Well it’s been a few hours so I figured I might as well update with a new album for the gallery. I’ve uploaded over 600 screenshots from the US DVD of Haibane Renmei. It’s a very good show if you haven’t seen it yet.

Hey guys, I’ve added pictures from The Girl Who Leapt Through Time in the gallery. These are screencaps from the HD DVD. Each image is 1440 x 810 so they would be perfect for wallpapers or vector traces.

You should really try to check this movie out. It came out in the states about a month ago for a short theater run. I’m not sure if it’s on DVD yet.

By the way, I uploaded 899 images :)

“4Chan”:http://www.4chan.org/ is currently “hosting a torrent”:http://www.4chan.org/torrent/4chan_The_Otakon_2006_Panel.torrent of a video of their Otakon 2006 panel. The panel features moot, shut and team 4chan. You get to see lots of people yelling out internet catchphrases, funny stuff.

On point of note from the video: 4chan is colocated by Cologuys, the same company that colocates “Megatokyo”:http://www.megatokyo.com/ and “Anime News Network”:http://www.animenewsnetwork.com/. 4chan is even in the same cabinet as those two websites, so if the 4chan servers explode, “ANN”:http://www.animenewsnetwork.com/ and “Megatokyo”:http://www.megatokyo.com/ go down as well.
