I made edits to my Kaneki cosplay from June 2018. Click HERE to see the cosplay photos from 2018.
Rize Kamishiro from Tokyo Ghoul & Jin Guangyao from Mo Dao Zu Shi
These side characters are essential to the plot! Sure, they’ve made the protagonists of their respective shows suffer… but what would the series be without them?
I only drew Rize and Mengyao/Jin Guangyao for this challenge. Then I got preoccupied with other things so… I filled this with some of my older (but still kind of recent) fan art.
Some people think that I like wholesome shows or shows from the shojo genre. My university’s anime club held a shojo trivia game and I wasn’t very helpful… Sure, I’ve watched shows from every genre but I didn’t know the majority of the answers.
So then… what kind of shows do I like? Well… I wouldn’t exactly classify them as ‘wholesome.’
From top to bottom: Parasyte, Death Note, Attack on Titan, Kaiji, and Zankyou no Terror. I also like Attack on Titan and Inuyashiki.
So what does this all mean? What do my anime preferences say about me as a person?
Absolutely nothing at all, except that I like interesting anime. Hahaha.

1. Uta from Tokyo Ghoul
Okay, for context Uta is a ghoul and ghouls eat humans. I like anime characters with piercings and I have a few ear piercings myself (7 in total).
2. Xue Yang from Mo Dao Zu Shi
I would classify Xue Yang as a yandere. My favourite character archetype is yandere.
***Yanderes are really problematic and I don’t agree with what they do. People that have yandere-like characteristics in real life are extremely toxic and I recognize that. However, my favourite characters in fictional stories are mostly villains and I think that yanderes make stories more interesting if it is done well.***
3. Juuzou Suzuya from Tokyo Ghoul
Juuzou is my favourite character in Tokyo Ghoul. He has a unique appearance and did his stitches himself. I like unique-looking characters because they seem more authentic(?) – Characters that aren’t afraid of being themselves.
4. Izaya Orihara from Durarara!!
Izaya is my number one favourite anime character. I wrote a post outlining the reasons why I like him lolol (Click here to read it).
5. Doppo from Hypnosis Mic
Doppo is a salaryman and pessimist. I like his hair.
Besides Uta (I feel neutral about him), I really like the remaining four characters. It’s not just appearance but their personalities as well. Or I find them really interesting characters. Appearance and personality generally go hand-in-hand for me.
I’m going to open this up for anyone who wants to do this tag. 🙂
I’ll be sharing my favourite anime that were aired each year from the years 2010-2019. Since I watch completed anime as well, I’ll be going with the aired date and not the year I watched the anime. Fun fact: I’ve been watching anime for about 13 years.
2010 – Durarara!!
My favourite anime character of all time is from this anime (Izaya Orihara) and I think this anime is really unique. The music is beautifully done and you just fall in love with Ikebukuro. All of the opening and ending songs are amazing.
2011 – Gyakkyou Burai Kaiji: Hakairoku-hen (Kaiji Season 2)
Kaiji is my second favourite anime (my first favourite is One Piece). This season ended in such a fantastic way. The opening song is great. I felt really nervous during some moments of the anime but that’s part of the fun. I really wish for a season 3.
Runner-up: Sekaiichi Hatsukoi
Sekaiichi Hatsukoi was my first BL anime and continues to be one of my favourite BL anime. This is the anime that started my fujo journey lolol.
2012 – Saint☆Oniisan
This is only two episodes but I thought this anime was really funny. I recommend watching the movie as well. It’s about Jesus Christ and Gautama Buddha living together in an apartment in Tokyo.
2013 – Shingeki no Kyojin (Attack on Titan)
My favourite season of Attack on Titan is actually Season 3 Part 2 but Season 1 is great. It got me interested in watching all the episodes of Attack on Titan thus far and I will watch the next season when it is out.
2014 – Zankyou no Terror
I really love the music in this anime. This is one of my favourite anime.
Runner-up: Kiseijuu: Sei no Kakuritsu (Parasyte)
2015 – Tokyo Ghoul √A (Tokyo Ghoul Season 2)
I’m a big fan of Tokyo Ghoul because I love the themes of what it means to be a ghoul and what it means to be a human. I also love the music. Juuzou Suzuya is my favourite character – I liked this season because Juuzou and Shinohara had precious moments together.
2016 – Boku dake ga Inai Machi (Erased)
The ending was rushed so I did not like that, but everything else was done well. The Japanese live-action on Netflix is an amazing adaptation so I recommend the live-action as well. They did something different with the ending.
Runner-up: Mob Psycho 100
I did like the second season of Mob Psycho 100 more, but I really enjoyed watching this one.
2017 – Inuyashiki
The opening song by Man With a Mission got me into the band and then I attended their concert in 2019 – it was awesome. I really like the concept of two people having the same powers and abilities but using them for completely different reasons: one who cures people of diseases while the other goes on a murder spree.
Runner-ups: Made in Abyss
I couldn’t narrow it down to just one runner-up… I definitely recommend Made in Abyss. The animation, cute character design (but don’t be fooled, it is a twisted anime), and music – everything is great.
Net-juu no Susume (Recovery of an MMO Junkie)
This anime is adorable and it’s one of my favourite romance anime.
2018 – Koi wa Ameagari no You ni (After the Rain)
One of the most visually appealing anime I have seen. It makes me feel so calm because of the cool tones and beautiful backgrounds. I fell in love with hydrangeas after watching this anime. The music is beautiful and I like the themes of books and loss (Masami Kondou gave up on writing a book and enjoys reading books; Akira Tachibana got into an accident and lost the ability to run). I reviewed this anime.
Runner-up: Chuukan Kanriroku Tonegawa (Middle Manager Tonegawa)
This is a spin-off series of Kaiji and it’s hilarious. You see a different side of Tonegawa and Ootsuki.
It is really difficult to decide my favourite anime of 2019. I liked Babylon, My Roommate is a Cat, Given, Demon Slayer, Mob Psycho 100, Attack on Titan Season 3 Part 2, Shield Hero, The Promised Neverland, and more… How am I supposed to narrow it down to one anime!?
I’ll take out Babylon since it has not finished airing but… I still can’t decide!!!
Can all of them be my favourites of 2019..?
I was encouraged to draw again so I drew a ghoul eye from Tokyo Ghoul.
“Some cry with tears; others with thoughts.” – Octavio Paz
Juuzou Suzuya from Tokyo Ghoul:re. He has black hair.
Kuroko Tetsuya from Kuroko no Basuke. School uniform cosplay.
A Facebook friend asked me to draw Shuu from Tokyo Ghoul for her. ^^
Special thanks to Zel for motivating me to draw! A lot of the times I just watch anime and feel too lazy to do anything…
I cosplayed as Kaneki with the mask and white hair in December of last year (you can see those photos here). I cosplayed as him again and I like these new photos more. Kaneki Ken is from the anime, Tokyo Ghoul.
His black hair turned white after experiencing tremendous stress. I wrote about that in my Tokyo Ghoul Final Episode review/impressions post.
Kaneki Ken from Tokyo Ghoul
I’m planning on cosplaying as Kaneki with white hair again. I’m also planning on cosplaying as Hotaru Shidare from Dagashi Kashi.
