My Favorite Anime Characters!

Happy Sunday/Monday and welcome to another blog post! Today I wanted to share with you my favorite anime characters! I’ve shared my anime crushes and my anime girl crushes before but I haven’t shared just my favorite characters. Have you ever watched a show and there’s a character (or a few characters) that you just fall in love with? Not in love like towards a husbando or a wifey but you just can’t help but fall in love with for being awesome. So without further ado, here are my favorite anime characters! You will notice that some of the characters come from the same show so I guess that shows how awesome the anime is if there’s a lot of lovable characters.

Ikalgo from Hunter X Hunter

The first character is actually the character that made me want to do this blog post and that character is Ikalgo from Hunter X Hunter. Ikalgo is an octopus like Chimera Ant from the Chimera Ant Arc who used to be a officer but was turned over after having an encounter with one of the main characters Killua (don’t want to say any spoilers for anyone who hasn’t seen the series). I love Ikalgo so much because after joining the gang he is so loyal to Killua. Plus he’s the comedic relief in the season as well.

Seiya Kou from Sailor Moon Stars

How could I do an anime blog post and not have a Sailor Moon character in it?! One of my favorite seasons (maybe my favorite season of all time) of Sailor Moon would be the 5th and final season Sailor Stars. One of the reasons why I love this season is because this character. His name is Seiya Kou otherwise known as Sailor Star Fighter. I love him because he is so in love with Usagi and I am all for team Seiya and Usagi. He cares about her so much and would do anything for her and even though I do love Mamoru and Usagi I still would have loved to see Seiya and Usagi together.

Sasha Blouse from Attack on Titan

Now we are at that part where multiple characters come from the same show. And to start off is Sasha Blouse from Attack on Titan. She is a member of the Survey Corpse as well as Eren and the gang but is more of the laid back chilled characters. In season one you knew her as the one who loved food but in Season 2 you get to know more of her as a character which is great. If you have watched Attack on Titan you know how gory, serious and intense the show is so when there is a comic relief you cherish it because then you know the show is going to throw something intense your way. Sasha Blouse is that comic relief.

Hange Zoe from Attack on Titan

Another favorite character from Attack on Titan is squad leader Hange Zoe. I love her so much because she sees the Titans more than just predators. Whenever she gets the slightest chance to learn more about the Titans she jumps right into it with big eyes and excitement. With her influence, the Survey Corpse are not just trying to kill all Titans but learn about them as well.

Abel Nightroad from Trinity Blood

I’ve talked about this show before but if you haven’t read my last anime blog post where I first talked about Trinity Blood I just said that when I was little and first started watching anime I would sneak downstairs to the basement of the house that I grew up in to watch Trinity Blood and other animes because my parents wouldn’t let me stay up to watch it (I worded it wrong in the last post, I said in the other one that my parents wouldn’t let me watch it not because of the anime but because it was too late at night and I should be in bed, so my bad). Now when I was younger I was more into the Magical Girl genre with Sailor Moon and Cardcaptor Sakura then the darker let alone any anime about religion so why was I willing to sneak to the basement to watch Trinity Blood? The characters is one of the big reasons why I kept going back for more. One of the characters is the main character Abel Nightroad. Abel has two sides which makes me love him. He has the serious side when he’s on a mission and then at other times he’s a child stuck in an adult’s body, especially when it comes with finding food. Also when a friend is in need of someone Abel listens and is there for his friends. He makes a worthy good main character, worth enough to name my car after.

Ion Fortuna from Trinity Blood

Another character I love from Trinity Blood is Ion Fortuna. Ion is not only a Methuselah (aka a vampire according to humans) but the Earl of Memphis. How Ion’s, Abel’s and Esther Blanchett’s (I talked about her in the last anime blog post) path cross is because Ion was sent from Empress Augusta Vradica as a secret envoy to talk to Cardinal Caterina about taking a step toward peace between vampires and humans. The meeting was interrupted by an attack and then betrayed by his best friend after that Abel and Esther try to get him to Cardinal Caterina. I love Ion because in the few episodes he is you see him grow. Before everything happened Ion hated humans (or Terrans as the Methuselah would call them) who were outside of the Empire but after spending some time with Esther he has matured and have had a change of heart when it comes to Terrans. He even finds himself having feelings for Esther which I am totally down for.

