Anime Characters that reminds me of Me!

Image

 

Izumi Konata is one of the main characters of the Lucky Star series. Konata reminds me so much of myself. First of all, she’s a hardcore otaku who loves anime and playing video games just like me. She can be intelligent at times but she hates studying so her grade’s aren’t all that good. I do have good grades but I really hate studying and I tend to pull all nighters and procrastinate like her. Konata is surprisingly athletic although she isn’t part of any clubs because it gets in the way of her anime. I am on the tennis team so I’m average at athleticism but at first glance, I don’t look like the type who can do sports.

Image

Konata also likes to play net games and is on her computer a lot. I’m the same. Sometimes I’d stay up all night on my computer and sleep in the morning. lol. She listens to anime music, goes to conventions, read a lot of manga, is lazy, and sometimes think like a middle aged man, like me! :3 I look up to her.

Image

Tainaka Ritsu is from the anime K-on. She’s the president of the Light Music Club and the drummer of the band. Her personality reminds me of me. She has an upbeat personality and likes making jokes. Ritsu can also be very lazy, like me 😀 Apparently she takes pride in her forehead, like me lol. I have no bangs. Ritsu is also boyish and her uniform is usually never tucked in. I’m pretty boyish and whenever my friends see me wear something girly, like skirts or sleeveless shirts, they act all surprise and make a big deal out of it so I very rarely wear skirts and sleeveless shirts.

Image

As much as I love Ritsu’s forehead, I really love it when she put her bangs down. She’s a different person, in a good way. Makes me wish I have bangs sometimes but I take pride in my shining forehead though!

Image

Sakamichi Onoda is from the ongoing series Yowamushi Pedal. He is a member of the Souhoku High School Bicycle Club, but I don’t ride bicycles competitively. The point is, he’s an otaku and so am I. He rides his bike to Akihabara every week even though it’s so far away. He also watches anime and gets his friend to watch it too. He sings anime songs while riding his bike. I ride my bike to school so I do the same thing. But I only sing when there’s no people around though so I usually ride when there’s not much people. He also wears glasses, I do too. Onoda is quite shy and has a hard time speaking up for himself. I’m the same, although when I’m with my friends, I’m the most talkative.

Image

Kuroki Tomoko is the protagonist of Watamote. She often has heavy bags under her eyes due to staying up too late playing games and watching anime. I don’t stay up that late when school’s going on but on summer break it’s completely different. Tomoko isn’t very sociable which explains me in class. But it’s not because I don’t wanna talk to them, it’s just that I don’t know how to. She is also perverted at times but she’s fairly optimistic. She thinks that it will only take about a month to get a boyfriend. She’s also had a lot of experience in dating in online games, which is what I’m mostly good at. Sometimes even I think I’m popular even though I know I’m not 😛

Image

Madarame Harunobu in the Genshiken series is the most hardcore otaku of the Genshiken memebers. He spends nearly all of his money on doujinshi. I do that too but I did it too much that my mom put all of my earned money in the bank so I can’t spend them T.T He secretly falls in love with this girl and he never has the courage to confess his feelings even after 3 years because he is sure that his feelings have no chance of getting returned. I’m the same. Never in my life have I ever asked someone out because I’m too shy and scared. It’s usually me getting asked out by them, not me asking them out. He looks geeky too, like me 🙂

So yeah, these characters all remind me of me and that’s why I love them. Mostly because most of them are otakus lol Regardless, these characters are also cool. I love Konata’s jokes and her face expressions. I love it when Ritsu teases her childhood friend and how she makes the room lively. I admire Onoda’s passion in cycling. I love Tomoko’s optimism and the way Madarame spends most of his money on doujinshi and anime stuff is kind of admiring. I love it when I watch an anime and I’m like, “Hey look, it’s the anime version of me.” -R!n

 

BTOOOM!

Image

Sakamoto Ryouta is an unemployed 22 year old who still lives with his mother. In the real world, he may seem like a good for nothing adult who doesn’t wanna work, but online, he’s one of the world’s top players of the combat game Btooom! One day Sakamoto Ryouta suddenly finds himself stranded on a mysterious island with nothing but a bag full of bombs called BIM and a strange crystal embedded in his left hand, with no memory of how and why he was there. But it doesn’t take long for him to figure out why he’s there because when he saw someone else in the island and tries to call for help, the first thing the stranger does is throw a bomb at him, attempting to kill him. Now Ryouta realized that he is now trapped in a real-life version of Btooom! Even as an ace player, it’s hard to play a game knowing that there’s no second lives and when you die, you will remain dead. The only way to get out of that messed up island is to kill seven other people before they can kill you.

