September 21, 2005: Beagle-san, myself and the entire AFC wish our lady, Princess Masaki Ayeka Jurai a very happy birthday! May all your dreams come true! 

Jeff Morris
AFC VP

August 18, 2005: As information, the ezBoard server for the AFC Message Board died last night. They're hoping to get a new one installed tonight, and the boards back up and running at some point thereafter. 

Jeff Morris
AFC VP

June 23, 2005: Greetings from the VP! We're beginning to make some updates to the AFC webpage, starting with updates to the links, banner and fanfiction pages. We're always looking for contributions, so please contact Beagle or myself at the addresses listed below. And have a great summer while you're at it, okay? 

Jeff Morris
AFC VP

February 14, 2005:   Happy Valentine's Day!

January 7, 2005: Happy New Year! A new year brings new changes here at the AFC, with a new President and Vice President. Taking over the reins as President is Beagle-san, whom former President Lesell Charis had chosen to be Vice President back in December of 2003. Our new Vice President is Jeff Morris. We both look forward to continuing the AFC's long tradition of being a place where the Tao of Tenchi is kept alive: remembering that Tenchi Muyo! is a show about a young man who takes strangers into his home and his heart, making them his family, to the point where he'd die rather than foresake anyone of them. We hope that this site will continue to honor our beloved Ayeka-hime, and be the home for fun and civil anime discourse for many more OVAs yet to come!

December 21, 2004: Merry Christmas! Following our regular tradition, here are some Tenchi Holiday Fanfics

September 21, 2004:   Today is Ayeka's Birthday! Happy Birthday Ayeka!

March 17, 2004:   Happy St. Patrick's Day! See Lesell's wonderful pic of Ayeka on the AFC's main entrance page You can see more of Lesell's art at her web page Lesell's Temple
February 14, 2004:   Happy Valentine’s Day! Please enjoy Lesell's pic of Ayeka on the AFC's main entrance page
16 December 2003: Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays etc etc etc! Just a few things to announce. 

Firstly, the Vice President applications are now CLOSED. There will be no election taking place as all candidates dropped out before the applications closed, except one, of course. The new Vice President will be announced soon. In the meantime, please do not send any more Vice Presidential applications my way. Thanks to all who were interested, and sorry to those who missed the cut-off date for applications. Next time, maybe! =) 

Secondly, the website will no longer be updated for a little while, therefore, we ask no content be submitted. Our old webmaster, Possum, has been wanting to retire for some time. He is unable to continue his regular updates and keep up with his email. Don't worry though, keep your submissions handy, and when the new site goes up, please submit them then. We will also have a new webmaster at that point! =) In the spirit of Christmas, also, enjoy these Holiday Fanfics =)

President of the Ayeka Fan Club 


15th October 2003: Hi All! Lesell Charis here, (President of the AFC). Sad news, as Literary Eagle, (AKA Lita) our beloved former VP and former Prez herself has decided to retire-- mostly due to other interests. We wish you the best, Lita and hope you have a nice time off the job, though we'll all miss your firm authorative moderating, we know you won't be totally gone, popping by the MB periodically, yay! 

Anyway, we obviously need a new VP to fill in Lita's position. You can apply for Vice Presidency by emailing me at Lesell@hotpop.com

Of course, we need trustworthy intelligent individuals with a penchant for punishing puny peons who push us on the message board! If this sounds like you, drop me a line. Mostly, the VP would moderate the message board; but there are other tasks involved. Eventually the VP would take over the Presidential position should something happen to me or if I retire. Therefore, the VP should be inclined to eventually take over. When that occurs, a new VP would be appointed, and so on, and so forth. 

Since I have no one in mind for this position, it is open to anyone who wants it, except in the eventuality that more than one person applies. In which case, an 'election' will take place. If not, the position will be given to the first able applicant 

Applications will close in a few weeks. Be sure to tell me why you think you'd be a good Vice President and what you can offer the AFC! 

Good luck to all applicants!

