Hello, hello my pandas!

It’s been a hot minute hasn’t it? Yes it has! Well here I am bringing you guys another Top Ten Tuesday. At least I can push these post out with ease (P.S. I am also trying to recover from this week’s episode of Attack on Titan. Episode 54 was emotionally brutal even though I know all the spoilers) XD

I’ve been wanting to write more analytical post but haven’t quite come up with a specific topic yet. I’m sure something will eventually come to my mind! Until then you guys get Top Ten Tuesday post to keep you occupied. I think I’ll be doing my What’s Coming Up Wednesday post tomorrow since spring anime is more than half way over now. Can’t believe summer watch season is just around the corner! Seems like it was just yesterday we were still in winter season. Granted…the weather has been relatively cool in Oregon as of late, but summer will be here in a matter of weeks and I’ll be once again complaining about how hot it is. But alas! I FINALLY got an A/C unit for my bedroom so I won’t have to go another summer without air conditioning. Maybe having the A/C will boost my overall moral this season? Only time will tell!

Today’s Top Ten Tuesday was inspired by a fellow anime blogger. Alexie the Great gave me this idea a few months back (thanks again Alexie!) and I felt like it was finally time to put it into action. Here we are! Today’s list is all the anime worlds I would like to visit or where I would like to be reincarnated if I was summoned. You know…like Re:Zero or The Rising of the Shield Hero. Yeah! Just like that. Let’s get this world summoning party started.

1. Land of the Lustrous

^Who doesn’t want to be a cute gemstone that fights off aliens from the moon?

2. Howl’s Moving Castle

^Give me all the witches, and wizards, and moving castles please.

3. As Miss Beelzebub Likes

^Hell doesn’t seem so bad if you get to play with fluffy creatures all the time ❤

4. Digimon

^I would LOVE to fulfill my childhood fantasy of being a DigiDestined.

5. Space Dandy

^Risk roaming around space being an alien hunter? You bet your sweet ass I would!

6. Rokuhoudou Yotsuiro Biyori

^I just wanna eat all the yummy food they made in this show!

7. Laid Back Camp

^Sometimes you just need some good wholesome relaxation.

8. Myriad Colors Phantom World

^I wanna have cool powers and abilities.

9. Fruits Basket

^I wanna have fun with all the zodiac animals too!

10. Sailor Moon

^Specifically Crystal Tokyo so I can worship Neo-Queen Serenity and all her glory.

I have to say…I have some pretty good choices on here if I do say so myself! What anime worlds would you like to visit/be reincarnated in if given the opportunity? Would you want to be involved in worlds that have high risk but high reward…like Sword Art Online, Gurren Lagann, or 91 Days to name a few? Let me know all your thoughts, comments, and opinions down below! Thank you for joining me today. I better go check out what is coming up for summer season so I can push out a post for y’all tomorrow! Remember to always stay kawaii and cuddly my pandas. Muah! XOXO

The seven deadly sins.

And no…I’m not talking about the anime series. I am talking about the seven deadly sins, also known as the cardinal sins, which are the grouping/classification of vices within Christian teachings. These sins are Pride, Greed, Lust, Envy, Gluttony, Wrath, and Sloth. All seven of these sins are often thought to be abuse or excessive versions of one’s natural faculties or passions.

As my lovely friends over on Wikipedia write, “While the seven deadly sins as we know them did not originate with the Greeks or Romans, there were ancient precedents for them. Aristotle’s Nicomachean Ethics lists several positive, healthy human qualities, excellencies, or virtues. Aristotle argues that for each positive quality there are two negative vices that are found on each extreme of the virtue. Courage, for example, is the human excellence or virtue in facing fear and risk. Excessive courage makes one rash, while a deficiency of courage makes one cowardly. This principle of virtue found in the middle or “mean” between excess and deficiency is Aristotle’s notion of the golden mean. Aristotle lists virtues like courage, temperance or self-control, generosity, “greatness of soul,” proper response to anger, friendliness, and wit or charm.”

