What I'm Watchig: Anime

What I'm Watchig: American Cartoons

Now some of you might have noticed that I really like Anime and have watched my fair share of anime series (and still do!) but never hear I me talk too much 
about American cartoons.
Truthfully, when I was a kid I'd watch cartoons like spongebob,rugrats,doug,powerpuff girls,etc.. all the time.
As I've gotten older however (and lost cable) I haven't really watched cartoons and pretty much lost interest in that kind of media.
Though lately there are a few that have peaked my interest that I've managed to catch.
Find out what they are after the jump!

Maintenance...(Report Problems Here) Post

Well Hello Everyone!

As you can see, it's the Christmas Season!
So I redecorated my blog accordingly.
But while doing so I realized that the button for the Articles on the Navigation bar
wasn't working properly for some odd reason and it would bring me to the page saying nothing found
(or something) .
In order to fix it I had to re-tag (or add tags to) all my "articles" with "thoughts'.
Not sure why but at least now if you all ever want to read any of my past articles and don't want to go through pages of other stuff to get there, you can.

Also if you find anything that doesn't seems right or outta wack (?) just let me know in the comments section of this post...and if you can get a screen shot of the problem, it would help me better understand the problem.

Anyway that's it for now,
Hope to see you all real soon!

*edit* Just updated the Archives page in case you're interested...

Star Wars: The Force Unleashed 2 Review

Hello Everyone and
Welcome to my Star Wars: The Force Unleashed 2 Review.

Star Wars: The Force Unleashed 2?
Star Wars: The Force Unleashed 2 is the sequel to the first Force Unleashed game that put you in the shoes of Darth Vader's Secret Apprentice: Starkiller.
But there's a twist this time around.
If you saw the ending to the last one, then you know you shouldn't even be playin' as Starkiller.
Though it would seem that Darth Vader thought ahead of time and decided to clone Starkiller and make an army of super powerful Sith. You're a clone that rebels against Darth Vader and goes on a quest to reunite with the love of his life (or previous life): Juno Eclipse.
I'm serious...that's what really drives the story,but I'll get to that in a sec.

Now that I played it after renting it (like I did the first one) I think I can still properly review it since I've already beat it.
(Rented it Thursday night and played it a little,played it Friday night, and then, beat it Saturday morning after an hour of playing)

Click the Read More Button to Read the rest of Review and see how much Force you can Unleash this time around.

The Anti-Virus Fiasco

Yesterday when I went on to my computer and my anti-virus wanted to know if I wanted to go from 2009 to 2011. Of course I said yes.
So I download it and installed it.
When you install a new version of a program the old version is removed.
Well it removed my old version alright, but the new version never installed.
Because of this, I was left utterly defenseless. With no anti-virus I was left venerable to attack.
I tried to install it about 4 or 5 times to no avail.
That's when I called my Uncle (the computer wiz) and told him about my situation. 
I did a system restore, thinking that would solve the problem but it did not. 
So he gave me a drive with the original anti-virus program to install into the computer.
Thankfully that worked.
I can now continue on with my life. ;P

Just glad that fiasco is over...just hope I don't get another anytime soon. ^^;

*EDIT: It would appear I'm not the only one who's had AVG11 problems
Which my Uncle just brought to my attention.

What's Hiding in the Jungle?

While out in the jungle (urban jungle), I went to my local Target to get some groceries. I stopped by the toy aisle since it's on the way to the food aisles (now that they moved it all to the back of the store instead of the front where it originally was). Now if my blog's header (banner) isn't a dead giveaway, GI-JOE has recently been something of interest to me. I haven't been really into it since the movie (Rise of Cobra) came out last summer, but now that Hasbro has begun releasing the followup toy line called: The Pursuit of Cobra, with there highly articulate, detailed, realistic and futuristic, action figures and vehicles.
As for the rest of my story, it goes something like this:
Arriving at the toy aisle, I see the rack is full of the "Tornado Kick" Snake Eye. : (
But behind them are the new Dusty,Destro, Recondo, Zartan, and the....Jungle Viper! : )
Now the Jungle Viper is quite rare (ish) because is highly sought after because it's an Army Builder and it's a short packed figure (unlike"Tornado Kick" Snake Eye).
 Excited to see him out in the jungle, I immediately snatched him up.

