Gomen nasai for not updating in what seems like forever. There's been too much going on! And lots of frustration in the mecha department. -_-. Plus, I'm trying to get things together for my Unmei revamp I'm unveiling on 01.01.01 (redundant, ne?) which is the new year and the anniversary of my pages.

I promise once we figure out how we're gonna work the mecha design from here on out, regular updates will become common. Just wait 'til everything calms down. ^_^. Until next update, ja ne!


HAPPY BIRTHDAY OTAKU IN TRAINING!!! ^_^! Today one of our own is celebrating his birthday. We at Envision send all our birthday wishes to him. ^_^. Have a good one!

Also, Happy belated Thanksgiving to all you who celebrate this holiday. Did you all eat enough turkey minna-sama? Surprisingly, the bishonen and I still have food left over . . . twenty four bishonen and you'd think all the food would be gone by now. ^_^*. Kenshin made too much . . . but it sure was good. ^_^!!! Yum de gozaru yo! ^_^x!

Well, we're supposed to be meeting on Sunday . . . I think . . . I hope . . . ^_^. So we'll have an update for you then. Now I just wanted to post a special birthday wish to Otaku In Training and Envision's well wishes to you on the day after Thanksgiving (we were all too busy yesterday to say anything. ^_^*). Until next update, ja ne minna-sama!


Well, not too much to report here. ^_^. Haven't been doing all that much lately. Met yesterday but couldn't work on the mecha due to Shorty's garage filled to the brim with cars. ^_^*.


Another update! ^_^. Well, I'm about finished with everything for this site. Just trying to get the image map working . . . then we'll be good to go!

In other news, no, I didn't get the manga I wanted. Why are they always out of volume 23 of Ruroken when I go to buy it? -_-! So what'd I get instead? The soundtracks to "The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time" and the newly released "The Legend of Zelda: Majora's Mask". No, Otaku In Training, for the hundreth time, they are not a collection of expensive MIDI's!!! These are the real deal too. Imported from Japan, and I've got the empty wallet to prove it. Man, the new CD's were expensive! But that's what you get for a two disc set imported directly from Japan. And the music's as wonderful as I expected it to be! I can't wait to play this game!

Well minna, hopefully the site should be up soon! Until next update, jaa~!


Well, long time no update. Gomen ne minna! There's been alot going on.

Finally found out why Anipike hasn't posted our link. Turns out Envision wasn't Netscape compatible! So I've been working like a madwoman fixing all the coding and giving this place a new look. Like it?

Hmm . . . well, I'm not quite done yet so it's back to work.

Oh, what's in the future? Well, tomorrow Envision's taking a road trip to a Japanese bookstore. Manga here I come!!! ^_^! Woo hoo!!!

Also, there have been a few cast changes so . . . check them out.

Until next update, jaa~!


Hai, we had an Envision meeting yesterday so the mecha page is updated.

In other news . . . hmm . . . what do we have to report? Uh . . . oh! I'm actually starting to get better at DDR! ^_^. Shorty says so! And she's a pro so . . . ^_^!

Also, pumpkin smoothies are very delicious. They taste like a frozen slice of pumpkin pie. But it's not the best thing to drink it when it's cold outside and going to rain and you're sitting outside in the wind with the rest of Envision wearing a coat you borrowed from Shorty. ^_^*.

What did that have to do with anything? What do any of my rants have to do with anything? ^_^*. I'm a little like Sana-chan from "Kodomo no Omocha" when it comes to my tangents, ne? ^_^*.

Ah, we also are still waiting for Anipike. They didn't post the link so I had to personally email them to see what was going on. I haven't received a reply but maybe the link will be added to the new links tomorrow. I can hope . . . it's been a long time since I submitted my link . . . I'd really love to see this page up and running and open to the public sometime before the new year. ^_^*.

Anyway, enough of my sarcasm. 'til next update (the weekend before Halloween), jaa~! Oh, by the way, Envision's going to get together for Halloween (we aren't going as mecha because they aren't done yet -_-*!) so I'll take pictures. ^_^


Nothing much to add this update. Didn't update the mecha page because we didn't work on the mecha last meeting (I did some work over the week though, but nothing major). So what did we do last meeting? Well . . .

