Somehow Firefox recently updated itself to the latest version 3.6 from 2.0 and one of the new things Firefox has is a really quick/easy way to change the look of your browser window called Personas. A quick look at their gallery where people can upload Personas revealed some anime ones – the Totoro one is really nice but nothing really grabbed me so I decided to make some of my own. And because I figured some people might be interested, I thought I’d show them off and direct you to where they could be found.
I guess I owe at least a small explanation as to where I’ve been. My one sister and brother-in-law dragged me into tabletop pen-n-paper RPGs back in June and they like to host Dungeons and Dragons parties around the major holidays so their friends from across the state can drive over and play. They had planned a 3-day bash around New Years and I thought that my own character was going to be low to participate but about a week before Christmas we figured that if we worked at it then I’d be able to play with everyone else. So, long story short, I played a bunch of Dungeons and Dragons so when we got to New Years I could spend 3 days from dawn-to-dusk playing more DnD. And now that several days have passed since then, I’m starting to feel human again.
On top of that, I spent about a dozen hours helping my other sister, who’s home schooled, do the chemistry experiments she needed to do for her chemistry class.
And I got 5 new books for Christmas and I’ve read 3 of them already (over 900 pages total – which I don’t know if I should boast about 🙂 ) And finally, I had to watch anime as well. 🙂
So, I’m back.
The wallpaper making bug bite me again (writing series impressions of mediocre shows is so much fun 😉 ). For awhile I’ve been wanting to figure out a way to make wallpapers out of screen shots that could be used at all three sizes that I make wallpapers for and I think I hit upon a simple yet nice design. I hope you like them and I might have more wallpapers for other shows in the near future.
The awesomeness of the final televised episode of Bakemonogatari has been well documented already but there was one angle that I don’t think I’ve seen anyone pick up on. Namely, the night sky seemed to be on the minds of animators this season because it was featured in at least 3 different anime. There was maybe more but these are the three that I remembered.
The wallpaper making bug bite me again so I looked at the currently running shows for a good show to make wallpapers for. There’s a couple good candidates but Bakemonogatari is just too good of a show to pass up so here we are. I hope you like them and I might have more wallpapers for other shows in the near future.
Sometimes I think my subconscious is smarter then I am. Yesterday, I had the urge to make new Clannad wallpapers so I looked at what I had saved, realized there was a bunch of nice scans that I could use and whipped some up. Today, I wake up and think to myself that I should have done something for Mother’s Day here when I realized that I have a bunch of Clannad wallpapers that I made yesterday. 🙂
