What do you feel is your best quality? Why?: I'm a very calm and patient person, and generally very understanding. As such, people usually feel very relaxed and "open" around me. I'm also very protective of and loyal to the few people that I am close to.
Your worst? Why?: Because I'm a very quiet person by nature, I can sometimes come across as being aloof. I can also have a terribly low self-esteem at times, although I try to not let others pick up on it.
What's your favorite quote? Why?: "The most beautiful thing we can experience is that which is mysterious." (Albert Einstein)
If you could change one thing about yourself, what would it be? Why?: I don't think I would change anything.
If you could change one thing about the world, what would it be? Why?: If I could change anything about the world... hm. I would make people more understanding and tolerant of each other.
Why do you like the anime/manga Hikaru no Go?: Mainly for the characters and the way they interact, I think.
Who is your favourite character? Why? (You won't be judged on this): Hikaru... and I'm not entirely sure why. I just find his personality appealing, I guess. I also think it's interesting to see how much he changes as the series progresses - from a person who has no direction and doesn't seem to take anything seriously, to someone who is focused and ambitious.
Who is your least favourite character? Why?: Ochi, probably. There are few things I dislike more in a person (or character) than arrogance. And in general, I just find him annoying.
What's your favourite pairing? Why?: Hikaru/Akira. I tend to like m/m pairings, so I'll admit, that's probably part of it. But I find this pairing interesting because there is such an intensity and passion that exists between them. In a way, their lives kind of revolve around each other, and they're so constantly focused on each other and Go that it is hard for me to imagine either of them having time or energy to spare for anyone else.
What's your least favourite pairing? Why?: I don't really have one? I guess I don't particularly like Hikaru/Akari, but I also don't dislike it. *shrug*
If you got to choose a character in the show to be for 24 hours, who would it be? Why?: Hm... probably Izumi. Hikaru would probably be the most fun to be, but we have such different energy levels that I think it would be exhausting for me to be him. ^^; Akira is uptight and he doesn't interact very much with the other characters, so I wouldn't want to be him. Izumi seems pretty easygoing and calm, for the most part, and he interacts pretty regularly with Hikaru and Waya, so I think I would enjoy being him the most.
