Day 2 - Favorite Anime You’ve watched so far
This is probably gonna be one of the hardest ones of this whole meme - I've seen a
hell of a lot of amazing animes over my sixteen years, and there are a few that stand
out: Highschool of the Dead, Hellsing, Ergo Proxy, Bleach and Gilgamesh... but, there
is one that stands out above the rest.
Fullmetal Alchemist Brotherhood is THE best anime have ever watched, without a
doubt. Obviously, it stems from one of the most ingenius mangas ever to be created,
and it sticks faithfully to the plot, not cutting out any of the characters (like the
first, original series did). The animation is gorgeous, with clean lines and great
fight scenes - all the scenes are beautiful, and the character design is reliable and
attractive too... plus the men are hawt. The opening and closing themes are
bloody fantastic, with one of my favourite bands, SID, singing E1 and O4. But, above
all, the plot is what drives the series. It makes you cry, makes you laugh, it makes
you yell out at the screen, or hold your breath with anticipation, or punch the air
in delight during that final fight scene. You really grow to love and understand the
characters. It also includes one of the saddest character deaths in the history of
anime... and fans of the series will know of the one I speak of. If you haven't seen
it, I thouroughly recommend it.
Day 3 - Your Anime crush
This is difficult, because there are a hell of a lot of possibilites for this
category, so it's a very hard choice. But, one of my oldest anime crushes would
probably have to be Roy Mustang, from Fullmetal Alchemist.
He's the chief supporting character in the series, a Colonel in the State Military,
specialized in Flame Alchemy... and he's just SO COOL. You really do sympathise with
him and his dreams for a fairer country, and then when a certain tragedy occurs
towards at the end of the series... will, you can't help but die a little inside. But
seeing as he does get cured, it's all good. 8D Though he is supremely hot, I ship him
with Riza, so... yeah, there you go.
I also love Ling Yao and Jean Havoc from the same series. And also Gin
Ichimaru and Urahara Kisuke from Bleach. Just because.
