Sorry the site's been so empty lately. I've been going through some stuff, and between that, school, life, and occasional laziness, I haven't updated. I never forgot though, I think about it all the time, and have many plans on when (not if) I'm going to start back up again. Here's my current point of view on Pokemon, Winx, and Bakugan:
Pokemon, I'm still into. I lost my DS Lite along with my Pokemon White, and I'm still kind of reeling from it. I know it sounds selfish, but it was a huge link between me and Pokemon, and after that link being severed, I'm having trouble getting back into it. I have a Pokemon Black copy that I imported, but I can't play it since I lost my DS Lite and the DSi and 3DS have region-lock. I also have an English Pokemon Black copy, and I tried restarting it (and gathering up my old team), but it's hard starting from the beginning again. I also transferred many Pokemon into the Pokemon White, so I lost those too. I still have the anime, but missing one episode lead to missing the next, and before I knew it, I was many, many episodes behind. I plan on getting to them eventually, but I still haven't. Dumb, right? Yeah.
Winx...I'm not really sure of. I feel like I'm slowly growing out of it, but that's what happened to me years ago, and then I got back into it. When I start the site back up, I may need to get some help with posting Winx news. I also missed...either one or two of the specials, but I'm gonna try to keep up, especially with the 5th Season, which I am still excited for. :)
Bakugan...I don't mean to say this the wrong way, and no offense to people who still like it, but I basically hate it now. In my opinion, the first season was amazing. The second season was so-so. I tried watching the third, and I just couldn't. Now, I know what you're thinking. "How can you insult something you never tried watching!?" Yeah, I know. I watched the first episode, maybe a little less, maybe a little more, I can't remember. But, I still visit the aisle where Bakugan are in stores sometimes, and the Bakugan have gotten crazy. I played that one video game a bit, Bakugan: Defenders of the Core. Meh. The voice acting was weird, and I just didn't like it all that much. On the plus side, the battle system had potential. I hate how they scrap everyone except Dan, Marucho, and Shun, and jump for new characters. Runo was awesome, Alice was awesome, and Julie was awesome. Pokemon has gotten enough complaints from changing the girls, but changing half of the team every season is just crazy. I still like the old Bakugan, but I don't really like the new Bakugan. Maybe Fairy of Subterra still watches it and follows it, I'll have to ask her. THIS NEXT PART IS IMPORTANT. I'm not trying to offend anyone in anyway, this is only my opinion, and you are free to disagree. If you want, you can discuss in the comments. I haven't been keeping up with my email at all, but if I see a comment discussing the new Bakugan and what that person's opinion is, I will be glad that someone decided to discuss it, and I would be happy to join the discussion. However, be aware that there is a fine line between disagreement and not accepting another person's opinion.Short explanation: It's just my opinion, don't get upset.
Now, about the writers. Grace and I haven't talked too much lately, when I start the site back up, I'll have to ask her if she wants to continue writing. Fairy of Subterra and I are commonly chatting and sending emails, and I assume that she would be happy to continue writing. I'm not so sure about Phoebe. I haven't checked Winx-Fairies in quite a while, but I do know that she has a lot on her mind, and has had to get ready for a lot of things. We rarely talk, but I do know how to contact her. We talk once a month or so. Angela from Angela's Winx World and I have become friends, and I would be glad to ask her if she would like to write. (I don't think she was ever a writer on here...) "UnownReporter" (I can't remember if his real name was said on here) has his own Pokemon website now, and seems to have been busy recently. I can't remember the URL of his Pokemon website, so I'll try to ask him later, and put it up. Robin and I haven't been talking much, I'm not sure if she would continue writing or not. The same for Bloomerica. I'm also not sure about gamercatgirl, but if she did continue writing, she would probably write only about Winx. I'm not sure, I would have to ask her.
I'm pretty sure that's all I have to say. I hope I didn't kill this website. :(
Okay, so the voice actresses for Flora, Stella, and Tecna have officially been revealed! Voicing Flora is Alejandra Reynoso, Stella is Amy Gross, and Tecna is Morgan Decker. Apparently, Reynoso is from several short films, such as Desert Rose, and Gross has guest starred Moesha and Saved by the Bell: The New Class.
Also, the voices for Daphne, Stormy, and Skye (Yes, they've started spelling his name with the "e" at the end.) have been revealed! Kimberly Brooks is voicing Stormy, Elizabeth Gillies (Jade on "Victorious") has Daphne, and Matt Shively (Ryan from "True Jackson VP") is our new Skye! Interesting choices, no?
Anyone else curious about who the rest of the cast (Trix, Specialists, etc.) will be?
This picture of Roxy is found in an official Winx game launched in Russia. It's pretty cool to know that Rainbow actually made the Enchantix design, but we've already seen fan art similar to this design. Rainbow claims that this is their creation.
This image is not fan art, it was made with images found in a Russian game entitled "Meeting Stella" (direct translation from Russian to English in Google Translate). In the game, each of the Winx have their own unique poses, and you can also change their outfits. There's almost two thousand items in the game, like footwear, clothes, and transformations, and none of the items are fan art.
There's still doubt whether this is an official image or fan art, since we've all seen images similar to this one. Who is the creator of this transformation? Is it Rainbow, or is it a fan?
It's pretty hard to imagine a company like Rainbow using an image that doesn't belong to them. No matter who made it, Rainbow gave legitimacy to it and made it an official game.
This is the link to the original fan art that's similar to this image: Roxy's Enchantix We'll see if this image appears in any magazines or comics, then we can confirm if this image is her official Enchantix. Maybe it really is her Enchantix, and Rainbow copied a fan art design. Who knows? Anything can happen.
According to the Updated Winx Club Trailer, Nickelodeon will premiere the one hour special on June 27 at 8/7c. You do realize that's only one month away, right?
One. Month. Away.
Anyone else insanely happy and excited right now?!
