Well, I lied, I meant to not do this doubling up post again, but yesterday was my birthday and I ended up writing my fanfic and doing stuff with my family instead of writing this. But, I’m again making up for it now! It’s very possible I’ll have to do 24, 25, and 26 in one post since I’ll be at relatives’ houses for the next two days and I doubt they want me blogging while I’m there.
Also, I meant to have a big post yesterday, but, uh, I have maybe 300 words written so far, so again that may not be until the 26th or 27th. I’ll still get a longer post out before next Friday, though.
Enough apologies, I’ll get onto the prompts.
Favorite Armor, Weapon, or Gear used in Anime
So, the first thing I thought of when I saw this prompt was more unconventional ways to fight. And that led to me thinking about Black Butler. Because I love that series, and I neglect it way too much. I’ll be talking about it now.
I love the fact that for the most part, the characters don’t use guns or swords or any normal weapons. Sebastian uses knives, forks, and plates to kill those he’s asked to. And that makes for some fascinating fight scenes. It’s what really drew me into the series. From what I saw on the outside, I didn’t realize there would be a lot of bloodshed or violence, but once I saw Sebastian flinging forks and taking down guys at a rapid-fire pace, it got me.
Not to mention, the reapers’ weapons are all…gardening implements?? Like Grell has a chainsaw, and William has the hedge-trimmers, and Ronald has a lawnmower. I wonder sometimes how the creator came up with that idea.
This show is bizarre, and I love that about it. It’s also messed up at times, but it has this eerie beauty about it.
Favorite Attack Used in Anime
I’m not entirely sure what this one is asking, honestly. I think I kinda ignore a lot of anime where characters yell out fancy attack words before beating up their foe. So, I’m a bit at a loss here.
Even though I know I’m going to talk about My Hero Academia in a later prompt, I’ll just go with this again. It’s been on my mind a lot, so it’s easy to discuss.
I really love the way the quirks look in this show. Some are very pretty, and some are just jaw-droppingly powerful. But, my favorite visual of a quirk is actually Izuku’s, during the internship arc and beyond. It went from being so overbearing and destructive to his body, to being this beautiful display of green and red light, coursing over his body. And I don’t know, it just makes me so happy every time I see it.
So there’s my answer. I love the way One for All looks when Izuku uses it in the more recent episodes.
Gosh, I probably should have chosen a different month for this challenge, since December is just so busy. But, I think once I finish watching Haikyuu!! I’ll do that challenge. It looks like fun, and it might be easier for me?
Hope you enjoyed this!
