Thanks for making the new thread, I couldn't decide on what questions to start with.

>Does he have any gap moe traits or hobbies?
He looks like a flashy, reckless daredevil type, but he's actually very cautious, almost neurotically so, and always tries to plan ahead. Plus, he tries to give off an air of unflappable confidence, but he's pretty insecure and lets people get under his skin easily.
God, he's so moe.
>What's his place in his source material, how does he affect the plot and the other characters?
He's the guy who pretends to be the guy who's an (in)famous gambler (Akagi, of course). Minor antagonist who gets taken down by a supposedly harmless, goofy character. Akagi acts as a foil and picks apart the issues in his worldview, much to his displeasure.
His murder sets the story's longest arc in motion.
>Does he have any close friends? If he does, what is their friendship like and how do they treat eachother?
They don't show any of his relationships outside of his job, it's a shame. I want to see him in casual situations like that, see what kind of people he usually gravitates towards.
(My "do you draw your husbando" picture last thread was pretty silly and sloppy, so I'm posting a better one, forgive me.)

Does he have any official material outside of the main story? Spinoffs, pachislots, events, anything you want to talk about. How do you like them? How do you like his portrayal in them?

>Does he have any gap moe traits or hobbies?
He loves cats, just like me!
>What's his place in his source material, how does he effect the plot and the other characters?
He's the protagonist of a game and its remake. I prefer the original as well as his characterization in the original, but he wasn't hurt in the remake like it felt like the rest of the game was. He wasn't characterized poorly, just differently.
>Does he have any close friends? If he does, what is their friendship like and how do they treat eachother?
He grew up in a village with a few others, and ends up leading an army consisting of many, all of which could be considered his friends
>>
>Does he have any gap moe traits or hobbies?
He;s interested in fashion and looking stylish

>What's his place in his source material, how does he effect the plot and the other characters?
He's the main JoJo in part 4 of JJBA, he pretty much starts the plot because he's the illegitimate son of Joseph (main Jojo of part 2).

>Does he have any close friends? If he does, what is their friendship like and how do they treat each other?
His best friends Okuyasu and Koichi, they treat each other like family or brothers, always looking out for each other especially during battle.

[spoiler]I like Josuke because he's nice, he can be shown to be greedy and a little bit conniving (Shigechi and the 5 million yen) but he's a good person, and it's shown in his stand which is a physical manifestation of someone's fighting spirit or life energy, and Josuke's stand can heal anyone and repair anything except for himself, which shows how he's a selfless person. In his first meeting with Jotaro (his nephew) Josuke apologizes because he inadvertently caused a small crisis in the Joestar family regarding Joseph and how his fortune would be split.[/spoiler]

I just really like him

>Does he have any gap moe traits or hobbies?
Oh yes, gap moe defines his hobbies. He enjoys hedge-trimming/gardening, which is a cute and peaceful hobby for a character with so much angst and raw power. I like to think that it calms him down.
He is scary and dark, until his mask is removed. He has social anxiety, so it's akin to a security blanket. His biggest gap moe trait.

>What's his place in his source material, how does he effect the plot and the other characters?
He is one of 10 extremely powerful warriors who protect his world called the Eternals. Each one specializes in a weapon type and his is Melee weapons (claws).
He comes off as cold to some in his group since he's a loner. MC and his friends try to pull him out of his shell sometimes.

>Does he have any close friends? If he does, what is their friendship like and how do they treat eachother?
There is an unnamed adventurer who approached Six when he was at his lowest, after having gone on a rampage and killing his clan. It's hinted that the skyfarer was the MC's missing father who was the closest friend he has in canon, like a stand-in father or brother figure.
I like to think that he also considers MC a friend, since Six states that he reminds him of the mysterious skyfarer.

>>3275127
I really like your drawing!
>Does he have any official material outside of the main story? Spinoffs, pachislots, events, anything you want to talk about. How do you like them? How do you like his portrayal in them?
Not sure if it counts since this is still in-game, but Granblue has mini event stories that are separate from the main story. My favorite one featuring Six is a tournament event, where he's asked by the leader of the Eternals to infiltrate it as a fighting contestant, since Six has a 'flawless work ethic'.
(damn 4chan character limit)

Ignore this if this has been asked/answered already in a previous thread but I have a question for everyone too.
Do you celebrate or do anything special on his birthday?

There's a spinoff manga called MiniVan. I love it, Quily usually draws him being very, very expressive (and also draws his ahoge being expressive) and it's both fun and cute as hell. His art style itself is already damn cute. A new volume each year is one of my favorite things, I can't read Nip but I still buy every volume and try to translate my favorite parts. And admire how adorable Aichi is.
One of the things I love is how Quily draws Aichi in different casual outfits, he doesn't have much outfit variety in the anime or main manga.

>>3275223
I normally buy some cake and make tea, since it's something he canonically enjoys. I've wanted to actually make a cake myself for him these three years but every time I end up buying a cake instead. I hope he would forgive me.
In my defense my kitchen is tiny and trying to bake there wouldn't be very enjoyable.

He loves sweets to infinity, just like me.

>What's his place in his source material, how does he effect the plot and the other characters?
At firstly he's that sugary sweet boy, nobody can say no to him. But later you find out that he's working for the bad guys who are soldiers and fight against the XYZ Dimension. He switched the sides and let his new friends alone and betrayed them. Later in the show, he rescued one of his friends and realized that it is totally bullshit to serve the academia anymore and said, it is the first time he ever had friends and he want to protect them. So he's a good boy now.

>Does he have any close friends? If he does, what is their friendship like and how do they treat eachother?

He has 2 really close friends, Yuzu and Yuya. At first Yuya was really annoyed because Sora followed him everywhere, to learn how to pendulum summon. Later Sora teaches Yuzu how to Fusion summon, because she wanted to be stronger to protect them all. There was a Time where Sora betrayed his best and only friends, but came back to them, when Yuzu talked to him, that he is one of her closest friends. Yeah so now there are a cute little bunch together who cheering them up one another.

Yes, I bake for all events but I try to do something extra special for his bday since I get the feeling he never really got a chance to have a nice cake or presents; not that he'd care, but I want to make him feel appreciated and loved in that way too. Pic related for this year my.mixtape.moe/edofib.jpg
>>3275127
>does he have any official material
There's several spin off games, a few drama cds, a stage play, and a movie/manga adaptation. I actually love all of them, as they give a much better look at the depth of his character than is portrayed in the vanilla game. Pq tends to make him a little more no fun allowed, but overall they generally give him a lot of credit. I found a rare drama CD a few years ago and it's one of the best pieces of material for his character since it takes place before the incident, and he's much more lighthearted and prone to smiling/laughing. He proposes to go to the beach and seems pretty excited to share time with his friends outside of fighting. I try to take him out to the beach at least once a year because of this.
>>3275066
>does he have any gap moe
He's a king of gap moe really; very intimidating and straighforward but a softie underneath. He's the type to call someone an idiot while helping them out and begrudgingly agree to shenanigans if pressed.
>what's his place in his source material
He's called a plot device but he really doesn't affect the main plot so much as the characters involved. He's a mysterious character who joins the main character and dies to save another, and his death is the catalyst for change in several members of the team; and in the final battle you can hear him give support to the main character from the sea of souls. (Where all sentient beings go for reincarnation after death in the SMT universe)

>Does he have any gap moe traits or hobbies?
I noticed hes one of the older husbands so a gap moe trait is he can be immature at times
>What's his place in his source material, how does he effect the plot and the other characters?
Hes the main character so his decisions affect the outcome of the plot also if the reaches out and talks to other characters and help them overcome their problems he can save them
>>Does he have any close friends? If he does, what is their friendship like and how do they treat each other?
Yes he has a group of friends he hangs out with and they take a prominent role in game
They like joke around alot but seem to want the best for Vincent but they don't all agree on what that is

>>3275223
>Do you celebrate or do anything special on his birthday?

It been a few years but I'm holding out for Catherine Full Body its a re-release with extras

>gap moe traits
Getting super flustered when someone is genuinely kind to him, putting on the lone wolf face but actually being clingy in private, dressing up as Eve and being cute while at it, flowers in his hair and make up and all.

>how does he affect the plot
He's one of the MCs. As far as story structure is concerned, his own arc serves to provide background on the recent history and nature of No. 6. It's also triggers the main plot. Everything starts with 12yo him running away after being shot, which tells you right off the bat that you're diving into a dystopia. He escapes into the city during a storm where he meets a 12yo Shion who patches him up. The latter's life is completely thrown off course, as he goes from successful future scientist and city elite to dissident aiding a fugitive.
Some years later, Nezumi returns to pay his debt and further messes up the city's plans when they try to arrest Shion, deeming him a criminal as an excuse to experiment on that special brain of his.

He kinda does. He shows up in Fire Emblem Heroes, but like everyone else in that game, his personality is very neutered. Not a fan.
>>
cont. >>3275372

>other characters
As said, his arrival sort of wrecks Shion's life. Nezumi is both a bane and a blessing for him. On the one hand, he causes him to lose everything he had. On the other, it's an awakening experience that changes him to the core.
Despite having his own endgame, he becomes a catalyst for Shion, which isn't necessarily good, as others get hurt or killed in the process.

Moving on, he's partly to blame for Safu's rejection, then directly responsible for - oh, well, spoilers.

Then there's the dog keeper, a younger kid he clashes with throughout the story. Their interactions serve to reveal a lot about Nezumi, as well as contribute to worldbuilding. Regardless if they're stealing from one another, being shitty or just downright murderous, dog keeper too ends up changed by the whole experience, even if a little.

>close friends
Shion is the only person to get that close to him and he's arguably more of partner than a friend. The chemistry between them is pretty awesome though, full of sarcastic banter and charm. There's clumsy intimacy as well as fights.

I'll just drop a link to a short story from Beyond, it's a fair sample both of that interaction and Nezumi himself http://9th-ave.blogspot.com/2013/02/novel-no-6-beyond-ch-4-a.html (if anyone does read, i recommend not going to part B since that has spoilers).

Does he have any scars, birthmarks or tattoos? What do you think of them?

It unfortunately is the norm. It's fun to play even just to use your favorites, plus be able to come up with unique builds for them. I really only play it to collect my orbs daily and continue saving for the next time I can summon for my husbando

>>3275425
I know, it sucks you right in. Happy you like it. The plot only grows thicker and once Nezumi steps in, there's never a dull moment. And even with him aside, the story itself is pretty cool, solid worldbuilding, a lot of subversive themes and strong characters.

Sort of an odd one but I find it kinda cute when he swears, it's rare to see and not what you'd expect from him. There's also the matter of him being a super powerful kishin-in-the-making and a competent swordsman to boot, while having a personality and appearance which'd never clue you in to that. Seeing either "side" of him on their own you'd probably never guess the other exists. It all comes together when you see the big picture, but still. I suppose that's pretty gap moe.
>place in his source material
He's a side character by classification but a fairly important one; several of his actions ie his first encounter with Maka and Soul, his betrayal of the Academy, etc act as key plot points that help to advance the story.
>close friends
Maka is definitely the closest, they started as adversaries but became good friends after she reached out and saw what was really going on with him under the surface. She acts almost like a mentor or older sibling to Crona, treating him with kindness he'd never before experienced and helping him adjust to a somewhat more normal life. It's sweet, and he clearly cherishes her friendship.

>>3275127
That's a beautiful drawing, wow.
>official material
There's two video games he's in, I think he's only playable in one though. Don't know much about them since they're older and untranslated but there doesn't seem to be much of interest going on. Pretty basic fightan fare, by the looks of it- https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=v7q-vu9Virs
Otherwise there's a few "official fanbooks" and a databook I have, for which the story is the same. Older and untranslated, there's probably a few kernels of trivia in them but I wouldn't know as I can't read moon. I've been meaning to see about getting them translated somewhere but haven't got around to it. The fanbooks are pretty neat, lots of color illustrations, design materials and such (pic as an example), but the databook only covers about 1/3 of the story due to when it was written.

I would if he had an official one, currently I just cook or bake for our anniversary and a few other holidays. It's a nice excuse to put together something he'd probably enjoy, usually some kind of dessert. Sweet food for a sweet guy.

>>3275230
Your setups are always so nice, have to admit I'm a tad jelly of all that merch too. Cool stuff.

>>3275352
Not very often but I do rewatch an episode or two here and there. I'm definitely due for a full rewatch/reread soon but I'd rather not, for various reasons.

>>3275396
Logically he'd have a bunch of scars (from Ragnarok coming out of his back, various cuts and scrapes from battles, etc), but none are shown in-series. In large part because his outfit covers about 90% of his body, but the one scene where he was shown sans clothing wasn't very detailed as far as that goes. Not certain if that means he canonically doesn't have any scars somehow or the mangaka was just too lazy to draw them, leaning towards the latter. If he did I'd definitely accept them as a part of what makes him who he is, another trait of his that's special and unique. I've actually had a longstanding fantasy of kissing them so as to convey as much, I hope that's not too lewd to say here heh.
Obviously I also wish he never had to be in situations to get any scars in the first place, unfortunately there's no helping that.

>What's his place in his source material
He's the main protagonist for most of it until G era where they introduced a new set of main characters. Of course, he's the protagonist again for the reboot anime.
>Does he have any close friends? If he does, what is their friendship like and how do they treat eachother?
He has a lot of good friends from through the years. Some are even past antagonists.
I'd say his closest friends are the first friends he made after getting into Vanguard, Kai, Misaki and Kamui. They're known as one of the best Vanguard teams together as well. They generally treat each other with care and respect, always willing to lend each other a hand when needed. All three of them treat Aichi as their leader.
He generally just has a very good friendship with all of his friends and I love seeing him be happy together with them. Brings a smile on my face. His childhood was absolutely awful and lonely so images like pic related just melt my heart. I'm getting derailed but his happiness just makes me so happy in return.

