Update 10/26/14

Hey guys! Welcome to yet another week. (I am first typing this as I cook dinner Wednesday night...let's see when I actually finish writing this update...) I have a lot of cool stuff planned for next month, but let's wrap this one up with a quick peek into my own world yet again.

As you guys know, I have a sick obsession with music. I am always looking for new music to inspire me. Lately I have been listening to two different playlists on my phone, computer, and iPad. I have been obsessed with them. They contain songs that either remind me of anime or are Japanese songs themselves.

That puts me at a total of 187 volumes of manga that I own. Whoa. That's a lot. I didn't realize I owned that much. That doesn't even add in my fanbook copies that I have from Naruto and Vampire Knight. Nor does it add in my graphic novels and copies of Shonen Jump that I own. OR my copies of Otaku USA which has copies of manga in it. Geez....I put a lot of money into this don't I?

My favorite series to read is probably at this point in time: Seraph of the End. It is a beautifully put together post-vampire apocalypse. My heart tightens with each new volume that comes out. It also gets me excited to know that it will become an anime next year.

What is your favorite manga series to read? Do you own a lot of manga? Do you own a little bit? What is your collection like? Let me know.

So here we are at the COTW point of the blog. That moved fast didn't it. So this week for my character of the week, I have selected a character who holds a special place in my heart. From the first moment I saw this character to the moment when the English voice actor said "How you doin?" in a blooper of the show.

This week for character of the week:

Winry Rockbell

from Fullmetal Alchemist and Fullmetal Alchemist Brotherhood

While you are briefly introduced to young Winry instantly in the anime, it isn't until Edward and Alphonse make a trip back home later on in the series that you meet Winry. She is the childhood friend and mechanic for the Elrics. She hand built Ed's arm and leg. She's a genius for being so young.

She is the daughter of two doctors and is being raised by her grandmother after her parents died during the Ishval Civil War.

In the original 2003 series and the movie that follows, Winry never gets to express her feelings to Edward and you are left feeling heartbroken when you see Winry's face as Ed leaves.

In the 2009 series and the manga, Winry and Ed struggle with their feelings for one another and finally in the end you are blessed with the awkward marriage proposal.

During the end credits you are shown that they wound up getting married after Ed returned to Resembool and they had two kids together, a little boy and a little girl.

Winry is a bad ass and she is not afraid to show her emotions. A hard thing for her to face is her parents death's. In the 2003 anime, this is shown by her hatred towards Roy Mustang who was the one who killed them against his will. However, in the 2009 anime and the manga, it was in fact Scar who killed her parents and he is willing to do whatever she wants so he can atone for her pain but not his sin.

I just wish there were more characters like Winry out there in anime.

Do you like Winry Rockbell? Would you rather see someone else for CotW? Let me know and maybe your character will be featured.

So this is the end. Farewell to those of you who don't read spoilers. For those who do, continue on and we shall discuss Bleach and Naruto.



Guys...I just want this fight to end already. I can't take this suspense anymore. Is Naruto going to die by Sasuke's hand? Or is the fight going to end on a draw? Plus have you seen the new images for Naruto The Last?  Is it a hint at the future? Are they both going to live?

I hate to be left waiting. This is why I don't do angst very well. I get too tense and invested. Gah.

What are your thoughts? I think Naruto will become Hokage, get married, and be a bad ass ninja. (After he gets promoted to fucking Jonin mind you).


Did anyone else's brain hurt after reading this chapter?

Mine did, so I don't even know what happened....

Maybe Ichigo will show up finally and the series will finally end the way it should....maybe.

Well that is it for this week. I hope you all liked it, I certainly had fun writing this one. I don't really know what to expect for the rest of the year, but it will certainly be a good one. Have a great Halloween. Happy Haunting everyone.

See you next week.

Ja ne.

xx Kat
