Past Updates - Page 1
- Surely, you all must be saying
"Meri, back with an update so soon?! What's the
world coming to?!". And if you're not, well...
maybe you should! That's right kiddie, there's been
a crap-ton more goodies added to the ToT. Let's get
right in to it, shall we?
- First, as promised, here's a brand-new
Music Video! It's a Gohan character profile video
made by me and VegettoEX
and it takes place during the Cell Games. The video
premiered at Anime Weekend Atlanta 2006 this past September.
It was nominated for "Best Character Profile"
and "Best Sentimental" in the Pro contest.
Not only is this video (encoded as XviD) available on
animemusicvideos.org profile, but there's also a
download (compressed in a ZIP file) for those of
you who may not have an account on the .org. So please,
download away, and enjoy!
- Next up, there are 60 new images
added to the Trunks
Screencaps section! Today, we've got images of Chibi
Trunks from DBZ
Movie 13. Now, what makes this special, you ask?
Well, these screencaps were taken
from the anamorphic, widescreen, remastered Japanese
DragonBox DVD release! What this means for you
is crystal clear images that make it look like this
movie was animated yesterday, as opposed to 11 years
ago. O_O Yeah, they're hot. Check 'em out.
- And finally, brining on the real
hottness for today is an update to the Trunks
Doujinshi section! This past weekend at the MangaNEXT
convention, I picked up a Trunks doujinshi I've been
vying for for about, oh, let's say 8 years or so. Now
that I finally got my obsessive hands on it, I've scanned
a few images from the book, and put 'em up on the site.
Hopefully, I can scan even more pics from this soon.
- Alrighty, so it's been a year
since the last content update. And guess what.... here's
a content update! One of several actually.
First up, I've posted a year's-worth
of new Anime
Music Videos. These actually HAVE been available
for download during the past year. I've just not added
them to the ToT. So, if you don't follow animemusicvideos.org,
you may not have seen these videos. If you are interested,
please check them out! These videos are included on
AMV pages on this site.
Some of the animes included in these
AMVs are: Kaleido
no Ippo (if you like DBZ, you will LOVE this series),
Most exciting of all: expect a new
DBZ video made by myself and VegettoEX
to be posted online in the coming days! I'll also be
posting a link to Reflections of Style 3, a multi-editor
AMV project both VegettoEX and I participated in, once
it becomes available online.
And speaking of young Mr. VegettoEX,
perhaps you've heard of Daizenshuu
EX: The Podcast. This is a podcast related to anything
and everything DragonBall. If you've been wondering
what I've been up to the last year, well, that's it.
I've been co-hosting this DBZ podcast with VegettoEX
and Julian of Daizenshuu EX for the past year, and will
continue to do so as long as they are willing to have
me on the show. If you've not checked it out yet, please
give it a listen! It's good (not so clean) fun!
- So, just in case you weren't able
to tell, yesterday's update was (rather obviously) an
April Fools Day gag. :D There is a slight amount of
truth to it, though! This is the 8th year anniversary
of the site, and I will be moving to a new host in the
near future (the URL of this site will remain the same).
AND, I hope to redesign the site at some point in the
very near future.
Wow, I really need to actually update.
I have tons of screencaps I'm sitting on, and lots of
AMVs from late last year that I still need to post on
the site. Whoops!
- Yep, I've been neglecting the
site. My bad. But, no longer! As "that time of
the year" has been winding down (the time of year
when I spend any free time working on music videos for
conventions), hopefully I can start updating a little
Now, for the goods! Lots of music
videos! If you went to Otakon 2005, maybe you saw my
Walk Alone," set to "Boulevard of Broken
Dreams" by Green Day, and featuring angsty men
from several anime... including TRUNKS HIMSELF, YAY!
Anywho, this video won 2nd place in the "Drama
/ Serious" category, and is now up for downloading.
You can read more about this video on the
AMV page on this site, and you can download
it from my amv.org entry page. Enjoy!
SPECIAL NOTE: This video is encoded
as an XviD (DivX-5 compatible) video file (NOT an MPEG-1,
like all my other AMVs). If you do not have this codec
on your computer, you can download
it here. We will not be encoding this video as an
MPEG-1, for consistency reasons. No exceptions.
I also have a new video (OK, so
it's not really new, as I made it months ago) up for
download in the Anime
Music Videos section. It's called "Resilience"
and it uses the anime "Hana Yori Dango" and
the song "The Middle" by Jimmy Eat World.
It's another "tough chick" video.
Additionally, the DBZ
AMV Project, Doomrider, is now available as a full
download on www.animemusicvideos.org! If you weren't
able to get this video back when it was a BitTorrent,
you can sure as shootin' get it now. You can find this
download on the DBZ
Music Videos page here, as well as it's video
entry page on amv.org. Hope ya like it!
- Main page is back to normal, and
moved yesterdays prank over to the ToT
April Fools Archive page.
- Happy April Fools! In the grand
tradition of ToT weirdness, the page you just arrived
from was this site's annual April Fools Day prank. if
you wanna check out previous site gags, go
here. Sorry if you were tricked (or scared?) by
that last page. :P You know I'd never let the site go
all pink and frilly!
