    What Are Your Phobias

    I have a few phobias, but my main one is arachnophobia. I have a big fear of spiders, but it's not as strong as it once was, but if you put one in front of me, I'll still scream or shriek. I have a slight fear of heights, which is ironic since I've used a plane more than once. I guess, for me, it's like I'm okay if I'm strapped down or have a seat belt or whatever. I have an issue if I have to get on step stool or a ladder or whatever. I blame it on bad balance. lol

    Recommend me a Japanese dish to make!

    Sukiyaki or any nabe dish, as they're easy to prepare.

    When Did You Give Up on Naruto?

    I know a lot of people felt this way, but for me, I never had a problem with Naruto's filler since they were usually character focused and anime original. Also, for me, the manga was dropped by me for the same reason as the anime...it felt like the actual main plot was dragging and felt that it was time to end.

    Do you like Fantasy anime?

    Hm, I guess I like it in some way. A couple I've seen are and liked are the Tales of Symphonia OVAs, and some of the .hack series. I guess maybe Utawarerumono might count here too. Maybe the Mahou Sensei Negima series as well...but that's so-so to me. Anyone have any "fantasy" anime recommendations that's a bit older? Something before the early 2000s? Early 2000s are okay, but seems for me, I have trouble getting into much after like 2004 or 2005. Stuff dealing with magic in a fantasy-like world has always been a draw for me in general, regardless if it's anime or not.
  5. The only thing I'm semi-watching is the 1968 version of Gegege no Kitaro. After I get through as much as I can of that (all the eps aren't around) I'll go to the 1971 version.

    What Is On Your "To Watch" List?

    Man, you guys have a lot of series there. My list is terribly short...but here's the link that goes directly to my, "Plan to watch" list. Most of these titles have been sitting here for years. The newest thing there is Detective Conan movie 22. I bought my movie ticket ahead of time for April 13, but due to my being busy, I couldn't actually go see it on opening day. So, I contributed to the sales, I just didn't see it since I was so busy preparing to move back here to the states. I'll have to wait for a sub online this time. 😞 I was also disappointed that there wasn't a theatrical Kuroshitsuji movie this year. There was last year and I truly enjoyed it. https://myanimelist.net/animelist/ssjup81?status=6 Edit: For those of you who don't want to click the link, I'll type them up here...

    Anyone got Pinterest?

    I have one that I seldom use, but I was originally using it for work to find other art or projects I could do with my students.

    Unpopular opinions.

    I'm not fully disagreeing with the poster, though. I just corrected the poster. JKR never said she should've had Hermione end up with Harry (Harry x Hermione fans jumped to that conclusion...she just said that maybe the relationship wouldn't work out in adulthood , due to Hermione being so critical and Ron wit his self-esteem issues, unless they worked hard at it, which she never said they wouldn't or couldn't) and she DID hint at Ron and Hermione as early as book 1 and the two DO fit the "bickering couple dynamic" and the two DO enjoy their bickering sessions on some level because JKR showed that in book 5 that both were bothered and offended when Harry got on them for their bickering.

    Unpopular opinions.

    Actually, this isn't true at all. Nowhere did JKR say that Hermione would've worked with Harry. She just mentioned that maybe she wouldn't have worked out with Ron in the long run or something like that, who knows....but Harry was NEVER mentioned and given Hermione's personality and Harry hating to be nagged, it probably wouldn't work out at all which is why Harry only saw her in a platonic way and almost like an older sister/mother figure. Also, JKR was hinting at Ron x Hermione as early as book 1 and pretty much slapped us in the face with it in book 2. Kinda hate when people twist what JKR said regarding that. Book wise, though, Ron x Hermione works since they fit the bickering couple dynamic and in book 5, you find out they actually LIKE it on some level. Movie wise, imo, Ron x Hermione doesn't work. Hermione seems better suited with Harry.

    It's difficult for most anime series to hold my interest if it was made past like 2005 and just isn't interesting to me? Does that count?

    Spaghetti or pizza

    I think I've just outgrown pizza over the years and prefer spaghetti.
  12. If I were a kid being asked this question, I would've probably said Victorian London or either the Medieval times in England as I always had a fascination with both back then...but knowing what I know now, NO WAY! I'd also be scared of time traveling because I'm black and would probably be treated like crap anyway and probably be accused of being "uppity". I'd stick to the present-day. At least I know my limitations in the present....but maybe I'd jump into the future by a couple of weeks just to get winning lottery numbers or something and return back with that knowledge. At least I'll be able to visit Japan again sooner rather than later and maybe take a European vacation. lol

    50 Shades Of Rant (literally ranting) *SPOILERS*

    Actually, I figured it was due to our having a hetero-male biased world. Most guys don't want to see naked dudes. Women have been subjected to being "sex objects" for centuries now, so it's expected for them to be shown off as such in certain mediums.

    Cartoons that you've watched..

    I totally forgot about South Park. I still watch that. I miss when the show had normal-length seasons, though. The most recent season was pretty enjoyable. Anyway, the reason the show matured was probably because Matt and Trey have. They're both in their late 40s now.

    What is your view on other ethnic group?

    I view everyone pretty much the same. If you're nice to me, I like you. If you're mean to me or completely rude, I avoid you and don't give you the time of day. I guess I'm equal towards everyone in that regard.