Image

I seriously love this anime. It’s so exciting that I finished this in one go, no stopping. It’s crazy but good. It does have some blood and there’s some people attempting sexual stuff but nothing too bad. I’d really recommend you watch this if you don’t mind some blood and dealing with a crazy psychotic kid. The anime seems too short. I wish they’d make a season 2 out of it. They kind of just leave you hanging. I love how in the anime, the weapons are types and there’s different types of bombs. Of course your bombs are limited so you kind of have to steal from other people if you run out.

Image

I did mention a psychotic kid, right? Well he may be a little crazy but he’s my favorite. His name is Kira Kousuke. He’s sadistic and has lack of empathy. He’s like emotionless. I guess he wasn’t always like that. He has a mean and strict father who’s very abusive. Kousuke started pick pocketing and later on began to commit serious crimes such as murder and rape. Kousuke is also a heavy Btooom! player, nearly as good as Ryouta. He and his father got trapped in the island together. One day, Kira kills his father for self defense after his dad abuses him. I think the way he fights is cool and he’s father kind of deserved it.

Image

 

Then there’s the main girl, Himiko. She’s seriously pretty and hot. Her blonde hair and blue eyes often mistakes her for a foreigner. She is noticeably well-endowed which makes men often lust for her. She carries a stun gun around because she’s afraid of being touched by men. So yeah, she has a fear of guys. She’s even willing to kill herself than lose to a man who is attempting to sexually assault her. She’s pretty cool.

So yeah you guys should watch this. It’s really epic although a bit violent. It’s really exciting and I love the plot! A friend of mine recommended this and it’s kind of hard to please her, so this must be a good anime if she recommends it. 🙂 -R!n

 

Love Lab & Sayo’s Love Life

Image

The story of Love Lab takes place in Fujisaki Girls Academy which is known for their school body being composed of very proper students. The most prominent one of them is Maki Natsuo, the student council president who is admired by her classmates for her calm and polite demeanor. She even has a little nickname, “Fuji’s Princess”. On the other hand, Kurahashi Riko is also admired but for having a very forward and boyish personality and her nickname is the “Wild One”. It’s a funny anime that’ll make you laugh over and over again.

Image

Riko walks into the student council room only to find the admired Maki Natsuo kissing a body pillow with a picture of a guy for practice, and learns that she is not as collected as everyone thinks she is. Maki told Riko about how she’s always wanted to experience love. Riko, being a complete idiot at the time, told her how she has guys wrapped around her finger. Thinking that she’s a love expert, Maki asks Riko to help her practice romance activities. After that, Riko was forced to join the student council, digging a bigger hole for herself.

Image

Later in the show, 3 more characters will join them. There’s the secretary, Tanahashi Suzune (upper right with brown hair and glasses), the Vice President Enomoto Yuiko (red hair), and the treasurer Mizushima Sayori. Each of them have their own unique personalities. The secretary Suzu is a shy, petite girl. Her clumsiness makes her so cute :3 The VP Eno is the girl with the bushy eyebrows and is the childhood friend of Sayo. Eno used to be the President but she resigned due to Maki doing all the work by herself. The treasurer and my favorite character, Sayo is known to be somewhat wicked and wise. She loves money too much which was the reason why Maki fired her once because Sayo creeped her out but was later reinstated as the treasurer again.

Image

In Fujisaki Girls, relationships are forbidden. Regardless of that, Sayo actually has a boyfriend. She’s not really what you call girlfriend material. She started dating her boyfriend 6 months ago which was also the last time they saw each other. Her boyfriend actually mails her but Sayo would sometimes delete his mails because she’d think they were spam. During their 6 month anniversary date, Sayo wore jogging pants and a sweatshirt that she received from her cousin 3 years ago. It’s like she’s too lazy to wear anything fancy. But they’re still so cute.

Sayo and her boyfriend met when Sayo transferred from Fuji Girls to a coed school. She sat next to him. Everyone would think she’s weird cuz she’s always expressionless. The other kids would try to bully her but she would be quick to give out a wise retort that the bullies would back down. One day, the boyfriend and his friends were mop racing. He wasn’t looking where he was going, so he crashed onto Sayo and dove his face underneath her skirt. Sayo turned red, which was the first time he’s seen her with that kind of expression, and slapped him with a broom. Later on, he found her cute and his friends thinks he’s crazy.

Image

If you haven’t seen Love Lab, you should give it a shot. The first episode is really funny (my opinion) and I laughed really hard. It doesn’t really have a plot but it’s funny so it’s worth it. It only has 12 episodes so it doesn’t even take that much of your time. Join the student council as they practice love in their own unique, hilarious, and retarted way.

