50 Questions Tenchi Edition

Hello there my lovely readers. I hope you are having a wonderful week. I know sometimes that isn’t possible given some real world issues. But hopefully something positive is happening or going to happen soon to you. If not…buy some ice cream. Ice cream has known healing powers, even if it is only slight in nature.

For a few weeks now I have noticed that some bloggers I follow have posted a 50 question article about themselves. The 50 questions are a mix of anime and personal questions and originated on the blog run by Ace Railgun. At first I thought 50 questions was a lot and reading each blog post that popped up on my roll would take forever. But I found they all made for quick and fun reads. While I don’t know any of these people personally it was interesting to read about other anime bloggers. I think sometimes we forget people on the internets ARE people and exist outside the realm of anime and manga. That SHOCKINGLY there are other things that make up their identity and what not.


Happiest sheep EVER!

So being the little sheep that I am I decided to take part in this mass blogging post. XD Sheeps are cute yes? So let the questions roll. Although I think readers might know a lot about me already with my tendency to over share…..

Pictures stolen from all over the internets!

Questions About Anime

1.Who is your favorite male anime character?


XO These questions start off hard. Maybe Nezumi from No. 6? He had great development as a character. He starts off as a cold, rough person given his terrible past. Overtime he learns to be more like Shion, hoping for a better future and that being a kind hearted person has nothing to do with being a door mat. I suppose one could say that I picked him because he is a gay character. And maybe that is true. But the way he is presented is in a super positive way. Most shows that have gay characters in them present the character in an over the top fashion. Yes some gay males are over the top but that gives people a skewed view of what gays are like. With Nezumi I think his story reached a larger audience, showing people that gays are just like straight people in regards to their feelings and that their relationship wasn’t all about getting in bed and what not. I hope I am wording this right X_x

2. Who is your favorite female character?


This is too adorable for words!

I have to pick just one? For the longest time it was Lita from Sailor Moon. Is my horrible dubbing showing? XD But she was strong, a great friend, a mostly useful member of the team, and great a lot of things. Sure she was a little boy crazy but what teenage girl isn’t? She had fun with Serena without being a BITCH to her all the time but brought the serious when need be.

But now…..I might have to pick Mugi from K-On! She is so adorable! I know the rich girl not knowing the plight of the average man CAN be annoying but Mugi does it in a way that is not degrading or rude. Plus how can I not love a girl who gives sweets to her friends every day? She has an eagerness about her that makes the mundane tasks of life fun but she isn’t loopy in the brain. She can take a joke and gives them out in a light hearted manner. Yay moe blobs?

3. What is your favorite anime soundtrack?

This one doesn’t really apply to me. I don’t buy or listen to anime soundtracks. I mainly skip opening and ending songs unless I really like them.

4 and 5. What is your favorite anime opening/ending song + animation?

This changes all the time based on when new animes come out. I think for the opening I would have to go with Spiral from Blood C. For the ending I will go with Magia from Mahou Shoujo Madoka Magica.

6. What is your favorite anime scene?

Currently it is the scene from Black Rock Shooter when Yomi loses her mind and attacks a cellphone. But that is because I am evil. Maybe when Yui from K-On! cut her bangs wrong and all the girls freaked out. Reminds me of fun times in high school. Really this is a hard question X__X.

7. If you could meet an anime character who would it be?


Well this isn't Lelouch...but maybe she has the answers?!

Lelouch from Code Geass. I would be like Dude put it to rest, are you dead or not in the final episode?

8. What anime character is most similar to you in terms of personality?

Err…maybe Rei from High School of the Dead? Minus the athletic ability and running around practically naked. She tries to be a badass at times but deep down she wants to be protected. She is harsh and opinionated but is loyal to her friends. She is quick to blame but will eventually apologize if she is at fault. I don’t know, she seems like a weird choice. Can’t I think of someone who isn’t stuck in the zombie apocalypse. Kyou from Clannad maybe?

9. What is your favorite thing about anime?

That if one season is full of meh shows maybe next season there will be many awesome ones. There is always something new going on in the anime world and plenty to pick from. 25 new titles, at least one you will like.

10. What is your least favorite thing about anime?

That animes are made from mangas that aren’t complete. I mean I understand why it has to be that way as some mangas don’t end FOR YEARS but sometimes this leads to random and out of character endings. Oh and over the top fanservice.

11. Who are your favorite anime couple?


Cousins sorry. I meant my favorite COUSINS!

Well one could argue that Fai and Kurogane are really more a manga couple…let me think. Maybe Michuri and Haruka from Sailor Moon. Wish they got more screen time though.

12. Who is your favorite anime animal?

I am not sure what kind of animal Mokona is but she/he is super fun. But in real life I would love to own an Eevee type. Probably a Leafeon.

