Sunshine Blogger Award

I want to thank ignite18 of Marvelously Mismatched for nominating me for the Sunshine Blogger Award. I must be really popular if I keep getting awards. To bad I can never find time to do all these in one day. Anyway, you know the drill.

Rules

– Thank the person who nominated you in a blog post and link back to their blog.
– Answer the 11 questions sent by the person who nominated you.
– Nominate 11 new blogs to receive the award and write then 11 new questions.
– List the rules and display the Sunshine Blogger Award logo in your post and/or on your blog.

Questions

1. How do you motivate yourself to keep the blog up and running?

I try to set goals for myself. One of these goals is to think about my readers and keep them entertained. If not for my readers, I like to open up my thoughts here in my site.

2. If you could live in a book, TV show or movie, what would it be?’

I would pick TV show for my choice. I would choose Samurai Jack because it would be awesome to work together with Jack and I would like to help him get back to his home.

3. What was your dream job growing up?

This is a tricky one because my dream job growing kept changing. First, I wanted to be a computer programmer and then after going through a lot in college, I want to be either a reviewer or journalist.

4. What’s one thing you think an anime should never do?

I guess it would be not going ahead of the manga in certain titles. For example, I heard Fullmetal Alchemist followed the manga for a bit but then it left and made its own story. Another example would be Rurouni Kenshin, we never got the Jinchu Arc and we ended up having tons of filler.

5. If you could time travel would you go to the future or the past?

I would go back to the past. I would want to avoid making mistakes of my life.

6. What fad do you wish would come back? Which do you feel should stay gone forever?

If I could bring back a fad, I would bring back Gangnam Style. The one fad I feel like should go is dubstep. It was okay for a while but I never like the music and I don’t understand how can people enjoy it.

7. If you could bring any fictional character to life, who would it be and why?

I would pick Noctis Lucis Caelum from Final Fantasy XV. It would be cool to play video games and be lazy all day. We could hide from our responsibilities and do nothing all day.

8. Would you rather explore a new planet or the deepest part of the ocean? Why?

I would pick the deepest part of the ocean; I seen the movie Interstellar and I don’t want to spend light years away from home!

9. How would you survive a zombie apocalypse?

If an apocalypse occurred, I would grab my sword I keep away and stock up on junk food. If that fails, I going to Sam’s Club and making it my home.

10. Favourite chip flavour?

I like Hot Cheetos with the lemon flavors. I like eating hot and sour chips.

11. If you could have the answer to any question what would your question be?

I guess my question would be this: If a tree falls down in the forest and no one is there, does it make a sound?

Scott’s questions:

1) How do you watch your anime (computer/cell phone app/PS4/what?)

I watch anime on my laptop computer. Sometimes I watch anime on my Samsung phone from the Crunchyroll and Adult Swim app.

2) If you were a magical person, describe your transformation sequence

Magical Person? This may be crazy but I would want something flashy and explosive. Something like from the video game Viewtiful Joe’s transformation. Henshin-A-Go-Go-Baby!

3) What do you watch or read that isn’t anime?

If it’s not anime. I usually watch cartoons like SpongeBob or even classic  90’s Nick cartoons in the Splat like CatDog, Rugrats and Hey Arnold! I also watch Full House. I also read my Bible every morning.

4) If you read manga, do you read it digitally or in book form?

I actually read both. I like using both. I like print because I like the feel of a book and digital books are faster and cheaper than print.

5) What time of day is prime time anime watching time for you?

I usually watch anime at night, about 9 PM. This is also the same time I watch Toonami on Saturday nights.

6) Microsoft or Macintosh (Apple) ?

Microsoft

7) Thoughts on Yuri on Ice?

Based on the fandom, Yuri on Ice is an anime filled with fanservice for anime girls and it’s praised for the art, content, and characters. I never watched the anime but I hear it’s worth checking out.

8) If you could play a musical instrument, what would you play and why?

I would most likely play the bongos. I have habit on tapping stuff and I think bongos would fit me. I find it really hard to play guitar or piano.

9) If you had to jump into a seat of a giant robot, what would it be?

If it was possible, I would like to hang and ride with Optimus Prime from Transformers.

The Sunshine Blogger Award

image2-sunshine

Sorry for the delay. I want to thank Tessa for this Sunshine Blogger Award. I appreciate this award and once again, I want to apologize for not doing this sooner.

Rules

– Thank the person who nominated you in a blog post and link back to their blog.
– Answer the 11 questions sent by the person who nominated you.
– Nominate 11 new blogs to receive the award and write then 11 new questions.
– List the rules and display the Sunshine Blogger Award logo in your post and/or on your blog.

The Questions

  1. What got you interested in blogging?

I mentioned this before but I don’t mind saying it again. I didn’t plan to blog, I was forced to get this account for a college class. We had to use this to get graded for work. After I pass the class, I never came back to this blog. However, once I was reaching the end of 2015, I decided to use this again to share my passion of anime and manga and other nerdiness.

  • What do you wish people knew about you without you having to tell people?

I wanted people to know about me without telling them, I would like to say that even though I always appear optimistic and caring online, sometimes I wish I can say that I am either stressed out or just need someone to pat me on the back. Sometimes I wish I had someone out there comforting me whenever I get down in the dumps.

  • What first got you interested in anime and or manga?

In anime, I got interested from watching cartoons as kid. When I was little, I would watch cartoons like Looney Tunes and Disney. When I saw Pokemon from Kids WB, I got hooked. Later in my elementary school, I got into to serious anime like Dragon Ball and Dragon Ball Z.

In manga, I got into that because my sister bought me some Yu-Gi-Oh! manga. She knew I like the anime but when she got a giftcard from an old bookstore called Walden Bookstore, she wanted to buy me something. At first I was hesitant but after I read the first volume, I wanted more volumes.

  • Are you an early bird or a night owl?

I am partially both these birds. I like to stay up late on weekends but not much on week days. I don’t mind waking up early in the morning if I know I have to do work or chores. Also, I enjoy getting things done.

  • Do you plan or wing your blog posts?

I usually do both but it depends. If I want to do a review or write the news, I just do it. On my Friday posts, I usually have things planned out and scheduled on a specific time. Sometimes on these Friday posts, I plan a special themed posts.

  • If you could save three things from a fire in your home, what would they be? Ps size, weight and quantity don’t matter.

If I could save three things from a fire, I would grab 3 things:

  1. I would save my photo album collecting some precious memories
  2. My teddy bear from my childhood
  3. My Bible
  • Do you have any anime merch? (this includes manga) If yes, what was the very first thing you bought?

I actually do have merchandise. If I remember correctly, I bought an umbrella based on the Ichigo’s sword from the anime Bleach. You can see the pictures here at my post. This was one of the coolest thing to buy, but my family thought it was weird to see me buy an umbrella lol.

  • How open are you in the real world about your feelings towards anime?

I can be hesitant when I bring up my feelings to anime but I usually whenever I a confident, I say it with assurance. I just admit that I enjoy anime. It’s better than hiding my interests and keeping it locked up. I enjoy anime and I want to people to know about it.

  • Have you ever cosplayed or wanted to? If yes, what character and why that character?

I always dreamed of cosplaying a character. If I wanted to cosplay as an anime character, I would like to cosplay as Ken Kaneki from Tokyo Ghoul.

kaneki_ready_to_fight

  • If you knew money was not an issue, what is the one thing that you would do for yourself?

If money wasn’t wasn’t the problem, I would like to build a a room dedicated to my anime and manga stuff. I want to build a library collecting my manga and build shelves for any anime figurines.

  • What is your favourite post that you have written on your blog and what is the most popular post on your blog?

My favorite post I ever written was my reflection post about my life in college and where does the future hold for me. The post is called “Graduation – My School Life and The Future Story time“. I think in my blog, the only post I see that gets the most popular view is my post about the clothes for the One Piece movie “One Piece Film: Gold”. The post is here, “One Piece Gold updated costumes“. (probably because there are people who like to look at Nami and Robin).