--Lesell Charis 
President of the Ayeka Fan Club

March 3, 2003:   For the Japanese, March 3 is Hina Matsuri, the Girls’ Festival or Doll Festival. An episode of Pokemon called it “Princess Day”, and we thought that made a great excuse for the AFC to celebrate it! (Heh.) One of the features of this day is dolls dressed in outfits from the Heian Era, which is why we’ve decorated the Frames/No Frames page and the Main page with pics of Ayeka wearing clothes from that time period. Click on the picture to the left if you’d like to see a bigger version of it. If you’d like to know more about Hina Matsuri you can visit these links:

March 4, 2001:   Our old Message Board provider, InsideTheWeb, has quit the Message Board business. See their announcement at this link: InsideTheWeb Shutdown Notice. Consequently, I had to find another Message Board provider. After much research, I decided on ezboard. Please see the new Message Board at this link: new Message Board.

I fixed a bad link for the Ryoko Forever Fan Club and added a new link for Arca Jeth’s Fan Fiction Archive in our Links page. Lastly, a few weeks ago our Guestbook provider had a problem and we lost our entire Guestbook. This means we lost all of our Guestbook entries from the past two years (ouch!). I found another provider, so we have a Guestbook again. When you have a chance please stop by and sign the new Guestbook. I still have a large backlog of work to catch up on - I’ll try to complete all of it as soon as possible!

August 20, 2000:   Another milestone for the AFC - we now have over 400 members! Ring the AFC Gong again! Seion has sent us a new banner and a “badge”. I’ve posted both to our Banners page. He also sent us a new AFC WinAmp skin. I’ve added it to our Downloads page. Thanks Seion! Literary Eagle sent me two Ayeka four frame comics, so I’ve created a new Ayeka Four Frame Comics section in our Gallery. We’ll be adding some more comics soon. I posted the new bios for Yui Kurokami and Wizard31 (both by Literary Eagle) to the More, More, More Members section of our Members page.

Here’s some unexpected Tenchi Muyo news:   Cav and RadHaz have both made posts to the Message Board about the rumored third Tenchi OAV. Here are links to their messages: Cav’s message and RadHaz’ message. If it’s true that AIC is currently in production on the third OAV series, this certainly is good news for Tenchi Muyo fans! Sephiroth Strife sent us his COOL member pic. See it on the Member Pics page. I posted the Member bios for John Joseco (by Literary Eagle) and Ken-Ohki and Ken-Ohki M (by Jaf) to the More, More, More Members page.

His site has full-length Flash movies of Tenchi Muyo episodes, MP3s and video clips. Here’s a website that has downloadable copies of all the Cartoon Network’s trailers for Tenchi Muyo: Toonami’s Basement (by Zogg). You’ll find the Tenchi trailers on this download page: Tenchi downloads. Many thanks to Zogg for posting these trailers for us Tenchi fans! Lastly, some news for RPG fans: Lord Tenchi Masaki posted a note in the Mailing List that Guardians of Order has released a Tenchi Muyo RPG. See their website for all the details.

July 4, 2000:   Here’s a webpage that may help you find out when Tenchi’s being broadcast in your area: Cartoon Network Schedule. Click on the “Schedule” link on this page. On the next page, change “Now” to “All Day”, set the time zone for your area (“Eastern”, “Central”, “Mountain”, “Pacific”, “Alaska” or “Hawaii”) and click on the “OK” button to see the Cartoon Network’s schedule for the next seven days. Don’t forget that Tenchi’s also in the Cartoon Network’s “Rising Sun” Toonami line-up on Saturday mornings.

