Why am I your favourite?

Because strawberries, swords, justice, roses, and all-around awesomeness. 8) 8) 8)

Seriously though, you're my best friend, we have a lot of common interests, and you've helped me through some really rough times in my life.  Perhaps that's why. <3

Quote
Should I change The Satori Maiden's Christmas Wish's status in the PSL catalog to "neglected FOREVER"?

:<



It's right here, open at all times. I haven't forgotten .______.

If I am not mistaking, you had that one girl in your avatar + signature with the large glasses. Who is she and why do you do that.

That was Matsuri Sakuragi, my favorite character and namesake, from Ichigo Mashimaro.

Because strawberries.


Where'd you get the name "Matsuri" from?

See above!


What is your favorite pastime?

A year ago, I would have said watching anime and reading manga. Two years ago all the way to when I was just a little kid, I'd say video games.

That said, I haven't been doing anywhere near as much of either in the past year or so in comparison to how much I used to. I just like hanging around online with my friends-- though I have really been getting into photography, as well. I'd have to say that'd be my favorite indoor and outdoor pastimes, respectively.

Quote
What is your greatest achievement in life, what your greatest failure?

I'd have to say my greatest failure was allowing myself to become a timid, introverted, self-loathing mess through the nightmare that was high school.

On the other hand, I'd say getting out of all that was a pretty great achievement-- though I absolutely cannot say I did it alone-- I had a lot of help, and I'll always be grateful for it. <3

Quote
Why is it I always have the urge to refer to you as a "she" when I know that this is inaccurate?

Probably because I had the top femininity score and lowest masculinity score on the BSRI a year or so ago. That said, I dunno why you have that urge-- it's not like I hide my actual gender. :P

When is the festival?

When is it ever not festival time? You lost me. o_o

Quote
Night or day?

I don't really have a preference! Nighttime is quiet, peaceful, and calming, and daytime is time for doing things. :3

Quote
If you could change one thing in the world, what would it be?

Oh god. Hmmm.

If I could do away with prejudice and avarice and just have people just generally care about those less fortunate than them, it'd be pretty great.

I know it's not the most inspired or interesting answer, but to be honest, it's not something I've put much thought into. I'll have to think a lot more about that.

Was this intentional?

I actually didn't notice until you mentioned it Of course it was!

Yes.

Seriously. 8)

Quote
How did you arrive at MotK in the first place?

The same way I discovered Touhou, actually. My first online friend, who I have known for years, introduced me to them. :3


Who said we're wack?

You did, clearly. :P

MATSY

Why is Rainbow Resort about as good as it gets?

Because Rainbow Resort bros. 8)

* Matsurnia Teppelin brofist.

Quote
Why are you accepted as legal tender?

I still don't know where this is all coming from. Ferrets are not currency.

* Matsurnia Teppelin looks at Kerigis.

Or food.

:<

What would you consider to one of the more memorable moments on MotK, Thread / Event wise? Why did you like it so much?

The Special Anniversary Board! I personally found it to be a blast to be a part of its execution. :3

Quote
If you could bring something in (or back if it existed before) to MotK, what would it be and why?

Mmm, pretty much everything currently mentioned here, I suppose.

Quote
Do you love doing things for us lovely people?

I always did have fun surprising folks with name changes, avatar switchings, fake bans, and so on. Haven't done as much of that as I used to, though. :<

Quote
If all Admins, Mods and other users of a high title were to engage in a contest to end all contests, who would win and why?

Quote
Also, would you let us 'idiots' decide what the contest involves?  :derp:

You 'idiots' should come up with more contests amongst yourselves first! :derp:

As for who would win, it'd all depend on what the contest was, I suppose. =O

Why are you drawn to Ellen, in all seriousness?

Originally, it was because I really loved her theme. However, after reading more into her, she became one of my favorite characters-- if not entirely because of her memory loss issues. I myself have a really lousy memory, and it frustrates me a lot-- so... eh, I dunno. Something like that.

Also, because fuwafuwa.

Quote
What is more important to you in a game: Scorin' or Goalin'?

While I was notorious a year or so ago for being all AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA MUST PLAY FOR SCORE AT ALL COSTS, THE 1CC WILL COME LATER-- I eventually realized that I was getting more frustrated at playing games when I was forcing myself to play them for score. So at this point, I'd say they're both equally important to me, I suppose?

who the fuck are you



Who the hell do you think I am?!

What is your favorite way to eat strawberries?

With more strawberries. :3

Quote
What led you to pick the Psychic type as your favorite type of Pokemon?

Well, I like Grass and Steel types just as much! It's a three-way tie.

That said, it's probably because the Psychic type was so hilariously overpowered in the first generation. :P

Quote
What is your fondest childhood memory?

Probably when the whole Pok?mon craze started, and all of a sudden, it became a common interest among people who wouldn't normally associate with each other. It was sort of a fun way to make new friends. :3

Hi Matsuri! o/

Your taste in anime is somewhat-similar to mine! Which do you prefer: Action/Adventure or Slice-of-Life/Comedy?

