Unique Blogger Award

Another day, another award. What can I say, the name Yomu will be etched in history as one of the world’s greatest bloggers. In addition to my many previous titles, such as Master Yomu, Brother Yomu, Yomu the Prognosticator… you may now also call me Yomu the Unique.

Let’s get the rules out of the way first and foremost:

  • Display the award!
  • Thank the person who nominated you, and post a link to their blog on your blog. (Try and include a little bit of promotion!)
  • Answer the questions they’ve written for you!
  • Nominate bloggers and give them three questions in the spirit of sharing love and solidarity within our blogging family!

Thank you Eumiiboo for the nomination. I’m glad that you’ve become such a great member of the aniblogging community!

Unofficial song for this post:

Mainly because of the lyrics that coincide perfectly with the name of Eumiiboo’s blog – Sakuras Galleria. 🙂
So make sure you think of Sakuras Galleria when you hear this song!

Also, I’m not sure if this song is from an anime, but if I had to guess I would say it’s probably from an idol anime? I’d love to find out if anyone knows.

Let’s move on to some questions now.

If you were to describe your life based on an anime character, who would it be, and of course why?

As much as I’d like to use my spirit animal, Hiramaru, for this, my life couldn’t be described by him.

The character that I think I could use to best describe my life is Luke von Fabre from Tales of the Abyss. I never actually watched the anime, but I’ve played through the game twice, so I understand his character very well.

Luke starts out as a spoiled brat who thinks he has everything figured out, and throughout the series, he is bombarded with life lessons and reality checks. He transforms from a character filled with pride and arrogance, to an extremely humble man. And that’s the part that really resonates with me.

All through high school and university, I was full of myself. Thought I was more mature than the people around me, that I had everything figured out. My political beliefs were right, my outlook was right. Over the past two years I’ve undergone a rather complete transformation. I feel like a different person.

My eyes have been opened many times. It’s not something I can quite explain. I’ve come across so many different pieces of information that have changed how I view the world. The lenses by which I view the world are much different. I’ve become more traditional, more religious, more focused, more humble. It’s all happened in such a short period of time. Just a few years out of 25 years of my life have changed everything for me. I feel like I have learned so much, and still have so much to learn.

That’s about the best way I can explain it.

Now let’s try to get personal, what was one of the anime’s you’ve watch that left an impact on your life, or perhaps change your view in a certain point in your life.

Last question wasn’t personal enough eh? Haha.

I don’t think anime itself has every really left an “impact” on my life. I really enjoy anime, and watch it all the time. It’s made me cry, laugh, and given me countless hours of enjoyment. But I can’t think of a time that any specific anime changed me as a person. The biggest impact I would say that anime has had on my life in general would be that it helps me settle down before I go to sleep at night. I like to watch a few episodes before going to sleep.

Hope that’s a satisfactory answer!

Imagine, you have been chosen to create a crossover between three anime series, which would it be and why?

I would like to see a crossover between Maoyuu Maou Yuusha, Akame ga Kill!, and Baccano!. A fantasy crossover of course.

I’m not necessarily interested in the characters themselves from these anime. What I would like to see is an anime that manages to create a vibrant and living fantasy world. Rebellion, strife, and war like we see in Akame ga Kill!. Post-war / kingdom management, critical thinking, and other political elements from Maoyuu Maou Yuusha. And a living cast of characters with different perspectives and goals from Baccano!.

I’d love to see the various stories of characters with different perspectives. Rulers, soldiers, traders, adventurers, et cetera. I’d love a fantasy world that feels alive and constantly changing, from all of these perspectives. Kingdoms rising and falling. Characters that cross paths at times, as allies, enemies, or neither. Just a fantasy world that feels vibrant and has a lot of depth, both through nations and characters. That would probably be my dream anime.


Here are my questions:

  1. What is your favourite anime that has made you cry? (If anime has never made you cry, I suggest watching one of these: Violet Evergarden, Clannad + After Story, AnoHana, Angel Beats!).
  2. Have you ever felt motivated by any specific anime? Which one and why?
  3. This one will probably result in either very simple or complex answers – why did you decide upon the username & blog name you chose?

Nominations:

Thanks again Eumiiboo for the nomination.

Until next time.
Thanks for reading!

      Just think of it like Baccano! or Durarara!! in a fantasy setting. One character could be a noble, one a soldier, one a trader, one a bartender, etc.. a variety of characters like this. They all cross paths at some time or another – maybe because of a war, or rebellion or something. The rest is just a developed overworld – kingdom(s) and war(s), and politics / intrigue.

  1. You went through a lot character development from Luke von Fabre into Yomu. I wouldn’t mind seeing a cross like that, or just a fantasy series in general that focuses on different types of characters in that world. It would be refreshing from the things I usually see in the genre.
