Nominated for the Liebster Award

Thanks to Pink-Chan on Pinky’s Palace for nominating me.

What is a Liebster Award?
Well, it’s an award that typically recognizes up and coming bloggers, by helping others discover new blogs and facilitate community building.

How does one get it?
In order to receive a Liebster Award, you must be nominated by a fellow blogger.

Here are the rules:

  • Thank the person who nominated you and answer the 11 questions they’ve written for you.
  • Nominate 11 people and give them 11 different questions to answer.


What is your favourite game genre?

Probably RPG but I also kind of like turn-based strategy games and the occasional shooter.

What is your favourite book genre?

Fantasy and Sci-Fi. Within fantasy I prefer high fantasy and paranormal stories and within sci-fi I have a real thing for survival stories.

What region do you prefer for comics? (Asia, America, Europe?)

None of the above. I’m not much for comics, manga, or any written text that is combined with visuals. I like to read novels or I like to watch TV. Don’t like the inbetween.

Why did you start blogging?

I answered this question when I got the Entertainer Blogger Award but essentially I’m just looking for people to share a love of anime with.

What is the trashiest game you played or book/comic you’ve read?

The trashiest game I played would probably be Vampire the Masquerade. I don’t think it has to be that trashy but I went with a character that seduced most people to get around conflict. It got pretty trashy.

Have you ever tried surströmming and if not, how do you think it tastes?
Have you ever tried mämmi?

No clue.

What is the most disgusting (tasting, looking and/or smelling) national delicacy you know of (where you live?)

I’m just going to go with Vegemite and call it a day. That is not food no matter what people say.

What is the funniest word you have heard? (And if not in English, what does it mean?)

I love defenestration (throwing someone out a window). I love that there is a word for this and I loved when I first read it in a David Eddings series and someone mistook the meaning of the word with fairly amusing results.

Please share one personal thing about you. Why that one in particular?

It’s probably become obvious by now but I am an absolute control freak. I like things to go according to plan.

In the console war, where do you stand?

I’m definitely for Nintendo but in honesty I haven’t really played console games for awhile (I do have a Wii but it is most definitely used more for socialising than for anything resembling serious gaming). Still, I went from the SNES to the N64 and they were my main consoles growing up.


Okay, I know that’s only 5 people but most of the people I thought about nominating were already nominated elsewhere.

While I’m at it, Cat on Another Gaming Day also nominated me for the versatile blogger award. Thanks for that. I’ve been nominated elsewhere since but I forgot to save the links. Sorry but thanks for the nominations.



  • Show the award on your blog
  • Thank the person/people who nominated you
  • Share 7 things about yourself
  • Nominate 10 blogs

7 things about me:

01. I love the colour red.

02. I’m a picky eater.

03. I don’t have a favourite style of music.

04. I can type up to 120 wpm but to ensure reasonable accuracy usually have to slow down to around 90 wpm.

05. While I can write about anime all day apparently thinking of 7 things to share about myself is difficult.

06. I have a preference for darker storylines but feel that they need to have some sort of overall message or theme that they are conveying.

07. Sarcasm is my go to defence when I’m feeling uncomfortable.

Nominations (and yes I am short again):

Thanks again for both of these nominations. I tried to remove people from the list who I knew had been nominated but I may have still doubled up on some. Sorry.

  1. Congrats, you deserve these and more awards, considering all the good stuff you put out!
    You really don’t like inbetween? Lord, I prefer manga because I find reading is faster than watching anime, plus I’m lazy to watch things. That’s kinda mindblowing, I figured there’d be more people not into reading, than not liking manga/comics haha xD

    1. That’s true. It’s probably because my eyes are drawn to the text when I’m ‘reading’ something so I actually get to the end of a manga page and realise I have no idea what is happening because I’ve just skipped all the images and only read the text and then I have to go back and I just find it really slow going. If I persisted I could probably overcome this, but I’m really happy with novels and anime so I’ll stick with that.

      1. Ah, I see, that does make sense. You don’t have to overcome anything, after all you’re fine as you’re, and enjoying what you like~! \^o^/

  2. Oh wow. I was just going to congratulate you but then I saw my name on your nominations list. Congrats & thank you very much. Keep up the great work. Cheers!

  3. alright then:

    1. This is a moving target, but i think im mostly partial to strategy games. i did starcraft a while back and league of legends, and now im kinda on civ. and there’s always fire emblem.
    2. i think i favor mystery the most, but also a lot of sci-fi and fantasy
    3. i guess asia since i read a lot of manga…but now i wonder what european comics are like
    4. because im a trash writer that wants to become a slightly less trash writer
    5. dont know what qualifies as trashy, but my least favorite games are mostly mmorpgs
    6. what the…what?
    7. i dunno about delicacies, but china has some weird stuff. like smelly tofu…
    8. Kappa (i got nothing)
    9. uhh…i dunno. i find chat/social media drama entertaining?
    10. im pretty firmly on the pc side of things, but i guess sony because of the tales franchise. i cant stand nintendo lol

    1. I must admit, I’m pretty PC bound now. I have a Wii but I don’t much use if for actual gaming (more exercise and the occasional group entertainment).

  4. i really do appreciate the nomination, but perpetuating these kinds of awards is not really in my interest. id be happy to answer the associated questions, though…i know that can be pretty interesting (is it just the same questions you answered?)

    fascinating that you draw the line at manga like that. i personally grew up on manga over anime (my parents were strict about the tv). im with you on the fantasy and sci-fi genres, though.
