First off I want to say sorry for not posting in so long.. I get very overwhelmed with work and general life that its hard for me to get in the right headspace at times. That being said my motivation is back and I am going to try my best to post a couple times a week! I am excited to get back into the anime/manga blogging world and meet some more amazing people along the way.
I seen this tag from @teaberrix or http://eveningteamusings.wordpress.com and thought it would be a great way to get back into writing with a fun tag.
- FAVORITE ANIME OF ALL TIME
If you have read my previous posts or watched any of my youtube videos you will know how obsessed with this anime and manga I am. The dynamic characters and storytelling is unmatched and it is an absolute 10/10.
2. WORST ANIME
Goblin Slayer. Honestly this was a hard choice because I usually only watch things I am pretty confident I will like or drop it very shortly to the point I do not remember which anime I have watched and hated. I watched all of season one of goblin slayer and enjoyed it enough while watching but looking back was just a very meh anime. Definitely not the worst thing out there but one of my least favorite I have watched for sure.
3. READ THE MANGA ALONG WITH THE ANIME?
The answer is yes and no. I personally collect manga and enjoy it more than anime at the moment, however it is rare that I both read the manga and watch the anime to that manga. Vinland Saga and Death note are exceptions however usually when I read the manga the anime disappoints me… haha There are also many instances like Dr. Stone or Demon Slayer where I prefer to just watch the anime.
4. FAVORITE GENRE
Seinen! I love dark, psychological, and mature themes so Seinen is what I search for and eat up. I want something to completely draw me in and fuck up all my emotions. Leave recommendations below! Fantasy would be second..
5. LEAST FAVORITE GENRE
Slice of life… I understand why many people love slice of life but as you have read from my favorite genre I enjoy things that challenge my mind and make me think which is the complete opposite of slice of life. It’s like Naruto filler but every episode! (I am asking for hate on that one lol). I love sports and even some sport anime bores me because it feels too slice of life. Romance is another genre I do not care for at all. Maybe my mind will change one day but not anytime soon.
6. FAVORITE CHARACTER
My boy light. Very basic and I have sooo many characters that could be number 1 so I will make a top 10 in one of my upcoming posts. That being said Light literally changed the way I view anime and anytime I want to turn someone into a weeb I show them Death Note and it never fails so Light will always be number 1.
7. LEAST FAVORITE CHARACTER
My least favorite character is possibly a controversial opinion but Akane from Psycho Pass angered me to the point of dropping the anime. That says a lot because I feel this anime is right up my alley and really enjoyed most aspects of it but Akane ruined it.. Her constant need to follow orders and do the right thing even while watching her friend die instead of saving her life made me rage. She constantly put everyone around her in danger because of her stupid actions and all everyone did was tell her she did the right thing…. It angers me even now she beat out Danzo and that’s saying a lot so lets move on please.
8. QUALITIES YOU LIKE IN A CHARACTER
My favorite characters tend to be male and ones who have many levels. They may seem evil or like an asshole at first but you dig deeper and find an amazing person. Dark sense of humor is also a quality I am drawn too. But for the most part I will be more drawn to the villian or bad boy character than the protagonist.
9. SHORT OR LONG ANIME?
The simple answer is both! It all depends on the mood I am in and how good the anime is. Sometimes I want to deep dive into a long anime and ready to binge the whole month while others I want a 12 episode complete anime. I would say in general I like 24 or so episodes but if its good, long or short I will watch.
10. ANIME OR MANGA
Team manga all the way! Even that picture brings me pure happiness. This is coming from someone who did not think she would like manga at all so give it a try if you are unsure.
11. HOW YOU CHOOSE AN ANIME
As said before it all depends on my mood. Sometimes I want a more upbeat action packed shounen or sometimes I want a complete depressing mind fuck. It’s weird but I just get a feeling and I know when the right time to watch a certain show is or to wait until I can enjoy it fully. Sometimes its very frustrating when I can’t seem to find the right anime but I feel it happens to all of us. How do you guys decide which anime to watch next? I am very curious.
12. LISTEN OR SKIP OP/ED
So I sadly admit that I skip 90% of openings and 100% endings. I am impatient and I want to get to the show I am sorry. I always watch the opening of the first episode of an anime then I usually skip unless I really enjoy the opening or I really love the anime and want every piece of it. Endings I never watch.
13. HOW TO COPE WITH FRIENDS/FAMILY DISLIKING ANIME
Well the picture speaks for itself… 😉 No but there are a few ways to go about this.
- Turn them from a hater to a weeb. I have succeeded in this a few times and will write a post showing how.
- Find friends online who do enjoy anime, what we are all doing right now. My bio on instagram is “None of my friends watch anime so I turned to the internet”.
- Just deal with it and know that they are the ones missing out. But if they make fun of you see picture above
14. STOP MIDWAY THROUGH AN ANIME IF YOU DISLIKE IT?
100% yes for me I have done it many times. All I think about is the amazing anime I could be watching instead of suffering through a certain anime. Yes it may get better but I at least put it on hold and watch things that are exciting to me.
Thank you for reading! Comment your answers below I had a really fun time making this post and I am very excited to post more often!
