A riguardo

How do you like my banner? All pink and with Sakura blossoms! ^^

It's David_Mcnab aka David Mcnab here! ^^

I also go by several other names like:

  • Deibimanabu (or Deibi Manabu)
  • Greatkazooman (or GKM)
  • Souji Monaru (my pen-name)

I came up with the pen-name - it means what my real name means, but in Japanese!
  • David = "beloved son" & Mcnab = "son of the abbot";
    therefore, "beloved son of the abbot" = 僧子最愛 (Souji Monaru/Souko Saiai)

As you could probably tell merely by checking out the collections I have on the page here, I love Japan! Drawing, reading, writing, listening to music, watching videos or creating stuff, it's mostly Japanese-related for me! I've been very interested in these things for over 18 years, and have amassed lots of figures and knowledge about anime and/or the Japanese culture.

I lived in Japan from 1998-2000, and was able to see first-hand what it was like to live and breathe Japan - it was an amazing experience, and for those who have done or are doing the same, I am glad to have been one of you. I just adore anime stuff and so I draw it a lot (mostly my own characters, but sometimes other stuff...including cartoon characters), and have come a long way since 1994 when I first started. Of course, my love of anime started way back from earliest childhood, but as many of us out there, I didn't know it was Japanese at the time. Now that I know, I seek more of it all the time! That's primarily why I also collect figures...

* * * * *
Nendoroids!! These were all I had less than a year ago!

Well, as for figures, I am mainly a Nendoroid fanatic, but I also love to buy and collect the larger figures too. In fact, I first started my collecting days as a rabid large-scale figure collector, but since money and space are hard to come by for me these days, I turned towards my one-time hate Nendoroids!

Yes, I was first disgusted by Nendoroids as I never wanted companies to make action figures and forget to make the scale ones. As it turns out, I (as of writing: 2010-12-10) now own 76 of these little darlings, and I am more than happy that I turned when I did! From the photo in the banner there with only ten Nendos (with Watarase Jun in the background! ^^) to 76 of them - it's certainly been one strange but fun ride! I decided to aim for the entire lot of them, and I hope to one day say that I have them all.

In regards to scale figures, I still have kept the majority of them I had before, but the rest are ready for selling or for giving away. I don't really care for a lot of the figures I used to want, so these 'not wanted' ones are just taking up precious space. It's a shame, but I just don't care about them like I used to.

My character Kiseki has been through quite a lot in just one year! ^^

As you can also see, I love to draw, and the girl at the top banner and the one just above is my character Kiseki.

For those of you who don't know, Kiseki is a Japanese word/name:

  • it can mean 'wonder/miracle' - 奇跡
  • it can mean 'tracks (railway)' - 軌跡
  • it could also mean 'pyroxene/augite' - 輝石
  • or it could have been 'join the majority/pass away' - 鬼籍
  • but straight 'Kiseki' is the one I use - キセキ

But her name does mean 'wonder/miracle' in this case. Wow, did that bore anyone? ^^; Hopefully not...

Anyway, I have been drawing for 28 years, but only anime for 16 of those. I just started drawing anime purely because I loved the details like folds in clothes and the way they conveyed emotions through little expression. I first tried to copy the style of a character from Y's 3 that I had a picture of that I had saved, and then onto Rieze from Secret of Mana and then I started to draw Tenchi Muyo characters. I've since drawn characters like Inspector Gadget, Gadget from Rescue Rangers and Hatsune Miku as well, and I have always got plans to draw more famous characters, but little time to do it in!

I've actually drawn Emma Watson too - real style of course...

I have created many of my own characters (the ID picture is an original - unnamed), and have the desire to maybe create an anime or game with them involved someday. Kiseki of course being my mascot character can be in any of the creations I make, but others would need to be as they were intended. As for Kiseki, I have tried a few times to make a flash-site for her, but I've gone off the rails more than once from the intended project. It's still on the cards however.

* * * * *
Anyway, that's about it for my little spiel about who I am and what I do - be sure to catch more of my reviews on the figures I own, and more photos of course! ^_~

Yes, that is me there - a little camera-shy! ^^

Hi, sorry to intrude on your profile, but I just got a Charinko Rider (nendoroid n. 021), and I was thinking if you managed to figure out how to use the extra glasses that come with her? I tried everything, but have no idea on how they'd fit her face =.=""""
Are they even suposed to be for a nendoroid? o.o""""
