Favorite character.. but WHY?
« on: April 18, 2006, 08:43:44 AM »
*kicks forum* We still only have one topic in here!

WHY are your favorite characters your favorites?

Is it just becaues they're cute and amusing or is it something deeper?  Just how long is your list of reasons why you love a particular character?

I really like what Eagle told Hikaru towards the end of the anime: That if she knew exactly why she loved Lantis, then it wouldn't be true love.  That's kinda how I feel about one's absolute favorite character.  Of course there's the things like He's adorable or She's funny, but why are they so important to you?  Or are they?

I dunno, Fuu is ridiculously important to me. 

Of course, she's adorable, she's so modestly beautiful, she's got an adorably morbid sense of humor and she's ditzy but you'd never say she's 'a blonde' in that sense.  She has a soft, lovely voice and her habitually high-registered manner of speaking really grows on you (unless it annoys you to death ;D).  Her mashin is awesome.  Her final armor is really, really beautiful.

But why she's my absolute favorite?  I can't put my finger on it.  I think this cap somehow displays almost all of the reasons that I love her.  Her eyes, they are amazing.  Her smile is soft and charming.  She's strong in a way that's different from most female characters- she's reserved, quietly thoughtful and bashful and yet she'd be a strong young woman even without a sword. 

Like I said... I can list a million things I like about her, but I can't really explain why I love her so.
A year ago, I wasn't sure if Fuu was still my favorite character ever (that is, from anything) but since she fell back into my lap the moment I got back into my MKR fandom, I think I never stopped loving her. :P 

Oh, my favorite is when someone IM'd me way back in the day and asked me if I liked Fuu.  Yeah, like that.  No... I don't. o_O;  It's platonic, fraternal, etc.  Isn't that a scream?  I'll take an order of Ferio for the evening instead, thanks.  Really, I heart Fuu as much as I can being straight. Lmao.

Hey!  Don't kick my forum!  :P

This section does need some love, though.

Umi is my all time favorite character of Rayearth. Why?  Truthfully, I don't know. I do know that I identify with her personalliy and understand her fears and uncertainties better than any of the other characters.  I never saw her as the snobby person that some people portray her as. She is a very deep character whose greatest fear is to be alone.  Haven't we all felt that one.

And that is about all I can think of to say right now.  ^.~

I favor characters with a lot of depth...and he has a lot of inherent contradictions that are fun to play with in fanfiction...

Yeah, Sci is a geek.

Umi no duh! Lol... Well I also like Clef and eagle to XP.... Hikaru's cool to... ...... Actually.... I like all of them!!!! XD... The reason is because rayearth schrachters are just so much fun to play with. And the story never had a very good definent ending so there is more room for others to use their imagination.

The first few episodes I saw, I emediately feel in love with Clef. He was charismatic, in a way totally of his own. Not to mention debonaire style and looks, yet wraped in his 'child like' body he was intriquingly old. At the time, and now even I felt akin to this description of young, almost childish "appearance" while being older than one looked. Being short statured all my life, and young looking I was quite tired of not being taken seriously given certain situations especially those involving age restrictions. >.> I have never carried a fake license in my life. Why would I need to when I was 22? NO Im not 16. The worst was when a woman thought I was 12 and visiting my 'sister' in my all female dorm, at the time I was 21 and coming back from taking out the trash. Now that Im 24 (woot, I just had a bday!), I still feel that connection with Clef. And actually in the first few eps I hated Umi and LOVED Hikaru. But Umi grew on me so much shes now my second favorite Character where as Hikaru is right beside Geo in the almost to last category. -_-

Im long winded. Please forgive me.

Since Suza kinda named most of my reasons for lovin' Fuu, I might as well focus on another character I love dearly. =D

TATRA. One of the twin sister princesses of Chizeta. Yes. I love Tatra. Why? Well, aside from the fact that I'm going to be voicing her in a radioplay, I love Tatra because she's cute, bubbly, ditzy, and she knows how and when to take action, all in one brain, body, and personality. =D She's the elder sister, though she often doesn't act like it; however, when she needs to, she CAN and WILL take responsibility. That's one of the many things I admire about her. She seems not to lose sight of her childish side, all the while maintaining the adult side of her. ^^ Not to mention, she's pretty. =D

Well, most of you may know now that  my favourite is indeed the character by the name Hikaru Shidou.

Interestingly enough, I found MKR through Hikaru, well, technically. I actually found it through Angelic Layer. I had watched Angelic Layer all in one go, and I really loved the doll "Hikaru" and I thought it was a shame she was a doll and not a human. So, one day I wikied Angelic Layer for no reason, and I found out that the Hikaru from Angelic Layer is connected to a certain Hikaru Shidou. Excited, I started immediately watching MKR, and now...here I am.

Hikaru-chan is quite the character. I love her to death. Now I know some of you say she doesn't have enough character depth, but for me I can see her personality clearly. I had also read the manga recently, which sort of wrapped up my love for her even more. She's got many qualities that I'm always striving for; the self-discipline, the lack of selfishness, and the powerful ability to believe in yourself and others.

Now, I'm kinda running out of time to write this since it's 9:50 pm and I'm still not done my homework (oops), but I can finish this post up later.
