Thank you to Shoka, the guy that overdid his Made in Abyss review, and the book enthusiast that refuses to be a book blogger, Keiko, for nominating me for this tag award chain game. Seriously though, Shoka’s review is great. Sincerity is an element of reviews you instantly spot in a well written one. Anyways, I’ve been nominated by both, and I thank them for the chance for me to talk about myself.

Seven stuff about me
I’m not sure how serious I’m supposed to be in this post. I’ll just do three dumb things and four anime blogger/reviewer things about me. I’ll try to avoid mentioning incest as much as possible, but I can’t promise anything.
Ever since the very first review I’ve made, I always have the “Best of” Album of Chatmonchy on loop when I write them. I used to have a mix playlist of Taylor Swift, YUI, and Chatmonchy. I soon grew out of loving YUI though. I also became old enough to realize that I hate Taylor Swift, so Chatmonchy remained. I love their songs, because you just know they wrote it themselves. I’m not a fan of artists not making their own songs. That’s the main reason why I like the 3 artists here, because they write their own songs. Taylor Swift sold out though, and YUI lost her passion for music, so it’s kinda hard to listen to their songs now. And this just got serious, didn’t it?
- Summer Song
Back when I was in serious depression, like ready to just end myself, it was YUI that got me through most days. This is one of my favorite songs from her vast list of impressive, and now iconic, discography. Summer Song is just upbeat and brimming with positivity and it rubs off on me. Thank you very much, YUI.
I have never been admitted to a hospital. Not once in my life, and I think part of that is because I am deathly afraid of needles. Now don’t get me wrong, I don’t mind cutting myself. I’ve been stabbed before. I get cuts and deep lacerations that the blood gushing out would turn black because of how much is coming out. I’ve seen the bone in my arm before, and it was awesome. I’m fine with all of that, but holy sh*t, I lose myself when it comes to needles. This small thing coming into your body and taking out your blood, I just don’t like it. The first time I visited a hospital is for a medical exam, and I was with my boss since she agreed to pay the ridiculously expensive medical tests. They needed to take blood from my arm, and I was not ready for that. I was crying like a baby while my boss comforts me, but I also know the ridicule I’ll be facing afterwards. The doctor punctured me twice too. First time, he missed the artery and I’m pretty sure he just went in a second time because he was f*cking with me. At the end of the day, my boss has a video of me crying like a baby in her cellphone while a doctor takes my blood. She shows it to me from time to time just because she hates me.
Have you ever been on the receiving end of a Sweet Chin Music? I have.
Back when I was assisting in this rich school meant for rich kids, like super rich, I think mostly senators and mall owners with a rich family background goes there, I was breaking up a fight between two students. They were girls too, so I was light on the touching. I also made sure another teacher was there, since I’m not really employed and things could go bad if someone complained about my actions. I wasn’t aware though that both girls are serious capoeira students or something. Either way, I got between them and one girl slapped me hard. The other took her shoes off and super kicked me. I wasn’t even mad. I just found the whole thing awesome. I shot them my “I will f*cking end you” stare, and the whole situation diffuses afterwards.
Yeah, someone is stealing my reviews. I don’t mind though. It’s like a form of flattery, so I let it be. They take chunks or parts of my review, and they make a new review out of it. I’m pretty sure they also steal other reviews from other people, but I find the whole thing harmless. As long as they don’t make profit off my work, then I’m fine with. They’re also not the first, tbh. I’m just that good of a reviewer, I guess. *tries to pay self on back, realizes too fat*
- Mouryou no Hako
Personally, this is my favorite review I’ve done. I consider reviewing the anime itself daunting, but I wanted to make sure I nail this review of a novel anime. I’m not proud of my Shin Sekai yori review, and I am embarrassed with my Eccentric Family review. I wanted this one to really be awesome, as to make up for the bad reviews I’ve given to the previous novel anime. Personally, I think I did a good job. I consider it a triumph, and I hope other people find it good as well.
- Kino’s Journey
I’m nervous about this anime. I mean, why reboot it? Shaft tried to revive the interest in the show once upon a time, and the director’s charm was lacking in the movies after the original series. It just didn’t feel like the show I grew up with. But I get it, this is a new generation. Let’s give this new crowd of anime enthusiasts a chance to be introduced to Kino, and I’m fine with that.
Even if this new series is successful or not though, the new generation will be introduced to an inferior adaptation. They’ll grow up not realizing the original series’ charm is so timeless and powerful that their version of Kino tried to recapture that magic. I’m hoping for the best though, but Kino is special for me. He was there when I’m alone. He turned my cognitive cogs as I try to internalize each episode, and quite honestly, TPAB would be incomplete without Kino’s influence. So they better nail this new series.
Again, I consider this award chain tag thing a way to help introduce bloggers to other bloggers. I’ll tag some new people I’ve been following on WP. Cheers!
