Day 12 – Favorite BL voice actor

*scratches head* See the ‘problem’ I’ve got here is that I’m not too familiar with seyuus in general ^^”. I mean, yeah, I’ll be able to recognise someone’s voice across different anime, but I’m really bad with names and all that jazz :D:D.

Still, after doing some research here are the names and faces behind some of the most awesome voices I’ve heard in a BL context (which is basically limited to BL anime/VNs, as I haven’t actually listened to drama CDs a lot).

Konishi Katsuyuki (小西 克幸)

5b819edbe3c8ef51ed97eaa154e6d528

Notable in my world (and in this context) for his role as Takano in Sekaiichi Hatsukoi :D. I know he also voiced Soubi in Loveless, but I was never really a fan of that show ^^”. Still, this guy’s voice is beyond amazing.

Sakurai Takahiro (櫻井 孝宏)

55E

He voiced Misaki in Junjou Romantica!! 😀

Taniyama Kishou (谷山 紀章)

748a05462056cdd21da59ddacf4770f2

He voiced Sono-san from Sensitive Pornograph and Gunji in Togainu no Chi (the anime). This guy also voiced Jean Kirstein in Shingeki no Kyojin xD.

Midorikawa Hikaru (緑川 光)

hikaru-midorikawa

Because he was brilliant in the role of Shiki in Togainu no Chi. Not to mention Lancer and Rukawa, among others ^___________________^.

Nakazawa Masatomo (中澤 匡智)

28879

He voiced Clear from DRAMAtical Murder (in both the VN and anime)!!!! What more could one ask for? ♡(˃͈ દ ˂͈ ༶ )

I’ll stop here before for now. Hope this post didn’t turn out too bland xD.

As always, thanks for stopping by! 🙂

Day 8 – Favorite love scene

Well initially I was sitting here, scratching the top of my head and trying to come up with a good answer. If I had to chose a scene where the characters specifically sleep with each other, I would go with the last love making scene from Sakura Gari (樱狩). However, there’s a wee bit too much drama in that manga overall and that somehow affected my overall enjoyment of it. Then there’s the love scene from Touch me again (タッチ・ミー・アゲイン). An interesting thing about this one is that you don’t even get to see anyone do anything. The reader merely see glimpses of that night, accompanied by the characters’ reminiscing and pondering and their feelings about what had happened at that time.

However, most of the moments that ‘stole my heart’ and made me giddy beyond belief didn’t really involve any intercourse in the first place. So the following is a list of what I wanted to write about in the first place, as I was literally banging my head against the wall trying to come up with scenes along the lines of the above. WARNING!!!! Kinda-sorta spoilers ahead :D. Not that you can have many mind-blowing spoilers in a yaoi, but hey xD. They’re mostly to do with details concerning the characters’ stories/path (cause some are from VNs).

  • Akira and Rin’s first kinda-sorta kiss (at least, I’m fairly sure that this was their first kiss), from Togainu no Chi (咎狗の血). Now I say ‘kinda-sorta’ because (don’t quote me on this though, it’s been a while since I read the VN ^^”) Rin was unconscious and Akira attempted to give him some water – because that’s the most legit thing to do give the circumstances – aaaaand cue the mouth to mouth xD. Apparently, Rin was dreaming all the while, specifically about some past unrequited love of his and ends up thinking that Akira is that guy and starts to kiss him. Or something-something along those lines xD.

433709

Now my clumsy way of presenting stuff most definitely makes this seem less intriguing than it actually is, but I swear that scene was sexy as fudge!!!! Now go read the VN! xD

  • This scene from In these words –

9784404

I hadn’t even read the manga at the time I first saw this panel, but dear lord, I loved it from the start. And after I got my hands on the manga, I couldn’t help but love this scene (not to mention Shinohara) even more. This illustration is also one of many that demonstrate TogaQ’s immense talent. I mean, I feel sad and pained just by looking at Shinohara’s expression. Ok, I’ll shush with the drama for now xD.

  • The entire OVA about Onodera and Takano while they were still in high school, from the Sekai-Ichi Hatsukoi (世界一初恋) series. That episode just oozes fluff and emotion and is beyond awesome! ^___^

35863

  • Pretty much every moment when Nezumi and Shion are together – with special emphasis on their kiss scenes xD – from No.6.

22367672

  • Clear’s return to Aoba, in DMMd, the VN. Enough said :D:D.

Clear

  • I can’t find a suitable image for it and I sure as fudge am too lazy to dig out my copy of One of these nights just now and take a picture, but the scene where Katsuya just shows up at David’s hotel room in the middle of the night and they hug (before moving on to the more 18+ activities xD) is just superb (♥ω♥ ) ~♪.

Can’t think of anything else just now, so I’ll leave it at that. As always, thanks for stopping by! 🙂

Day 5 – Favorite seme

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

615346

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

_david_krause__by_president__evil-d7wnmm7

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

In.These.Words.651107

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! 🙂

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)

eva3-2

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)

Ashitaka-princess-mononoke-17252430-853-480

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)

tumblr_mxavrq4Wc61s2xq89o4_500

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 ^^.
