Thirty Days of Anime 
12th-Aug-2010 07:55 pm
As a distraction from other... stuff (see locked posts for background) I'll be doing a thirty days meme similar to the ones that angriest, stephen_dedman, and possbert have been doing. I've found one list of topics but too many cater to a style of anime fandom that just isn't me. So at this stage I'm looking for is suggestions for topics to drop and topics to add.

Day 1 - Very first anime
Day 2 - Favorite anime you’ve watched so far Favourite TV series
Day 3 - Your anime crush
Day 4 - Anime you’re ashamed you enjoyed Favourite Film
Day 5 - Anime character you feel you are most like (or wish you were)
Day 6 - Most annoying anime character
Day 7 - Favorite anime couple Character you'd most like to slap
Day 8 - Most epic scene ever
Day 9 - Saddest anime scene
Day 10 - Favorite slice of life anime
Day 11 - Favorite mech series
Day 12 - An ecchi picture from your favorite series Best instalment of a franchise you don't like
Day 13 - Cosplay of your ‘waifu’ or husbando’ Worst instalment of a franchise you do like
Day 14 - Current (or most recent) anime wallpaper
Day 15 - Post a cute Neko-girl A reality check for a genre you like.
Day 16 - Post a kigurumi cosplay of your favorite anime character An anime classic that simply doesnt work for you.
Day 17 - Favorite tsundereBest Background Music

Day 19 - Mandatory swimsuit postChange you'd like to make to any one anime
Day 20 - Favorite shoujo anime (?) Most ambiguous anime character
Day 21 - Best yandere character Favourite OAV series
Day 22 - Favorite boy’s love couple (or yuri couple, if you don’t like that sort of thing) Animation studio you'd most like to slap
Day 23 - Anime you think had the best, or most intriguing art
Day 24 - Favorite anime hero or heroine
Day 25 - Best anime villain
Day 26 - Your favorite harem anime
Day 27 - Favorite anime opening theme song
Day 28 - Favorite pokemon Favourite anime companion/summoned creature
Day 29 - Favorite school uniform Best Anime Music Video
Day 30 - Favorite anime ending theme

As you can see several of those topics are (from my grumpy old fan perspective) just "eww" which is why I'm asking for help with new topics.

EDIT: I'll be updatting this as I take suggestions on board. :)

And for the record, coming up with challenging topics that will be hard to answer counts as helping in this context.

I've been reading angriest's posts (on topics I have a clue about) really interesting (and enthusing... I now have vague plans to actually watch some of the tv he talked about:-) ). I'll be really interested to read your responses... I don't (haven't) watch(ed) much anime at all.
12th-Aug-2010 11:42 am (UTC)
Cool. Is there anything you'd like to find out about in the way of examples, genres, styles, etc?
12th-Aug-2010 12:03 pm (UTC)
You could always include the obvious "Favourite TV series", "Favourite OAV", "Favourite film", etc.

Or maybe "A really obscure anime worth digging out of the archives".
12th-Aug-2010 12:06 pm (UTC)
Thanks for those suggestions!

Are there any topics you'd drop or run far away from?

1) You might want to add something on fanfic (favorite, or fanfic you've written or would like to write)
2) You may want to add a definition for the terms that not everyone knows; I would certainly count as an anime fan but I don't know "yandere" off the top of my head, for instance.
3) Instead of "favorite Pokemon" which limits it to ONE of the "summoned/owned monster" shows, you might want to just say "'mon" and make clear that it's for any of those type of shows.
4) Favorite five-team?
5) Best BGM?
12th-Aug-2010 12:09 pm (UTC)
1) I wouldn't have thought of that, I'll certainly consider it.
2) The "yandere", "tsundere", and "moe" questions are currently on the list to be dropped. Otherwise I'd agree with you, and would post links to the relevant tv tropes page.
3) Possible but at the moment I'm inclined to leave it as is and give an answer along the lines of the classic review of Bubblegum Crash...
4) Ooh, there's a thought!
5) Also worth looking at.

Thanks for the suggestions for inclusions, do you have any particular suggestions for things to drop?
12th-Aug-2010 12:28 pm (UTC)
I agree with dropping the yandare, moe, tsundere. And swimsuit, for that matter.

But dear GOD man, don't link to TVTropes! You'll lose people forever at that point. They'll be gone, never to return, lost in a twisty maze of little webpages.
12th-Aug-2010 12:38 pm (UTC)
Oh the Swimsuit post will be going as soon as I find something decent to replace it with.

As for linking to TV Tropes, I consider that part of my credentials as an Evil Overlord. :)
12th-Aug-2010 12:44 pm (UTC)
You could add "Change you'd like to make to any one anime?"
12th-Aug-2010 01:08 pm (UTC)
Oooh I like that one. Gonna be hard to answer though.
12th-Aug-2010 01:18 pm (UTC)
The only thing I'd find hard about it is that I can think of three specific anime I would change one specific thing about.
13th-Aug-2010 02:28 am (UTC)
And that's what makes it hard: which title do you pick?
12th-Aug-2010 01:18 pm (UTC)
Thought of another one: "Anime world you'd most like to visit?"
13th-Aug-2010 02:27 am (UTC)
Nah, too easy...
13th-Aug-2010 02:51 am (UTC)
El-Hazard? That'd be my choice!
13th-Aug-2010 03:34 am (UTC)
No. :)
22nd-Aug-2010 12:23 am (UTC)
My latest post should give you the answer...

13th-Aug-2010 01:53 am (UTC)
Most hard done by character.

Least deserving character.

Character you'd most like to slap.

Animation studio you'd most like to slap.

Best fan video based on an anime.
13th-Aug-2010 02:26 am (UTC)
Thanks for those suggestions!

Have I already culled the worst questions or are there still some that you'd ditch?
13th-Aug-2010 02:48 am (UTC)
Ones I would cut:

Favourite harem anime I would ditch.

Favourite school uniform too.

Favourite boys love couple / yuri love I see you've left in while cutting out favourite, presumably het. couple. I would posit cutting out couples altogether or just have " Favourite couple of whatever sexes" or favourite love story/interest.

You have "Favourite shoujo" but no "Favourite shounen" Either have none or both.

This is just me, mind.

Another question:
Anime you were predisposed to and wanted to like but ended up hating.

13th-Aug-2010 02:49 am (UTC)
Anime you were sure you were going to hate but ended up liking.
13th-Aug-2010 03:36 am (UTC)
Thanks again for those suggestions, I'll respond in more detail over the weekend that I may actually be getting. :)
13th-Aug-2010 11:32 pm (UTC)
Agreed on the couples question and also (for the moment at least) the shoujo question.

Favourite school uniform was always on the chopping block: it is an aspect of anime I tolerate rather than look out for.

If pressed to keep it I would almost automatically subvert the question by picking the boy's uniform worn by Utena.