Seth Nightlord from Trinity Blood

My last favorite character from Trinity Blood is Seth Nightlord. You first see Seth as this cute, cheery little town girl selling tea and helping Esther and Ion on there adventure but then she ends up revealing to the gang that she is the true Empress Augusta Vradica of the New Empire who has been in hiding in case of an assassination attempt (which spoiler alert, there was an attempt). We also find out that she is Abel’s youngest sibling (which I should have known, their personalities are similar) and that their older brother is up to no good (don’t want to spoil it). I love her so much because she is such a lovable character and just brings a smile to your face. Also who else loves the name Seth for a girl? I know I do.

Conclusion

So that’s all my favorite characters! I hope you all enjoyed this blog post as much as I did writing it! I just wanted to say before I end this blog post that these are my favorite characters personally and no way in any shape or form by sharing these characters are saying that they should be everyone’s favorite characters or that they are better than other characters, because there are some awesome characters out there in the anime world, I just have a special love for these individual characters for own reasons. Everyone has different opinions on characters and different reasons to love or favorite a certain character, these are just mine that I wanted to share. That being said I would love to hear what are your favorite characters and why you love them in the comments below as well as any ideas for more anime blogs. I hope you guys have a wonderful start of your week and I will see you soon in another blog post!

XOXO,

Back to School Tips// Little Update on Me!!

Hello and welcome to another blog post! I know it’s been a very VERY long time since I’ve written a blog post but a lot has happened this past month. So much that the stress of trying to keep up with my blog schedule was a stress I could not handle. I could get into more of it but things are still pretty stressful and a lot of things around me are changing all at once. And though life has knocked me down multiple times this past month at the end of the day I still have my dreams. After a long and hard day dealing with stress and my lack of mental health I still have the things in life that keep me happy and keep me working through it all. That is why as of today instead of sitting around and dealing with the stress, anxiety, and depression that is growing inside of me I want to get back into going after my dream so I thought I would first come here and say hello!

One of the things that happened this past month that was planned (no matter how much I didn’t want it to) was that I celebrated my 25th birthday! Yes, the big 25…the halfway point of saying goodbye to the last of my young years and hello to true adulthood. Now, normally people my age are out of college and starting adulthood with the job of their dreams. If not working on their careers, they are getting married, or are already married and having a family. Or they have both their dream career and a family.

I am definitely not normal. As well all know well by now. I am neither working at my dream job or married and have a family of my own. I am slowly working my way through college by working a full-time job to pay for college all out of pocket with no help financially. Before I was emotionally stuck in the middle between feeling like I needed to get through college and start my career but now that I’m 25 the emotions of getting married and starting to have a family is now in the mix. All these emotions are very confusing and at times overwhelming.

So when life throws things my way all at once I have to put my college plan aside to get through it. I know I’m working my way and when I do finally reach those goals I will be debt free and a better place but right now it is hard for me mentally and emotionally because I watched my fellow classmates graduate and now I get to see all the stuff they accomplish while I feel like I am going nowhere.

Unfortunately, with everything going on, I couldn’t afford to take classes this fall semester, which makes me feel like I am once again taking a step back instead of forwards towards a better future.

So to try not to let all the emotions get to me (more than it already has) I thought it would be a fun idea to give some back to school tips to the readers who are going to school this semester! So without further ado and this long intro let’s get into the tips!

Study Hard!

This one is self-explanatory. You want to have fun but also remember that you are in school to get an education and learn something… so might as well do that while you are there!

Get plenty of sleep!

Sleep is very important. Without it, paying attention in class is a lot harder and you could miss out on important information that could be on an exam! Plus getting a good night’s rest sets you up for success and you wake up feeling ready for the day!

Set lots of alarms!