July 3, 2000:   Just a little reminder. Tenchi Muyo will be on the Cartoon Network (in the U.S.) tonight, starting at 6:00 P.M. Pacific Daylight Time. Check your local TV listings for the time in your area. You may have encountered some problems with the site over the weekend. Angelfire was having some difficulties (it was affecting other sites too), so please be patient. Hopefully Angelfire will have the problems sorted out soon... Anime Expo is in progress in Southern California. You can see some of the sights at this website: Anime Expo. Please take a look - they’ve posted LOTS of pictures. I think all Tenchi Muyo fans will recognize these characters: Tenchi tug o’ war

I added a link for Seion’s new version of A Startica Song to the Fan Fiction page, and I also added a link to an interesting new fic, Goodbye and Hello by Nikholas F. Toledo Zu too. I added a link for the Two Guys’ Tenchi Muyo Fan Fic Review Page in the Links page. Check it out - it’s a site where an Ayeka fan (Davner) and a Ryoko fan (Cav) give their opinions on Tenchi Muyo fanfics. Last week GenSao published the voting results for the Spring 2000 season on his Tenchi Muyo Fan Fiction Archive. Four AFC members finished in the top ten: 

3rd place: “Confess to You” by Literary Eagle
5th place (tie): “Hands of Fate” by Ryoke
7th place: “To Love and To Hate” by The Total Anime Nut
10th place (tie): “Aikan Muyo” by Happosai

Please ring the AFC Gong long and loudly for them - congratulations!

June 21, 2000:   Happy Startica!   In honor of this holiday, Seion sent us a very beautifully-designed web page version of  A Startica Song. Please take a look! I also posted the new Newsletter #15, written by Literary Eagle and Lesell Charis. Please read it to find out what new things are happening with the Ayeka Fan Club. The upcoming broadcast schedule for the Cartoon Network’s anime block, Toonami, has been published on AnimeNation’s website, in their “Anime News” page. The first episode of Tenchi Muyo will be broadcast at 6:00 P.M. on Monday July 3rd, beginning with the first OAV episode, “The Resurrection of Ryoko”. Copies of the Cartoon Network’s trailers for Tenchi Muyo can be found at this web site: Toonami Miscellaneous, which is maintained by TylerL. Click on the picture of Washu for the long trailer, and click on the picture of Tenchi for the short trailer. Many thanks to TylerL for providing these trailers for all of us Tenchi fans (especially those of us who don’t have access to the Cartoon Network’s broadcasts!) Lastly, I’ve received permission to post more fan art pics, so I’ll be uploading them this weekend.

June 18, 2000:   More bios! I added the new bios for Mayhem (by War-Ouki) and Fox the Wanderer (by Jaf) to the More, More, More Members page. War-Ouki and Jaf please take a bow - good work!   I added more fan art pics by EvilEyez, John Joseco, Miss Ryoko, Ryoke and Tatsumingo to the Fan Art page. I’ll be adding more fan art pics soon. If you know anyone who has drawn some Ayeka fan art pics, please ask them if they’d let us post their pics - thanks! Please see the ongoing discussion in the Message Board concerning “Tenchi & Pioneer’s Decision on OVA 3”. A petition may be distributed in an attempt to persuade Pioneer to go forward with production of a third Tenchi Muyo OAV. See the notes below (from June 11, 2000) to read Pioneer’s comments about the third OAV.

June 11, 2000:   I posted the bios for Ayashi_No and Iwa/princess_aeka_14 in the More, More, More Members page. Many thanks to Ryoke and Literary Eagle for those bios! After many delays, I’ve finally updated the Fan Art page. Please take a look and let me know what you think. All of the artists gave us permission to post their Ayeka fan art pics, so a very big THANK YOU to them also: Cameron, Emi, EvilEyez, Catherine Joseco, John Joseco, Lesell Charis, Literary Eagle, Masami, Miss Ryoko, Ryoke, Seion and Tatsumingo. Please send them a nice note to let them know how much you appreciate their great work! And of course, thanks once again to K’thardin for letting us post pics that were already posted on his Tenchi Muyo fan art site:  K’thardin’s Tenchi Muyo Fan Art Page

The Cartoon Network will begin airing Tenchi Muyo on July 3. For more details, see the June 6 entry in the Anime News section of AnimeNation’s website. You also might want to read the discouraging news from Pioneer regarding the likelihood of the third Tenchi OAV (it’s on the same page - see the entry for June 5). Here’s the actual paragraph from AnimeNation’s website:
