Shojo Beat

Viz Media has been my primary manga source for the past four years, surpassing my fondness for Tokyopop because of one factor, Shojo Beat. I was hooked from the moment I laid eyes on the preview edition and subscribed the very next day. Before this point, I was never able to get into shojo manga because of the lack of variety and the inability to relate with their characters. Shojo Beat has brought the variety and relatable characters that I crave and I thank you for that. As a loyal consumer I have bought every last Shojo Beat magazine, and from Absolute Boyfriend to Yurara I have read, own or have owned 95% of all Shojo Beat titles, mainly because of the magazine. I have also branched out into owning other Viz titles, because Viz has brought me something I really enjoy. No amount of Shonen Jump can fill the void that Shojo Beat leaves in its wake.

Shojo Beat magazine, you will be greatly missed.


anna128: “Anna” Sculpy Figure

I’ve always thought the custom Sculpy wedding cake toppers were awesome, but since I’m not getting married anytime soon, I thought I’d try some of the figure making techniques using Anna from my webcomic anna128 as my model.

Lol! I must say it was a lot of work for her to look this “good” but this will be the closest thing to a figure Anna is ever going to be! As a side note, her hair is pink only because I don’t own any red Sculpy. Hopefully she’ll be clothed soon!
