The Sunshine Blogger Award!


Wow, what an honor! So like we mentioned the other day, we’ve been nominated by In Search of Number Nine for the Sunshine Blogger Award. Never had we thought in the three (going on four) years we’ve been running this anime blog of ours would we be nominated for our efforts, but in reality, we have our fans and fellow anibloggers to thank. Of course there are some rules we have to follow before we go any further, so here they are:

  1. Thank the blogger who nominated you in your post and link it back to them.
  2. Answer the 11 questions the blogger asked you.
  3. Nominate 11 new blogs to receive the award and write 11 new questions for them.
  4. List the rules and display the Sunshine Blogger Award logo on your post of blog.

Now with all that settled, let’s do this!

What was the first time you cried during an anime, and why?

I have yet to find an anime title that would make me shed a tear, not to say that I don’t have emotions. However there is one exception; that “one” scene from Brotherhood…

…I should probably move on to the next question before I start crying. T.T

What is your favorite series that you will never watch again and why?

Negima! I used to be really into it ten years ago, but I’ve kinda outgrown the show a little bit. That’s not to say that I’ll never watch it again, but there’s so many titles and so little time.

What is your favorite series that you know is terrible, but you still love it. Why do you love it?

Girls Bravo. I wouldn’t say it’s totally terrible, but a small part of me still loves it due to the fact that I’m a sucker for slap-stick romantic comedy.

What is your favorite blog post that you haven’t written yet? Why haven’t you?

I don’t know…because I haven’t written it yet! XP

What blogger do you secretly wish you could be more like. What do you admire about them?

Wow, this one a tough one, because there’s a lot of bloggers I admire – most of them follow our blog. I guess I would say Irina from I Drink and Watch Anime because of her no-holds-barred approach to anime and video games in general. We know we like to play in the “grey area” with our posts and approach, but there are some days where we secretly want to be like her. (Much luv, sis!) 😉

Is there an anime where you think one change would fix it? What anime and what change?

Yes there is! Panty & Stocking with Garterbelt. C’mon guys! The whole “Stocking is a Demon” debate drove me nuts after the show ended, I’d throw that out but keep the scene where Panty, Stocking, Brief, Garterbelt, and Chuck return to the church, only to find the black-winged fallen one known as Lucifer and his army of black-winged angels, who have now taken over the church and made it their HQ. He transports them to a parallel world he created and tells them to retrieve the seven scrolls from the seven bosses, or he’ll unleash Armageddon. Lucifer would also has a ghost form – and he’s Panty and Stocking’s older brother.

If you crashed on a desert island, what three people would you want to send you anime? And what anime would it be?

My partner of the blog, A. Goldman, Matt (from Matt’s Blog), and my other friend Josh. As for the anime, Danganronpa 3, Dr. Stone, Danmachi (seasons 1 & 2), Panty & Stocking of course, and Chivalry of a Failed Knight.

Is there a series you wish you could buy on DVD/Blu-Ray? What series would it be?

Yes! Ghost Stories!

What anime creator would you want to talk to, and what series would you like to talk about?

Akira Toriyama, and of course we ALL know what series I wanna talk about! 😉

What anime should I watch that I probably haven’t from the last five years?

The Sacred Blacksmith. Yet another series that didn’t get much fanfare.

What is your favorite fruit?

I don’t really have a favorite fruit in general, but if it’s a strawberry-orange smoothie then I’ll take that.

And now for the 11 questions (you don’t have to worry about rules for them):

  1. What was your very first anime?
  2. When was the first time you’ve gone to an anime convention? What year?
  3. Do you have an anime crush? (Waifu or Husbando)
  4. What anime series do you wish got a second season?
  5. What got you into blogging?
  6. Do you have a favorite anime creator or director that you admire?
  7. What was the first anime you dropped, and why?
  8. Have you ever cosplayed at a convention before?
  9. What’s your favorite anime opening and ending?
  10. What anime titles are you looking forward to next year?
  11. Why do you love anime?

There’s a lot of awesome people I’d nominate, and some of which have nominated us! So here’s my 11 nominees:

We can’t thank you guys enough for all of your love and support! Share this post with any and every blogger you know and love. Until next post, stay nerdy! 😉

  1. “However there is one exception; that “one” scene from Brotherhood…”

    Oh, thanks, now I’m going to be thinking about that all evening! Seriously, good choice. Heck of a scene.

    “Girls Bravo. I wouldn’t say it’s totally terrible, ”

    Of course it wasn’t terrible! The only thing wrong with that series it that it’s not out on Blu Ray.

    “I guess I would say Irina from I Drink and Watch Anime because of her no-holds-barred approach to anime and video games in general. ”

    Hard to beat her combination of authenticity, clarity of thought, and accessibility.

    “The Sacred Blacksmith. Yet another series that didn’t get much fanfare.”

    You can’t hear it, but I’m clapping. Completely agree.

    And thanks for nominating me! You’ve given us some really interesting questions. I’ll try to do them justice!
