So, well how do I put this? I story of put off working on this post for a while, partially because I forgot to and the other being not sure when I should post it. Because of that now I have been nominated this three times. So consider this the only post I will do for it, at least for now.
Anyway enough about that short ramble. Thank you Krystallina from Daiyamanga, Ka-chan from Ka-chan Anime Reviews, and Yuri Overlord Og-man fromYuri Nation for this nomination. I will say there is no way I can think of a total of 45-60 people to nominate for this, so I will nominate as many people as I can think of. So the rules.
Hello again, I originally said I was going to stop doing award based posts for a while, but I was nominated for two different ones that I have not done before and I do what I want. For this one I will not nominate people. But the next one I will. This one, as the title suggests, is the Real Neat Blog Award.
Liebster Award Nomination 6: I Have No More Die Hard References
Well, since I am out of Die Hard references I think I should get started. I was nominated by krisneo99 from the blog Life of a Singaporean Student. The typical rules, which I am now realizing I left out on half the posts, deal with some things. Anyway since I am just answering the questions and am not nominating anyone this time around, since joking aside and am actually being serious for once, I will probably be here again soon answering more questions. Enough about that since I gladly accept it and like answering the questions that the people took the time and made.
Without further ado, thank you krisneo99 for nominating me for this Liebster Award.
I was nominated by Masumi Amari from Morning Toast. So, thank you for nominating me, I mean it. So, let me see I am no out of Die Hard References after this one. Anyway I seem to be right about the fact that it only takes a week between these posts. Since I nominated people last time I will not nominate people this time. Maybe every other four, of course although that is a joke the scary thing is I might be right.
Before I begin I would just like to thank everyone. It has only been four months since starting this and this past month alone there was a lot of growth here. So, once more I want to say thank you to each and every one of you guys. I honestly did not think it was going to grow this much so quickly.
Anyway time to get to the eleven questions that I was asked. I would also like to thank Masumi once more for giving the most random questions I have been asked to date.
Here is Number 3. All the others are on my About Page.
Okay, well this is more five, since in 2 I answered 2 people’s questions at once. Anyway, unlike the last three this time I am nominating people. I was nominated again by Viewer Discretion is Advised, who originally nominated me. So, thank you again. Since the last one there are a lot more people I talk to, even though it has only been almost a month, but still. I want to nominate people. I also did a quick check to see if it somehow went full circle by clicking on who nominated who and it after a lot of clicking no, at least as far as I could tell unlike the last few that where.
So, Liebseter Award Nomination 4 Live Free or Nominate Hard (I am running out of Die Hard References with these things)
So, I was nominated again for the Liebster Award. Ironically enough both went full circle within five days and both came out within hours of each other. I nominated one person, who nominated two people, who nominated them, who nominated me. I think it is a little funny how fast that happened. So, I did say the least I can do is answer questions since if I were to nominate people, more than likely I would be back here next week answering more questions. So, without farther ado, thank you Braverade from Rabujoi and Mariagiakoumatos95 at Maria Rants About Stuff for nominating me again. Since Braverade nominated me first I will answer those questions first.
Questions from Braverade from Rabujoi
What was the first anime you ever watched?
Not counting Pokemon, it would be Deltora Quest. More than likely the most random answer you get for a series not a lot of people probably heard of, but it is an anime nevertheless.
Did that first anime get you into anime, or did that require watching more shows?
I was unsure if that series really was an anime, so I checked out a few more. Code Geass and especially Fairy Tail was what really got me into anime.
What is your favorite food?
Anything that has chocolate or sweets of some kind. I have a massive sweet tooth. Baked goods too.
Who is your favorite character designer?
I never really gave this any thought. It is something I do not really pay attention to that much.
If so inclined, what character would you have the least trouble cosplaying?
I think I would have the least trouble cosplaying as Koyomi Araragi from Bakemonogatari, since I have long black hair. Granted I would need to remove my glasses, but other than that would be it.
What is one sin an anime could commit that would make you turn your back on it?
This one is really difficult sort of. I view this as a reason to drop an anime, which most cases tend to be forgetting to watch it, or I just got bored of it because it was not interesting. I do however have to say shows that have the final episode dedicated to basically stating “we are asking for a second season so we are going to build up as if it is a second season.” And then they never get a second season. That I think is the biggest sin an anime could make. It is fine if it is small, not when it takes up a whole episode setting up season 2.
Who are your top 5 (or 10) characters, regardless of gender?
Saber (Fate Stay Night)
Tohka (Date A Live)
Akame (Akame ga Kill)
Tatsumi (Akame ga Kill)
Shido (Date A Live)
Natsu (Fairy Tail)
I cannot really think beyond that right now.
Assuming they’d do a good job (not at all a certainty), which anime would you most like to see made into a Hollywood film?
Cowboy Bebop, with the exception that we know it would be good. This is something that seems like it would work excellent in live action. I know there has been talks, but anything would be better then another anime movie like Dragon Ball Evolution, the one we wish we could forget.
Which anime character do you identify most with, if any?
Gin from Gintama or again Koyomi Araragi from Bakemonogatari, I can be witty when I want to, make insane references, as well as a few other things.
What is your favorite beverage—alcoholic or otherwise?
Although I just turned 22 like four days ago, I have yet to drink any alcohol, I refuse to it is a personal choice. But soda is DR. Pepper.
Which anime do you wish got a sequel, that never did (or hasn’t yet)?
I am going with A Certain Magical Index Season 3, but sequel wise D-Frag, the manga is always funny and they did a good job on the adaptation.
Questions from Mariagiakoumatos95 at Maria Rants About Stuff
1) What inspired you to create a blog?
