I know I am recycling ideas now. However, when I was doing my Halloween Book Tag, which can be seen here, I realised how these questions would make a great anime tag. This anime tag is a motification of the book tag created by Naomi TheBookLover.
Carving pumpkins – What anime would you carve up and light on fire?
I love Kuroshitsuji, in fact it is one of my all times favorite. That’s why I have to hate the second season. I seriously have no idea what made the executive decision to push this anime out. The second season of Kuroshitsuji was of course 1) not in the manga, and 2) doesn’t even follow the theme of the original. The first season started of great (because they followed the manga), and then took a nose-dive into a weird and premature ending (which is why it should have sticked to the original manga). The second season just took another cliff-jump into more weirdness and out-of-nowhere-ness, which is why it shouldn’t have existed.
Kuroshitsuji is a story that is full of depth and dark humour. It combines mystery, fantasy, and philosophy, and present it beautifully in a Victorian British setting. The stories reference actual historical event and comment on topics such as religion, science, ethics, traditions, family, human psychology, etc. Each story arc presents well-developed, unique characters with a well-developed plot that would eventually leave a hole in your heart.
The second season took out the depth and humour and all it left was just darkness and creepiness. I was genuinely bored of the story and confused about what was going on at the same time. The ending was even stranger than the first season.
For people who are interested in Kuroshitsuji, I recommend that you watch only the first half of first season, leave for the manga, completely ignore the 2nd season, and come back to the 3rd season (the best season).
Trick or treat – What character is a treat, what character is a trick?
See? They are both tricks and treats. Also, I’m not being sarcastic just in case anyone is wondering.
Candy corn – What anime is always sweet?
Natsume Yuuchinchou series. I imagine that a lot of people would go for romantic animes. Natsume Yuuchinchou has little romance, but it is certainly the best anime for your soul. This anime isn’t sweet like candy corns but it is sweet like a cup of hot cocoa in a winter night. The stories are often heart-warming and makes you feel all warm and fussy inside. I always watch it after watching or reading a gruesome dystopian story, and it has always been able to restore my faith in humanity.
Ghosts – What character would you love to visit you as a ghost?
Dressing up in costume – What character would you want to be for a day?
This is a very difficult question, as I have said in my book tag blog, as there are so many awesome characters in anime. As I can only be that character for one day, I would want to be able to get something that would last forever. That’s why I chose Index Librorum Prohibitorum from Toaru Majutsu no Index / A Certain Magical Index. She has 103,000 magical texts memorised in her brain. As anyone who isn’t a esper can use magic, assuming that I don’t forget those texts after the day, I would become the most powerful person in the world.
