Three random things about me

I was abandoned in a forest.

During a children’s birthday party of  my across the street neighbours son of my age we went out to the local forest to play games. His cousin  and the girl living next door to him ..also our age was sick and could not come. Other than us there were mostly boys most of them I knew through the absent girl.  So I wasn’t feeling that included…At one point we decided to play hide and seek and I found a great hiding spot .. no one would find me there! Unfortunately no one was even looking for me…

It had been quite for a while when I got impatient and I found the group to be completely gone. It was a prank the boys pulled on me. I was like 7 maybe even just 6 so mobile phones weren’t a thing yet. The boys dad noticed all his friends were there and  and in the moment forgot about me. He only realised on his way home. He went back to the forest to find me but I wasn’t there anymore. Luckily this happend during a school holiday and knew Dad’s company was close to the forest. Keeping hidden in the forest line.. from bad people.. I walked across the edge of the forest way up to where my father worked. There I walked in an began crying like crazy. Weirdly not before!

I see dead people

Yes , I might just be crazy but I had a few experiences with the “macabre” that have been unexplainable. How did it happen?! Well it all started in my last serious relationship. A bit before Christmas 2012.  I recently passed out according to my ex and they called an ambulance. Other than that things were moving fine. We were moving in together in a new home near a graveyard. My ex told me they could sometimes see people and described a few. I never took it serious. Than one weekend while I was home alone I saw a man standing in my bathroom..vividly. A man with ginger hair and a beard, but a very weak jaw and some kind of work sweater.. like an old fashioned postal office worker.  (Like at least 10 years ago) I blinked and he was gone.

I did not think much of it .. probably got spooked by the dog walking around. However about a month later our front door got blocked some snow that fell of the roof,so we had to leave trough our little back exit onto the graveyard.  Due to ice patches I took a route I never took before going all the way around. There I encountered a grave ..that i never saw before featuring a picture of that same man I saw in the bathroom. After some investigation I got to hear that he used to be a postal worker that got in a fatal accident one of of the more dangerous corners in town.  Since having that experience I had other encounters. I’ve saw a woman about my age named Melanie in a AiRbnB we stayed in. I asked the owner upon checking out if they knew someone named like that.. it got awkward.

Now I do not use this thing neither do I play with an Ouija-Board or anything. On occasion I sense an energy , in rare I see a person and even more rarely I can hear them as well. Perhaps I absorbed the information somewhere subconsciously, perhaps there is actually stuff out there. No matter if they are real or not I did see dead people!

I am going to play a lot of Animal Crossing New Horizon

I always wanted to play this series but never really was able to! I either lacked the cash at the time or it was really hard to buy in my local stores. Okay I loaned the game briefly of a friend to confirm this is indeed a game for me but after checking out that it is indeed cute and fun and super creative.  I gave my friend the game back and thanked her for allowing me to check it out and went on to buy New Leaf.. which of course was sold out. I tried a few more stores but it just did not get sold in a lot of places.. and other were going bankrupt. So I missed my copy..later I tried to loan it again from my friend asking If I could start my own game.. but she had sold it.. since I gave it back to her so quickly she thought I disliked it too or I would have given it for free.

New Horizons will be the first time I can commit to this game with a fully functional console and me having plenty of time to sink into it. I am not sure yet if I want to play on the Southern of Northern Hemisphere.. but I am sure as heck that that new bear is gonna be on this Island of mine! You can be sure to read about my island adventures on my blog as well. Which makes for a nice bridge to the questions!

Fred’s Questions

What do you blog about besides anime? 

Well …. uhm.. I basically marked that as categories. For those who read my posts from outside the WordPress Reader. I tend to focus on games, movies, anime, pokemon and myself or my thoughts.  Apparently I now also about what I blog about. Love and positivity are themes I try to adhere too! So there is that.

Did he gather the infinity stones?

What Anime did you drop and then reluctantly pick up only to decide later that it was good?

I dropped Code Geass once after the third episode. After picking it back up again and getting halfway through the second season I still concluded it was not for me. I tried to pick up Lucky Star a few times but I just could not get into it. There are only two anime ever which I would say could apply. Elfen Lied I dropped after the second episode and upon revisiting it I had a fairly good time. It’s a good show, though nowadays it doesn’t really impress me as much anymore. The first time around I did not know what to do with the dramatic tonal shift between the first two episodes yet as I learned more about anime I got to appreciate that.

The only anime that I ever have absolutely loved after initially dropping it was Steins Gate. Those first few episodes aren’t all that good on themselves and only get a pay off in later episodes. My friends swore it would get good.. but they said the same thing about Geass. and I do not like it. Yet with this one I fell in love.  I cherished this show when things finally began to unfold properly and now this one remains in my top 10 favorites.

I did not want to close my eyes watching this show the second time around?!

What Anime had the wrong protagonist?

There are a fair few. I tend to care more about secondary characters in general. Vegeta, Gohan and Piccolo are all much better characters than Goku or at least  characters I route for more! I’d rather see Sword Art online be completely about Asuna rather than Kirito..a character whom I truly dislike. Bleach could have worked just as well if not better with Toshiro as a main character. Joey Wheeler having to learn the game from scratch could have been more interesting to follow as Yu-gi Muto. Main anime characters can get a bit of a flat development arc especially when they need to get, or are , powerfull.  So secondary characters that need to work harder get a better character arc. Joey Wheeler grew more as Yugi in terms of understanding the game and figuring out his role in everything. Vegeta grew into a loving father who had settled down who came to accept his limitations and move on, there was more to live for than just being strong.

