Past Updates - Page 3
- It's a grab-bag of goodies here at the ToT on
this joyous Friday (it's joyous in that a big party
in which many a-teenager will be running around will
be thrown at my humble abode today, and that means wonderful
photo opportunities for me. Blackmail!).
First, the Fan Manga
page has been updated with a new artist, and some fixed
- There are two new stories on Page
2 of Trunks
- Operators Are
Standing By has had a new product added
to it. Sorry about the broken images. I
guess I lost them in the server move.
- The Chat
is working again. Oh yeah, I also moved the most
recent Feature Film,
"DBZ Sells Out",
to this server, instead of having it on my school space.
- Ah, what a lovely, hot summer day. 'Tis
perfect for swimming and stealing corn. Before
I go off to do such things, here is a little update
for your pleasure.
- The Sexuality
of Trunks has been made increasingly uh....sexy?
Some of the new quotes are quite obvious, while others
are a bit of a stretch, however, once you think about
them in a perverted context, they can be funny.
Enjoy, you sick little monsters!
- The Random
DBZ Fill in the Blank Contest has a new
winner, as well as a new sentence to be mutilated.
- And now, the ToTs "Sites-With-New-URLs"
Update! Three excellent sites, Dragonball
and GotenMYz DFW
have all relocated to new hosts.
- Muwahaha! Finally! After many uploading
problems, I finally managed to get this baby up on the
server. MAJOR thanks go out to USSJTrunks for
encoding the original 56 MB MPEG file to a 10 MB DivX
file. Oh, which reminds me...if you want to download
this music video, you'll need to have a DivX codec,
which you can download from here.
I hope to have a RealVideo file, or a decent sized MPEG
version of the video up someday. So, without furhter
delay, here it is: the *final* version of my Otakon
Music Video Contest entry,
"Again" (Fushigi Yuugi Music Video),
which can be found in the Non-DBZ Music Videos section.
I'm extremely pleased with the finished version
(which has changed quite a bit from the "Final
web version.") Enjoy! Oh yeah, and
don't forget to check out the DBZ
As X-Men: The Movie trailer from yesterday.
- The FAQ
Me page were in desperate need of
an update, so..I updated them. I basically just
added on to the lists of "animes I've seen",
and updated and added questions to the FAQ.
- I think today's update is a good indication
that I have lost my mind. ^_^ A few days ago, Mike of
EX showed me an MPEG someone had made of
Evangelion clips set to audio from a Star Wars movie
trailer. We thought, "hey, that's cool, I
wish people would make more of those types of things."
That's when it hit us: we'd make our OWN anime
movie trailers! So far, we have made one, but
if the response from this one is good enough, we shall
make some more! It's called DBZ
As X-Men: The Movie. You can find
it in the Music Videos section (for now). That
brings me to my next update.
- I reorganized the Music Videos, so that the
pages take less time to load. They are now organized
as follows: Recent Music
Music Videos, and Non-DBZ Music Videos (I should
note that all of the videos work now. I think
there's only one I haven't re-uploaded yet). That
should make things easier, I hope. In addition,
I have got rid of my lame-o "ratings", and
replaced them with the dates in which the videos were
made. I hope this is helpful in seeing how my
videos have progressed from sucky to not-quite-so-sucky.
And speaking of music videos, I hope to have the final
MPEG of my Otakon music video up today or tomorrow.
- Gah, as if DBZ Uncensored wasn't enough, now
my server-mate, Hagemiai, is
now calling it quits. Sorry to see ya go, man.
- My original plan for today's update was to babble
about the fun I've had these last few days, including
going to the beach, and burning, and getting shat upon.
However, something that I feel is much more valuable
has come up that I believe deserves more attention than
my incoherent, self-indulgent rantings. I've just
finished reading the goodbye
message of Chris
Psaros of DBZ Uncensored, and...I have
to comment on it (yeah, I'm slow on the uptake. I haven't
been on a computer for a few days, so sue me! :P).
Please people, respect the guy more than I did (hell,
we never even linked to each other's sites), and *read
what he wrote*. This piece of writing is unbelievable,
depressing, inspiring, and hopeful all at the same time.
It is the epitome of what I think other web masters
like me have been feeling for quite some time. To me,
it signifies the beginning of the end of the second
generation of "old skool" DBZ sites (meaning,
ones that started around '97-'98). It's almost
downright scary how much I can relate to just
about every damn last thing he wrote. I mean,
my gosh, most of the stuff he wrote are *exactly the
same ideas* I want to express the day I will sit down
to write my own retirement reflection. Gah, I
just can't really stress this enough...Anycrap, if you
think it's all peaches and cream to run a big DBZ site,
think again. Chris' writing shows how much something
you work on for fun can truly take over your life.
It also shows how much it hurts when you realize that
you have to separate yourself from it. Seriously,
this is one of the, if not the most, heartfelt works
I have ever read in regards to a DBZ web site, and near
the end, I was getting kinda misty-eyed. I've
never seen a web master "step down" like this
before, but man, the way in which he did it was very
throught-provoking. I think Chris pretty much
said what was on the minds of site owners who have been
doing this for so long, and I'm glad he expressed what
he felt. I implore each and every one of you out
there to please take the time out to read this.
That's all I have to say for now. I doubt you're
reading this Chris, but if you are, good luck in all
- Ah, my gal Dena
has come through again with yet another wonderful Fanart
update. This time around, there are 20
new images for you to feast your eyes on. Enjoy!
- I made a new site-type-thing...^_^; This
is a little vain, though, cuz I finally went and created
a personal page for all of my random stuff. It's
called Meri's Junk Jungle,
and it contains some of my papers for school and other
writings, photos, and other crap that I can't really
put on any of my other sites. Check it out if
ya get bored. :P
Tac Toe With Chibi Trunks and Trunks
Concentration finally work again!
Those two are in the Games section.
- Eek, I wasn't expecting my server to be working
properly again so soon! Ummm...I guess that means
I should add some stuff. Heh, I am a tad un-prepared.
- I've posted a little teaser preview of the new
Music Video I'm
working on. Gone are the days of when I'd make
shitty videos in 4 hours. Now, I'm going to spend
time on them, as my experience with my Otakon video
and award-winning, anime music video maker guru, Scott
Metzler, have taught me. You can download it here,
the "Doesn't Really
Matter"- Preview clip.
- Check out Daizenshuu
EX for major news on Dragonball stuff!
Not only will the original theme songs (re-done in English)
and music be remain in the Dragonball videos, but the
eye-catches will now be included on the DVDs and DB
videos! Excellent, now there will be presumably
less whining online. It's all in his new Feature.
Great work, Jon. Jon's also made a review
of Eric Johnson's movie, "Hall
of Mirrors". I am jealous, I
didn't get my copy yet. :P When I do, I'll mention it
here on the site.
- Today is the day when I give web shout-outs
to my friends with sites you may not know abou, but
really deserve attentiont. They work real hard,
so please check 'em out. Give ADawg's new site,
a go! It's a stomping ground for his
editorials, and other fun things. I'm also a
guest staff member there. Sean, of former "Saiyajin
Fusion Empire" fame has a new site, too!
It's all about his epic fanfic, Chikyujin Chronicles
(gah, this link is wrong. Sean, what is it again?).
My great pal Cat of Goku Central had the
chance to meet a bunch of our online friends at the
recent (I also convinced her to go see Eric Johnson,
too, haha!). Check out her full report here.
And just because they're cool, here are Dragonball Kenkon and
Aku No Nawabari
and Savage Z.
