My 15 Minutes of Fame? Liebster Award 2015!

Up until a few months ago, I had never even heard of the Liebster Awards before. Now it isn’t some grand affair, but it is a way of acknowledging other like-minded individuals who are working hard to make waves in their own areas of interest. I received my nomination for this award from Silvachief over at The Geek Clinic. (Yeah, it my first time, obviously. xD)

After connecting with Silvachief for the first time last year in October, we have then added each other in our blogrolls and exchanged comments. We both write on anime but my main focus is reviews while Silvachief’s various kinds of anime-related posts definitely adds an extra spark to his website. If you haven’t already, I encourage you to make something to drink, find a comfy spot and take a read of The Geek Clinic’s new posts.

For those who, like myself, had not come across the Liebster Awards before now, the way it works is generally like this – After you receive a nomination and accept taking on the award you then must:

  • Thank the person who nominated you, and post a link to their blog on your blog.
  • Display the award on your blog — by including it in your post and/or displaying it using a “widget” or a “gadget”. (Note that the best way to do this is to save the image to your own computer and then upload it to your blog post.)
  • Answer 11 questions about yourself, which will be provided to you by the person who nominated you.
  • Provide 11 random facts about yourself.
  • Nominate 5 – 11 blogs that you feel deserve the award, who have a less than 1000 followers. (Note that you can always ask the blog owner this since not all blogs display a widget that lets the readers know this information!)
  • Create a new list of questions for the blogger to answer.
  • List these rules in your post (You can copy and paste from here.) Once you have written and published it, you then have to:
  • Inform the people that they have been nominated for the Liebster award and provide a link for them to your post so that they can learn more about it. (they might not have ever heard of it!).

So here goes with a little more about myself!

  2. After watching Beck, I had always wanted to be in an Indies Band as the lead guitarist.
  3. I'm learning Japanese to be able to watch RAW Anime and be able to understand Japenese Music, I still enjoy being able to cluelessly sing the lyrics though.
  4. No matter how much I eat & what I eat, I don't gain wait. So, Yeah I'm a little skinny guy and I can do nothing about it.
  5. I find yoga, backing and sewing absolutely therapeutic. 
  6. I have an endless lists of all the things I want to learn such as; Japanese, Karate, Tennis and Muay Thai. I would be a perpetual student if I could.
  7. I love football and I'm a die hard Manchester United Fan. (Yeah, good sports anime recommendations are welcomed.)
  8. My pet hate is when people reply me super slow on Facebook or any other social network.

  10.  I'm a very very optimistic person, I'm always looking for the better in every situation.

Don't go anywhere, the post is not finished yet.
Now The Questions from Silvachief

1. Milk, White or Dark?

Milk Chocolate! I love it's more creamier taste, less bitter flavor and lighter brown color. 

2. Do you play video games regularly? Is so, which one is your favorite? If not, what's another hobby of yours?

Definitely, Super Mario Bros. 3 ^~^
I can grab that game at anytime and just play the hell out of it. I remember playing that for hours as a kid with my cousins, the game just felt so complete. 1 (the original super) was good. 2 was good but strange. 3 just felt right. World definitely expanded, Hence I always go back to 3.

3. If you had to pick one anime character to forever be by your side (but unable to be seen or heard by others), who would it be?

Damn, so many choices. But, Okay If I had to pick one to always be at my side and would be unable to be seen or heard by others, it would be Minakami Misao from Asura Cryin.

Minakami Misao my personal spirit guard. ;)

4. What types of books do you read? Which are your favorites?

I like to read all sorts of books. But, when I want to escape my favorites are Fantasy Literature and Murder Mysteries. However, I also like to read non-fiction on subjects which interest me such as, mythology and other fairly esoteric matters. I also like to read classics, but I tend to avoid reading too many. One of my favorite novel series is The Blood and Brotherhood Saga by Jeremy Laszlo.

5. You must pick one country to relocate to immediately, where do you go?

You just don't ask this question to an anime reviewer. Of course, Its Japan.

6. If you could change one thing about the universe we live in, what would it be? (I mean big-scale stuff, like alien contact or people growing horse tails)

Make all of us Humans look like anime characters? B)

7. What is your melee weapon of choice?

Two-Hand Sword. (I'd like to be a dual wielder B) Though, it's optimized for cutting rather than thrusting, there are thrusting oriented examples designed for battles between knights.

8. What is your ranged weapon of choice?

Something like a rifle? Cause I think that it has a good range and I'm more proficient with it. And, it did deal good damage.

9. What do you hope to accomplish in the next 5 years?

In five years, huh? I'd like to become a valued employee of a company and be an expert of my position.

10. What are 3 things that would be a deal breaker for you regarding a potential partner?

  • Flirting with other guys? We’ve all been there, and dated one of those women. They’ll even do it right in front of you, and say “Oh, I was just being friendly!” Yeah, deal – broken. In legitimate relationships – there is no place for that. Ever.
  • Is a cheater? Maybe you’re one of the guys that can deal with a girl that is constantly flirting with other guys. It’s possible, maybe you flirt with other girls – and you have a mutual understanding. I’ll never understand it, but that’s just me.
  • Lying? Honesty is obviously important to a relationship. You can’t really expect to get a ton out of a relationship that has no trust. Tell the truth, or watch the relationship crumble. 

  • 11. You may choose to live in (and be intimately involved with) the world of Muv-Luv Alternative, Attack on Titan or Deadman Wonderland. Which do you choose and why?

    I would choose Attack on Titan because I'm fascinated by its world and would love to live my life by the rule:  " You either succumb to it and accept it as your fate, or try to resist their invasion by all means. "

    1. Thanks for participating ^_^

      I'm also trying to teach myself Japanese and I did Karate for about 5 years back in high school (too busy at university).

      I have so much trouble trying to imagine real life anime-styled, though I suppose it's easier than imagining how anime characters would look in reality.

      What kind of company are you aiming to be a part of?

      1. Really? I don't have any problems imagining real life anime-styled though, I could even write a book explaining how real life would be if it was all Anime. ^~^

        But my schedule has been so tight lately that I don't think I'll ever get the chance to learn Karate.

        With the company,eh? I don't know Chief. Lot of Stress and Confusion. Should I look for the right job or company? I guess, I'll give it time.

    2. Some animeanime life is also based on real life situation. But some are just too imaginative..
