50 things you didn’t know about me

and now will know. Kyo Year II Special 1/3

It’s all Acerailgun fault but I thought it a good way to reveal some facts. I’ve become too mysterious lately and this won’t of course lessen any such myth but hey, at least for the current reality, this should work. :3 It’s been such a long time that I did any list so read on or I should say, laugh on… Also, I just realized that it’s White Day, so for doubling the flavour, this is something-special for my awesome readers (whichever gender) of Metanorn.

1. Who is your favorite male anime character?

This is a hard one because I don’t like choosing between favourites but there are too many! So, I’ll do with my top three as Kenshin, Gintoki and Kyon. They have the characteristics that are noble, heroic and comedic. However, at the same time they are pretty normal (Kyon even more so than the other two). I like how they coped through all the situations in their life in total calmness rather than being stressed about it; the thing that is common between them is the ability to persevere. I really admire that.

2. Who is your favorite female character?

Ryougi Shiki. There are many other female characters like Senjougahara, Seras, Kusanagi, Sawako and Chihaya, who I admire but no one would come close to how much I like Shiki. Her characteristic to remain aloof yet ever observing, empty yet full to the brim, the constant resistance towards life in her own way is something that you don’t find in many characters. She’s called Kuudere for a reason and I love her complexity. Discovering her while watching all the Kara no Kyoukai movies has been an absolute treat.

3. What is your favorite anime soundtrack?

First and foremost Kara no Kyoukai soundtracks that are bombshells composed by Yuki Kajiura. Recent favourites include Ao no Exorcist, Kamisama no Memochou and Guilty Crown Soundtracks.

4. What is your favorite anime opening + animation?

Higashi no Eden’s “Falling Down” by Oasis: One of the best animated openings, perfect for the series.

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

I have a severe attachment to Bakemonogatari’s Kimi no Shiranai Monogatari and DAT twelfth episode.

6. What is your favorite anime scene?

This is a very hard choice but as I’m on a roll for Kara no Kyoukai, I have to choose the Tomoe scene from the fifth movie. Show ▼

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

Great Teacher Onizuka or Gintoki. They are hilarious and amazing individuals. Being jack of all trade also helps.

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

There’s no perfect match but I’m a mixture of Shiki (Kara no Kyoukai), Chihaya (Chihayafuru) and Rin (Fate/stay night). I know a hard combination to put your mind around it but that is how it is.

9. What is your favorite thing about anime?

The creativity of 2D itself. You can do so much and without any boundaries. It’s visually stimulating and really gives your mind a run for its money. One of the best escapisms and at times even better than Hollywood movies; my choice of contribution speaks louder than words after all.

10. What is your least favorite thing about anime?

Misconstrued concept of otakuism. I know there are people who fit into the couch potato, hikikomori mold but just because a stereotype exists doesn’t mean EVERYONE IS LIKE THAT. I’m not into lolis, neither I have pedo-bearish tendencies. I watch anime because I like it but yeah, this is a long argument and you can’t make everyone happy. So, if you ever come across a person who disses the fandom, ignore them and move on.

11. Who are your favorite anime couple?

Do you even have to ask?! Shiki and Mikiya.

12. Who is your favorite anime animal?

Nyanko-sensei, I even like his Madara version; though the former is huggly-wuggly.

13. What anime would make a good game?

Shiki. KILL THE HUMANS and score points!

14. What game would make a good anime?

I haven’t played many games to qualify for this question but an easy pick would be Mahou Tsukai no Yoru. I know, I’m hopeless.

15. What was the first anime you ever watched?

Truth be told, it was Pokemon.

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

No way.

17. What is your favorite genre of anime?

Currently, I can watch almost anything but on preference level: Mystery, Horror, Fantasy, Sci-fi, Comedy, Josei, Shoujo and Slice of Life.

18. What is your least favorite genre of anime?

Ecchi and unrealistic slice of life is a pain too.

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

Yes. Everyone who is close to me knows my addiction, from parents to relatives and friends.

20. Have you ever been to Japan?

No, but hopefully I will some day.

21. What anime was the biggest let down for you?

Darker than Black season two. Ugh.

22. What anime was better than expected?

Tatami Galaxy. I had no expectations at all but it surprised me, in a very good way.

23. What is the best anime fight scene?

In Evangelion Rebuild, when Asuka goes berserk and Shinji’s unit almost kills her. The raw power was just amazing, the machine blood helped too.

24. Who is your anime husbando?

Easily, Kokutou Mikiya.

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

Mortal Combat. I used to a do a duck trick and whenever the opponent would come near me, I would punch/combo them. Good times.

