The actual collab post is on The Pantless Anime Blogger’s blog. This was my first collab (I’ve only done two). We talked about One Piece! I’m super impressed that TPAB watched an entire arc for this collab.
If you’ve been following me for a while, you probably know that I love Kaiji and other FKMT series.
Chang and Mario would be on this list if Kaiji got a season three. I am hoping for it to happen…
2) Turtle from Rainbow
Turtle from Rainbow is the best friend one could have. He deserves so much recognition.
3) Ayanokoji from The Classroom of the Elite
I’ve written about Ayanokoji before, but he’s the most unfazed character I’ve seen. Having him as the MC was a breath of fresh air.
4) Seiya from Cautious Hero
Cautious Hero’s a funny anime. You can read my impressions of the first episode here.
5) Mafuyu from Given
Mafuyu’s voice is so good. I’m really impressed with his VA. I can’t wait to watch the Given movie.
6) Tanjiro from Demon Slayer
Tanjiro is so sweet and caring. I’ve written about Tanjiro before (click here to read the post). He inspires me to never give up.
7) Nezuko from Demon Slayer
Nezuko is adorable. She feels the same amount of care towards Tanjiro and she’s very strong.
8) Haru from My Roommate is a Cat
In my review of the anime, I wrote that in the second half of each episode, the story is retold from the cat’s point of view. Haru seems more mature than the human MC in some ways.
9) Naofumi from The Rising of the Shield Hero
Naofumi went through so many cursed events, which resulted in a great change in his personality. He went from being naive to cynical. He was the true hero while the rest did more harm than good.
10) The Queen from Shield Hero
Thanks to the Queen, Naofumi got justice and cleared his name.
11) Levi from Attack on Titan
Who doesn’t like Levi?
12) Izaya from Durarara!!
Izaya is my favourite anime character. I wrote about the reasons I like him in a post. I even have a DRRR ita bag because of him.
13) Sakurai from Recovery of an MMO Junkie
Sakurai is so wholesome.
14) Hirotaka from Wotakoi
15) Mii-kun from How to Keep a Mummy
Mii-kun is adorable.
16) Airi from Erased
Airi’s really cool. I wish we saw more of her.
17) Satoru from Erased
Erased is about a man who goes back in time to prevent a series of murders. He goes back into his body from when he was a child but everything else (memories as an adult, cognitive skills, etc.) remains the same.
18) Aizawa from My Hero Academia
This was a good episode.
19) Conan from Detective Conan
Like Satoru from Erased, Conan is also transformed into a kid.
20) Laboon from One Piece
One Piece has a lot of characters. In fact, there’s over a thousand of them. Here’s a few of them.
21) Chouchou from One Piece
It was characters like Chouchou that made me like One Piece so much.
22) Ace from One Piece
23. Luffy from One Piece
24) Juuzou from Tokyo Ghoul
Juuzou is one of my favourite characters.
25) Ye Xiu from The King’s Avatar
Ye Xiu is a cool protagonist. I really like “starting over” and “secret identity” type of shows.
26) Senku from Dr. Stone
Senku is a genius.
27) Reigen from Mob Psycho
I loved Mob Psycho, especially the second season. I don’t remember the context for this at all…
28) Tokuchi from One Outs
One Outs is a really good psychological anime.
29) Saiki from Saiki
The Japanese VA who voiced Seiki also voiced Izaya and Levi. I love his characters.
30) Twelve from Zankyou no Terror
The bike scene in this anime is amazing.
Two-thirds of these characters are main characters. To me, a likeable protagonist makes all the difference.
Pick a favorite series/movie for each letter of the alphabet. For titles starting with “a” “an” or “the” use the first letter of the next word of the title.
Since many titles have multiple names based on the language that you are using please pick one language for the entire list (Use all English titles or all Japanese titles) and let the readers know which language you will be using. If a title has the same name regardless of the language then it can be used in any list.
If you don’t have a title that fits under a particular letter, you can name another favorite from a different letter in its place, just indicate which letter spot you are using for that series. This can be done up to three times. If you can’t fill a spot then you can leave it blank. No more than 26 total series are allowed.
Including a picture for each series is encouraged.
Share who tagged you for this challenge and nominate 3 more to try it themselves and include links to their blogs.
Just have fun with this challenge. I wanted to get everyone to share some favorite series and to spread the word about awesome blogs!
I’m sorry, but I’m going to cheat and use English and Japanese titles. >< I have two reasons. 1) I use English titles for certain anime and Japanese titles for other anime. I don’t have a rule for this. For example, Zankyou no Terror has always been Zankyou no Terror for me.
2) I don’t have a lot of favourite titles. If I stick with one language, I don’t think I can still call them my favourite anime.
Anyway, this is my blog so I don’t think rules matter that much. ❤
I will also write my 2nd and 3rd picks for some letters!
Since I will be writing my runner-ups, I don’t think I need to do Rule #3 (another rule I’m breaking, hahaha).
