30 Day Anime Challenge: Day 18 (And Then There Was The Girl)

30-day-anime-challenge18

I’m just gonna go for Ryou’s girl for this one. Or wait, Ryou is her boy? πŸ€”Β  Anyway, they are each others.

Alice Nakiri in Shokugeki no Soma. I love her. She is feisty, smart when not dumb, inventive with her cooking and funny as hell. And, Ryou is her boy (but not that romantic kind of way, more like a servant gone rouge kind of way.) She is a very pushy girl who wants it her way and she hates to lose, especially to her cousin Erina. But, she is also very friendly and likable.

Someone has made a video about her with some nice facts:

And some fun clips with her just so you can see exactly how funny she is.

Watch Shokugeki no Soma if you haven’t. There’s a lot of cooking, competing and fan service (which I would live with out but to be fair, it’s not only the girls clothes falling or boobs showing) but there is also Alice and Ryou.

    1. I haven’t read Food Wars, only seen it on TV, but I plan on reading it when I have time. Toriko is new to me, I have never heard of it. Have to check it out.

  1. Nice, she’s a cool character. What did you think of the second season of food wars? It was so bad for me that I couldn’t put myself through the process of watching ep 13 meaning I dropped it at episode 12/13.

    1. How can you drop it just before the last episode?! That’s just crazy. *silly person* Nah, I liked it. It might have been a bit slow maybe. Or, not slow but, idk how to describe it. I think that sometimes these competitions are taking too long. It felt like this whole season was just one long competition. It wasn’t because it was that part with the restaurants too and I liked that very much. I can say that I thought season 3 was very much better. Not so much competition like that and also, there was a twist and the show got a lot darker. So, I look forward to april when it continues.

      1. I felt like every episode was the exact same and the food explosions weren’t doing anything for me. Each episode was so boring and I thought it was only 12 episodes and was angry that there was 13 that I just dropped it there.

        I don’t care about finishing the show, it’s dead to me after that reveal, I’ve basically seen it already because season 2 was basically the same episode repeated over and over again. I don’t think I’ll continue it until a long time in the future when I’ve watched other shows.

      2. Yeah, I am not that thrilled about the food explosions either. But there aren’t that much in season 3. They are focused on so much else. I enjoyed that season a lot more.

        If you feel like that for it then there is no point in continuing it. I mean, that’s why one is dropping it. πŸ˜‰ I just dropped Devilman.

      3. aw ep 1 looked alright, did it get worse or did you just not like it in the first place?

        I swear that the competition in season 2 is for the preliminaries to a much larger competition? Isn’t that what the third season is?

      4. It was more that it felt like I was missing something. It felt sort of empty. I don’t mind the gore and the sex, nor the visuals so it wasn’t that. Idk, I was uneasy when I watched it and it never got better. I saw 4 episodes all together. It just doesn’t feel like it is worth the time. I do like the premises for it and I think it could be a really good story but after reading Karandis review of it I come to understand that it is more shallow than I would like. It’s more like they want to chock the viewers than anything.

        Season three is half moon festival where they have food stalls and sort of compete, like who earns the most money. No food explosions or naked jurys. Second half is about the elite ten and the turning point. Some competition but not like in the other seasons.

      5. The story of Crybaby looked pretty bad, the strength was it’s interesting visuals in my opinion with crazy scenes. I can understand that you dropped it at that though.

        I like the idea of competing for money but I’m not sure about the top ten, I guess I’ll have to try it at some point in the future!

        Liked by 1 person

      6. The earning of money is more what stall makes the most money. It’s not like they get it. As for the elite ten, they are not competing about getting a seat or anything. It’s something completely different but I can’t really say because it will spoil it. It’s darker than that.

      7. Oh I see, thank you for clearing that up!

        How high are the steaks in the show? And don’t turn that into a meat joke! If the steaks are quite high I might watch it, but I’ve seen shows where people’s eyes, fingers and bodies have been on the line for the outcome of something as simple as a small game so high steaks might be a bit different for me!

