Yeah so, I missed posting an entry yesterday but in my defence I was at a StreetPass meet all day and didn’t get home until fairly late. Normal daily service should resume for the foreseeable future now! For today’s challenge I have to pick my favourite mech manga. Problem is I don’t actually have one…
Another question today as I have to pick my favourite fighter manga which is something I don’t really read. How do you even define fighter manga? Is it just any old shonen? I’m thinking you’d probably define it as shonen (I hope anyway), so I’ve based my choices on that.
I find it fairly amusing that on Halloween I’m writing about the best manga villain for my 30 day manga challenge. Because I read a lot of shojo manga and there aren’t really any characters you could define as ‘villains’, my picks for today were pretty hard to come up with. I think I’ve made the right choices in the end though.
Third day of the 30 day manga challenge and I’ve been left with a fairly tricky question. The challenge for today is to decide on my favourite male manga character ever. Why do I have to have so many tricky questions so many days in a row?!
A friend of mine, Mocorochi, is taking part in the 30 day anime challenge over at his blog. In light of this I figured I’d take the same challenge only in light of needing a few more manga articles up on here I figured I’d do a 30 day manga challenge and follow it up with a 30 day anime challenge afterwards!
We’ve all heard the news in the last 24 hours: Studio Ghibli is taking a brief break from producing anime in order to do a reshuffle of the company. This news has got many people speculating just what would happen if Studio Ghibli really did shut up shop.
Studio Ghibli was the introduction to anime for a lot of people. Admittedly, it wasn’t for me as I was introduced to anime through Pokémon, Digimon, and CardCaptors. Even though I didn’t get into anime because of Studio Ghibli I still remember the first time I saw one of their films. The first of their work I ever saw was Spirited Away, which I fell in love with very quickly. After seeing Spirited Away I made the effort to seek out every other Studio Ghibli film and found firm favourites in the likes of Howl’s Moving Castle, My Neighbour Totoro and The Wind Rises, which I reviewed for the site not long after getting to see it. I love Ghibli movies, what else can I say, but despite this I’m not personally too upset by the idea of them closing.
Yesterday I posted up a review of No Game, No Life and upon reading the review a close friend of mine asked why I gave it so low a score for its soundtrack. Overall this led us to discussing anime soundtracks and what makes them stand out to each of us. So, figuring this would make a decent topic to talk about I decided to write a short ramble on the subject.
