Welcome to Soul of the Seasons

Welcome to Soul of the Seasons, a Ronin Warriors / Yoroiden Samurai Troopers website. This site is dedicated to the four Dark Warlords aka Mashou and Kayura.

Please note I am a fan of both the original Japanese version (Yoroiden Samurai Troopers) and the American dub (Ronin Warriors) of this anime series. Therefore I use both versions of character names on this site. These are displayed in the order of: American dub name / Japanese version name.

Major Update in progress – broken gallery images (Edit: Done)

Soooo.. for a while now I’ve been having problems with a WordPress plugin that I used for image galleries. Well it finally got to the point that I had to disable it. I’m currently looking for alternative plugins that will work, and thus having to recreate the image galleries on my site one at a time. Needless to say this will be a long process.

So if you see code in places images should be, yeah that’s the disabled old plugin at work. Hopefully I can find a good replacement. Thank you for your patience and understanding.

Long story: The old plugin stopped updating a while ago. I’ve been meaning to look into this but haven’t had the dedicated time it would take. It kinda looks like maybe the creator changed, or the company handling it changed. Either way my lifetime license was no longer working for me and I wasn’t getting updates. I tried a while back to contact the creator and reach out, explaining my situation, but never heard back. So I’m a bit leery of buying a license AGAIN if the plugin keeps causing me issues and seeming lack of contact or even trying to work with me. So at this point an alternative would be a better choice, even if I have to manually fix everything.

Everything fixed so far:

All “Series Pictures” pages are fixed.

All wallpapers are back up. For mine I only put back up the larger wallpaper size as that just made things easier for me.

Merchandise – Other book publications and Toys, etc are updated.

I noted the new plugin does crop the thumbnails. I’m not sure if there’s a way to change this in settings. For now I’m just trying to get images back up.

I’m taking a break before tackling all the doujinshi pages. Those will take a while.

November 2nd:

Woke up, fed cats, had breakfast, listened to some YST soundtrack songs to get in the mood and began again today.

Doujinshi A – C is done.

The new plugin definitely crops in a landscape mode, and there doesn’t seem to be a way to change that. I hope it looks good enough to everyone. I’ve tried to find other plugins but all their screenshots show landscape images. So there’s no telling any of those will work any better.

Doujinshi D – F and Doujinshi G – I are done.

Doujinshi J – M are done.

And I’m stopping for the night. Hopefully everything will be back up tomorrow.

November 3rd:

Doujinshi N – S and Doujinshi T – Z are done.

With that all the image galleries on the site should be replaced. If you find any stragglers, feel free to contact me.

Again thank you for your patience.

Boys of Summer 2020

samuraireflections:

Hey Ronin Warriors/Samurai Trooper fandom. Do we want to do the Boys of Summer art challenge in June this year?

This is happening if you want to participate. You can post on here under the #BOS tag. There is also a dedicated channel on the Discord.

Normally, the challenge is to do one piece of fan work (art, fic, edits, memes ect) a day for the month of June. But since I think it’s safe to say the large majority of our fan community are adults with a lot of stuff going on, we’re going to alter this challenge a bit.

YOU decide what your goal is. If you think all your schedule allows is one piece of fanart a week, then that is what you should strive for. The whole point of the challenge is to create more fan works. I don’t want people to not try at all because the challenge of one a day for a month is too daunting.

So you challenge yourself with what you think you can handle and if you meet that goal by the end of the month, then you have won the challenge.

I hope many out there accept the challenge and I look forward to seeing your entries.

Just a reminder that June is almost here.

Set your goals, plan your projects. They’ve been posting prompts over at discord where the BOS has its own channel.

Naaza/Sekhmet bootleg figure updates

samuraitroopersfanzine:

New photos have surfaced of the bootleg “armor plus” Naaza.

I’m not sure why his face was blurred out in the first photo, and no one is quite sure what’s going on with his red hands. This is the same company that released the Anubis/Cale “armor plus” bootleg, and is the same company that is working on the Shuten/Anubis “armor plus” bootleg.

No shipment date has been confirmed, but the figure has appeared on eBay as a presale with an estimated ship date between January 23rd and March 5th.

Let’s hope the quality is improved…

Caught red-handed? Entered witness protection program?

Yeah, I got nothing. 😛
