So far… everyone in this anime is perfect and that pisses me off
I need someone to hate idk why
I don’t know what it is, but everyone is… unique. And that is VERY hard to see in animes these days. I think Free! is another good example (why are sports animes dominating the anime genres like srsly why are they so good) but I’m only 2 eps in and so far I like watching everyone on screen
Like for example, dude up front here…
You see it in a few things where either the villain, anti-hero, or the rival, is generally a tough guy. It could be with fighting or magic. In this case its sports. He either never smiles or always smiles (grins or smirks, actually). He either barely talks or doesn’t shut up. But they always tend to underestimate the hero either by the end, and there’s a big epic showdown where the hero wins, or at the beginning, and instead, the villain/anti-hero/rival, becomes obsessed with defeating the only person worthy enough to take him on and pose a challenge in the end.
So there’s this guy, he’s the rival, quiet, never smiles, and is pretty much up his own ass. Really cocky. The best of the best.
He comes across as tall and intimidating.
But then you realise, he’s only in junior high! Next ep is when he’s in highschool, he’s actually the baby of the school, and he’s taken down a notch by his senpai’s. It’s so much more realistic.
You cant act all cool and composed and be the type of guy who can walk away like a badass in real life. IT DOESN’T HAPPEN. This guy is that type. Ya know, I could actually see this badass falling.
He breaks the stereotype. I fucking love it.
Look at him blushing. He’s annoyed that he’s not in charge of the situation and that pleases me immensely.
Ah I love realism. 2014 is super cool.
(Not to mention mister hero in the background actually just asked mr. cool here if he was an idiot or something and THAT’S why the guy is blushing. Since WHEN does the cool guy get called an idiot by the happy go lucky hero? Never.)
