From time to time, I get asked about how I capture images and stuff like that. Having responded individually to people's talk pages, I decided to write a guide to help those wanting to capture images for inclusion in Bleach wiki and other wikis. I will also include some tips on gif making but the gif making
1. The first thing to remember is that the image you capture can only be as good as the source from which you capture it. For early episodes of Bleach, the source is rather limited but for later episodes of Bleach the best source is the video that comes from Crunchyroll. Of course, in order to get subtitle free screenshots, you have source "Raw" videos and/or the english dubbed videos. Nyatorrent and AnimeAccess are good places to find B…

sigh I am going to be lazy that just copy and paste what crystaldawn posted on FLOL
For those who don't pay attention to general anime news, the Tokyo legislature just passed a bill, Bill 156, that will give the government sweeping powers of censorship over manga and anime. Series that contain too much violence, sexual situations of any kind, romantic relationships between people who wouldn't legally be able to marry (ie siblings), and homosexuality will be required to be sold as 18+ material.
What does this mean for us?
Bleach hits many of those stipulations, particularly the violence parts. Not only Bleach, but several other Shounen Jump series (and shounen AND shoujo series in general) are looking at a lot of trouble. Since the target audienc…

By now you all must be familiar with Crunchyroll, but just in case you are not, Crunchyroll are the official internet streamers of Bleach, Naruto and many, many other animes. Apparently, they are doing quite well in their niche market too.

Having made a profitable foothold in the anime broadcasting market. It seems Crunchyroll is trying to move into hosting manga as well. To that end, they have gone into bed with an e-publisher.
You are no doubt all aware that a consortium of publishers have forced the doors of OneManga, Mangahelper and Mangatoshokan to remove Bleach and other manga. Mangafox …Read more >
Today is Gin's birthday and I for one celebrated it by writing depressing poetry. So I thought I would share and provide a place for all the Gin obsessed fans of wiki to wish Gin a happy birthday! So...
Happy Birthday Gin! I hope there is still more to your story but Kubo is probably done with you. Bleach won't be the same without you!Read more >
Thanks goes to Lia for this piece of news.

It pains me to announce that this is the last week of manga reading on One Manga (!!). Manga publishers have recently changed their stance on manga scanlations and made it clear that they no longer approve of it. We have decided to abide by their wishes, and remove all manga content (regardless of licensing status) from the site. The removal of content will happen gradually (so you can at least finish some of the outstanding reading you have), but we expect all content to be gone by early next week (RIP OM July '10).
So what next? We're not really sure at this point, but we have some ideas we would like to try out. Until then, the One Manga for…
