Conclusion of FMA?

August 30, 2008

Originally I wasn’t going to blog about the announcement of the second series of FMA since it’s old news but I was wondering how the next season of FMA is going to start. Is it going to be a series that explains the gap of time in between the end of the last season and before the […]

Chibi Links 26-August-2008

August 26, 2008

A sliver of hope from Anime Central? Why do women take so long to get ready? Japanese women take nearly two hours to get ready but seriously, I don’t think that I could do this… “Vehicle? You call that a vehicle?” But they are really cool! I don’t think I’d go for the Mickey Mouse […]

Voices of a Distant Star

August 24, 2008

“One thought can overcome time and distance, just one thought.” Also called Hoshi no Koe or Voices From A Star. Normally I have a watch an entire series before I blog about but luckily enough that Voices of a Distant Star is a thirty minute OVA. This OVA was the brainchild of Makoto Shinkai who is also responsible for creating other anime called […]

As usual there’s a reason for this post. 🙂 Today’s victim is GoComi. I actually had an entire ranting post about GoComi but let’s keep it short and sweet. The website for this publisher seems to somewhat lax, very lax in fact. I would almost say that it has a bored attitude and leaves a bad impression. Any company has to […]

Chibi Links 22-August-2008

August 22, 2008

If you’re familiar to the Irish blogosphere you might have heard of Red Links or Fluffy Links. I have created Chibi Links. Chibi is the word for small in Japanese, hence the name is basically “Small Links”. Short and sweet with a small comment attached and so I thought I would do Chibi Links every fortnight or so because I […]

Learning Japanese

August 21, 2008

A little while back I was going manga shopping with someone who wouldn’t have the greatest interest in manga or anime. This particular person (let’s call them G) still flicks through my blog and at times this person can be a valuable wealth of constructive criticism. When I was buying manga and G tagged along I was able to prattle on […]

Contact Lenses

August 20, 2008

I had to blog about these contact lenses as I would never have blogged about it without Debz twittering it. Anime contact lenses, I kid you not. I must admit though I don’t think I would be too happy seeing a person wearing these. Perhaps it’s the camera angle in the above photo but the eyes remind me […]

Above is the avatar I made from faceyourmanga.com. I really like it but I had to download the upgraded Adobe Flash Player a couple of times before I managed to kick it into gear. The possibilites were endless, although I managed to create a manga avatar without much bother. So what’s your manga face? 🙂

Adventure Reviewed

August 16, 2008

Phew! I certainly have a lot to blog about over such a short period of time. So I’m going to write this post in the order that I did the activities on that day and include lots of pictures! First of all let’s start with the manga I bought in Dublin. The first series I bought was […]


August 12, 2008

I will be on a brief hiatus until next week as I’m going to a concert in Dublin to see the English band Muse in Marley Park. At the moment I’m hoping that the Irish weather at the moment will drastically improve otherwise it’ll be swim city for me. Hopefully I can explore the vast array of […]
