Appearance: He has light pink hair, dark pink eyes, white skin like most of his kind and he has white cat ear like horns sticking out of each side of his head and he wears a black hoodie, blue jeans, and white and black sneekers. Hobbies: Killing and helping other diclonius.
Personality: Ame is first shown to be a silent and loner type but in reality he's a cold blooded and sadistic killer. Although he shows little to no emotion he loves to kill and won't hesitate to strike down his victims any chance he get's. Like most diclonius he loves to cut limbs with his vectors but he only does it to torture his victims if he feels that they deserve to suffer befo…Read more >
Appearance: Unlike most diclonius he has long purple that he usually ties up into a ponytail, slightly tanned skin, pinkish brownish eyes, and he has cat ear like horns sticking out of his head and he wears mostly a black muscle shirt with long black jeans and he wears some black slip on shoes. He also wears some other outfits.
Hobbies: Surviving and trying to earn respect.
Hates: Being disrespected or unacknowledgable.
Personality: Iroha first comes of as serious but he's actually very friendly once you get to know him. Unlike most diclonius he refuses to give into his killer instincts and he only uses his vectors when absolutely necessary. He refuses to use them against hum…Read more >
In Harry Potter lore, a Thestral is a winged beast of burden resembling a horse - if you haven't personally seen a death. Once you have, you see them as they really are. Still oddly magnificent, they become in your eyes a skeletal dark steed. You will now never see them as regular if winged horses ever again, and you have a hard time conveying to others what they now look like to you.
I think with this in mind, I may have figured out one of the dividers between Elfen Lied fans and at least some of the haters or at least the dismissers. In short, if you haven't been bullied, you cannot see that EL is not as far over the top as some claim. If you haven't experienced that kind of deep down, be-afraid, you-are-hunted, you-are-not-wanted-and-nev…Read more >

Some years back, my recently-passed father, Bob Morris, told me something that startled me.
You see, back in school, I had a very hard time with the other kids. Maybe some of them would put a different spin on it, but I don't care much what that might be. Unsurprising for an Elfen Lied fan, I was bullied and harassed, whatever you want to call it. The fact remained, a lot of people went out of their way to make me endlessly miserable on a continual basis. After a time, the school staff wasn't much help, and the teasing often became attacks. Much like our girl Lucy, I frequently made them regret those attacks, but that only meant they mostly pulled back and ran away after starting in. They got very good at that.
To this day, I can't watch fic…Read more >

She was annoying, only knew how to get underfoot, and was the second most chronic attention-seeker I have ever known. She wanted to jump on absolutely everyone, the exception being my great-nephew Jayden, who chased her around. She was also sweet, loving, and always brought a smile to my face--mostly. She never really got that she wasn't a puppy anymore. She was my Dad's second cocker spaniel, replacing a dog named Cookie.
My Dad and my Step-Mom moved to a new, much smaller place, not the bi-level with a large yard she was used to. She took badly to it, and all the signs of old age she had been showing became far worse, senility, lack of bladder control, and digestive problems.
My Dad has Stage IV Cancer in three areas, and while managed, hi…Read more >
I have for six years written for the Christmas Specials Wiki, and in that time, have run afoul on multiple occasions of its admin, User Jeremy Creek. He has a style for the wiki and enforces it without comment or debate. That may be his right, but I've reached the last of my patience with it. In short, he cuts out anything that does not directly relate to the Christmas special, movie, or episode in question, or if he just doesn't like it. Now for some of the edits that's fine, but he goes way too far. So with the pointlessness of getting mad, I'm getting even.
From now on, every time he excises something I put in and felt was relevant, I'm posting it here. Starting with the latest.

Vash didn't answer. Didn't even tell him to shut up. So he tried again.

No wiki's work is ever done; tweaks beget tweaks, and some major addition means new errors and outdated info to ferret out.
But I'm pleased to say that I have accomplished the following in the last month or so :
- Each manga chapter summary now has a short sentence in its trivia section explaining the sometimes off-putting images on the cover; some needed it, some didn't, but now they're all done.
- Wherever appropriate, page quotes sit atop and at bottom of every non-summary article, save a few which are the personal projects of other admins.
- Infoboxes are now the rule in most pertinent articles
- Multiple navboxes are on most pages, exposing some of our lesser-known articles to the light of day.

