QUESTIONS

Describe a hobby or passion you have through an anime series! For example Shokugeki no Soma if you like cooking or Initial D if you like cars.

I like anime. Himouto! Umaru-chan sums up what I do in my spare time. To quote my Relatable Anime Characters post from 2018, “Pop, snacks, manga, games, comfy clothes and blanket make up my paradise too. ^^”.

Simplify yourself to an Anime Archetype (Tsundere, Dojiko, Shota, Shounen-Protagonist etc) don’t overthink what an archetype is, go with your gut. Name a character that is also that Archetype.

Kuudere?

Describe your looks through comparing it with anime characters, you can decide how many!

When I’m at home, I look like Moriko Morioka from Recovery of an MMO Junkie. Messy hair, dark circles under the eyes, and comfy clothes. Just need to add glasses. This is me right now:

When I look more presentable, Airi from Erased.

Describe your romantic bias and or sexuality through anime characters you find attractive. insert the Will Smith meme from at the movies/ ta-da

I recently wrote a post called My Husbandos. My favourite anime character is Izaya Orihara from Durarara!! His looks are kind of plain compared to other anime characters but I take everything into account.

Tell us about your day to day life and what anime that would fit into! You can be creative here!

Now that there’s a pandemic going on, my life has changed completely. I went from going out almost every day to being at home all the time. MMO Junkie because Moriko Morioka stays at home all the time.

I begin my day with a cup of coffee.

Steam Community :: :: Looking for me?

After breakfast and coffee, I check my work email. If I have a new task, I do it. If not, I do my other, lesser priority tasks. I can work any time of the day but I prefer to work during the day.

Then, I make lunch. I check Twitter and my blog throughout the day when I feel like it. I watch shows and blog when I feel like it.

A few hours after dinner, I work on my side job. I do that until I feel tired.

Sleepy Princess in the Demon Castle Episode 1 Review - Nicchiban

Describe your hopes and dreams through an anime character.

One thing I’ve learned is that I’m not a materialistic person. I just want to live comfortably. I want my family to stay healthy and for me to find something meaningful in every day.

The Lockdown Tag

I wasn’t nominated for this, but I saw this on Hilary’s blog and it seemed fun. You can read the rules on her post since I’ll just be answering the questions.

It looks like there are two sets of questions on her post so I’ll just answer them all. LOL.

1. What country do you live in?

I live in British Columbia, Canada.

2. Favourite book?

I think my favourite book is Japanese Tales of Mystery and Imagination by Edogawa Rampo. My favourite short story from the book is The Human Chair. It’s a horror short story collection.

3. How do you spend your time during lockdown?

I work from home. When I’m not working, I watch a lot of YouTube. Lately, I’ve been watching Chuang 2020 clips, Guardian fanmade edits, Zhu Yilong interviews, and cooking videos.

Earlier during the lockdown, I watched many Thai dramas and a bunch of other stuff.

4. Have you tried cooking a new dish because of lockdown?

I’ve tried cooking a lot of new dishes and drinks. I’ve made dalgona coffee, strawberry milk, Thai milk tea, pasta, spicy cold noodles, kimbap, coffee jelly, and more. Since I like to watch cooking videos, I like to try out new recipes as well.

5. Early riser or Night owl?

I am a night owl. I detest mornings and rely on coffee. In fact, I’m writing this at 1:30 AM. I wish I was an early riser but I like the peacefulness and silence of the night.

6. Holiday dream destination?

Japan. I wonder when it will be safe to travel to Japan. I want to go to the popular anime destinations like Ikebukuro (Durarara!!).

7. Favourite food?

I have a lot of favourite foods. I love Asian food the most. I love xiaolongbao, hot pot, noodles (pho, ramen)… the list goes on. I like spicy, savoury, and bitter food and drinks.

I do not like sweet food or drinks.

8. Instagram or Twitter?

Instagram.

9. Favourite cartoon as a child?

Death Note. It’s actually rated 16+ but I watched it when I was in elementary school.

10. What do you prefer on a Saturday night? Netflix or Partying?

Of the two, I would pick Netflix. A lot of the shows I watch aren’t on Netflix, though.


1. Overall, how are you handling the quarantine?

I’m doing okay, but I miss eating out a lot. I miss hanging out with my friends and dressing up. Kind of sad, to be honest.

2. Have you violated any of the restrictions? If yes, what rule(s) did you break?

No. Peoples’ lives are on the line. Now is not the time to be irresponsible.

3. What viral recipes have you tried during the lockdown?

Dalgona coffee.

4. What activities have you missed the most during quarantine?

Celebrating friends’ birthdays and also my graduation. I also miss drinking bubble tea. I used to drink it every week.

My friend surprised me with a paper bouquet on the day of my virtual grad! I didn’t even attend my virtual grad but my friend did. T_T

5. Do you wear a mask when you leave the house?

Yes.

6. Are you an essential worker? If yes, what is your job title?

No.

7. How do you exercise during the lockdown?

My friend shares her screen and we watch a 20-minute workout video every other day. We follow the trainer in the video and we help motivate each other.

