Favorite Anime Animal Sidekick/Pet

Hi, hi! Welcome to day 15 of the Anime Challenge! Today’s topic is: Favorite Anime Animal Sidekick or Pet!

This one is super easy for me! I really enjoy the cats from Sailor Moon and I’d say that Digimon and Pokemon qualify for this too BUT my absolute favorite animal sidekick/pet is Ryo Ohki from the Tenchi series! 😁

Who doesn’t love a cute cat rabbit (cabbit?) that can transform into a spaceship?!

I loved watching Sasami become close to Ryo Ohki. <3

Anime Character You’re Most Similar To

Hi, hi! Welcome to day 13 of the Anime Challenge! Today’s topic is: Anime character you’re most similar to!

I think this one is a really fun one! I would say I’m a mix between two anime characters. It’s funny though because those characters have completely different personalities.

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

When it comes to certain people, close friends and my husband, I would say I’m more tsundere and the tsundere character I feel that I relate to the most is Aisaka Taiga from Toradora!

I feel that I am a lot like Taiga because I don’t take compliments well and I can get very defensive easily. I also love food and can’t cook well. 😅

The other character I feel that I am most similar to is Kamikita Komari from Little Busters!

No good person likes to see someone feel down. I always do my best to try to make it better for them in any way. I feel that if you always smile at people, you could make their day and not even know it.

I know if I’m having a bad day and someone takes just a moment to notice me and to smile at me it makes my day brighter.

Another thing that makes me similar to Komari is our love of sweets! I could seriously just eat candy, cakes, and donuts all day, every day!

Komari is also a bit clumsy and silly and I know I’m super clumsy and I try to be silly so that everyone around me can have fun.

Do you have any characters you feel that you are similar to?

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!

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?’

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

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!

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 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!