It would make sense, since one could call that the day he came into the world, so to speak.

>>3275456
Totally agreed on the scars.
>longstanding fantasy of kissing them
It's ok, I think it's a pretty natural reaction to them. Also guilty of this. I think it's less about the lewd and more a show of love, albeit more intimate. As you put it, they're another unique trait, one that can be traced to a certain event and experience, part of who he is.

As for Nezumi, the most notable is a nasty burn scar on his back, bad enough to still cause him pain years after he got it. It's not only a reminder of his trauma but also of his burden. Visual depictions vary, the anime shows it as several areas but I've also seen it done as smaller in surface or vaguely spider shaped. So i guess it's more a matter of how one pictures it. He also mentions the bullet wound scars but those are never shown. I can imagine he's got quite a few of those, as well as dog bite marks, considering all the stuff he's been through.
Not going to post pic since I'm not sure how much nude is ok here.

>>3275066
>Does he have any gap moe traits or hobbies?
He’s a bit tone deaf when it comes to other people’s feelings and can be perceived as either aloof or cold, but it’s usually the opposite. He acts on impulse from time to time because he cares too much.
>What's his place in his source material, how does he effect the plot and the other characters?
He’s the deuteragonist of Part 5 from JJBA. He’s the leader of his gang and serves as a mentor/friend for the MC. Along with the MC, he’s responsible for several events that occur throughout the story including betraying their boss over an action that he couldn’t let slide anymore. He protects his team as best as he can even if he has to take extreme measures to guarantee their safety and completing missions. Along with the MC, he’s an inspiration and driving force for his teammates.
>Does he have any close friends? If he does, what is their friendship like and how do they treat eachother?
His teammates are basically his friends and family, but his best friend is Leone who he treats as his equal. It helps that they’re the same age and have more common interests because the rest of his team is composed of rowdy teenagers. Since part 5 is very fast and action paced, you don’t get to see much of the team truly relax and participate in more friendly banter because they’re on the run from several enemies.

>Does he have any official material outside of the main story? How do you like them? How do you like his portrayal in them?
He’s in a one-shot spinoff that was featured on a fashion magazine that doesn’t have anything to do with his part but it was nice to read. He’s a government agent who has to investigate a missing pet but he was a bit of a jerk to the person accused in the beginning. I still liked his portrayal though and the fashion was very nice and Gucci. He’s also featured in two light novels in which one is canonically ambiguous and the other one isn’t. I have yet to read the former because there isn’t an English translation, but I didn’t like his portrayal in the non canon one. It made him look like a reluctant and incompetent leader/capo who can’t keep his team under control. It also ruins several of his teammates including the original MC in favor to make the MC of the novel look good. Other than that, he’s been drawn in fashion magazines and is a part of one of the main themes at a current art exhibition in Osaka with several other JJBA characters.

>Do you celebrate or do anything special on his birthday?

>Does he have any official material outside of the main story? How do you like them? How do you like his portrayal in them?
There have been a few pachislots, a gameboy/DS game, a blood donation event, a spinoff comic by Yuupon, and he's shown up in a few phone games/gachas. The ones that don't just follow the plot of the series tend to warp his character, and either turn him into a joke or exaggerate his worse qualities, or often both. Really sucks when even official material mocks his death, too. At least I got cute new images of him.
>>3275223
>Do you celebrate or do anything special on his birthday?
I forget things I've answered immediately after posting them, so I'm gonna answer anyway. He doesn't have an official birthday, but I usually celebrate any husbando-related holiday just rewaching his part in the anime, maybe making food or going out to take pictures if the weather permits. I prefer keeping it low-key.
>>3275352
>How often do you revisit his source material
Not as often as I probably should. I worry about getting tired of it, seeing him in the same few unhappy situations over and over. Also my headphone jack doesn't work in my laptop, and I feel weirdly embarrassed hearing him without headphones on.
>>3275396
>Does he have any scars, birthmarks or tattoos? What do you think of them?
No, although I've seen fanart where he's missing an arm and it makes me so sad. (MC challenged him to bet his arm in a gamble, to which he emphatically refused. He is not the type of person to take such a risk, as he goes on to say.)
Also thanks for the drawing compliments, it's one of the few I felt sort of confident enough in to put on pixiv. It was for his death anniversary.
I'd like to draw some husbandos here sometime, I did that a bit in the /c/ waifu threads before. Maybe around Christmas.
>>
Dropped my question.
He has the opportunity to have one wish granted. Would the wish only benefit him, someone else (one person or multiple), or everyone? What would that wish be?
>>
>>3275650
How are you enjoying the anime so far? I haven't caught up that far in jojo yet but I've heard good things about this adaptation.
>>3275452
I love seeing official production material, it's always so fun seeing all the little details.

Actually, directing this at everyone, post some official production material of him.
>>
>>3275066
>Does he have any gap moe traits or hobbies?
He seems to like vidya, he has an NES in his bedroom.
>What's his place in his source material, how does he effect the plot and the other characters?
He's the main character of Hotline Miami. I guess you could say he's an anti-hero because... well there's not a nice way to say it, Jacket killed a fuck ton of Russian mafia members.
Jacket's is also not a playable character in the second game but the story is still mainly about him and how his previous actions effected other people. Like the Fans who idolize him and try to recreate his killings or a controversial slasher film being made based of the massacre.
>Does he have any close friends? If he does, what is their friendship like and how do they treat eachother?
Beard was his closest friend. They met while serving the military in Hawaii and he actually saved Jacket's life while they were clearing out a power plant.
They still kept in touch after that, calling each other after going back home, Beard to San Francisco and Jacket to Miami.
>>3275127
He is a cameo character in Payday 2. It's pretty obviously not canon but it just means more cute fan art of husbando!
>>3275223
I treat the games release date as his birthday, I usually draw him, order a pizza and just chill with him.
>>3275352
I play my favorite levels often but I have not played the whole game in a while.
>>3275396
Most likely, with all the dangerous things he gets up to I would not be suprised. There's nothing canonical though.

>gap moe traits
Pic related. I feel like I talked about his genki-dorky side a lot already, so time to mention something new. It's even better in context, there was a Stand user who disguised himself as husbando and the "We found the real one, he's totally a guy that would go sunbathing with his uniform on and see nothing wrong with it" reaction is hilarious. He's kind of oblivious to what others might find weird and that includes his famous rerorero habit. He doesn't notice Jotaro's reaction to it in canon and in Line chat game, it's the first thing he does after noticing cherries on table. It might sound normal but keep in mind that cast was in a "If you don't find a way out during a time limit, you all die" situation while being trapped inside a hotel. Cherries>danger, huh.
He also likes to brag a little, in the Line thing he reacts to some enemy names and shortly explains their abilities. But when he said "I was the one who defeated him" to the mention of Gray Fly and nothing else, I laughed. Not to mention the "My hairstyle is more stylish than yours" taunt to Jousuke in ASB and EOH.
>Place in source material
He's one of main characters and brain of the team. One of fanbase jokes related to him that I actually find funny is how Egypt arc having a slightly more lighthearted atmosphere/funnier enemies (until DIO's mansion, of course) is his fault and that most fights would end way faster if he wasn't hospitalized. He saved the day a few times, not to mention him being one who found out about DIO's ability, even if it costed his life.
>>3274405
>Man, now I want to see Kakyoin tipsy, too. My gut reaction is that he'd be a pretty happy drunk, but I'm just guessing.
Actually, my first guess was the same! Would be fun to see him like this, the image is just too cute.
>fkmt
I couldn't get anyone into his works too so far, sadly. Even recommending gambless works like Kurosawa and Gai didn't work, so it's good to meet his fans at least here.

>Extra materials
Only thing I really dislike and never touched is the OOC novel I mentioned back in first thread. As for other materials, I do have some mixed feelings about certain decisions like giving him a new way to die while giving happy ends to others (in PSOne fighting game) and a bunch of shitty mobage but other than that, I love everything else. Anything with new information or lines that can help me learn more about him is a treasure. Events are especially appreciated, as they gave the most fun stuff so far.
>>3275352
>How often do you revisit his source material
Full thing, not so often. I still have trouble seeing the final battle chapters for obvious reasons. But sometimes I get an urge to rewatch or reread some episodes/chapters with my favourite parts. Did it back in October as one of ways to celebrate our anniversary.
>Full Body
I'm really looking forward to it, I'm a huge fan of original game.
>>3275396
>Does he have any scars, birthmarks or tattoos? What do you think of them?
He has scars across his eyes and it's a shame that sometimes even official art has them missing, even though it's definitely meant to portray the events after he got them. It's a part of him that I see nothing wrong with but I really hope they don't bother him much. The only time he ever mentions them is the "Time to make you pay back for my scars" line in newest games when he fights against the person who hurt his eyes in first place.
>No.6
Seeing you in these threads makes me want to go and finally finish the novel. I started it long long ago and Nezumi was my favourite character in it.
>>3275678
Sorry, you didn't ask me but personally I'm enjoying the hell out of VA adaptation even though it's not my favourite part. There are small changes here and there but it's still pretty great so far.

He'd want something to benefit any one else, he's not the type to want to change the past so wishing for something for Aki/Ken is what he'd do.

In a manner of speaking, haha (weather was poor, nothing I could do about that) my.mixtape.moe/lzgsly.jpg
>>3275456
Thank you so much, I work really hard on them and am always upset because it's not as good as I imagined but hearing stuff like that makes me feel better about it. I understand the merch feel, we didn't really get much until the movies/pq1 came out a few years ago so I've spent a long time trying to hunt it all down. It's a shame such popular series like SE get shafted in that department, but with the resurgence in older stuff getting things made maybe it'll change.
>>3275419
Thanks, and I agree, spinoffs are usually very hit or miss in terms of flanderization so I consider him very lucky to not have fallen victim. You've got plenty of time and places to choose from, considering P6 won't be around for a while. Catherine is a pretty unique experience compares to them though so I guess it depends on what you're looking for going in.
>>3275396
No blemishes, as far as has been mentioned. Even if he had them there'd be a story behind it and I'd love him the same.
>>3275352
I replay through FES/P3P yearly, and his Social link on all holidays or when I'm down. It's cumulatively at 1800 + hours for total game time.

Does he have a sweet tooth or does he prefer hardy food? What would be his priority for vacations, somewhere scenic or a city somewhere? Would he fidget while he waited or would he be calm?
>>
>>3275396
>Does he have any scars, birthmarks, or tattoos? What do you think of them?
It seems to be ambiguous because the manga shows that the lace pattern he has on his chest is an undershirt but the anime made it appear as a tattoo. Either way, it looks nice on him. There’s no mention of scars or birthmarks unlike the MC who has the Joestar birthmark.

>>3275678
I’m enjoying the adaptation a lot! They really upped their game with this part in terms of music, pacing, and animation. They removed a few minor scenes but added some others as well, so it’s all good in the end. It’s my favorite part of the JJBA series, so every new episode has me hyped up and waiting for more.

I forgot to mention in the extra source material that he appears in at least three video games (the VA ps2 one, All Star Battle, Eyes of Heaven) and two app games (Diamond Records? and Pitter Patter Pop). I’ve only played All Star Battle at a friend’s house back in the day but I’ve never played as my husbando. I’d love to play Pitter Patter Pop but the game isn’t compatible with my iPhone.

>>3275675
>wish
He kind of got his, several even, albeit not in the way he would have liked them. As the story leaves him off, I doubt he knows himself what he might want.

>>3275707
The only downside to finishing the novel is that there's more Nezumi afterwards.

Found myself poring over the damn things again >>3275420
Time traveled several hours, gushing over the stupidest lines (like him saying goats are cute) and noticing details I'd either missed or forgotten the first time. One thing that had flown over my head during was just how often Shion tries to put the moves on him, which makes a lot of doujins even more ridiculous, since they tend to make Nezumi the lewd one. So I guess this counts as revisiting the source material.
I apologize for the sperging.

>>3275907
Wow, that setup! Bloody awesome.

>Sweet tooth
Doesn't get to indulge much tho.
>Vacations
Both environment suit him well, as long as he gets to explore and experience new things.
>Waiting
If it's a situation in which he's got the upper hand, then calm and composed and even if it weren't he'd still do his best to keep his cool.

Post husbando in a alternative outfit, either canonical or fanart is fine.

>He has the opportunity to have one wish granted. Would the wish only benefit him, someone else (one person or multiple), or everyone? What would that wish be?
I don't think he could resist the temptation to grant one just for himself. As for what he'd want, I'm not sure. Could just go for money. I do wonder if he's afraid enough of death to wish for something like immortality, or unnaturally long life, but I can't be certain.
>>3275907
Your setups are always some of the best ones in those threads, don't be too down on yourself. Setting them up on the beach is such a nice touch for him.
>sweet tooth or hardy food?
I'm gonna say hardy/savory food. Hope he likes spicy food too.
>scenic or city vacations?
He's more of a city boy. I'd like to compromise and choose somewhere scenic that's still a short drive from the city, though.
>Would he fidget while he waited or would he be calm?
He'd fidget, he's not terribly patient.
>>3275944
I'm glad it's going well, and that they're sticking closer to the original art style this time around. The only bit I've seen (since I still have catching up to do) was that dance scene, those effects were so cool.
What are your favorite non-husbando-related parts?
>>3275985
>arm
No, it was a different bet. It was basically the MC making a point about how gambling's all about the risk of a meaningless death, and trying to mitigate that is anathema.
Not sure how him losing an arm after all would affect Washizu's opinion, but I doubt it'd save him.
Clip of the scene, if you want to see: https://files.catbox.moe/hceacp.mkv
I'm trying to pace myself at one full chapter of No. 6 a day so I can draw out the enjoyment, but once I start I do just wanna keep going.

Have to triple-post because I talk too fucking much and I can't type, but the video has a somewhat sudden cutoff, sorry. Fitting in the extra second would've made it look more awkward.

