Next on this 50 Question streak, following OC, Miyu, Fosh, and Kyo, is me, the currently swamped-in-assignments Hoshi! While poor BRS, Bakuman 2, and a manga digest have to sit on my back-burner for yet another week, I managed to squeeze in some time to type down my own answers. Now let’s reveal some of my more tame secrets~!

1. Who is your favorite male anime character?
A very tough question as I like a lot of male characters, but I guess my top pick would be Akito Takagi from Bakuman. I’ve been fascinated with his cool, quirky, boldness from the first time I started watching Bakuman; the manga just furthered my love for his character. Takagi is just overall an inspirational character for me, especially as a writer and a person who has some pretty big dreams to accomplish.

2. Who is your favorite female character?
I have a thing for bad-ass, independent female characters, so my choice would be Anri Sonohara for Durarara!!.

3. What is your favorite anime soundtrack?
It will forever be the Kuroshitsuji Black Box soundtrack. I remember buying it and just falling absolutely in love with all the tracks. It really soothed the hidden Classical music fan in me.

4. What is your favorite anime opening + animation?
First thing that popped into my head was ‘Paraiso’ from Michiko e Hatchin. I don’t know if anyone has even heard of this anime, but I found it by chance during the summer and loved it. I still need to finish it though *sob* Anyway, I love the Latin influences in the song and the colorful, wacky animation~.

5. What is your favorite anime ending song + animation?
Without a doubt, ‘Zessei Bijin’ from Sayonara Zetsubou Sensei. Why? Because of reasons…

6. What is your favorite anime scene?
Because Kuragehime is undoubtedly my favorite series of all time: It was episode 5, after Tsukimi sees Shu walking with Shoko after the redevelopment meeting. She starts to sink into the sidewalk, hoping that she’ll become a jellyfish in the after life, and falls into a calm ocean. Not only was it beautifully animated, but I connected to that short scene, which has made it one of the most memorable scenes of Kuragehime for me.

7. If you could meet an anime character, who would it be?
Still riding the Kuragehime train here; it’d be Kuranosuke. I would love a makeover and some fashion tips.

8. What anime character is most similar to you in terms of personality?
I’d say it’s an odd mix of Tsukimi from Kuragehime, Hiramaru from Bakuman, and a tad bit of Takagi from Bakuman. I have most of Tsukimi’s traits; from the head-banging and over-racting when remembering something embarrassing to the intense otaku side of me. However I also have Hiramaru’s terrible work ethic and over all weirdness, but at the same time Takagi’s boldness and overall…style (if that makes sense).

9. What is your favorite thing about anime?
That you can escape into whole other worlds and aren’t limited to anything! Anime became a different escape from reality than any other forms because the stories and the animation were just so crazy and totally out there. It really ended up inspiring me to be more imaginative~.

10. What is your least favorite thing about anime?
That it’s ridiculously expensive to buy…seriously!

11. Who are your favorite anime couple?
After much deliberation within myself, I’ve decided to name Shinra and Celty from Durarara!! as my favorite couple. I don’t know how many times I’ve said this, but I love opposite couples. These two have a unique, albeit kinda weird, relationship that touches at a soft spot in my heart as well.

12. Who is your favorite anime animal?
Kurara from Kuragehime! I cannot resist that cute voice!

13. What anime would make a good game?
I was going to say Madoka, but upon my searching on one of my favorite online stores, I found out it was, orz. I can’t think of anything else really, I mean, even BAKUMAN is a game!

14. What game would make a good anime?
I don’t play video games at all, so I’m not sure…maybe that otome game about the pigeons Karakuri reviewed?

15. What was the first anime you ever watched?
Pokemon. I was one of the biggest Pokemon nerds in elementary school. I still have my Pikachu Game Boy purse-thing and my Pokemon bed sheets, hahaha!

16. Do you think you’ll ever stop watching anime?
I’ve asked myself this a couple of times during my more stressful days where I honestly doubt my involvement in the fandom. My final conclusion was that, no I don’t think I will. It will probably dwindle a bit, I mean, I do prefer manga over anime most of the time and I’m extremely picky, but there will always be an anime that will rouse out that fangirl in me or send me into complete awe like Kimi to Boku and Mawaru Penguindrum did for me last year.

17. What is your favorite genre of anime?
Not really a genre but, I’m always falling for really weird, unique anime to which I’ll never get the themes to.

