Hello and greetings fellow otaku,
Now before I dive right into this post, let me ask you guys a quick question. Do you feel that an anime that focuses on a young boys dream in making a specialty bread for his country is a good idea for an anime? Well I don’t know about you, but I think it is a pretty interesting idea. So for this edition of What I Am Into Right Now, I am going to focus on the series known as Yakitate Japan.
Yakitate Japan is a series that focuses on the main character Azuma Kazuma, a young boy who is destined to create a national bread for his home country of Japan. Now while this may sound boring at first, the story does get interesting at the start of the second episode. But I am not going to bore you with all the details, just watch the first episode at the end of this post and I can guarantee you that you will fall in love with this series. So until next time, remember that there is a ton of great anime and manga out there. All you have to do is find it. Ltrs.
Side Note: And for those of you wondering if I am planning on doing a full review of this series? Yes, I am planning on doing a review of both the anime and manga versions of Yakitate Japan in the near future. Stay with AFC for more details.

Hello and greetings fellow Otaku,
As most of you readers know by now that I am an self acclaimed Otaku, but I have other interest besides anime, manga and video games. So I have decided to dedicate a new segment to share these interests. I have decided to call this segment “What I am into right now”. This segment will cover some of the things that I am currently into at the moment. We will talk about anime once in a while but this section will mostly reflect around sci-fi novels and other things. Ok enough of that let’s get started.
On the anime front, I am currently watching Azumanga Daioh, Silent Mobius and Suzuka. Yes folks, I said Azumanga Daioh. It is a really interesting series and is quite different from most of the anime series that I have seen so far. As for Silent Mobius, I am just about finished watching the series but I haven’t gotten thru the first motion picture but I will have a full review for you guys in the next few weeks so stay tuned for that. Suzuka is also another great series that I have gotten to recently, if your into romantic comedy anime this is a series to defiantly watch. You can get the box set at you local anime retailer or you can watch the entire series over at hulu. I will post a link to it at the end of this post.
Science Fiction\Fantasy Novels
As for science fiction novels, I am currently reading the The Immortal Nicholas Flamel. I am currently reading the first novel in the series entitled “The Alchemyst”. So far it has been an interesting read and I can’t wait to start on the next one in the series “The Magician”. I will defiantly be writing a review on this book for you guys in the next few days.
And that will wrap up this edition of what I am into right now. I hope you all enjoyed this new segment. I just wanted to try something different for a change. So until next time, remember that their is a ton of great anime and manga out there. All you have to do is find it. Ltrs.
