about us -
anime guys ratings -
- We have a web
board up! It may take a little getting used to, but please give it a try.
It's set up so you don't have to be registered to read & post.
- Ugh! The holiday season is the worst time to go to the post office!
But we will still take requests for the mini-distro. Just be aware that
packages may take some time to arrive... Or it could be us, unwilling to
go through the crowd.
- We're going to begin revamping the anime
guys page. If you want to suggest a bishounen or voice your opinion,
e-mail us at email@example.com
- Chat with us! We're on the irc.fanfic.com server, #hanayorianime channel.
Not familiar with IRC? Some information provided here.
- Project Update: We test ran GuruGuru #5.
Looks pretty good. Yamabuki will begin wav-translating
#6 while Kaoru & Sana edit #5.
- Mini-Distro is back to its regular (still slow)
speed, since we stole another VCR from friends.
Please go to get daze! for
info on requesting.
- Now that Sana-chan is all settled down at a
permanant home, we might start working on the
Japan Trip 99 page. How
long has it been?
- Project Announcement: GuruGuru #5 has been
timed & translated! We'll start editing & fine tuning
the timing as soon as we help Sana-chan move.
- Pokemon + eBay = insanity? Happy Birthday Pikachu
cards are going for $300-$400. Burger King toys are
going for a lot too. All Sana-chan wants is the talking
Pikachu... All Yamabuki wants is the light-up Mew...
All Kaoru-chan wants is Togepy... (Not that we're
- The AWest
page hasn't been updated in a while, but we worked on
Detective Conan: Time-Bombed Skyscraper the
other day. It's being edited as we speak.
- SVHS machine is still broken, so mini-distro is going
to really slow down. For those who sent sob stories...
OK. We feel your pain (or your younger sister's). We'll
process your requests first! (j/k, folks who've been waiting
weeks for a response will mail-bomb us)
- On the commercial company front, Kare-Kano has been
acquired by Right Stuf!
Another shoujo title has been picked up. A shoujo title can
have mass appeal. Because Kare-Kano anime was so popular,
even guys in their teens and twenties are buying Lala in Japan.
- And let's support anime in general. Go see Mononoke Hime!
We went to the Westwood Premiere, but since that was free,
we're going to go again... take our money, Disney!
- Have you been collecting Pokemon toys at Burger King?
"I want a talking Pikachu!" (--Sana) "If you get a Mew, it's
mine." (--Yamabuki) "Why do I keep getting the ugly ones?"
- Has anyone started watching "Koori no Sekai," starring
our boyfriend, Takenouchi Yutaka? Sana-chan frantically
called Kaoru-chan and Yamabuki... yelling, "Takenouchi is
on the international channel, and HE'S TOPLESS!"
"Koori" is a dual-release (being released in Japan & the US
at the same time), so it's un-subbed. But who needs subtitles
when Takenouchi is topless on the screen?
- We're slowly working on the Japan
Trip page. Nothing is up yet, but we may start teasing
with some pictures.
- When you e-mail
us a request for mini-distro, please remember to include all
of the information that is listed on the
Get Daze! page. Also, one of our SVHS
machine needs to be fixed, so we will slow down the mini-distro
until we steal..er, borrow.. some VCRs from friends.
- Well, it looks like we finally have time to run masters of
Gokinjo Monogatari movie and Tenshi Nanka ja Nai
movie. It will be shipping out to Friends of Sana, for those
of you on the other side of the Atlantic. Thanks for waiting
- We will also be adding Yazawa Ai Collection tape
(Gokinjo and Tenshi movies) to our mini-distro.
And we will be removing KodoCha 13-16 & 17-20 from the
mini-distro list, since we know we'll get a bunch of requests
for Yazawa Collection for the time being.
Note: If you've requested the Yazawa Collection before,
there is no need to e-mail another request again. Sorry you
had to wait so long to get them.
- Japan Trip? We'll have the
first round of photos next week. Promise!
- Important News: We had some problems with the Mahoujin
Guru Guru 1-4 masters. Apparently, the LDs are in mono,
and we were running masters in stereo... which means, if you
have a stereo TV or some fancy AV set-up, you would be hearing
all the sounds from one channel, and only the background sound
from the other. (Thank you Mike M. for pointing this out. We'll
give you free stuff, so e-mail us back)
Until we fix it, please watch GuruGuru on a mono TV ^_^
- Project Update (!!!): Yes, that's right. We actually have
some updates on our projects. Mitsukake sent us the timed
scripts of Akachan to Boku #3 AND #4. Thank you,
Mitsukake!! Someone's actually been working, while others
have been... drooling over Kilik.
- And we're also getting in touch with the folks of
which is an anime convention for people like us! We're hoping
we can get our projects shown there... and maybe we can
participate by getting on panels too. We'll keep you updated
when we find out more about it.
- Sorry, we haven't worked on the Japan Trip Report nor
the Give-Away page yet. Soon. We promise.