If you want more of a history lesson on the seven deadly sins you can head on over to Wikipedia to read more or check out this website dedicated to all of the sins: http://www.deadlysins.com/. Or if you are feeling extra lazy and don’t want a complete history in regard to this subject you can check out the anime Nanatsu no Taizai (The Seven Deadly Sins) for a more entertaining form of education based around these sins. Ooorrr if you are looking for something more entertaining with some fan service you can check out the anime Sin: Nanatsu no Taizai (Seven Mortal Sins) for a sexified version of these sins 😉

But I am here to bring you guys a collab, not a history lesson. Today’s collab is with none other than Alexie the Great! Yes, that’s right my pandas. Alexie and I are back at it again. We are here to discuss which anime characters would embody each sin if given the opportunity. Down below you will find an explanation of each sin, Alexie’s character choice for said sin, and my character choice right below his. So…let’s get to sinning! (P.S. all of the explanations of each sin will be from Wikipedia cause I’m a lazy asshole today and don’t want to summarize each one in my own words XD)

Lust: Lust, or lechery, is intense longing. It is usually thought of as intense or unbridled sexual desire, which leads to fornication, adultery, rape, bestiality, and other immoral sexual acts. However, lust could also mean simply desire in general; thus, lust for money, power, and other things are sinful. Lust, if not managed properly, can subvert propriety.

Alexie’s Choice: I almost went with Sanji from One Piece here, but that seems too easy a pick to be honest. So, who else could be considered Lust in anime? Perhaps Jiraiya could be considered lustful? He’s also an easy pick for lust, but seriously, both of these characters are lustful for women. Maybe they need to battle. Who wins? You decide!

Ayano’s Choice: I had a tough time on how I wanted to categorize my choice for this sin. In all retrospect, Elsa from Re:Zero could also be placed under Gluttony and Greed, but I went with Lust because, not only is Elsa ungodly sexy, but she is also lustful for disemboweling her enemies.  Elsa personality and character traits scream all three of these sins, but Lust seems to have more of an edge when it comes to her. Elsa is also a battle maniac in the series, and does not hesitate to injure herself when she is fighting opponents. I feel like she has a lust for battle and her persistence on cleaving through the abdominal region with the intent of tearing out her target’s bowels seems pretty lustful to me.

Gluttony: Gluttony is the overindulgence and over-consumption of anything to the point of waste. The word derives from the Latin gluttire, meaning to gulp down or swallow. In Christianity, it is considered a sin if the excessive desire for food causes it to be withheld from the needy. Because of these scripts, gluttony can be interpreted as selfishness; essentially placing concern with one’s own impulses or interests above the well-being or interests of others.

Alexie’s Choice: Monkey D. Luffy from One Piece. Okay, while Luffy’s gluttony might not be a sin, I literally couldn’t think of anyone else for this one. Luffy is a glutton for sure, he’ll eat and eat and eat, and hates not eating…so there’s that. Oh, except for this scene here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lB0aJokDc7Q Want to be sad? Watch that. Or you know…if you don’t understand Luffy’s gluttony.

Ayano’s Choice: Honestly, Ban from the Seven Deadly Sins is known as the Fox sin of Greed, but I would take him more so as a glutton for punishment. To me, he is more gluttonous than anything. His selfish ornate desire to bring back Elaine is what drives him throughout the series. Sure he has shown us some aspects of greed, but his selfish desire is reckless and impulsive. While Ban loves all the members of his party, especially Melidos, his interest for raising Elaine from the dead comes before anyone else’s well-being or interest. That is literally the definition of Gluttony.

Greed: Also known as avarice, cupidity, or covetousness, is, like lust and gluttony, a sin of desire. However, greed (as seen by the Church) is applied to an artificial, rapacious desire and pursuit of material possessions. Hoarding of materials or objects, theft and robbery, especially by means of violence, trickery, or manipulation of authority are all actions that may be inspired by greed.

Alexie’s Choice: Naofumi. Yep, I’m going with the controversial Shield Hero here. In my eyes, he is greedy. Sure, he was treated like shit as soon as he arrived and he made matters worse with his reactions to the king of whatever-the-fuck-country-it-is (I don’t remember the name, obviously), but what happened after that? He doesn’t like people and extorts, or extorted, them for as much money as he could. He did what he had to in order to survive as the “Devil of the Shield,” but come on! He was all “This is my money, I deserve to be treated like X and given Y,” or whatever it was. Now, he has grown in the 30+ episodes we have, but Greed was something that Naofumi embodied in the early stages of the show. I’m sure someone can add more to this, or even refute it, but I still see Naofumi as a greedy POS.

