31 thoughts on “I’m Mysterious… The Good Kind Of Mysterious I Hope”

  1. Hello! I’ll answer my nomination here in the comments if that’s okay… I really enjoy these things but tend to avoid doing too many of them on the main page of my site due to its structure and the way I like to keep things laid out. It’s not by any means that I don’t want to participate, just wanted to make that clear! 🙂

    Okay then.

    THREE THINGS ABOUT MYSELF:
    – I am a fully qualified classroom teacher, but after my experiences working in that field for a few years I have absolutely no desire to return to it ever again!
    – I am quite a bit older than the majority of people I seem to interact with online; I’m 36 years old, and my wife and I have found that since our respective friends have started having families and stuff (neither of us want to have kids), we’ve started naturally gravitating towards slightly younger people for socialising. Also babies irritate the crap out of both of us.
    – I’ve found myself drifting through “friendship groups” quite a bit over the years, but I’m pretty sure my favourite group of people to “hang out with” is the current group of anime enthusiasts and bloggers I identify most strongly with right now. (That almost certainly includes you if you’re reading this!)

    And onto the questions, then!

    WHAT IS THE THING YOU NEVER GET TIRED OF DOING?
    Playing video games. It’s such an incredibly diverse, inspiring medium that I never, ever get bored of it. There’s always something to entertain me, whatever mood I’m in. If I want high drama, I have games that cater to that. If I want to cry and sob like a little child, I have games that cater to that. If I want to scare myself silly, I have games that cater to that. And if I just want to test my skill in some abstract way, I have games that cater to that, too! I’ll never run out of games to play, and I will continue to champion them as the wonderful form of entertainment they are for as long as I live.

    IF SOMEONE YOU LOVED HAD A CURE FOR A DISEASE WHICH WAS DESTROYING HUMANITY, BUT THE TESTS TO DEVELOP A VACCINE WOULD KILL HER, WOULD YOU CONSENT AND LET HER GO OR WOULD YOU DO EVERYTHING IN YOUR POWER TO SAVE HER?
    I’d consent. Reluctantly. And I’d cry a lot. But I’d consent. Given the opportunity to do “the right thing” I generally weigh up the options and end up doing “the right thing”, even if it hurts to do so. Tragedy can make you stronger and even inspire you to do great things after the fact; losing someone under these circumstances would almost certainly leave me wanting to live the rest of my life so that their sacrifice wasn’t in vain afterwards.

    WHAT’S YOUR FAVOURITE SWEET FROM YOUR COUNTRY?
    If we’re talking “sweets” in terms of chocolate bars, anything involving Cadbury chocolate is hard to beat. I’m particularly partial to the Double Decker, which incorporates chocolate, nougat and crunchy biscuity bits, and is also a leading contributor to me being fat. If we’re talking “sweets” in the way anime characters use it (which tends to mean “cake”) then I think I’d have to go with the custard slice. Which is also a leading contributor to me being fat.

    WHAT IS THE TYPE OF MONSTER YOU LIKE THE BEST AND THE LEAST?
    I love monster designs with a degree of eroticism about them, so I’m all about things like lamias and succubi and suchlike. I think they’re interesting because their sexuality makes them incredibly compelling, tempting and enormously dangerous… plus we get shows like Monster Musume that shows “monstrous” characters like this can have a fun side, too. In that sense, well, Miia is probably the monster I like the best. 🙂

    As for least… hmm. I think it would have to be one of the more “generic” fantasy monsters like orcs. I just think they’re boring. I’m not generally a big fan of the “tribal” aesthetic generally, whether it’s with regard to heroes or villains, and orcs tend to encapsulate all the things that I find least interesting. You’re in a fantasy world and the best you can come up with is an ugly illiterate humanoid with anger management issues? Nah. Do better!

    WHAT SONG WOULD YOU CHOOSE IF YOU COULD ONLY HEAR THAT ONE FOR THE REST OF YOUR LIFE?

    And finally then…

    MY BEST POST
    I always end up extremely proud of anything that requires extensive research and “further reading” to put together, and I have a number of good examples throughout my site (search for anything with “Introduction and History” or “Historical Context” in its title!). I think one of my favourites is actually one of my most recent ones, on the subject of Xenoblade Chronicles 2: https://moegamer.net/2018/03/01/xenoblade-chronicles-2-introduction-and-history/

    My all-time favourite, though, is this one, where I researched Shinto myths and legends prior to delving into the visual novel Ne No Kami: The Two Princess Knights of Kyoto. https://moegamer.net/2017/03/08/ne-no-kami-exploring-shinto-myths-and-legends/

    Thanks again for the nomination 😀

    1. You can answer in the ways you want! 😀
      I think gaming is also the thing I can do non-stop without getting bored ahah 😛 It’s like you say, there is always a game for my state of mind that is able to entertain me no matter the mood I am having! 😀
      Yeah… I think I would also consent… It’s a tough decision, but it is the life of humanity we are talking about and the person is willing to do it xD
      Succubi is one of mine favorite too! Like you said, It’s about being sexy and deadly at the same time! 😛 And I also hate orcs ahahah But I see it more as a faction and not “monsters” xD Depends on the game you are playing
      Thank you for answering and I will have to check those two posts of you eheh

    2. This was interesting to pop up among the comments, I simply had to read it! Also the three thing about yourself. I can relate to the first two facts. N.1 being a teacher myself, its not something I plan on staying…at all 😂
      N.2 being 30+ and in the same situation where my partner and I do not want to have any kids. Our friends are older (40+) but have the same feeling about not wanting children.
      Getting our own parents to accept this was quite a hassle and I know they’re still hoping we’ll change our minds one day 😅

    1. Thank you so much! 😀 Yeah, I try to say things interesting about myself, but the truth is, since it IS my life, I normally just see it as normal and not that interesting to others xD

    1. Yeah, completely agree with you… At the moment you receive so low income from the ads that for you to strive you have to create a brand around yourself and create incone doing other things such as sponsors (and for that you already need to have a fan base). And let’s face the huge Youtubers around or started when the Youtube basically started or came out from Vine and in there they were also one of the first coming around 😛
