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.

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 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!

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

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- Fujibayashi Kyou

Hi, hi! Welcome to another Waifu Wednesday! Today’s waifu is Fujibayashi Kyou from the visual novel and anime Clannad!

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

I honestly didn’t like Kyou very much in the beginning. I liked her a bit more as the anime went on and then after I watched her special episode and played her route in the visual novel, I fell in love with her. She’s fantastic! I would say she’s the character that got me to like the Tsundere style character more. Her theme is also super upbeat and fun.

Twin Tail Day- 2/2

The Japanese government has officially designated February 2nd as twin-tail day. I want to share some of my favorite anime themed characters with twin-tails! I say themed because some of my favorite artwork may not be from any specific anime but they may be from video games or even Vocaloid characters which are drawn in anime style.

My list is in no particular order and may also have some characters which don’t always have twin-tails or may not have full twin-tails but partial, but in my mind they still count. =^_^=

Let’s do this!

  1. Usagi Tsukino/ Serena Tsukino from the Sailor Moon Series

    Usagi Tsukino not only was the first character with twin-tails that I had ever seen but she was also the heroine in the first anime that I had ever seen. However, I started off with the original North American airing of Sailor Moon by DiC not the original Japanese or the new Sailor Moon Crystal. Either way though, I still really enjoyed the series as well as the character.

  2. Homura Akemi from Puella Magi Madoka Magica

    Now, I understand that Homura doesn’t really have twin-tails in some of the timelines but one of my favorite versions of her was when she had the twin-tail braids =^_^= I feel that for her reasoning and resolve in regards to the wish she made to become a magical girl, the moe look suits her very well.

  3. Hatsune Miku Virtual Diva

    Hatsune Miku is not from any anime, however, there are many manga featuring her now as well as plenty of illustrations and figures depicting her in an anime style. She’s super adorable and I really love the music that people create with her voicebank 😀

  4. Hiiragi Kagami from Lucky Star

    Because who doesn’t enjoy a tsundere with twin-tails with a secret passion for yaoi manga!

  5. Primula from Shuffle!

    She is one of my favorite characters from Shuffle! She’s just so darn adorable!

  6. Shizuku Mizutani from My Little Monster

    My Little Monster is by far one of my favorite anime and Shizuku is easily one of my top anime characters. I really enjoyed watching her grow and watching her attitude change.

  7. Callie from the Wii U game Splatoon

  8. Rise Kujikawa from the Persona 4 games

    Rise was easily my second favorite female character from Persona 4 Golden. I really wish she’d been playable in battle though. She will be who I decide to have a relationship with in my second play through in the game. My first choice was Yukiko Amagi :3

  9. Sasami from the Tenchi Muyo series

    Sasami is another one of my first favorite anime characters =^_^= She’s just extremely adorable

  10. Tiara from Shamanic Princess

    This series always amazed me with it’s artwork as well as its music and even though there aren’t many characters, Tiara really stood out. It wasn’t just her hair or her outfit though, it was her personality. This is a series I really need to go back and watch!

There it is! My top 10 anime themed characters with twin tails! I hope you enjoyed it, thanks for reading!

 

Character I Would Most Like To Be

Hi, hi! Welcome to day 5 of the Video Game challenge posts!
Today’s challenge is ‘What character are you most like (or wish you were)? Honestly, I cannot think of a single video game character that I am most like (I can name plenty of anime characters though!), so I decided to opt for which character I would most like to be like.

This is going to sound super silly, but in all honesty, I think the character I would most want to be like is Popuri from Harvest Moon 64.

Harvest Moon 64 is a farming simulation game developed by Victor Interactive Software and published by Natsume.

This is another game I grew up on and could play over and over again. I love the simplicity of it yet the challenges it brings forth . In Harvest Moon 64 you play a male protagonist who moves to a small village to take over his late grandfather’s farm. You build relationships with the people and make friends, build and run your farm by raising crops and animals, expand your home and you can win over one of the 5 girls, Ellie, Maria, Ann, Karen or Popuri, marry her and have a child.

I have two favorite girls in this game, Karen and Popuri, however as much as I like Karen, if I had to pick a character that I wanted to be more, it would be Popuri. She is much more soft spoken, loving, has a great relationship with her parents, is a bit less tsundere, and reminds me a lot of my favorite character, Bernadette, from The Big Bang Theory.

There are many other things I love about Popuri that would make me want to be more like her as well such as, her pink hair, her elegance, her dress, and her love of nature. And most importantly, her pouty face!

What I would enjoy the most is just the simple, quiet life, not being distracted by so many other things and being able to enjoy a peaceful environment.

It’s an older game but it’s worth the play if you enjoy a simple farming simulation game. I actually find it quite relaxing.