I am not really sure. Although I’ll go with my response in the first time doing these questions, and that is that I like to write. I write a lot. Since this hobby is a secret and I live at home, it is not like talking into a camera and posting videos is a good idea. More than anything I just wanted to have fun and talk about anime, which I cannot do in my life with anyone.
2) What was your first anime?
Deltora quest as I said. But I will add my second anime, which I consider more as an anime, Oh My Goddess.
3) If you could cosplay any anime character (assume crafting skill and money are not an issue), who would you choose?
If crafting skills does not matter, would being Ingeel from Fairy Tail work, life size by the way. In all seriousness Sinbad with dijin equip from Magi.
4) Aside from reviewing anime, what are some of your hobbies?
Writing, a lot. I have two weekly series on Deviantart (Although one goes on hiatuses more than it actually comes out). On Wattpad I have a series, which is a more finalized, heavily edited, and expanded upon version then the one on Deviantart, this is also a series I wish to publish someday. It is Hero Team in Training, basically a story about superheroes dealing with trying to work as a team since there has yet to be a team of heroes that has been able to work together successfully. Most of my stories deal with super powers, or magic, or some sort of fantasy. I am also really looking for some feedback. Other than that, I am working on my main series that I wish to publish that I has been working on since middle school. I am working on the third draft which I feel confident enough to submit for publishing afterwards. Other than that, reading comics, specifically Spiderman or manga. I would put watching anime on the list, but that is probably a given.
5) If you could travel anywhere in the world, where would you go?
Japan, that one is obvious. Other than that Italy or England since that is where my family was from a long time ago, and I always wanted to go.
6) Which was the saddest anime you’ve ever watched?
If I were to go off of series I cried the most watching, (since I am a guy who is not afraid to mention when he gets emotional) Fairy Tail and Date A Live. But saddest, I would not conceder Golden Time sad even though it put my on an emotional rollercoaster. So I am not really sure, none really pop into my head.
7) The funniest anime?
I would have to say either D-Frag or Seitokai Yakuindomo. I know I can go in laughing and come out laughing before the episode even begins. Same for Gintama.
8) If you could star in any anime, which would you choose?
I am assuming voice in an anime, I can change my voice fairly easily, so I think I could pull of the straight man character for a comedy anime, If not then just the character that is well relaxed. For whatever reason Baka and Test is on my mind, but I think I could go with something else. I am not really sure.
9) If you could take any anime character out on a date, who would you pick?
Saber, I talked about my unhealthy love for Saber on day 7 of the 30 Day anime Challenge.
10) If you could have any career in the world, what would you want to do?
Be a published writer or working for Marvel as a story writer for comics. Or really anything that could make me involved with helping people in some way or another.
11) What is a goal you wish to accomplish this year?
To be able to submit my novel for publication, even if I get rejected I do not care, as long as I submit it a few times to try to get it published.
So, that were all the questions I was asked. Again I would like to thank Braverade from Rabujoi and Mariagiakoumatos95 at Maria Rants About Stuff for nominating me. This was a lot of fun the second time around. Hopefully the next time I am asked to do this it will not be for a few more months, if not I will still gladly answer the questions. (Something tells me I will get asked again next week, not sure why though)
So here I am again doing another one of these things. Again I was tagged by dandylion13 at Viewer Discretion is Advised. This was actually right after being nominated for the Liebster award. So, I just have to answer a few questions and nominate 3 people to answer these same questions as well. So, instead of dragging on here are the questions.
When was the last time you went to a store containing anime?
Last Wednesday, when I went to go get my Spiderman comics at Newberry Comics, it is a popular chain in New England. However they only have literally there are four anime series and that is it. The same goes for the movie store, which mostly has used ones that are incomplete series and the Best Buy as well, but it has few and ones that are new releases, most in which are movies or Bleach. Manga is the same way the book store does not have much either, although it does have the series I get so I am fine with that. All these stores are also over 25 miles away from where I live as well, which is a pain, but it is not far from where I go to school and I have always gone to that area since I was little so the drive is not so bad.
Do you usually watch anime online? On what website?
Since my anime hobby is a secret and I live at home, online, that and Toonami is on too late for me to watch since I am usually in bed before it begins. Although I will not say the main website I use to watch new shows as they air. Old shows that finished airing I watch on Crunchyroll, Hulu (by the way they have a lot of series for free and ones that are no longer licensed by companies as well), and Funimation (who does their stuff through hulu).
First Japanese word you learned?
Baka, it also helped me learn a word for my Spanish class since it sounds similar to the word for cow.
Best animation style in your opinion?
Birdy the Mighty Decode comes right to mind, at least right now, I really like that series and the overall design and flow of how the animation is, is cool.
Best Anime Pet?
I’m a cat person and the only two that really come to mind are Happy from Fairy Tail and Luna from Sailor Moon, I am going with Luna for looking more like a cat.
Longest Anime you’ve ever watched?
Although I watched over 270 episodes of Bleach, I am not continuing it since I did not finish the series and dropped it. So I am going with Fairy Tail, which as of today has 222 episodes that has aired, (kind of ironic with tomorrow being 2/22 among other reasons).
What is the shortest Anime you’ve watched?
After looking at my anime list, Tenchi Muyou! Ryo-Ohki, which is 6 episodes. This eventually turns into a 20 total series of OVAs, but this was the first batch and only one I completed even though I want to watch more.
Who is your favorite anime couple?
The couple is Araragi and Senjogahara, from the Monogatari series. I really like how they interact with one another. I talked about this in my 30 Day Anime challenge already. But yeah, I like them simple as that.
So, now it comes to nominating the 3 people for the Inspector Green Tag.
