Lita Kino Anime Reviews & The Anime Analyst Nominated Me For The WakuWafu Award!

Ah, that was a long title.

Hey everyone!

I want to say thank you to Lita Kino Anime Reviews and The Anime Analyst for nominating me for this award. Lita’s blog has introduced me to quite a few series (all which were great) and The Anime Analyst has also reviewed great series and talks about all things anime on his blog, so definitely check them both out!

Rules

  • Thank the person who has nominated you and provide a link to their blog.
  • Choose any 3 things you would like to say about yourself to your fellow bloggers.
  • Think up 3 questions you would like to ask the people you nominate.
  • Give one piece of advice to your fellow bloggers.
  • Make sure to tell us over here that you have been nominated (and/ or completed the award) so that we can put your blog up on the WakuWafu page! Make sure to put down your blog in the comments section!anime-wave                                                        Questions 
    1. Why did you start blogging?
      I don’t have that many friends that have the same interests as me and really wanted to connect with people that did! I also had a lot to say and rant about concerning University, adulthood and whatnot and figured this would be a great place to share it.
    2. If you were making a time capsule, what anime would you preserve for the people who opened it?
      Pokemon. Everyone needs Pokemon in their life no matter the year; though, this doesn’t seem like it’s going to be an issue anytime soon. #AshIsImmortal
    3. Where would you go if you could be anywhere in existence?
      Somewhere that gets nice and cold during the fall/winter and stays cool in the summer. I’m not picky so somewhere up north, Florida’s heat will be the death of me 😦tumblr_n5ne0dvxkO1qfxxzto2_500
       Three Things To Know About Me
      1. I live in Florida but go to the beach about once a year…and when I do go it’s usually at night for a bonfire or something x)2. I despise horror films. Anything that’s scary in the least bit is a no-no for me, yet for some reason I love horror anime; it’s very strange.

      3. I’ve recently become obsessed with crafting and now have a growing collection of resin charms with cute stickers in them.   giphy My Piece of Advice
      It’s okay to not go the traditional or “safe” route. If something makes you happy and you’re passionate about it, pursue it; sometimes it’s the passion that gets you there, not the certificates and degrees.

The Anime Analyst Nominated Me For The Real Neat Blogger Award!

Hey everyone!

Zaktaku from The Anime Analyst was kind enough to nominate me for this award, so thank you! I really appreciate it 🙂 real-neat-blog-award

The Rules

  • Put the award logo on your blog
  • Answer the 7 questions asked by the person who nominated you
  • Thank the person who nominated you, link to their blogs
  • Nominate any number of bloggers you like, link to their blogs
  • Let them know you nominated them
  • Ask the bloggers 7 new questions

    Questions

    1. You are trapped on a tropical island, and must make it to land. Which 5 anime characters would be stranded with you to help?
      Oh god, okay, so Armin from AOT, because he’s smart as hell, Sai from Naruto Shippuden because he could just draw us a bird to leave with Armin’s said plan, Yukine from Noragami because he’s comedic relief for everyone, Brock from Pokemon because he’s somehow able to make delicious food appear out of no where, and Roy Mustang from Fullmetal Alchemist to lead everyone and make fires for us.
    2. What is your absolute favorite anime, and why?
      This honestly changes all the time, but overall I’d say Fullmetal Alchemist: Brotherhood. The characters are fleshed out, the plot is incredibly interesting and keeps you wanting more, and the overall concept is just intriguing to me lol.
    3. If you went to sleep, and when you woke up, found yourself in an anime, which anime would you be in? Which anime would you NOT want to be in?
      Uhh…I’d probably want to wake up in Nagi no Asukara, I love the water and being able to live half in the sea and half on land would be pretty cool. Hibernating for ten years…not so much, but you win some and you lose some, right? I’d definitely NOT want to wake up in Attack on Titan, hell no. The idea seems cool and all but I’d be titan food in like 30 seconds.
    4. What is your absolute dream job?
      Dream job would probably be working as an ALT in Japan. I love teaching and I think my personality suits it really well, and I love Japanese culture sooo, win-win.
    5. You and your arch rival are to duel to the death tomorrow. What weapon will you use in your fight? Can be from any media.
      I’d bring a sword because I have tiny arms so I wouldn’t have to worry about that, plus swords seem to get things done pretty efficiently so it seems promising.
    6. Which real life person would you want to see in an anime?
      Me, I want to see me in an anime. xD
    7. If your life was an anime, what genre would you want it to be?
      Oh god, probably supernatural/slice of life. So I could gracefully run to school with toast in my mouth and potentially fight off some demons or something too. They’ll call me the all-seeing toast girl.

