Thirty Days of Anime - Day 3 - Your anime crush 
15th-Aug-2010 10:29 am
Well, I'm supposed to be visiting dalekboy and shazgirl this morning but the weather is horrible and wet out there right now. :(

So I'll indulge in a rant instead.

OK ladies and gentlemen, lets get one thing clear: animated characters are even less real than the tabloid reports of celebrities.

But I can, at a stretch, understand crushing on a celebrity like Di Caprio (for the ladies, well, mostly) or Jolie (for the gents, again mostly) who are at least allegedly real human beings.

Anime characters: not so much. Or at all.

Crushing on an anime character is seriously into "get a life" territory.

Grow the f**k up already.

In case it wasn't obvious this is a borderline topic that I nearly dropped.

Can't argue with you there. But then I don't even crush on apparently real humans (actual people or characters)

Pretty much my position as well.

Is one that I can almost understand. :)

And when I was younger, Shun-chan, but that was... complicated. As depicted in "Wild Card", so to speak.

Street Fighter?

Saint Seiya. Thought he was a girl for quite some time. This played through in an RPG and culminated in the fanfic "Wild Card" and other fics in that series (Resurrection [a prequel], Windlash [ditto], Snow Queen, Corruption, The Key, Vacation, Starpower, and several others up through Brave New World).

I hadn't really heard of that series - having just looked at the wikipedia page I can see how easy it would be to make that mistake (bishonen much?).

Particularly in the manga panel shown.