Shout out to Wendy, who is more obsessed with
Raditz than I ever have been or ever will be with Trunks.
It's all at the Tenjoukai.
Ok, I'll shut up now.
- All the DBZ
Scans from the other update days ago are
now working! Gawsh, they're purty.
- Wow....I can't believe how long it's been since
I've made one of these. For the first time in
nearly half a year, and brand-spiffy-new Feature
Film (located on my school space, cuz this
server still won't let me upload stuff other than html
files) has been made! *super gasp!* It's called, "DBZ
Sells Out", and it's all about the
perils that the Z-Gang go through trying to make web
sites, merchandising, TV shows, and movies, just to
make a few extra bucks for a certain evil, scheming
company. I really hope you enjoy it, seeing as
how I haven't produced one of these babies in such a
long time. Let me know what ya think. Special
thanks go out to Mike
(Mr. "I'm Too Sexy For Your Cat") and MG
(Mr. "I'm Too Sexy For A New Host") for helping
out with this one. Well then, I have to write
a page and go to a concert all in one night, so I'll
be seein' you again laters. :P Have fun!
- Go look at new DBZ
Scans. Too stressed for real update.
Places to go, people to see, concerts to drive to, bye.
Update: Sorry, the images don't
seem to be working. Everytime I try to upload
something other than a small html file, I get an error
message. This happened when I first moved to this
server, and it was temporary. Hopefully, this
will be temporary as well. In the meantime, I'll
ready some fun things I've been working on. I
might even upload a preview of my new music vid to my
school web space for the time being. Carry on!
- Right off the bat, I wanna give a big ol' thanks
to all the people who have been sending feedback on
the Philly trip
section. I'm glad to know people are actually
checking it out! Well, my summer class just started,
which is why I haven't been able to get site stuff done
in days. However, I plan to get back on track,
effective immediately. *snoooore* Anywho,
today, there are six new Trunks
Fanfics for you to read. You can
send your submissions to Majin
Kenny, who is now able to go through all
the fanfics again.
- An interview with Laura Bailey, the voice actess
for Chibi Trunks, has been posted to the Trunks
Voice Actor Info page (wow, I've been adding
plenty of stuff to this page lately!). This interview
is taken from the Beckett magazine. Thanks go
out to KRaZyKiTtYkLaWz7 for sending this to me.
- I swear to you, today's update is the biggest
one I have made in a long time. It may not seem
like much at first, but seriously, this took more time
than anything I have worked on in a while. But
it is damn worth it! As you may know, yesterday,
and I headed off to Philly to meet Eric Johnson and
Sonny Strait, who were making an appearance at a mall
as part of the DBZ Hummer tour. It took nearly
all day (ahh, vegging out is goooood), but I have finally
completed my report and media based on yesterday's amazing
experience. It's titled, "Meri,
Mike and Eric Walk Into a Bar....No Big Story",
and it contains many movie clips, photos, screencaps,
a fun sound file, and a summary of our trip. I
really hope you'll check it out (and maybe you'll even
like it, too)! I worked very hard on this thing,
believe it or not ^_^; You can find the link
to it in both the Special Features
section and the Trunks
Voice Actor Info page. Have fun,
and have a great Memorial Day weekend!
- Happy Friday, peeps.
I got off from work today, so I figured I should make
an update this morning! Later, I'm gonna see Pearl
Harbor. I hope it's good! Well, tomorrow
is the big day. Ohh, am I ever nervous!
I'm definiately gonna bring my digital camera, and I'm
thinking I might bring a video camera so I can make
movie clips later on from the experience of meeting
the voices of Trunks and Krillin with Mike (hmm, I do believe his
site is down for the time being). Be afraid.
I know I am! On with the goods..
- I've made a few Chibi Trunks wallpapers for
the Trunks Wallpapers
- Thanks to Presea,
a bunch of hot new Contributed
Trunks Doujinshi images have been posted.
And speaking of doujinshi, the blook I won off eBay
arrived in mail today. There are two reasons why
this one is special: 1) It's a drama, which a type I
usually don't buy. I love my comedy doujinshis!
2) It's nearly 70 pages long. So, if I ever want
to translate it, it's going to take a long time...but
I'll have scans of choice pictures from it up soon!
- I finally got around to updating the Links
page, huzzah! There's plently of really
good sites in this batch, so I recommend you take some
time out to view them!
- For the time being, please do not send any Fanfics
to Majin Kenny. He needs some time to go through
all the current submissions. Thanks!
- So...tired...so very, very tired. Working...summer
class in one week...stuff....work on Otakon video and
fan dub parody (I am the great Washuu!)...yikes.
*brightens up* But me and Mike
are going to see Eric Johnson
and Sonny Strait on the weekend, so horray! I
am revived! Yesss, and with that said, I have
summoned enough energy (Genki dama!? nah.) to make a
DBZ Scans update. Again,
this is a lovely batch of huge-ass, good quality pictures
that I'm sure people like MG
will put to disturbing use. Enjoy them!
- A cute, reminds-me-of-when-I-was-a-15-year-old-Trunks-teenybopper-type
Fan Manga has been posted today. It's
adorable, if you're the type of person who likes to
fantasize about things. :P
- Expect Chibi Trunks media in all forms real
soon. Also, the Links will be updated at some
point. No, I haven't forgotten them...it's just
that it's a tedious update, so I wanna save it for a
rainy day. *Looks outside* God dammit.....
- Alrighty, so it looks like not all the new
DBZ tapes are messed up. Thanks to all those who
e-mailed me. Whee, I can buy the stuff now. :)
Before I forget, please don't send any Fanart to Dena
for the time being. her computer is busted, so
she can't deal with submissions right now. When
she's available again, I'll mention it here on the main
page. Let's move on...
- I just can't stop doing
Trunks Doujinshi translations!
I swear, I'm addicted to it. I hope it's worth
it, though! I wouldn't want all this work to be
for nothing. *sniff sniff* This time around, an
all *new* book entirely has been added to the doujinshi
archives. Enter Tora
Tora, a crazy little book just about Trunks.
The images are hilarious, it's a fun ride. I have
translated three stories for your reading pleasure.
- And speaking of "reading
pleasure", why not give the new editorials posed
in Enlightened Ones
a looksie? :) A Dawg, I love your work,
- 4 new Trunks
Puzzles have been made! The puzzles
are located in the Games
- Yikes, the ToT with a news update!? Say
it isn't so! (*little voice- "it isn't so!*).
According to Trujita
all the new Dragonball tapes that came out today are
defective! There's a blue line that goes across
the screen, and therefore, is impossible to see or hear
anything. Don't buy them! *whew* Thanks
for the info. I was going to buy them tomorrow,
too...Thank goodness for DVDs! Ummm, my new job
has really got me busy! I now work for my University,
so I'm rather tied up right now. However, I should
be able to make a real update tomorrow, yup yup.
Until then, ja ne, my cuties.
- Kuso, I hate bumping my own updates. Check
this out, if you haven't already.
Ok, now that that thing is out of the way, time to continue
with Monday's treats.
- I am a lean, mean, translating machine!
In the Trunks Doujinshi
section, two more Golden
Lucky 5 stories have been translated for
your reading pleasure. I hope you like them!
Thanks for the help, Napiersama!
- The Fan Manga
page finally has a new addition, courtesy
of the wonderful and talented Darci-san! It's
a brand new "Trunks Time" story.
