Day 16 – Anime with the best animation

Well, pretty much anything animated by Studio Ghibli or ufotable is ‘pure eye candy’ (to use the technical term), but for some reason I think I’ll stick to the Eva rebuild movies for this one ^^.

Now you could say I’m a bit biased, considering the animation quality of the original series, but even that goes out the window when you watch the movies. I don’t know about others, but I think studio Khara did an amazing job animating Eva and all the fights, drama, characters and scenery that come along with it :D:D.

As always, thanks for stopping by! 🙂

Day 11 – Favourite mech anime

Even if there’s a big bunch of drama on the side with it, I have to go with Neon Genesis Evangelion (新世紀エヴァンゲリオン) for this one (both the series and the movies, although I’ll be talking about the series since the remake’s not finished yet).

Yes, the world’s screwed and who else can save it if not a bunch of teenagers (duuh xD) and all that jazz. But (intentionally or not) Eva also depicts some of the drama of actually piloting one of those huge, humanity-saving robots and having to carry all that responsibility on one’s shoulders, not just the butt-kicking that goes down in most mecha shows.Combine that with more drama, comic-relief moments, interesting characters and a twisted ending and you’ve got yourself one heck of an anime ^^.

Day 7 – Your OTP

Ok, I’ll kick off by stating that I still find these kinds of things kinda weird cause I don’t usually find myself shipping characters. Plus I almost never pair up characters that don’t play on the same team in the first place xD. But that’s beside the point just now and with every rule there’s also an exception, so drum roll if you please! xD

*waits for the drum roll….*

Ok, no drum roll then ><.

Aaaaaaaaaaaaanyways, if I’d have to pick an OTP it would probably be Kaworu and Shinji from the Evangelion series ^^.

I mean just look at them! (●♡∀♡) I’ve mentioned elsewhere that Kaworu’s perfection on earth, imho, but another thing that I like about this pair is the contrast between the characters’ personalities and what a good influence Kaworu is on Shinji ^^.

I’ll shush now and leave you with Kaworu and Shinji exchanging looks forever and ever :D:D.

Day 4 – Favourite female anime character ever

Here’s another list coming your way ^^.

Kaname Madoka (from Mahou Shoujo Madoka Magica)

images

Despite seeming quite reserved and indecisive at first, by the end of the series she grows and trusts herself enough to do what she thinks is right (although I think it’s arguable that she had at least some of that self-confidence from the start). I guess what I like most about her is how kind and selfless she is.

Actually the more I think about it, the less I know how to put into words how much she’s moved me by doing what she did and how much I love her as a character. She’s definitely a character that I look up to ^^.

Ryougi Shiki (from Kara no Kyoukai)

Brown-Augen-Blüten-Ryougi-Shiki-Takeuch

(spoiler alert!!!) Although I feel a wee bit like cheating by putting her on this list, since one of the personalities inside her was male, when I think about Shiki I can’t help but consider him as well. Plus, you could argue that he’s isn’t around anymore anyways ( :-< ). (end of spoilers!! :D)

That aside, I’ve always admired how mature and collected Shiki is and you gotta love her ability to hit the nail on the head every now and again :D:D. I’ve found her a fascinating character from the start, most of the time without even knowing why.

Saber (from Fate/Zero)

saber__fate_zero_version_by_getchanceandluck-d4c0j40

Now i’m referring to F/Z specifically because I’ve seen F/SN (the Studio DEEN version) after F/Z and after the awesomeness that was Zero, Stay Night didn’t leave that much of an impression. Don’t get me wrong, Saber’s still awesome in that series as well, but I feel like her character was portrayed better in F/Z. Although I’m pretty sure I’ll be editing this after ufotable’s remake is finished airing and I watch it :D:D.

Aaaaaaanyways. Besides the fact that she’s awesome, Saber is brave, a brilliant fighter, kind, smart and selfless. Not to mention she’s probably one of the most noble characters out there. What’s not not love about her? 🙂

Noda Megumi (from Nodame Cantabile)

Nodame1-e1263675685198

Boy it’s weird to write down her entire name Oo. Either way, Nodame is on the list because she’s one of those awfully goofy, bubbly characters that constantly does whatever she feels like (much to Chiaki’s dismay most of the time xD). She’s a great combination of childish and mature at the same time and she can play the piano.

