#7 Who is your anime crush?
If you’ve been following my blog for a while (or even for a few weeks) you’ll know that I have a finely honed taste in anime bishies, a taste that has been refined and cultivated over the span of a decade like a sommelier’s taste buds. The kind of men who float my boat all fall into a few select categories, chiefly: cocky, confident, capable, flamboyant, and ever so slightly effeminate. Howl, of the Howl’s Moving Castle fame, fits snugly into all of these categories and, so, has been a favourite of mine for quite some time now (2009, to be exact). Below are some more of the many reasons why he takes my fancy.
Hello, readers! It’s been a few months now since I started writing again and, boy, has it been a busy few months!
Oh, man. This is a difficult one for a couple of reasons… The first reason being that there are actually a lot of anime that I want to watch, but haven’t yet. The second being that among these anime there aren’t any that I feel a burning need to watch over any of the others. So can I cheat a bit and list them? Please?
I recently finished a show called Strike Witches. Strike Witches is set in an alternate 1944 and follows a military unit made up of a group of girls who fight off alien invaders using advanced military technology called Strikers (which are basically jet-powered thigh highs) and their magical powers all while wearing no bottoms. While there are many things about this premise that are ridiculous, the girls going about their lives in little more than their underwear aspect is by far the cream of the crop. However, the fanservice in Strike Witches is not just ridiculous, but also extremely problematic. You may want to grab a cuppa, as this is going to turn into quite the rant!
#5 What is an anime you’re ashamed you enjoyed?
Given that I’ve watched hundreds of shows at this point, there are actually quite a few that I’m ashamed to have enjoyed! Hm, maybe I’ll write a separate post about them at some point? Anyway, shows that I’m ashamed to have enjoyed are usually ones that I know, objectively speaking, aren’t really anything special, but I, usually for quite dumb reasons, like fancying a certain bish, enjoyed them anyway. Shugo Chara is definitely one of those shows.