Don't worry, it's just as sick as the rest of Darci's
work. :D Oh, now that I'm done with Cowboy Bebop,
maybe I'll make a music video dedicated to it *evil
- The super duper fun project is done! Ok,
so it isn't for the ToT, but I helped with some of it,
so I feel it is my duty and pleasure to give it much
pluggage. I present to you the new Feature
over at Daizenshuu EX.
It's kind of like....well, it's...umm...Allright, I
can't describe it. It's odd, funny, nutty, and
took months of work. It's Daizenshuu
EX: The Series! In case you were
wondering, I play the characters "Fuck" and
"Gay MrE". I also made the title graphics!
^_^; I urge you to download the audio that goes with
the story. You won't be disappointed!
- For anyone who cares, here is some news on our
favorite dub Trunks voice actor, Eric Johnson.
According to the mailing list that I'm on all about
the movie Eric was in, Eric has been in a few Sherwin
Williams commercials. I haven't seen any yet...;_;
If anyone out there has seen it, and can send me a clip
of it, I'd really appreciate it. Also, it says
that he "has been busy doing character voices and
writing scripts for the popular anime series Dragon
Ball." Script writing? Wow, that's
news to me. Pretty cool. *nods* For all
those who don't know, Eric will be playing the role
of the Tenkaichi Budokai Announcer. He's also
been co-producing some short films. All this info
has been added to the Trunks Voice Actor Info section.
Now if you'll excuse me, I'm gonna waste my last day
before my new job begins by finishing off the Cowboy
Bebop series. Spike, you little darling, you....
Oh, and happy 17th b-day, Alyssa.
- *cough* So, "it"
isn't ready yet. Once it is done, however, I shall
mention it here on the main page. Sorry 'bout
that. In the meantime, please enjoy today's update!
I've made a bunch of new Trunks
Screencaps, and they've been posted to
GT Trunks- Page 2.
Since these are from some GT fansubs (gawd, I
haven't used fansubs as a source for screencaps in so
long. I feel so dirty!), the images are smaller
than usual, like when I take caps from commercially
available goods. But in any case, they're still
rare GT Trunks pics, so I hope you will like them!
Ja ne for now. I shall come back when "it"
is done. :P Umm, I was gonna have a Feature Film
ready for this weekend, but that doesn't look like it'll
happen. I'll definitely have one made next week,
- I updated the Links page
on my Newbie's Guide
to Anime Music Videos site, for a lack
of anything better to do.
- With school completed for the time being, I
got time to do odd things, like doujinshi translations.
Wow, it's been a while since I've exercised my Japanese
skills, so this was quite the difficult task.
In any case, please check out the Trunks Doujinshi page (which is now working
again) to see my new
Golden Lucky 5 translations! Remember
that since these stories are un-flipped, you have to
read them from right to left.
- 12 lovely and large DBZ images have been added
to Scans- Page 2.
I look forward to seeing how MG will mutilate these
new images. ^_^
- It's coming. Tomorrow. Oh yeah,
be sure to view yesterday's Music Video if you haven't done so already.
- Yatta! My finals are done, and school
is over. I have about three weeks downtime 'till
my summer class begins, so I shall use that time wisely
for making fun goodies for the site. I had a good
time celebrating the end of my school year yesterday,
ahhh...^_- And now, on with the updates.
- It only took about 5-6 months, but I finished
the preliminary final version of my Otakon Music Video
submission! You can find it in the "Non-DBZ"
part of the Music
Videos page. Here it is: "Again"- Fushigi Yuugi Music Video
(Final Web Version). I'm gonna remake
the *final* final version on a better computer, and
ship it off to the contest from there. But for
the purposes of this site, the video I'm posting today
is most likely what you'll see at the Otakon, if my
video makes it in the contest. Any feedback or
suggestions would be greatly appreciated. This
is my favorite music video that I've made...it's my
widdle pride and joy!
- The Fanfics
section has been updated with 9 new stories.
I hope you'll enjoy them. Send all submissions
to MajinKenny. Remember,
your fanfics *must* be about Trunks (remember who the
focus of this site is, kids).
- Holy crap, this Monday is off to a great start!
Three weeks ago, I re-submitted the ToT to the Anipike,
cuz of the url change. However, I never would
have thought that the ToT would be picked as of of the
Weekly Web Picks...
for a *second* time! The
first time that something ToT-related
was picked by the Anipike was back in 1999 for the Feature
Films. As far as I know, this is the only
DBZ site to be spotlighted not once, but twice by the
Anipike. That's pretty neat, and I'm real happy.
I guess this means I'm doing something right. ^_^
Anywhooo, let us continue with today's shizzat.
- I've added some (skimpy) info and some pictures
of Laura Bailey, the dub voice actress of Chibi Trunks,
to the Trunks Voice
Actor Info page.
- The Sexuality
of Trunks has new quotes posted!
- There are two new bios up in the Look
into the Future page.
- Wow, if I told you I spent 2+ hours on this
update, you probably wouldn't believe me, heh.
'S ok, cuz I like to pretend that it's worth it.
Today, there's a fabulous new Fanart
update. 30 truly wonderful new images
have been added to Page
3 of the Fanart section. 6 of those
are made by me, huzzah! I've been wanting to post
them up for a while now. Collectively, I call
it "DB Prom
2001", where you can find pics of
Dragonball couples all dressed up and purty-like.
I hope you like them... I worked real hard on them ^_^;
I should mention that a *lot* of the fanarts this time
around are of Trunks. Don't worry fellas, there
are many hot chicks in my prom drawings, so go check
those out to make up for it. Thanks go out to
for handling the submissions.
- Alrighty, my final exams are
Monday and Tuesday. I wish to be thought of as
a living zombie until the end of them. :P However, once
I'm done, you can look forward to a crap-load of new
goodies from me. I have a new idea for a music
video I want to do, as well as a Feature Film, and a
new section. See ya soon!!
- When I went to the mall yesterday, being the
pathetic fangirl that I am, I bought a Trunks keychain
and a bunch of DBZ cards. Huzzah, scannable content!
So, I scanned a few of the cards and posted them to
DBZ Scans- Page 2.
These images are from the early Buu era, and
are really high quality. I hope you'll check them
out. More scans to come at a later date.
- And now, I bring you the Friday Super Fuji Fun
Time Plug of the Day. Man, I don't even know how
to give this an introduction... it's the coolest thing
I've read in a while. Then again, I'm a tad biased
since I was around when most of this editorial was being
written. I'm talking about the new Staff Thought
over at Daizenshuu
EX. Man oh man, do I ever feel sorry
for whoever is at the receiving end of this editorial.
Mike-boy, I'm jealous of your writing style.
Can you write my paper for me? (ok, so we're in the
same Japanese history class, but write mine for me anyways
;_;) A word to the wise: if you want to
write an effective and convincing editorial, research
and well-thought out ideas really help. Ok, that
was my random advice for the day that pretty much sucks.
- May day, May day! Ah, the weather is to die
for, and I ... I am dying from cabin fever.
It's finals time, so I'm writing papers and studying
to the point where I forget what it looks like outside
my house. ;_; It's so tragic. Fortunately, I should
be done with all that school crap in a week, so stress
will go bye-bye soon. On with today's update (update!?
I should be studying! ARG!).
- I worked on one of my super fuji fun-time sections,
the Trunks Doujinshi page! Bunches of
loverly pics have been added to Misc.
Trunks Doujinshi. I think I accidently
put some "Contributed Pics" in this batch,
so if you see your scans in the wrong place, let me
- There is a new winner and sentence up in the
Random DBZ Fill in the Blank Contest.
- As I mentioned a few days ago, I've been working
on a new site, and it's finally done. It's called
Newbie's Guide to Making Anime Music Videos".