Katsuragi Misato (from Neon Genesis Evangelion)

Katsuragi.Misato.full.443957

Anyone how’s watched Eva knows that pretty much everyone in that series is really fudged up. But despite having been through quite a few bad things, Misato still manages to keep a positive attitude and go on living her life. Not to mention that she has to deal with a couple of depressed teens whom she manages to keep in check while also acting as a carer and mentor for both of them. Add the fact that she’s a great commander and strategist who trusts her instincts even when faced with seemingly impossible odds and, in this writer’s humble opinion, you’ve got yourself one heck of a character ^^.

Characters I’d still like to mention: Akemi Homura from Mahou Shoujo madoka Magica – because of the sacrifices she’s capable of making, for having the strength to keep going no matter how bleak the situation she was in; San from Mononoke Hime – she fights for what she believes in no matter what the cost; Tooru Taki from Natsume Yuujinchou – she’s a great friend to Natsume and I can’t help but love her obsession with Nyanko-sensei :D.

As always, thank for reading! 🙂

Day 3 – Favourite male anime character ever

Eeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeerm… So yeah, here comes another list :D. Fyi, they’re in no particular order.

Nagisa Kaworu (from Neon Genesis Evangelion)

eva3-2

Now for the life of me I can’t say what made me like Kaworu in the first place, but I do know that ever since I saw the Evangelion series (and the rebuild) he’s stuck with me and I’ve loved him ever since. For some reason, Kaworu’s a joy to watch whenever he’s on screen. Enough said :D:D.

Yuuki Natsuno (from Shiki)

Natsuno

Again, he’s one of those characters I liked from the start, no questions asked. Although if I had to mention a few reasons which make me love him more, here goes – he’s smart, able to keep his calm in one hell of a fudged up situation, he’s a great friend to have and he’s capable of sacrificing even himself if the situation demands it.

Ashitaka (from Mononoke Hime)

Ashitaka-princess-mononoke-17252430-853-480

He’s bound to be among my favourites what with my love for the movie :D. But besides that, what I really admire about him is his calm nature – (spoiler alert!!) when he finds out that he’s cursed, he’ll most likely die as a result of it and he has to leave his village forever, Ashitaka merely accepts these facts and does what he needs to do (end of spoiler alert ^^”). He’s also strong, determined and a very kind person. The more I try to write about him the worse I manage to express myself so I’ll just leave it at that. I guess part of what I’m trying to say is that, imho, Ashitaka’s one of the most noble characters out there.

Clear (from DRAMAtical Murder)

tumblr_mxavrq4Wc61s2xq89o4_500

True, I’m thinking more about the way the character’s presented in the VN, mostly because I haven’t seen the anime yet, but Clear’s a character, now he’s also in an anime and he’s beyond lovely :D:D.

Besides the fact that he’s adorably goofy and very kind and friendly, there’s just something about Clear that makes me like him even when taking into consideration his bad endings. Either that, or I’m into messed up stuff. But hey, aren’t we all? ^^

Lelouch Lamperouge (from Code Geass)

Lelouch-Lamperouge-Zero-lelouch-lamperouge-zero-15571960-600-450

Ok, Lelouch is smart, organised a great strategist and as much of a twisted bastard as he can be sometimes (and despite some of the flaws of Code Geass as a series), the selflessness that he was capable by the end of it all kinda make me place him on my awesome-heroes-of-all-time list :D:D.

Characters I’d still like to mention are: Gilgamesh (from Fate/Zero) – because as much of an a-hole as he’s capable of being he’s also kinda noble in his own way and charismatic as fudge; Shion and Nezumi (from No. 6) – because I always end up with too many butterflies in my stomach when I see those two interacting :D; Matsuoka Rin (from Free!) – another tourmented soul that just so happens to look amazing as well ^^”; Edward and Alphonse Elric (from Fullmetal Alchemist: Brotherhood) – they’re just too awesome; and Kokutou Mikiya (from Kara no Kyoukai) – similar to Kaworu, Mikiya’s like a ray of sunshine in an otherwise pretty dark world.

Ok, that’s it for now ^^.
