Dragon Slayer: Natsu Dragneel

Good afternoon Ladies and Gents! It’s that time of the week! I’m here with another Man Crush Monday! This week’s feature is a leading Pink Haired Male. I don’t know many characters with Pink Hair that are guys, except one that fits the bill. He hails from the town of Magnolia on the anime Fairy Tail. That’s right! I’m talk about none other than: Natsu Dragneel.

Natsu is a Dragon Slayer, a person that uses Dragon Slayer Magic. Natsu has the magic of fire that was taught to him by a dragon named Igneel, whom he claims is his Father. One day Igneel, and other dragons disappear from the world, and it becomes Natsu’s lifelong mission to find out where his Father has disappeared to. Okay, so Natsu is your typical shounen character; loud, too energetic, and can be borderline annoying. But, he still has a number of admirable traits about him.

30 DAY ANIME CHALLENGE | 29

A lot of the anime that I’ve written about in this challenge don’t exactly have the ideal environment.  You have a dystopian tokyo (psycho-pass), a western sci-fi wasteland (trigun), a world where mages are bent on killing one another (fate/stay night) and a world where frightening titans threaten your daily life (Attack on Titan). So where does that leave me?

I don’t think I’ve watched an anime where I was like oh my gosh I wish that was real! But I think I’m going to have to go with my staple of this challenge, Fairy Tail. I’m a sucker for fantasy, especially when it involves magic and dragons. I wouldn’t mind living int he city of Magnolia alongside the Fairy Tail Guild, as long as they’re not destroying any parts of the city. As far as the world goes, it would be neat to have some magical powers. I personally would enjoy the abilities that Erza has. Being able to change outfits in the blink of an eye or have objects materialize from your invisible storage. Or maybe even Gray’s Ice Make Magic or Natsu’s flames. However, I’d be afraid of Acnologia flying around threatening to destory everything.

And that’s all I can say about this prompt today! On to the last post! Till tomorrow!

30 DAY ANIME CHALLENGE | 15

Hmmm…..Hmmm… I think I’m going to have to go back to Fairy Tail  and pick Happy for this one.

Happy is a blue cat , I mean “exceed”, with a white stomach that carries around a green backpack which is often filled with food or other random items. He’s often seen with Natsu and is both his sidekick and BFF. Happy is the epitome of his name.  He may be useless in battle, but he’s lovable, loyal, cute and always there to cheer you up with a smile and his catchphrase, “Aye!”

Aside from that Happy has wings! I’d love to have cat I could have casual conversations with and run amok with and he can get me out of a jam by flying us out whenever anything gets to hairy. But don’t call him a “mode of transportation”, that would only offend Natsu. Natsu, like the other dragon slayers, has a severe case of motion sickness. However, he was called out by Lucy when it was apparent that Natsu doesn’t get sick when Happy carries him around much like a mode of transportation. Natsu can’t believe Lucy would acknowledge Happy as a “mode of transportation” because Happy is his dearest friend.

One of my favorite scenes of Happy is when Natsu and the guild hatch Happy from an egg. Natsu thought he was taking care of a dragon’s egg; but much to his surprise was given a cat. This episode also gives more background story to Natsu – which is never a bad thing.

That’s who I would pick for my animal sidekick. Who’s your favorite?
