30 Day Anime Challenge: Day 13 (Someone Like Me)


I am not working. I am not socializing other than through the internet. I walk outside without make up (something I have never used anyway but still). I don’t care too much about how I dress.Β  I prefer ready made meals before cooking if I just was given the chance (which is hard when you are not alone in your family. Others have demands on healthy, nutritious food). I only clean if I am gonna have visitors or when I get extremely nervous. I have social anxiety and meeting new people make me blush and get fidgety and stutter, or be very quiet. If I play online I would not play as myself, I would make a character as far from myself as possible….

Who am I?

There really is only one that fits that description. I love Recovery of an MMO Junkie to bits and a lot has to do with Morioka. There was so much in her that is in me too. I can identify myself in her down to the rolling of the carpet. She is a mature woman who has worked hard, devoting herself to her job without really getting too much from it. Always helped if help was wanted. I used to be like that. I was always the one they called if they needed someone to do overtime. “You can come in, right?”, “You can stay a little longer.” “Why don’t you do this, you are so dependable.”, “You are so reliable.” The list goes on, but still despite all the hard work it never paid off. All it did was drive me into a wall. So, I finally quit and ended up in front of my TV and playstation 2. Day and night. Not online since it wasn’t an option. I made a few more tries but I work too hard and am too loyal so here I am now, living my life on the internet. (it sounds harsh and it might not be as bad as it sounds but it is close.)


Morioka and me, if it were in real life we would probably pass each other on the street and not notice each other. We would end up in the same online game and not belong to the same guild because there can only be one of us in each guild. We would not work at the same department in the company at the same time because she would probably be my replacement or I hers. I just wish there was a Sakurai for me out there, like Sakurai is there for her.

    1. It’s a very good anime I think because I can relate. I don’t know how much a teenager and a boy to boot can though. πŸ€” Then again, one doesn’t always have to be able to relate to something to like it. πŸ€—

  1. I really have heard so many great things about this anime. As March will be the anime theme on my blog, maybe this one will make the cut 😊
    Oh yeah: one other thing. I can only tell from reading your post, and your comments that always make me smile: you are a great person. So even though you might have social anxiety, you have no trouble making a connection here. That means: it’s inside you. In the end it all comes down to having confidence in yourself. And you might not always have that: but trust in others to at times give you that confidence. I believe that there is someone out there for everyone: so there is a Sakurai out there for you as well. Loved this post, because it shared something very personal. And that’s not only brave to do: it’s pretty darn amazing of you as well! πŸ˜€πŸ˜€

    1. You are the sweetest. 😊 I actually have someone but he’s not exactly like Sakurai, sweet, nerdy, cute and flustered. I can’t get him to conform into a cute girl when playing online. He’s more of a GTA ruffian. 😩😎

      As for personal, yeah, I tend to share too much sometimes but that’s who I am. You should have read that first blog I had. πŸ˜±πŸ™ˆ It’s a good thing they closed down that place (it was way before wp ever existed)

      You should definitely watch MMO. It’s such a heartwarming, endearing story. It’s so wonderful (can’t come up with the right word now but I think you understand what I mean) to watch two mc that are not annoying teens falling in awkward love with all that comes with it.

      1. Well, there is nothing wrong with sharing personal stuff at all. As I said I only think it makes you very brave, as it really sometimes isn’t easy to share these things 😊
        I’m glad to read you have someone though πŸ˜€πŸ˜€
        I will be making a selection for my theme month in March (and probably do the same thing I did for the sci-fi/horror theme month of February, that is taking requests from readers). So I think that this one will hopefully make the cut as I am very interested in it πŸ˜€πŸ˜€

      2. I look forward to see what you get in February. And March of course. I think it’s a great idea. If I wasn’t so easily pressured by that stuff that I get anxiety I would do something like that too but I better just be a free flowing bird… or something. πŸ˜‰

        Yeah, I got my man. I should probably have written that I wish I had my Lily and not Sakurai. Someone like her in the game (you’ll understand when you watch it). But in a way I do because I have you guys who comment and read my nonsense and react. ❀ I just won't meet you outside internet like she does with Lily/Sakurai.

      3. I understand. If there is one thing that I have always felt that is the most important thing about blogging: it’s having fun. You should never do things that give pressure. It’s one of the reasons that I myself for instance don’t really have a schedule for my blog. I just post when I want to, not because it’s required by a schedule 😊
        And who knows maybe in the future you will think of a cool similar project. And if you ever want to do a collab or something: feel free to contact me πŸ˜‰
        And just for the record: you are not writing nonsense πŸ˜€
        I’m looking forward to seeing what’s coming up in February and March myself as well. But there is also another project that is new for my blog this year…and that’s coming up by the end of the month…..and it has to do with blogging πŸ˜€

      4. Oh, exciting! Even more to look forward to. πŸ€—

        There is a lot of collabs happening now. It sounds like so much fun but as with all things I am unsure of how to do I just think I will fuck it up. How does a collab really work? (You I can ask because I think you maybe don’t think I am completely stupid for asking. πŸ™„πŸ˜³πŸ˜)

      5. Haha: I don’t even think for a single second you are stupid at all to ask this 😊
        It can work in several ways. I have done only one collab so far. It was with Auri, and she had a cool idea. We both watched the same movie: i watched the first part and had to predict how the movie ended. She watched the last part and had to guess what had happened in the first part.
        We both sent our drafts over by email, and after we were both cool with the content, we published πŸ˜€
        But this is just one way: you can think of questions to ask each other over a same anime, write a review for the same anime together, etc…etc..😊
        These are just some random thoughts, but that’s pretty much how it works πŸ˜€

      6. Wow, that is such a cool idea! It would be fun to do something, maybe not exactly that since you have already done it but something quirky like it. Do I make sense? I like the idea now that you have explained. Yeah, i shouldn’t feel stupid for asking, I know that. It’s is deeply rooted… I’m too old for feeling stupid! πŸ˜‰ Been there, done that, over with it. Right? Hehe.

      7. Haha: yeah I understand what you mean and you definitely make sense. Well I’m definitely game so if you got a quirky idea let me know, and we can make it work πŸ˜€πŸ˜€ Looking forward to it!
        And yes, no need to feel stupid at all. It was a very good question in the first place! πŸ˜€