18. What is your least favorite genre of anime?
Probably sports. I’m just not a sports person at all.

19. Are you open about watching anime with people you know?
My family and friends do know I watch anime, but I hardly watch anime with anyone because I talk and make comments to myself constantly. It’s a habit I cannot stop! But if it’s something really good that I end up owning, I’ll try to press it on my family and friends. Recently, I got my sister into Kuragehime, heeheehee (ノ◕ヮ◕)ノ*:・゚✧

20. Have you ever been to Japan?
No, but I would LOVE to go. I even made a travel plan for Tokyo for one of my classes…

21. What anime was the biggest let down for you?
Togainu no Chi. Such a disappointment in the end…

22. What anime was better than expected?
Kimi to Boku. I’d didn’t think I’d fall so head over heels in love with that show, which reminds me, KIMI TO BOKU SEASON 2 THIS SPRING YO~

23. What is the best anime fight scene?
I don’t think I could be a really good judge of that since I don’t watch much action/battle anime, but some of my favorites scenes were from Ao no Exorcist. I still occasionally drool over Hime’s gifs…

24. Who is your anime husbando?
I have no idea, but for some reason my head is telling me to say Shouma from Mawaru Penguindrum, HA. He’s just so adorable and has the ideal body type I like in guys and he’s young.

25. What was your favorite video game as a child?
POKEMON SAPPHIRE! It’s the only video game I have ever beaten *sniff* (as I have no patience for video games).

26. Most Embarrassing moment?
My whole high school life was an embarrassing moment, but for me it was during my koreaboo (which is the same as a weaboo, but for Korean culture) days, and I was acting really stupid with my friends, talking nonsense. Little did I know that the attractive Korean guy I had a crush on, who usually took another bus, was on the same bus that day. I didn’t know he was on until we stopped at the first stop and he got off with his friends. I was so mortified I avoided that guy for the rest of his time at my high school. Even now I get embarrassed just thinking of him because of that incident, and the fact that I was such a creeper around him. Sometimes I wish I could apologize. *sigh*

27a. Can you drive?
Mhm, though I occasionally question how the state of California ever issued me a driver’s license…

27b. Do you own a car?
Yes~ A white Chevy Malibu Classic with the word ‘Classic’ on the back missing the last C so it just says ‘Classi’. COME STALK ME YA’LL~

28. Are you mature?
HAHAHAHA NOPE. I have to thank my younger siblings for that since there’s a significant age difference between us and I’ve had to keep my mind young to have more fun with them.

29. What year were you born?
1993 (ノ◕ヮ◕)ノ*:・゚✧

30. Do you prefer cats or dogs?
Cats. I’m sorry but I…hate dogs. It’s mainly a “Their barking is noisy” issue because I hate when there’s so much noise going on around me; I can only stand one source of noise. Of course, I won’t be rude when visiting someone else’s home with dogs; I just try my best to stay away from their dogs.

31. Describe yourself physically.
Well, I’m on the chunky side, but not-so chunky since being tall kind of leans me out. My hair is dark brown, wavy, and usually cut short. I’m also pretty light skinned, probably from spending too much time indoors because living in South Central California will definitely get you tanned (What’s funny though is that my arms are tanner than my face).

32. What would you name your first child?
I have a lot of names I love picked out, but I won’t truly know unless I actually see my child. When it comes to naming, there’s a specific name that just comes from their image when I see them…Yeah I’m kinda weird…

33. What is the worst injury you have ever had?
Spraining my knee last year when trying to do this dance move on the game Just Dance for the Wii (not naming the song because that’s embarrassing). My kneecap actually moved out of place, but my mom ended up pushing back in before taking me to the emergency room. I had never used crutches before, nor worked out any upper leg muscle, so I had a tough time with them and couldn’t go to my last days of high school. My entire body was sore for the next two weeks; my knee was swollen for a month.

34. What is your worst habit?
DEFINITELY PROCRASTINATING. It has gotten to a very bad point lately and I wish I could muster up a better work ethic…

35. Do you drink or smoke?
No on both. But, I do like the smell of cigarette smoke, and I plan on getting drunk at least once to see how it feels.

36. Do you have a tattoo?
Nope, but I wouldn’t mind a small one on my wrist or something. I can only imagine myself having words or kanji; nothing too elaborate. I’m scared of the pain though!

37. Are you a morning person or a night person?
I would have to say morning. I’ve been getting up at 5-6 AM since I was in elementary school, so it’s a habit that’s hard to kill. I’m definitely in a better mood in the morning; at night I just act crazy, if you’ve seen me on twitter at that time.

38. Have you ever slept past midday?
Once, and that was from jet lag when I went to my family’s hometown in Mexico. I hate sleeping past 10AM; my body feels incredibly lazy and laggy.

