Anime

Meme Plague

My turn!

• What anime are you watching now?

Kannagi, Toradora, and Hyakko.  May return to Kemeko, Index and Macademi Wasshoi as well, but only if I'm bored - or avoiding work.

• What is your favourite time to watch?

The middle of the night.

• And your favourite place?

Lying on my bed, watching it on my notebook, since I have no convenient place to set up my TV.

• Who is your favourite auteur?

Hayao Miyazaki.

• Your favourite OST?

Devil Hunter Yohko.

• What is the most difficult anime you’ve ever watched?

Reign.  I was in a crowded cinema during an anime film festival, and couldn't leave my seat easily (and didn't want to miss the next item, though I've now forgotten what that was).

Reign is terrible.

• What was the first anime you remember watching?

Kimba.  Would have been around 1971.

• Do you have a comfort show that you re-watch?

No.  I have hundreds of unwatched DVDs, tapes, and laser disks, never mind the fansubs.

I do rewatch OPs and EDs though.

• What is the most erotic anime you’ve watched?

I've watched a few hentai OVAs; most of them were crap, but I liked the first episode of F3.

• Which classic should you have watched?

Akira, maybe.

• Which series did you never want to end?

Bleach.  Started off as a very interesting series, and then turned into just another Shounen Jump property.

• What is your most overrated anime?

Neon Genesis Evangelion.  It was the big thing when I was just getting seriously into anime.  It sucks.

• Which character could you have an affair with?

Urd.

Being on the wrong side of 40 puts a majority of anime characters in the ick category when it comes to even hypothetical relationships, but there's always the hot shounen mom brigade.

• Who is your favourite character?

Three guesses.

Actually, probably Lina Inverse.

• Which character do you most dislike?

Right now?  Kemeko.

• Which character do you identify with most?

Lina Inverse.  Except that she gets to blow up the idiots that annoy her.  Only wish I could Dragon Slave me some spammers.

• Which anime changed your life?

Ultimate Teacher.

1 I'm reading ToraDora! manga and seems quite good, is the anime any good right now?
And out of curiosity, if you don't mind, why Ultimate Teacher?

2 I'm definitely enjoying Toradora! the anime - can't say whether it measures up to the manga, but it's a fine show in and of itself.

As for Ultimate Teacher....  Well, it was the first anime I ever paid for, as opposed to children's shows I watched on TV often not even knowing they came from Japan.  I saw a review in a British games magazine and thought it sounded interesting, and then found a copy of it on the shelf at HMV.

While not all that good, it's certainly weird, and very different to anything on TV at the time (this would have been '94 or '95).  And it intrigued me enough that I went back and picked up a couple of other things, like, oh, Dominion: Tank Police, and Urusei Yatsura, and Ranma, and Tenchi Muyo.

And thus was my fate sealed. wink

Hmm, I'll see if I can get my hands on some ToraDora! (il)legal anime then. Thanks for the tip, Pixy.

Well, I can see what you mean with Ultimate Teacher. Even if it wasn't that good, I bet you get pretty nostalgic about it, isn't it?