- Yes indeed, it's an update! Sorry
it's been two and a half months. Mostly, I've been holding
off on updating until a certain big project was complete.
Well, now it's ready to roll!
- First up, March 2005 marks the
7th Anniversary of the Temple O' Trunks! That's right,
this site's been alive for seven years now. Hard to
believe, huh? Thanks everyone for your continued support!
As long as you keep visiting, the ToT will continue
to bring Trunks goodness!
- Now, the BIG update! The multi-editor
DBZ AMV Project, "Doomrider," is now up on
BitTorrent and is ready for download (you can read more
about the project on our official
Doomrider website! Essentially, this thing is a
10-minute DBZ music video that spans ALL of DBZ. It's
an action-packed, seizure-inducing tribute to the series,
so we hope all you DBZ fans out there like it! Several
editors on this project include old school DBZ site
owners, such as Castor Troy, VegettoEX, and me, Meri!
Talk about a blast from the past! You can read more
about who is on the project on our animemusicvideos.org
entry page. You can download the video (160 MB XviD
file) from our BitTorrent (please help seed the file
when you're done!) here:
The basic info for this video is
also up on the DBZ
Music Videos page on this site.
- Next up, I've got a new, non-DBZ
AMV up for download. It's a sappy character profile/romance
video, and it premiered at Katsucon 2005 a few weeks
ago. It's called "Love
is Another Word for Regret" using the anime
Hana Yori Dango (Boys Over Flowers) and the
song "The Reason" by Hoobastank. Basic info
for this video is up on the Anime
Music Videos page on this site. If you like shoujo
anime, I hope you'll like this video! I also highly
recommend this show. It's the best I've seen in years.
- And lastly, I'll be participating
Destination Studio's Internet radio show tomorrow
night at 10 pm. It's an AMV-related program, and tomorrow's
installment will feature an online version of a music
video editing competition called "Iron Chef."
will be a judge for the contest. That said, we'll both
be interviewed during the show (since we live together,
it kinda makes logical sense that we both participate.
:P). Sooo, if you wanna hear some wacky antics, fire
up your WinAmp tomorrow night, plug in this
URL in WinAmp around 10 and listen in! The directions
on how to listen to the show can be found on RDS'
- Lots of Trunks screencaps from
DBGT and DBZ to come soon! And now, the plug of the
moment: Fanfic site Chikyuujin
Chronicles! Hehe, Sean is just like me and is having
months pass in between updates. :D
- Better late than never (and thanks
to those who reminded me), I've finally posted the annual
page of ToT's
DBZ Winter Holiday Stuff, containing holiday-realted
DBZ songs, fanarts, and fanfics. I hope you enjoy it!
I gotta catch a train in a little bit for my X-Mas break,
so I'm outta here! Happy holidays, everyone!
- My god, can you believe I actually
wanted to update this weekend?! Yeah, it happens sometimes.
Rather than direct my interests to Mirai Trunks from
the DBZ universe, I've decided to switch things up a
bit and focus on GT Trunks for a little bit. That said,
here's an actual content in the form of brand new Trunks
Screencaps of GT
Trunks! So far, I've got some images of him from
theme ("Dan Dan Kokoro Hikarete 'ku")
and his first appearance in episode
2. Expect to see a lot more GT Trunks screencaps
For old school fans of this site,
you may remember that GT Trunks screencaps were some
of the first screencaps I had back on this site back
in 1998 or so. Going back and making screencaps from
the domestically-released DVDs has been quite a trip
down memory lane for me, so I quite enjoyed making this
update. I hope you will, too! I'll return to making
Mirai Trunks screencaps from the Cell era soon.
- Hey kids! It's that time of year
again! Come one, come all, it's Crazy's Meri's Discount
Crappy Crap-Crapopalloza! You can find lots o' anime,
X-Men, and some Buffy junk that I'm selling on eBay
(52 items, to be exact)! Got some nice cheap DVDs (good
for AMV source footage), some REALLY fudging HOT One
Piece items (sexy Sanji, Zoro, Nami, and Robin posters
and pencil boards), my beloved Trunks DBZ posters (sniff
sniff), and some WEIRD stuff (a PC CD-ROM Sailor Moon
game from 1997, and an X-Men "Pryde of the X-Men"
animation graphic novel). You gotta see it to believe
it! Buy today! Also be sure to check out VegettoEX's
super-spiffy batch of eBay stuff!
Don't worry, a real update is forthcoming.
:P Budokai 3 tomorrow, yay!
- This is more of a shameless plug
than anything else, but to those of you who are interested,
the entire all-new DDR4: 5th Mix AMV Project is now
available for download via BitTorrent at http://torrent.otakuvideo.com/.
Get it while it's hot!
- Sorry about the delay in the update.
I got home later than I thought last night from the
con. AWA itself was the awesomeness, as I got to see
friends, made some new ones, and watched a whooole lot
of music videos! VegettoEX and I also got to meet Castor
Troy after all these years, so that was cool, too.
Anywho, on with the goods! I've
got two new music videos up for download! The first
one... my first Dragonball video EVAR, and my first
DB-related video in a year! It's mine and VegettoEX's
entry for this year's "DDR Project 4: 5th Mix"
project, and it uses the song "Theme
from 'Enter the Dragon'." This video was made
using Adobe Premiere, After Effects, and Photoshop.
