Characters in Anime/Manga, why do we love them?

Whenever I find a story I enjoy, it’s often because of one of the characters. One I find similar to myself and so on. And I started to wonder why I get to hooked up in some characters. My top 3 favorites are probably Lawliet (L) from Death Note, And I guess this is because he is epic. There’s no one like him.

I like Gaara of the Sand from Naruto just as well, mostly because of his epic powers, and his past. He is a very sad person and the one thing he don’t have is love. (that’s why he bears the sign “Ai” in his face. “Ai” means Love in Japanese.)

And the last one is…. hm… Ichigo from bleach. Only because his eyes becomes silver when he’s mad and he’s good looking. I love his hair.
I had a thing for Sasuke from Naruto a while, but then he became so F*** overpower and evil, and overwhelmingly stupid, and gay, after he ran of with Orochimaru. ( I don’t say it’s wrong to be gay. Actually, I think gay is cute, and that people should fall in love with whoever they want because love is unpredictable.)

I guess I get so hooked up in different characters because I really wish the story were true. And because they are epic. ^w^




I’ve discovered another new Manga from the creator of the hit series “Angel Sanctuary!” It’s called Godchild. Deep in the 19th century of London, a young nobleman named Cain walks the shadowy cobblestone streets of the aristocratic society into which he was born. Forced to become en earl upon the untimely death of his father, Cain assumes the role of head of the Hargreaves, a noble family with a dark, bloody past. With Riff, his faithful manservant, and Mary Weather, his 10-year-old half sister, Cain investigates the mysterious crimes that seems to follow him wherever he goes. This Manga is a collection of four small stories who tells the story about the Hargeaves family, and Cain’s dark past. I recommend this to Gothic fans! You really shouldn’t miss this one!

A bit about the persons in the story:

CAIN – a 17-year old nobleman. He’s surrounded by mysteriousness and beauty. He is the handsome, intelligent man who make a woman heart melt.

MARY WEATHER- is Cains half sister, She is only 10- years old, but even at this age does her beauty turn heads.

RIFF – Cains faithful manservant. There’s a strange bond between him and Cain… I kinda always expect some yaoi between them, but it never happens… (yet)

DOCTOR – Cain’s half brother. He despises Cain, and wants to rip out Cains eyes to add to his collection.