I can fill out all the letters (i.e. put down xxxHolic for X) but I don’t know if I can call them my favourites…
1. ALL the Straw Hats (especially Monkey D. Luffy, Roronoa Zoro, and Usopp)
It’s really rare for me to like all of the main characters in an anime. Most of the time, I like the villain more than the main characters LOL.
I know that a lot of people don’t like Usopp, but he’s one of the most realistic characters. So many crazy things happen in the world of One Piece. Who wouldn’t be anxious?
2. Portgas D. Ace
There’s not a single thing I don’t like about Ace.
3. Trafalgar Law
Trafalgar Law treats his crew mates so well. (He’s the one wearing a hat… LOL)
4. Buggy the Clown
Buggy was a villain. I only started liking him during the Impel Down Arc. Impel Down is one of my favourite One Piece arcs, even though Luffy was the only Straw Hat in the arc. It was the arc when I began liking a lot of the former villains.
When I watched Impel Down and Marineford, I looked forward to Buggy’s scenes the most because they were hilarious.
5. Caesar Clown
To be honest, there’s nothing good about this guy.
I think that the Punk Hazard Arc was one of the most terrifying arcs. Caesar Clown makes a great villain. I didn’t start to like him until after he was captured by the Straw Hats and Law though, hahaha. After that arc, he had some cute and funny moments.
I LOVE HIS LAUGH SO MUCH.
Crocodile was a villain that I started liking in Impel Down. I was really impressed when he helped Luffy during the Marineford Arc.
7. Mr. 2 Bon Clay
Bon Clay used to work under Crocodile. I didn’t like him until Impel Down. Bon Clay sacrificed so much so that Luffy could save his brother. I felt so much loyalty from Bon Clay. He’s truly one of the best characters in One Piece.
8. Boa Hancock
I didn’t really care for Boa Hancock until she started helping Luffy. I guess I like the characters who help Luffy and the rest of the Straw Hats.
Regardless, she’s one of the strongest female characters in One Piece and I think that’s worth mentioning.
Sugar is a villain that worked under Donquixote Doflamingo. I don’t like what she did to the people in Dressrosa but for some reason, I still like her.
I like Usopp’s fights because they are really funny so I think that Sugar’s battles with Usopp probably left an impression on me.
About half of the characters on this list are villains, or former villains. I didn’t like most of these villains until after their arc ended, hahaha. My favourite characters are either really powerful or comic relief characters.
If you’ve watched or read One Piece, who are your favourite characters?
I decided to take part in the books and outfits challenge. This is not a cosplay, but my interpretation of an outfit suitable for One Piece. It is very simple and of course, I’m wearing Luffy’s straw hat.
I am not caught up on One Piece (I know, I have to…) but I’ll try to answer these as best as I can. The first few arcs of the anime were the best for me.
There are over 900 episodes. I think my favourite episode is when Luffy, Zoro, Sanji, Nami and Usopp were about to enter the Grand Line. I remember replaying this scene several times because it was such a special moment for me. Everyone has a different reason for becoming a pirate but they all work together. Q_Q
There are over 30 arcs but my favourite arc is the Enies Lobby arc. The Pantless Anime Blogger and I worked on a collab back in February 2018 on this arc! Wow, it’s been nearly a year.
There are two parts to the collab- it’s long! You can find them on TPAB’s blog. 🙂
Favourite Opening Song
There are over 20 opening songs but my favourite opening is Hikari E by The Babystars. It’s one of the earlier openings from when I had just gotten into One Piece. Back then, One Piece was my world.
There are over 1000 characters but this one is easy to answer. My favourite character is Roronoa Zoro. Luffy is my second favourite character.
I like Zoro because he is fiercely loyal to his captain Luffy, has so much trust in his friends, is strong, and has cute sides to him as well.
Favourite Straw Hat
There are over 15 movies but I have only seen a couple. My favourite movie from what I have watched is One Piece Film: Gold.
I admit that I did not like you when I was in elementary school. I was turned away by the art style but in my second year of university, I gave you another chance. It was completely a spontaneous decision, but it’s one of the best spontaneous decisions I’ve made.
I also believe that I did not have the maturity to understand some of the themes at a younger age. I would not have appreciated the series to the fullest extent. Some people think that anime is only for children. That is an unfortunate misconception.
While the 900+ episode count may be intimidating, I do not have to worry about “missing” the series. One Piece is always there for you when you are feeling down or bored. I’ve spent many hours watching One Piece. I had a lot of free time. Not so much now because I’m always working, but all those hours watching One Piece were well spent. I wouldn’t have it any other way. I’ve learned so much from watching One Piece. I would love to travel, like the pirates in One Piece. I’ll work hard so that I will be able to do that. ^^
I dislike rewatching things. One Piece, however, is an exception due to how long it is. Eiichiro Oda is phenomenal at telling stories. It taught me what friendships can look like. I’ve cried numerous times and laughed so hard that my stomach hurt. Some days I feel nothing. I’ve felt everything at once when I watched One Piece.
From the bottom of my heart, thank you One Piece. Thank you Eiirchiro Oda and staff for creating such an exceptional series.
