Well it seems a certain artist who I'd commissioned for 4 illustrations a year ago had finally got around to start finishing the remaining three! ^_^
Here's the first one:
Here is Robin using Kaika Shigan kenpo "NiJuushigan: Hiiro" (Blooming finger bullet style "twenty finger bullets: Scarlet"), only that she is using only her sprouted arms instead of all her arms.
Drawn by the lovely CCann (or should I say Dr.CCann as she finally got her medical licence)!

New technique added in the Shigan section, along with some changes made to one of the techniques in the Rankyaku section.
Now here's some changes made for Rantou!Quote:
And finally, I have decided to add an "Table of Contents" to make it easier for everyone to find a section they want to see without having too much trouble.Quote:

New artwork added! This time from CCann who's finishing up the remaining three of the four illustrations for the project I commissioned her for a year ago. Here is the second of the three:
(Note: I had to help her out more then usual with this one due to how difficult it was for her)
Drawn by the lovely CCann with hit sparks and blur & smudge effects added in by me!
What a well done and detailed work O.O (your project).
I like this CCann job a lot (and got to know her DA thru you, thanks for sharing XD), and you did a good job with the 'after-effects'.
I'm curious to see the last piece!
A quick message to everyone who kept asking me for permission to use my project for their fanworks:
If you all want to use the techniques in my moveset projects for your fanfics, doujinshi, RPs or whatever, go right on ahead! No need to ask me for permission as long as you give credit. That is all.

New technique added to the Shigan section!
Mil Belle Fleur "Shiryusei" (Finger Meteor) (HO)(N)(M)(T)(OS) - A simply more powerful version of Kami no Shigan (Shigan of God), only that it's amplified with Busoshoku "koka".
More to come later today!

Hey guys, what's up? I thought I should let you all know that I was gonna post more techniques the other day but a few things came up and plus I'm still trying to find some good names for the techniques so it's gonna be a little while before I post them here (although I could just leave them nameless for now post them sometime today when I get the chance).
Now on to another matter, one that revolves around that little book of the project that was gonna send to Oda. Here's the thing, I was going to send it to him, but there are 2 problems that are preventing me from doing so: Money (with the cost of printer ink and international mailing) and translating (with the need of the ENTIRE project being translated to japanese in order for Oda to read it, and my japanese is very weak). While I'm sure that I can deal with the mail thing with careful budgeting, the translating to japanese issue is beyond my ability. So unless I can find someone who is willing to translate the whole thing in japanese, I won't be able to send the project to Oda anytime soon.

A quick update:
After some consideration, I decided to say "screw it" and went on ahead to finish up the documented version (aka the book) anyway and then send it to the US division of SJ instead and hope that they, if they like it enough, will translate it and send it to Oda. Wish me luck!

A quick update:
Hey everyone, just so you know that the document is about 75% done. All I have to do is just add some bits and pieces of info and then all the remaining rough sketches that I have done over the years that I haven't posted online at all. Also I'm still waiting on CCann to send me the final illustration of the remaining three she owes me so I can finally add it in, along with a special illustration of a Rokukougan technique drawn by Darkeyez07 (which I was able to aford thanks to my 4the youngest bro! ^_^) so I can add that too!
Hopefully I'll be able to send the document version of the project before the next chapter finally comes out.
---------- Post added January 10, 2013 at 11:46 AM ---------- Previous post was January 08, 2013 at 02:31 PM ----------
Well I got some good news, some bad news, and some more good news.
The first good news is that the document is about 85% finished. The bad news however is that due to unfortunate circumstances, Darkeyez will not be able to finish the illustration of the Rokukougan technique in time, which sucks for me since I was really looking forward to adding it. The good news however is that CCann is still on board and working on the final illustration that she owes me as we speak which should be ready in time before the send off so it's all good.
Anyways, remember that one Tetsuhana technique, ??? (Iron mass ball)? Well finally after all this time, I have finally came up with a japanese name for it: Tetsuhana "Tamaishi" (Boulder)!
---------- Post added January 26, 2013 at 11:58 AM ---------- Previous post was January 10, 2013 at 11:46 AM ----------
I got great news people! Remember the illustration for a Rokuougan technique that was cancelled a while ago due to schedule conflicts? Well luckily, another old acquaintance of mine, Magion02, decided to take on the task of making the illustration instead so things are back on schedule!
---------- Post added February 01, 2013 at 02:53 PM ---------- Previous post was January 26, 2013 at 11:58 AM ----------
Well guys, it's almost ready for send off with only 93% completed! In the meantime, I would like to give you all a further explanation on a couple of Soru techniques that I feel the need to elaborate on.
First, let's start off with a further explanation on Kaika Soru "Heki" (burst)! You see, while Soru is a technique that allows the user to gain an explosive burst of speed in order to move short distances at vanishing speed, Kaika Soru: Heki is a technique that allows a Hana Hana user to gain an EXTRA burst of speed (albeit small busts) WHILE still moving in vanishing speeds. Basically, it's a burst within a burst.
To help further explain how it works, let's take a look at this little diagram that represents the time duration of a typical normal Soru:
Now here it is again with Kaika Soru: Heki being activated within the time duration of Soru at one point to slightly increase her/his vanishing speed by either 20% or 25%, but at the cost of a little Soru duration time.
And again, this time with TWO extra bursts instead of one, with the second one increasing the speed by 20% or 25% more, allowing him/her to move 40% or 50% faster then normal, but at the cost of even MORE duration time:
Now here it is again with Heki being activated at the end of the time duration of Soru to slightly prolong the Soru, but the speed stays the same:
As one has already guess, Soru is like a car battery being supercharged a few seconds before cooling down. So I guess you can say that Heki is like an extra "shift", which can be repeated with a very limited amount of times to avoid overheating.
It should also be noted that this technique also allows the user move at longer distances then a normal soru would.
As for Kaika Kamisori, well as you can tell from the description, it's basically an aerial version of Kaika Soru "Heki", only that it's activated during Kamisori instead of Soru and uses aspects of Kaika Geppou to have the sprouted feet kicking the air beneath her/him a few times in an instant instead of the ground.
Now let's move on to Kaika Soru "Senkou" (flash)! Now to further explain how Senkou works, let's look a little diagram that represents the rhythm of the ten ground kicks that is required to use a normal Soru:
Now let's look at it again in the same rhythm with sprouted feet included:
As you can see, the ground kicking rhythm of the normal feet stay roughly the same without any slowdown despite the sprouted foot kicking in between, thus allowing her to build up momentum at the same near instantaneous pace with out any real slowdown, only that the disappearing and blast off effect is far greater and dramatic . It should also be noted that each sprouted foot disburses after kicking the ground, hence the petals that gather around her feet (due to the air pressure and velocity created from the ground kicks) for less then a split second before she accelerates and spreads out from the spot she was on after she accelerates.