Ayano’s Choice: I definitely think of Charioce from Rage of Bahamut: Virgin Soul when I think of the sin Greed. Charioce was revered as a powerful and influential King over his kingdom. Hell…his own people even feared him. Charioce will also do anything to eliminate his enemies who stand in his way. We also see how stoic he is throughout the series, only truly showing his more gentler side when he is with Nina. I had a love/hate relationship with Charioce throughout the whole season of Virgin Soul. He was one King you didn’t want to piss off!

Sloth: Refers to a peculiar jumble of notions, dating from antiquity and including mental, spiritual, pathological, and physical states. It may be defined as absence of interest or habitual disinclination to exertion. Sloth has also been defined as a failure to do things that one should do. By this definition, evil exists when “good” people fail to act.

Alexie’s Choice: Nezumi (The Rat) from Juni Taisen. Okay, here’s the Rat for you: “I sleep about sixteen hours a day and only do what I need to do in order to survive.” Okay, okay…there was more to his sleepiness than what I’ve said here, but…Sloth. That’s it. He’s totally Sloth.

Ayano’s Choice: How could I not choose Houtarou from Hyouka for Sloth? The kid lives by the motto of “conserving energy.” He’s calm, passive, and never likes to exert effort on anything unless it is absolutely necessary. While most of the time he can be perceived as lazy or unmotivated, Houtarou is surprisingly smart and clever.  I find it kind of funny that no matter how hard Houtarou tries to conserve his energy, he always manages to waste more throughout the anime.

Wrath: Can be defined as uncontrolled feelings of anger, rage, and even hatred. Wrath often reveals itself in the wish to seek vengeance. In its purest form, wrath presents with injury, violence, and hate that may provoke feuds that can go on for centuries. Wrath may persist long after the person who did another a grievous wrong is dead. Feelings of wrath can manifest in different ways, including impatience, hateful misanthropy, revenge, and self-destructive behavior, such as drug abuse or suicide.

Alexie’s Choice: Laughing Coffin Guild in Sword Art Online. Okay…I know this isn’t a single character, but come on! In a game where if you get killed you die in real life these guys decided to become a PK (player-killer) guild. You could literally be a shop owner, or be training to become part of the front lines, or whatever you wanted if it was viable within Aincrad and these guys think, “Yeah, let’s murder people.” If killing isn’t wrathful I don’t know what is. Sure there are better choices for this, but Laughing Coffin came to my mind for some reason and I think they fit.

Ayano’s Choice: I was going to go with Bakugo from My Hero Academia on this one, but Bakugo doesn’t have the same hatred that Tomura has in the series. Tomura’s personality is sinister and has warped into something I can only imagine. The dude literally doesn’t even care about his own life. He has no qualms about killing any of the students throughout the show, as he hates everything that breaths. He is arrogant, demanding, and angry at the world. I guess that’s why everyone calls him a “man-child” because he likes to throw tantrums like a child. We all know how much Tomura wants revenge on the Pro Heroes Association and All Might. He is the perfect character for the sin of Wrath.

Envy: Like greed and lust, is characterized by an insatiable desire. It can be described as a sad or resentful covetousness towards the traits or possessions of someone else. It arises from vainglory, and severs a man from his neighbor. Malicious envy is similar to jealousy in that they both feel discontent towards someone’s traits, status, abilities, or rewards. A difference is that the envious also desire the entity and covet it. Envy can be directly related to the Ten Commandments, specifically, “Neither shall you covet … anything that belongs to your neighbor”—a statement that may also be related to greed.

Alexie’s Choice: Darcia from Wolf’s Rain. Yep, what was his main goal again? Oh, right! His goal was to have what the wolves Kiba; Tsume; Hige; Blue; and Toboe have and control Cheza. Darcia hated not having his own way of reaching the so-called Paradise that the lunar flowers lead to—if you could fucking smell the things—and did everything he could to have what our protagonists had. He wanted Paradise, and eventually there was a point where he knew that the wolves and Cheza’s reaction to them were the only way he was going to reach that Paradise if he could.

