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.

365 Days of Anime Characters: Day 175/365 Oscar François de Jarjayes

Day 175/365

Oscar François de Jarjayes

From the anime Rose of Versailles, Oscar François de Jarjayes is a powerful woman that was raised from birth as a man so she could be her fathers successor and command the Royal Guards serving at the Court after he retires. Oscar is loved by both men and women, especially Marie Antoinette whom she protects within the Court. As the series moves along Oscar learns of the political ideals of the Revolution and that the royalist regime is corrupt, thus the French Revolution is about to begin.

Why I like her: She is a wonderful woman that fights for what she believes is correct. Her character was so well done in EVERYTHING she had going against her and had to fight for. There's a great story between her and André Grandier which is one of my favourites.

Why I hate her: No hate.

Overall: Oscar is the perfect character for today since it's Saint-Jean-Baptiste Day here in Quebec which also celebrates the provinces The Fête nationale.

Day 5 of The 12 Days of Christmas

Page 1 of the manga

Fifth for The 12 Days of Christmas: romance moments is Rose of Versailles. These 12 Days of Christmas posts aren’t in any particular order. I just choose moments that actually made me feel all warm and squishy inside. Be sure to check out animemiz’s scribbling’s and Unmei Kaihen and Eternal's blogs for more 12 Days posts and there are plenty of other ones out there as well! Oh and there might be spoilers about so read at your own risk. For the most part though I think I’ve kept things as spoiler free as possible. :)


This anime is old and charming. More people should watch this than be afraid of it because it doesn't have the pretty up to date animation of these days. Even the manga is charming in it's own way. Taking a look at the French Revolution this is not a story to pass up.



Who? Oscar and André


Oscar and André

Why they are adorable: What start out as a simple bond of friendship grows after many years together. They spent almost every moment together since childhood. André always had such great respect for Oscar and never bothered her with his true feelings till much much later on in life. After all there was more important things to worry about. Like saving France.

Oscar isn't your typical lady. She's a manly one. Ever since birth her father wanted a boy and was so disappointed when she wasn't one he demanded that she be raised like a man. With such tough standards to live up to Oscar prevailed in her manly attitude. This attracted not only men to her side but women as well. How André wasn't bothered by this (too much at least) is beyond me. He's a classy man and stood by his woman even though she didn't know she was his yet.

The complexity of their relationship was a pleasure to watch and I hope many others were as moved by their struggle as I was. If you haven't seen this amazing anime yet do so NOW!