Now you know the story behind how I got him...and knowing is only half the battle!
Tune in next time when we go in depth to find out why this action figure is so cool and highly sought after.

Girls and Gaming

When you think of a video gamer, what gender comes to mind first?
If you said "Male", then you're in the majority, since Females don't have as much of a presence in the video game market as guys.
Especially with all the Violence, Sex appeal, and all the other stuff that mainly interest guys.
Recently, I have been beginning to notice first hand that there are gamers that are girls. Also they could probably kick your butt (like they did mine ^^;) I'll admit, it's pretty cool to see another medium where both genders can enjoy and interact with each other without having to compromise.
The reason I say "recently" is because I just hooked up my XBOX 360 to XBOX LIVE after about 5 years (or so).
Playing online (with Mic and HeadSet) definitely proved to be an interesting and quite enjoyable experience.
If you're a first timer to online video gaming (specifically the XBOX LIVE), here's some mistakes you don't want to make (like I did) when playing with the opposite sex.

Fanart of my Holiday Girls.


You most likely heard about my Holiday Girls Series which are girl version of holidays.
I'm glad to see people enjoy them.
One of the coolest things is that a few people have actually drawn fanart of my characters.
Someone drawing fanart of your characters is a really cool. ^_^
Super Bowl Sunday

This was given to me in an art trade by Moonflute on Flickr. Adding the helmet and the the action pose really made this cool.
4th of July (2010 Outfit)
This was drawn by
Agito Anonymous  who did this to help me get a better perspective on my proportions since lately since I have been a little off. But practice makes perfect.: ) I really like the pose and flowing hair, also the cane (?) looks good with her.

So...if you have any fanart my Holiday Girls, be sure to post 'em here in the comments.
I'd love to see them.

Back from the Doctor's Office

Today I went to the Eye Doctor to have my eyes examined.
Back when I was ten, I used to wear glasses but 5 years ago I stopped because they got too small and I was sick of almost every little kid and their parents thinking I was harry potter since I never really liked harry potter and having to explain to them that I was not got pretty old after a while.
Anyway, more about what happened today.
I had a really good doctor who told me that my eyes are healthy (yay!) and that Nintendo wasn't (entirely) the reason I had to start wearing glasses when I was ten, but it was family genetics. Funny since my Mom can a mile away while I can barely see far away. My Mom believed I had to start wearing glasses back then because my friends and I all played the N64 and we all had to get glasses after that. The doctor said that probably accelerated the Nearsightedness in my eyes at younger age though.
So I got my eyes checked out and I'll be getting my glasses in a week.
The best part, my insurance covered it all. Now that's what I call an early birthday present...since my birthday's tomorrow. So happy right now. :D

All Good Things Must Come to an End

Ok, maybe not all good things, but one in particular that ended on Thursday.
The popular series that's lasted a decade with it's manga and two anime series: Fullmetal Alchemist

For those who have never seen or heard of it, here's a quote from Wikipedia:
The world of Fullmetal Alchemist is styled after the European Industrial Revolution. Set in a fictional universe in which alchemy is one of the most advanced scientific techniques known to man, the story follows the brothers Edward and Alphonse Elric, who want to restore their bodies after a disastrous failed attempt to bring their mother back to life through alchemy.
I never read the manga myself, but I did watch both anime series.
When I first started the first series when I was getting into anime, I was amazed by the story,characters, and the many emotional moments that would pull on your heart strings. It was different than the more mainstream series like Dragon Ball Z and Naruto. It was what I would call mature. No not like adult or anything like that.

The reason there are two anime series is because the first one changes the story midway through while a the second one (called: Brotherhood) stays with the original story all the way till the very end.
Also the voice acting superb in both English and Japanese versions (of course I watched those subtitled).

It was a great series (one of my top favorites) and it's a shame to see it end but it's also nice to finally get some closure.

Personally I would recommend that you view the first anime series because the second series (Brotherhood) sped through earlier storylines and the emotional impact they had in the first are nearly lost in Brotherhood. Also it should be noted that I wouldn't recommend it be viewed by those under the age of 15/16 years old because there is blood and violence,swearing, and mature themes, but almost no sexual content whatsoever.

