The ‘Make It Anime’ Tag

A community tag about what books, movies and TV shows would work well as anime

So, uhh it’s been a while since I’ve done a ‘tag’ post, mostly because I’ve been either too busy or too lazy or too forgetful to indulge them! But this one… this one stuck in my brain space for a while and made me think about what I like about anime and what I dislike about conventional Western media. So you know, just standard weeb thoughts y’all! Anyway on with the rules and stuff, thanks to magicconan of The Animanga Spellbook for nominating me!

Rules:

  • Thank the person who nominated you and link back to their blog post.
  • Choose 1 book, movie and TV show of your choice that you think could work as an anime. (A series of books or movies is allowed e.g. Lord of the Rings, Hunger Games)
    • If you want to pick more than 1 from each section that’s fine. Or if you can’t think of one for a specific category that’s fine also.
  • Explain why you think your choices could work as an anime. Maybe the advent of animation would enhance it, maybe the different anime genres could help expand and improve the story. Just go crazy with it.
  • Link back to the original post (this post) so I can read people’s suggestions, I’d love to read everyone’s ideas.
  • Include Make it Anime in your tags so everyone including myself can find them all easily.
  • Nominate around 5-10 bloggers.

And now it begins…

Book Into Anime

I don’t read many books, in fact I can count on one hand the amount of books I’ve read from start to finish… yes it’s that bad. (For the sake of this I don’t count manga as books as I’ve read 100’s if not thousands of manga!) But still to this day, despite my reservations about the author, my favourite book is ‘The Name Of The Wind’ by Patrick Rothfuss. But it’s not because it’s my ~favourite~ that I picked it, it’s because where else but in anime would you be allowed to have a red-headed male character be the protagonist! Certainly not in Hollywood!

Everyone’s favourite male redhead (or maybe just mine).

Movie Into Anime

Oh boy. Too many to choose from really! I mean for me the benefit of anime over a stand-alone movie will always be the freedom to explore and elaborate and so for that simple reason one of the only movies I want to see expanded and explored in an anime is Inception. Dreams and nightmares and the world of the unconscious lend themselves so well to the animated art form that I can only imagine some sort of ‘Ergo Proxy’-esque series set within the world of dreams and for it to be not anything like ‘Paprika’ would be a bonus (sorry if you liked ‘Paprika’)…

I wonder what she’s dreaming about.

TV Show Into Anime

There’s so many TV shows out there whose scope is limited only by the budget of a live action TV series and thus would benefit from an anime adaptation. But let’s not forget the real reason many (mostly myself) are watching anime–and it’s because of the relentless fan service. And what TV show projected more fan service by its name alone (and that unforgettable slo-mo theme) than Baywatch! I mean I never watched a single episode of the show (it’s true, 3D girls have cooties after all) but it’s practically the only live action show to prominently feature “jiggle physics” and that alone nominates it for fan-service stardom. Plus there’s male lifesavers too so this could be the perfect opportunity, not seen since Food Wars, to equalise the fan-service between men and women! Imagine! A show where male and female perverts can watch together in harmony~ this is the true Utopian ideal!

Any excuse to include this gif.

And there’s my 3 picks! Bet you didn’t expect those (or maybe you did, if so good for you for being psychic)! So now I’ve got to nominate some bloggers to participate, if you’ve already been nominated or don’t want to participate no worries!

Real Neat Blog Award – Untold Questions

An Untold Questions blog regarding the ‘Real Neat Blog’ award.

Guess what? What!

Someone thinks you’re ‘real neat’ enough to get an award. Do they think I’m hip and happening and far out and outta sight, too?

Or maybe they just think you’re ‘neat’ as in ‘tidy’? I will also accept that.

But seriously you were nominated for another award ‘The Real Neat Blog Award’ (again)! Somehow I feel like that should read the ‘Real NEET Blog Award’ seems more appropriate all things considered.

I don’t know what that means. Quiet, normie!

Anyway… The Spooky Red Head nominated you! Truly the spookiest of redheads! Thanks for the nomination!

You know the drill, rules plz. Right, 1. Display The Award Logo, 2. Thank The Blogger Who Nominated You, 3. Answer The Questions Of The One Who Nominated You, 4. Nomination 5-10 Bloggers, 5. Ask Them 7 Questions.

Thems the rules! “Thems?”

Shut up, let’s just get to the questions…

  1. Do you have a favourite Care Bear?

That’s like asking if I favourite child! No, I have no children and I have no care bears that I care for, NEXT QUESTION!

  1. What about a favourite My Little Pony?

Why do I feel like I’m being interrogated here? No I’ve never masturbated to MLP hentai, no matter how much you torture me I’ll never admit to it in a court of law! But seriously, no, I do not partake of the “pony”.

  1. Who’s your favourite sailor scout?

Whichever one was gay with the other one, the one where in the English dub they made them sister’s because… “we shan’t dare have something as debauched as same sex relations on this cartoon!” Yeah but I never watched much Sailor Moon either! Talk about the trifecta of animated shows I’ve never watched! 

  1. What genre of music do you like?

I like all genres, except country. Literally, just a look at my iTunes playlist it’s 8000+ tracks of the most random musical choices. But if I had to pick one genre it would be ~alternative~

  1. Do you have a favourite animal?

Do monster girls count? Because I’m partial to a snake girl, bird girl, horse girl and spider girl from Monster Musume… if not and you mean actual boring ass non-anime animal, then I dunno, a flamingo I guess…

  1. Favourite subject in school?

English, because I got to be a smart ass. And Japanese because I am become weeb.

  1. What’s your favourite Disney movie?

What makes you think this ‘Frozen Heart’ of mine likes Disney movies? Just ‘Let it Go’ already… ‘For The First Time In Forever’ I don’t have an answer, okay?

