Now because last month I looked at overrated anime, for this month I will spend it reviewing anime that in my opinion are underrated. These are the anime which either are better than most people say or those that have been sorely overlooked.
Just so every reader knows if you enjoy any of the Anime I review, no matter positive how or negative I am, if you enjoy the Anime that is great. All this is meant to be is a perspective so you can decide whether you would enjoy this anime or not.

Broken Yugioh CardsI've been online at duelingnetwork.com, and I have noticed how freaking broken Synchros and Xyz monsters are. Lets look at Ally of Justice Catastor. His effect, is when ever he fights a non dark type monster, its instant kill. No damage, nothing. That is really cheap.Broken Yugioh Cards8 hours ago in Articles & Interviews More Like This
Now for Xyz. Some Xyz are really easy to summon. Say this for example; you drew in your hand a Battle Ox and a Wolf Axwielder, and you got a second card in your hand which is called Double Summon, you summon them both and boom you get a beast warrior Xyz on the first turn. That is really broken to the point its just not funny anymore.
They Grow Up So FastOver the past few years, I’ve been raised a young one. We’ve laughed, we’ve loved, and I’ve watched him grow. Saying goodbye was the most painful thing I ever had to do, but it was worth it if only just to be there for that one moment when he went out to make his way in the world.They Grow Up So Fast16 hours ago in Articles & Interviews More Like This
I will never forget my sarlacc.
It all started when I was on a business trip, selling canned yams on Tatooine. Through a bizarre string of circumstances, I found myself at the annual Mos Eisley fair playing a game of bingo with some Jawas. I won and many angry shouts of “ootini!” ensued. As I was leaving the bingo table, one of the Jawas handed me my prize: a dirt-filled clay pot with a curious creature inside.
Raising a baby sarlacc had a lot of ups and downs. My food budget was through the roof, but I never had to clean up after him (after all, it takes him 1000 years to digest; it’s been decades and I still don’t think he’s pooped.) I never had any bug

SI Recipe Test: Up BeetSince I have a difficult time remembering which smoothie recipes I've tried and which I haven't, I'll be keeping a list of those I've tested here. You're welcome to enjoy these on your own and comment your thoughts if you like. Note that all ingredients are fresh, nothing canned.SI Recipe Test: Up Beet1 day ago in Articles & Interviews More Like This
My first installment is for the Up Beet, a drink that is designed for a good energy kick from a natural vitamin boost as well as working with the cleaner caffeinated taste of green tea.
Recipe Test: Autumn Collection ~ Up Beet
Final Serving size: 30oz
Red Beet ~ 6 ounces
Beet Greens ~ 2 stalks
Blueberries ~ 4 ounces
Pomegranate Jewels ~ 2 ounces
Green Tea ~ 6 ounces
Agave Nectar ~ .5 ounce
Ice ~ 6 ounces
Initial Thoughts: Something about it...didn't taste right. It was like it had too much of an earthy flavor to it; overpowering. It could have been from the beets themselves but I think it had more to do with the beet greens. Though I washed them the inherent plant matter-like taste remained.

Apologetic Proof Part 7 God and CreationThe Bible teaches very clearly that God is all powerful, and lives outside the boundaries of the universe and that he created the universe by willing it into existence.Apologetic Proof Part 7 God and Creation2 days ago in Articles & Interviews More Like This
In March 2007 Stephen Hawking gave a lecture at a Physics conference in Berkeley California, and he stated that the Universe came from nothing. He stated conclusively that he cannot explain how or why the universe came into existence, but all studies in astrophysics shows the universe in expanding, which means that it did indeed at some time in the past start from one point. Even the most brilliant minds, both Atheists and Christian, agree that the universe had a starting point, and came from nothing.
This leaves us with an exercise in logic. Did everything that exists on our planet, in our galaxy and in the universe, happen as a random accident? Even the most brilliant Atheist minds on the planet agree that the universe for some “unknown” reason came into existence out of nothing. If that is so, what or who

Miiverse quote: Pic of the day. Turnips are used in the Villager's up-air and down-air attacks. Perhaps because the turnip prices fluctuate depending on the day's market, the number of turnips that appear changes every time. How cute.
Monday's picture showed Villager's up and down aerial attack, which uses the turnips from the Animal Crossing series. The number of turnips will change randomly each attack, meaning the damage output and knockback will probably also vary. If so, expect the red turnips to do the most damage.

AUMFANTPRUWMDMOFCVThe Authorization for the Use of Military Force Against the New Terran Protectorate to Respond to Use of Weapons of Mass Destruction, Military Occupation, Force Colonization and Violence (S.J.Res 2) is a Senate Joint Resolution that would authorize Expeditionary Admiral Grant Gerard DuGalle Calliope to use the Federation military to intervene in the ongoing Invasion of the World of Harmony. The bill was filed by Senate Majority Leader Ferdinand Jason on September 9, 2173 in a specially scheduled pro forma Senate session that took place during the last week of the August recess. The bill authorizes only 60 days of military action, with the possibility of a one-time extension of 30 days. The bill also specifically grants the use of ground troops.AUMFANTPRUWMDMOFCV3 days ago in Articles & Interviews More Like This

She was given a test: ‘put these words in alphabetical order.’ (words like apple, and banana, etc.)
The little girl did her writing- and what she produced was this;

They found that she had in fact done exactly what she was asked. She had put each one of the letters in those words into alphabetical order.