That said, it's our most technical video yet! It's a
crazy fun action video using footage from the 23rd Tenkai-ichi
Budokai from Dragonball. We really liked how it turned
out, and we hope you'll enjoy it to! You can view the
entry for "Enter
the Dragon" on my DBZ Music Videos page, or
download it directly from my animemusicvideos.org
profile entry. Hope you enjoy it!
Next up, is a video we actually
won an award for at the con! This Shoujo Kakumei Utena
video took home the AWA Pro Contest award for "Best
Angst" video (best title ever!), so we're really
proud of that (oh yeah, VegettoEX and I made this video
together, too). It's called "Sex,
Lies, and Roses" and it is indeed angsty. If
you're a fan of Utena, then I hope you'll check out
this video. Again, you can download this video from
profile, or on the Anime
Music Videos page here on the site.
I'd love to hear any feedback you
may have on any of these two new videos. Feel free to
email me, or reply in our video announcement thread
- I fully intended to make a content
update to the site this weekend, but I never got around
to it, so I apologize. Instead, I bring you a cheap
announcement that requires little effort on my part.
is coming up this week, and as usual, I sent a music
video to the music video contest. Much to my surprise,
my video actually made the cut, and will be played in
the "Romance/Sentimental" category in the
main Otakon AMV contest! For all those going to Otakon,
I hope you'll stop by the contest to check it out. As
a teaser, here's a screencap from my video, "Memory."
video will be up for download as soon as I get back
from Otakon a week from today! Also, my significant
other, Mike "VegettoEX" LaBrie of Daizenshuu
EX, also made it into the Otakon AMV contest...
with a DBZ music video! SHOCK! Please show your support
and please check out our vids if you're at the con.
Feel free to stop and sat hi if you see us.
- I've got a pretty hot batch of
Screencaps up for you today. There are 35 new images
episode 149, a kick-ass episode filled with well-drawn
action AND character development, as we see another
Trunks flashback to his past from the future! Check
it out. They are quality!
- I'm gonna be pretty busy with
new Trunks screencaps in the coming month. The first
DBGT episodes (the REAL first episodes, labelled as
the "Lost Episodes" here with its domestic
release) will be coming out on DVD next week. Since
I (oddly enough) really enjoy the early DBGT stuff,
I'll be getting this disc. This means you can see some
wacky GT Trunks screencaps next Tuesday or Wednesday,
yay! Also, DBZ movie 9 (one of my two fave DBZ movies,
next to movie 13) will be coming out soon, so they'll
be plenty o' sexay screencaps when I get that DVD. Sadly,
it's the last movie Mirai Trunks appears in, so I'm
gonna go all out and take tons of images from that movie.
:D Stay tuned!
- Well, the AnimeNEXT
anime convention was an absolute blast~! Our Dragonball
panel went well, and I had a wacky good time rooming
with Mike "VegettoEX" LaBrie and Julian of
EX, and Maggie of Lovely
Cyborg. For some wacky photos of us from the con,
please check out the goods on Maggie's site right
Anyway, on with the update. I've
added a whopping 37 images of Ultra Saiyajin Trunks
episode 148 to the Trunks
Screencaps section. If I just keep going, I'll get
to that kick-ass flashback episode!
- The following update is more like
a quick announcement than anything else. This weekend
in Secaucus, NJ is the 3rd AnimeNEXT
anime convention. Myself, Mike "VegettoEX"
LaBrie and Julian of Daizenshuu
EX, and Maggie of Lovely
Cyborg will be running a pannel called "DragonBall:
20 Years of Fandom." If you're going to this
con, we'd love to see you at our panel! We have some
fun things planned, so please stop by. Mike and I are
also running the "Anime Music Videos"
panel, in addition to running the anime music video
contest. So, if you see two crazy busy people looking
stressed out and runnin around in the con, that would
be us. Hope to see you there!
- This is the most exciting update
the ToT has seen in quite some time! Remember those
old crappy Trunks screencaps I took from a VHS fansubs
of the DBZ Playdia game? Well, say goodbye to those,
and say hello to hot new DVD-ripped screencaps taken
from the Japanese DVD boxset, the Dragon Box (specifically,
the second set)! All thanks goes to Hujio for taking
the time out to rip these images for the ToT! That's
right, the images on the Trunks
from the Playdia Game page (in the Trunks
Screencaps section) have been completely replaced
with 40 DVD-quality images. You'll be sure to drool
all over yourself!
- Hopefully everyone out there is
having a great Memorial Day 3-day weekend! It's pouring
here, so I didn't get to do much of anything. Thankfully,
the time off gave me time to make a site update! You
can find 14 new Trunks
Screencaps of long-haired Mirai Trunks from episode
147. We'll get to the real action-y episodes shortly!
- There are also two new odd Trunks
products up in the Operators
Are Standing By section. One of these products I
now own (being the magnet) thanks to my friend Ginny
and I a house-warming present. Thankies!
