Updates, Current Projects and Forgotten Manga Artists?

As always, if you’re new to my blog, read my “About” section first to know what you’re getting yourself into. Link here: https://araka13.wordpress.com/about Thanks.

Hey guys, Araka here… wait, wrong medium… scratch that.  Hey guys! I know I haven’t posted anything in ages, but if you read my “About” section you should have been aware that this might happen 🙂 First let me say that: I missed just starting to type and write down my thoughts. But I have been super busy over the past few months. I’ll get into more detail about that later, but first let me talk about something else.

Kaori Yuki, Count Cain, Mary Weather Hargreaves, Cain Hargreaves

I’m sure most of Manga Fans out there have heard about an Artist called Kaori Yuki. She is famous for ‘Earl Cain’ (Hakushaku Kain Shirīzu) and ‘Blood Hound’ (Yorugata Aijin Senmonten – Buraddohaundo Derakkusu). For me personal ‘Angel Sanctuary’ (Tenshi Kinryōku) is the most precious though. I loved everything about it when I first read it and even to this day I consider it my all-time favourite Manga. Admittedly I hated the Anime because it skipped so many things and simply stopped when it started to get interesting.

Kaori Yuki, Angel Sanctuary, Setsuna Mudou

Sadly a lot of great Manga never get the Anime they deserve. Of course I understand that Anime production is a very time-consuming and costly process, but I really wish some Manga would get the attention they deserve. – Same with “normal” books, hu? – What’s some of your favourite Manga that you would love to see get made into Anime? Also, I would pay pretty much any price for some Figures from Angel Sanctuary xD Did I mention that a have complete collection of the Manga? Sadly only in German so far, but I plan on getting an English version as well. (since I finally found a place that has them) You might ask yourself why I need two copies of a single Manga, but honestly, why not? I’m a collector, what can I say?

Zombie Loan, Chika Akatsuki and Shito Tachibana

Let me know what some of your favourite Manga Authors are or what you would love to see made into an Anime – or remade for that matter – or even just finished … (Zombie Loan!!)

Now, for my updates and current projects. Well, I think the most time consuming thing at the moment is my studies. I’m in the last semester of my Bachelor and plan on finishing in November. As you can imagine it’s not the easier thing in the world, so it demands a lot of my attention. Especially since I’m also working on a Research Project. But of course this on its own wouldn’t be too bad… so, let’s spice it up! I’m also moving house! I’m moving to a farm / orchard that’s about 3 hours away from my current house and of course we have a tonne of things that needs to go up there. So basically every 2 weeks I have to travel up there and help out with construction and normal moving stuff. Well, at least until the end of next month. By then everything should be more or less in order. Why am I telling you all this? Honestly, just because I felt like it. I told you before I will write about random stuff ^^ But studies and moving still isn’t that bad, so I decided to also start a YouTube channel.

Well, I started it a while ago but only recently made the decision to get serious about it. Hm? You want to know what it’s about? Well, that’s simple: GAMES! I’m a Gamer, always have been and probably always will be. I play everything from RPG to FPS. So why not start a YouTube channel about it and potentially make some people happy? That has always been something I wanted to do, just make people smile. And if I can achieve that by doing something I love then all the better ^^ I will put a link to my channel and my other pages in my “About” section, so please go check them out.

I think that’s pretty much all for now. Thanks for reading and get working on those comments, likes and shares 🙂

Overload Convention 2014

As always, if you’re new to my blog, read my “About” section first to know what you’re getting yourself into. Link here: https://araka13.wordpress.com/about Thanks.

Overload 2014… what a fun experience. How can I best sum it up? “I came, I saw and I was pleasently surprised.” Yes, I guess that would sum it up correctly. When ever people hear about convention there usually are only three possible reactions:

  1. OMG! I neeeeeedz to be there! When? Where? What should I wear??
  2. Eh, it’s just going to be overcrowded and overpriced.
  3. I don’t care for those events. (Shame on you…)

To be honest, at first, I wasn’t too sure about it either, but as mentioned earlier I was pleasently surprised. The people were all very friendly and none of the cosplayers got upset when they were asked by the 30th person if they can take their picture. The prices were reasonable and the salespeople weren’t too pushy.
