Day 21 – Link to your favorite fanfiction

I haven’t read many fanfictions these days, but there’s one that I’ve come across a little while ago that I really, really liked. It’s a Kawoshin fanfic and it’s right over here, if you fancy reading it ^^.

Day 20 – Favorite theme (school life, vampires, neko, etc.)

Hmmm… well let’s get one thing out of the way – I sure as fudge don’t go for the whole neko thing… as of yet :D.

Thinking about the BL stories I’ve read/watched so far (which sadly isn’t all that much), I mostly prefer the more realistic slice of life/school life themed stories. I guess it’s kind of nice to see a pair’s relationship in the context of their everyday life and struggles and whatnot (not to mention the comedy that can come out of it ೕ(˃̵ᴗ˂̵ ๑) ).

sih

For example, one of the things that made Sekai-Ichi Hatsukoi all the more entertaining for me was all the info about what it’s like to work in the publishing industry, the process that a manga goes through before actually being printed, Onodera having to adjust to his new workplace and all the drama that it comes with, etc.

Day 19 – BL manga you think should be animated

First of all, can I just say that I can definitely remove Doukyuusei from that list, as its adaptation will premiere this February??? (((o(*゚▽゚*)o))). tumblr_madfjwU90k1qfkm7e

Hormones aside, I think I’d like to see several (well ideally, loads) of BL manga adapted for the big/small/medium/etc. screen ^^.

  • I can’t get  enough for it, so I still secretly hope that In these words will one day be made in to an anime :D.
  • Pretty much all the nice BL that Kyuugou-sensei writes ^^.
  • Saruiu (洒涙雨) by Hoko-sensei.
  • Seven days (セブンデイズ) by Takarai Rihito-sensei.
  • Hidamari ga kikoeru (ひだまりが聴こえる) by Fumino Yuki-sensei.
  • …and the list can go on.

Still, while we eagerly await for more better-quality BL to be animated, I’ll just say that I’m very thankful to all the mangaka who spend their time and energy on writing and drawing what they do and keeping in touch with the community (⋈◍>◡<◍)。✧♡.

PS: I know I skipped a day, but that’s because I’m saving that post for when I finish reading Sweet pool. There are other BL stories that broke my heart, but I want to try and include a bit more titles throughout the challenge :D:D.

As always, thanks for stopping by! 🙂

Day 17 – Favorite BL website

Today’s post is gonna be really short, as I don’t really know what more to say other than what’s in the title. I don’t really have a favourite BL website (as i mostly just google what I’m looking for and see where that takes me :D), but one website that I really like is aarinfantasy .

So, I guess I’ll take the opportunity to thank the people at aarinfantasy and everyone else who’s ever written, drawn, translated, scanned or taken the time to spread any BL content in any way. Not to mention all the help and support one can find on their forums.

As always, thanks for stopping by! 🙂

Day 30 – An anime you wish never ended and continued on

Although I believe everything should end at some point and that dragging a story for too long would only be detrimental to it, if I’d have to name one title that would be No. 6.

image

Just to clarify though – I don’t mean to say that this anime should go on forever. I do however believe that it (the anime) could have been executed better in some ways. The ending, for example, always seemed quite rushed to me. So it would’ve been nice to maybe extend No. 6 by a few more episodes and give the events more space to unfold. Alas, we got what we got. The story of Nezumi and Shion is still amazing though and I’m glad I stumbled upon this anime a few summers ago ^^.

As always, thanks for stopping by! 🙂

Day 29 – An anime you wished was real

Part of me wants to go all – every anime should be real!!!! But that would probably result in one heck of a clusterfudge :D:D.

So if I’d have to choose one particular anime, I think I’d go with Haibane Renmei (灰羽連盟). I really like the peaceful world created within this anime and the idea of just having this place in between everything where you get to spend some time and focus on the more important and simple things in life ^^.

As always, thanks for stopping by! 🙂

Day 28 – Favourite quote from any anime character

I’m pretty sure I might just remember a bunch of other quotes as soon as I finish writing this and go all ‘fuuuuuuudge, I should’ve mentioned this and/or that as well’. In the meantime though, I’ll go with the first quote that came to mind (and that stuck with me ever since I first heard it):

image

“A long time ago, Nunally, Suzaku, and I talked about something. We wondered what happiness would look like if we could give it a physical form. If I’m not mistaken, I think it was Suzaku that said that the shape of happiness might resemble glass. His reasoning made sense. He said that even though you don’t usually notice it, it’s still definitely there. You merely have to change your point of view slightly, And then that glass will sparkle when it reflects the light. I doubt that anything else could argue its own existence more eloquently.”

Day 27 – Most badass scene from any anime character

Warning!! Spoilers for F/Z lie ahead xD.

Ok so this, imho, is one of the most epic and awesome scenes out there ^^. First of all, we get to see how amazingly powerful both these servants actually are. Then Rider finally sees his dream fulfilled and though Gilgamesh is a meanie most of the time, we get to see the more noble and respectful side of him once more ^^.

Rider was charismatic and awesome as fudge from the start and the fact that he checked out in such an epic way is further proof of just how brilliant a character he is :D.

As always, thanks for stopping by! 🙂

Day 26 – Best anime fight

Well, I know this is gonna be a wee bit on the general side, but my answer for this post is – pretty much any fight that Claire Stanfield’s (Baccano!) involved in xD.

image

Gotta love his moves (what with him being a former acrobat and all) and how insanely crazy he is (not unlike most of Baccano!‘s cast really :D). So yeah, go watch Baccano! if you haven’t already and you’ll know what I’m talking about :D:D.

Day 25 – Saddest anime death

SPOILER ALERT for Grave of the fireflies incoming!!!! (although it’s not that big of a spoiler considering the anime I’m talking about :(…)

I think I’ll go with Setsuko’s death, from Grave of the fireflies ().

image

Dear God, I remember I cried my eyes out when I first watched this movie. Probably one of the things that made Setsuko’s death even more sad is that, for a moment, you have this glimmer of hope – Seita finally managed to get some food and next thing you know… while Seita’s off to prepare dinner, Setsuko falls alseep and never wakes up again. Just like that. No screaming, no crying, no yelling. No nothing.

I know it sounds cheap, but I just can’t put into words the feelings this movie evokes in me.

As always, thanks for stopping by to have a read! ^^