In celebration of Nico Robin’s birthday, I think it’s about time that I now unveil to you all a 18-screenshot preview of the document version of the Rokushiki Robin project! I hope you all like it!
(Note: The document itself, which is 142 pages long, is still unfinished, hence the lack of page numbers.)

Ok guys, after realizing that I had never kept count of the total number of techniques that I've written and added to the Rokushiki Robin movelist over the last 6 years, I've finally decided to do a technique count and so far there are currently:
- 3 alternate form techniques
- 18 Soru techniques
- 5 Kami-e techniques
- 10 Geppo techniques
- 43 Rankyaku techniques
- 195 Shigan techniques
- 39 Tekkai techniques
- 6 Rokuougan techniques
- And 13 Misc/Other techniques
Altogether, that makes it a total of a whooping 333 techniques in the moveset!!
Wow, just......WOW!! I didn't even think that I would go that far.

Added the first of the remaining two illustrations which is originally from the 180-page document of the Rokushiki Robin project that I made and sent to Oda about over two weeks ago.
I'll add the second one later.

Hello dear watchers, it's me again.
I'm here to announce that I'm going to end the hiatus earlier then I planned and go back to working on this project as well as all my other ones. Now after some consideration, I have come to realize that in order to make the project enjoyable again, I decided to start doing live broadcast (aka live streams) of me working on my projects, weather it be writing down new ideas, making rough sketches, or updating the movelists directly so my viewers can interact with me and help me out during the process, as well as to discuss other stuff.
Once I have made the preparations, I will announce the schedule of the first broadcast and see where it goes from there. If it's successful, I will do more live streams in the future.
---------- Post added May 27, 2013 at 06:51 PM ---------- Previous post was May 10, 2013 at 10:40 AM ----------
The first livestream starts in 15 minutes!
---------- Post added at 08:02 PM ---------- Previous post was at 06:51 PM ----------
Stopped the live stream for now since no one showed up.
I’m gonna try again later.
---------- Post added May 28, 2013 at 05:25 PM ---------- Previous post was May 27, 2013 at 08:02 PM ----------
I'm gonna try to do another livestream at Friday 9:00 EDT.
Hopefully things will go well this time.

Sorry shoji was away so didnt see the post / msg.
^It's OK. ^_^
Anyways, I've been working the schedule for how the livestream will proceed. Here's the schedule of the stream:
First, the Friday night stream schedule:
1st hour - The Nico Robin: Rokushiki project with some technique idea writing and rough sketching.
2nd hour - The God hand Olivia moveset (A beat'em up-style moveset) project with some technique idea writing and movelist updating.
3rd and final hour - The reveal of a new beat'em up-style "what if" moveset for a character from a "Brodacious" remake of a classic beat em up game and then some random shit.
Now here's the saturday 12pm stream schedule:
1st hour - A fighting game style moveset for a KOF character that I was going to do a MUGEN project on years ago but never went through with it.
2nd hour - The Shizuru Kuwabara: Reikibuki style project with weapon idea writing and rough sketching.
3rd hour and after - whatever comes to mind.

I seriously want to apologize to everyone about the stream malfunctioning yesterday. However I did some hard drive cleaning so it should be ready this time.

Due to the need of more space for future additions and changes, I have moved the entire movelist to Google Document. Go to the link in the first post to see it there.
Now for some new move additions to the Shigan and Alt. forms sections!
Remember the notes that say "(illustrated/rough sketched by ???) at the end of the descriptions of the techniques (the ones that have links to illustrations and rough sketches)? Well I decided to bold those parts to make it more clear so that everyone will know who drew what just to avoid further confusion since there are still people out there that think that I drew ALL the artwork to this project which is NOT true had they took the time to read the credits after each technique description.
Btw, I have been working on a video last weekend that I want to share with you all. This is just a little video that I made to get myself back into video making (as well as to make more use of the artwork from one of my movelist projects). If enough people like it, I'll make more videos like this. Now I will admit that there are some things in this video that could've been done better as I'm still trying to get the hang of using different visual effects:
Enjoy and tell me what you think.

Even though I'm currently focusing on a new project (an original project called "The Five Legged Divas" project), as well as going back into practicing my drawing skills, I'm still updating the Rokushiki Robin movelist, just not as much as I use to. Anyway, here's what's been added:
