The One Liner Challenge

one liner

I want to thank the lovely Irina for tagging me. I really enjoy this challenge so even though I have done it before I was pretty keen to give it another go. This time I decided to look at some of my recommended anime from 2018 and see if I could describe them in one sentence. So without further delay lets get into it.

The Rules

  1. Accept and thank your challenger(s) by linking back to their post.
  2. Make a post of one-sentence summaries and/or roasts of at least five books/anime.
  3. No spoilers!
  4. Link back to The Awkward Book Blogger so she can see your post.
  5. Challenge as many or as little people as you want!
  6. Have fun!

When making a game avatar always choose a bad-ass Demon Lord because if you get summoned to another world it will make you completely OP.

Who needs plot when you have Mii-Kun at the centre of this adorableness?

About half a season of watching characters walk and talk about not all that much and about half a season of emotionally driven drama with an excellent character arc spread out over too many episodes.

The One Liner Challenge

Thanks GeekOut South West for the nomination. I’m terrible at getting around to these tags and have a few others that I still haven’t responded to, but with Full Metal Panic not airing an actual episode this week I had an empty slot in my schedule and this looked like it would be a lot of fun.

  • Accept and thank your challenger(s) by linking back to their post.
  • Make a post of one-sentence summaries/roasts of at least five books/manga/anime/games.
  • No spoilers!
  • Link back to The Awkward Book Blogger so she can see your post.
  • Challenge as many or as few people as you want!

Okay, let’s take on this challenge. I’m going to take on anime, though part of me is tempted to do this challenge again for books or games at some point. I don’t think I’ve read enough manga yet to do the challenge with that, unless BL counts in which case the one sentence summaries will all end up more or less the same.

VampireKnight4
Tortured teen love triangle occasionally interrupted by vampire/hunter politics.

Soul Eater.jpg
Feisty teen book worm kicks butt with transforming human weapon – and has daddy issues.

black butler.jpg
For the price of a soul get one pretty boy butler who can do literally everything perfectly.

Kamisama Kiss.jpg
Down on her luck Nanami goes from being homeless to being a god in one day with added perk of pretty fox boy servant.

Sailor Moon.jpg
Why wouldn’t you call on a clumsy, ditsy, crybaby and a group of middle-school girls to save the world from the forces of darkness?

I’m not actually going to nominate anyone specifically given my terrible track record of getting around to answering nominations, but I would throw the challenge out there to anyone who is interested in this. It was actually quite a bit of fun.


Thanks for reading.
