08 -- who is your favorite anime character?

Judging solely by merchandise owned, it's some sort of unholy tie between Athrun Zala and Gundam Exia.

I feel like whoever wrote this meme didn't consider there are people who've been watching anime for, y'know, decades.

... There sure is a hell of a lot of annoying absolutism in this damn meme.

I don't have one. I'm never going to have one. Hell I can't even choose one favorite character from most series let alone some horse manure like "favorite anime character".

*thinks*

Fafner: Kouyou.

There. There's a favorite character where the screaming hells are my Kouyou icons

(now I'm caught up!)

07 - have you ever watched an entire anime in one sitting?

Absolutely! The most recent, I'm pretty sure, is the newest Cyborg 009 that's on Netflix right now. I've watched straight thru some of the five-minute shows on Crunchyroll, if those count? Plenty of 3-6 episode OVAs. [personal profile] taichara and I got through Star Driver in something close to one sitting, and we also did Gundam Wing in about two days once? There was definitely food/sleep involved in the latter, though. But it was still fairly impressive. Boycritter and I have also done huge chunks of Naruto and Kenshin via Netflix - it's easy enough to cuddle up together and watch ~20 episodes overnight. ^^;;

Years and years ago, a group of friends I had always wanted to do some marathon events of 'the classics' like Escaflowne. Get a ton of food, etc. and spend ~12 hours watching Escaflowne, etc. Maybe Evangelion, whatever else they were into? IDK... But it never happened.

I honestly don't have much of an attention span anymore. I can put on a disc and watch it thru, but I'm also beading or picking up in the living room or whatever.

06 -- list your Top 5 anime OTPs.

Let's not even start with shipping... I like ships, I have ships, but I am so sick of shipping as a fandom thing. Also, I literally have, like, no OTPs. Not at the level of 'anyone else with these people is wrong'-fanaticism I've seen the term described with. I have some heavily-preferred pairings, sure, but I'm not inflexible. The closes thing to an OTP I have... one half has a kid with someone else, that's cool, and whatever. (Also, not anime. Also, I can think of two examples of that floating around in my fandoms... huh. Still not anime.)

06 -- Five rescue licenses that thankfully happened.

• Revolutionary Girl Utena - with the Blu-rays coming this year after a DVD release a few years back, Utena was a wonderful rescue license to hear about, since Central Park Media has been gone for aaaages. Also, the manga version had a gorgeous reissue a couple of months back.

• All of Gundam - with Bandai NA going under a few years back, Gundam in North America was looking very rocky. Luckily, Sunrise partnered with Nozomi/Rightstuf to put out everything in lovely new sets, including series we didn't think we'd ever get. Oh, and Gundam Wing on Blu-ray very soon!

• A ton of other Bandai stuff -- Outlaw Star, Escaflowne, Code Geass, etc. All rescued and recently put back in print. So many good old shows finally available. Still waiting on Dunbine, though.

• Martian Successor Nadesico - oh, c'mon, we all knew I'd pick a lot of mecha! Nadesico is a show that never quite knows what it wants to be, but it's good to see it back in print.

• Sailor Moon & Cardcaptor Sakura - not a surprise, either of these, but still very very welcome.

And:

One rescue license I'd love to see but probably will never happen -

pretty much everything I still have on VHS Holy shit. I was going to say the truly atrocious original Eat-Man anime, but Discotek put it out at the end of last year. I don't even words. So let's go with Final Fantasy: Legend of the Crystals. It'll never see the light of DVD or Blu-ray, but it will never be forgotten.

Prone as I am to more lengthy series on top of unpredictable and sometimes insane work schedules, this doesn't happen all that often.

That said, I'm pretty sure that [personal profile] kalloway and myself blitzed through all of Star Driver in one go or at the very least in one day, lol ~

Also, Gin'iro no Olynssis was one short one that, iirc, I stuffed into my skull in one long workshift that time.

