Updates and Manga Sale

Hey guys, Lani here! Currently working on YYHA20 (Sorry it's taking me so long really trying to make it better than 19 for ya :p) as well as a few TFS Behind the Scenes videos. Just typing this up as a bit of an update for you all.

So yeah, the Holidays are coming up and unfortunately I just recently lost my part time job at the movie theater ^^;
So in a rush to try to get some money go buy presents for my family I'm selling off my Collection of Berserk Manga to anyone who wants them. I'm auctioning em off in sets of 5 although I am missing Vol 18 so that set is a little cheaper. Check out the sets below:

Vol 1-5

Vol 6-10

V0l 11-15

Vol 16-20 (missing 18)

Vol 21-25

Anyone who buys them shoot me an email and I'd be glad to autograph em for you though I don't really know why you'd want me messing up Kentaro Miura's artwork :p

Hope everybody out there is having a good Holiday season and I hope these Manga will make a collector happy ^^v

Peace Everybody!

Happy Birthday to me and Etc.

Sooo much to do in so little time, but luckily you should be seeing alot more work from me in the coming weeks.

For those wondering what I've been up to when I am not behind the monitor of my PC I've been either working, going to school or spending time with the lovely Spnkyhappy who shall be leaving for college on Labor Day.

I got some vlogs in the works once I get some time to sit down and record them for both Scott Pilgrim vs The World and The Expendables, though I'm not sure if I should wait to talk about the Expendables until I see Machete cause I really do want to draw a comparison... we'll see.

Other than that my birthday is coming up so woohoo for 22 (sorry for the shitty rhyme) and a few people have been messaging me and Emailing me about whether I had an Amazon Wishlist. Rather than replying to each individually I guess I may as well post it here and on my twitter so here you go


Honestly I made that mainly as a checklist of things I wanted to get when I had the money to and one night I was just bored off my ass and added some random stuff (Yes there is a Roomba on the list don't judge me!)

So yeah that's what's been goin on in a nutshell. I'll be back later with more updates.

Peace Lanifans

Team4Star Does Canada

Long time no post

Hey guys sorry I haven't updated in a while. Been busy trying to get alot of things done most of which are nearing completion so expect some content from me coming fairly soon.

I had a great time up in Canada at Anime Evolution even stayed a few extra days up there with Taka Kaiser and Masako over at Taka's place. It's always fun going to cons, mainly just getting a chance to see some of my closest friends. As much as I find Anime intriguing and visually appealing, I still wouldn't consider myself a fan. I just kind of see it as another medium of story telling similar to any live action show or movie.

Caught 2 movies while I was up there with everybody and I intend on posting a vlog on those since after seeing other people's opinions on them they seem to be incredibly polarizing films. So yes I have seen both Scott Pilgrim and The Expendables.

I really do love going to cons and getting to see my friends. Hell looks like I'm in luck as it appears I'll be going to quite a few this year. I can't really mention many of them right now since only one has really announced us as guests, but I am really looking forward to spending more time with my friends.

Other than all of that I have just been tying to spend as much time as possible with my lovely lady Spnkyhappy before she runs off to college in about a week where it will be much more difficult for me to reach her :(

So yeah for everyone who was wondering where I was and if I would up date I assure all 3 of you I have not forgotten about this blog and will be updating it with new material soon.

Peace y'all!

Great Pages In Manga: Gantz

Sometimes only one sentence is needed to tell you that shit is going down...


Garflield Minus Garfield Minus John

I enjoy Garfield Minus Garfield, it takes a look into the owner John's life and makes him seem far sadder and more pathetic than he seems when he has his obese cat as a foil. Some clips make me laugh harder than others even though they are a little dark.

and some are just odd.

But sometimes I like to have a little fun and make something even more depressing than it was to begin with. So I present to you:

The Most Depressing Garfield Ever

Rage Face

Just kinda came to my attention that I'm the voice of the Rage Face meme or so some would have me believe ever since this video using an audio clip from my Final Fantasy Unlimited Review was posted.

Not only has it gotten over 200K views (to put it to scale most of my live action vids only get about 20k views where as DBZA gets around 300-500k in the span of a few months) but it's been cited on Encyclopedia Dramatica (probably the only time I will ever link to that site) and Know Your Meme.

Why am I mentioning this at this time you ask? Quite simple really. Due to a small corrupt sound effect file in the latest episode of YYHA I have been working on, the entire episode was corrupted as well as all of the save files for it. Yes that is about 2 days worth of work right there I am glad you asked, and yes I do intend to rebuild it. On that note I present to you my reaction to this situation.
