Last week, I shared my top five female anime characters as a special post for International Women's Day. However, I didn't think it'd be fair if I didn't do one for the men in anime that we all love, so here we are. It's time for my top 5 male anime characters! Now, if I thought to compile the last list was hard, this one is on another level. Having been a fan of anime for seven years now, it's safe to say that I've seen plenty of boys - good and bad - meaning that there were quite a few contenders for this list!
I have no issue with anime being used as a medium to advertise something. I see why they do it - anime has been known to appeal to all demographics. So what happens when I look at how oolong tea, Sanrio and Donald Trump are being presented?
This show was completely a show after my own heart. Sanrio characters, cute boys... Perfect combination in my eyes. But also the story of them feeling uncomfortable and anxious about other students around them finding out that they liked Sanrio characters really touched home.
I know, I need to finish 2017's anime first. But that's not realistically going to happen. I'll get through them at my own pace - a quicker pace than usual due to me picking out less seasonal anime than I have been doing in previous editions of this. (See, I'm sticking to my blogging resolutions already!)
