anime - amatsuki - smile - summer

anime shows with few shiny icons

baking is taking suggestions for icons - NOT requests, but if peeps have wanted icons from a particular show/anime/celeb etc. they're free to leave a comment :)

As expected there are insane amounts of comments for Gundam 00 and Code Geass, but peeps have also mentioned Wallflower, Gundam Seed, Gundam Wing, Nodame Cantabille, Inuyasha, Soul Eater, DOGS, D.Gray-Man, Viewfinder, Hitman Reborn, Ouran, Gurren Lagann and Skip Beat...


I suggested Soul Eater as well, Oofuri, XXXholic (Watanuki \o/), Eyeshield21 (NEED a Hiruma icon >_<) and Totally Captivated (*_*) and stock icons.

Seeing Gundam Wing in the comments made me realise it's been frickin' forever since I saw a Duo or/and Heero icon in an icon post O_O Especially considering the sheer volume of fanart et all for the fandom.

While some peeps will prob never get enough of Gundam 00 and Code Geass icons, wish there was focus on the older/smaller anime fandoms too >_>

yet another post on your flist...

...on the new profile:
  • We will adapt.
  • It's the profile page, not the end of the world.
  • Still, 18+ pages of compaints aren't going to make it go away.
  • Both old and new versions had/have drawbacks. That's life lj for you.
  • At least the profile page is not a WIP of doom and its finally up.
  • Love it or hate it, life moves on.

Generally, I'm much happier with LJ admin/news/heads this year than in the past year or two. At least they're getting things done >_> Am sad the new userpic slots aren't available yet.

Personally I find the new profile more functional (stats, people vs comm filters, '(hidden)' etc.). Gives me an excuse to revamp the bio XD I just like it when sites do revamps (e.g. DeviantART)

ETA: grrliz has an AWESOME post about the new profile that's worth reading.

Son of ETA: If anyone wants a quick glimpse of what the initial beta looked like in July, here and here. You can tell it's definitely changed with time.

Grandchild of ETA: Dug up grrliz's userinfo revamp idea of 2006
