Wow, it’s been such a long time since I’ve done a man crush monday post.
As you know, my dearest friend and fellow blogger Mel, wrote about Megane Day in a special post you can find here. And, since it’s on a Monday, what the heck, why not participate.
Just a quick apology here: I’ve not been active on here much, and I’ll probably do an update soon about what I’ve been up to, but hey, lets get on with the celebration of Megane Day!
So far this year, I’ve had three favorite megane’s. I’m sure one will come as no surprise, but the other two are from series that I’ve recently completed.
Tenya Iida, My Hero Academia
Yeah, seriously no surprise. My Hero Academia has quickly become a beloved series of mine. The entire class is full of lovable characters, and Tenya is especially one of them.
The class rep is known to be a stickler for the rules, but heck yenno, he’s really great at rounding the class up and leading them when they need some guidance. So much so, he can almost be selfless, opting to get tagged in the provisional license exam in order for his classmates (like Aoyama) to pass.
Off the bat, I wasn’t too fond of Tenya, to be honest. Especially when he was so eager to write Izuku off so quickly in the beginning of the series. But, he realized his mistake and eventually becomes one of Izuku’s best friends, and often follows Izuku’s lead but also keeps him in check. They have a great camaraderie.
Hirotaka Nifuji, Wotakoi
Hirotaka is me. He’s all of us. Hirotaka is from Wotakoi: Love is Hard for an Otaku. And while he’s a stoic monotone personality, there was just so much of him that was relatable.
If you’ve seen the series, you’ll see he’s a gamer otaku. Always on a handheld console, at any free time he gets. And I get it. I get you Hirotaka, because I am you.
I laughed so hard when he was gaming at lunch at work, and his supervisor says, “Are you seriously playing a game at work?” and his response is to look at the clock and says, “but it’s lunch time.” It made me laugh because, I’ve been him. When Collar x Malice came out on PSP, you can get your a** I was on my PSVita any chance I got, and yes, that included my lunch break at work. I would eat and play the game.
He was an endearing character on Wotakoi, which was easily one of my favorites if not the only RomCom I’ve watching this year so far.
I realize this is an older series, but I happened to watch it this year. And once I started Hamatora, I couldn’t stop watching it. I rather enjoyed it, and I’m still in the midst of starting season 2.
Murasaki was probably my favorite of the series, and that might be because he’s more pragmatic of the two main minimum holders of the series. I also found him to be one of the prettier boys of the series. It’s funny that I would include him, just because his minimum is only activated when he takes OFF his glasses.
That wraps up this week/years Megane Day!