And that’s all the questions now? Yup.

So now you have to nominate 5-10 bloggers! So I heard… right so I nominate:

@negativeprimes (Curiously Dead Cat)

@wdbox (YahariBento)

@jiraiyan (Otaku Orbit)

@keikosanimeblog (Keiko’s Anime Blog)

@magicconan14 (Animanga Spellbook)

To those nominated just know there’s no obligation to make a post, I know things are busy for everyone, just take it in your stride. And to those I’ve neglected to nominate, SORRY! It’s hard to keep track!

And now you have to come up with 7 questions to ask them, no pressure to be interesting and funny FYI… FFFFFFFFFFFUUUU…

Questions? Right, so the questions are:

  1. If you had a BILLION money (currency of your choosing), how much of it would you spend on anime/manga?
  2. What’s your favourite Pokemon!?
  3. Do you play video games? If so what’s your favourite? (Or one of your favourites)
  4. If you could go back and time and tell your child self one thing, what would it be?
  5. How much money would it take for you to walk around the streets of your country’s biggest city holding a dakimakura (body pillow) of your favourite anime character?
  6. What do you like to put on your ice cream?
  7. What’s the meaning of your life? #toodeepforme

And that’s it is it? I think so! Man these award blogs are too much fun! At this point I think I’ve nominated nearly every one of my followers so from here out expect some repetition in who I nominate! Time to sleep now!

Goodnight. ‘Night.

20 Question Weekly Review Week Ending 11th March 2018

A 20 Question Weekly Review for the Week Ending 11th of March 2018.

Another week under the proverbial belt, huh? Indeed.

So a little birdy told me you spent a lot of money on anime merch and mangas last week? Who told you?

As I said a little birdy, a blue one by the name of twitter, you tweeted about it remember? Oh yeah, and yes. I sold some junk on eBay again + some inheritance allowed me to spend about it on merch and manga, one lust hurrah as it were before the scrimping and saving of being unemployed sets back in.

So care to share? Can’t, none of it arrived yet! It’s all due next week so expect a separate post about my various orders from Amazon Japan and Mandarake.

But you got a couple of manga this week? Yes from older orders.

And they were? Um… ‘Bloom Into You’ Volume 2, ‘How To Build A Dungeon: Book of the Demon King’ Volume 1, ‘Shomin Sample’ Volume 1 and ‘There’s A Demon Lord on the Floor’ Volumes 2, 3 and 4.

I’ve got to do something about better lighting when taking these shots.

Decent haul, and which manga did you read? I read ‘Shomin Sample’ which was a fun, but kind of nonsensical harem, like I get the story but there’s so many plot holes. But I’ll keep reading because the girls are super cute. I also read ‘No Game No Life Please’ Volume 1, which I thought was a comical a spin-off manga of the brilliant series ‘No Game No Life’ and it is, but it’s also insanely detailed, and has so much world building and development that I’d dare say its essential reading for fans of the series, which brings me to…

Something that’s not a good spin off? You got it! I read Volume 1 of ‘Monster Musume: I Heart Monster Girls’ and… well, talk about mixed bag. I guess that’s the problem when you have over a dozen authors contributing stories short 4-panel style comics to the Monster Musume universe. Some of these authors just plain suck! Sure it was fun to see some different art styles to these beloved characters, but at least half of the stories were just boring at best and at worst completely out of character.

You’re sounding a bit like a monster girl hipster, wow, there’s a sentence I never thought I’d say… Maybe I am, but reading the really good coolkyoushinja and Shake-O’s chapters it was clear there was a great divide in talent between some of the contributors.

And the other one you read? Hehehe…

Oh dear, I’m in for something perverted now aren’t I? How dare you! I’ll have you know ‘How To Build A Dungeon: Book of the Demon King’ is a totally wholesome… BAHAHA, oh god I couldn’t keep up that ruse any longer!

Right, so go on and tell me what it’s about… It’s hard to explain, right so if you ever played Dungeon Building games like the 90’s game ‘Dungeon Keeper’, or its 2015 spiritual successor War for the Overworld, you’re kinda close to what this manga is about, except add in a WHOLE BUNCH OF SEX. Like literally every chapter has an explicit sex scene that’s about a pencil’s width from being literal porn… it’s great!

Uh-huh… so let’s quickly change the subject and talk about anime! Ok, sure, a good week of anime, nothing especially remarkable from previous weeks, though I’ve put Darling in the FranXX on a personal hiatus, I’ll go back to it every 6 episodes to make a quarterly post but I can’t deal with watching it week to week.

Fair enough, what was the best airing show of the week? Probably citrus (episode 10 review here), which is a sentence I didn’t expect to be saying, though that said Slow Start and Dagashi Kashi were very good too. Everything else was consistent with how it’s been throughout the season.

Any other anime? Oh yeah! I started watching Killing Bites, it’s silly but it’s a lot of fun.

Anything else to report from the week? Yes! I started writing a light novel, and with the exception of this blog it’s probably the most fun I’ve ever had writing something! I look forward to sharing it with you all!

Great, but I already knew that, I read your twitter posts, remember? Way to spoil my fun!

And on the site? New stuff! I made my first manga review on Nurse Hitomi’s Monster Infirmary, which should become a weekly occurrence (different manga each week FYI), and also a Top 10 List of the Best OP’s of the 2018 Winter Anime season under the ‘Listing Compulsive’ banner, hopefully people enjoy these new types of posts because they’re not going away any time soon!

And that’s it then? I think so, yeah.

Great so how would you rate the week ending 11th of March 2018. A great week for starting new things, I’m really enthusiastic about all my new projects both on the site and in my creative writing! Thank you all for reading and continuing to support my blog!
