Meme: Anime

I'm not even gonna follow the rules of the meme...

1. Oofuri (Ookiku Furikabutte / Big Windup!)

2. Digimon (Digimon Adventure 01-02)

3. One Piece

4. GSNK (Gekkan Shoujo Nozaki-kun)

5. Hikago (Hikaru no Go)


1. Who is your favorite character in 2?

Ken Ichijouji. Granted, I originally watched this in high school so my favorite character may have changed since, but I also get the feeling that I won't be able to stomach a rewatch of the series. I'd rather keep the nostalgic feels than facepalm over the shortcomings.

(1. Hanai. 3. Zoro or Law. 4. Mikorin or Hori. 5. Hikaru.)

2. Who is your least favorite character in 1?

Roka, closely followed by Haruna. They don't make a lot of unlikable characters in the series, though; it's not that kind of anime.

(2. Miyako/Yolei. 3. Blackbeard. 4. Maeno. 5. Ko Yong-ha)

3. What’s your favorite episode of 4?

The one where the guys had a sleep-over. It was hilarious.

(1. The curry episode. 2. I don't really remember...but I liked Digimon the Movie {the American one}. 3. The Straw Hat separation by Kuma {maybe a bit masochistic of me; it was a punch in the gut to watch} or the one at the end of the Thriller Bark arc where Brook plays on the piano while remembering the death of his crew. 5. Either the one where Hikaru promises to tell Akira about Sai, or the one where Hikaru tries to find Sai --er, was that multiple episodes?)

4. What is your favorite season of 5?

I don't know if I can count it in seasons, but I definitely enjoyed the insei portion of the series.

(1. The game with Tousei. 2. I don't remember, but probably the first part of Adventures 02. 3. Sabaody Archipelago. 4. There's only one season so far? And in the book, it's kinda hard to differentiate since everything seems to go at the same pace with the same themes...ish. Er, I guess I particularly enjoyed when they all went on a trip to the beach/hot springs.)

5. What’s your favorite relationship in 3?

Zoro/Sanji as a ship, Zoro/Chopper as crewmates.

(1. It's a tie between Hanai/Tajima and Abe/Mihashi as a ship. I enjoy everyone's friendship with Mihashi otherwise, especially between him and Tajima. 2. Daisuke/Ken as a ship or as buddies. 4. Mikorin/Mayu as a ship, but I enjoy everyone's interactions with each other otherwise. 5. Hikaru/Akira and Saeki/Ashiwara as ships, Sai and Hikaru as mentor and mentee.)

6. What’s your anti-relationship in 2?

Ken/Miyako (never liked her) and Yamato/Sora (WTF).

(1. Tajima/Mihashi {they're bros}, Hanai/Mihashi {weird}, Izumi/Mitani {I ship Hamada/Izumi}, Suyama/Sakaeguchi {no}. 3. Zoro/Luffy or Sanji/Luffy {weird}, Zoro/Robin {I ship Franky/Robin}, Zoro/Nami {they have contrasts, but I don't see the compatibility.} 4. Mikorin/Sakura {WHY}, Mikorin/Kashima {I can see why people might like this, but it just wouldn't work}. 5. Sai/Hikaru {ew}, Ogata/Sai or Kouyo/Sai {NO}, Ogata/Akira {gross}.)

7. How long have you been watching 1?

Maybe five years? It couldn't be longer than that.

(2. I first watched it fourteen years ago. 3. Ten to twelve years ago, maybe? 4. Last year. 5. Fourteen to twelve years ago.)

8. How did you become interested in 3?

My brother was a fan since we were kids, and I watched it on and off. I don't think I really got into it until Naruto started slowing down for me.

(1. My friend recommended it --I also saw some awesome fanart. 2. It was on TV. 4. I saw some funny gifs on Tumblr and when browsing for manga, I decided to check it out. 5. My uncle brought me back some DVDs from Thailand. Best thing that happened to me.)

9. Who is your favorite actor in 2?

I'm not really invested in voice actors...but I do keep noticing that the American voice actor for Izzy/Izumi keeps popping up everywhere. I don't remember how everyone sounds, except Izumi and Tai and Mimi (American dub).

(1. I love all the Japanese VAs. *facepalm* They really suit the characters --I like Abe and Mihashi's best. 3. Luffy's Japanese VA was also Koenma and some. Usopp's Japanese VA was Ryuichi in Gravitation {O_o}. I like Zoro's VA --he doesn't actually sound a thing like Zoro IRL; I should've seen it coming, but I guess I never thought much about it. 4. The voices didn't really stand out to me. 5. No impression, but the anime made it work.)

10. Which show do you prefer, 1, 2, or 5?

I prefer Oofuri. The order goes: Oofuri, Hikago, One Piece, GSNK, Digimon.

11. Which show have you seen more episodes of? 1 or 3?

I watch them all pretty consistently; if I'm not caught up, I'm only a few episodes behind. One Piece has the most episodes, then Hikago or Digimon, Oofuri, and GSNK.

12. If you could be anyone from 4 who would you be?

I'm not really the type of person who wants to "be" someone else. But in terms of abilities/encounters? Hori is great with manual labor, seems responsible, and is a good actor, so he's definitely got some talents. Er, or I could be Mayu: lazy, but awesome at everything I put my mind to.

(1. Abe --not exactly sociable, but confident and shrewd, and enough of a grump that people know when to let me be. 2. Ken --I wouldn't actually start killing off Digimon if I was him, though I'd definitely rule them. Smart and athletic; seems pretty nice. 3. Good grief... I like Law's ability, but it doesn't seem worth it to attempt to acquire it. I also like Crocodile's ability. 5. Sai --I'd be obsessed with good stories instead of go, so Hikaru would have to run around trying to find good stories, or research and write them. I just like the benefits of being a ghost.)

13. How would you kill off your favorite character in 1?

Let's not.

14. Would a ¾ crossover work?

Two entirely different worlds, nope. The ones that would work would be any combination of 1-4, 1-5, 2-3, 4-5...ish.

15. Pair two characters in 5 that would make an unlikely, but strangely okay couple:

Er, crack-ships? I would be immensely amused if Kaga started going out with Mitani's sister, only to find Mitani more fun to pick on than going out on a date. Also Kaga and Nase... would that be weird? (Why am I shipping Kaga with everyone??) Yashiro and Ko Yong-ha.

(1. I already have set ships which I stick to, and I don't experiment with them much. I ship Mitani and Chiyo, but Daichi and Chiyo would be immensely cute. 2. Again with set ships... I'm not even gonna try. 3. Zoro and Vivi...? I would be okay with them as good friends, but maybe not as a couple. Cavendish and Zoro. *facepalm* They only have swords in common, but they're likely to bicker as much as Zoro and Sanji would together. 4. No, I don't even...)

16. Over all, which show has a better cast, 3 or 5?

In terms of VAs, One Piece has a stronger impression, but they both do well. In terms of characters, I'm more attached to Hikago.

(Of the five, I like Oofuri's VAs best. I also like their characters best, but Hikago comes in at a close second.)

17. Which show has a better soundtrack, 1, 4 or 5?

Hikago has some really great songs, but I like Oofuri's too... *facepalm* In terms of vocals (like openings and endings), it's Hikago; in terms of background music, it's Oofuri.

(One Piece has the best opening and endings though. I haven't even heard the Japanese Digimon soundtrack, and the English is way too kiddy to take seriously.)
