Three Anime Characters Twitter Tag Explanation

After seeing Arria and Kat’s Twitter Tag post explanation, I decided to do my own explanation post. In the past, I actually got tagged more than once but I only going to focus on one since it is the only one that has anime characters. I was also tagged by Lynlynsays. You remembered this tagged picture, Describe yourself in 3 fictional characters,  Twitter users had to not only share 3 characters that represents themselves but they had tag 10 people. I won’t be tagging people but I will explain my chosen characters. This is not a top 3 post, these are characters that I randomly picked from my head. Here is my tweet and my explanations:

Shizuo Heiwajime from Durarara!!

Some may know this but I am very stubborn. Whenever I get provoked by something either minor things or something that is constantly bugging me, my expression on my face says “you better back off or you will get hurt”. I may not be able to toss cars or stop signs like Shizuo but I will admit, sometimes my anger does seem hurtful and I end up hurting the people I care. It’s not something to be proud about but just like Shizuo, I have this scary power inside me and if I can’t control it, I end causing damage. On positive note, we are also physically strong and I do help do heavy lifting in chores and we both have a young brother that we care about.

Shiro Fujimoto from Blue Exorcist

I come from a Christian family and we believe that in God and His Son, Jesus Christ. Just like Shiro, I try to follow God’s words and do what He tells me to do, which is to believe in Him and know of Jesus sacrifice for us and know that Satan will never win. I am not afraid to say I love God and I am not afraid to say that there is one way to get to Heaven, which is believing in Jesus. As long I have God, Satan is nothing to be scared about.

I will admit, I do sin and mess up. Whenever I see a cute anime girl in my shows, I get smitten and get a crush on one and stuck on her for a while until another comes around. Thank God it’s not an obsession but I always pretend I have a harem if anime girls based on the shows I see.

“Tobi” from Naruto Shippuden

I won’t spoil the true identity of this guy but I will just call him Tobi. First started off as a goof ball in the series, Tobi is a funny guy who tends to mess up and annoy people and serves a comedy relief in the villain organization the Akatsuki. Later on, his silliness is nothing more than a ruse and he is actually a dark and manipulative man with a goal for peace. He becomes one of the lasting members of the Akatsuki and tries to capture all the Tailed Beasts for power.

Just like Tobi, I tend to act funny with my friends and family. I am pretty awkward in groups which makes me a target for me being a joke and I sometimes I let them laugh and I laugh with them. Online, I act random and I say things that I just want to share. This explains why I like to do my TGIF posts because I like to share random memes.

However, whenever I am alone or something serious comes up in my life, I revert to a serious personality. I don’t try to take over the world but I do act serious if something is discussed with the world or topics in life. I don’t really like to talk about politics or any laws or social things like (gay rights or ethnicity issues) because I am afraid I will offend groups. In short, besides being funny and chill, I sometimes can be serious and I know when to stop having fun.

This concludes this explanation post!

Top 5 Strongest Female Humans in Anime

I recently did a top 5 on strongest human men and now I am going to do a top 5 strongest human women!

Just like men in anime, there are some women out there that are so strong that can make men shake in fear. Sometimes, they can be relatable and can exist in the real world. In anime, women can look both cute and scary or beautiful and dangerous. In this list, I will be listing my choices for top 5 strongest girls in anime. Just like my male list, these girls are humans; no aliens, monsters, demons or androids, ONLY humans! This list is not ranked either and no spoilers here either.

Happy Birthday to me! – A Special Top 10 posts and Personal Shout-Outs!

Hello everyone, this is yours truly Matthew of Matt-in-the-Hat, and today is a special day because today it’s my birthday! Today I turn 23 and I have been waiting for a long time to reach this number. As a way to start this post, I will be doing a special top 10 posts but with a twist. If you guys know me enough, you would know that I have a gaming obsession with Final Fantasy XV and Kingdom Hearts. For this top 10, this will actually be divided into top 5s instead but in the end, it will be 10. Also, there is no particular order. Here is the reason behind this. Also, I will be doing personal shout-outs!

In this episode, players will be playing as Noctis’s friend Gladiolus and they will experience what is like to play as the strongest man of the group. Taking place after facing Ravus, Gladiolus leaves the party and tries to obtain new skills. With the help of Cor, Gladio will be fighting daemons and he will have to face the ultimate challenger, Gilgamesh. If players bought the season pass, this episode is free; otherwise, you will have to pay $5.

Also coming out today is the release of of the HD collection game Kingdom Hearts HD 1.5 + 2.5 ReMIX, (in the UK, this game comes out on March 31st).

Durarara!! author creates One Piece Ace Novel

Mentioned early this year, according to the One Piece magazine, to celebrate the 20th anniversary of One Piece, it has been announced that Durarara!! and Baccano! novelist Ryohgo Narita will be writing a novel focusing Monkey D. Luffy’s big brother, Portgas D. Ace. Based on the description, the novel will tell the story about Ace’s early life as a pirate from leaving Mt. Corvo to meeting the WhiteBeard pirates.

