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 season 1 cowgirl Mimi though.

I really enjoyed all of Mimi’s 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.

Wait. What?

One? I have such a huge list of anime that I want to watch. 😞 I’ll just go for that and post a small list! Maybe some of you have seen them and can tell me if they are 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 will 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. I have also heard it’s a fantastic slice of life anime. 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.

After School Nightmare 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 After School Nightmare. 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. The goal of graduation for Mashiro is to decide weather he wants to live out his life as a male or female.

Mashiro’s decision is heavily influenced by deciding if he 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. The reader also will get 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 After School Nightmare was that I lived in a very small town. It would have been blown out of proportion. People would have said I was reading ‘porn’ and stuff like that and it just wasn’t worth the hassle.

After School Nightmare 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. I would 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 4 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. 🙂

Favorite Male Character

Hi, hi! Welcome to day 3 of the anime challenge! Today’s topic is: Favorite Male Character!

This one is actually really difficult for me because I don’t really relate to any of the male characters or have never found any of them interesting enough to go out of my way to talk about.

The hardest part about these challenges though is that when I find them, they don’t come with any rules? Do traps even count!?

Okay, so I would say my favorite male anime character is one that’s not in high school like a good amount of anime characters out there. He’s actually a father, though he may not look like it. It’s Furukawa Akio from Clannad!

SPOILERS AHEAD

 

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

Akio is so many things. He’s energetic, a loving husband and father, encouraging, funny, a great baker, an actor and much more.

He did everything to encourage Nagisa to pursue her dreams.

However, not only did he encourage his daughter to pursue her dreams, he was also there as a father figure to Fuuko, Tomoya and Ushio.

The relationship he has with his wife, Sanae,  is just amazing as well. They get along so well and are just so adorable to watch. He is willing to eat her bread no matter how horrible it tastes just to show his love for her.

And of course, who could ever forget, he’s the MC Akio!

Favorite Anime So Far

Hi, hi! Welcome to day 2 of the anime challenge! Today’s topic is: Favorite Anime So Far!

This is a really, really tough one. I always have a difficult time picking favorites because there are different things that I like about each show or genre that really aren’t comparable to each other.

I suppose if I have to pick just one for the sake of this post, I’ll go with Toradora.

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

I absolutely love slice of life style anime so this one was not hard at all for me to get into once I started watching it.

This anime had so much character development and so much emotion running from some of the characters that made it easy to connect with them and to grow to love or hate them . There is a good amount of humor in it as well which was great. The anime balanced the humor well with everything else that went on throughout the show.

I really enjoyed most of the characters as well. They all had their own personalities that were all completely different but went together well with the personalities of their friends. It was also nice to see an anime in which characters started out as enemies so to speak that were able to become closer as the anime progressed.

I’d say that this anime also produced 2 of my favorite anime characters of all time.

I really grew to love Aisaka Taiga because she actually reminds me a bit of myself with her ‘tsundere’ attitude.

I remember when I was younger being comparable to a tsundere because I didn’t know how to express my emotions well or how to take compliments. Because of this, I was easily able to relate to Taiga and to sympathize with her as well.

My other favorite character would be Kushieda Minori. I absolutely love her perky personality as well as her love and dedication to her best friend, Taiga. She would and does do anything for Taiga.

I love her personality because I wish I was as perky and motivated as her. In all honesty, I’m kind of lazy! But I can absolutely relate to her in the way she would do anything for Taiga. I would do anything for my best friend as well!

The story and art for this anime are fantastic as well. I feel that the story was very well done  and not rushed at all like a lot of other shows out there. I feel like it was given an appropriate amount of time to come to completion.

I do feel like the end of it could have been expanded on a bit more or that they could have shown a bit more in the ending credits or in a special epilogue episode or something. That also leaves a lot for the imagination though, I suppose.

The last thing about this anime that I’d like to talk about is one of my all time favorite anime songs came from Toradora! It’s a Christmas song but I love it so much that it’s actually my ringtone all year round. (It also gives me a good excuse to watch it every winter!)

What is your all time favorite anime? Let me know here or on Facebook! Thanks for reading!

