Prof. Kanji Nishio and Society for Righting Characteristics of Tsukurukai

I made a new banner for this website. I pasted it to Des Liens de Emmanuel Chanel. The banner used before is written my former handle but deleted for my renewal of this website. So… now you can use that when you link my home page.

I found an error of the link to Society for Righting Characteristics of Tsukuru-Kai on the links page. If you use the Japanese environment, you don’t find error. But with others, you can see that it’s replaced of The Web Dayly by Prof. Kanji Nishio.

I Added the categories of Nodame Cantabile and of Kurosagi on my Links

I watched Kurosagi and a movie of Detective Conan on Sunday. And this movie reminds me of Nodame Cantabile, as I posted an entry. So I link these 13 websites about them.

Detective Conan

Kurosagi

Nodame Cantabile

Kurosagi the movie

I watched Kurosagi the movie (映画 クロサギ) today, too.
Kurosagi is originally a manga serialization by Kuromaru and Takeshi Natsuhara on Weekly Young Sunday (週刊ヤングサンデー). It was made into a TV drama from 14 Apr. to 23 Jun. in 2006 and the movie is the sequel of the drama.

Kurosaki, the hero of it is a swingler burning up only cons. In TV shows, he has clients in all cases but in the original, not in all. In the original, as he does in TV shows, he buys information from Katsura, the fixer of swingler society. Katsura is the planner of fraud leading Kurosaki’s father to family suicide. So Kurosaki, himself is a victim of fraud and he’s become one for revenge on all cons but he needs Katsura.

In all versions, Kurosagi looks a sort of Mission Impossible since all episodes show interesting tricks. The episode of Kurosagi the movie, too. It is based on the original serialization, too, as the all episodes of the TV drama version. One swingler’s con smashed up many corporations to damage Japanese economy itself. So Katsura whip him by Kurosaki.

I’d read the original episode when I watched the movie but probably you can enjoy much more without reading it.

Detective Conan: Full Score of Fear reminds me of Nodame Cantabile

Today, I watched Detective Conan: Full Score of Fear (名探偵コナン 戦慄の楽譜), which is the movie of Detective Conan in 2008, this year. Detective Conan is originally a mystery manga serialization by Gosho Aoyama (青山剛晶) on Shonen Sunday (少年サンデー) and the anime based on it. I like mystery. So I watch every movie of Detective Conan.

One big theme of the movie is classical music. So it reminds me of Nodame Cantable (のだめカンタービレ), the live drama based on the honomymous manga by Tomoko Ninomiya (二宮知子) since it was a drama about classical music on air in 2006. I watched its repeat several times in 2007. I hear that it influenced the popularity of classical music in Japan. So I felt the possibility that it influenced Detective Conan, too.

Updated this WordPress to version 2.5

Seeing the alert of update, I downloaded WordPress 2.5, the latest version and upgraded this blog. I could do it without troubles, although I forgot to delete all non-configuration files of the old version.

Upgrading from any previous WordPress to 2.5:

  1. Delete your old WP files, saving ones you’ve modified.
  2. Upload the new files.
  3. Point your browser to /wp-admin/upgrade.php.
  4. You wanted more, perhaps? That’s it!

Updated Le Salon de Emmanuel Chanel, my phpBB forum

I updated Le Salon de Emmanuel Chanel to the newest phpBB.

Today, I got very many spam registrations on Le Salon de Emmanuel Chanel. So I visited phpBB2 Japanese Support Forum (phpBB2 日本語サポートフォーラム) and I found some MODs for captcha. But visiting phpBB.com, I found that phpBB 3.01 is released. So I sought its Japanese version since we always have own Mojibake problem about iso-2022-jp mails. And I found Ocean Labo at Topics of Olympus / phpBB3 (Olympus / phpBB3 の話題).

Added some links listed on my RSS reader

I have an account of Iza! (イザ!), the official blog community of the Sankei Shimbun Newspaper (産経新聞) for commenting on some blogs including some official blogs of its newswriters. So I have the hosted RSS reader of my Iza! page. I’ve added 43 RSSs on it but I haven’t linked all on my links page since I haven’t checked what the parent websites of all are. Although these are not all, I addded those blogs to my links. At this time, I linked mainly blogs about Korea.

I deleted the dead link of Case Closed (April 6th, 2008)

“Case Closed” is the American title of “Detective Conan”, the most famous Japanese mystery manga and animation of Japan. Its first season was on air in USA. So it had the official website.
Seeing that, the names of characters are changed in the American version. Shinichi Kudo is Jimmy Kudo in it and Ran Mouri is Rachel Moore. What do you think of it?
And I hear that it was on air at night since the anime includes many homicides in context. So children there couldn’t watch it.

I added “Japanese Medieval History Archives” to my links page.

I added Japanese History Archives (日本中世史アーカイヴズ) to my links page. It’s a website by a circle researching history. And the editor-in-chief is Lector Shigeo Hosokawa (細川重男). I found that website by seeing Japanese History Archives Web Board (日本中世史アーカイヴズ掲示板), its web board. Continue reading
