Article: Manga than never became an Anime

Matt Doyle Media

Anime and Manga, much like any art form, is subjective. Truth be told, there are series out there that are both loved and hated depending on who you ask, and we all have our own individual favourites. The chances are that somewhere among these favourites you probably have at least one Manga that you always wanted to see become an Anime, but for one reason or another, it just never happened.

Today, I’m going to talk about four series that fit that category for me. Unlike my normal reviews, I will be keeping my description of each series brief, and I won’t be going too far into the pros and cons of each one, my aim is just to show some potential missed opportunities. Just to show a variety, we’ve got one shōnen, one shōjo, one seinen and one old school series.

[Election ‘016 018] O’No!

Home Clipart Animal Deer




“Witness me!”

“Witness him!”

The pale-skinned man sprayed his face with metallic paint, and, as the men next to him cheered him on, leapt onto a nearby car in a fiery explosion of stupidity and also fire. The car was perfectly intact, because, obviously it was protected from suicide bombers. It was the President’s fucking car. They thought of shit like suicide bombing road bandits when they built cars for Presidents.

“Dammit!” Martin O’Malley shouted, slamming his fist onto his desk. The sheer force of the impact cratered the desk. “Get me a new desk, this one is wearing out!” Several men rushed in, grabbed the desk, and carried it away from the Campaign HQ control room, hopefully bringing in a new one soon enough.

Home for Christmas

I was published a long time back, here you go

Slink Chunk Press

by Elly Baker

White powder falls from the sky

Frozen gale travels through the air

Touches your nose

Turns it into a cherry

on top of a milkshake

Almost there

Feet crunch ice against each step of the stairway

Under the patio

Its roof a shield from wind

In front of you the entrance to your home

Its door a gatekeeper

Deep breaths

Your feet on the mat reading “Welcome”

You grip the door handle

frigid against your palm like a can of soda

Wood creaks

Warm air brushes your face

You step in.

The artificial fireplace burns

its plastic logs perpetually

Sending waves of heat

Your raw nose stings

and your ears burn

A snowflake dashes in before you close the door

Disappears in a wisp, still floating in the air

Your eyes snap forward

Pine tree, PVC

ornamented with a rainbow of items

you almost laugh

Black leather…

One year later — What’s Thedude3445 been up to?

I ended my tenure on this site about a year ago, so I thought it’d be nice for anyone who happens to stumble onto the site (since it still gets about 3-8 views a day even now) about my current projects. Some of these came around when this blog was still active, and others have just begun:

The Madoka Series, by Thedude3445 – My fan fiction series lampooning the anime Madoka Magica that has gone on much, much longer than I originally anticipated. As of this writing, there are two main stories, a one-shot, and two spinoffs, and they’re all hopefully very funny.

Barty Anderson 4: Tale of the Legend of the Crystal Chubacabra – I directed the Official Fan Sequel to the Barty Anderson Trilogy by Byron Hussie. I put my heart and soul into making it as dumb and unprofessional as possible.

Sandswept: The Squiddle Session – The long-running Unofficial Fan Prequel to Homestuck, wherein we get to watch the forty-eight Squiddle players play Sglub and create the Troll Universe! It’s a labor of love, and is the project I’m most proud of out of all of these.

Visions of Etherflow (old) – An old serial that was a collab between myself and three of my friends. It’s silly and pretty dumb, but hey, you might enjoy it.

Beforus: The Album – I just help out occasionally with this one, but it’s a very cool Homestuck fan project; a music album for the Alpha Trolls.

MSPA Prophet (old) – I Am the Prophet.

And, introducing: Home Clipart Animal Deer – A new site run by my friend and I, where we post stories and other things. It’ll be a lot more professional and less bloggy than this place, though it still has a right now because we have no idea how to make websites.

Maybe you’ll enjoy one or two of these, I dunno.

Shutting down the Backblog

As you may have noticed, I have made close to zero posts on this blog this year. My interest in blogging has severely dwindled in the past year or two and rather than leaving this site on an empty note, I decided I would give it a send-off. Obviously, I’m not going to be deleting the site or anything, so everything already on here will stay up, but I won’t be making any new posts. The Backblog is a relic of my high school life, really; I started it a week before I started high school, and it was about the end of high school when I stopped making regular posts. So even if I ever did want to blog again (very unlikely), it wouldn’t feel right to make it on this site.

Thank you for all your support over the past five years, you anonymous readers. It was fun!

Farewell to Robin Williams…

Dante Basco: My take on life...

Today Robin Williams past away and it’s been so surreal, it felt like it came out of nowhere… A text message from a friend made me aware of the news and frantically I jumped online to see if it was true. Sadly, I found out it was and even more sad, I read of the circumstances. I couldn’t keep reading the stories online for it’s too sad.

At times like this, I get very reflective and being a writer, I guess it’s best to write and what better place but my blog. It’s surreal because I haven’t seen Robin for many years yet in he’s so connected to me due to his close involvement in the biggest role of my career in “Hook” where he played Peter Pan and I played the punk kid who took over as leader of the Lost Boys when he left Neverland… Rufio.

Although working…
