NOTICE: Yumestate Anime is no longer being maintained and thus has been put on Archive mode. Links and functionality are limited.
Hello, I’m Cholisose, and I’ll be writing articles for YumeState. Perhaps I should introduce myself? Some of the things I’ll probably blog about here include anime, manga, light novels, and Japanese video games, so you can look forward to that. I like to bring things up for discussion, so feel free to comment away in every one of my posts–I’ll be sure to respond! And that’s enough about me…
It has definitely been some time since our last post on StudioTim. Why? Well because we moved! Yumestate is the start of our brand new website, including a lot of upgrades that I added in the background. Most of it is stuff you won’t notice, but they really do add up in terms of optimization and performance.
As always, we will continue with blogging at a regular interval. I am currently looking for more authors to contribute content, so if you have any ideas or any thoughts you just want to get out there, feel free to get in contact with me. Leave a comment with your email (and don’t worry it’s not going to get spammed), and I will get in touch with those that are interested.
In the next couple of months, expect lots of updates, uploads, content, etc.
And lastly, I’d like to thank those that waited patiently for Yumestate.com. It’s been a challenge thus far, but we’re going to keep going!
What the—??? Let’s try this again! For some bizarre reason, since I last posted over a week ago, half of my introductory post has disappeared! So, I have no choice but to start over, and this may be a good thing heh heh.
Hello, my name is PhoenixFire! It’s good to meet everyone. I’ll just take everyone on a brief(?) run through of who I am, and what I hope to contribute to this site. ^^
I’ve recently gradutaed from university(HUZZAH)….BUT I do have plans to go back to pursue another degree heh. I like to read, write, draw, read manga, and read more manga. To be honest I haven’t watched much anime for some time(It’s a crime yes yes >_<) but I have started watching again last month and wish to keep it up. I LOVE MANGA <3 <3~~~ I’m currently reading multiple series, and always enjoy reading new series or ones recommended to me. I also enjoy reading about anything related to psychology (since that was my major for university) and enjoy self learning very much. Films and music are also very important to me and past-times that I enjoy! Yosh!
In future posts I hope to do complete reviews on manga that I’ve read. I will also cover on a weekly basis the BIG THREE (no not Kevin Garnett, Ray Allen and Paul Pierce) (or even the new big three…well nevermind this basketball heh): Naruto, Bleach and One Piece! ^__^ Yaaay~~ I’ll also post some of the comics that I’ll be sharing with everyone, random short stories will be published too. Fashion, Music, and Film I’ll also do segments on, asian or otherwise. I really enjoy japanese films, Yasujiro Ozu’s films are amazing and definitely worth checking out.
On an ending note, I’m involved in the postcrossing community and I was contacted a couple week ago from a girl in Russia, who wanted to be message buddies since we both enjoy manga and anime. Waaahhh! It’s times like this when I can’t help but clench both fists and cry out, “Oh the power of fandom!” It’s wonderful that anime and manga has spread worldwide and regardless of where you’re from you can share a common bond. Ahh that can be said about almost anything. Hmm perhaps not adding mayonnaise to every dish though. See you all around!! I leave you with a video from one of my favourite bands, the pillows. Enjoy! ^_^
Simply put, it allows the user to change the layout of the website with a click of a link. If you look below the Top Banner (where Yuki, Misaki and Tenshi-chan are), you will see a small bar that has the appropriate links titled, “Medium Contrast” and “High Contrast”. If you can’t wait for the description, just click them now and try it out. Medium Contrast is set to default when you enter this website for the first time, but with the usage of cookies, and yes you have to enable them if you want to view this site properly, you have to ability to set which contrast you want to be defaulted to the next time you visit.
Have you noticed my “Yokoso!” post? That also uses a cookie. Again if you don’t have them enabled then you’re going to have a lot of problems viewing not this just website, but pretty much all other websites. Anyway, the Yokoso post will disappear the next time you visit this website. If you really don’t want to see it again for another month, just hit “Refresh” (or F5 in Firefox), and it should disappear. If it doesn’t, then that would be my fault and I would ask that you contact me right away so I can fix it! That goes for pretty much everything on this website. If something doesn’t work, make sure you let me know either through comments or by email! I will have an email address setup for anyone wishing to contact me in the next couple of days, so use the comments feature for now.
“How would I describe myself? Three words: hard working, alpha male, jackhammer. Merciless. Insatiable.” – Dwight Schrute from The Office
Although being a “jackhammer” sounds pretty attractive, I would describe myself as someone who is easy-going, patient, and logical. I am satisfied with simple things such as staying at home and enjoying the comfort of sleeping in my own bed every night. That may seem like nothing to most people, but consider that some don’t even have the privilege of living in a house. Some of my hobbies include watching Japanese Animation (anime) and discussing it afterward with other enthusiasts. It’s too difficult to narrow down my specific favourite anime series that I have watched. Instead, it’s easier to associate myself with favourite genres instead. I enjoy a good romantic comedy involving two main protagonists, one female and one male. While naturally in a romance it would make sense if the two protagonists ended together, that doesn’t mean it’s always the case. My second hobby would be playing the piano. I have been taking piano (like every other Chinese kid apparently) for almost 20 years now and still find enjoyment in playing all types of songs. If I had to narrow down a genre of piano music, it would be anything with a strong melody and free-flowing left hand. Some examples would be Reflections on the Water by Debussy, or a self-transcribed version of Chiisa Te No Hira from the anime Clannad.
I guess the last of my three hobbies would be configuring with my laptop. This could mean many things from playing World of Warcraft casually, to coding StudioTim.ca and all associated technical languages (CSS, HTML, PHP), to tinkering with the settings on my favourite wallpaper or photograph recently taken. I use a Dell Studio XPS 15, and no, not that really ugly one that you currently see on their website. I bought a black one that still looks much more stylish than its current version. I simply love all things technical. As I said before, I am someone who thinks logically and processes data and information in a logical way. What does this mean? It means there should always be a method to some madness. In other words, there should be a logical reason behind performing any action.
