Man, it sure would be nice if WordPress would consistently give me pingback notifications. Anyway, thanks to AnimeQandA for the nomination. If it is additional nominations you seek, Cactus Matt, feel free to crash the Create-A-Story Tag with me. I don’t know exactly how you guys would do it over there, but I’m sure you could think of something.
1. Thank the person who nominated you and link back to their blog.
2. Answer the questions sent to you.
3. Nominate around 10 others.
4. Create your own set of questions for your nominees and display the rules.
- Who’s the last anime character you identified with and why?
Physically, I look and sometimes feel like Goro from Darling in the FranXX.
Generally speaking, though, I find that I gravitate toward and more often identify with the underdogs and minor/supporting characters of any given series. You know, the Krillins/Tiens/Yamchas, Goros, and Mumen Riders of the world. I often times view myself as a minor character—somehow even in my own story.
One of these days, though, I’ll have my moment. Juuuust you wait!
- Is there an anime universe you would want to live in?
I am in near total agreement with Matt on this one. Shawn and I had a show once where we discussed anime worlds we would and would not want to live in. The KonoSuba world and its starter town seem like fantastic places to be. There’s some degree of danger, but for the most part it’s chill, and no strike-through here—I would totally check out that succubus club.
I mean, you can’t knock it till you try it, right?
- I hope you answered the last question – what would your job be in that universe?
As much as I want to believe I’d be kickass ranger out there saving the world from the forces of the Demon King. I’d probably be more of a part-time/weekend adventurer—the daily occupation would more realistically be a blacksmith or shopkeeper.
- Who would you like to do a collab with (real or imaginary)
Wellllll, now that I’ve been bitten by this creative writing bug, it might be fun to co-write a story with Hana Oshiroi from Ben-To, particularly since I’ll soon hopefully be starting that alternate version of Fire Mountain Romance.
- Is there a character trait (physical or personality) that you always love to see?
Wait a minute, is this an anime or an IRL thing? Does it make difference for me? Nah, we’re all just characters in the really lame MMORPG we call life. In either case, I generally like characters that are intelligent, and have a strong sense of honor. Having one or two fun quirks is also a plus. For instance, Lalatina Dustiness Ford A.K.A. Darkness.
By far the most sexually deviant of the KonoSuba main cast, Darkness is also the most noble. She loves—and I mean loves—a rough fight, but she comes from a noble bloodline and legitimately views protecting those under her family’s domain as a responsibility. THAT is the kind of person I like to see.
You know, in hindsight, maybe just going though and trying to answers these in real time was a poor decision. Whatever, same rules (or lack thereof) apply as usual. If you want to take this and run with it, go right ahead. Just remember to link back to this post when you do. Irina’s questions are fine, but you may substitute any or all of the following:
If you were a food, what kind would you be?
If you lived in a fantasy type series where everyone had special weapons/attack/powers/ etc. what would yours be, and what would you call it?
Do you know The Muffin Man?