39. Do you regret anything?
Oh, many, many things. A lot of them are personal, but I can say that it most deals with high school opportunities that I didn’t take…

40. Can you count the number of friends you have on one hand?
Close friends? Yes. Generally…probably yes.

41. Do you wear glasses?
YES~ I tried contacts for a while, but it hurt my eyes too much, plus I think I look better in glasses, heh.

42. Are you a picky eater?
Oh yes. I can’t eat certain foods because I’ve been fed them too much (because my family is cheap); for example sandwiches, ramen, tuna, and cereal. I can only eat those foods if I add something special to them, like I’ll put egg in my ramen or demand chips to eat with my sandwich. I also refuse to eat spaghetti and jello because of their textures. I also hate any fruit in any savory dish, especially apples.

43. Would you die for someone?
…To be honest, I can’t answer that question.

44. If you could have any superpower, what would it be?
Teleportation and telekinesis! Teleportation so I can travel wherever I want for FREE, and telekinesis because I’ve always imagined myself lifting things with my mind since I was a kid.

45. Do you believe in the supernatural?
Mmm, mainly in ghosts. I’ve had my personal experiences, plus I’ve always been fascinated with the subject since I was young. My family and I are actually contemplating whether we currently have a ghost in our house…

46. Would you rather be rich or famous?
Famous. I’ll admit that since I’m shy, I’ll occasionally crave attention like crazy. Plus, living in the US, I think I’d eventually make money from my fame.

47. Have you ever committed a crime?

48. Pirates or ninjas? Time Traveler or ghost?
Ghost! I’d love to scare people and This is the creeper side of me talking, excuse me…

49. Does someone have a crush on you?
Not that I know of. There was this guy on the bus who started talking to me last semester and he might have asked me out on a date .///.

50. Are you in a relationship?
Does imagining myself with Taemin count? LOL I’M KIDDING, I’M KIDDING. No I’m not, for lots of reasons. At this point in my life a relationship just seems more like a luxury: it’d be nice, but it’s not something I need.

Well hopefully this didn’t make me sound as narcissistic, or creepy, as I thought it did. Anyway, I had quite a lot of fun with this! It was a nice break from writing papers and other assignments. Speaking of which, I should probably take my leave to finish them. Thanks for reading, and until next time, guys~!

  1. Kyokai says:

    Aaah, Kuragehime, brings back so many good memories! This reminds me that I have to catch up on the manga soon. And I have added Michiko to Hitachin on my watch list because this series seems pretty fun.

    Awesome responses, Hoshi and no, they didn’t seem creepy at all! XD

    • Hoshi says:

      ~Yes you must! It’s gotten so good! And Mitchiko to Hatchin is a pretty fun series; I enjoyed it a lot.

      Thanks, hahaha!

  2. Tofu says:

    Hmm… Although for the tattoo’s I also wouldn’t want one, I’m thinking about it now that if I WAS to get one, I’d choose one of the more cool looking command seals from the Fate series on my hand ;D That’d be AWESOME!

  3. Namika says:

    A cat lover yaaaaaaay :3 I adore cats, they’re so good to cuddle .> Personally, I would love to get a tattoo and in fact, I’m thinking how to convince my dad not to panic about it 😀

    • Hoshi says:

      ~Yes, so cute, cuddly, and generally quiet (*´▽`*) I’ve had one and I just absolutely loved its company.

      Good luck with the tattoo! I know convincing parents will hard; I can’t even talk to my mom about it before she throws all these reasons not to in my face, lol.

      • Namika says:

        Yup. I have one now too ^w^ though he’s at that obnoxious age when you can’t cuddle it too much without getting scratched xDD But I’m willing to wait a little longer :3

        Well, my mom doesn’t really say anything, because I’m stubborn and she knows it. She isn’t against tattoos anyway. My dad is the problem. He’s not against tattoos too, but he may be against them on his daughter’s body >.>

  4. Shey says:

    “DEFINITELY PROCRASTINATING. It has gotten to a very bad point lately and I wish I could muster up a better work ethic…”

    Oh, I can so relate to this. I’m in my third and final year in college and I have hardly done anything in the past 2 months or so. I have failed to hand in numerous assignments and will have to start writing my BA thesis soon… But for some reason I can’t force myself to actually do something (except for writing emails to explain why I did not hand stuff in >.<). It's like hitting an inner blockade or something. But I feel like the tide is changing!