Ayano’s Choice: I mean…is there a more obvious choice other than Yuno Gasai for this sin? Yuno is the envious of all envious when it comes to Yuki. The bitch murders people who get too close to Yuki and no one can stop her. SHE MURDERS HER OWN DAMN SELF so she can be with Yuki in another alternate timeline. That is some sick, twisted, and envious shit if you ask me. Yuno is definitely the sin of Envy and no…you can’t change my mind.

Pride: Pride is considered, on almost every list, the original and most serious of the seven deadly sins: the perversion of the faculties that make humans more like God—dignity and holiness. It is also thought to be the source of the other capital sins. Also known as hubris (from ancient Greek ὕβρις), or futility, it is identified as dangerously corrupt selfishness, the putting of one’s own desires, urges, wants, and whims before the welfare of other people. In even more destructive cases, it is irrationally believing that one is essentially and necessarily better, superior, or more important than others, failing to acknowledge the accomplishments of others, and excessive admiration of the personal image or self (especially forgetting one’s own lack of divinity, and refusing to acknowledge one’s own limits, faults, or wrongs as a human being).

Alexie’s Choice: Ino (The Boar) from Juuni Taisen. Queue “my father won the last Juuni Taisen twelve years ago so fuck you…I’m going to win this entire contest like he did.” The Boar of Juuni Taisen was simply pride incarnate; she was so sure of herself and her no-reload dual machine guns that the thought of losing didn’t even cross her mind. She was going to win and that was that, end of story. Remind me of how well that worked out again?

Ayano’s Choice: Satsuki in Kill la Kill is prideful to say the least. She is intelligent, calculating, unwavering and iron-fisted. I guess you have to be if you want to have the whole school wrapped around your finger. In order to rule the school Satsuki believes that the weak and foolish must be kept under ordinance. Satsuki is pragmatic and determined, but she is not heartless. She is willing to cast her pride aside when the occasion arises in order to secure victory over others, even if that instance threatens her life. Satsuki believes that great causes are born from personal desires. It was great to see Satsuki evolve and change throughout the series. Her pride turned into something more soft and palatable. Great character development on studio Triggers part.

I’ve been wanting to make a dedicated Top Ten Tuesday centered around androgynous characters for some time now. It has always been at the back of my mind. Today is that day my pandas! I am here to bring you some of my favorite androgynous characters in anime. But first! An ode to androgyny (this poem was written by a user named Nikki No Love on Hello Poetry. You can find the poem here: https://hellopoetry.com/words/androgynous/):

Depression is masculine,
Happiness is feminine, 
Anger is androgynous, 
Fear is anonymous. To see ones self is to hate even more,
To think of one’s self is to think of what’s in store
Oh, how the body is false,
The mind is a prison made of faults.
Stuck inside as I walk the line,
Forced inside to where the sun never shines.” 

Let’s just jump right on in to today’s list!

1. Kohaku from Midnight Occult Civil Servants

First things first. Happy Mother’s day to all the Momma’s out there!

Be sure to give your Mom a big hug and a kiss and thank her today for putting up with you all these years. I hope everyone has a wonderful day with their Moms if you are spending time together. I couldn’t be with my Mom today as I live a few hours away from home now. But I did send her a nice card and gift in the mail! Gotta make sure I spoil her, even if I don’t live at home anymore. ❤

Today isn’t just about Mother’s though. Today is also about some of our fellow content creators! I asked some of you on Twitter last week to share a post you are most proud of. It could have been written this year or any other time in your content creating years. And boy do I have some good stuff for all of you to check out! So let’s get this creative party started! Be sure to follow all of these AMAZING creators on their blog or social media. I will be posting links of everyone’s sites so you can 😀

Leth over at Lethargic Ramblings hasn’t created much content this year due to the craziness of his personal life, but he did manage to submit a post based around why you should have fun with anime watching. We love a good informative semi-ranty blog post 😉 You can check that post out here:


Next, we have Jon Spencer Reviews coming in with a sentimental and heartfelt open letter dedicated to Violet Evergarden. I have talked about this post before but it is nice to share it again with you all. His post actually inspired me to write my own letter to P.A. Works a few months back. You can read Jon’s letter here:


And you can read my letter here:


My girl Ano_Nora not only submitted a blog post about her experience at this years SakuraCon, but also a music video. The video is super duper fun and it made me super jelly that I missed out on all the Con fun. Hopefully we get to meet up at the end of the year for Kumoricon in November! You can read all about SakuraCon here:


And watch her video here:

YumDeku took on the concept of Kakashi Hatake from Boruto: Naruto Next Generations having a son in their blog post. Personally, I have never seen Naruto or Boruto but I know many of my followers are avid watchers of both shows. If you are a curious cat and want to know if Kakashi does have a son or not (or maybe just speculate that he does) come check out YumDeku’s post down below:


My boy Lynn knows what’s up when it comes to Isabella from The Promised Neverland. Ya know…the one character in the show we all love to hate and hate to love. Yeah…I did a whole blog post dedicated to those type of characters awhile back but this isn’t about me! This is about Lynn’s crazy awesome post in defense of Isabella and her ways. Make sure to take a peep at it when you get the chance:


The AniWriter is at it again my pandas! He’s bringing us the quality content we never knew we needed. If you are a fan of March Comes in Like a Lion or haven’t started the series just yet (but are going to) then this is the post for you. The AniWriter begins with season one episode one of MCILAL and will (possibly) continue from there. He is hoping to do this series at least once a week. Check out the post to get yourself started:


Crimson is right! It’s perfectly acceptable to take a break sometimes. As I stated in one of my previous post your mental health and well being are IMPORTANT. Everyone needs to take care of themselves and your overall mentality should come before anything else. I am so so glad Crimson created this post! Definitely read this one ASAP:


Animated Andy created a post that hit close to home for me. Anime has always been an integral part of my life and has helped me in so many ways. I have grown up on anime/manga and I hope to continue with it for the rest of my life. I am pretty sure Andy feels the same way, as do most of you who follow my blog. Now you can all read how anime has not only helped, but also healed Andy’s soul:


Wait…Alexie the Great actually wrote a blog post?! You don’t say! Alexie, a lot like myself, has taken a step back from blogging. Both of us have been struggling to push content out, but we haven’t lost hope! We are both trying our best and Alexie has created a great post on the disparity of what he watches and what he reads. You can catch that post here:


Last, but certainly not least, is Ty-chama! Ty wrote a fun post on why gamer guys are so darn attractive. I mean…this post could also be applied to anime guys as well. Hence why Ty mentioned the anime and gamer overlap in her first sentence. If you want to read Ty’s work just click on the link down below:


That is going to do it for me this lovely Sunday! I hope everyone enjoyed reading today’s post and that you found some new content creators to like and follow! I will see you guys back here on Tuesday for the next edition of Top Ten Tuesday. Remember to always stay kawaii and cuddly my pandas. MUAH! XOXO

Disclaimer: All imagery and photos come from searching for them on the internet. I have no claim or right to them. If I find any links I will always post them (this usually entails fan art or any other work affiliated with an artist).

I mean…don’t we all wanna do bad things for fun? I know I did my fair share of bad things when I was younger. As Aly & AJ’s new song “Church” (which everyone should stop and go listen to RIGHT MEOW) implies “I do bad things for the sake of good times.” If that isn’t every teenagers mantra growing up then I don’t know what else is! Sometimes you just gotta break the rules and have some fun now and again…but don’t do anything illegal my pandas! Nope. This is not that type of site. We are here to promote good, whole-sum fun 😀

And in the spirit of whole-sum fun…today’s Top Ten Tuesday is all about anime girl’s who like to stir the pot, have some fun, while maybe also killing some people along the way in order to do so. YUP! GOOD WHOLE-SUM F.U.N!

Ahhh…good ol’ Spongebob coming through in the clutch. Also the FUN song is catchy af and gets stuck in my head all the time. Anyone else have this problem? Just me? Okay. Let’s stop with the chitchat and get to some ladies! Cause I know y’all didn’t come here for me to talk about Spongebob or how F is for friends who do stuff together. U is for You and Me. N is for anywhere and anytime at all down here in the deep blue sea! You can thank me later 😉

1. Akane from SSSS.Gridman

^I really didn’t connect with Akane until later in the season. After SSSS.Gridman was over I was like, “Akane is THAT BITCH.” Now I adore her ❤

2. Magane from Re:Creators

^Is this really a surprise to anyone anymore? Y’all know how much I love Magane…but she really does have the perfect personality for this list.