So if you would like to see the series yourself, check it out at:

Iron Man 2: My Thoughts

That's right! I finally saw Iron Man 2 in the theater this weekend.
Why I waited so long was because a friend of my Mom and I gave us two matinee tickets (passes that had to be used two weeks after the premiere) to a movie theater that was more awesome then words could describe.
It was a ways up there, but it was so worth it. It was much better then our local one we went to see G.I.-Joe last year. It wasn't crowed so we didn't have to sit with a bunch a little kids and noisy people. It was a great experience.
As for the movie itself, it was also awesome.

My Iron Man Hall of Armors

Tony Stark (aka Iron Man) as made many different armors over the years, but where does he put them all?
In his Hall of Armors of course!
Ever since the I got my Iron Man Minimates from the first movie, I began transforming what was once a C3 (kinda like Lego) Bat Cave into Iron Man's Hall of Armors.
So yeah, it was two years in the making and I pretty much finished now.
But like the Iron Man armors, I'll probably keep upgrading it from time to time.
Especially when I get more Iron Man Minimates.
 That's how it looked recently before I finished it.
Now see It finished after the jump.

My Trip to Borders

This weekend I went to my local Borders book store for the first time.

When I first walked in it wasn't loud and noisy like my local Barnes and Noble, which is a plus in my book.
Then I went over to their Manga (Japanese Comics) section and I was blown away and it totally blew Barnes and Noble's Manga section away too!
They had so much to choose from and it was nicely displayed. They even had stuff I hadn't seen before like holographic note books with popular anime characters on 'em, and Pencil bags and sharpeners, and whole lotta other cool stuff.  I was almost in ecstasy trying to absorb all the awesomeness.
What's this got to do with Iron Man?
The whole reason I went there in the first place. That and a 40% off coupon.

So today I will be reviewing the Exclusive Borders two pack that comes with Mark IV Iron Man and Battle Damage Whiplash.

Iron Man Anime

That's right, Iron Man's getting his own Anime Series that's going to come out this fall.

I can't wait till it comes out. I hope it streams online at CrunchyRoll or something along those lines.
It looks like it could be interesting. So far I'm really liking the artistic style and coloring it has.
...And everything else of course.
Also the Villain looks cool but I can't figure out who he is.
Is he from the comics or a whole new character?
Guess we'll just have to wait and find out.

I'm Going Back to Church

The renovation of the church is finally finished and after a year or two we're out of the gym.
It's very nice looking and there is a little more room to sit (though we had to stand) but the basic layout of the church is basically the same as before except the took out some wall and expanded it.
They also took out all the carpet and replaced it with tile.
All and all it's good to finally be back in church instead of a gym.
Now if  only they could figure out how to solve the parking lot problem.

Above is a picture of the alter I took with my cell.
Everyone was excited and they were taking pictures too.

Iron Man 2 Trailer 2

Hi there,
Today the second Iron Man 2 trailer premiered and it shows a lot of new footage.
From what I see, It's gonna be Totally Awesome! :D
I can't wait for this movie to come out because it looks like it's gonna be epic.
I liked the first one quite a bit even though their wasn't as much action till the end of the movie since it was an origin movie, so I let it slide.
This one look like it'll be action packed!

Watch it for yourself and tell me what'cha think.

Bootleg Manga!?

It would seem that Nick Simmons, who is Gene Simmons' (lead singer of KISS) son, made a comic called Incarnate which it's art looks a lot like the highly popular manga series by Tite Kubo: Bleach
It was brought to the world's attention by user "Tetsujiin" from the
GameFaq Boards a few days ago and now news of this has spread like wildfire across the net.
Fans of the Bleach series spent much time trying to let Tite Kubo know of this startling news.
He responded to the news with two Tweets:
"Last night until this morning, I got a ton of "an American comic is copying Bleach!" messages from overseas fans! Looking at the site I don't speak English, but I saw something like "Gene Simmons' son Nick Simmons who draws manga-style comics."

Honestly, more than whether they remble each other or not, I wonder that Gene Simmons' son is a mangaka..."

