Kill Me Baby (Kiru Mī Beibē)

Published by:

Kill Me Baby was a 4 panel manga that gained a little popularity and began serialization in 2009, with the anime adaptation in 2012. It was really a random pick for me. I saw the name and though either it would be funny or have a lot of fighting. I didn’t know anything about it before I placed it in my queue to watch.

Yasuna is the main character of the show, she’s a not so bright character who is always trying to befriend Sonya. She pretty much proclaims she’s Sonya’s friend but Sonya is always rejecting her. The show is mainly about school life but there are a few outside encounters. These two really are funny on their own and don’t need the rest of the characters but they just add to the fun. It’s a lot of gag humor and going through normal school life with an assassin and a ninja as your friends. Continue reading

My First Oni Press Rejection Letter

Published by:

So Oni Press rejected my pitch for Astra Etherium: Adventures of a Space Bounty Hunter in Space. What to do… It’s already in the format Dark Horse wants, I just need to change a few words for captions and stuff like that. Maybe Dark Horse or someone else is a better fit anyway. Still waiting to hear back on Dodge Battle High. Since I’m not expecting a positive response, I’ve already started setting up the things I need for Kickstarter. Going to get some sample pages together and I found an artist I want to work with so Dodge Battle High may be coming whether it’s with Oni Press or not. If it’s not with Oni then I guess Killswitch has to get on the grind.

Maybe it’s good that Astra Etherium was rejected. It gives me time to get the game wrapped up and out and then maybe I’ll already have an installed fanbase for it or at least I hope so anyway. I could end up with 1 person buying my game and everyone else using my picture as a dartboard. So I wait on Dodge Battle High’s acceptance or rejection but either way I’m pushing on with the book. Out of the first 675 or something like that, only 2 books made it to the big desk so I’m not holding out hope.

Etotama

Published by:

Etotama was on the list of spring anime so I checked it out. I checked all the spring stuff as a way of reporting back to others on what I thought and this was one of them.

Etotama is a quest of Nya-tan to regain her memory and become part of the Chinese zodiac. One day she meets Takeru and ends up basically invading his house along with the other members of the Chinese Zodiac. The characters are known as Eto-shin and they are there trying to help Nya-tan regain her lost past. Continue reading
