Anime VS Manga

If you haven't heard, all the cool people either watch anime, read manga or both.When it comes to manga and anime, I'm going to have to side with manga being the greater of the two.Of course anime has some advantages.It does add a sort of dimension with music, movement, sound, and color. I especially love it when I can identify one voice actor for a character of an anime to a character in another anime.Yet, there is one fatal flaw in more than a handful of anime though: story.I can't stand to see a great manga plot ruined when converted to the screen.

While being converted from page to screen, some story lines get some serious tweaks.I guess you could even go so far as to compare my Manga vs Anime to a Book vs Movie/Show type of discussion.If you've read My Sister's Keeper by Jodi Picoult and then watched the movie, you know what I mean.I don't see why they would have messed with the original story.I guess the movie people (technical term) think, "If it ain't broke, fix it until it is."Honestly, I thought the book was every shade of better and they missed a chance to tell a great story to a wider audience since more people watch television than read books.

Cosplay Trends 2011

It's pick a year and any convention season and with that come was a "cosplay trends".

The "Cosplay Trend" appears to find something to help both sunny and bad.

It's photography toasty when something gets popular, any more great actually do it, pick a cleaner the anime/game/mange found for uncertainness befits, any fresh it becomes.

T-McBee's Favourite Game Protagonists

Hey everyone! Here's the first written blog of T-McBee's Favourites, where I write a blog about a list of favourite things that doesn't go in any order from most to least or vis versa. Sometimes it is tough to do a top list of favourite things once in a while, so I'm going to name things that are close to my interests in anything.

On this list of T-McBee's Favourites, I'm going to briefly list down my favourite video game protagonists. Some may already know who my favourites are, but for those who don't know, here's a written list that will reveal it all. Keep in mind that these are my personal favourites, so if your favourites aren't shown here, please don't complain about it. You're welcome to mention your favourites by replying to this post or leaving a comment at

Hello world!

*Siiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiigh...* of course no one responded to my plea. I gave you people a whole week! I shall now just make the conclusion that I don't have any bros. Tear!

Anyways, I started thinking about what I would do since it was most likely my question would not be answered by Internet folk. I have decided that I'll try to put some of all three kinds of posts in each post. It would probs make everyone happy, especially me in the future.

So You Want to Watch Anime? Part 1

People often ask me what they should watch if they want to get into anime or have watched only a couple of shows. Obviously, it pays to ask people what genres they like, as anime is just another sub-medium of television and TV, movie and book preferences are all valid. Some of the shows listed here are often noted to be aimed at people who are very knowledgeable about anime, but they are on the list because they stand on their own, and none of us are rookie media consumers.

This list is designed in part to present you with a variety of genres, so you could watch these shows in order to have a better place to start from when looking for additional material - based on what you like and don't like. Future posts will cover movies, and some more shows based on genres and themes. All posts will be organized .

Fullmetal Alchemist Brotherhood, Hellsing Ultimate


Somanycharacters I am a huge fan of the original anime series Fullmetal Alchemist. It's a near-perfect vision of what anime should be. It has drama, humor, love, action, suspense, you name it, it has it. It was so good, in fact, I proclaimed it to be Something very common in anime is for a popular manga to be animated before it has concluded. This happened with the original Fullmetal Alchemist series. Once the animators hit episode 34, they had caught up to the manga. They then had to create a brand new ending to finish the series. Fast forwarding several years, the manga has been completed. Not wanting to miss any chance at milking a cash-cow, the series was remade, from the beginning, to tell the entire story. This, unfortunately, was a huge mistake. The first 34 episodes of the TV series (I don't know how many books of the manga it took) is compressed into a mere 13 episodes. The content is told in an extremely hurried fashion. While the previous series used these episodes to introduce us to the characters and to slowly build the drama, the new series rushes through everything so quickly it doesn't have a chance to breathe. "That's OK," I told myself. "On future rewatches I can watch the first 34 original TV series episodes, and then watch the new series starting at episode 14 to see the entire story."

My Mom's Back!

Hello world!

Yep, after almost 2weeks, she is back. I know, I didn't mention it before, but my post was already long enough...

Just Some Biz That Happened This Week

Hai world! (thanks to Broranges, I've gotten into the habit of writing 'hai' and 'bai' a lot)

So a friend of mine, who I've seen before but never actually talked to face to face, has been my e-mail pen pal for a while now. Something we discuss is anime and manga, and also we talked a little about fanfics. She told me that she was writing one, and I said the same back. However, don't remember if I've mentioned it, now the setting and stuff is all wacko in my story. I told her that, but she insisted that I at least give her a little piece of it, so I gave her the very first chapter. She told me that she's hooked! So it's already boosted my confidence, although it's still gonna be a while before I edit my book enough to give her more.