We traveled over to a Japanese store that sold kimonos so that we could work on our other costume (more details on that later). Then we spent the rest of the day manga shopping and hanging out. Well, I manga shopped. Got me the latest volume of X (which would be #15) and a J-pop magazine. ^_^. J-pop ga daisuki! ^_^!!!

Anyway, Envision's supposed to be meeting tomorrow due to the fact that Shorty's got somewhere to go on Sunday. But I'm not feeling all that great at the moment so I'm not totally sure we'll even get to have a meeting tomorrow. And furthermore, I dunno how they're going to like the fact that I haven't done any work on the mecha this week . . . oh well . . .

Well, I'm tired and feeling sick. I'm going to go sleep . . . or watch anime . . . whichever makes me feel better . . . I think some nice fluffy pillows and a volume or two of Tenkuu no Escaflowne sound good . . . ja ne for now.


Alright, I realize I've gotten lazy with my updates . . . gomen . . . I'm juggling lots of things right now so . . . it might take a little time to update. At least I update almost once a week and not . . . every four months or so . . . ^_^*. Or worse, annually. Hopefully things'll get better.

Anyway, slight update on the mecha page. Nothing big . . . we kinda wasted the majority of the meeting trying to decide on alternative cosplay outfits . . . and downloading/watching/etc. anime off the web. But darnit, anime's important!

Well, I brought some of the pieces home so I'm slowly working on it. I'll update more after the next meeting! Jaa~!


Yeah, I realize I haven't updated in a while . . . well, Envision cancelled it's meeting last week so there really wasn't anything to post! Sucks I had to be sick . . . in fact . . . I had gotten over it only to be reinfected! I swear, I can't stand people who don't cover their noses when they sneeze!!!

We did have a meeting yesterday so like with any Envision meeting . . . the mecha page is updated.

Okay, I think my fever's coming back so I'll cut the update short and go rest. When's the next meeting? Dunno . . . maybe next week sometime . . . it's complicated because now we have to work around everyone's increasingly busy schedules . . . and difficult mecha designs . . . and Halloween costume deadlines . . . Anyhow, I'm outta here. See you next update! Jaa!


The meeting yesterday went well . . . still got lot done . . . not as much as I had hoped but . . . it's something! So the Mecha page is updated.

In other news . . . I'm still waiting for Anipike to upload the link to this site. I sent it in two weeks ago!!! Where is it? Mou, I'm so impatient! ^_^*.

Dunno when the next update'll be. I'm still waiting for free time to finish the AX pages . . . there's a lot to do right now . . . so until next time . . . I'm totally exhausted! I'm going to go catch some z's. Ja matta minna-sama!


Yesterday's meeting went over quite well. So I updated the mecha group's page. ^_^!

In other news, picked up a new manga yesterday when Otaku In Training and I and some time to kill waiting for Shorty to return from a "previous engagement." I gotta say, as violent as it may be I still love "Blade of the Immortal." It's so good!!!

Next update? Dunno . . . hopefully if my schedule permits I'll finally be able to put up those AX pages. So we'll see.

Also, I'd like to give a huge thumbs down to the Escaflowne dub. I can't stand it. The people from Oh Crap Escaflowne Ain't for Nine-year-olds but I Need the Cash (OCEAN INC.) are doing a horrible job at it.

One more thing before I leave. I'd just like to say, "GOD BLESS FANSUBS!" ^_^. Okay, ja ne for now! ^_~!


Met with the rest of Envision last Sunday (I know this is kind of a belated update, I've been busy!) We planned everything out and we're going to stick to what we've got! So it looks that the first phase of the mecha process might be done in time for Christmas. Yeah, Christmas . . . but that's if everything goes according to schedule.

Envision's getting together tomorrow . . . hopefully we'll get a lot done . . . but I always say that and look what's it's gotten us lately. ^_^*.

In other news, upated the Non-mecha cosplayers' page and the Escaflowne dub page. Check 'em both out! Until next update, ja ne!


Not much going on now. Envision's supposedly going to get together tomorrow. This time we're going to get organized and plan everything out!

Still recouping from yesterday's trip to the mall. Walking around for hours and blowing all your money on Ruroken related merchandise is always fun . . . but not after an exhasuting two hour long game of tennis that morning . . .

