I’ve updated our background image for the Light contrast to reflect the latest anime season for Winter 2012.

Edit: Also, I’ve added in a Lightbox plugin for easier picture viewing! Try clicking on some pictures around the site (except the one below)!

Welcome readers, in all honesty I have be meaning to change the background for some time now. After deciding that it was ready, I still felt it was somewhat lacking. Something about it didn’t sit well with me; there was way too much going on within the image itself. It could have been too many colours, too many characters (although there’s just as many this time around), and too much of a contrast between the background and the assortment of characters. As well, I felt I had characters from all sorts of different series, and while that isn’t particularly bad, it makes much more sense to include characters from currently airing shows like our newest background.

Overall, I felt I did a better job with this background, but again it is still incomplete. There are some areas that need fine tuning, such as some of the edges and the actual size of the characters. The reason I uploaded it was because I wanted our viewers to experience something new alongside the new year; the sooner the better right? The characters are now all from the same season and many of you will recognize some, if not all from your favourite shows thus far. For those don’t know and are curious, starting at the top left and right:

Hachikuji Mayoi and Araragi Karen from Nisemonogatari,
Sakakibara Kouichi and Misaki Mei from Another,
Sonya and Oribe Yasuna from Kill Me Baby, and
Shirakiin Ririchiyo, Roromiya, Karuta, and Miketsukami Soushi from Inu X Boku SS.

For those that are interested, here’s the link to the old layout:

The characters featured in the old one were:
Elsie and Katsuragi Keima from Kami Nomi zo Shiro Sekai,
Tokagawa Sen and Matabei Gotou from Hyakka Ryouran Samurai Girls,
Ika Musume from Shinryaku Ika Musume!,
Yokoshima Naruko from Seitokai Yakuindomo,
Yami (Golden Darkness) and Celine from To-Love-Ru, and
Kotobuki Tsumugi and Hirasawa Yui from K-ON!.

And with that, please leave feedback on what think of the background. Do you like it? Is there something you don’t like about it? Have a suggestion? I am always open to comments and new ideas! Until next time!
