Does February 14th ring any bells? Of course it does! Everybody knows it’s Valentine’s Day and for single people like me, it’s a day for sharing chocolate with friends and spending time with loved ones (doesn’t necessarily have to be romantic partner right? Especially if you don’t have one ^^;) But as a fangirl, it’s my day to shower the boys who have grazed my fangirl life with some lovin’! Behold, these boyfriend materials!
Most Chivalrous: Son Hak (Akatsuki no Yona)
Is there any categories more fitting than this?! I kid you not! A super loyal companion who would sacrifice anything for you and protect you at all costs? It’s not like us girls need saving all the time but it’s nice to have someone dependable to watch your back right? I need Hak to be real!
Most Cinnamon Roll Too Pure For This World: Mamura Daiki (Hirunaka no Ryuusei)
I swear, Mamura is just THE sweetest guy that has ever existed in this animanga planet. He seems like a calm and cool guy from afar, but he’s actually sooooo shy with girls. Once he’s close to you though, I bet that he will do anything to grant you happiness. I can’t help but to melt while intensely shipping him and Yosano. Definitely one of my favorite OTPs <33 Ah… now where’s my Mamura?
Best Cook: Shinomiya Kojirou (Shokugeki no Souma)
I tried to come up with a more specific category because well, every single character in Shokugeki no Souma universe is way more gifted than me in the kitchen. Man, I’m certainly not lying when I say that I’m shitty at culinary department — which is why I’ve always appreciated male characters who can cook. Shinomiya will totally make you experience foodgasm with every single food he cooks. AND MEGANE. MY BEAUTIFUL MEGANE BOY. (His looks do help a lot as well! xD Ignore me, deep down I’m just a girl who likes to fangirl about her 2D boys lol.)
Sexiest Intelligence: Kougami Shinya (Psycho Pass)
Brain is the real deal, peeps! Smart IS the new kind of sexy. Other than his superb physique and impeccable fighting techniques, Kougami has impressive analytical skills. Best of all, he’s also a bookworm like the rest of us here, with a taste for thought-provoking reads ranging from Stephen King to Ernest Hemingway.
Most Athletic: Aomine Daiki (Kuroko no Basket)
The ace of Generation of Miracles from popular series Kuroko no Basket is certainly no one’s match when it comes to athleticism. His play style is similar to US street basketball, which is uncommon in Japanese high school basketball. Seeing his matches definitely lit up a fire in me — meaning it’s always exciting to see what he’s gonna do next. He is dense and admittedly the kind of guy who’s all muscle buuuuut he can be wise at critical times and when he’s become more optimistic with basketball, his passion for the things he loves knows no boundaries. Plus, I have a soft spot for tan boys! Doesn’t he look hot?? <33 #sorrynotsorry
Phew, this might be the toughest category of all! I mean, I have a bunch of sports anime boys I’d like to include so choosing only one is hard!
KIDDING. HOW CAN I ONLY CHOOSE ONE?
Most Charismatic Leader: Oikawa Tooru (Haikyuu!!)
Oikawa can be pretty silly at times but when he’s on the court, he has a completely different aura. An extremely hard-working individual, he puts tons of effort in order to reach his current levels. But the thing that makes him stand out from other sports anime characters is his incredible leadership abilities. He is not a dictator — unlike Akashi Seijuurou post-Teiko pre-Winter-Cup-final. He knows a lot about his teammates’ habits and preferences and how to motivate them to perform to their fullest. I HAVE A LOT OF FEELS FOR THIS BOY ASDASFADSGSGJHS.
Master Strategist: Miyuki Kazuya (Daiya no Ace)
First, megane. Second, MEGANE. Third, MEGANE. Do I need any other reason? Haha. But seriously, as a catcher, Miyuki knows how to lead with his plays and make aggressive game calls. He knows how to make a pitcher feel comfortable and trust him with their utmost. As a captain, he may not be as charismatic as Oikawa but Miyuki has no less sense of responsibility. He isn’t the type to grieve over loss. Instead, he has a huge desire to keep moving forward by finding all the stuff they need to fix in order to win next time. As a boy, he is a COMPLETE DORK and the BIGGEST TROLL. You will never get bored with his antiques and teasings xD
Most Noble Gentleman: Akashi Seijuurou (Kuroko no Basket)
I JUST HAVE TO INCLUDE HIM OKAY? Pre-Teiko and post-defeat Akashi — the real Akashi — is actually the kindest person to ever exist and if you’ve seen the latest OVA (75.5Q) you will see how much of a gentleman he is to Momoi. I actually think that he could belong in a shoujo manga as a typical prince-like male love interest if it weren’t for his second personality. You know what I mean haha.
There’s still a bunch of other male characters that I love to fangirl over but those are my top picks. Until the right guy comes to my life, I guess I will keep my 2D boys for myself.
