So I've been rewatching Utena.

You guys, do you know how many fucking trigger warnings that show needs nowadays?

Oh sure, on the surface it looks like a standard shoujo anime, with you know a little DV in the first episode but that's so we know Saionji's an asshole. Oh and the bullying, too. That's ep 1. Oh, parental death. That should probably be on there.

Then we get into the, like:
-incest
-depression
-statutory rape
-child rape (is that the TV series too or just the movie? I'm pretty sure both)
-your best friend turning on you like a motherfucker
-animal abuse/animal death
-fucking terrifying swords

...and I'm sure I'm missing several things.

Probably a TW is unnecessary for abuse of the English language though, right, Touga?

So, [livejournal.com profile] harukami posted a meme that goes something like this: reply and I'll give you four fandoms. You then have to make an entry writing about your favorite character from each fandom, and why.

And proceeded to hand me the following four:

Utena

Oh sure, give me something easy to start with, why don't you. ;P

Man.

So, after going, "well, clearly it's - but no, what about - er, and also - oh, damn" for about twenty minutes (no lie, kids, this is what study time is for!), my final answer is I can't choose! probably Utena herself. In the past, and possibly even on a different day, this could also have been Juri, Anthy, or Miki.

NOTE! In the movie version, I'd probably switch this to Anthy. I can't speak to the manga, but probably Miki not at all influenced because apparently they're all Straighty McStraightertons. And musical (N.B. the first one, apparently we're up to three)... Touga. (Or maybe ChuChu. The terrifying god rat.)

Also, J. A. Seazer isn't a character. (...I guess the music might well be considered its own character.)

...anyway!

So, why Utena.

Actually, my answer to that is kind of spoilery.

Well, let's put it in the least spoilery yet most honest way: she shoves Akio in the face and keeps on. Do you need much more reason than that?


WeiB Kreuz

Slutface McGee Youji. XD Reason? I pretty much worshipped Miki Shinichiro when I was in high school. (Seriously. I watched Initial D solely for this reason.) Also he is pretty pretty. Wavy hair just DOES things to me, okay? Blame Sailor Neptune for my formative years.

Firefly

Another one where I'm all, damnit kids! When I was your age there were one or maybe two good characters to a show, and we LIKED it that way!

...no, really, probably Inara. See also I have this thing for people with curls and wavy hair! And also she snarks Mal. And also courtesans. And also "TRAP!" (I know, it was Mal's line, whatever you guys).

But also Kaylee. And Wash. And Jayne. And Zoe. And Simon. And Book. Aaaaaand uh everyone except River. River's definitely last. But she's still on the list. You know how it is.

Yami no Matsuei

Oh man, it's been so long since I watched this that I actually have to look up his name. (Despite the aforementioned Miki Shinichiro worship, it's not actually Tsuzuki, although I do love Tsuzuki.)

It's probably Tatsumi, actually. He's just so cheerfully mean to Tsuzuki XD Watari's up there too. (I should probably read the manga at some point. Hm. *notes it down for her week off*)

BONUS FREEBIE

Hetalia


Just look at the icon.

(I feel somehow like I should feel guilty for that. OH WELL *G*)

ETA: Ahahaha. It's even better if you imagine it with Hetalia characters. "Finally, the trains are running on time. LIFE IS BEAUTIFUL :) :)"

ZOMG
