One of the many fun things you get to do as a blogger is being able to do awards like this. As always, our great neighbor OG-Man nominated us for this award, and we’ll gladly accept the offer~
As a short introduction, the Liebster Award consists of 11 questions. After answering them, you can pick up to 11 other bloggers and ask them 11 other questions that you came up with yourself.
I think I’ll go with Touhou’s Gensokyo minus all the evil and dangerous creatures, of course. It looks like most of its citizens are young, beautiful girls with lesbian tendencies, and what makes it even better, there would be magic and fairies and all that good stuff~ Though, there is one thing that should never be missing and that is a fast internet connection! Yup, my ideal anime world would be Gensokyo – evil stuff + fast internet.
Mine is not quite as fantastical as hers. Mine is just a normal, everyday world, except I would be the King and everyone would be at my beck and call. And I’d have superpowers. And I’d be immortal too. Yes, I would exist in the world I created. There was no rule saying you can’t do that. 😛
Lately, work has taken over the majority of my time, leaving me with so little time that it’s sometimes hard to keep up with my hobbies.
So balancing these two is a big problem right now, but I’m confident that things will get better soon.
I’m kinda like Sora from No Game No Life (minus the adorable little sister), so it’s not too hard actually. I also don’t really have too many other hobbies like watching non-anime TV or movies, so it’s even easier. And living in a quiet town helps too, since there’s usually not too much going on here.
That’s a hard one… Well, I guess I’ll go with Yamibo. In this case, the ending totally ruined the whole show for me, and probably also for a lot more yuri fans. Well, it was a yuri ending in a way, but the most disappointing and frustrating ending one could come up with.
An anime indie film from the early 90’s called Midori: Shoujo Tsubaki. A young girl goes from selling flowers for her sick mom, to being forced into joining a traveling carnival after her mom dies, to being raped and abused, to falling for a new carnival member who’s really a possessive scumbag, to thinking she’s finally escaping that life thanks to him, only to find that she’s been tricked and abandoned. Or something like that. It’s morbid and disturbing and it will make you feel horrible.
Other than the Comiket, I’ve never been to any anime/game/comic-related event. But I do remember going on vacation with my now ex-girlfriend to a certain city that has a Japanese district.
We booked a room in a Japanese-themed hotel and simply went there for all the great Japanese food and the many anime stores. I guess that counts.
I live nowhere near where any anime/game/comic conventions are held, so I’ve yet to attend one. That said, I would be more than willing to don a ridiculous cosplay outfit and make an absolute fool of myself in the future.
I don’t think I was ever inspired by an anime or anime character in a way that made me change or want to change my life.
Kyousuke from OreImo inspired me to follow my heart and to believe that love will always find a way. (And no, I’m not in love with my sister. :P)
Definitely visual novels. I already prefer manga over books, simply because I usually need some visuals to be able to fully enjoy the story.
In the case of visual novels, not only do I get pictures, I also get music and sometimes even voices, so that’s even better.
Can I pick neither? I’ve never read a light novel and I’ve only played 2 visual novels, and haven’t yet finished either one. I don’t enjoy reading, in general, but I’d have to go with manga by default.
In this case, it’s definitely not subbed anime. I started learning Japanese because I want to be able to read all the untranslated yuri manga, doujinshi, and visual novels. Unfortunately, I don’t have enough time to continue my studies, so right now, I’m not making any progress.
Sure. Prior to watching anime, I didn’t really have a reason to do so, but it would definitely be helpful to be able to read/understand the language. Hopefully I’ll be able to do it someday.
While trying to understand the question, I found out that a sledgehammer is not just a hammer, it is also a word you use for a bad handjob… Yup, that knowledge was very important, but I still don’t get the question. 😛
^ Just reading that makes me feel dirty. 😛
This must be some weird twist on “the pen is mightier than the sword”. So through sexual coercion you can influence more than the one who solely does so through violence? Does that make prostitutes amazingly powerful? What am I even talking about? I’m so confused!
You know what, there are so many awesome anime weapons to choose from, but I’ll still go with a katana. I know, I know, how boring…. But I still think that this weapon is not just deadly, it’s also freaking beautiful and cool!
A katana would be nice. It would make me feel like a badass when I slice fruit and stuff, but I’ll have to go with the Death Note. Unlike a katana, you could take/use it anywhere, nobody would suspect it to be a weapon, and you can tear off a piece and it would still have the same effect as the whole notebook. It’s the perfect killing machine! Not that I would have a use for something like that….
Well, Sono Hanabira has encouraged me to…. I’m just joking. 😛
It’s not really a sport or a game, but watching Mangirl! encouraged me to try my hand at becoming a mangaka. What I failed to take in account however, is the fact that I can’t draw, as this illustration of Lena demonstrates. Yet that didn’t stop me from turning it into a short film….
^ I had a feeling this was coming…. Still I’m surprised and mildly afraid of what people are gonna think of your “talent”….
^ Daijobu, L. If people think it’s bad, I’ll just have to show them some of my yuri. That’ll be sure to change their minds.
I can’t in good faith choose anything Nintendo-related, so I’ll go with a Chocobo, even though I’ve never played any Final Fantasy game. *runs and hides from the Nintendo fanboys/fangirls*