This was for a project for school, but I figured it
would tie in well with the ToT in that I get a lot of
music video questions. With this little site,
I hope that all your questions will be answered.
- Gah, a lot of sites have new urls! I won't
go through and fix them now cuz there's a shit-load
of them, so I shall save that for another update. :P
- I added a banner to DBC:WDC
below cuz the ToT wouldn't be complete
without more clutter on the main page. ^_^
- I did one of my favorite kinds of updates today...
screencaps! Damn, I have way too much fun making
those images. For your visual amusement, 13 new
Chibi Trunks Screencaps have been added
to the Trunks Screencaps section. I hope
you like them. I bought a couple of GT fansubs
today (someone shoot me), so I should be making a bunch
of GT Trunks 'caps next weekend, hopefully. Stay
tuned for that.
- Gah, today, is a sad, sad day. I just
read that one of my favorite sites, Saiyajin Fusion Empire,
will be closing next month. ;_; Sad am I... I
suggest you give this site a final looksie before it
ascends to DBZ web site heaven. It's one of my
top picks for DBZ sites. Ever. SJFE will be missed
muchly. *runs away and whines*

- Wow, the last few days have been just plain
weird. First, a car accident wound up in my backyard,
then, my computer literally died for a day and then
went back to normal, and then I did some work for a
project for another site (that will be mentioned soon,
heheh. Be *very* afraid*). Anycrap, I've managed
to do just a little bit of work for this site.
A couple of new, high quality Chibi Trunks scans have
been added to the Trunks
Scans page. Expect some Chibi Trunks
screencaps in a few days, too. Carry on!
- Ok all you happy fanboys and girls out there,
it's the update you've all been wating for! New
MajinKenny's da man. He's selected some fine fanfics
to be posted this week (I should mention that new fanfics
will be posted weekly, or bi-weekly, depending on how
many submissions there are), one of which includes the
third installment of "Pan and Trunks' First Date"
by TurtleEmm. Remember that all Fanfics must be
sent to MajinKenny.
- Updated the Trunks
Drinking Game with a single Trunks drinkable
quality (does that even make sense? :P).
- If you didn't catch this before the site went
down, I'll post it again for all those who missed it.
Shelly sent me a very cute song she made just for the
ToT! You can listen to it here.
- My former server-mates have found a new home!
That's right, I'm talking about my buddies over at Daizenshuu
EX. They have a new host, and are back
in business... with a bang! I highly recommend
reading Mike's Staff
Thought all about DBZ DVDs. Also,
be sure to give his new Music
section a peep. I was at his dorm part of the
time he was developing this extensive music database,
so I know how much effort he put in to it. *sniff*
'Tis a thing of beauty!
- My new site is just about done. Just a
few more finishing touches, and it'll be finished.
I'll probably "debut" it tomorrow.
- Huzzah, an actual content update! Today, I've not
only re-organized the Trunks in English section, but I've also added
a new sub-section for dub
Season 5 Chibi Trunks sounds. Aside from Trunks
sounding like an 8-year-old mobster, I think the sounds
are pretty fun. Enjoy!
- Whoa man, it's 420! Time to get high!....
too bad I despise smoking. *cough* I love you loft *cough*
Anyways, could you believe I'm making this update while
writing a paper? This is called "Meri is
lazy and can't write a stinking 2-page Art History paper,
so I'll make a bs update instead"! So, to
take my mind off things, I've updated the Links page with just a couple of new items.
Noteworthy places this time around include: Planet
Kakarot's House of Wonder,
and Red Ribbon Beauty.
Hey, I recently discovered that I can get this
site more popular by putting down other web masters!
So, to the web mistress of Temple *O Gokuo, yer ass
is mine, you dumb skank. :P
- Since Android18, the girl who helped with the
Fanfics, has seemingly fallen off the face of the planet,
my friend MajinKenny
has graciously volunteered his time out to be in charge
of the Fanfics! Please send all submissions
- Yatta! The ToT is finally alive and kicking
again! About 85% of the files have been uploaded,
with the exception of some music videos and movie clips
(which will be uploaded later), and files beginning
with the letter U-Z (long story). All I can say
is wow *sigh*. I never want to have to go through
this again. If you missed my long-winded speech
about the site at the old location going down, please
read what I wrote at the bottom of the update list.
Honestly, I don't think many people know what's it's
like to attempt to transfer 5000+ files from one host
to another. It's stressful and a real bitch and
I wouldn't wish such a thing upon people I dislike,
but now, I hope you can enjoy the goodies here again.
I am relieved it's all up again *super, super sigh*
Some things are still missing, and I'm in the process
of retrieving them. No, I don't need any help,
thank you. ^_^ And PLEASE don't e-mail
me telling me that there are some broken links.
I'm well aware of that. *triple sigh* Now
that that's out of the way, let's have fun again!
As long as you're willing to keep coming back for dis
weird shit, I'm willing to deliver. See ya soon!
- First up, Happy Easter to all those who
celebrate it. Supposedly, I do, but....ehh, I
got family coming over today, so I guess that means
I celebrate it. If you understand the song lyric
in the title bar, you get a jellybean! Last night,
Mike and I went to go
see New Found Glory, The Youth Ahead, Midtown, and many
others in the first annual Surf and Skate Fest in Asbury
Park, NJ. We had to wait 8 hours before NFG played,
but hot damn, it was so incredibly worth it. They
put on a great show. I lost my watch and sunglasses
there, and got kicked a few times (short people and
crowd surfing don't mix. Save me!), but in the end,
I enjoyed it muchly. I think Mike will be writing
a full blown review of the event at his temporary url,
so stay tuned for that. I don't have that much
to add to it other than I can't wait to see NFG again...
and my feet really hurt. Whee, only the Warped
Tour, Blink 182, and 2 *N Sync concerts to go!
I have warped musical tastes. Deal. :P
I've been having trouble uploading again, but today,
it seems like it's working fine. I'll upload
shit on my crappy 56k modem, so I'll see how long that
takes. Hopefully, I'll be done uploading by the
end of the day, if my compy doesn't konk out on me.
Then, I have to go an edit hundreds of html files associated
with the ToT. I haven't gotten around to doing
any of that yet. I'm a baaaddd widdle web mistress.
Anycrap, when all is said and done, I *hope* to have
this all done by Tuesday. Until then, don't get
sick on Easter candy!
Oh yeah, I almost forgot! "The Producers"
on Broadway was the best play I've ever seen in my life.
It was so sick and twisted and funny. I highly
recommend seeing it, if you can manage to pay $100+
per ticket for a show that will be sold out for many
months ahead. :) Matthew Broderick was so talented
and cute! I wanted to take him home with me in
a box. Damn you, Sarah Jessica Parker!
Whee, I love how the main page has turned into a place
for my nonsensical ranting. I can get away with
it since no one is really reading this, huzzah!
- After not being able to upload pretty
much anything all weekend (heh, sorry, things happen.
:P), it is time for me to seriously get cracking and
move everything to this new location. I was having trouble
with moving files over, but it looks like everything
is working fine now. Expect this site to be back in
full effect any time between Wednesday and Friday. Tomorrow,
I'm going into NYC with my family to see the new Broadway
show, "The Producers". Yep, it's based on
that old Mel Brooks movie you may have seen. I can't
wait to see how they will pull off "Springtime
for Hitler". It'll be great. Have a good day!
- Hey DBZ freaks, Meri here. Well, eFront
has gone and decided that it will no longer host sites
any more. To read the full story on this, please go
That means no more ToT at sreanime.net, or Daizenshuu
EX (which is for the time being, located here!).
