Bogside Artists Plagirism Accusations Against Rowling: Performs Magical Feat (TV Shows)








KAAA….MEEEEE…HAA..ME..HHAAAAAAAAAAAAA……………..! Every major Dragon Ball fans know that comes from the Dragon Ball series, but the dumb and ignorant Bogside Arists would call you delusional for that, among so many other Anime/Manga series and fictional stories or franchises.

The Bogside Artists claim that Harry Potter author JK Rowling plagiarized their book, Travels with Li Po because both have numerous “similarities”, one of “similarities” is that both stories have both stories have their characters performing magical feats.

I can go on record and say that they are not the only stories have their characters performing magical feats. If so many other stories have characters doing magic or relating to magic, then this “similar” does not make it plagiarism. Also Travels with Li Po are not the only source for “magic” ideas as there are a million sources where Rowling could get her ideas from and other fictional authors and writers could demonstrate. I will exploit each and many other fictional stories as I can to show that Rowling did not plagiarized from the Bogside Artists. If so many fictional authors or writers have the “similar” idea, then it shows how easy people can come up with this specific idea and if it this easy then the Bogside Artists shouldn’t be the only source for “characters performing magical feats”.

Also I wrote a similar blog with “Cast of Series Introduced”. Speaking off, from my “Bogside Artists’ Plagiarism Accusations Against Rowling” blog series, I will number each example that I have mention on having similar ideas starting from the “Cast of Series Introduced” blog.




Let’s start off with my personal favorite Anime, InuYasha. InuYasha is about a typical 15 year old Japanese school girl named Kagome Higurashi found her family’s well and then a demon sucked her in the past of Feudal Era Japan. She meets a half human and half demon (dog) stuck to a tree and then she frees him. She also brings the Shikon Jewel that can grant any wish of the person in the possession of it. However, Kagome accidentally shatters it and a couple of dozen of pieces flew across the country. Now Inuyasha, Kagome, and other companions they meet up must find all the pieces before evil forces finds them. Sadly the Bogside Artists have rebuts all this and call me delusional for even summarizing or/and mentioning previous times like true and typical ignorant cowards.

Starting off with the main character, InuYasha. As a half demon he can do numerous magical feats like Harry Potter and whatever main character in Travels with Li Po. InuYasha has the Iron Weaver Soul Stealer (the most common one without the sword) by attacking with his sharp claws and Blades of Blood whenever he is bleeding, he can turn his blood into deadly weapons. Also InuYaha has a samurai sword known as the Tessaiga, which is inherited by his father. With the Tessaiga, InuYasha gets extra powers like the Wind Scar (the most common one next the Iron Weaver Soul Stealer), the Backlash Wave that can deflects an enemy’s special attack (but twice the power), and the Barrier Shattering.

Also there are some negative magic for InuYasha, like kryptonite for Superman. One is that at least one night every month the moon will be the other side of the planet. InuYasha’s main powers come from the moon so if the moon is the other side then InuYasha loses all his demon powers and then become a full human until the sun comes up. Another weakness are the magic beads, if Kagome tells InuYasha to “sit”, then the beads will become magically heavy and he goes slamming hard to the ground. Many times Kagome abuses this power when InuYasha disagrees with her or gets angry… or flirting with another woman or other women flirting with him like Kikyo and Sango.

Oh Well I will let a You Tube video for the Bogside Artists to cowardly ignore…

Let see other magical feats, well we have Miroku with a cursed hand that can suck anything  unless he has magical beads to cover his hand. However, the hole of the void will get bigger and the user will get sucked in unless the main villain of the story, Naraku is gone once and for all. Also Miroku has sacred talismans that can harm a lower class demon.

Also other people can perform magical feats if they have a piece of the sacred jewel shard and if a demon has one, his or her powers increase. Like Koga have faster speeds and run like a dust devil, Kohaku (my personal favorite character of the series) who died by arrows, but stays alive by relying on a sacred jewel piece on his back or neck (it inconsitantly changes) and also his combat skills increase over time compare how he started, and we have Sesshomaru and Kikyo, Sesshomaru is InuYasha’s older half-brother and he has perform many power magical feats and Kikyo is a magical healer who pinned InuYasha to a tree with a sacred (magical) arrow and give Kohaku one more life without relying on a sacred jewel.


Dragon Ball series


The Dragon Ball is about Goku and his allies trying to find seven magical orange glass balls called Dragon Balls to make wishes before villains find them for their evil purposes, like wish immorality and then uses it to take over the universe. Sometimes they don’t use that plot and just focus on bringing down the villains.

The main character starts off as a young boy from another planet came to earth in the intention of destroying and enslaving Earth. However, a young elderly man named Grandpa Gohan found him, Goku hit his head and losing his memory on his past and what he is suppose to do, and then Grandpa Gohan raise Goku as his own. One night, Goku is a Saiyan and if the look a a full moon, they become a monstrous monkey and Goku accidentally killed Grandpa Gohan.

For Goku’s “magical” powers, in the story they call it “Ki” or energy to us. Goku learned the famous Kamehameha Wave.



Other Dragon Ball characters like Gohan, Krillin, and Master Roshi have used the Kamehameha Wave as it is Master Roshi that taught it to Goku and Gohan used it to finish off Cell. Anyway let see those Kamehameha Wave…

Speaking of many other character have their own special attacks like Piccolo’s Masako and Special Beam Cannon.





Sailor Moon is a cartoon Power Rangers show for girls, but the Bogside Artists have denied the existence of the Power Rangers franchise since they called me a liar and using misinformation about a show called Power Rangers ever existing and I lied about the show having numerous villains, cast, magical uses, and etc. They also accused me deluded for even believing that there were shows called Sailor Moon or Power Rangers, those are just more examples on how majorly ignorant and stupid the Bogside Artists are. Watching AND researching the existing of Power Rangers and Sailor Moon are not very hard, elementary school students could do it. I know many of my former fellow students from the 1st to 5th grade have done it, and we had 96-99 AOL or Netscape Navigator for crying out loud. If you can’t do something that any American elementary schooler could easily do then you suck at life in general.

Anyway back to Sailor Moon’s magical feats, the main Sailor Moon and her companions the Sailor Scouts do performs magical feats like Sailor Mercury’s bubble attacks that could send a thick mist for enemies to unable to see, Sailor Mars’ fire attacks, Sailor Jupiter’s thunder and lightning attacks, and Sailor Venus’ beam attacks. Also, lastly Sailor Moon’s attacks that finishes off the villains.

Sometimes the Sailor Scouts uses special attacks, but on very rare occasions.

Don’t expect the Bogiside Artists to either notice or acknowledge any of these videos or evidence due to their high level of cowardice and arrogance. Also don’t expect them for you to notice the videos, because they are ignorant and they have no respect for your intelligence to even notice these videos or research the existence of Sailor Moon since it is all over the internet.



What could I say about Pokemon that nobody doesn’t know about, it is about animal like creatures known as Pokemon have special attacks like lightning, earthquakes, fire, water gun, and etc. However, the Bogside Artists called me deluded for claiming that I have seen or believing the existence of the Pokemon show, let alone the show having a lot of “similar” idea that Harry Potter and Travel’s with Li Po has.

Let’s take a look at Ash Ketchum’s Pikachu’s attacks, even though the Bogside Artists would likely to ignore it like true and typical cowards like they always do.

Let’s not forget that Pokemon is known for their video games… I will have JWittz explain some of the attacks.

Again, don’t count on the Bogside Artists to notice or acknowledge the video as evidence due to their arrogance, ignorance, cowardice, and conformation bias that Rowling plagiarized from them and Rowling lied to us about Pokemon (as precedents) and they are in the belief that no one watched or heard of Pokemon… or they would accused them as delusional.



Card Captor Sakura is about a 10 year old Japanese girl wandered into her father’s library and then found a magical book. When she opened it, it released 52 magical cards (called Clow Cards) with their own type of magic like water, wind, shadow, erase, and etc. It is up to Sakura and her friends to capture all 52 cards before they wreak havoc upon the world.

The Clow Cards and the magical figures is where most of the magical feats come from, especially Sakura summoning a Clow Card like creating wind or Syaoran Li having Chinese magical talismans that can create fire or lightning. However, the Bogside Artists fired back at me that I deluded Card Captor Sakura and it is all a lie by J.K. Rowing. How could I believe in a lie by J.K. Rowling or her “associate” by watching Card Captor Sakura?

Anyway, here is an image of all 52 cards…




In Outlaw Star has the “magic” being performed by the villains when chanting Tao Magic which can get annoying and old petty fast. I can easily say that one of the themes of this story is it is technology vs. magic as technology being on the good side while magic being on the bad side.

Also you get magic like this…



Pokemon has a lot of performed magical feats, mostly from the Pokemon like they could do flamethrower, thunder bolt, hyper beam, psychic, and etc.

Again, the Bogside Artists would likely to ignore the evidence provided by the video (done by Watch Mojo) and say that I deluded these “magical feats” and the rest of Pokemon like true and typical ignorant cowards. It doesn’t take a genius to watch, analyze, or research everything about Pokemon and find out enough to know about Pokemon as any seven year olds have done it since Pokemon came on the air to the United States, especially other shows that has “performed magical feats” ideas scattered all across the series. That shows the Bogside Artists combine do not have any basic critical thinking skills compare to an average seven year olds.




Water… Earth… Fire…. Air…

Avatar: the Last Airbender has a lot of magical feat and if you watched the show, you can’t miss them. Their are four types of human races that can bend a certain element… water, earth, fire, and air, but they can bend one element at a time and they are stuck with that element till death. They are called [insert element here] benders. Except one, who can bend all four elements and that person is the Avatar.


Don’t expect the Bogside Artists to notice any evidence I provided for my arguments or they might cowardly ignore them as they always have. Many of Anime and other fictional stories of many mediums have both Cast of Series Introduced and Performs Magical Feat elements like Harry Potter and the Travels with Li Po even though that the Bogside Artists have denied this and will call anyone delusional if they see this fact or watched any of the examples that I’d used. That is just more examples of the Bogside Artists cowardly arrogance and they think that their bias and close-minded words are facts instead of bias opinions. Mine on the other hand are not just words, but back up by actual events and proven statements.