26. Most Embarrassing moment?

I nosedived in front of around 20 people because my heel broke. I was completely tip-top that day due to a major presentation at my uni. I think 10% of my 100% confidence was reduced while presenting my report due to it. ><

27a. Can you drive?

Yes, but occasionally.

27b. Do you own a car?


28. Are you mature?

Yes. More than my years.

29. What year were you born?

1983. Do the math.

30. Do you prefer cats or dogs?

Cats. I have a live example that you guys can see

31. Describe yourself physically.

Tall compared to Asian height, average weight, dark brown eyes and wavy hair. My best features are my eyes and my 1000 watt smile.

32. What would you name your first child?

Depending on their gender, will think up something with my better half. I am not that obsessed that I would scribble possible names in my diary right now.

33. What is the worst injury you have ever had?

I had a hair-line fracture that took two months to heal. Bed rest was no good for me.

34. What is your worst habit?

When I’m overly stressed, I bite the skin around my nails. Trying to get over that habit for some time now.

35. Do you drink or smoke?

Nope and never plan to. I once smoked though.

36. Do you have a tattoo?

Again, no and never plan to.

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

I just need 5-8 hours of sleep and I’m good as new. I prefer to be a night person but I can wake up early to stuff done as well.

38. Have you ever slept past midday?

Yes, usually on weekends/vacation time.

39. Do you regret anything?

Many things. This is how you learn, don’t you? You just can’t do everything perfectly. Experience comes from mistakes and personally I learn from them and try to be a better person.

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

No. But close friends, yes.

41. Do you wear glasses?

No, though I have an attraction towards megane-kuns.

42. Are you a picky eater?

Naah. I can eat food cold, just off the fridge. Unless it’s too spicy for my taste, I can gobble up almost anything; exception is pork and bitter gourd.

43. Would you die for someone?

Yes. For my loved ones. If I could do something to save them from harm’s way, I won’t think about my own life.

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

Time travel. I have a fascination with it since college days; I even ended up researching its theories for an article.

45. Do you believe in the supernatural?

Not the Paranormal Activity sort but the concept of djinns and mysterioous sources that can bend reality.

46. Would you rather be rich or famous?

Mildly rich would be great; everyone needs moneehhhs, you know! I don’t want to become snobbish after becoming famous.

47. Have you ever committed a crime?

Nope. I’m too goody-two-shoes to do anything outside the law.

48. Pirates or ninjas? Time Traveler or ghost?

Time traveler, hands down.

49. Does someone have a crush on you?

Yes. He stalks me regularly. It’s becoming a pain.

50. Are you in a relationship?

Not right now.

Did that reveal too much?! Alright, enough embarrassment from me! It’s your turn. Reply with your favourite top 5 questions from above and I DARE you to pick the worst ones (I’m still being nice in letting you chose), rather than the easy ones. And this was so not tl;dr… I swear. So, I hoped you enjoyed this totally off the cuff reverie.

    That kitty was so cuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuute~ *0* I wanna snuggle that snuggly-wuggly ball of fuuuuuuuur~ >O<

    • Kyokai says:

      I know right?! So, no one can blame me for going crazy over it and that video doesn’t even show you guys till how long I was after that kitty. Till I was there in my friends hope. It had moved up to my lap too. xD

  2. Foshizzel says:

    I have seen this post floating around in the blog world! I thought about doing mine and posting it on Tumblr haha really awesome!

    Good work Kyokai! And proud member of the 20+ club! We are not old but forever young anime fans xDD

    • Kyokai says:

      We are still young and 18 forever! *high five*

      Now getting this list from everyone would be awesome!

  3. BlackBriar says:

    Nice post. Now I get to know the boss lady of Metanorn a little better.

    I’ve become a fan of the Guilty Crown Soundtracks as well and even downloaded the second OP.
    The best thing about anime is the sweet escapism after a physically and mentally brutal day (Mainly where school is involved) and it’s so much better than Hollywood movies.
    Shiki as a game? If that ever becomes possible, let me know. I’ll definitely want to play. But for now, MORTAL KOMBAT!!!

    I know this will probably sound like silly fantasy questions: 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? LOL.

    • Kyokai says:

      Thanks, BB! :3

      I love ryo’s work and he has really done a good job on Guilty Crown singles, not to mention Sawano Hiroyuki for the soundtracks. I hope someone does make a Shiki game (would be so awesome!).

