      1. Sweep 

      2. Wear a long sleeve (without tying it)

      3. Put her hair in a ponytail 

      4. Open a pickle jar 

      5. Start a round of applause 

      6. Not look like a war veteran

      7. Wear a pair of gloves 

      8. Work a DJ's turntable 

      9. Play video games against Ruby (maybe now she'll win)

      10. Get Raven's approval

      11. Physically count past 5 

      12. Look at her new arm and NOT think of Penny

      13. Play Pat-A-Cake

      14. Draw her hand as a turkey 

      15. Put on a sock puppet show with more than one puppet

      16. Make armless jokes

      17. Pump it, pump it real good

      18. Be hARMLESS

      19. Forget about Adam 

      20. Use a computer mouth with the correct hand. 

      Notice how "fight" wasn't listed? That's because Yang is still one of the best damn characters on RWBY and I'm excited to see she's getting back on her feet. Why did I spend time to actually think this list up? I figured it'd be fun to try and get Barbara to laugh at a few. 

    • Which "Dere" does it best?

      In anime, there are certain character personalities that are always included in a particular character(s). Some Manga writers try to stray from these cliche tropes while others embrace them proudly. These personality types are the "Dere" which are most commonly found in female characters, mostly in harem or high school themed anime. 

      These Dere include: 

      Tsundere - A Character that acts mean or often violent towards the protagonist/main characters, however deep down has a sweet inside. 

      Yandere: A sweet and cute character on the outside, however their affection/obsession with the protagonist/main characters boarders on the dangerous or even psychotic. 

      Kuudere: Unemotional character who acts cool, however after connecting with the protagonist/main characters begins to show a sweet side. 

      Dandere: Anti-Social character who usually avoids other people, that is until befriended by the protagonist/main characters. 

      There are a variety of different 'Dere' that come in all kinds of combinations, but for now lets focus on these main four. As an anime fan I've been aware of these types mainly during my High School years with people I've known, befriended, or dated. I've always liked one type of 'Dere' in one anime, but like the opposite in another. 

      Which do you think is the best type of Dere? Personally I have a soft spot for the Kuudere type; something about getting a laugh or a smile from a normally unemotional person is just so rewarding. Which type do you prefer? Can you think of a particular set of characters who fit these styles?

    • Yuri on Ice, not that bad.

      So I recently watched Yuri on Ice for the first time, I binged up to episode 9 on Crunchyroll just to see what the hype was about. To be fair, probably like most first-time viewers I know NOTHING of figure skating however the intro song was so damn catchy and had such fantastic visuals (which I swear they update every episode!) that I kept watching. Personally I think it's alright, not an anime for me because I eventually lose interest in these heavy romance themed anime (no I don't have a problem that they're men). The few shows I actually watched to make sure the characters ended up together was Clannad, High School Host Club, and Toradora. 

      The animation was incredible, the smoothness of the movements was much more than I was expecting given how plain the characters seemed in the first episode. Viktor and Yuri definitely seem cute together, as the series goes on they incorporate different harem-like troupe characters into the mix (tsundere, Kuudere, Dandere, etc), which is to be expected. It had some great emotional scenes, some touching moments, but I feel like Yuri on Ice is just not something I'd follow. Not that it isn't good, I just prefer more humor/action mixes in anime. I can definitely see why my female friends are hooked on it now. 

      It's good to see an anime that dares to be different gets the spotlight, not so much for being about male romances but for trying to include something as relatively unexplored like figure skating. Odds are I'll give it the rest of this season, but I'll suggest it to anyone who likes romance themed anime. 

    • American accents in Japan.

      So I'm watching WWW.WAGNARI!! on Crunchyroll when I notice some of the characters begin speaking English, which isn't too uncommon in some anime but often it has a very distinct tone to it. While its understandable that Japanese and English are literally two completely different languages I can't help but wonder what American's sound like to those in Japan. Are we charming like a British accent? Friendly like an Australian accent? Or do we actually have that same broke-ish tone whenever an American tries to speak Japanese? 

      It's completely understandable if voice actors need to pace themselves before reading a line in English and obviously some more experienced actors may be able to hit an American accent better. I'm curious about the majority's opinion on how American voice actors would sound reading Japanese. 

    • Why toast?

      AlecsanderM If Senpai won't notice y

      In every anime you usually see a fine selection of cliches: skirts being blown up by a random breeze, female characters being ridiculously stranger than the protagonist, etc. But one that has always confused me is...why do school-themed anime characters usually have a scene where they're running to school (usually late) with a piece of toast? 

      I heard its to communicate that they're 'air headed', like they woke up late and had to grab something quick to eat, but I mean specifically why toast? Wouldn't it be more convenient to grab fruit or something pre-made or doesn't require toasting? it a fetish thing? Is there a 'toast fetish'? I'm seriously scared to Google it. 

      It's a totally stupid observation, but every time I see one of these scenes I think "wait, so she's the ONLY character our of hundreds to ever be late for a class?" Then I imagine what if a handful of random characters all met on the train/sidewalk each running to school with toast in their mouths. 

  • About Me

    I'm a weeaboo living in Florida, luckily the heroin addicted zombies and disappearing children at a mouse's theme park actually makes my abnormality seem mediocre. As is tradition in my State, I participate annually in the 'Sweating of the Balls' that only takes place in Florida 11 months of the year. 

    Currently I'm an art student who part-times at a retail job, that's right I have the delightfully rare combination of insomnia and artistic self-loathing. Between school and work I exercise my creative imagination like most people in their 20s; by verbally breaking down my beloved friends and family emotionally and spiritually. My favorite humor is between insufferable puns and dirty humor, Pun-ography if you will. 

    Like most people I live my life by an inspirational quote:
    "Kawaii in the streets, Senpai in the sheets". While I walk that thin line between success and owning a body-pillow I keep myself motivated by indulging in Rooster Teeth's fine shows and programs. Truthfully I find most censored/overly scripted sites incredibly pretencious and prefer a more realistic band of entertainers. I guess what I'm saying is: Rooster Teeth's so fucked up, I feel just at home. Love you know, despite never actually meeting anyone.
