Why blue specifically? I've seen a lot of people sketch with blue or other non-black colors, and it's something that I've been curious about for a while.
Because you can line easier over blue and blue isn’t visible in traditional printing even if you can’t erase everything.

Although I personally prefer to lower the density so that I can have stronger lines at parts where they overlap.

I guess anime style = cel shading. From my experience, the tools you need to get familiar the most are bucket tool, lasso selection, wand tool, transform tool, brush tool, blender, airbrush, sketch pen and ink pen.
I can't find sketch pen and ink pen in krita. Any good alternative? I've tried normal paintbrush but the stroke size is hard to control...

So that you don't constantly trying to fix your drawing mistake when you still not done drawing the whole thing first, so that after you done the whole thing, you will be able to correct it better since now you can see the whole thing.
Basically, you need to finish what you draw first, before trying to fix any mistake that you make.

I don’t use krita, but my friend who does told me it’s more suited for a painterly style. You’ll have to make yourself an ink pen for outlining and a sketch pen.
