Here's my response to that interview meme:
1.) If Itachi wasn't your favorite character (and all other Uchiha are ineligable) who would your favorite character in Naruto be and why?
You are so cruel. Well, that strikes out Itachi, Sasuke, and Madara, my top three, leaving me with... Uh........ oh, man, they're all so awesome...
A tie between Team Hawk and Sai. Excluding Sasuke, I have to count the entirety of Team Hawk as one character because they are literally all exactly the same for me in terms of awesomeness and I can't choose who is more awesome or the world would explode.
Karin-- Is totally up to something. I didn't feel like posting when I figured it out, but her whole 'fangirlism' shtick is really an act, and she has some sinister plan up her sleeve that somehow hinges on her being alone with Sasuke for more than three minutes. And her glasses make her a megane! IT ALL MAKES SENSE. Plus her snarkiness and total UST with Suigetsu is win. (BTW, Red, remember when you said you thought she experimented on him and I said I couldn't find the panel? I saw it on my reread via the American manga. It's true.)
Suigetsu--MAKES EXCUSES TO GET NAKED. COME ON. And he just has those adorable sharky teef, awww~ And he can turn into water~ And he's the most violent/trigger-happy of the team, seems like the person most likely to betray them when it became in his best interests, and then does something silly like
ATTEMPT TO SACRIFICE HIMSELF TO HOLD OFF THE HACHIBI AND LET THEM ALL GET AWAY SAFELY, AKSALDJSAKLDJASKLDJAKLDJAKLD I LOVE YOU, SUIGETSU, NEVER CHANGE~ Plus his snarkiness and total UST with Karin is win.
Juugo--IS A GIANT FREAKING TREE-HUGGING WOOBIE IN THE BODY OF A CRAZY BERSERKER, SERIOUSLY. His dynamic with Sasuke is, frankly, fascinating
, and he talks to birds~ I have a personal fanon that all Disney movies were banned from Hidden Sound because Juugo watched Bambi and flipped a shit when the hunters shot Bambi's mom. And he's hot~ and tall~ and nommable~ AND MINI-JUUGO IS EVEN CUTER CUZ HE'S ALL SMALL AND HE ALSO HELPED SACRIFICE HIMSELF FOR SASUKE, BAWWWWWWW~~~ Seriously, Sasuke, these are good people. You betray them, and I will
come eff your shit up. (But I don't think he will.)
Sai--SAI IS THE BEST CHARACTER IN THIS MANGA. NO QUESTION. He's hot, he's a good ninja, and he has the best Heel Face Turn in the history of not-Itachi characters. And he is totally hot for Sakura and she totally reciprocates~ And he is just a giant woobie on the inside. Also, his obsession with a certain word is great lulz. Ditto his complete ignorance of social norms. :D
2.) What did you eat for dinner?
Pizza and wings. Mmmm...
3.) Have you ever gotten your hair cut style from a character?
4.) Which is better, Naruto or Bleach and why?
Naruto. It has more plot, treats its female characters better (IN MY OPINION, AND NO, I'VE BEEN IN A GAZILLION THREADS DEBATING THIS POINT, AND I DON'T WANT A THOUSAND COMMENTS ON THIS. MY POST.), and generally sticks to its themes much better. Now, if this were early
Naruto versus early
Bleach, I would have said Bleach, because early Bleach was the SHIT, and I like Kubo's art better than Kishimoto's any day of the week. But I value plot and character development over pretty.
5.) Why is your first choice college your first choice? (And on that subject, ROCK ON! *throws confetti)
Colgate? Because its campus is askaldjskal gorgeous and it has a fixation with the number 13, which is completely my number, and they have cute traditions and it's a small college but also second-tier Ivy League and it has a phenomenal Japanese program and a superawesome study abroad program and just.... When I visited the campus in the fall, it was like a giant brick of "THIS IS YOUR DESTINY" fell and hit me in the face.
Ana, I'll do yours later when I find the alert. Never fear.
