Minor changes to main blog

The changes to my main blog in English include
  • changing of background image
  • increasing font size of blog post
  • auto-capitalizing post titles
  • increased spacing of post titles
  • code for "by Haruka Takahashi" next to the date at the top has been replaced with "by []", where the value of that is currently "高橋はるか"
  • The "XXXth post: " is abolished and removed. Since there are too many posts with that, I would do it only on the 7 most recent posts there.
  • Images now have white margins and gray/black margins around it to simulate a photo frame with shadow. Future posts and posts that appear on the main page would have images to fit the posts horizontally is reduced from 100% to 90%  so as to have the new margins & border to be visible.
  • Posts and sidebar widgets text alignment is now justified (adjusting spacing between words in a line in such a way that there is a clean, even edges on the right. (Look at this particular bullet-point and compare it to the rest if you don't know what I'm talking about.
  • Position of the date of post at the top has been moved to the right. Strangely enough, this also caused the post title to move up to be on the same line as the date.
An earlier change not mentioned: Link to the now-discontinued IMEEM has been change to my mobile-friendly Wordpress blog. It's manually synced with all of my blogger blogs, so you might see lags of new posts appearing there, and it would come as a big tide when it does.

(It's ironic that I hardly do anything to this blog that is saying the updates to my other blogs.)

    Anime watch list changed

    What you are looking on the left is the new layout of the anime watch list. Not only does it takes up fewer space, there's less code for me to deal with, which is what I look at most of the time when updating it. The colour code on the far left represents the season it is for which is:

    • Orange: Autumn
    • Blue: Winter
    • Pink: Spring
    • Green: Summer
    Those colours are from the older layout, and are arranged by the air date/time of their first episode, with newest anime at the bottom.

    Since "Sora no Woto" and "Baka to Test to Shoukanjuu" would be ending in about 2 episodes, I deliberately left those under the older format. (But the font change slightly due to the universal settings to the rest.) As to why I changed "To Aru Kagaku no Railgun", there was no other Autumn anime (of any year) that I would like to watch, and I need to check the formatting. As for "Durarara!!", there were already announcements that there would be about 24 episodes in total.

    In case you were wondering what the older version looked like, here it is:
    Since images for Durarara and Railgun were replaced with another with the same image URL, the new images appear here.
