What Should chii Cosplay As?

So I've decided to go to Anime Boston and like the last time I went, I want to dress up. Hopefully better than the first time... Though to be fair it was still pretty good considering. This will clear off goal #7 of my anime goals. I really need to fix that goals list because a lot of the stuff isn't doable for me anymore. Talk about biting off more than I could chew!

My ideas so far:

 Sooooooo yeah! Which one does everyone think I should go with? Or maybe you have a better suggestion? As long as it isn't too crazy and actually possible I shall consider it! A poll is on the right for people to vote in.

Help me out here!

2000 Watched, So Lets Remember My Anime Firsts

After viewing my 2000th anime being Legend of the Galactic Heroes: Spiral Labyrinth, (a few weeks ago) I happened to come across My anime firsts post over on Mainichi Anime Yume. Very inspired I took the list from there and added some of my own questions. I started thinking right away about what my first were simply because of that post and my chiropractor whom that very night asked me what I did for a living. Not having a job in general I just said "I blog" which of course let to the question "Oh? What about?". I Had to tell him about anime and of course he had no clue what I was really talking about but he then asked "What got you into watching anime?". This question got me thinking all over again about my anime journey in life because I couldn't really come up with anything else other than I had just grown up with it. Remembering these anime is half the fun of these following questions!

Anywho, with that in mind I give you all my anime first that I can remember!

First Anime Watched (English)

This is a toss up since when I was a little kid Fables of the Green Forest & Maya the Bee were shown on TV. So without fully knowing that I was watching anime I had started. The one I was fully aware that it was an anime would have to be Dragon Ball and then of course Sailor Moon.

First Non-Kids Anime

Dominion Tank Police on late night TV. It blew my mind on how awesome it was.

First Anime song Heard (TV size in Japanese)

I would say that Gundam Wing is the winner here.

First Anime song Heard (full version) and First Anime (Japanese with subs)

I first watched Escaflowne on TV so I heard it's "special" English OP only at first. Then my best friend told me that I absolutely had to re-watch the series in Japanese. I wasn't so sure at first why but then he showed me the full version of the actual OP for it and I was sold.

First Anime Obsession

Sailor Moon I'd have to say. I was so tsundere for it at first too which makes it all the more hilarious to me. When Macross Plus came out the obsession moved onto that. Followed quickly by Gundam Wing.

First Anime Franchise-based Movie

Patlabor: The Movie and it ended up hooking me on awesome mecha series ever since.

First Anime Original Movie

Ninja Scroll. <3 Never gets old.

First Character Obsession (Male/Female)

Blue Saphir AKA Sapphire from Sailor Moon for my male obsession hands down. He was part of the Black Moon Clan and I can safely say that I was VERY (link contains spoilers) obsessed with his tragic character. For my female obsession it's honestly harder to remember. I suppose it would be Sailor Mercury simply because of what I stated in her character post. I think being obsessed with Myung and her alter ego Sharron was a much better fit for me when Macross Plus came along. Even the next anime obsession Gundam Wing's Relena was a better choice.

First Anime That Made Me Cry

Grave of the Fireflies hands down. It is one of only 6 titles that have ever made tears flow from my eyes. Anime for some reason has a really hard time making me cry.

First Product Bought (non-video)

I bought Sailor Moon posters from the dollar store. I still have them and one day when I can put them up on the wall again I shall and it'll be awesome!

First Figure

Figures I suppose. All these little Hetalia ones that my boyfriend bought for me for my birthday in 2010.

First Video Collection (VHS/DVD)

VHS is really fuzzy for me since I don't have any of them anymore and they ended up getting stolen at some point during my many moves. I'm pretty sure Dirty Pair was my first VHS find though. DVD wise like I said here it's either a toss up between Macross Plus or Kite. I just for the life of me can't remember the order.

First Manga Read

Battle Angel Alita because I was dating a guy that was very much into anime and helped me get even more into anime at the time. He had every original volume and I read it every time I went over to visit him haha.

First Manga Bought

Chobits but because she had the same name as ME. My nickname when I was an elementary student was chii cause I had a lot of energy like chi! I just rolled with it ever since.

First Convention

Anime North in 2009. I'm very much a convention noob.

First Hentai

Mine would have to be La Blue Girl... I'm sure a lot of other people share this as their first as well.


First Hentai Manga

Bondage Fairies! Might be better not to ask how this came about 😛

First Fansub

This would probably be Ranma 1/2. It was the first anime I watched with my best friend whom had internet at the time and could get anime for us to watch that wasn't on TV.

First AMV Watched

It's actually really hard to remember this but I think it would have to be this one. I've never had the desire to make one but if I did it would so be for Legend of the Galactic Heroes to Muse's Knights Of Cydonia.

First Fan Fic Written

It was a Macross Plus one I'll admit but I'll NEVER let anyone see it no matter how much you ask 😛 There's even a Gundam Wing one hanging around somewhere too 😛

First Anime Web Site Made

Hilariously enough I only started my blog at the end of 2009 and it is the only anime thing I have ever done online that wasn't part of something already there.

First Anime Blog Visited

Digitalboy's many blogs I have followed since he appeared before me in 2007. He's one of the only people's opinions on anime that I really give a damn about.


First Anime Site Visited

When I was a kid my mom was dead set against having internet in the house (I don't know...) so I didn't really get into the whole internet thing a lot. Quite hilarious that I didn't really start using the internet till 2000 XD Anyway, in 2002 I discovered a little interesting site called Anime-Planet 😛 I didn't join at first cause I didn't understand that you had to join but I lurked around the main site and on the forums for many years. It wasn't till 2005 that I joined and have never looked back. 2005 I would also consider the time where I reintroduced myself to anime after a few years of not watching a lot.

