Conversations for what to do....
Xander and the group were all around the monitor, looking at the ghastly face. Well guys, I have one idea. If we are fast enough, would could freeze the creature. Then, build a bacta tank around him, solidify it with the new permaplastic that Emtrey created. Fill it with bactagoo and enough nightynight poison to knockout all of China. Then, we could get the samples needed, right?

As far as the ship, I need to get Delta here. He would love it, and probably be best able to determine the size of the ship.

Really random, but....
Okay, first post ever here! So, I was wondering what kinds of anime/manga the otaku here liked. Are there any specific genres people don't like? (I know hentai is the obvious one) Are there any titles you guys would reccomend to the other people here?

Anyway, random post is over, so thanks for bothering to read this random unimportant thingy.

(Feel free to take this down if it's aginst the rules or whatever.)

New season
This community seems to have been in stale waters for almost a year now!!

Anyone been following the new season? I find it interesting that "Christianity" seems to be getting a little bit of coverage in the new shows, in particular To Aru Majutsu no Index, and Michiko to Hatchin. I enjoy following those series (for now) - but I am more than a little disturbed by how so skewed and untrue many things are portrayed...... like the "nun" in To Aru Majutsu no Index and the "priest family" in Michiko to Hatchin (man, that was quite disturbing)... Thoughts, anyone?

Okay, I'm rather new to lj, been on for about a year and have posted twice to communities. Just recently, I realized that there maybe other geeks out in the world that talk about anime as much as I.  My friends tend to post that i'm addicted or a complete geek and rarely comment on my latest conquest of anime. 

I once said that I do not view anime as a hobby but rather a life style, oddly enough they thought i was on crack.  I personally see that each series and genre has something deeper to be learned and grasped then just watching for entertainment value. 

My latest conquests were Prince of Tennis, Death Note, Darker than Black, Code Geass, Gillgamesh and I'm watching Bleach right now.
 I have an interest in finding other friends who love anime as much as i do.

Ideas, anyone?
I'm going to be moderating a panel at the upcoming Diversicon sf convention, and would welcome any ideas you folks might have. The panel is titled,

"Religion in Anime and Manga (or, Usagi gets married in the
Church of the Ascended Rabbit??) How is religion and spirituality portrayed in anime and manga? Why the mystique around Christianity? A look at Trinity Blood, Inuyasha, Bleach, Gundam Wing, Innocent Bird, Evangelion, and others."

I'm looking for relevant issues, discussion topics and questions. Ideas, anyone?

Hey everyone,

It was brought to my attention that someone had posted pornographic pictures in one of the community posts. I deleted the entire post. I'm sorry I didn't catch it sooner. Thanks so much for keeping an eye out on the community. Although it's not entirely active, I enjoy the posts you all make, and the insights you all have. I have disabled comments from non-members, so hopefully this will deter any further negative activity. Thanks everyone!

I think I'm supposed to introduce myself...
At least that's forum etiquet. I've never really done an LJ community. I was out looking for a group of Christians, as my usual web wanderings are not exactly of that influence when I came across you guys. It's always nice to come across another group of anime-lovers like myself, much less ones that share my beliefs! I guess I have to tell you a lil about myself, then. ^_^ I'm a 23 year old college student, working on my ordination in the United Methodist church. I'm engaged. I enjoy drawing, reading, I'm a rabid videogame player, and I've just started learning the guitar. I'm not exactly sure what I'm going to do with the abbility to play a guitar, but obviously I have the occasional fantasy of being a world famous rock artist.
My favorite Anime is Full Metal Panic, and I don't often read Manga (despite working in a bookstore), but I just picked up the single volume version of "The Train Man." It was great! Anyway, uh, I look forward to talking to some of you soon.

Jesus Film Goes Anime
from: http://www.animenewsservice.com/

"Originally distributed in 1979 by Warner Brothers in theaters nationwide, the two-hour "JESUS" film is not only the most widely-distributed, but also the most translated film in history---with more than 900 separate language translations and more than 6 billion exposures globally, topping Oscar greats Gone with the Wind, The Sound of Music, The Lion King, Titanic, and The Wizard of Oz. Now plans are on the table to adapt the story to anime. The JESUS Film's Chief of Staff Greg Gregiore says, "A number of different things that we're doing have to do with innovation, or with taking the assets of the JESUS Film that we have and repurposing those assets." "We're taking the audio tracks that we have translated and re-recorded over these past 26 years and putting new visuals to that. And, we're working on right now an Anime version of the JESUS Film." It'll be a bit different than the current film, says Gregiore. "We will reorder the events and make more of a story and a dramatic film out of it. But, we're still using God's word as recorded in the book of Luke, we're using the same dialogue loops that were used in the original JESUS Film." While the completion of the project is more than two years away, Gregoire says, "That visual with a new musical score, new sound effects and use of the same dialogue, so in effect when we complete the film we will be able to simultaneously release it in over 900 languages." Because it's already translated. Two short segments are going to be field tested soon. Pray that God will allow the new project to be completed quickly and on budget. www.jesusfilm.org"

