07/18/2003 FANFIC MACHINE
Yeah, another small update. Made a slight tweak to the Site/Fic of the Day links so they wouldn't take you right off the Castle J site. Also had yet another fanfic submission from Sunstar, which can be reached through the Fanworks page. Err...that's about it - something more concrete next time, promise. ^^;;
07/16/2003 LINK UP!
castlej.mangatoanime.com once again points here, yay!
On the subject of links, I'd like to wish a very belated birthday to the hardworking sisters over at Saber Marionette Media. Their site gets bigger with each redesign, and they must be proud of its quickly growing population that hasn't stopped since February 2002 - not to mention that it's the #1 listed page on a Google Search for "saber marionette". Great job and keep it up, Sachi and Echi!
Like Ponta-Kuns? Who doesn't? They're lovable, they're colorful, and they're cute! Fire up your browser for Floresta dos Ponta-Kuns (or "Forest of Ponta-Kuns", for the Portuguese impaired). A creative site with the first ever Ponta motif, and worth a look.
Next up, I've uploaded more writing from submitter Sunstar648. There were a few problems with the zipped files that previously resided in the Fanworks section, and that should be resolved now that it's HTML-based.
Prepare for INFORMATION OVERLOAD. I'm currently working on the less embelleshed side of Castle Japoness - that is, the information. Encyclopedia Japoness is on its way, and will be a navigatable resource on just about every detail I've encountered since my first encounter with SMJ. Expect information ranging from Major or Minor characters to Technologies to Strange Compilations. No date set for this major addition yet, but stay tuned...
06/24/2003 SPRING CLEANING, SUMMER STYLE
Okay, Graduation has me working and in preperation for a move. My secondary interests have taken a hit as a result, being this site in general, this site in my fanfic, and this site in the RPG project. I have a number of documents I planned to upload ages ago that I can't quite locate if my life depended on it. :( Anyhow, this is a status update, if nothing else.
First Item of business: castlej.mangatoanime.com is down for the time being. The redirector (m2a, that is) has changed hosts, and thus needs a different configuration implementation. I hope this will happen sometime soon. Until then, www.oocities.org/emmaworshiper still points you here.
Item Two: B-Werx productions has finished, uh...production of the J vs M manga which I've been ranting and raving about like a lunatic for the past few months. See it in all its splendor over at B Tuv's. I will likely add my own mirrored zip here at Castle J in updates to come.
Item Three: I've received an offer of help for the SMJ RPG which I still need to follow up on (*pokes self with reminder stick*). Still, if you're art savvy, or know of anyone else who is that would like to contribute to the project, please get in touch with me.
Item Four: A fanfic submission was uploaded for Sunstar648. Missing items that still need uploads are an interview with Dark Phoenix, and Terra II's weakest link by Gata Fairy.
Whew! Made it through, using only 20 minutes worth of typing! Big update coming in a month or so. Watch for it!
10/29/2002 HAPPY HAPPY, JOY JOY
Guess what? Guess what? An episode of J vs M is in Doujinshi production! Woohoo! I can't wait to see this stuff as it makes its appearance. I entered the first quarter of J vs M episodes in B.Tuv's Fic Contest and just got word that "Achoo! Otaru Gets A Cold!" not only made it to the finals, but took first place! :) I've truthfully always had a soft spot for that particular chapter - I think it's one of the chapters that best mimics the SMJ style...and now I see it get a little more life. Can't wait. Check out B. Tuv's Saber Site for more details (it's been added to my favorites since a few weeks ago).
In other news, you may have noticed the strange temperment of my announcer, Hanagata - above. Read to the end of the newly uploaded J vs M episode and it should be no surprise to why he hates me now. Lighten up, Hanako, it's just a fic! Until next time, enjoy the show...and old friend of the site might just be making an appearance in the coming months. ;)
06/20/2002 YET ANOTHER QUICK UPDATE
Sorry, not much to say other than work has become my current life....gaah. Anyhow, to treat you, there's a brand-spanking MST from the keeper of the vault of SMJ insanity, Andy...check it out on the nullspace link below! Catch ya laters! :)
05/31/2002 ANOTHER QUICK UPDATE
Demongoddes's interview is now up! And I'm also pleased to announce that CastleJ will be the temporary host for Andy's Null Space, the SMJ MSTS. Catch you when the next J vs M hits the scene...hopefully not much longer...