Oh well, that's that. What's done is done, and I have
no problem with moving on. I would just like to thank
SREDBZ for taking me in a year ago in my time of need.
Now, flash forward to the present, where I'd like to
thank Tapion for taking in the ToT here at www.dbcollection.com! Right
now, I'm still in the process of uploading files, and
I hope to be done with that in a few days. However,
the media files will take longer to upload, for I have
not yet decided what I what I want to do about that
area of the site. In any case, welcome to the new home
of the ToT! The usually wackiness will ensue shortly.
If you could upate your bookmarks and links (that's
http://www.dbcollection.com/trunks), that would be greatly
Now, to move on to more serious business. I've been
working on the Temple O' Trunks for three years. I'm
in college. I have friends, family, and a boyfriend
to worry about. I just have other things to attend to
in my life that take precedence to working on this site.
As much as I love working on the ToT, I can't deny the
fact that DBZ and Trunks aren't the biggest things in
my life right now, and haven't been for quite some time.
Just because my love for Trunks and DBZ has died down
considerably over the years doesn't mean my passion
for expressing my creativity through these things has.
I work on this site because I love to provide you guys
entertainment. It really makes me happy. It's as simple
as that. ^_^ However, if something should happen along
the line that would threaten the existence of this site,
I doubt I would continue with it. I've been on more
hosts than I can remember. Moving to new locations is
stress that I won't really want to bother with, but
I keep moving because I don't want to let you all down....
I'd feel guilty that way, and I don't know why. Sounds
kinda silly, huh? :) But, enough of that brooding crap.
So long as the ToT is able to say alive here, I'll keep
working on it. When the right time comes, I'll stop
working on the site on *my* terms, not because some
server problems won't let me. Catch y'all real soon.
First order of business today, a bunch of Portuguese
Trunks sounds from when he fights Cell have been posted
to Trunks Around
the World. Cell sounds.... interesting
in Portuguese. :P Thanks Michan!
In Trunks Cartoons, some new funny
stories are now up on Page
2. This section was getting pretty
large, so I divded it into two pages. I would
have had a lot more cartoons to post, but AOL was dumb
and deleted a bunch of my old submissions that were
lying in my inbox. So, if you send me a story
within the last month, and you don't see it posted today,
please send it to me again.
Two new pages of Vejita4Eva's Fan
Manga, "Walk This World", are
now available for viewing.
I received the cutest item in my e-mail inbox yesterday!
Shelly and her sister made a ToT Song for me, so I figured I may as well
post it here. It's very easy to sing along to,
so why don't you make an ass out of yourself and give
it a go! It's quite fun!
Geez, I really have to stop making these updates from
school...being on a T1 here spoils me. ^_^ Anywhooo,
this afternoon, I have some new stuff to share. It's
nothing out of the ordinary, but I hope you'll like
looking at what there is to see.
- In compliance with my getting rid
of link submissions time, I have posted a new batch
of Links that I have
found myself and liked, were sent to me, or were shown
to me by friends (thanks, A Dawg!). Highlights this
time around include Aku No Nawabari, Majin
Gohan.com, Savage Z, and Twisted
World. I also update links to sites that have
Three very good editorials have beed added to the Enlightened
Ones page. The got some vocal opinions
in this batch, hoo boy. ^_-
- Hey gang! I hope you enjoyed the Temple
O* Gokuo (spelled wrong on purpose) April
Fool's Day gag. I know I certainly had a blast
making it (I wasted a whole 20 minutes of my life on
that thing, dear god!). Thanks go out to Cat of
for having the idea of our sites switching
places for the day. What? You say you thought
the site was hacked? Oh me oh my, how gullible
of you! This server is super secure (yay VPN),
and I doubt that would ever happen. Sooo.....
out of 35 e-mails I got regarding yesterday's joke,
a mere three people got that it was just that: a joke.
To me, that's kind of sad ^_^. Look at
the calendar, my friends! It's the first of April!
*sigh* Man, I have to wait another 365 days to play
with your heads in my dopey way again. :P It's
a little too late at night to have a real content update,
but I will have some stuff up by the afternoon.
Have a fantastic and prank-free day. Oh yeah!
Yesterday, VegettoEX (who also was not
hacked by Alaskans) and I ventured out to NYC to see
all nice and digital-like on the silver screen.
What an experience that was... I'll have more to say
on that expedition laters. :)
- With the new commercial DBZ videos out, I was able
to remake another Music Video! Today, it's a higher quality (and
higher screen resolution!) version of the super girly
video of mine, "He's
So Shy: THESE Are the Men of DBZ?!". Not
much was changed in this video from the original, except
for some minor timing elements, and video quality is
just much better than before. I hope you like it as
much as I liked re-making it. :)
- First off, I wanna say how shocked I am at how
many people have e-mailed me saying they've played The
Trunks Drinking Game. Wow...I didn't
think you'd guys actually *play* it! Good going.
Now, on with the update (and happy friday to all y'all
working for the weekend!)
- After at least a month with no new additions,
the Fanart section
has been updated with 21 images. I made an attempt
at using Photoshop to make some art, and I really am
pleased with the results! *pats self on back* Oh yeah,
check out other people's works, too. :P Remember
to send all submissions to Dena!
- I've updated the About Me and
simply because there was a lot of out-dated info and
pictures in both places.
- Eric Johnson's e-mail address
has been added to the Trunks
Voice Actor Info page.
- For all you video-holics out there,
I've posted 5 new English Trunks
Movie Clips. These dubbed clips are from the
episode when Trunks goes home to the future and kills
the Androids. Compare them to the Japanese version clips
that are already up, and notice some of the differences.
It's fun! It seems like a lot of people missed this
episode when it first aired, so here's your chance to
catch up on what you may have missed.
- There's a winner and a new sentence
up in Random DBZ Fill in the Blank Contest.
- Talk about working on a whim. Today,
I whipped a new section that I had an idea for today
in my Intro to Communication class (aren't I such a
good widdle student?). It's a brand new addition
to the Games
area called The
Trunks Drinking Game. C'mon, what
character site would be complete without a drinking
game!? Anycrap, have fun with it. Try not
to get too terribly wasted. :P
- As I mentioned yesterday, I made a bunch
of music videos over the break, and there's no time
like the present to go and post them now! They are both
non-DBZ Music Videos, so you'll find them at the bottom
of the page. The first one is the newest version of
my almost completed Otakon 2001 Music Video Contest
submission entry, "Again".
I'm really loving how this is turning out, and I hope
you will, too. :) Beware- there are quite a bit of Fushigi
Yuugi spoilers in it. The second is a non-anime video
all-together. It's called "Rumpshaker", and I have to thank Melanie
for all the help with it. This vid was made in celebration
of a similar video we made one year earlier. Giddy girls
ride space cowboys! That's that! Enjoy.
- I've decided to get rid of Link submission
periods because, well, they just poot. I'll be posting
a bunch of new links to sites that I have recently found
and liked in a few days. That is all.
- Hot DAMN, that was
one helluva break!!!! YEEEEEEHAAAAAAW!!!!!!!!!
You may have noticed that myself and Daizenshuu EX have not updated
in a while. We decided that we hate you all and
don't wanna do jack shit for any of you weasels!
Just kidding! :) Allow me to explain what happened.
We couldn't update because our access to our FTP accounts
was blocked. I won't go into the reasoning of
why this happened since it's a long, boring, and ugly
story of when advertisers go bad (coming to FOX!).