Now on to the next “stolen idea”…

Things that the Bogside Artists are pathetically scared off…












I have been trying to use evidence and examples that JK Rowling did not plagiarized “Willy the Wizard” or the Bogside Artists’ “Travels with Li Po”, by using other works that used the same ideas which are the hero relying on friends and allies (like Star Wars, Power Rangers, and millions of other examples), a story using magical or mystical powers, and etc.

However the Bogside Artists say that I deluded all the works that I used as examples (as if they don’t exist) and they tend to ignore the examples that I provided, such as sources, pictures, videos, and links. That is because they are scared of them.

So let’s see what they are pathetically scared off…

Ash Ketchum


One of the works that I used is Pokemon, but sadly the Bogside Artists say I deluded Pokemon and act if nobody seen or heard of Pokemon as it does not exist. They also avoid acknowledging I ever mentioned Ash Ketchum or anything Pokemon related as if they are scared of Ash Ketchum.

I believe that every Pokemon fan knows that without Ash’s Pokemons, he is harmless than a fly even when he tries to physically fight you so how can you be scared of someone like Ash Ketchum. Maybe they are so pathetic that maybe Ash Ketchum beat their candy asses. Why else the Bogside Artists are so scared of him that they wouldn’t even try to acknowledge him, acknowledge that I have mention him or related to him, or bother to look him up even I provided Ash Ketchum related to them on a silver platter.

WWE STYLE FIGHT BRAWL: Ash Ketchum vs. Bogside Artists (William Kelly, Thomas Kelly, and Kevin Hasson).

In this corner, weighing 95lbs… Ash Ketchum. In the other corner is the team of the Bogside Artists. The first one is William Kelly which I think he is pissing in his pants, Tom Kelly who is hiding under a blanket, and Kevin Hasson who is crying in fear.

*ref starts the match*

Then oohhh…. Ash Ketchum just knocked out Hasson to a coma within one punch, William Kelly is running away to his mommy, and Ash Ketchum is putting Tom Kelly in an ankle lock and he is crying for his mommy. Tom is tapping out and crying for his mommy like a little bitch.

*match ends and Ash declares the winner*

How does three grown men lose a fight to one little boy?

Why else they refuse to acknowledge Ash Ketchum as if they are very scared of him.

Well it is proven time and time again that the Bogside Artists fear Ash Ketchum since they avoid any acknowledgment of Ash Ketchum or Pokemon related like cowards.

Serena/Sailor Moon



The Bogside Artists (William Kelly in particular) are also scared of Sailor Moon since they avoid any acknowledgement of Sailor Moon that I have made. I have uploaded pictures and videos on my blog based on Sailor Moon, but the Bogside Artists chooses to ignore them like cowards and say that I deluded Sailor Moon as well other people that watched or heard of Sailor Moon. So them pretending that Sailor Moon never existed, I’d used Sailor Moon as example and providing any evidence from Sailor Moon, and refusing to research any of my evidence and proof involving Sailor Moon show that they are scared of Sailor Moon.

Anyone that saw and is a fan of Sailor Moon know that without her powers, Serena is harmless than Ash Ketchum could ever be… which is pathetic for a person who is scared of her and can lose a brawl fight against her… let alone three people. What happened? Did Serena slapped their mothers into a coma?

WWE STYLE MATCH: SERENA (without her powers) vs. THE BOGSIDE ARTISTS in a Handicap Match.

*bell rings*

Serena slaps William Kelly in the face and now he is crying like a baby. Serena kicks Thomas Kelly in the stomach and then she kicks him in the face and knocking him into a 4 month coma. Then Kevin Hasson is curling up in the corner and crying out “please don’t hit me”. Then Serena lunges at Kevin and then missile kick Kevin in the face. 

Serena is the winner. Now the Bogside Artists have lost a 3 on 1 fight against Ash Ketchum and Serena (without powers or pokemon to rely on). 

Why else the Bogside Artists are so frightened of Ash Ketchum and Sailor Moon to the point they avoid anything the do with Ash Ketchum, Pokemon, or Sailor Moon?

I bet the Bogside Artists are so pathetically weak that Kim Kardashian could take all three of them on and beat the shit out of them with both hands tied behind her back.

Jim Hawking (Outlaw Star)


Jim Hawking may not be as known as Ash Ketchum or Sailor Moon, but the Anime fans does know about Jim Hawking and he has very little hand to hand combat skills and he would never win a fight against three grown men, unless it is the Bogside Artists and they fear Jim Hawking to a high degree.

I have been using Jim Hawking as an example that JK Rowling is not a plagiarists since one of the “stolen ideas” that the main protagonist gets help from friends and allies… Jim is that idea. However the Bogside Artists ignore the fact that I used Jim Hawking as an example to prove my theory right and they also refuse any acknowledgment that I’ve mentioned Jim Hawking entirely like cowards. Why do they avoid anything acknowledgment of Jim Hawking and say I deluded watching Jim Hawking without doing any research that Jim Hawking is on a show/story called Outlaw Star (another show they claimed that I deluded too along as other Anime fans). Researching Outlaw Star or Jim Hawking is not that difficult and a 4th grader could easily do it within 30 seconds. The Bogside Artists refuse to do some basic research that Jim Hawking is a real  fictional character of a show/story show that they are more scared of Jim Hawking than acrophobic are afraid of heights.

WWE STYLE MATCH: Jim Hawking vs. the Bogside Artists in a 3 on 1 handicap match

*bell rings*

 Thomas Kelly and Kevin Hasson are running away crying and whimpering in fear while Jim grabs the fleeing William Kelly. Jim punches William Kelly in the face giving him a broken nose and then throw him back in the ring. Then Jim Hawking uses HHH’s pedigree on William Kelly and William Kelly is knocked out. Jim Hawking wins by KO. 

This is an example of Jim Hawking could do to the Bogside Artists. Jim Hawking would be Triple H and the Bogside Artists would be Mark Henry.

This is an example of Jim Hawking could do to the Bogside Artists. Jim Hawking would be Triple H and the Bogside Artists would be Mark Henry.

Why else the Bogside Artists cowers from Jim Hawking? Three grown men couldn’t even man up against one little kid.

Sakura Kinomoto/Card Captor Sakura


Sakura Kinomoto is a 10 year old typical Japanese school girl. One day she entered her father’s library and then she opens a book that released 52 magical cards. Now she must retrieve the cards back before they destroy the world. However the Bogside Artists denies all this and they avoid any acknowledgment to Sakura Kinomoto or Card Captor Sakura due to the fact they are scared of this girl, why else they’ve avoid my acknowledgments and sources relating to Sakura or Card Captor Sakura?

Without her powers, she is beyond powerless in a fight but somehow the Bogside Artists are still completely scared of Sakura like if she is the boogyman. Maybe another reason the Bogside Artists are so scared of her that she could beat the living daylights out of them despite she is powerless in a fight without her powers.

WWE STYLE MATCH: Sakura Kinomoto vs. Bogside Artists (Thomas Kelly, William Kelly, and Kevin Hasson) in a 3 on 1 handicap match.

*bell rings*

Sakura throws a little girly on William Kelly in the face and he is knocked to another coma. Then Thomas Kelly and Kevin Hasson climbs out of the ring and then they run away and crying for their mommy. 

Since William Kelly is out for the count and Thomas Kelly and Kevin Hasson ran away from the match… Sakura Kinomoto is declared the winner. 

Sakura does not get mad easily so it is one thing to have her to get her piss off to physically hurt you, but to the point that losing to her in a fight or/and running away from her like a scared little bitch goes beyond being pathetic.


They also would ignore any images, videos, and evidence that backs up my arguments like cowards and claim that I deluded these Anime shows as if it is impossible to watch Anime shows, let alone being an Anime fan, buying Anime products, and etc. Maybe it is impossible for them due to their obvious unbelievably lack of development and knowledge of the human world, but it does not mean it is impossible for everyone else. From all the millions of Anime fans and conventions show that I never deluded these precedents and Anime. However, they believe they speak for everyone and believe that no people could watch Anime to witness that many Anime/Manga stories have a lot of similar ideas and themes that the Bogside Artists claim that Rowling stole from them. They even call me a liar about Power Rangers and Star Wars having villains, using magical feats, having a cast and etc. despite how many people would beg to differ, that is who shallow and narrow minded on people, especially around fiction entertainment.

He would call anyone who watched or know about Power Rangers, Anime, Manga, or Star Wars delusional as again it is impossible to them for anyone watching Anime because so many Anime series have similar ideas and themes that the Bogiside Artists claim that Rowling plagiarized from them.

The Bogside Artists accused Harry Potter author JK Rowling of plagiarizing their story “Travels with Li Po” The Bogside Artists say that Harry Potter and Travels with Li Po have a lot of similar ideas as well as any other stories and mediums like Anime, Manga, Star Wars, Power Rangers, DC and Marvel Comics, and etc. One of those “similar” and “stolen” ideas is CAST OF SERIES INTRODUCED where a story have a bunch of main and major secondary characters. I see this “stolen” idea happen in countless and countless other stories and mediums but the Bogside Artists somehow disagree since they call me a liar and delusional when I claim to I see one. I will go through various stories and mediums like Anime/Manga, Star Wars, Power Rangers one by one and give my insights and opinions of the cast of characters of each story or medium that I mention on this blog. I will not go through all stories and mediums since there are just too many so I will go through the ones that I have personally love and watched. Also I will stick to TV show for now.

Will won’t go through the villains since I will save them for another blog.




Inuyasha is my favorite Anime series and sadly having a favorite Anime series seems impossible to the Bogside Artists’ eyes. It has a good story with multiple characters with many of them with good story arcs (except for Shippo but I will get to that when I talk about him).

The series is about a half-human and half-demon dog named InuYasha and his band finding the pieces of the mystical and powerful shattered jewel shard before the main villain Naraku gets them or it will be the end of the world.



InuYasha is the story’s main protagonist and character just like Harry Potter in his story. Also like Harry Inuyasha can perform mystical and magical powers (in Inuyasha’s case, demonic powers).

InuYasha starts out as a “bad guy” since he has a demon side in him and he steals the Shikon Jewel and then his lover Kikyo fires a arrow into the tree causing them to hate each other for each other’s “betrayal. However the betrayal was done by manipulation and lies by the main villain of the story Naraku.

The lead female of the story, Kagome (who is the reincarnation of Kikyo) pulls the arrow out to help fight the Centipede Demon Monster. InuYasha would turn on Kagome but magical beads place on InuYasha would force InuYasha hurtfully to the grown when she says “sit”. InuYasha would be a good guy by heart and fights off a bunch of bad buys and would not harm another human being unless provoked. InuYasha would eventually fall in love with Kagome despite their stubbornness and arguments.

He would get his father’s most powerful sword Tessaiga to help him to fight numerous demons and enemies. He also have inhuman strength and invulnerability like many demons but since InuYasha is half demon he loses his powers on the night of the new moon (which means he loses his powers for one full night per month).

InuYasha’s personality is describe as hot headed, arrogant, and does not back down from a fight and prone to violence if he’s annoyed too much like he often hits Shippo.

For me personally I like Inuyasha since it is a main character starting out as a villain character and then work his way to be a good guy and fight Naraku once and for all.

Inuyasha parallels Harry Potter by being a boy (even though InuYasha is physically 15 years old and chronically 200+ years old while Harry started at 10) can travel two worlds or time and having magical powers and a war against a evil villain with a personal past.



Kagome is the reincarnation of the well respected and powerful priestess Kikyo and reborn into our modern day era. On her fifteenth birthday she enters her family’s well and carrying a Shikon Jewel in her body when a centipede demon drags her into the well and brings her to the medieval 15th century Japan.

Since Kagome is the one who could sense the Shikon Jewel (one time by Sango due to a writing mistake) see agree to help InuYasha to find the Shikon jewels.

Despite InuYasha and Kagome getting off a rocky start and still having constant arguments on petty things like cooking but she eventually falls in love with InuYasha.

Like many leading female characters she is the damsel in distress and she gets captured on a constant bases and cause more problems for our heroes.

I guess he could be compared to Hermione Grangers since they are both the main female characters and they are afraid of failure of school, the only difference is that Hermione does perfect in school while Kagome comically fails her tests and exams.



Miroku is one of the main characters to the story. Miroku is an 18-year-old Japanese Monk that is traveling to find Naraku because he placed a curse on his grandfather and the curse will be passed on to child to child until Naraku is defeated once and for all.

Miroku meets InuYasha and Kagome when he sees them having a jewel shard, “rescue” Kagome, and try to kill InuYasha in the fight for the Shikon Jewel until Kagome gets in the path of his Wind Tunnel.  He explains that he is cured with the Wind Tunnel that could suck anything its path and it will get bigger to the point it could suck Miroku and killing him.

Miroku is considered poised, calm, and has great wisdom. His faults is that he can be greedy, deceiving to get what he wants, and is a heavy womanizer. He eventually falls with Sango but like InuYasha and Kagome, his relationship with Sango has its faults like Miroku sexually harassing her or him flirting with other woman which usually results her hitting him.



Sango is a demon slayer of a small village and the daughter of the village leader until Naraku forces his little brother Kohaku to kill her father and demon slayer comrades.

Sango’s story arc is to rescue Kohaku from Naraku’s grasp and figuring out what would be the best solution of saving Kohaku.

Sango is kind, caring, and patient, but she has her limits with her kindness and patience especially with Miroku’s antics around her.

I like Sango, she isn’t the typical damsel in distress (even though she has her moments) and willing to accept the consequences of her choices especially when it comes to Kohaku. I am glad to say she is my second fictional female character and I will get to my first in a moment.



What to say about Shippo??? HE SUCKS!

He has no reason to go after Naraku except it is the right thing to do. He tags along for no apparent reason and he provides nothing to the overall story or fights. OK, he had a help in Sesshomaru’s development but other than that he pretty much useless for anything else. He has no arc to the story other than the Thunder Brother story and has no character development. Heck I believe Kagome’s little brother was more developed that Shippo and how much Souta was in the series again?



Sesshomaru is bad ass.

He is InuYasha’s half older brother. Sesshomaru started out as a villain but worked his way to be the good guy after his relationships with other human and especially with Rin. Sesshomaru competed and win the Tessaiga but the sword is inherited to InuYasha and he gets the Tenseiga that cannot harm any living beings (much to his dismay). If he does touch the Tessaiga, it will shock him.

Sesshomaru is calm and proper but does have major arrogance and does not like to show any weakness.

He is travel by Jaken and A-un and then Rin and Kohaku later on.

His motivations to go after Naraku is unclear but he did applied that he tricked him and now has a personal grudge against Naraku but fans speculate there might be a bigger reason than that.



Kohaku is my favorite character of the story even though the Bogside Artists think having a favorite character is not possible, especially with Anime.

Kohaku started as a timid and cowardly 11 year old boy who is about to go in his first demon slayer mission. However Naraku was able to get a hold of Kohaku and made him kill his father and his demon slayer comrades and then Kohaku is killed by arrows. Naraku revives him by giving him a jewel shard on his back. Naraku uses Kohaku to use Sango’s emotions against her and make him do murderous and evil deeds. Also Naraku erased Kohaku’s memory but slowly his memory comes back and then he fully remembers everything and breaking Naraku’s mind spell. Kikyo was able to give him another life without the help of the jewel shard.

Kohaku is a well character who started out as timid and cowardly but then he becomes very brave, selfless, and willing to put his life down for the sake of others. Also he barely could use his weapon Kusarigama but then he is able to take on multiple demons at once.

To me he is the closest to Ron Weasley but I like Kohaku a lot better and he is one of my top ten favorite fictional characters of all time even though that may seem impossible for the Bogside Artists for anyone (especially me) to have a favorite and nostalgic character.

Since I am a Kohaku fan, here is a AMV on Kohaku…



Kikyo becomes InuYaha’s current/former lover and becomes a foil between InuYasha and Kagome.

Kikyo is a powerful priestess and the protector of the Shikon Jewel. She tried to kill InuYasha for trying to take the Shikon Jewel but when he saved her little sister Kaede, She would eventually fall in love with Inuyasha until Naraku tricks them to turn against each other. Kikyo dies after firing an arrow at InuYasha and pinning him to a tree. Before she dies she had Kaede to burn her body with the Shikon Jewel.

Kikyo is resurrected by a dark priestess and still harbors hatred and coldness for InuYasha. However after finding out that Naraku turned them against each other her love for InuYasha returns. However int he end Naraku finally kills Kikyo but her hatred for InuYasha is no more and is able to rest in peace.



Koga is a Wolf Demon and InuYasha’s love rival for Kagome even though Kagome does not return any romantic feelings for Koga. However he made a promise to a female Wolf demon Ayame that he will marry her and that is what he end up doing. I find that kind of creepy where a 15 year old (physically) proposing to a little girl. Is this a trait within wolves? It happened when Jacob imprinted on Renesmee in Twilight and it happened here so I am guessing much older male wolves fall in live with much younger female wolves.

Like Sesshomaru he begins as a villain as he sends his wolf pack to attack and kill villagers, one of them being Rin. He captures Kagome and eventually falls in love with her so he become a good guy and orders his pack to never attack humans again or risk Kagome never forgiving him. Naraku ends up slaughtering most of his pack and then Koga vows to defeat Naraku to avenge his tribe.

His powers is super speed due to having two jewel shards on his legs to give him more power.

Like InuYasha he has a huge ego and easy to temper.



Rin is a 8 year old girl who lost her parents to a bandit raid so she lives with another village who physically abuse her. Rin became traumatize so she became a mute. She finds a wounded Sesshomaru in the woods and she brings food to her. After she is killed by Koga’s wolves she is revived by Sesshomaru’s Tenseiga and then she becomes one of Sesshomaru’s companions. Now she is able to talk… non-stop.

Some fans speculate that Rin is a reincarnation of Kikyo and then pass it along to Kagome. Also there are some fans to ship Kohaku and Rin.

First thing to get out of way that I hate the opening theme song. There is no energy or theme to it. It gets distracting and I can’t even understand half of the lyrics.

Rurouni Kenshin is about a samurai assassin that killed so many people. Then one day he accidentally killed his wife so he vowed to protect the innocent and never kill again.

He travels to Tokyo where someone impersonating as Kenshin Himura the Battosai and Kaoru attacks Kenshin believing he is the murderer, but finding out that Kenshin’s sword has the blade reverse so only the flat side of the blade can hit people. After defeating the fake Battosai, Kenshin stays with Kaoru to help fight corruption and evil in Tokyo and Japan. Along the way he meets with Yahiko Myojin, Sanosuke Sagara, and many other characters (but somehow the Bogside Artists denies any of this ever happened and does not believe that NOBODY watched or read Rurouni Kenshin to know this is true).

Let’s get to the characters…

Kenshin Himura


Kenshin Himura was known as a legendary and infamous assassin with unmatched and extraordinary swordsmanship skills. He came to Tokyo where he meets Kaoru Kamiya and she finds out that he is the legendary Battosai the man slayer. Kaoru invites Kenshin to stay with him.

Later Kenshin meets numerous allies like Yahiko Myojin and Sanosuke Sagara while some deadly enemies like Shishio Makato and Yukishiro Enishi. Some enemies turn to allies like Shinomori Aoshi and Saito Hajime. He would eventually fall in love with Kaoru, marry her and then have a son named Kenji.

Kenshin does not go through any major character development since he stays a calm demeanor unless someone pushes to his breaking point but keeps the mentality to never to kill another life but there are some moments that he came close. He is kind of Batman, he has no superpowers and must rely on his skills and smarts to survive each battle and protect his friends from harm without killing anyone. I guess it is safe to say that he is the Batman of Japan in the 19th century.

Kaoru Kamiya


Like any other main female character, she is the love interest for the main lead character Kenshin.

