I admit it–I thought manga was for kids. This was perhaps because my only exposures to the cross-cultural phenomenon were 1) pictures of disproportionate and childish looking characters on my friends’ walls, and 2) the description of manga as “Japanese comics”. However, I soon learned that this portrayal of characters is called “chibi” and that manga is far more than mere comic books. I was hooked by my first experience of manga, the opening chapter of FullMetal Alchemist, Vol. 1. Read the rest of this entry »
Finished with KHR, season 4. Again, I LOVED IT!
This time I have more nitpicks than I did with season two, but this idea is just so original. Epic wuv. I’ll outline the plot now:
So Reborn is hit with Lambo’s 10-Year Bazooka. And uh oh…well…no one appears in his place. So to try and get answers, Tsuna accidentally gets blasted into the future and finds out two things. One: In 10 years, Sawada Tsunayoshi will have lost his life. Two: The 10-Year Bazooka is malfunctioning. He’s going to be staying a while.
So there are a lot of places to get manga: A local library, a store . . . it’s pretty easy to find. But where do you find anime? I have several places I get mine, so I’ll list off a couple of good, legal places right here. Read the rest of this entry »
Well Nessa pretty much summed up what was going on in her first post so if you have no idea what’s going down go to this post here: Nessa’s First Post. However, if you’re like me, then you’re probably too lazy to read her post as well as mine…so just read mine. XD Anyways, Nessa and I are debating over which is better, Manga, Anime, or…… Manga. Of course Manga is much better than Anime. If you haven’t figured it out by now, I’m defending Manga.
So why is Manga better? Read the rest of this entry »
Hey! So it’s Vanessa here again, and it’s time for a debate!
…If you can imagine evil music playing in the background, please do.
Anyway…so Kevin Zhu (a new blogger) and I are going to do a debate that animetards and mangatards have been fighting tooth and nail about for freaking ages: Which is better? Anime or Manga? I’m defending Anime, and I’m going to tell you guys why Anime is better than Manga.
So. Why? Read the rest of this entry »
So I realized (more of reminded) that a lot of people still don’t watch anime, even if a bunch of people already do, and unless I give some reasons, my “WATCH THIS IT’S GOOD OMG” is probably not going to cut it with people. So I’m going to give you 10 reasons to start watching anime, or at least 10 reasons anime and manga are good.
