I've been working very hard out in the real world, and I have set aside some money for art commissions. Unfortunately, most of the artists that I used to commission for this project are no longer available for non-commercial work. So, I am actively searching for new artists. Also, since my own art style has changed drastically over the past few years, I am overhauling the character images that are inserted alongside the story text. I won't be updating any of them until I've finished at least the main characters' "default" images, though. I've got 3/9 done so far and am working on the 4th. I just can't stop cringing at the quality of my old work. OTL
Colorblind, which was meant to set up a foundational part of the mytharc for the series, has proven frustratingly difficult to conclude. It has occurred to me that revealing too much of that foundation will take away any kind of mystery the planned third season would have had (yes, I have plans for a third season when I'm not even finished with the first
god what is wrong with me). I'm considering removing much of the mytharc background and saving it for later stories. The only problem, of course, is that NOT including that background deprives Colorblind of meaning in its own individual conclusion. So, yeah. This story has been gumming up the works for literally years now, and I just want it gone... I mean, done. O.o;

It's been a while. The project is not dead, though I certainly felt like giving up on it. I'm hopeful that those feelings have finally passed and that I'll be able to work on it again.
In the Story section, I finally made the prologue of the "Colorblind" revision available yesterday. Hope to have the first chapter available within the next week.
More money has been available recently, so I may start ramping up commissions for the Official Art section again. I got a lovely HieixKurama picture from Inma, and I am waiting for a picture that I commissioned from JanirotLuvX back in February.

Hello everyone. I'm sorry that nothing has been updated lately, but I have been working on several things that should be unveiled quite soon.
I have added a new section for Fan Art. This is art that isn't officially part of Yu Yu Hakusho Saisei but is clearly made with YYH:S in mind rather than the original Yu Yu Hakusho series. Beizo drew a very pretty picture of Botan in her YYH:S kimono. This is the only picture in the Fan Art section for now, but other art is more than welcome!
I am continuing to chip away at the remaining unfinished character profiles. Some of the profiles that I've finished are accessible now, but others will not be linked from the Characters page until I have started posting stories from Season 2. You may also notice that character reference images are inserted alongside the story text now. I initially thought of doing this when I showed my stories to a few friends who were curious about my writing but were not very familiar with Yu Yu Hakusho. They found visual representations of the characters to be helpful, so I decided to add them to the site. I don't think that anyone else who is unfamiliar with Yu Yu Hakusho will stumble across this site and read my stories, but the pictures are there now in the off chance that it does happen.
That is all for public announcements. Please stay tuned!

STORY Finishing up the first chapter of Two Step Forward, One Steps Back. Will be posting sometime in the near future. Posted the prologue today, but since it's only a few paragraphs long I don't consider it a really big announcement. I'm also fixing up the beginning of Colorblind to fill in the scenes I skipped, since the missing scenes only amounted to about half an episode and it seemed silly to just leave it like that. -_-;
TRANSLATION Mondtanz has been doing an amazing job translating the series into German. She has finished No Sign of Life and That Which Comes Between Two Mountains, and next on her list is Beyond the Warded Window. Wish her luck everyone!
OFFICIAL ART I've been commissioning JanirotLuvX to draw the cover art for each of the EPUBs that Mondtanz has been formatting. So far we have covers for No Sign of Life and That Which Comes Between Two Mountains.; previews are available under the Official Art tab. Janirot has offered to do the cover for Beyond the Warded Window for free, so yay! ^_^ Once she is done with that I will be commissioning the cover for either Two Step Forward, One Step Back or Colorblind, depending on which of the stories is closest to completion by that time.

Here is your February update! I have a lot going on right now, so here's the short of it.
STORY Just about finished with the second chapter of That Which Comes Between Two Mountains. I'll be posting that next Friday. The fifth chapter of Beyond the Warded Window is almost done too, but I think I'll wait until the 19th before I post that just to make sure I give myself enough time for proofreading and editing. I still have some work to do on Colorblind, but I think I will schedule the update for that one for the 21st.
ART From the looks of things Izu isn't going to be able to finish my drawing in time for Valentine's Day, but at least it will get done sometime before March. Still looking forward to it. :3

Happy New Year's! It's time for another news update.
STORY Finishing up the next chapter of Beyond the Warded Window. I really hope I can have it done by the traditonal update date of January 21st. I'm also working on that next chapter of Colorblind. I'm glad I waited until after finishing No Sign of Life to write the Yusuke-Kouryu fight; I feel that I have a much better sense of Yusuke's character now.
ART The incredibly talented Izu is drawing me a Kurama/Hiei scene for Valentine's Day! I gave her descriptions for two scenes from later on in the Saisei Project (yes, she got spoilers for Seasons 2 and 3). She's going to draw one of the scenes, but I don't know which one. Ooh, I just love nice surprises! I can't wait.

Time for another end-of-month update.
STORY I've been working on the latest chapters of all the in-progress stories, so you can expect the final chapter of No Sign of Life before Christmas. Beyond the Warded Window is the furthest along and Colorblind is barely past the first few paragraphs, so I'm trying to decide which one I want to update.
TRANSLATION I was hoping to hire a professional translator to work on translating the project to Japanese, but I was unexpectedly informed that I will be losing my 50hr/wk job about two weeks before Christmas. Needless to say, plans for translation have been put on the back burner until I can secure another full-time job (or three part-time jobs).

I've created a new site for Yu Yu Hakusho Saisei. I can't guarantee it'll be any better than the old one, but whatever.
