Request : Can I ask for some super fluffy fluff with Yoongi or Namjoon? (You choose) Maybe make it medium sized or long? (If that’s okay) tysm💓
My gaze was focused on his hunched form, a smile on my lips
as I watched his head bob to the music playing through the headphones that
covered his ears. Slowly, I stood from my seat on the dark couch and crossed
the studio to where he sat. Draping my arms over him, resting them on his
chest, I buried my face in the crook of his neck and placed a soft kiss on it.
He paused the current track, slipping his headphones off with a chuckle. “Yes, baby
girl?” Yoongi muttered, looking over his shoulder and chuckling at my puckered
lips. Turning a bit more, he connected our lips, for a moment, in a chaste
I’ve decided this year to do things a little differently with my “favorite anime” lists. Instead of just doing a year-end top 10 list, I’m going to do a Top 5 every three months at the end of the season (anime seasons run quarterly, as opposed to once a year like with American TV). This way I can highlight more shows, plus it will be when all the episodes are online and you can watch the shows from beginning to end.
Without further ado…
#5: INTERVIEWS WITH MONSTER GIRLS This is a cute little slice of life/comedy series about a biology teacher who is fascinated by “demi-humans,” aka monsters. He happens to have three students who fall into this category (a vampire, a dullahan, and a snow woman), plus a fellow teacher who also happens to be a succubus. He convinces the girls to do interviews with him about what their lives are like as monsters, not just for his own curiosity but to figure out how to be a better teacher for them.
If you’re expecting risque ecchi shenanigans like on shows like Monster Musume, you won’t find them here. What you will find is a surprisingly sweet and charming show featuring some extremely likeable characters (the succubus teacher who tries to hide her physical charms by wearing a tracksuit, which of course only serves to get people’s minds racing even more, is my personal favorite).
#4: GABRIEL DROPOUT A hilarious comedy about an angel who graduates from angel school at the top of her class and is sent down to Earth for post-grad work… only to become obsessed with video games and turn into a lazy bum. Meanwhile her best friend, a demon fresh out of demon school, is entirely too sweet and responsible to be a good minion of Satan.
Throw in a fellow angel who is actually a complete sadist, and a fellow demon with delusions of grandeur, and you’ve got the recipe for some seriously funny times. Satanichia the would-be queen of the Underworld damn near steals the show. If you’re looking for some laughs this is a great show to check out.
#3: KONOSUBA - SEASON 2
If you haven’t seen Season 1 of Konosuba, stop what you’re doing, go watch it, then come back, apologize, and watch Season 2.
The four most inept, narcissistic, delusional adventurers in anime are back and funnier than ever. Imagine “Its Always Sunny” type humor mixed with D&D style fantasy world tropes. The jokes are nonstop with this show, with some fantastic voice acting (especially from the voice actor for Kazuma the main character). Even when the animation sometimes slips in quality, it actually makes the show FUNNIER.
I really hope we get a Season 3, I need more of the adventures of my explosion-obsessed mage, useless goddess, masochist knight and Kazutrash. I needs it, maaaaaaan.
#2: MISS KOBAYASHI’S DRAGON MAID
An office worker gets drunk one night and misses her train stop. She ends up wandering into the woods and coming across an injured dragon. After helping the dragon out, she offers to let the dragon stay with her… then goes home, sleeps it off, and completely forgets about everything.
The next morning, guess who’s at her doorstep?
Calling this show cute would be the understatement of the century. It’s absolutely adorable, with the dragons stealing the show with their shenanigans. The animation style is great, with tons of colors and great character designs. There’s a genuine sweetness to the show that’s never forced or cloying. And did I mention the show is about A FREAKING DRAGON MAID?
#1: SCUM’S WISH I had a hard time deciding whether or not to give this or KOBAYASHI the number 1 spot. If it came down to which show I had more fun watching, it would have been KOBAYASHI hands down. But that isn’t a fair way to judge this show.
Make no mistake: Scums Wish is NOT a pleasant show. It’s one of the most emotionally draining experiences I’ve had watching an anime. The subject matter alone will likely turn a lot of people off, and I imagine there will be people who like every other show on my list and hate this one. But that’s okay.
The show is about two high school students who appear to be the perfect couple, but it’s all an act: they’re actually in love with other people, people who they can’t have (their teachers), and are using each other as physical substitutes to fill the emotional void.