Yowamushi Pedal First Impressions

Image

A friend of mine is f*cking obsessed with this anime and I was like, “It doesn’t look all that good.” Of course as a fan, she started rambling about how good it is. So I decided to give it a shot and watch it. And I have to say that it’s actually way better than I expected. Right when I saw the opening, I was like, “Woah, that dude looks freaking cool!”

Image

The main character, Onoda Sakimichi (the one with the glasses that’s being called an otaku), is seriously like me. When he rides his bike, he tends to sing anime songs out loud like a total nerd (no offense. I am one too). I’m still in episode 5 and so far he’s my favorite character. He wears glasses, barely interacts with anyone and wants to revive the anime club. And then there’s this cyclist, Imaizumi, who saw Onoda riding his bike up a slope so calmly and even singing without having his feet touch the ground and on top of all, he was riding a mommy bike (see the 1st pic). Imaizumi was shocked to see a total amateur riding like that so he challenged him for a race. I was so hooked that I stayed up til 4 am saying, “I can’t sleep until I finish watching their race!”

Image

The main reason why I hesitated watching this anime is because of this guy, Makishima Yuusuke. Honestly, at first I thought he looked creepy but then after watching him, I totally changed my view on him. He’s cool!

This anime taught me a bunch of stuff about bikes that I never even knew. I’ve been riding my bike since I was 9! Did you know that the height of your seat affects the speed of your riding? Apparently, if you put your seat high, you ride faster. I never knew that! And apparently the smaller your gear is the more you have to pedal to go fast. >.<

Image

Onoda Sakimichi has been riding his bike since fourth grade, going to Akihabara once a week which would take him about 2 hours to get there normally. But he rides so fast with an old mommy bike without him noticing it that everyone was impressed. I mentioned that he reminds me of myself. Another reason is because even though he wanted to join the anime club, he ends up cycling. I used to be in the anime club, but then I found tennis and decided to join it. I’ve been playing tennis since. And I also wear glasses :3

Image

If you haven’t watched Yowamushi Pedal, you should. It has comedy and competition in it. It will be worth your time. The anime is still ongoing. I think it has 15 episodes right now. Now, if you’ll excuse me, I will watch some Yowamushi Pedal. -R!n 🙂

 

Ouran High School Host Club

Image

 

 

First off I should start by saying that this is an awesome and funny anime and you should watch it if you haven’t already. This anime is about a bunch of boys in the Ouran host club who have too much time on their hands entertaining girls who also have way too much time on their hands. One day, transfer honor student Haruhi Fujioka was looking for a quiet place to study when she stumbled upon an abandoned music room. When she opened the door, there she found the host club. Haruhi (who is a she) accidentally knocked over and broke an antique vase valued 8,000,000 yen (which is about $80,000). In order to pay her debt she was forced to dress up as a boy and become a host!

Image

The members of the Ouran High School Host Club all have different types and personalities. Here’s senior student Mitsukuni Haninozuka (picture above) also known as Honey-sempai. Honey is considered as a “boy lolita”. He is an older boy who likes cute things and due to his size, he himself is also cute. He loves sweets and his stuffed bunny, Usa-chan. Despite his cute face, Honey is easily angered when awakened from his slumber. And since the Haninozuka family have excelled in martial arts for generations, Honey is said to be the best martial arts champion in Japan. He’s usually together with his cousin and another host club member, Takashi Morinozuka.

Image

Takashi Morinozuka, also known as Mori, is a 3rd year student at Ouran Academy and is considered as the “wild type”. Mori is usually always with his cousin and bestfriend, Honey. The Morinozuka family have served the Haninozuka family for generations. No matter what, Mori always looks out for Honey. He is a national champion in kendo and a skilled karate practitioner. His stoic and sometimes scary demeanor hides the fact that he has a peculiar connection with animals. Mori only speaks what is needed to be said and he is loyal and generous.

Image

Kyoya Ootori is a 2nd year at Ouran Academy and is the Vice President of the Ouran Host Club. He is considered as the “cool type”. Kyoya is the true director and puppet master behind the scenes, taking care of the host club’s financial and planning aspects. As the third son of the wealthy Ootori family, he has been brought up to believe that he must surpass his two older brothers in order to take over the family business and to meet his strict father’s high expectations. He is kind of like the “Mommy” of the host club while the President is the “Daddy”. Kyoya is a calm and logical person with superior intelligence. He usually carries a book to put in data of their costumers. He can also be scary, especially when you wake him up in the mornings.

Image

Hikaru and Kaoru Hitachiin are first year students at Ouran Academy. As you can probably tell, they’re identical twins and are considered as the “little devil type”. Hikaru is the oldest of the twins, but despite that, he is less mature than Kaoru when it comes to dealing with his emotions and others. The twins are perceived as mischievous troublemakers. They’re selling point in the Host Club is their “Forbidden Love,” which has them acting out as brothers in love with each other to entertain their female costumers. 

