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.

[UPDATE] Six Fanarts

I'm considering attempting the "Six Fanarts" challenge thing that's going around. Of course I'd keep the post strictly to theO, since I'm not very social with social media. So... should I do it?

Update: I've decided I'm gonna do it! Hopefully I can get six different people to help me out. Hit me with as many suggestions as possible. I don't care if your list is 20 characters. I actually want a lot to choose from. Even if someone has already suggested a character, you can suggest it too. Go on and list all your favorites!

I'm A New Mod

Well, as the title states, I'm a new, full-fledged moderator here at theO. This means I have access to front page announcements, reports, editing user settings, and the like. Now that this has transpired, I'm here to serve you. Please let me know what you need. Keep in mind that I'm not the bossman, so I can't fix bugs or modify code in any way. Having said that, I will do anything in my power to help you, even if it means contacting the team with issues.

Now that I've made my announcement, let me leave you with a question and a request.

The question is this: do you want me to make a separate "Mod World"? I remember one of the mods did this back in the day, and I loved reading it. It made theO feel more transparent and in-tune with its users.

My request is that you spread the word about who to come to when you need help with the site. I don't have as many subscribers as a lot of you, so if you could make a World post linking to this post, I would greatly appreciate it.

Being Social in Isolation

Hi guys! How is everyone doing? I know times are strange, to say the least.

I'm in the process of drawing a picture. I haven't really gotten that far into it. Still, something's better than nothing.

Now that I have so much time to myself, I was wondering if I should open up for art trades. As you know, I take a lot of time to make my art, so I'm wondering whether trades are a good idea or not.


I haven't posted since last September! Time to brush the dust off of this blog.

To be honest, I don't have many creative endeavors going on. I haven't drawn a thing yet this year. Part of it is lack of inspiration. Part of it is lack of confidence. I'm at a point where drawing just isn't all that enjoyable. Sometimes I wonder if this is what it means to be an adult. Or it could be a case of depression. In any case, I haven't been drawing, so that explains my lack of activity. I do patrol theO daily, though.

I'm also watching a lot of anime. I've picked up a lot of series this year, though I haven't completed any of them yet. Check my Anime-Planet watch-list if you like. It's easier than typing out everything that I'm watching. Plus, it's a little plug for Anime-Planet, which I've been recommending to all the anime fans in my life. I'm actually starting to get to know people there.

To end this post on a more positive note, does anyone have any music they recommend? I gravitate more towards rock and alternative, though I'm willing to listen to anything except religious or country music. I'm mainly looking for albums, since I have Spotify, but if you have individual song recommendations, I'm open to those too. Thanks in advance! ^_^

Hello, Friends!

Long time no post, huh? Stuff in my life has been happening.

I got a new computer and a new tablet a few months ago. Sad to see Windows 7 go, but my old computer was sloooow. Like a snail. Un escargot. More like an escar-stop. I'm not funny. As for the tablet, I got it because I picked up a promotional flyer at ACen with a discount on certain models of tablets. I figured that since my old tablet doesn't work with Windows 10, I might as well get a new one while the promotion was going on. I haven't used the tablet much, which brings me to my next point.

I haven't been drawing much. In fact, I haven't completed anything since the SS. I wonder if OCtober might change that, but I doubt it. I've kind of neglected my OCs. I haven't written anything new either. I want to make some progress with my OCs and their stories, but most of what draw and write right now doesn't look good to me.

What I have been making is music. I'm finally, finally, finally recording my album in a studio! Slowly but surely, I'm moving forward with my ambition. I got all the parts recorded for my first song, though I'm thinking I should redo the vocals. I hope I actually can (long story regarding the "actually" bit). If not, I'm going on to my next song. My hope is to get the album done sometime next year. I apologize to the winners of my Challenge that I promised my music to. I didn't realize how much time this would take. I'm working on it, I swear!

Other than that, I've mostly been working and watching anime in my spare time. Among the ones I'm currently viewing are Blue Exorcist and My Hero Academia. I'm thinking about picking up another one or two, or watching a sequel series of something. We'll see.
