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.

Thank You All

I want to thank everyone who wished me a happy birthday, yesterday. Sorry I couldn't respond individually, and in a more prompt manner. I hope you all had a merry Christmas, or if you're like me, just a great day in general.

Love you guys!

SS Reunion Wishlist

And now it's time for a Secret Santa wishlist! Thanks to Elricz and Lena for hosting because I almost thought it wasn't going to happen this year.

Most of this list was directly copied from last year's list and the year before that. As usual, 10 anime and all OCs. I'm listing where I am in each anime series because I don't want spoilers.

Since I already got my Death Note, Attack on Titan, Cardcaptor Sakura, and Sailor Moon wishes, I won't be asking for those.

The Manga and Anime

In no particular order...

Fullmetal Alchemist I'm just that predictable. I prefer the manga/Brotherhood continuity. If you didn't know by now, I'm a total Greed fangirl. I also like Alphonse. Heck, any of the characters would be fine, since I like almost all of them on some level.

Puella Magi Madoka Magica I watched the series, but not the third movie. I'm not sure which girl is my favorite, so I guess Madoka herself is a safe bet. Really, I'd be fine with any of the magical girl characters.

Assassination Classroom I just finished this a few months ago (so many feelings!). Koro-sensei is my favorite character in the series.

Magi I've seen both seasons, and I'm reading the manga, but I haven't gotten to manga-only territory yet. My favorite character is Alibaba, but all of the main characters are so likable that I'd be happy with one or more of them, too.

Spice and Wolf I've seen both seasons of the anime, but I haven't read the light novels or manga. My favorite character is Holo, but I like Lawrence a lot, too. If you like, you can draw some cute fluff with them together (hint, hint).

Gurren Lagann It's been some time since I've seen it, but my memories of it are vivid. I can't decide on a favorite, so any of the main characters will do.

The Seven Deadly Sins I FINALLY saw the first season of the anime, and I'm mostly up-to-date on the manga. My favorite characters are Diane, Ban, and King (not necessarily in that order). From what I hear, Diane's birthday is supposed to be on December 24 (a day before mine). Also Ban x Elaine makes me melt with happiness.

Naruto/Naruto Shippuden I haven't watched it in some time; I kind of paused it right when they're gearing up for the war. I don't really care about spoilers with Naruto because the plot's been ruined for me several times over. My request this year is anyone from Team Kurenai because they really got the short end of the stick action-wise.

Inuyasha I STILL haven't finished this anime (though I'm in the homestretch) and I haven't read the manga. I'm pretty sure I've been introduced to most (if not all) of the major players in the story, though. Shippou is still my favorite character, but I like the other main characters as well.

My Hero Academia My new obsession! I've watched the first two seasons. My favorite character is Izuku. I also like All Might and Ochako. Heck, I'd be happy with most any character (except for that sticky, pervy, grape boy who I hope bleeds to death).

The Original Characters

I'm just linking pictures. You can find out about the characters in the picture descriptions. You can read the stories here. (Just note that this world is for Subscribers only.)
Additional information (and some silliness) can be found here.
Other artists' interpretations of my characters are here.

From Survival Instincts:
[Naomi] [Marshall] [Dice] [All three]

From Destination:
[Keba] [Jon] [Both of them] [Rakusa]

From The Rebels of Planet Aadau:
[All the protagonists] [Meh-Eh-Au] [Conus] [Most of the cast]

If you want other pictures of my OCs, you can poke around my Portfolio, too. I just linked the ones that I thought were the best.

Final notes: I don't actually celebrate Christmas. I'm just doing the SS because my birthday falls on Christmas. So please don't add anything religious. Also, please follow theO's rules, meaning: keep it safe for work.

If you plan on making a Wallpaper, my screen dimensions are 1600 x 900.

Thanks in advance, S.S.! I'm excited to see what you come up with. ^_^

SS Is Live!

Elricz and Lena are hosting the SS this year! For more info, please go to their SS World and read the directions.

Let's Try This Again

It's been a month or two since I deleted my "CD Collection" World. Nobody even noticed (LOL). I was thinking about starting up a new music World that wouldn't be so involved, since I never did have the time to review albums. I was just thinking about giving my opinions on various artists and stuff, and it wouldn't be limited to the ones I'm familiar with.

My biggest hesitation is that some of my opinions are unpopular, to say the least. Also, I might go on tangents like I do with KAAMP (it started out as an anime opinions blog, and now look at it!).

So... thoughts? If you'd want to read about my opinions, I might type up a few. Of course, you can give recommendations and ask me what I think.

SS: Putting Out Feelers

It's the 1st of November which means that we're forced to observe Christmas for the next 55 days, whether we want to or not! Nah, I'm kidding. But only sort-of.

I'll cut to the chase. I'm wondering about the possibility of a Secret Santa this year. Anybody interested? And, more importantly, do you have the time to commit? Let's talk about this, guys. The comment box is OPEN!

Update (11/8/18): So far, it's lookin' like a "no", you guys, but there's still time for more opinions. If this years SS is a non-starter, maybe we can do art trades.
