Hello and welcome to Keba's Anime and Manga Place (KAAMP for short)! Here at KAAMP, I write about anime and manga that I have seen/read as well as my views on them. I'll also post about my original stories from time to time.

Just beware that some of my posts contain spoilers. I'll put them in spoiler tags just in case.

KAAMP's history: KAAMP was created in July 2002 by yours truly. It was a sloppy-looking website on Yahoo's now defunct Geocities. I posted my anime fan art on that site. Also, for a time, I posted my thoughts on the few anime series that I had seen. Now that I look back on it, my thoughts were rather ill-informed (is that even a word?) because I had only seen bits and pieces of anime dubs. Now that I've seen more series, I think that my commentary on various anime will be a little better than before.

So, come on in and stay awhile! KAAMP is now in session.

To My Challenge Entrants

Does anyone mind if I only select two winners? I got four entries, and I don't want one person to feel left out. That isn't to say that all the entries weren't great. I'm really flattered that you all drew my OCs. I'd like to give a huge thanks to all the participants. So, thank you.


Guys, I'm bored. How bored am I? I logged into my DeviantART account after about two years of absence. I can't believe I remembered my password. I still love theO way more, though.

Anyone gonna enter my Challenge? There's roughly a week left to do so. Even if you don't make the deadline, I'd still be happy if you posted pictures.

Sorry, guys. I'm kind of in a funk right now. I've been this way for a week. Long story short, I'll never be making that Linkin Park gag comic now. Well, better to be not started than not finished. Why am I mourning somebody I don't even know?

Also, I learned that JoinMe is cutting the number of guest viewers in each stream from nine to three. Time to dust off that old Picarto account.

Ugh, somebody give me an e-hug.



Alright, enough caps abuse. I'm over-caffeinated but I shouldn't take that out on your eyeballs.

Lately, I've been getting art stuff done. Not only did I finish up my queue of OC answers to your questions, I started some new art. If anyone wants me to livestream them later tonight, I can. That will be from about 9 to 10:30 Central, if you're interested.

I wasn't just productive on art. I finished up another chapter of "Rebels", too. I really had to beef it up from the original draft. It's still a rather short chapter-- kinda cliche, too. I haven't looked at it since I typed it out, but once I finish proof-reading, I'll post it.

Enough about me. I'm going to talk about the anime that I'm watching. OK, that's sort of about me, but in a more passive role. I started a new one (and by "new" I mean new for me) called Spice and Wolf. I'm really enjoying it. Sure, I'm having a little trouble following the talk about money and market values, but I still find it entertaining.

I'm really behind on my anime-watching. I mean, I missed the new season of Attack on Titan in its entirety. Heck, there are a lot of series in which I finished the first season, but haven't picked up the second. I don't know exactly how many series I can watch at once, but I think I'm going to try to start a lot of them.

This brings me to my next point. I'm on the fence about continuing some series. One that comes to mind is Noragami. Although the art was beautiful, I wasn't exactly smitten with the series as a whole. I heard the second season is better, but I still don't know whether I want to continue it or not.

For the record, I'm in no hurry to start Boruto. I may never watch it at all.

To be honest, a great deal of the anime I want to watch would be considered old. In fact, none of them are currently running. Either they've wrapped up or are on hiatus. This is why I feel so behind. I'm not stressing, though. It's only anime.

Keba's Big Ol' To-Do List

OK, so it's come to this. I've been making lots of lists for various things, so I might as well make one for theO. This will be for my drawing, writing, posting and other stuff.

Higher priorities will be in bold.

The Rebels of Planet Aadau: Write chapter 4
Destination: Finish chapter 7. Post chapter 6 through whenever this arc ends.
Survival Instincts: Give chapters 9 and 10 a tune-up and post. (Currently in Fiction Feedback Central.)
Develop ideas about mythological creatures story.
Album reviews (0/3)
Develop ideas about comic book characters in the "real world" story (low priority).
Develop ideas about a girl who finds a portal to another world and has adventures with a talking sheep (low priority).

The Rebels of Planet Aadau "movie poster"-- UNDERWAY! (Inking digitally)
"New Suit"-- UNDERWAY! (Inked digitally, will color)
Anime portraits of bands/music artists?
"Hero in Armor"
"Clap Your Hands"
"Inner Children"
"You Look Familiar" (low priority)

Manga-ing which is totally a word
Start planning Fullmetal Alchemist Brotherhood fan manga.
Draw summer-themed Fullmetal Alchemist gag comic.

Yeah, that got really long really quick. I do realize that life happens while you make plans, but I need a plan in order to conquer life.
