Hey Hey all you wonderful Heroes, Travelers, and Wandering NPCs! It’s Friday and that means another Fangirl Moments post, the series where I fangirl over anything and everything, from anime and manga to movies and books, everything up for grabs!
Last week, I covered the animated Netflix series, Voltron: Legendary Defender, so if you missed that post definitely check it out!! This week I’m doing things a little differently, instead of covering a form of media, I’m going to talk about a specific character and instead of doing a character analysis, I’m going to do a Top 5 list, because *whispers* I’m writing this from my work computer and my supervisor is coming into the office to shadow…. and this post is kind of time sensitive.
So today, November 17th is the birthday of my favorite Haikyuu captain, Kuroo “Bedhead” Tetsurou, and in honor of his b-day, I’m going to write about the Top 5 Reasons Kuroo is the Captain of My Heart!! Okay that sounded way better in my head…
Hey Hey all you wonderful Heroes, Travelers, and Wandering NPCs!! As most of you already know, I crochet and back in July I decided to open up an Etsy store to sell my various crochet projects. While I specialize in faceless amigurumi dolls, I can make a wide range of crochet items, from hats and scarves to afghans to keychains and knickknacks., I’ll try anything at least once….
Since crocheting takes up a large part of my free time, I haven’t been as active on WordPress as I once was (I’m working on finding a balance, I promise), so I wanted to integrate my crocheting into this blog and the best way I could think of to do that was with a brand new post series…. yeah, I know, there are plenty of those here as it is… but, for my sanity (and the good of the universe), this series won’t follow a strict schedule. So, some weeks there will be one or two Crocheting While Otaku posts and other weeks, there won’t be any, it’ll depend on my moods… Also, this won’t be anything fancy, just a bit of insight into my crocheting process and some of the projects I’m currently working on. From time to time, I’ll go back and spotlight one of the dolls from my store, and give you guys a bit of background on the character and/or why I chose to make it, etc.
So, for the inaugural post of the Crocheting While Otaku series, I thought it’d be fun to just talk a bit about how I got started with crocheting and answering some questions I’ve been asked quite a bit over the past few months…
Hey Hey Heroes, Travelers and Wandering NPCs! I know it’s not Friday… well, maybe it is somewhere in the world… maybe? *awkward laugh* I’ve been kind of AWOL with this old blog for the past few months, forgive me, I’ve been trying to get my life together, but I’m back… kind of. It’s gonna take me a bit to get everything back up and running (I’m a bit rusty), but I recently watched an animated show that I just had to write about! So, while the blogging spirit is flowing through me, I figured I’d best get this post out, before I get distracted again… This week’s Fangirl Moment post will be about… *Drumroll* Voltron: Legendary Defender!
Yeah, I got sucked into the Voltron fandom…. I mean, I’d seen a few reruns of the 80’s series when I was a kid, but I never really got into it. Giant robots and explosions weren’t my thing… okay, Power Rangers aside… So, when the reboot was announced I just didn’t pay it much mind. But, after seeing tons of fan art and hearing countless people praise the series, I figured why not give it a try… I’m lying, I finished watching Stranger Things 2 and I needed something to watch while I crocheted and Voltron seemed like the perfect background noise. I never dreamed I’d make it through the first episode, let alone binge all four seasons in the span of a week, but here we are and I NEED MORE!!! So, you guys get to listen to my rampant fangirl ramblings about Voltron! Yay!
It’s day 16 of the 30 Day Haikyuu Challenge and I’m going to share with you guys my favorite uniform!
Since this challenge didn’t come with any instructions or anything like that, I’m going to assume they mean volleyball uniforms and not school uniforms. Though if you want to know, I am partial to the Nekoma High school uniform, that sweater vest and blazer combo is to die for!
But that’s neither here nor there… As for my favorite volleyball uniform, that’s another matter entirely! I thought about this long and hard, and after much deliberation I decided to go with….
I’m failing so hard at this challenge, hopefully I can be a bit more consistent from now on (no promises). I’m not one for excuses, so let’s get this show on the road, shall we… We’re up to day 15 of the 30 Day Haikyuu Challenge and today’s prompt is My Favorite Animal Representation.
I have to give it to the creator of this challenge, this is definitely a unique prompt and a challenging topic to write about. There are so many great teams in Haikyuu and each one has their own unique animal representation, each with their own merits. So, choosing one over the others is not an easy task… Okay, so really it was only hard to choose between just three teams and their animal representations and you can probably guess which ones…
Ah yeah, I’m still late with this post, but since I have a bit more to say about this topic, I’m not doing a double post today! Yay?! In my defense I have been reading Haikyuu fanfiction all week so it’s not like I was completely neglecting my love of the series…
I had a hard time choosing what to write about for this prompt, since there are so many great friendships in this show. Hell, you could argue that the show focuses more on the bonds the characters share with one another than it does on volleyball…. but that would be preposterous. So, rather than picking one friendship, I picked three!!*Ahem* My favorite friendships in Haikyuu are….
Alright, I got caught up with this really amazing fanfic and work has been kind of hectic, so i wasn’t able to write these posts during my free time like I originally planned. Ah, the perks of being an adult and a nerd… Anyway, since my answers for these two days are kind of short, I figured I’d just combine them like I did with days 10 and 11!
This post is gonna have a lot of girl power, since both of my picks happen to be some pretty phenomenal women! I’m not going to drag this out much so, without any further ado, here are my Day 12 and Day 13 picks!!
Yesterday was my birthday, so I definitely missed writing the Day 10 prompt. Rather than write separate posts for Day 10 and Day 11, I decided to just combine them into one post! Don’t worry, this won’t be a super long post, like the previous challenge posts, this one will be pretty straightforward.
Well, what can I say, this is going to be a super short post since I already declared my love for middle blockers in Day 6 post. On top of that, I have two favorite characters that both just so happen to be middle blockers and I already wrote about both of them….
It should be fairly obvious who I’m talking about, buuuuuut, if you’re still in the dark here’s a hint: They are my favorite Haikyuu ship!
Alright, Day 6 of the 30 Day Haikyuu Challenge and another day of sweet Haikyuu goodness! Today I’m supposed to write about my favorite volleyball position! *cue jokes*
I never really gave much thought to which position I fancied the most, they all have their merits and while some positions come with a bit more prestige than others, they all are important for a well balanced team. So, I really drew a blank with this prompt… I’m a pretty aggressive person so I rather like offensive positions, but, I’m not really big on team sports in general, so I tend to favor defensive positions whenever I have to participate in real life. I really feel like I just contradicted myself…. oh well, so about that response! Let’s see, my favorite volleyball position is…