Linkara, of Atop The Fourth Wall, retweeted my essay on Kouta's Addlement. This can only bring in new readers and users.Read more >
Now that we're at the number we strove for, the time has come to review all existing articles, to strengthen, enrich and correct the existing articles.
My problem is, besides the size of the project, is that I wrote most of the articles here, or a large enough amount of them for it to be the same thing. It's hard for me to judge my own work. So what I ask of all here is simple, and I think fair : Just glance over the articles. Look for anything glaringly off. Fictional Examples :
1 - The chapter/episode summary in question says that Kouta got up, bit into an apple, and threw it at the wall in frustration. You remember it differently, and a check reveals it was Nozomi who got up, it was a pomegranate, and she just dropped it back onto the tab…Read more >
...if you dare! These are from my brother's display case, chock full of (mostly) advertising icons. Capitalism has its flaws, but we make way cool advert mascots!Read more >
1 - I've reserved the Character Journey I'm calling 'Kouta's Addlement' for the future. Since this would be my fourth, it will also be my last, to be fair, since there just aren't that many characters who merit such an article.
2- Now that we're at that magic number, 400, let's drill down and re-check all the existing articles. Minor stuff, just correct. Anything egregious, I'm going to create a forum just for major corrections, since some things are not fact but opinion or extrapolation.
3 - I'd like to have a creator article for Seiji Kishimoto, who aided LO when the characters were redesigned for the anime. It may be that technically, we need a 401st article to cross the threshold at AnimeManga Wiki, and this one would be appropriate, pro…Read more >
I would like my next Character Journeys article to be about Kouta's memories, unless someone has a prior claim.Read more >
Well as it seems that we can post a little bit of fanfic here I'll post a sample of my latest chapter for my story 'Progeny of Sorrows'.
Nozomi waited with baited breath as she watched Kyou cast an intense stare at the various ingredients they were going to need for the planned special dinner. "Are those the rights ones? Are you sure?"
It only earned her a quick gesture from Kyou to be quiet as she was busy searching for just those ingredients that were nothing less than perfect.
Carefully inspecting each and every single potato and carrot that she came across Kyou took great care to select only those examples she deemed worthy. Nozomi was simply amazed as she didn't know one could be this critical when it came to selecting vegetables, t…Read more >

While the shining golden sun rose across the towering facades of the buildings and the back alleys of Kamakura, the residents of Maple Inn slowly started waking up. In a couple of hours the highway would be clogged with the rush of automobiles, and the sidewalks jammed with the bustle of the various pedestrians on the way to work and school. The weekend was a day away, and, across the city, a feeling of peace and tranquillity seemed to slowly be settling over the tiny haml…

Tenderness Is Not Allowed To Persist
by Rob Morris
Mayu was a dutiful girl, always trying to be good.
Since good was defined by never upsetting Mama, this was hard. She even began to wonder if she was the kind of person who deserved to have bad things happen to her.
She wanted to talk to her Papa, but Papa was already talking with his brother, her uncle. It sounded like sad stuff, so she didn't interrupt (a dutiful girl never would).
"So you were there? At the Festival? You could tell a little brother these things, man."
Uncle smiled, and made sure to smile at Mayu, which made her smile.
"Got an idea. Why doesn't Mayu-chan go and see her Aunt and the new baby? I'll bet they'd really both like that!"
The little girl got up, and nodded enthus…Read more >

The man's question was cut off along with his head. His murderer knew she had a day or two at best before either the family's absence or the smell was noted.
"All of Kanto must like spoiled milk! Maybe they have cocoa powder to mix it with?"
No cocoa, only strawberry. The powder was the same color as her hair, and always giving her this had been a joke to the orphanage attendants. Lots of things had.
"Yeah. I should have tripped the gas main or something, before I left. But then, I wouldn't have met him, would I?"
She actually tried to feel bad for these people. They had done her no wrong--at least in part because she hadn't given them a chance to, but still.

The article pages are now becoming cluttered, plus many sites use these comments only for talk about the articles themselves, not the series in question; that is to say, they will say, this should have a separate listing for the personality or powers, or something else structural.
We have forums, and they are badly underutilized. These are the appropriate place for long discussions of things, many of which we on our level can never EVER hope to resolve. I don't wish to damp down the enthusiasm of any users, but it is also a bad fit for articles meant to inform, especially when we have a place specifically set aside for such discussions.
Please remember, we have no official connection whatsoever to the series. Our wishes and suggestions will …Read more >
I'd be lying if I said this was a lost classic. But it definitely has its moments. The two lead actors, Forrest Tucker and Larry Storch, have comic timing and the ability to make corny groaner jokes almost work. Bob Burns, playing Tracy The Gorilla, makes the schtick work for this non-speaking role. Repetitive? Oh, HELL yeah! Bad sets? Check and double-check. Routines that are the reason vaudeville died screaming? Yup. SPFX that were neither S nor P? You got it.
But the shows got a guest list busting wide with talent. Bernie Kopell, aka Siegfried from Get Smart and Doc on The Love Boat. Kathy Garver, Cissy on Family Affair and Firestar on Spider-Man. Stanley Adams, Cyrano Jones from The Trouble With Tribbles. Two future Seinfeld actors. Mik…Read more >
In my neverending quest for anime that have nothing to do with "normal highschool boy/girl who does X thing WHEN SUDDENLY" stories, I recently came across Maoyu Maou Yuusha, often called Maoyu, which is another of ARMS' productions and is based on a light novel series by Mamare Touno, who also wrote the Log Horizon novel series. What drew me in first was the character design by Hiroaki Karasu, who would later do the character design for Brynhildr in the Darkness (in a similar vein to Seiji Kishimoto doing the character design for Himawari! and its sequel series after working on Elfen Lied), but what really sucked me in was how it flips your expectations of the story on its head in the first five minutes.

