What I see writing as

Original or fanfiction.



My earliest writings were in the form of "journals". You know, those things that your teacher forces you to write. As a new immigrant with no command over the language whatsoever, I followed the structure of: X meets Y. X says, "Go away". Y goes away. Needless to say, the teacher was unimpressed. In fact, she thought I was being abused. Ma'am, somebody who can't communicate in the language cannot communicate his/her feelings, so despite the attractive option of mainstream psychology to explain the hidden meanings of a three-lines-long, barely comprehensible "journal entry" that is most certainly fiction, you should very probably just try to teach some proper English.

PR: Viz Media Gets In the Holiday Spirit with Launch of Sweet Rein

VIZ MEDIA GETS IN THE HOLIDAY SPIRIT WITH THE LAUNCH OF THE NEW SHOJO MANGA SERIES SWEET REIN



A Girl Takes On The Role Of Santa Claus With A Cute Boy Who Also Happens To Be An Enchanted Reindeer In A New Magical Romance

Dragon Ball Z, episodes 1-5

I guess the decision to watch Dragon Ball Z before I watched the first season (Dragon Ball) is quite weird. But I wanted to see whether or not it is possible to enjoy the series as a separate show. People say it is possible. Some say it is not. Well, here is my answer.



Even if you have never seen Dragon Ball or any other incarnation of the series, you probably know who he is. Goku.

This shit indeed.

In less than a month I'll be graduating and entering the possibility of the next big thing in my life. Two years of diploma in KDU was great and memorable, though I wish I actually contributed slightly more in terms of organizing events/trips for clubs and whatever. Even so I have no regrets and it was indeed an experience that would be with me for the rest of my life. :)

For Inu Yasha Haters:

Note: That I wrote this a long time ago and still have not watched the new series.

Albeit, I did watch two episodes and got bored very quickly.

That being said, fans don't tune out yet. I have a very good analysis of at least ten episodes in the series that I think are worth mentioning.

Five Things I Want to See in the Sailor Moon Reboot

If you're an anime nerd like me you know that the anime world has been abuzz for the past year with the news that the Sailor Moon series is being rebooted. If you've had any sort of in depth conversation with me, then you'd know that I am ridiculously excited about the new series. Sailor Moon was my first anime, way back when I was a wee little Nubianrose in woah. I think I was in kindergarten the first time I was introduced to the Sailor Senshi (though, it was the American version, so they were Sailor Soldiers). A few years ago I was fortunate enough to be able to watch the ENTIRE SERIES IN IT'S ORIGINAL JAPANESE!!!! Let me tell you that, though the English dubbed version will forever have a special place in my heart, the original version was SOOO much better! The plot line was more compelling, the characterizations made more sense, and there was a lot more foreshadowing of future events. It was also a lot darker than the English dubbed version, but that was because the show was originally meant for teens and not kids. I say all this to say that I love Sailor Moon- the manga, the anime, the fandom- and I could not be more delighted that they are rebooting the series. I know that it's a concept that really easy to get wrong, but Naoko Takeuchi- the creator of the series- is supposed to be heavily involved, and I trust her.



Another reason why I'm so excited about the reboot is because although I loved the original series, it had some flaws, especially compared to the manga, so in no particular order here are 5 things I want to see in the new series.

Anime Blu-ray Review: Inuyasha: The Final Act Part 1

Inuyasha: The Final Act was a 26 episode series that was produced in 2009 to wrap up the story from the original Inuyasha anime series. In late 2012, Viz Media released the first 13 episodes on DVD and Blu-ray under the title Inuyasha: The Final Act Part 1. This review focuses on the Blu-ray pressing of this release.



Inuyasha: The Final Act picks up right where the seventh season of the Inuyasha anime series ended. Throughout the episodes on this set, there are occasional "flashbacks" to events that took place in the first Inuyasha series to refresh the audience's memory about why certain things are happening in Inuyasha: The Final Act; fortunately, this doesn't happen so often that it bogs down the storytelling.

ZETMAN Blu-Ray Coming this November

VIZ Media, LLC (VIZ Media), the largest distributor and licensor of anime and manga in North America, expands its substantial anime catalog with the addition of the dark sci-fi action series ZETMAN on November 5th. The 13-episode series is rated 'TV-MA' for Mature Audiences and will be offered Uncut in DVD and Blu-ray editions. The DVD MSRP is $44.82 U.S. / $43.24 CAN and Blu-ray MSRP is $54.97 U.S. / $66.15 CAN.



ZETMAN is based on a popular manga (graphic novel) series by Masakazu Katsura, who also created VIDEO GIRL AI and I"S (both published in North America by VIZ Media) and was the character designer for the hit anime series, TIGER & BUNNY (also available on Blu-ray and DVD at North American retailers).

Spectacle Anime Cosplay in Sakura-con

Sakura-con for all famine freaks and Japanese fanatics! Sakura-con is not only the largest anime festival in the Northwest, but it is also ringing out its 15th year of Japanese culture celebration from April 6 -8. Anime Cosplay is not only popular in Japan, but also in western area and even global. This has come a long way from its humble beginnings at the Double Tree Inn in Tukwila to being clearly ready to pull in thousands of fans from the States and other countries. This year, Sakura-con provides the amazing opportunity to see exciting acts such as girl rock band and platinum recorders, Stereopony, all the way from Okinawa! In addition, Fumiko Kawamura, the head designer of the rising Lolita fashion, will be attending to sell her latest wearable masterpieces.



Among Anime Cosplay, people have different preference to cosplay. To me, Soul Eater Cosplay is listed as my priority if I decide to participate in a cosplay event. Yet, I was into D.Gray-Man Cosplay two years ago, and I love it because of the girlish style and stuff that are kind of dollish. The wordcosplayis a combination of the words costume and play. People who participate usually dress as their favorite character from popular culture. The term usually refers to people dressing up as a character based from Japanese anime or more American-themed characters such as the Joker from DC Comics. Anime refers to Japanese animation, available in the original Japanese language with subtitles or in dubbed English.

Hot Fullmetal Alchemist Cosplay Is Top Listed

Browsing astonishing FullMetal Alchemist Cosplay from the attached sites, you can discover different superb Cosplayers to portray and personate the mythical protagonists from anime and manga in all kinds of global convention. Though I am a big fan of the manga, I still can (tm)t reveal too many excellent cosplayers easily. Japanese moviegoers who see next month's live-action Thermae Romae film will receive a "special edition" of the manga, while supplies last. Mari Yamazaki, the original creator of the time-traveling comedy manga, drew the special edition bonus herself. Starting on the movie's opening day (April 28), 1 million copies of the special edition manga will be given away. A similar manga present promotion was held for One Piece Film Strong World in 2009 and for the Fullmetal Alchemist: The Sacred Star of Milos film last year.



Fullmetal Alchemist is a worldwide famous manga and anime series written and illustrated by Hiromu Arakawa, so I suppose there is no need to talk more about its story. The simultaneous comparable Axis Powers Hetalia Cosplay hit the manga top list with it.
