What should we call you?
I'm Tea! koala also works. i'll respond to most things, probably, to be honest? I'm a shipping olympics veteran, so it's v possible you've seen me around.

What got you into sports anime?
i go to sports anime when i need something light and fun. one can only deal with too many Deepe Philosophical™ shows before they go nuts, so i use sports anime like a breather.
What do you love about your favorite sports anime?
oh god. well that'd be oofuri by about a mile, and i just love all the in-depth, multifaceted characters and relationships, the fact that they all have parents that play an active role, and the themes of communication and dealing with anxiety. It just resonates with me a lot.

Which sports anime moment got you right in the feels?
oof. definitely oof. hq!! is fun, but not super emotional for me, and same goes for Free!, despite how much I enjoy the shows.

Have you found a relatable favorite in a sports anime? Who?
predictably, Abe and Mihashi. from oofuri. Mihashi has like the most relatable anxiety i've ever seen in my life, and Abe has a stubborn thick-headedness but also deep loyalty and compassion, and i love the progression their relationship goes through. Also, even when Abe thinks Mihashi is just an obstacle he has to deal with and can barely understand a word he says, he still listens closely to him, pays attention, and makes a huge effort to understand. that's the part that got me, i think...

What series do you find it difficult/easy to make content for? Why?
any series where i know the characters well i find it p easy to make content for, and difficult when I'm not familiar. or when they have super complicated designs (lookin at u, fire emblem). sports anime tends to make that aspect very, very easy :'D and ofc i'm way more drawn to create content for characters I relate to, because exploring their dynamic and mindset is easier and more interesting. which is not to say i don't love creating content for characters i don't relate to at all, but it doesn't come as easy.

Similarly, what series do you like to consume content from? Why?
p much anything i'm into. for sports that's oof and haikyuu and a little free! sometimes, i've read or seen a couple others but i don't know them as well. lately for non-sports it's been fire emblem, bnha, atla, and dragon age/mass effect. plus a lot more, but those are the ones i can name off the top of my head. i love reading different takes on my faves, and of course art is always nice to look at. i love seeing different interpretations and styles and whatnot.

Lastly, let your fellow SASOers know where they can find you if they want to chat with you
i have the same username everywhere but here (curse you, paid-only rename tokens...) i keep a masterlist on dw, i'm p active on tumblr and twitter, and i'm also on discord. feel free to add/message me at any time!
