Rise’s Questions

(funny/inside joke thing) How’s it going?

I’ve been eating some great, home-cooked meals and rewatching Criminal Minds to fill the emptiness of my heart after watching the last season. Ugh, Reid and JJ. It would be interesting to see it adapted into an animé. Anyways, life’s been good, despite all the negativity that’s seen and read all over the news these days.

When did you first get into blogging?

The early years of university. I had an on-off relationship with blogging during that time. My first blog was horror-theme, where I posted short horror and thriller original stories. That died. During grad school, I started again with this, knowing better what I wanted to post.

If you could switch blogging schedules with any other blogger, who would you switch with?

Most of the bloggers I follow have a consistent blogging schedule. Or, they thought of a plan that works for them. I guess I would switch with the blogger that has a balance of consistency, happiness (if that’s the right term) and producing quality content. Or, y’ know, just one who still has great traffic despite not posting consistently. (¬‿¬)

Which do you prefer, the original material or adaptations of said story? (example: I prefer the live action of “The Antique” over the original manga.)

This is hard, haha. It varies. Some live adaptations are made incredibly well. I love the live adaptation of Death Note (2015), starring Masataka Kubota and Yamazaki Kento. SO. GOOD. I watched a previous one starring Toda Erika as Misa, but never got into it. So, I don’t have a preference. It boils down to how well each story element and/or production element was executed.

What would you do if you were transported in the last fictional world you watched/played?

The last game I played was ‘Another Eden: The Cat Beyond Time and Space.’ The main character could time travel to different eras. I would probably try to figure out how to travel to different worlds instead. And, y’ know, get the best of all worlds. Or, figure out an investment plan for each era, haha.

My Questions

If you could play any villain from any movie, book, manga, animé, etc., who would you play and why?

City or the countryside?

Thoughts on fanfiction?

If an Asian original (manga, drama, anime, etc.) were to have a Western adaptation (or vice versa), what would you like to see consistent or changed for whatever reason? (Ex. The US version of Death Note. The Korean version of Criminal Minds.)

Which fictional squad would you want to be a part of? (Ex. The golden trio from Harry Potter. Generation of Miracles from Kuroko no Basuke.)

Best Posts of Mine

All of dem. The Three Fates, The Good and Bad of Sports Animés, “Relationship” with Social Media

This took longer than I thought it would. But I had a lot of fun answering Rise’s questions and coming up with my own. Thanks again to Rise for getting me involved in this tag!

  1. It’s good to know that there’s at least one great anime live-action adaptation floating around the ether. I had the urge to re-watch Death Note a while back, maybe I’ll just watch the 2015 film (=
    Thank you for the nomination! Sorry I’m seeing this so late, my notifications are kind of wonky.

  2. I’m glad that despite the rather odd circumstances, that you’re doing well! Criminal Minds is about the only American TV show I really enjoyed so I’m glad you’ve been watching it!!