Characters: Fixing Mary-SueThere is one trap that everyone dreads falling into, one that has become well known because so many people do fall into it, especially when it comes to creating characters. There’s a trap that’s become viewed with such displeasure that it’s actually become a bit of a stigma for writers.Characters: Fixing Mary-Sue4 days ago in Articles & Interviews More Like This
It’s the Mary Sue/Gary Stu character trap.
I’m going to say this outright: Mary Sue’s are not a bad thing. They’re just poorly executed. Ninety percent of the problem with a Mary Sue, is that the original creator is simply too lazy to try and come up with a creative way of getting someone in and out of situations, and so fall back on what's familiar, which is almost inevitably a cliche. It’s an easy fix, if you’re not lazy.
Unfortunately, I’ve seen more articles about ‘avoiding’ them, more than I’ve seen anything with ‘fixing’ them. There is a difference. Avoidance does not correct the problem; it merely saves it f

Every webpage dealing with writing columns suggests that I first choose my target audience. How about I let you decide if you consider yourself to be my target audience on your own? Take a minute and make up your mind. Yes or no? If your answer is no, stop reading right now. NOW! GOOD!
Now that we've settled that I'd like to thank all of you who have decided to take the leap of faith and wonder into the unknown. You may wander how exactly is it that you can know if you are my target audience when this article doesn't really seem to be going anywhere or be about anything in particular. Well, the answer is – you can't; but don't worry, I'm not sure about where this text is going either. So, how about I give it a topic? Yes? You like that? Good!

Characters: Creating Believable BeingsYou most definitely know when you’re a writer. You see a story, in every picture, find plot twists with every brushstroke. That phrase, ‘a picture is with a thousand words’? Well, you’ll see three thousand. You might just get excited about that new pen, the one that makes you feel like you’re writing pure silk, or maybe your favorite part of back-to-school season is the idea of picking up an extra notebook (or a dozen) to hold your thoughts. You just know when you’re a writer.Characters: Creating Believable Beings5 days ago in Articles & Interviews More Like This
And perhaps the most tell-tale sign is your characters. You see, and hear them, everywhere. And why shouldn't you? They’re the absolute core of your novel. Your plot’s weak in some places? Well, try taking out your characters entirely. Don’t replace them with anything, just take them out. How does your plot move now? Your setting is less than believable? Try writing a story that’s nothing but description and plot. You'll see why characters are nece

Can he or she take me away from this world.
I don't know when it became so fueled by hatred, but it is eating away at me.
Every turn I take old eyes glare at me as I proudly stroll the streets with my sons small eyes gleaming at me ever so brightly, and I know, I know what they are thinking.
They are judging me. "Another too-young mum with an accidental baby to steal away our money"
Because of a Government who has convinced the majority that the minority are lazy thieves.
No one stops to think, well maybe he was planned, maybe she is still with the father, maybe she is older than she actually looks. He was, we are, I am.
When did it become so okay to live in such a world where we judge before we get to know.
How many people have played games and lied from fear of becoming like me?
Outspoken, honest, true.
I am so far from perfection it is silly. But I get to know before I judge, I research before I make an opinion.

Surprisingly truthful articleYesterday I stumbled upon an article titled "My Abortion". It immediately pecked my interest. A family member who I was with said "Don't read that. It looks like Pro Abortion propaganda crap. The magazine is obviously leftist". I rolled my eyes and looked through the magazine anyway. I wanted to read what it said. I didn't care whether it was Pro Life or Pro Choice. I figured I'd learn something from it. There were stories from different women and their experience with abortion. The first women kept her baby. The rest went through with the abortion but felt forced into it,guilty, or were simply very desperate and felt they had no one to turn to for comfort or help. There was one story about a women who saw Pro Lifers outside the abortion clinic holding signs with pictures of bloody dead babies and was afraid of them. She said something along the lines of "I knew it was a baby but I felt it was okay to kill it because what else am I going to do in my situation?"

As previously mentioned, participants will chose a character from the study list (which will be on the main page once I have the studies in) to illustrate. Normally, the participant needs to make two illustrations of two different characters to upload their own character study, but if you chose a character with NO renditions it counts as two. Basically, in order to upload your character study, you can either illustrate any TWO mTrois submissions already done by other artists or ONE submission that hasn't been done by any other artist.
If you're in the process of illustrating a character that has no other illustrations, please TAG it (either by commenting or letting me know directly) just to say that you're currently working on a rendi

Danach ein paar Kinder in der Dämmerung mit ihren Laternen gesehen.
Es ist November und es ist soweit …
St. Martin reitet wieder. Ich mag das ....
Als ich ein Kind war, ist er übrigens wirklich noch geritten und hat einen Mantel geteilt.
Anschließend sind wir mit unseren selbst gebastelten Laternen singend durch die Straßen unseres Ortes gelaufen.
Ja so war das – eine schöne Erinnerung übrigens. Besonders der Mann auf dem großen Pferd hatte mich beeindruckt.
Erinnerungen, die mir keiner nehmen kann, und auch keiner nehmen will. Selbst wenn Sonne, Mond und Sterne vom Himmel fallen sollten …
Und so manches Mal gab es anschließend ein Schnitzel mit Zigeunersoße. Oder sollte man es nicht besser Pusztaschnitzel nennen? Oder ist der Begriff Zigeunersoße vielleicht sogar geschützt?
