I received a request from cyanime asking me to answer the questions I gave to those I nominated for the Liebster Award. Hence, here are my answers!
1. What was the first anime you’ve watched?
The first anime I’ve watched was probably Pokemon. I watched it when I was seven so I didn’t know it was anime at that time. I used to think of them as cartoons since I watched them on television. If it wasn’t Pokemon, it would be Digimon. It was so long ago that I’ve forgotten which one I watched first. The first anime I watched in Japanese was K-ON!
2. If you’re stranded on an island, what are three things you want with you?
This is kind of hard. I was curious about what the nominees will answer for this question but I don’t really know how to answer it myself. Hmm, a phone would be useless since there shouldn’t be any signal on an isolated island. Thus, the first thing I want is proper shelter so I can get a place to sleep. Second, I want a book. At least I won’t be bored. Third, I want a knife. It’ll be useful.
3. How did you choose your blog title?
I didn’t want this blog to be limited to just anime, so I decided that since I was already a self-proclaimed otaku, I would use “otaku” in my blog name. As for “daydreams”, I felt that it suits my personality as someone who would love to visit the anime world in daydreams to escape from reality.
4. Do you prefer shounen or shoujo anime?
Despite being a girl, I prefer shounen anime. I feel that shoujo anime are mostly about romance, so it gets repetitive after a while. Shounen anime have more action which I enjoy. They get me hyped up easily.
5. What’s the worst decision you ever made?
It’ll have to be watching too much anime instead of studying. Some anime are just too addictive.
6. What’s your favourite anime opening song?
My favourite anime opening song is Guren no Yumiya (Shingeki no Kyojin OP 1) by Linked Horizon. The song is powerful and matches the pace of Shingeki no Kyojin, and the lyrics are a perfect match for the anime.
7. Is anime or manga better?
I started off an a fan of manga but once I watched anime, I found out that anime is much better, especially for shounen anime. In anime, we can see the action more clearly and there are background music that complements the mood.
8. What’s the worst anime you’ve watched?
The worst anime I’ve watched has to be Amnesia. I was curious about it since the plot seemed quite interesting. However, it turned out horrible. If Brothers Conflict was stupid, Amnesia was even worse. The characters have weird eyes and the main character practically has no personality at all. She seems to be emotionless and expressionless all the time.
9. Why did you decide to create a blog?
Before I created Otaku Daydreams, I used to post my thoughts on Twitter. However, only a few of my friends watch anime, so they might be annoyed whenever I tweet so much about anime. Hence, I decided to create a blog where I could share my thoughts with other anime fans who would want to read my reviews.
10. What’s your favourite food?
Japanese food, especially sushi and udon!
11. What’s your favourite genre for anime?
If you’ve been reading my reviews, you’ll probably notice a trend. I’m interested in a variety of genres, but what ends up as one of my favourites will always be an anime with good comedy. That’s the reason why most of the anime I watch are comedies.
To end off, I’m currently watching Kuroko no Basket (season 1 since I just started) so here’s a funny moment with Kuroko and “Otou-san”!
