Kanji to Romaji Converter

I’m lazy… really lazy. So, to stop keeping a tab of romaji.org opened each time I start my browser – I wrote a little app in AIR to ease me the trouble. The app is absolutely free and will work till romaji.org dies or changes their layout and API ( *`ω´) till then – feel free to use it as you wish (I use it for my Japanese lessons). Note that romaji.org may not be that accurate and the output looks scary, but it’s still the best kanji to romaji service I managed to find on the interwebs.

Hayate no Gotoku OP or “when I learned to use petals in karafx”

Show: Hayate the Combat Butler/Hayate no Gotoku
Group: Static-Subs & Eclipse Fansubs
Title: Hayate no Gotoku
Performer: KOTOKO

Comment: This is my one of my most famous (or so my naivete says) karaoke effects. The spinning petals were inspired by DeathWolf’s work on the logo (you can see it in the video) and the transition effect was a random discovery of randomly rotated letters. This thing was done in the times of automation 3 in plain lua (learning the templates is PITA).

P.S. there’s the first ending song of Hayate no Gotoku on my vimeo profile. located here: Hayate no Gotoku ED. It’s a miscut from the mkv encode. I’ll reupload it properly this week. It was my first attempt to use particles in a karaoke fx.

jrock band logos banner generator

so, I’ve decided to do a spinoff of h3xStream’s band logos banner http://www.last.fm/user/PhiL666/journal/2008/07/29/23au42_band_logos_banner for myself, though everyone is welcome to use it on their profile/site aswell. there’s no limit of badges generated (though I’ll add that in the future with the option of deleting the unused ones). my banner generator is transparent-only – i.e. a png with transparency. I’ve made it support any color, though for now I’m limiting the support to classic black, white and gray. please post here suggestions and links to band sites if they’re not in the list yet (so I could extract the logos).
