This is an interview I had with Majin Trunks, the former webmaster of Majin Planet. For the 6 year anniversary, I thought it is nice to hear from him so that you fans know whats up. As some of you may or may not know that today is a great day for Majin Planet being how on the 5th anniversary, Majin Planet closed. A year later we are here standing to provide and waiting for the future. Here is the Interview I had a few days ago with Majin Trunks, it is unedited. Enjoy.
Darth Unrivaled: What was your first encounter with anime?
Majin Trunks: Back in the 3rd grade I saw Samurai Pizza Cats on tv early in the morning. That’s what got me started.
Darth Unrivaled: What was your very first website about and how did you go about designing it?
Majin Trunks: My first website was a shitty freeyellow.com website about a dbz rpg, which eventually invoked into my first real site; trunks hope.
Darth Unrivaled: When did you make your very first Anime Music Video and what where the reasons behind doing it?
Majin Trunks: I made my first amv in February I believe of 2002 and I just liked watching all these music videos from other people so I wanted to try my hand at making one myself.
Darth Unrivaled: When did you become apart of Majin Planet as part of the staff?
Majin Trunks: I joined the staff back in around November or 2002 but the site became dead so I never got a chance to work until about April of 2003 when I got CA to bring it back up on my server.
Darth Unrivaled: When you took over as webmaster of Majin Planet, how long did it take for the fans to get used to the change?
Majin Trunks: I became the webmaster in around July of 2003 and it took the fans the better part of that year.
Darth Unrivaled: Are you still in contact with the former webmaster of Majin Planet and Staff?
Majin Trunks: I’m still in contact with both former webmasters but not the old staff.
Darth Unrivaled: You and some other webmasters from some well-known sites start the CNews Daily. What were your reasons for starting the project?
Majin Trunks: It was originally the idea of Str3ak from perfect anime. He invited me to do it with him and I thought it might be fun.
Darth Unrivaled: Cnews Daily was one of the tops if not best Anime Community News sites. When it was hacked, why was it decided not to reopen?
Majin Trunks: Cnews Daily was never hacked. It was being hosted by The Cnews and due to a few arguments, myself and the host were having he dropped us. After this, we couldn’t find another host because Neo ACC “whom is a well-known hacker” started to threaten the people who were going to host us.
Darth Unrivaled: I have to say most of the community was a little shocked when you open Samurai Spirit and not Majin Planet. What was the main reason for you making this decision?
Majin Trunks: Just decided it was time to try something new.
Darth Unrivaled: Most know the reasons for Samurai Spirit closing was due to your lack of time. If you had a chance to do it would you reopen Samurai Spirit and what would you do differently?
Majin Trunks: Would probably never re-open Samurai Spirit. There’s nothing I can say I would do differently.
Darth Unrivaled: After Samurai Spirit you and Breeman start a Music Video Studio called Cryptic Aura Studio How did this come about?
Majin Trunks: Were music video creators, mvid creators need a studio. Simple as that.
Darth Unrivaled: When Majin Planet reopen early this year, what was the reasons behind making it an only Dragonball Z site?
Majin Trunks: I thought I would give my hand at bringing the site back since I had been beaten today by fans who wanted it back up. The reason I was going to try to make it just Dragonball is that the number of DBZ sites was quickly fading and I thought we needed something standing dbz wise.
Darth Unrivaled: If you could go back and change anything in your webmaster career what would it be and why?
Majin Trunks: Nothing.
Darth Unrivaled: How do you feel about the anime community as it has become today?
Majin Trunks: The Anime Community today is quickly growing smaller, which I find somewhat depressing because I grew up in it. All the big problems it had are gone but that’s because most of the people are gone as well.
Darth Unrivaled: Do you think you will ever return to Majin Planet in the future?
Majin Trunks: I honestly don’t no. I don’t have any real desire to but if I have to I will.
Darth Unrivaled: Do you have any last words you like to say to the Majin Planet fans?
Majin Trunks: I think I said everything to the fans I needed to when I closed the doors on Majin Planets 5th year anniversary a year ago.