Crona nooo ;_;
That aside, I can think of two things he might wish for, both of which would be beneficial to other people - for all of his friends to live/continue living safe and happy lives, or to somehow undo the harm he was made to inflict on others.

>>3275678
Definitely, they're really neat. I own a couple of these (got lucky with a lot on Y!Auctions, after several misses), I have them scanned too but only one fits under the filesize limit.

>>3275907
>always upset because it's not as good as I imagined
I sure know how that feels, staging a nice scene always seems so easy until you actually get down to it. It's a labor of love though, the effort and care certainly shows in yours.
>It's a shame such popular series like SE get shafted in that department
The series actually has a pretty decent variety of merch, it's just that Crona evidently falls outside of the "heroes" camp so he doesn't get the full range of goodies most of his friends do. I'm glad I've been able to find what I have, but a plush or a fig would be really great.
>food
I get the impression he'd have a sweet tooth; his supposed favorite food is more hearty but he does seem open in general.
>vacations
Scenic, I think. The traditional jet setting vacation would probably be pretty stressful for him, I can see him preferring a scenic local road trip for its simplicity.
>waiting
It's shown to a degree in his series, he does get rather anxious and fidgety over some things but I imagine he'd be more passive and relaxed about others.

From the movie artbook. The winking face kills me every time.

He's confirmed to like sweet things at least.
Not sure about vacation priorities, he would enjoy both as long as he had friends on the vacation together with him. But he lives in the middle of a city so I could imagine him wanting to travel somewhere more scenic for a change.
He would remain calm while waiting.

>>3275998
It's not a canon outfit because it's for the sake of collab merch but I love this. He always looks cute as hell in uniforms and suits in general.

Do you have any physical items like something he'd have, something to make you think of him? Like a shirt that looks like his, an item similar to a keepsake of his, things like that.

Since I left sage on, here's another question to bump the thread: How would you react if you saw a roleplayer of him? Or even someone who's fictionkin with him?
This isn't about replacing him with a 3D person or any of that, just what you'd think of it as a phenomenon. Would you read what they wrote, or would you rather not know it exists?

He has a single mole on his cheek, and I think it's adorable.
>>3275907
>Does he have a sweet tooth or does he prefer hardy food?
I can see him having a sweet tooth.
>What would be his priority for vacations, somewhere scenic or a city somewhere?
He'd lean more towards scenic, and sparsely populated, though he's not much of a vacationer type.
>Would he fidget while he waited or would he be calm?
He's calm, he enjoys peace and quiet more than most so he'd see waiting as a relief.
>>3276026
>Is he more of a neat freak or a controlled chaos kind of guy? Would he clash with you on this, if you lived together?
He leans more towards organized but chaos would annoy him. But he's no neat freak. If we lived together it'd be perfect because I quite like cleaning and organizing...
>>3276235
>Do you have any physical items like something he'd have, something to make you think of him?
I bought two succulents on impulse because of him actually (his gardening hobby). The color just called out to me as they were a pretty blue-ish green, just like his weapons. I feel like he'd appreciate such hardy plants as well.

This had me thinking for awhile. Its never stated outright but iirc I never saw him eat anything sweet. Even when Kathrine brought him cake he never touched it. I know she has a sweet tooth so I'm wondering if she was just giving him what she likes instead of what he would enjoy
>What would be his priority for vacations, somewhere scenic or a city somewhere?
He calls the city hes living in a dump at one point so he would enjoy something more scenic

>Gap moe traits or hobbies?
Since he's a Vocaloid, he doesn't really have a canon personality outside of liking ice-cream. But in most official media he's portrayed in one of two ways: "comical onii-san" or "cool sex-appeal". I tend to think of the former as his normal personality and the latter as a persona he adopts for acting in videos and putting on shows. I think this fits with what little dialogue we get from him in Project DIVA X as well.

>His place in his source material?
He's one of the two original Japanese-language Vocaloids. As such, he's like the older brother of the group. Since Vocaloids are computer programs, he could be thought of as your own personal diva, living inside your computer.

>>3275127
>Official material?
Basically my entire conception of him is based off the Project DIVA rhythm games. The Vocaloids still don't really have much personality in those games, but they play different parts in the various song videos, and generally treat the player as their master, cheering you on when you do well and acting disappointed when you screw up.

>>3275352
>How often do you revisit?
I play Project DIVA almost every day just to see his face and hear his adorable voice. He never fails to cheer me up.

>>3276235
>Physical items?
I carry earbuds with me all the time so I can play DIVA whenever I want. Usually, I pick out blue ones to match him. I also have lots of merch--figures, t-shirts, wall-scrolls, an itabag full of pins/keychains... etc. I don't carry that stuff with me everywhere though.

Started binging akagi btw. So far it's slapped my expectations over the face, good stuff. I'm about halfway through it.

Yukio a cute tho. Looks like he totally fell in with the wrong crowd. Past the arm bet and I kind of sense where they're going with him but again, I need to finish it first.

nah, that would be weird, especially if it's a real person. Would be too uncomfortable to interact. Not only are my feelings too strong but I'd get an overall idea that it's forced and not him. I'm fine with him acting as someone else but not someone acting as him (around me that is, otherwise, if that's their thing, they can do whatever)
>fictionkin
what is that?
>would you read what they wrote
dunno, most fanfics I stumbled upon just didn't sound like them at all (or like the novel's own voice). Hell, that's why I can't bring myself to write no. 6 fanfiction, although I do write (which I should be doing now, yet am avoiding it). I might have a doujin idea but I don't know if I should.

As for Beyond, sadly it's just a few short stories. They do fill in a lot of stuff and are generally nice but the last two either leave on a depressing ending or a mean cliffhanger, depending on how you look at them. I prefer the latter but I might just be in denial.

Fictionkin are people who believe themselves to be that character, either through reincarnation or being in their head or some other way. Roleplayers who went off the deep end, I guess?
Also I love your bookstore idea too. It's a nice feeling seeing something I know he'd enjoy, even if it's not something I'd ever pick for myself.

>Is he more of a neat freak or a controlled chaos kind of guy? Would he clash with you on this, if you lived together?
I always see him as pretty tidy, although I think even in controlled chaos he wouldn't have too much trouble remembering where everything is. I'm definitely worse and he'd get annoyed.
>>3276235
I have a shirt like his, and someday I'd like to find sunglasses that look as much like his as I can manage.
>>3276244
I found a very old livejournal roleplay of him and it was actually kind of fun to read, even if I didn't completely agree with how they characterized him. I tend to look at things like that with morbid curiosity, it's interesting seeing how others have interpreted him. If I ever saw fictionkin I'd probably look around and see what they've written, and see how they think (after laughing my ass off).
>>3276389
>Do you have any older or younger pictures of your husbando canon or not?
Older ones are tough because he ends up looking exactly like another character by the same author. I have some younger ones though, he's such a cute kid. I'm sure he wouldn't have the same hairstyle as his adult one, but it's still cute in kid pictures.
>What would he think of your hobbies
No major issues, mine are all pretty low-key. Maybe he'd want to make things a little more active, but I see him as the kind of guy who can appreciate downtime, so again, I don't think he'd take too much issue.
I do wonder what he'd think of my drawings of him.
>How do you feel about art of your husbando looking stressed or sad?
I get how you feel about the bullying, but I like those pictures because they make me want to take care of him. As long as they're not outright cruel, of course.
Plus it's relatable.

I love Fukumoto's writing so much. He's at his best in Ten, which takes place a while after and expands even more on Akagi (he was originally from Ten and got popular enough for a prequel), the last three volumes are phenomenal.
Yukio's definitely in the wrong crowd, he's not cut out for the yakuza life. Just makes me want to help him, somehow. Forgot if I said this but fair warning, the last half is all one match and ends in the middle, because it wasn't finished at the time.

Questions:
What makes life worthwhile for him?
How does he learn best? By seeing, hearing, feeling, doing, etc.

He's pretty neat if only because he doesn't have a whole lot of worldly goods to begin with, I'm more materialistic but I keep things fairly tidy. I don't see it being an issue.

>>3276235
I have a journal that I used to write my poems to/about him in, I can see him having something like that if it counts. A sweater like his here would be nice to have come to think of it, I should see if I can find one.

>>3276244
Headcanons and other fanon stuff can be mildly interesting sometimes I'll admit, but I try to avoid those particular kinds of people.

>>3276389
He's shown at maybe 5-6 years old in flashbacks and his inner world, will post a pic next post. Nothing canon of him older, though.
>hobbies
Gardening would definitely be something we could share, I think he'd also enjoy certain video games and he'd probably take well to art too. It's not as big of an interest for me but I think he'd enjoy baking as well.
>looking stressed or sad
Don't care for it, and honestly I hate how much of the art found around the web shows him in that state. It's obviously a part of him and his story but I'd much rather see a well-drawn picture of him happy than sad or otherwise unwell.

Yeah, that's the goal. I'd be really happy if I could improve his outlook even a little, not like it'd be a huge feat considering where he comes from but still.
And thanks, if it's any consolation I had to spend a lot buying those sets blind (sellers only included pics of 2-4 of the ~50 sheets in each) before I got lucky with that one.

Aww, kid Yukio is adorable.

>>3276568
Other people I'd say, more specifically people he cares about who care about him in turn. It'd be great if he could find his own source of fulfillment but that's still a good start.
>learn
Doing generally, though he doesn't seem to lag too far behind with the other ways either. Maybe it's just my own bias but I feel like he's smarter than people give him credit for.

Would (or does) your husbando have a varied, extensive wardrobe or would he prefer to keep it simple?

>The lack of canon personality
I’m glad you think it makes sense, desu I hesitated to even post here since everyone was talking about their husbandos’ deep personalities and suchnot, and Kaito... doesn’t have one lol. But I think for me, that’s part of the attachment—since I discovered Kaito on youtube at a young age, I’ve developed my own image of him that’s grown and matured along with me. Of course I project traits I like onto him, but I still love every version of Kaito I see in merch, art, etc. I guess it’s a similar sort of attachment to a teddy bear or something you’ve had for a long time.

Within the several VG decks I have, I've made a Royal Paladin deck after the archtype he plays. That's as close as I'll get to having something he would have.
And of course, I didn't go easy on my wallet with getting some special shiny/hot stamped versions of cards for it.

>>3276244
I ignore these things. Not my thing. People tend to get his personality wrong to some extent and make up things that aren't canon.
Fictionkin is odd. I don't agree to it, I leave it be.

>>3276568
>What makes life worthwhile for him?
All the fun he has together with people, and through that Vanguard itself. It is the reason to why he is as happy as he is now.

>How does he learn best?
Either by seeing or doing.

>>3276596
If we do count spin offs, his outfits have quite a bit of variety between series'. Sweaters, T-shirts, hoodies, scarves, jackets, etc. He's actually the reason I started liking sweaters so much. Seeing all the cute fanart back in 2011 already really did their job.

>>3276389
>Do you have any older or younger pictures of your husbando canon or not?
He's been shown younger in flashbacks quite a few times and he is grown a bit older in G seasons so I do have both.

>What would he think of your hobbies
He obviously would be happy to know yet another person who plays Vanguard, and card games in general.
Video games I'm not that sure about. I think he wouldn't mind them though. Might not get into them as much as me, but he surely would enjoy fun co-op games.

>How do you feel about art of your husbando looking stressed or sad?
Seeing him this way usually awakens my strong feelings of wanting to protect him. I don't look for it or want it, but I don't really mind it as long as it's not completely harmful.

He would like to go somewhere he could relax, sleep untill noon and genarally take it easy. He would likely choose scenery and nice weather over tourism and experiencing foreign culture.

I don't mind. Even if it's not very character acurate, it's still people just having fun and essentially larping as a character they care about. I wouldn't read it, but it's harmless enough.
On the other hand the whole fictionkin thing is wierd and prabably another case of teens trying to make themself more special and intresting, without the 'hard work and improving yourself' part. I think it's pretty lazy but they are free to do what they want.

That sounds like such a unique experience. At first it doesn't sound like it'd work for a husbando with a more established personality, but then, your perspective of him could change over time regardless of who it is.
How long has it been, since you say he's matured with you?
>>3276655
Co-op definitely sounds up his alley. Dunno if it sounds presumptuous, but I see him being the type to play a lot of Nintendo titles, goodhearted fun games, that kind of thing.
Do you play other card games?
>>3276929
That video is lovely, the music in these games is too fucking good. Do you think he'd want to live somewhere like that, or just visit? Dunno if it'd be too touristy for living in.

Being alive to enjoy it. Making money and living comfortably without too much fear, but still some mental stimulation.

Seeing for sure, with the photographic memory, but maybe doing to an extent as well. Whatever gets it stuck in his memory.

We only ever see him in the one suit, but I think he'd like having some variety. He's a stylish guy.

Should count, it sounds like a blend between your world and his, an intersection between the two, thus a wonderful way to show love and think about him.

It's only natural that some people prefer to fill in the gaps themselves. There's a similar concept in literature, by which one provides only a few significant details and lets the audience fill in the rest. Being able to project traits on him is just proof of the freedom you have, so that's pretty cool.

>>3276655
Playing card games with husbando sounds so comfy.

>hurt
In a sense, yes. Can't go that much into it without spoiling and it does work out in the end, sort of.
Then there's the more abstract stuff, like the break between what he sees in Shion and who Shion actually is, the whole smashed idealization and loving that which he himself believes he lacks.

>words
Articulate, witty and pretty venomous at times. Knows when to tone it down though and how to be sweet and funny as well. It's a big part of his character and part of what made me fall for him.

>Christmas
I think he'd enjoy it. He's surely read about it but never had one, so it would be cute to see him celebrate. Just picturing him with a Santa hat reaching up to put decorations on the tree brings a stupid smile to my face.
>>
>>3276944
>How long has it been?
About 11 years give or take? I remember being moved to tears when he got his V3 release in 2013 cause it felt like he was growing up and improving as a singer (Kaito gets a lot of flak for not sounding great, but the problems with his voice were mostly fixed in his V3 update).

>>3277162
That’s true, and I don’t really want them to assign more of a personality to him anyway since I might not like that personality so much.

Here’s a question since I’ve only been answering stuff so far: Do you think he’d enjoy shopping? Not just for clothes, but for anything else like electronics, or makeup, or even weapons or something. Do you think he’d be a frugal shopper or loose with money?

I imagine Kaito as quite vain, though it’d also be a necessity for his job if he was a singer or actor. I think he’d enjoy clothes shopping a lot but be awful about making up his mind about what to buy, and he’d be bad at saying “no” to store associates trying to sell him stuff, so in the end he’d end up spending way too much.

Goodness yes. He's such a no-nonsense assertive straight man that his seriousness IS the joke. So all the times that shell cracks (which is more often than you'd think) and he's goofing off or doing cute things in the bg are even more adorable. He's so earnest about everything. Hard to single out any particular trait as much as a pattern of behavior, so it's easier to say he has an essence of moeGAR.
Well he's not THE main character, it's an ensemble cast, and his friend Keith is the one who gets more conventional anime protag traits and progression (kinda), but he's close. He kicks off the story when he gets kidnapped by aliens then tortured and experimented on for a year before coming back with a warning then becoming the leader of the heroes since he's a prodigy pilot. Eastern fans joke that he's the true princess and heroine to Keith's more traditional hero, and even though his job is to be an active fighter and the face of the heroes he does spend a surprising amount of time moving the plot forward as a passive figure by motivating Keith and being his damsel in distress, plus he literally inherits princess Allura's duties, so they're not really wrong about that haha.
Besides his bromance with Keith, his other teammates, and his ex, it's not clear. They don't really dwell on his backstory much but the whole reason his ex left him was because he chose to cut him out of his life in order to continue doing what he loved, so I wouldn't be surprised if he lost all his other nonprofessional relationships by then.

He's got a big Guts-esque one across his nose that one of the head animators threw in during the design process. We'll never learn how exactly he got it but I guess it was when he was a gladiator. A lot of fanartists like to assume he got cut up pretty badly back then or as a guinea pig and some of the episode directors have drawn his body with scars like this one, but others have not, and on the show at least his arms or neck are pristine, so it remains fanon. Clearly this is why we need a proper shirtless scene from him, so we can know the truth of the matter. I do like the nose scar. Makes his design stand out more and it even looks like a cute blush in many shots.
>>3276244
They're out there, and rather cringy if you ask me since they're wholly concerned with shipping and catering to shippers. Explicit kinning is not so common, but the fandom is downright plagued with people who identify with one of the characters to a scary extent, but I don't see as many who do it to him in particular. Small mercy I guess? Usually they SI to get at him than as him. While people can certainly relate to some of them, he's got too many definitive issues going on which is probably why he's a poor choice of SI. There are people who "use" him to bang their real faves (usually Keith) but they don't treat him very well. They file off all of the traits that make him interesting and diminish his flaws and insecurities in order to make him more convenient vehicle for delivering their fave a dose of healing cock, which I find really offputting and reductive.
>>3276026
Definitely more of a neat freak. Very orderly and fastidious but won't cramp down on you for not living up to it. Don't expect him to pick up after you though. If someone else calls you out on it he'll take their side over yours.

He has the most outfits and design changes out of the main cast by far. Hard to choose just one so I'll go with something I drew up. Not sure if I want to bother finishing it since the composition is so lazy and uninspired, but I got the idea since similarly to Artoria (I refuse to use the "official" spelling), he comes in three major flavors: the base form (himself), "dark" form (really an innocent clone body programmed to be a sleeper agent, but he unfairly looks down on him), and a "light" form (his soul resurrected into the clone's body by magic), plus all the variations within those, as well as a few more. And, like Saber, he is a more powerful and accomplished, strong-willed "heroine" who nevertheless defers to the younger "hero" character, receives the most elaborate fight scenes, and seems to be a fave with staff artists. To the point that one of the animators for the show is even making and selling R18 doujinshi of him, hilariously enough.
>>3275230
Official spinoffs fucking with the characters you know and love after the fact is really painful, especially if they're supposed to be from the same people responsible for making you fall for them in the first place. I've heard things about the way they keep doing the cast of P4 particularly dirty. I'm glad at least Shinji made it out OK.
>>3275907
He'll eat about anything as long as it's properly nutritious and not too disgusting. He loves cafeteria food so he's no gourmand.
Vacation is a foreign concept to him. But he'd probably prefer the city. Plenty of landmarks to get his nerd on, convenient access to amenities, and besides he's been all over the galaxy so the novelty of "scenic" locales has probably worn off by now.
If he was ever a fidgetter at any point he's long trained himself out of those habits by now. Being able to stay calm in extremely difficult situations is one of the skills that kept him alive for as long as it did.

I agree with that really, there's a lot of fun Nintendo titles he'd probably find easy to enjoy. Speaking of them, Smash just came out and I think he'd find all the various sword fighter characters interesting. I feel like he'd have fun playing a game like this with friends and such, he already has the atmosphere of friendly competition with card gaming.
And I've also played MtG, Pokemon TCG and YGO. I just really love cards games, but VG is about the only one I keep up with since years ago. I'd say my heart found me a very fitting target of affection.

>>3276026
He keeps things neat and tidy. It definitely would clash a bit with my "whatever" attitude, but if I actually did live with him I would feel guilty if I didn't help him with housework. Doing things together is always more enjoyable.

>>3276946
>Does he have a way with words, or is he more awkward and inarticulate?
He used to be the latter but over the years he grew up much more confident and less awkward. It's a part of him I admire.

He surely likes Christmas. It's a great holiday for him to spend time with family or friends.

>>3277189
I don't see him being much of a shopper. Unless he's at a game store, one focused for tabletop/card games specifically. But he usually goes to card shops for the sake of meeting people and playing games and not really for shopping unless a new set is out. I guess shopping for clothes is a given, don't think he would dislike it or anything either.
He's quite an organized person so he's probably also pretty money smart.

Definitely agree on it being fanfiction, but it is fun to read. It was some big cross-series group roleplay about a spaceship that was stuck in a time loop or something, made for an interesting read.
And yes, the story continues for quite a while in the manga. Anime finishes around chapter 108-109, out of 306, most of which is that same match.

This seems to be a universal fujo trait, I swear, but the Voltron fandom seems to take it all to a disturbing extreme. I can't begin to comprehend that particular rabbit hole.
Also I love your drawing so far, I hope you can finish it or work out something you like more. I love seeing everyone's drawings here, honestly, it's so nice.

It's cool that you already share such a big hobby with him, feels like I should get more into mine's hobby. I do like the visual of Aichi in a card shop on a game night, having a blast with a bunch of new players.
>housework with husbando
My heart.
>>
>Has he ever been hurt or betrayed by someone he thought he could depend on? What happened?
Yasuoka, his manager, seemed to drop him like a hot potato after a particularly bad match. (The manga says that nobody knows where Yukio went in that time period, so I'm assuming that includes Yasuoka.) I guess "betrayed" depends on how much confidence Yukio held in their working relationship, but that's a letdown for anyone.
I wonder how he lived and felt during that time, when he just disappeared from public knowledge. Where he went, if he struggled to find work, if he burdened himself with regrets and humiliation, how he felt about all the rumors about Akagi floating around. I just want to believe he found some kind of happiness, somewhere.
>Does he have a way with words, or is he more awkward and inarticulate?
About average. He's crude when he's angry, gets tricked by some rather bullshit wordplay at a crucial point. Also doesn't use as many creative metaphors or similes as some of the other characters, even berating the MC for his cryptic metaphors, but I think that's more about his personality. He'd rather be straightforward - unless it'd embarrass him, of course - and expects the same from others.
>Do you think he'd like Christmas?
I think he'd enjoy the decorations and trading gifts. Although it is more of a romantic holiday there, dunno how that would affect things for him. Almost nobody has any romantic relationships in Fukumoto works, it is a mystery.
>>3277189
11 years is amazing, congrats!
>Do you think he’d enjoy shopping? Do you think he’d be a frugal shopper or loose with money?
I think he'd have some fun looking around at high-tech electronics, flashy clothes, fancy things, maybe some godawful colognes. I'll always be convinced for whatever reason that he's got expensive tastes, maybe it's the outfit. Plus he just likes to impress people, so it's not a huge stretch.
He'd want to empty his wallet, but restrain himself for the sake of his savings account.

Do you two share any flaws?
Imagine him walking into a glass door. How does he react? How does he recover?

I know, right? He's so cute.
>hurt or betrayed
By his mother in a sense, though it's hardly a betrayal as their relationship had always (as far as is shown) been one of hurt and dysfunction. He was also lead to believe that his friends at the Academy betrayed him rather than it being the other way around, however even when he was most lost he was aware in some capacity that it wasn't truly the case.
>words
Both, he gets very awkward and stuttery when he's nervous but he also has a few lines that're quite poignant and hard-hitting. Ditto for his poem, if others' reactions to it are anything to go by. I suppose that's another gap moe trait, heh.

I think he would, he'd probably enjoy having a reason to give gifts more than anything, maybe the general cheery hubbub of the season too. I'd still spoil him with plenty of presents for the occasion though, I'm sure his reaction would be positively adorable.

In flashbacks set a few years ago he mostly looks the same sans fresher eyes and minor differences in hairstyle. The only time we see him as a child are from a fictional autobiography he created for a tabletop game which I don't consider canon. The leaked ending (if real) shows him ten years in the future and beside minor differences in hair he looks like he hasn't aged a day. He'd be as cute as ever if not for the horrible parasite that took residence on his chin. But it's something he can easily slay with a razor once he gets tired of cosplaying Akihiko.

He'd support my nerd fascinations but get on my case for being so unambitious and try to prod me into being less of a lump. Well, I just don't particularly need much to be fulfilled, so good luck to him with that.

Since I like whump it's a guilty pleasure with emphasis on the guilty part. The important thing is that there's a light at the end of the tunnel afterwards and someone to make him feel good.

>Headcanons and other fanon stuff can be mildly interesting sometimes I'll admit, but I try to avoid those particular kinds of people.
Gah same. Deep analysis can be nice, but so much of the time it's just projection and wishful thinking perverted by shipping goggles rather than coherent attempts at extrapolating details that I don't bother.
>>3275944
Been enjoying the adaptation too. Wasn't my favorite part of the manga even with the improved scans but the slick animation and especially Kishida's adapted designs make me enjoy it way more. It's rare to find people who can nail the latter BT/early SC look so well and I love that he brought some of that specific flair over. Giorno and Bruno look especially gorgeous

Thanks. I have that ADHD problem where I come up with a new idea as soon as I get started on my old one so it's very hard to get any one thing finished. And yeah I swear some of these people don't even watch the show, they just read other shippers' summary.

>Do you think he’d be a frugal shopper or loose with money

He would totally spend his whole money for sweets and cute things.

>sweet tooth or hardy food?

Definitly sweet tooth~

>What would he think of your hobbies

He would totally share it with me and would be really happy. We would play cute and funny games together, cuddle all day in bed when it's cold and eat lots of sweets together.

>Would he fidget while he waited or would he be calm?

He would pouting like a little child and don't want to wait. He would hang on me and complains and look to me with his puppydoll eyes.


>Art of him looking stressed or sad?

Yeah sure. He can be psycho sometimes, so there's a lot of sad or stressed pictures of him. I wanted to comfort him so much when I see those pictures!

>Does he have a way with words, or is he more awkward and inarticulate?

He's pretty manipulativ, so he's pretty good with words and wrap people around his finger with his cute and childish behaviour. I would eat up everything he would do or say.

Here'a picture I drew of him.

Maybe. Depends on the shopping, he's surely the type you can't peel away from a bookstore.

He's more of the sticky fingers kind of guy. Otherwise I imagine he's quite down to earth, since he understands how hard it is to make ends meet.

>>3277256
Awesome drawing.

>>3277321
Haha, that image is so cute.

>flaws
Overthinking, brooding and assuming the worst.
>glass door
Omg, he'd be mortified. It would totally ruin that poise of his and throw him off. He'd look around in panic to check if anyone noticed, then rush away. Moe as hell.
>alarm
Depends on what he's been up to but he'll get up before it if it's something important or life threatening.

>>3277834
Love the hair.

>>3277899
>in a fight
He's pretty vicious and no bullshit. Not afraid to use a knife, good shot with a gun, quite scary at times. I'd do my best to help him out though.

On a similar note:
Say he gets injured, could you help him? Could he help you if you got hurt?
What about emotional support, is he the always-knows-the-right-thing-to-say or does he end up making it worse?

It's funny that a lot of younger versions of characters tend to look so similar to their older counterparts, when it doesn't make that much sense if you think about it. Maybe they just found the look they liked and stuck with it their whole life.

>Do you two share any flaws?
We overthink things and avoid risk to a fault, we can't always understand other viewpoints, we aren't strong psychologically and crumble under pressure.
>Imagine him walking into a glass door. How does he react? How does he recover?
Shock melting into utter embarrassment, walks away as fast as he can, fuming. It probably happened because he didn't take off those damn sunglasses.
>Does he wake up before his alarm goes off, or does he sleep through it?
He'd probably wake up before it, but thinking of him waking up late and scrambling is too cute.
>>3277899
He's an ordinary human, but I'm sure he could throw a punch. I think he'd have a hard time getting in the right mindset to fight, though. He'd have to do the protecting, I'm weak as fuck.
>>3277914
>Say he gets injured, could you help him? Could he help you if you got hurt?
I can't carry him anywhere, but I'll do my best to patch him up and get him to the hospital. He'd be about the same, although he could carry me, at least.
Either way we'd be panicking while trying not to panic.
>What about emotional support, is he the always-knows-the-right-thing-to-say or does he end up making it worse?
I like this question. I think he'd have trouble understanding how to handle emotional issues sometimes. Especially when you just want to vent, he'd do his damndest to try and "solve" it, even if it's not something you really could solve. Like I said, he can't always relate to others' viewpoints.
Oddly enough, I think he'd be pretty good at talking me out of a panic, as long as it wasn't the kind of thing that'd make him panic, too. And if he didn't think it was stupid. I just imagine him telling me the actual odds of the worst thing happening, and bringing a more realistic perspective that helps you ground yourself.

