(It Happened Again) The Sunshine Blogger Award: Part 2

Banagher_Links_Pilot_Suit_Face

Hello everybody.  It’s been quite a short amount of time since I have nominated for any sort of award post, so here is another one.  It’s a repeat of the last one, but I think it’s worth doing again.  Sunshine Blogger Awards have an infinite amount of re-blog value because the questions coming from one blogger are not going to be the same as any other.

The blogger that nominated me for this award is Cauthan from Cauthan Reviews.  He has a wide variety of content from a lot of episodic Flip Flapper posts, new anime series reviews, discussion pieces about new about series, and some older reviews as well.  If you haven’t given his blog a look yet, please do.

Rules:
-Thank the person who nominated you in a blog post and link back to their blog.
-Answer the 11 questions sent by the person who nominated you.
-Nominate 11 new blogs to recieve the award and write 11 new questions.
-List the rules and display the Sunshine Blogger Award Logo in your post and/or on your blog.

Answers to Cauthan’s Questions:

sousouke-sagara

1) What show or movie are you most looking forward to next seeing?

ACCA produced by Madhouse this coming winter.  I think that Madhouse has a continuous cycle of on and off years and I think this is the start of Madhouse’s on year.  I want to see what they do.

2) Has there ever been a show that you initially disliked upon seeing it the first time however ended up enjoying it the second time around?

Soul Eater.  I have a review about this.

3) What’s your favorite underrated anime?  What show deserves far more recognition than it currenty has?

Soukou no Strain.  It’s a mech show that doesn’t have that much attention.  Yes the majority of it is a female cast and there are some fanservice scenes, but what happens in the show is fantastic.  Also, how many other series have close to real life Faster than light mechanics in them?  It’s eleven episodes, but it blew away my expectations when I first watched it.

4) Do you have a favorite actor, voice actor, or seiyuu.

Steve Blum and Crispin Freeman.  I can’t choose between them, so there you go.

5) You’re dreadfully thirsty – what’s your perfect thirst quencher?

Water, low sugar Gatorade, or Vitamin water zero.  Ever since last year, I have been cutting more and more sugar drinks off, so I try to keep to these three things and milk and orange juice.  Boring answer, but it’s the truth.

6) What’s your favorite opening (OP) or Ending (ED) sequence in anime?

Rise from Ghost in the Shell: Stand Alone Complex 2nd Gig

7) Who or what is your favorite antagonist?

Hakumen no Mono from Ushio and Tora.  I wrote an entire post on my 30 day anime challenge dedicated to this monster.

8) What’s a key feature of a show that you look for to determine whether you like it or not?

World building and interesting characters.  I should have a blog post about this in the near future.

9) What is one thing you wish you could change about your favorite show or move?

I’m going to cheat with this one and go with my favorite tv show Babylon 5.  I wish the first season wasn’t just setting up the plot devices and that the fifth season never existed.

10) What was your favorite anime that aired this year (2016)?

I rattled my brain on this for a long time.  After many hours of debate, it would be Shouwa Genroku Rakugo Shinju.

11) What are you looking forward to in 2017?

A lot of things.  I’m looking forward to pushing this blog along a little more, going back to school, working a little more, watching some cool movies, and watching more anime.  I hope it’s a good year.

Now for the 11 victims.  Muahahahahaha.

    Great answers. Though the next season is looking a little dry, I too am a little excited for ACCA. I still can’t figure out the first thing about it but what I’ve seen looks promising and as you say – you’ve got to be on the lookout for Madhouse.

    I know effectively nothing about Ushio to Tora but Hakumen no Mono looks awesome. Wooo, Shouwa Genroku Rakugo Shinju. Really looking forward to the next season in a few weeks. Cheers!

    Congrats, and thanks so much for the nomination! I already did this one pretty recently and will pass this time, but I really appreciate it. Looking forward to your world building and character post–I think character is #1 on my list, and world building would be up there too. /collapses suddenly; darn that Death Note

      Thank you and you are welcome. Curses, I forgot to check if people have done this one before choosing people. Oh well, don’t worry about doing this one.

      That post will appear in a week or two. I’m going to be headed out of town for vacation soon, so I doubt I will have time to write it until I return. I will at least have it plotted out in my head by then though.
