Between the Thanksgiving holiday and some misguided steps in designing a modification of the color scheme to these pages, this update has been delayed. Barom One has been added to the Anime TV List. A few other series have updated entries. Also, the Animation on the Web section has been updated.

November 24, 2002
A new version of the Chronology has been uploaded. With this version a new file has been added, a list of Animation Acronyms. Some of these acronyms have been used to shorten the names of some of the studios in the list while others are for other companies involved in the animation industry around the world. Also, some changes have been made in the appearance of the database.

A new series has been added to the Anime TV List. Pocket Monsters: Advanced Generation is a sequel to the original Pocket Monsters show which ended last week after a five year run. There have also been updates to a number of other files in the list.

Two new series have been added to the Anime TV List. Piano is a new series while Stray Sheep Po no Chicchana Daiboken is the latest version of an older anime. In addition, there have been a number of updated older series. Finally, some slight changes have been made to the appearance of the database.

November 10, 2002
A new edition of the Chronology has been uploaded. Also, three new series files have been added to the Anime TV List: Popee the Performer (a children's computer animated series that was broadcast last year), Shinseikiden Mars (a new version of a Mitsuteru Yokoyama manga that has been made before as Rokushin Gattai God Mars, and Tsuri Baka Nikki (a comedy series). A few older series have also been updated. Finally, two files have been updated in the Animation on the Web.

October 20, 2002
Three files have been updated in the Animation on the Web section. Added to the Anime TV List are: Choujuushin Gravion, Hanbane Renmei, Kitty Grade, Naruto, Pecola, and Platonic Chain. There are new series for Galaxy Angel, Oideyo, Henamon Sekai Kasumin, and Rizelmine. Also, although a number of older files have been updated it should be especially noted that one of the oldest series finally has its proper name: Shin Jungle Taitei Susume Leo!. All the new Japanese series still haven't been added yet ....

October 13, 2002
The Chronology has been updated. Also, three new series have been added to the Anime TV List. The most notable are probably Kokaku Kidotai: Stand Alone Complex ("Ghost in the Shell: Stand Alone Complex") and Get Backers. (And, I've put up a file for the new Fall version of Galaxy Angel in a more timely fashion than the Spring series.) By next week I hope that I will have caught up with all of the new series that have begun broadcast in Japan. Besides the new series, about twenty older series have received updates.

The first new series for the fall Japanese television season have been added to the Anime TV List.

Two other new entries are for older series; Bono Bono from 1995 and Princess Tutu which began being broadcast during the summer. There are also updates for some other series.

Four new series have been added to the Anime TV List. Two are new series, Maou Dante and Hungry Heart: Wild Striker. Kick Off 2002 and this year's new edition of Galaxy Angel are series that I managed to overlook earlier this year. In addition to these additions to the Anime TV List I've made major updates in a few additional files. Also, the e-mail correction project is coming along with about 60-70 files being updated each day.

September 16, 2002
Today's major update is a new version of the Chronology. Also, there are some updates in the Anime TV List, including the beginning of a correction to all the old e-mail addresses in the set.

Today's main update is a file I actually prepared last week, a new entry to the Anime TV List, Overman King Gainer. Unfortunately, I've been having some problems upgrading to a new pc which is affecting my work on this site. I wasn't able to do any more work this past weekend on files for this site but I hope I will have everything working soon.

July 17, 2002
Today's update is a new version of the Chronology. This is a significant update in that I'm finally noting the type of animation for all entries. I hope I've got them all correct but I welcome any corrections.

Unfortunately I'm still finding it hard to find the time to work on these pages as often as I would like to. Anyway, today I'm finally putting up a new version of the Chronology.

April 28, 2002
Finally, I've had some time to do the Spring update of the Anime TV List. Actually, today's additions to the list don't account for a few programs that haven't debuted yet and I know of at least two programs that I missed but 22 new series entries aren't bad.

March 25, 2002
Today a new update to the Chronology has been loaded and a new series to the Anime TV List. Rockman.EXE.

March 4, 2002
Today's major changes are to the Anime TV List. Besides some other updates I've finally put in files for all four Oja-majo Doremi series, including files for last year's Moootto! Oja-majo Doremi and this year's Oja-majo Doremi Dokkaan.

There have also been some changes to the Animation on the Web section and my various Filmography pages.

Sometime in late March I will be changing my primary e-mail address. I am putting the e-mail address for the account that these webpages are on as the e-mail link for my webpages in the future. Mail is forwarded from there to my primary account. Since I will be unable to change all of the e-mail links on the Anime TV List pages before the change please use the link in the special frame at the bottom of that section for e-mail until I can change all the links on the pages.

Its taken a few more days than I hoped it would but I've finally added a flock of new series to the Anime TV List. One is a catch-up, a new children's series from last Fall, Kogepan. The true, new series are: Aquarian Age - Sign for Evolution, Bakuten Shoot Beyblade 2002, Full Metal Panic!, Honou no Shinkirou, Kinnikuman II Second Generations (the third Kinnikuman series), Onegai Teacher, Panyo Panyo Di Gi Charat (the second Di Gi Charat series with a third already announced), and Shichichin no Nana. Several look like they ought to be quite interesting.

Also added is a new version of my Animation on the Web pages.

January 5, 2002
With the New Year comes a new version of the Chronology. I've made the expected revision with a new file covering the one new animated television series that has come out so far this year. It shouldn't be too long before there are more new productions out (see the In Production page, naturally). I've also changed the beginning of the Chronology with a little statement on what is missing from my early history of animation ....