Kaoru is the head master of the Kamiya Kasshin Dojo. She had multiple students until the fake Battosai was using the Kasshin style to murder people, students quit and stop coming. Then she meets Kenshin where she invites him to live at the dojo.

Despite having a school that teaches to use swords in a post-Samurai era, she is teaching sword techniques that protects people without resorting to kill anyone. She does teach this lesson to Yahiko Myojin and several other students that come and gone.

Of course she falls in love with Kenshin and they become the main couple of the story where they get married and have a child named Kenji.

Yahiko Myojin


Let me say this off the bat, I LOVE YAHIKO MYOJIN!. He is not only my favorite character in Rurouni Kenshin but he is my favorite ANIME/MANGA character. Sadly the Bogside Artists act like it is impossible to have a favorite fictional character, especially an Anime character.

Yahiko is from a Samurai family. An orphaned Yahiko Myojin was pickpocketing for the Yakuza because they paid her mother’s medical bills until she died from an unknown illness then Yahiko has to pay them back. After being rescued by Kenshin and Kaoru, Yahiko becomes a student at the Kamiya Dojo to learn swordsmanship training from Kaoru. Yahiko starts off as cocky, arrogant, and has a lot of pride but his skills develop to back up his words and is willing to put his own life at risk for the sake of others like risking his own life for a little boy against Kujiranami Hyōgo. He is one of the most developed characters of the series by being a bratty kid with almost no skills and now he become one of the most formidable fighters of Japan.

Yahiko is like Robin and maybe better than Robin since Yahiko had to start from scratch and Yahiko does not have any fancy gadgets to help him out of a funk and Yahiko needs to rely on his smarts and skills a lot more.

Also Yahiko is one of my Storm Fighter characters and the leader of the team.


Sanosuke Sagara


Sanosuke Sagara is Kenshin’s best friend and most reliable ally. He is like Ron Weasley of the story except Sanosuke is more confident (sometimes over confident), strong, and reckless who is looking for any kind of danger instead of avoiding it.

When Sanosuke was a young boy Sanosuke was a member of the Sekiho Army. He respects his captain Sagara Sozo and once his captain and army was betrayed by the revolutionary government due to financial problems, his captain and most of his Sehiko Army were killed and executed. After his captain’s death, he inherits “Sagara” to his last name.

Years later he become an assassin for hire when he was hired by Gohei to kill Kenshin and then lost. Then he becomes Kenshin’s right hand man and most trusted ally.





Sailor Moon is considered to be the gateway of Anime to North American audience. It one of the first Anime shows that has been distributed for North American audience and so many people were intrigued by it, for girls and boys. Like it or not this is show that really cemented Anime for North American audience. I know there are Voltron, Speed Racer, and Astro Boy but despite being a huge success it still did not cemented Anime until Sailor Moon arrive and then Pokemon (I will get to Pokemon later).

Serena Tsukino (Sailor Moon)


Serena Tsukino (or Usagi in the original Japanese version) is the former moon princess of the Moon Kingdom when the evil Negaverse attack the Moon, forcing Queen Serenity to have her daughter and the four sailor scouts to be reborn in the future so they can fight the evil Negaverse once again.

Serena is a typical school girl in Tokyo, Japan who does poorly at school, very dimwitted, always hungry, and a bit lazy. When one of the guardian’s Luna chooses her to be Sailor Moon. She defeat bad guy after bad guy and then villain after villain. She at first was scared and reluctant in early of the series but later she goes into battle without hesitant.

Later they discover that she is the moon princess and is the permanent leader of the Sailor Scouts.

Amy (Sailor Mercury)


Sailor Mercury or Amy is considered the brains of the group. She is a heavy bookworm, does almost perfect in her class, and always taking extra classes. She is kind of like Hermione without her stuck up personality.

Sailor Mercury is the second Sailor Scout joining the team after Serena and Luna suspect her as a Negaverse agent but it turns out that she is Sailor Mercury.

She does not have a lot of character development, she is the brainy nerd but does not rub in people’s faces and she will give her life for Serena, her friends, and the innocents alike. At one point she was willing abandon her friends and duty to study medicine but she realizes that she is abandon her friends who need her and then she postpone her time to study medicine.

Rei (Sailor Mars)


Sailor Mars works as a Shinto priestess with a short temper, ambitious, and always get into arguments with Serena.

Sailor Mars is the second in command and in the beginning tenure she tries to overthrow Serena as leader so she could be the leader, even to the point she refuses to help Serena, Molly, and Melvin from danger (and forcing Amy to not help too) in protest. I guess Serena is suppose to be the main hero and having Rei to be more selfish than Serena would make Rei incapable to be the leader of the Sailor Scouts. Also there was an episode where Rei was making bad decisions as a leader when Serena was being chocked to death while Rei is hesitating what to do and Serena almost died as a result. She does get a lot better even though Serena and Rei still get into constant arguments.

When Sailor Uranus and Sailor Neptune belittles Serena as a Sailor Scout and the leader for saving a possessed Sailor Scout instead of taking the easy way out, by killing her Rei came to Serena’s defense.


Lita (Sailor Jupiter)


Lita (Sailor Jupiter) is the fourth member of the Sailor Scouts and is the toughest and physically the strongest member of the Sailor Scouts.

Lita is loyal, hot-blooded, full of energy, boy crazy, and someone you don’t want to screw with. Lita is trained in the martial arts (even though she use her skills rarely) and she is physically the strongest as she once lift a monster over her head and this is without her powers. Like Amy, she doesn’t have a way of a lot of character development either. She is the same from start to finish.

Mina (Sailor Venus)


Sailor Venus is favorite character. Like Serena she is a regular ditzy blonde, she loves the mall, very friendly, many times late for school, and is the most boy crazy out of the entire group.

She becomes the last official sailor scout to join the team until Rini and the Outer Sailor Scouts (despite Sailor Jupiter being considered a “Inner” Sailor Scout and Jupiter is a outer planet).

She became a Sailor Scout before the other four as Sailor V by becoming a vigilante in England before joining the Sailor Scouts and why it took so long to go to Japan and join the team is anyone’s guess. She got her powers from a white male cat named Artemis and he introduced her to the other sailor scouts when they are about to be crushed to death by Malechite and then Sailor Venus saved both the Sailor Scouts and Tuxedo Mask.

What is interesting there is an unaired episode in the United States where the Negaverse finds out her true identity. At another point where she almost blow her cover by saying “is this the Sailor Scout meeting”, what would happen if she was the wrong place and said that out loud?

Darien/Tuxedo Mask


Tuxedo Mask/Darien is the love interest of the main character and protagonist, Sailor Moon. At first Serena and Darien hate each other for unknown reasons sine Darien always call her “meatball head” due to her hairstyle. Once Darien realizes that Serena is Sailor Moon and the Moon Princess they fall in love and became an official couple.

According to TV Troupes he is considered as the “Sixth Ranger” to the team. At first the identity of Darien and Tuxedo Mask didn’t know each other’s identity until Tuxedo Mask takes on of the Rainbow Crystals and revealing that Darien is Tuxedo Mask. The Negaverse captures him, brainwashes him, and then turn them against the Sailor Scouts although his mentality and memory of his alliance are still there so motivation other than being brainwash is still there. Serena is able to regain his memory back but still has no memory of his previous life, Serena, or being Tuxedo Mask until the end of the Cardian Saga.

Darien is having dreams of the future where Serena gets hurt for being with her so he distance himself from Serena but they get back together when Serena sees the future and willing to take the risk. Then after the Dark Moon Kingdom Saga he has no character arc after that. He does go to America to go to college but he is absent most of that time.

Rini/Sailor Mini Moon


What can I say about Rini? SHE’S A BITCH.

She goes back and time to find the Silver Imperial Crystal where she lives with Serena’s family (who ironically and technically are her family). She is targeted by the Dark Moon Force so they could break the barrier that protects Crystal Tokyo. In her first outing she annoys and antagonizes people for shallow and vague reasons (mostly Serena). When Amy was about to go away, she antagonize the Sailor Scout’s going away present without knowing what it is and at one point poisons them.

She becomes the evil Wicked Lady but then she becomes Sailor Mini Moon and to be trained by the Sailor Scouts.

Sailor Uranus and Sailor Neptune


Sailor Neptune (Michelle in civilian form) was introduced in the Infinity Arc (or the Heart Snatchers Arc). She and her cousin/lesbian lover Sailor Uranus were set to find three mystical items that are hidden in three human hearts.

At the start of her tenure, she prefers to work independently with her partner (yes, even romantically) Sailor Uranus from the other Sailor Scouts and does not share the morals is to find the right way out instead of the easy way. Heck at one point when Sailor Moon made the right way by finding a way to save Sailor Saturn (when she was under an evil spell) instead of killing her because it was the easy way, they berate her and try to take her powers away. She does learn the errors of their ways since the other Sailor Scouts would follow Sailor Moon to do the right thing instead of the easy thing.


Just like Sailor Neptune, Sailor Uranus (Amara) was introduced at the beginning in the Heart Snatcher’s arc with her partner/cousin Michelle.

She did stand out more than her cousin/lover, she looks like a male so many characters mistakes her as a male.

She also chooses to be independent from the other Sailor Scouts and fight along with her partner. She believes she and Michelle are superior than the other Sailor Scouts and chooses to do the easy or selfish thing than the right thing, like the other Sailor Scouts… especially Sailor Moon. However Sailor Moon shows them the error of their ways and becomes an ally to Sailor Moon.

Sailor Pluto/Trista


Sailor Pluto was introduced when the Sailor Scouts made contact with her by Rini’s Luna Ball when she is being chased through Rini’s dream and then Sailor Pluto have the Sailor Scouts to enter Rini’s dream to save her.

She was seen again when the Sailor Scouts approach the Gate Through Time, Sailor Pluto was guarding the gate and tries to attack and kill Sailor Moon until Rini saves her and prevents Sailor Pluto from attacking her. She sends them to the future to save Crystal Tokyo. In the Heart Snatchers arc, she saves Sailor Neptune and Sailor Uranus when it was revealed that they hold the hearts that they were looking for. When it came to the Messiah situation if that they should save Sailor Saturn or go the easy route by killing her. Unlike Sailor Neptune and Sailor Uranus, she was easier to pursue to take the right way instead of the easy way and Sailor Pluto did not try to overthrow Sailor Moon off of her leadership all because of she didn’t take the easy way out.



