Thousand Arms custom artwork [06 Jun 2013|11:59pm]

Hey guys.

Not sure if anyone still checks livejournal, but I figured I'd give the heads up anyway. I recently did a series of upgrades to the victory sprites from Thousand Arms if anyone hasn't seen them on my tumblr yet.


You can see the full line-up as well as each of them individually all there on the tumblr. Hope you like them! They were fun to do (took a lot of work, though)

Just Popping In [22 Aug 2012|01:33am]

[ mood | blah ]

Hey Lovelies!

It's your residential Jeala, just popping in to say hi! I've recently started up a new Thousand Arms file, and I've started a contest to try to get a kiss on each date. It's going pretty well. . . except when the game gave me two crap answers when dating Wyna. Not very fair! Has anyone else been playing TA, or is it completely dead?

I've found some amazing fanart over on DeviantART. I'll at least share that as well.
Under Here!Collapse )

Take care, everyone!

Translation Updates [04 Feb 2011|09:44pm]

Hey guys! Translation updates!!! Thousand Arms is back on track (kinda) with a new page posted. :D

So I know livejournal is going the way of the wasteland, and blogspot is becoming the new thing to check regularly. So I've created a blog that I'll use to post any new manga pages or other translations in a more convenient way. So virtual bookmark that baby and head on over to check it out.

Plus, I figured this makes it easier to post comments on specific pages and whatnot. :)



P.S. Sorry if you see this a bazillion times in the friend feed. I'm just trying to get the word out to everyone.

New comic and announcement [22 May 2010|05:36pm]

Hey gang,

I just posted this week's newest comic scanslation. I thought I'd go ahead and also let you know that I'm going to just leave the newest upload at the front of the album from now on so that it makes it easier for you to tell when I've added something new, instead of having to go to the last page of the album.

I'll put them all in order once I finally translate the full book and probably also put up a zip file for download with all the pages in there, at full 300dpi resolution, too.

New manga pages being added [27 Apr 2010|11:12pm]

Hey everyone,

I just realized how horrible I've been with keeping up on these comics. My laptop screen died a while back and threw me out of whack, and then I just had so many projects piled up that this one got put on hold for a while.

But cry no more! The return of the Thousand Arms comics is at hand! I'm going to try to upload *at least* one page a week if not more. If you notice a decline in new submissions to the photobucket, leave me a comment on here so I pick up my slack.


For those who didn't know, I've uploaded pages 44, 45, and 46 since yesterday.

Sorry for the lack of activity(and posting to both communities) [10 Nov 2009|11:32pm]

To all those who have been anxiously checking my photobucket for new manga translations, I apologize for the hold-up. Things have been crazy lately in my personal life, and I haven't had much time to sit down and concentrate on it. Have hope, though, for I do believe I will be adding at least one page to the gallery tonight before I allow myself to go to bed. I'm going to try to make it a force of habit to do one page each day, or 7 per week with the possibility of multiple pages on any one day.

So keep checking! I promise I haven't stopped; I just had to take a brief break from all the mayhem. Thanks, and I hope you've been enjoying them!

You should keep this Thousand Arms community alive by posting your thoughts on any of the comics so far. Which ones you thought were really funny, which ones you thought brought up good points, which ones you absolutely loved the art style, etc. I like hearing fans' thoughts!

Thousand Arms 4-panel comics [17 Oct 2009|12:25pm]

Hey, everyone (whomever that may be since our numbers are fading)!

I've started back to translating the 4-panel manga comics. After taking a long break when I finished the translation of the color comics back in the summer, I'm finally back on track with the black and white ones.

I'm updating as I go along, so feel free to check the site on a regular basis for updates. I just posted page 23 a few minutes ago, and I have a pile of scans I'm getting ready to work my way through after lunch. I hope there's somebody else out there who can enjoy these. I want so badly to share it with the fans and keep Thousand Arms alive.

Feedback is great! Let me know if you like what I'm doing. Heck, even if you want to comment on a favorite comic thus far, I'd love to hear what everyone's thinking. Enjoy!


[And, sorry, if this popped up twice for you. I don't know which of the two Thousand Arms communities is used more frequently, so I decided to post on both.]

FanArt, Hoooo! [16 Oct 2009|07:51pm]

I joined a forum for the website, SpriteStitch.com" back in June. The most recent challenge they had was a silhouette challenge. I decided to do a submission with Jeala and The Dark Master, and I thought I'd share it here once I was finished!

Clikey clickey!Collapse )

(Sorry if you see this twice. D:)

If anyone is interested, I have the Thousand Arms trading cards up for bid on ebay.

There are two different lots, one lot with 45 cards and the other with six extra metal cards. These cards are very hard to find for Thousand Arms fans, so good luck to anyone who wins them.

Lot 2 (51)

Thousand Arms Manga translation project [07 Apr 2009|02:09pm]

Hey, everyone. I don't know if anyone checks this thing anymore, but I figured I'd post this for the lone few people who still haven't forgotten about a game very near and dear to my heart. So I bought one of the Thousand Arms manga 4-panel comic books back in 2004, and I finally got around to scanning and translating it into English for those who are interested in it. I've started posting them to my photobucket account if anyone wants to check them out. I don't know how often I'll update or get around to translating more, but I'll keep posting notifications on here if I get any feedback to prove there are still living souls out there interested.

