Basic Questions for any Anime Fan

Silvachief over at The Geek Clinic asked me to answer some questions over at his blog. He also gave his own answers here. I like how these questions can be answered succinctly and with little effort. I consider them basic questions for any anime fan.

So what are the questions, you ask…?

Feel free to leave your own answers to these questions in the comments, by the way.

(Apparently, this is part of some blog event called “Inspector Green” or whatever, and I’m supposed to tag three bloggers who must answer the same questions. I nominate three young bloggers: Sir Calvin, Novasylum, and miharusshi. Here’s to a great year of blogging for you three!)

  1. I see what you did there >:)

  2. Thanks for the tag, frog-kun!

    Also, Slaine as best anime pet? Hidoi ne.

  3. I’m really embarrassed, but from which anime is the last pic? I feel like I know it, but it doesn’t occur to me… Gomen nasai, frog-kun!!!

  4. The German Maverick

    1. When was the last time you went to a store containing anime?

    unfortunately, in my country there isn’t any store (At least that I know) that have any type of anime content.

    2. Do you usually watch anime online? On what website?

    Nope, never. I download it always, at first from latin fansubs but now I download it from HorribleSubs torrent page.

    3. First Japanese word you learned from an anime?

    I guess it would be… Ohayo (I guess that’s how is written), I like scholastic anime.

    4. Best animation style in your opinion?

    Aniplex/Ufotable (Fate/Zero)

    5. Best anime pet?

    I don’t know which character could be actually considered a pet, but Slaine!? poor Slaine, PD: Still haven’t watched the 1st chapter of 2nd season.

    6. What is the longest anime you’ve ever watched?

    InuYasha, still lovin’ it.

    7. What is the shortest anime you’ve ever watched?

    Zankyou no Terror (Just 10 Episodes, still awesome)

    8. What is your favorite anime couple?

    Sorata x Mashiro
    Kinji x Riko (Hidan no Aria)
    Okabe Rintarou x Makise Kurisu (Steins;Gate)

    :) Guess those are basically my answers.

    • I’m really dumb but… what do you mean by “scholastic” anime?

      • The German Maverick

        Hmm… guess it’s only called that way in this side of the world, or maybe I just chose the wrong word.

        Well, in spanish the actual word is: “Escolar” what we mean with that word is a genre of anime in which the plot is developed in school or the school plays an important roll in the storyboard.

        Oregairu
        Hidan no Aria
        Amagami
        Angel Beats
        Baka to Test to Shoukanjuu
        Clannad…

        Hope that’s enough for reference :)
        Perhaps in English that anime genre is called in a different way, I wasn’t sure so I translated the word from spanish literally.

        And about the word… I guess that it was the first word I learned because most animes that includes than genre starts with the MC walking with his friends to school or something like that and that’s the first thing you hear.

        • Ahh, I get what it means now. Usually, I see anime set in a school referred to as “school-based anime”.

          Cool Spanish lesson! Your username made me think your first language was German, not Spanish, though :P

    … Why haven’t you asked which character does the reader hate most?

    • “Why haven’t you asked which character does the reader hate most?”

  15. FROG WHAT IS THIS WHAT ARE YOU DOING WORST POST EVER

  16. 1. Maybe, six month. I have to go over 1000 kilometres to enter one.
    2. NEVER.
    3. I don’t longer remember…
    4. The one is shiny (XEBEC in Fafner Exodus is the shiniest).
    5. Hakuryuu (Gensomaden Saiyuki)
    6. I think it was Ranma o Sailor Moon or… some of them.
    7. Aside OVAs and movies, I think it is Saint Beasts (6 episodes)
    8. Scroll down in here (it is not updated, but well)

  17. 1. A few months ago. Not dedicated solely to Anime though.
    2.No. Netflix, Hulu, or Crunchyroll mostly.
    3.Demo
    4.I like a lot of stuff Shaft puts out.
    5.Not sure…Guts from Kill La Kill perhaps.
    6.FMA Brotherhood. I am not a long form fan.
    7. Zankyou no Terror
    8.Ryuji and Taiga or Araragi and Senjogahara

  18. Just putting this out there….. Avatar: The Last Airbender is NOT an anime. I adore that series with all my heart but ‘anime’ is Japanese Animation. Avatar was produced, written, directed and animated in America by Nickelodeon. I know a lot of people who think it is and understandably so since they did take on the anime style when creating the show, but it’s not anime.
