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.

I Can't Watch a Lot of Anime at Once

Wow, I haven't updated this World, like, ever. I was thinking about kicking things off with an essay about "Sailor Moon" (the series that got me into anime), but I guess I'll leave that for another day.

What I want to write about now is how confused I get when I watch too many anime at once. I remember when I was watching "Death Note" and "Naruto" simultaneously. Every time I saw L with his thumb in his mouth, I half expected him to bite it, form the appropriate hand seals, and summon something. Really.

I told this to some people who are both familiar with "Naruto" and "Death Note". One of them laughed. Another one said, "You're special."

So, that's why it takes me so long to go through anime and manga. I only watch/read one at a time, now. Too bad the one anime I'm watching now is "Naruto Shippuden". That's gonna take forever.

Know what? It's the new year. I'm going to make a resolution to watch more anime and not get confused. I don't know how possible that's going to be, but it's worth a try.

Looking over my list, I see how anime/manga-illiterate I am. Most of the series that I have seen and want to see are pretty mainstream. And of course, the ones I want to see outnumber the ones I have seen. Boy, I've got a lot of work to do.
