If I’ve seemed quiet lately it’s because I’ve been busy working behind the scenes to change from using Dreamweaver to using WordPress. The easiest way to accomplish this was to spin off this site onto its own URL. So now this site can be located at www.souloftheseasons.com.

I had hoped to have this done by my site’s birthday on October 15th. I’m happy to have exceeded that goal. This has been a lot of work for me and I hope you enjoy the results.

cakuni.com is planned to become just personal page ‘stuff’. It too will eventually switch to WordPress. But for now, I’m happy to present the latest redesign of Soul of the Seasons. To all of my fans and visitors, especially those who have stuck with me over all these years, thank you. <3






Major Update!

Other than that, the first signs of spring are appearing where I live. Some small blue wildflowers are appearing in our yard. Some sakura trees are beginning to bloom... What's that? .. It looks like.. wisteria? I'll go check it out and let you know what I find.


So as I stated in my last update, I've been finding my images uploaded to various websites without a link back and without saying where the images came from. One big problem is that this has happened to some of my wallpapers, usually the 1024x768 size. Aaaand I've found a couple posted in a lot of places, especially this one:
Top stolen wallpaper of mine >_<

So I've talked to a few people on how to deal with this. It's depressing that it's come to this, but I have decided that I will now put my website's name and URL on all of my wallpapers. That won't help the thefts that have already occurred, but hopefully it'll mean in the future my website will be attached to the wallpapers, permanently.

I'm slowly going through the process of adding this text, and hope to have it completed by the end of this weekend. As such, all of my wallpapers that don't have my site's name or URL have been temporarily removed. As I work through each wallpaper, they will be reloaded and the links restored. This is my top priority.

I apologize for the inconvenience. I'm really sorry that it's come to this.



Minor update. Links page updated.


New wallpapers!

Also one wallpaper was touched up a bit. I've noted it on the wallpaper page.

And my fingers are killing me from all that image editing, but so worth it. :)


Updated all four of the Mashou/Dark Warlord information pages.
I added two additional English voice actors to Anubisu/Cale's info. I added one additional English voice actor to Rajura/Dais' info. Also I moved birth names up to just below the "Name" list to make that a bit more readable.

Wallpapers section major update!
All wallpapers are now also available in 1920 x 1080! Often I had to add a solid background color to the left and right of the image. I hope you all approve.
Also 3 brand new wallpapers!

Soul of the Seasons' tumblr is doing great! 60 posts as of this moment that I'm typing this. I've posted a lot of Mashou/Dark Warlord artwork. You'll definitely want to check it out!


I started a tumblr account for Soul of the Seasons. I'm using it to post Dark Warlord/Mashou related images. I've never used tumblr before, so I'm not sure how well this will work. But I'll keep my fingers crossed. I hope you enjoy what I post there.


The Doujinshi page has been completely redone. If you click on the images, you'll notice they'll open in a lightbox window. I tried to make them into a slideshow gallery (that didn't use Flash), but it wouldn't work properly for me. The lightbox will cycle through all of the images on the page.

I also added a new page for unknown title doujinshis. This new page is for doujinshis that I can't translate the title, or I'm unsure what the translation is. If anyone can help me translate them, please contact me.

Also due to all of this redesigning, new doujinshi images have been added. That's right, new content! Enjoy! All images reside on this website since Picasa somehow went belly up on my account. (I can see my account, and images, but I can't log into it anymore. >_<)

10/15/13 - News

Whaaa? This website is 17 years old today?!

Just wanted everyone to know I haven't forgotten about Soul of the Seasons (SotS) here. Lately I've been doing a lot of behind the scenes work. I have updated meta tags for description and keywords, as well as registered my site for webmaster tools with Google and Bing. This site just got moved over to a new hosting service that looks awesome and will save me money.

I'm planning for updates in the future. Some of the reasons for the gap are:

So a huuge thank you to everyone who has stuck by me and with me all these years. Domo arigatou gozaimashita!


First of all, happy Memorial Day. Many thanks to those who have served in the military, are currently serving, and plan to serve in the future. I wish I could hug all of you and personally say thank you for your service and your sacrifices. (And hugs goes out to families who have a loved one serving right now.)

Updates. I have some settei scans up. Settei are the reference sheets used by the animators of the series. You'll find them under Series Pictures, on the bottom of each character's picture page. They're links only, no thumbnails. Each character has a sheet for their face, their helmet, their subarmor, their armor, and their weapon. Some of the settei I have may have a bit of an edge cut off, but fortunately the loss is minor.
Also I decided to put a watermark on these images. I believe the mark is light enough that people should still be able to use these settei to draw their own Warlord/Mashou fanart. (And who wouldn't want to see more of that!) The watermarks are now being used because alas I've been finding my images elsewhere online without a note of where the person got it from. (Places like tumblr.) These settei I bought are copies of the originals, and possibly copies of copies. So I had to do a lot of editing to clean them up. Most of the images I scan and put here have to likewise go through a process of editing to make them look their best. So just having someone save them and post them elsewhere online without credit is very disheartening for me. I hope everyone understands.

I wanted to take a moment to thank everyone who continues to visit this site. I hope it continues to be useful to people out there. Please try to spread the word and link to Soul of the Seasons. This site is dropping further and further down search results, losing out to things like wikis and toy websites. I need your help to give it a boost. Again, many thanks.


My apologies for how much time has passed since my last update. My mother's health deteriorated over the entire span of last year. The stress of it affected the whole family. I'm just now starting to get back to a normal life. I think. *Knocks on wood.*
