03-31-10: The Next Phase

Chris wrote:Today's update is a rather typical one that in a way isn't typical. That update is re-reviews and new screenshots for Gundam Wing episodes 16-20. That's the typical part. The atypical part is that this will be the final update in MAHQ's old design style. In a few hours you'll see exactly what the site's new look will be.

It's like I'm really in the 90's! The colors! The background! The gaudy animation! It's...


Genius! I like it better than the old design. A nice retro throwback. I like your style Chris.

This page is still missing something... I know! It needs a Adobe Photoshop 4.0 lens flare!

It needs the old-school page view counter.

Nice that you have Vegeta as the only image on the homepage, which has nothing to do with Mecha anime. (well, I guess there's a few robots in the DB canon.)

Nice April Fools joke!

I had the feeling this was a elaborate April Fool's joke (hence the Vegeta and fake Netscape banner). Nice one!

You can still look at them. It's only the homepage that has changed.

This is one awesome page, kudos to everyone involved in it and can't wait to see the whole thing! Though I did notice that under mecha, Patlabor was missing. Was this a simple oversight?
