Real Neat Blog Award #2

realneatimg_2787Lita Kino of Lita Kino Anime Reviews was kind enough to nominate me for the Real Neat Blog Award.

Thank you very much, Lita! ゚・:,。★\(^-^ )♪ありがと♪( ^-^)/★,。・:・゚

The Rules:

1. Put the award logo in your blog.

2. Answer 7 questions asked by the person who nominated you.

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

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

5. Let them know you nominated them (by commenting on their blog).

Questions from Lita:

1. What animes would you recommend to watch?
Fullmetal Alchemist and/or Brotherhood are both very good. The original’s opening episode is amazing with its balance of comedy and drama, and it is a great gateway episode for anime. The two series themselves are also great no matter what genres people like.

2. Are you reading any manga at the moment? If so what one?
Oh, no. Not at all.

OK, fine, I just finished rereading Pita-Ten and am rereading the three volumes of Official Fan Book. Su!

3. Do you have a favorite quote from a anime or manga?
“I want to be a penguin mailman!” ~Wapiko, Kingyou Chuuihou! (Goldfish Warning!)

4. How do you make time to blog? If so when do you end up doing it?
My goal is to have one post every 2-3 days, so I try to stay ahead as much as possible, especially since some series are well over 10 volumes long. So I generally start a draft, then read through the series, and then update it whenever I have some free time.

5. Tell us one fact about you.
I am not very good with bugs. Or fast speeds. Or heights. Basically, I’m a wimp.

6. Cheeseburger or noodles?
Cheeseburger. (Well, hamburgers for me actually.)

7. What is your opinion on the way cosplay is today?
It’s amazing how much work they do. You can really feel the love. Such detail! Such effort!

My Nominations:

All About Manga & Anime

Anime Vios

The Anime Madhouse

Daijina Omoide

My Questions:

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

2. What series do you think is overhyped?

3. What series do you think deserves more attention?

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

5. What is your favorite color?

6. Have you ever listened to Vocaloid music, and do you consider yourself a fan?

7. If you could have any pet as an animal, what would it be?

Getting Manga for Cheap Redux and Announcement

I am very excited and honored to have been given the opportunity to post on TheOASG. Yay!

For my first article, I decided to revisit my original “Getting Manga for Cheap” post. Much of the info is the same, but there are additional tips. So make sure you read about all the ways you can get free or reduced-price manga. Don’t forget to check out all the other great posts on OASG! And look forward to even more posts on money-saving offers (and maybe other topics occasionally)!

Sunshine Award

Sunshine AwardAnime Reviewer Girl of Shay-Shay’s Anime Blog was kind enough to nominate me for a Sunshine Award.

Thank you very much, Anime Reviewer Girl!! ゚・:,。★\(^-^ )♪ありがと♪( ^-^)/★,。・:・゚

The Rules:

If you have been nominated for The Sunshine Award and you choose to accept it, write a blog post about the Sunshine Award in which you:

1. Thank the person who nominated you.

2. Answer the questions from the person who nominated you.

3. Nominate a few other bloggers.

4. Write the same amount of questions for the bloggers you nominated.

5. Notify the bloggers on their blog.

6. Put the award button on your blog.

Questions from Anime Reviewer Girl:

1. Is there an anime you wish didn’t exist?
I love The Powerpuff Girls, but I did not care for Demashitaa! Powerpuff Girls Z. It took away so much of what made the original show good and unique and made it a bland magical girl tale. They should have just made it a new property instead of a spinoff.

2. What anime character do you think would be your rival?
I don’t know why, but I think it might be fun to be the rival of the Cat’s Eye team from Cat’s Eye.

3. If you could have any superpower what would it be?
I think I’d like to be a battle mage like Negi from Negima. So I guess the ability to use magic?

4. What is your favorite movie?
I love Beauty and the Beast and Sailor Moon R: The Movie. The first is a beautiful animated classic, and the latter is all the strengths of the series wrapped up in one gorgeous movie with an epic theme song.

5. Dub or Sub?
I’m a sub person, but I’m not one of those “all dubs are horrible” people. There are dubs that match or surpass the original Japanese.

6. Read or write?
Read.

7. Who is your current anime crush?
Kotobuki Reiji from Uta no Prince-sama and Okita Souji from Hakuoki. That’s not completely a coincidence.

8. What is your favorite Dessert?
I love Hershey’s sundae pies. Absolutely delicious! They’re better at Burger King, though. The temperature is just perfect, and I can’t get the Edward’s Pie versions to have that balance between softness and coldness.

My Nominations:

Coco

Matthew

Steve

My Questions:

1. What manga, anime, or TV series would you like to see have a remake?

2. If you became a magical girl/guy, what would be your speech/catchphrase?

3. What’s something really cool or interesting you own?
