  • 2pt
    1. What is your most favorite series?
    JoJo's Bizarre Adventure.

    2. Why do you like it?
    Araki has the most brilliant mind; his storytelling is next level. The series has its own distinctive art style, there are loads of wonderful characters, and even the villains are strangely likeable! The multi-generational rivalry between DIO and the Joestar family is epic. Additionally, the soundtrack is amazing. Giorno's Theme (Il Vento D'oro) = F I R E.

    3. Your favorite figures of the series?
    Um... all of them? No, really... I'd go with my RAH DIO ITEM #21312, the Super Figure Art Jonathan ITEM #1878 and the Ichi Kuji Joseph ITEM #189870. Honourable mention goes to the Master Stars figures and the Nendoroids.

    4. Who is your favorite character in the series?
    Joseph Joestar (followed closely by Jotaro and Giorno)

    5. Which characters deserve more figures?
    Speedwagon... if I could get one decent scale or a SAS I could die happy. Also, Okuyasu and Hayato need more love too.

    6. What is the first series you ever watched/read?
    Watched: Samurai Pizza Cats in the very early 90's, and then Sailor Moon in the mid-90's.
    Read: One Piece.

    7. Other series that you like? Got some recommendations?
    Tiger & Bunny, Cowboy Bebop, Steins;Gate, School Rumble, Samurai Champloo, Noragami, Space Dandy, Barakamon, Overlord, Re:Zero, Konosuba, Haikyuu, Bungo Stray Dogs, Hinamatsuri, Golden Kamuy, Goblin Slayer, Assassination Classroom, Death Note, One Piece.

    8. Series you're currently watching/reading?
    Watching: Ahiru no Sora, MHA S4, Darwin’s Game, Hatena Illusion, Isekai Quartet S2, BOFURI, Hanako-kun, JJBA Golden Wind, Kabukicho Sherlock, Demon Slayer, Welcome to Demon School Iruma-kun, Nekopara, Oshi ga Budoukan, Plunderer, Smile Down the Runway and Railgun T. I’m also watching Junjou Romantica S3 and March Comes In Like a Lion S2 on the side in my spare time. Reading: Attack on Titan, Hinamatsuri, The Royal Tutor.

    9. How do you discover anime/manga to watch/read?
    I keep an eye on the upcoming season on MAL. I usually check out the majority of each season's titles; deciding from there what to keep or drop. I also go back and check out some of the more popular titles from past seasons, ones I might have missed. I get recommendations from my brother too.

    10. Which one do you prefer, manga or anime?
    Anime, no question.

    11. What do you think about MAL's top 50 anime?
    I'm basing this on the top 100, rather than just the 50 on the first page. There's some really good, must-see titles in there. I've either watched, or plan to watch just over a third of them.

    1. All-time tied favorites are Fullmetal Alchemist: Brotherhood, Tengen Toppa Gurren Lagann, and after those two, the Monogatari series, which I can't help but give mention to.

    2. Don't even get me started on why I love these series! I don't want to write three essays at the moment, haha. It boils down to this: for FMAB, it is the philosophy and characters. For TTGL, the inspirational message, animation, and characters. Monogatari for the direction, satire, supernatural genre, and characters. I want to go on so badly, but I can't let myself, we'd be here forever.

    3. Favorite figure of TTGL is ITEM #287855 Bunny style Yoko- and my favorite of Monogatari is ITEM #901543 Hanekwa and her cat counterpart, Black Hanekawa.

    4. Edward Elric, Kamina, and as for Monogatari, it's a tie between Koyomi Araragi, Hitagi Senjougahara, and Shinobu Oshino.

    5. Kamina and Araragi, certainly.

    6. My first ever anime were Studio Ghibli films, and the series were Sgt. Frog, Squid Girl, and Moonrise.

    7. Steins;Gate, No Game No Life, Spice & Wolf, Fooly Cooly, Clannad, ToraDora!, Noragami, Madoka Magica, Mononoke, Mushishi, Code Geass, Your Lie in April, Neon Genesis Evangelion, Kill la Kill, and so many more also have a special place in my heart.

    8. I would like to dabble in watching One Piece (don't ask about the wording, haha), check out Mob Psycho 100, finish Cowboy Bebop, start JoJo's Bizarre Adventure. I'm really trying to expand my horizons into more obscure, less mainstream, and more niche shows.

    9. I discovered it I guess on Netflix at around age eight.

    10. I prefer anime and light novels over manga.

    11. Hey, as long as my top three are on there, I'm happy. TTGL deserves higher, however, in my opinion.

    As a 30 year old with a odd history of fading in and out of anime, ill give it a shot!!!

    1. favorite series? Space Dandy! There are two types of people, the Boobie or the booty.