Kuro Sama Reviews Nominated Me For the Infinity Dreams Award!

Hey everyone!

I first want to say thank you to Kuro Sama Reviews for nominating me! She is a new blogger but does some incredible reviews for all your anime, movie, and TV show needs! I can tell she definitely loves blogging, so make sure to check her out!

infinityLe Rulz

•List seven dreams. (They can be personal or website related.)

•Nominate seven other bloggers for this award and notify them.


  1. Successfully budget my money and time for the next year and a half to do study abroad in Japan.
  2. Travel! I want to see everything I’ve spent hours awe-ing over online and experience them in person.
  3. Post more to my blog. Lately I’ve been doing weekly posts because of school, but I’d love to post three times a week.
  4. Appreciate the learning process of art. I’m so hung up on “finding my style” that it makes me not want to pick up a pencil at all. I have to accept the process!
  5. Rack up the courage to find a language exchange partner. There are so many sites to do this but I feel like I’d be really awkward and shy.
  6. Watch the northern lights. I’ve always wanted to see them, I feel like the perfect spot would be just chilling on a mountain top or something haha.
  7. Turn my “wordpress.com” to a “.com” one day. I’d love to have my own website and have the coolest nerdy community on it 🙂

    Since I have done this award and nominated others before, and am also out of people I follow that haven’t done it, I want to say a big thank you again to Kuro Sama for nominating me! I have another award post coming soon and am thinking of starting the 30 day anime challenge, so stay tuned!

The Anime Analyst Nominated me for the Creative Blogger Award!

Hello everybody!

creative

First off, thank you Zaktaku from The Anime Analyst for nominating me for Creative Blogger Award! He’s definitely a creative blogger and does some really in depth anime reviews and pretty much all topics under the anime umbrella. So, thank you again for the nomination! Lets get into the rules 🙂

Rules

  • Thank the person who nominated you and include a link to their blog.
  • Share 5 facts about yourself.
  • Nominate 15 – 20 bloggers and add their links.
  • Notify the bloggers you included.
  • Keep the rules in your post to make it easy for everyone to know what to do!Facts About Meh

    1. When I was about five or so, I used to pack myself sandwiches in the morning and tell my mom I was going off on my Pokémon adventure. I’d end up coming back hours later with the disappointing news that I never found any Pokémon. xD
    2. I’m basically a White mutt (Hungarian, Italian, German, Irish) but everyone outside of my family assumes I’m Hispanic for some reason. I feel terrible when someone is asking me something but I can’t understand Spanish D:
    3. When I was in the fifth grade I had a cute little beta fish that my little sister would feed for me while I was at school. One day I came home and my fish had literally exploded, the reason? My sister decided my two inch beta fish needed the whole bottle of fish food to survive that day. RIP Cloudy.
    4. I love watching drag races at the track, I even spent this year’s Valentine’s Day watching muscle cars going 200mph down a quarter mile strip.
    5. I have this problem of binge-watching anime on Netflix. The sad part is Netflix doesn’t even have that many great anime titles to chose from, but do I care? Nope. I just watch away, because even if it’s terrible my curiosity gets the best of me.

    Nominations

    I’m not sure I’ll be able to get 15 without nominating someone who has already been nominated, but I’ll do my best.

Update: I originally had 8 on here but they had been nominated already and did their post….I tried.

Jiraiyan Nominated Me for the Infinity Dream Award!

Hey everyone!

Jiraiyan from Otaku Orbit nominated me for the Infinity Dream Award, where I am to list seven dreams/goals and then nominate seven blogs to participate. I thought this came at just the right time because the Fall semester of University just started and I am seriously struggling when it comes to choosing between following a dream or pursuing a path of “security.” I think writing down your true intentions and wishes makes them real to someone who is having a hard time, and makes the decision just a bit easier. So with that said, thank you, Jiraiyan, for this nomination!

  1. Teach English abroad through the JET Program- This is something that would incorporate both my love for teaching and Japanese culture by placing me in a rural town as an assistant language teacher at public schools.
  2. Study abroad at Kansai Gaidai- My school has an exchange set up with Kansai Gaidai, which is located in Hirakata, Japan. My goal is to study for a semester Spring 2017, but that means I need to start saving right now!
  3. Be more of an early riser.
  4. Take my art seriously and work on it bit by bit everyday instead of once a week.
  5. Become licensed to teach at the secondary level for Social Science. Teachers get a bad rep but I have wanted to teach since I was a little girl and plan to at least get licensed so that I could pursue it if I wanted to.

