Well…well…well. I think I should start this post with a bunch of “wells.” Hello my pandas! It’s been awhile. Hello, how are you all? If you hadn’t already noticed I have taken some time off from blogging. I guess you could call this an impromptu personal hiatus. I announced over on my Twitter account that I would be taking some time off due to my personal life being a bit more busier than usual. But today I wanted to get something out! So here we are…typing…and creating…and just getting out some feelings/thoughts/ideas.
I am currently in my last week at my current job. Last week I decided to put my two week notice in. I have come to the conclusion, that while I like my job well enough, it isn’t going to work out in the long run for me. My mental health and well-being aren’t worth being treated poorly for a paycheck. I am going to be taking some time off for the time being so hopefully I can get some content out for you guys! You deserve some content (and not a lazy writer who can’t keep a legitimate blogging schedule XD). Luckily, my school has sent me some extra money and I’ll be fine taking a month off. It will be nice to have a little recoup before getting a full-time job again.
That’s really all I have for you guys in terms of a life update. Doesn’t seem like much but this job was taking a lot out of me emotionally. Hence why I haven’t blogged in a bit. I am going to start looking into eat healthy again and exercising more. I feel like a blob most days and know I need step up my game in terms of nutrition/taking better care of myself. REMINDER: SELF CARE IS IMPORTANT! Take care of yourselves guys! No job, significant other, social statues, amount of followers if worth YOUR HEALTH. Please please don’t ever forget that ❤
Alright…now we can get to the good stuff! Today’s Top Ten Tuesday post is all about well written characters in anime. This list will consist of MY personal favorite characters in anime that I think are well developed and pretty perfect in terms of complexity. I was thinking about getting this out last week…but alas…obviously that didn’t happen 😛 I AM COMING THROUGH TODAY! I’m proud of myself this week. *Gives self a pat on the back* Let’s do this my pandas!
1. Tanya from Saga of Tanya the Evil
^The epitome of what it means to be an antagonist in a story.
2. Ogata from Golden Kamuy
^Just go watch Ogata’s backstory in Golden Kamuy and then we can talk.
3. Shogo from Psycho Pass
^My favorite villain in anime…and no…you can’t change my mind.
4. Satou’s Aunt from Happy Sugar Life
^I actually wrote a whole blog post on why I love Satou’s Aunt so much. You can check that out here: https://kawaiipaperpandas.com/2018/09/15/happy-sugar-life-the-masterful-art-of-mental-manipulation/
5. Yakumo from Shouwa Genroku Rakugo Shinjuu
^One day I am going to write a dedicated post on this series and it’s going to be beautiful.
6. Black from Kekkai Sensen
^We LIVE for a characters that share their body with the King of Despair.
7. Isabella from The Promised Neverland
^Mom of the Year
8. Oda from Bungou Stray Dogs
^Yes, Dazai is my favorite…but Oda…Oda is the real MVP of this series.
9. Phosphophyllite from Land of the Lustrous
^I really hope we get a season 2 of Land of the Lustrous so you guys can see what type of gem Phos morphs into. Volume 8 of the manga was INCREDIBLE.
10. Magane from Re:Creators
^I STILL can’t get over Magane as a character. She deserves so much recognition! I also wrote a blog post about her a little while back. You can check that out here if you like: https://kawaiipaperpandas.com/2018/05/06/sunday-spotlight-is-a-lie-within-a-lie-a-truth-or-a-lie/
And there you have it my pandas! A blog post after many days of me not blogging. I am sure you all understand where I am coming from.

This site wouldn’t be where it is today without all of you. I hope you guys will be patient with me in the following weeks to come. Thanks for stopping by and I will see you guys in my next post. MUAH! XOXO
