DAAHHHHH! I just finished playing the game, The World Ends With You, on DSi. SOOOO GOOOOD! Rivals my love for the Zelda franchise. The storyline was so interesting, and I actually enjoyed battling (which is actually one of my least favorite parts in most games...). I totally fell in love with the Joshua character. He has been added to my favorite list of characters, the ones that make me want to date them... Well, not actually, but basically, I'm very choosy about what to put as my favourites. Here's the list! They are from games, manga, anime, or maybe even history! I seem to have a problem as I'm not interested in any real people in the present.
-Lelouch from Code Geass (anime)- I stayed up all night, excluding forty-five minutes of sleep at 7AM, watching the first season. The characters and plot really captured me... loved the ending of the second season :3
-Joshua from The World Ends With You (game) - played the first 3rd of the game in a month. Played the last two in one and a half weeks... gonna start the side quests now...
-Link from The Legend of Zelda (game) - my older sister played these games from about ten years ago, and I always enjoyed watching her. Then I finally started playing myself. Really started loving the series after Twilight Princess came out. I enjoyed the dark tones and themes, and of course, the art. >_<
-Vino from Baccano!! (anime) - Watched the 13 episodes in two days. The series was so confusing at first, but as I watched, I started getting the hang of it. The characters are so likeable, and the storyline was very different than I was used to and had no high school students!! Or annoying dense-girl romance, which is great! Lots of blood though.
-Allen from D. Gray-Man (manga) - I watched the anime first, but the ending was so unsatisfying, to I turned to the manga. The manga is definitely better. I like the idea behind it, and the humour just gets me laughing so hard.
-Cesare Borgia from history (and a manga) - I first found out about this guy from the manga called Cesare. I researched about him and found that he was a really mysterious and charasmatic person. Though his family was really... let's just say you don't want to eat dinner at his house.
-Edward Elric from Fullmetal Alchemist: Brotherhood (anime) - I got the anime in Blue-ray and watched all 60+ episodes in 5 days... At first, he was on my 'this character is likeable' list, but after his decision at the end regarding his brother's body bumped him right up to my favorites list.
Ok, you may be thinking that I watch and play waaaay too many hours of anime and games in a day, but the ones listes are the ONLY animes and games that caused me to do it. Usually, I spend around 1-2 hours each day on electronics for fun. Other honourable mentions are:
Tamaki from Ouran Highschool Host Club (anime)
Ranma from Ranma 1/2 (manga)
Medicine Seller from Mononoke (anime)
Ashitaka from Princess Mononoke (anime)
Natsume from Natsume Yuujinchou (manga)
Natsuno from Shiki (anime)
Nezumi from No. 6 (novel)
(All of them are male... oops... oh well, I'm a girl, can you blame me?)
Are any of these people on your favorite list?
