Animated version (v5) of the Spring 2011 Anime chart.
Posts Tagged ‘ animated ’
This release fixes the order of the TV series. They’re now in the right chronological order.
Consider this as an “optional” release.
Lots of additions once again, and a few updates.
Reading the changelog is recommended.
A few quick additions, and an up-to-date Animated chart.
Here are the charts for upcoming spring anime.
There are 2 charts :
- One is a classic image chart.
- One is an animated image chart. It will display bigger pictures of all TV Series for 5 seconds every 15 seconds. This is called “APNG format”, and it does not work with all browsers.
(will not work outside your browser)
Tested and working with : Opera, Firefox.
Does not work with : Chrome, Internet Explorer.

Image charts v5 Release notes (2011.05.04) :
Mostly airing dates changes, but a few additions and updates as well. Valkyria removed, Appleseed too (moved to summer), and Hellsing (been too long without info).
Image charts v4.1 Release notes (2011.27.03) :
Quick fix for title.
Image charts v4 Release notes (2011.10.03) :
Sorry for the wait. Here’s the v4 of the Spring chart, with no less than 12 new TV series, 1 OAD, 3 OVAs and 29 updates (airing dates mostly). Reading the changelog at the bottom of this post is recommended, or re-browse the chart from the start. I was surprised by the amount of new stuff, especially since the Spring season has officially begun (although the “real” beginning is in April). I will update the PVs soon too. PNG version is coming within 24 hours too.
Again, please don’t hesitate to point out any mistakes you see (or shows I forgot). I gladly accept (constructive) critics and suggestions as well
Thanks for sticking with Uncle Zana. Enjoy your Spring season !
Image charts v3.1 Release notes (2011.31.01) :
Just a quick fix for the order of the series. The timeline for TV series is now properly set. It does not add anything new. If you don’t mind a wrong “airing” order for some TV series, you can keep the v3.
Image charts v3 Release notes (2011.27.01) :
The shows don’t stop coming, huh.. I believe we now have 95% of the Spring content with this version. The next one will probably be more about additional summaries & airing dates. If any new shows pop up in the meantime, they’ll be added to the next version as well. For Hellsing Ultimate, it is a bit particular because it is not yet confirmed on moonphase, but a video of ep8 was shown at the comiket (thx Sniper). Will they delay it once again? Let’s hope not.
As usual, I advise you to read the changelog at the bottom of this post for the complete list of changes.
Image charts v2.1 Release notes (2011.02.01) :
Added a few OVA/OAD/Specials thanks to moetron. And a fix for one show. Also added one OVA I forgot in the previous version. See changelog at the bottom of this post for details.
The Animated version of the chart is up to date now too. Since the file is large already, I limited the “big images version” to the TV Series only (they are the most important anyway). Some shows have a “big image” that is completely different from the regular one (like Steins;Gate for example).
I am still looking for an image upload service which would let me upload large image files :/
If you know an image hosting service which lets you upload images around 8mb, I’m interested ! (That probably doesn’t exist for free anyway).
Image charts v2 Release notes (2010.30.12) :
Some massive changes, with 20 new shows, 8 movies and several updates. I highly recommend that you read the changelog at the bottom of this post.
I did not release the v2 of the Animated chart yet. I’ll do that later (within 24 hours normally).
Please use the JPG version in the meantime.
There were so many changes, I hope I didn’t screw up on something (normally not).
Please poke me if you notice anything wrong in the chart, thanks !
Image charts v1.1 Release notes (2010.06.12) :
Added “Moshidora” anime. My bad for forgetting it :/
Image charts v1 Release notes (2010.05.12) :
Springsmas. Some of you may think that it’s a bit early to release a Spring chart already, but in fact it’s not, because the Winter season has begun already, so it’s time to move on
Please note that this chart contains all infos that are actually mentioned on moonphase as of today, but it does not mean that it is complete. There will obviously be more shows in the v2, as moonphase will get updated with time (that’s why it’s called v1, too).
For this chart, I tried to be a bit more minimalist to avoid huge versions like I always did in the past.
That said, the anime had to have smaller pictures for this to be effective. Also, OVA, OAD, ONA and the rest used to take too much space because I designed them the same way that I did for TV series, resulting in big charts.
With this version, I tried to compensate everything by using this special PNG format that I told you about some time ago.
By using APNG, displaying animated pictures is possible, thus I can keep big pictures by displaying them from time to time. This does not work for all browsers though (read above). and it only works inside your browser.
If you are using Google Chrome or Internet Explorer (LoLoL), download the JPG version, as the PNG one would be of no use for you.
I also used a special font for OVA/ONA/OAD anime to dramatically reduce the space taken by them, while keeping it “readable” (bit harder but do-able). Most people making charts do not put summaries for OVA/ONA/OAD to keep the chart to a reasonable size, but I wanted to keep them without taking too much space, so I had to use a small font.
The next version of the chart will contain movies as well. OVA/ONA/OAD anime will also be animated with bigger pictures in the next version. I may also add original Japanese names for the anime (as part of the animation), and the anime logos too (if I have time to do all that).
I may be repeating myself, but if you have any suggestions/critics/etc or if you spotted some errors, feel free to post them here. I don’t bite (but I’d kill for cookies).
Personally, I’m looking forward to Kami Nomi S2, Hidan no Aria, Steins;Gate, Deadman Wonderland and Denpa Onna.
What about you?
Let’s hope we get some nice surprises with the Spring season.
Since I rarely come across “this” when browsing the Internet, I suppose it’s worth talking about it.
Note that for this post to make sense, you need an up-to-date Internet browser. Outdated browsers will not show anything.
Mozilla Firefox 3+, Opera 9.5+, etc.
So, the main topic here is
about the moeeeeeeeeeee about Rin-chan dancing in the above picture.
At first glance you’d think it’s an animated .gif, but after a closer look you realize it’s a .png picture.
But the truth is, there’s none of these! It’s all natively defined in the png picture itself.
Then you’d probably wonder what would happen when a user with an outdated browser attempts to see an animated png (apng) picture?
In fact, the first frame of the apng is saved as a normal png, which means that these users will still see the first frame as a normal png, in case they can’t see the animation. The animation data and other frames are stored elsewhere.
Then comes the file size aspect. You’d think (and I thought so at first too) that an apng would always have a greater file size than a gif. Then again, this depends on the image. Sometimes an apng can be from 10% to 90% smaller than a gif, which is really interesting.
Other pros : apng retains the transparency aspect of the png format, but also its subsequently higher number of possible colors, compared to the mere 256 colors of the gif format.
Cons : Few image editors natively support apng. Most of them will either throw you an error when attempting to open an apng, or will only display one frame. Hopefully, plugins exist (not for all editors though).
On medium or large pictures, it’s not recommended to use apng, as the file size increases exponentially. You don’t want your readers/visitors to load a 20Mb header image when they try to access your site, do you? :p
Users with Internet Explorer 0.1 or similar dinosaurs won’t be able to see your apng.
There are some nice apng editors around. Just search for “apng editors” and that’s it : plugins for firefox, virtualdub, standalone apng editors, etc.
Animated png pictures can give a more lively look to your website, with animated and artifact-less pictures. By playing with the posterize and other similar functions from image editors, you can also drastically reduce the size of your png frames before making your apng.
