^________^; I don’t normally do to well with awards. Nerves kick in xDD. But the excellent anime reviewer Takuto @ https://animecafehost.wordpress.com/ nominated me. And I’m deeply honoured that he did :). A great blogger friend, who has oodles and oodles of potential of being a great reviewer. Reading his review is always a pleasure. Hope it goes on from strength to strength.
Well here goes me answering the questions fired at me xDD.
1. Do you prefer anime films or series?
I prefer series. More time for development and world building. Whilst being able to pick a favourite character that can I relate to. With films, you are limited – but still enjoyable. However the budget for films, I find is much higher than TV series.
2. Why do you write on your blog?
This is an interesting one. I used to write fantasy stories since I was a kid. However I stopped writing them as I got much older. So writing has always been a “thing” to me. You could say I never got out of it, but redirected it in another way – so naturally blogging would be the obvious course. Funny thing is I still get ideas for stories, even characters but nothing is ever put down in writing – at most mental notes are made.
3. Gun fights or sword showdowns?
Yipes, another tough one for me. I love sword fights. It has always been one of my favourite things. Whether it was in cartoons or movies. When I used to write (see above) I always had my main protagonist have a sword. Even my alter ego that I made up (in stories), had a sword and even what type of attacks he had etc. When I was a kid, I had no interest in gun fights. But these days I don’t mind them. When I do have an idea for a character, he tends to lean towards a range fighter. Even when I play MMO’ I head towards the gun class (if there is one).
4. What was the last anime character that you related deeply to, if any?
Archer from the fate stay night. I’ve always related to him. Following & believing an ideal so heavily, only to see it fall apart right in front of you. You feel like the very thing you believed in betrayed you. And that is what his own ideal did to him. The next character I would say is Haruyuki Arita from Accel World.
5. What’s your opinion on this spring anime season – simulcasts?
A mixed bag with some hidden gems. Stand outs so far are; Arslan senki, FSN: UBW, Re-kan, Oremonogatari and is it wrong to pick up girls in dung.
6. How do you juggle between real life and blogging commitments?
I would be considered a casual-blogger. I post when I can. And when I do, I schedule my posts, for the most part. I pretty much have a date and time as to when my post go up.
7. At this exact moment, what anime and episode are you on/watching, if any?
Tough one, I’m watching multiple series. Off the bat, Aldnoah on episode 22.
And there you have it. Some questions asked by Takuto. I thank him again for nominating me.
