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.

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...

Caption Battle: Shots in the Dark

As you guys know (or not), Kita is hosting a Caption Battle Challenge, and I want to enter. So, let's have fun with this. Post any random captions in the comments and I'll draw a picture of my favorite. It's kind of like a regular caption battle in reverse.

Remember, this is a friendly competition. The winner gets a dedication based on the caption. You can submit as many captions as you like. The captions can be broad or series-specific-- whichever you prefer. You can also ask questions or make comments, but be sure to let me know if those questions/comments aren't captions.

The competition begins... now!

Emperor's New Livestream [OFF]

Sorry for the late start. I hope I didn't inconvenience anyone. Anyway, join me!

Thanks to Nikki for stopping by. No one else showed, but at least it gave me a little motivation to finish something.

Long Time No Post

Hey, people. I know I haven't made a post in some time. That's because I haven't had a whole lot to say. Well, now I do.

I'm still having that problem of wanting to draw but not knowing what to draw. Then again, I still need to work on those last two "Ask Us" comic pages (how many years has it been?). I want to knock those out of the way, but at the same time, I don't want to work on them. Still, I feel that I need to work on them so that I can start other stuff with a clean slate (like the caption battle thing).

Also, this has been my mindset as of late (please excuse the Tumblr-esque format):
Me: Hmm, I should really draw my OCs.
Me: Maybe I should design those new OCs. That way I could get feedback on what looks best.
Me: *Draws another picture of Greed.*

I guess all that has to do with Anime Central coming up. I bought a new pair of shades and some more breathe-able pants. I also was able to get a hotel room, so I'm super hyped about that. And there'll actually be an official FMA photoshoot. The only thing they wont have is karaoke (as far as I know). Oh well. I'll just randomly burst into song at times. Why the heck not?

Just thought of something else I gotta do: those album reviews. I keep mentally writing them while I'm out and about, but once I get to my computer, I can't form a single sentence.

I guess I'll leave you guys with a question to think about. Anyone wanna see me livestream this Saturday? Those usually boost my motivation.

Keep Calm and PANIC!

I bet a lot of you are wondering what happened to theO. I be a lot of you are thinking the end is nigh. Let me explain, to the best of my knowledge, what's going on.

At first I was freaking out, too. Fortunately, Starscream (aka Axel) made an unofficial chat page where I voiced my concerns. I was reassured that this was only a maintenance issue. While I was relieved about that, I would have preferred a little warning.

The chat regulars seem to know Adam on a more personal basis than the average theO user. They seem to know what's going on. The problem is that (a) maybe I'm wrong and they don't know what the deal is, or (b) they've been sworn to secrecy for some reason.

The fact that theO was down two days for maintenance is irksome, but I'm guessing that it was very much needed. It's this communication breakdown that bothers me the more than anything. I'd at least like an active mod to keep the peace so that this post-maintenance freak-out doesn't happen again.
