"I'd like to thank the Academy, and my fellow nominees..."
Let's see, where to start? There are so many people who have helped me that I finally decided to take a page just to thank them all.
Let's see. Well, this website is kind of a three parter, anime, web design, and art. So I'll try to remember all the people to thank in all of those areas.
Big thanks go to my mommy, Kathy, and my stepdad, Fred, for supporting my anime addiction by buying me plush cats that were originally in crane machines in Japan but somehow cost $120 on Ebay. But, most importantly, they paid for the space on Certihost (before I left), and the domain registration on doster. They helped make this site what it is now.
Major thanks also go to Nick, who provided me with free space for a while for both CSC and Avatars after Certihost dicked me over. He really saved this site back then and if I took a hundred years to do it, I couldn't thank him enough.
I'd like to thank Pete for getting me started on anime in the first place with Vampire Hunter D and Fatal Fury. I'd like to thank Trish for introducing me to the beauty that is Sailor Moon, and letting me see all 200 episodes, subbed and everything.
I'd like to thank my dad for not making fun of anime and for treating it like a serious genre, and always looking at--and criticising--my artwork. I'd like to thank all of the people who have put my art up on their websites, and all the artists who have given me artworks for mine. I'd like to thank all the artists on Anime Fanartists Online--that mailing list has grown far beyond my expectations. I'd like to thank all of the site's patrons, too--hopefully, a few of you are repeat visitors. ^.^
Lastly, I'd really, really like to thank Hime-chan. She has been there for me in every aspect; I've told her stuff I haven't told the friends I have in school. She's forever sending me stuff, whether it be art she's done herself, or ones that she's found, cool websites, neat music videos, and manga as birthday gifts. ^.^ She's given me artistic critique and helped me figure out stuff for my layouts. She put up a lot of my fanart back when I was just starting out. She's become my sister-siteowner and one of my closest friends. Princess, I'm so happy I met you.
