Best Anime Villain

Hi, hi! Welcome to day 9 of the anime challenge! Today’s topic is: Best Anime Villain!

You know, I don’t actually watch a whole lot of anime that would have a villain. There’s always an antagonist but that doesn’t really mean villain. The only villain that comes to mind when I think of anime that I’ve seen is:

Kyubey has got to be the most deceitful little shit I’ve ever seen. It looks so adorable but I should have known better. I mean, does it have two sets of ears!? That’s deceitful in itself. 😐

I’ve seen some arguments that say Kyubey did nothing wrong, but I highly disagree. The incubators prey on little girls to make contracts without telling them all of the terms within the contract. That’s not legally binding! 😓

They look so cute and innocent though. It’s such a shame that they are such good manipulators and eventually slip up and show that they really are the bad guys.

I mean, I guess they aren’t bad in the sense that they are just trying to keep their species alive, but deceiving little girls is a horrible way to do it. I’m sure there are plenty of them that would still have accepted the contract knowing everything that could happen just for that one wish.

I think what disappoints me the most is that some of the characters are okay with what Kyubey did. Like Mami and Madoka. I think Mami just didn’t want to lose her head over it.

…Sorry. I had to throw a Mami joke in there.

Favorite Anime Couple

Hi, hi! Welcome to day 8 of the anime challenge! Today’s topic is: Favorite Anime Couple!

Luckily there aren’t too many anime couples out there that I’m a huge fan of. Most of the anime I’ve been watching lately doesn’t even have love interests. So that makes this one pretty easy! My favorite anime couple is Shizuku Mizutani and Haru Yoshida from My Little Monster!

Their relationship isn’t what most people would expect. Shizuku typically stays to herself and focuses on her studies and Haru is known for being violent and never attending school. However, after Shizuku delivers Haru’s homework to him one day Haru quickly becomes attached to Shizuku.

Shizuku doesn’t immediately have the same feelings for Haru but you get to watch both of them grow and open up, not only to each other, but to others as well.

This one is pretty short but I  think they did a very nice job of fitting in all of the character growth as well as getting in a good story.

The only issue I had with this anime was a bit of a cliffhanger ending. It does leave plenty of room for the viewer to make their own assumptions as to what happens and I suppose opened the door for tons of fanfic. However, I’d still prefer an ending episode that ties things up a little. Oh well 😕

Either way, I still think they make an adorable couple!

Doki Doki Crate

Hi, hi! I recently ordered a Doki Doki Crate from Japancrate.com. This wasn’t the first crate I’d ordered from them. Back in December I’d ordered their special Christmas crate which included a Japan Crate which is filled with Japanese snacks, a few things from the Doki Doki Crate (cute/kawaii items) and the Kira Kira Crate (beauty products). I believe it had a few things from the Umai Crate as well which is all about the noodles!

Anyway, I got an email for $5 off so I said ‘why not?’

Oh man, when I received it the first thing I noticed was that it was packed so full the top of it was bulging! That got me super hyped!

Fun Fact: Kumamon is the mascot for Kumamoto Prefecture

This cute little Kumamon pitcher was the first thing I saw. I am so thankful for it too as I had just recently decided that I needed to drink so much more water and now I can keep this right next to me at my desk! It even goes perfectly with this next item…

Next up was this absolutely adorable strawberry shaped tea infuser! YES! I actually recently bought a bunch of teas and this will make my life so much easier! <3 I mean come on, if you love tea, you’d want a super cute infuser, right?

Okay, I couldn’t help myself after those two items. I had to reach in and see how adorable this blanket was going to be. According to the booklet that comes with the crate it was going to be 1 of 6 different animals: owl, panda, frog, duck, llama and sheep. I got the sheep…I think xD Either way, it’s still super soft, super warm and super kawaii!

After that were these two super cute Kumamon micro fiber towels. They’re both the same, just one is outlined in blue and the other in pink. 🙂 I’m not sure if I’ll actually use these because they’re really cute and I’d hate to get them dirty 🙁

How cute is this Hoppe-chan at home key chain!? I’m always looking for more key chains to add to my key ring and I think this will fit in perfectly with all of my others!

Okay, so one of the main reasons I ordered this was because I saw there was supposed to be a Kiki’s Delivery Service item in the box and I have to admit, this is an adorable toothbrush but I was a bit disappointed when that was the item. 😦

The last item was this super cute Hello Kitty toothbrush holder! I am absolutely using this one! I’ve been looking for a good replacement for mine and haven’t been able to find any I like so this was just perfect!

Based upon this, I was very satisfied with what I received and kept my subscription for October! I’m hoping it will be filled with lots of super cute Halloween goodies!

Do you guys get any subscription boxes? If so, which ones? If not, which ones would you ever want to try? Let me know here or on facebook! Thanks for reading!

Anime Crush

Hi, hi! Welcome to day 7 of the anime challenge! (Okay, I’m wayyyy behind guys! Sorry, I had some stuff come up 😕 )Today’s topic is: Anime crush!

…oh man, these are hard. 😩

However, I suppose the benefit of a crush as opposed to a husbando or waifu means that I don’t necessarily NEED to know a lot about them, right? I do actually have one in mind though that I don’t think I’ve ever talked about.

Tachikawa Mimi from Digimon has always been one. Not like season 1 cowgirl Mimi though.