      8. Uhm, I can’t really say that much about what happens without spoiling the whole end of the season. A lot happens that changes the lives for a lot of people. Ugh, I am so not good at explaining without spoiling. This is exactly the reason why I am not writing reviews. πŸ™„ But it’s not like people are getting killed or getting their fingers chopped off or anything. It doesn’t turn into Evil or live. So what you see as high stakes depends on your priorities I guess. They are there to become masterchefs and events might make their priorities change. I’m sorry, I can’t give you a better answer.

      9. Well the process of getting there kind of put me off really, I might have cared once but the whole competition arc put me off the entire thing. I would honestly feel the exact same way if someone told me the ending so I didn’t think it was worth finishing.

    I actually had to think a bit about supporting female character, but then it came to me: Yuuki from Sword Art Online. She is awesome…bit at the same time her story is very sad as well….so recommend keeping tissues close at hand of you have yet to see her appearance πŸ˜€πŸ˜€

    1. I haven’t seen SAO. Since people seem so negative about it I haven’t dared yet, because I fear it will be as bad as everyone seem to think. I really shouldn’t listen to others though since I might have the opposite taste of everyone else. πŸ€ͺ So, maybe I’ll give it a try one rainy day.

      Believe me, I had to think a lot too. Well, that was before I figured out that I was gonna have Ryou as the male supporting. After that it was easy. But I have been thinking about the female for a few days actually before I even thought about the male because I figured that would be harder than the male. It was the opposite actually. Go figure.

      4. I went to bed right before this post, that’s how tired I was. Don’t think I could fall asleep though. πŸ™„ I am trying to get some healthy sleep patterns but I am failing miserably here. Ah well, one day perhaps.

        Liked by 1 person

      5. Well….you probably won’t believe this but I think I managed to catch about 5 hours of sleep last night. The reason: because I was still reading posts and replying to comments and just had to reblog a post. And…now I am at work and am feeling like a complete and total zombie πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚

      6. 5 hours?!! That is just way to little, even for a crazy person. 😴 Replying to comments! Yeah, I saw in some comment (!) somewhere that you get an awful lot of comments and you are such a nice guy and answer them all. And I saw your repost just before I was gonna turn out my lights so I of course had to watch the video… All of it! So I fell asleep way too late too. πŸ˜‚ That’s for going to bed early. I really shouldn’t check in on WP and FB before I turn out the lights. I always do that, only to briefly see if anything has happened, without the intention to interact (read answer messages and writing comments because I know I will get stuck and all night will disappear.)

      7. Haha, yeah I have felt that all day I must say, but then again sleep is overrated anyway lol. And luckily it is almost weekend so I guess that is a good thing as well 😊😊
        Ooooppsssss….sorry, so I guess I’m in a way responsible for you going to sleep late because of that reblog. My bad πŸ˜…πŸ˜…
        I check in way too often on WP these days…even at work I try to keep up with things, but of course failing miserably. The only reason I still have FB is because of messenger, where I stay in touch with people I would otherwise never be able to speak to anymore. But that’s about it.
        But comments on WP….wel…yeah I guess you can say I really love interacting with everyone 😊😊

      8. You know what the funny thing is? You post came directly above his post in my reader. So I thought at first that I saw double. πŸ˜‚ Then I started to read yours and realised that it was a reblog and went to his instead. I am insanely impressed by his thank you video. I am not even halfway to a hundred yet but maybe I should think of something already now because someday I might reach that threshold too. I am never in my life gonna show myself on a camera like that but something fun should be done. πŸ€”

        I only have FB because I am in some fan groups for a group I was a huge fan of for a couple of years ago. We only keep in contact that way. I have no “normal” friends there. No family and such. So I more or less check in there five minutes every day if anything is going on and that’s all.

