Animefringe Web Showcase for December 2000:
Site By HCE
"When I first came across animeDOTmusic, I was totally blown away by the
really cool layout. And then I noticed the Sakura image on the main page
was blinking, and differently each time I might add. A pretty easy thing
to do, but it made the page seem alive. The content is pretty cool as well.
Featuring both anime edition content and spotlight songs the site has a lot
going for it. Add all that together with some excellent artwork and you've
got a very interesting experience. I also really like the unique writing
style used with the content."
"Music, man, I love music. We all do though, right? I'll tell you what I
like... a good anime music page. And here we've found one! I'm pretty sure
there's no other sites around quite like this one, that do what this site does,
and do it with such a sense of style and fun. The layout is very
nice -- clean, simple... And you'd think that salmon color is gross but it really
looks all right on this website. <g> This site's definitely one to keep
an ear on. Ha, ha! Ear! I swear, I kill myself sometimes!"
"Great layouts -- simple yet catchy, attractive and clean.
Humor is a great factor of the webmaster, making the place a fun site to
experience. The overall site presents to be a great resource for music they
feature, with the images and lyric accompanyment. I hope to see this site
grow to an even more extreme level, as it looks greatly promising with their
"Either my computer is really stone aged or I am just really stupid. For some
reason I can't hear the music. Am I supposed to hear something? Other than
that the layout is gorgeous. I absolutely love the blinking Sakura pic.
And the layout is wonderful. I had no trouble getting around, and there is
tons of info on the music that I am supposed to hear. So I know just about
everything about it except for how it sounds. It's obvious that the designers
spent a lot of time and effort on this. It looks great. Oh and I love the
copyright notes. They are right to tell others not to pick their noses.
"animeDOTmusic is definately a site to watch! So far they've only covered
the soundtracks for Serial Experiments Lain, Love Hina and Trigun, but the amount of
depth that went into each issue is commendable. Not only does the site let
you listen to the featured soundtracks, but it has detailed articles on
certain tracks, the musicians, and the anime. My only complaint is the
length of time between updates and lack of articles, but I'm sure this will
improve as the site designers get some assistance on the writing front. The
design end is perfect: don't change a thing! Keep the music features
