Hey guys!  leira invited me to post about it, so here I go.

We've got a Dragon Knights club over on DeviantArt, here!  We've got fanart, fanfic, cosplay, if you've got a DA just hop on over, join us, and you can submit work too!

Right now we've got a Valentine's Day contest going on, and while the entries are due next week, our first prize for this month is a free commission from club leader Kojika and some free Dragon Knights bookmarks!

You know you want this!
Alternatively, we'll also be hosting another contest in the month of March.   It's like an every month/other month event.

There's also a tiny, teeny, veeeeeery small chance of a DK Club RamenCon meet up this year in late summer!  It turned out by coincidence both me and Kojika will probably be heading up there anyway, so XD;;  But that's totally like... I have mentioned it to her and we have not moved forward from that.  If we can gather enough interest early enough we could even make it an Ohkami panel!  The con is late August around Chicago.

Hello, everyone!

Don't let the title scare you, it's mostly just for recognition purposes since I'm a terrible contributer to this community these days. ):

Anyway, I just wanted to let everyone know that I updated a couple things in the community info/settings.

♔ I've unchecked the box for minimizing the community's inclusion in search engines in the hopes of letting more people know we're here. If it causes trouble, I'll switch it back.

♔ The community email is now changed. Since I made this journal on an account I haven't used since 2004, the email has long since been dead, so, uh, sorry if you sent anything to it. I didn't realize that it was set to that account.

♔ I have also updated the info page! It no longer has the typos and wording of a 16 year old (my age when I made this community--oh dear), and hopefully is more...inviting? To new members. :D lol

♔ I went through the member list and removed any dead journals that were still listed as joined. It makes the community look more dead when you see 6 or 7 deleted journals still sitting there. :'D

♔ Lastly, I was wondering if anyone knew about the website that is currently linked to [ http://densetsu.reverein.net/ ]. The link leads to an empty page, so I was wondering if anyone knew of an updated link, or if the site itself is completely dead. If it's the latter, anyone have any suggestions for a replacement link? Thanks!

I know Dragon Knights is over, but I hope we can stir up some more discussion regardless! Personally once I'm done school I plan on re-reading the series (again) so I can finally finish it. I haven't read the last 3 volumes so I still don't know the ending! For shame. ):

[By the way this community is turning 8 years old this July--crazy!]

--- end mod post ---

ETA: Apparently I still need to fix the information in the sidebar--oops! Will work on that soon~

Hello, dear friends and fellow fans.  This is my, ah, delurking post, although I've interacted with a few of you on Reverin forums or deviantART before.
In any event, I'm here to share with you the fruits of my ebay dredging labors: raw scans of D-K REmix 1~3 by Rima Ueno (who I have a sneaking suspicion may be Ohkami herself). I've had it for a few months, and I finally got around to scanning it today. Its poor spine was quite loose by the time I was done. D": In any event, I thought that you all would be interested in it. I have a couple of other doujin that I've been looking at buying when I have more cash, and should I get them, I'll be sure to scan and share them as well.
If you want to use my scans for graphics, please go right ahead, no need to ask or anything. If you want to scanlate them, do let me know, one because I'd like to see it, and two so that I can re-scan the crooked pages and give you the higher quality scans. Enjoy!

Heyyyy everybody.  Me again. (I know, I'm just so annoying with all these posts lately.)  But I just dropped in to say FYI I made a tumblr for DK, haha.  http://ohkamimineko.tumblr.com/

I know this is waayyyy early, but I was thinking that I would like to try cosplaying as Rath (or maybe someone else, I'm not totally decided) for Anime Expo 2011 (which is in July) and I was wondering whether anyone here was planning on going and might like to meet up?  Or maybe even cosplay as another character with me?  Just a shot in the dark. :)

I don't know if anyone has been reading (or skimming) the free chapters of Jintori Game offered on the Web Wings website, but it's a rival schools story where the characters seem to spend inordinate amounts of time in mysterious woods. It has some beautiful panel work and unless they're uttering every curse under the sun in the words I can't read, it seems to be significantly more light hearted than Lumen Lunae and Strawberry Palace - not that... that would take much, really :p

Well, I somehow missed the notice about the print release on the site itself, but spotted a listing for it onAmazon.jp today, although it's not listed on yesasia yet unfortunately. It seems its currently due for the end of this month.

Has anyone else been reading it? And is anyone else planning to grab a copy? :)

Hello everyone! There's a new rp in town set to start July 1st, and we would love some more characters! Give it a look, it seems super interesting.

Ello there again!

I was just wondering if anyone knew if there was anyway to find the original Japanese names of the DK characters online?  Preferably in kanji* because my Batman gambit plan is to take those kanji names, put them into Google, and then come across long lost fanart/Japanese fandom stuff of particular characters!  (Because, I'm too lazy to make my own fanart?  lol)

Or, if you have a better idea of how to find DK stuff through the Japanese world, please share?  'Cause that'd be awesome and be of much joy from this end.


*Don't know if I used that right.

Ummm.... so this past weekend I was in Little Tokyo and so I gave in and bought volume 1 of Strawberry Palace.  Hopefully (after I get over my paranoia of bending the pages in the scanner) I can get some raw scans up and then... perhaps translate some of it?  XD  I would really appreciate help with that endeavor, if anyone here knows enough Japanese to be of help.

Anyway, I'm planning to properly scan them later, but I went ahead and took some pics of the covers and etc with my camera.  And the inside poster as well. ^^  Click for yummy art previews~Collapse )
