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.

On a Mission from Adam

I have been entrusted with an important mission from the Bossman. It is a poll of Otakuites.

Please answer the following questions:

1. Would you consider yourself a new-school or an old-school otaku?
2. Are you aware of the concept of glomping?
3. Do you ever use the term "glomp"?

Please answer this poll within the week... or I'll start sending PMs to random people. Gahahaha!

Update: Thanks for all the comments so far! There are so many that I don't think I can reply to them all.

Everyone, tell your friends that this poll is open. Also, I'll be bumping this post about once a day, so apologies in advance for spamming your Backroom.

Update part deux: If you're wondering what the reason is for this, the answer is: just for fun. ^_^

Need to Focus (Update)

I may not be doing any writing challenges this November, but I got to thinking about my writing. I've kind of neglected it for a long time. I think it's because I have too many things going on in regards to writing, and I need to prioritize. The problem is this: what takes priority?

So, here's where you guys come in. What should I be working on writing-wise? Please vote for as many as you like.

  • The Rebels of Planet Aadau (1 vote)
  • Destination
  • Survival Instincts (1 vote)
  • Those three album reviews that I promised forever ago

I'm also debating on whether or not I should post my song lyrics here on theO. I'd either post them in my Library or make a new World. Either way, I'm setting it so that only my subscribers can see it.

Update: So, the verdict on posting lyrics is that I should do it. If anyone has any objections, I'll be posting it in my Library, and making that World it visible only to my subscribers. I apologize for any inconvenience this may cause to non-subscribers.

From One Thing to Another

Well, I didn't finish those three sketches like I thought I would. All I have is a half a sketch. Which I didn't post. Oh well. I won't let it get to me though.

I do plan to draw a picture of each one of my OCs. At least now I don't have to rush through them.

So, who's up for NaNoWriMo? Kidding. I'm not even gonna try.

Already I'm getting bombarded with holiday cheer via advertisements and such, which reminds me... are we doing Secret Santa type stuff this year? I guess I'm the first to bring it up. (Correct me if I'm wrong.)

Well, I guess that's all for now. Laterz.

The Story of My Online Life

Me: I'm going to undertake this art challenge!

Also me: *Messes up and disappears for a week or so.*

Needless to say, I'm not going to finish OCtober. It's like all the inspiration drained out of me. I don't know why. Maybe I'll get my groove back before the end of the month. My goal is three more drawings before October ends. Let's see if I can accomplish that at least.

Oooooooooops (Updated)

I forgot about OCtober for the past two days! O_O I'll catch up, but I think the next couple off sketches will be headshots.

Update: Well, I've had as many days off as I've had on. Something tells me I'm not going to finish this. I'm considering wrapping up my Destination characters' sketches and calling it quits. I hate to say it, but I'm a bit burned out. Also, my wrist started hurting again.
