anime survey  
I had something better to write.. Oh yeah, I bought my kanji dictionary and a dictionary of japanese grammar in Shinjuku today. I need both desperately. They are wonderful!! ^^ I will gush more later when it's not past 1:30 am and I have to work in the morning. ^.^;

First Anime: Sailormoon, from tapes that Rachel recorded for us off of USA. ^_^ If you don't consider that, then the first anime I rented and watched was Ghost in the Shell. I almost gave up anime after watching that because I hated it so badly. But LUCKILY I'd rented the first tape of Slayers at the same time, and that redeemed anime for me. ^__^

How did you get introduced into the world of Anime? Again, Sailormoon... though I think my real kicker into the online 'world' of anime was when I made a (really popular) webpage for Ranma 1/2..... called YouKnowYouWatchTooMuchRanma1/2When:.... XD Yes, I remember it well.. XD;;

Favorites Series (top 3... as of now):
1. Prince of Tennis
2. Hunter x Hunter
3. still always Marmalade Boy... you just can't knock it off the top 3, EVER. It's strange that I never draw it, though. o.o Tied with Hana Yori Dango.

Manga:
1. Hunter x Hunter
2. Gravitation
3. Confidential Confessions

Genre (drama, action, etc):
1. Action/Adventure
2. Drama/Romance
3. Comedy

Movie: (I am the only one I know who hasn't picked a Miyazaki movie yet =D;;)
1. Perfect Blue
2. Ranma 1/2 movie 2: Nihao my Concubine

Scene from an anime: (These aren't really in any order)
1. From Prince of Tennis: When Ryoma beat Kevin in the JRSenbatsu tournament and shook his hand. And they SMILED at each other. and looked awed. Then later on said goodbye in the airport.!! ometheirloveissohappeningintheairportbathroomkthx~!!!! Episode 160, at the end of the JRSenbatsu arc. ^^
2. From Prince of Tennis: When Ryoma beat Sanada and said, in lovely accented english, Nobody beats me in tennis." *swoon*!!!! Uhhh.. which episode? At the end of the rikkai arc. XD Whenever that was. Right before the filler before Senbatsu. XD;
3. The scene in Marmalade Boy where Yuu and Miki get together for the second time. The one by the waterfall...!! <333 I forget the episode, but it's in the second half of the series of course.. XD
4. The scene in Hunter x Hunter where Hisoka is trying to entire Kuroro into a fight and he shakes his pelvis at him. XDDDDD It's the last episode of the first OAV series, in other words, the end of the real story and right before Greed Island..

Quote from an anime:

4. "If you move, I'll kill you. If you use nen, I'll kill you. If you speak, I'll kill you. If you understand, then look at me in the mirror carefully.  if you ever appear again in front of me, I will kill you. That's a promise." Killua, Hunter x Hunter, episode 43. Oh man, I love his delivery here............. <3333 OMG, I went back to find that exact quote. I love this SERIES!! <33

Most Psychotic: Hisoka... wait I already said that! But it's true! Wicked and Psychotic, with a capital P!!!

Best dresser: o.o I think all anime characters dress themselves in the dark. With sunglasses on. With their eyes closed. They also shop the same way.

Hi-chan (火ちゃん)hinoai on January 14th, 2005 11:20 pm (UTC)
Yesh! I'd forgotten the name that they listed on the CD, thanks! ^^

It was still the Seeker singing it, just under a different name. Dude, the guy changes names every month it seems. XD;;

I am the only one I know who hasn't picked a Miyazaki movie yet =D;;

I didn't put one either, lol.

Most violent: Jojo's Bizarre Adventures! But who doesn't love seeing heads getting sucked into canteens!!!! <33333

XD I can't believe I forgot that one!! XDDD

I was noticing.. [then again, I've thought about it before] even though we have series like WK, PoT, and Gravi in common... most of our other anime/manga interests are soooo different!
Hi-chan (火ちゃん)hinoai on January 16th, 2005 11:11 am (UTC)
