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.

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.

Secret Santa Wishlist 2017

The year is flying by, which means it's time for another Secret Santa wishlist!

Most of this list was directly copied from last year's list. 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 Attack on Titan, Death Note, and Cardcaptor Sakura wishes, I won't be asking for those.

Assassination Classroom I've completed the first season, but haven't started the second. I haven't read the manga, either, though I have a feeling that it was adapted faithfully. 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 My new obsession! I've seen all of the first season and some of the second. 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.

Sailor Moon I've read the manga, seen all of Crystal, and I've finished the first three seasons of the original anime. I don't care about spoilers, and the continuity is your choice. My favorite is Sailor Saturn, but any of the Guardians (I guess that's the official term now) is cool with me.

The Seven Deadly Sins I'm not up to date on the manga (thanks, Crunchyroll), and I haven't seen the anime (thanks, Netflix). The last part I read from the manga is when the Sins finally reunite. 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 (I'm plowing through the filler after the arc with the Band of Seven) 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.

S.S. 2016 Wishlist

I can't believe it's that time of year again. And my birthday is coming up, too. Aah! I'm getting old!

Like last year, I'll be doing some copying and pasting from my previous lists. Again, I'll be limiting it to 10 anime plus OCs.

Since I already got my Attack on Titan and Death Note 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.

Magi I've seen both seasons, but I haven't read the manga (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.

Cardcaptor Sakura I finished the whole anime, but have not read the manga. My favorite character is actually Kero. I like Sakura and Yukito, too. In fact, I remember that Yukito's birthday is on Christmas (like mine), so maybe you could do something with that.

Gurren Lagann Again, 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.

Sailor Moon I've read the manga, seen all of Crystal, and I'm currently three seasons into the original anime. I don't care about spoilers, and the continuity is your choice. My favorite is Sailor Saturn, but any of the Guardians (I guess that's the official term now) is cool with me.

The Seven Deadly Sins I'm not up to date on the manga (thanks, Crunchyroll), and I haven't seen the anime (thanks, Netflix). The last part I remember from the manga is when (SPOILER ALERT!) They had that big tournament hosted by two of the revived demons. 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 know the manga ended and the series is on its last legs, but the events that I have yet to see have been spoiled for me many times over. Anyway, I want some NaruHina goodness.

Inuyasha I STILL haven't finished this anime (I'm midway through the arc with the Band of Seven) 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.

Da List

Well, it's about time that I post my wishlist. After all, I'm one of the people running the SS this year.

I'm going to be copying and pasting some of last year's list to this one. Like last year, I'm going to limit the options to 10 anime and manga (plus OCs).

I'll be eliminating AoT from the list because of this awesome pic from last year.

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.

Death Note It's been some time since I've seen or read this one, but I still like it. L is my favorite.

Magi I've only seen the first series (Labyrinth) and I haven't read the manga (yet), but I'm enjoying it so far. 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.

Cardcaptor Sakura I finished the whole anime, but I don't know if the manga diverges from it. My favorite character is actually Kero. I like Sakura and Yukito, too. In fact, I remember that Yukito's birthday is on Chistmas (like mine), so maybe you could do something with that.

Gurren Lagann Again, 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.

Sailor Moon I've been on a major kick with SM, lately. I've read the manga, seen all of Crystal, and I'm currently watching the original anime. I don't care about spoilers, and the continuity is your choice. My favorite is Sailor Saturn, but any of the Guardians (I guess that's the official term now) is cool with me.

The Seven Deadly Sins This is kind of my new obsession that I shouldn't like as much as I do. I'm up to date on the manga, but I haven't seen the anime (thanks, Netflix). 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 know the manga ended a year ago, and though I haven't read it, I've been spoiled rotten due to the series's popularity. I have a particular fondness for Kurenai's team of Hinata, Shino, and Kiba. They're pretty neglected, so I want them to have some love.

Inuyasha I'm 100 episodes in, and I've been introduced to most (if not all) of the major players in the story. Shippou is still my favorite character, but I like the other main characters as well.

Yu Yu Hakusho It's an oldie but a goodie. I've gotten through most of it. I'm at the part where the main characters are in that crazy house with those three guys. I can't decide whether Kurama or Kuwabara (did I spell that right?) is my favorite. I'd be happy with Yusuke, too.

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. For additional information (and some silliness) click here.

From Survival Instincts: [1] [2] [3] [4] [5] [6] [7] [8]

From Destination: [1] [2] [3] [4] [5] [6] [7]

One final note: 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.

Thanks and happy holidays. I can't wait to see what you give me! ^_^