- I apologize for the lack of updates
in the last month. I've been pretty busy with moving
out of my house into a new apartment with Mike,
so things have been pretty hectic. But, we're now pretty
settled, and I intend to make updates fairly regularly
again! Let's start now, shall we? I've completely re-made
Video Game Images page. There are now a total of
27 images spanning four Playstation (1 and 2) games:
Ultimate Battle 22, DBZ Legends, Final Bout, and Budokai
2. These new images are a helluva lot better looking
than the old images that were there, so I hope you'll
(missing a bunch of archived updates.
- Oh my god, I made an update that's
not screencap-related! For the first time in months,
I've updated the Fanart
section! There, you can find 16 new images on Page
4. I've been sitting on a bunch for months (and
probably lots tons in my email, too), so I figured maybe
I should update that area. :P Hope you like them!
- Holy cheese, would you believe
it, it's a *gasp* Trunks
Screencaps update! This time, you can find 18 images
of long-haired Future Trunks from episode
144. Enjoy! Also, check
out my leftover eBay auctions for my anime items
that didn't sell.
- It's that time of the month again!
No, not THAT time. It's the time when I clean out my
room and find lots of anime
stuf to sell on eBay! This time around, I'm getting
rid of a lot of rare Trunks and DBZ items (such as a
patch, and a Trunks
wall clock), as well as other anime goods. It's
hard parting with these things, but I need to make my
move to a new place as easy as possible by getting rid
of stuff. Please
check out my auctions!
- Surprise, surprise, it's yet another
Screencaps update! Stupidly, I managed to completely
forget an episode with short-haired Mirai Trunks in
it. So, I went back and took 20 screencaps from the
episode when Trunks and Krillin blow up Dr. Gero's lab,
130. Next time, I'll get back to long-haired Trunks
screencaps. :) Sorry for the lack of varying updates,
but I really love making screecaps!
- Greetings, all! I hope you're
having a great weekend! I've been pretty busy lately
doing work on the X-Men: Evolution site, "Beyond
Evolution." Check it out, because that site
is the hotness. Anyway, on to more Trunks related things!
I have posted 38 new images in the Trunks
Screencaps section. The images include shots of
long-haired Mirai Trunks from episode
141 and episodes
142-143. Lots of neat pics here, so I hope you like
- I call this update "Progess"!
In the Trunks
Screencaps section, I've added 24 images of long-haired
Mirai Trunks from episodes 138-140. Finally, I'm
moving on to his different hairstyle! Expect more images
from this part of the series in the coming weeks. I've
also slightly revamped the Screencaps page, added a
short description for each episode so you can read what
Trunks actually *does* in that episode. Enjoy!
- Hope everyone is off to a great
2004 thus far! After much chillin' and relaxing, I think
I'm ready to get back to the real world. But before
I do, I had to do a lot of cleaning up around my place
in preparation for moving to an apartment in the coming
months. I found lots of anime goods I'd be willing to
part with, and desperately need to get off my hands
before I move. So, feel free to check out lots
of cheap anime stuff I'm selling on eBay! I'd appreciate
- As for site stuff I'm working
on, I'm currently in the process of over-hauling the
look of my Music Video sections...
- Good lord, it's an update! A mere
week after the last one, no less! Wow, makes me wonder
how I used to do an update per day 5 years ago. O_o
Anywho, in keeping with a fun ToT tradition that's been
going on for the past few years, I've posted the collection
Winter Holiday Stuff! You can find fun songs, poems,
fanfics, and fanart on this page. So, feel free to celebrate
the holidays a little early with these cute DBZ items.
- I deeply apologize for the severe
lack of updates. I've been busy with many projects over
the last two months, some of which I'll share with you
- First up, I've been working on
a new website, based on the anime One Piece.
While I haven't officially opened it yet, the site is
complete enough that I can give you all a sneak preview!
Check it out, the One Piece media site, Going
Meri with One Piece (stupid name, I know)!
- Next, I've finished up my track
for the massive Dragonball Z Anime Music Video Project,
Doomrider. Expect to see the complete, 9-minute
project to debute this December (we hope!).
- I've also become a staff member
on the X-Men Evolution website, Beyond
Evolution. I'm in charge of the image gallery, and
other assorted fun items.
- Finally, just in time for the
holidays, I'm selling
a lot of my old anime stuff on eBay at stupidly low
prices. If there's a series or manga you wanna check
out, you can buy some manga and anime from me for cheap.
You can grab lots of DBZ stuff, including some Doujinshi
and cards featured on this site. Be a pal and check
out what I have to offer!
- Updates coming soon, I swear!:
fanart and screencaps, and the annual ToT Holiday Goodies!
- I hope you're in the mood to download,
cuz I've got a massive media update for the day that
includes two new Anime
Music Videos and one new (GASP!) DBZ
This past weekend was the Anime
Weekend Atlanta 9 (AWA) convention. For some weird reason,
the judges and fellow AMV creators decided to give VegettoEX
and I two music video awards, one for "Obligatory
EVA Trailer," which won Grand Prize in the
Expo contest, and the other award went to one of our
new videos, which is now available for download.
You must have an account on AnimeMusicVideos.org
to be able to download these videos. If you already
have an account, then please, download away! If you
sign up as a member for free! It's so worth it.
