liebster

I want to thank krystallina from her blog Daiyamanga. I seriously recommend checking out her blog. Thank you for nominating me ^_^

The Rules:

1. Thank and link back to your nominator.

2. Answer the 11 questions given by the nominator.

3. Nominate 5-11 other bloggers who have less than 200 followers.

4. Create 11 new questions for your nominees.

5. Let your nominees know that you have nominated them via social media or their blogs.

Questions from krystalinna:

01. Have you ever watched any J-dramas?

No, I have not seen any J-Dramas.

02. Name an author or mangaka who you consider a legend.

I would choose either Akira Toriyama, the creator of the Dragon Ball series, or Eiichiro Oda, the creator of One Piece.

03. Do you prefer physical media or digital?

I pick both. I like digital because it is fast and simple, but I also like physical so I can feel it and it may have exclusive stuff not available for digital.

04. Are you more likely to be the boke (funny man) or tsukkomi (straight man)?

I feel like I am more close to a tsukkomi.

05. Is there an anime or manga that made you laugh for all the wrong reasons?

I think I laughed when Yamcha got killed by the Saibaman from Dragon Ball Z and was easily defeated by the Androids. I blame TFS abridged Lol

06. Name a series where the original manga is better than the anime.

I would pick the Hellsing manga. I never actually read the manga, but I heard that the Ultimate series and the manga are close to each other as opposed to the classic version.

07. Now name a series where the anime is better than the original manga.

I would choose One Piece. The ocean is vast and exploring places and meeting people is an adventure. The fillers they add in the show doesn’t bother me too much.

08. Do you play visual novels?

I have played visual novels. I played the first Narcissu and played a little bit of If My Heart Had Wings.

09. What’s your favorite pie?

Pumpkin Pie

10. If you could appear on any game show or reality show, what would it be?

I would pick Wipeout.

11. Name a character whom you would NOT want to be on your team in a game show.

If the game show involves water and knowledge, I would not choose Monkey D. Luffy. He can’t swim or intelligent.

ISIS-Chan!

Here is the news with ISIS and the world from ANN:

“Ever since the Sunni rebel group, the Islamic State (also known as ISIS, ISIL, or Da’esh) took control of much of northern Iraq in the summer of 2014, Western governments and neighboring countries have puzzled over how to fight it. Should they go for a direct military intervention, or restrict their involvement to air strikes? Can other local rebel groups be trusted to put up a resistance? Can anything be done to hinder the spread of its radical Islamic ideology? While Japan has played a limited role in these discussions, Japanese members of the international hacker group Anonymous have a very Japanese idea: turn the image of the Islamic State from a terrifying rebel group into a harmless teenage girl. ” -from Anime News Network

 

This 19-year old girl clad in her burqa is named ISIS-Chan and she uses her knife to cut her favorite food melons. She was created a Japanese hacker who works with the organization Anonymous. Anonymous are encouraging people to draw ISIS-Chan and share them around the world as a way to ridicule the ISIS group according to Twitter user @Genknoxx. The user also mentions that this is the way to “de-fang ISIS”. What do you think of ISIS-Chan? Will it be effective or bust? Will it be better or worse?