    2. Why do you like it? - There's no other anime like, nor will there ever be. If you've ever wanted to get into animation, this is what you should strive to accomplish! With a massive collection of some of japans finest directors, illustrators, designers, ect. each given their own freedom to direct their very own episode. Each episode is an adventure in its self.

    3. Your favorite figures of the series? Its and underrated anime, so there's only 2 official figures.

    4. favorite character Dandy baby, who else!

    6. First Series? The original 90's Sailor Moon is the first Anime I can remember seeing on Tv, but Durarara was the first series that got me fully back into watching anime

    7. recommendations? Welcome to the N.H.K, Parasyte, Tokyo Godfathers

    8. currently watching? Going between Boku No Hero SE4, and Darker than Black! and old show and new one!!

    9. How do you discover anime I like to randomly browse online, reading a description or review and looking at a few pictures from it, I enjoy discovering random shows wheather or or new!

    10. manga or anime? I'm limited on time, so anime's the easiest for me!

    11. What do you think about MAL's top 50 anime? for the most part is kinda mob mentality (Super big popular anime), but there is a few surprises on there! :)

    haro mizu no akashi
    1. What is your most favorite series?:
    Yuri on Ice
    2. Why do you like it?:
    I've been a figure skating fan all my life, and an anime fan most of my life, so it was pretty much my dream show. It being legitimately super well written was just the icing on the cake. Plus I'm gay, so you know, the romance aspect is very appealing as well.
    3. Your favorite figures of the series?:
    Probably free skate Yuuri nendoroid (ITEM #591502), but once the beach chase figures from GSC come out (ITEM #644120 & ITEM #644121), they might be my fave.
    4. Who is your favorite character in the series?:
    Yuuri Katsuki. ❤️️
    5. Which characters deserve more figures?:
    Uhh Yuuri? For real though despite YOI being the third biggest selling anime this century, it got weirdly shafted on figures. No Eros Yuuri scale and Stammi Vicino duet set is still a crime.
    6. What is the first series you ever watched/read?:
    I had seen some anime before, but the series that got me INTO anime was Slayers! And it is still one of my favorite shows ever.
    7. Other series that you like? Got some recommendations? The list is endless. Here is my MAL: myanimelist.net... . As far as figures though, my biggest collection is for Macross Frontier, which I will recommend to anyone and everyone.
    8. Series you're currently watching/reading?
    A Place Further than the Universe, Magia Record. Not watching much right now, actually.
    9. How do you discover anime/manga to watch/read?:
    I just check around on news sites, anichart, etc. And I get recommendations from friends.
    10. Which one do you prefer, manga or anime?:
    Depends on the series.
    11. What do you think about MAL's top 50 anime?:
    Honestly? Nah. I can absolutely agree with FMAB being #1 (though I prefer the manga), but some rest of the list is pretty middling. There's a lot of incredible shows that aren't on there merely because a fair faction of MAL users deliberately voted them down despite not even watching the show. IDK. The fan culture on MAL can be really frustrating. You hate to see it. Also Code Geass is on there and it's one of my least fave shows.

    1. What is your most favorite series?
    One Piece

    2. Why do you like it?
    The main draw for me is the interactions between the characters. Some of my favorite moments include the Straw Hats just hanging out on the ship or wherever. They all play off each other so well lol. Other than that, it's just an amazing story. It's fun, adventurous, hilarious, heart breaking, etc.

    3. Your favorite figures of the series?
    Portrait of Pirates by Megahouse. I especially like their older figures that had a lot of interchangeable parts but their newer figures look gorgeous

    4. Who is your favorite character in the series?
    Zoro. I think he's an all-around fantastic character. Plus, he's the cool one but he's also a little bit derpy which is extremely entertaining
    Honorable mentions to Robin and Brook

    5. Which characters deserve more figures?
    Definitely Buggy. The lack of Buggy options really is a shame. Also Bartolomeo. Seriously, come on.

    6. What is the first series you ever watched/read?
    The first series I watched was Dragon Ball Z Kai (part of it anyway, original DBZ is the first one I finished.) The first series I read was One Piece

    7. Other series that you like? Got some recommendations?
    Fullmetal Alchemist, Silver Spoon, Your Lie in April, Blade of the Immortal (manga), Vinland Saga (manga), Attack on Titan, Erased, Samurai Champloo

    8. Series you're currently watching/reading?
    Currently reading Monster by Naoki Urasawa. Great stuff. Not watching anything right now

    9. How do you discover anime/manga to watch/read?
    Word of mouth. Or if I just come across something that seems interesting

    10. Which one do you prefer, manga or anime?
    Manga. In general I guess it depends on the series though

    11. What do you think about MAL's top 50 anime?
    I don't have much of an opinion on it honestly lol. There are some series I know and like on there

