Ready 2 Die @ the Inhigh
1. What should we call you?
Hi, my name is Mels. He/him or she/her pronouns are both fine.
2. What got you into sports anime?
Oh lord, okay so once upon a time in 2015… Actually, we gotta go back to 2013 when I participated in HSWC, which was an event exactly like SASO but for The Fandom That Shall Not Be Named. Anywho, I rode and died in that event for two years, but there wasn’t going to be a 2015 version of it, but there were plans to have a sports anime version of it. I hadn’t watched any sports anime, but I got scouted onto a team anyway, mostly for my spreadsheet abilities, with no expectation for me to participate with making content. But that’s not in my nature, so I watched Yowamushi Pedal to figure out what I was getting into and I promptly got hooked. Then I consumed as much sports anime content as I could before Bonus Round 1 so I could actually do fills, and then everything kinda snowballed. So here I am
3. What do you love about your favorite sports anime?
You know, it’s really hard for me to really put a finger on why Prince of Tennis has its claws in me so hard, but… In addition to the fact that it has my fav character, I think a lot of it has to do with the team as a family feel, and the close bonds across everyone on the main team.
4. Which sports anime moment got you right in the feels?
Every single time my OTP stands next to each other.
Honestly though, Inui asking Kaidou to be his doubles partner like this makes me wail every time.
5. Have you found a relatable favorite in a sports anime? Who?
If you don’t know already, Inui Sadaharu from Prince of Tennis is my everything.
6. What series do you find it difficult/easy to make content for? Why?
Hold on, lemme pull up my spreadsheet of all the qualifying anime I’ve watched to make sure I don’t forget anything…
So my main SASO fandoms are Prince of Tennis and Yowamushi Pedal, and those are generally the easiest for me to pick up prompts for because I’ve had a lot of practice. I can do Daiya no Ace fic, but I’m a bit pickier about what characters I can write in that one. I’ve done Haikyuu in the past, but I’m a bit rusty and I’m not current with the series, unfortunately. I’ve also watched Yuri on Ice, Angelic Layer, Princess Nine, Oofuri, Hikaru no Go, Love Live, Slam Dunk, and Saki (some to completion, but not all of them) so I might dabble in these fandoms, some with higher difficulty than others depending on my familiarity.
7. Similarly, what series do you like to consume content from? Why?
Prince of Tennis is where I will inhale content, because I love repping for tennis and sharing good content that I find. For the other fandoms listed above, I will generally just read based on what friends produce or what gets rec’d to me (mostly just because I don’t have as much time to consume content as I’d like, so I generally don’t unless it’s shoved in my face orz).
8. Lastly, let your fellow SASOers know where they can find you if they want to chat with you!
You can talk to me most easily on twitter
. I also have an Ao3 (
) that is woefully not up-to-date. But I also keep
of my saso content here on my Dreamwidth (
), and I will also answer PMs over here too!