I was never a morning person (still as an adult I am still not) so it is always a good idea to set multiple alarms. If you don’t wake up to the first alarm, you’ll sooner or later wake up if you have multiple ones!

Do not get in the habit of getting to class late!

We are all human so being late is bound to happen to all of us. But if you make a habit of getting to class late, it could not only get in the way of your grades but can create worse habits down the line. So get in the habit of being on time first before getting in the habit of being late!

Get homework done/study for tests!

Speaking of getting in good habits, get in the habit of getting homework done right when you get home. I know homework is a pain and no one wants to do it but the sooner you get it done the more time you have to do other things!

Always write down due dates/test exam days!

You don’t want to be that person who forgot about the exam and is suddenly cramming in as much studying as they can before the test. Always keep a planner with you to stay organized with major due dates and exam days. A planner is also useful for writing down events or a work schedule if you add on a part time job.

Have confidence while taking exams!

Unless you forgot about the exam and crammed everything at the end if you took the time to study for an exam have confidence going into the exam! I know test taking was always the hardest for me personally so from experience just knowing that you did your best to prepare for the exam can help get yourself through the test with confidence!

Keep your friends close!

Your friends are your biggest supporters. Not only are they there to have sleepovers and talk about boys but in a way, they can empower you to be better in school and in after school activities. Plus if you have a close friend in a class you don’t enjoy, that class can become a little more bearable knowing your friend is in the same class.

Make new friends!

Are you going to a new school this year? Or are you in a class that none of your friends are in? Now would be a great opportunity to make new friends! I know it’s a scary (even as an adult, I am scared to introducing myself let alone opening myself up to new people) but you could end up making a really good friend in the end!

Don’t let boys get in the way of schoolwork!…

SCHOOLWORK IS MORE IMPORTANT THAN THE CUTE BOY WHO SITS IN FRONT OF YOU! Don’t let them distract you from getting homework done and getting good grades. Yes, dating can be fun but if you get hurt your grades will pay for it as well.

…or get between friends!

There’s gonna be a time when you and one of your friends have a crush on the same guy. Don’t let the boy get in between friendships… boys don’t last that long but friendships last forever! I know from experience that if you let a boy between a friendship, you may lose that friend! If you want to keep that friend, choose fries before guys! (sorry, had to put that in ;D)

Don’t get too overwhelmed!

Things at a time can get a little overwhelming. From keeping grades up to having a social life, to participating in after school activities. Some even add a part time job to the mix. Staying busy is always a good thing because it keeps you out of trouble, but if it starts getting to the point that you can’t concentrate on school work or be taking care of yourself then maybe it is time to cut back on things. If you are in multiple extracurricular activities, which activity do you enjoy the most? If you cut back on activities you don’t enjoy as much you can concentrate on becoming better at the one you do enjoy the most. Plus that gives you more time to rest or have that social life you want, and keep your grades up as well!

Conclusion

Well, that’s all of the tips! In all honesty, the most important tip for going back to school is to work hard but don’t forget to have fun along the way. I hope you enjoyed this blog post; I always have fun with these types of posts and it lets me have time to forget about all the stresses and troubles of life.

Before I go I just wanted to thank every single one of you for being so patient with me this past month. I can’t promise that I’m going to be back to my schedule right away but what I can promise is that I love blogging and even if I take long breaks, I will never stop writing and never stop chasing after my dreams.

If you are new around here, did you know that I also have social media?! If you want to know what I do in my daily life or find another way to connect with me you can reach me on other platforms as well!

If the Sailor Scouts went to Hogwarts?!

Happy Tuesday/Wednesday and welcome to another blog post! I honestly really don’t know how I got the idea for this post but I honestly just wanted to do a fun post after doing two very long (and awesome) posts and my tired brain got to thinking what if the Sailor Scouts went to Hogwarts? And if they did, what house would they be in? So if you are like me and are wondering what the answers these are you came to the right place, so let’s get right into it!