Before anything else, it seems that this comm is near death in the sense that no one bothers to watch what is happening. Some creep has posted really gross pics in the previous thread and I'd like to call the mod's attention.

On to the topic of the day: It seems that there would be better things ahead of me. One, is that I had been (at last) training as an assistant animator. Finally, I can actually get my obsession, which is often views as useless, into good use.

The other is that, the second take on my costume that I talked about in a previous thread. Well, this time, I had a weapon made--even if the character originally has no weapon, it was patterned after his mech. And guess what; I actually made it to the finals ^^; this was the farthest I have gone in the whole period of my cosplaying.

Some pics:

Range Murata's Form Code

Hm, there doesn't seem to be a lot of activity here =_=

In case some of you are interested, I've just received my order of Range Murata's Form Code artbook recently. Just wanna say that it is simply awesome, oozing with style and production value!! Seeing it delivered to my doorstep totally made my day (and month). Talk about fanboy-ism, heh...

I absolutely adore many of Range Murata's drawings (the character designer for Last Exile, Blue Submarine No.6), and I'm sure I'm not the only one? Seeing some of his work makes me want to give up drawing, haha... =_=

More pictures at my livejournal post!

I was never much for reading comic books to be totally truthful, but be it a Saturday morning cartoon, a movie or a docmuntery... I absolutely can't get enough of Superheros. You ask me about one in partucular and I could probally tell you more than you wanted to know about them. It seems with the release of several big movies over the last few years that superheroes are coming back into style. This kind of made me stop and think about what actually makes a superhero and why is the world so obcessed with them? My friend Ian would probally tell you that I like superheroes because they best people up with wicked awsome powers and look cool doing it. And while this may be partially true, is that why people like superheroes so much? I would hope not! The ability to beat up others as a stand alone trait makes one nothing more than a bully, much less a hero. So I ask you what DOES make a hero? Let's take a look at three of my personal favorites and see if we can't figgure it out.

Peter Parker was you typical geeky 15 year old until he was bitten by a Radioactive spider on a Sophmore field trip. After the incident he found he had absorbed the powers of the Spider and became the Incredible Spider-Man. The first thing Peter tried to do was use his powers to get money, but in thinking only of hisself he stood by as a robber ran from the police. Only to find out that that very same robber later killed his Uncle Ben while making his get away.... Uncle Ben's words rang in the back of his head from that day forth "With Great Power Comes Great Responsibility" from that day forth, Spider-man could be found swinging across the skyline of New York fighting crime.Now just because he was Spider-man, it didn't mean he could just quit his life outside of the mask, so Peter juggled highschool life and a crime fighter's life at the cost of any freetime, social life, or sleep that he may have otherwise had.
Sacrificing of yourself for the good of others... does that make a hero?

Clark Kent found out at a young age that he was not the farmboy from Kansas that he had always thought he was. In fact, he was in actuality Kal-el, the last survivor of the planet Krytpon. Eventually he started developing powers beyond imagination. Eventually with the help of some glasses that still boggle the minds of fans today, Clark hid hisself away as a mild mannered reporter, not telling anyone that he was really Superman, lest harm come to those he loved as a result.
With powers as great as those of Kal-el he could have easliy taken over this entire world and lived as the most powerful king ever. He could have had these humans waiting on him hand and foot if he so wished, but rather than do that he hides away as a reporter, keeps his identy a secret so as NOT to attract the fame and respect he rightfully deserves, and even more than that, he actually devotes his life to saving people. Mankind is really nothing but ants to Superman, but whenever the people of Metropolis are in trouble all they need do is look do the sky and Superman will be there to save the day.
Humbling yourself, looking after those under you, those weaker than you, and those who can't take care of themselves... does that make a hero?

