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.

DYNAMIC ENTRY!

WHAT'S UP PEOPLE?!

Alright, enough caps abuse. I'm over-caffeinated but I shouldn't take that out on your eyeballs.

Lately, I've been getting art stuff done. Not only did I finish up my queue of OC answers to your questions, I started some new art. If anyone wants me to livestream them later tonight, I can. That will be from about 9 to 10:30 Central, if you're interested.

I wasn't just productive on art. I finished up another chapter of "Rebels", too. I really had to beef it up from the original draft. It's still a rather short chapter-- kinda cliche, too. I haven't looked at it since I typed it out, but once I finish proof-reading, I'll post it.

Enough about me. I'm going to talk about the anime that I'm watching. OK, that's sort of about me, but in a more passive role. I started a new one (and by "new" I mean new for me) called Spice and Wolf. I'm really enjoying it. Sure, I'm having a little trouble following the talk about money and market values, but I still find it entertaining.

I'm really behind on my anime-watching. I mean, I missed the new season of Attack on Titan in its entirety. Heck, there are a lot of series in which I finished the first season, but haven't picked up the second. I don't know exactly how many series I can watch at once, but I think I'm going to try to start a lot of them.

This brings me to my next point. I'm on the fence about continuing some series. One that comes to mind is Noragami. Although the art was beautiful, I wasn't exactly smitten with the series as a whole. I heard the second season is better, but I still don't know whether I want to continue it or not.

For the record, I'm in no hurry to start Boruto. I may never watch it at all.

To be honest, a great deal of the anime I want to watch would be considered old. In fact, none of them are currently running. Either they've wrapped up or are on hiatus. This is why I feel so behind. I'm not stressing, though. It's only anime.

Keba's Big Ol' To-Do List

OK, so it's come to this. I've been making lots of lists for various things, so I might as well make one for theO. This will be for my drawing, writing, posting and other stuff.

Higher priorities will be in bold.

Writing
The Rebels of Planet Aadau: Write chapter 4-- UNDERWAY!
Destination: Finish chapter 7. Post chapter 6 through whenever this arc ends.
Survival Instincts: Give chapters 9 and 10 a tune-up and post.
Develop ideas about mythological creatures story.
Album reviews (0/3)
Develop ideas about comic book characters in the "real world" story (low priority).
Develop ideas about a girl who finds a portal to another world and has adventures with a talking sheep (low priority).

Drawing
The Rebels of Planet Aadau "movie poster"-- UNDERWAY! (Inking digitally)
Anime portraits of bands/music artists?
"Hero in Armor"
"Clap Your Hands"
"Metalhead"
"Cats"
"Inner Children"
"You Look Familiar" (low priority)

Manga-ing which is totally a word
Get to Know an OC!: finish last two pages and post.
Start planning Fullmetal Alchemist Brotherhood fan manga.
Take poll as to whether people would want to read a gag comic about the band Linkin Park. I'm serious.
Draw summer-themed Fullmetal Alchemist gag comic.

Yeah, that got really long really quick. I do realize that life happens while you make plans, but I need a plan in order to conquer life.

Get to Know an OC

External Image

Welcome to Get to Know an OC, where you ask all my original characters whatever you want. Within reason, of course.

Now let's have some introductions.

Naomi: Hello, I'm Naomi. First and foremost, I am of the Children of Terra. Please be respectful of my religion when you ask questions.

Marshall: Hey. I'm Marshall. *Munches on a potato chip.*

Dice: Call me Dice. Nice to meet ya.

Meh-Eh-Au: Hi, my name is Meh-Eh-Au. I hope we can be friends.

Meh-Eh-Weoa: H-hello.

Conus: What are these hairless creatures and why are they staring at me? *Glares.*

Keba: Hi, I'm Keba. I'll do my best to answer your questions.

Jon: Hey, my name's Jon. I'm not sure why you'd want to ask me anything, since my life's not that interesting. I'm just a musician.

When asking questions, keep in mind that Dice, Keba, and Jon aren't very open about their pasts. They're kind of spoilers, anyway.

If you want to ask any of my other characters anything, let me know.

Progress:

  • Elricz (4/4)
  • MangaKid (4/4)
  • Aryia (1/1)
  • Kita (1/1)

4th of JuLivestream [OFF]

Testing, testing. Is this thing on?

*Breaks stuff.*

Well, it worked for Elricz, at least. Sorry, Toya. I have no idea what went wrong or whether it was on your end or mine. I hope it works the next time I do it.

ACen Report 2017

ACen '17 was a BLAST and infinitely better than last year. I actually booked a hotel room this time so that I didn't have to drive up and back a whole buncha times. I brought my friend "Edward" along, which made things better because I didn't have...
