The 30-day anime meme.. all in one day! =^o^=/  
Motivation motivation motivation.... but first, a meme!! Actually, I spent the day scanning things for M, so it was a day well-spent. =^^= I feel accomplished! Now to spend the rest of the night working on my own projects! (In this case, I think 1 hr to Denkiki and 1 to manga, and the tiny bit of the rest to reading..)

So... The Anime meme!

Day 1 - Very first Anime:

Sailor Moon, the dubbed version on the USA Network (before Cartoon Network got the rights =^-^=) I used to call it my "gateway anime".. because you know it just leads to insane addiction =^^=

Strangely enough, I've never seen the series in it's entirety. Just through R and bits and pieces later on. I've only read the first 2 volumes of the manga too. I will remedy that!! Starting tomorrow! A minimum of ten episodes a week until I'm done, and manga on the train! ^^ Yay, goal! (Will reward myself with a new cheap necklace when I finish, I think.. or something else. Any suggestions?)

Day 2 - Favorite Anime you’ve watched so far:

I can't pick!!! Possibly Hunter x Hunter,

possibly Utena.. So many have captured my heart over the years, but those two really stood out to me..

Day 3 - Your Anime crush:

I can't remember the last time I had one of these!! Oh wait.. The last time was probably Sakuma Ryuichi from Gravitation... ^^;

Day 4 - Anime you’re ashamed you enjoyed:

Some people are ashamed that I enjoyed Kodomo no Jikan. A lot! Because it is a really, really sweet, touching story! I'm not ashamed that I enjoyed it at all, but this is as close as I can come..

Day 5 - Anime character you feel you are most like (or wish you were):

(wish you were version) Wouldn't it be nice to be Saotome Ranma?

I mean.... come on! Tons of hot girls falling over themselves to marry you? Not a bad deal if I do say so myself! He is a very lucky guy/girl! =^o^= (And I do!) (Wow, nostalgic...)

Day 6 - Most annoying Anime character:

I don't usually find anime characters annoying, unless they are the overly emo kind, or the guys-who-are-a*holes kind. Recently I have really, REALLY grown to hate Yuushin from Hiyokoi. Because in this month's installation of the manga, he did something that I just can't forgive. Something that I hate more than anything. I don't think that he should be with Hiyorin anymore.. in fact, I don't think that I can even stand to read the manga anymore. I feel THAT strongly. x.x

Day 7 - Favorite Anime couple:

How can I pick??

I loved Utena and Anthy

Miki and Yuu

Ryuichi and Shuichi (only ever happened in the manga sequel, not the anime sadly)

and lots and lots that are not canon. It's not my fault that I usually like made-up couples! *^^*

Day 8 - Most epic scene ever:

The last scene in the Fushigi Yuugi tv series. I have never cried so much at an anime. EVER!! But They were tears of happiness =^^= (Not the part the screencap is from.. I mean the very end, after the credits..... omg BAWLING!! So sweet.. So soooo sweeyt!!)

Day 9 - Saddest Anime scene:

In a good way, the scene above.

But off the top of my head, one of the saddest scenes was in Fullmoon wo Sagashite when (spoiler- highlight to read) Mitsuki found out about Eiji's death.. OMG I BAWLED.

Day 10 - Favorite slice of life Anime:

Marmalade Boy =^-^=

Day 11 - Favorite mech series:

I watched most of Vifam recently, and am working on finishing it *^^*

Day 12 - An ecchi picture from your favorite series:

(one of) my favorite series is full of ecchi, thankfully! That isn't why I like it, but..


Day 13 - Cosplay of your ‘waifu’ or Husbando’:

I've never been married, even digitally. XD

Day 14 - current (or most recent) anime wallpaper:

Omg... nostalgiiiiiaaaaaaaaa!! I haven't had an anime wallpaper in ages, but I used to have them all of the time!

Day 15 - Post a cute Neko-girl:

Hyper Police.. another blast from the past!

Day 16 - post a kigurumi cosplay of your favorite anime character:

Sorry, I don't even have a favorite.... nor do I know where to find one of those pictures!

Day 17 - Favorite tsundere:

Nana ^^

Day 18 - Something moe:

Macross Frontier ^^

Day 19 - Mandatory swimsuit post:

Day 20 - Favorite shoujo anime:

I can't decide! If it was manga, I would say Nana, by a landslide.

But the anime wasn't so outstanding. I guess Sailor Moon..?

Day 21 - Best yandere character:

Hachi XD

Day 22 - Favorite boy’s love couple (or yuri couple, if you don’t like that sort of thing):

Yaoi - Shuichi and Ryuichi

or Xelloss and Zelgadis (as I said, non-canon depending on who you talk to..)

Yuri - Recently I think Miho and Kaya-chan are the best!

Or Kaya-chan and Aoki-san..

Day 23 - Anime you think had the best, or most intrigueing art:

Utena, as far as intriguing art goes :3

Day 24 - Favorite anime hero or heroine:

Oh god, this is hard!! If you asked me these days, I would say Kaya-chan (from Bakuman).. because I cry almost every time anything happens that acknowledges her. And I want to support her! I feel like I relate to her in a lot of ways.. OMG the bouquet... that was the best thing to EVER happen in that manga! That and her wedding ♥

Day 25 - Best anime villian:

Light(aka Kira)... how could this not be Light? =^_________^= Best villian ever. I think what I loved so much about him was that in the beginning I could sympathize with his motivations. But then before you realized it, he had crossed the line and you were like... waitaminuteyou'rescaringme!