Enter - if you dare! The one pic is of my animated Batmobiles collection, most from collectors' trap Eaglemoss, with their own cases and lenticular displays taken from the animated series in question. They are all 1/43 scale, the exception being the 1/50 scale first 'Super Friends' Batmobile from 1973-1978. Eaglemoss, sadly, has ended its production of Batman Automobilia, so neither that nor the later 'Super Powers/Challenge' Super Friends -mobile will be made by them. Two others are 1/18 scales of the 1966 Classic TV Batmobile with an Adam West Batman figure, coupled with the Super Powers-Challenge Of The Super Friends plastic-but-awesome 1984 piece with those versions of Batman and Robin. The final one is my NECA Toys Nintendo Godzilla f…Read more >
Without spoilers, let me offer up an enormously positive review of the new Netflix series, Voltron : Legendary Defender. Based on the 1981 Toei anime Beast King GoLion's American Dub/Adaptation, Voltron, Defender Of The Universe, this series is the first animated version to do a reboot of the concepts, rather than attempt a continuation of the first series. Since so many elements of the 1984 series were forced by censorship and the limits of dubbing, this is one of those times when a clean break is called for, and this one is handled enormously well, with plot details and premises thought out and followed through on. The villains are no pushovers, nor are they incompetent. This is by the same crew that brought us Avatar and Korra, and the app…Read more >
What I said last year will now become a reality. If I fail to complete my medical billing studies, I will have wasted a gift from someone, and also I will regret it for the rest of my life. If anyone wants specifics, they can PM me at Fanfiction.net. But long story short, I need to suspend my wiki and my fic work entirely until this is done. Please only contact me if it is critical.
Some instructions for my absence :
1 - Just ban spammers, after you have determined that's who they are. A whole year.

At the appreciable age of 96, an actor named Alan Young passed this week. He was not a man you might have known right away, but you may have heard of the show where he played straight man to a talking horse named Mister Ed. I'll bet its either one of those shows that everyone knows or knows about, or its so old or so uniquely American few do now. In any event, that was the role he played before I was born, and in reruns throughout my childhood.
Sometime around when I became an adult, though, this man chose to become the richest duck in the world. From Ducktales through to its remake videogame in 2013, Alan Young was the voice of Donald Duck's loving skinflint uncle, overseer of Huey, Dewey, Louie, and the biggest child of all, Launchpad McQ…Read more >

As we go through the wiki, we should find chapters, episodes and character articles, which tend to have long listing navboxes. In those articles, placed just on top of the main appropriate navbox, we should place an navbox from a subject related to that character, chapter or article. For example, Father of a New Race could have 'Science & Super-Science' articles listing. The Girl's Past or Memories That Can't Be Killed could have the Essays navbox, since one deals with child abuse and another essay, amnesia.
I leave this all up to our able users, with one catch. Only one 'extra' navbox per page, and that extra s…Read more >
The concept of fair use is supposed to protect review sites and the like, but outdated loopholes in the existing internet copyright law is making the lives of the YouTubers we follow impossible. Whether it is opportunism from YT's vague strike laws or a concerted effort to destroy fair use, the result is the same. Listen to this, and let your voice be heard, because let's face it, Wikia lives and breathes from Fair Use, and as the man once said of those targeted by the Nazis, let's not wait until they come for us.

My ~6 week old puppy, Stella, has an...interesting choice in music.
Today, I unpacked the custom made Lilium music box I was given as a present not too long ago. I wind it up, open the lid, and let it play, and no sooner do I do so, Stella's bolted up out of her bed nearby and is plodding over to my desk to look around, presumably for whatever's making the sounds. Upon repeat windups, I've noticed she'll stop whatever she's doing, look in the direction of the music box, and come toddling over to see what's going on.
It's a sign of...something, but of what? Who knows :V

I've come across what I view as an increasing problem in 'quest' shows, at least here in the US.
Now, I tend not to watch quest shows, as a rule. As I may have said here before, I have way too many childhood memories of shows cancelled well before the goal is even in sight, or sometimes tantalizingly close. But now I have a new bug-a-boo, and its sadly a result of good writing practices.
They are tech and wealth-stacked, armored on levels physical, legal, and public opinion, and no one in their evil organization objects in the slightest to instantly carrying out the most ruthless of orders. Which is fine. They're bad people. They should be like this.