In any case, ToT is back whether you like it or not,
although I have enjoyed not having to worry about the
site more than anything. ^_^ To all those
who didn't mind that I couldn't update, I love you.
Thanks for respecting the problems we were facing
on the www.animenetwork.com
server. To everyone else: fuck you. Your
life will go on if I don't make a stinking update.
Well, it's good to be back, and what
timing. This is the three year anniversary of
the Temple O' Trunks! *claps* I'm amazed that
it's been around this long, and I fully intend to keep
this monster up for as long as I can. Just keep
in mind that this break from the site has spoiled me.
It's gonna be weird getting back into the habit of updating,
but I'll see what I can do. School is very important
to me right now, and that takes precedence over everything
Here is some happy news for all you
Eric Johnson fans that I'm sure you'll get a kick out
of! During the break, Eric gave me a new e-mail
address that will be used for fan mail! How nice!
Now you all can stop bugging me for his e-mail, har
har har. So, if you'd like to contact the voice
of Trunks, you can e-mail
Eric Johnson here! Please be gentle.
He's a great person. ^_^
Now for things to come in the future....
as you know, the new dub Saiyaman tapes came out last
week. Chibi Trunks made his first appearance in
them, so I suppose I should make some clips of him!
At first, I wasn't sure what to make of his voice.
I thought it was utter crap, actually. However,
as the epsidoes progressed, he sounded nice and bratty
by the time he was kickin' in the second tape.
When I have time (which won't be soon), I'll add some
stuff of that! Come to think of it, I found the
new tapes to be rather enjoyable, in their corny, bad
dub kinda way. There were a few cute jokes in there
(the whole "Gohan, keep your pants up" thing
was very amusing), so it's something neat to watch on
a rainy day. :P
In addition, I have worked on a few
music videos in my absense. My Fushigi
Yuugi music video for the Otakon is 75% done, so I'll
upload that tomorrow and post it for your visual amusement.
I also have a few others that I'll have to post up at
some point. Stay tuned!
Guess that's all for now. I'm
rather taken a-back by this whole being able to update
again thing. If I had my way, I'd still be on
a break, but I should deliver da goods to y'all!
See ya soon.
- I normally don't do
anything like this, but today I thought I would make
an exception. My good ol' pal Leda-chan has sent a truly
Cartoon that I had to simply go ahead and post.
Seriously, this is the best submission I have ever gotten....
It's an edited doujinshi, but it's still really good.
I don't wanna give the plot away, so you'll have to
check it out for yourself ^_^. There has been another
new Cartoon added as well, so be sure to give that a
looksie. Remember, the Temple O' Trunks does not endorse
the use of drugs in any way, shape or form. :) Oh yes,
tonight, I hope to make a new music video, so stay tuned
for that this weekend.
- It looks like Geocities decided
to be a big poop and not allow hotlinking files from
other sites anymore. As a result, there have been
a lot of broken links out and about in the Fan
Manga section. Some things have been
uploaded to new locations, so the Darci's "Trunks
Time Collection" and my "Homeroom
Blues" stories are now working again!
- A new, very nice Trunks Desktop Theme has been added,
thanks to David.
- Two editorials are now up
- Huzzfrickinzah, my midterms
are over! Wheee, less stress than usual shall
ensue (barely). This weekend, I've posted a butt-load
of new images in Trunks
Doujinshi- Page 2. They're all very
loverly. ^_^ Sorry, I haven't been able to work
on the translations lately....
- Got a winner and a new sentence
up in Random DBZ Fill in the Blank Contest.
- The day of freedom (meaning,
end of midterms) is upon us (meaning, me)! Before that
day come, please enjoy the numerous Trunks Cartoons
that have been posted. Good day!
- We're coming into the home
stretch! Only one more midterm to go...and then...and
them....beautiful freedom! Wahahahaha (that is,
until it's time for finals)! After this last
exam, the stress level should definitely be down, and
that is a good thing. Between studying and pulling
out my hair and driving all over the state, I was able
to make a spiffay update today. Please enjoy!
- Added three new Fan
Manga stories today. I also slightly
modified the look of the page. ^_^
- 7 new images are up in Scans- Page 2.
- Got a new funny Trunks pic
posted in Trunks POTW.
- My, my, my, has it ever been
a busy week. I still have one more exam and one
paper to do within the next week, so please bear with
me. Such is the life of a busy college student.
The only thing I was able to update today (in the midst
of study for a loverly Art History exam) was some mad
sweet sexy French Trunks mp3's to the Trunks
Around the World section. Mucho thanks
go out to always wonderful Roselyne for
encoding the sounds. ^_^ Enjoy!
- Because you demanded it, the
link to the down Fanfic,
This World", has been found at an
all new location. While I personally don't care
for fanfics, this is one of the few that I've ever read,
and really, really liked. I hope you will, too!
- Good lord, you simply must
check out this parody site called
"Dragonball Community: We Don't Care!".
*wipes tear from eye* I've always wanted to do
a site like this, so I'm glad someone finally got around
to doing so! 'Tis a thing of beauty, it is.
It's a riot, so check it out if you can spare some time!
- One exam down, 2 to go.
Sorry gang, but I have a lot of studying to do, so my
current doujinshi translations are only half-way done.
I plan on finishing them up at school tomorrow, and
posting them in the evening. Stay tuned for that.
^_^ And now, for today's update...
- Yes, yes, I know the chat
room blows. It looks like my plan for getting
an mIRC chat fell through for the time being.
However, thanks to the suggestion of chat regular, Meli-chan,
a new Chat Room has
been made! Yeah, it ain't the best, but it's certainly
better than the old one (I hope). :P
- In Animerica Vol. 9, Issue
1, a very, very small review of the History of Trunks
dub video has been provided. While not as well
done as reviews I've seen on the web, I was glad to
see the video get at least some attention in the popular
mag (although, it woulda been cooler if they did a review
of the DVD). I won't post the whole review, but
I will show you the last part of it, which I think is
something we can all pretty much agree with:
"For the soundtrack for
the English dub, the distributor decided to replace
the original score with a nonstop array of inappropriate
rock songs plastered indiscriminately over the action.
The tape box includes a label announcing 'Music by
Dream Theater, Bootsy Collins & Buckethead, Slaughter,
and more.' Whatever such a label actually encourages
youthful music fans to buy the tape or, conversely,
discourages some of the series' diehard fans remains
to be seen."
"Remains to be seen", my
ass. The guys at Animerica don't go online much,
I guess. :)
- Geez, I'm really churning
out these music videos like there's no tomorrow.
:P Today's video is a non-Dragonball treat.
It's a Sailor Moon music vid based on the Sailor Moon
R movie! There are two versions of this video:
You can download either "Carry
On Dancing"- High Quality (12.2 MB)
or "Carry On
Dancing"- Lower Quality (6.1 MB).
I made this video on a whim last night, but I think
it turned out, really, really well. The quality
is amazing, too (even in the low-quality version), since
I used clips from the SMR DVD. Thanks go out to
VegettoEX for letting
me use his DVD and computer to make this vid.
- I'm currently working on another
doujinshi translation. I hope to have it up tonight
or tomorrow, depending on how much studying I get done
(three exams in one week, eeek!).
- Wheeee haw! I finally
finished up the music video remake I've been working
on! This music
video is one of the more popular ones on
the site, and I'm glad I was able to remake it, since
I think the original is a piece of garbage. Here
it is, the Vegeta Music Video: Break Me (Version 2.0).
