I really like cute manga! :3

Friday, April 30th, 2010

These are my fave manga.
Kitchen Princess, Ranma 1/2, Sailor Moon, Magic Knight Rayearth, Card Captor Sakura, Ah Megami-sama!, Cyber Idol Mink, I like Alita from Battle Angel but not the other art as much. I also like Tokyo Mew Mew’s art, and also Bleach’s character art, Naruto’s art a bit too (love the more minor characters!). I like Rumiko Takahashi’s art style, and CLAMP’s diff styles. Ouran High School Host Club is good and also I like Omukae Desu, and The World God Only Knows. It is so incisive! Otamega!!!! LOL. Oh yeah I love Strawberry Marshmallow and I kind of like ‘Girl Got Game’ aka Power! (I think that’s it’s name). I think the artist who is the best to my eyes is Slam Dunk and Vagabond’s artist, Inoue Takehiko. He is brilliant. I also liked the way the author of ‘What’s Michael?‘ could capture face and eye shapes. But I don’t remember that person’s name…
The truth is, most manga is too dull with good drawings but lousy character direction or design. It’s all looks and no substance these days.
The most interesting manga I have read lately is XXXHolic (although the art style is not my fave). Tsubasa I don’t even care for much, except to squeal when I recognise a CLAMP character cameo. But I am interested in folktales, belief and superstition. The existence of youkai is an interesting topic. I recently looked at a book on youkai. I think every race have their own explanations for things like sounds and night and so on. In my opinion, there are three main categories of youkai, or supernatural creatures/things. The first is to explain things we cannot (or could not in the past) explain by natural means (i.e. a stained ceiling in your house). The second is for amusement (i.e. fairytales and ghost stories) or to frighten/caution children. The third is because people look to interact with the supernatural and so they devise little rituals and beliefs for themselves to try to control the uncontrollable (i.e. knocking on wood, or crossing yourself, even getting a horoscope reading to try to see your future). These beliefs quickly become traditional and culturally entertwined, so that it is hard to change them or get rid of them. I really enjoy thinking about these ideas.
Religion and magic are actually both the result of the human need for belief in something outside of the race of mortals. We need to believe in something else, something mysterious.
Oh yeah. I also like Dragon Ball and Dragon Ball Z. And GT, I guess.

I saw an ad on TV and wanted to go to this website and get a cute pet.

But I didn’t really get around to it yet. So then I saw this girl’s blog where she mentioned it and I decided to start today!
I added her to my blogroll as ‘plays games?’. I hope to join today, right now!
Wish me luck!
Two hours later ish…
Ok I joined. I have this link:

Oh this cat is so cute! I read the book that came out recently. It is just so amusing and this cat is much like my cat. This cat has Youtube videos too. These images are copyright to Simon Tofield, 2010.

Email: sanriotown.com, purinmail.com, hotmail.com, and google.com also has mail.

Manga: mangafox.com and onemanga.com

Games: I like to play Wonderland Online at the moment. I miss playing Angels Online, and I also played Nostale but I wasn’t good at that one. The truth is, I prefer cuter games like the ones I mentioned.
I have also played MU online, and it was fun.
These are all free to play and download etc.
I also like to play at www.neopets.com.
Facebook and Bebo have some game applications which are fun too.

For images and wallpapers etc, I like Deviantart.com and sanrio.com.
For cute pets, www.ratemykitten.com and www.ratemypuppy.com I used to go to.

Blogs: Livejournal.com, blogger.com (with google mail) and of course sanriotown.com!

Other websites I like to use are dictionary.com and about.com to get information.

These all may seem like obvious websites but to some who don’t know them, it could be useful. I hope this helps somebody out there!

I used to go to fontalicious.com to get cute fonts but I haven’t been there so I don’t know if they are still extant.

For anime stuff, www.animewebturnpike.com (or maybe .net) used to be good. Streaming anime, just search on google, I guess.

I went to the zoo and while I was there I took some photos of the sealions. They are so amusing! I hope they show up here.

I wish there were a Sanrio store in my country

I really like all the workings of Sanriotown but I wish that the websites were easy to read instead of a lot being in Japanese for the minor obscure characters (like Nyokki and Penne).
Otherwise, I love all the cute images and products you can get from the websites.

I think my favourite character ever is Pom Pom Purin and then I think Poccacho. I also like Charmmy Kitty and Pandapple.

I edited both of these images. The Charmmy one I got from a random search and then I added the pink background. The Purin one I got as a nurie colouring page from Sanrio and I coloured it.
