What anime are you watching now?
The current playlist is as follows:
Itazura na Kiss
But these are in the low 20s and will end shortly, so it's going to change. I'm also slowly making my way through the first box set of Yawara!, of course.
What is your favourite time to watch?
Whenever I want to. Any time is anime time if I'm in the mood for it.
And your favourite place?
My rocking chair in my room, about 5 feet from the 35" TV.
Who is your favourite auteur?
My favorite artist is Rumiko Takahashi. But Wataru Yoshizumi is a close second, followed by Kosuke Fujishima. (WTF is "auteur" superior to "author"? Why do intellectual types insist on using stupid words that have reasonable equivalents, anyway?)
Your favourite OST?
Anything by Kenji Kawai. But the Oh! My Goddess! OVA OSTs are perfect.
What is the most difficult anime you’ve ever watched?
If it's "difficult", I don't watch it. I'm watching the stuff to be entertained, not to have to work at it. But I did watch Akira twice, before I knew better.
But Yume Tsukai sucked a lot, so that was technically "difficult"--it was certainly difficult to watch.
What was the first anime you remember watching?
Speed Racer, 1972. I am an old-school anime fan. And after that, Star Blazers when I was in junior high.
Do you have a comfort show that you re-watch?
I used to watch the Tenchi Muyo! OVAs--and later the first TV season--as a "comfort" series. But with the rise of digisubs I find I don't have time to re-watch a lot of stuff.
What is the most erotic anime you’ve watched?
The two End of Summer OVAs. Good story, though. (And Magical Twilight, too, come to think of it.)
Which classic should you have watched?
Galaxy Express 999. Not really "classic", but Leiji Matsumoto is one of the legends of SF manga and anime; his work led to Star Blazers among others.
Which series did you never want to end?
Seto no Hanayome, Umisho, Bamboo Blade, and Code E.
What is your most overrated anime?
Neon Genesis Evangelion, hands down.
Which character could you have an affair with?
There's pretty much a harem, but I'd start with Lum, given the opportunity.
Who is your favourite character?
I can't even begin to answer this question. Every time I think of an answer, I think of someone else who I like just as much if not more. So I'll say "Mr. Fujisawa" from El Hazard, because I wore a Fujisawa costume to AnimeIowa once.
Which character do you most dislike?
I'll go with "Macho" Matsuo from High School Girls because he's the first one I thought of, and he's pretty disgusting and clueless.
Which character do you identify with most?
Tsukushi Makino from Hana Yori Dango. My life in high school was hellish. She coped better than I did, though.
Which anime changed your life?
Ranma 1/2. That's the one that got me addicted to anime. Otherwise I might have a life.