What would you get him for Christmas?
What's something he could talk about with you for hours?

Cute figs, they look so comfy there! I kind of want to get some more too, now. I got in some cafe merch the other day, as well as a crazy rare poster and it made me really happy, seeing his face on stuff is soothing. my.mixtape.moe/imthhl.jpg
>what would you get him for Christmas
We're both really practical so something he could use like a kitchen utensil or some new equipment. Maybe a scarf or a new coat.
>something he could talk about for hours
He's not much of a talker, but he'd enjoy aimless conversation or sitting and listening to someone get excited about something. He's shown a strength for applicable sciences in addition to culinary/animal knowledge so he'd have a fair more to say with those things I feel.
>>3277914
>could you help him
Thankfully, I've got quite a bit of training in that department, I'm fairly confident that anything short of his canon injury I'd be able to take care of.
>could he help you
Not much, going by his line "I don't do healing or support shit, so don't look at me if you get hurt."
>emotional support
He's clumsy but definitely knows what to say. He's intuitive and conscious of those around him so saying the thing someone needs to hear the most is something that comes to him.
>>3277899
He's pretty fucking stronk; and be doing the protecting most of the time.
>>3277321
>do you share any flaws
We're both stubborn as hell, and have poor self esteem.
>imagine him walking into a glass door
I needed that laugh. He'd blush, and just scratch the back of his head while walking off with a "dammit".
>does he wake up
Yeah, early and easy riser.
>>3277256
>spinoffs fucking with characters you love is painful
Definitely, and unfortunately one of the characters I care about most is flanderized particularly hard in spin offs but yeah thanks, shinji making it is a very small victory and I'll take it. I'm glad Shiro doesn't seem in danger of that; he's got a great characterization and it'd be a shame to see it screwed with.
>>

>>3277189
Do you think he'd enjoy shopping
He'd enjoy it for sure, he looks at cooking and pet magazines, as well as spends money on expensive dog food so I can see a few hours being spent browsing and spending more than we probably should on some ingredients or equipment.
>>3276946
>has he ever been hurt or betrayed
Nothing lasting or more than a small disagreement, fortunately. He's a kind soul deep down and while most are kept at bay by his aggressiveness I don't think he'd take betrayal well.
>does he have a way with words
Hell no, he's adorably clumsy and awkward with words but endearingly so. He tries very hard and it may not be the most eloquent conversation, but his sincerity and candidness more than makes up for it.
>>3276596
>does he have a varied wardrobe
He seems to prefer to keep it simple and with what he knows.
>>3276568
>what makes life worthwhile for him
The things he does to help others, mainly; and later the fight he takes on to keep Ken safe.
>how does he learn best
Seeing.
>>3276389
>do you have any pictures of him younger
Yes, both canon and not. He seems a very serious child, sasuga but also kind of saddening at the same time. my.mixtape.moe/myhvrg.jpg
>what would he think of your hobbies
He'd nag at me for being on my computer too long or for zoning out on a book in the dark but as long as I was happy he wouldn't say anything more.
>how do you feel about art of him feeling stressed or sad
If it's done tastefully I tend to like all shades of more serious art; it makes him feel more human. Though that tends to be a vast majority of the art he gets, so I personally have a preference for happier stuff nowadays.

Looks good, I like the shading.

>>3277899
Very, he's the Demon Swordsman after all. Even without his sword wielding skills, his black blood lends a huge boost to his hand-to-hand combat abilities too. So it'd be the latter, I'd probably just get in the way.

>>3277914
Depends on the degree of it, I'm no doctor but I could dress smaller injuries (being sure to kiss them after to make them feel better, of course). That's another area where his black blood would be helpful actually; he can locally harden it to stop bleeding so he might not even need the help. Still would want to be sure he's alright and generally dote on him though, and it would be a distressing thing to experience.
>Could he help you
Probably with a bit of coaching, if I was in a state to give it. If nothing else, his presence by itself would be hugely reassuring.
>emotional support
Similarly to the above, him just being there and listening would be a big help on its own. Doubt he'd have much actual advice to give for issues that're "out of his lane" so to speak, but he's a good listener and gives great hugs and that's about the best I can ask for.

>>3277947
Thanks for linking anon, probably would've missed the thread otherwise.

>>3277955
>wonder if he'd find the ticking sound soothing.
That's a really endearing thought, I can see it being the case too. Just the right amount of subtle, constant background noise to keep things from getting too quiet while he's home by himself.

>>3277958
Really nice, sleeping Yukio is especially cute.
>Christmas
Not quite for Christmas itself, but it'd be fun to give him an Advent calendar to work through. Aside from that, some high quality stationary supplies and a couple of nice outfits would be pretty solid gifts I think.
>something he could talk about with you for hours
Maybe his impressions of/experiences with his friends, or his brief time at the Academy. I'd love to hear him just talk about whatever was on his mind, I'd hang onto every word.
>>
Feels like I've been imagining him around me a little more often than I used to, it's nice. Dunno the general attitude about that here, but I missed doing it, it's pretty comfy. Helps that he just sort of pops in occasionally, I'd find it annoying imagining him there constantly.
I'll answer questions another day, sorry about that.

Maybe I would start him off with a plant first
>What do you think his favorite film or novel genre would be?
One book he has is a stand in for Harry Potter
So he might enjoy escapist type fantasy maybe I could introduce him to isekai haha
Also he has an interest in tech and space so sci-fi would be a good bet
>What merch do you want of him
I would be so happy if he got a nendoroid

>What would you get him for Christmas?
I used to actually buy him presents, but it felt too weird and they weren't things I'd use myself. One of them was a nice wallet, I think that's one he'd enjoy. Also books, always a safe choice.
>What's something he could talk about with you for hours?
I want him to get deep into the intricacies of probability. I'm not super interested in it, but seeing him get excited and engaged would make me happy, and hell, maybe it'd soak in a little bit and I'd learn something. On the other hand, there's a part where he's breaking down the probability of having certain tiles in his hand and my eyes still glaze over. I only have this problem in his parts. I'll go from hearing about the tactical aspects of a tse-ii-men match with no issue to "hehe Yukio cute. he talk about mahjogn. very handseom" because he's too fucking distracting.
>>3278643
>Would he like pets?
I think he'd like one, as long as it's alright living in an apartment. Can never decide if he's more of a cat or dog person.
>What do you think his favorite film or novel genre would be?
Something that engages his mind and makes him think, whatever the genre, really. I'm still convinced it's mysteries, but maybe that's just me wanting to see him try to figure out the culprit. I could also see him going for documentaries or other nonfiction genres.
>What merch do you want of him
I'd love a plushie, especially if I could dress it in different outfits. I've thought about commissioning one, but from my experience they all seem to use the same basic face, and I'd want his to look a little more like him (pointed chin and nose). Maybe I'll try to make one Someday™
Those keychains are super cute too.

Husbando discovers he's standing under mistletoe, describe his reaction and what happens next.
>>
>>3277899
I actually don't think he would ever want to be involved in physical fights. Hard to imagine how he'd fair, he would try to avoid violence as much as possible. He's also not really too /fit/ of a person so he's better off staying away from fights.

>>3277914
I could help him no problem and I definitely would do it even if he insisted he didn't need help.
>emotional support
He's alright at giving people emotional support, he has that gentle reassuring aura. And if he needs to raise his voice to try and snap someone back into their senses he will do it.

>>3277958
My first option would be anything card game related, simple choice is one of the super expensive version of any of the cards he uses in his deck. Or anything useful for handling cards in general like a new rubber playmat with a cool custom design, cool new sleeves etc.
If not that, I'd get him something else generally useful. And maybe some chocolates. For someone who likes coffee and tea though a cute new mug would probably be neat. Actually the idea of drawing a custom mug design with any of his dog units of Royal Paladin sounds fun, I think he'd love that. Now I seriously want to do this.
>What's something he could talk about with you for hours?
Card games of course. We could sit down with some tea/coffee and treats and just talk about strategies and deck builds for hours. And I would enjoy every moment of it. I play so many different clans and deck types there would be so much to discuss and I would love to hear his input since he is a skilled card fighter.

>>3278643
He wouldn't mind a pet I'm sure. He likes animals and is good at taking care of things and being responsible.
>What merch do you want of him
Maybe a Nendo of his updated design. I'm a sucker for cute shit.

>>3278677
If he's standing under it alone and nobody points it out he'll probably just walk past it.

>Do you think he'd want to live somewhere like that, or just visit? Dunno if it'd be too touristy for living in.
Well, Jacket lives in Florida, so he's prabably used to tourism. That's why I think he might want to get away from it when he has a chance to have a break.
>>3276389
>Do you have any older or younger pictures of your husbando?
There sadly aren't any, I wish I could know more about his past. Since, I'm not gonna lie, the future's kinda bleak for him.
This fanart of him and Biker as kids is really cute though.
>What would he think of your hobbies
My hobbies are pretty uninteresting. It's mainly watching movies, which he also likes doing but I'm prabably more of a movie buff then him. Since I go out of my way to watch foreign films and go to film festivals whenever I can.
>How do you feel about art of your husbando looking stressed or sad?
I would be a little bothered by it at first, but I would still save it. It makes him feel like more of a three dimentional person, even though I wish he could always be happy, I feel like sadness is still a valid and healthy emotion to experience.
>>3276596
He likes keep it really simple. Jacket honestly seems like type to wear the same thing everyday, the most variety in his outfits are all the diferent t-shirts he has.
>>3276946
>Has he ever been hurt or betrayed by someone he thought he could depend on?
No, Jacket was really lucky to have such great friends like Beard and his girlfriend. It's just sad that it had to end badly.
>Does he have a way with words, or is he more awkward and inarticulate?
Yeah... I will have to say no to this one. He doesn't have a way with words, at all, he doesn't talk.
>Do you think he'd like Christmas?
He would likely treat Christmas pretty casualy, I can see him having one of those little Christmas trees on his desk. Also since he lives Florida and doesn't have any snow, I'd love to bring him to visit my country so I could show him the real, harsh winters of my ancestors.
>>
>>3277189
Jacket would love shopping at a vhs store (rip) and looking for wierd b movies to watch. He also doesn't seem to be stingy with money, I think it's just the case of him having naturally cheap taste. Which I respect.
>>3277899
Husbando's a pretty tough guy, to say the least.
Unfortunately, I don't think I could protect him or help him, because I'm kinda weak. I would likely just get in his way.
>>3277958
>What would you get him for Christmas?
Maybe a game for his NES or I would bake him something.
>What's something he could talk about with you for hours?
Not sure, I'm probably the more talkative one. So I guess he's forced to listen to me then.
>>3278643
>Would he like pets?
I think he would like pets, but not necessarily want to have one. Since it might make apartment living sort of uncomfortable.
I do want a dog friend at some point of my life, but that's for the future.
>What do you think his favorite film or novel genre would be?
A strange choice but I always thought he would like wierd comedy-horror films like House, the later Evil Dead films, Texas Chainsaw Massacre 2 and of course, arguably my favorite film of all time, Stuart Gordon's masterpiece, Re-Animator.
>What merch do you want of him
A plushie would be really cute, I want a husbando to cuddle with.
>>3278677
Don't think he would notice the mistletoe, I would just give him a kiss and he wouldn't realize why I did it out of nowhere.

>>3276946

I think he’d love Christmas—any holiday for that matter, but I personally think of Christmas as his favorite thanks to his overall winter motif. I think he’d love cuddling up on the couch watching cheesy Christmas movies, and decorating the tree.

>What would you get him?
A nice super soft blue scarf, since he's always wearing one. That or any other cute clothing item would be a safe bet I think.

I actually chuckled at the image of him getting all flustered and embarrassed over this. I imagined him walking into it really hard and smacking his nose, stumbling back and clutching his nose and tearing up a little cause of the pain (I see him as a bit of a crybaby).

>>3278643
>Pets?
I think he’d love them, especially dogs (even though I’m not a big dog person myself, I think he’d find their big dumb charms irresistable).

>What merch do you want?
I’ve been waiting for his 1/4th scale V3 figure since it was teased years ago....... but it seems like it’ll never get made. I really want more scale or prize figures, particularly of his other modules like Cyber Neko (please Cyber Neko—pic related).

He usually tries to sound hard or like the powerful fighter he is, but it usually just comes off as really cute.

Forgot to answer my own question, fug. Crona keeps things simple in that regard, his canon wardrobe is pretty bare-bones. Even given more freedom with what he wears he'd probably keep it that way anyhow. I can see him having just enough to cover his bases - a few mix and match casual outfits, some pajama sets that double as around the house wear, maybe an extra formal getup alongside the one he already has/had, etc.

>>3278627
>I think he'd be glad to hear that
I certainly hope so, I'd be sure to remind him of it. Being able to just vent to someone sympathetic is really a nice thing sometimes.
>and doesn't want to feel like a burden or anything.
Incidentally, I've always felt I'd be the burden when it comes to the thought of sharing my concerns and complaints with him. Obviously pretty much anything I'd have to gripe about pales in comparison to what he's been through, so it feels a little unfair to dump it on him knowing that. But I suppose mutual support's the whole point of a relationship, even if it might be a tad lopsided in this instance.