Side note I am only doing the Sailor Scouts (Inner and Outer Sensi… so yes for all you Neptune and Uranus lovers) but that’s it. I would love to do all the characters but that would just take too long, and I need to take a break from these long posts (my fingers hurt!)

Usagi Tsukino aka Sailor Moon

So out of all of them would you believe that Usagi was the hardest out of all of them to put in a house? She’s kind of a blonde so she isn’t a Ravenclaw and she’s not as resourceful and cunning like a Slytherin so that leaves it left with Gryffindor and Hufflepuff. After thinking about it for a while I finally decided on Usagi being a Gryffindor with her bravery and chivalry. So Congrats Sailor Moon, you are house Gryffindor!

Ami Mizuno aka Sailor Mercury

Complete opposite from Usagi I knew right away that Ami would be put in house Ravenclaw. In class Ami would always to be the first to answer questions and spend her breaks reading books about wizard history, potions and spells. Ami would definitely be the smartest witch of her time I would say! Congrats Sailor Mercury, you are house Ravenclaw!

Makoto Kino aka Sailor Jupiter

With her strong ambition and good use of resourcefulness Makoto would be in house Slytherin, and not because she is evil like some classmates may think she is, because she is absolutely not! House Slytherin should be happy to have Makoto’s awesome cooking skills, there’s always a cooking party in Slytherin! Congrats Sailor Jupiter, you are house Slytherin!

Rei Hino aka Sailor Mars

Rei was easy to sort in a house and that is house Gryffindor. She is very brave and out of everything she has a lot of nerve… especially when it comes to bugging Usagi! But her bravery triumphs over everything and that has earned her in house Gryffindor. So congrats Sailor Mars, you are house Gryffindor!

Minako Aino aka Sailor Venus

I know I had a special spot in my heart for Minako when I was watching Sailor Moon because just like me, Minako is house Hufflepuff! **GO TEAM HUFFLEPUFF!!** She’s very loyal, patient and yellow is just her color! (I’ve kind of noticed that with a lot of the scouts…hmmm) Maybe with Minako’s skills, Hufflepuff will finally win a Quidditch World Cup? Maybe? Congrats Sailor Venus, you are house Hufflepuff!

Chibiusa Tsukino aka Sailor Chibi Moon

So just like her mother, when Chibiusa grows up she would of course be in house Gryffindor! At such a young age she has already shown bravery and chivalry in and out of being a sailor scout and that has definitely given her a spot in Gryffindor. So congrats Sailor Mini Moon you are house Gryffindor!

And now time for the Outer Senshi!

Michiru Kaioh aka Sailor Neptune

 

So as much as I wanted to put Michiru in house Hufflepuff (for her loyalty and dedication to a certain other scout) but her intelligence and knowledge has put her in house Ravenclaw! She may not be as smart as Ami but her love for the violin and wit has landed her a spot in Ravenclaw! Congrats Sailor Neptune, you are house Ravenclaw!

Haruka Tenoh aka Sailor Uranus

Who would I be if I didn’t put Haruka in house Slytherin?! His cunning personality and ambition in fights has landed him/her a spot in house Slytherin! Also, can we picture Haruka in a Slytherin uniform?! I would not mind seeing that. So congrats Sailor Uranus, you are house Slytherin!

Setsuna Meiou aka Sailor Pluto

Because of her loyalty to Chibiusa and the Royal Kingdom, Setsuna is joining house Hufflepuff! **GO TEAM HUFFLEPUFF!** I can never get over how loyal she is and is so good towards the Royal family, they know they are safe with Sailor Pluto around! So congrats Sailor Pluto, you are house Hufflepuff!

Hotaru Tomoe aka Sailor Saturn

And last but not least, we have Hotaru! Now she is a hard one to decide but I think that she would be in house Slytherin, and not because she was evil for a little bit. She is very cunning even at such a young age and is a very powerful girl, she would be a very powerful witch. So congrats Sailor Saturn, you are house Slytherin!

