Things you thought you got rid of but are still there….

Lately I’ve been actively watching a lot of anime. Well simply because this season of anime is just fuckin awesome and seriously there are so many good on going titles out and I’m just like obsessing over two new fandoms and just want to draw fanart but I’m procrastinating and I would rather work on my commissions and and WELL! You kinda get my drift with the run on sentence there…. Continue reading

Not Enough Hours in a Day…

Ugh….

So much anime, so little time. What should I write about this time. Mmmm, I’m pretty divided—but I’m guessing that I should be jotting down my feelings on the  animes that I’m currently obsessing about. And that is:

  • K Project
  • Kamisama Hajimemashita
  • Tonari no Kaibutsu-kun
  • Sukitte ii na Yo

I’ve also promised my sister that I’d watch Sword Art Online, but even thought I’ve found interest in the anime, it lacks the addictive charm to get me to keep coming back to it. BUT the four animes that I’ve listed DO have that addictive charm. These are the shows that are swiriling in my mind, and have me giggling in random times of day as I remember them.

OH and I plan to make the time to watch Puella Magi Madoka Magica, just BECAUSE! The OST is directed and conducted by the Kajiura-sama.

*swoooon*

Anime Tutorials

I was surfing the internet at one time looking for anime tutorials for a friend who is just getting into drawing anime and I wrote up a small document which I printed and gave out to her. Donno, I’d thought it’d be good to post it up here to whoever needs some direction on how to get started. Hope you like!

Bitter Virgin

I don’t remember exactly what date was it but I do remember it was a Friday… because I wanted to read Bleach and it wasn’t out yet because it was like four o’clock in the morning and I couldn’t sleep, I randomly pick this manga to read even though I have several others that I want to read… ah donno what’s wrong with me…

Recently watched Anime

I’ve spent a large amount of time blogging today… so this will be the last post of the day… before I come back I suppose….
I’m inches away to finally being up-to-date with Gintama. After those two weeks of being internet-less build a couple… but now, I’m really close… I believe I have less than ten before I finally catch up. Yes! As for another anime that I’m rather relishing is, Tegami Bachi…

Oldie but banging!

“Banging” is just another slang term used around where I grew up to say that something is super cool. I like that word it’s fun to use

*laughs*

Well, with five episodes out so far, InuYasha: The Final Act, has kicked off with an extraordinary blast. With Inu and Sess getting new additional abilities to their legendary weapons, the tesseiga and the tetseiga (I think that’s how you spell it…)

Anime/Manga Fandoms

I used to gag at those groupies, who’d foam in the mouth and recessitate on the ground over some guy who just tosses his head and issues signature moves… but nowadays, I look back and think, “Well, at least that ‘thing’ they’re obsessed about is alive and human”.

Yes, as strange as it sounds, it happens. You enjoy something and then one day you realize that you (and countless others) fall for a groupie-like obsession with an actor that doesn’t exist; the actor being an animated character. Thinking about it from an outsider’s point of view, it is downright strange. At this point in time I believe that most people has heard of the term “anime” or “manga”, possibly called it “Asian/Japanese cartoons”, or something along those lines. Usually the hard-core fanbase is found among the adolescents and even young adults—of course there the kids who fawn over shows like Pokémon and Naruto but kids are kids and they don’t really have that much of a groupie/fan-girly attachment. (Kids are tape anyways—they attach themselves to everything XD)

Anime is significantly different from your average afternoon cartoon shows watched on American TV channels. It’s animation that chronicles a story. Very much the same way a person would fawn over an actor in a movie/TV drama, a person could fawn over a character in an anime. Such can be true with “moe” characters. “Moe” (although interpreted in different ways) is generally described as a character with characteristics that reaches out to the viewer. They have tragic pasts and personalities that allow the viewer to relate to him/her, creating a certain attachment.

I really haven’t seen fandom in any genre or category that is as intense as the Anime/Manga fandom. I consider it unreal…
