|Rob's SuperKOR Help Guide|
Hello there! My name is Kasuga Manami, younger sister of Kyousuke, my hapless oniichan. You'll find me most of the time cleaning and mending our Green Castle home. But I do manage to find some time to help out Master with this web site. SuperKOR Master is away hunting in the cybernetic badlands for superduper KOR links out there for your enjoyment. In the meantime, I'll be your guide to lead you through all the hot spots. But first, here's a prerecorded message from Master himself.
Hi folks. Hope you are enjoying your stay at the SuperKOR Paradise Pages. First of all, let me explain my motivation for creating these pages. Way back in the autumn of 1995, I found it extemely difficult to keep track of the KOR pages on the net which I found in the search engines. There wasn't really a comprehensive site containing all the main KOR attractions, so I create a page for my own personal use. It was much easier than trying to find the site again through complex search queries. From that auspicious beginning was born the SuperKOR Paradise Page. Soon the volume of links began to grow and grow, and soon I had to create more specialized categories to keep from getting confused. I thought my job would be over with the creation of the Anime Web Turnpike, but I was wrong! While being the definitive anime directory site, it only contained a dozen KOR links, which is really inadequate for my KOR needs (and yours too, I imagine). I found other sites with long listings of KOR sites (about 20+ or so) but unorganized and unchecked. I found those sites very frustrating. Last, I thought about web rings, but after visiting some Anime WebRings, I found them to be too fractured or too limited to be effective. Plus it would be a big hassle to organize. Finally, I decided to keep improving my pages, since it builds on the strenghts of the various sources listed above. It acts as the singular web ring, since virtually every KOR page out there is listed in plain view for one to choose from. It offers focused, directory categories like Yahoo. And last, it offers a large, wide, easy selection of sites to choose from. Now we're up to iteration 4 for my pages with over 300 links for your perusing pleasure. I hope you enjoy it!Hi! Kasuga Manami back with you again. I'll be giving a quick description of all the various categories you're find on the superkor pages to give you an idea of what to expect. But first, some general hints and tips:

Last, "small batch" section refers to very small collections of 2-10 pictures of people's favorite KOR pictures, usually of Madoka. Last is the "Single Pic" section which means the site just carries a lone KOR pic. FTP/Listings is just like it sounds. Either it is a link to a ftp site or is just a plain listing of pictures.