BONUS!! Mamoru Chiba aka Tuxedo Mask

So of course I couldn’t do the Sailor Scouts without doing the main man Mamoru! As much I would love love love to put Mamoru with Team Hufflepuff because of his loyalty and patience (and with Usagi, you need patience) I have to put him in Gryffindor for his bravery! That man is so brave, he always puts a brave foot in every battle, because do you know how many times he has saved Usagi without even thinking about it?! So congrats Tuxedo Mask, you are Gryffindor!

Conclusion

So that’s it! What do you guys think? Do you think I sorted them in the right houses? Let me know what you guys think in the comments below! This idea was the result of a tired brain but in all honesty I had so much fun doing it! If you want me to do other Sailor Moon characters or any other animes (I have a few shows in mind) just let me know in the comments below as well as any other ideas for posts! I hope you guys enjoyed this post as much as I enjoyed making it and I will see you guys on the next post!

If you aren’t following me on social media you should totally do it for first updates on new blog posts and random posts about me and my life!

You guys are great and I hope you have a great week!

My Spring/Summer Purse//What’s In My Bag??

Happy Tuesday/Wednesday and welcome to another blog post! I’ve wanted to do this post for a while and since we are in the beginning of summer (it’s already so hot here already) I thought it would be a great time to let you know what’s in my Spring/Summer Purse! Now I will be honest, a bunch of stuff in my purse you have already seen in other blog posts, but hey I love these items so much! So let’s get right into!

The Purse

First let’s talk about the purse. The purse is a mini backpack from Forever 21. The reason why I wanted a mini backpack this time around is because the cross body purse I was using before was starting to hurt my shoulder from the weight of carrying all the stuff on one shoulder. So I thought “Why don’t I just even out the pain from just one shoulder to both shoulders?!”. I knew what I was looking for, I wanted to shy away from the usual black or grey purses I normally get and get a pastel pink mini backpack. When I went in to my nearest Forever 21 they had the style of mini backpacks I wanted but not in pastel pink. So I ordered it online and in a few days top it was in my hands. I was nervous since I was ordering it online that it wouldn’t fit all my stuff but I am happy and relieved to say that it all fit! I love how it is very lightweight (even with all my stuff in it) and it is perfect for carrying a lot or a little during the spring and summertime. I’ve had it for about 2 months now and it is still in good shape, so I hope it lasts a while!

The Pin that Started it All

I knew that I wanted a new purse right when I started to get really sick of feeling pain in my shoulder, but I didn’t know what purse I wanted. Then I was shopping at Hot Topic and I found this Sailor Moon Transformation Brooch pin and I knew right then and there that I needed a pastel pink mini backpack to put this pin on. Now I did have a hard time getting this pin on (with the fake leather and loose pin back) to the point that I almost gave up on it, but I’m glad that I didn’t because it turned out so well! I always get compliments on it and asked if it is a sailor moon purse (like if the pin came with the purse) but nope… I put it together myself and I am so proud of it!

Sailor Moon Keychain

Since I was going with a Sailor Moon themed purse I wanted a keychain that would go with it so when I found the brand Sugarbones on Instagram I knew they would be perfect. Sugarbones is an artist/designer based in Canada who creates pins, patches and art prints of things that supports girl power, fighting crime and the forces of evil while looking completely kawaii :)… and Sailor Moon is one of those things. You will definately see more of Sugar Bone on my website/social media, I love what she does and I can’t wait to see what else she creates! She recently designed two Sailor Moon inspired keychain souvenirs, one from Crystal Tokyo (which is a beautiful pastel blue with pastel pink roses around it) or the Negaverse (aka Dark Kingdom) that is a beautiful purplish maroonish color with red roses around it. I was originally going to get the Crystal Tokyo keychain because of the matching pastel colors, but the dark/black loving half of me has always connected with the Dark Kingdom, so I chose that one. With this keychain dangling, if you can’t find me, just listen for a jingle from this keychain and you’ll find me!

Car Keys… aka more Sailor Moon Keychains

 

First let’s start with what is in my front little pocket. Now you don’t need to see my car keys because you know what car keys look like, but you haven’t seen the keychains that are on them! Now I had these keychains long before I had the idea for the Sailor Moon mini backpack but it’s kind of cool how it all turned out like it.

