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!

 

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

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!

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 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!

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?

Waifu Wednesday – Aisaka Taiga

I used to absolutely hate the tsundere type. Every time I watched an anime with a girl that was tsundere they were always a side character (Yes, I know there are plenty with Tsun MC’s but I hadn’t seen them at that point). Being a side character, you don’t get to see that other sweet side of them. When I watched Toradora my opinion of the tsundere type changed completely.

Definition of Tsundere

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

Taiga Aisaka, also known as the palmtop tiger, is short and full of rage if the wrong thing is said to her. Her fuse is extremely short. I noticed a lot of similarities between Taiga and myself and I think that is part of what made me grow to like her so much. I think that’s another reason I find her to be such a fun and interesting character. However, she is also super sweet and loving to the people closest to her.

Toradora is a fantastic slice of life anime about friendship and love. If you haven’t seen it yet, I highly recommend it. It is both dubbed and subbed and the dubbed version was done extremely well in my opinion.

Waifu Wednesday – Amagi Yukiko

Generally, when people think of ‘waifus’ they automatically think about anime, however, I feel that they could be from video games as well, especially the JRPG style ones. Today, my post is about my favorite character from the Persona 4 series, Yukiko Amagi- 天城 雪子.

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

Yukiko Amagi is a character in the Persona 4 series who is the daughter of the owners of a famous inn (ryokan) in the fictional town (Inaba) that Persona 4 is set in. She is the next in line to run the inn even though she isn’t sure that she wants that sort of responsibility.

She is known in the game for her terrible cooking. She is very quiet but blunt when she speaks. She is also has a habit of finding humor in difficult situations helping the rest of the Investigation Team to lighten up a bit. She is a potential love interest of the main character in Persona 4 and Persona 4 Golden.

She also appears in Persona 3 Portable when the characters of the game take a trip to Inaba, Persona Q: Shadow of the Labyrinth, Persona 4 Arena, Persona 4 Arena Ultimax and Persona 4: Dancing All Night as well as the Persona 4 animation.

Who would you consider your waifu (or husbando) from a video game to be? ^.^

Waifu Wednesday – Kamikita Komari

Hi, hi! Welcome to another Waifu Wednesday! Today, I decided to post about one of my favorite characters from Little Busters! Komari Kamikita. I adore Komari for many different reasons. She is sweet, an amazing friend, loves sweets, she’s adorable and so much more! (I even ran a Komari Kamikita page on facebook as well and I used that as an admin tag on the Key Studios Community page on facebook when I was still an admin there! If you are a fan of the works that Key does such as Clannad, Air, Kanon, Little Busters!, Planetarian, Rewrite and Angel Beats! You should go check out those pages! ^_^)

I won’t say too much though because I don’t want to give away too much about the series/visual novel. I will say this though, I have a list of anime characters that I feel make amazing friends to other characters and she is one of them!
