TB = FYI INFO - RevisedI decided to REVISE FYI info that might become useful to know when currently reading or keeping track of the TB universe and terminology. Since most Trinity Blood fans are not at all familiar with the differences between the anime, manga and novels. This update and revised information will help clear up and explain a few things regarding the cannon anime, novel or manga versions as we know it currently.
In truth, most of the Trinity blood cannon characters and themes are based loosely on named from well-known Biblical, Historical, Mythological and fictional figures/people or places that can be found and even taken on the same full names as their real life counterparts. The late Sunao Yoshida possibly got most of his ideas from them for when created the series. Even in the anime and manga some names and places there are taken and can be seen everywhere within the TB universe.

Art Thieves and Publishing Your WorkOriginally published under :iconmangaacademy:, hence the focus on comics.
Beybladegal asked me: “I was wondering how safe this site is for original art work. I’ve been wanting to put some of my own character on here but I’m afraid to out of fear of having someone steal it. I was just wondering if you’ve had any problems with this kind of thing? Or if you do something special to keep them safe.”
I figured this is a question lots of people ask themselves (and I have too), so I’ll share my long-winded answer.
1. Thieves are going to steal. We had our car broken into once and the thief took nothing. He couldn’t pry open the door so he just shattered the window to unlock it. We had nothing valuable, but we had to replace our broken window. I hope that a thief may wander into your gallery, see nothing worth taking

The Encyclopedia of SwordmakingWelcome Ladies and Gentleman of DeviantArt
Did you know there are 3 aspects that make a swordmaker? That would be the swordmaker him/herself (benevolence), The sword that is made (Valor) and finally the swordmaking knowledge (Wisdom). I based this concept on the Imperial Regalia of Japan which is made of 3 sacred treasures the Jewel which represents Benevolence, the Sword that represents Valor and finnaly the Mirror that represents wisdom.

... in my humble opinion, neither one's going great, really.
Despite all that... thanks a million for visiting my little proverbial hole in the wall (of the Internet). Stay a while, have some tea, leave a comment... maybe even start a conversation.
