Day 28 – Favourite quote from any anime character

I’m pretty sure I might just remember a bunch of other quotes as soon as I finish writing this and go all ‘fuuuuuuudge, I should’ve mentioned this and/or that as well’. In the meantime though, I’ll go with the first quote that came to mind (and that stuck with me ever since I first heard it):

“A long time ago, Nunally, Suzaku, and I talked about something. We wondered what happiness would look like if we could give it a physical form. If I’m not mistaken, I think it was Suzaku that said that the shape of happiness might resemble glass. His reasoning made sense. He said that even though you don’t usually notice it, it’s still definitely there. You merely have to change your point of view slightly, And then that glass will sparkle when it reflects the light. I doubt that anything else could argue its own existence more eloquently.”
Lelouch Vi Britannia

As always, thanks for stopping by! 🙂

Day 24 – Moment that shocked you the most in any anime

WARNING! Spoilers for Code Geass ahead, so read at your own discretion! :D:D

Now I might’ve been too naive and lost and confused or whatever, but I just can’t forget how I felt when I found out Lelouch Lamperouge’s actual plan and final goal, during the last half of the last episode of Code Geass: Hangyaku no Lelouch R2 (コードギアス 反逆のルルーシュR2). I semi-spoiled myself without wanting to even before finishing the series and went all ‘oh well, Lulu dying is probably the best way to go with things, considering all he’s done’, etc, etc, etc.

But then I get to the final episode and find out everything that was actually going on and what Lulu had in mind all this time and…. I have to admit I started crying just as much as Nunnally. Call me impressionable, but I just couldn’t help but be in awe of the sacrifice (and selflessness, I guess) that Lelouch was willing to make in order to make his wish come true. And the way everything was put together (scenes, music, the voice-acting) just made the whole revelation all the more amazing.

So yeah, there you have it. As always, thanks for stopping by! 🙂

Day 3 – Favourite male anime character ever

Eeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeerm… So yeah, here comes another list :D. Fyi, they’re in no particular order.

Nagisa Kaworu (from Neon Genesis Evangelion)

Now for the life of me I can’t say what made me like Kaworu in the first place, but I do know that ever since I saw the Evangelion series (and the rebuild) he’s stuck with me and I’ve loved him ever since. For some reason, Kaworu’s a joy to watch whenever he’s on screen. Enough said :D:D.

Yuuki Natsuno (from Shiki)

Natsuno

Again, he’s one of those characters I liked from the start, no questions asked. Although if I had to mention a few reasons which make me love him more, here goes – he’s smart, able to keep his calm in one hell of a fudged up situation, he’s a great friend to have and he’s capable of sacrificing even himself if the situation demands it.

Ashitaka (from Mononoke Hime)

He’s bound to be among my favourites what with my love for the movie :D. But besides that, what I really admire about him is his calm nature – (spoiler alert!!) when he finds out that he’s cursed, he’ll most likely die as a result of it and he has to leave his village forever, Ashitaka merely accepts these facts and does what he needs to do (end of spoiler alert ^^”). He’s also strong, determined and a very kind person. The more I try to write about him the worse I manage to express myself so I’ll just leave it at that. I guess part of what I’m trying to say is that, imho, Ashitaka’s one of the most noble characters out there.

Clear (from DRAMAtical Murder)

True, I’m thinking more about the way the character’s presented in the VN, mostly because I haven’t seen the anime yet, but Clear’s a character, now he’s also in an anime and he’s beyond lovely :D:D.

Besides the fact that he’s adorably goofy and very kind and friendly, there’s just something about Clear that makes me like him even when taking into consideration his bad endings. Either that, or I’m into messed up stuff. But hey, aren’t we all? ^^

Lelouch Lamperouge (from Code Geass)

Lelouch-Lamperouge-Zero-lelouch-lamperouge-zero-15571960-600-450

Ok, Lelouch is smart, organised a great strategist and as much of a twisted bastard as he can be sometimes (and despite some of the flaws of Code Geass as a series), the selflessness that he was capable by the end of it all kinda make me place him on my awesome-heroes-of-all-time list :D:D.

Characters I’d still like to mention are: Gilgamesh (from Fate/Zero) – because as much of an a-hole as he’s capable of being he’s also kinda noble in his own way and charismatic as fudge; Shion and Nezumi (from No. 6) – because I always end up with too many butterflies in my stomach when I see those two interacting :D; Matsuoka Rin (from Free!) – another tourmented soul that just so happens to look amazing as well ^^”; Edward and Alphonse Elric (from Fullmetal Alchemist: Brotherhood) – they’re just too awesome; and Kokutou Mikiya (from Kara no Kyoukai) – similar to Kaworu, Mikiya’s like a ray of sunshine in an otherwise pretty dark world.

Ok, that’s it for now ^^.
