In 2001 during the year of the first released issue of W.I.T.C.H., I was a 12 year old girl still in the sixth grade and drawing anime style characters, such as Sailor Moon, terribly (I am self-taught in free-hand drawing and I have never took a drawing class). I didn't know of its existence until I saw a commercial about a new animated series called W.I.T.C.H. on the Jetix channel. At the time I didn't pay much attention to it because I was into "Digimon" ( and still am!). A few months later when it was mid-way through the airing of the first season, I got bored enough to watch an episode. At first, I thought that it was interesting and okay, but I wasn't entire hooked yet. A few weeks later after watching my first W.I.T.C.H. episode on television, my family took me and my younger brother to the nearby bookstore. There, I saw the American (slightly censored) version of the original comic series. At first, I thought that it was one of those silly comic adaptation from the animated series and didn't realized that it was actually the other way around until I did some research. I sat there in the bookstore reading the very first 6 issues compacted into 3 books and immediately saw how much of big difference it is from the animated series. I started to watch more episodes of the series, including the ones that I missed and I started to do some more research on its history. By then, I was officially hooked. I fell in love with its unique ways of story-telling and artistic style and I felt that there was a certain charm to it that I have never felt before.
After waiting months on end for the American released, I got impatient and went online instead. To my luck, I was able to find a gold mine of comic scans online and began to read those instead. After years of reading WITCH, I also began to notice the difference as it transitioned itself from one saga to the next. I noticed the changes in the art styles, then the story-telling, then the entire thing which, I admittedly think, is now crap (the changes, not the entire WITCH universe). What was once a magical experience, I find WITCH now somewhat tasteless and a shell of its former glory. There were some issues that I still think was good, while others were so terrible and childish that it makes me preferred its rival, Winx Club, more than itself (Yes, it's that bad). I am now very disappointed that WITCH isn't as great as it used to be, and I find myself criticizing some of its new issues even more. Some people might ask me, "If you don't like it, then why bother continuing to read it?" My only answer is because I can't find myself to hate it entirely. W.I.T.C.H. has been around for a while and I fell in love with it as a teenager. Although I do find that it lost most of its magical touch, there are still some moments which I thought was wonderful enough for me to continue reading.
After ten years, W.I.T.C.H. has changed greatly, but personally, I still find that it still has that certain amount of charm that I just couldn't discard easily. W.I.T.C.H. comics has been a great inspiration to me in more ways than one, and to this day I am grateful to it. After drawing countless works, I finally made a small switch to WITCH art style. Although not best at first (as I'm still learning) I suddenly find myself drawing my own W.I.T.C.H. fanart calendar series, started my very first fan-comic side story of C.H.Y.K.N. (WITCH's predecessors), and now I'm slowly developing my new idea for a full blown WITCH fan-saga (called WITCH: Dreams of Lusteria)!

Great...another bad forbidden romance film that I can tear into. Kristen Stewart, Robert Patterson, Taylor Lautner, and the rest of the forgettable cast returned in the third installment of the Twilight saga that either makes fans' heart throbbed pointlessly...or make anti-Twilight viewers laugh their asses off. If the latter died laughing, I can tell you that the film killed them either because it was too boring or to stupid. Or both.
The Twilight saga continues with Bella rejecting Edward's marriage proposal from the end of the previous film. She is, however, more interested in having him turning her into a vampire...strange because last I've checked, the latter is more permanent. At least you can divorce and get out of a bad marriage if things doesn't work out, but when someone turns you into a blood-sucking monster, there's no turning back. But since Bella has the intelligence level of a broomstick, this comes to no surprise for me. But apparently, Bella is not the only stupid character in this third installment. Take the Cullen family for example. While Victoria (from the first film) is busy building up an army of turned vampires for revenge, the Cullens can't even figure out that it's her when they saw the news reporting dead people. Victoria is their only remaining threat yet they're not smart enough to figure it out that she's the only one who still has a grudge against them for killing her mate? It seems that if you hang around Bella too often, her aura of stupidity will rub off on you, causing your IQ to drop to 50%.
Now sensing that Victoria is still out there along with her personal army of turned-vampires, the Cullens and the wolves decided to form a peace treaty and they take turn guarding Bella. If any one can actually tell me why Bella is so important that she would be able to get two species that hate each other to stop fighting and protect her from being killed, please tell me because after three films, I still can't see what's so darn special about this brainless, selfish broomstick.
"I don't understand what I did to make you hate me so much," said Bella to Rosalie. (You wanna hear my list of 10+ reasons why I hate you and this series so much, Bella?)
"I don't hate you...I just don't particularly like you," replied Rosalie. Girl, I love you for being the only Cullen vampire to have to common sense to be an anti-Bella.
Not only do I like Rosalie, but I particularly was interested in seeing her background story in how she got turned after being sexually abused in the 1920's and was left to die. Other characters with more interesting backgrounds include Jasper who was a Confederate soldier turned in order to train new born vampires and execute them after a year. I do feel sorry for almost all of the Cullen and the wolves for putting themselves in danger just for the sake of one person in this film. However, if I had any pity for Jacob before for falling in love with Bella, it's gone from this film as the portrayal of his character had taken a turn for the worse. Constantly, Jacob insist that she should dump Edward and go with him and that deep down she does love him. Sorry, wolf-boy but she really doesn't love you. She's been stringing you all along and will string you again if you keep insisting. If you really want to win her over, offer to turn her into a werewolf and copulate with her. After all, that's what Edward is offering and she said yes to him. When it comes to love in Twilight, it's all about lust and sex to win over this needy girl. If you only offer your caring heart, Jacob, she'll take it and break it after sucking all the blood out of it. Isn't love beautiful in this series?
Eventually, Victoria and her newborn vampires arrived and a battle between them and the Cullens+wolves pact ensue. After having vampires sparkles, have shadows and reflections, and aren't allergic to garlic...they've decided to have vampires made out of stone, especially when you kill them by snapping their necks off. Why stop there? It gets better because vampires sparkle, have shadows and reflections, have different super powers, are made of stone, and they're flammable. What exactly do their sweat glands produce? Gasoline? At least you've given me idea and a burning desire to kill Edward. In the end, Victoria and her newly turned vampires are killed and the Volturi are the new antagonist because they insisted on killing off the last newly turned vampire, even when the Cullens offered her shelter and protection in return for her surrender.
The film closed with Bella turning down Jacob's offer once again, Bella and Edward setting their wedding date in August, and finding a way to tell Bella's father of their engagement.
After three films, I preferred the 2nd one because this film bored me to death with pointless characters, pointless plots, poor special effects, and pointless romance with little to no improvement in acting and characters' development whatsoever. Although I did enjoy some of the flashbacks of these characters, it ironically made me feel as if I know less and less about Bella, the protagonist of the series, as a character. There were some hilarious moments, the best being Bella breaking her hand by punching Jacob in the face. How I love to see this character suffers. After three films, we don't know anything about Bella nor anything about her past. Like Princess Aurora in Disney's Sleeping Beauty, Bella is nothing more than a spectator in her own film while some of the side characters have more interesting facts. Characters such as Rosalie and Jasper had some interesting flashbacks, leaving me to want more. Instead, I get another long film watching them risking their lives to protect Bella. At this pace, I do not believe we will learn anything about Bella except for the fact that she lusts for Edward and toys around with Jacob's feelings.
