Character Spotlight


Kousei Arima - Well, if you hadn't guessed from the little graphic I put up before all my votes, I really like Your Lie in April. Personally think it's the best show currently airing. And yes, I am bummed that Kaori got knocked out in the first round (SALTINESS INTENSIFIES). Now that I got that all off my chest, I'd like to discuss one of the main characters from the show, Kousei. I find him to be one of the more fascinating characters of 2014.







Well, that took a while. I promised myself I wouldn't do stuff like this and I did anyways.



This is simply an excellent vote. If you don't know who this kid is, I advise EVERYONE to go and re ad this vote. That is exactly who he is.

Splendid work my friend, it was a pleasure.

I'll vote for Arima, when he can actually play through an entire song in competition without drowning, until then....


Rem...so cruel you are.

Allow me to borrow a few minutes of your time to remind you that Joseph was awesome in his youth as well

I'm just prematurely salty cause Shinobu is takign a nasty beating. And i don't understand why. As I've said before Kaneki at least had those last 5 minutes to put a nice ribbon his development, but Arima? not even that. If anything he's stalled. he fucks up and you think oh okay he'll learn from this and do better next time, Nope. next time comes and he fucks that up too. you think damn this boy's got a lot of issues, maybe this will finally give him that push, NOPE. So it's frustration rooted in complete inability to understand his appeal.

edit: the things i gleaned from Shawns vote is that his appeal is you can pity him? cause the bulk of what I read seemed to be plusses for Kaori rather than Kousei...

Son Hak (Akatsuki no Yona) - Best bodyguard ever. If I only had one vote for the entire contest, it would go to Hak.

Shinobu Oshino (Monogatari) - World's coolest vampire.

Koyomi Araragi (Monogatari) - Perverted problem solver.

Yuuki Yuuna (Yuuki Yuuna wa Yuusha de aru) - Cute, brave, little hero.

Inaho Kaizuka (Aldnoah Zero) - Cool, collected, genius.

Rem, I'll probably be saltier if Joseph loses to Nico.

Or maybe not, I'll just be judging all of you

Well, I have no doubt there will be more Shinobu votes later, that's almost a guarantee. Your frustrations are understandable, others have voiced the same criticism of him in the discussion thread actually.

It's just that his relationship with his mother is such a traumatic experience for him. There are some deep rooted issues there. So for me, if he were to just move on so early from this problem it would be too quick imo. I think the way he plays in the second half of his performances is the development, it's like you are seeing real-time how he is beginning to now cope and move forward from this painful memory.

Kate Hoshimiya - She's a tiny would be world conqueror, I like her spunk.

Satsuki Kiryuin - Her charisma(read: light show) and strength draws others to her side.

Joseph Joestar - Traveling halfway around the world to save his daughter's life. Holy shit! He's cool.

Steph Dola - Punching bag cutie.

Esdeath - Can I just say no to Inaho? no, fine... Esdeath is a super sadist, she's very cruel towards her enemies(and subordinates who let Tatsumi out of their sight). She, however, has another caring side that she shows to her allies.

Chiyo Sakura - Straightman not Paras.

Ban - Immortal with regret.

Koyomi Araragi - Willing to throw himself into life or death situations for the sake of his harem, even without any real power.

Shinobu Oshino - Prideful pompous petite.

Hak - This guy cracks me up. His sarcastic straight faced nonsense is too good. He's also ridiculously strong and loyal. Also, fuck that hair ornament.

♥︎Konnichiwa♥︎, it’s nice to finally meet you!

I’m here to collect votes, as you might've already guessed. As the rules say, if I don’t get a notification when you vote, I won't ever be able to notice you, ♥︎senpai♥︎! And it If don't notice it can't be counted.This is mandatory. The admins are super super busy, so let me handle it.

I look forward to ♥︎counting all your votes♥︎!


[VOTE]

Kate Hoshimiya (Sekai Seifuku)
The world would be a better place if Kate conquered us all (Zvezda salute). Plus smoking would be banned. Who wouldn't want her to win?

Niko Yazawa (Love Live!) It's spelled Nico isn't it?
Of all the girls, she is the one that puts the most effort in. She takes her work seriously and is also honest with her feelings, something that the other girls don't do which ends up causing problems.

Steph Dola (No Game No Life)
Poor Steph never wins at anything! At least let her win a round or something.

