A Mystery to be Revealed…What Could it be?

Welcome, weebs, to Animated Observations

Well, life never stops moving I guess, and as I matter of fact neither do I. Since Most of house is currently in boxes this week I thought I would take a week off from serious posts. I also didn’t really feel like crying this week because of AnoHana, so there’s that. Regardless, I want to thank Chizurue from Of Midnight Ravings and Nesha from Wore Her Sweater for nominating me for the mystery blogger award. With that being said, lets get to it.

Rules, Rules, Rules

  • Display the award logo on your blog.
  • Thank the blogger who nominated you and provide a link to their blog.
  • Mention Okoto Enigma, the creator of the award.
  • Tell your readers 3 things about yourself.
  • Answer 5 questions from the nominee.
  • Nominate 10 – 20 bloggers.
  • Notify your nominees by leaving a comment on their blog.
  • Ask your nominees 5 questions of your choice, including 1 weird or funny question.
  • Share the link to your best post.

Three Things About Me

  • One of my goals for the near future is to be a published author. Whether that means fiction or poetry, self-published or professionally so, I honestly have no idea, but I definitely have a lot of ideas that I want to get out in some semi-organized form
  • My favorite anime is “March Comes in Like a Lion.” While this is not new information, I just want to make sure it is known. You should go watch it. like, now.
  • Working during a pandemic is definitely one of the worst experiences I have had and probably will ever have.


Since both Chizurue and Nesha both nominated me around the same time, I’ll try and respond to both of their questions

First up, Chizurue.

What’s the most useless talent you have? 

Hmmm…Well, It’s mostly useless, but I’m pretty decent in competitive “Smash Ultimate.” Aside from that, I don’t really have any other talents that could really be classified as useless talents. Mostly because I don’t have that many talents to begin with.

What anime or movie or series would you turn into a novel to lure the bookworms in?

Normally I would snap say “March” here because that’s my answer to everything, but I actually don’t think it would be as compelling in book form. This is kind of sudden, but I think “Terror in Resonance” would work really well as a novel, as the drama in that series seems much more suited to written form.

What movie, anime, drama or series can you watch over and over without ever getting tired of? (Pick one or share one each) – This is really just me asking for recommendations.

“Oregairu,” or “My Teen Romantic Comedy SNAFU” is always a go to for me. I am actually currently re-watching the series with one of my best friends, and even 6 years after first watching it, the show still sells its message so well. It can be a little pretentious sometimes, and the main character is unlikeable for sure, but that’s the point 99.9 percent of the time. plz watch.

What mythical creature do you wish actually existed? So it can be your pet, a spirit animal, or you in your next life.

probably dragons. I know that’s a pretty basic answer, but its true. Dragons are pretty cool.

What made you follow this blog Of Midnight Ravings? (If you’re not following my blog – why not? or just disregard this one)

My memory is pretty off, but I believe its cause I interacted with you first and then saw you also blogged. You seemed, and still are, pretty cool;)

And now, Nesha

What is that ONE desire or enthusiasm, the passion of yours that drives your soul?

F O O D…lol, jk. At this point, I think its probably either writing or gaming. While I have never considered myself a particularly competitive person, it always feels good to be able to consistently perform well in something, which is why I enjoy gaming. However, I also enjoy the collaboration and teamwork that comes with writing. so, its pretty much a toss up.

What makes you grateful, optimists, and concerned about this passion of yours?

I definitely feel like every time I do either of the two, whether it be working on poetry or short stories or getting better competitively at a specific game, which definitely makes me more optimistic about doing either thing. My biggest concern probably is just that it never pays off, but I try not to think about that to much.

What does success look like in your head?

I would consider myself successful when I have to work as little as possible and have the freedom to do what I want.

What do you enjoy about writing?

I really enjoy the craft of writing. It feels amazing when you can utilize certain literary tools successfully and it translates over when people read your work.

Do you like cats? What about catgirls? (This is the funny one)

Both are okay in my book.

My Best Post

This is kind of hard, tbh, but If I had to pick my best post, it would probably be this one:

Everything is Politics, Including Anime, and What That Should Mean

I put quite a bit of research into it, probably more than any other post I have written. plz read.


Just as a heads up, for everyone that I nominate, feel free to ignore this, since I know everyone is busy around this time of year