This version sports much better quality than the old
one, and has some new, crazy clips. I hope you
like it as much as I enjoyed making it.
- Holy god, there's an new English
Trunks voice! Heh, well, sorta. This Trunks
voice isn't in the FUNi dub. The new English Trunks
voice I'm talking about is a part of the Holland dub
of Dragon Ball Z. I've known about this for awhile,
but was sworn to secrecy and couldn't mention anything
about it....-_-; This is dubbed by...*dun dun dun* The
Ocean Group, of DBZ Seasons 1 & 2, Ranma 1/2, Gundam
Wing, and Escaflowne fame. Yeah, remember them?
The actors who could actually *act*? Anycrap,
they're doing a DBZ dub for Holland. Neat, eh?
Interestingly enough, these new episode include Trunks'
was kind enough to encode me a file of Trunks'
Holland dub voice. You can download it here, and it can be found in
the Special Features
section (I'll move it to "Trunks In Engligh"
at a later time). Hmm...my opinion on the new
English Trunks voice? It sucks ass. Sorry...
I prefer Eric Johnson's portrayal of Trunks much more
(and it helps that he's a super nice guy!). This
guy sounds like a stiff, un-emotional, dirty old man.
Ack! If anything, it'll give you a good laugh,
so check it out! Hmm...know what's scary?
The dialogue and music sucks, just as much, if not more-so,
than FUNi's. So what if it's got the old voices?
It's still garbage. Arg, I need to purify myself....*runs
away to watch some more Fushigi Yuugi*. Credits
go to OA.
- Speaking of English voices....I'm
running into trouble with the Eric Johnson interview.
He wants to do it and all, but problems keep coming
up. Once something actually gets *done*, I'll
tell the whole story.
- Dena has gone through all of
the Fanart submissions, and she has picked 16
new images out of the batch. All the new art work
can be found on Page
2 of the Fanart section.
- Four truly excellent editorials
are now up in Enlightened
- Well, I was hoping to have
a nice music video remake up today, but a snow storm
prevented me from getting home, so I'm making this update
from elsewhere. Instead, I shall post this Music Video,
the Fushigi Yuugi Music
Video: Gamma Version. I'm going to be
getting the second Fushigi Yuugi DVD box set tomorrow,
so I can go work on this video even more later!
I hope you like it. Please, don't tell me to "hurry
up and finish up" this video. The Otakon
music video contest isn't until the summer, and I don't
have any intention of finishing it up soon. :)
Just enjoy the preview of what is done so far.
- Hey fan girls, I suggest checking
out the new Trunks
Doujinshi images! There are a few
new ones from the "Blue Berry" book that I
think you might like. ^_^
- There's a new winner and sentence
in Random DBZ Fill in
the Blank Contest.
- Holy crap on a stick, I'm
updating again! Ah, so long, my beloved extended
break from the site.....Anywho, allow me to explain
the situation, so that I may never see a "why is
your site down!?" e-mail again (oh....god...wretched
e-mails...). Our host moved its servers to another
state, so the sites on www.animenetwork.com
included) were down. Even when the sites
were back up in the new location, we weren't able to
gain access to the server in order to make any additions.
Why? Well, other than the hosting company being
incompetent twits, there's not much else to say.
In any case, we're able to update now, and the ToT's
ready to rock. I kind of have a busy weeking ahead
of me, so I can only add a few new things. But
I DO have a lot of fun things planned for the near future,
including ideas for three or so new sections (hey, I
wasn't *totally* sitting around twiddling my fingers
while the site was down!). Stay uned for that,
cuz I hope you'll enjoy what I have in store.
On with the crappage du jour....
Fan Manga section has additions
to both the ever-popular Darci-san story collection
(this time, starring...CELL!?), and the "Walk This
World" saga. Enjoy!
- A few new and amusing Trunks Cartoons have been produced.
- While the site was down, I
was able to translate yet another of my new Trunks
Doujinshis! I'll have some real nice
stand-alone pics up within a day or two!
- 4 new funny Trunks Cartoons have been posted.
I recommed the Piccolo's Auction story, as well as the
Trunks x Goku comic, hehe.
- Added a couple of quotes to
The Sexuality of Trunks.
My fave new one was the quote posed in the Japanese
version quotes section. :)
- Well, the new "Great
Saiyaman" tapes came out yesteday (kinda funny,
considering none of the episodes actually had the Great
Saiyaman in them). I haven't finished watching
them yet, but they look fun! I adore stupid filler
episodes. I've never seen the Afterlife Tournament
episodes in Japanese before, so I'm allowed to be a
dubbie for just these few episodes, muwahaha!
However, I have seen the last episode on the last new
tape before, so I was able to compare it to the original.
Oooohh baby, am I loving teen Gohan's voice! And
it was especially startling to see Videl dubbed, too.
Oh, she's kick arse. Heh, and they fact that they
referred to "Hell" and "Mr. Satan"
were also pleasant treats. I just can't wait 'till
next month, cuz that's when Chibi Trunks will show up
in the dub tapes. Scary. I guess I should provide
a link to DaizenshuuEX,
since I let VegettoEX use the tapes I bought
yesterday to make fun things from the episodes. ^_^
- Oh my, am I ever so very
proud of me for translating this new Trunks
Doujinshi. It's story number 2 in
the "Blue Berry" book, and it's probably one
of my fave single doujinshi stories ever. Not
only that, but I think my translation is dead on.
Steve Simmons, look out! And I don't wanna hear
any bitching from Trunks x Pan haters regarding this
story. I just post the doujinshi, so don't get
all pissy with me just cuz...well...if I say any more,
it'll give the story away. ^_^ I hope you enjoy
it as much as I did!!
- Two more pages in the "Z
Artiste" Fan Manga
have been posted.
This update goes out to all my crazy fangirls
out there. Here are some super spiffy Trunks Screencaps
of Trunks from DBZ
Movie 9. Why are these special?
Cuz is the one and only movie we get to see Trunks wearing
that cute wifebeater/little denin vest number.
Way to be fashionable! Oh yeah, more doujinshi
translation fun coming soon!
- A new winner and sentence
has been added to Random
DBZ Fill in the Blank Contest.
- Tonight, I have some of one
of my new Trunks Doujinshi's scanned and translated.
Yep, I translated one of the stories all by myself!
I'm so glad I was able to put my Japanese skills to
good use. It took a really long time for me to
do (about 5 hours), but I'm really glad I was able to
have this translated so that you all can enjoy this
story. It's all about Trunks and Pan....'nuff
said. I'll have more images and hopefully translated
stories from this and all my other new doujinshi's up
- Happy birthday to me!
Yup yup, I turned the big 20 today. Don't I feel
old! Well...not really. ^_^ I had a great
b-day so far (parking ticket aside), even if I did have
school (my new classes rule! Three cheers for
college). I got FOUR new doujinshi's, so I have
a crapload of scanning I'll have to do (my fave one
is a book all about Trunks and Pan. It's terribly
sweet!). Stay tuned for that soon! Since
I'm having a busy day, the only thing I can update for
the time being is The
Sexuality of Trunks. I'll be adding
more shizzat tomorrow. Ja ne!
- Oh yes, if you have a few
minutes to spare, I recommend checking out VegettoEX's
feature on Yu
Yu Hakusho. Now, I've seen the first
few episodes and movies of this series, and I don't
particularly care for YYH (don't hurt me! Although,
Kuruma is hot). Regardless, I hope FUNi doesn't
do evil things to the series. So, check out this
feature so you know what's up before it's dubbed.
Be a cool kid!