Killua Zoldyck (Hunter x Hunter)
Crazy family, yet manages to stay sane. (sorta) I really enjoy the good kid in a bad environment vibe. He's one of the main reasons I (and probably others) are looking forward so much to see the series be finished.

Asuna Yuuki (Sword Art Online)
Among female leads in anime, Asuna's character is a modern classic. She has it all: looks, personality, strength, inner strength...who wouldn't want her to be their waifu? I think this character is one of the few who actually deserves to get to the final round.

Hisoka (Hunter x Hunter)
I have a hidden love for troll characters. This guy is just on a whole other level. While he's two-faced most of the time, I enjoy seeing that he isn't genuinely evil. He is just looking for some entertainment (and boys wtf?).

[/VOTE]

I honestly couldn't figure out if I should vote for rika or lady satsuki...I just can't decide! A shame they matched Asuna against Paras.

♥︎might've♥︎

Winter

Toshinari Seki (Tonari no Seki-kun)- Keikaku Doori. Seki-kun's master plan to mow over normal duration shows with his Bride-to-be Rumi-sama. Seki-kun, making swimsuit episodes about robots and not about who cries the most! Show them the power of bears, driving tests, being home in time to spend with your family.

Mako Mankanshoku (Kill la Kill)- Obviously, she and Gamagoori are a bad match. I would have killed for her to have a decent love interest, but it was not to be, since Nerd-kun was only interested in the 2-D 3D. Kate has no depth and we found out nothing about her, so Mako is of course better!

Satsuki Kiryuin (Kill la Kill)- 1 of Satsuki's hairs from her considerable eyebrows is (imo) 12.4 times better than the whole Delusions Universe, and all variations thereof.

Hozuki (Hoozuki no Reitetsu)- Tough, intelligent, spazztic, Hijikata vibes, if only I could get him to wear some proper shoes! Unfairly OP, and diligent, but whimsical, and also he is not in high school.

Spring

Joseph Joestar (JoJo)- Multilingual, Pilot, Most Powerful Hamon Master in the world, hell, I got spoiled on some "questionable things" he did, and I didn't even give a shit =p. Nico's voice is very annoying.......She should lose her voice more with all the whining and bitching she does.

Ryuunosuke Tanaka (Haikyuu!)- City Boy Rumble.

Steph Dola (No Game No Life)- Smarter than most people give her credit for, and sometimes less. And let's be honest here, Hase only wants to make friends with Girlie from One Week Friends cause he wanted to bang her, and hard! All she wanted was pure friendship, and he keeps pushing his relationship agenda the same way that Kawaii Complex did, and while Hase was infinitely more tolerable, Steph is obviously #1 in Sora's harem.

Akira Midousuji (Yowapeda)- Mostly everyone in this contest is not aware of his excellent character deve. It's their loss! Every single chara in that show gets deve up the wazoo! And out of it too! Umi, you know I love ya babe, but, you gotta take one for the team for 1st year Mido Legend. Maybe Eli can comfort you, in the loser's pool.....now I am imagining both of them in a pool.....

Summer

Esdeath (Akame ga Kill)- Canon Boobs. I think I saw some canon fan art of her somewhere, I will be sure to link that to Loomy when I get the chance. Ugh, I don't get why people like monotonous and emotionless characters like that, at this point, I gotta ask if it's just me. Look at Sento. Anyways, Esdeath is very cool. /puts on sunglasses.

Killua Zoldyck (Hunter x Hunter)- I will be the first to admit that Kill is extremely overrated! It may be my Ran bias, but.....he's the copy =p. Well, Sinon only pretends she is not in His harem, I don't like liars.

Asuna Yuuki (Sword Art Online)- Don't Rape Her.

Hisoka (Hunter x Hunter)- Sorry Touka! Better luck next year! Hisoka.....the only word that can perfectly describe him: SCHWING! Best friend: Palm. Best Admirer: Biscuit. Best Gon: Gon. Hisoka vs Ging vs Chrollo vs Illumi vs Kill's Dad.....Make it happen please T_T. Hisoka is a master at galge, and I can appreciate how he didn't take the easy way out going after Kurapika.

Fall

Ban (Nanatsu no Taizai)- Ban Loves Hairdressers.

Rita (Shingeki no Bahamut)- I want to thank you Rita. You and Kaisar made that show very, very enjoyable :'D. Aragi, needs to stop NTR, right after the next arc, someone is gonna have a baby.