The only catch is that you have to wait two weeks before
you can download any videos. This is to prevent spamming
and killing the servers. Downloading videos off the
site is also free, but they also accept donations to
keep the site running. Anyway, on with the videos.
First up is a Kimagure Orange Road
video called "Let
Me Save You." This video won Best Romance in
the Pro music video contest. VegettoEX
and I had a lot of fun making this video, so I hope
you'll check it out!
Also making its debut at the AWA
convention was the new Dance
Dance Revolution 3 Music Video Project. The video
I made for this massive multi-editor project is now
available to download. It's called "Walkie
Talkie" using the anime Kodomo no Omocha (Child's
Toy) or "Kodocha" for short. This is one of
my favorite videos I've ever made. It's a crazy dance
video, so hopefully you'll find it amusing. :P
You can find the above two videos
on the Anime
Music Videos page of the ToT.
Finally, I've posted up my first
DBZ music video in two years! Whoa! Check out "The
Slugfest Can Can - Version 2," a re-make of
a video I did in 2001. This video sports insanely higher
quality (I used ripped DVDs for this video rather than
captured VHS footage), tighter editing, and new scenes.
I hope you like it. You can find this video in the DBZ
Music Videos section of the ToT.
On top of that, I'll have a new
DBZ video, which is part of a larger multi-editor music
video project, coming out in October, so stay tuned
for that. It's gonna be crazy.
- I hate to bump my last screencaps
update (images from episodes
126-129), but I will anyway! I have posted a bunch
of new Trunks
Screencaps that are simply the shiznit. Behold,
images of Trunks ripped from the DBZ movie 8 DVD
(called "Broly: The Legendary Super Saiyan"
in the domestic release). These are some SUPER high-quality
images right here, and I hope you'll enjoy them. I only
get to make movie screencaps so often, you know. :P
In the old version of the ToT, I
used to have screencaps from the DBZ movies, but they
were taken from my fansubs. Well, now that the DVDs
for the later movies are finally starting to come out,
I'm obviously having fun with screencaps. For shits
and giggles, here's
a little comparison image I made of an old screencap
I took from my fansubs and one of the new ones. God,
aren't DVDs wonderful!? :D
- Finally, here's the update I've
been dying to make! In the Trunks
Screencaps section, you can find 30 new images of
Trunks from episodes 126-129. All I have left to
do is episode 130 (Trunks and Krillin go to Dr. Gero's
lab), and I can FINALLY start the images you've all
been dying for, long-haird Mirai Trunks. In addition,
I should be getting my DBZ movie 8 DVD this week, so
expect a crapload of screencaps from that movie, too!
- Wow, Otakon friggin' owned this
year. I didn't really do much at the con (mostly music
video stuff), but I still had a good time! Since the
con is now over, I'm ready to post my two new Anime
Music Videos. First up is my Fushigi Yuugi
video called "Deceptive
Passions". This video won second place in the
Romance / Sentimental category (which floored me! I
wasn't expecting that). It's one of my favorite videos
I've made, so I really hope you'll check it out.
If you have a membership on AnimeMusicVideos.org,
please download the video off the info page for "Deceptive
Passions" (recommended method). If you don't,
you can download
the video here.
The second video is a collaborative
trailer made by VegettoEX and myself using Neon
Genesis Evangelion called "Obligatory
EVA Trailer." This video won best Short Film
/ Trailer at PortConMaine 2003 in June. It's a stupid
little parody trailer, and I don't like it as much as
"The Professional" trailer, but this video
got a great response at the convention, and Mike and
I were happy. :)
If you have a membership on AnimeMusicVideos.org,
please download the video off the info page for "Obligatory
EVA Trailer" (recommended method). If you don't,
you can download
the video here.
Also, please check out VegettoEX's
drama video "What
it is to Burn" to Grave of the FirefliesIt
didn't make the Otakon contest, but it's still a very
good video, and probably his best one yet! You can find
it on Daizenshuu
Please check out our videos! We
hope you like them, as these are some of our strongest
works yet. We'd love to hear what you think of them.
:) Stay tuned for a *gasp* DBZ music video from me,
coming soon (in addition to more music videos debuting
- Sorry for the lack of updates
again ;_;. Trust me, I have a lot of things waiting
in the wings. I just have to get off my ass and make
them, you'll see! In the meantime, I have an odd little
update for you today. In the Special
Features section (located in Misc.),
you'll find a weird 11 MB sound file (WAV format) of
a random guy calling in to a radio station claiming
to have met a time traveller named Trunks. It truly
must be heard to be believed. Thanks to Daitsuui for
- As you may know, Otakon,
the biggest anime convention on the East coast, is coming
soon (August 8-10). As you also may know, I like to
make music videos. So, as I typically do, I sent in
a video this year for the music video contest. Well,
a list of the finalists of those who will be in the
Otakon Anime Music Video Contest has been released,
and it seems as though my video made the cut! For the
first time ever, a music video of mine will be played
at the main contest at Otakon (which is really really
cool, since *185* video submissions were sent in this
year, and only 31 made the final cut).
