Hello everyone, and welcome to the (second) grand opening of Magic’s Detective Agency! MagicBox here, and I’m really excited to finally be getting this fansite project back off the ground.
Basically, for those of you who kept up with my FreeWebs version of this site, I hit a snag when I realized that the amount of pages/space allotted to my free account had nearly reached its limit, which kind of gets in the way when you’re trying to update a site that focuses on, y’know… posting content. I decided to take time to think about a new approach, but as I started thinking, laziness set in, and before I knew it over a year had passed since my last update. I received a few offers from people kind enough to let me use their own sites to continue posting (and a big “thank you” to those of you who did), but I refused because I really wanted to keep my website as “mine” as possible. Now, don’t get me wrong, FreeWebs has a great site-builder and I really learned a lot from it. It was really just me being too cheap to pay for more space and too stubborn to partner up with other sites.
So now I’m giving WordPress a try since it seems to be the cool thing to do. I really like it so far. I have WAY more available space allotted to my account, and because this is a blogging site, I can dedicate each post to a different episode comparison (images and all) without having to worry about any page limit restrictions. That’ll end up looking way better than the old site, where I just uploaded the comparisons as ugly, sloppy HTML files.
Now that I’ve explained my (overly) long absence, I’m looking forward to uploading content again. I really have been wanting to dedicate a site to this series for a long time now, and I think it offers something that you can’t find anywhere else on the net! All fans of Detective Conan and Case Closed are welcome here, and I think every kind of fan will find something to enjoy.
The main attraction, of course, are the dub/sub comparisons I have provided for the series. I’ll be transferring the existing ones over from my FreeWebs site, and they’ll each be receiving makeovers! I plan on incorporating image comparisons and an overall better look than the lame HTML documents I used before, and my goal is to make everything look as good as the movie comparisons I did for the old site. The blog entries for the episodes/movies will be archived in the “Comparisons” section for easy access, where I’ve divided the episodes up by FUNimation Entertainment’s “season” listings. You guys should even be able to comment on stuff now, too, so it’ll be really fun to receive feedback!
I plan to get the existing episodes and feature films up ASAP, and then I’ll move on with new comparisons. To those of you who have stayed patient, I cannot thank you enough. I’d pretty much completely vanished from the net (even from the forums I used to post on), so I know it was mean to promise content and never deliver. The layout of the site is still being tweaked, so please forgive the unprofessional layout and presentation. I’ll try to have everything up quickly so you can all explore and have some fun!
Thanks to WordPress for the blog! Welcome, readers new and old!
