First Sunshine Blogger Award & My Top 11 Must-Follow Nominees!

Another nomination! Osu! But more importantly, this is another chance to pull into the spotlight some of the anime bloggers who had some nice stuff on their blogs!


I had to dig through my email because I remember receiving pingbacks about this Sunshine Blogger Award multiple times and I did receive three nominations in total!

My biggest thanks to:

Reads, Rhythms, and Ruminations who just started blogging but is already putting out cool posts!

DTalksAnime who also nominated me for the Versatile Blogger award and whose posts never fail to humor me. Yes, dude, you’re a natural. Keep up the good work!

LittleAnimeBlog for being so consistent in blogging given the diverse things they cover in one blog.


  • Thank the person who nominated you in a blog post and link back to their blog.
  • Answer the 11 questions sent by the person who nominated you.
  • Nominate 11 new blogs to receive the award and write then 11 new questions.
  • List the rules and display the Sunshine Blogger Award logo in your post and/or on your blog.

I was debating which of the three sets of questions (from the three who nominated me) should I answer and I decided to go for the last nomination from LittleAnimeBlog.  Dozo….

LittleAnimeBlog’s Questions

1. What got you interested in blogging?

Anime. I’ve grown up watching anime, and there were times when I felt the need to share something about it. I love writing too so I figured that I should start one. For pleasure and practice. 

2.What do you wish people knew about you without you having to tell people?

That I’m a home buddy.  I often get invited by friends and cousins to hang out and more often than not, I only end up getting stressed with all the noise. I sometimes refuse. Then they give me weird looks. And then I go explaining why I want to stay home and all that. 

3.What first got you interested in anime and or manga?

I was pretty sure it was Fushigi Yuugi’s OP. I remember hearing it every 5 p.m. when I was a kid. It’s the regular airing schedule of the show in our place, and one of our neighbors just felt like upping the volume when the song starts.

I’m too young to ask if it was intentional but I guess it did the job of conditioning my brain to like Japanese songs. And the rest is history.

4.Are you an early bird or a night owl?

Both. I’m good whenever coffee or tea is present.

5.Do you plan or wing your blog posts?

Plan.  Although there are few exceptions just like the random reaction post I did about Yuri on Ice

6.If you could save three things from a fire in your home, what would they be? (Ps size, weight, and quantity don’t matter.)

Laptop, Bible, and cash

7.Do you have any anime merch? (this includes manga) If yes, what was the very first thing you bought?

My first purchase came in one package: Prince of Tennis stickers, Bleach laminated trading cards, and a Rukawa poster – the same poster which my mom threw away because she thought Rukawa looked ugly. Can you believe that?

8.How open are you in the real world about your feelings towards anime?

In a scale of 1 to 5, with five being the most open, I’m a 4. 

9.Have you ever cosplayed or wanted to? If yes, what character and why that character?

I’ve never cosplayed. I prefer to be taking photos instead. But if I had to choose one, I’ll probably go for Konan of the Akatsuki (Naruto Shippuden series).

One, because I like the Akatsuki robe and she’s cool. Two, because I fancy the thought of being in the same group as Itachi. LOL.

10.If you knew money was not an issue, what is the one thing that you would do for yourself?

Go to Japan and study their language.

11.What is your favorite post that you have written on your blog and what is the most popular post on your blog?

Favorite would be:

Most popular based on responses would be:

  1. Congratulations on the award, and thank you for the nomination! Oh no that’s so sad about your poster ;_; I’ve got a bunch of one piece posters and my mum refuses to let me hang them up cause she thinks they’re ugly, so I feel your feels.

  2. Congratulations on the award and thanks for the mention! I like staying at home as well. Plus you get to watch anime. I’m sorry about your poster. I hope you get many more posters and merch in the times to come.

    I’ll have to check out these two posts that you featured. Thanks again.

  3. Congratulations on the award and thanks for the nomination! If I were to ever cosplay I would probably choose someone from Akatsuki as well, their costume is really cool. I’m sorry to hear about the poster, but well I guess every mother is the same, my mom also threw away one of my posters ;_; though it wasn’t anime related.

    I would be sure to check out the blog you mentioned. Keep up the good work!
