11 -- what is your favorite drama anime?

This was a hard one, because most mecha anime qualifies as drama. While I don't know all the questions on this meme, I know there are a couple of mecha ones coming up. A lot of what I thought of that is very dramatic is also more romance or mecha or action or... whatever. So a straight-up 'first thought for this is drama' was really hard.

So here are two:

Planetes, which is a wonderful story about space-debris collectors. Both it and the manga made me cry so many times.

Starship Operators, about a warship of trainees basically financing their battles by being broadcast 24/7. As soon as anyone gets a name and any sort of subplot, expect them to die.

Both shows play space incredibly straight and while Planetes is the harder sci-fi, Starship Operators is the more brutal.

They are both very, very good.

Hm, I've been trying to post That Day Back Then on fanfiction.net, but the story is not going through. I dearly hope the story won't end up showing up on the site five times. :'D But if it does, er, now you know why.

So, back in February, I felt that I wouldn't be playing Fire Emblem Heroes long if there wasn't new content. But there was, so here I still am. XD Also, the LSK cell phone game sadly stopped working pretty soon after I reached Rank 1 back in February... so I played more FEH instead. (I think they just stopped maintaining that game...)


I autobattled my way from 40,000 points to 100,240 points. :'D I was going to stop at 50,000... but then I pulled an Alm, and he worked pretty well with an autobattle team, haha... (This team actually managed to finish Hard 5 once all by themselves through autobattle without all dying~. Go team~). Alm also came at a great time to test out the Phantom Speed seal to go along with his Windsweep skill. It does actually work pretty well with poking at Hectors. Before Alm, 4 ★ Mae was my bonus unit, but she was too squishy for autobattling. If the next Tempest Trials is any time soon though, I'm not sure I'll try for 99,999 again. XD;

10 -- what is your favorite 'moe' anime?

Hmm. I don't watch a lot of slice-of-life/girls-doing-everyday-things shows, which is where I think a lot of moe falls. I know Oreimo had a lot of moe elements, as does Eromanga Sensei (which I need to catch up on). And I did enjoy Girls Und Panzer and Gunslinger Girl, though for the latter I'd recommend the manga over the anime.

Notes: For the [community profile] whole_new_world Alternate Reality/Changing Canon prompt "Altered Past." Prompt table over here. I've always wanted to explore this scene, so here's an AU take on it.

Whew-- Friday. This was a long, hot week.

I scheduled the window installation, which is still a month out (as expected). While this company seems relatively efficient, affordable, and I've heard very good things about the actual windows, their customer service has been just shy of atrocious. I had to beg the scheduling rep to stay on the phone to answer a couple of basic questions like 'how much space should I have clear around each window?' and whatnot. And this is after two other people coming out to measure, etc. and making disparaging and freakshow comments about my place.

Mostly, when I haven't been too groggy to do anything, I've been playing Brave Exvius. I'm not far into the story, since there are so many events to poke around in otherwise. So for every bit I progress the story, I'm burning through my energy gauge with grinding and whatnot. I did manage to score a Warrior of Light today, so I'm excited. I haven't had a chance to do much with him, though. I actually really like the BE original summons as much as anyone. There may be drabbles forthcoming. ^^;;

I want to try to do some writing this weekend. We'll see. It's been so long... I suppose I can get back to putting some stuff up on AO3 and whatnot, too? I probably have less than 5% of my total output up over there. *facepalms*

There's no time like the present!

09 -- name an anime character you absolutely hate.

'Hate' is a strong word for me. I have plenty of characters I really, really don't like. The few downright hates that come to mind are all from video game land...

And one definitely-anime example where a character had what could have been an endless amount of potential except it was completely disregarded and... wasted anyone on a character who had been established by the bulk of the previous canon to have absolutely no reason to exist.

Stellar Loussier from Gundam SEED Destiny.

And then whoops, like a thousand words of explanation! )

08 -- who is your favorite anime character?

Judging solely by merchandise owned, it's some sort of unholy tie between Athrun Zala and Gundam Exia.

I feel like whoever wrote this meme didn't consider there are people who've been watching anime for, y'know, decades.