Shinobu Oshino (Tsukimonogatari)- YES! Shinobu please take me right here and now! Better than Glasses boy over there who has no sense of humor, and is one of the most generic characters I've ever seen in anime, right after Kaori, from the same show.

Yuuji Kazami (Grisaia no Kaijutsu)- He is Japanese and works for the Japanese government, so that right there is a huge plus. This means that he is the BEST TRAINED and MOST OP. He "probably" has a huge dick too. Wait, let me put probably in quotes. LOL. Hak is very boring!

VOTE

Winter:
Dandy- He lives the Dandy way and that's really the only way someone should live.

Mako Mankanshoku- The greatest mascot in anime history.

Satsuki Kiryuin- She is a firm but caring leader who never backs down from a fight. She is also a fantastic strategist.


Spring:

Niko Yazawa- She puts a lot of effort towards advancing her dream and is passionate in her beliefs.

Ryuunosuke Tanaka- He protects his waifu from all threats and challenges.

Steph Dola- Though she is rather naive she proves herself to be a wise politician and arguably kept humanity afloat until the arrival of Sora and Shiro.

Summer:

Esdeath- She's simply less of a douche than Inaho.

Sakura Chiyo- Hilarious character with a bright and caring personality. Also, the fact she is able to put up with Nozaki's bs makes her more than deserving.

Fall:

Yuuki Yuuna- She stands up for what she believes in and never gives up hope. She's also very empathetic and forgiving.

Koyomi Araragi- Harem god, puts up with so much bs and even then people wont pronounce his name correctly. Give him the vote already!

Arima Kousei- My personal favourite character of the year. His journey is one of a boy growing into a man. He confronts his fears and deeply scarred emotional past and eventually accepts who he is and finds a reason to return to something he long believed was lost to him.

Yuuji Kazami- He is the beast in the booth! He runs fast, hits hard and reads books while picking up bitches like there's no tomorrow. His attitude towards his harem is extremely refreshing compared to the generic self-concious characters we usually have to deal with.

Any match-ups not voted on are due to me not seeing one or more of the anime in contest.

Last time I wrote way too much and it took way too much time. This time around I'll be more concise.

VOTE

Winter

Toshinari Seki (Tonari no Seki-kun) - Haven't been able to watch Space Dandy, but Seki is hilarious with his weird activities during class.

Kate Hoshimiya (Sekai Seifuku) - I like Mako too, but Venera-sama needs more love. Despite her small size, she has a commanding presence, with which she rules her organization. She is a great leader, but she still has a lot to conquer, so I hope one day there will be a sequel series.

Satsuki Kiryuin (Kill la Kill) - Haven't been able to watch Chuuni, but Satsuki is a very strong, determined girl with a clear goal. She may have to be cruel to achieve what she wants to accomplish, but she knows it is all worth it. Her intimidating presence is hard to beat.

Hozuki (Hoozuki no Reitetsu) - Again, I haven't been able to watch Chuuni, but Hozuki is a very hilarious deadpan character. His shenanigans (often at the cost of the Great King Enma) are fun to watch.


Spring

Joseph Joestar (JoJo) - Quite a hard choice, since I like both Nico and Joseph a lot, but I had to go with Joseph for his hilarious Engrish.

Maki Nishikino (Love Live!) - Haven't been able to watch Haikyuu, but Maki is one of my favorite characters from Love Live. She may not be the cheeriest of the group, but she is a very talented individual. Her clashing with Nico is also entertaining.


Summer

Killua Zoldyck (Hunter x Hunter) - I don't think Shino is that bad of a character, but I think Killua is the stronger one of the two. Killua's struggle between his assassin roots and Gon's friendship is both hard and interesting to watch. He always tries his best to make Gon happy, even if it is detrimental to others or himself.

Hisoka (Hunter x Hunter) - I haven't been able to watch Tokyo Ghoul, but Hisoka is one of the most entertaining characters from HxH. His deadly shenanigans are unpredictable and even his allies know not to trust him. His creepiness towards Gon serves to make him even more intimidating.


Fall

Yuuki Yuuna (Yuuki Yuuna) - I haven't been able to watch Nanatsu no Taizai, but Yuuki Yuuna is truly a hero. She always aims to make everyone happy, fights with limitless courage and is not afraid to make sacrifices for her friends.