    GL with your papers and assignments Hoshi! I hope you will get everything done in time 🙂

    • Hoshi says:

      ~Exactly! I’m in my first year of college and I’m just so incredibly lazy with my assignments. It all started my last year of high school where I thought it didn’t matter since I knew where I was going anyway. My excuse was that I was saving my intense work energy for college, but so far NOPE *sob* Let’s hope the tide changes for both of us!

      Thank you~!! I’m trying my best! And good luck on your BA thesis!

  5. Yippy says:

    Koreaboo? Well, at least I learned a new word today. XD

    Nice post there, can’t wait for your posts on K-pop so I can find out what all the fuss is about. =)

    • Hoshi says:

      ~Yay for new words, hahaha xD

      Thanks~ I’ll probably try to write one to sum up the best in Kpop in the first half of 2012 ;D

  6. Overcooled says:

    Koreaboo is such a cute word. It sounds so much nicer than weeaboo. Maybe the Korean guy on the bus didn’t hear you? XD Let’s hope so.

    Michiko to Hatchin was a really good series!!! I’m so glad other people have watched it :3

    • Hoshi says:

      ~I know; it was so cute I didn’t think it had anything to do with being similar to weeaboo, hahaha.
      I HOPE SO *sob*

      It was! I was surprised I found hardly anything about it. I’m going to (hopefully) try to finish it during Spring Break |’D

  7. Rakuen says:

    Aw man, two people who don’t like sports anime here. It’s kind of a shame, because some of them aren’t super into the sport, the game is just a means of character development.

    No worries on being 18 and not being mature yet. I know people in their 30s who aren’t mature. You’ve still got plenty of time. XD

    • Hoshi says:

      ~Ahh, I understand. I’ve only actually read and liked one sports manga, Giant Killing, but I have yet to actually catch up from where I left off :s

      That’s good to know, hahaha! I don’t think I’ll ever become fully mature as my mother isn’t even that mature at 42. I think there’s just a certain time and place to be mature, and then times were you can completely let loose.

      • Rakuen says:

        Giant Killing is what got me into sports anime as well and it’s a perfect example of what I mean. Even if it’s futile, I’m still hoping for a second season of it!

  8. Hime says:

    Shinra and Celty all the way, Hoshi! Those two are such oddballs, but it works!

    And I sympathise with the dog hating. The family I live with has a dog that barks at everything, it’s god damn insufferable.

    Totally go for the tattoo! It doesn’t hurt nearly as much as everyone says.

    Great answers, and man your car sounds awesome xD <333

    • Hoshi says:

      ~It works because they’re both oddballs<3

      My aunt and cousins have said the same thing about getting a tattoo, that it doesn't hurt much, and they have really large, gorgeous ones on their arms xD Maybe in another two years I'll get one, hahaha.


  9. BlackBriar says:

    “DEFINITELY PROCRASTINATING. It has gotten to a very bad point lately and I wish I could muster up a better work ethic…”

    I understand how you feel. I tend to do that myself whenever I have something that I can put off until later. It’s become a troublesome habit. You have a ghost in your house? It better be friendly or I might have to recommend the Ghostbusters. LOL.

    If you somehow had the ability to manipulate an anime’s story, would you do it, which anime and in what way would you see fit? Would you put your favorite character or creature in a story where it doesn’t belong?

    • Hoshi says:

      ~YES, especially if the due date isn’t for another two weeks or so. I’ll neglect it to do it right up until the day before it’s due.

      LOL GHOSTBUSTERS. I think it is generally friendly. For some reason every time I imagine what the ghost is like, I get this image of some cute, moe boy who’s ridiculously shy |’D

      I actually wouldn’t, even if it was pretty bad or had a horrible ending. I feel like it was its destiny to end or go the way it did. I could never ruin that.

  10. anaaga says:

    TOGAINU NO CHI OH MY GOD IT WAS SUCH A LET DOWN. I’m so with you on that Hoshi!

  11. Karakuri says:

    Pfft ahaha I’d like to see someone try to make an anime of Hatoful.

    Oh man, I have major problems with procrastination as well.FIGHT HOSHI, FIGHT!

    • Hoshi says:

      ~I would so watch it, and not regret it.


  12. tatsuya says:

    what kind of question is this ??>>> “Do you have a tattoo?”
    ahh duhh ~~~
    and Teleportation and telekinesis!..maybe u can teleport to japan to buy some ramen …

    • Hoshi says:

      ~I’d be teleporting to Japan constantly for food and shopping xD

  13. Moni Chan says:

    TAEMIN !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! forever fangirling

    • Hoshi says:
