Andy’s List: Top 10 Glasses Character (Good Boys)

Time and again, characters with redeeming qualities or especially different physical characteristics make them stand out the most. In Andy’s list, you will see my ranking of these characters.

For the first Andy’s list feature, we have the megane (glasses) characters! Characters with glasses always attracted me a lot. Maybe it’s because I do wear glasses myself. Good-looking guys who wear glasses are extremely attractive to me especially since people with glasses in the anime world are typically stereotyped as nerds. I like geeks and nerds. I know, I’m weird.

Without further ado, here’s my top ten favorite megane character in the world of anime. Please take note that megane characters do not only have clear eyeglasses, but I included the ones with tints in here as well.

TEN

Aburame Shino of Naruto

Aburame Shino from Naruto and Naruto Shippuden is one of the most interesting characters I have ever seen in my life. Besides his mysteriously hot side, he is known for his ability to control bugs of all sorts. While I do think he’s hot enough to make this list, I think his ability to be a house for these bugs is disturbingly gross.

NINE

Uryuu Ishida of Bleach

I don’t want to be mainstream here, but hey, Ishida is one of the hottest megane characters I have ever seen in my life. He’s extremely skilled with his weapon, and he looks a lot like Sebastian Michelis of Kuroshitsuji. What I like him is the way he plays all cool and stuff, but he’s a softie inside. Sometimes he acts like a complete idiot though.

EIGHT

Sadaharu Inui of Prince of Tennis

Sadaharu Inui is a stereotypical megane character with a disturbing twist. He is a geek, true, and he plays tennis through a thorough analysis of the opponent’s data. He is however, a masochist trainer though and he punishes members of the Tennis Club with a strong weird juice that will send you to your death (okay, maybe not, but it’s close). He is extremely caring of his juniors and his chibi version is just adorable.

SEVEN

Loki of Fairy Tail

I like the celestial spirit Loki over the Fairy Tail member Loki. For some reason, the latter just seems so plain and boring and he never attracted my attention before, but when Loki the Lion appeared for the very first time, he just seemed so.. spirit-like (so to speak). His hair is a whole lot bigger (bigger is better?) and his eyeglasses have a new shape. I often draw his chibi form on scraps of paper. It’s just so cute.

SIX

Heiwajima Shizuo of Durarara!

Shizu-chan as Izaya calls him, Heiwajima Shizuo is the most violent man in Ikeburo. It’s his past that makes you want to hug him so tight! From his blonde hair, to those sexy bartender outfit and the purple-tinted glasses, Shizuo is just once cool dude. His complex of wanting to kill Izaya the second he sights him and his protective older brother status makes him even cooler.

FIVE

Mido Ban of Get Backers!

Mido Ban is the other half of the Get Backers team. I like him better than Ginji (although Ginji is extremely kawaii) simply because he has a feel similar to that of Shizuo. Also, his evil eyes have a power I wish to have – controlling people’s nightmares. I’d imagine using it on all the bad guys!

FOUR

Edogawa Conan of Meitantei Conan

With over 600 episodes, the forever young award also goes to Conan. The extremely cunning detective with an eye for everything is one I also wish to be. I always wanted to have such amount of logic I could pass for a detective. And of course, Shinichi is really cute too. The only question is, how long has it been since he was a child? Is Ran already like 30 or so years old now?

THREE

Maes Hughes of Full Metal Alchemist Brotherhood

Maes Hughes makes it to my top three. He is an extremely funny character with a deep obsession towards his family and devotion to his friends. You might say he’s a bit too curious which led him to his end, but I like pristine and good characters.

TWO

Tsukishiro Yukito of Cardcaptor Sakura

Yukito is one of the first megane characters I have encountered during my childhood. I have seen Card Captor Sakura about 10 times and it’s always Yukito I watch out for. He’s extremely kind and nice (like me?), likes food a lot especially sweets (like me again) and he transforms into a cool white-haired angelic creature (ummm.. okay, so not like me now). His angelic smile just brightens up any dull gloomy day.

ONE

Ootori Kyouya from Ouran High School Host Club

Those long fingers.. that stare.. those eyeglassess.. that strong nose line.. I don’t know if you would see anything wrong with Kyouya. He’s obviously the most perfect character ever!

 Kyouya’s hotness doesn’t just spring from his looks. He is extremely intelligent and well-organized (I like this in a guy ♥), a total controller of situations (so when things don’t go his way, he looks really insanely cute), a caring friend, sort of a sadist (yay!), extremely sly and cunning, he’s tall (hooray again! i’m super tall too), incredibly rich (owning private police, hospitals, among other corporations), and so many other perfect things! There’s no way in hell a guy like this exists in the real world.