Well, updated the dub list. I've seen two episodes so far and all I gotta say is "Bleh!" Check out the list to see what else I have to say about it. Hopefully more updates'll come within the next few days! Ja ne for now! I gotta find some ice for my feet . . . they hurt!


Small update on the mecha page. Other than that . . . not much more to say.

Finally saw "Ninja Scroll". I enjoyed that. A little more violent than I care for . . . but nevertheless it was a good movie to watch. ^_^!

Also, in a fit of massive boredom and depression I decided to take a trip to the nearest mall to see if I could buy some new anime. Which I did. What did I get? Volume one (DVD) of "Serial Experiments Lain". I watched it right when I got home. I must say, that's a great series. I can't wait to buy more! It's wonderful and . . . heck, it made me feel tons better! I've heard the series is rather twisted . . . and it shows. But it's good!!!

Next Envision meeting? Possibly next Sunday . . . I think . . . Hopefully we actually work on the costume this time . . . ^_^*.


Little did I know Envision would actually get together today . . . ^_^. Pleasant surprise. Napping and suddenly Shorty and Otaku In Training are at my doorstep asking if I want to hang out and watch anime. How can one pass that up?

What'd we see? Vampire Hunter D!!! Subbed! It's a lot better in Japanese, let me tell you. D's extra cool! And his hand is awesome! We also forced Shorty to watch the dubbed Escaflowne. Needless to say, she hated it as much as we did.

After that we went down to a local arcade and messed around. Shorty went nuts at the DDR machine. Otaku In Training and I decided to play ticket games, just to waste all the coins we had. We ended up getting over 1000 of the things! It was pretty fun! The look on everyone's face when we tallied up all those tickets was priceless. ^_^. We blew all our coins but had a great time doing it.

When is Envision getting together to actually do some work? Good question. As of right now things for Friday or anytime this weekend aren't looking good. So possibly next week sometime. Hopefully . . .


New page today! Added something on the new dub that aired this morning. It's definitely worth checking out. Especially if you saw it and you're a fan of the original Escaflowne. Also, did a little update on the mecha pages.

Gomen that I'm not going to be able to get those AX pages up this weekend. Some of the pic files had errors in them and I haven't had time to rescan and work them into the pages. I'll have them up as soon as I can.

Next update? Well, Envision's looking to get together sometime at the end of next week. So hopefully we'll have more to post . . . ja matta!


What's new? Well . . . not much . . . haven't been able to scan anything. ^_^*. I've been really busy. Just a small update. Why? Because two members of Envision have purchased new anime within the last few days. ^_^! What did I get? Well . . . actually, what I've been looking for . . . Ninja Scoll DVD. Alright! As for Otaku In Training (who was the other member to purchase anime) . . . what he got escapes me at the moment. I'm too tired . . . I need caffeine . . . Until next update . . . oyasuminasai . . . Zzz . . . zZz . . . zzz . . .


Added what Envision spent yesterday doing. Reloaded the pictures so hopefully they're all working now. I also went through and added a link to AnimeCow.   In addition, I went through all of the pages and made the date consistent. Sometimes I had left out the zeros before the single digit numbers. Oh well, that's fixed now.

Next update? Hmm . . . well if all goes as planned, Envision's going to get together on 08.18.00 so . . . sometime this weekend possibly. Depends on if we get together . . . and what we accomplish . . . and if I ever find time in my busy schedule to scan the AX pics and finish those pages . . . ^_^*.


First update! Alright! If you're reading this that means Envision's web site has been successfully uploaded! Alright! ^_^!

Before I say anything else I'd like to say a big "arigato gozaimasu" to Otaku In Training who ever so kindly donated his old web space and non-functional site! Arigato! ^_^!

Not all of the pages work yet. That's due to the fact that I either haven't had time to finish them all or the fact that I haven't gotten all of the stuff to do so. Like the Anime Expo pages. Today I'm picking up the pictures from Otaku In Training to use on the site so . . . obviously those pages aren't ready yet. ^_^*. It'll all be done soon. I'm hoping everything will be 100% functional by next update.

When is the next update? Well, I'm not sure . . . ^_^*. Hopefully within the next week or so. ^_^*. See you then! ^_~!