First off I will be covering only Dragon Ball Z since many of the characters translate from Dragon Ball and I really don’t want to get into GT and please don’t make me to go over the characters in that god awful live action movie Dragon Ball Evolution.

Son Goku


Goku serves the story’s main hero and protagonist. Goku is from the planet Vegeta and Goku was sent to Earth to destroy and conquer however Grandpa Gohan found him and try to take him in as his adopted son. Goku was wild and uncontrollable but he fell off a cliff, hit his head and forget his past, and then becomes a loving and happy boy.

One night in a full moon, he transforms into a large giant monkey and accidentally killed Grandpa Gohan. Goku lived alone for a while until Bulma finds him while she was trying to steal and then attempt to bribe for Goku’s four star ball. Then Goku went on numerous fight and adventures leading up to DBZ.

Goku marries Chi Chi and they have a son named Gohan. Goku and Gohan fight numerous villains along with Piccalo, Krillin, and many others but I will get to that later.

 The story mainly is on Goku and then it switches to Gohan to the lead character for a while and then back to Goku which it felt forced and rushed.

Goku morals is good and unintentionally bad. The Good is that he is willing to put everything on the line for himself to save others and see the good in people whenever they are lying or not. Some good came put of it like Piccalo and Vegeta or it could be bad like Doctor Gero and Frieza. The bad is that he can be a bad father and husband since he rather train than spending time with his wife and kids.

Son Gohan


Son Gohan is my favorite character (even though it is impossible to the Bogside Artists’ eyes). He represents the young crowd.

Unlike his father he goes to school (but it is unclear that he goes to a school or he his home schooled until he goes to high school) and he is smarter but shy and more prone to hesitate. He is trained by Piccalo and at his first battle, he becomes very cowardly and then Tien and Piccalo are killed as a consequence. This angers Gohan to fight back and now becomes braver in battle.

Gohan becomes the lead hero when the Cell saga when Gohan becomes the hero and the one that kills Cell when Goku dies (again). Gohan was suppose to be the hero again during the Buu Saga but fans of Goku did not want that so the writers have Goku be the hero again so that is why the writing in the Buu Saga felt forced and rushed.

Despite his great character development in DBZ and his character popularity by DBZ and Anime fans, the writers of GT have him take the back seat of the story which is one of the reasons why I HATE GT. Many of the characters suck, the writing for the characters were stupid or/and lazy, and there is no real development (even with the new characters). The reason I hate GT so much it destroys what DBZ build and many of the likable or major characters from DBZ take a back seat for annoying or weak characters like the writers didn’t care or didn’t know what to do with them. In my opinion the better way GT could have been be the next generation. Let Gohan do what Goku did in DBZ… lead, fight to save the world or universe, and show the way of his kid, Pan. Instead we got a villain that sexually harassed his daughter.



Vegeta’s arc got the most development of the entire series. He began as a villain as he wants to take over earth after the death of Raditz and overhearing that Earth has seven mystical balls called the Dragon Balls so Vegeta and his partner Nappa went to earth and killed Yamcha, Chiaotzu, Tien, and Piccolo before Vegeta kills Nappa for his failure.

After Vegeta was badly beaten (by Gohan out of all people) he retreated back to one of Frieza’s base and recover to go to the planet Namek to find the Dragon Balls there. Even though it was Gohan defeated Vegeta at the end, Vegeta gain a rivalry feelings towards Goku and tries to be stronger than him ever since.

He turns ally to Gohan and Krillin since they have a common enemy against Freiza’s forces. Vegeta eventually dies but is revived by the Dragon Balls. Vegeta returns to earth as a defender but it took a while to drop his pride and be a defender for the innocent of Earth.

Here is Vegeta’s most famous quote:

That line became so over the top it became the most memorable quotes in Anime history but sadly the Bogside Artists believe that scene never existed and will call anyone a liar or/and delusional who says otherwise. In fact, they will call anyone who watched DBZ a liar and delusional, especially people who notice they have a cast.




Like Vegeta Piccalo started as a villain and wanted to kill Goku after defeating him so many times.However when Raditz came to earth and kidnapped Gohan, he and Goku defeats Raditz and Piccalo does kill Goku in the process. Before Raditz dies, he tells them that two more Sayians are coming so he trains Gohan to be a fighter. Piccalo and Gohan grew close in result and Piccalo sacrifices himself to save Gohan and enrages Gohan to be a fighter.

His life is connected to the Dragon Balls and if he dies then the power of the dragon balls are turned to stone and become unusable. However there is a second set of dragon balls at his birth planet Namek. When Goku, Gohan, and Krillin retrieved all seven dragon balls they wish Piccalo back to life first so he could return to his home planet and regain the dragon balls back on earth.

Piccalo had great character development and arc. He had to learn to be more compassionate and he learned that through Gohan first and then from the rest of the DBZ characteers but Gohan is still the forefront of Piccalo’s character development even though Piccalo still have  a stern and serious personality. He would still have a competitive streak for example when Goku’s wife Chi Chi forces Goku and Piccalo to learn how to drive and sending them to driving school (despite them knowing how to fly) they get into a drag race and crashed their cars.

I would compare him to Professor Snape even though Piccalo’s development and true characters were much quicker and less subtle.




Krillin is Goku’s best friend. They met when Goku was just starting his training with Master Roshi when Krillin came to him for training. Goku and Krillin started as small rivals due to Goku’s strength and abilities while Krillin has his smarts. Then the two became best friends but they usually not seen together much just after the Cell Saga and even going to the GT series.

Krillin does not have his way of development. He does help Android 18 to become a good guy and falls in love with her but after than Krillin has no story arc except helping either Goku or Gohan depending on who is the hero. He is one of the weaker characters and Krillin knows this since every time he gets involve in a tournament he often worries that he has to fight Goku, Gohan, Future Trunks, Vegeta, or Piccalo. Also it is a common joke by fans that he dies a lot and maybe the dies more times than any character on the show. Maybe Sean Bean could play Krillin since they have so much in common when it comes to dying.




Outlaw Star is one of the more underrated Outlaw Star series. It is a space opera about a outlaw space adventurer named Gene Starwind must find the Galactic Leyline before the evil K Pirates do. Gene is partnered up with his kid sidekick Jim Hawking (hell yeah!) and teams up with a Clan commander Aisha ClanClan, an female assassin Suzuka, and a most of all the female android Melfina.

Gene Starwind


Gene is the main protagonist of Outlaw Star. In the story he is a outlaw space adventurer looking for the Galactic Leyline before the evil Kei Pirates does and while protecting Melfina.

Gene starts off as a mercenary with his 11 year old partner Jim Hawking. They were hired by Hilda to do a job for her but it turns out that the job was to retrieve Melfina and then kill them afterwards. Then Gene disarms her and then they fly off into space while being attacked by enemies. In the first space battles Gene refuses to fight due to a traumatic experience when he witness his father die in a space battle and it was Jim was fighting the enemies until Hilda talks some courage into Gene and then Gene fights the enemies in the rest of the series. After finding the XGP and the death of Hilda, he names the XGP the “Outlaw Star” as a memory of Hilda.

Unfortunately there isn’t much to say about his story arc other than fighting and defeating the enemies.

Gene is describe as reckless and headstrong but he is quick to think on his feet in heated situations and creative in combat.

Jim Hawking


Jim is my favorite character despite he does not have a story arc and the Bogisde Artists believing that it is impossible to have a favorite Anime character.

Jim is considered the brains of the team… like a male Hermione but Jim does not rub his intelligence over people unless Gene’s recklessness and stupidity strains too far. He is the son of a famous computer hacker and it is likely Jim became a hacker because of him. We don’t know anything of Jim’s past except he had parents and they died for some reason. The death of his parents was not explained nor there is no explanation how Gene and Jim met.

Again he has little to no story arc or character development so there isn’t much to say about him.

There is an episode where he dates a girl named Hanmyo but little did he know she is an enemy and he killed her in space without realizing it.

There were good opportunities to give him a story arc like Jim’s parents were killed and the killers are out there that would like to do the same to Jim or have a story arc with Hanmyo by Jim trying to persuade Hanmyo to come to the good side.

Outlaw Star did not do well in Japan as it did in North America and I believe it because Outlaw Star had little character development or character story arc except for Gene. I know Gene is the main character and the main character needs the most of the character development or story arc but you at least take some opportunity to give Jim some development or story arc.

Also Jim is one of my characters in my Storm Fighters fan fiction story.



Melfina is a biological android and she is the key to the Galactic Leyline since there are defenses that could be fatal unless you have Melfina fending off those deadly defenses.

After the death of Hilda she becomes Gene’s love interest and the person the hero must protect.

She has a child like innocents since she knows little about the universe and how it functions like any child developing into the world.

Aisha Clan Clan


Aisha is an alien race of the Ctarl-Ctarl.

Her first mission is to hunt down Hilda but after she disastrously failed she was demoted and relieved from her command. She connects Gene with Hilda and she tries to fight him but Gene escapes and force her to pay the bill of the restaurant. Since she didn’t have any money she is forced to clean the dishes. A few episodes later she does join up with Gene’s crew.

She is the opposite of Jim Hawking in a lot of ways as Jim is mature and smart while Aisaha acts immature and lacks smarts. Speaking of she becomes close to Jim than any of the others however there isn’t anything special beyond that besides fighting the villains. Also we do not see Aisha getting back her command. See what I mean the lack of character arc or development. They do have chances of having character arc or development but the writers seem to be oblivious to them.

Twilight Suzuka


Suzuka is an assassin for hire and she likes to kill her targets at the twilight of the sun. She was hired to kill Fred Lao but the assassination attempt was interfered by Gene Starwind so she turns her targets to him. After Gene defeats Suzuka in combat, Suzuaka joins the Outlaw Star crew.