Cool and all, Kyouya still has a cute side to him too. He says everything he does is for his benefit, but he puts his best foot forward to help someone in need.

Did your favorite character make it to this list? If not, please leave a comment on who you think should be on this list and I will try my best to fangirl over him as well. More lists to come in the future!

Project 52: Otaku Girl (Episode 8)

OMG. I am so sorry you guys. I have been so busy with school work and stuff that I was not able to write about the stuff I had last week and Episode 9 will be delayed as well. 

I did manage to finish up some stuff. I just did not have the time and energy to write them. I am still recovering from the extremely tiring work I did for the department event we had last Wednesday. I got tired, but it was a lot of fun. It’s not Otaku related though. I kind of wished it was. Then I would not really mind being a slave. LOL

This week’s stuff:

1. MANGA: Fruits Basket

2. JDRAMA: Erai Tokoro ni Totsuide Shimatta

3. ANIME: Fairy Tail (episodes 48 onwards)

4. SONG/VIDEO: Season – Dream Live 3 (Tenimyu) by Hyotei Gakuen Actors

MANGA

I finally gave up on Vampire Knight. I guess it’s really a great manga, but the scanlations were so bad, I could not understand a thing. If you guys know of better scanlations than what realitylapse provide, please let me know. The good news though is that I finally resolved myself to download the Vampire Knight series. That is, when I finished downloading 120 episodes of Fairy Tail (don’t worry, I have to download about 5-6 episodes more)

I love Fruits Basket! I loved the original anime when it was shown in the Philippines a few years back. I never got the chance to finish it though because the channel decided to stop airing it about halfway through. 

I love the manga, and I have been reading this for weeks now. There’s not a lot – about 26 volumes in all, but knowing the TV hoarder that I am, I have no choice but to set aside the littlest amount of time for manga. I can pretty much finish an 11-episode Jdrama in two day’s time (which in actuality is around 5-8 hours only, coz I skip the opening songs and whatnot), so I don’t have as much for mangas lately. That’s about to change next week, since I am almost done with all 120 episodes of Fairy Tail available. And yes, I did not just download them, I watched them all. 

Anyway, this manga is Shoujo. It’s absolutely interesting! The story is about Tohru, a girl whose mom died so she was looking for a place to stay. At first she camps out the woods. Because of an earthquake/landslide incidence, the Souma family who owns the forest land, decided to adopt her. But there’s a problem. Men in the Souma family (well, most of them at least) are under the zodiac curse. When women hug them, they turn into their zodiac animal counterparts. 

Even if I haven’t finished the entirety of the manga, I know this is just going to be great. 

THE VERDICT: Highly recommended

JDRAMA

Image from http://wiki.d-addicts.com/Erai_Tokoro_ni_Totsuide_Shimatta!

 Nakama Yukie is one of my favorite actresses. If you are a fan of mainstream Jdramasa, you would recognize her as the lead in the Gokusen series. I’ve seen her Ring-O: Birthday as well where she played Sadako, and she’s a very well-rounded actress I think.

In this story, she plays Kimiko Makimura, later Kimiko Yamamoto, a girl who married Isojirou Yamamoto. She was brought to the house of Yamamoto where she is surprised about a lot of Japanese traditions she had to encounter. Above all that, her mother in law is very misunderstanding. She does not understand that Kimiko hates their traditions and way of life, and thinks of it as a way of Kimiko trying her best to learn their ways. Kimiko also does not notice, but even if she hated the traditions, she enjoyed being in the company of family.

THE VERDICT: I’ll tell you in Episode 9. This is a beautiful Jdrama though. If you want to learn more about traditional marriage arrangements as well as other common traditions in Japan, you would learn a lot from this drama.

ANIME

What can I say? Fairy Tail is my favorite drama this week, last week, and probably for another month. I even took screenshots while watching. I’m thinking of compiling them into an album. What do you guys think?

THE VERDICT: Recommended to the Infinite-st level!

SONG/VIDEO

Although it’s not the anime version, I really love this song from the live action version of Prince of Tennis. There’s about 7 Dream Live Concerts, and this is the only one I watched. Anyway, this has the best actors in all Dream Live Concerts because the characters were really portrayed well.

I don’t think anyone is allowed to play Atobe other than Kazuki-kun.

This song is very beautiful. Suteki~

THE VERDICT: Love it. Absolutely. The other songs from Hyotei are absolutely amazing as well!

That’s it for Episode 8. Please watch out for Episode 9 tomorrow and Episode 10 sometime next week. I will do my best to catch up to all writing. Please watch out because I will try to be really active this week.
