

Artbook News

One of my favorite artists, Kunihiko Tanaka, is soon releasing his first artbook (due out in November), titled Ryu-Kotsu. Even if you don’t know his name, you’ll probably know some of his work. He is the primary character designer of Xenogears, Xenosaga, Key the Metal Idol, as well as creator of Hoi Hoi San and Fam & Ihrie (aka Ruin Explorers). He is also currently working on promotional art for the upcoming Sega DS game World Destruction. I haven’t been this excited about a new artbook for a long time. :)

Official sites for the artbook:

So far I’ve only found it available for pre-order it from Play-asia:

Off to Anime-Expo

Hey all, I’m heading off to Anime-Expo today. I have a bunch of unprocessed scans to work on, so I may get some items posted while I’m there, but no guarantees. :)