If you're gonna be going to the
con, please check it out, I'll need all the support
I can get! Feel free to cheer.... or something. My music
video will be in the first category (Romance / Sentimental),
and it's called "Deceptive Passions." The
anime is "Fushigi Yuugi," and the song is
called "Pretty Girl (The Way)" by Sugarcult.
You should check out the contest this year, cuz they
are a LOT of kick ass submissions this year, from what
I've seen (especially in the Comedy category). Based
on the preliminary
schedule of events Otakon has put online, it looks
like the main music video contest will be Friday night,
11 PM - 1 AM, right after the MAT3K, in the main events
room. If you can't make it then, the contest will replay
at another time in a smaller video room. I hope you
can make it! It'll be fun.
Anyway, I'll be putting the video
online for download immediately after Otakon, so stay
tuned! Who knows, maybe I'll even put a short preview
of it up in the coming days. :) VegettoEX
and I will also be handing out CDs of all our new music
videos, so if you see us, feel free to stop by and pick
up a free CD!
- Here's a small update for you
lovely fans. First up, 6 new Fanarts
have been added to Page
- Also, there are a couple of new
that should definitely be checked out.
- PLUG TIME! Daizenshuu
EX is holding a huge Dragonball trivia night tonight
at 8:00 PM (EDT) in the site's chat
room, #daizenshuu. Last week was the first time
the trivia night was held and it turned out to be a
great success. We wanna see more people in there, so
if anyone out there is interested, check it out tonight.
I might even be there, too! (OK, so I *will* be there...
so much for being subtle).
- Gosh, it's been a long time since
I've updated. Sorry about that! I've been busy with
my DDR track, and other music videos lately. But, now
that I'm in between projects, here's an update for ya!
I've completely re-made the Trunks
Screencaps from episode
125. There are now 50 images from this episode.
I re-did them because the old images from this episode
were actual screen captures, rather than DVD-ripped
images, like all the episodes are. So, enjoy the better
- Yeeeehaw, actual content today,
baby! Hope you guys enjoy the stuff! First, there are
two wacky products now listed in the Operators
Are Standing By section. These include things you
wear, and things you eat with O_o.
- 10 fabulous pieces of work are
up on Page
4 of the Fan
Art section. Take a look, there's some great things
this time around!
- Ugh, I hate hate HATE these kinds
of updates. They're the kind when the web masters says
"I'm not dead, I'm still around, don't worry!"
type of thing, without providing an actual content update
for the loving fans. Well, this is one of 'em. Sorry!
As I've stated in previous posts, I've been busy with
graduation, making my Otakon music video submission
(which is finally done, whee), and now work.
However, this combination of events
has several benefits! With my Otakon video now made,
I have enough hard drive space to go back to ripping
DBZ DVDs for making Trunks screencaps! I was on a roll
before, and I intend to get back on it. I also want
to make a fan art update soon. It's just a matter of
time. In addition, with college over, and me dying to
clear up some space, I plan on selling a bunch of my
anime stuff, so expect a big eBay shop-o-rama of Meri
junk in the coming weeks. Guess that's about it for
things to come.
Also, if you're one of the people
that signed up with an account on AnimeMusicVideos.Org
a few weeks ago, and couldn't download my Music
Videos, you should now be able to do so. I think
there's a 2-week limitation for new members, in which
you can't download videos for that time period. Well,
it's been at least 2 weeks since my last update, so
if you got an account then, you should now be able to
download all my music videos. Remember, you can find
them all on my member profile, "MeriC".
And to download a video, scroll down to "Downloads"
section at the bottom of each information page for each
individual video and click on the green link labeled
"LOCAL." Then wait a few seconds, and it'll
has set up an fserve in his chat room for Daizenshuu
where you can download our videos, as well as the fan
parody "This is Otakudom." Check it out! That's
all I have for now, but expect a real update next time.
- Well, the end is finally here.
I only have one exam left, and in 10 days, I graduate
college! Time to venture off into the real world! scary
stuff. This is so weird... I started this site in high
school, and I figured I'd stop working on it by the
time I hit college. Now I'm *done* with college, and
I'm still working on this thing. Old habits die hard.
Here's hoping I can continue working on this site in
the years to come. OK, enough of this sentimental crap,
and on with the updates!
- First up, a new language has been
added to Trunks
Around The World! Now, you can hear Trunks sound
all manly in Italian,
yahoo! This section has gotten so huge (56 sounds so
far) that I've redesigned it so that each language is
on it's own page. Hope this is now easier to go through!
- 10 new images have been posted
4 of the Fan
Art section. Enjoy!
- Thanks to fellow anime
music video maker and ToT fan SQ,
a nifty and dirty sounding WAV file has been posted
Sexuality of Trunks. it's basically a mixing of
a bunch of really eeeevil sounding Trunks quotes. If
enough of these get made, it may become it's own section!
- Must see X2 again... love my merry
mutants! Must see Matrix Reloaded. AHH! Much money spent
in movie theaters!
- Today, I've got 13 new Fan
arts added to page
4 of the Fan Art section. Sorry for the small update,
but this is all I can manage this weekend. What with
and Surf Fest this weekend, finals, and graduation
coming up, I'm glad I can do this much. :) However,
I plan on working on... a brand new site! Expect to
see it in the coming months.