        And of course you are going to hit a 100! You are kidding me here right? Well…I reckon over in the weekend you will get some new followers 😬😬😬 (no clue as to why yet though πŸ˜‡πŸ˜‡πŸ˜‡). And I am sure you will think of something fun when that time comesπŸ˜€

      10. I am never kidding when it comes to these things. I never thought my videos on YT would get any views either so when they got a 1000 I was surprised. Then one of them was rushing off and suddenly it reached one million and I was in chock. So, I never assume anything. I only get disappointed when it doesn’t happen. Better to believe I will only have 49 followers. (I have 46 now so I am a little positive that I will gain a few more. 😎 )

      12. It’s raining me…awards! Hallelujah! It’s rai… β˜”οΈ I’ve got one I haven’t answered yet too. I am gonna try to do it this weekend.

        My YT is only AMVs so it isn’t that interesting to be honest. Mostly boys love to please my fellow fujoshis. I was once engaged in that community and it is a good way to earn views. Also, those videos are kind of fun to do. Well, I have some others as well of course. It’s interesting because when you do normal stuff that doesn’t involve boys kissing there is always someone commenting and complaining about the lack of boys kissing. They question me why I haven’t done a boys love video and why didn’t I do that. As if they decide what I am gonna do. Annoying viewers. 😝

        Hmm, well maybe if I have some time in the weekend I will check out the YT channel. I promise to not leave annoying comments πŸ˜‡πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚
        Haha, YouTube comments can at times be brutal. I have seen some discussions there that really are quite honestly frightening at times. I’m so glad that everyone on WordPress is just much more civilised and friendly 😊😊

      14. There are so many trolls on YT it’s frightening. I haven’t had that many of them. Which is surprising considering some of my videos content. People tend to be very provoked by gay sex. Have no clue why. πŸ˜‡ I try to avoid the comments section, not only on my videos but everywhere there. It’s too toxic and I only get upset by all the stupid people. It’s a shame, there could be so many nice discussions but nope, it’s just name calling and insults all over.

        Only check it out if you have time, it is not mandatory at all. 😎 I don’t even know if I have given you the link to it? https://www.youtube.com/c/tinyuglyanimal

        You should have as a goal to do one award a month or maybe one every other week or something. The thing with awards are that they take so much time. At least for me because I tend to ramble on when I answer the questions. The one I have now is the Liebster and there is 11 questions. I will get to it this weekend is my plan. It is fun to do them though. πŸ€—

      15. YouTube can definitely be horrible with comments. I never place comments there as there are some people who seem determined to start World War III right there. It’s probably people who feel powerful by being anonimous, and think they can pretty much say anything. Haha…people tend to be very judgemental, I think that’s probably the reason why. And I think that is so incredibly stupid, but hey, maybe that’s just me.
        Thanks for the link. I will definitely check it out, and will probably do that on sunday 😊😊
        I’m not kidding here…this is no joke: but I still have about 60 awards posts that I haven’t done yet. As you say, I love them, and I also appreciate them every single time. But there were times when I received two or three awards each week. I just could not keep up anymore. As much as I like them too, I just could not fit them in. It became a little bit too much. But I do plan on doing a few of them this year, and as you say so probably one or two each month😊😊 Looking forward to the Liebster Award post. Have a great weekend: I’m sure I will talk to you somewhere in the upcoming days 😊😊

      16. I got another one after the Liebster. 😳 I’m thinking that if you have 60, some of them must be the same, right? You can do them all in like a collaborated post and not one at a time. Sure, if there are questions it’s gonna be a fuck load of questions in one post but still. Otherwise, one a week and you’ll be done in a year. πŸ€—

        But isn’t it interesting that on YT the community is so nasty while here it is a very soft and encouraging community. The tumblr community is very special, they can be very judgemental and are very hesitant to let people in but once you are in you are in. But, it takes too much time and work to be worthy of the people there. It’s not really a welcoming atmosphere. And FB is special in it’s own way, as Twitter; that is very limited by it’s characters you can write. And on many of those places the same people are moving about. Strange.

