50 Questions

For my first post I will answer this questionnaire I found this on @teanubis‘s blog post. Here goes…

Questions about Anime

1. Who is your favorite male anime character?

Akito Tenkawa from Nadesico. He aspires to just be a normal cook but must man up and accept his destiny as a pilot.

2. Who is your favorite female anime character?

A hard question since female characters are sort of the reason I like anime so much. Well,

3. What is your favorite anime soundtrack?

Nadesico TV OST. I’ve listened to it more than any other soundtrack. All of the tracks are very good and sound as if they are from a theatrical movie.

4. What is your favorite anime opening + animation?

Overman King Gainer. This gets me pumped up and happy! What a great anime!

5. What is your favorite anime ending + animation?

Please Save My Earth. The way this anime was able to create nostalgia in me was remarkable. Nostalgia for a past I never had. All culminating with the ending song and animation. Wonderful.

6. What is your favorite anime scene?

Epilogue for Turn-A Gundam. I love how it shows what happens to all of the characters after the end and is a solid conclusion with no to be continued after wards.

I’m not going to link the video for obvious reasons.

7. If you could meet an anime character who would it be?

Mix! She’s such a tsundere! I’d love to flirt with her! And maybe more…

8. What anime character is most similar to you in terms of personality?

Andy W Hall.

9. What is your favorite thing about anime?

Anime is able to appeal to it’s fans consistently and not be bogged down with whatever is politically or socially in vogue outside of the anime fandom. Anime lives and dies based on it’s sales so it must appeal to and satisfy the true fans who buy it.

10. What is your least favorite thing about anime?

I only answer positive questions.

11. Who is your favorite anime couple?

Keiichi & Belldandy. The eternal anime couple that have been together in the ongoing manga relationship for my entire life.

12. Who is your favorite anime animal?


13. What anime would make a good game?

A lot of anime already have games for them. I don’t like questions about games since games are not anime.

14. What game would make a good anime?

Besides the fact that all of the good games either have anime cut scenes or eventually become anime already?

15. What was the first anime you ever watched?

Teknoman. Blew my mind. It was like watching a dream (at the time, now it’s just a badly dubbed old mecha anime).

16. Do you think you’ll ever stop watching anime?


17. What is your favorite genre of anime?

Mecha anime with cute girls and overt romantic elements. Pretty much all I can get into nowadays.

18. What is your least favorite genre of anime?

I only answer positive questions.

19. Are you open about watching anime with people you know?


20. Have you ever been to Japan?

No, don’t care about going either. I’d rather go to Scotland and the rest of the U.K. first.

21. What anime was the biggest let down for you?

ZZ Gundam even with the warning of mediocrity beforehand. The scenes that brought back the music from Zeta Gundam just reminded me how much the series fell in quality. Also it makes the list since I watched every single episode of it. It is not completely without it’s merits but anything good is overshadowed by the bad. The good is Puru btw.

22. What anime was better than you expected?

Infinite Stratos. I have a positive bias against this kind of anime but I still wasn’t that enthused at first. But I think after the first or second episode it really got rolling with the moe feelings.

23. What is the best anime fight scene?

The Macross Frontier dogfights with idols singing in the background. Specifically I’m thinking of the first dogfight+music scene for the first Macross Frontier movie. I can’t find it on youtube though.

24. Who is your anime waifu?

Ruri Hoshino. She has been my wife ever since I watched the movie.

25. What was your favorite video game as a child?

This is not an anime question. Stop asking questions about videogames! I bet you’re a real idiot. You probably don’t even buy anime. You probably just use all your money to pay for Xbox Live and buy the latest sixty dollar video games. You’re such a faggot. What a waste of a questionnaire. You could have asked a question about my favorite anime director, anime character designer, favorite composer, favorite seiyuu. BUT NOOOOOOOO! You have to ask idiotic video game questions and then 25 questions about me like if I like dogs or cats. Oh boy surely my affinity for dogs is more important than being knowledgeable about anime directors?! I’m hijacking this and creating my own questions from here on.

Questions About Me



Here are my custom questions I’ve added myself.

Who is your favorite anime director?

Tatsuo Sato just for directing Nadesico. Thank you, Tatsuo-san.

Who is your favorite anime composer?

Yoko Kanno. Without her all of us wouldn’t think the same about anime. All the anime she has touched have become classics. And would not have had the emotional impact if it wasn’t for her talent.

Who is your favorite male anime seiyuu?

Norio Wakamoto for his memorable performance of Onsokumaru. And his many other roles and performances.

Who is your favorite female anime seiyuu?

Megumi Nakajima for her wonderful performance of Ranka Lee. Her role as Sazanka and all of her musical performances.

Who is your favorite animation character designer/animation director/design etc?

Kana Ishida. He did a lot of design and animation work for Code Geass and Oreimo. And he really shines in his character designs for the females of Aquarion EVOL. They are all beautiful and unique and it’s all thanks to him.

Who is your favorite questionnaire addendum writer?
