Mallow’s questions:

1) What helps you remain passionate about blogging?

I wish I knew. These days, it’s just become something I do without thinking twice about it. It’s not as if I’ve lost the joy of blogging or anything but it’s just become part of my routine if that makes sense.

2) What is something you know now about blogging that you wished you knew when you began?

That scheduling your posts is the best way to go. These days, I tend to do a batch of posts and schedule them all and when summer comes round, I usually write and schedule at last a couple months’ worth of my regular weekly posts so Music Box and Friday Favourites are usually scheduled. Though, from the beginning of this month, I have been writing them on the day because I fell behind on scheduling.

3) If you could meet your favourite voice actor/actress who would it be?

Daisuke Ono or Ishikawa Kaito

4) Would you like to get in to the animation/entertainment/videogame industry?. If so, is Shirobako or new game an inspiration for you to do so?. If not, then why did you decide to go in to said industry?

No, I’ve not been swayed into any of those. Rather, I’ve stuck to my dream to continue studying and stay in research. I guess I like researching and have fun doing it and literature is something I love.

5) If you weren’t blogging, would you try something like a podcast or youtube?

Nope. I’d rather write than share my thoughts any other way.

6) If your favourite videogame/anime character came to life, how would you spend your time with them?

I’d spend the time watching the anime they came from because that would be such a weird experience.

7) What two anime/videogame world would you live in?

Haikyuu and Barakamon. I’ll go for the fairly normal ones that way I can enjoy a fairly normal life.

Once again, thank you to Mallow for the questions!

  2. Oh, thank you for the nomination! I haven’t had an award in a while so this is gonna be fun. Awesome answers you had. The anime in real life answer was great. It would be a surreal experience for sure. Well, I’ll be doing this in the upcoming days. Yay!

  3. Thanks, but I think I’ve done this one previously (I did the one with the jaguar in the comments so that automatically means I do this one in the comments as well), so…lessee:

    What is one thing you want to achieve this year? – I specifically didn’t set any resolutions this year because last year’s ones got a bit stressful, even though I finished them by September. I do have two goals for 2019, but they’re probably something you could identify me in real life by so I’m not going to say them here.

    If you could become any creature what would it be? – If I had the choice, I’d stick to being me…but since that’s avoiding the question, I’d probably just be a housecat or the equivalent in dog terms.

    If you were a character what type of character would you be? A background character. (That’s not a cop out, is it?) Please let me be a properly-drawn 2D character though – the 3D background characters in Tsukigakirei annoy me.

    What is the worst anime you’ve watched? The answer changes depending on whether you want to exclude short-episode series, special episodes etc., but the worst thing overall (which is what people generally mean when they ask that) is Vampire Holmes, because I was looking forward to it before it aired – I mean, if it were a proper full-length series with a plot, it would be basically impossible to stuff up without being entertaining one way or another, but it’s a short-episode series with no plot and it’s bookended by actual ads for the game! It makes me angry just thinking about it!!!

    Do you prefer to read the source material or watch adaptations? Depends on what I get my hands on and when. (Reason being I’ve found whatever I get my hands on first is what I tend to favour.)

    Do you skip openings/endings when watching anime? Why? Depends on time constraints and whether I’ve grown attached to listening to the song in OP/ED format. Generally the answer is yes, simply because music isn’t much of a priority for me when it comes to anime, though if it’s the first appearance of a new OP/ED I feel obligated to watch them through regardless.

    What is your favourite opening/ending from this season of anime? None of the songs from this season have really made an impression on me, aside from maybe the ED of the second season of Morose Mononokean…so that might be by answer.

  4. “I’d spend the time watching the anime they came from because that would be such a weird experience.”

    I love that answer! It has such a Re:CREATORS’ vibe!

    Thanks for the tag! And thanks for such interesting questions! I’ll see what I can do with it.