- I'm at a loss for writing any
witty banter for this update. So howsabout I just hop
right to it? Today, I've got a new Anime
Music Video for you all! It's a fun comedy video,
and is in fact a remake of my Cowboy Bebop from 2001,
Girls Are Crazy - 2003 Remake"! This version
now sports better timing, video quality, lip synching,
and cheesy special effects (err... mostly Photoshop
work, but whatever). I hope you'll take the time out
to view this video. I'm quite pleased with the result.
You can read the full
description of the video here.
- Crunch time for me in school is
quickly approaching. Despite the fact I'm *this* close
to getting my degree, I still have tons of b.s. school
work to do. And in typical Meri tradition, I avoid this
work by doing ToT stuff instead. :) The big update of
the day is 50 new images up in the Trunks
Screencaps section. These new 'caps are from a very
important episode (episode
124, in fact), in which Trunks has a flashback to
his past/future, and "Ki - Mind Power" plays
in the background. Check
- With the re-opening of ToT Fan
Art, I'm pleased to announce that there are 7 *gorgeous*
Arts posted on Page
4. Give them a looksie, they're awesome!
- I've added a Trunks patch I managed
to find to the Operators
Are Standing By page.
- After much searching and scraping
around for old images, I finally managed to put the
Art section back on the site! Huzzah! A few of the
images have been lost over the years, but there are
315 fan arts to look at, regardless. :) I know a few
people have been asking about the return of this section,
so now it's back up, hopefully just the way you remember
it. That said, I'm now open to receiving fan art submissions.
Rules are on the main Fan
Art page, and this has been added to the FAQ
Questions." Have fun! Quick shout out to Kim
and Danielle, you guys were great in Gypsy the other
day! I might even make that Feature Film as you suggested,
- Got a quickie update for y'all
today, with 39 new images posted in the Trunks
Screencaps section. Today's screencaps cover Trunks'
appearances in episodes
Whatta fast update! But, hopefully you'll find a pic
you like (especially the funny ones in ep. 123, heh).
- Got the ToT back up to normal
after yesterday's silly April Fool's trick. In case
you missed it, or are just interested, I have moved
O' Zoro!" permanently on the site, and can
be found in ToT
April Fool's Day Archive.
- Believe it or not, even MORE images
(36, to be exact) have been added to Trunks
Screencaps, this time from episodes
118, 119, and 120. God, I am friggin' insane. Still,
I'm that much closer to making DVD screencaps of long-haired
Mirai Trunks. :D
- In case you didn't realize the
date, today's April 1st, April Fools Day! Hence, the
"Temple O' Zoro" main page gag. So, what's
the reasoning behind it, you ask? Well, I'm currently
way into the anime "One Piece" at the moment,
and I think the resident swordsman of that series, Zoro,
is wicked spiffy. Then it occured to me "hey, a
swordsman in a series that FUNi's eventually going to
put out? The coincidences are uncanny! Ah, time to make
a fake 'cashing-in' site!" So that's the joke!
But is it? Who knows, maybe I really WILL make a "Temple
O' Zoro" some day. :)
So in the spirit of the day, I've
decided to make a new section in the Misc.
area called ToT
April Fool's Day Archive featuring all my old site
gags over the years. Check it out!
Lesson of the day: beware of DBZ
site tricks today! And have fun!
- Wow, I just can't get enough of
making images! Well, when it's all for a goal, I tend
to go a little nuts. My project to replace all the ToT's
old VHS-made screencaps with DVD-ripped, high quality
ones is going very well. Today, I've taken 53 Trunks
Screencaps of Mirai
Trunks from episode 116 and episode
117. Soon enough, I'll be at long-haired Mirai Trunks!
Just 7 more episodes to go till I get there... Enjoy!
- Greetings, salutations, and happy
Friday! I'm gonna kick off this weekend with a buttload
of eye-popping (OK, not really) new Trunks content!
First and most important, I've added 63 new Trunks
Screencaps of Mirai
Trunks from episode 107. As I've said before, these
are DVD-ripped screenies, so they look like the hotness!
Enjoy! Next screencaps to come: the return of Mirai
- Next update is a quick addition
to the Weird
Trunks Products: Operators are Standing By section.
Items included are sleazy bootleg products and a cute
- Some new recordings have been
added in DBZ
- Finally, I did a bit of work in
sections. Some new
ones have been added, so please check out these quality
- Don't forget to check out my new
Music Video, "Sweet
Soul Brother" to the show Kare Kano!
- Ahh, back to school am I. Sadness
ensues! Over spring break, I completed 3 new music videos.
