I’ve been nominated for the Sunshine Blogger Award by Jiraiyan of Otaku Orbit, ! Thanks for the nomination! This is the first actual Award challenge I’ve done as I usually didn’t have time in the past. While life is as busy as always this time I definitely wanted to give it a shot and I felt like I knew the answer to most of the questions right away. As per award rules I will be answering the 11 questions posed by Jiraiyan and then at the end I’ll come up with 11 questions of my own and nominate 11 other blogs. (Apologies in advance if you’ve already done this award challenge and I sent you a challenge! Feel free to disregard as of course there is no pressure on doing these. Look at me, I’ve missed quite a few already)
What’s your favorite anime genre. Why?
Definitely Card game anime. It’s a tough call between that and classic Shonen, but there’s just nothing quite like the exhillaration of a good card fight. That may sound satrical, but most of the card shows I’ve seen are easy 9/10 material. For example, Yu-Gi-Oh GX and Cardfight Vanguard both reached my top 5 greatest anime of all time list. Most of the other card shows are very close behind.
What’s your favorite series in that genre?
My all time favorite card show is Yu-Gi-Oh GX. After that I greatly enjoy Cardfight Vanguard and then we have all of the other Yu-Gi-Oh spinoffs and Cardfight sequels. There’s also the Buddyfight franchise which is quite excellent as well.
How often do you blog?
I blog everyday in some capacity as I work on reviews and upcoming fights, but I don’t always get to publish something everyday. It’s something that I’m trying to work on to make the site more consistent, but I probably won’t have anything concrete until maybe around June. Mainly I tend to publish whatever I worked on during the week on Saturday and Sunday.
What aspect of your blog do you love the most?
Definitely the fight aspect. I used to enjoy going on debating sites to see what people thought about certain matchups, but I always wished they had some kind of record system implemented so you could see how many times they won and lost. It’s why I added such a records page to this blog.
What advice would you give a new blogger?
Definitely be consistent. (Even though I’m bad at that) Even if it’s a very small post, it’s good to have something up every day to build up your content and it also keeps viewers around as they know to keep checking for new content. Also, deactivate your full post from showing up in email notifications. You want it to just be an excerpt or people will read your entire post without needing to click on your site. You end up losing quite a few views.
What anime/manga series are you looking forward to?
I’m definitely looking forward to the upcoming Dragon Ball Super sequel, but I suppose that isn’t 100% confirmed so I’ll pick a different title. There’s a new Cardfight Vanguard prequel coming out that will focus on the early adventures of Kai which will be awesome since he’s one of the best characters. Astra: Lost in Space should also be pretty fun since I just read the manga.
Which is worst, anime video games or movies?
So to make sure, I think this question is saying which is worse, video games based on anime or movies based on anime. If so, then definitely movies as they tend to not really understand how to do a proper adaption. If it’s just between the 3 mediums as a whole, then I’ll have to go with movies. Nothing beats a good video game and anime is a close second as far as hobbies go.
Which video game universe would you like to visit?
Definitely the Metroid verse. It’d be cool to have a sci-fi armor like that and I love futuristic places. Hopefully Ridley doesn’t show up to eat me though. Unless I’m really high up the food chain my armor will probably be pretty weak.
Which manga series would you like to see become an anime?
Definitely Gamaran and Liar Game. Gamaran had some of the best fight scenes I’ve ever read. The choreography was absolutely amazing. Meanwhile Liar Game is probably the most intricate title I’ve read with the games being very well done. I think it could become the next Death Note if animated well.
What’s your most popular post? Why do you think that is?
My most popular post of all time is Mario vs Luigi which barely beats out Bass vs Minnie Mouse. If the latter had won I don’t know how I’d explain that. Mario vs Luigi makes sense I’d say since it’s a classic fight and the image I used was pretty high on the Google Search so a lot of people would click it and find me. Definitely a fun one to have at the top.
If you could transform into a mythological creature, which one would it be?
I’d say a Griffon. Having wings is always something I’d like and I think they can shoot fireballs in some mythos so that covers my long range options. Then I can just soar around having a blast!
