Real Neat Blog Award

A few weeks ago I was happy to realize that I’ve been nominated for something called the “Real Neat Blog Award”. It’s the first time I’ve been nominated for any kind of post like this, and once again I would like to thank Crow’s World of Anime for giving me this opportunity 😀

The Rules

If you don’t know what this is about, here are the rules.

  1. Display the logo
  2. Thank the bloggers for the award (already done that, but another thank you won’t hurt :P)
  3. Answer the questions from the one who nominated you
  4. Nominate 7 to 10 bloggers (I might be a tad less expansive too but let’s see)
  5. Ask them 7 questions

The Logo

In accordance with the rules, here’s the official logo: (shameless copy-paste)

The Questions

Which anime writer most inspires you, or which anime writer turns out material you find inspirational?

Well I guess Yuyuko Takemiya because Toradora inspires me in so many ways it would be too much to start writing about now. Also Yoshihiro Togashi is admirable with everything he does with Hunter x Hunter so he would be another candidate.

What aspect of your blog are you most proud of and why?

I’d say I’m proud of how I’m consistently posting every 3 days. It may not be as many posts as for some other anime blogs, but I’ve sticked with this “new post every 3 days” idea since the start of the year. Except ofcourse, February when I took the break because of exams.

Another thing is the variety of my posts? Or at least I’d like to believe that’s the case. I do lists, I break down openings and endings, I do more personal posts along with first impressions and other stuff too. I always aim to make each post unique and fresh, altho it may not look that way during the start of an anime season when there are a few more first impressions posts.

Of the artists who perform or write anime openings or endings, who is your favorite?

It’s never a bad opening or ending song when LiSA is the singer. But I also want to mention Yanagi Nagi, the singer of both the Oregairu openings, the Just Because! opening and the Irozuku Sekai ending. She has such a beautiful distinctive voice.

What anime series would you love to buy, but can’t because it’s not available?

Here I am talking about Toradora once again, but I can’t help myself. It’s available on Steam, and I would totally buy it to support the author, but it’s unavailable in Croatia.

I would also buy the PSP game but I don’t have the device and I sadly still can’t read full Japanese. But at least I can support the author by buying the manga volumes, and I’m slowly but surely collecting those volumes.

Excluding this site, what are three anime sites you follow regularly and why?

Let’s see, that would be 100wordanime, drunkenanimeblog and animatedandy.

Why? Because I love quality content.

That was a terrible way to give someone a shootout and I’m so sorry.

Which of Franchouchou’s performances from Zombieland Saga was your favorite and why?

I did once mention a certain Zombieland Saga performance as an honorable mention for this list. It was the legendary rap battle between Sakura and Saki. Epic is the only way to describe it.

Kotaro is the king of improvisation and I love how Yugiri randomly joins in with that shamisen.

I also really enjoyed this electrifying (sorry) performance from episode 7. Their autotuned voices, the way they were shooting with the fingers, the backstory… It made for such a cool and memorable performance.

Within the last several seasons, what series had your favorite art style and why?

I think that would be Irozuku Sekai no Ashita Kara from Fall 2018 cause P.A. Works just made it look stunning.

Who am I nominating?

I think I’ll make it 4 nominations too. I nominate:

  1. animatedandy
  2. solitarycubblyhole
  3. inasianspaces
  4. umaiyomu

My questions

And now for my very own seven questions.

  1. Who are your favorite voice actors? (subbed or dubbed, it’s fine either way)
  2. How many shows each anime season do you watch on average?
  3. What is the most episodes of anime you’ve watched in a single day?
  4. How many hours of anime do you watch per week?
  5. Do you have any rules that you apply for each blog post you make?
  6. What is your main motivation for blogging?
  7. Have you ever read the source material (manga, light novel, visual novel) of an anime before it has started airing?

Thanks for reading and I hope my answers were somewhat satisfying.

    Thanks for the tag! Always love answering questions like this.

    LiSA is great, I love her performance of Ichiban no Takaramono – Yui version.
    Still have to check out Zombieland Saga sometime.. Irozuku Sekai too whenever I manage to catch up to Fall 2018 anime!

      No problem 😀

      Im not sure if i really like idol anime too much actually, only saw like 3 of them but zombieland saga really did it in a great way, its so unique but surprisingly it works, highly recommended, and also miyano is golden, what he did in zombieland saga is just so praiseworthy.
      Irozuku is also really worth the watch, its an emotional story and the art is stunningly beautiful, pa works keeps impressing me in one way or another

        Only idol anime I’ve seen is Love Live! School Idol Project, which I thought was great. Been planning on watching the sequel, Love Live! Sunshine!! at some point.

          I saw both idolmaster and love live. Prefered idolmaster cause it had some great highs and moments that genuinely made me emotional enough to even cry. I only saw the first season of love life and it never reached that emotional high for me, in fact the way kotori just gave up on her dream so easily kind of annoyed me. But in general im not still too sold on idol shows tbh.

    LiSA is really amazing, isn’t she? I can’t think of an OP/ED she sang that I didn’t like, either!

    Good call on the Zombieland Saga episode 7 performance, too. Still gives me chills!

      unlasting blew me away, like do you know that feeling when you hear a song and it just takes you some time to process how amazing it is? yeah that was me with unlasting

        It’s like the song suspends time and anything’s possible, if only while the song plays. Unlashing was really powerful like that. I think the animation during the ED intensified the feeling.

          Absolutely, the animation gave me this modern and almost revolutionary feel, i just love that ending so much.
