Blogger Game – The Sunshine Blogger Award

sunshine blogger award

Thanks a lot to OtakuOrbit for nominating YuriReviews for this award, or, well, blogger game. It’s always fun to do these, so feel free to nominate us for many more~

  • Thank the person who nominated you in a blog post and link back to their blog
  • Answer the 11 questions sent by the person who nominated you
  • Nominate 11 new blogs to receive the award and write them 11 new questions
  • List the rules and display the Sunshine Blogger Award logo in your post and/or your blog

1. Which popular anime character do you hate?

Hm, that’s a hard one. I guess Levi from Shingeki no Kyojin might be a good pick here. I don’t really dislike him for being grumpy all the time and all, but rather for the fact that on many forums online, all the fangirls went crazy over him and often ruined interesting topics by simply posting about how awesome (and gay for blondie) he is, instead of focusing on the actual topic of the thread. That alone is often reason enough for me to start disliking things and characters.

That’s an easy one for me! Yuu from Sakura Trick. Haruka was pretty awesome, but I didn’t like Yuu’s childish attitude at all. Things are made even worse due to the fact that Yuu’s sister is sooooo much more likable, so Yuu ends up coming off even worse. Even though I knew it would never happen, I still shipped Haruka x Mitsuki.

2. Who’s your favorite female anime character?

Oh no, that’s even harder! Like, there are so many that I can’t decide! Would it be Chikane from Kannazuki no Miko, Fate from the Nanoha series, or how about awesome and cute Saber from Fate/stay night? It’s seriously too hard! Every badass, beautiful character with a great voice actually does the trick for me. 😛

Forgive me, Mirai, but that’s another easy one: Tomoko from WataMote. She’s my avatar, and in addition to being incredibly adorable, I just love her personality. Plus, I can relate to her a little bit~

3. What was your first anime?

That would be Pokemon. Though, if we talk about more recent times, or let’s just say the anime that made me start watching when I got a little older, then that would be Death Note.

Woar! We’re so similar! 😛

It’s also Death Note for me. I’m not sure if it was such a great idea to start with one of the best shows, right off the bat. On one hand, it helped get me hooked, but on the other, most other shows pale in comparison.

4. What is your favorite sport? If you don’t have one, why?

I played handball back in the day, though I haven’t played in a long while. Other than that, I like badminton and soccer, as well as basketball. I suck at it, though.

As much as I want to say MMA, I’ll have to go with (American) football. I’ve loved it ever since I was a kid, and I was briefly on the football team in high school, so I can’t see myself ever not being a hardcore fan.

5. Do you like any sports anime?

Nah. Actually, I try to stay away from these lately. I don’t do much sports myself, so I’m not that interested in seeing it in anime either.

I wouldn’t say I like them, since I think the only (real) sports anime I’ve seen is Eyeshield 21, and I never actually finished that one. But if there was ever another football or MMA-themed anime, I would probably have to watch it.

6. Which is more creative, the “Quirks” of Boku no Academia or “Devil Fruit” abilities in One Piece?

I think the Quirks are more creative, but then again, I only know some Devil Fruit abilities. 😛

Still, I don’t think there is any ability so far that I’d really wanna have. They need to add more abilities like flying or mind reading or stuff like that.

Thankfully, I’ve never seen One Piece, so by default, I’d have to say the Quirks from Boku no Hero Academia. 😛

And I’d think outside the box, and I would have a Quirk named “Love Arrow”. I’d basically be a Cupid-like hero, and my hero name would be Nipp Arrows~

7. Which anime death hit you the hardest?

I just recently re-watched the first episode of Shingeki no Kyojin, and oh man, did the death of Eren’s mother get to me. It really had a big impact, even though it was only the first episode. Other than that, I, of course, couldn’t handle Chikane’s death very well, for obvious reasons. 😛

I have a feeling my answer will change when I finally finish one of the shows that I’m currently watching, but even though I’m not sure this technically counts, I’ll go with Menma from AnoHana. Eren and Mikasa’s mom’s death was rough, but the final scene in AnoHana gets me every single time.

8. Which anime universe would you rather live in, Evangelion or Shingeki no Kyojin?

None of these, please. 😛

If I really had to decide, I’d much rather live in the universe of Evangelion then. I can’t stand these freaking scary titans. 😛

I’ve never seen Evangelion, but since I hate mechas, I’ll prefer Shingeki no Kyojin. Of course, I’d secretly be a titan myself, and no one would suspect a thing! Hehe. >:D

9. Is there an anime that you wish would get another season?

So many actually! How about Sasameki Koto, Aoi Hana, Sakura Trick or basically any other yuri show?!

There are way too many to list, but if I had to choose one, I’ll say Gekkan Shoujo Nozaki-kun. That show might be one of my top ten favorite shows ever, so I’d kill to get another season.

