I was tagged by @firequeensrules. Thank for this tag, you’re amazing and I have been wanting to rant about anime for a while so here we go. This one has one of my favorite questions ever.
1. favorite anime?
Okay, so Fullmetal Alchemist: Brotherhood will probably always have the most special place in my heart but I honestly can’t make up my mind anymore, so I’m gonna add Shouwa Genroku Rakugo Shinjuu, Haikyuu!!, Psycho Pass, My Hero Academia, Mob Psycho 100, Nana, and Kekkai Sensen. I’m also thinking of adding Sangatsu no lion because that one really hits home for me, I’m only halfway through that one, anyway I could watch this list of anime over and over again.
2. your worst anime?
Pfft, okay so I’ve had my list of trash anime (some of wish I unashamedly love), but my personal least favorite is High School of the Dead. I just …. no. I fucking hate it.
3. do you read the manga that goes along with the anime you watch?
Yes! If I really love the anime (which I watch most of them all the way through to the end because I hate watching stuff I don’t like) Then I’ve most likely also read the manga. I usually love the manga much more than the anime because it captures a lot of things that an anime can’t.
4. most favorite genres?
Shounen, Seinen, Action/Adventure, Josei, Sports, Magic/Supernatural, Sci-fi, Psychological, Horror, Comedy, Thriller, and Drama. Almost everything pretty much. I love alternative and unconventional anime the most though.
5. least favorite genres?
I hate ecchi and hentai with a passion. If the plot of a ecchi anime is REALLY, REALLY GOOD, and I mean REALLY, REALLY, REALLY GOOD, then I’ll cringe through it. Otherwise they both make me feel sick for the most part. I don’t hate shoujo, but I also have a very particular taste when it comes to that one, they either have me on the edge of my seat the entire time or bored to death. I usually don’t like romance unless it’s really funny or heartfelt:Like I love doukyuusei, and Gekkan Shoujo Nozaki-kun so much, but most other romance anime is just bleh. I also hate harems. I don’t care if it’s reverse or not I hate them.
6. favorite character?
NO. I’M NOT ANSWERING THIS. I LOVE TOO MANY. I HATE THIS QUESTION SO MUCH. SO MUUUUUCCHHH.
7. least favorite character?
Gosh. Probably Izaya Orihara from Durarara. I also have a long list of characters I hate though.
8. qualities you like in a character?
Complexity, complexiTY, COMPLEXITY!!!!! I LOVE COMPLEX CHARACTERS WITH ALL MY HEART!!!! I also love headstrong characters, really sweet and caring characters, characters who make serious deep sacrifices (I have a huge soft spot for them especially), I like the “underdog” characters who are bad at socializing, RELUCTANT BUT CAPABLE FIGHTERS who are willing to protect what they love but also hella peaceful, tsundere characters, angry characters, lovable dorky enthusiastic characters, big brother characters, really shy characters, scary but actually a softie characters, very clever characters, talented characters, playful asshole characters, sadistic characters (
because I’m a masochist) , very intelligent characters, hardworking characters, super nervous characters, super confident characters, very loyal characters, those characters who aren’t good or bad, VERY VERY EMOTIONAL CHARACTERS, logical and calculating characters, characters that are done with everyone’s shit, and most importantly characters who are willing to change or who go through major MAJOR character changes.
I probably missed some but there you go.
9. short or long anime?
Doesn’t matter to me. If I like it I’ll finish it eventually.
10. anime or manga?
Manga over anime most of the time but it really depends.
11. how do you choose the anime you watch?
I usually research before I dive in, then make my own assessment after watching, I don’t wanna accidentally end up watching something like Boku no Pico. I usually watch things through to end if an anime seems promising.
12. skip or listen to intros/outros?
Both. Depends on the intro. Like I didn’t skip Guren no Yumiya once.
13. how do you cope if your friends or family don’t like you watching anime?
UH, I WILL DO IT ANYWAY. Though I hate anime too, so I’d understand.
14. do you stop an anime midway if you don’t like it?
Yes. And I’ll probably never finish. Doesn’t take long for me to decide.