13. What anime would make a good game?

I am not very up to date on games so I hope I don’t make a silly mistake like listing something that is already a game. Maybe we could turn Mirai Nikki into a fun game of Clue?

14. What game would make a good anime?

I am not much of a gamer. I do play Pokemon and a few other games…but they already came from shows. Err The Resident Evil games? I like zombies! XD

15. What was the first anime you ever watched?

I didn’t know it at the time but Sailor Moon. It came on super early in the mornings before school and then it disappeared for a while. All I could remember the dancing silhouettes in the opening. XD

16. Do you think you’ll ever stop watching anime?

I don’t know. I know I don’t plan on having kids and I imagine I will have jobs similar to the one I have now (retail and otherwise). So I doubt time will ever be an issue. There was a time in the past where all I watched as anime but then I got really into an online game and anime took a back seat. So I can see that happening again but I think no matter how long the break is I will continue to watch anime. That was a long answer for No.

17. What is your favorite genre of anime?

I don’t think I really have a type. I like some sci-fi shows, some slice of life, some mysteries, and a few fightings. I guess for me the art and story are more important than a specific type. But I guess I do like shows that have element of magic and supernatural in it.

18. What is your least favorite genre of anime?

Hentai? Mainly because I am a hypocrite. Maybe if the boobs weren’t so HUGE it would be a different story. Also I am not a real fan of shows that have long drawn out battles that never EVER end. But for some reason I made it through DBZ. Well up to the Cell Years.

19. Are you open about watching anime with people you know?

Maybe. I tend to watch anime on my computer so it might be hard to do with other people. I have watched anime with people I know in the past at anime conventions…with hundreds of other people. I tend to want to watch anime alone though so I can pause and yell at the screen at ease.

20. Have you ever been to Japan?

Yes. May 5th to May 30th 2011. I blogged about 948234 posts about it if you are interested in spending a million hours on the internet.

21. What anime was the biggest let down for you?

Right now that would be Guilty Crown. I was fooled along with everyone else in the blogging world. But I generally stop watching shows that are horrible train wrecks. Although I do remember hating Vampire Knight with a passion.

22. What anime was better then expected?

For me that would be Clannad. I saw that other people were talking about how awesome it was and I thought well…I will give it a whirl just because everyone else is doing it. I had MEH expectations going into it so it really surprised me when it turned out to be a really cool show. I am not sure if this counts though as I read it was going to be a good show…

23. What is the best anime fight scene?


Well I guess it technically wasn't Queen Beryl...

Sometimes fight scenes bore me so I have to really think about this one. Also are we talking about fighting like swords clashing and fists flying or can it be magic? In any event I am going to go with Princess Serenity verses Queen Beryl.

24. Who is your anime waifu?


He needs a bit of fashion help though.

If I was a lesbian or a dude I think I would pick Mugi from K-On!! She is enough crazy to have a good time with but serious enough I wouldn’t be embarrassed by her antics. That and who needs a wife who can cook when her family can buy me a personal chef?

If I were to rephrase the question and answer the question who would be my anime husband…I would have to think about that. I tend to see things through yaoi colored glasses….Um…Seiya from Sailor Moon Stars? If I ignore the horrible fashion choices and the fact that I picked another girl…he seems like a fun yet capable dude.

MOG I totally forgot about Saito from Hakuouki! Yes I would marry him…if he learned to talk a little bit more. XD

25. What was your favorite video game as a child?

Golden Sun? But my brothers and I played a Mario game together a lot when we were younger. I forget the name of it but it had a marshmallow frog and a giant sword and 5 power ranger like baddies near the end.

Questions About Me

26. Most Embarrassing moment?

I tripped and fell in front of a large group of people once. I guess that is more interesting than the typical MOG period moment every girl has at least once in her life.

27a. Can you drive?

I can drive a standard car. Not a stick shift.

27b. Do you own a car?

Yes. A pizza mobile.

28. Are you mature?

In some cases yes and some cases no. I try to be in serious moments or at work but at home my husband and I cut up a lot. I try not to let my “immature” fun bother other people though (IE not throwing water balloons at people off balconies at people and what not).

29. What year were you born?


About as old as this video.

1983. Approximately a million years before most people answering this question.

30. Do you prefer cats or dogs?

Cats. I am not fond of most dogs, especially big ones. It is amazing how every single dog owner out there says OH they won’t bite. AMAZING.

31. Describe yourself physically.

5 feet 4 inches tall with thigh long hair. “Slender” except in the “bottom” area. XD “ “ indeed. Oh and apparently "slightly" Mexican.