3. Banba from Riddle Story of Devil

^Banba is always looking for a good time.

4. Shiro from Deadman Wonderland

^Does Shiro get to have twice the fun since she has twice the personalities? 🤔

5. Kirari from Kakegurui

^We love a hands on Prez who has an obsession with gambling & maaaybe Yumeko XD

6. Aligura from Blood Blockade Battlefront

^Can’t forget about Aligura and her off-the-wall personality!

7. Krul from Seraph of the End

^Cute and sassy and would have no problem kicking my ass if it came down to it.

8. Eto from Tokyo Ghoul

^Mother Monster.

9. Nona from Death Parade

^Nona needs more love. So does Death Parade as a series in general!

10. Jessie from Pokemon

^One of the OG bad girls.

That is going to do it for me today my pandas! Thank you for joining me once again this lovely Tuesday afternoon (well…it’s still afternoon where I live). I hope you guys enjoyed today’s list cause I sure as hell did! What other Top Ten Tuesday list would you like to see me create? I am always open to new ideas from all of you. If you have any good ideas drop them down in the comments section below! Remember to always stay kawaii and cuddly my pandas. MUAH! XOXO

Disclaimer: All imagery and photos come from searching for them on the internet. I have no claim or right to them. If I find any links I will always post them (this usually entails fan art or any other work affiliated with an artist).

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. Like I said…now that I have some time up coming off I am going to try and create some content for you all. Thank you guys for your continued love and support. 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

You know…now that I think about it I haven’t shown any love or appreciation for the youngsters in anime on my blog. WHAT THE HECK HAVE I’VE BEEN DOING?! There are so many great kids in anime and they deserve love too! I was thinking about Tsumugi from Sweetness and Lightning yesterday and I realized that I haven’t done a dedicated Top Ten Tuesday to kids. So here we are folks! A whole TTT dedicated to all the sweet girls in anime (yeeesss….I’ll do a boys post next week). Since April doesn’t have any special themes that I can really work off of I figured a kids post would work in light of Easter being this month.

I mean…who doesn’t get all sentimental and mushy gushy when a cute little girl character comes on screen? Some of these characters make me smile from ear to ear 😀 It’s nice to be taken back to my childhood from time to time. You can even say some of these girls remind me of my niece who will be turning 7 in June! Aaaahhhh! WHERE HAS THE TIME GONE?! I remember when she was an itty-bitty baby and I could snuggle her and carry her around with ease. Now she is half of my height already! That’s not saying much since I am only a measly 5 feet 4 inches…booooo XD I definitely got the short end of the stick in the height department.

But enough about my short dog complex…we are here for the cuties. Let’s get this party started!

1. Momo from March Comes in Like a Lion

^I can’t handle all the cuteness that is Momo-chan!!! ❤

2. Naru from Barakamon

^Naru makes this series THAT much better lololz

3. Ushio from Clannad: After Story


4. Sana from Alice & Zouroku

^I love me some bratty girls in anime. Mostly because they remind me of myself 😉

5. Hagu from Honey & Clover

^I know…I know…Hagu is a bit older but she is just too damn cute! There’s no way I wasn’t going to put her on today’s list.

6. Chibiusa from Sailor Moon

^Wait…is this technically cheating?

7. Kana from Miss Kobayashi’s Dragon Maid

^We must protect!

8. Tsumugi from Sweetness & Lightning

^Tsumugi is me on a daily basis.

9. Yui from Sword Art Online

^I want an adorable little fairy helper that I can keep in my pocket all the time.

10. Riko from Made in Abyss

^Riko always has that curious glimmer in her eye.

Today was a sweetness overload! I can’t handle how much I love all of these characters. Who is your favorite little lady in anime? Did she or more than one make today’s list? If you guys have any suggestions for my boys list next week drop them in the comments section below! That is going to do it for me today. I will see you guys in my next post. Stay classy my pandas! XOXO