8. Have you subscribed to any new subscription services since the lockdown started?

No.

9. What did/does your daily schedule look like before the pandemic started?

I was at practicum 4 days a week and at the university once every two weeks. On the days I went to campus, I went to Anime Club. I attended weekly online Anime Club exec meetings and went to work on the weekend. I also worked from home for my other job. Since I didn’t have many assignments, I watched shows when I got home.

10. Do you think that the pandemic is getting better or worse?

I’m not the most informed person on this topic. I don’t know because Wave 2 is approaching and I don’t know what to expect when it comes. Restrictions have been lifted so I think it’s better than before. However, I don’t know if things will change for the better or worse. 2020 is very unpredictable.

Super Happy Love Blog Award

Thanks for the nomination, Yomu. Yomu explicitly wrote in his post that he expects a response from me, so I guess I have no choice.

RULES

  1. Thank the one who tagged you and if at all please tag the original post as well. This is my first blog tag and a bit of a passion project so I would like to see where it spreads! Oh and use Super-Happy-Love as a tag!
  2. Display the Super Happy Love Logo in your post. Share the rules!
  3. Choose a minimum of 2 out of these 6 prompts (see this original post for prompts) to answer in this blog! More is always allowed!
  4. You are actively encouraged not to bring negativity into this tag.
  5. Tag 6 bloggers you love so they can take on this challenge as well. 
  6. Everyone who comments something lovely about your post ALSO gets nominated. (Should they so choose).

WRITE SOMETHING ABOUT A FANDOM OR FRANCHISE YOU LOVE.

I like The Untamed/Mo Dao Zu Shi fandom. It’s nice to see people cosplay in hanfu. It’s also nice to listen to covers of the songs played by traditional Chinese instruments.

TELL US SOMETHING ABOUT A CHARACTER YOU LOVE.

I love Tanjiro from Demon Slayer. I wrote about how he inspires me (you can read about that here). He’s kind to everyone, including demons, and he never gives up.

TELL US SOMETHING ABOUT A PIECE OF MUSIC YOU LOVE.

My favourite anime opening is the first Tokyo Ghoul opening. It’s Unravel by TK from Ling tosite Sigure. It’s perfect. It’s everything I have ever wanted in a song. It suits my tastes in music perfectly.

WRITE SOMETHING ABOUT YOURSELF YOU LOVE!

I think that I have good taste in shows. Okay, that sounds biased but other people tell me that I give good recommendations. It makes me feel like I am doing a good job at reviewing anime and doing my part of introducing good shows to people, especially underrated ones. It’s a shame when good anime goes unnoticed.

I think I’m also good at getting people to watch the shows I like. I’ve gotten my classmates, anime club friends, and blogger friends to watch Kaiji and many more shows.

NOMINATIONS

Once again, I’m opening this up to anyone who wants to do this.

Unique Blogger Award

Thanks Moyatori for nominating me. Moyatori posts anime lists, reviews, and song translations. You can check out their blog here.

I feel a little ashamed by the fact that I haven’t done these award posts. I get at least 5 nominations every two months. >< If I do all the awards, then over half of my posts will be on them. Moyatori’s questions seem pretty quick to answer. Plus, we go to the same school. Although, I haven’t met Moyatori in real life.

RULES

  1. Display the award!
  2. Thank the person who nominated you, and post a link to their blog on your blog. (Try and include a little bit of promotion!)
  3. Answer the questions they’ve written for you!
  4. Nominate 8-13 bloggers and give them three questions in the spirit of sharing love and solidarity within our blogging family!

QUESTIONS FOR ME

  1. Why did you choose the avatar you have?
  2. Do you share your blogging experience with people you know in real life? To what extent?
  3. Do you think your blogger persona differs from your real life personality?

 

  1. I haven’t changed my avatar since January 2015, lol. I chose the bubble tea picture because I like bubble tea. Now everyone identifies me through the avatar so I don’t plan on changing it any time soon.
  2. Just about everyone who has me on social media knows about my blog. That’s because I link my blog to my Facebook and Instagram accounts. I do tell some people about my blog, but most people find it through social media. They ask me about it later or tell me they read my blog. I don’t have my family on social media so I don’t think my parents know about my blog. My brother does but he doesn’t check it. I prefer things to be this way because I want to be able to blog without being confronted about it. For example, if I write that I am feeling negative, I don’t really like it when people ask me to explain my situation.
  3. Mostly the same. I try to be my most authentic self on my blog but it’s difficult to express myself 100% the same because I don’t blog about every aspect of my life. I generally blog when I’m in a good mood so maybe the more negative side of me is not being shown.Β I do wear glasses all the time, even though I generally don’t wear them in my pictures.

MY QUESTIONS

  1. What is your favourite song?
  2. How many months or years have you been a fan of anime? Also, how old is your blog?
  3. Do you think you will quit blogging one day? Why or why not?

NOMINATIONS

I will open it to anyone because I don’t like choosing bloggers. I want to nominate more than 50 bloggers every time, lol. Thanks for reading.
