There’s certainly no shortage of anime hotties out there! I’d even go so far as to say that some of them are so molten hot that 3D men simply cannot hold a candle to them… In spite of this vast and varied selection, I seem to continually find myself falling for characters who are more of an… acquired taste… Characters who may be attractive in a physical sense, but are so seriously weird that it’s embarrassing to admit to holding a torch for them. Since the best (and most fun) way to get to know somebody is by finding out all of their dirty little secrets, here are five of my strangest anime crushes! Stay tuned for the girls at a later date.
I’d like to apologise for the brevity of today’s post. This week my husband and I closed on our first home! Since then, all of our free time has been spent resisting the urge to strangle each other as we attempt to put together an entire home’s worth of flatpack furniture. So, yeah, my brain is completely fried! It also doesn’t help that this week’s episode was probably the weakest so far. It wasn’t bad, per se, it just failed to bring anything new to the table… We didn’t meet any new characters, we didn’t learn anything new about the ones who we’ve already met, and there were no new developments in the story. That being said, it did endear me to poor, sweet Hatori…
This week’s episode felt almost like a palate cleanser. It was upbeat, energetic, and a lot of fun! Nothing at all like last week’s dark and foreboding episode. And that’s entirely thanks to the introduction of Ayame, the snake of the Sohma zodiac and Yuki’s older brother. It doesn’t take long for the cracks (or should that be crevasses?) in the two brothers’ relationship to appear. In fact, it’s obvious right from the get-go that Yuki cannot stand A-ya. Tohru does her best to smooth things over between them, but this might be the one thing that positivity and a can-do attitude can’t fix…
This week I was nominated twice over to participate in the “My Pirate Crew” tag. Thanks to both Karandi and Winter Reverie for considering little ol’ me! Whilst a fun tag, the idea of being stuck on a boat indefinitely is not my idea of a good time. I’m not the strongest of swimmers and, to be honest with you, the ocean freaks me out (did you know that we’ve explored more of space than we have our own oceans? Who knows what kind of horrors lurk in the deepest depths?). I’d much rather stick to exploring land, thank-you very much! That said, that wouldn’t be in keeping with the “My Pirate Crew” tag, so, to make up for being stuck on a boat, I’ll pick the most fun shipmates there ever was!
- Display the My Pirate Crew logo and add ‘My Pirate Crew’ as a tag.
- Thank the blogger who nominated you and post a link to their blog.
- Link back to the original post here (so I can compare your crews to mine).
- Select seven anime characters and give them a position on the crew. These are the positions you can to fill. Warrior, sniper, chef, doctor, scientist, navigator, strategist, mechanic, entertainer.
- Nominate 5-10 bloggers.
- Set sail and rule the seas!
Without any further ado, here’s my crew!
In celebration of yet another fantastic episode of My Hero Academia (MHA) this week, in which Bakugou and Midoriya were finally able to diffuse the tension between them through an epic clash of fists, I would like to dedicate September’s Character Spotlight to my favourite fledgling hero (as well as one of my all-time favourite anime characters), Izuku Midoriya.
