15 -- what is your favorite harem anime?

Oh, I have so many smart-ass answers for this... I've seen some of the classic 'harem' series - Love Hina, Tenchi Muyo, etc. And a lot of reverse-harem shows, too, which might be a later question?

I'm not sure Kyou Kara Maou counts in either direction, but it springs to mind. *laughs* Also Angelique, Pretear, Hakuoki... I definitely have acquired a lot of 'pretty boy love interests galore!' shows. *laughs more*

Tenchi probably has had the most influence on me, but I know it's a series that hasn't necessarily aged well. ^^;; Any remaining art for Kalloway (the character) shows a strong resemblance to Ryoko and that's not accidental.

14 -- what is your favorite action anime?

How the fuck are we actually defining this? This is like 95% of what I watch...

You know what... since I haven't had a chance to really talk about it yet, let's go with Kiddy Grade. I adore Kiddy Grade, a fact that usually confuses anyone who is peripherally aware of the series but hasn't actually seen the whole thing. But Kiddy Grade is basically everything I like in anime, rolled into one. Action, drama, intrigue, pretty girls, pretty boys, robots, space fighting, humor, plenty of UST, amazing amounts of room for poking at the universe, etc. It is basically my anime happy place. ^_^

13 -- what is your favorite comedy anime?

Here is Greenwood is one of the most bizarre and charming series ever. It is hilarious, but it is not a straight comedy. In fact, the manga contains one of my go-to tear-jerker sequences... But when it's funny, it is very very funny.

Doujin Work is a short series based on a 4koma manga that is also hilarious. It is not afraid to go anywhere and (thankfully) often does. It chronicles the adventures of a group of doujin-making friends... working towards one of them trying to go pro as a manga-ka.

12 -- what is your favorite romance anime?

Wow, this is one of those questions where I'm stumped when it comes to anime, but I'll have trouble narrowing it down in regards to manga if I end up doing the meme again with the subject swapped.

So...

Actual Anime With A Lot of Romance In It Even If It Isn't A 'Romance' Anime - Vandread. Which isn't terribly romantic at all, but does have a lot of developing/established romantic subplots worth rooting for/enjoying. ^_^

Terrible Anime Based On Good Romance Manga - Alice in the Country of Hearts. The anime isn't worth watching, but the manga/games its based on are enjoyable and filled with gorgeous boys and it's fun to watch Alice's interactions with all of them (especially her love interest in each path). But the animated movie version just isn't worth it. Or only worth it if you're already a fan.

I do have some BL series like Gakuen Heaven, Sukisyo, etc. but I don't think I could list those as 'favorites'. I like Gakuen Heaven but think the main couple's romance is boring. ^^;;

11 -- what is your favorite drama anime?

This was a hard one, because most mecha anime qualifies as drama. While I don't know all the questions on this meme, I know there are a couple of mecha ones coming up. A lot of what I thought of that is very dramatic is also more romance or mecha or action or... whatever. So a straight-up 'first thought for this is drama' was really hard.

So here are two:

Planetes, which is a wonderful story about space-debris collectors. Both it and the manga made me cry so many times.

Starship Operators, about a warship of trainees basically financing their battles by being broadcast 24/7. As soon as anyone gets a name and any sort of subplot, expect them to die.

Both shows play space incredibly straight and while Planetes is the harder sci-fi, Starship Operators is the more brutal.

They are both very, very good.

10 -- what is your favorite 'moe' anime?

Hmm. I don't watch a lot of slice-of-life/girls-doing-everyday-things shows, which is where I think a lot of moe falls. I know Oreimo had a lot of moe elements, as does Eromanga Sensei (which I need to catch up on). And I did enjoy Girls Und Panzer and Gunslinger Girl, though for the latter I'd recommend the manga over the anime.

Whew-- Friday. This was a long, hot week.

I scheduled the window installation, which is still a month out (as expected). While this company seems relatively efficient, affordable, and I've heard very good things about the actual windows, their customer service has been just shy of atrocious. I had to beg the scheduling rep to stay on the phone to answer a couple of basic questions like 'how much space should I have clear around each window?' and whatnot. And this is after two other people coming out to measure, etc. and making disparaging and freakshow comments about my place.

Mostly, when I haven't been too groggy to do anything, I've been playing Brave Exvius. I'm not far into the story, since there are so many events to poke around in otherwise. So for every bit I progress the story, I'm burning through my energy gauge with grinding and whatnot. I did manage to score a Warrior of Light today, so I'm excited. I haven't had a chance to do much with him, though. I actually really like the BE original summons as much as anyone. There may be drabbles forthcoming. ^^;;

I want to try to do some writing this weekend. We'll see. It's been so long... I suppose I can get back to putting some stuff up on AO3 and whatnot, too? I probably have less than 5% of my total output up over there. *facepalms*

There's no time like the present!
