Think about it... They killed off one of the show's most funniest characters Jiraiya, and now their going to kill the one of the second funniest and  the kick ass character of the series? Obviously they wont do anything that stupid..

Kakashi has too much going:

The only ninja that actually looks like a ninja
The coolest looking character
The coolest techniques
The character with a solo book  (Meaning he has the potential to be on a solo anime show)
The character with most interesting past!

He is alive.. You'll see..

Have you ever wondered or interested where and how the seiyuus, record their roles? Originally cited at Sankaku Complex, a compilation video of various seiyuus recording their roles for Animes. Many seiyuu's include: Death Note's Miyano Mamoru, "the" Shana, Kugimiya Rie and the great director, Miyazaki Hayao.

Just seeing how the seiyuus acted looks quite amazing and especially where the setting is. Although I don't know the others seiyuu from various animes portrayed in this video, its nice to see them record their roles. Especially when you see Miyazaki Hayao, directing Spirited Away, and eating KFC. It's rather awesome how they deliver their lines and the emotion, expessed through their portrayal.

Although, I can't find the embed button, Here's the link!

If you like Naruto, and really want to see them record their roles. Here's a video of them recording their roles for the first Naruto movie


You're Welcome ^_^

Full Metal Panic, more paritcularly Full Metal Panic: The Second Raid. It's very well written, executed almost perfectly, and he could probably relate to Lt. Clouseau.

P.S. I was never a fan of Valentines Day to begin with ^^

Hey everyone! It's Lawliet, I've never blogged on this site yet, so I though I should make one. 
By the way, this blog has nothing to do with anime.

Today I bought "Batman: The Killing Joke", and what do I think about it?............IT WAS ONE OF THE BEST COMICS I HAVE EVER READ!!! It was simply amazing. I'm a huge Batman fan by the way and my favorite villain in any comic is The Joker, so you can imagine how I though this comic was so awesome. If you have not read The Killing Joke, read it now or I shall come to your house in the middle of the night with a chainsaw and kill you. (That's right, I know where you live!) Here's a picture from Killing Joke. If that did not just make want to read this comic something is wrong with you.

See ya later!

Ok those who are not evil and can actually RP please report here..

I need at least five that are in the good guys side, I mean Veritas has kick evil's butts with four members before, so we can do it to XD

I'm willing to fight alone but seriously I could only last until my chakra is fully drain so is not a good idea XD

It's full of immense gore, and suspense. The action and drama in this anime is incredible. And the dialoque is excellent :))

I rarely buy a figure because i have a small budget and i always wanna stick to my regular manga`s, comics and magazines.
And ofcourse i always save money for overly expensive trips to markets and conventions :)

But today i was in a Japanese hype store and saw a few cute Kamen Rider Kubrick figures.
Only € 10 pp that`s cheap luckely i already knew the regular import prize is normally € 20 - 40 pp so i bought two ^^


I also bought some manga`s
  • Chibby Vampire 6 + 7
  • Princess Ai 1 + 2 (for my mom)
  • Black Jack 8 + 6 (finally)

That`s about it i tried XD

Hey, besides my obsession with writing fanfics and Ranma 1/2, I also like sharing things about my life IRL. I don't like getting too personal of course lol but I am not afraid to admitt that there are certain things about me that aren't that cool... one of the major problems I carry is a bad case of Anxiety and panic. It's so bad sometimes that I can't even talk on a phone when it wrings. I feel these weird sensations in my heart, chest, and throat, and it makes me afraid to engage in any social atmosphere.

I spend a lot of time by myself... I'm not exactly a loner, because I do things social as well like Uni and I take Mandarin Chinese classes every wednesday night. But I'm lonely like a Ninja. Almost invisible... well that's how I feel sometimes. I'm not sure if anyone has experienced a bad case of Anxiety the way I am explaining it, but if so, please write me. ^^

Anime and manga fans are distinctive, as a fanbase, said Right Stuf President and C.E.O. Shawne Kleckner. “While you’re part of a larger group – people who enjoy and admire Japanese animation – there is also a tremendous amount of diversity and individuality. No two anime fans are exactly alike, and we think this is something that should be embraced and celebrated. In this sense, a single fan can be an ‘action-romance-mecha-comedy Otaku’ -- or whatever other individually-specific mix reflects his or her unique interests.”