More PSP news [13 Apr 2007|10:30pm]

[ mood | blah ]

Update from last entry about the PSP:

Playstation Network: PS3

I wasn't aware of it, but it looks like you can only download PSX games to your PSP though a PS3. The smart thing would have to do this service though the PSP or the PC first, or they could be working on them. I don't know if they will or not.

I sure do hope that Thousand Arms makes it to the service later on. If it ever does, I'm promoting it like crazy. Hey, I'm a Takehiko Ito fanatic.

You Tube used to only have one video clip from Thousand Arms, but it looks like someone is uploading tons of videos due to a playthrough. Man, now I want to play it again.
Search: Thousand Arms

And uh...*pokes fandom with a stick* I do have a cat named Meis. Anybody guilty of doing the same? And people asking where you came up with the name?

Thousand Arms on the PSP? [25 May 2006|05:35pm]

[ mood | jubilant ]

According to the Official Sony Playstation magazine and other places, Sony is going to make PS1 games downloadable for the PSP in the future.
It's still not known what sort of system of pay that Sony is going to use for PS1 games on the PSP, though.

But there might be a chance that if Thousand Arms is up for download we might get some new fans into the fold. Or that we might end up playing it all over again on our PSPs.
So if you have any buds that have wanted to play the game, but haven't been able to get a hold of copy: Go start informing about this now!

Voice Actors Japanese and English [04 May 2006|01:50pm]

Does anybody have any information on the voice actors from the Japanese and English versions of the game?

So far, I've been only able to find the following information:

Lia Seargent: Kyleen Nelphe
Amanda Winn Lee: Sodina Dawnfried
Gary Gillett: Bearing and Wire

Kappei Yamaguchi: Meis Triumph
Kawasumi Ayako: Palma
Tomoko Kawakami: Sodina Dawnfried

Any help will be appreciated.

What are your ideas of a TA sequel? [04 May 2006|12:35pm]

[ mood | curious ]

*Poke, poke, at the lj comm, poke, poke*

I know, I know Takehiko Ito told me that Morning Star Studio, I mean Zega Pain, won’t be doing another Thousand Arms game. And I’m not sure if Red Company still exists or not.
But what are your ideas/thoughts about another Thousand Arms game?

Would you want it in the past, before the Emperor went insane? Just to see what the Moon and the Clan of Darkness was like? And the events leading up to the first game?
After the end of the first game?
Or a game that’s in the far future of the world? Just to see how the elemental spirits have fared over the years?

I'll like to hear possible plot ideas for any of these.

And I’m thinking of taking on the Thousand Arms Game Script once Finals are over. Because there’s not a lot of info (FAQs) online and the American Guide Book lacks certain info that I need for a wiki I’m working on.

Created a TA FF.Net forum [02 Feb 2006|10:51pm]

I'm the first to create a Thousand Arms forum for the Thousand Arms section on Fanfiction.net.

The Boyzby Spirit Forge and Anvil
Description: Need game help? Want to talk about certain characters or the plot? Tips to fighting off writer’s block and needing a spirit smith to work as a beta? Then you've come to the right place! Come in and discuss about the RPG Dating Sim, Thousand Arms!

However, FF.Net is not making the forum show up on the main page for the Thousand Arms fics (I know, there's only 16...).

Also is anybody interested in making drabble (100 or 500 word count) challenges or one shots?
Anything to get the fandom going?

Thousand Arms Tattoo. [24 Jan 2006|08:26am]

Insignia of DianovaCollapse )

Woot. That hurt so bad. But when it was done, I threw a fist in the air and said, 'Woot, I luff my Thousand Arms!' And everyone there laughed.

[ mood | chipper ]

The Thousand Arms Rating Commuinity, ta_rating is open! Please join and post your surveys! ^_^ Currently we have stamps for all the main characters and I'm hoping we'll get the rest of the characters (i.e Marion) done as soon as possible! Come on down and have fun! ^___^

[ mood | curious ]

:O Hey, hey, guys! I don't know if I've introduced myself, so my name's Sachi! ^^ I've been into Thousand Arms for quite a while now. My friend Sheila got me absolutely hooked on it three years ago, and it's still going strong. :D

Anyway...I did have a question. :O Would anybody be interested in perhaps making a Thousand Arms rating community? If there isn't one already, that is. :3 Admittedly, it's a rather obscure game, but hey! That's never stopped anyone from making a rating community before! :O

SO! If it would be of interest, tell tell tell! ^^ I think it'd be super fun, and it's always neat to be able to see which character you're like from stuff like that. :D

Book listing... [20 Dec 2005|04:44pm]

Just wanted to get this community kicking again.
This is a listing of Thousand Arms books. There's some holes, however, as many of the Japanese books are out of print or hard to find on the web. Any help is welcomed.

LJ cutting time: TA book listCollapse )

On another note: I created a Takehiko Ito Community named black_point. Any input would be nice, since it's my first time managing a community. It's closed for now, until I set up rules.