  6. Improve my Photoshop and Illustration skills to be able to create great digital images, or be able to freelance in Graphic Design.
  7. Successfully craft using resin and other materials. I have just gotten into resin crafting recently and enjoy it so much. My pieces don’t look like masterpieces by any means, but I don’t want that to discourage me from continuing to practice.Any dream is obtainable if the work is put in over time; Rome was not built in a day! I am not doing a formal nomination, because I feel like this is something that could help anyone, even if they think they have everything figured out. So if you’re reading this and feel drawn to doing it, I nominate you!

Wanimu Nominated Me for the Liebster Award!

liebster

Hey everyone!

So today I saw that Wanimu had nominated me for the Liebster Award! This is to help smaller blogs out and help people discover new ones, so thank you, Wanimu! Lez’ do this.

Here are the rules:
rules

Eleven questions to answer:

  1. What’s the anime you always go back to when you don’t feel like watching something new?
    Recently it’s been Noragami…I’ve probably watched it a good five times all the way through now, haha.
  2. Do you like to watch airing series or do you prefer to wait until it’s finished to start watching something?
    Due to the fact that I’m slow, I usually find out about a series halfway through or when it’s almost over, but I’d prefer while it’s airing so I can post in forums and whatnot :3.
  3. What’s your relationship with MOBAs?
    Our relationship is nonexistent unfortunately 😦
  4. What was the first series that made you say I love anime?
    Ohhh, this one’s tough. I didn’t really understand that anime was something “different” until I was in the 5th grade and by then I was already obsessed with DBZ, Sailor Moon, and Card Captors. But I guess the show that really made me feel that way and I was aware of anime being a bit different was Naruto. I lived for Naruto back in the day haha, I swore I was going to be a ninja xD.
  5. What was the first manga you bought?
    Naruto! Waldenbooks would have a “sale” that was buy 5 and get the 6th free and that’s when my crazy Naruto manga hoarding days started.
  6. What’s your favourite song at the moment?
    Deceivers by I Prevail. My favorite part of it is the last two minutes though.
  7. Do you let the opening and ending songs play or you prefer to skip them?
    I’ll play them through for the first few episodes to see if I like them or not, if I like them I’ll continue to play through but if not I’ll skip. I’ll skip if there was a huge cliffhanger as well x)
  8. Your favourite video game of all time?
    Super Smash Bros Melee. That game is so nostalgic for me, I’d play it all the time with my family and would laugh in their face after they told me Kirby was useless and I would destroy them with him haha. I’ll buy the Pokémon games till I die too; sitting in a rocking chair at 80 with some kind of hand held gaming device seems pretty chill.
  9. Favourite children story?
    This is a good question come to think of it…I never really paid attention to them really, then I got obsessed with Naruto so that kind of became my children story haha. Maybe one of the Disney ones like Little Mermaid or something, even though the real story of that is dark lol
  10. Least favourite anime genre?
    Hentai/ecchi, something in that related field. Real awkward when you’re reading online and a family member walks behind you and is just like EHHHH?? hahaha, though I won’t lie, Prison School has me laughing my ass off right now.Don’t you think I’m the most awesome person on the internet and that I should rule the world?
    I’ll only say you can rule the world if you build a magical rainbow through the lands that translates manga and anime automatically because I hate waiting :3

Eleven Random Facts About me:

  1. I’ve never lived anywhere else but Florida, aka the place whose theaters never get subbed anime.
  2. I stopped growing in the 7th grade, and will forever be 5’1″ 😦
  3. I’ve changed my major in college 5 times now.
  4. I’m studying abroad in Japan in the Spring of 2017.
  5. A dog bit me in the face and flung me a good distance when I was 2 and I still have the scar. People mistake it as a dimple a lot; also the reason for my slight fear in animals.
  6. I am obsessed with keeping my car cleaned, but my room always looks like a war zone.
  7. When I was 5 I thought Pokémon were real and just lived in another country, and I would leave the house with sandwiches telling my mom I was on my way to be a Pokémon master.
  8. My favorite movies as a kid were Kiki’s Delivery Service and Spirited Away, and now that I know Spirited Away is based on the prostitution scene in Japan, my childhood self is crying.
  9. It’s not a stated tradition but every time my sister comes to visit we end up watching a whole series/ season of an anime. We start at like 8 at night till morning.
  10. I want to attend my first Artist Alley next spring if I can pull everything together by then.
  11. My close friends’ nickname for me is “Hokage Lex” hahaha.Blogs That are Deserving of the Award
