General Info: A very complete Tin Nyanko Shrine. Includes info, downloads and fun!
Nominated By: AzN
How anyone could put together this much stuff in a Tin Nyanko shrine is
The information section is very complete, everything Nyanko is covered from
the anime to the manga to the musical! I especially liked the idea of the
"Goals" and "Words to know" section. After all, you can't talk about Nyanko
without mentioning what all Animamates were up to.
There are a lot of Nyanko related downloads to be had here as well. Includes
the usual pic galleries, plus desktop themes and other things in Puter Goodies.
Also included are a lot of fun entertaining sections like a very original
"Where's Tin Nyanko?" game, based on those Where's Waldo thingys.
As for suggestions, well Ann should check out some of the links on the
links page. A lot of them are out of date, and in real need of
(Wow that was being very picky Cere... but I couldn't find any other problems!)
I like this page. The look is clean and elegantly simplistic. Don't let
the lack of color (the page itself is almost entirely black and white)
throw you off, there is plenty of content here. The information page takes
a look at the various incarnations of Tin Nyanko from the anime to the manga
to the musicals. It also gives a lot of miscellaneous info like where the
name came from and information on the voice actress.
Once you're finished studying up on Tin Nyanko, go to the computer goodies
section and theme your computer to her. The humor section features a
fanfic that is a 'What if Eudial and Tin Nyanko met..?' story. It was pretty
funny. The fun and games section has some simple games that are amusing.
The 'Where's Tin Nyanko' game is a lot like find Waldo only this picture
is made up of sprites from the video games. This is an excellent page
considering how little attention Tin Nyanko got in the series.
There are only two things that I would suggest. The first would be to
encourage the author to create a couple more of the games to play. The
other thing is to do something more to differentiate text from links;
they appear almost the same in Netscape 4.6.
The page's set-up is really nice and simple even though the colors range from
white to grey to black and there is virtually no color at all except for some
of the icons. The info gets right to the point, highlighting the main points
of Nyanko's life. The only info problems I had was that in the "goal"
manga section SHOULD say "sailor crystals" because those are different
from the "star seeds"; translating "sailor crystals" to "star seeds" in
the manga would be a huge mistake, and that calling "manga" "Motionless
picture" isn't a definition, it's propaganda for Mixxzine. There are
profiles on the other Animamates; an image
galleries and multimedia; some computer stuff; some weird "humor"
things; and a couple of games.
General Info: An excellent Sailorpluto shrine
Nominated By: Lady Starra
Part of this very beautiful and informative Pluto site, was actually once
known as "The Dark Dome" by Serra Chase. Skeeter was given "Dark Dome",
which she redesigned and added to and has now reopened as "Hourglass".
On the inside, there are a lot of things Pluto to see and do. The
"Eyes" section includes a collection of Pluto downloads, including
Images, Multimedia files, skins, themes and fan art. It's nice how
the image gallery even includes a choice of navigating by thumbnails
or text descriptions. The info sections are in the "Scroll" and
"Words" section. The "Words" section is more of an opinion section,
but there are still a lot of things in there that information seekers
can read to learn more about pluto and the other senshi.
The only thing I think could really be improved here is the navigation
on the main index page. It might be nicer if there were some very
brief descriptions of what we can find in the "eyes", "words",
"scroll" and "gates" sections. Maybe something like "Downloads,
Opinion, Info, Site Info" respectfully. They could be added easily
under the text links on the main page. That would help people only
looking for certain items so they don't have to poke around the whole
site until they find what they want.
This is a nice looking Pluto shrine. The pages are well thought out
and informative. In fact, the amount of information here is staggering
with its diversity and depth. This page earns marks with me since
Pluto's strengths AND her weaknesses are pointed out and discussed in
an honest manner. Few shrine pages tell both sides of the story (though,
being a shrine, one would expect to read about the best parts of the
senshi in questions).
The graphics page did take a while to load using the thumbnails. The
thumbnails of some of the pictures were distorted due to them being
forced to dimension instead of sizing to scale. Fortunately, there is
a text link only version available for those who don't want to wait.
Overall, this is a strong site and a must see for any Pluto fan.
Nice set-up. I liked the fanart section the best.
There are a lot of downloads, so if you're looking for some Pluto
stuff to spice up your desktop, there's some neat stuff here.
There's actually a few minor problems with the info section. The first is
that "Two Faces" interjects a lot of opinion into the page; opinions
are good, but the page says that Pluto once and for all does NOT love
King Endymion, when in the manga it's hinted at. Also Setsuna
liking Chibi-usa does not automatically mean she has an "affection
for children". I would be more specific by saying in the anime, Pluto
doesn't love Endymion, and in the manga, it seems like she likes
children (her reactions to the children at the school suggest that).
"Moving Still" invents the idea that Pluto is resurrected by
Neo-Queen Serenity in the anime; and the manga section doesn't put
things in order so it might get confusing
(for example saying that Setsuna is 18 and then saying that she dies
in Act 23, when the order should be the other way).
"Words" is mainly an opinion section;
discussing why Pluto might be so underrated;
some dream dates; some views on the other senshi from
Setsuna's perspective, which is quite interesting; and fanfics.
People often write me and ask, "What can I make a site on? What's left that
hasn't been done?" In the past I have often told them: the villains! Not
a page on just one villain, but all of them! I don't think Emrys was one of
those people, but it's great that someone has gone and made a good, complete
site about all the villains.
A good part of this site is an entertaining, and down right funny look at
the villains. Check out the Troublemaker Yearbook in the Specials section.
Even though it is still a work in progress, there is already a lot of
funny bits in there. "Separated at birth?" is another funny gem. "Professor
Tomoe = David Bowie as Andy Warhol (Because the real Warhol is too scary
Getting down to business, there is a lot of serious information on the
villains as well including Fanart, Fanfiction, Voice Actors Page, Dic
Episode Guide, and Products page. Of course, there is also a character
guide section with good summary descriptions on just about very villain
including Bonne from the "Ami's First Love" special. The only guides
that have yet to be completed are the Sailor Stars villains and the
Amazon Trio and Amazoness Quartet. [Poke, poke... hey hurry up and finish
that one] For fans of other anime there is also a Bishonen tribute to
the males of several other anime.
Design-wise, this page is simple, but very nicely laid out. The only
suggestion I can see is maybe organizing the links on the index page
into a more logical order. Such as grouping all the serious sections
together, and all the entertainment sections together. Whoa I am being
picky this month!
[Cere slaps herself around a few times]
Wow, three shrine pages this month. Definitely check out the Troublemaker
Specials. The Teen dead-Beat was great, along with the Last Will and
Testaments and Top 10 Villain Fashion Faux Pas. There is a modest fanfic
and fanart archive related to the villains of the first two seasons of
Sailormoon. The voice actor/tress page features information on North
American and Japanese performers. (Including a list of shows that the
North American actors have been seen in). As a villain, I can only hope
that this page will someday expand to include the baddies from the later
There's a lot of good info on the villains (most of them anyway) with
complete monster listings. The seiyuu information is really good, with
all enemy seiyuu listed (and VAs for the dub too) with some of their
other roles (and yes, the owners do credit Hitoshi Doi as well as some
others). There's some nice product information on where to get books
and dolls of your favorite villains. The Troublemaker Specials section
is extremely innovative and cool; my only problem is that some of the
sections rely only on graphics with no ALT tags or text underneath the
pictures at all, so you'll have to deal with slow modems and Geocities
if you want to see everything. But if you wait it out, you'll get some
really good laughs. Check everything out here, it's all good. There's
also some "Adopt a Villain" things, an "Ask Esmeraude" section, a
"Question of the Month" area, and some fanfics and fanart. Over all
a really nice shrine to the villains; hopefully the sections that
aren't complete now will be up in the near future.
