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.

Secret Santa 2021 Wish List

Here's a list of 10 anime that I like, as well as my favorite characters from each (you can pick one or any combination of the ones I've listed). If you aren't familiar with any of them, I have listed some characters from my original stories. If you don't want to draw those either, you can draw me a Pokemon-- any Pokemon you like.

Secret Santa 2020 Wishlist

I'm just copying and pasting the same thing over and over again. Here's a list of 10 anime and all my OCs.

Since I already got my Death Note, Attack on Titan, Cardcaptor Sakura, Sailor Moon, and Assassination Classroom wishes, I won't be asking for those.

The Manga and Anime

In no particular order...

Fullmetal Alchemist I'm just that predictable. I prefer the manga/Brotherhood continuity. If you didn't know by now, I'm a total Greed fangirl. I also like Alphonse. Heck, any of the characters would be fine, since I like almost all of them on some level.

Puella Magi Madoka Magica I watched the series and the movies. I'm not sure which girl is my favorite, so I guess Madoka herself is a safe bet. Really, I'd be fine with any of the magical girl characters.

Fruits Basket The reboot gives me so many feelings! My request is for any of the Zodiac members, either in human or animal form. Or you could draw one of them with Tohru.

Magi I've seen both seasons, and I'm reading the manga, but I haven't gotten to manga-only territory yet. My favorite character is Alibaba, but all of the main characters are so likable that I'd be happy with one or more of them, too.

Spice and Wolf I've seen both seasons of the anime, but I haven't read the light novels or manga. My favorite character is Holo, but I like Lawrence a lot, too. If you like, you can draw some cute fluff with them together (hint, hint).

Gurren Lagann It's been some time since I've seen it, but my memories of it are vivid. I can't decide on a favorite, so any of the main characters will do.

The Seven Deadly Sins I only watched one season, but I have completed the manga. My favorite characters are Diane, Ban, and King (not necessarily in that order). From what I hear, Diane's birthday is supposed to be on December 24 (a day before mine). Also Ban x Elaine makes me melt with happiness.

Naruto/Naruto Shippuden I haven't watched it in some time; I kind of paused it right when they're gearing up for the war. I don't really care about spoilers with Naruto because the plot's been ruined for me several times over. I'll go with any of the young 12 Leaf ninja.

Inuyasha After putting in way too many hours, I finially finished. Shippou and Sango are my favorite characters. Really, anyone from Kagome's party is fine by me.

My Hero Academia I watched all of the anime so far, but I haven't read the manga at all. My favorite character is Izuku. I also like All Might and Ochako. Heck, I'd be happy with most any character (except for that sticky, pervy, grape boy who I hope bleeds to death).

Final notes: I don't actually celebrate Christmas. I'm just doing the SS because my birthday falls on Christmas. So please don't add anything religious. Also, please follow theO's rules, meaning: keep it safe for work.

If you plan on making a Wallpaper, my screen dimensions are 1920 x 1080.

Thanks in advance, S.S.! I'm excited to see what you come up with. ^_^

SS Reunion Wishlist

And now it's time for a Secret Santa wishlist! Thanks to Elricz and Lena for hosting because I almost thought it wasn't going to happen this year.

Most of this list was directly copied from last year's list and the year before that. As usual, 10 anime and all OCs. I'm listing where I am in each anime series because I don't want spoilers.

Puella Magi Madoka Magica I watched the series, but not the third movie. I'm not sure which girl is my favorite, so I guess Madoka herself is a safe bet. Really, I'd be fine with any of the magical girl characters.

Assassination Classroom I just finished this a few months ago (so many feelings!). Koro-sensei is my favorite character in the series.

Magi I've seen both seasons, and I'm reading the manga, but I haven't gotten to manga-only territory yet. My favorite character is Alibaba, but all of the main characters are so likable that I'd be happy with one or more of them, too.

Spice and Wolf I've seen both seasons of the anime, but I haven't read the light novels or manga. My favorite character is Holo, but I like Lawrence a lot, too. If you like, you can draw some cute fluff with them together (hint, hint).

Gurren Lagann It's been some time since I've seen it, but my memories of it are vivid. I can't decide on a favorite, so any of the main characters will do.

The Seven Deadly Sins I FINALLY saw the first season of the anime, and I'm mostly up-to-date on the manga. My favorite characters are Diane, Ban, and King (not necessarily in that order). From what I hear, Diane's birthday is supposed to be on December 24 (a day before mine). Also Ban x Elaine makes me melt with happiness.

Naruto/Naruto Shippuden I haven't watched it in some time; I kind of paused it right when they're gearing up for the war. I don't really care about spoilers with Naruto because the plot's been ruined for me several times over. My request this year is anyone from Team Kurenai because they really got the short end of the stick action-wise.

Inuyasha I STILL haven't finished this anime (though I'm in the homestretch) and I haven't read the manga. I'm pretty sure I've been introduced to most (if not all) of the major players in the story, though. Shippou is still my favorite character, but I like the other main characters as well.

My Hero Academia My new obsession! I've watched the first two seasons. My favorite character is Izuku. I also like All Might and Ochako. Heck, I'd be happy with most any character (except for that sticky, pervy, grape boy who I hope bleeds to death).

SS Is Live!

Elricz and Lena are hosting the SS this year! For more info, please go to their SS World and read the directions.

Secret Santa Wishlist 2017

The year is flying by, which means it's time for another Secret Santa wishlist!

Most of this list was directly copied from last year's list. As usual, 10 anime and all OCs. I'm listing where I am in each anime series because I don't want spoilers.

Assassination Classroom I've completed the first season, but haven't started the second. I haven't read the manga, either, though I have a feeling that it was adapted faithfully. Koro-sensei is my favorite character in the series.

Magi I've seen both seasons, and I'm reading the manga, but I haven't gotten to manga-only territory yet. My favorite character is Alibaba, but all of the main characters are so likable that I'd be happy with one or more of them, too.

Spice and Wolf My new obsession! I've seen all of the first season and some of the second. I haven't read the light novels or manga. My favorite character is Holo, but I like Lawrence a lot, too. If you like, you can draw some cute fluff with them together (hint, hint).

Gurren Lagann It's been some time since I've seen it, but my memories of it are vivid. I can't decide on a favorite, so any of the main characters will do.

Sailor Moon I've read the manga, seen all of Crystal, and I've finished the first three seasons of the original anime. I don't care about spoilers, and the continuity is your choice. My favorite is Sailor Saturn, but any of the Guardians (I guess that's the official term now) is cool with me.

The Seven Deadly Sins I'm not up to date on the manga (thanks, Crunchyroll), and I haven't seen the anime (thanks, Netflix). The last part I read from the manga is when the Sins finally reunite. My favorite characters are Diane, Ban, and King (not necessarily in that order). From what I hear, Diane's birthday is supposed to be on December 24 (a day before mine). Also Ban x Elaine makes me melt with happiness.

Naruto/Naruto Shippuden I haven't watched it in some time; I kind of paused it right when they're gearing up for the war. I don't really care about spoilers with Naruto because the plot's been ruined for me several times over. My request this year is anyone from Team Kurenai because they really got the short end of the stick action-wise.

Inuyasha I STILL haven't finished this anime (I'm plowing through the filler after the arc with the Band of Seven) and I haven't read the manga. I'm pretty sure I've been introduced to most (if not all) of the major players in the story, though. Shippou is still my favorite character, but I like the other main characters as well.
