InuYasha [01 Feb 2007|03:06pm]

so... InuYasha.  

I've been told to watch this anime for forever but I only just started watching it over the last few weeks on Adult Swim.  It's actually not that bad of a storyline, but the loose ends all over the place are a tad annoying.  I still prefer the darker series but this one holds my attention so that's saying something.  Anyway, what do you guys think of the series?  I know I should probably watch it from beginning to end, but I'm limited as to what's showing on the cartoon network at the time, as are most of us. ;p  

And yes, I'm trying to start discussions of sorts, so any comments are welcome! ^_^

I've been working a ton on my web site lately... I know this community is more geared towards anime and manga and such, but I thought some of yall might be able to give me some feedback. My site is http://www.naturesgirl.org

I'm using the same layout and colors for my art studio store which I'm hoping to launch in the next few weeks. What do you guys think? Any feedback is appreciated.

Anyhoo, I've been hooked on adult swim lately. I finally got through the entire Vandread series on encore a few months ago, so that's one more series down... and it only took four years for me to do!

I've noticed that I tend to lean more towards the 'serious' or 'darker' anime (with the exception of VanDread...) and I was wondering if you guys could help point out some similar series for me to keep an eye out for on ebay. The ones I like are:

Cowboy Bebop
Samurai Champloo
Studio Ghibli
Fullmetal Alchemist

I've heard that I might like witch hunter robin or wolf's rain. Anyhoo, hope all you nerds are doing well! =)

I don't see many Wolfs Rain icons around, so in the past two days I've cooked up 35 of 'em.


See all of them here.

Hey, how's everyone on this fine Friday? I'm great. Here's some Fruits Basket icons.


Yay! The rest can be found here!

All I ask is that you credit if used. Comments/flames/blah/etc accepted. I'm not picky.

Hey all... I think we need a better LJ icon for this community... what do you guys think? Anyone have one made that they'd like to contribute?

So I've been watching more anime lately... comes with the unemployment territory. I've been watching more Trigun, and Samurai Champloo. I also managed to watch the entire series of VanDread twice through Encore.

I also watched my bootleg of a bootleg of a bootleg version of Knocking on Heaven's Door the other night on the laptop. I know... I don't support bootlegs either, but a friend gave it to me when I first started getting into anime years ago. It's still interesting to see the similarities between Vincent and Spike. Spike even says something about Vincent smelling like him. Now, the version I have has really crappy subtitles... can anyone fill me in what the significance of Vincent and Spike being so similar? When in the series was the movie supposed to have 'occured'? Just curious.

And does anyone find it funny that Spike talked about dating Electra and Vince was hitting on Faye, yet Spike and Faye never even hinted at getting together?

Has anyone else on here ever seen Berserk? If so, does anyone know where to find stuff about it online...? I know the very first episodes is kind of the 'last' but I want to find out about Caska and where the snake guy came from. People have told me some stuff about the story but I can't find anything at all online and it's been driving me crazy! Any help would be appreciated. =)

Still watchin' [11 Dec 2005|05:30am]

[ mood | hot ]

Yeah, I was taken way back today.

A friend of mine brought up some old anime he had recorded on VHS...yesh, we're total junkies. Anyhow...amongst these were two of my all time favorites, one of which was my very first anime I had witnessed some 7 or 8 years ago. *giggles*

I have no idea if anyone would remember it, so I tried finding the info and...well, I failed. I couldn't find pics or anything. ;_;

Soultrain 666 and Blueseed I know I seen Blueseed more than once, twice infact. But I always liked it. It was my first long term anime series I got intrested in, and Soultrain 666 was the first I seen. I can still remember watching it on my Grandfather's floor model TV.

Also, we watched a little of Neon Genisis Evangalon. In which a lot of the same voice actors from the Blueseed series partake. A lot of old voices I just really love and some good memories.

I should do this kind of thing more often.

Vandread Funness..^_^ [10 Dec 2005|03:07am]


Yes I'm not for sure, but I believe this is my first post here. ><

Sorry for the wait, it's just been busy...then boreing, then busy again.

Right, on to the actual post:

I've been re-watching Vandread...again. This makes over the 7th or 8th time I've seen it now, some episodes I've seen over 10 times. lol. I could watch it 4 times a day, where I am...but that's not revelant since I usually only see it once.

I gave most of my stuff to friends, including a little plushi I had of Jura. It kind of saddened me to see it go, but I guess it always will. *teardrop*.

That's my short post...I guess.

ok, I know it's been a while since I've posted anything in here... it's been a crazy couple of months. What with finding my long lost high school sweetheart, getting a job, moving in with him, quitting said job... I haven't had a lot of time. ;p Anyway, now that I'm getting a little extra income after paying off all my debts, I want to do what I said I'd do a year ago... create an anime library. So far I have Berserk (very good old school material!!!) and the Evangelion movie... Cowboy Bebop (of course) is the next on on the list, but I need some suggestions. I know I'm definetely buying everything Studio Ghibli and Cowboy Bebop, but what do you all suggest? I want to get VanDread as well, but I never see it anywhere. Thanks guys! ^_^

studio ghibli... [10 Jul 2005|09:33pm]

[ mood | curious ]

hey, has anyone seen the new film released by Studio Ghibli? I can't remember what it is, but I wanted to know if any of you had seen it. I saw Kiki's Delivery Service a little while ago on tv (the Disney version) and I actually liked it a lot. I had only gotten negative feedback on it before. Any Studio Ghibli favorites? I want to see more of them, but I don't know which ones I should watch first. Anyway, hope all is going well!

I figured the comm hadn't seen any action in a while, so here's a little sketch I did of some anime eyes and totoro. Any tips on any web sites to help someone who is trying to learn to draw anime? What kinds of pens and stuff are good to use? Anyway, if any of you have any sketches or anime drawings you've done, post them on here! ^_^

Totoro!Collapse )

Ok, here's a pic I did in Adobe Illustrator. It's a self portrait of me. And... CRITIQUE! I'm going to try and create some anime characters based on my split personalities too, but I wanted to get some feedback on just a basic pic right now. ^_^

I thought this was all too appropriate for this community...

Looking on various different websites, we can see that 'dorks', as the 'popular' crowd like to call them, are stereotyped as displaying certain aspects of behaviour. These include, but are not limited to:

- RP Gaming
- Watching anime
- Reading manga
- Cosplaying
- Spending 'too much' time on their computers
- Knowing far too much about their computers
- Referring to themselves by name
- Throwing foreign words randomly into English sentences
- Fantasising over drawn\animated characters
- Writing\Drawing fanworks for anime and games
- Naming their computer
- Creating their own anime/manga series.
- Naming your pet after an animated character
- Making icons and banners for 'fun'

If you are a 'dork', and damn well proud of it, then this is the right community for you! ~_^

ok, I'm in the process of creating this community... I wanted a community that could combine all the 'geeky' things like anime, gaming, rpging, manga, fanart, computer animation, and a place to post art and LJ icons. Maybe even add a little sci-fi in there too. ^_^ I just got tired of other anime and art communities that couldn't think 'outside the box' and reamed anyone for not following all the rules. And I know there's a lot of people out there who are members of deviantart... so I thought this would be a good place to post in a small community and get some positive feedback. Anyway, any help in creating this community/getting members would be greatly appreciated! My LJ is bad_wolf so if you would like to help create this community or have any ideas for it, leave comments over there, or join and reply to the post on here! ~_^
