I’ve done this before but I will do it again. Thanks to Joe from The Reviewers Corner for nominationg me for this award. You can check his post here.

The rules:

Thank the person who nominated you and include a link to their blog.

Share 5 facts about yourself.

Nominate 15-20 bloggers and add their links.

Notify the bloggers you included.

Keep the rules in your post to make it easy for everyone to know what to do!

 

My random facts:

1) My friends see and categorize me as smart just because I scored higher than them in exams. I don’t consider myself as a smart person (by smart I mean naturally smart. Like, you don’t have to study to get high scores). However, it’s fun being the ‘smartest’ person in the group because you can talk big. But it’s not fun at the same time because you know you are actually not smart.

2)  Gaming is NOT my hobby. It used to be but not anymore because I think gaming is like doing the same thing over and over again. The only difference is the graphic for each newer games increased ever so slightly. Oh, and I’m talking about video games (of course). But you know, Total War: Shogun 2 is really good I must say.

3) Playing basketball is one of my hobby. Many people especially guys here will play badminton or football or something similar but I think it’s too common so I tried something different. I tried basketball and it turned out that I really like playing this sport. However, my physical disadvantage (I’m way too short for this sport) really frustrates me. But hey, at least I enjoy playing it even though I lose most of the time especially in the beginning. It’s not like I can’t play other sports. I can play badminton pretty well but I prefer basketball because it’s more enjoyable and well, not many people play it so I can consider myself special haha… However, I don’t play basketball much now.

4) Playing Basketball pretty much gives me the idea of effort can overcome talent. I mean, I’m not naturally talented in the sport and I don’t have physical advantages but after some time playing and practicing that sport, I got better and better to the point that I could beat some other more talented players who didn’t practice. That is one of the reason why I started writing even though I know I don’t have the talent. Because I know by experience that if I put enough effort on it, I could be a better than those gifted people.

5) I haven’t watched any anime for a week now… please help me.

I won’t nominate anybody now because well, I think other bloggers have enough awards to tackle.

Creative Blogger Award

Jiraiyan from The Otaku Orbit has nominated me for this award. Thank you very much, I appreciate it. Now this award is surprisingly short.

Here are the rules for this award:

  • Thank the person who nominated you and include a link to their blog.
  • Share 5 facts about yourself.
  • Nominate 15 – 20 bloggers and add their links.
  • Notify the bloggers you included.
  • Keep the rules in your post to make it easy for everyone to know what to do!

Because to me, finding facts about myself is pretty difficult,  I’ll just share things about myself which are relate to anime.

1) I usually watch 3 to 7 episodes of anime per day. Of course sometimes more than that but rarely. And of course, sometimes less because life.

2) I watch at least 2 anime simultaneously.

3) One is relaxed anime such as comedy or romance, the other is dark or depressing anime. I believe it’s the most balanced way to watch anime.

4) Watching more than 4 episodes of the same anime per day is considered a sin to me. However, if the anime is so engaging, I’ll watch it anyway. Because you know, sometimes I just have to know what happens next.

5) I’ll probably watch the sequel of any anime I’ve watched even if I hated it. That means I still have Seitokai Yakuindomo season 2 to watch. Oh and Love Live season 2, The disappearance of Nagato Yuki-Chan… And…and the movie sequel of Code Geass. Dang it!! I have much to catch up!

So I think that’s it. It’s really short right?

Here are my nominees:

‘Otaku’ is a sensitive word?

Scene 1

“ I’m an otaku,”

“Oh my God oh my God oh my God! Don’t you know that otaku is actually an insult in Japan?!”

“Yes but…,”

“And yet you still use this word? You’re a total disgrace to the society! You have no life whatsoever and all you do all day is watch anime,”

“That’s not really true actually…,”

“Get the hell out of here you freaking weaboo!!”

 

Scene 2

“I’m an otaku,”

“Oh really? You really think you’re an otaku? Do you know who Akane Riko is?”

“Well, since you mentioned it, I guess she’s a voice actress?”

“WRONG!!! She’s a voice actress, a singer and a dancer. She also draws a little bit of manga,”

“Whoa that’s cool!”

“But you don’t know her right? I bet you don’t even know even one character she plays and yet you call yourself an otaku? You’re a total disgrace to all ‘real otaku’ out there’!!”

“Sorry then, I didn’t mean…,”

“Get the hell out of here you false otaku!!”

Of course these scenes are a bit exaggerated and I just made up the name but you get what I mean right? These situations are pretty much the more obvious situations and one of the first things I’ve seen entering the anime culture.

So, thanks again Fabledhunter for nominating me for this award. You can check his Liebster award here. I mentioned again because he was the one who tagged me for doing the basic questions thing. I might say I was lucky because if he didn’t tag me and nominate me for this award, I don’t know who will considering I’m not active in the anime blogging community. Regardless, I feel happy to get the chance to do something like this again.

It should be noted that there are a few rules to this award which I will disclose at the end of this post. Without further ado, let’s answer the questions given by my nominator.