      About your questions, I would change the ending of Wolf’s Rain and Bokura ga Ita, these two series gave me lots of grief and I mean it when I say it. >< About the favourite characters bit, I think Gintama has already done some very successful crossovers and they actually appeared in Sket Dance too! However, something that not has been done in terms of characters chould go like this: - Sending Alucard into the Twilight world where he frightens every other vampire to bits and tells them that vampires are bloody creatures and they SHOULD NOT SPARKLE! - Trapping Kyuubey with Araya Souren, where Araya performs millions of experiments on him making it die over and over again. Yeah. - Sending Ayumu to Precure land and seeing him fare against the other mahou shoujo... Should be fun! I can go on but I think I should stop. :3

  4. Joojoobees says:

    I don’t like picking favorites or ranking things, but on the matter of cars: I had avoided getting a driver’s license for years, but I finally couldn’t do without when I moved to Tennessee. Living somewhere dominated by rural areas means you really need a car. I got rid of my car after moving back to a real city, though. I hate driving, I don’t even like riding in cars.

    • Kyokai says:

      I haven’t driven much to hate it but I avoid it myself. Too much responsibility! ><

  5. Alynn says:

    Always choose the time traveler option, yep, me too.

  6. The_Magus_Killer says:

    Kyokai, please make every writer/blogger of Metanorn do this. You all seem mysterious (in a good way, of course).

    “Tall compared to Asian height, average weight, dark brown eyes and wavy hair. My best features are my eyes and my 1000 watt smile.” – I like description of you the best. 100% Moe =)

  7. Hoshi says:

    ~TOTALLY LATE BUT…Congrats on completing two years, Kyokai!<3 Show ▼

    I remember you talking about Tatami Galaxy, and I managed to watch the first two episodes, and I LOVED them. Unfortunately I haven’t been able to see more episodes due to school and laziness.

    (I also second the motion that every writer on Metanorn should do these questions. I’ve already come up with some answers lol)

    • Kyokai says:

      Thanks, Hoshi-chan, for the awesome wishes! <333

      Through the years we have definitely shared lots of cool memories with the highlights in Kuragehime and Durarara!! My next post actually would talk about a bit of Tatami Galaxy but no worries there, catch it on your own time!

      Hopefully, we'll tag again on some shows and fangirl over at msn/skype! :3

  8. Cely_belly says:

    I love that anime ending! ^^ It’s nice to know a little more of the boss lady Kyokai!

  9. Tofu says:

    AHAHAHA awesome stuff ;D Well… if you you ever wish to find out my answers to these questions. It’s over at Sekijitsu ;D

    Time travel FTW~~!!! WOOT!!! xD

    • Kyokai says:

      Oh, I’m definitely going to visit SJ today. :3

      And moar power for the crazy time travelers!

  10. tatsuya says:

    man ..if u are a character of some anime ..i’m sure i will vote for u
    by the way, I also have a severe attachment to Bakemonogatari’s Kimi no Shiranai Monogatari..that make us bro’s .just kidding

    • Kyokai says:

      Lol! So, if I was ever auctioned off, you’ll bid the most?! xD

      Brofist for liking the supercell awesomeness. This is still my most favouriate track ever produced by ryo.

  11. Martin says:

    That was a really interesting read (out of laziness, rather than copy/pasting my answers I’ll just point out that I answered the 50 questions on my blog too!). I can’t remember hoe I stumbled on this blog, but I’ll stop by more often since you guys seem to update so regularly (unlike some of us… orz ).

    I’m glad to see I’m not the only fan of ‘that’ Bakemonogatari episode and one who wants a Mahoyo animated adaptation…the mention of the Eden of the East OP brought back some amusing memories for me though. All the anime bloggers were talking about this cool English band who did this great song for the show…at which point I showed my age by mentioning how the old stuff they did in the 90s was the soundtrack to my teens!

    Oh yeah, from one hardcore KnK fan to another: there’s a fan-translated English version of the entire novel posted online, so in case you haven’t heard about it yet I recommend you check it out.

    • Kyokai says:

      Another Type-Moon fan appears and my age too! Whenever I think, there are too less another one crops up. xD Thanks for dropping by!

      I guess we share a lot of similar taste and I was doing the same thing about Oasis myself when Eden of the East was airing! I was just sad when they weren’t repeated for second season.

      And I’ve already read the KnK novels from emptyboundaries, I even commented there for such a good job done by cokesakto. My next wish is for ufotable to animate Mirai Fukuin. ><

    i swear to god i could predict every single one of these, i share THE EXACT same tastes, 1 through to 17 are all shared answers. i disagree with 18 tho 😉 although you had a disturbed childhood if mortal kombat was your childhood game

    • Kyokai says:

      LOL! Return of the Dan-go! I’ve definitely become predictable in my Type-Moon love >< but high-five for same tastes! And I think Mortal Combat was the reason for me going all violent in my teens... :3

    It took me much longer than it should have to read this post for the simple reason that I was too distracted by the absolutely adorable picture of Shiki you used.

      • Myst says:
