50 Questions About Samui

I am currently parroting The Flawfinder in this post. (Uhh. Let me borrow these questions please?). Granted that I am not enjoying The World God Only Knows Season 2 and I am still on my Rakugo rewatch, no original Samui thoughts for today. Let’s start, shall we?

1. Who is the best male anime character?

The Monte Cristo. Darn, that dude is so charismatic and dangerous but you can’t help but be drawn to him at the same time.

1b. Who is the male anime character you want to shoot in the face the most?

Tatsuya Shiba from The Irregular at Magic High School. I’ve never been so appalled by a Gary Stu before him.

Runner up: Haruta from HaruChika because he ate Google and Wikipedia.

EDIT: Mabuchi Kyouma from Dimension W is also a surefire contender in this question. Why so misogynistic towards Mira?

2. Who is the best female anime character?

Watanabe Saki of Shin Sekai Yori is the first one that came into my mind when I read this question.

2b. Who is the female anime character you want to shoot in the face the most?

Uhh… any annoying imouto will do. Ah! That imouto in Denpa Kyoushi.

3. What is your favorite anime soundtrack?

Baccano! or Mushishi or Cowboy Bebop

4. What is your favorite opening song + animation?

Baccano! takes the cake from all the shows I saw so far.

4b. What is the opening song + animation that gave you dog aids?

As if Denpa Kyoushi’s awful OP sequence is not enough.

5. What is your favor­ite anime end­ing song + animation?

Yozakura Quartet – Hana no Uta’s ED. That gives me pure shounen ai bliss.

Serious answer: Psycho Pass S1’s ED is an awesome cyberpunk piece.

5b. What is the ending song + animation that made you want to commit suicide?

Mayoiga’s ED is as lazy as heck and I don’t care even an inch with the characters it shows per episode a la MS Powerpoint Presentation

6. What anime scene made you leap out of your chair and scream in joy?

I remember a moment in Eccentric Family when Ebisugawa’s plan to become the next leader was foiled because everyone turned back to tanukis due to the fear of being cooked. Yeah, that one. I thought “Serves you right!” for the first time.

Runner up: The last episode of School Days was sheer fun and so with Another’s insane ending.

7. If you could meet an anime char­ac­ter who would it be?

Is there any anime character who’s not a high schooler and is actually good? Ayumi from Honey and Clover, maybe. For a dude? Yotaro from Shouwa Genroku Rakugo Shinjuu will do.

8. What anime char­ac­ter is most sim­ilar to you in terms of personality?

I am more like Hikigaya Hachiman way back in high school.

9. What is your favor­ite thing about anime?

The visual aesthetics and its moving plot which Western shows cannot imitate.

10. What is your least favor­ite thing about anime?

Lolis. Sexualized lolis. I hate shows with lolis who are too sensual for their age.

11. Who are your favor­ite anime couple?

Isaac and Miria because these two are freakin’ awesome. Yet the power couple of Okazaki and Nagisa from Clannad took my heart away.

11b. Which is the most likely couple to get a divorce?

Kirito and Asuna. I cannot see how their relationship will work in the long run.

12. Who is your favor­ite anime animal?

Sakamoto from Nichijou. Or Daru from She and Her Cat.

13. What anime would make a good game?

Girls und Panzer. Moe + Actual action = Hit!

14. What game would make a good anime?

Final Fantasy I guess. What I mean is an actual 26 episode anime series and not those animated films.

15. What was the first anime you ever watched?

Excluding those big shounen titles in the 1990s, it was Sword Art Online. Yes, I am a late bloomer in this community.

15b. What was the first anime you watched that sucked so hard?

Recently, My Little Sister Acts Unusual. I honestly think it was much worse than Guilty Crown.

16. Do you think you’ll ever stop watch­ing anime?

Around the same time I’ll stop breathing, I guess.

17. What is your favor­ite genre of anime?

Slice of Life and Psychological Thriller. I’ll eat anything Evangelion/Psycho Pass/Shin Sekai Yori/Akagami no Shirayukihime.

18. What is your least favor­ite genre of anime?

As much as a fudanshi I am, I loathe how yaoi portrays same sex relationships in anime. Also don’t expect me to watch ecchi shows unless it’s Grisaia.

19. Are you open about watch­ing anime with people you know?

People call me an otaku in flesh, isn’t that enough?

20. Have you ever been to Japan?

Not yet. I plan to go next year once I have the money.

21. What anime disappointed you so much that you started to lose faith in it?

Elfen Lied and Gangsta. Both sucked so hard in their respective latter halves and made me rethink about investing emotionally in anime shows.

22. What anime made you out to be a fool for questioning its awesomeness?

Mawaru Penguindrum and Evangelion.

23. What is the best anime fight scene?

That Kiritsugu versus Kirei match from Fate Zero was simply amazing.

24. Who is your anime waifu?

Uhm… Can I ask for a husbando instead? Well, Akane from Grisaia no Kajitsu will do.

25. What was your favor­ite video game as a child?

Donkey Kong, but I was never able to finish that game because I love books more than everything.

25b. What was the worst video game you played as a child? 

Uh… I cannot remember to be honest.

26. Most Embar­rass­ing moment?

I wrote a song for Pokemon and my sister caught me singing that song. That was 14 years ago.

27. Can you drive?

No. I think I can fly.

28. Are you mature?

Depends on who I speak with.

29. What year were you born?

An early 1990s kid.

Both. I have a cat at home and I have three freakin’ dogs who think I am their god or something.

31. Describe your­self physically.

Copy and paste how a generic MC in a LN adaptation looks. That’s it.

32. What would you name your first child?

Clark, or Krishna.

I fell on a river while riding a bicycle when I was in grade school.

34. What is your worst habit?

Detaching myself from any form of connection with the people I speak with.

36. Do you have a tattoo?

I don’t.

37. Are you a morn­ing per­son or a night person?

Depends on the day. I am a morning person during weekdays but a night person on weekends because I have to catch up with all of these anime shows.

38. Have you ever slept past midday

Yes. When I still write for European websites, I slept at 5 am. Darn it. It took a toll to my already lanky figure.

39. Do you regret anything?

Saying yes to a proposal which scarred me for life.

40. Can you count the num­ber of friends you have on one hand?

Nope. I am pretty well-known in real life because I used to be a university professor. I am not emotionally invested with most people I know though.

41. Do you wear glasses?

Yes. I am near legally blind.

42. Are you a picky eater?

Just don’t feed me anything weird and we’re good.

43. Would you die for someone?

For my family? Yes. Someone else? No.

44. If you could have any super­power, what would it be?

Ability to turn back time and correct things which I thought are ridiculously stupid.

45. Do you believe in the supernatural?

Yes. I believe in God after all. So ghosts must be real, aren’t they?

46. Would you rather be rich or famous?

Rich – then I’ll invest in the stock market and travel all over the world. Or buy all those anime BDs.

47. Have you ever com­mit­ted a crime?

I think I am too good for crimes.

48. Time Trav­eler or ghost?

Time Traveler.

49. Does someone have a crush on you?

Well, a young sensei is a magnet for those scary students. I know for sure that someone else in the university created an R-18 doujinshi about me and these other young professors. Ew.

50. Are you in a relationship?

Yes. I have a girlfriend who I labelled as yandere.

  1. “The visual aesthetics and its moving plot which Western shows cannot imitate.” I wonder what you mean by the moving plot? This deserves a page all to itself.

    No-one ever makes doujinshi about me :(. I guess because I’m way more heterosexual than is healthy (this was an actual problem for me growing up). Wouldn’t being poor and famous suck? All those autographs on the bus every day…
    First I’ve heard of the professor thing. Should I refer to you as doctor? I’m sadly pretty well known in real life. My secret identity could probably be cracked in 10 minutes, which is shocking.

    Best OP: Ergo Proxy. Worst OP: Kyoukai no Rinne OP2
    Best ED: Either Gundam Unicorn or Sprinter by Kalafina. Worst ED: No idea. FMAB 3 is the only bad one that comes to mind.


  2. “No-one ever makes doujinshi about me😦. I guess because I’m way more heterosexual than is healthy (this was an actual problem for me growing up).”

    – A friend now is too busy shipping me with some random persons she thinks I might be compatible with. I got tired of complaining so I just let her fulfill her happiness. hahaha. Me? Pretty neutral (I don’t know if that is a good thing actually).

    “First I’ve heard of the professor thing. Should I refer to you as doctor? I’m sadly pretty well known in real life. My secret identity could probably be cracked in 10 minutes, which is shocking.”

    – Well, I used to teach in a university. I changed my career recently though.

    I think I need to see Rinne and Ergo Proxy. These are sitting in my computer for a long time now.


    1. Oh, Rinne is basically the poster child for the term “mediocre” these days. But Ergo Proxy is a must. I hope to write about it soon, but I’d need a second watch. The OP is objectively amazing, though,


  3. Entertaining Q&As. I may want to steal some of these questions for myself someday….

    Haruta from HaruChika because he ate Google and Wikipedia.

    This makes me laugh. Damn kid made me quit his anime, even if I kind of like Chika.

    How did you discover the existence of that doujinshi, by the way?


    1. I have many acquaintances (who are students in the university I used to teach with) and also loves fujoshi series. One jokingly warned me about that. Whether it’s really true or not, I am entertained by the though. Muwahaha.
