How did you pick your name?

Are you into anime?

While looking thru Wikipedia I stumbled across an article on Tsukuyomi-no-Mikoto, the Japanese moon god and it all kind of came together after that. At first I treated it like a wrong turn and was going to leave the page, but something urged me to read further and I just fell in love with the whole idea and decided to adopt the name for myself (not because I think I resemble a god in any way, shape or form, obviously :P but mostly because I found the story -particularly Tsukoyomi's relationship with the sun goddess, Omikami- strangely poignant and powerfully engaging). I don't know, it just felt like something I could identify with.

Yes sir, very much so. My first anime was Urikupen Kyjuotai, back in 1995 and I haven't stopped watching them since :)

Thank you for asking and I hope you find the answers satisfying :)

That's really cool! My name is from the Greek sun god, so we have something in common there. ;) Do you have a lot of interest in Japanese mythology?

What kinds of anime do you prefer? Sub or dub versions? Do you read the manga as well? \:D/

LOL Not to embarrass you, but I am actually a ma'am. ;) Just so you don't get confused or anything.

Ha, I thought your name sounded familiar (although, I couldn't quite place it). In any event, that's really cool and quite unexpected to have met someone named after a foreign deity like myself :mrgreen: Other than Omikami, Tsukuyomi, Ame-no-Uzume and the characters mentioned within their myth, I really don't have much interest in Japenese mythology, I'm afraid.

Quote:

Mmmm... I don't think there's one kind of anime I prefer over the rest (although, I tend to favor sport-based ones such as Kuruko-No-Basuke and Major!). Basically, if they have a good story, relatable characters and, more importantly, take their world seriously, I think I would have a nice time watching them. One example that I like to bring up when discussing anime is Little Witch Academia; it should be stupid, it shouldn't be good, but the characters care so much about the world they live in and the story of said world that it is hard not to get sucked in by it. I honestly ended up feeling sad that it only lasted twenty five episodes.

As for the sub/dub question goes: I have nothing against dubs (and, in some cases, they are simply necessary) but I'd rather watch foreign material in its original language, even if only to experience the dialogue and delivery in the exact same words and tone they were meant to have. I do not apply that concept to only anime, but movies and TV series as well.

I have only read five mangas to date: Pokémon (both the originals and Black and White), Little Witch Academia, Boku no Hero Academia and Slam Dunk! (Because they never finished animating the story :mad: :lol:).

Not embarrassed at all! It's good to know. My apologies for assuming otherwise :)

I've seen some of Kuroko-No-Basuke. It's pretty good! Tho the girl who coaches the team always confused me because she looks like a very pretty boy at times. O.o
Have you watched any of the Free! Iwatobi Swim Club anime?

I totally get this, especially with some of the earlier dubs from like the 2000s. They just don't have the same intensity and emotion as the Japanese versions. What foreign media besides anime do you enjoy?

What's Boku no Hero Academia about? I hear a lot about it, but I've never watched/read it. :)

I noticed on your "About Yourself" comment that you taught yourself three languages. Which ones?? And if I may be so bold, is English a secondary language?

That's the Japanese goddess of dawn, mirth and revelry. Her myth is as colorful as it gets and I like their depiction of her :)

I really haven't run into that problem before, but she definitely doesn't act girly :D

*Whispers* She's a little scary :D

I don't think so (at least, not off the top of my head). My animé watching schedule took a nosedive around 2007 and was only able to recover in 2015 or so. Right now, I'm trying to sort of backtrack and see what I missed and what's generally considered worth-watching. I should really go back to "His and Her Circumstances" (sadly left it about seven episodes in).

Quote:

Mostly movies, to be honest. Chiefs among those examples are Stalingrad (1993 - Germany) and Talvisota (1989 - Finland).

Watching the aforementioned Stalingrad with the official UK dub strips it of all seriousness in a way that I feel is demeaning to the whole work. It's not that the English dubbers had marked London accents, is that they failed miserably at imitating some German ones.

Quote:

It's one of those underdog stories that I love so much. It's basically about a guy named Izuku who is born without power in a superhero society but keeps working at it, trying to make his way into the hero world with his wits if not with flashy superpowers. Very soon he inherits power from the greatest hero of all, All Might, and tries to develop this new-found combat skill. The catch is that, for a really long time, Izuku can't control this power at all and ends up injuring himself severely after every attack, which leads him to use his wits in combination to as little power and he can muster in order to survive these clashes. Very addictive anime and an equally as interesting manga series. Definitely give it a go if you can!

Quote:

These languages are: English, Finnish and French (the last two are pretty rusty at the moment, though). English is my second language, Spanish being the first :)

Yes, very much so. I'm currently reading Desmond Young's book on Rommel.

Whit's Flop!

A huge tie between Eugene and Davey at the moment. The latter plays baseball, so it's a tough choice :D

*High fives back* I like to study the period between 1912-1945 the most. To me history became interesting after learning about the sinking of the Titanic, as it was the first topic to really grab my attention (I even attended a world event related to the sinking - that's how important it was for me and my ever-growing interest on historical events of cultural relevance).

YASSSS I love pretty much 1850 to now. I am particularly interested in WWII, however, especially in Europe.

Maybe we can have an interesting conversation and thoughts exchange on the subject at some point, as I really enjoy reading about WW2 in Europe as well (particularly soldier accounts).

This is an extremely tough -yet very good- question, since my likes change like the seasons. The film that I liked the most I think was Wicked Blood. Really perfect for such a humble film.

Yes, madame. I play guitar (really need lessons, though).

Thanks for asking :)

Not very far at all, to be perfectly honest. I listen to episodes with @321tumbler as one of those especial things we do (the other one being watching Blue Jays' games together) but we have hardly had the time to do so as of late. Looking forward to more Adventures in Odyssey, though!

Halloween isn't really a thing where I am (in fact, I have never even seen so much as a trick-or-treater or Jack-O-Latern around) but I'd be too old for it nowadays anyways :D

Would have loved to go as one of the Power Rangers when I was a wee lad, though :D