To be honest, the only slice-of-life I can still say I'm really fond of is Ichigo Mashimaro. Barasui just has a unique sense of humor that you don't really see anywhere else, and none of the other slice-of-life shows compare in my eyes.

I'd have to say Action/Adventure, of the two options.


Your favorite Pok?mon?

Mm, it's a split between Lilligant, Jirachi, Celebi, and Togekiss, I guess. I don't have a definite, absolute above-all favorite.

What are the existential ramifications of OBJECT?

OBJECT is simply a concept of STUFF.

Which is a concept of THING.

Which is simply a part of IT.

Which is only a tiny piece of THAT.

It never ends, my friend.

List of electronics you have. Everything.

More than I'd like to bother to count. I do use my laptop and camera the most out of all of them, however. >_o

STRAWBERRY DRILLS OR STRAWBERRY SWORDS
QUICK, YOUR MASCOT NOBU'S LIFE DEPENDS ON THE ANSWER

As manly and awesome as drills are, the answer will always be swords.

So, :sword!:

music

I don't really have an absolute favorite genre/style of music, to be honest. I tend to jump around from video game soundtracks to anime OPs/EDs/OSTs to other random whatnots.

At the moment, I'm quite fond of music from the Mother/Earthbound series (since I have played through Mother 1 and will soon finish Mother 3 within about a week of each other), but I've also been listening to stuff by School Food Punishment, marble, Shoji Meguro, Rise Against, Yuki Kajiura, and Kalafina recently.


What are your opinions on the girls in Xenophilia? B)

I'm very intrigued by Hiroko's character development, and look forward to seeing what you're going to do with her in the future.

As for Sakuri... damn.  ;_______;


Are you into sports? If so, what sport do you like the most?

More fun to play, less fun to watch. That said, I don't really watch or play sports, nor would I be particularly good at them. I probably wouldn't say no to watching them or playing them if someone else wanted me to do so with them, though. I'm indifferent, I suppose.


Where would you like to live if you could escape the dread clutches of Indiana?

I've never been west of Chicago, I admit. I'd love to head that way and see what I could find. :3

Alright pal let's do this thing.

Gorbachev vs  Trotsky, no holds barred ladder match. Who wins and who loses?

I am ashamed to say that I know little more of Russian history beyond what is mentioned in this video.

That said, Gorbachev-- simply because I was Matshail Gorbachev back when we did the commie hijack. :x

Quote
What's the deal with Indiana?

I think the sheer boredom of this place drives people into insanity-- or submission, to the point where they don't even make the effort to leave. When people say they like it here, my only response is '...why?'

Aside from that, we have corn, conservatives, construction, corn, churches, and corn. :<

Quote
Why come no Ellen manga?

Because I keep forgetting to ask how I'm supposed to properly scan it so it can be scanlated/translated/whatever. I suck. :fail:

Quote
Why I am your favorite?

Because I'm your favorite. Search your heart, for you know it's true. :smug:

Quote
Why do all these punks keep biting my style?

They just hate you 'cause they ain't you.

Quote
What's your approach to moderating a problem?

Depends on the problem. I'm online around the clock (though this is somewhat of an illusion thanks to the 15-minute login timeout, as far as time online goes, as I'm often juggling tasks, and am often just refreshing every so often to keep track of stuff, such as mod reports and threads I've been paying attention to), so I'm usually around to respond to things as quickly as possible. That said, if it's a simple offense or issue, I just fix it up as I see it. For more complex issues and problems, I tend to wait for other staffers' input before deciding what I think of it. I dislike jumping to conclusions (and I admit it's something I have a tendency to do), so I do try to wait until I at least think I can see all sides of an issue before deciding where I stand.


Quote
Have you ever fought a ferret?

When I was a little kid. Little bastard bit me. >_>

Still love 'em, though :3

Quote
Stargate?

Haven't watched it, I'm afraid.

Quote
Recommend three anime I need to watch.

Hmm.

I have no idea if you've seen them or not, but Revolutionary Girl Utena, Kaiba, and Kuuchuu Buranko/Trapeze come to mind. I'd be interested in hearing your thoughts on 'em.

Stance on vegetarianism.

I'd be a vegetarian myself if it wasn't for poultry and seafood, I suppose. Not really into any other kinds of meat.

* Matsurnia Teppelin shrugs.

It's all cool with me. :3

Quote

Zettai Unmei Mokushiroku.

Quote
Draw?

'fraid not. I tend to have more fun taking pictures of things instead of drawing them myself. I'm not much of an artist. :x

Quote

It's not the number of people, it is the size of the area they are in. :P

Quote
Destroy one historical monument without ramifications, provide reasoning.

I can't think of one I'd actually want to destroy. :<

Quote
Favorite mythology.

I recall being quite fond of Greek mythology a while ago, but I have found myself more interested in the youkai, gods, and so on of Japanese folklore as well. Haven't read too much into it yet though, I'm afraid.

Quote

Not really crazy about actors and actresses and so on, I'll admit. I'm not sure. :x

A life without fruit is no good life, sir. :<