North Republic Industries

Vic Mignogna

Sorry for the delay! Expect another post Sunday evening!

This week, I'll be talking about a legend of the anime industry.

Het Couples I Support

Just like the Yaoi and Yuri Couples I Support post, this will be updated now and then as I remember. I am doing this out of not knowing what to post next. All that was mentioned on the aforementioned post will be the same here.

Just because it's a longer list than the yaoi/yuri pairings list doesn't make it less that I support them. Just because there are some from various works listed doesn't mean I support the rest; I could mean I don't remember whether or not I support them or their names.

For those who follow me on , you might know that for the month of September, I did a 30 Day Character Challenge. For each day, there was a specific character to draw, and I did most of them digitally. Here are some of my favorites!

This is Edward Elric from the anime series, Fullmetal Alchemist: Brotherhood. I did him for "the funniest character" because I love his sudden outbursts when people make fun of his height. This is Leo from Rick Riordan's Heroes of Olympus series. I drew him for "the hottest character" because he literally is flaming, being the son of Hephaestus!This is Chihiro from Studio Ghibli's Spirited Away. I decided to draw her for "a character from a previous favorite fandom." This year, it was sadly announced that Hayao Miyazaki, the founder of Studio Ghibli, wold be retiring. He is such a great inspiration to me and his films will always be my favorites!When talking about "a character who acts like you," it is none other than Mabel Pines of Gravity Falls who comes to my mind. She is so quirky, talkative, creative, and weird. I just see so much of myself in her!Who are these four characters? Well they are Aang, Katara, Toph, and Sokka; better known as the Gaang! I drew them for "a group of characters most like you and your friends" because they all have their differences, but together, they make one kickbutt team!Lastly, this is Vanellope von Schweetz from Disney's Wreck-It-Ralph. I drew her for "a character who makes you cry when they cry." My heart absolutely broke when Ralph destroyed her go-kart. You could see how much she really wanted to race, and all the hurt in her eyes. *sobs*

I'm very proud of these digital artworks. I'm trying my best to practice more with them while still practicing my traditional art. What do you guys think?

Ace Attorney

At the same time that the upcoming crossover with Professor Layton was being developed with Shu Takumi himself writing the story, Takeshi Yamazaki(Writer and Director of the Investigations spinoff duology) took it upon himself to create the fifth entry in the series. Yamazaki proves with this one that he is the right man to take over for Takumi. Let's take a look:

First Impressions: Gundam Build Fighters, Unbreakable Machine Doll

Mate, listen. Just because I'm an otaku pig who loves moe/ecchi pandering garbage doesn't mean that I think that all efforts at pandering are equal. I look upon your feeble attempts to satisfy my shallow kinks and I laugh. And for the record, your character design sucks.

I'll start this first impressions post with UNBREAKABLE MACHINE DOLL. I'd been looking forward to this show because it seemed like it would have some interesting world-building concepts. The cute girl on the promotional art had nothing to do with it, naturally. As it turned out, she was annoying, and almost every single aspect of this premiere was bland and uninteresting.

36. Fullmetal Alchemist: The Sacred Star of Milos

Today marks post # 36, which leaves 14 more to go. Happy first day of November, everybody!! We're only 22 DAYS AWAY FROM THE 50TH ANNIVERSARY OF DOCTOR WHO!!! AAAGGGHHH!! THE MONTH HAS FINALLY ARRIVED!! I can hardly contain my excitement! The big day is circled in blue on my calendar. :3

Okay! I'm really excited to talk about this movie post! It's a movie from a fandom that hasn't been mentioned yet on this blog, but that will soon be put to rights. Today's movie post is Fullmetal Alchemist: The Sacred Star of Milos.

Hot Fullmetal Alchemist Cosplay Is Top Listed

Browsing astonishing FullMetal Alchemist Cosplay from the attached sites, you can discover different superb Cosplayers to portray and personate the mythical protagonists from anime and manga in all kinds of global convention. Though I am a big fan of the manga, I still can (tm)t reveal too many excellent cosplayers easily. Japanese moviegoers who see next month's live-action Thermae Romae film will receive a "special edition" of the manga, while supplies last. Mari Yamazaki, the original creator of the time-traveling comedy manga, drew the special edition bonus herself. Starting on the movie's opening day (April 28), 1 million copies of the special edition manga will be given away. A similar manga present promotion was held for One Piece Film Strong World in 2009 and for the Fullmetal Alchemist: The Sacred Star of Milos film last year.

Fullmetal Alchemist is a worldwide famous manga and anime series written and illustrated by Hiromu Arakawa, so I suppose there is no need to talk more about its story. The simultaneous comparable Axis Powers Hetalia Cosplay hit the manga top list with it.
