Here it is...
You require the following ingredients:
1 1/3 cup joshinko (rice flour. Or you can get rice flour and grind it, but it must be ground just enough so it's as a flour. Any wheat grinder would work well. Just use the electronic one. I did it by hand and it hurts>>)
Making the rice dumplings:
Put rice flour in a bowl and add warm water. Knead the dough well (or just use a metal spoon if you want to). Make small round dumplings (the size of rubber balls). Place the dumplings in a (vegetable) steamer and steam them on high heat for 10 min. Cool the dumplings and skewer them in bamboo sticks. (3-4 dumplings each stick.)

Naruto the movie:Road to Ninja Update 3! Poll 3!Naruto the movie:Road to Ninja Update 3! Poll 3!3 years ago in Personal More Like This
Sorry this is a little late but those who don't know here's a heads up!
Celebrating 10 years of Naruto anime, series creator Masashi Kishimoto will be providing the story and character designs for this summer's Naruto movie, Road to Ninja. According to rumors, the movie will not feature the characters as we've come to know them. And, new illustrations of a Sasuke redesign seem to support this.
According to the buzz, its Sasuke may be kind-hearted and loyal to his friend Naruto, while Kakashi will be a bit less cool and calm, and instead more heated.
Apparently this is the movie's Sasuke. Is this an alternative, friendly rival Sasuke?

Sakiyomi Jan Bang TV recently had a chance to interview Naruto's creator Masashi Kishimoto. This interview is geared specifically toward the upcoming Naruto's movie Road to Ninja: Naruto the Movie. Below is the highlight of the interview:
"Since this time I wanted to write about Naruto properly as a protagonist, and delve deeply into his feelings, I fussed a lot over the ramen shop scene between Naruto and Iruka at the beginning. At one point, the storyboards were all finished but since the images were somewhat different (from what I wanted), I had all of them fixed which was pretty selfish of me. But of course, since the things I'm satisfied with are also present in the scenes I was able to do, I'd like for people to watch them. As for Minato and Kus

My ten commandments for webcomic writingMaia and I actually have been working on B.I.B.L.E. whenever we've been able to. It has just been behind-the-scenes stuff. Right now we're in the process of rewriting the entire middle part of Rebound vol.2 since, frankly, the old version was awful and felt stilted and forced.My ten commandments for webcomic writing2 years ago in Personal More Like This
We're making it 1000 times better, and it just made me think, wow, if there's anything we've improved during these last four years of playing comic creators, it's our writing. We had to make a lot of mistakes to learn, but learned we have.
I just felt like writing down some of the things I've learned the hard way or swear by in general. Maybe some of you comic writers out there will find it useful too.
I bring yoouu, my personal ten commandments for comic writing:
1. Make the biggest possible gap between what you write and what you draw
Stories change as you write them and there's only a slim chance that they'll turn out exactly as you imagined them

Best place on the web?I wanted to share a few facts about a company that is very dear to my heart:Best place on the web?1 year ago in Personal More Like This
It's been my favourite place on the web for about seven years now. It also has some impressive little-known stats - it's the sixth biggest social network in the world. It has 28 million users. It set the standard for the user icon, and incorporated the first 'like' button. It was also, apparently, the first social network, 12 years ago.
I love it because I find it to be a wonderfully positive environment - way less haters than pretty much any site I ever invested any time in. It's supportive of creators, whatever level they are at. It encourages diversity, and doesn't judge it's users, no matter what they are into (pretty much!), writers, artists and photographers all.
It also, many people don't know, sponsored artist's alley at SDCC, keeping it in the main hall, laying down a soft carpet to spare feet, and providing padded chairs. It sponsored Tr!ckster, and the Spectrum convention. It genuinely - and I mean
Reviews: Cosplay Wig ShopsSo, here we start with the review thingy about cosplay stuff.Reviews: Cosplay Wig Shops3 years ago in Personal More Like This
Since I ran into a loooooooooooot of trouble in the past weeks regarding wigs I will start with them.
First of all some general important informations:
- ALWAYS keep an eye on the feedback of a shop. If there are negative or natural feedbacks READ THEM. Not every negative feedback is appropriate and some shops sell more than just wigs. So be careful.
- ALWAYS be carefull with shops that advertise with asian cosplayers. A lot of pictures are taken from the japanese highclass cosplaysupplier cospediawig or the chinese Tabaeo stores. Have a close look at the pictures. Often you can see some blured details or removed watermarks. I even found some fellow non asian cosplayers by now as advertisment for wigs they definitely didn't buy.
Some shops even take pictures from wigs on wigsstands from other sellers. Look and think twice if you buy there. You can be lucky and get what you see, but there is a pretty high chance you ge