32. What would you name your first child?


33. What is the worst injury you have ever had?

I got a nasty foot infection in 7th grade. Well maybe not so nasty since I was fine like a week later. I have been blessed so far in life.

34. What is your worst habit?

Talking too much. I hate it when things are quiet and people are in a room. Heck I hate it when I am alone and it is quiet. But then I start talking way too much which people seem to hate. Need to work on that or so I have been told.

35. Do you drink or smoke?

No. One because I think smoking smells horrible and I am a total light weight when it comes to drinking. B I rather spend all that money on things I can KEEP not throw away.

36. Do you have a tattoo?

No. I am highly allergic to pain.

37. Are you a morning person or a night person?

HAHAHAHA! What a silly question. Night person. Well does being up til 3 am count?

38. Have you ever slept past midday

I am not sure what midday counts as. But I am going to answer yes.

39. Do you regret anything?

Yessie. Hopefully I learn from them.

40. Can you count the number of friends you have on one hand?

Close friends yes.

41. Do you wear glasses?

Yes. Have since 4th grade. My parents bought me the ugliest pair in the entire store so I only wore them to see the black board. Then in 9th grade I broke them on purpose so I could get an ADULT pair. Losers. Then after high school I gave up and started wearing them all day.

42. Are you a picky eater?


.....Where was the McDonalds again?

HAHAHA! That would be a yes. But my brother is way worse.

43. Would you die for someone?

I think I would die TRYING to protect someone and myself. But I am not going to throw myself on a grenade for someone. I rather go out trying to save us both.

44. If you could have any superpower, what would it be?

I don’t think pooping out $100 bills counts. I would probably want to fly since I am late all the time. Although I am afraid of heights. Maybe the power to read people’s minds so I can tell when people are lying or not.

45. Do you believe in the supernatural?

I do believe in God so it is hard to answer that question while avoiding the lightening. But I do think there are things in this world that can’t be explained away by science or known facts.

46. Would you rather be rich or famous?


47. Have you ever committed a crime.

Well I speed every single day. But I think everyone does that so maybe that doesn’t count. I hit someone’s car in a parking lot and drove off once. Of course I was there first and when I went to leave they were parked WAY over the line and in my parking spot…

48. Pirates or ninjas?


See? Much better outfits!

Ninjas. Sometimes pirates have questionable outfits and being wet all the time would get old.

49. Does someone have a crush on you?

I hope not.

50. Are you in a relationship?

Yes going on 11 years now.

XD So that is my take on the 50 questions that are making the rounds on different anime blogs. Hoped you enjoyed getting to know me. XD


Kencana said...

Agree with you about Guilty Crown. I want to punch most of the character in that series (expect Tsugumi, Daryl and Ayase)

Eternia said...

But Daryl was crazy about Tony Stark on last week's episode, and turned into a crappy IronMan imitation.
I really want to punch them all, so that even their own moms can't recoqnize them. The blonde bitch Arisa, crazy mom Haruka, bastard friend Yahiro and Souta, the mahou shoujo wanna-be Gai 2.0, crazy eyebrow kid and Keido, and our Jesus : Shuu, and those nameless backstabbing school mates, and those nameless horny dog who slept with Arisa.
The list is too long.
The only exception is Tsugumi and Ayase. One more episode to go, I hope they remain like-able character. Oh, please, don't make them have threesome with Gai; you crazy author who's high on drugs.

Christina said...

Kencana- Guilty Crown is a beautiful piece of crap. Like a lovely cake you can't wait to eat but then you realize it is made of seaweed and cat litter. The frosting mislead us all!

Eternia- I think people like Tsugumi seems likable only because we don't know much about her. X__X Like she jumps around computer screens and has cat ears on. But given the rest of the cast the cute purple hair girl IS looking pretty good.

Ayase actually felt bad for Shu and appeared to have a soul. So I can see how she became so popular with fans. She got over wanted Gai's crystal penis really fast. XD

I love how every one of these characters has done something REALLY BAD but it is Shu, the person almost all the character did the REALLY BAD THING TO, who has to suffer. Yay for horrible people!

Also I think I might change my disappointing answer to Blood-C. I was actually super excited about that show and know.

Gatx375 said...

The only character's I could stand in Guilty Crown were Segai and Rowan. Well for Rowan at least until the final episode. Why the hell he died for Daryl I have no idea. But yeah that show sucks.

I lol'd on what would you name your first child, "Mistake?". That's probably what I'd name my first kid too.

Christina said...

Gatx375- Poor Rowan. I guess being exposed to all that crazy did him in. Maybe he had the sparkle cancer in his brain or something because that was an insane decision he made.

Ah kids. Tiny expensive creatures that grow up and hate you later in life. YAY FOR PETS XD