Kingdom Hearts III has less Disney worlds than Kingdom Hearts II; Final Fantasy VII Remake further along in some areas

"The Toy Story world is set after Toy Story 2. It isn’t a parallel world. Rather, the events of Kindgom Hearts III are part of the Toy Story time axis. (In other words, it is canon.)"

"While it is not shown in the trailer, at the start Sora is mistaken for a character in the latest game to be released in this world."

...

...

As neatly summarized by a helpful goon on Something Awful:

"So the Toy Story universe exists within the Kingdom Hearts universe but Kingdom Hearts is a game in the Toy Story universe. And it's also canon.

Ok Nomura"

I've seen a bunch of character memes going around and sure, why not~ Snagged this one from [personal profile] taichara

Give me a character and I'll tell you...


• what they'd do if they had a kitten in their shorts
• what they'd do if sent on a multi-week camping trip
• their most fabulous moment in canon
• what they'd sing at karaoke (and how they'd do)
• what they think about in the shower
• what they'd do if someone appeared claiming to be their kid from the future
• what they'd do if someone appeared claiming to be their kid from the past
• what kind of hobbies they have
• if their hair color is natural and how I know
• if this character is dead, and if so, if they can get better

ETA: my characters are fair game too!

I don't do OTPs.

Shipping in general very seldom has appeal for me as a be-all and end-all of fannish interests to begin with, and an "OTP" is the worst kind of fannish absolutism as far as I'm concerned.

Years of watching other people fight like cats and dogs over them does nothing to convince me I'm wrong, either.

05 -- list five anime you'd show to someone new to anime

(in no order)
• Pretear
• Here is Greenwood
• Kino's Journey
• Generator Gawl
• Ayakashi ~ Bakeneko

Short things, which hold together, in a variety of genres which aren't entirely reliant on 'genre savvy'/knowledge of anime tropes while also introducing them.

The runner-up was Escaflowne, which is a bit long (given the lumpy bit it hits in the middle), but still came right to mind.

Kingdom Hearts 3 Director Tetsuya Nomura Explains What Took So Long

"“A lot of people have been mentioning and making it sound like ‘Oh, Nomura’s taking too much time,’ and it hurts,“ Nomura said, through a translator. He explained that the decision was made above his head to switch development to Unreal Engine 4 after about a year of development, which caused extensive delays. In addition, certain timing and resources challenges within Square Enix had an effect."

"He was keen to emphasize that it hasn’t been problems with development or any choices made by him or his team that have caused Kingdom Hearts 3 to take so long. “I wanted to emphasize that it wasn’t a problem on our development teams," he said. "It just happened that way, and there were some decisions that the company had to make, and it just didn’t work out for certain timings that we were hoping to hit.”

“It’s kind of out of my hands,” he added. “I mean, yes, time has passed. But it’s out of my hands.”
"

...

...

AHAHAHAHAHHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHHAA

FUCK YOU NOMURA

SOME OF US HAVEN'T FORGOTTEN YOUR YEARS OF "WE WON'T START UNTIL VERSUS XIII IS COMPLETE" AND THEN YOU FUCKING AROUND AND STALLING THAT GAME FOR YEARS

STOP YOUR FUCKING CRYING AND REWRITING HISTORY AHAHAHAHA

05 -- list your top 5 anime.

I don't do "top [anythings]" any more than I choose or have a "favorite", really. Thoughts change, opinions change, what I want to poke at at any given time changes, and I really don't feel compelled to rank things that I like. Say, ever. You could ask me something like "do you like SEED more than SEED Destiny/Fushigi Yuugi more than Ranma 1/2" etc etc and I could probably muster up an answer (that may well change later for whatever reason), but that's about it.

So, all that being said, if I root around in my hindbrain right this moment for what anime series are currently claiming the lion's share of interest/attention -- though not necessarily a "Top 5" in any capacity -- we have:

01. Saint Seiya (and associated subseries)
02. Yoroiden Samurai Troopers
03. Gundam 00
04. Casshern SINS
05. Star Driver
