I was going to write a dev update post today and went looking for a Maho picture to use and remembered this scene from Girls Und Panzer Das Final part 1 where Maho and Erika are on a video call. I wanted a nice screenshot of Maho using a computer or something as it was a technical post, but I got distracted by this scene and it really made me think how much is hidden in this scene. Just two screenshots are required.

Erika_das_final_1_Screenshot_20220517_043239.png

On the surface, we have Erika asking "Is it really ok for me to be the new commander?" and Maho replying with "Don't fret over the results. You should find your own Senshado." Ok, pretty simple right? Erika has a bit of self doubt, Maho is reassuring her, lets get on with the Tankery?

But no. I don't wanna.
I am a huge fan of Maho, and her lack of presence in Das Final really saddens me (this is literally her entire appearance in part 1 - but don't skip Das final, its still great to watch). I know I'm an idiot, but I actually got some tears in...

Welcome to my new blog!

Picture: Maho eating Pocky. Why? Because awesomeness.

This was supposed to have all of the old posts imported from Wordpress by now and look nice and all that, but I'm lazy, and I've been distracted by other things, and <insert more excuses here>, so it hasn't happened yet. Why am I writing this then? Because I wanted to get this alive and leaving a random post about Chocotto Sister being available on a video library that doesn't exist anymore as the first post seemed a bit odd.

I felt like writing, and so here I am, writing. Why does that matter? Because I have not felt like writing a random blog post in years, maybe as long as 5 years, maybe its more (if I had actually done that whole blog import thing I was supposed to have done I could answer that), and the point is I don't want to waste that feeling or enthusiasm.

So what is the deal with this new blog then? Well actually it is the forum. I have basically made a hidden sub forum, taken it off the...

Dear Anime Fans,
When I was offered the chance to take over FTV, I did so with the hope and aim to bring it back to a thriving community, like it was back when I joined. Fansub was always something special to me, it helped me find all the anime that I love and was a great community with wonderful people. I wanted to preserve it, and keep it going.

I have operated Fansub.TV for around 6 years at this point, and MATV for even longer, and as each year passes the forum gets quieter and quieter. I keep saying "lets give it one more year" in the hope that I can revive it. Last year an old member returned to us and made the most amazing effort in trying to bring life back into the community, sadly the real world has kept them busy for a while, and it is now apparent the community has declined even further.

Some people have been very critical of my leadership and operation of Fansub, one going as far as saying I killed it. All I can tell you is that I genuinely tried...

The blogs.fansub.tv service is looking rather dead, with only 2 blogs being updated in the past 7 years (!!) it is pretty obvious all of you have abandoned your blogs.
These abandoned blogs are just becoming a giant spam trap, today yet another blog got hit by the spammers, and we now have some 300,000+ comments to remove on that blog alone. This requires a massive amount of work to manually delete them, and it is not fair to put this work onto FTV staff.

Therefore, I believe it is time to shutdown the blog service. I don't like removing content from the internet, therefore:

I am giving all you blog owners one last chance to come forward!

The options are:
1). Keep your blog as is, BUT you must manage it and the comments. You don't have to make regular posts, just make one (so I know you updated it) and look after it.
2). We transfer your blog either to an individual wordpress one or into the main site under the editorial / frontpage (contact us on forum/irc/pm...

Assault Lily's early 4th series, the leader of the ashes, `Matsunaga Special Squadron` Captain [Matsunaga Yui] has renewed the head parts including facial expressions to new modeling [ver. Renewed as .1.5]!

The catgirl-type head accessories that were well received in the first edition are still alive!

Uniforms are only allowed to be worn by students who belong to the special forces [special forces] among Sagami girls. The red uniform worn by Matsunaga is for the captain.

The three-stage transformation type CHARM [Trigraph], which has a two-chome pistol as its design concept, can be transformed into gun mode and blade mode, respectively. Furthermore, by combining the two machines, it becomes a partisan (long sword) mode.

The deformation and coalescence mechanism is rare among many CHARMs, and although it is powerful, it is difficult to handle.

Winding Down of Fansub TV Services

I think it is about time to face reality, FTV / MATV has been practically dead for some time now, and despite my best efforts to try to find anyone willing to help or even write posts, no one is interested.

Therefore, I will start to close some of the site down, starting with items that are the least used and that have a financial cost to them.
At present, the first items I am looking at will be:

Karaoke Monster
Fansub TV blogs*

*Although I do not pay for the blog hosting, these are kindly paid for by Daft, I think it is somewhat unfair for him to keep paying for something no one has used in years, however I will consult with him first.

If there is anyone who has any interest at all in the site, now would be a good time to contact me.

Many thanks to everyone who has contributed to FTV and MATV over the years, without all of you, we would not have made it this far.

Bringing back the FTV tradition of randomness and frontpage place holder posts, here is a quick post for week 3 of February.
Would anyone like some game content on FTV? Let us know! I'm currently looking at an Aura Kingdom private server as well as a FS19 dedicated server. Reply to the forum post if interested.

In the meantime, have some Colonel Failure playing Farming Simulator 2019. Why? Well why not, Farm sim is good and the Colonel is funny.

Welcome to yet-another-update of the website, this time the change is to our front page. Over the history of the site we have had many different designs, from anime updates to the pulse system and the Necromendations. The past 5 years we have been in a bit of limbo, with a mix of broken parts of the pulse system and hastily placed Crunchyroll updates, it has not always been ideal. Therefore, I am pleased to announce our new article system where by contributors can write and publish articles right to the website front page, and not just limited to a single page like before.

It is my hope that this can be the new home for the creativity that once brought you the J-Zine, with interesting articles from many of the talented members of our community.

If you have an interesting idea for an article, a review, a recipe or even a story of a journey to a far off land, and feel like writing for The Front Page, then please send me a message for details, or post a comment below.