**This post may contain affiliate links. You can find the disclosure policy here.**

I really enjoyed all of her later designs though. This one was probably one I prefer more though:

What I really love about Mimi is that in the first season she started off really whiny but as the series has gone on she has matured so much. Not only that though, she also does her very best, no matter what, to make sure that everyone is happy and getting along.

She also wants to make sure that everyone is included in the fun when the whole group is doing something together.

She has a very strong bond with her Digimon as well. I’ve seen her in several episodes put herself in harms way just to protect her Digimon. I would say that Palmon and Gatomon are two of my favorite Digimon!

Anime I Want To See But Haven’t Yet

Hi, hi! Welcome to day 6 of the anime challenge! Today’s topic is: Anime I want to see but haven’t yet.

What?

One? I have such a huge list of anime that I want to watch D: I’ll just go for that and post a small list! Maybe some of you have seen them and can tell me if they’re worth watching!

**This post may contain affiliate links. You can find the disclosure policy here.**

In no particular order, some of the anime I want to see but haven’t yet are:

  1. Ef- A Tale of Memories/Ef-A Tale of Melodies

    I don’t know too much about these at all but I do think the art style is absolutely gorgeous! <3
  2. Konosuba
    This one has been recommended to me by a friend and I really want to watch it but I just haven’t gotten around to it yet. 🙁
    Just from what I’m seeing, I think she’ll be my favorite. :3

    She’s super cute too though!
  3. K-ON!

    I actually started this one a while back but the disc was messed up. I’d really like to go back to it soon. It looks super cute and innocent.
  4. Cowboy Bebop

    I actually cannot believe I haven’t seen this one yet. It looks like something I’d love in all honesty.
  5. Azumanga Daioh

    I’ve seen so many clips from this one and I’ve also heard it’s a fantastic slice of life anime and with that being my favorite genre of anime, I think I’ll absolutely need to sit down and watch this one soon.

Those are just a few of the anime that are toward the top of my ‘to watch’ list. Would you recommend any of these? And what anime do you really want to watch but haven’t yet? Let me know here or on facebook! Thanks for reading!

Anime I’m Ashamed I’ve Enjoyed

Hi, hi! Welcome to day 5 of the anime challenge! Today’s topic is: Anime You’re Ashamed You Enjoyed.

Okay, so, in all honesty, I cannot think of an anime that I can say I’m ashamed to have watched. HOWEVER, I can say there is a manga series that I’ve read that I would not normally go around telling everyone that I’ve read so I’ll go with that.

That manga would be: After School Nightmare.

It was written by Setona Mizushiro and originally published in Princess magazine.

**This post may contain affiliate links. You can find the disclosure policy here.**

 

SPOILERS AHEAD

The main reason I hadn’t gone around telling anyone that I’d read it was because I read it when I was in 9th or 10th grade and it’s…interesting.

It’s been a long time since I’ve read it, but from what I remember it’s about a character, Mashiro Ichijo, who is neither male nor female. Everyone assumes Mashiro is a male, however, what people do not know is that while Mashiro has the upper body of a male, he has the lower body of a female.

The manga is about Mashiro’s journey in a dream world in which the goal of graduation for Mashiro is to decide weather he wants to live out his life as a male or female. This decision is influenced heavily on weather Mashiro wants to date a promiscuous male, Sou Mizuhashi or Kureha Fujishima, a female who has a strong distrust of men due to her past.

Throughout the series, the reader also gets to see a lot of issues that other characters are dealing with as well as well as getting to find out if each character graduates by finding their true selves.

I really should go back and read it some time. I really did enjoy it. The only reason I would’ve been embarrassed to tell anyone back when i actually read it was that I lived in a very small town so it would have been blown out of proportion. People would’ve said I was reading ‘porn’ and stuff like that and it just wasn’t worth the hassle.

It is a great manga and I would highly recommend it to anyone that’s interested in this sort of genre!

Is there an anime or manga that you’re embarrassed that you enjoyed? You don’t have to let me know which ones, but I’d be interested to see how many yes’ and no’s there would be! :3 Let me know here or on facebook! Thanks for reading!

Favorite Female Character

Hi, hi! Welcome to day four of the anime challenge! Today’s topic is: Favorite Female Character!

This one is easy for me. I mean there are SO MANY wonderful female anime characters out there to choose from and I have many favorites. But there is one girl who holds my heart.

Akemi Homura from Puella Magi Madoka Magica is my absolute favorite anime girl ever. She’s gorgeous, elegant (or clumsy depending on which timeline), and she’s a true friend.

SPOILERS AHEAD

**This post may contain affiliate links. You can find the disclosure policy here.**

——————————————————————————–

A lot of people hate on Homura so hard because of what happens to her but I see it from the other stand point. She basically gave up her entire life and soul in order to try to protect her best friend dying. That to me is the ultimate sacrifice.

Rebellion makes her out to be the villain but it’s not her fault in any way. I mean, yes, she made the wish to repeat time until she could save Madoka but she had no idea it would turn out the way it did and that the same thing would happen every single time.

Unfortunately, she really got stuck with a ‘die a hero or live long enough to see yourself become the villain’ situation. 🙁

To me, that makes her best girl and top tier waifu material. I honestly could go on and on about Homura but I think I’ll leave it at that since I’ve already given her a nice Waifu Wednesday post. 🙂