Is there an anime that would actively get better by choosing a different main character… While not a bad anime I feel Mirai Nikki would have greatly benefited from having a less whiny protagonist as Yuki. Without spoiling to much I think following Yuno from her perspective.. in a similar way to School Live..again no spoilers if you don’t know.. would have created a much more compelling narrative. At first we just see a girl with a massive crush but slowly we take a peek under the hood.  The big reveal of this show felt “shoehorned in , with only the benefit of more Murmur” The twist ending could have felt less abrupt and been teased through some disjointed memories or some weird ponderings. It would also give Yuki a chance to be cooler than he actually was as we could look at him through Yuno’s eyes.
It would give this series a sense of dementia and insanity. If done well it could truely have made this a legendary show!…Very good still but to me it’s weakest point was easily Yuki.

Hey Yuuuuki! I got a gift for you! It’s shiny!.. For now!

Where do you see yourself in 10 years?

Honestly I might be dead by then?! Even when not considering my current situation I have a weak heart so who knows?! strive to be the person I become not the person I want to be.
Let me explain what I mean, little Pinkie wanted to take over her dads company and be a graphic designer. Had I actively chosen to pursue that as a study I would …probably still be where I am know..but also out of luck. The businesses went Bankrupt. Wiser Pinkie wanted to be a lawyer but my more emotional side noticed I lacked the distance I needed to have to do this job well.  My heart became weaker and I had a mental breakdown over my own limitations compared to what is asked of “normal” people and how I was perceived and as a result I can’t work currently/ Had I plotted my course to strictly that would have felt as a failure.

Life’s too short to only stroll down a single path. Sure if we walk straight we are more effective and accepted by society which is also important to most. That’s what I tried to do with my life, before it all stopped including my heart. When I came back, I felt depressed and broken. You know that they say your life flashes before your eyes before you die?! It was kinda true?! When I woke up I felt overwhelmed with fear. What I saw wasn’t really my choices. What i had done before was still to be normal, to stick to society and while that is fine, it made me feel that I had never lived. Never lived for myself at least. So now I live without a plan. Pinkie does what Pinkie feels like and we will see where it gets me.

Looking into the future is like the yellow brick road! Sure if I follow it I can get to Oz that everone seems to love so..but if I wonder around I might find something no one has ever seen. If I travel to Oz people can say I succeeded in our goal and congratulate me.. or I could die on the road and people say I failed.When I wander around and live day by day people may think I am one of those losers that isnt travelling to Oz like normal people.. but should that day come that I do not wake up..no one can say I failed in what I set out to do.

Where am I? Probably somehwere at either side othe rainbow!

Who would win in a fight between Naruto and Luffy

Let’s begin to say that Naruto COULD win.. because so many of his battles have been fought on or near water. Luffy would be hit at one point by one of the many Shadow clones and drown. However Luffy would definitely win in a straight up arena match.  For Luffy hasn’t stopped growing yet. While Naruto has taken down.. kind of .. gods and had less major losses than Luffy did it feels that in a fight between wind and rubber the latter would win.

Naruto’s Chakra is also more a finite resource than Luffy’s Devil Fruit Powers. Luffy has endured more injuries and has his Haki too boost his defences up even more. So he can both take more injuries while also able to sustain less. Now that being said I am using kid Naruto as a model here. Adult Naruto became more cautious and might not burn out as soon.. but I am going to assume we pit these characters in their main form.
Kuma has abilities that work in a similar way as Naruto..using air and such. Since Luffy already took a loss to him, and took it seriously one would think he came up with counters for it , knowing how his fighting style is. Naruto never really had an opponent to similar to how Luffy works and would have a though time to overcome the straw hat’s superior range.

  1. Abandoned in the forest. Sounds exactly like what would have happened to me in that instance. I dropped Stein’s Gate. Maybe I’ll skip the first eps. and see how it works.

    “Natsume’s Book of Friends” and “3 Gatsu no Lion” are both anime I dropped and picked up later only to love them. Natsume felt boring and 3 Gatsu pushed all my depression buttons. I went back to them later because of all the glowing reviews. I figured I must have missed something.

    1. I still need to watch Natsume, i’ll get to it when I get to it but will push beyond the first episodes!

      I get why you dropped Steins Gate but like I said these first episodes come back later and then finally work.

  2. It is interesting that you note that Okoto Enigma hasn’t posted… could it be that the marketing department is closed for… “global sniffles” reasons?

    It’s notable that if you take Okoto Enigma’s Instagram handle “enigma_oke” and translate the last part “oke” it into Japanese it becomes “bucket”, as with most Japanese things, there is a traditional craft that surrounds it! But that’s not important now. 😛

    Their handle can be “Enigma Bucket”… a container of enigma?

    Mysteries upon Enigma’s upon buckets, or… エニグマバケット (Enigumabaketto).

    Perhaps someone should nominate Enigma and see if the bucket is a bottomless pit or a two way portal?

  3. Congrats on the award. It was really fun reading your answers. I never thought about who would win between Luffy and Naruto. This could go either way and depends on what version of the characters we’re talking about.
