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.

Looking for Recommendations

As I mentioned in my previous post, I'll be going in for surgery in about two weeks. I'm looking to fill my time with anime and music while I recover.

First, let's talk anime. My main sources are Crunchyroll and Hulu. I'm also leeching off of my parents' Amazon Prime. Shh.... I do have a bunch of series queued up, but I don't know what to go with first. So if you suggest something that I'm already planning to watch, that's totally fine. I'll just move it up on my list.

In regards to music, I don't really care what you recommend, as long as it's not religious and/or country. Also, since I'll have a lot of downtime, I was wondering if you guys wanted me to start a new music World (click here for details). Depending on how good I feel, I just might.

Must Have More Manga

Barnes and Noble is having a "buy two get one" sale on manga soon. I think it's on the 19th. I have the last two volumes of a series that I intend to buy, but I might as well get a freebie while I'm at it.

So, now I turn to you, my fellow Otakuites. Got any recommendations for a good manga? Suggest anything you want, and I'll check if my local B&N has it.

Gimme Anime!

I have a bit of a problem. For those of you in the Sketch Marathon, you might know what it is. While sketching 365 characters isn't a problem (challenge, yes, but not a problem... yet), I have to figure out 365 characters that I want to sketch.

I've written down a list of series to sketch characters from, although I haven't figured out which ones to sketch from each series. Who do I include? Who do I exclude?

I'm going to draw more characters from the series that I really, really like as opposed to the ones that I only kinda like. Still, my list of series is kind of pitiful since some of those that I'm really into, I haven't finished. I'm trying to group these drawings by series, so I don't want to sketch characters from a series that I haven't finished, only to find, after the fact, that I wanted to draw that one character that they hadn't introduced yet.

And even if I do finish all those series, do I have enough characters to carry me through to the end of the year?

I never thought I'd say this anytime soon, but do you people have any anime you could recommend to me? I'd prefer short series (30 episodes or less) without anything... graphic. It's OK if you mention series that I already watch/watched/want to watch anyway-- there might be sequels and OVAs.

I leave you now with a final thought. ♪

Do you know the anime