      17. Yeah I think I have about 11 Liebster awards…but to do them in one post would just be too much. People would probably get in pain because of the amount of scrolling they had to do. But yeah am probably going to bundle a few of them together. Still as much fun as they are, those posts will be a pain to write though lol πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚
        It really is interesting and I have been wondering quite a lot about why that is. Even when I wrote my rant post for star wars, people that didn’t agree with me were still very kind every time they replied. YouTube though is just a complete and open Battle Royal. The only thing that’s missing is some machetes and submachine guns lol.
        I have never been on tumblr, so can’t really judge one that. It doesn’t sound. That great though.
        FB is something I am a bit fed up with…too many people posting like 7000 things on a given day. Got bored by that lolπŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚
        Twitter is fun. I don’t really place many texts there, but still it’s fun..exactly because it is so limiting 😊😊

      18. Haha, yeah how many question is that; 122 right. That would be an awful lot of scrolling.

        I was very close to shut down my fb yesterday. 😳 Only reason not to do it was because I have saved some videos with recipes I want to save. It’s sad that that is the only reason though.

        I have a twitter but I only use it for game spam from one game I play. I should maybe start to use it properly but I try to limit my social media. It got overboard at one point. I had a very active Twitter once; over 12000 tweets. I shut it down. I couldn’t handle it, I just got into heated argument about immigration and common misconceptions about Sweden and stupid politicans. so yeah, I left. My biggest achievement though was me being blocked by one of the most (in)famous journalists in the country three (!) times. That is something. *satisfied* He is a narcissistic asshole so I’m okey with it.

        The only reason I haven’t shut down FB is because it’s easy to talk to people on messenger in that way. But it’s been ages ago since I last put something on there though. I don’t know, I just don’t really like it.
        Over 12000 Tweets?!? Whoa…that really is a lot…I don’t even know how many tweets I placed (again…total noob lol πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚).
        But that really is an awesome achievement: so I guess you are famous now! But I guess you still did something right though, for him to keep blocking you, but also return again, you must have made him think as well 😊😊
        Well, I mainly use my twitter for my blog these days…and the occasional tweet about nothing lol πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚

      20. It was 12000 since 2012 I think. So I’ve been at it for a while. And when you end up in discussions it can become one to many. It’s not healthy in the end.

        Well, he is one of a kind. I might, or might not, have insinuated that he might be a troll at some point. He didn’t like that. But he did act like one, writing stupid, provoking tweets. People who have public jobs should think one more time before they write things others can read. But the first time I just happened to be following someone he didn’t like and in the process he just blocked me because he blocked that guy. The logic. πŸ˜‚ The last time I can’t even remember why. πŸ€” And I have no idea why he unblocked me either. The last time he never did so I guess he has some sort of third strike or something. πŸ˜‚

        Well some people I guess can be very annoying. I haven’t really been a part of a tweeting community so to speak, but I have seen some people exchanging comments in ways that go seriously overboard on twitter (although it is much worse on YouTube as we discussed πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚).
        I can’t even remember when I first activated my twitter account. I do know it was out of pure boredom as I was staying at a hotel at the time because my house was being renovated. I searched for something to pass the time with lol πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚

        I don’t know why I got that old account. Probably because someone else thought it would be a good idea. I know I didn’t post that much then. The new on I have only had since this fall and I have it to post Tweets from my beloved Virgin Boy game. You get extra time if you post a thing on twitter so of course I had to make an account only for that. Also, I needed to secure my name. 😎

        Well, passing time with Twitter, it is doable. πŸ˜‚

        I don’t think I can name my top 3. πŸ€” There are so many out there and it changes when I watch something. Also, it depends on the genre because I can’t really count my BL into the regular anime. I look at different things in BL than I do in regular anime. Ugh, I should have to think about it.
