[January 2019 OWLS Blog Tour] One Piece – Luffy’s Painful Metaphosis Journey

Metamorphosis

A brand new year means new beginnings and opportunities. We have a tendency to embrace the new year because it’s a time when we can start fresh. For this month’s topic, we will be exploring our favorite dynamic characters who undergo changes for better or for worse. We will analyze these characters’ transformations and how these transformations benefited or minimized these characters’ potential in becoming “great people/beings.” We will also use these characters as a way for us to reflect on our own lives and who we want to become. Lastly, we would like to say “Happy New Year, everyone!”

Check out Aria’s blog here.

Real Neat Blog Award by Rocco

I want to thank Rocco from Secluded Observation for nominating me for the Real Neat Blog Award. Let’s get started on this award!

The rules of the award

  • Display the logo
  • Thank the blogger for the award
  • Answer the questions the one who has nominated you
  • Nominate 7-10 bloggers
  • Ask them 7 questions

7 Questions:

  • What helps you remain passionate about blogging?

The reason why I still like blogging is because it helps me share my voice and be expressive. If you met me in person, I am mostly collective and not very good at speaking what’s on my mind. However, whenever I get the chance to voice my opinions and show off my fun side, I want to write and show people that I am here and please listen. I like sharing my interests with others.

  • What is something you know now about blogging that you wished you knew when you began?

I wish I knew a bit earlier when started blogging the importance of writing and how can blogging can be a career. Back then, I treated this just a hobby and not having any goals. I was pretty hesitant on making this like a business.

  • If you could meet your favourite voice actor/actress who would it be?

I would like to meet two voice actors. I would love to meet Erika Harlacher. Erika does the voice for Kurapika in Hunter x Hunter and Violet from Violet Evergarden. I would love to geek out with her and talk about Kingdom Hearts. Another voice actor I would want to meet is Vic Mignogna. Vic is the voice of Broly in Dragon Ball, Edward Elric in Fullmetal Alchemist and Qrow in RWBY. This guy’s voice is legendary.

  • Would you like to get in to the animation/entertainment/videogame industry?. If so, is Shirobako or new game an inspiration for you to do so?. If not, then why did you decide to go in to said industry?

If possible, I would join one and be part of the blogging community. I would love to handle the blogs and keeping up with social media for the anime industry. I want to be able to respond and give fans information.

  • If you weren’t blogging, would you try something like a podcast or youtube?

I would probably do some YouTube on gaming. I probably won’t be livestreaming, but I would love to show off random video game gameplay of myself playing games.

  • If your favourite videogame/anime character came to life, how would you spend your time with them?

I would want Shinichi from the anime Outbreak Company to come to life. We would spend the day watching the anime and having debates on who is the best girl on any series.

  • What two anime/videogame world would you live in?

In video games, I want to go to the Chao Garden in the Sonic Adventure games. I want to go to a special place where chaos live peacefully and I can raise them.

Another world I want to go is Twilight Town from Kingdom Hearts. I want to eat sea-salt ice-cream on top of the clock tower.

As an added bonus, I want to live in the world of Dragon Ball, but I to experience Dragon Ball like the manga Dragon Ball: That Time I Reincarnated as Yamcha. Without spoiling the story, the story is about a student who accidentally dies and gets resurrected as Dragon Ball’s joke character Yamcha. Using his knowledge about Dragon Ball, the student decides to make Yamcha the strongest warrior in the series. If I was in Dragon Ball, I would like to become a character and make them stronger than a Saiyan.
