I also did some "Late Winter Cleaning" of the Links Section, and I'm sad to report that it looks like Maison Ikkoku sites are going the way of the DoDo bird. Let's say goodbye to The Image of Maison Ikkoku, Memories of Maison Ikkoku (two of my faves, the first inserted manga character drawings into photos, and the second had a great webmaster that wrote about his thoughts on MI really well), along with The World of Exodus, Be-da Anime's Maison Ikkoku (run by Yotsuya), U-Phi's Ikkoku-kan, and Chee-Kan's Maison Ikkoku Homepage. I'd like to thanks these websites for their dedication to the series, and the time they took in building their (too) short-lived websites.

February 3, 2002- I'm back!!! And I swear that this site will never go so long without and update again! Check the Midi page under the Music section for the next few months worth of updates, but that won't be the only thing to look forward to. The first new addition is "Yokan (Instruemental)".

April 11- I've changed quite a bit of the site around to reflect a big change in my life recently...whether thats positive or negative is for you to decide, I guess.