She does have some story arc as she is able to take revenge on the man who killed her mentor. Other than that here isn’t much to say other than her personality is describe easygoing.



Wolf’s Rain in my opinion is the most underrated Anime. Maybe because it is not received well is that because it is too short compare to most Anime series.

The story is that Earth is slowly dying as civilization for all species including human and animals are close to extinction. However a white wolf Kiba intends to find a hidden power called Paradise that could restore Earth. He leads several other wolves on his quest while fighting several evil and corrupted organizations. The wolves can disguise as humans and interact with other people.



Kiba is the main protagonist of the story. He was raised by a sharman who told him he has a purpose to find Paradise as the Earth is slowly dying. Like Harry Potter Kiba is declared the chosen one. Unlike Harry Potter, Kiba tends to be impulsive and cares less for his friends when it comes to his ultimate goal or protecting Cheza.

Kiba meets Tsume, Hige, and Toboe and the love interest Cheza.

Kiba does find Paradise but Kiba dies soon after. However some centuries year later the Earth restored and Kiba is reborn in human form with no memory of his previous life.



Tsume started out as a thief as we first see him hijack a train with of supplies. However one his bandit members Gehl a young boy fell to his death after stealing another set of supplies. Tsume is kicked out of the group and went with Kiba’s pack as his new group. Tsume is still describe as a loner and put on a tough attitude but deep inside he is a softy. Tsume becomes very close with Toboe.

Tsume is not a believer in Paradise but leaves with the group to get out of the city after numerous tragedies in the city. However Tsume slowly become a believer in Paradise but sadly he does not make it all the way to see the unleash of Paradise. Tsume is reborn in centuries later seeing riding on a motorcycle of a Japanese city.



Hige is a Mexican Wolf and the third wolf in the series. He is describe as laid back and the fun loving person of the party.

There isn’t much to say about him except that his story arc that he is brainwashed by the Jaguara organization into hunting down other wolves. His color has a GPS microchip that have the Jaguara army tracking them down no matter where they are hiding. He gets a love interest with Blue (a half wolf and half dog). Hige and Blue die but Hige is reborn in the rebirth of Earth.



Toboe is my favorite character even though the Bogside Artists called me a liar on this due to their beliefs that it is impossible to have a favorite Anime character.

As the youngest of the group he acts like a pup than a wolf.

He has a high affection for humans since he was raised by a old woman until he accidentally killed her. Toboe make attempt to show kindness and build relationships towards humans such as Quent that shows hatred for wolves. Toboe dies protecting Quent but Toboe is reborn in the rebirth of Earth.

Also Toboe is in my Storm Fighters fan fiction as the most skilled fighter of the team.



Blue is a pet for Quent as it is Quent’s vow to hunt down all wolves since he believed the wolves killed his family when it was actually the Jaguara that killed his family. When Blue found out that she is part wolf and unwilling to hunt down her own kind, she leaves to join Kiba’s group and falls in love with Hige.

Blue dies with the other wolves but to fans’ perspective she is reborn as a cat as the reborn Toboe is picking her up and rescuing her from the rain.



She is a flower maiden of the Lunar Flower. She is the key in opening Paradise so it is up to the wolves to protect her at all cost. She does die but not before she is able to open paradise and cause the rebirth of Earth.

Quent Yaiden


Quent was the sheriff of his town until the Jaguara burned down his village and killed his family, leaving only him and Blue alive. At the time he thought the wolves killed his family thus building his hatred for the wolves and made a vow to hunt them down. Once he learned it was the Jaguara killed his family, he accepted Toboe but they are both killed by Darcia.

Detective Conan

Detective Conan is about a 17 year old private detective Shinichi Kudo be able to solve crimes that the Japanese Police are stumped. However when investigating a case with the Black Organization, he was caught off guard by the Men in Black and was forced to swallow poison that suppose to kill him but it revert back to his 7 year old body to assume the identity of Conan Edogawa and now must solve mysteries as a child while finding a way to get his older body back.

Shinichi Kudo/Conan Edogawa


Conan Edogawa (left)/Shinichi Kudo (right)

 Shinichi Kudo is the son of a famous mystery author Yusaku Kudo and an award winning actress Yukiko Kudo. Shinichi became a huge fan mystery novels, specifically Sherlock Holmes novels. At age 16 Shinichi is starting to solve real life mysterious and criminal cases for the police by seeing the littlest details that could be solid evidence. However one case he got himself knockout when a villain sneak up behind him and hit him in the head. Then instead of shooting him (since it would leave a lot of suspicion and evidence) they give him a poison that suppose to kill him but it shrunk him into a little boy.

Shinichi assumes the identity of Conan Edogawa (taking the names of Arthur CONAN Doyle of the Sherlock Holmes novels and EDOGAWA Rampo). Not to many people know the real identity of Conan Edogawa since the BO believes that he is dead and if they find out he is alive then they will finish the job and might hurt the people he cares about.

Since Conan Edogawa is in the body of a little kid, nobody takes him seriously when Conan is solving cases and finding clues. So he uses the incompetent detective Kogoro Mori to help him solve cases by constantly knocking him out with a wristwatch that has a knockout dart and using a bow tie that could mimic any voice he wants. When Kogoru isn’t around then he uses this tactic with Sonoko (Ran’s best friend) or Dr. Hiroshi Agasa (but he doesn’t need to knock him out). Sometimes he solves in plain sight (when no adults other than the culprit) and once in a while Conan does get credited for solving cases by adults but due to the fact he is in a body of a child, they forget it in a short amount of time. One time in Movie 6 Ran doesn’t believe Conan does know anything about Sherlock Holmes after Conan was able to identify a disguised Professor Moriarty (thus Professor Moriarty calls Conan a young Sherlock Holmes and giving his respect to the boy) and was able to point out specific clues just a few minutes prior and Conan signed up for a Sherlock Holmes conference but because Conan is in a body of a child Ran forgets all of that within no more than five minutes.

 A few adults still listen to him since he proved himself so much to be smart and observant and there are some that know Conan’s real identity like Dr. Agasa. Ran came in a few times to find out Conan is Shinichi but some tactics or some blind luck Ran is mislead in believing that Conan is Shinichi.

I like Conan as he is someone I like to be. Conan is young but smart, observant, talented, and also popular in school (especially with the ladies when numerous girls like him easy (both as Shinichi and Conan)).

Ran Mouri


Ran Mouri is Shinichi’s best friend and possibly girlfriend. After Shinichi is transformed into Conan, she takes Conan in as a surrogate mother or older sister without knowing Conan is Shinichi. Ran develops a great bond and care for Conan, determine to protect him when Conan is in danger and on the brink of getting killed.

She worries for Shinichi as she believes that he is on an assignment elsewhere but Conan calls her as Shinichi (using a bow tie) or at times Ai gives Conan a drug that temporally assume the body and identity of Shinichi.

Ran is a black belt in karate and does uses it to get out of dangerous situations but only that goes so far. She does uses her karate to keep people in line especially with her irresponsible and lazy father. Her father and mother are divorced and she tries to get them back together with little success.

Her personality that she is patient, kind, and nurturing but can get intimidating when angered. She can get reckless and impulsive especially when it comes when someone that she care about is endanger and gets in trouble herself. Usually it is Conan that saves her.

Ran can be naive and is a believer of horror genre like ghost and legendary phantoms.

Kogoro Mouri


The incompetent and dumb Detective Kogoro Mouri is describe as a lousy detective missing obvious clues, forgetting major facts, and jumping to silly conclusions. However when Conan came to the picture and Conan is unable to get the adults to believe him, he knocks Kogoro out with a sleeping dart and uses a bow tie to mimic his voice to bring down the bad guys. However Kogoro can be a good detective but he lacks the effort. When he is a good detective when a case gets personal when a friend is murdered, he is so determined to bring down the murderer and is able to solve the case with little of Conan’s help.

He has a dislike for Conan as he sees him a nuisance to the fact he is a child and he tends to get jealous of Conan outsmarting him by seeing obvious clues or not believing an academic or philosophical conclusion or statements… resulting of him hitting him or threatening him.

Inspector McGure


Inspector McGure is the inspector for the Beika Police Force and is the commanding officer for the numerous detectives including Kudo and Mouri.

Not much to say about him other than he tends to listen to Conan when time goes on but only on rare occasions but like almost everyone else he tends to forget that Conan has been solving cases or point out important clues due to Conan’s appearance.

Heiji Hattori


Heiji Hattori is Shinichi’s best friend but also rival as a teen detective. At first they are competitive in solving the same case (while still in the body of Conan but vodka causes Conan to temporarily turn back into Shinichi) and Shinichi is the one that solved it while Heiji was fooled by the murder’s planning.

In their second encounter Heiji found out that Conan is Shinichi and they become close friends from there. He is suppose to keep quiet about Conan’s real identity but at times he calls Conan Shinichi when others are present.

Heiji is a master in kendo and he has a love for baseball as Shinichi’s love for soccer.

Heiji is a great detective as Shinichi but Heiji’s faults that he can get too competitive and he let his emotions get the best of him causing him to jump to the wrong conclusions.

Kazuha Toyama

[Anime Ita] Detective Conan ep 263 - Doppio mistero ad Osaka [DCF]

Kazuha Toyama is Heiji’s best friend and possibly girlfriend.

There isn’t much to say about her either except she is Heiji’s childhood friend and love interest. She is hot headed and her affections for Heiji causes her jealous nature to jump to quick and embarrassing conclusions like she thought Kudo is a girl (Ran).

She is trained Aikido.

Dr. Hiroshi Agasa


Dr. Agasa is Shinichi’s next door neighbor and friends to the Kudos. He invents all of Conan’s gadgets like the voice mimic bow tie, the wristwatch with a knockout dart, and Conan’s high powered sneakers.

He is the first one that know Conan’s identity and he is the one that suggested not to tell anyone his real identity or otherwise if the BO realizes Shinichi is still alive then they would come back and kill him also hurting Ran and the people the closest to him in the process. He also believed the best option is to live with Ran and Kogoro since Kogoro is a private detective but as we all know that Kogoro can’t deduct his way out of a paper bag, that idea went south quickly.