A lot of love stories (in anime and other mediums) like to pretend that love is always fun and pleasant, and even when things get bad, they work themselves out in the end. This is not one of those shows. This show will remind you just how horrible love can be: unrequited love, loving someone who hates you in return, knowing the person you love is only using you as a replacement but going along with it because you think it’s better than not having them in your life at all. The characters in this show are all flawed, and some of them do awful things to each other… but in the end, I desperately wanted them all to end up okay. You’ll have to watch the show to find out if they do.
As always, these are just my personal top picks. I’d love to hear what your favorite anime of the year so far are.
P.S. I know Little Witch Academia is missing. I’m waiting til the season is done to add it to any lists I do. I’m sure it will end up there.
As part of my request a prompt, 300 follower celebration.
Request: Prompt #37. “Don’t tempt me.” For tickle fight that ends up
in a wrestling match. (Thank you <3) As requested by: @withinmeloveresides1
Thank you for the request; friggin’ cute idea! This got a
little long. Hopefully this is what you were wanting. Enjoy some quality,
hard-core nerd flirting. 1.3k words.
It had started innocently enough: a quick nudge of a bony
elbow to his ribs, a soft protestation to the joke he’d made on your behalf;
teasing you for not getting the name of the particular, heavily forested moon
his heroes were traipsing through. The two of you had been watching Star Wars
in his bedroom for the past couple of hours; the little T.V. he’d pulled out of
a dumpster the week before propped up on an equally trashy table you’d managed
to find out on the street in front of your apartment building just for the
occasion. The DVD player he’d refurbished wasn’t the best; you’d spent a
majority of your time skipping back and forth through some of the most iconic
scenes, attempting to work through the heavily pixelated images as the machine
stuttered and choked over itself.
“Hey, be nice Darth Parker,” you bumped shoulders with him,
your elbow pushing its way under a firm arm, past the loose fabric of his
flannel, and into his ribs, “not everyone is a walking Star Wars encyclopedia.”
You noticed when he scooted an inch or so away from you, torso twisting, blanket wrinkling as
he pulled part of it with him, the warm space between the two of you beginning
to cool as he did so. A mischievous grin spread across your lips.
Was Peter ticklish?
“Darth Parker?” He laughed, his head thrown back, curly
strands of hair at his neck catching on his collar, eyes twinkling and pinched
at the corners, “really? That was the best you could do?” This time you sent an
errant finger to tease at his stomach as an accessory to the dirty look you
He jumped and let out a choked laugh, cutting it off quickly,
schooling his features in record time to turn and glare at you.
“Quit it,” he said, cheeks slightly pink, a hand holding his
wounds, calloused fingers enclosed over the secret spots your fingers had
Geoff - The crew knows when Geoff is angry. His voice can be heard throughout the base, breaking every couple of words like he’s 13 again. His fists clench like he wants to hit someone, and he’ll storm about the base, looking for something or someone to hit.
It’s different on the field. He holds it in, controls the anger, lets it change his voice into something smooth and inherently dangerous. His fists don’t clench, but his eyes narrow. If Geoff is angry out there, it means someone has seriously Fucked Up.
Jack - Jack’s the worst because Jack doesn’t get angry over most things that others would. When Jack’s angry at someone in the crew, it’s less anger and more disappointment. His head and voice lowers, and he sounds close to tears. Its enough to make anyone stop what they’re doing. Jack has had years to perfect it.
Whens Jacks angry at someone out of the crew its almost always over petty things, like slow walkers or someone obeying traffic laws. He lets his annoyance out. The best part for him is that when he does, someone is always willing to ‘fix’ the situation for him.
Ryan - Ryan always looks pissed off when he’s with the crew, but he’s never truly angry. Extremely annoyed, often, but not angry. Really getting Ryan angry doesn’t result in slaughter like one would think. Ryan, when angry with the crew, lets it fester, and turns it into a method of intense ‘pranking’ for his victim. Turn a corner and he’s there, sharpening a knife. Go to bed and feel his hand grab the mattress next to you as he crawls out and leaves without a word.
Ryan getting angry on field generally leads to his joy. Pissing off the Vagabond is sealing your own death and he likes that people know that. Screw murder breaks, its the perfect excuse to slaughter and maim and destroy someone off the face of the earth, without the annoying repercussions of angry Geoff.
