Authors Answer 38 – Summer Reading

In this case I would have liked for the answer to be out of date by the time it was up, but no such luck.

I Read Encyclopedias for Fun

Summer, time for the beach, time for summer sports, time to go basking in the sun. Or maybe you’d prefer to read in the shade or in an air-conditioned home. Well, I like doing all these things, but this is about reading. Let’s find out what everyone’s doing this summer.

beachQuestion 38: It’s summer, so what’s on your summer reading list?

Tracey Lynn Tobin

Ha ha ha…what’s on my summer reading list? That’s a good one. I don’t have a “summer” reading list because my capability to commit to a reading list is pretty much non-existent. For one thing, I never seem to be able to find the time to read these days (and yes, I know how horrible that sounds). For another thing, whenever I try to commit to reading something new I end up getting the urge to read an old favorite, and that favorite almost always wins…

30 Day Video Game Challenge

I’ve decided to make my own video game challenge, based on the 30 Day Anime Challenge. I’ve changed some of the questions around to make it more appropriate but still kept some story-related ones because some games are pretty good in that regard. Anyone who want to do the same is welcome to.

I’ll be starting on Monday (December 22), and it won’t be quite 30 consecutive days because at the very least I’ll be skipping the 24th and 25th.

Top 21 craziest anime/game hair: 5-1

This is the final 5 of my list of 21 of the weirdest, most unrealistic, or just plain crazy examples of hairstyles in anime, manga, and video games.

Part 1, Part 2, and Part 3.

monkey with human hair

#5. Dixie Kong

I wanted to keep this to human-like characters, but in Dixie Kong’s case the fact that she’s a monkey with human-like hair that looks nothing like her fur is part of the weirdness.

But there’s also the fact that she can, depending on the game, either hover or double jump by twirling it. In Donkey Kong Country 2, this also somehow lets Diddy Kong stay in the air longer when he’s following her, even though they’re not touching.

Top 21 craziest anime/game hair: 10-6

This is part 3 of my list of 21 of the weirdest, most unrealistic, or just plain crazy examples of hairstyles in anime, manga, and video games.

Part 1 and Part 2.

 

big hair, no goggles

#10. Taichi “Tai” Kamiya/Yagami

The main character of the first season of Digimon, here he is in the second season, after passing his goggles on to Davis/Daisuke.

Okay, I might be placing him a little too high, but you’ve got to admit having more volume in his hair than in the rest of his head is very distinctive. Losing the goggles only made his hair even bigger.

Top 21 craziest anime/game hair: 21-16

Hair in anime and video games can be any color of the visible spectrum and defy the laws of physics.

This is my list of 21 of the weirdest, most unrealistic, or just plain crazy examples of hairstyles in anime, manga, and video games.

(It was going to be top 20 but then I remembered an obvious one and didn’t want to take anyone off the list.)

a fiery redhead with hotblooded sideburns

#21. Cutie Honey

Though her original incarnation technically wasn’t a magical girl, this android is close enough to be considered the prototype of the “magical girl warrior” subgenre that includes Sailor Moon and Pretty Cure.

And she’s on the list because she’s a girl with the same kind of sideburns as every other Go Nagai protagonist.
