To those of you aware of the rules of the internet; yes, this is a journal about gender-bending!
as most of you prolly know, I'm pretty gender-bent myself
and a huge amount of the manga and comics I read are gender-bending related.
but recently one manga (and it's anime too) have been too totally awesome not to talk about! its an action/school romance type affair called 'Kampfer' and heres how I rank my fave's in the genre:
3rd place: Cheeky Angel (tenshi no konomaiki)
character art is horrific, its all really chessy, but still fun
2nd place: Ranma 1/2
still really cool even though its oooolllld (crap the manga is as old as me!
) but it is pretty much the original. problem though is it was the same few storylines repeated over and over it seemed
1st Place: Kampfer
really awesome art, really awesome concept, really awesome characters and would have won even if it didnt have cool talking plushies with their guts hanging out.
OH MY GOD! (I hear you yell if you are into this kind of thing) HOW COULD YOU PUT RANMA 2ND!
well, kampfer is that awesome.
expect lots (and lots) of Natsuru fanart in the future
anyhoo, now I've got my 'freaky fangirl' stuff clear I just thought I should mention in my journal someplace I've been working on a NaNoWriMo entry this year (to write a 50,000 word novel during november) and I'm currently a little over double my target wordcount for this part of the month, which is pretty cool
as for the story, the basic deal is there are these 26 'super' warriors and when there is only one left standing they will be given the power to reshape the universe as they see fit.
it's going pretty well and I'm really happy with how the story itself is coming, if you want to follow my progress you can check out new chapters and illustrations on my crappy art blog
and if you are writing yourself this month why not add me as a writing buddy! [link]
we shall race to 50k!