Since Conan became friends with Detective Boys, he often takes them on trips and gives them riddles to solve but it is Conan or Ai that solves it.

Ai Haibara/Shiho Miyano


Shiho is a teenage scientist that worked for the Black Organization as she is the one invented the poison that shrunken Shinichi. After the BO killed her older sister, she tried to kill herself with the poison but like Shinichi it only shrunk her to a child’s body and then assumes the identity as Ai Haibara. Knowing they used the same poison on Shinichi, she tried to go see him in his home but since Conan is now living with Ran, Dr. Agasa is the one that found her and took her in.

Ai does not remember how she made the poison so she could make a permanent antidote. So it up to Conan and Ai to find the Black Organization so they can return to their normal bodies and bring the BO once and for all.

Her personality that she is snarky, cold, and likes to toy with people’s minds. She acts more mature than Conan, even as a child when she suppose to act like a child.

She has a lot of beauty and many of the boys in school (especially the Detective Boys) are infatuated with her but it is clear that Ai is in love with Shinichi/Conan.

Ayumi Yoshida


Ayumi Yoshida is a female student at Conan’s school. She was the sole female of the Detective Boys until Ai joined the group. Before Conan joined up in their group of friends, she was the true leader since she is making all the decisions and actions for them (even though Genta is the proclaimed leader but he does nothing to back it up) until Conan is brought into their friendship and Conan leads them through danger.

Ayumi has a major crush on Conan (which makes him uncomfortable). She quickly wanted to become friends with Conan at his first day of school and then after saving her from bandits while catching some burglars and breaking the code from the map (while Genta and Mitsuhiko trying to take the credit of Conan’s work) she is the one that have Conan take the credit that he deserves and kissing him in the cheek, making Genta and Mitsuhiko jealous. At times she is already thinking of marriage with Conan (even though that is likely not going to happen since Conan is actually 17 while Ayumi is 7). Genta and Mitsuhiko both have a crush on Ayumi (and Ai) but Ayumi is oblivious to this and she has a crush on Conan… making Genta and Mitsuhiko envy Conan.

Mitsuhiko Tsuburaya


Mitsuhiko is the “smart” kid of the Detective Boys but nowhere smart or intelligent as Conan and Ai.

Mitsuhiko is more of a bookworm since he does a good knowledge in science and history than the Detective Boys excluding Conan or Ai. His knowledge at times become useful for the cases they are solving.

Mitsuhiko and the other Detective Boys would often try to get involve and solve cases but mostly it is Conan and Ai solve the cases while the Detective Boys try to take the credit and believe they are the ones that solved the cases.

He is very infatuated with Ayumi and Ai but both girls are infatuated with Conan which makes him jealous of Conan.

Genta Kojima


 The always hungry and tough guy Genta is the self-proclaimed leader of the Detective Boys but it is Conan is always leading the group while Genta takes credit of Conan’s work and skills (more than Ayumi or Mitsuhiko) and his “leadership” would often get the Detective Boys into trouble, making bad judgements, and making many of the situations worse than it is.

He is strong and brave (to a certain extent) but he lacks discipline, responsibility, and smarts.

He is infatuated with Ayumi and Ai but both girls are infatuated with Conan which makes him jealous of Conan.

Card Captor Sakura


Card Captor is about a 10 year old school girl who accidentally unleashed 52 magical cards called Clow Cards. Now she must recapture them before they wreak havoc and cause destruction upon the world.

I can tell you I love the Japanese version and I hate the American Dub version.

Sakura Kinomoto


Sakura Kinomoto was an average 10 year old school girl in Japan until she visits her father’s library one day and then went to check on a book that happens to have fifty-two magical cards and then they were set free to cause havoc. Luckily for her she has a guardian named Kero to help guide her to retrieve the cards before they cause destruction upon the word. After she collects them she transfers them into Sakura Cards to secure them from being release again.

Sakura can easily described as cheerful, energetic, and friendly but she is naive and oblivious. To my annoyance the American dub made Sakura a bitch even to the point throwing Syaoran Li to sleep outside in the cold after Syaoran and Kero switch bodies. I also find it strange that Sakura has no qualms in changing clothes in front of anyone in her room.

She first has a crush on her brother’s best friend Yukito but when he rejects her, she falls in love with her former rival Syaoran Li. She or Syaoran would have a card until the final test with Yue when Syaoran and Sakura lose the test except when Sakura got a second chance and defeats Yue. That always bothered me, Sakura gets two chances in the final test while Syaoran gets one… that doesn’t comes off fair to me. However I do like the romance between Sakura and Syaoran as they have a lot of chemistry and it plays off each other very well.


Another thing that bugs me about the North American dub that they edited out the romance for it would be inappropriate for the young audience. It is not like 10, 11, and 12 year old falling in love with each other is unheard of, it is common during that era. Many other children’s shows did it, 4Kids did it, EVEN NICK JR. DID IT.

Syaoran Li


Syaoran Li is by far my favorite character of Cardcaptors and he is my second favorite Anime character behind Yahiko… but sadly the Bogside Artists would likely to call me a liar on this due to their pathetic beliefs and personal experience that it is impossible for anyone to have a favorite Anime character.

Syaoran Li is the descendent of the creator of the Clow Cards, Clow Reed. He came from Hong Kong to search for the Clow Cards only to find out that Sakura has a few of them and forcefully tries to take them until Sakura’s brother intervenes. Sakura and Syaoran became rivals but that rivalry subsides into friendship and then into romance.

During capturing the Clow Cards Arc, Sakura is the only one that can seal the cards but a few of them belong to Syaoran until the Final Judgement. Syaoran is up against Yue but Syaoran is defeated and Sakura is able to defeat Yue (with two tries while Syaoran had one). One thing I did appreciate that the North American version tried to resolve this “unfairness” by Sakura was willing to give up the cards to Syaoran but Syaoran rejects them and says he will get over it.

The thing that I did not appreciate in the North American dub aside the cutting the romance for vague reasons that they made Syaoran a bigger asshole than the Japanese version.

Syaoran is brave and quicker to act and think on his feet than Sakura can.

At the end of the series Syaoran confesses his feelings for Sakura before he moves back to Hong Kong. At the second movie, Sakura realizes that she loves Syaoran. Syaoran returns from Hong Kong so Sakura could tell Syaoran about her love for him and after multiple interruptions she does admit that she loves him.



Tomoyo Daidouji


Tomoyo is Sakura’s cousin and best friend at school. Tomoyo is aware of Sakura’s double life as a Card Captor and would often use her camera to get footage on her adventures.

She would often design Sakura’s “combat” outfits for every adventure and give Sakura and Syaoran simple gadgets like cell phones since her mother works for a news agency.

She also aware of Syaoran’s feelings towards Sakura and would often push the relationship even further.

Not much to say about her except that she creeps me out.

Meiling Li


Meiling’s is Syaoran’s cousin and ex-fiance. She is a rival to Sakura in capturing Clow Cards and fighting for Syaoran’s affections but in teh end Meiling lost out to Sakura. Somehow Meiling is still supportive of Syaoran and helping Sakura tell Syaoran her true feelings towards him.

She is described as outspoken, competitive, overconfident, and impulsive.

She does not last long in the series as she comes from Hong Kong and then need to move back to Hong Kong within twenty episodes.



Cerberus or “Kero” or short is the guardian of the Clow Cards and his job is to choose the Card Captors and guide them through.

He loves playing video games and a glutton towards sweets.

I hate Kero. He is annoying and most often arrogant, selfish, and narrow minded. One that he calls out for Syaoran for just tearing up some lettuce for dinner while Kero sat around and did nothing while Kero still believed he did more than Syaoran in preparing dinner. So what you consider did more, tearing lettuce or sitting around and eating sweets.

Mostly he is in a form of a teddy bear but in his true form…


Toya Kimomoto


Toya is Sakura’s older brother.

Toya would often piss off Sakura by calling her “monster” but he cherish Sakura and very protective of her. Like when he catches Syaoran bullying Sakura leading Toya to dislike Syaoran, even after Sakura and Syaoran become friends because he knows that Sakura would more than likely to fall in love with Syaoran… which she does.

Toya has a magical ability to see spirits (like his deceased mother) and could tell when Sakura is on a magical adventure without seeing what is going on.

He best friends with Yukito. He and Yukito would often have different jobs on almost every episode. He does surrender his magical abilities to Yue so he can have a better chance of protecting Sakura.

Yukito Tsukishiro/Yue


Yukito is Toya’s best friend and Sakura’s crush. Again with the North American version cutting out the Sakura and Syaoran romance because it is “too graphic for kids”, but they do let Sakura crushing on Yukito happen… I don’t get it.

Yukito is describe as as kind and gentle, the opposite of his counterpart… Yue. His first encounter with Syaoran he willing to share his food to him but Syaoran runs away. Speaking of Syaoran and food Syaoran develops an attraction towards Yukito due to Syaoran’s attraction to magic and like Kero… Yukito has a huge appetite.

Yukito remains oblivious to Sakura’s activities and even when it is revealed to be Yue until Toya tells him about his double life and then Yukito is aware of his counterpart.

As for Yue his job is to claim the next master of the Clow Cards as declares Sakura the new master as she defeats him on her second try. Now he vows to protect Sakura from danger.





Yu Yu Hakusho is about a 14 year old troubled kid, Yusuke Urameshi who becomes a spirit detective after dying from a car accident while saving a little boy who was crossing the road. The spirit world did not expect him to die and then they granted his life back in exchange of becoming a spirit detective as in fighting evil demons and spirits from entering the living world of Earth.

Yusuke Urameshi


Yusuke Urameshi is a 14 year old boy living in Japan. He starts as a real troublemaker as getting into trouble in school, his mother, and almost everything else. Then a small boy was crossing the road while trying to get his ball when a fast speeding car comes down the road, Yusuke pushes him out of the path of the car and then the car hits and kills Yusuke instantly. The spirit world agreed to give his life back and then Yusuke becomes a spirit detective.

