Non-Japanese manga

August 20, 2009

So a lot of the younger generation of otaku seem to always dream off making their own manga series. So my question to you is, do you read Non-Japanese manga? Though they are few I do find some that really interest me. The one above happens to be one of them. Though it can be slow at times and the art may not attract everyone, I really appritiate it’s individuality. Tokyopop actually made the first book into an imanga on their youtube account here: Bizenghast playlist .Tokyopop is one of the few companies that I see take these leaps into American manga. Other non-Japanese series that they helped get out in the market are Fool’s Gold, Dramacon, and Orange Crows.

Their is also a certain non-Japanese manga that seems to be just as popular as Japanese manga sometimes which is Manhwa. Manhwa is just basically Korean manga. I haven’t read any Manhwa myself, but I know that one will definitely grab my attention someday.

So have you ever read non-Japanese manga?

What’s happening with me, and questions for you

So on Monday a big long issue started. Our cable and internet provider suddenly dropped us for no apparent reason. When we finally got ahold of them they explained that they were switching companies and that we would have to upgrade to get our connection back. They never notified us of this before the drop.( If you read Dukie’s article here ,she had a similar experience) This became a huge long mess that lasted for five days until We finally got our internet back up Friday night. I would love to spend longer bashing the company, but I rather not be one of those flaming blogger’s who only writes hate articles.

In other news, yesterday I went and saw Ponyo. I am definitely a Ghibli fanboy, but that doesn’t change my opinion that sometimes Ghibli’s films can be really kiddy. Ponyo was really fun to watch though, and sometimes their was so much happening on the screen that my eyes would hurt trying to take it all in. I’m really happy that Disney finally did such a wide release for a Ghibli film. I remember when I had seen spirited away in a small theater with only four people including myself. Unlike then, there were way more the four people in the theater. I would say that it was over 50% filled. Oh yeah! I was unlucky enough to get the infamous crying baby to sit next to me and guess what he did! He gave me this long evil stare and then bam! He grabbed my straw! If their wasn’t just ice left I would have pulled out a can of baby butt kicking. Just kidding. I was just happy he didn’t barf on me.^^

Also school has been really taking up all my time lately and the only time I ever get to write anything for my blog is on the weekends. I think that I’m going to try and write multiple articles during the weekend and then just add them to my blog throughout the week. Every night I have on average 3- 4 homework assignments, but tomorrow I’ll be having two quizzes so the homework load will hopefully be lighter. I’m really thankful for this because tomorrow is the first anime club meeting of the year! Since the people who ran it last year graduated I had to start it this year and I hope we can get a lot more done. The first day will just be introductions and elections, but I’m hoping that next week we can start up our fund raiser so that everyone will be able to go to a con this year.

As for questions for you… I’ve been wondering lately if you want me to post my dvd and manga haul’s too.I did it once, but it didn’t really seem to interest anybody. Also what other things besides figures( if any^^) do you like to read about on blogs? And lastly, would you be intersted in a blogroll/ Banner exchange?

1/8????

So I was just sitting at my desk and as I was looking around at my figures and a question that I quite often ask myself popped in my head again. “Are all of these figures really scaled?” (more…)

Wandering Warrior Miku

August 3, 2009

CIMG2882So I finally opened my Reina(Leina if you prefer) figure and I found something pretty interesting you could do with the cast off. Does anyone fancy this Warrior Miku? Also, kudos to anyone who can guess the backround. If you read my last post I bet it will be easy to figure out.

Happy Birthday to me :( or :) ?

August 3, 2009

Tomorrow is not only my birthday, but something a little less exciting too…… My first day of the new school year. Though I am particularly fond of school, it is never a good feeling seeing the last day of summer vacation slip through you fingers. Even if I’m nervous though I can’t say that I’m not looking forward to the new year . I got a ton of new classes which I think will be a nice change to my schedule, and all of my friends and I at least have one class that we all take together. I geuss tomorrow isn’t actually going to be as grim as I thought. Wow, blogging really helps you clear you mind^^;
