One of my favorite characters in the animated series, Star Wars: The Clone Wars, is Obi-Wan Kenobi, voiced by the very talented James Arnold Taylor!

There are many great Obi-Wan moments from the series, but some my favorite occur during the episode, The Lawless, which I wrote in a post last year.

#AtoZBlogChallenge: Manga

#AtoZBlogChallenge Topic: Manga

Manga are serialized comic or graphic novel stories created in Japan using a drawing style first developed in the 19th Century. This style includes characters with large eyes, small mouths, and, in many cases, with unusual hair color and/or style.

Other than the artistic style, what I also like about Manga stories are that they are not limited by genre.  A single Manga series can have multiple genres within it. Below are five of my favorite manga stories and the genres that are represented within them:

Vampire Knight

Genres: Romantic Fantasy, Vampire Drama, Young Adult Drama, School Comedy, Political Drama

20140415-221434.jpg

Sailor Moon

Genres: Romance, Teen Comedy, School Comedy, Drama, Fantasy, Science Fiction (Time Travel), Magical Girl

20140415-221746.jpg

From Far Away

Genres: Romantic Fantasy Adventure

20140415-222229.jpg

One Piece

Genres: Comedy, Fantasy, Pirate Adventure

20140415-222508.jpg

Fruits Basket

Genres: Fantasy, Romantic Comedy, Teen School Comedy, Family Drama

#AtoZBlogChallenge: Fangirls Going Rogue

20140407-211304.jpg

#AtoZBlogChallenge Topic: Fangirls Going Rogue

Over the past year, the Her Universe Year of the Fangirl initiative has influenced many Fangirls around the world to connect with other Fangirls. I have been privileged to have spent time on Twitter talking to many different Fangirls about Star Wars, Doctor Who and many other fan related topics. I am so glad that the Year of The Fangirl gave me the opportunity to ‘meet’ and interact with other Fangirls just like me.

Two of the Fangirls that I have connected with because of this initiative are Tricia Barr and Teresa Delgado.

Tricia Barr, @fangirlcantina, Year of the Fangirl contributor, co-host of Fangirls Going Rogue podcast, a contributor to the Star Wars section of Suvudu.com, author of several Star Wars Insider magazine articles, the creator and writer of the novel, WYNDE and manages the popular fangirl related blog, fangirlblog.com.

Teresa Delgado, @icecoldpenguin, host of several Star Wars podcasts, including Fangirls Going Rogue podcast , contributor to Star Wars Report and currently manages two blogs, Fangirl Next Door and Quack In Over Disney.

These two Fangirls are both influential members of the Fangirl community and if it was not for The Year of The Fangirl initiative, I may never have met and interacted with either them. Therefore, I want to thank both Tricia and Teresa for taking the time to co-host a monthly Star Wars Fangirl podcast, called Fangirls Going Rogue, which can be found on the ShotGlass Digital Network. I also want to thank them for interacting with this Fangirl as well! I am proud to know both of you and look forward to the next monthly installment of Fangirls Going Rogue!
