An Anime That I Wish Had Continued (30 Day Anime Challenge, Day 30)

Serious Blogger's Note: I've come to the end of the 30 Day Anime Challenge. My goal was to finish the challenge in exactly 30 days, posting one post each day beginning on January 1st and running through January 30th. It wasn't always easy, to be honest. Real life doesn't time its incidents to one's convenience, after … Continue reading An Anime That I Wish Had Continued (30 Day Anime Challenge, Day 30)

An Anime That I Wished was Real (30 Day Anime Challenge, Day 29)

Stunning visuals, moving music, twisting plots, one-of-a-kind characters: anime. Uproarious comedy, heartrending tragedy, touching romance: anime. Cause for introspection, time for reflection, an underrated media: anime. Human beings have been given the power to create, and we do so regularly. On a smaller scale, we have been granted a power otherwise unique only to God. … Continue reading An Anime That I Wished was Real (30 Day Anime Challenge, Day 29)

My Favorite Quote from Any Anime Character (30 Day Anime Challenge, Day 28)

Much like when I was prompted to pick my favorite male anime character, there is no way that I am picking a singular favorite, so I'll just start listing again. Some quotes that I like are moving or profound. Others are simply bad@$$ or cute, etc. Some I connect with more than others, and so … Continue reading My Favorite Quote from Any Anime Character (30 Day Anime Challenge, Day 28)

Most Bad@$$ Scene From Any Anime Character (30 Day Anime Challenge, Day 27)

Blogger's Note: This post became much more of a discussion on what makes a moment bad@$$ than I had originally intended, rather than being a description of a single incident. Also, you may get tired of me writing the word as "bad@$$," but I don't say it excessively (especially after a point), so I think … Continue reading Most Bad@$$ Scene From Any Anime Character (30 Day Anime Challenge, Day 27)

The Saddest Anime Death (30 Day Anime Challenge, Day 25)

*necessary spoilers (for Clannad and Hakuouki) below* I've mentioned it before, but there are different portrayals of death. Some deaths make you mourn for those left behind, aching and alone. These are the deaths like those of Clannad, in which I felt for the main character, Tomoya, as he struggled through life after loosing his … Continue reading The Saddest Anime Death (30 Day Anime Challenge, Day 25)

The Moment that Shocked Me the Most (20 Day Anime Challenge, Day 24)

Tamaki: Haruhi? Haruhi: Yeah? Soooo, you're a girl? Biologically speaking, yeah. -Ouran HS Host Club, Ep. 1 Truly, I had no idea what Ouran High School Host Club was about when my friend had me watch it, and going into it without any sort of plot synopsis had me fully convinced that Haruhi was a … Continue reading The Moment that Shocked Me the Most (20 Day Anime Challenge, Day 24)

My Favorite Armor, Gear, or Weapon Used in Any Anime (30 Day Anime Challenge, Day 22)

Generally, I'm not overly absorbed by weapons, gear, or armor. These are not usual shoujo staples. I could easily pick the iconic Shinsengumi uniform (and Yamaki's ninja apparel, as well, because that's pretty sweet if basic, something I'm totally okay with), but that would seem redundant given how much I clearly love Hakuouki and how terribly … Continue reading My Favorite Armor, Gear, or Weapon Used in Any Anime (30 Day Anime Challenge, Day 22)

My Favorite Goofy Anime Character (30 Day Anime Challenge, Day 21)

What does the question mean by "goofy?" I'm sitting here listening to Chōzetsu☆Dynamic! as I consider what character I should choose to wax on for the prompt today. Does Goku count as a goofy character because the original of DBZ and Super (read: not the dub) makes him seem like a total idiot? If not, perhaps someone … Continue reading My Favorite Goofy Anime Character (30 Day Anime Challenge, Day 21)