Michael - It doesn’t matter who Michael is angry at, his voice gets loud and his actions get violent, just to varying degrees. Angry at Gavin, chase him down and tackle him while giving wet willies and noogies and yelling about what an idiot he is. Angry at a rival gang member? Lots of yelling threats and hunting down, but when he tackles, theres knives involved and brass knuckles, or less running and more lead entering the bastards body.
Gavin - Angry at the crew, Gavin turns into a bird; words become jumbled with squawks of indignation, and blushing turns his face red. Geoff and Michael swear they’ve seen his hair fluff up like an owls. His accent comes out in full force. Angry Gavin will wrestle and yell and run away like a child when hes angry. Sometimes though, theres tears, not that he lets anyone know. (Ryan knows, and sometimes he gets angry too).
Gavin rarely gets angry at people out of the crew though. Getting angry leads to getting revenge. Golden Boy is calm and focused when he getting revenge. He sits straight, eyes on the screen and fingers flying as he takes every cent out the bank account before alerting police to all possible locations, residencies and clubs. He leans back with a smile as he watches a life disappear down the drain.
Jeremy - Lil J angry is just funny. His voice turns defensive and he tries to puff up his chest and look into the eyes of whoevers pissed him off, but it’s too hard to take him seriously when you literally have to look down at him, and his little face, all balled up in anger like a 3 year old. Laughing only makes it worse (funnier).
Jeremy angry at other people is funny but for a different reason. The crew like watching him get angry, and underestimated by others. Its makes for a great show when he seems to disappear, leaving his victims in great shock, till he appears, normally from the roof, jumping down with a look of glee and a knife.

it's Audrey Jensen from the MTV Scream series. The exact date that the theft occurred was on July, 12th, 2016. I was just watching the show, minding my own business when this THIEF showed up in her sweater crop top and form fitting jeans and RIPPED my HEART out of my chest. STILL BEATING!!
Kou: I had no idea that you two would be jealous enough to call my voice “squeaky trash”.
Subaru: Shut up, your voice in general makes me wanna punch the living shit out of you.
Laito: Nfu, it does get quite girly rather often ♪
Kou: Hmph, see? Jealousy, jealousy all over! Well I sure would be if I were you, since Subaru-kun is destined to be a loner forever and Laito-kun just… *eyes him up and down and wrinkles his nose* … exists.
Subaru: I’LL BREAK YOUR FUCKING VOCAL CORDS YOU PIECE OF SHIT
Laito: Ahh, that’s very cruel… Ne, Subaru-kun, I’ll help you~
Ayato, Reiji & Ruki:
Reiji: *sighs deeply and pushes up his glasses* I cannot describe the shame I am feeling at the very moment.
Ruki: I hate to admit that we seem to be on the same wavelength here.
Ayato: Why the hell am I stuck with these nerds? C’mon, let Ore-sama fight too!
Reiji: There is a very good reason not to let you of all people go on rampage.
Ayato: Fucking killjoy. I don’t wanna watch the oncoming “gentlemen’s” dispute! *stomps away to join everyone else*
Ruki: Honestly, you can’t control even a single one of them. At least I am capable of making my brothers heed my words.
Reiji: Excuse me, I did not ask for your opinion on the matter.
Ruki: I do believe I don’t have to ask a permission when voicing out facts.
*they go on like this longer than the rest of them fight*
Jimin getting something for you because you're too short to reach. :)
So you weren’t the tallest person in the world… Standing at
a ground-breaking five and a half feet – adding an extra few inches when you wore your
good heels – you were always known as the ‘shortest one’ within your group of
friends, being made fun of on a daily basis simply because your feet could only
graze the floor whilst sitting on an average sized chair; or having to jump
pathetically into the air as high as your short legs could take you when you
couldn’t see over the shoulders of your tall, superior peers. Except, you never
really let it bother you because, well, you were comfortable with your height, and
you had already accepted it.
Going back and watching the end of season three (specifically 3x21-23) is so much funnier when you realize Melissa Fumero was actually pregnant. They were hiding it while also making it COMPLETELY obvious.
