09 -- name an anime character you absolutely hate.

Oh, this one is easy.

Relena Peacecraft.

Why? Because she hits the ground running as a selfish, self-absorbed little brat -- and at no point does this actually change -- whose best moment was mercifully fucking off from the plot for a while so things other than her screaming at Heero to kill Zechs for the "honour" of a fucking family she never knew existed, let alone that she was a part of, scant days earlier, could actually goddamn happen.

That last point is made all the more galling by the fact that Relena does indeed disappear out of fight for entire central multiple sub-arcs of Wing after that last event, during which actual *le gasp!* reasonably believable plot unfolds (the foxing of the colonies into "peace" as controlled by OZ, etc etc) ... and then. And then.

And then the aggravating little piker resurfaces, suddenly and miraculously the head of a resurrected pocket-kingdom, and is a figure revered across~ the globe~ and beyond~

We never see this restoration.

We never see a single god damn reason why Relena is immediately and unconditionally held in such esteem.

We never see one god damn iota of justification for any of this bullshit. We simply have to accept it, because ~*it's Relena Peacecraft*~.

Who then proceeds to derail what was very nearly an excellent political war story, despite its shaky start, because the entire narrative and cast of characters deforms to revolve around her. For no reason. Oh, and she's happy to let men die literally on her border, and she never seems to protect her own populace, etc etc ... but she's somehow perfect and her ideals unchallengeable.

(while I'm at it: since when were these her ideals? we never see anything of the sort come out of her mouth before this! she was too busy stalking Une to revenge-kill the woman, and wanting Zechs dead! I can only conclude Noin brainwashed her off-screen.)

Fuck. That.

08 -- who is your favorite anime character?

... There sure is a hell of a lot of annoying absolutism in this damn meme.

I don't have one. I'm never going to have one. Hell I can't even choose one favorite character from most series let alone some horse manure like "favorite anime character".

*thinks*

Fafner: Kouyou.

There. There's a favorite character where the screaming hells are my Kouyou icons

07 - have you ever watched an entire anime in one sitting?

Prone as I am to more lengthy series on top of unpredictable and sometimes insane work schedules, this doesn't happen all that often.

That said, I'm pretty sure that [personal profile] kalloway and myself blitzed through all of Star Driver in one go or at the very least in one day, lol ~

Also, Gin'iro no Olynssis was one short one that, iirc, I stuffed into my skull in one long workshift that time.

... what.

Kingdom Hearts III has less Disney worlds than Kingdom Hearts II; Final Fantasy VII Remake further along in some areas

"The Toy Story world is set after Toy Story 2. It isn’t a parallel world. Rather, the events of Kindgom Hearts III are part of the Toy Story time axis. (In other words, it is canon.)"

"While it is not shown in the trailer, at the start Sora is mistaken for a character in the latest game to be released in this world."

...

...

As neatly summarized by a helpful goon on Something Awful:

"So the Toy Story universe exists within the Kingdom Hearts universe but Kingdom Hearts is a game in the Toy Story universe. And it's also canon.

Ok Nomura"

Give me a character (or more than one, lol) and I'll tell you:

• what they'd do if they had a kitten in their shorts
• what they'd do if sent on a multi-week camping trip
• their most fabulous moment in canon
• what they'd sing at karaoke (and how they'd do)
• what they think about in the shower
• what they'd do if someone appeared claiming to be their kid from the future
• what they'd do if someone appeared claiming to be their kid from the past
• what kind of hobbies they have
• if their hair color is natural and how I know
• if this character is dead, and if so, if they can get better

06 -- list your Top 5 anime OTPs.

I don't do OTPs.

Shipping in general very seldom has appeal for me as a be-all and end-all of fannish interests to begin with, and an "OTP" is the worst kind of fannish absolutism as far as I'm concerned.

Years of watching other people fight like cats and dogs over them does nothing to convince me I'm wrong, either.

Kingdom Hearts 3 Director Tetsuya Nomura Explains What Took So Long

"“A lot of people have been mentioning and making it sound like ‘Oh, Nomura’s taking too much time,’ and it hurts,“ Nomura said, through a translator. He explained that the decision was made above his head to switch development to Unreal Engine 4 after about a year of development, which caused extensive delays. In addition, certain timing and resources challenges within Square Enix had an effect."

"He was keen to emphasize that it hasn’t been problems with development or any choices made by him or his team that have caused Kingdom Hearts 3 to take so long. “I wanted to emphasize that it wasn’t a problem on our development teams," he said. "It just happened that way, and there were some decisions that the company had to make, and it just didn’t work out for certain timings that we were hoping to hit.”

“It’s kind of out of my hands,” he added. “I mean, yes, time has passed. But it’s out of my hands.”
"

...

...

AHAHAHAHAHHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHHAA

FUCK YOU NOMURA

SOME OF US HAVEN'T FORGOTTEN YOUR YEARS OF "WE WON'T START UNTIL VERSUS XIII IS COMPLETE" AND THEN YOU FUCKING AROUND AND STALLING THAT GAME FOR YEARS

STOP YOUR FUCKING CRYING AND REWRITING HISTORY AHAHAHAHA

05 -- list your top 5 anime.

I don't do "top [anythings]" any more than I choose or have a "favorite", really. Thoughts change, opinions change, what I want to poke at at any given time changes, and I really don't feel compelled to rank things that I like. Say, ever. You could ask me something like "do you like SEED more than SEED Destiny/Fushigi Yuugi more than Ranma 1/2" etc etc and I could probably muster up an answer (that may well change later for whatever reason), but that's about it.

So, all that being said, if I root around in my hindbrain right this moment for what anime series are currently claiming the lion's share of interest/attention -- though not necessarily a "Top 5" in any capacity -- we have:

01. Saint Seiya (and associated subseries)
02. Yoroiden Samurai Troopers
03. Gundam 00
04. Casshern SINS
05. Star Driver

04 - if you could make a spin-off of any anime, what would it be?

GIVE ME FROZEN TEARDROP OR GIVE ME DEATH.

No, seriously, if there's one thing I want to see an anime of more than anything else, right this moment, I want to see an animated version of Mobile Suit Gundam Wing: Frozen Teardrop. And I do not give a good god damn how many people will scream and howl in outrage over it getting animated and thus firmly 'canonized'. Because it would be glorious, and hilarious, and I want to see the twins and Jr. and Cyrene and Father Maxwell in action, damn it all.

My runner-up choice? I want a spinoff of YST that's a prequel that covers the pre-Netherworld lives and antics of the Demon Generals ... and then, of course, hits their recruitment(/corruption/abduction/whatever) by Arago. And then we can go conquer the Netherworld for him, if we're going with more the second half of YST than the first half. But yes. Gimme bad guy spinoff.

a little shy of four hours in emerg down at the QEII. Joy.

This is my life now, stress and anxiety having palpable physical effects. I might get to sleep at some point, but now I need to de-stress from the answer of stress.

That would be -- without a doubt, even after a good quarter-century or so of the stuff -- Dragon Half.

Because Dragon Half is goddamned ridiculous and it is glorious ~~~

If I hadn't already decided that fic exchanges were something I was not doing after this last one, the current bullshit would have fucking done it anyway.

Thanks for making it abundantly clear that I'm fucking defective and other people deserve even more ~extra treats, mod.

Fuuuuck this. I'm seriously tempted to pull my entries and fuck off altogether; it's not like getting banned from the exchange will matter a damn.