Like Harry Potter, Yusuke is the main character and does have trouble at home, although most of the reasons are Yusuke’s fault due to his trouble-making and rebellious acts and his mother does love him (although she’s drunk most of the time).

Yusuke can be describe as hot-headed, pushy, and rebellious, but has a good heart and willing to die for others to live.

Yusuke’s main power is spirit gun, but I will get into more of that in the “Performs Magical Feat” blog.

Kuwabara Kazuma


Like Harry Potter and Draco Malfoy, the story started them as rivals and bullies, however, the story started as rivals since they always get into physical fights where Yusuke always comes up on top and then Kuwabara is always determine to defeat Yusuke during a fight. After Yusuke dies, it turns that Kuwabara is heartbroken at his wake and calling him a coward for dying before he has a chance defeating him. Another major surprise that Kuwabara is sensitive to spirit activity since he can sense and communicate with ghost and spirit. It helps Yusuke to communicate with his love ones so Yusuke’s body can be saved by fire and be revived back to life.

After Yusuke is brought back to life, he becomes one of Yusuke’s allies when Kuwabara’s spirit awareness increases and participates in Genkai’s tournament so he can stop the villainous Rando. At the tournament, he gains his spirit sword for the first time, but it wasn’t enough defeating Rando. Since then, he become one of Yusuke’s powerful and reliable allies.

One could argue he more like Ron Weasely, but somewhat has Draco’s personality.



Hiei is a demon living in the human world. He was a ruthless and heartless demon that kills for fun. When Yusuke became a spirit detective, Hiei and his partner Kurama first case. Hiei captures Keiko and is transforming her into a demon. Hiei and Kurama are defeated by Yusuke. They are arrested and in exchange to clean their slates, they help them against the Four Saint Beasts. Hiei fights and defeats the Blue Demon, Seiryu so Yusuke can defeat the leader of the Four Saint Beast. Since then, he and Kurama became part of Yusuke’s team against a team  of evil spirits.



Kurama is Hiei’s best friend and partner. Kurama is a fox spirit since Kurama is “demon fox” in Japanese. Out of the main characters he is the most cunning and calculating. He put his feelings aside and sees the bigger picture. He watches and acts against his enemies based on their mistakes and tactics. He cares for others, especially his friends and family unlike Hiei was they were introduced. However, when in demon form his personality changes to a much more merciless and cruel nature.

He, Hiei, and another demon Goki steal three artifacts and then shortly after he wants to leave the alliance. Yusuke’s mission is to retrieve the artifacts and defeats Goki. Kurama takes a wounded Yusuke to a hospital where they meet Kurama’s human mother… much to Yusuke’s surprise. When Yusuke takes on Hiei, Kurama takes the strikes of Hiei’s sword attack and stops Hiei from Yusuke’s girlfriend Keiko from being a demon.

Later he and Hiei becomes Yusuke and Kuwabara’s allies from the rest of the series. He fights with them against the Saint Beasts, the Dark Tournament saga, and more.



In the video games, manga, or Anime the plot involves around the main character to become the greatest Pokemon master. Either Red (in the games if you choose) or Satoshi/Ash Ketchum goes to city to city to challenge gym leaders to get a number of badges to qualify in a tournament… which Satoshi/Ash often loses somewhere in the middle.

Now there are just too many characters so I will stick to the main ones and stop to Johto.

Ash Ketchum/Satoshi


Ash Ketchum (Satoshi in Japan) is a 10 year old boy who wishes to be the greatest Pokemon master. He could be seen as energetic and enthusiastic boy. He starts out as a typical rookie who looks before he leaps and does not come off with good strategies and often wins based on luck or sympathy. Later he does get better and is able to hold off in a battle on his own even though his stupidity does show a little too often.

His number one Pokemon is Pikachu, but I will get into that later.

Ash Ketchum is like the John Cena of Pokemon since Ash does take a moral stance, but it does cost him some important battles in the long run.

Ash can be popular with the ladies since at times he could attract girls at his age with very little to no effort. There are rumors and hints that several girls have crushes or romantic feelings towards him like Misty, May, Macy, Angie, Dawn, Bianca, Anabel, Serena, Iris, and Miette.



Misty becomes Ash’s first human companion and she sticks around with Ash for the next few seasons because Ash’s Pikachu stole her bike when Ash was fleeing from angry Spearows. She can be nice and sweet, but she is quick to temper and can turn to a nasty person.

Her home town is Cerulean City where she lives at the Cerulean Gym. When Misty’s three sister refuse to battle Ash after getting beaten so many times and just hand Ash the Cerulean Gym’s Cascade badge freely, Misty steps in. They battle until Team Rocket interrupts the fight and the sister’s hands Ash the badge anyway.

She does not provide anything else other than being Ash’s adviser and she is written off as a main character at the end of Johto.



Brock becomes Ash’s third human companion after Ash defeated Brock in gym battle for the boulder badge. Yes, IMO Ash did defeat Brock since Brock had those water sprinklers installed in the first place and they would go off if fire (can be caused by any Pokemon) and his rock pokemon would be the likely bystander and also Ash had outside interference by Brock’s younger siblings which I think it is an automatic disqualification against the Gym leader. So Ash did win technically by disqualification.

Brock’s past that his mother died from an illness (later the writings say she left the children to be a trainer) and his father left the family until the end of Showdown in Pewter City. After his family took over the gym so Brock could train himself to be a Pokemon breeder. He would often give Ash information and insights on Pokemon who his facing or in the need of medical help.

His running gags that he goes head over heels over every beautiful women he meets, but he gets rejected or dragged away from Misty (or someone else) every time. He briefly leaves the show due to complaints of racism from the parents so he was gone for most of the Orange Island season and then he comes back when the fans wanted him back.

He is written off once again to be a Pokemon doctor, but does appear on more rare occasions.

Ash’s Pikachu


Of course we cannot talk about the cast without Pikachu, the story’s mascot. After Ash woke up late and got to Professor Oak’s lab late to get his first Pokemon, he loses out three Pokemon and the only choice he had was a rebellious Pikachu. Pikachu would often ignore Ash’s command and constantly zaps him (and everyone else) who gets near. After Ash protected Ash from angry Spearows, Pikachu becomes Ash’s most faithful Pokemon and companion. He would often be in Ash’s most battles and he does not become more than that.

He becomes the primary target of Team Rocket, which is one of the reasons Team Rocket follows Ash and his gang around.

One could argue he could be the Hedwig of the series, except Pikachu is very prominent in Pokemon.





Now I now that TMNT is not an Anime at all, but it still falls into “Cast of Series Introduced” category since TMNT do have a cast even though the Bogside Artists would deny that fact.

I was a huge Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle when I was a kid, especial the 1987 cartoon series and the first two live action movies. The third one? Let’s forget that one exist.

I will not talk much about TMNT because James Rolfe (aka the Angry Video Game Nerd) already cover a lot of bases of the TMNT and he could explain the series better than I can.

TMNT cartoon series review (Part 3 of 3)



Leonado is known as the leader of the team. He is always be wearing the blue bandana and will be using the two katana’s as a weapon. He can be describe as self-discipline and the most serious minded.

Leo does not have much as a personality so he does not stand out to me other than be the one doing the right thing, as the other ninja turtles.

He would often clash with Raphael’s due to their stubborn and brash natures.



Raphael is the hot headed rebel. He wears the red bandana and he uses two Sai weapons.

Ralph is the rebel and the hot-headed of the group. He is the physically the strongest of the group and determined to fight and get stronger, which is why he is normally bigger and more muscular than the other three turtles in most adaptations such as the Michael Bay’s TMNT movie in 2014.



Michelangelo is the fun loving of the group. He wears the orange bandana and he usually have nun-chunks, but his weapon would often get changed around due to nun-chucnks are too violent for certain countries like the United Kingdom. I don’t’ get that either, how nun-chunks are too violent while Leo’s katana or Ralph’s Sai aren’t violent.

He would often have the most jokes and often go with the flow, but his negativity that his immaturity can get himself or/and the other turtles into trouble and can get on the other turtles nerves.



Donatello is the intelligent one of the group as he is a major expert in science and technology, sometimes he would invent gadgets for the team for the better or worse. He wears the purple bandana and has a naginata but does not have any blades attached.

He is my favorite TMNT. He is tech savvy and in the TMNT 2014 movie, he has gadgets with him and have he looks of a nerd.

If you want a better explanation on the TMNT, then let James Rolfe (aka the Angry Video Game Nerd) to explain it…

TMNT cartoon series review (Part 1 of 3)

Don’t expect the Bogside Artists to notice the link above or you to notice the link above, that demonstrates more of their cowardice, ignorance, and stupidity. If you are a Power Ranger fan then they claimed that I lied about Power Rangers ever having a cast, like Jason, Trini, Billy, Zach, Kimberly, and Tommy. Speaking of Power Rangers, there were a crossover with Power Rangers and Haim Saban’s short lived TMNT TV series… but expect the Bogside Artists denying that ever happen too.


I know there are many more examples out there even though the Bogside Artists and the Willy the Wizard estate disagree. Am I lying about any of these stories having a cast? The Bogside Artists believe that I am despite the evidence being presented. They also believe that many of these stories I deluded and believe there is no Rurouni Kenshin, TMNT, and etc due to their high level of ignorance and stupidity.

Many stories have a cast and very rarely a story just have one person… especially for a critically acclaimed or best selling stories and somehow the Bogside Artists doesn’t see it. Heck, the Willy the Wizard also used this against Rowling because he had friends helping Harry out to prepare for next tournament. Having a cast and either helping or antagonizing always happens and that should never be seen as plagiarism or otherwise 99.5% of stories since the beginning of time should be seen as plagiarism.


This is where I count on how many “stolen ideas and elements” are used in each Anime/Manga or other stories for each “Bogside Artists Plagiarism Accusations Against JK Rowling” article to prove how easy to think of those “stolen ideas and elements” and having these “similar” ideas and elements are not plagiarism. If the writers and creators of these stories could do it and they all have a dozen of other sources for having similar ideas, it is very highly possible Rowling could to.
