I've discussed this before in the comments section of several posts, but I think it deserves its own article. When I click the stats link I am greeted with an overview that includes page views, posts, traffic sources, and audience in the form of a world map. Clicking the links brings up a page dedicated to each subject and then some.

Nothing too surprising here. The usual suspects are on top of course. For some reason that rant about yuri anime has been popping up for some reason. This topic is the most important of all. It tells me what brings people in. That's why on my personal blog I spent so much time talking about Rosenkreuzstilette, Rosario Vampire, and Discworld Noir instead of Oh My Goddess and Inukami.

This is very important for me as someone that designs his own web sites. You see each browser handles HTML, CSS, and JS in different ways. I have to program based on what people coming to my sites are using. Of course Google does all the coding for me here. Thank goodness.


Interesting if you have some desire to see what operating systems visitors are using. Really not at all useful.

Again only useful if you have some morbid curiosity about what countries people are calling in from. It does confirm that on my personal blog most people come in from England, France, and sometimes Germany to read about the werewolf private detective. Here on this blog the number of visits to Yuru Yuri and other anime related posts tend to match up with the number of visits from Japan.

Thanks to a yuri doujinshi site for the flag counter.

Fun fact: for the past eight years I had a “mysterious” follower on my personal blog. As soon as I mentioned these stats in a comment, that follower disappeared.

I'm Still Her Fan.

Not too long and fortunately before it was too late I decided I just had to tell someone that she is still has fans and that she is missed. After a couple months of searching I found her. In my usual brain damaged way I got my point across. She said she appreciated my efforts and she would really appreciate it if I would never bother her again. Then she took steps to make sure of that.

 I'm not bothered her reaction at all. It's not the first time I've ever seen something like that. Somebody abandons the Net and everything that came with it. Even going so far as to not acknowledge old friends. Remember Joanime? She was a very popular Flash artist and voice actress in the early and mid 2000's. I was perusing my flash videos folder and found a bunch of her stuff I had saved. I decided to check out her site. It was blank and the Internet Archive was blocked. I eventually found a forum run by an old friend of hers and he said he did find Joanime but she summarily blocked him. Something caused her to leave the Net. I don't know what and it's not important. I understand. I mean there are times when I feel my life would be so much easier if I were to flip the switch and turn everything off and just watch YouTube videos.

As to the subject of my fandom, I bare no ill will what-so-ever for being blocked. I do know of some of the bullshit she had to deal with a lifetime ago and my showing up out of the blue the way I did disturbed the peace she was enjoying and probably brought back a lot of bad memories. Then again maybe she doesn't like yuri, fox girls, cemeteries, or lesbian fox girls in cemeteries. I understand I was at fault and should have left well enough alone.

 I will continue to wait patiently for the day she decides to come back to the Net. I'm not holding my breath. But, I am biting my tongue. Someday when I flip out and quit I'll leave a parting message detailing all. Then again maybe if the right person calls I might spill all.

Update to How Many Ears Does Amy Rose Have.

This is from the game Sonic Boom Fire and Ice, I think. Apparently the ears on top of their heads do work.

The Incredibly Over Simplified Explanation to Star Wars Force Ghosts.

Force Ghosts appear to those that they have a strong attachment to and have a strong attachment to them.

That's it. Continue reading if you want.

Maybe I should begin by explaining my fan credentials of Star Wars. There's not much there. As of this writing I've seen all but Rouge One. I've had the Blu-Ray since it came out but instead opted to watch When They Cry for the second time in a year. (Pretty amazing plot holes in that series.) I've only watched two seasons of Clone Wars. Excessively boring and an excessive amount of violence. I've opted out of ever watching Rebels. (So much yuri anime out there and it won't watch itself for the third of fifth time.)

To sum up I'm more of a casual fan. The movies are all that I need. Plus some YouTube videos. There's quite a few good ones. But the ones that got me going on this essay are about Force Ghosts. They'll spend from five to fifteen/twenty minutes telling us all about non-cannon Star Wars lore to explain this phenomenon.

In all those hours of videos there are two questions never asked and therefore never answered. Who are the people that become Force Ghosts and who do they appear to? To the best of my knowledge only four people have ever become Force Ghosts: Qui-Gon Jinn, Obi-Wan Kenobi, Yoda, and Anakin. There's a commonality to their appearances. Qui-Gon appeared to Obi-Wan. Then Obi-wan, Yoda, and Anakin appeared to Luke. (Maybe Leia, not too sure. Probably not.) Force Ghosts appear to those that they have a strong attachment to and have a strong attachment to them.

Only took me one title line of eight words to get to my point. Then three paragraphs of about 239 words and an hour's worth of research and typing to not explain my point.

Dragged Kicking and Screaming into Talking About this Yuru Yuri Mistake.

There was a back and forth going on between me and some people about another post. I promised to make a post about how I'm unarguably almost always some of the time right about mistakes in Yuru Yuri and everybody else is unarguably almost always some of the time wrong.


In researching another mistake I found this. Now let me get this straight, Yui, Kyoko, and Ayano have been going the same middle school for over a year and never met Chistose's twin sister Chizuru?

The Ikeda home seams to have changed quit a bit between seasons one and three.

Just hammering home the point.

This is a mistake because at no point in time are we the viewers ever told that Chitose and Chizuru moved to a new place. In fact in this very episode a flash back makes it look like they always lived there.

Spelling suggestions for Chitose and Chizuru: Schistose and Zurich.

More Mistakes in Yuru Yuri.

Sakurako makes a map to her house. Presumably for Chinatsu.

So why does Akari have the map later on? She's been to Sakurako's house before.



On top of that her house is completely different than before.

Now take another look at that map, then look at Sakurako's houses.

Furry Doll Maker: The Foxgirls April and Bonnie.

In what seems my never ending quest to find lost sprite art I come across all sorts of things.
Like the Furry Doll Maker by geN8hedgehog.

    
I finally get to see some of my characters in a form other than sprite. I must admit I have pipe dreamed about getting fan art.
Since I'll never get any, I'll make my own.

Included in that account is the Anime Face Maker.
Toki and Jessica anime style. Wow.

Missed Mistakes in Yuru Yuri.

How did I ever not notice these the first hundred times I watched Yuru Yuri?


In the first screen cap we see that Chitose, Akari, Chinatsu, and Sakurako are wearing old type style school swimsuits. In the amount of time it took to switch cameras they must have ran back to the dressing rooms and changed into new type swim suits.

Did Kyouko take her North Korean Flag wrist band off to dance around? Then put it back on a second later? Why did I miss these so painfully obvious mistakes before? My guess is that I'm reading the subtitles while all this is going on. That's one of the reasons why I prefer dubbed anime. Then again would I want to listen to hours of names being mispronounced? A-kar-ree. Kee-o-ko. Chee-nots. Sa-kur-ra-ko. Hee-ma-war-ree.
