Daimajin Kanon 16 released

Go-Buster 25 released

Have you ever noticed that it's not enough to show people in pajamas, they also carry around a pillow with them? When would you ever need to bring your pillow with you somewhere? I was watching an LP of Catherine last week and the naked guy also had a pillow with him. Better bring that pillow, who knows where you'll end up sleeping.

Time for a revival in IRC file trading?

So with the trouble going on with direct downloads, maybe now is a good time to get back to basics and start trading files again over IRC?

I wrote a simplified guide for dealing with IRC here:


If we could get more people hosting fserves, that'd be great. IRC can be really good for community building. You're in a social environment, you can talk to people with similar interests in real time. And the whole concept of serving is based on a give and take system which I find really appealing.

Hikari Saga 2 released

I'm told this comes next in the chronology.

Hikari Saga 2

Trivia: The voice actor for Ultraman Hikari does the monster of the week's voice in Go-Buster this week. So look forward to that.

Server maintenance cancelled

Postponed for another day.

The Tracker has categories now

Your requests have been answered!


The modern day fable continues: Kanon 15 released

Guest star Watanabe Ikkei plays Kanon's dad, Misaki Baroku. His name is a reference to Baroque music. A famous example of this is Pachelbel's Canon.

By the way, if you've seen Keitai Sousakan 7, you probably will recognize this guy.

Everyone loves food

Food comes up, and not everyone can know every Japanese food that's out there. So here's this as a quick dictionary for foods that show up:


Definitely not a complete list, so please continue adding to it as you think of things.


Spoilers on the Wiki?

Seriously who goes to a Wiki not looking to be Spoiled.
The entire point of a Wiki is to have all the info about said shows.

Trying not spoil people on a wiki is kinda retarded.

To answer that well-thought out bit of criticism... We're not trying to not have spoilers on the wiki. Yes, it would be retarded to have no spoilers on a wiki.

What I meant was trying to organize the information so that people didn't unintentionally spoil themselves on content. To use a silly example, someone reading the article on Dr. Jekyll may not know that it turns out that he's Mr. Hyde. As creators of a wiki, it is within our power to organize the information so that major plot reveals aren't just blatantly out there.

Caring about not spoiling someone is simply respecting that person's values. Maybe it's not something that you care about, but this kind of stuff isn't for you? It's important as an adult to respect the values of people besides your own, after all.


Go-Busters 24 released

Wiki Categories and You

Categories are Useful.

So I didn't know much about the Category sections for Wiki until I started working on ours. Apparently the concept is pretty similar to the way our blog posts are tagged. It's just a way of organizing similar topics in the same place.

Used practically, that means if you find a subject you're interested in, you can look at the bottom of the wiki page and find the Categories that it belongs to. Of course, Link hopping always works too.

For example, here's our Fourze category:


You can see all the pages tagged as being part of the Kamen Rider Fourze category here. Generally the code for this would be {{category: Kamen Rider Fourze}} somewhere on the page.

You might notice that the episodes aren't filed alphabetically. That's because those pages are tagged {category: Kamen Rider Fourze|31}}. The 31 can be anything else, but basically that means that page will get filed under 31 instead of whatever that page is named. Since most pages aren't numbers, it seemed like a good policy to implement, that way all the episode numbers are at the front of the category.

This link is in the side bar, but here's a list of our current Categories:


About Spoilers.

By the way, I was looking at this wiki article and liked the way they tagged their spoiler sections:


I'd be okay with just lifting that template and using it to mark spoilers on our wiki.


Go-Buster 23 on the tracker!

Sorry for the delay!
