30DAPC: Day 3

Day 3
Your anime crush


Well that's a creepy subject. But sadly, I can already think of a few that might fit into this category.

The "Cuteness"
"I can have ice cream, or put a stop to that serial killer. Hmmm...."
In the grand Kira vs L debate, I always sided with L, disagreeing with Kira on every level even before L's character was fully introduced. Considering the fact that (at least from what I can remember) he doesn't actually work for the police, you have to imagine that L's involvement in the Kira case was mostly a gut call on his part, so I always liked that. Beyond that, he was pretty smart and used Kira's own cockiness against him, and I've always liked it when cocky people were put in their place. So before L was introduced, I already liked him on an intellectual level.

And then he was introduced.

My god, is this man absolutely adorable. He's brilliant but a bit socially awkward, addicted to sweets, and although he works in a very grim field, he has a side of him that is adorably innocent. He's one of the few characters that you can see as an adorable chibi and not go, "Holy shit that is so wrong don't do that."

So my "cute crush" would have to be L.

The Stylish Devil
If you looked this good, your sister want would fuck you too.
And here's the man that I wish I didn't like: Akio Ohtori from Revolutionary Girl Utena. I really hate that I like this character. Believe me, I do. He's a monster. He has sex with every man, woman, child, monkey, car, and heavenly being in the entire series. But oh god. Does he have a style about him.

I can't really explain it. He's bad, he knows he's bad, and he's unapologetic. Yet as the other various characters are drawn to him, I found myself getting drawn to him to. Maybe all women do want jerks. I'm a horrible person. I'm a weak person. But I had a dream about him once. I don't know why, I don't usually have dreams about fictional characters. I don't have that sort of problem that makes me think he's real! But... I still had a dream about him. Twice. And oh. Was it a special dream. It was so special, when that part of the dream passed, my dream self SUDDENLY BECAME AWARE IT WAS A DREAM IN AN ATTEMPT TO LUCID DREAM HER WAY BACK TO HIM.

i need to move on before i reveal anything more embarassing

That Crazy Bitch
Eeeellllll Kabong!
There's that one character that's just so weird, energetic, that you can't help but fall in love with them. So it's no surprise that Haruko Haruhara from FLCL would round out my choices of crushes. It's both easy and hard to say what the appeal to her is. If someone were to meet her in real life, they'd be very, very scared. But in this setting she's absolutely perfect. Not to mention the fanservice... oh, the fanservice. Even when I watched this delightfully insane character when I was 12 (when it first started to air in the US), I knew there was something truly special about her. She, without a doubt, is one of those classic favorites for any anime fan.

(Just a note, yes, it's been a while since my last post, and I should be around day 10. However I've been pretty busy with summer college courses and I hate to leave any gaps... so yeah, gonna continue this way. Maybe I'll do a few double posts. I don't know. Oh well!)

See you later.