The launch page includes a contest, with a $100 gift certificate to as its grand prize, as well as the first two “featured Otaku” – the Ninja Otaku and the Kawaii Otaku. New Otaku (and more content and contests) will be added to the page throughout the year.

Ok, i love my country like...a lot and i noticed it's been getting lots of pubicity lately, much of it thanks to Mercs 2: World in Flame. And since i don't know how it looks in the game i wanted to show the real thing. But not the huge cities, just like the most beautiful parts of it. And keep in mind that i've been to every damn corner of this country so i know all these places really well.

First of all Welcome to Venezuela:

This is the Bolivar peak:

This is Roraima (What's on the top has been a mistery for scientist for a while):

This is the Rafael Urdaneta Bridge (I live very close to it in Maracaibo):

This is the capital (Caracas):

This is a beach in Margarita:

This is just another beautiful part of it:

And finally what i consider to be the most beatiful thing in my country, The saint Angel's fall:

So there you have it, that's the most beautiful part of my country, i hope you like it.

Hi. I'm Ranma [Ranko] Saotome.
I'm permanently female, both in RP and at heart. I am a biological male.
I write ghost stories and fanfics. I am currently working on one for the site! :)
I am also looking for open minded friends who aren't judgmental.
I may be weird, but I am nice, and open minded.
You can either call me Ran-chan or Baku-chan, lol. :)

Obama's town hall
Obama's town hall
What do a presidential town hall meeting and an anime convention industry panel have in common?

If you guessed a similar Q&A process, you guessed right. It struck me one day, as I watched President Obama take part in a town hall meeting in Florida regarding his economic stimulus package, that although the town hall surely covers topics more dire and immediate than, say, FUNimation’s panel at New York Comic Con, they still both offer an interesting closeness of character to one another.

Take, for example, the goal of those attendees with their questions. They want information, and more often than not, they want to have a legitimate effect on both the proceedings and on the subject of the event (i.e. FUNimation or the President).

There’s also a similarity of presentation: the rehearsed feeling of the questions, the turns of phrase intended to be particularly clever or striking. And then there’s the attitude. There’s a certain respect, even reverence for anime and manga company representatives, but at the same time there’s sort of a feeling amongst fans: we are the almighty Consumer, and we are who you need to please. Similar to this we have those asking questions of President Obama: we made you, and if you don’t deliver, we can unmake you.

New York Comic Con
New York Comic Con
Finally, there’s the ultimate goal. What do the people want out of their questions? As I said earlier, information and to have an effect are the primary goals. Question-askers also seem to often want to impress those around them with their cleverness, their tough story, or whatever it is they share.

But there’s also something these people want that will never actually occur in a panel. When someone asks in the midst of a panel, “will you license XYZ title?” they would probably die for joy if the rep comes back and says “you know, I’m not supposed to say anything yet, but…yes, we’re getting that title.” Which, of course, no rep would ever say, and no regular convention goer would ever expect it, even if they might fantasize.

Similarly, I think a lot of these people at the Obama town hall meeting are probably secretly hoping that he’ll come out with a magic solution to their problems, that he’ll suddenly bust out a brilliant idea or something along those lines. Or maybe even that he’ll pull some kind of Oprah moment and give them all a car or something. (Hey, I mentioned this was fantasy, not what they actually expect, right?)

So, there you have it, just a little observation: when you’re standing up to ask that anime or manga publisher to pick up your favorite title, you’re probably not all that different from those demanding answers from our President.

I barely know anyone who has seen or watched this show.But I love it!!!!!!!!!!!!!
If you have never heard of it you need to look it up.Its about a online game called THE WORLD.In the show the main charecters are twins.And their in-game charecters are Shugo and Reina.And the play as a pair of legendary charecters that they won.and they come across some BUGS that will put you in a coma if you get killed in the game by them.This show is really good but the series ik kinda short.If you like funny,fantasy anime shows then you will find this right up your alley.