- Happy MLK Day to all those
who have off from school! All those who do have
school....well don't you just suck. The spring
semester starts for me tomorrow, so my winter break
is pretty much over. Before I go and depress myself,
please check out these updates.
- 2 brand new (and yaoi-ish)
Fan Manga's have been posted!
- In the Non-DBZ Music Videos section, I've added a preview
of the video that I want to submit to the 2001 Otakon.
It's a Fushigi Yuugi video called "I'll See You
Again" all about the love triangle
between Miaka, Tamahome, and Hotohori. I only
have 40 seconds of it done so far, but I really like
how it's going. Any suggestions, ideas, or comments
on the video about be deeply appreicated!
- Arg, I forgot to link to Dragonball Kenkon
when I updated the links page! Gomen nasai!
- Booyah, I *finally* finished
looking through all the link submissions! Huzzah
am I. Out of the 65 submissions, 18 of them have
been posted in the Links
section. I hope you'll enjoy checking
- I did yet another music video remake. This time, it's
"Bye Bye Bye:
Trunks vs. #17 & #18" yet
again! You may be wondering "Meri, why in
cheese's name did you make *another* BBB remake?"
The answer is simple: Upon fixing my capture card,
I wanted to make a REALLY high quality version of one
of the site's most popular vids. This version
is the highest quality Real Video music video on this
site. it's 5.7 MB, but damn, I think it's worth
it. ^_^ Speaking of music videos, my server-mate
made a friggin' awesome Rurouni
Kenshin video. It's based on the
OVA's, so you can bet that it's not meant for those
with weak stomachs. :p Well, I got the first half
of Fushigi Yuugi on DVD in my possesion (thank you muchly,
Scott)...that means I won't be doing much of anything
for awhile. ^_- Take care!
- Here's a section
that's in need of a good update....Fanart!
That's right! Dena
has sifted through all of the fanart submissions,
and the 18 new pics posted are the creme of the crop.
Enjoy! Remember, when sending submissions to Dena, make sure you
include your name, and use correct spelling and grammar
in your e-mails. :)
- Two new great editorials by
Sam The Man Spencer have been posted in Enlightened
- Link Submissions will be open
from now until 1:00 PM (EST) tomorrow afternoon.
Please, for the love of cheese, only submit your link
if your site is actually *completed* and has *original*
content. Send link submissions (and only link
submissions) to this
- Before I post the new batch
of links, I want to direct you to
Mr. Popo's Palace. It's real fun!
- Got a few new Trunks items
as far as Computer Goodies are concerned! First
up, in Trunks WinAmp Skins- Page 6, 2 new
skins are available for download.
- I made 2 new odd looking Trunks Wallpapers. I think
they turned out ok... ^_^
- John has sent me yet 4 more
great Trunks Scans. There are some really
big ones in this batch that hope you'll enjoy!
- Updated Trunks POTW with
a new image.
- If you haven't done so already,
please check out VegettoEX's new "Staff
Thought" at DaizenshuuEX.
I think it's really worth reading. It's
probably the most throught provoking DBZ-related written
work I've read in awhile.
- The interview with Eric Johnson
should be taking place tonight, hopefully. Expect
the results of that to be up on the ToT...sometime after
that...*sweatdrops*. Maybe I'll have it all finished
up on the weekend.
- I suppose a good drool-fest
is in order for all you ladies out there, so today,
I've updated two image sections. Let's take a
look, shall we?
- 4 big and really pretty (and
images I've never seen before, to boot) pic have been
added to Trunks Scans.
Thanks John, for submitting these pics!
- In Trunks
Doujinshi- Page 2, both the Contributed
and Miscellaneous sections have new (and dang gorgeous)
additions. Speaking of doujinshi, I'll be getting
a whopping 4 new books for my birthday (which is in
a week, the day I go back to school, grr), so expect
to see a *lot* of scanning on my part. ^_^
- Muwahahaha! I got Adobe
Premiere working again (thanks to the help of a friend)!
Ahhh, I feel so fulfilled now that I made a new music
video! I'm doing something different
for a change, so I made a Sailor Moon mini-music video.
It's called "Faded"
and it's all about Seiya (from Three Lights)
trying to take Usagi for himself (I never liked Mamoru
to begin with). ^_^ I hope you liked it!
I definitely enjoyed doing something non-Dragonball
for a change.
- Thanks to Ultimate Kaiho,
the Trunks Desktop Icons actually work now.
Download the zip file to check 'em out.
- My video capture card worked
today for about....20 minutes (before subsequently konking
out on me again...naturally). I was able to make
3 new Trunks movie clips
before the thing started acting all weird.
I'll add more when it works again.
- I've been getting a lot of
requests asking what other characters made the Animerica
Fan Awards list, in addition to the Dragonball peeps.
To make things much easier, I typed out the entire list
of the Animerica Fan Awards- Fave Males/Females.
I especially like the top 10 males, cuz 9 out of 10
of them are some of my own personal favorites. ^_^
- Gah....after my video capture
was working for like, 2 days, nothing is going right
again. I can't make music videos cuz my Adobe
Premiere is funked up (ARG!!), can't make movie clips,
can't do didly squat. So, until I can get things
working again, I'll have to settle for posting this
- In the latest issue of Animerica
(Vol. 8, Issue 12), the results of the Fan Awards were
in, and boy oh boy, the men of DBZ made a killing in
the "Favorite Male Character" category.
This was quite a shock to me....Trunks was at #5 (out
of 25) characters! Wow, I'm amazed he made the
list at all. Here are all of the DBZ males
to make the list: #2- Son Goku, #3- Vegeta, #5-
Trunks, #14- Piccolo, #24- Gohan. Oh yeah, and
Bulma was #25 on the list for most Favorite Female Characters.
- Check out DaizenshuuEX for a great review
of the History
of Trunks DVD. If EX is in a good
mood, maybe he'll let me watch the DVD tonight ^_^;
- I made a Vash The Stampede
wallpaper. Go me, I'm in a Trigun
- I'll be renting the first
few volumes of Outlaw Star, so I'll put in my two cents
and ruin it for the rest of you before Cartoon Network
airs it :P
- Yes! Finally, I got
my video capture card working again. I whipped
up 2 movie clips
of Trunks today. One is when he says goodbye to
everyone and leaves to go back to the future, and the
other is when Baby Trunks takes his first steps!
I should have more clips up tomorrow.
- In the Trunks
Timelines section, a really cool explanation
of the Alternative Timelines Created By Trunks
has been made. Thanks go out to Bulma
733 for making this!
- All of the Trunks Wallpapers have been re-arranged
to look more organized, and 3 new wallpapers are now
- Huzzah, Happy New Year!
Hope you had a great one. Mine was spiffy, and
it's even better knowing I still have a few weeks off
before school starts ^_^ May as well get on with
- A lot of Contributed as well
as Miscellaneous Trunks
Doujinshi- Page 2 images have been posted.
- One of those new Doujinshi
images made it as this week's Trunks
POTW. That's probably one of my fave
doujinshi images of all time!
- Check out the Fan Manga section to read a new story called
- In Random
DBZ Fill in the Blank, a new winner and
sentence is now up.
- A new story has been added
to Trunks Cartoons allabout Dr. Gero wanting
to have a party.
- A couple of new quotes are
in up Sexuality of Trunks. Sub
- Well, the "neat surprise"
that I wanted to have ready didn't come off as planned.
Sorry, these things happen. But here is
some good news to make up for it! The Eric Johnson
interview should be up sometime this week (if I get
my ass in gear and work like mad). Stay tuned!