As for my thoughts on the matter, you can see in the above picture there's difinitely a resemblance. I can understand being inspired by an artist and how your art can be influenced by that artist, because as an artist myself this happens to me too. But seeing that the panels,characters,and even the dialog are nearly identical, there is difinitely something fishy. I wasn't totally convinced that Nick Simmoms plagiarized Bleach since I thought was influenced by Tie Kudo's style until I saw a post on Live Journal that has a whole lot of comparison pictures between the two and how similar they look.
It's a real shame, I think the story had a lot of potential and could've been a real hit.

What a rip-off!

What I did on Valentine's Day Weekend

Surprisingly it would seem I forgot to tell you all about it.

Well on the 13th, I worked with my Mom to do a Valentine's Day display in front of a hair salon by our local Publix shopping center in order to promote my Mom's Online Business: where she sells Jewelry,Hair Accessories,Purses,Clothing, Lace Shirts (which could be good for those of you who cosplay or like steam punk,maybe even gothic lolita)and other stuff. The website is still a work in progress, but I'd love if you would check it out. ^^

Sadly, I was unable to get any pictures of myself in my "Romantic Outfit" that my Mom had me wear to showcase some of her clothing which consisted of a black jacket with a custom made crown & wings logo,a white ruffled cotton tuxedo shirt,black leather pants, and shoes (nothing special about them). I looked pretty good to say so myself.

Maybe when I wear it again I'll take (or have taken) some pictures and I'll show you all.
Talk to ya later. ; )

Aftermath of my Little Cousin's Birthday Bash

Sadly I can't tell you how the whole party went last night (though I heard it was good) since we (my mom and I) got there a little late because my mom lost her keys so we ended up searching for them everywhere for like 40 minutes.

You wouldn't believe where found them.
In my cousin's gift bag...-_-'
But thankfully we made it just in time for cake!:D
I got to see my family,see some of my friends I hadn't seen in a while,and meet some nice people.

After my older cousin got my uncle off the computer, My mom and I read my last blog post to Katie and to a few of her friends that stood by. It was really something from the heart and I think she really appreciated it.
Also, I think she liked that I gave her some publicity.
Don't worry, we gave her nice gifts too. : )
So all-in-all, I think I was a good night and I think she had a "Sweet" 16th Birthday.
Sniff, they grow up so fast...

My Little Cousin's Finally Growing Up

Well today's my little cousin's Sweet 16th Birthday and
Tonight will be a teenager's delight
She'll have a DJ,Disco,and Lights
There'll be singing and dancing all through night
Even Hannah Montana would be jealous
A party fit for a Queen, although she's only sixteen
She's rockin' n' rollin' and doin' her thing
She's singin' and priasin' the Lord at Flamingo Road Church or at her  Youtube Page
In the upcomming year American Idol awaits
But to leave Flamingo Road she'll dread what it takes!
Either way She'll do whatever God puts on her heart and she'll follow it as she has from the start
So now I'll end this poem with something that doesn't rhyme... Happy Birthday Katie!

Disclaimer: This post was not endoresed by Flamingo Road Church or by my little cousin, Katie.

Toy Fair 2010: GI-JOE

With Valentine's Day and all, I nearly forgot about ToyFair which is a huge convention where toy companies show off their latest offerings to various distributors.
One of the things that I was interested in hearing about was Hasbro's Military Action Figure Line called: GI-JOE.
My thoughts about this news and about certian changes (big and small) have been made since JoeCon (a GI-JOE Convention) after the jump.

Happy Valentine's Day!

Hi Everyone,

This my Valentine's Day Girl who is part of my Holiday Girls Series  that I started 2 years ago.

I made some subtle changes since I last drew her last year (left) and
if you noticed I tried to draw "heart hands" which is when a character forms a heart shape with her hands.

Hope you all like it.

Happy Valentine's Day Everyone! ^3^

2D Hottie Spot Light: Amu Hinamori

Amu's the popular girl at school for her "cool and spicy" attitude but what the others don't see is that she's really quite shy and introverted. She wishes she could just be herself without worrying what others think. The next morning to her surprise, she finds three colorful eggs that hatch into three Guardian Characters: Ran, Miki, and Su.