We succeeded in moving most of our things to our new house, save for the things in the fridge, but those couldn't really be moved since we....don't have a fridge at the moment. The only one we had came packaged with the apartment, and until my folks come over here with a spare fridge of their own, my man-thing and I are stuck with nonperishables for food.
And the house we moved into is grossly filthy. My mom and I spent four hours cleaning things up and it's still not complete. Turns out the source of the godawful smell is from the previous tenants' dog, whom they let pee everywhere in the carpet and that sort of smell lingers forever. My parents have a number of connections to get us proper carpet and hardwood flooring (the current "hardwo…Read more >

I want to create an article for the new Fandom Wikia, and I had this idea.
There are many odd points in Elfen Lied where events in vastly different pieces in other genres. I'd like to list as many as 25, but would settle for 10. Now, I don't mean simple things like the Chief wanting to take over the world, so to speak--that's almost generic. But really odd points that probably are just coincidence, but are so close as to make you do a double-take.
Here's two of my own examples, and I hope you all can add more :
- When Kouta falls ill, he begs an uncomprehending Nyu for water, at which point she starts fetching everything but that. When Yuka returns, she stares at the pile of stuff next to his futon in wonder. On Avatar The Last Airbender, when …
400 completed articles on this wiki has long been my personal goal for it. As I've said before, the next level after that is 1000, and I'm not interested in the tricanery it would take to make that happen. While we've stretched to get this far, I still like to think we've done it legit. My greatest disappointment still remains the relative lack of FanWorks listings, but even in that we've done OK. Now, with only 15 articles to go, I think it will happen soon. I would actually like to get to 405 or 410, and let me explain why.
Now that we are this close, I'm less concerned with crossing the goal line than with how fit we are when we get there. That's why I want the extra 5 to 10 articles past 400. I'd like to see us less focused on new artic…Read more >

I decided to fiddle around with my Nendoroid More sets and other Nendoroid faceplates to make a little scene of Lucy singing. It came to mind while playing Stella Glow, where song magic is rampant, and while posing the Lucy Nendo, I imagined her singing Hilda's "Song of Ruin." Marie's song also came to mind.
Also pictured is her in the dress of Nao from Mabinogi. Unfortunately, her hair piece didn't allow for her to be posed on a stand, so I had to hold her.
Though after taking these pictures, I switched her back to her regular faceplate, since it fit into the hair better.Read more >
Well gotten a nice new figure today and it's one of my favourite characters in anime, being basically the first anime serie that I came into contact with though at the time I had no idea what anime was. Likely a lot of you know of this serie as well and chances are that you have fond memories of it. I'm talking off course about Sailor Moon.
Now I've never been much of a fan of the inner scouts, rather my interest went to the outer scouts which didn't get that much time in the series and the one in particular that always managed to capture my attention was Sailor Pluto, I blame the long green hair and the black boots for it.
So today she has arrived at my place, this officially licensed figure from Banpresto's 'Girls Memories'- series. Made o…Read more >
Let's not blow any sunshine. There are no planned Elfen Lied projects that we know of at the start of 2016. If there were, we have no guarantee of their success, and let's face it, the quality of revival adaptations is a curve straight out of Wonka's boat ride sequence.
Yet, stranger things have happened. While the list of bad adaptations is long and hideous (Dragonball Evolution, Jem!, Fantastic Four 2015), two movies this year have made me realize it can be done correctly.
The Peanuts Movie and Star Wars Episode 7 hit it out. Now, I will concede, these are long-running franchises that have been done right in the past, and have a lot of fans to guide a creator who takes them seriously. But these notably took those franchises beyond their or…Read more >

Someone, I think it was Literature Nerd, said a while back that trying to fix the Tropes page about EL was not worth it, Sisyphean I think he called it. Now, I think LN was right. Yet there is a lot of misinformation out there, and we surely cannot clean up every site with wrong stuff about EL, even if we wanted to.
So I had this thought : If a user here catches sight of bad info, let us know about it. We can attempt to incorporate a 'Its Not Like That' response into the appropriate articles on this Wiki, be it in Trivia or what have you. We won't 'shame' the site that posted it or any such nonsense, merely assert the incorrect (if it is so) info and why it is wrong, or how it could have been arrived at.
This much, I think is doable.Read more >
