It’s been a long time since I responded to ‘current events’ in the anime blogosphere. What’s ‘in’ now is the 50 questions post. So to bring back some more life to this blog I’m posting my own answers to the 50 questions. I’ve slightly changed some of the questions though.
1. Who is your favorite male anime character?
It’s gotta be Son Goku (Dragon Ball/Z). Here are the rest:
Lelouch Lamperouge (Code Geass)
Roy Focker (SDF Macross)
Watanuki Kimihiro (xxxHolic)

Kaede Rukawa (Slam Dunk)
Reinhard von Lohengramm (Legend of Galactic Heroes)
Sigfried Kircheis (Legend of Galactic Heroes)

Shimako Todou (Maria-same ga Miteru)
Maya Natsume (Tenjou Tenge)
Layla Hamilton (Kaleido Star)
is are your favorite anime soundtracks?
I listen to a lot of soundtracks, so this is a little difficult. What I listen to usually depends on my mood. But I like a lot of instrumentals. I’ll just list them below:
Simoun OST (1 & 2)
Honey & Clover OST
Hack-SIGN OST (1 & 2)
Orchestra de Nodame Live!
The ones with vocals:
Macross Frontier OST
GITS SAC 2nd Gig OST
Eureka Seven OST
is are your favorite anime openings+ animation?
Inner Universe could have been enough but Sakura is a close second.
Inner Universe (Ghost in the Shell Stand Alone Complex)
Sakura (Eureka Seven)
is are your favorite anime ending songs + animation?
I had a hard time choosing here, and I almost settled on the Marimite EDs. Fortunately I remembered Northern Cross.
Northern Cross (Macross Frontier)
After Northern Cross, I remembered Honey & Clover, where ALL the EDs were awesome. But I think I like Split the best.
6. What is your favorite anime scene?
In Macross: Do You Remember Love, Minmay gets slapped by Hikaru. Hehehe.

Hagu from Honey & Clover. I’ll make her draw something for me hahaha.

Of course, it’s gotta be my favorite female character, Misa Hayase.

Bouncing breasts in every episode (or every minute/second? hahaha), panty shots, useless male leads, moe, etc.
11. Who are your favorite anime couple?
Misa Hayase and Hikaru Ichijio from SDF Macross. For girl x girl it’s Shizuru and Natsuki from Mai Hime. On the other end of the extremes its Reinhard and Kircheis from Legend of Galactic Heroes. Okay so the latter couple is just the product my fantasy hahaha.
12. Who is your favorite anime animal?
Nyanko-sensei from Natsume Yuujincho. Aria-shacho from Aria.