Ever since they were kids, Hikaru and Kaoru always isolate themselves from others. They’re always together in their own little world and they never let anyone in. But after joining the Host Club, they’ve started opening up bit by bit. They play this common game with their guests called “Which One is Hikaru?” The only person who’s able to answer correctly is Haruhi Fujioka. I guess that explains why they’re so attached to her.

Image

Rene Tamaki Richard de Grantaine Suoh also known as Tamaki Suoh is a 2nd year student and the son of the Ouran Academy Chairman. He is also the co-founder and the official president of the Ouran Host Club and is known as the “princely type.” He is a enthusiastic, flamboyant, egotistical, and dramatic person who is seriously attached and in love with Haruhi. As childish as he is, he is a smart young man who can also play the piano. He cares for the host club as if they were his family and he usually calls himself the “Daddy” of the family and to Haruhi.

As a child, Tamaki grew up with his mother in France. He was forced by his strict grandmother to be separated with her by moving to Japan and to never have contact with her mother again. But despite all that, Tamaki is always smiling and livens up the Host Club with his silliness. 

Image

Haruhi Fujioka is a highly intelligent first year at Ouran Academy. She is poor and attends the Academy on scholarship. Haruhi is considered as the “natural”. She is a straightforward person and believes that one’s gender should not define one’s personality. She displays more practical and responsible qualities and is not easily swayed by the charm of the hosts. Upon being an inexperienced host, she becomes and immediate hit with the ladies due to her conversational skills and her charming smile, thus gaining the title of the “Natural” type.

Before school started, Haruhi has long and beautiful hair but some kid from her neighborhood put gum on her hair which forced her to cut it short. She used to wear large glasses, have messy hair, and no uniform but with the help of the host club, she becomes the person who she is that charms the ladies with her kindness. She is treated like the loved “princess” by the host club.

Image

Doesn’t this wanna make you watch it? I know I do. I feel like watching it all over again! The host club is a funny anime that shows you friendship, happiness, sadness, and some funny stuff. If you’re feeling tired, lonely, or felt like you just wanted to laugh, then the host club is a place to be! -R!n

K-on!

Image

 

I am like in LOVE with this anime. I’ve seen both seasons many times. They all belong in this club called the Light Music Club where they start a band. The name of the band is Houkago Tea Time/Afterschool Tea Time basically because they drink tea and eat sweets more than they actually practice. It’s funny and I love their deep friendship. One girl in the story said that they didn’t get much members is because they’re so close, they’re kind of hard to approach. I love how they all have different personalities especially Yui and Ritsu’s. While I watched this anime though, I envy them. Anyone would want a friendship likes theirs. Then there’s the rich ojousama, Tsumugi (Mugi) whose is so cute with her and her thick eyebrows :3 They also have the kouhai Nakano Azusa who Yui hugs all the time and called her Azu-nyan because she’s like a cat. This anime doesn’t really have a specific plot and some people don’t like that. It has some emotional moments that will make you cry and it has funny moments that will also make you cry because you were laughing too hard.

Image

The main characters aren’t the only ones I love. Their teacher and advisor, Yamanaka Sawako-sensei is like the best teacher ever! I wish I have her as a teacher. The way her personality transformed after the Light Music Club found out about her being in the previous Light Music Club when she was a student was freakin’ awesome! And her band wasn’t even Light, it was more like metal and her personality was the complete opposite of what she was showing her students. I also love how Yui’s younger sister, Ui, is more mature than her. Yui’s childhood friend, Nodoka, is also adorable with her and her glasses. There’s no character in this anime that I hate. I love them all!

Image

It’s not only the characters and their jokes that I like, I also like their music. One of my favorites is the ending song No, Thank You. Even though the lyrics to their music was childish, it was fluffy and it has a nice feel to it. As the show goes on, their music becomes better and better. Although I like Yui, I honestly prefer Mio as a vocalist but since she’s usually shy, Yui’s the only that can do it. But either way, it’s still good.

Image

 

If I have to pick a favorite character, it’s definitely Ritsu. I love it when she plays the drums but I mostly love her jokes and funny comments, especially when she teases Mio, her childhood friend and the bass player. They make a great pair and I also ship the both of them. But anyways, the way Ritsu takes pride in her forehead is funny and it was surprising when I saw her with her bangs down since it was long. Her craziness it what I like about her.

If you haven’t watched K-on yet, you should. It’s a funny anime, it’s worth it. You seem them trying to aim for the top. They may goof around a lot and rarely practice, but when it’s time to perform, they get the job done. *sigh* I wish my highschool life was this exciting lol  -R!n