    1. What is your most favorite series? This is hard, as I love Fate, but I think my all time favorite is actually Slayers. Maybe if I watched it again it wouldn't be, but I don't think my opinion is going to change. If I can remember details about something I saw all the way back in middle school, I'm thinking it stuck with me.
    2. Why do you like it? It's both funny AND has a good overarching story (when it starts up, anyway). Plus, it's one of the rare pre-isekai fantasy anime that had its own world that was actually pretty well thought out.
    3. Your favorite figures of the series? The Lina Inverse nendoroid. I'm not counting GKs here, and the only normal figure is old. The only scale isn't out yet, so I'm not counting it.
    4. Who is your favorite character in the series? Female would be either Sylphiel or Lina, male is Gaav (I'M WEIRD, I KNOW D:)
    5. Which characters deserve more figures? ALL OF THEM. Even the MC, Lina, has very few figures.
    6. What is the first series you ever watched/read? Period? Samurai Pizza Cats. Manga I think was actually Sailor Moon. I loved the anime, and was super excited Sailor Moon was also a manga.
    7. Other series that you like? Got some recommendations? A huge list LOL. Fate, Danganronpa, Martian Successor Nadesico, Neon Genesis Evangelion, Chobits, Magic Knight Rayearth, Record of Lodoss War, Fushigi Yuugi, Saint Tail, Kamikaze Kaitou Jeanne, Fullmoon o Sagashite, Rising of the Shield Hero, Watamote, Re:Zero, Familiar of Zero, Black Butler, Pandora Hearts, Karin, Ancient Magus Bride, Konosuba, Escaflowne, Tenchi Muyo
    8. Series you're currently watching/reading? I'm still getting through Rising of the Shield Hero, Fate/Grand Order Babylonia, and Shirobako. As for manga, I'm still keeping up with the Black Butler and Watamote mangas, and have a long to read list lol.
    9. How do you discover anime/manga to watch/read? Originally, through TV and later Animerica Magazine (for non-TV titles). Manga was through the library, book stores, and comic shops (and once again Animerica in some cases). Now, through word of mouth, reading the summaries on the backs of blu-Rays/online, seeing figures and liking the designs and wanting to check out the series as a result, randomly browsing Amazon, browsing at bookstores, and reading summaries of what an anime is about on sites like Anichart and choosing series that are airing from that list.
    10. Which one do you prefer, manga or anime? Manga, actually. I can read a manga faster than I can watch a TV series.
    11. What do you think about MAL's top 50 anime? Most of them aren't my taste, and I'm thinking they aren't based on how good they are, but is a popularity contest. Some I agree with, like FMA, Your Lie in April, or the Ghibli ones, but most, no.

    1. What is your most favorite series?
    Pandora Hearts and Higurashi no Naku Koro ni

    Pandora Hearts: there is only one offical figure from this serie but it's really badly made :c

    11. What do you think about MAL's top 50 anime?
    Good that Code Geass is included

    I guess I'll contribute. I should be working but whatever:

    1. What is your most favorite series?
    One Piece
    2. Why do you like it?
    The world-building and characters are amazing. The fact stuff introduced years ago suddenly becomes relevant is a nice touch. Plus, there's so much crazy stuff and mysteries it never gets old.
    3. Your favorite figures of the series?
    I'm partial to the Megahouse POPs. They're very well done although they don't have a good variety of characters anymore. I can't wait to see this in person: ITEM #846085
    4. Who is your favorite character in the series?
    I hate to admit, but I love Caesar Clown. I just enjoy bumbling douches.
    5. Which characters deserve more figures?
    In One Piece, every newer important character. In general, more males and side characters in Fate.
    6. What is the first series you ever watched/read?
    My first watched was the dub of Pokemon. My first read was the old Tokyopop Sailor Moon manga.
    7. Other series that you like? Got some recommendations?
    Dr. Stone is really interesting. Hunter x Hunter is also great.
    8. Series you're currently watching/reading?
    I'll always be reading/watching One Piece lol. Other than that, I'm watching Fist of the North Star, Jojo, Detective Conan, Pretty Cure (don't judge), Persona, Law of Ueki, Hunter x Hunter, Black Lagoon, Dr. Stone, Lupin III, and Fairy Tail.
    9. How do you discover anime/manga to watch/read?
    Sometimes friends recommend shows. That's how I found Jojo. Other times, I see pictures on the net and am intrigued so I look them up. Toonami also introduces me to stuff.
    10. Which one do you prefer, manga or anime?
    Manga, and preferably in physical print. But I do enjoy anime too.
    11. What do you think about MAL's top 50 anime?
    I think it's biased towards avoiding popular shows. But I do like most of the shows on there.