>>3278643
>pets
Yes and no; I think he'd like a pet but at the same time would be a little afraid of having one in his care given his negative prior experiences with small animals. It's something we could work through with time, I suppose.
>merch
I'd love a scale/prize fig or a plushie like I said earlier, a Nendo would be cute too. Hell I'd even settle for a Funko, heretical as that may be to say. Soul and Maka have one each and they look alright, seems it'd be the only shot of getting anything tangible now since the series has been over for so long.

>>3278677
Doubt he'd know the significance of it unless it was explained to him, he'd probably briefly wonder what it is before continuing about his day. If I was with him I'd be more than happy to tell him what's up, and follow up with a kiss as an example of course.

Not really. Towards the very end he refers to wanting to see Maka one last time as a "frightful obsession" that he's "repulsed" by, so he might consider it as such, but I'd beg to differ.
>verbal tics or patterns?
He tends to stutter, especially when he's nervous or flustered. Yes and yes, I find it endearing. Would hope he's not too bothered by it though, I know as well as anything how embarrassing a stutter can be. Here's a clip I posted a bit ago - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YCa5_CUZgUY
>Does he collect anything?
Uhh, souls, sorta. Otherwise I don't see him being much of a collector, there's a few things I think he'd like to have around but not really to the point of actively collecting.

Christmas is coming up, what kind of gifts might your husbando give? Would he spend lavishly on fancy presents or would he prefer to keep it more simple?

Since he ends up a king, probably would go more fancy.

He says "eh?" a lot, and makes the cutest sounds when he's confused. I love them so much. Clip: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1T86IU2RLOY
He's also slurred his words a couple of times; "damare" sounded like "babare," and "petenshi" like "pepenshi." I think maybe he was just too flustered and upset to get the words out right. Fans love referencing those.

Not as far as I know, although I think he'd have a decent number of books.
>>3279696
>Christmas is coming up, what kind of gifts might your husbando give? Would he spend lavishly on fancy presents or would he prefer to keep it more simple?
He'd overthink it and either get something great or a little off, and lean towards overspending. Personally, I'd rather give him a big list for him to choose a couple of things from. That way, he doesn't have to worry about getting something wrong, and there's still some surprise to it.
>>3279711
>How would you and your husbando celebrate the new year? Staying at home or going out to parties? Sober or drunk?
Full disclosure: I hate new year's. On the other hand, I've never celebrated a Japanese new year, so I think we could do that together and have some fun. I want to make mochi with him. Hopefully we could split the difference between parties (which he'd prefer, I think) and celebrating at home (which I'd prefer).

I'm pretty happy with what I have now, actually. It'd be nice to get orbs like the p5 characters did but I'll be comm a manjuu and I think that'll satisfy that desire.
>>3278627
You could always go the doujin route! I've made a few wallscrolls, helps fill the void a little. Yes exactly; he sometimes enjoys just listening to someone else talk but he's alright with comfortable silence and I love that about him. It's an underappreciated thing I feel, to be okay with sitting quietly and simply enjoying the presence of another person. He spends a lot of time in the dorm watching cooking shows and reading magazines, and he tends to dote on the dorm dog with the stuff he learns; it really is the best.

Official collaboration cafe food based on him is usually desserts like cakes and ice cream. While it would be cute if he had a sweet tooth, it’s obvious he got sweets only because they really wanted to add cherries. It’s a shame I’ll never try them out but maybe buying Rerorero Candy online is actually possible, thanks for the idea.

Scenic considering his experience but I think he’d be interested in both as long as it’s new places that can impress him.

Not a neat freak but I imagine he’d be on organized side.
>>3276235
His sunglasses are actual merch and come with a cleaning cloth that looks like his handkerchief that was shown during the very first appearance. One of things I have yet to get. The earrings are more of “couple look” type of goods, they’re heavily redesigned even if they still keep the cherry motif. I also own a white scarf that reminds me of his and while it's cringeworthy, I like to pretend it’s the one he wore.
>>3276244
No. Just no. Knowing how “many” get his personality right, I want to stay blissfully ignorant to such stuff.

Not my thing. Bittersweet art that respects him and shows his growth as a person is fine, considering his backstory and all. But most artwork of such kind is in the “getting off to suffering” direction.

Official alternative clothing artwork isn’t done by Araki, it’s always anime staff members but it seems like his whole wardrobe is green.

>glass door
Probably makes the “eyes become pitch black” face JoJo characters do and then acts like nothing happened. Maybe stays surprised for a bit, trying to comprehend what happened. But if he got flustered like the only blushing panel he has, that would be super cute. He didn’t show such emotions much but he’s still capable of them, so it’s a fun thing to imagine.
>>3277899
It’s almost all he did in his series and considering the physical difference, even if I do always say how I want to protect him and his smile (which is true) I’d be useless in a fight.
>>3277914
Now that’s something I hope I could do but I’d rather have him safe and sound. It hurt to see him get injured in canon and not being able to do anything for him.
>emotional support
He’d be the first one I’d turn to when I need help or advice, thanks to his honest and logical, yet caring nature. I’d trust him and feel much better just by having him around.

His speech pattern still confuses me, in some situations he goes from polite to crude in seconds. Losing temper against enemies is one thing but once he dropped -san when calling out to Abdul during a battle (it was a tense moment, so he talked without thinking? Yet he used keigo to Polnareff, out of all people in a really emotional one) and then went back like nothing happened. Even in Line game some of his lines were written in a polite manner but others had a more casual tone. I saw Japanese fans mention it as well, so I suppose it’s not me overthinking over little details or having misunderstandings because of my knowledge for once. There are other examples and it’s always interesting to think how much it adds to his character. As for voice, I love the gap between his rough sounding “fighting mode” and more gentle one he uses when talking to his friends. Hirarin did a great job portraying the contrast.
>>3276946
Seeing how it’s mostly a romantic holiday that’s about spending the day with your lover or at least friends and family in Japan, I’m not sure if he had positive memories of it. But I hope it would change if he survived or we were together.
>>3277958
I’d pay extra attention to things he mentions about a month or so before the day! Anything new he’s interested in, games he’s looking forward to, something he wants and the like, just to surprise him. Wish I knew what kind of presents he'd give though.
>>3278677
He’d probably have little time to react, I’d already be standing there on tiptoes.
>>3279711
New Year is the biggest event of the year where I live, he’d probably be surprised to see how loud people get here when he’s used to a more calm way of celebrating it. I would love to experience it the Japanese way, mochi and hatsumode included.

I draw my own fanart all the time...not so much posting it online though. Never drawn a daki. I just like doing portraits, his expressions are fun and his hair is fun to draw. It's like the paper crane story. You draw your husbando 1,000 times he becomes 3d.
Eventually I'll be less shitty.
I should post online as a backup if nothing else... not sure whether pixiv or tumblr. I have some japanese ability so pixiv is feasible but i like tumblr's post style better. problem is as your own artist you notice your own flaws in each piece. it's better to see it from other people, their mistakes don't bother you as much as your own.

He survived for a whole year fighting in the pits against and was chosen because he was deemed the strongest warrior of them all, so yeah, pretty good. He's a natural protector for sure.
>>3278430
That the final season of this show ended up being such a massive clusterfuck where half the cast including him was acting horribly OOC has actually made me feel ultra-protective on his behalf. I used to find it silly to get so worked up on behalf of a fictional character's wellbeing, especially since they clearly don't "belong" to you, but now I'm on the other side of that glass, and seeing them fuck it up this badly is painful in a way I've never experienced before. We're probably never going to get anything more from these characters, yet this is the note we have to end on. So I can't help but think about him all the time now that it's all over, what could've been, what should've been, filling in the gaps, etc. Waifuism is a scary drug.
>>3276946
He's lucky not to have had to experience that directly; if anything he's the one forced to betray, sort of. No doubt it was a horrible weight on him, and probably why he's so unfair to his "other self" even though having access to Kuron's memories means he should know he sincerely meant well and was under mind control. It's his way of living with the guilt, by compartamentalizing it onto the other man. It's cruel but a way to cope especially in such a stressful period. Hopefully as time goes on he'd come to reevaluate the man whose body he now lives in and whom he shares his memories with.
He's good with inspirational speeches, but probably not a natural at it. He's got lots of experience and learning from the people who were there for him in his formative years. In person he's a lot more spontaneous and likely struggles to come up with the right thing to say at times.
If Christmas is a thing that still exists in his time, for sure. He'd probably be a spoilsport for the Santa believers though.

>Does he have any gap moe traits or hobbies?
I think gap moe means something that is cute, but unexpected for the character? In that case, I don't think he's "gap moe", just regular moe. He's the pitcher for his high school baseball team, but because of bullying in his previous school, he's very shy and nervous and has no confidence. His only hobby is baseball as far as I know.
>What's his place in his source material, how does he effect the plot and the other characters?
He's the main character. He's kind of the baby of the team, so everybody has to look out for him and support him so that he can pitch well. It's very sweet seeing their relationships.
>Does he have any close friends? If he does, what is their friendship like and how do they treat eachother?
The first character that comes to mind is the catcher, Abe (on the right in pic related). Abe is kind of rude and impatient, and he and Mihashi constantly misunderstand one another, but Mihashi respects him a lot and they work well together as a battery & try to work through their differences.

Every time he brings up a bright smile and nods in agreement at the same time he makes the cutest "un!" sound to it and it kills me.

Can't be an active card game player without also being a card collector at the same time, unless he straight out sells or gives forward all his outdated cards he doesn't need anymore.

We're both people who cherish our families as something very important and fun to be with so I could see us possibly just staying at our families for new years. And well, I try not to think of these "what if we were together" scenarios because while they are a wonderful daydream topic and make my heart flutter my brain is too set on being realistic.
But if we were together for new years I could see us just having something to drink and enjoying each other's company, watch the fireworks and all that. He'd be the more sober one and probably find it amusing how I suddenly get super open and talkative when tipsy.

I always go back home for Christmas so I don't really do much. I always have a thing for bringing my Aichi plush together with me and just having it sit on my desk there with a santa hat on, it's cute. I also do spend a bit of time doodling cute Christmas bando on paper.

I found a nice edition of Macbeth, so I got that.

Lot of random stuff, space, the meaning of life, silly rants, literature, and so on. He's definitely someone I couldn't get bored with. We'd also comfortably ignore each other at times.

A poster or some artwork, as well as physical copies of the manga and even the novels (even if they're in Japanese)

>plushie
Go for it, sounds awesome.

>mistletoe
Depends a lot on his mood. If down, he'd probably just glare at it and walk away. If he's in good spirits though, welp, someone's definitely getting one hell of a kiss (love that it's canon he's awesome at that). Bonus points if he laughs at how corny it is while going all the way.

Crona would probably buy simple but thoughtful and heartfelt gifts, the kind that aren't fancy or expensive but clearly have a lot of care behind them and are just heartwarming to receive. Would love to see what he might pick out for me.

>>3279711
We'd probably just stay at home and watch the tv special(s), if anything. It's not a big holiday for me and I don't think he'd be too into it either, maybe for the first few years of us being together since it'd be new to him but I imagine the novelty would wear off sooner or later.

>>3279807
>If it helps at all, I doubt Crona would feel the same way.
No worries, I'm pretty certain of it myself. He's too much of a sweetheart to feel truly bothered by stuff like that. I just like to maintain perspective when it comes to these kinds of things, trying to be considerate of him and where he comes from and all.

>>3279817
I do, it's nice to have an excuse to bake something and sorta enjoyable to play around with getting everything set up just right. In general, it's fun to see all the setups and how everyone decorates theirs, the different waifus and husbandos that pop up for the occasion, et al. It's a fun tradition and one of a few things other than the drawthreads I still go to /a/ for.

>>3280261
>mixtape
That'd be a really neat and creative gift, classic and kinda quirky. Trading mixtapes you made for each other would be fun for an anniversary or holiday, I think.

>>3280286
>while it's cringeworthy, I like to pretend it’s the one he wore.
Not cringeworthy at all, I think it's nice to have things like that around. I'd like to find a jumper similar to Crona's myself, I've seen a few but never in the right size. That Nendo is adorable by the way.

>bringing my Aichi plush together with me and just having it sit on my desk there with a santa hat on
Aw, that's really cute.

>>3280906
Certain people swear up and down he's canonically trans/nonbinary but I'm not buying it. The author's comment of "even I dunno lololol", which they cite as the holy grail of evidence for their case, was a throwaway remark made in the context of a time when there wasn't such a hyperfocus on identity politics. So while it technically is unconfirmed to this day, to assert one's interpretation as hard fact on the grounds of a jokey offhand quip from several years ago is silly. As is to be expected of fandomites I guess.
>growth
In the anime he grows quite a bit, developing his own sense of agency and taking it upon himself to right his mistakes in spite of his own trepidation. The manga is a little more dicey in that regard. While ultimately the same growth is attained -he still forges friendships, experiences some success in a more normal setting, and uses his abilities for good- his encounter with his mother sets off a different chain of events and he ends up losing a lot of it along the way. He does retain/regain/even improve upon some degree of said growth but by that point all he can do is essentially save everyone but himself. It does showcase one of the qualities I love about him though, his resilience. It's pretty amazing he'd have any independent presence at all by that point, let alone have the will and means to make such a huge sacrifice solely for the sake of his friend. Him having the heart to do so is a testament to how good-natured, or at very least selfless he is.
>unresolved
The whole matter of him being stuck in an unknown state on the moon, for one. I guess the gender thing too, not that any possibility of that bothers me at all but it would be nice to see the argument finally put to rest.

>>3280996

I finally gave the Christmas with waifu/husbando thing a shot https://imgur.com/MF2upEm
It was fun but a bit frustrating to get the lighting to do right
Any of you less artistically inclined husbandofriends use character creators to make your husbando? https://imgur.com/xbiGIna
I find it kind of amusing trying to make him with a limited set of tools.
>How would you and your husbando celebrate the new year? Staying at home or going out to parties? Sober or drunk?
He would most likely want to go drinking with friends at the stray sheep that would be fun but I would try to get him to switch it up every now and them. But whatever we do hes having his new years drink haha.

-Question Time-
>Does he have a favorite color or one you associate with him

Anytime a character creator gets big I can't help but screw around with them a bit, yeah. They're fun. Also cute deito, glad you could join us.
>does he have a favorite color
Nothing stated, but his palette was designed to be in contrast with the rest of the main casts' cooler colors so I tend to associate warmer, earthier tones with him.
>is there an animal
Dogs and wolves equally.
>>3281072

>>3280906
>common misconception
That he's explosive angry; for some reason he's often portrayed as such despite it being regularly shown that's he's very calm/collected and a conflict decelerator. Even when he's furious he'll just take a breath and walk away to fume it off.
>what kind of growth
He had stagnated in terms of growth in the main story, he'd since reached his final resolution and aside from his SLink in p3p didn't really experience any. In his Slink though he moves past his desire to die and actively looks forward to the future though he doesn't say it directly.
>is there anything unresolved
I feel like everything unanswered about his backstory and what happened in his survival timeline is unresolved.
New years soon; how would he feel about the festivities? Would he enjoy going all out or prefer something more controlled? Would he actually stay up past midnight or would he pass out early? Would he drink or is he the DD? What do you think some of his resolutions might be?

Hey, Merry Xmas to you too.

>>3280906
As far as reasonable ones? Probably that he's way older than he really is. He's wise for his years but he's still ridiculously young, barely mid 20s. That might seem old to literal children, and the hair doesn't help, but by normal standards he's an overachieving baby. Too young to have gone through as much as he did. Another is that he literally raised his best friend since early childhood like he was his adoptive father when they only knew each other for a couple of (impressionable) years beforehand.

His greatest fear after not being to achieve everything he wanted before dying young is that his trauma left him too broken to function and protect those he cares for. He does his best, he's still generally a sweet guy overall, but these two traits together can drive him to overcompensate. He's a terrible backseat driver, and it takes literally ripping him from his seat of authority to force him to eventually back down. He's still restless afterward, but he eventually learns to accept that he doesn't always have to be on the front lines to be useful and is fine captaining from the back row.

Unfortunately the last season introduced a ton of questions it never bothered to answer AND the EPs refuse to ever talk to the fandom again. But chief among them is the dreaded literal last-second love interest. Don't get me wrong, the guy is cute and all, and it's great he got a good ending, I don't want to sound ungrateful or anything, but the circumstances make it an obvious case of sloppy corporate-mandated PR bandaid that doesn't jive well with his established personality so it just creates bigger problems. Another outstanding question is how retrieving his transforming weapon was a huge plot point in the early seasons. It made sense to have no answer because he "died", but he came back so that they still never let him use it now looks silly. Especially since it's said the form it takes gives insight on the user.

I'm very behind so I'm not going to quote a bunch of posts this time. I'm sorry.

It's stressful and annoying in the moment, I'll admit, but I like looking back on it later, so I still do it. Shit just seems to go wrong every time.
I think it's a sweet way to show your affection, I always look forward to the threads.
>>3279972
I think I've answered both of these before, so I'll just say that the thought of him listening to popular 60s music in his room is too cute. I bet he would have books stacked around everywhere, too.
>>3280533
I rarely had any, to be honest. Or maybe I just forgot. Funny thing is, I had a little bit of a crush on Kaiji before I saw Yukio.
>>3280906
>common misconception
That he's nothing more than a tsundere crybaby uke, but paring down a character to a bare-bones, fuckable prototype is just fujo standard operating procedure.
Non-fujo fans often think he's a coward, that upsets me more. "Misconception" is a matter of opinion here, I suppose, but it's not one I can stomach myself. Some of it's just personal opinion about what makes a coward, and how the word is thrown around a little too lightly, but I won't get into that.
>character growth
He doesn't grow, really. He's stubborn enough not to reconsider his worldviews after one or two bad experiences, even when he should.
>Is there anything still unresolved in his story?
Yukio's part is finished. There's something else I'm waiting to see, but that's a big spoiler.
>>3280996
>Sorry for skipping through, bit overwhelmed by other things but this helps.
I'm doing the same for the same reason, don't feel bad.
>>3281435
>Does he have a favorite color or one you associate with him
I associate him with pink too. With that shirt, how could I not? Gave me a new appreciation for the color, really.
>Is there and animal you associate him with
Birds and, through fan osmosis, rabbits. Though if he were in Animal Crossing, he'd be a wolf, 100%.
>>
I love this image but
>wearing your sunglasses to bed

>>3281526
>new year's
He'd enjoy it, I think, although I don't know if he'd be into the more traditional celebrations. I always saw him as a modern guy who'd shy away from that a bit. I feel like he'd go for something in the middle, maybe a smallish party? He's had to stay up late for games, I'm sure he could handle staying up for New Year's. Although I guess it depends on how much he drinks, and he's definitely gonna drink.
I imagine him resolving to get a better job, move up in life financially, that sort of thing.

Does his source ever show him dreaming? What are his dreams like? Any recurring patterns?
How persuasive is he? How persuasive does he think he is?
Would he eat frozen food without bothering to thaw it first?

>character creators
I've used a few here and there but I can never seem to get him quite right, don't have the patience to really delve into them like some people do.
>animal you associate him with
Rabbit would probably be the closest to a canonical association, I think of him as being much more catlike though.

>>3281526
Like I said earlier, I don't think he'd mind the hubbub but wouldn't be super into it either. I could see him staying up, going by some scenes in his series it seems like that wouldn't be particularly difficult or unusual for him. Doubt he'd drink but I'm not sure if he'd be keen on driving in general, heh. Resolutions are an interesting thought, I think there's a lot he'd want to improve on. Perhaps something along the lines of working on his anxiety, or just being more "good" in general. Maybe I'd gently suggest viewing himself in a more positive light.

>>3281779
>dreaming
Not outright shown, but I can't imagine he'd dream of anything pleasant. Sleep in general seems like it'd be rough for him, between that and the allusions made to sleep deprivation "punishment" used against him at some point. I guess it's another thing for us to work on improving together.
>persuasive
Surprisingly so, but he has to be very passionate about the issue to be willing to assert his position. Doubt he'd think of himself as being very persuasive, and to be fair he normally isn't.
>Would he eat frozen food without bothering to thaw it first?
First I've heard of that. Don't think he would, though I can see him being somewhat bemused by the concept of frozen/instant meals initially.

I completely missed this but yes, I always try, even if never really works. I'd just really love to play as him in a game, stupid as it likely sounds.

I feel bad for wanting to skip this question when everyone’s giving such detailed answers but I feel like I ranted about the mistranslations of his profile that became a poor justification to force personality he doesn’t have and memes that were taken too far more than enough to the point of becoming annoying already. Same goes for his personality/speech pattern changes and the mysterious chapter with longer backstory that I wrote about some time ago. It still hurts that Araki didn’t want to give any details away and just mentioned having plot ready for it, what a tease. However when it comes to unresolved and unanswered stuff, I’m still curious about the abilities he had in early chapters. They were never used again, save it for D13 battle when he still ended up possessing the Stand as it was the only way to win against the enemy. Araki probably just forgot or changed his mind about them but I really like the idea of husbando refusing to use abilities that relate to controlling others exactly because it’s close to what he hates the most and unpleasant experience in the beginning of SC. It’s just a shitty headcanon-tier assumption but that’s the only logical explanation I could think of based on his personality.
>>3281435
>character creators
They shouldn’t be so addicting! But it’s all fun and games until I get to the hair options. Usually it’s pretty hard to recreate his hairstyle, so I have to use side ponytails to make at least something to resemble his bangs.
>Colour
Obviously green!
>Animal
I didn’t really think of it much but when Kemono Friends were on peak of popularity, one of animators drew this “Stand user Friend” that I suppose is a fox. Probably the most bizarre piece of art from staff members I have. But I love it exactly because it’s the most unexpected crossover ever.

I imagine he’d celebrate it traditional way and from what I know, most people there usually go to sleep pretty fast once it hits midnight. I wonder if he’s the type to watch any of yearly NY special shows and what would his favourites be? But most importantly, now I have an excuse to post this piece of him in hatsumode getup again. I love it, especially how he managed to put an emerald even on kimono.
>>3281779
>Dreams
Sadly the only times we see him dreaming weren’t exactly pleasant thanks to Mannish Boy. Still, thanks to these chapters I found out he’s the type to sleep in pajamas and saw him wake up and rub his eyes/squint in the morning after being overwhelmed by sudden light in adaptation. Maybe the situation wasn’t fitting to think of moe things but I couldn’t help it. Seeing such gestures felt pretty good, maybe because of how mundane they are. Makes it even easier to imagine him in everyday situations thanks to such little things.
>How persuasive is he?
Personally I think he’s pretty good, always giving solid reasoning and whatnot when he tries to make someone do the right thing. It wasn’t always easy but I’m glad others listened when it counted the most.
>Would he eat frozen food without bothering to thaw it first?
I think he wouldn’t, for some reason I imagine him to be the type to enjoy his meals properly.
>>3281074
Thank you! Once I saw pajamas that looked exactly like his and I’m surprised I managed to resist the urge to get them. Now I regret not doing it, even though I’d have no actual use for them. Hopefully you manage to find the jumper one day, good luck!

Hopefully everyone had a great Christmas and is looking forward to New Year celebrations, it was nice to recognize some of you in the holiday collage.

>>3280906
>misconception
A lot of people treat him as a trap or worse. I can brush it off since it's a thing that has been going on since 2011 but it's a reason why I haven't bothered to really read VG threads ever since I actually grew feelings for him. I understand he is feminine to some extent but I don't really see him as someone who'd enjoy that type of stuff. In the end he's just a regular dude with some feminine mannerism and a pretty face, and he's just fine the way he is.
>growth
He started as someone very awkward and shy, someone who seriously lacked confidence in himself and was often bullied and beat up in school. He eventually grows emotionally much stronger and braver as he gains friends who back him up. He and his best friends end up being well known for being a really good card fighting team and he's clearly much more sound with himself after the time skip in G.

>>3281435
>Does he have a favorite color or one you associate with him
Blue is generally his main color for various things.
>Is there and animal you associate him with
Dog, due to how dog-heavy his VG clan is and how he seems to like dogs even outside the game. He's also by nature a very loyal friend to anyone he holds important in his life and does all he can to protect them, reminds me of puppers.

>>3281526
His way of celebrating new years would definitely be more controlled. He's not completely opposed to alcohol if the spin off manga is anything to go by so he could maybe enjoy a glass or two of something but not go overboard. He would be one of those people who wants to make sure all his friends are doing alright through the festivities.
His resolution would probably have something to do with people he cares about or just wanting to better himself in any way.

>Does he have any gap moe traits or hobbies?
I would say his weak spot for children and his protective side towards his younger brother are very gap moe.
>What's his place in his source material, how does he effect the plot and the other characters?
Kaiba impacts the plot in both the obvious ways (he's the main character's rival) and the less obvious, subtle ways. If it weren't for him creating rules in Battle City, they'd still be playing without rules. If it weren't for his technology, the duels would be far less exciting and dynamic.
>Does he have any close friends? If he does, what is their friendship like and how do they treat eachother?
Haha, friends.

>>3280906
>Misconception
People simplify him too much into disgusting exaggurated extremes, either he's a heartless monster incapable of love or he's a poor misunderstood tsundere babby with an orphan past. I find that annoying aswell as the people who just go on about his looks. I guess it's not hard to annoy me with misconceptions when I spend every waking moment thinking about, analysing, and deeply caring for his character.

>Growth
Kaiba's growth is definitely more subtle than others in the series and that's something I actually like about him, he knows who he is and he doesn't change it for others. But comparing him from the start to the finish of the anime you can clearly see that he's matured but he he's still the Kaiba I always loved.

>Unresolved
I do wonder what happened at the end of DSOD. I hope he was able to beat Atem in a duel as his simulations predicted, to get the closure he needed. I'd like to thank Takahashi for making a "4 years in the future" picture so we can at least see what he's up to now, and so people can stop saying he died.
>>
>>3275066
>Does he have any gap moe traits or hobbies?

He thinks not phones are phones, clumsy as fuck, and has a bit of an anger issue

>What's his place in his source material, how does he effect the plot and the other characters?

Hes a villain, he fights another antagonist but never really fully fights any of the protagonists.

>Does he have any close friends? If he does, what is their friendship like and how do they treat eachother?

Hes close with no one but his boss. He follows orders to a T (when he remmebers them) and the boss calls him cute often which i love

It's Jan 2nd, I'm going to try and blergh out what I can before falling asleep. I answered at least half the first thread and read most of the second through, but couldn't make words in time. I might make an effort to backtrack if I catch up here. Will have to drop some of the replies to people; god it's a mess. My browser's in a state too after 5~ hours of Wayback diving, but I found some "new" stuff and a few pages I expected to be awful but turned out to be a nice read.

>>3275066
There's a temptation to say that no, there's no gap moe, the moe is all up front, in the open and totally expected, but that's not really true. There's a gap moe that's not your conventional contrast - the happy-go-lucky, cutesy face is the initial impression, while his morose, tired, self-hating side is the contrast. It's a cruel thing to attach the word moe to, but there's two decades worth of evidence that people really feel something towards it. So I'd posit that those protective urges are signs of moe. He's someone who's always lending a helping hand, the strongest and most reliable guardian, always giving pick me ups to other people, constantly smiling and making a fuss over silly things, but on the other side of that is a fragile old man who needs help himself.

He's the main character of his source material, but after having his backstory arc the most recent focuses on the second protag on both sides. The other characters have formed a kind of family around him, and acknowledge that part of what keeps them together is looking out for him. I think more than that he drags them into each other's off time so no one's alone for long. If you read more deeply into the plot you'll notice there's a lot of coincidences and overlaps that strongly suggest all of them were brought together for a reason, and this is briefly confirmed by a few lines of dialogue. I think while he's the centre and driver of the plot he can't resolve it without them either provoking him to action or carrying him.

