Relatable Anime Characters – Part 2

You can read Part 1 here! Note that these are characters that I find relatable – it doesn’t mean that everyone will relate!

1. Morioka from Recovery of an MMO Junkie

We both stare at a screen all day.

We both have an appreciation/love towards lint rollers…

2. Usopp from One Piece

We’re both negative. If anyone has advice on how to be less negative, please write to me.

3. Mikazuki from My Roommate is a Cat

We both like cats, don’t like going outside, have an appreciation towards books, like to write, and don’t take very good care of ourselves.

How I feel when strangers start conversing with me…

Shorter list this time, but that’s all I have for now!

I don’t like making lists because my tastes change all the time, especially because I’m always watching new shows. I think that these two shows will always be my first and second favourite anime though!

1. One Piece

2. Kaiji

I mostly watch psychological or dark/twisted anime. I also like anime with good storytelling (i.e., One Piece, Violet Evergarden, Natsume Yuujinchou) and some Boys Love anime.

Chinjao’s Grudge in One Piece

Please understand that this is my personal view. Opinions are my own.

If you’ve watched the Dressrosa Arc in One Piece, you’ll be familiar with Chinjao, an older character who had a grudge on Garp over an incident that happened many, many years ago. Because Luffy is Garp’s grandson, Chinjao hated Luffy too. Luffy yelled back and said that he had nothing to do with the incident and I thought that was so powerful. This scene reminded me of Japan’s and China’s strained relationship.

Luffy and Chinjao

If you do not have knowledge on the Nanjing Massacre or Unit 731, it would be helpful to read up on those incidents to understand the context of this post. If you are a child, read about those events when you are older!!! Basically, the Japanese military committed atrocious acts during the Second Sino-Japanese War against Chinese and Korean people. Today, the Japanese government has not taken steps to properly acknowledge those acts. It’s one of the big reasons why Japan and China do not have a good relationship today.

Back to One Piece – Luffy yelled that he had nothing to do with Chinjao’s grudge and after their fight, Chinjao and Luffy were on good terms because Luffy made the situation better. I thought this was a very positive message, that we should not hate people who were not directly involved in the incident. We should never forget about the Nanjing Massacre, but I have hope that the current and future generations will work together so that Japan and China can have a good relationship.

I recently got my helix pierced (cartilage piercing). It actually didn’t hurt, but my pain tolerance is fairly high. I don’t feel any pain right now so I think the healing process is pretty good.

I now own volumes 2 to 14 of One Piece!

A couple of people have asked me if I own the first volume. I don’t, because someone bought it before I did. I bought these 13 volumes for $1 each at a book sale! They are brand new and they have shiny covers!

This post reminds me of an older blog post of mine.

Anime Cosplays: Casual Luffy & Detective Conan

Luffy is a character from my favourite anime of all time, One Piece. This is a casual Luffy cosplay because I’m wearing a Luffy gear second shirt from Uniqlo. I’m holding a fan signed by Usopp’s Japanese voice actor, Kappei Yamaguchi!

I also cosplayed as Conan from Detective Conan. I’ll cosplay him again in the future (Ran too!).

My Love for One Piece

This post was inspired by Fed’s blog post on his love for Final Fantasy XIV.

Taking Pictures

The Brook wall art was taken at Ki Tea House Cafe, and the devil fruit cake was made by a cake vendor at Anime Revolution.

Fan & Autograph

The fan was a gift from a friend. Kappei Yamaguchi, the seiyuu of Usopp, signed my fan and wrote ‘Usopp’ under his signature! I waited two hours in total, and it was worth it.

The Chopper plush was a birthday gift. I have several One Piece posters.

Don’t get me wrong – I don’t think owning stuff makes you a “bigger” fan at all. I don’t own a ton of One Piece things but I do own quite a lot of anime things in general. I like to own anime stuff because it makes me happy. I like to see things that I like around me.

To me, being a fan of something or someone just means that you really like it. You don’t have to own merchandise, and you don’t have to know everything about the show. A word of advice: Don’t call someone a “fake fan” because that’s really rude. 🙂 Maybe you are quick to assume their love for the show, and that kind of elitism is toxic. 🙂