First Anime Dropped

Adventures of Mini-Goddess. I started it with my best friend and thought it sucked a lot. Tried picking it up again later on my own and it still sucked. Tried watching it a few years ago with my boyfriend because we watched all of AMG and he wanted to try it out. Dropped yet again. It was meant to never be watched by me I believe.

First Anime Hated

Green Green wins this title. I disliked it SO much that I couldn't get past episode 3 of the series. Which is ok by me because I know a lot of people that think the same way I do about it.

First Anime Drawing

I only ever drew Sailor Moon pictures because back then I actually loved to draw. My first picture was Luna the cat eating a donut. The second one hilariously is Sailor Mars's Grandpa sticking his tounge out in a YUM kind of way. It seems that strangeness of me still hasn't worn off.

First Cosplay

I dunno if I would count this because I didn't try very hard but last year at Anime Boston I cosplayed (we were on the top floor and it was really hot up there) Yamamoto-sensei and my boyfriend kindly dressed as Tsuchida. They weren't very good but whatever. I really would like to cosplay with a proper costume and all someday but money is a bitch.

Random other fun firsts I remember:

First Long-Running Shonen Series

Of course this would be Dragon Ball. Long before I even knew what a shounen series was. If I went by actually knowing I'd have to say Bleach.

First Mecha Series

Macross Plus. How I love you so.

First Gundam Series

Gundam Wing

First Magical Girl/Shoujo Series

Sailor Moon

Too funny NOT to put this here

First Harem Series

Love Hina. Surprise surprise here lol

First Reverse Harem

Fruits Basket... It was a terrible start into this sub-genre for me.

First Sports Series

Azusa Will Help! I honestly haven't watched a lot of sports anime in general.

First Food Related Series

Yakitate!! Japan. Been hooked on any anime ever since that has anything to do with cooking! Yes that even means the shoujo Yumeiro Pâtissière!

First Series that Messed With My Mind

Lain hands down and then I watched Evangelion now soon after it.

So there you have it! Got anymore questions for me? Leave a comment and ask!

Check out this other post that has a whole list of other people's anime firsts as well. ^__^

chii Finally Made One!

Favourites are a great thing. What makes these shows mine is that I think about them very often when I'm thinking about anime and wish to watch them more than once. Some of them I've already watched 5+ times. To be a favourite they also must be entertaining as a whole series. So if they have season 2's or more, I should have loved them just as much as their season one. Everything on the list below applies! I've been meaning to make this kind of list for many years now and I've finally sat down and mulled through all my anime titles and picked these 100 to be my absolute favourites.

Like digitalboy I'll be updating this list regularly from now on but not once a month. I will only update when I feel an anime has stood up to my standards to break into this 100 anime list. I will keep a list at the bottom of this page which of which anime has moved in and which it has kicked out. I doubt that it'll happen very often but time will tell. Check out my Does Not Want List for a taste of my dislikes.

On the Sixth Day of Christmas My True Love Gave to Me: Six Macross Titles

On the Sixth Day of Christmas My True Love Gave to Me,
Six Macross Titles,
Five Delicious Openings,
Four Quirky One Shots,
Three Big Contenders,
Two Amazing Rivals,
and Char Aznable on a Horse

My favourite Franchise

This year I finally sat down and watched ALL of the Macross titles. Why I put them off for so long is really a mystery to me but I'm very glad I've finally watched them all. I had a great time doing so and Macross is totally a highlight anime wise for me this year.

#1 Macross Plus

I have Macross Plus to thank for getting me more into anime so how this couldn't be my number one would just be silly. To this day I think I've seen it about 30+ times and I never tire of it. I've actually watched it twice this year so far and I might make it a third over the holidays. Everything about it is glorious to me and there's no telling me otherwise.

#2 Super Dimensional Fortress Macross

I would kill to see this one updated with new animation. Don't get me wrong here, the animation for back then was amazing but it certainly doesn't age well with newer fans who have Frontier to feast upon. The series had a movie made up condensing what happened in the series called Do You Remember Love. This movie was one of the best movie adaptations from a series I have ever seen. It was perfect. Who would have thought that singing (along with some pew pew action) to save the galaxy would be such a hit among fans.

#3 Macross Zero

Ah! The story were it all began. Words really can't describe how much I loved this ova. It was the perfect length for what it wanted to tell and the characters were just amazing. It is also one of the prettiest animations I have ever seen. My next viewing of this ova shall be downstairs on my big TV. Not on a tiny computer monitor.

#4 Macross Frontier

Team Sheryl FTW! Frontier was very enjoyable to watch and I honestly can't wait to view it again. I'll probably watch it again just before the next movie comes out of it. While a lot of it was different from what I expected, there was a lot of the same feelings I had gathered from the other series and melded into this one.

#5 Macross 7

Oh where to begin with this one. There was so much love hate going on in this series it was just too funny at times. The glorious Flower Girl to totally hating on Basara and rooting for Gamlin instead. There was much to be desired from the show and much was also given to the viewer weather they wanted it or not. Macross 7 is the longest series of them all and also has 2 ova's and one movie attached to it. I gotta say that the Macross 7 Encore ova was more enjoyed by me than the whole series. The Fleet of Strongest Women episode was the best ever where the movie The Galaxy is Calling Me was the worst of the bunch and offended me greatly. Dynamite 7 only mildly offended me since it resembled Star Trek Movie IV so much. Yes, that is the one with the whales.

#6 Macross II

I honestly need to re-watch this one because I think it might just be in the #5 spot instead of here, but I can't really remember much about it since I think I rush watched it... I did end up rating it 8/10 so I obviously enjoyed it or something.

I can't wait till the next Macross Frontier movie comes out sometime next year. ^__^
