EYEWITNESS ACCOUNT: In Akane Isshiki's Own Words

EYEWITNESS ACCOUNT: In Akane Isshiki's Own Words

Himawari Shinomiya is the webmaster of the Mitakihara Athletics web site. She took over for Nori Harada, who is now in charge of maintaining the main university web site. She used to be a bit of a loner until she fought battles against the Alone with us. After the battles had concluded, Himawari moved to Canada to pursue an education at Mitakihara University. She graduated with a degree in Computer Science and found employment as a member of the Athletic Department.

"Himawari was one of my students and the brightest of those whom I have taught," said Nori, who has an office at Mizuhashi Library. Not only is she the university site's webmaster, she is also in charge of the computer labs at the school: 500 in all. "She is very tech-savvy and knows a little bit more about how computers work, more than myself.

"I don't know how she does it, but the way she helps integrate Flash, social media, other Adobe products and graphic design into the site is amazing. As a result, the Madoka athletics web site receives 100,000 hits a day. It's an astounding number.

"She is also responsible for updating and enhancing the apps exclusive to the University. Himawari makes the most of her resources and I have to say that she makes me very, very proud."

"I wanted to work at Madoka because I believe in the university and its mission," Himawari said in an interview that the university newspaper made. "There is something about the athletic department's web site that I felt needed upgrading. 

"With the advances in technology and the rise of new network solutions to help a progressive society, my mission as the department's webmaster is to help Mitakihara Athletics be at the forefront of integrating cutting-edge software and hardware. I want prospective recruits to be impressed by the site and incorporate video, social media, Flash and other programs into a pleasing experience. 

"I want new players and fans and boosters to bookmark the Madoka Magi and Puella Magi site because they know they are seeing the best in collegiate athletics. If I can achieve this every day that I am part of the department, then it's going to put a smile on my face.

"I love the Magi, I love the Puella Magi, I love Mitakihara University, and I love my job."