10. Does level of animation matter to you, when watching anime?

I’m actually one of those awful people who can’t enjoy older anime exactly because of that, so it’s unfortunately a yes for me…

^^ It’s not just older stuff with her, though! A couple of years ago, I tried to get her to watch Wolf Children, but she didn’t like the animation, so she didn’t want to… 😛

As for me, I don’t really mind at all.

11. Is there a blog post that you’ve wanted to write but haven’t yet?

Oh, I wanna do sooo many more Artist Reviews, so many more fun blogger games, quite a few more Yuri Tournaments, and more Let’s Talk About posts. There is nothing specific right now that I wanna write about, but there are quite a few ideas ready~

I mostly do Anime Reviews, but I’ve been wanting to try some other stuff for a while now. I have a couple of ideas for some Let’s Talk About posts, so if all goes right, I’m hoping to write those at some point in the not-so-distant future~


  • Is there an anime that you’ve never finished, but you still hope to one day?
  • Have you ever cried while watching anime? If so, which anime was it?
  • Everybody seems to have guilty pleasures, shows they might not want to admit that they like. Do you have one?
  • What’s the best song that you’ve heard this year?
  • Do you have a nickname, and if so, how did you get it?
  • What blogging-related thing are you most proud of?
  • What are your pet peeves?
  • When you’re finished blogging, what do you want to be remembered for?
  • If you had a personal theme song that played wherever you go, what would it be?
  • What was the last movie you watched? How was it?
  • What do people think is weird about you?

As for the nominees, I’ll contact them personally instead of risking them not seeing this post. Plus, I think getting eleven people is hard, so I don’t wanna go through the embarrassment of not getting enough bloggers for this award. 😛

  1. Glad to see you guys were nominated for an award! 😀 ill have my fingers crossed you can win it! 😉 Lena on your answer to Question 9, I totaly agree that any and all yuri shows need more seasons! from Sasameki Koto to Valkyrie Drive! 😀 I think Sakura Trick needs like…. 50 seasons!

  2. Congratulations on getting nominated for the award… Personally these questions are so interesting, please don’t hate me for having a go at them (all of OtakuOrbit’s questions except 11 of course)

    1) I have to agree with Lena, Levi is over hyped. And I like Mikasa better.
    2) This has got to be the hardest question ever. I usually prefer female characters and badass ones at that more than anyone else. From Mikasa Ackermann to Misaki Ayuzawa to Akemi Homura to Gasai Yuno… It’s the hardest question in the world.
    3) I used to watch anime as random shows on the TV when I was a kid. So technically it is Inuyasha, but I started watching seriously from Death Note just like you two.
    4) Table Tennis. I was part of the school team, high school team, district team, and college team.
    5) Slam Dunk. I used to watch it when I was a kid. After I started anime again, I watched the whole thing again. (all 101 episodes and the movies)
    6) “Quirks” for the same reason as Rock The Vogt
    7) Ushio Okazaki from Clannad: After Story… In fact the whole Ushio arc was a stab after stab through my already weakened heart. Her death was the final blow.
    8) Shingeki no Kyojin. Mikasa is in it.
    9) Yeah. Oregairu really should get another season. And so should No Game No Life. And so should most Yuri shows already mentioned… I really can’t decide for this one.
    10) It used to, but then I watched ‘ping pong animation’ I still appreciate good animation like Clannad.

    Thanks guys for your wonderful blog. I’ve been following you guys for over 2 years now and I still get excited with every new post or review. I can say I was interested in Yuri before you guys, but thanks to you I’m now part of the Yuri fan family.

    • Aww, thanks for the kind words 🙂
      Also, everyone should feel free to join this little game and just answer for themselves.

      Actually, how about I nominate you now, so you gotta answer to the rest of the questions too (if you’re interested that is) 😉


  3. So Rock, am curious about your pick for who you hate.

    I have to ask if she’s even worse than Akane from Scum’s? You did say this about Akane:
    “Akane … might be my most hated anime character of all-time”.

    We talked a bit about Yuu here:
    But that seemed more like dislike than hate(also chuckle worthy).

    So do you hate Yuu worse than Akane?

    Liked by 1 person

    • Tough call. Since I have to see Yuu a lot more often (like in one of our headers), my hate for her is constantly being rekindled. In contrast, I pretty much never have to see Akane again (hopefully), so I think that plays a part in that decision.

      And since I think that Yuu is pretty popular, part of me wants to go against what die Herde thinks of her. 😛

      Also, I may have forgotten about Akane while answering that question. 😀

      ^^ But maybe that just means that I subconsciously dislike Yuu more, since I can never forget how much I hate her. Either way, they’re 1 and 1A for sure.

      P.S. – Dman! L’s gonna see that old comment and realize that she hasn’t added Yuu to the Yuri Anime Legends post yet!

      Thanks for reminding her, shadesan. Thanks a lot… 😛

      ^^ But I do like that Mitsuki is already there~ 😎
