Day 15: Most epic or shocking scene

I’m going to try and keep this as spoiler free as possible…

A few scenes jump to mind here, so I’ll talk a little about each one.

The end of Banana Fish in the library was the most shocking scene I’ve seen in a while. It really got to me, and I was sobbing from basically the moment that happened to about half an hour after the end credits rolled. I don’t want to talk on it any further as I don’t trust myself to not spoil it, and I think it’s one of those things that really needs to be experienced unspoilt.

Day 16: Favourite anime couple (canon)

I could write an entire essay here on why Bokuto and Akaashi are, in fact, canon but I’ll refrain and give you something that’s explicitly canon instead.

My favourite anime couple are Ryouma and Izumi from Love Stage. They’re just so cute together, and Ryouma loves Izumi so much. I’m also… very similar to Izumi, so it’s nice to see that someone loves him!

Another anime couple I love are Narumi and Hirotaka from Wotakoi: Love is Hard for an Otaku.  They fit together so well and really compliment each other’s characters. I really hope it gets another season, as I’d love to see them together a bit more.

Day 14: Anime character you hate

I’m going to give two answers here, because my first answer I’ve already talked about this anime quite a bit, and also, I feel like the point of the character is to polarise people, so my second answer will be someone less obvious.

Firstly, I really, truly hate Light from Death Note. I know he’s designed so you either see eye to eye with him, or you don’t, but I just found him really manipulative and awful.

Secondly, a character that I hate just… for no reason at all really, is Shigino Kisumi from Free! Eternal Summer. He’s just so annoying! He literally turns up and inserts himself into any situation, which most of the time do not concern him at all, and he makes things awkward for so many characters at times. I didn’t even like him once you learn more of his backstory in the movies, he is just a very irritating character, in my opinion.

It’s funny how things changed because before Haikyuu!! season 4 aired, I would have said Tsukki without hesitating, but he had such a good season and showed some real character development that I can’t bring myself to put him. Even if he is unnecessarily mean to Yamaguchi.

Day 13: Favourite VA/seiyuu

My favourite VA is Mamoru Miyano! He just has such an expressive voice, and so many of the characters he voices go on to be my favourite in the series. Most notably, he is the voice of Tsukiyama Shu from Tokyo Ghoul, who is one of my favourite characters ever.

I won’t give a massive list of all of his work, you can check it out here!

Day 12: Favourite music in anime

I tried to think of this outside of OPs and EDs, so this was a little harder for me. In general, I’m not super observant with stuff like soundtracks.

ARP Backstage Pass was an anime I started watching last season. From what I can gather, and having done very limited research, ARP is an IRL virtual group, and the anime has been made and is set up as a documentary of kinds. The anime is interspersed with CGI cuts of them performing and then at the end has the idols discussing the episode and looking ahead to the next episode. I’ll do a review of it when I’ve finished it, but I’m actually quite enjoying it. The reason I bring it up is that obviously as an idol show, you’d expect it to have songs, and it does, and they’re all so good. One of the songs in particular, The Kiss, has been on repeat for me constantly since I heard it.

I’m sure there’s probably a lot better music out there, but for now, this is what I think of when I think of good music in anime, so I’ll go with it.

As a side note, I was going to choose given, but I haven’t been able to listen to a single song from it since it aired without crying, so for pure replayability and enjoyment, I’ve gone for ARP.

Day 11: Do you like yaoi/yuri?

In short, yes. I read a lot of BL manga, as you may have picked up on if you’ve ever read the blog before, and have watched a lot of yaoi shows in my time.

With yuri, I’ve only ever watched one yuri anime Netsuzou TRap, and I hated it (in fact, you can read my review of it here). I do want to give it another chance as a genre, just with an anime that doesn’t totally suck and make me hate every single character in it.

Day 10: The anime that changed you

This is a really tough question! I’d say that Death Note is probably the anime that changed me the most. It was the first anime I watched consciously knowing what anime was, and the one where I thought, “Man, I could really get into watching more stuff like this”, and then it’s just escalated from there.

Day 9: Your first anime crush

My first anime crush was back in the days before I even knew what anime was, watching Pokémon. I don’t quite know why, as he’s definitely not my type of character now, but I really loved James when I was younger!

If we count Pokémon as my first anime, then my first anime crush when I consciouly knew what anime was came about during my third anime, Attack on Titan. Levi is definitely my type of character, and probably the reason I like most characters I do like. Whilst I don’t like James much, I still love Levi and he’s probably one of my favourite Attack on Titan characters.
