Liebster Award 2015



This is his fault for tagging me. (Just kidding 😀 )
(And sorry for stealing your image) 😀

This is the first time this humble blog has been involved in such award. (I have bad memories)

Anyway, The Liebster Award is a prestigious festival conducted by fellow bloggers to meet new writers and readers. It’s like a chain letter with benefit. Yes, think of it that way and you’re own your way to meet new people and interest.

Rules :

  • Thank the person who nominated you by linking his award and/or blogger              ✓
  • (Optional: Provide some background information and the rules on Liebster Award)       ✓
  • Answer the 11 questions provided by the blogger who nominated you               ✓
  • (Optional: State 11 facts about yourself)       ✓
  • Nominate 3~10 bloggers to do this, too
  • Write 11 questions for your nominees to answer and notify them of your nomination    ✓

(5 out of 6 is good right?)

Let’s get started before somebody pointed out my grammar mistakes. 😀


1. Has there been a seiyuu/voice actor that you really dislike? Why (not)?

– I haven’t seen a lot of anime due to my crappy internet speed so most of my ‘me time’ were usually spent on mangas and magazines instead. But, instead of talking about a seiyuu that I dislike, why not the one that I actually like? Well, that honor goes to Kana Hanazawa. And I only got to know her from Garden Of Words, a movie worth a couple of tears, which lead me to her other work such as Potemayo and Psycho Pass. (Actually there’s another reason on how I got to know her but we’ll discuss that later)


2. What are some of your least favorite genres? Or at least, genres that you tend to avoid?

– I already answered this at leap’s blog but for those who wants a short answer, it’s mostly shonen but sometime I’ll just turn a blind eye and regret it later.

3. Do you read manga? Has there been an instance when a scene/chapter has moved you that you couldn’t help but cry?

– Yes to both. ( T^T)

Sad sad


4. What do you think is a romantic deed (e.g. confession, kiss, hug, etc) in any romance anime? Why?

– A confession. I guess because it’s the moment where a simple answer, depends on what the answer is, could be the answer to all your problems but at the same time it could also be your sole problem.

This couple of people built up an unconditional relationship as friends and when one of them decided to break the barrier and (if they) got rejected, everything loses its meaning. Conversations are left empty, words are left unspoken and the relationship they used to have now slowly rotting away, waiting to be forgotten.

5. Do you have keep a MAL account? Follow up questions: [5.a.] If you do, show off your MALgraph awards (anime and/or manga, whichever is fine with you) by posting a screencap. Which award do you wish to level up next and why [5.b.] If you don’t have a MAL, do you have a profile on any other anime listing service? Why prefer that over MAL? (Or why not keep any at all?)

– Don’t have any. ( T^T) My internet speed is terrible.

6. Do you keep or wish to keep a pet/s? Describe your bonding moments.

– Used to have 9 cats. (Crazy cat guy, I know) After all of them left or got stolen, all I had was this one cat that got pregnant and give birth to more cats.

My cat made a nest inside my room the other day and because she was in the state of labor, she became really aggressive and cranky. So in order to avoid her fighting with the other cat, I had to close the door every time we feed them. Once I closed the door and fell asleep, leaving her inside. When I woke up, I saw this huge cat, stuck on the mirror. 😀 But she’s fine and gave birth to 3 healthy kittens.

7. In which of the 16 personalities (Myers-Briggs typology) do you classify? (Click here if you haven’t taken a test.) Do you agree with the result?


The introvert part is correct. 😀

8. Whatcha say?

– I wish to have adequate internet speed.

9. How did you come up with your username? Do you use other usernames in other sites?

– As a kid, yeah, I have a ton of username(s) I use but as I grow up and learn to forget password and usernames, I decided to just stick with one.

I got my username, nellpop, from an old online video game, Maplestory. (Ahh~ memories)

NormalPerson, however, was a generic name I came up with while trying to open up a wordpress account.

10. What do you do to unwind?

– I write, sing, run, and read novels/manga.

11. Do you hate these questions? Was this reward too troublesome for you?

– Naw, I’m glad because I have something to post 😀

11 Quick Facts About Nellpop (NormalPerson)

– I used to have a ‘Divinefist’ title using Kazuya in Tekken 5 : Dark Resurrection . (Thanks to his cheating-like-move the spinning kick that made battles far easier)
– I can’t swim
– I love sappy love song
– I’m too afraid to order from a fast-food place. (Or any place for that matter)
– I enjoy both Japanese and Korean music.
– I have a bad memory. (I tend to forget people’s name)
– I sometimes read two mangas at once, in interval. If one of it is a sad manga then the other one must be comedy.
– I’m not into self-photography (Which is quite weird from my friend’s perspective)
– My friends and I tried to cover X-Japan’s song and it ended up being a howl fest.
– It was a howl fest before we started spouting up nonsense that was supposed to be japanese.
– I have wavy hair.


Safe! And that’s it everyone. 😀
Thanks for reading.

*Unfortunately, because I’m still new in the blogging world, I’m unable to continue the death chai- I meant the award award as I have no one to nominate. 😦

However, if you’re reading this and somehow got interested, feel free to join in. 🙂




Arcade memories


Aah memories. My first encounter with the arcade was when I was still 7 or 8 years old. And it left a big mark as I was fascinated by the place, games, music, (despite it being annoying) and food like popcorn and such. It was a place of gathering for some and for others, it was a place to be alone.

Sure technology nowadays has enable us to bring the arcade back to our home with playstation, wii, xbox or whatever it is that you play but nothing could ever replace the arcade completely.

These places are now far from its glory days and usually left empty even during peak hours. Yet it never dies.