Day 26 - Your favorite harem anime:

I thought Lova Hina was fairly decent. ^^

I don't think I'd watch it a second time but it was good the first time! Or possibly Fruits Basket or Fushigi Yuugi. I don't generally go for Harem animes though.

Day 27 - Favorite anime opening theme song:

Can't it just be "an anime opening that I like"? I could no sooner pick my favorite than tell you my favorite friend! There are too many good ones to choose from! ^^;

So here is one that I like, an oldie but goodie! It was the first time I'd ever heard something almost rock-like as an opening theme to anything! I couldn't believe it that there was music this awesome attached to a series of anything!! =D =D =D (By the way, it's a long story, but Slayers is the reason I didn't hate anime. Ghost in the Shell is the reason I almost did hate anime)

Day 28 - Favorite pokemon:

I always loved Eevie. =^-^= For some reason, so did a lot of other people. Boring!

Day 29 - Favorite school uniform:

From an anime... Uhhhhh... Probably Utena's girls uniforms.

Day 30 - Anime character you want to cosplay:

If someone made the costume for me, I would SO love to be Sheryl Nome!! =^-^=

xD But .. yayyy.

:D And Wow Sailor Moon was my gateway dru- I mean anime. I remember getting up to watch it at 6 AM every Saturday morning and if I slept in, I'd make a huge fuss.
Kate: [Angelique] Claviskiyohimee on January 12th, 2011 03:59 pm (UTC)
I used to watch Sailor Moon at 5:30a everyday. I also had withdrawals when I missed one.
Kira_Shadowkira_shadow on January 12th, 2011 02:19 pm (UTC)
oooh Sailor Moon!
Good times~!
Lar: Smilelarlar_ulysses on January 12th, 2011 02:28 pm (UTC)
I've had you friended here for a while, but I've not commented before so first I guess I'll just say hey in an attempt to sound less random stalkish XD; Hello ^^

I just wanted to say that I used to be SO into anime, and then my love for video games killed the free time I once had and I drifted away... I still love it, still have a pretty okay collection, but I lack the time to go looking for new things so THIS? YES! XD There were a few you mentioned that I'd heard of, at the very least, so thank you for that!

I think Sailor Moon was a gateway anime for an entire generation. It certainly was for me (and I started laughing when I read that you actually call it that, because I've said the exact same thing!)

I liked Kodoma no Jikan. I read up to the current chapter online, but that was a while ago, and I don't know what I did with the link. =\

Don't most people like pairings that aren't canon? I think that's sort of the appeal. In canon, you see the relationship, but if there's just some subtext, or sexual tension, then it lets the reader (or watcher if it's anime) imagine for themselves what might be going on "behind the scenes."

Thanks for doing this, now I've got several manga/anime to add to my list to read/watch. ^__^
Kate: [Fire Emblem] Micaiahkiyohimee on January 12th, 2011 03:55 pm (UTC)
Sailor Moon and Ronin Warriors were my get way animes. :)
Julie: gigglyragnarok_08 on January 12th, 2011 04:51 pm (UTC)
Sailor Moon and Utena are very great anime, and I love all of your answers ♥
night_owl_9: Allen Walkernight_owl_9 on January 12th, 2011 04:52 pm (UTC)
Oh Sailor Moon! That was my gateway anime too! :DDD Such fond memories *^^*

I'm a fan of non-canon pairings too, but I do have my share of favorite canon pairings as well.

Oooh, cool! Hunter X Hunter is in my top 4 ♥
yura shiraki: happysanajoy on January 12th, 2011 05:38 pm (UTC)
sailor moon was my gateway anime, then dragonball z, then my daughter told me about an anime about cowboy bebop....then i was lost! i could do an anime family tree. ^_^
Christy: Sailor Moon - Seiya/Starfightervelessa on January 12th, 2011 05:53 pm (UTC)
Hehe, I started the exact same way, dubbed Sailor Moon in high school. Gateway anime for sure!
Andrea Blytheblythe025 on January 12th, 2011 06:16 pm (UTC)
Wow! It's suddenly very clear to me how little anime I actually watch. lol.

Sailor Moon is the only one I recognize on this list. I guess I've got some watching to do. (^_^)
Hi-chan (火ちゃん)hinoai on January 13th, 2011 01:05 am (UTC)
LOL, well to tell the truth a lot of the anime I mentioned are either really new or really old. Not much in the middle XD

i loved sailormoon and marmalade boy!!
used to watch sailormoon every morning be4 i went to school. i also didn't watch the whole thing, only got to the part where rini started showing up. but i guess i lost interest by then, anyway. haha...

this was a fun post to read. xD
thanks, jamie-chan! didn't know you liked yuri too. hehe. there's a really sweet movie, LOVE MY LIFE, based on a yuri manga of the same name. i wonder if you've watched it... ~__~
Hi-chan (火ちゃん)hinoai on January 13th, 2011 01:07 am (UTC)
I watched the Love My Life movie (after I read the manga of course ^^). But to be honest, I thought they were both a little boring. ^^;; And the art in the manga was bad to boot. :( Too bad, really, because there are few non-porn lesbian movies out there!