Thoughts on the “One Punch Man” English dub. Episode five.
sometimes dubs over enunciate names and its just funny to me
I like how the intro makes it look like Saitama’s having fun when he really isn’t
Saitama in a speedo, reblog if you agree
I do like that he’s buff in a way that makes sense, like he isn’t suddenly built like Dio when he takes a shirt off
that OPM/Deadpool mashup from Anime Boston last year actually makes this fitness test funnier to me
that poor punching machine was just one day away from retirement
again Genos doesn’t have a dick, I’m not sure I understand how SaiGenos porn works unless he has some kind of attachment
deep down part of me wants to buy an oppai hoodie
“all right then. come on. when you get down to it the only thing that really matters is that we passed” life motto
so Amai Mask is voiced by an actor names Ben Lepley who’s biggest project aside from this is probably the Mobile Suit Gundam: Iron Blooded Orphans dub
Sneck is voiced by Kirk Thorton who voices Saix in Kingdom Hearts, is the voice of Shadow the Hedgehog since 2010, codirected the Bleach dub along with Wendee Lee, is Kisame in Naruto, and Master Roshi in Dragon Ball Super
love this gum gag
the moment its revealed Saitama saving that stupid kid actually led to the hero association being formed and he doesn’t even notice
“frankly its as if there’s a god residing in that body” this sounds really gay out of context
I like Sneck, he’s ridiculous
wow a flip phone, then again a few years back I was told that in Japan smart phones aren’t necessarily the norm like they are in America (though within those years I’m not sure if its changed)
“hold on hero names? what are those?” …..this is why you flunked the written portion
I am happy the Caped Baldy made it into the dub though
always loved how they animated Genos curling his fingers into a fist, its just so seamless
this whole sequence was impressive, so I hope the people shitting on the last episode felt like little bitches when this one aired
also loved the way Genos’s cheek squishes under Saitama’s finger
the most epic boop in anime history
a small detail I appreciate is you can see the glow in Genos’s eyes fade back into their usual look, its small details like this and the finger animation I mentioned that help make this anime so visually appealing
when they’re at the restaurant you can hear a background woman say “oh my goodness what a handsome man”, felt like bringing it up
wow I got lucky, they call him Amai Mask and not Sweet Mask so I don’t have to feel dumb for using that name
who takes a walk to digest a meal?
when Saitama calls Genos a Class S it sounded like he said “class ass”
to be honest its hard for me to look at Amai Mask and not be lost in the fact that Mamoru Miyano voiced him in Japanese, he’s probably the first Japanese voice actor along with Kappei Yamaguchi (yes its because they were Light and L) I became really aware of
Saitama: casually eats a phallic popsicle with his shirt off
“may I live here with you now?” “no way. absolutely not” “I have rent money” *three hour pause* “did you bring a toothbrush?” “YES!”
so I found this scene funnier in the manga as Saitama doesn’t stop and rethink anything, Genos throws the money down and he’s all “yo come on in!”
tune in next time for Joint of Bones Panic and the debut of Female Ritsu
I like being flamboyant, fabulous, and fierce but as an aro male I am often misunderstood as gay (didn’t see that one coming did you XD). So I was relaxing at work one day in the break room reading (I am so passionate about fantasy it scares me) around the holidays and a co-worker, who had the “please let me not work with her” reputation, walked up and practically yelled at me, asking if I was gay. Personally, I didn’t care that much, but you could feel 9 pairs of eyes turn on to this poor girl and me. First cause she was hella rude, but secondly because no one knew my "sexuality" and they undoubtedly wanted to know. I told her the classic ace/aro line that I just really liked dragons and was aro. I think it took her five minutes to process that I was aro and just had a fabulous personality. Of course the other nine people had great gossip to spread and its kinda nice now. A now friend of mine came up to me afterwards and was like, “You act gayer then I do and I’ m actually gay.” Needless to say it makes interacting with people easier when they know that you don’t want any of the goods and would rather just be friends. A week later I was invited by three separate ladies to three separate movies (platonically). That was a pretty fantastic development if I do say so myself cause watching a movie with a squad at the theater is way funnier then solo. I’m pretty sure we scarred the other viewers for life. On the other end though some people still don’t understand what being aro is. For example earlier today was invited to a baby shower… I may be aro and flamboyant but that was a little much. However, I am actually really proud of my co-workers cause they practically added on a “basement” to their “houses” so we could be friends. (even if some misunderstand what the being in the basement is like)
