Sorry for the delay [14 Dec 2008|02:44pm]

I'm finally moved back from Japan, and then suddenly the holidays hit! I managed to finally get the site up to date before the year was up though. Please check it out! http://www.mobuta.com

I've been so busy though that I didn't have time to put together a quiz for this year, so hopefully I'll be able to do something else fun in the coming months.

How exciting to hear that a new Fullmetal Alchemist anime series will be starting! I'm curious as to where they'll start the story from, and if they'll use the same voice cast. Next year will be a good time for FMA fans!

Sorry for the absence of updates lately. Real life took over for awhile, and I've been very busy lately.

I've updated the releases, as well as added the last few FMA chapter titles and updated Arakawa's timeline to include a few new items not related to her works. Please check it out!

I've launched the third site that makes up the collective mobuta.com this week. Celestial Crusaders, the first English Juushin Enbu site, is now online! There's not as much content up right now as I would have liked, but an abundance of it will soon come, so keep checking back!

Lying Update Again! [23 Oct 2007|11:52am]

hoshi_shouri
[ mood | ecstatic ]

I'm still working on that big update, but I needed to get up the new release dates for things, and update the covers and all that.  I've been doing some research on Arakawa lately and have come up with some interesting tidbits.  I managed to track down most, if not all, of the yonkoma she did for Gamest as Edmund Arakawa, so that's exciting.  I also discovered a chapter she did for a series called Tokyo Majin Gakuen Kenpuuchou which started out as a Playstation game.  It's pretty interesting, has something to do with zombies.  But probably the most exciting thing is that I managed to get a hold of a copy of the first installment of Shishi Juushin Enbu!  So I'll update the Other Works page soon with all this new information.  It's already on the Timeline now.  That big big update is coming very soon, I'm finishing up some stuff for it.  So please keep reading!

 lol  I really did intend a big huge update, but I suddenly had a great internet connection from my hotel room in Tokyo this last weekend, but the new site isn't completely done yet so I couldn't post it!  Sorry!!  Got the newest release dates up, and you can check out the rest of this small update here!  Great new site coming soon, I promise!!

Site Status [26 Sep 2007|03:48pm]

hoshi_shouri
[ mood | anxious ]

I know it's been over a month since I updated the site, but it isn't because I don't have content to add, or don't want to. It's because I've been in Japan for a month now and still have no home internet connection and the connection I use at work isn't strong enough to connect to my ftp for some reason. So I have plenty to add, I just am unable to do it at the moment!

In other news, I attended the Tokyo Game Show this past weekend hoping to see a demo of the Juushin Enbu game coming out for the DS in November, but the line around the DS booth (which was closed off like a tent) had to be at least three hours long, so I missed out on it. I did however find cute little cards with the image from the cover of the first tankouban advertising the premiere of the anime. That was exciting. I also saw at the Square-Enix booth a display advertising the ability to download and read manga (including FMA) on your cell phone! I watched a girl using it and it looked very interesting. The word bubbles were animated. I'll post the pictures I took.


The display boxes the cards were in. A nice almost clean image of the art used for this month's GanGan Powered.


The display for the manga on your cell phone.


Close up.

So when I do finally get my internet at my apartment (supposedly this week or next week) there will be a big update, including the addition of a whole new site. I'm pretty excited about it, and hope people are interested in it!

That's all for now, it's time to go home!

Sorry for the lack of updates recently, I'm moving to Japan next Tuesday, so I've been kind of overwhelmed with that! That said, I updated the releases to include the new stuff that just came out (FMA 17, JE 1, New GanGan) as well as the release dates for a Fullmetal Alchemist Instrumental CD featuring instrumental versions of most of the theme songs, and for a Juushin Enbu DS game coming out in October! Lots going on! The TV show debuts in October as well! I just ordered FMA 17 and JE 1 tonight, so as soon as those get here I'll scan the covers up! Later! 

MOBUTA!

Sorry for the lack of posting here.  I have made a couple updates that I just didn't mention here, including one today.  Nothing huge, just a few small updates here and there adding a few things that needed to be added.  I'm working on the world map currently.  I thought I might have it up today, but I've gotten ambitious with it, so it's going to take a little longer than I initially thought.  Have a look around though!  <a href="http://www.mobuta.com">mobuta!!</a>

I updated the New Releases section once again and also updated Arakawa's timeline to include the next coming chapter of Juushin Enbu.

Also, I've posted a poll on the Mobuta Messageboard regarding what rare Arakawa works people would like to see scanslated first. It'll give me an idea of what people want, and I'll get it done quicker, so please go and vote!

Vote In Mobuta Poll!

I updated the releases today, and also added all the english and japanese chapter titles that I could, up to the current chapter in Japan.

Still only one member at the Messageboard! Don't know what to do about that! haha

I've updated the Releases section and added this month's new Shounen GanGan cover. Nice to see Ed on it! The Messageboard is also ready to go, but we only have one member! Come make some conversation people!

Also, what kinds of things would you like to see next? Certain entries to the encyclopedia? Let me know!

Update! [11 Mar 2007|09:34pm]

[ mood | relaxed ]

Just a small one though. I've added the covers for Fullmetal Alchemist Novel 6 and Tankouban Cover 16. I also updated the releases section, adding the release date for Novel 6. Chapter 69 is supposed to come out tomorrow, so I'll update that date and get the new GanGan cover up as soon as possible.

Also, I didn't realize it, but all the forums on the messageboard were set so that only an administrator could post on them, but I've fixed that now.

Message Board Add [09 Mar 2007|04:27pm]

hoshi_shouri
I haven't updated the site yet, but I decided to add a messageboard to promote more discussion. The 'Community' link on the main page will direct you to it. I'll still use this livejournal to post updates, but if you want to get some good conversation going, head on over to mobuta's messageboard!

The mobuta.com Messageboard!

I've just updated the site! Sorry for the long pause between updates, I've been pretty busy with school, and life in general. I was nervous about my recent interview with the JET program, but I think it went okay. We'll see in April though!

I've added a Library to the Alchemist's Almanac. It consists of an Encyclopedia and Interviews for now, but will later be home to differences in the anime and manga, as well as cultural notes about the show. If you can think of any entries you'd like me to add, or comments about the new section in general, please feel free to let me know!

I'm also thinking of using a messageboard instead of the livejournal community, it might promote more conversation. I'd still use this for updates though.

Later!
