3 Days 3 Quotes Tag (Day 3)

Well, here we are. It’s the third and final day of the 3 Days 3 Quotes tag, so thanks again to Yomu for nominating me. I enjoyed searching through quotes and trying to find ones that spoke to me.

If you missed the earlier quotes, don’t worry. Here are the links to Day 1 and Day 2.

So, this should be interesting as I like the quote and the meaning, although I think it has a small flaw, but I’ll get to that in a minute.

“Even a pawn can take down a King.”

That was the lovely Rias Gremory from High School DxD giving Issei some encouragement. Now, I love the sentiment of the statement. It gives hope to the lowest ranked piece in a game of chess that they can defeat the highest ranked piece. Who doesn’t want to think that they can achieve greatness from such a humble position.

So, that’s great, but if you know anything about chess, you’ll know that the pawn cannot take down the king alone. I don’t think there is any position that it could do it alone.

Who knows, maybe Rias was saying that you also need to rely on the team and their individual strengths. Maybe, I’m just reading too much into it. Anyhow, it’s a cool quote and that’s all that matters.

Stop overthinking it and just be cool.

Nomination

So, this is my final nomination for the tag and I choose… Alexie the Great at Alex’s Arena. Again, no pressure to keep it going, but it would be great if it did. There are far too many awesome quotes to stop now.

And that’s that. I hope you enjoyed my selection of quotes, basically, never give up, remain positive, and don’t be afraid to take on the mightiest of opponents. Thanks for reading.

3 Days 3 Quotes Tag (Day 2)

This is day two of 3 Days 3 Quotes. I can’t believe it’s almost over already… Ha! That’s a little glass half-empty humour, something that wouldn’t sit too well with the owner of today’s quote.

If you missed Day 1, don’t worry. You can find it here.

All right, let’s get on with Day 2.

“Whatever you do, enjoy it to the fullest. That is the secret of life.”

If you’ve seen Fate/Zero then you’ll be familiar with Rider laughing and drinking and just generally doing whatever he wants. He reminds me of the vikings in The Thirteenth Warrior who basically did the same thing for the entire movie.

So, this is another great quote in my mind. Sure, there are times when we’re doing crappy things that don’t really fulfil us, but if we could just enjoy ourselves a little more wouldn’t that be considerably more bearable.

All of the most enjoyable jobs I’ve had were more about the people I worked with and less about the work being done. It just goes to show that if you are enjoying yourself, even the most mundane tasks can fly by. Basically, it doesn’t hurt to have a positive attitude.

Seriously, which one of these two looks to be having more fun? I’ll give you a clue, it’s not the grumpy looking one in the bottom left corner.

Nomination

With my second nomination, I choose… animeandfanfiction. Again, no pressure. Feel free to ignore if it’s not something you want to do.

The next quote is coming tomorrow, same place, same time. See you then!

3 Days 3 Quotes Tag (Day 1)

Recently, I was tagged by Yomu in the 3 Days 3 Quotes Tag. This is day one, so expect another inspiring quote tomorrow and then one the day after. After that, you’re on your own!

Here are the links to Yomu’s quotes: Day 1, Day 2, and Day 3. I’ve got to say, I’m a big fan of Day 3’s quote and can relate to that.

As with all tag posts, there are rules.

  1. Thank the person who nominated you.
  2. Post three quotes on three consecutive days.
  3. Nominate three bloggers to do the same.

Sounds easy enough. So, thanks Yomu for the nomination and recognizing that I would love the chance to write up three more posts. Now, let’s get on with the first quote.

“There is nothing crueller than letting a dream end midway.”

Shouta Aizawa said this in My Hero Academia. He comes across as a hardened and pessimistic teacher, however, he’s proven time and again that he’ll inspire and defend his students no matter what they’re up against.

I think that this is such a great quote as it works on two levels. Firstly, it’s saying that you shouldn’t give up on your dream. Don’t let it end before you’ve accomplished what you set out to do. Secondly, it can mean that you shouldn’t trample on other’s dreams. If anything you should encourage and inspire them to keep fighting.

This series has so many inspiring moments that I could have probably picked all three of my quotes from it, but don’t worry, I didn’t.

Nomination

So, I’m going to do things the same way Yomu did by nominating one blogger a day. Let’s keep the inspiring anime quotes coming. Alternatively, if you have a dark anime quote, I’m all for that too.

With my first nomination, I choose… Amelia at A Girl & Her Anime as another thank you for the Real Neat Award nomination. There is no pressure.

The next quote is coming tomorrow, same place, same time. See you then!

Cat Planet Cuties (Season One)

Waking up to find a cute cat-girl in your bed would probably be a bit of a shock. Imagine discovering the ears and tail are real and you’re now the point of contact for a planet full of cat-girls!

What did you watch and why? This is my selection for the letter C in my A to Z Anime Challenge. After watch Blood-C and then Goblin Slayer!, it was time for a bit of mindless fun and Cat Planet Cuties appears to have an abundance of it.

What’s it about? Kio arrived at the funeral with the booze his uncle asked him to sneak in. As a reward, his uncle lets him have some and introduces him to a cute girl. That’s where it all gets fuzzy.

Blood-C: The Last Dark

Desperate to track down Fumito and make him pay for what he put her through, Saya heads to Tokyo and hooks up with a group of hackers. This time she’s after blood!

What did you watch and why? When I selected Blood-C as part of my A to Z Anime Challenge I was aware of the movie and had planned to watch it anyhow, even before I realised it followed on from the series. If anything it’s kind of a feature-length final episode.

What’s it about? It’s been six months since the conclusion of Blood-C and Saya is healed and thirsty for revenge. She heads to Tokyo in search of Fumito and his sinister organisation. It doesn’t take long before Saya encounters an Elder Bairn on the subway. It grabs a girl and flees. She gives chance ultimately killing the Elder Bairn and saving the girl.
