Time of Love & HONEYxKISS

Admin's picture

Hello again, everyone. We're saying goodbye to this very productive month of February in a more positive note with a double release of a couple of doujins that we're sure you will enjoy.

Time of Love and HONEYxKISS are two doujins made by Ameiro Nanashiki last year. You should probably read Time of Love first, this is a 20 odd page long story featuring Nanoha and Fate in their high school days with their friends. HONEYxKISS takes place during the StrikerS' time line, and is about Nanoha and Fate having a fight, which unavoidably concludes in a professional wrestling contest. The art of both doujins is adorable and the stories are full of fluff.

Also, we have some fresh nice news for all our visitors. After two years of working on it, the translation of the epic fantasy novel “Das Resultat sagt alles” is reaching its end, so hopefully we all will be enjoying this great literary piece fairly soon.

If it's possible, we would like to count on the support of an artist to prepare something special for our Website when we release the novel. If you're interested or have some questions, please contact us or leave a comment to this post. EDIT: We already got someone!

We hope you liked this couple of doujins. Please keep enjoying of our release :)

(Sorry for the double posting didn't see where to put this on until the information on the artist was changed.)

Hi, on your new/recent post of the nanofate dojinshis that you released today, I saw on the end credits that you guys wanted an artist to do something special for the release of Das Resultat Sagt Alles. I might be interested in doing it but how special do you want it? An illustration, a mini comic or something?

P.S - thanks for the double release and your hard work on the novel for those who did it!

Hello BAKA-Syndrome, thanks for your interest!

We were thinking in changing the top banner of the Web to something inspired in the novel for when we release it, so we can promote it and maybe we can take the chance to change the current style of the site to something other than pink (maybe to something yellow-ish, since pink is Nanoha's color, so this should be Fate's turn~).

This is probably not an easy task, because to make a banner inspired in the novel the artist will have to read it before it gets released, so we'll need the interest of the artist on the novel (which is pretty good and I guess everybody will enjoy) and the time, because the story is long.

If anyone wants more info please ask. We can even take this chance to make a MegaPack volume 3 if we get enough people interested (and a second artist to make the cover, and volunteers to seed the torrent for the first days).

Thanks for the reply A-san!

I am interested in making the banner of the site. If I or any artist take on this project, I usually ask my clients about some questions or suggestions first. Okay, here goes, I think on the novel part, you don't have to give me or any artist the whole story (it would be nice but it isn't necessary, don't get me wrong I would love to read the whole thing but I wouldn't finish the epic banner on time so I'll wait for the epic release). If possible can you and the rest of the time come up with an important scene in the novel that you guys would love to convey in the banner? Love scene, epic battle on saving the princess, etc.

On for the banner size how wide and tall would it be? Would a moving graphic be okay or would you guys like a still image instead?

Sorry for more random questions and you don't have to answer right away. Again Thanks :3

The top banner/header should be a static image like this:
http://nanofate.us/sites/all/themes/pixture_reloaded/images/header.jpg (please, ignore the fact that this image is absent).

Additionally, you can extend the header in the bottom and draw over the top menu (the one with black background), as long as the color has enough contrast to let the users read the menu text.

If this is too confusing, our current header is composed of 3 images (the big pink one, the black background for the menu, and a superposed image for Nanoha and Fate), but the idea of the new header is to include everything in a single image.

About the important scene, what you suggest seems like the best option to save some time and decide together what would look better on the site. I will ask the main translator and person in charge of this project and see what he thinks would be better for the banner. I haven't read the whole novel yet but I'll try to do it as soon as possible so I can give my opinion too.

Looking at your DeviantArt portfolio I see some nice quality works there, so if you're interested and motivated to take this task I think we should go with you :)

Thanks A-san for the information!

I am very surprised that the NanoFate image is separated from the pink banner. Whoever did the coding/css for the web is very talented. Yes, I plan on making the banner a single image for the encoder of the site. If I need more room I will go over the menu but I think the area where the pink is, is enough.

Yes, please ask the others on which scene they would like for the banner image, along with your opinion.

Thank you very much for looking at my DA account!!!!! I am very, very interested in the design of the banner (like crazy) but to make it fair, if others are interested too, please consider their art ideas/creations as well. If there are several candidates, please talk to the people in charge of the novel and decide on who will be the final artist of the banner. I'm sure there are others interested in being the artist so I will wait to see if I get chosen or not.

Thank you!

Mh... I think I would prefer if the black background for the menu was integrated in the header, and adapted or changed to fit the main header image if necessary, depending of what it is the concept of the header. When we decide something about it we'll post here or probably contact you directly if there is no more people interested.

And the thanks are to you ^^

Hmm....I understand what you are saying. You want the menu text in the image to make sizing/change easier. I think this is what you meant, if it is, it'll be no problem. I'll just match or closely match the menu text with the main header text (that fits the image) and combine the two. You guys can choose the text that fits if you want. It'll be a little more work for the person who does the css on the website but I'll even help him or her if necessary to 'slice' the pic for individual links on the image, then he or she can just add the right link address for each menu text. Anyway, I'll check the post once in awhile to see what you guys want to do or direct contact is fine.

There's no need to thank me, but um, you're welcome. >///<

Sorry for not explaining myself clearly, I meant that just the background of the menu would be good if it were in the same image as the rest of the header. The words describing each menu option are created over the image via our code, so they shouldn't be in the header image.

Oh, my bad, okay, that makes perfect sense. Then if I do the banner, I'll make the header tie over with the menu, or what ever you guys do with the menu I make the header go with it.

Man, I forgot how difficult it is to talk online instead of real life. (^_^;)

Hello BAKA-Syndrome, project leader here. When you get the chance, could you send the mailing list (nanofate@googlegroups.com) a message? There are a few scenes I think could work, but I'd rather not post spoilers here :) Many thanks.

Well... this is one of my favorite novel so i have been waiting for it for a long time. I was really happy when i saw the news and also saw about the finding artist news. I have some fanart about this novel though and i'd love to share it with you. But the only and biggest problem that i don't have a scanner... so if i take it with my camera, it won't be clear and nice. So, any ideas?

Hi, welcome to the site! I'm glad to hear that you're looking forward to this release.

I didn't know that someone already made fanart about this novel (specially since it's not in English yet), but if you want to share your art with us, and you don't have a scanner, I guess a camera photo will be the next best option.

Both of them are awesome ^_^
But I liked the second one more (maybe 'cause I have a soft spot for adult Fate-chan >//>)

One more time, thank you so much for your hard work :3
