I was nominated for this by Brother Yomu. As expected, he is wise to recognize and understand my uniqueness. I’m happy to receive this nomination.
- Display the award!
- Thank the person who nominated you, and post a link to their blog on your blog. (Try and include a little bit of promotion!)
- Answer the questions they’ve written for you!
- Nominate bloggers and give them three questions in the spirit of sharing love and solidarity within our blogging family!
What is your favourite anime that has made you cry?
Within me there exists a mental desire to remain stoic that is constantly at odds with a more emotional desire to be able to understand and express my inner feelings. I tend be more reserved until there’s a mental break and subsequent eruption of emotion. Anime is an outlet for me.
Anime and occasionally other live-action shows allow me to escape said reality, and hence that desire to be strong and stoic. This is to say, I feel things from them that I struggle to allow myself to feel otherwise.
As I’ve mentioned before, I’m a big fan of dramas because I like being punched in the soul (There may be a post about this coming in the near to distant future). I shed more than a couple tears watching Violet Evergarden. I liked A Place Further Than the Universe as well.
It doesn’t necessarily require a full-on drama to damage me internally, either. Made in Abyss sucker-punched me pretty hard.
Have you ever felt motivated by any specific anime? Which one and why?
Most sports series tend to motivate me at least a little bit. The most influential as of late, though, have been Yowamushi Pedal and Welcome to the Ballroom. In fact, I now semi-regularly compete in mountain bike races, and actually teach a little bit of ballroom dance.
More generally speaking, I still occasionally look to Dragon Ball Z for self-improvement motivation.
This one will probably result in either very simple or complex answers – why did you decide upon the username & blog name you chose?
Well, at the time the site and show were created, there were two of us who formed “The Weeabros”.
Having a podcast is like having a band; you have to prepare, record, etc. Sometimes things just don’t work out like you thought they would.
As you all should know by now, I don’t always play by the rules. I’m not nominating anyone because I haven’t been keeping track of who has done this already. If you want to and are waiting for a nomination, be my guest. Yomu’s questions will suffice.