Charles Xavier founded a school that serves as a savehaven for mutants all over the world. A genetic mutation at birth has caused these people to be born with powers often beyond even their own control. Humans fear mutants, afraid that they will overpower them all, and as a result have grown hateful towards mutants, many going as far as disowning their own kids for being born a mutant. Knowing nothing but hatred from birth, many of these mutants grown hateful of humans, many going as far as wanting to wipe mankind off the face of the Earth for their cruel treatment of mutants. But Xavier teaches all at his school that one day Humans and Mutants can get along peacefully... his school is also home to the X-Men, a group of mutants who fight tirelessly to defend mankind against mutants that seek to destroy them... and what thanks do the X-Men usually get for this? They get booed and jeered, they get slandered and hated, and sometimes even beaten. And yet without fail, whenever mankind needs protection, the X-Men are there. Showing love, even when love is not returned... showing kindness to someone who doesn't deserve it... standing up for what's right, even if you are mistreated and hated for it... does that make a hero?

I think a hero is so not because they can swing from buliding to building, not because they are faster than a speeding bullet, not because they have cool claws or can fly, or even because they can manage to look good in tights. I think it's not strength of body that makes a hero, but strength of heart.

Heroes are around us everywhere, you don't need to pick up a comic book, a movie or a video game to find them. This world is full of Men and Women that possess a heart just as strong as any Superman out there. In fact, you might be someone's hero... someone might be looking up to you and you're not even aware. Someone might see something in you that ignites a small spark in them. Let's all strive to be hero material.

I suppose the two questions I'll leave you with in all this are...

1) Who is your Hero?

2) Why are they your Hero?

Until Next time True Believers!

Manga Summary
Hi. I'm sorry for posting so many posts on here, but I thought this would be a good place to share some of my story idea. ^_^ The story is called "Tasukatta". It's a story about what the world is like: knowing God and those who do not know God. I have many characters in the story. The story takes place in a small town. I chose a small town because that was the opposite of where I grew up during my childhood years. The main character is a young man who has had a rough life since from his birth. His mother has a mental illness and she is untreated for it. There were many issues concerning her during her late teens which is how her son came into this world. The young man as an infant was nearly drowned by his own mother in the bathtub, so he was taken from his mother to live with his grandparents. His grandmother knew of his mother's condition, but his grandfather could've cared less. His grandmother wanted her grandson to be raised right, so she would take him to church. However, being a child, he didn't like Sunday School. His behavior was inappropriate at times. He is under the influence of his mother, his mother does not believe in God or follow Jesus Christ herself. As a child, she was pressured to go to church. The reason why she is this way is because of her father. Her father was more of a spiritual man while her mother was a fundamentalist christian. (This happened to me growing up). This is just some of the story, please let me know what you think, good or bad. Arigatou.

Forgot some stuff ^^;;
I forgot to say in my introduction..I am a fundamentalist christian. I am proud to be saved (big thanks to my parents and family). :3 I will admit I've had my share of doubts on God and Jesus Christ, but I've always prayed for forgiveness. Right now, I'm going through some tough times and I'm in the 'I want answers now' stage with God. I have trouble with patience. I am also having trouble dealing with my Asperger's syndrome. I am not blaming God for giving it to me, but I've been taking medication for its other comobrid conditions that I have and I'm still learning on how to be independent and taking care of myself. I still live with my mother and it's hard on her to still have one of her children at home. I feel so frustrated. I turn to God for answers, it feels like he's ignoring me at times, but I know he's not. I am also reading the Bible for the first time in my life. I'm also in the works of making a manga (christian related, but more 'down-to-earth'). It's called "Tasukatta" which means "Helped" or 'Saved' in japanese.

Hajimemashite! ^_^
Hi. My name means "deep-person who is obsessed". I chose that name because in reality, that is what I am basically, a deep otaku into: anime, manga, and anything that's japanese (all except for the religion, I shall always be christian) ^_^ I have been into anime since I was at least in kindergarten back in the late 80's with the american versions of anime titles such as: Maple Town Monogatari, Maya the Bee, The Little Prince,Unico, Superbook, Flying House, there was an ABC special called "Kingdom Chums: Little David's Adventure". The animation is japanese. I love to read manga in japanese (I can only read furigana for right now, some kanji). I also enjoy japanese music. I listen to it just about everyday. XDDDD I also draw in the more 'anime' style, but I'm trying to develop my own style now. Over the years I've favored some manga-ka, they are:
Adachi Mitsuru
Takahashi Rumiko
Kusunoki Kei
Sonoda Kenichi
Mikimoto Haruhiko
Toriyama Akira

That's all I can think of right now. Douzo yoroshiku onegaishimasu! ^_^
