I’ve Been Nominated for a Real Neat Blog Award!

I’ve been nominated for a Real Neat Blog Award by the awesometastic Blamesaiki! Thank you very much for the nomination, BlameSaiki! 🙂 Sorry it’s taken me so long to respond, but I hope I’ve come up with some decent answers to your questions.

If you haven’t already, check out their blog – There are a lot of really great anime and manga reviews waiting for you! We each reviewed the latest Yami Shibai series episode by episode back around Halloween, and it was a ton of fun to bounce back and forth and get different (and similar) views on the episodes as we went on. Hopefully, we’ll be able to do it again this fall, but for now it’s question time!

So, what are the rules?

  • Display the logo.
  • Thank the blogger for the award.
  • Answer the questions from the one who nominated you.
  • Nominate 7 to 10 bloggers.
  • Ask them 7 questions.


So, you’ve been hit by the infamous truck-kun. You are now in a different world! (Didn’t see that coming, did ya?). You’re now forced to make some choices prior to starting your journey. But, be warned, once chosen, they cannot be undone. Play at your own risk.

1) What Class/Role Would You Choose?

I’ve answered this question a couple of ways in the past, but this time I feel more like answering with: A machinist/engineer.

I absolutely love any game that has a machinist/engineer or the like in it. The usually steampunk-esque vibe is always cool, and it’s so much fun and so interesting to set up turrets, traps, healing locations etc. whether by yourself or in a team (though, admittedly, it’s usually more fun when you’re in a team.) Plus, I love tech, mecha and robots, so I think I’d have just as much fun being this class in a real scenario.

2) What Ability or Weapon Would Be Your Go-To?

I love the power to bring drawings to life. I love art, I’ve been drawing for as long as I can remember, and this ability literally yields endless opportunities, as long as I’d have something to draw with and on.

3) Pick Two Companions to Have with You from Any Form of Entertainment.

Deadpool. Hands down. He’d be an endless source of entertainment, and he’d be able to take down any threats we encounter.

The second pick is a little tougher….Maybe Appa from Avatar the Last Airbender? He’d be an awesome companion, and he’d be able to fly us around to get a lay of the area and transport us anywhere quickly.

4) What is an Unexpected Talent You Have That’ll Help You in Your Journey?

Uhhhh…..I don’t really think I have any? I’m a pretty talentless schmo.

5) What Character Would You Choose as Your Mentor/Sensei?

Vash the Stampede. He’s funny, but wise. He’s gentle, but kickass. He’s a great friend, serious, focused when need be, and his philosophies are noble. Plus, he’d be able to teach me how to shoot damn near perfectly.

Special shoutout to Rock Lee and Might Guy, though. I really considered both of them for this but I remembered that Might’s not all that great of a sensei to Tenten and Neji. He may be great for Rock Lee, but he’s pretty much never training Neji and Tenten. You could argue Neji doesn’t ‘need’ it, but Tenten needs all the help she can get.

As for Rock Lee, I would’ve chosen him in a heartbeat if I didn’t think his training regimen would kill me lol

6) What Stat Would You Considering to be Your Highest (Strength, Intelligence, Stamina/Endurance, Luck, Charisma, etc.) and What One Is Your Weakest?

Charisma for weakest, most definitely. I have the social skills and grace of a sack of hammers.

Highest is….tricky….I have been told I’m pretty strong, though, in my opinion, I’m not really significantly as such. I’d probably say intelligence just because I really like learning. Retaining knowledge, however, is iffy. My memory is garbage.

7) And Finally, What’s Your Ultimate Goal/Mission in this World?

What else would it be?


Err…I mean….I’d help…people…Make the world a better place. Yup.

My Questions

I don’t have a cool story setup for people, I’m kinda bad at that, so let’s have a game theme here!

1) What’s Your Favorite Board Game/Tabletop RPG?

2) You’ve Just Acquired the BEST Co-op Video Game Ever. What Anime/Manga Character Would you Choose to Play with You?

3) What is Your Least Favorite Class/Role in Video/Tabletop Games?

4) What is Your Favorite Anime/Manga Based on a Video Game or Video Game Based on an Anime/Manga?

5) You Can Play One Sport of Your Choosing with One Anime/Manga Character. What Sport and Character Would You Choose?

6) You Can Choose Any Anime/Manga Character to be the Dungeon Master at Your Next D&D Game – Who is it? (Alternatively, What Character Do You Think Would be Able to Create the Best Story?)

7) You Can Steal the Weapon of Any Anime/Manga Character to Use in an Action Video Game. Whose Weapon Do You Steal?

Nominees (Sorry if I nom anyone who has done this already. No pressure to do it either way. :))

Real Neat Blog Award

I’ve been nominated for a ‘Real Neat Blog Award’ by Daiyamanga’s Krystallina! Thank you very much, Krystallina! 😀

This award seems to act very much like the Sunshine award, but with seven questions instead of the ten I was given. Neato! (Puns?)

Here are the rules:

1: Put the logo for the award in your post.

2: Answer the seven questions asked by the person who nominated you.

3: Thank the people who nominated you, linking to their blogs.

4: Nominate any number of bloggers that you like, linking to their blogs.

5: Let them know you nominated them by commenting on their blogs.


Answers to Krystallina’s Questions

1: Would you rather be a Phantom Thief or the cop that chases one?

I’d rather be the thief. >:3 Though, I’m a bit of goody two-shoes, so in reality I’d probably end up as the cop.

2: What series do you think is the most overhyped?

I don’t really follow new anime enough to get a good grasp on that, but in a similar vein I believe the hype for anything Attack on Titan related is really out of hand. The second season isn’t even out yet and it’s already invaded practically every facet of media. I liked AoT, but the long stretches of story that end up with little resolution were a bit too much of a slap for me to get hyped very much for it anymore. I couldn’t even enjoy the manga due to its chicken scratch art (though it was admittedly very detailed on the titans).

3: What series do you think deserves more attention?

That’s a tough one….I wish 07 Ghost got more attention. Then maybe we could actually get a continuation since the series ended on such a cliffhanger. The art is great, the story is solid, the characters are likable and well-designed, the music is gorgeous. It’s just a great series all around.

4: What series would you never watch or read again unless you were paid to?

Hm….I’m bordering between Fushigi Yuugi Eikoden and School Days. Each are basically tied for my most hated anime, but if I had to choose it’d be Fushigi Yuugi Eikoden. Give School Days credit, Makoto may be a horrible person and most of the cast may be horny idiots, but at least he gets his comeuppance in the end. Perhaps too extreme for his crimes, but some payoff anyway.

Mayo in FYE just gets put on a gigantic pedestal after she does all of her deeds, and her acts can definitely been seen as much worse than Makoto’s what with her threatened and attempted baby murder. Everyone forgives her without a thought and she’s accepted as a new BFF in the Suzaku gang and even possibly gets a boyfriend in Miaka’s brother. That series makes me angry just thinking about it. >.<;;

5: What’s your favorite color?

Purple. Though my favorite color combo is black and orange. (Love Halloween)

6: Have you ever listened to Vocaloid music, and would you consider yourself a fan?

I don’t think I’ve ever heard a Vocaloid track full out, though I do have a few friends who are fans. It seems alright, I just never got into it.

7: If you could have any animal for a pet, what would it be?

Branching away from traditional, tamed animals, probably a fox. Branching away from real animals, a flying lemur. (<3 Momo)
