A while back, I was nominated by Keiko with the Real Neat Anime Blog Award. If you haven’t followed her already, you should, since she nominated me. I planned on writing about this the week I got the nomination, but I was too busy forgetting about it.

Anyways, here are my answers to the questions provided by Keiko! ( ^ ^ )
What’s your favourite genre of anime?
Hard to say. It definitely used to be slice of life, but after my long binge of non-anime shows (namely House M.D.) that were much less light-hearted, I find myself getting somewhat bored when watching SOL shows. That said, my two favorite anime of all time, Aria and K-On!, are both slice of life, so I still do like the genre.
Currently I’d go with mystery and thriller, since those are the genres that I’ve been hooked on recently. A good seasonal anime that have these two elements is ID;Invaded, which, if you haven’t checked out, you definitely should. Edy wrote a review about it here.
Is there an anime you wish you had watched last year but didn’t get the chance to?
Nooope. Unfortunately I have too much time that I watch everything.
If you could have any pet from an anime, what pet would you pick?
Nyanko-sensei without a doubt. He’s cute, chubby, fluffy, lazy, and perfect.
Do you prefer watching anime weekly as it comes out or binge watching it once it has finished airing?
Binge watching, because if it’s a good show, I want to watch it all at once. I never really understood the appeal of binge watching, and I’ve always found it difficult to keep track of various show’s plots every week for 3 months.
What anime from this season surprised you in its first episode?
I’d love to say ID;Invaded, but honestly it wasn’t good enough to be ‘surprising’. It’s a show that really got my interest after 3 or 4 episodes. Definitely don’t think that the first episode is bad, especially as much as what most people claimed it to be when the 40 minute special came out, but it isn’t too special either. No other show really impressed me this season, but I haven’t seen a couple of shows like Eizouken, which is supposedly really good.
Is there an anime you were looking forward to this season which left you underwhelmed after the first episode?
Not really since I didn’t have very high expectations going into this season, but if I had to choose it’d be Magia Record. Watching it made me realize once again how annoyed I feel that Shaft is wasting their effort and time on a show like Magia Record.
Is there an anime character that you feel is similar to you? If so, who?
Not really, but Konata eats ice cream the same way I do.
