Ok, my first thought here is ‘do I include potential semes from OTPs and whatnot? Oo’, in which case I’ll end up relisting a good number of characters from my list of favourite male anime characters xD. So in order to avoid that (and because I prefer to go with actual pairs) I’m gonna stick to characters from yaoi stories and all that jazz :D.
Potentially confusing drama aside, here comes another list (in no particular order) :D:D.
Clear (クリア) from DRAMAtical Murder
I’ve not seen the anime adaptation of DMMd yet (yes, feel free to shoot me), so the following is based solely on what I know from the VN. Clear’s just so goofy and considerate and adorable that you can’t not love him! 🙂 And while in some cases I just wanna smack certain characters during their bad endings, I really can’t say that was the case with him. If anything, the bad endings (the original and the continuation from re:connect) kind of made me appreciate him even more. So either I’m a twisted little puppy or this character’s just really well written and just generally awesome xD.
David Krause from In these words
I’ve mentioned before that I generally don’t really like the ‘older guy’ type but every rule has to have an exception and by god, I’m pretty sure David’s my exception xD. I haven’t read all the stories he’s in yet, however the manga I did read left me wanting more :D:D. David’s badass and straightforward, but also spontaneous and gentle and kind at the same time and he’s got one hell of a sense of humour. In a nutshell – he’s one of those awesomely awesome characters, imho ^^.
Shinohara Kenji ( 篠原憲司) from In these words
My first encounter with this character was through his back story (i.e., Maybe Someday) that’s part of the prequel series to In these words and I must admit I pretty much immediately took a liking to Shinohara. Once I got my hands on the first 2 volumes of ITW proper and found out more about him and who’s who and what’s what all I could do was love him more, twisted and dorky as he can be sometimes xD.
So I’m pretty sure that’s it for this post. As always, thanks for stopping by! 🙂