The first two has an old keychain and a new keychain. The Luna cupcake is from a dear friend who saw it while shopping and thought of me, which was so sweet of her, so thank you Tina! The bow with the little moon stick is pretty new, I found it at Barnes and Noble when I was shopping with one of my dear friends.

The last two are my two favorite keychains (not saying I don’t love the other two). The moon stick is my oldest keychain (as you can tell with how dirty and old it is), it is actually one of the first ever sailor moon items I’ve ever had. The other keychain is from of my bestest friends ever. Last year around this time her and her family went to the zoo in which even though I was invited I couldn’t go. So she surprised me with this keychain with an adorable elephant on it! Now that I have become a shift supervisor and don’t work at the same store anymore I cherish the keychain even more. Sailor Moon keychains may come and go but I will always keep and cherish this item of friendship.

Cosmic Heart Compact Mirror

If you haven’t noticed yet, but I love shopping at Hot Topic. They have a bunch of great anime items, band tees, and some unexpected great finds, this item is one of those great finds. I have been meaning to try to find a compact mirror because I am sick of pulling out my phone camera when reapplying lipstick. It just so happened that it was a Sailor Moon one that I found! And before anyone asks, unfortunately no the heart on the inside doesn’t do anything when you push it. Believe me I’ve tried, millions of times.

Chapstick and Lipstick of Choice

I also carry around my favorite chapstick and the lipstick I wore the day before. My go to chapstick is “Nivea Smoothness Broad Spectrum SPF 15 Sunscreen Lip Care”. It is getting hotter by the day and the last thing I want is to have sun burnt lips (especially when I wear liquid matte lipstick quite often) so this chapstick keeps my lips feeling moisturized and protected from the sun. The lipstick is “LimeCrime Bloodmoon Liquid Matte Velvetine”. This is currently my favorite color. It gives me a dark red matte lip that makes my outfit from normal to dark and sexy.

Things You’ve Already Seen

Sunglasses from Target

Sailor Moon Coin Purse from Hot Topic

The funny thing about this now is that I didn’t realize it until I grabbed the coin purse out of my bag that I almost have one of each of Sailor Moon’s transformation brooches. I just need one of Crisis Moon and Eternal Moon than I have all of them!

Now back to more things you haven’t seen yet!

Totoro Wallet

Recently my sister, mom and I went to the CelebrAsian festival downtown to celebrate everything in the Asian culture! Not only was it fun cause I got to have some well needed family time but I got to eat some delicious Filipino food (my mom’s side of the family is Filipino) and check out all things Asian! While we were there I got a really cute Totoro makeup bag and this adorable Totoro wallet! The colors go well with the pastel theme I have going on with my purse, and even though you can’t see it there’s a cute dangly tossle on the side of it. Plus since it folds, it fits so much easier than the big wallet I was using before.

Flamingo Notebook

I found this great notebook at World Market. I got this back in January just in time for the start of my new promotion, so it was great timing on my part. All I use it is for work but I really don’t know what I would do without it. Just having it and writing the list of things I have to do helps me get through the shift.

Glasses Cleaner Kit

Another thing I cannot live without is this glasses cleaner kit from Target. In the kit it comes with a cleaning spray, cleaning cloth and pre-moistened cloths. I love this kit because it is small enough to be on the go but does the job perfectly. My friends who doesn’t wear glasses always tease me when I pull it out of my purse, but the friends who do have glasses always ask me to clean their glasses as well.

Portable Charger

Another strange but useful item I keep in my purse is a portable charger I got from Target. I originally got it for the little day trips I have been having with my family and friends (going to be useful for a small weekend trip I’m planning this summer) but with the shortage of charging cords in my apartment, I’ve been gravitating towards using this more. Plus it’s rose gold so it goes perfect with pretty much everything I have!

Cinnamon Gum

The last but not least is just a pack of gum to hide my coffee breath. There’s not much more to say than that ha.

