I did a thing!
A solo acoustic arrangement of Tomorrow, the opening theme from Full Metal Panic!
無印以前のドラマCD。全3話。声が違(ry ラグビー部：sm270108 ボン太君：sm275699
And the last one, Goddess Comes to Japan, the Suffering. I… kinda don’t mind Tessa’s voice, but Mardukas is WAY too deep O___O
I changed my mind, I don’t want to hear the rugby radio drama after all. But I’m listening to it anyways. XD I want my beloved Satsuki Yukino and Tomokazu Seki!
(note: you need a nico nico account to listen, but it’s free!)
フルメタル・パニック！ ドラマCD 一途なステイク・アウト
I… I found the radio drama for Single-Minded Stakeout. Note, it came out BEFORE the anime.
Different… Voice actors… That’s not Kaname, that’s not Fuwa, that’s NOT SOUSUKE!!!! AHHHH!!!!! I’m going crazy listening to this, wtf, THIS IS NOT MY FMP!!!!!!!!!
I ACTUALLY DID THE THING GDI
Yukiko is the ultimate life form and Seji is a gosh dang WIMP.
Finally the FMP’s saga is finished (In Italy late)… I’m happy and very sad at the same time because I’ve loved this manga from the bottom of my heart from the first moment I’ve read it. This saga has given to me a lot of emotions like sadness, happyness, rage and made me laugh. I will miss it so much and I’ve never find a manga story intense like this… Thanks for translated it in italian and in a lot of different languages :D A special thanks and gratitude to the master Shoji Gatou and Hiroshi Ueda for his fantastic illustrations (draw the Arbalest should be very difficult :S!!!!) and I’m very grateful to the Planet Manga for bringing this fantastic opera to Italy! I will continue to update my blog because I can’t forget Full Metal Panic and I will continue to follow it, and read and watch it over and over again (I hope for a Full Metal Panic Sigma’s anime… *__* should be fantastic. I could die watching it. LOL). Thanks my followers :) Stay tuned!
The forum was shut down in mid-late 2012, I believe. The site itself went down more recently, but it has already been a few months already, if I remember right.
As for what happened, the forum was shut down mainly because the webmistress had been ostracized on her own site in a volatile chat room encounter and for over a year felt uncomfortable going on and decided to shut it down rather than spend the time she didn’t really have to upgrade it to fit the phpBB updates when she herself didn’t want to use it anymore. Totally understandable, though I wish I’d known she’d felt that way sooner. I felt horrible when she announced the reason, as I’d been present during that encounter, though too busy to intervene.
For the site on the whole, I don’t know her reasons, all I can guess is that it probably stopped getting traffic and so she stopped paying for its hosting.
It’s because of Jindai High shutting down that I had started a forum some time ago, though it pales in comparison since I have to use services as I lack any kind of coding abilities. And that’s also why I’ve been working to build a new site, which while far less pretty, will hopefully, in the end, contain far more info.
I think we all miss Jindai High, though, it really was a lovely community and those ladies did a wonderful job building it.
A Full Metal Panic! Fansite
WE ARE LIVE!!!!
Right on the home page is the list of what is and isn’t done yet, so I won’t bore you with the details here. Please please, I welcome all comments and criticisms! (I’m still considering paying to remove the ads and have a domain name, but for now, those unfortunately must stay)
(Please note that I won’t be my usual always-around self tomorrow, so if anyone messages me with any issues/concerns or anything about the site, I won’t be getting to it until the evening, so I apologize for any issues that won’t be quickly resolved during this time)
Another update. Added info on the Whispereds, Black Technology, attached my Tumblr feed to the site, and fixed the Story page a little to make it more obvious that the summary is a full description of the story from start to finish of the novels.
I believe I’ll save reorganizing the characters for last, since at least that info is already there, and concentrate first on content, then on non-urgent fixes.
I’d said before that the anchors were down, well, they’re back up, so I’ll be able to use those to make navigating between the media and story pages easier when I get to those.
'Cause of the upcoming holiday, updates will probably be slow for a few days before I dive back into filling everything. Lots of tedious work ahead, fingers crossed that it'll all be done next weekend.
