Historykuroi-hoshi.org started out as general anime fansite called Angels Anime hosted on a free webhost. My layout skills where next to zilch; I couldn't even design a webpage so had to use a page builder! Another year on a free webserver, I learned HTML thanks to Lisa Explains it All and saved enough to buy Paint Shop Pro 7 and with the help of Daydream Graphics tutorials I made my first layout! It was an achievement and I was very proud of it; unfortunately I never kept a record of it. It was a Ranma ½ layout made using simple div layers and IFrames (as it was the in thing at that time).
Just under a year later and after much thinking, I decided to purchase my first domain. I didn't have a clue what to call said domain and decided to enlist the help of a very close friend of mine, Sayuri, to help with picking the right name. She recommended kuroi-hoshi, which roughly translates as black-star. I loved it straight away and agreed that it was a great choice. Next came about the debate over if it would be a .net, .com or .orgó.net and .com had been done to death so we finally agreed on kuroi-hoshi.org, which was opened on April, 25th 2003.
After another year of practicing my HTML skills and graphic design; I decided it was about time I owned a blog domain. kuroi-tsuki translated as black-moon and the perfect sister network and partner for kuroi-hoshi.org. kuroi-tsuki.org was opened on March, 8th 2004.