Conclusion

So that’s it! I hope you enjoyed this “What’s in My Bag?” post. What weird but useful things do you have in your purse? If you have any ideas for a blog post, as always you can comment down below! I also linked somewhere in this post another blog post talking about my pastel pink collection so if you haven’t read that one yet, there’s that link there! I hope you all have a great rest of your week and I will see you on Sunday!

My Favorite Anime Openings!

Happy Tuesday/Wednesday and welcome to a better late than never blog post! –>new saying for late posts tehe :D. Ever since I did my anime tag a couple of weeks ago, I’ve been inspired to do more posts like that. Last week I let you know my Top 10 Anime Crushes, and this week we’re going to talk about my favorite anime openings!

Ah anime openings, the gateway to an anime. Have you ever had chills listening to an anime opening song? Have you ever watched a full anime and have never skipped through the anime opening sequence? Have you ever listened to an anime opening song and craved more so you look up the full version of a song? I am here today to share the anime openings that I have answered yes to these questions. Like or dislike the anime, let’s totally ok! But for now let’s put those feelings aside and just appreciate the wonderful mix of songs and anime opening sequences…so let’s get started!

Bleach OP1 “Asterisk” by Orange Range

Bleach has a lot of great openings, but the one that will always come to mind is the opening for the first season. Right when it starts I get all of the feels of when I first got into anime when I was younger. I love seeing all the characters as well as the wide range of colors used in each sequence.

Sailor Moon English Opening by Nicole and Brynne Price

Speaking of bringing all the feels back, in my “Anime Tag” Post, this was the answer to my favorite anime opening post question, so of course I had to mention it here. I remember looking forward to watching Sailor Moon when I was little and I was always the one to sing along to the song. Even now as an adult, if I even hear the words close to any of the lyrics I burst out in singing.

Sword Art Online “Crossing Field” by LiSA

This is one of the anime openings that I can’t skip through the anime opening, and that includes the second time I rewatched the anime. I love how in the sequence it shows the characters Kirito and Asuna as two separates but by the end they were brought together by the game.

High School of the Dead Theme Song by Kisida Kyodan and The Akebosi Rockets

There is so much I could say about this anime, but this post is just for the anime openings so that’s where I’ll try to keep it to. No matter how I feel about this anime, I love love love the opening. The beat is great and just keeps growing until you get major chills down your back during the chorus…literally every time I listen to it I get chills. This is one of the songs I listen to when I need to get a blog post out because the upbeat gets me pumped about writing.

Dragonaut the Resonance “Perfect Blue” by Jazzin’ Park

First of all, if you haven’t seen this anime you have to watch it so good! Second, this is the anime opening that I craved more and had to listen to the full version. I love how the sequence shows each character that if it’s your first time watching, you feel like you already know a little about them just by watching the opening. And that’s what anime openings are for, they are gateways to the anime, so it matches perfectly!

Attack on Titan “Guren no Yumiya” by Linked Horizon

So I know in my “Anime Tag” post I said that the “Sailor Moon Theme” is my favorite anime opening, and while yes it is number one in the feels, but if we are talking about the actual anime opening Attack on Titan would be number one. Like oh my gosh… usually I get chills during the chorus like during “High School of the Dead” but right on the get go I was getting chills and was on my feet for the whole opening. And it’s not just chills the first time type of anime opening. Like I’m that type of person that when I find a song I like (anime opening or not) I put it on repeat. With this anime I can listen to it multiple times and still get chills non stop. With this anime opening it is also hard to try to work on something like a blog post and not get distracted by watching the opening as well because there is so much awesomeness going on with the anime sequence as well. Especially the last couple of seconds… this makes me more and more excited for the next season!!!

And that was the last one! I hope you guys enjoyed this blog post! I’m still very inspired to do more post like these and if you have any ideas for my “Favorite Anime…” or “Top 10 Anime…” let me know! Also let me know what are your favorite anime openings as well! I’m always looking for new anime openings to enjoy, even if I haven’t seen or enjoy the anime!