One of them is a remake of one from 2001, which will
be posted soon. The next is a secret project that won't
debut 'till summer. The third, I'm posting today! It's
a short video that's a part of the "Jet
Set Radio" Anime Music Video Project. In this
project, the soundtrack from the video games "Jet
Set Radio" and "Jet Set Radio Future"
were used, and each AMV creator recieved his or her
own track to make a music video. So, my track is a fun
video called "Sweet
Soul Brother" using the anime "Kareshi
Kanojo no Jijyo" (Kare Kano) aka: "His and
Her Circumstances." For the ladies, it's filled
with cute boy goodness. Wow, what a departure from all
my recent music videos. :) You can download the new
music video on the Anime
Music Videos page. To view the full description
for this video, please
click here. Hope you enjoy it! You can download
the full "Jet Set Radio" project from this
site. Oh yeah, and VegettoEX
had a track on this project as well. ^_^
- Yeah, I be on Spring Break starting
now! I must say, it's muchly needed. My last semester
of college is proving to be quite a doozy, but 's all
good. I still manage to find time to do site stuff,
heh (actually, I work on the site, when I'm putting
off other would I *should* be doing, but you didn't
hear me say that). Today, I've got 46 new Trunks
Screencaps for ya, this time from episode
106. Hope you like 'em! Don't forget all the goodies
from my last update, as well! Oh yeah, I also modified
the look of the main page navigation slightly based
on having used the layout in action for a few days.
The menu is now in the middle of the table, and the
sub-navigation menu now pops up on the side. There is
also a little tab on the bottom of the table for helpful
info links, such as the FAQ, Site Map, and Contact info.
- Ah, my first major content on
the new server! How exciting! Let me tell you, this
update is quite a doozy. I've made enough stuff
to make one's head spin! Hope you have fun looking at
- The main update of the day is
114 new Trunks
Screencaps! Yes, the section is back online! As
you can see, it's not as big as the screencaps section
on the former site (401 now compared to 700+ before).
This is because I have started this section from scratch.
I deleted all my old crappy fansub and VHS screencaps
(with the expection of "Trunks from the Playdia
Game," since those are rare), and I have begun
replacing them ALL (and them some!) with DVD ripped/captured
images. Dat's right, nothing but the best for you Trunks
fans out there! The more high quality eye-candy, the
better. So, what's new, you ask? Well, the DVD for the
last episodes of Dragonball Z came out today. This disc
features the last appearance of Chibi Trunks, and the
first appearance of Teenage Chibi Trunks (wow, ain't
that a contradiction in terms). Anywho, that said, I
simply had to buy the DVD the day it came out (being
yesterday). As a result, a butt-load of new DVD-ripped
Screencaps are now up! You can find some of Chibi
Trunks (episode 273), and of Teenage
Chibi Trunks (episodes 274, 275,
In addition, starting from the very beginning, I have
put up DVD screencaps of Mirai
Trunks' first appearance (episodes 104 and 105).
From this point on, I will be going in order of episode
numbers and replacing all the Trunks Screencaps with
DVD-version images. That's the big project I've got
set up for myself.
- And speaking of the new DBZ DVD
that came out today (Kid Buu - "A New Beginning"),
there was an interesting ad in the Extras portion of
the DVD. It featured a little preview for DBGT, coming
out in April. And I must say, it's pretty silly, and
downright insulting to old fans. I've encoded a small
MPEG file of the ad, as well as scanned pics of the
DVD's crappy insert. You can find them all hosted on
- But wait, I'm not done! Got more
ToT content up for viewing! Trunks
Doujinshi has at least a dozen new images added
in the Misc.
Trunks Doujinshi page. Whoa, more Trunks pics today!?
- On the information
front, the Trunks
Episode Guide has been updated to contain the FUNimation
episode numbers, in addition to the old Japanese episode
- In the Humor
section, I've updated Rejected
DBZ Movie Titles to reflect the new titles for the
FUNi releases of movies 4-7. Most of the Japanese titles
have also been corrected.
- Greetings, and welcome to the
all-new Temple O' Trunks at it's own kick-ass domain
name, www.templeotrunks.com! Since March 2003 marks
the 5-year anniversary of the ToT, I wanted to do something
special by completely redesigning the site, as you can
see. The site's also now at it's own easy-to-remember
URL, so that's pretty special. I hope you'll enjoy the
ride, now that you're here!
So, what's different about the site
now, do you ask? Well, first of all, some old goodies
are now back. For example, the English
Trunks Sounds are now ALL back up. In
addition, nearly all dead links have been removed, giving
you a more satisfying romp through the site. Furthermore,
all old items that used to be on the main page have
now been moved in to the all new Misc.
section. And, most obviously, the site is now easier
to navigate (I hope)! If you get lost, please check
However, just because the Tot is
all new and spiffy doesn't mean I'm done. Alas, this
move is taking place during an insanely busy time during
my life. I have lots of school work and music video
work to do while I'm working on the site. As
a result, a few sections of the Tot are not up yet,
but will be in the coming weeks. Trunks Screencaps,
Trunks Wallpapers and Fan Art are still under construction.
Fortunately, I hope to have them all back up very soon.
But fear not! I have some mad crazy
fun stuff planned for the future of the Tot, in addition
to putting up the aforementioned sections. I plan on
making tons of new content and sections, so stay tuned.
Also, the Trunks Screencaps section will get a total
overhaul, featuring nothing but DVD-ripped images (hence
it being down right now, since I'm still working on
it). Don't miss out on all the goodness!
As the leading site on Trunks on
the web, I welcome you to the site! I hope you find
stuff here to keep you busy and put a smile on your
face. I'd like to say thanks to Daizenshuu
EX and Toriyama
World for all of your help through the site move.
