First off, a very happy birthday to [ profile] collarnojutsu!! I suck at presents and cards and things, but at least I can do the birthday wishes thing.

A word of explanation. CNJ always complains that we never listen to her recommendations the first time. A while ago, [ profile] wednesday_10_00 discovered Glee by way of a YouTube video from the the justly famous Single Ladies episode. This was after months of CNJ squeeing about Glee on her journal. So, by way of a mea culpa, [ profile] wednesday_10_00 said that in future, if she proved resistant to a recommendation, the magic word was "Psst, D*****! SINGLE LADIES!"

CNJ has been trying to get me to watch Princess Tutu for over a year. (I meant to, really! But, the backlog!) I was a little uncertain about magical girl show + ballet, but the strong recommendation definitely carried weight. We watched a few episodes at the beach this year, and I was definitely intrigued (enough to order the DVD post haste), but then One Piece happened. (Still on episode 152 and volume 25, BTW.) She finally gave me incentive to finish the series in the form of an AMV and an ultimatum. ^_~

Now, it had taken approximately ten minutes of watching the anime (+ knowing that w_10_00 and cnj both love him) to know that I was going to love Fakir. But it is only now that I grasp that every detail of his character was insidiously crafted by the makers of the anime to inspire in me the perfect storm of redeemed seme moe, with the clear intention of ruining me for any other anime hero in the future.

So, people. In future, if I fail to heed your wise recommendations with appropriate speed, the phrase is "Psst, Sara. FAKIR!" I promise to drop everything and take your recommendation up on the spot. (Though I cannot promise to love anyone as much as Fakir. Even if he does have funny hair.)

Cut for squee and possible spoilers (though maybe that was already kind of spoilery? )

So I will just conclude: the closing vignette-scene of the anime may very possibly be my new favorite thing ever. <3 <3


AND UZURA (zura)

I don't have great answers to any of these questions, and Day 27 and Day 30 are related, so I decided to do them all at once.

Day 27 - Favorite anime opening theme song )
Day 28 - Favorite pokemon )
Day 29 - Favorite school uniform )
Day 30 - Favorite anime ending theme )

Now to tackle all that re-reading, now that I've finally been reunited with my manga. ^__^
sara_tanaquil: (ganbare!)
I really think I chose the wrong version of this meme. Maybe when I'm done, I'll look up the questions in some of the less fanboy-obsessed versions and answer a few of those.

Favorite harem anime )

On the road back to CT today!

While I'm procrastinating on packing up the car, I thought I'd get a start on the "favorite villain" post. Even though I've been back in DC for a couple of days, and would have had the time to update, I've been thoroughly stuck on what to choose. This post is therefore full of waffle.

Day 25: Best anime villain )

Hopefully once I'm back in CT I can wrap this meme up properly. (If I'm not too busy reading all that manga I've been separated from this entire time.)
sara_tanaquil: (chibi_Alek)
Now see, this question is just impossible. Seriously, I'm supposed to be able to pick just one? So, rather than agonize over which hero/heroine of which favorite series we've already discussed to death deserves this honor, I will seize this opportunity to squee about my NEW favorite hero. As of, like, five days ago.

Day 24 - Favorite anime hero or heroine )
sara_tanaquil: (Morning already?)
I think I'll have a better shot at catching up if I don't try to do all the missed days at once, so here's two at least. (Neither of these things is at all like the other one.)

Day 22 - Favorite BL/yuri couple )

Day 23 - Anime you think had the best, or most intriguing art )
sara_tanaquil: (Yukito)
I had to google this to find out what it meant. Apparently, while tsundere means someone who is all huffy and hostile (tsun) on the outside and mushy-sweet-sentimental (dere) on the inside, yandere means somebody who appears to be sweet-as-sugar (dere) on the outside, but is really batsh@t crazy/murderous stalker (yan?) on the inside.

Since I'm not entirely sure why I would have favorite ANYTHING in this category, I'll give a tongue in cheek answer...

Best yandere character )

Day 20

sara_tanaquil: (ganbare!)
Since this is my dominant anime genre (on account of there isn't enough BL anime out there), this is a pretty hard choice. And several obvious candidates (Fushigi Yuugi, Card Captor Sakura...) have already made an appearance or soon will. But, because this is one EVERYONE should watch:

Favorite shoujo anime )
sara_tanaquil: (Yukito)
Man, it is hard to keep up with this when we're having what is without doubt the most gorgeous run of weather EVER at the beach...

Day 18 - Something moe )

Day 19 - Mandatory swimsuit post )

Day 17

sara_tanaquil: (Nowaki_Hiro)
Thank god, the questions are getting easier again. Temporarily.

Favorite tsundere )
sara_tanaquil: (Fujimi bunny love)
Wow, I got way behind. The fact that [ profile] collarnojutsu came to visit for a few days is only part of my excuse. The main reason was that I don't get any of these questions.

My feeble attempts:

Day 13 - Cosplay of your ‘waifu’ or Husbando’ )

Day 14 - current (or most recent) anime wallpaper )

Day 15 - Post a cute Neko-girl )

Day 16 - post a kigurumi cosplay of your favorite anime character )

Day 12: ??

sara_tanaquil: (Studying... with porn!)
Today's post will be sad and lame, because I have NO IDEA how to answer this question.

An ecchi picture from your favorite series )
sara_tanaquil: (kou_clock)
Whoops, yesterday got away from me. Luckily these two are pretty easy (if unoriginal).

Favorite slice of life anime )

Favorite mecha anime )
sara_tanaquil: (tears)
A lot of the other ones are hard, but this one? No competition.

Saddest anime scene )

Days 6-8

sara_tanaquil: (Morning already?)
Looks like I owe a catch-up post, eh? On the upside, am now happily ensconced at the beach (where the weather is lovely and warm, for the moment, and it would be even nicer if the weird chemical smell in the air would go away. Road work??).

These were all hard!

Most annoying anime character )

Favorite anime couple )

Most epic scene )
sara_tanaquil: (chibi-Rapunzel)
This was another one I was stumped by for quite a while. I almost chose Nuriko, who I don't particularly resemble, but who is the only character I've ever cosplayed. Then I realized the answer was

sara_tanaquil: (tulip_Ishuca)
Initially I wasn't sure how to answer this, because I don't really do crushes on anime characters...? And then I remembered this:

I can't believe I'm admitting this out loud )
sara_tanaquil: (rapunzel)
I love this meme because I feel like it might make me start watching more anime again. For years now I've spent far more time studying and reading manga than actually watching anime, and there are so many things I haven't seen.

Favorite anime )
sara_tanaquil: (Sky_Pirate)
I usually hate memes, but this one is too much fun to resist! Also, it is almost summer, I have only a few more papers to grade, and this journal has been far too full of bitterness and grousing of late.

The Plan )

Day 1: Very first anime )

Properly speaking, I suppose I should call it the first anime I recognized as anime, since I was hooked on Speed Racer at age 6, but had no idea that wasn't American. This I knew was something different from the usual Saturday morning cartoons.
