Day Three wants to know your favorite male character.
First up, some honorable mentions to, amongst others, Inuyasha‘s lecherous itinerant monk with a black hole in his hand, Miroku, the titular Kenshin, as well as Sanosuke, from Rurouni Kenshin, Kawabara and Kurama, Yusuke and Hiei’s far more interesting sidekicks from YuYu Hakusho, Cowboy Bebop‘s fantastic Jet Black, and crack shot Daisuke Jigen from Lupin III. Now onto my actual choices.
Captain Kiichi Goto of Patlabor franchise fame is my number one choice. He heads up the ragtag band of delightful weirdos that make up Section 2, Unit 2 of the Tokyo Metropolitan Police department. He’s chill to a fault, but also sneaky brilliant and playfully devious. It’d probably suck to work for him, but he’s damn great to watch.
My second choice is Haku from Naruto, partially because I have a severe weakness for androgyness-ness, but mostly because he was just a damn good character that got killed off way too soon. The are very, very few good characters in Naruto, and pretty much every single one of them get the shaft in one way or another. Haku was nominally an antagonist and was subsequently killed off at the climax of the very first major story arc. Freakin’ DAMMIT. 😡
Now I’m just upset. But thanks for stopping by anyway.
See you Space Cowboy..