I would go on and tell you why Ace is an important character but I don’t want to spoil the story. I will say that this novel will reveal Ace’s character just like the anime and show his life as a Spade Pirate.

Ryohgo Narita is also doing a Bleach side story of Shuhei Hisagi for the spring and he previously did a past Bleach novel called Spirits Are Forever With You.

2016: Top 5 Favorite Female Anime Characters

Hello everyone! This is Matthew and in this post, I will share with you my top 5 favorite female anime characters. If you’re wondering why I used this image of Akame for my thumbnail, it’s because I chose her for my 30 Day anime challenge day 4. Back then, I only chose one in the top of my head and this time, I want to expand more on who’s my favorite. I originally was planning to titled this post, “Top 5 Favorite Female Anime Characters Expansion Pack or +.” I also added 2016 in my title because this list may change in the future, so this is not permanent.  This list will not include anime characters I have a crush on; there will be a list for that in the future. Anyway, let’s start this list:

5. Kagome Higurashi (Inuyasha)

kagome-kagome-higurashi-18797059-500-490

I pick Kagome from the anime Inuyasha. You would think a teenager like Kagome would only have to deal with homework, tests and boys; however, this is not the case for this teenage girl. After being dragged into the Bone-Eater’s Well, Kagome’s life changes when she meets the half-demon Inuyasha and must work together to collect the Shikon Jewel Shards and fight off against bloodthirsty that want them for power. What makes Kagome one of my favorite is because she is a tough and brave girl that goes through trials to save her friends. Any average human would probably run away from danger or die, but Kagome is willing to put her life on the line. Kagome is one tough school girl.

4. Rukia Kuchiki (Bleach)

rukia-rukia-kuchiki-27495477-355-500-bleach

My next choice is Rukia from Bleach. Rukia is one of the first Soul Reapers Ichigo meets in the start of Bleach. After lending Ichigo her powers in order to save his family, Rukia becomes trapped in the human world and relies on Ichigo to do her duty as a Soul Reaper. Later on the series, Ichigo tackles more than slaying hollows. He goes through saving his friends, fighting in a war or even getting stronger in near-death situations.

Out of the girls in Bleach, I think Rukia is one of the coolest girls. Unlike most girls in some anime, she is prepared to fight. Thanks to her being raised by Kuchiki family, Rukia is disciplined in fighting and knows the risks for helping Ichigo’s battles. Also, she also knows how to slap Ichigo into sense whenever he gets discouraged especially after his first encounters with the Arrancars, Yammy and Ulquiorra.

3. Asuna Yuuki (Sword Art Online)

ggvsqh_sword-art-online_asuna-yuki

Just like Rukia, Asuna is another character I like. When we first meet Asuna in the anime, we find out she is beginner gamer and she gets trapped in Sword Art Online along with Kirito. Later as the anime progresses, Asuna joins the Knights of the Blood and gets the highest ranking. With her cooking skills and keen techniques of her rapier, Asuna is a special girl that cook up a tasty stew and even tackle the toughest enemies in video games. Besides losing everything in the Fairy Dance arc, Asuna is still the toughest gamer along Kirito in A LFeim Online; she also becomes the teams healer! In the Mother Rosario Arc, Asuna also comes close to defeating the unstoppable gamer Zekken!

A girl that likes gaming is great in my book!

2. Celty Sturluson (Durarara!!)

celty-sturluson-with-bike

Coming in second place is Celty from the Durarara!! series. Celty is a Dullahan (a headless fairy in Scotland culture) that lives with the underground doctor Shinra Kishitani in Ikebukuro and tackles odd jobs. In a city that is filled with bizarre characters, Celty is one of the characters and she is no stranger to her friends. Without her head, no one can understand what she is saying unless she uses her cellphone and anyone that can understand her body language. Besides that, she is also very dangerous. Her headless horse can shape shift into a motorcycle, a carriage and even a bike. She also controls shadow tendrils that can emit from her body, almost like extra limbs. In this anime, Celty is one of my favorite characters in the anime. She is caring to her friends such as Shizuo and Anri and she can also be cute when she is with Shinra.

1. Nagisa Furukawa (Clannad)

furukawa-nagisa-full-18324

Last but not least, we have Nagisa from the Clannad series. Born with a weak constitution, Nagisa is prone to be easily ill and go through critical situations that can lead her to repeating high school. Her life changes when a delinquent senior boy named Tomoya Okazaki meets her and agrees to help her bring back the theatrical drama club, her faith in her goal is restored and she meets new friends that will be part of her life. She also changes Tomoya’s life for the better after she learns about his troubled life.

Personally, Nagisa is one of the best girls in the anime. Nagisa is a cute girl with a gentle smile and good conscience. She is a girl who is willing to help others and put aside her own goals. She’s not a fighter like Tomoyo, or tough like Kyou or even super shy like Kotomi, she’s just a girl who is moderate. She can be shy but with Tomoya’s help, she can be brave and even go through life without troubles. Whenever she smiles, she can make anything go from bad to good. If she’s sad, she can make anyone feel for her. She is the number one in this list.

These are all the characters I have for this top 5. What are your top 5 girls? Comment below.
