30-Day Anime Challenge! Day 22: Favorite Weapon, Gear or Armor Used In Anime

Hey guys, Samurai here, back once again with Day 22 of the 30-Day Anime Challenge! Today’s topic of discussion, as the title suggests, is Favorite Weapon, Gear or Armor used in an anime! I had to give this one quite a bit of thought; did I want to go for a classic weapon like Kenshin Himura’s reverse-blade sword or did I want to go with something with less impact like Light Yagami’s Death Note notebook; a weapon that requires you to think before you put a pen to paper? Which one did I go with? More after the break.

30-Day Anime Challenge! Day 20 & 21: Anime Character That Gets On Your Nerves & Favorite Goofy Anime Character

Hey guys, Samurai here! Please accept my apologies for not posting on yesterday! I had every intention to do a post yesterday, but my job kind of got in the way, and I had to make an emergency trip to Lafayette, Louisiana. By the time I made it back home, it was really late, and I was extremely tired. But, I’m awake today and I’m gonna make up for my absence by doing a double-post! Two days for the price of one! You can’t beat that deal! More after the break.

30-Day Anime Challenge! Day 19: Most Epic Scene Ever

Hey guys, Samurai here once again with Day 19 of the 30-Day Anime challenge! I have to admit–these challenges have been really good for me as far as writing is concerned–once I get started, I just can’t seem to step away from the keyboard. In any case, today’s topic is “Most Epic Scene Ever”. Yeah, umm…I picked three. Don’t look at me like that. You try picking just one. These three moments, labeled A, B, and C, represent the epic of the epic in my way of thinking. I wrote up quite a bit for them, so I’m just gonna step aside and let you read what I picked. Oh, and please note that there are heavy-duty spoilers beyond this point, so tread lightly. More after the break!

30-Day Anime Challenge! Day 18: Favorite Supporting Female Anime Character

Hey guys, Samurai here once again with Day 18 of the 30-Day Anime Challenge! Yesterday, we focused in on the Best Supporting Male character in anime, so naturally, we’ll be focusing in on the best female supporting anime character! Pretty much, my prerequisites for best supporting female are the same for best supporting male–a girl who will provide backup in the form of an encouraging word, a sympathetic ear, or, in the case of my selection, a ride on a transforming demonic cat. My pick for this category actually came in a close second for the “Best Female Anime Character Ever” award, and I was hoping for the opportunity to give this beautiful woman her time in the spotlight. This woman pretty much embodies who I would want my daughter to look up to as a role model…if I had kids, that is. More after the break.

30-Day Anime Challenge! Day 17: Favorite Supporting Male Anime Character (Best Bro)

Hey guys, Samurai here with Day 17 of the 30-Day Anime challenge! Hard to believe we’re more than half way done with this month. Time has gone by so freaking fast, it’s almost scary! I guess because I’ve been busy with my new job and other things, I don’t really notice it until I sit down and do one of these posts! Anyway, back to the task at hand. Todays topic is Favorite Male Supporting Anime Character–also known as “Best Bro”. What constitutes a “Best Bro” is a guy who stands by the lead character or characters, even though he may not be one of the main group. He’s the guy who you know, when the chips are down, he’s there to provide backup in the form of an encouraging word, a sympathetic ear, or a full gun magazine clip. Yeah, you can probably guess who my “Best Bro in Anime” is. More after the break.
