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.

Bad News (Unrelated to theO)

Guys, I'm going to have to go for emergency surgery soon, though I don't know when exactly. Just expect me to disappear for a little bit. I wanted to let you know because I consider you all my friends. Thanks for your understanding and support.

Update: Thank you for all the supportive comments. That means a lot to me. I don't have a date set yet as to when it'll happen. I just hope it doesn't conflict with Anime Central.

Update part deux: I saw the surgeon yesterday. He's giving me a choice between two surgical operations. He gave me the pros and cons of each. I just hope I make the right decision. Either option is going to be invasive, and I'll have to spend roughly a week in the hospital. No date has been set yet.

Apology for No Livestream This Weekend

Anyone interested? I can do it tonight or tomorrow night. Tonight would be most likely though.

I'm planning on doing several things that I would like some feedback on. They involve character design, anatomy, and/or coloring.

I'll be using Picarto.

Update: Due to lack of interest, I'm not going to do it tonight. If you guys want me to host one tomorrow, just leave a comment.

Update part deux: I'm soooooooooooooooooooo sorry that I didn't stream last night. Stuff happened, and it took up a lot of my time yesterday. Please accept my apology.


Explanation of the weird title: Art + Update = Arpdate

I've done a little art here and a little writing there. I finished a chapter of Destination and started a new one. Not sure why I felt like writing that one since it's my least popular piece, as far as I know. And I knew what I would write would be lousy, but I just wrote anyway. I'll edit it later.

I finished the basic coloring on my "movie poster". I don't know whether to post it or sit on it until I can figure out how to properly shade the thing. Then again, I messed up on the coloring of one character, so I'll have to fix that. What happened was I shaded on the base color layer by accident and it kind of looks really ugly.

A bunch of people signed up for the yearlong event I'm organizing. Then some of them announced that they were migrating from theO. *Facepalm.* Maybe I should track down people and beg by PM.

Well Then

One month of the year has gone by and no finished art from me. I guess I'm not making my New Year's resolution quota. Oddly enough, I'm not that disappointed. I, at least, made some progress on two different pictures in the past 31 days. Hopefully I'll get something done this month.

You know, it's a little sad that this World has devolved from my opinions on anime to non-updates on my art. Oh well. It is what it is.

Incoming Livestream!

Would anyone be interested in seeing a livestream today? (Might delete this later if there is no interest.)

Update: AAAAAHHHH! I forgot about this! And now my streaming program wants to update. And it's taking forever. I am soooooooo sorry!

It's about 6:30 CST as I type this. Am I too late?

Update part deux: Finally working. Join me!
