I was kind of at a loss of what to put (aside the ABOUT ME crap) but I finally decided on my TOP BL-RELATED THINGS. Damn, that was NO easy task. I could’ve gone up my Top 100 crap but that’d take too long so I decided on a mere 20. My Top 20 wasn’t in any particular order either. I tried, of course, to put some priority of my real favs but some are really just scattered.
Anyways! Onto it!
1. Matt (Mail Jeevas) from Death Note
I love Matt. I loved him even before I actually saw him in Death Note. Fucked, I know. But it’s true. Don’t get me wrong, I love Mello, Near and L all the same but Matt definitely takes the cake. He’s also one of the only characters I prefer in both Seme and Uke roles. Either way, I really don’t mind.
Everything about Matt is just yummy. His looks. His goggles. His hair. His clothes. His personality. His gaming obsession. His manner of talking and his damn cigs. Matt, I don’t care if you’re 3rd at Whammy’s you’re NUMBER ONE in my book! <3
2. Lulu (Lelouch Lamperouge) from CODE GEASS
Lelouch vi Britannia, the exiled prince, the genius who wants to change the world to create a better world for his sister, Nunnally. Admirable? Very. How can a girl not understand the appeal that is Lelouch? He’s extremely smart, he’s attractive and a bit a naive when it comes to ‘other’ things. He isn’t at all the stoic type and is actually quite sentimental. Dude, he cares. If he didn’t why would he sacrifice his own sanity for his sister? And, unlike another certain geninus *points at Raito* Lulu has and accepts his faults. Honestly, Lulu’s little faults can make him extremely cute. This side of him isn’t much explored in the anime but you can notice it in the Sound Stories and Picture Books.
3. Usagi x Misaki from Junjo Romantica
a.k.a Usami Akihiko and Takahashi Misaki from the manga/BLCD (and soon anime) Junjo Romantica! These two are my all-time favorite couple. With good reason! Let’s start with the Seme, Usagi-sensei. At first glance looks like your typical cool, rich, composed seme but really he’s more than that. For one, he has the STRANGEST hobbies … namely collecting toys (that pile up in his crazy room). Like all semes of Usa-sensei’s type, he is pretty protective of his Uke, Misaki and tends to harass him more than is healthy. Har har. Misaki, voiced by my fav. seiyuu Sakurai-sama, is one of the best ukes I’ve ever known. It’s impossible NOT to enjoy his sudden epiphanies. Man do I love his thought pattern. Misaki has a pretty tsundere character and shies away a lot. In the 7 Junjo Romantica CDs I have listened to, I have yet to hear Misaki say “Suki!” to Usami. Sure, he comes REAL close to it in the 7th CD but he still doesn’t say it. The event itself moved the poor uke to tears.
4. Sakurai Takahiro-sama (seiyuu)
He’s probably my most favorite seiyuu out there. The first I heard his voice was either in his role as Cloud or in his role a Guiche (Zero no Tsukaima). Actually, I only JUST learned that Guiche was done by Sakupyon. I NEVER KNEW! When I watched Znt I didn’t know anything ’bout Seiyuus so … I never realized. Moving on, the role that made me into a big fan of his was probably Misaki from Junjo Romantica. Somehow, I didn’t realize it was the same voice he used for Yuuri in KKM! Hell, I only realized AFTER listening to Misaki and because of that … I started liking Yuuri too! I didn’t like Yuuri at first, that’s why. Sakurai is also one of the seiyuus I like in both Seme and Uke roles.
I didn’t write in Suzumaru Kenichi in my TOP LIST but I really wanted to. I especially love any and ALL interaction betwen SuzuKen and Sakupyon (Only the Ring Finger Knows, Oi! Tanaka-kun, …) the two just fit each other so well. And damn do I enjoy freetalks they have together! The Oi! Tanaka-kun freetalk CD in particular!
I also absolutely LOVE his singing voice! My fav songs of him being “DAY BREAK” “Eien no Ai wa Kizamareru” “I Wish” and “Taiyou to Tsuki o Daite” …
5. Oi! Tanaka-kun series (BLCD)
Tadan~~ SemexSeme … Seme ekuaru tsukkomi dakara Oi! That was SuzuKen quote from the Freetalk CD of the first Drama ~Juuban Shoubu~ Apparently they wanted to make a semexseme drama and since Seme=Tsukkomi that makes Oi! You probably don’t get the joke but that’s alright.
Tanaka-kun is definitely my favorite series out there. The drama just left a really huge impression on me. I believe I wrote I review of it somewhere in this fucked blog so I won’t repeat what I liked about it.
6. Kamiya Hiroshi (Seiyuu)
ZETSUBO SHITAA!! Omae … kiken na sonzai da … Recognize the lines? Prolly not and you prolly don’t care BUT I’ll say it anyway. The first is Itoshiki-sensei’s signature line (Sayonnara Zetsubo Sensei) and the second a line Tieria Erde (Gundam 00) tells Set-chan. Anyways, Kamiyan is my top seiyuu … prolly equal to Sakupyon or just slightly behind. His aegi koe and nose-bleed material moans in Shinayakana Netsujo put him on my radar and damn … the dot it never leaving. I have yet to listen to any of his seme roles so I can’t review on that but I have to say his uke voice is just WAAAH! I love the guy. Really.
7. Fukuyama Jun (seiyuu)
ANOTHER SEIYUU! Waaaai ~ FukuJun! I’ve loved the guy since his CODE GEASS role as Lulu! But strangely enough, what put him on the map for me was his Natsu role in Wagamama Dakedo Itoshikute. Meaning, the fact that his voice had such a range surprised me. A good kind of surprise tho! He is also a seiyuu I don’t mind in both seme and uke roles but I honestly prefer his uke roles. He has a damn cute voice!
8. DEADLOCK (BLCD)
I already wrote about how beautiful this drama is. I won’t start again. Yuutan-sama 4tw! Cheers to more DEADLOCK later this month! Check my previous posts for all about DEADLOCK! (Yeah I’m getting tired)
9. Shimono Hiro (Seiyuu)
(picture to come, I’m still looking)
-glomps- Shimono-san is special because I’ve loved him since the FIRST role I heard him in. In other words, since I listened to Bitter Valentine. His totally kawaii moaning did it in for me. I can’t RESIST his type of voice. As long as I don’t listen to too much of him at once, I’ll never start hating him. Besides, he has the CUTEST laugh I’ve ever heard (from Honey Special Disk)! He’s just really adorable. A definite uke! But it was fun to hear him seme someone in Love Neko (which I’ll talk about later on)! -glomps again- He wins the “cutest voice” award. His role in Wagamama and Honey are my favorites!
10. Only the Ring Finger knows
The first ever BL manga I bought. Y’see, there’s a lack of places in Montreal where you can buy actual Yaoi manga (I know of one but I’ve never actually went myself). Anyways, I say Manga because I haven’t read the novels yet … but I did listen to the Dramas! Wataru and Kazuki are just … so adorable together! Their relationship is so utterly NORMAL that you feel you can really relate to them. Ring Finger is like a normal romance shojo manga … the only difference is that their both guys! There isn’t much of the typical YAOI stereotypes in Ring Finger and I’m guessing that’s why its so popular. Angst, which is like signature to Yaoi, is like … non-existent in Ring Finger. No rape, no abusive parents or anything. Just the norm. Really, the fact that Ring Finger is so damn ordinary is what takes it apart. SakuxSuzu for Kazuki and Wataru also adds to how much I love this series!
And to end the first part of my TOP BL-RELATED CRAP! Here’s some KazukixWataru fanservice.
