“Street Corners and Cemeteries” (Create-A-Story Tag)

While I was nominated by Hazelyn over at Archi-Anime, Keiko’s Anime Blog originated the Create-A-Story tag. Rules 1. You pick your first word, your setting and your story genre from the list below. As individuals, your brand of creativity is unique to yours, so we want to highlight that by letting you choose from a bunch … Continue reading “Street Corners and Cemeteries” (Create-A-Story Tag)

Feature the Dumbest Character (30 Day Character Challenge, Day 16)

Some of these challenge prompts get so frankly insulting, don't they? I mean, sure, I can probably think of a few characters who are none too bright, but does that really mean we need to call them out on it? Doesn't that seem the tiniest, tad bit unfair? And, on top of that, what makes … Continue reading Feature the Dumbest Character (30 Day Character Challenge, Day 16)

Feature the Smartest Character (30 Day Character Challenge, Day 15)

I'm trying quite hard, my dear anime compatriots, not to overthink these prompts. It may prove impossible for me to determine, for example, who the *smartest* anime character is, but I can sure mention one or more who I know for a fact to be intelligent. Without belaboring the point, I'm terrible about favorites and … Continue reading Feature the Smartest Character (30 Day Character Challenge, Day 15)

Feat. A Character You Wish Was Never Introduced (30 Day Character Challenge, Day 14)

No character immediately jumped into my head for this particular challenge entry. I sat and ran through titles in my mind, but I couldn't come up with a name for the life of me, it seemed. Then it occurred to me that I didn't have to wish a character was never introduced based on that … Continue reading Feat. A Character You Wish Was Never Introduced (30 Day Character Challenge, Day 14)

Feat. a Character with the Best Quotes (30 Day Character Challenge, Day 12)

I was kidnapped yesterday, my friend Ginger bought a wedding dress, I'm eating onigiri over my lunch break, and this challenge post is late. I blame Attack on Titan. But wait, you say. I finished AoT two days ago? Yes, you're right, but it is what it is. Allow me to explain, dear readers. I … Continue reading Feat. a Character with the Best Quotes (30 Day Character Challenge, Day 12)

Feat. a Character Who Taught You Something About Love (30 Day Character Challenge, Day 11)

Yuri Katsuki taught me that love doesn't need a label to be meaningful, to be beautiful. I've written an expose on the relationship between Victor and Yuri in the past*, but I'll reiterate that this show moved me because of its ambiguity. Yuri's passion for the ice as a manifestation of his love for Victor doesn't … Continue reading Feat. a Character Who Taught You Something About Love (30 Day Character Challenge, Day 11)

Feat. a Character Who Taught You Something About Life (30 Day Character Challenge, Day 10)

Enter... Eren Jaeger, who taught me about the nature of humanity.   He taught me that perseverance, determination, nerve, and grit mean just as much as inborn ability. He taught me that even the best of us fail under pressure. He taught me that it is possible to loose yourself in the heat of the moment … Continue reading Feat. a Character Who Taught You Something About Life (30 Day Character Challenge, Day 10)

Feat. a Character that Would Be Your Best Friend (30 Day Character Challenge, Day 9)

The difficulty in this particular challenge piece is establishing what exactly I should here consider; do I choose a best friend based on compatibility or simply on the interest that I have in said character? For example, I feel like Yurio (Yuri!!! On Ice) and I would have quite the interesting dynamic, and I'd be … Continue reading Feat. a Character that Would Be Your Best Friend (30 Day Character Challenge, Day 9)

Feat. the Funniest Character (30 Day Character Challenge, Day 8)

While I know I should be writing this post, I have the most irrepressible urge to watch a few episodes of Kamisama Kiss. I think I need to go do that now, so hang with me, fellows... *skips off to watch anime* *creeps back into WordPress two days later* ...Sowee, compatriots... I got off task. … Continue reading Feat. the Funniest Character (30 Day Character Challenge, Day 8)

Feat. the Hottest Character (30 Day Character Challenge, Day 7)

Genuine Spoiler Alert! Well, I mean, clearly the hottest character would be Calcifer, duh... No, no, okay, I know I'm not supposed to take this literally, but I couldn't help it. He is literally so hot! Moving on, I guess it's time to get serious, but again I say that my primary genre is shoujo. … Continue reading Feat. the Hottest Character (30 Day Character Challenge, Day 7)
