Seven Shades of Shoka
I’m in favor of generally cute things.
It gets to the point that some people judgmentally call me gay. I didn’t really mean to come up with this point in a way that it will be sad but truth hurts, they say. I was once a battle shounen lover, like I would be that elitist cuck who would die to defend titles like Naruto, Dragon Ball Z and even One Piece despite having never finished two of the three; you can guess which one I have finished. It was that one day I took a courageous step outside of my then comfort zone and watched CLANNAD. Nearly absolutely everything about my anime life changed for good. The change in tastes, not just for anime but for ‘manly’ to cute things in general, eventually has me hiding from even my regular friends. Though my best friend is exactly who he is; he accepts me for who I am!
That said, I do indeed keep my interests and even my anime taste to myself.
The only place I let them out is right here in my blog, where if you happen to be reading this or any other posts from me, there is absolutely no downside in having someone over the internet knowing that I’m just another person who loves cute things in and outside of anime.
Don’t let the description of my personality fool you however; I don’t want you to stand there acting all frozen up if you happen to witness how much physical work I can actually do.
That’s reality. I will do what I have to do.
That old part of me has not really died; I can still come off as elitist often and I am not afraid to admit it.
So please do tell me to slow down on that part if I happen to not find the brake.
I think this part is absolutely a given; you really cannot be a real critic without one. I can still analyze things without having to hold onto my firm beliefs. Elitists on the other hand will not bother with analyses; they just outright tell you to go and do something else, probably because they are afraid that you may become a better critic than they are.
To make things worse, I am judgmental.
But only when you say something that triggers my memories as to why I abhor such things. Be it real people in stereotypes or just demographic of anime fans.
This is different to the usual memes to do with being triggered. Lol!
But you know what they say; it is a lot easier to feel connected with the person sharing the idea of hating on the same thing as you do. Even if it is for a short while, I feel that ‘connection’ which always satisfy myself as I spout more and more hate…
I just cannot be that perfect person who bears absolutely no hate towards anything. Impressions are there for a reason and if they are not good, then something needs to be done about it.
You can always count on me to do my part, even if it means bitter endings.
I initially thought that butter chicken was just literally cooked chicken, marinaded in butter!
It comes to no surprise now that butter chicken curry is among my most favorite food to consume. But before the world famous Indian cuisine made it into my favorite list however, I went through one of those ‘shoot me, I’m dumb‘ moments. To make it worse, I’d been deceiving myself for at least three years before I came to actually learn that butter chicken is..
- Not just pieces of chicken
- Is actually a curry dish
- Is DELICIOUS
I really am not fond of hentai despite being neutral towards ecchi and being able to take a huge amount of it into my head.
This is just me being an little unappreciative f*ck, but no…
There is something in hentai that does not put me off but rather, it cannot pull me in. I play visual novels that involve 10% hentai elements but never do I go in for the sex. I have finished a few, namely Fate and Grisaia no Kajitsu, and I can see why they had used sex to sell the game. I could really come up with a relatively long rant of a post about how they really did not need to use hentai but a tiny appreciative side of me prevents me from doing just so! That said, if hentai comes as a very small inclusion of the thing I am going to consume then I will still be fine.
Though, I do not think this is the time for me to get analytic about why that is the case. Maybe next time yo.
I love cooking.
I have eighteen letters in my surname.
A…adding more into it would be a great pain in the ass for me.

I will not ask them to actually follow up and write a post if that means costing their precious times.
Nevertheless, these are some blogs I have long-before or recently discovered and have considered them or the people running them to be very lovely, or both!
They happen to all be anime blogs, too!
I’m sure I don’t need to say this but I will anyway.
Please check them all out! Ah!

Righty. It has been a blast for me to celebrate my supposedly well earned award. I really feel unusually happy when writing out posts that heavily involves celebrations. It’s just a feeling of needing to run up to someone, shake their hands vigorously and say WELL DONE MAAAAAN, even if that is to a girl.
Yeap. I am totally breaking the last three rules.
You saw nothing, okay?