First Anime I Ever Watched

Hi, hi! I decided it would be fun to do a 30 day anime challenge! I’ll be answering these questions:

The very first anime that I saw was Sailor Moon!

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

I don’t exactly remember the very first time that I saw it but I do remember always talking about it to my friends and making sure to watch it with every opportunity I had.

I also remember wanting to be Sailor Moon EVERY Halloween. I would beg my mom to drive an hour to the next city every time I had money to buy the dolls from KB Toys and I managed to snatch up the one Sailor Moon book that somehow showed up at our school book giveaway. (I actually still have this book xD).

Sailor Moon is still an anime I love and will watch over and over again. There is so much to it. Throughout the seasons, and even the movies, there is so much character development. I laughed with the characters and I cried with them. I even looked up to them as I didn’t have any role models in the real world.

I always loved the art style as well. I will say, however, I’m not a huge fan of the new art style for Sailor Moon Crystal. I think it’s beautiful in itself but in all honesty, I think it’s a bit too elegant for Usagi’s clumsy nature.

What was the first anime you ever watched? Let me know here or on Facebook!

Waifu Wednesday – Karasuma Chitose

Hi, hi! Welcome to Waifu Wednesday! Today’s waifu is Karasuma Chitose!

I’m a sucker for slice of life and comedy anime. I enjoy many other types but when I just want to unwind or when I’m trying to multitask it’s nice to have something simple that I can turn on. Girlish Number is one that I’ve been watching recently.

Typically, I see slice of life as school kids, but it is so nice to find something that’s actually about the anime industry itself.

Karasuma Chitose is a voice actress within the anime industry. The anime however, shows the voice acting side, the business side and the consumer side of the industry.

However, the reason that Chitose is waifu material in my eyes is she has the perfect reaction faces. I’ve got 2 folders on my PC solely for the moments in which I need the perfect reaction and emoji just can’t do it.

I feel she also embodies most people in the way that she will react in the appropriate manner in front of the right people but when she turns her head or is alone she quickly gives the responses that most of us really feel in uncomfortable situations or situations we don’t agree with.

 

This one’s probably my favorite! Source
I <3 her in glasses Source
This style is too cute!! Source

That face though xD Source

Have you seen Girlish Number? Let me know here, on facebook, or discord! If you’ve seen it, did you enjoy it? If not, is it on your ‘to watch’ list?

I finished Persona 5 about a month or two ago and my original love interest of the game was Niijima Makoto but after I had Futaba join my group and I started learning more about her I quickly changed gears.

Futaba is super cute and super witty and I just love her so much! I love that I can relate to her and her love of video games and her love of figures too!

I seriously cannot wait to get this figure! You can also use this code to get 5% off if you pre-order hereMOE-WQR-AX1U27

Waifu Wednesday – Megurine Luka

Hi, hi! Welcome again to Waifu Wednesday!! Today’s waifu is Megurine Luka!

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

Let me start off by saying again, yes, I know Vocaloids are not anime characters so please just remember that my blog is about a variety of things.

I find it extremely interesting how the Vocaloid program has brought out so many visual artists as well as musical artists. What’s even more fascinating to me is that each character seems to have built up their own identity based upon how the artists viewed them.

For example, you will often see videos of a romantic relationship between Megurine Luka and Hatsune Miku, or another one that I’ve noticed is that a lot of the songs made for Kagamine Rin seem to be dark. There are plenty of light hearted ones as well but from what I’ve seen her personality has been made to be a bit dark, even within the Project Diva games.

I’ve listened to a wide variety of Vocaloid characters and I can say without a doubt that Megurine Luka is my absolute favorite. Her voice seems to appeal to me a bit more as does her style. I also enjoy the fact that she is a bilingual vocaloid so I can enjoy some of her songs in my native language, English.

I’ve also found Vocaloid videos to be extremely useful in my Japanese studies for learning Hiragana and Katakana as most Vocaloid videos will have the lyrics written in Japanese so as you learn the characters you can start to follow along.

For this post I will post a few pictures and a few of my favorite Megurine Luka songs as well!