>Does he have any gap moe traits or hobbies?
Yeah he seems like an evil, intimidating, and maybe kind of dumb henchman at first. In fact, he really plays it up too, but this facade starts to fall apart after some time. He was experimented on and treated like an object for 10 years, losing out on a decade of young adulthood. He's understandably very very angry but in his heart he just wants his pain to be acknowledged, for something to come of it (get ajin rights). I think this is why he so affected by Naomi Li's apology.

>What's his place in his source material, how does he effect the plot and the other characters?
He's Satou's, the main antagonist, sidekick; he became that way when Satou saved him from years of being experimented on. Eventually, he and Satou decide to take revenge on the people who imprisoned him, only Satou is in on it because he's bored. Tanaka takes it very seriously. The whole story kinda starts as a result of the consequences of what happened to him.

>Does he have any close friends? If he does, what is their friendship like and how do they treat eachother?
Kinda but not really. Eventually Satou recruits a group and Tanaka interacts with them which is kinda fun because Tanaka is so serious and the other members are way more laid back and like to get high. For a long time he and satou were THE pair and a lot of fun to watch but Tanaka changed a lot after Naomi's apology

Asking a few questions, hope they haven't been asked before:

If your husbando was taking you out on a surprise date, what kind of date do you think he'd plan?

What's his greatest skill? Is it something he can say he's better than everyone else at?

>>3276235
>Do you have any physical items like something he'd have, something to make you think of him?
I have his jacket and I pretty religiously wear black turtlenecks in the winter, feels like getting an all over body warm hug from him when I go out. I also wear jewellery related to him and have a lot of his merchandise (often take it out with me too) to remind me of him at all times.

>>3277321
>Do you two share any flaws?
Pretty much all of them. It's part of why we work so well together, the parts of us that can't work together with others just equal out together. I always like to describe us as two broken puzzle pieces that found a match, since we never fit with anyone else.
>Imagine him walking into a glass door. How does he react? How does he recover?
Hides his shame by ordering Isono to replace the door, insisting it was a flaw in the door's design.
>Does he wake up before his alarm goes off, or does he sleep through it?
Kaiba is both a night owl and an early riser, he practically has a built in alarm clock so he doesn't need it. He can even run on no sleep if he wants to.

>working on his anxiety, or just being more "good" in general

Just make them put decals over it, like they do to stop birds from flying into glass doors. Just don't tell him I said that.

>How persuasive is he? How persuasive does he think he is?
Above average, but not anything spectacular. He's a sensible man and makes good points, but he's not convincing anybody that up is down.
Maybe getting into a yakuza boss's good graces made him think himself a little more persuasive, but I believe he'd chalk it up to the strength and utility of his methods more than anything.
>Would he eat frozen food without bothering to thaw it first?
He wouldn't, but he'd watch me do it and judge me.

>>3283387
>If your husbando was taking you out on a surprise date, what kind of date do you think he'd plan?
Depending on how far along in the relationship we're assuming this takes place, we'd either go somewhere too loud and crowded for my taste, or somewhere a little calmer. I don't think it's about him being insensitive or anything, just that I think he'd have specific hangups about how a date "should" go. Feeling like he has to impress, go somewhere cool and fancy and popular, spend too much, and so on.
If we're at the point where the relationship's long-established and he can relax a bit more, maybe we could do a little cafe date or something. Shit, I'd be happy just going for a walk with him, and I'd tell him as much.
>What's his greatest skill? Is it something he can say he's better than everyone else at?
He's got the strongest mathematical mind in the series, and no one else has photographic memory (although Ichikawa can remember the pond tiles because, well, he's blind and he has to). It's just that mahjong, especially against underworld yakuza and other scammers, takes more than cut-and-dried calculations to win.

Does reading people's posts here make you want to pick up the husbando's source? Or even like them more than you might have? I've done this a couple of times, just curious if anyone else had the same experience.

The flowers are such a nice detail and really well drawn, I love that you managed to get the varying hues in so naturally. I wish I had that composition sense.
Let me know if I overstep the bounds talking about him or any other husbandos, but I get this feeling if we ever saw Yukio's family or friends it'd be a big revelation, even if it's as expected. He's kind of got that school teacher vibe where you only see him at work and him existing outside of that blows your mind. Like you'll bump into him at the shops buying the same thing as you and for no real reason that's an exciting development. Y'know that one guy? He's also a human being who eats things and avoids answering the phone just like us. What a crazy world we live in.

>>3275139
You make a great point bringing up his stand and that 1st meeting. He's cheeky but he never intends to cause harm, his psyche wants to put things right that strongly. It's ingrained in him more than just wanting to be that mysterious figure who helps strangers. I wonder if he'd have grown up more cautious if he didn't have that extra leeway, but pondering personalities without stands is a chicken and egg argument - even when his stand can't be used he's rushing to find other ways to make amends. That's who he is.

Oh gosh. That's beautiful. I'm glad to see gardening come up because it's so uncommon in fiction and I'm not at all biased, honest.

I tend to take a photo for myself on his birthday since it's too far spaced from any big waifu events and they never come out that nice. To be honest I started doing them before I knew there were threads, because there were some dabbing tears and offering food jokes going around (2009ish?), so in the end it's just me, a pile of miniature apple pies, and some picture of him. The creepy part is that in recent years my family keeps buying the apple pies on that week without knowing. I check the fridge for cream to go with them and they're already in the house.

Cont. because I can't help replying to people, woops. On a number of years Pancake Day landed really close so I was able to covertly make heart shaped pancakes and then just, lots and lots of pancakes because there's no way to make a small amount of crepe batter with one egg. Maybe I shouldn't have been making pancakes in the middle of the night and getting butterscotch sauce everywhere but I think the excuse worked and now everyone thinks I'm very serious about Pancake Day. It was easier at uni when I could bake and cook whenever and whatever I wanted, now I can't even get flowers without a story to explain them.

As an odd aside, I've always felt if he were a Pokemon he would be a raichu, so when the English localisation for Sun & Moon decided to change 'raichu ate too many malasada' to 'raichu ate all the pancakes forever and became a pancake' it felt like a strange act of fate.

I think more than just your set ups I'm jealous of your resolve and tenacity that led to them being possible.

>>3275352
I try not to make a habit of purposefully rewatching or reading it, because when I have it feels forced or simply reminds me that nothing changes or renews. I can't set a date and decide I'm going back through everything. I end up doing it pretty much every time I've written for waifu threads though, not entire episodes or volumes, but skimming and back and forth. I prefer that feeling because I want to continue looking then, I can put it down whenever I'm not engaging with it. I think I've spotted things I hadn't seen before far more doing that than doing it properly, but I do feel like I neglect some parts of the story and ought to make an effort to branch out more so I stop forgetting bits.

I hate to admit it but I probably have reread/watched Kyoto arc the most out of anything. I always talk like I hate doing it, but I suppose it's an inevitability. At least in the manga it ends with a party. Fuck you anime non-ending, you could have partied.

Oof, this one hits close. Because of his regenerative abilities his skin is immaculate, absolutely free of scars or blemishes and doesn't stay cut (or blown into chunks with how he shields people) for long, however there are three scars that will always remain. Their significance can't be fully explained, it's presumed they're death marks - the final wounds inflicted at the moment he died - but if that were the case for all souls then you'd see them on other characters too (especially poor Kazusa). The circumstances don't add up so it's possible they're something more than mere scars, hell, the formation they take in several instances look like the kanji for king and I am all for blaming Enma Daiou for everything wrong in his life. Either way, he hates them and he refuses to let other people see them. I used to be pretty secretive about it, couldn't say anything on the subject around pictures of him or just talk frankly on it because I felt he wouldn't want that - but it was like bottling it up. I got antsy not being able to talk about that side of him; it's important to who he is and to telling others how to treat him respectfully. I got upset with people because of stuff they couldn't have known because I wasn't clear about it, and at that point it really felt like my own fault.

The easiest way to deal with it is to talk really matter of factly about it and not think about feelings. If I bring him personally into it it still tears me up, because this is the shadow that looms over everything. It's not an elephant in the room so much as a great big rock crushing down on him in everything he does. It's something you don't learn til vol 5/7, and I guess for people who never make it that far it has no bearing on what they think of him, they don't see it, but I think it moulds everything about him from the start. You only have to look for it.

Oh and for an arc he had a dumb X mark on his back from a demon, it looked good but hurt like a bitch. Not worth it.

They would be rare and fairly sporadic, but if I had brought up someplace I'd wanted to try in passing or we found a nice place to have some privacy he'd remember and bring it up later for us to do.

>how persuasive is he
He's a nagger, but doesn't like to push people; though that aside he actually does an alright job at talking people many times into what they need. He probably doesn't think much, maybe that he isn't persuasive but is just telling them what they need to hear.
>would he eat frozen food
That would be a cardinal sin and he'd probably rather starve than eat something unthawed.

I just finished the last season and wew. They dropped the ball in almost every possible way especially in regards to Shiro. What a disappointment, I'm sorry it ended like that dude. He deserves a lot better.

Do you often feel like you over analyze his source/add on materials in an attempt to get to know him better? Or do you think it's like an ocean and there's no end to the depth that can be found?
Does the analyzing carry over to any other parts of his series or is it limited to him?

This seems to be a problem that has largely passed by now. When I look at older sites, I see it a lot. Nowadays I just get people reciting the same tired joke to me on a regular basis but it's not all that bad.

>Do you often feel like you over analyze his source/add on materials in an attempt to get to know him better? Or do you think it's like an ocean and there's no end to the depth that can be found?
I wouldn't say I overanalyse like it's a bad thing, but I probably do overanalyse the small things. I just love noticing really small things about him that anyone else would miss, picking out small details and wondering what it says about him. There's probably going to be a point where I can't pick out anything else but I'll keep revisiting his source and trying forever.
>Does the analyzing carry over to any other parts of his series or is it limited to him?
Mostly just anything connected to him. I love the series but I don't have that same drive to really dig into the other characters or other parts of the series unless it relates to him.

I feel like I always need this disclaimer: the anime's art is so bad at times, there's QUALITY in the settei for his expressions, and the majority of it is outfits traced over the same base model but you can scroll through and watch the faces and ahoge wander about. In the final home release there's a fullscreen shot of him with key features uncoloured, and at least four instances where characters have two mouths at once. One time he had no mouth at all. I've never found settei for Wakaba and Terazuma aside from rough sketches added to the side of a height chart either, which really adds to the fandom joke of Det. Not-Appearing-In-This-Anime. Just forget more than half the cast of the story, it's no big deal.

This height chart for the final arc has the most personality, and Hisoka isn't wearing double denim.

>>3275907
He has a sweet tooth, but also has a thing for noxiously strong flavours. Hot sauce, strong cheese, spice, tart fruits, rich anythings. I'm not sure if he's drawn to expensive meats because he likes them or because he can't afford them. Bland food must be a turn off.

He works mostly in cities, and while he'd be happy to have access to shops and cafes, he's terrible for getting lost in crowds and at navigating streets. He's shown to really enjoy hot springs and resort inns, and takes everyone on a ridiculous mountain trek. I think he'd prefer to be near nature somewhere with a mild climate.

He's a fidget. He can be very impatient. If he's not then it's a warning sign he's thinking deeply on something.

That was one of the things in the adaptation that made me really confused. Of all things, was it a tattoo, a shirt, or a really fancy brassiere? That had me rewatching scenes to try and jerk my memory. The directing on those first eps was amazing though so it was good to rewatch.

His desk and room are pretty empty, but what is out is left wherever it went at the time. He doesn't care enough about himself to keep things in perfect shape, he's just courteous enough to shove things away when other people are around. I'm probably worse, I organise constantly but to others it looks like myriad piles. He'd probably put something in the wrong box or spot and I'd take him to task on whether it looked like it fit with the other items or not. He honestly wouldn't know and get quite down.

>>3276235
Wristwatches, purple ribbons, turtlenecks, accidentally got a coat like his son's so we can stand either side of him looking moody. I tend to get things that remind me of his likeness rather than things that match what he has. Maybe it's because he doesn't have that much.

>>3276244
I have read so many ancient roleplay logs, and most of those roleplayers are still active to this day but instead run 'aesthetic' blogs where they share headcanons and things they think he'd be interested in. For some reason they are the worst imaginable. On what planet does a secretive suicidal person constantly post images of self-harm, gore, and yandere torture comics? Throw in fifty tons of monochrome ravens and random rose petals on crucifixes with a healthy dash of 3D men kissing and that's what they think he is. Some of it is funny in its inaccuracies and the strange conclusions they come to. Occasionally there's a couple nice things said and they take it seriously; I can't help seeking that out. For the most part I can't stand the language they direct at him in their tags ('my dead gay baby', 'my dead gay son', and variations on) and how they treat his sister. Then there's the need to have five separate universes to accommodate all of their ships that are definitely canon and him having an on-off vagina or relatives from Kuroshit.

The older logs are wonky/anime-only but better written. It's interesting how people new to the series know him better.

He's shown as a child for his backstory arc, but most of it is someone impersonating his appearance. There's some fanart though I'm glad I've only seen one or two that were sexualised.

He'd find my taste in fiction unpleasant, and I don't think his sense of humour likes picking on things too much. He'd be worried for the characters and complain some stories are too mean or the situations too scary. Don't know how he feels about idling games but he'd really hate Monster Farm and Zoo Tycoon because the creatures die. Actually anything where people get hurt and cry out would make him fussy. He's not much for drawing or writing either.

There's two scenarios where people draw fanart of him stressed or sad: teehee abusive ships and self-harm/suicide pics. You can't get anything classy or safe. Ok I lie, there's a few puppydog eye pics here and there but I don't know, I feel it gets played up too much sometimes. There's very little appeal left in teasing him because it's this one note caricature. I'd want to imagine something more unique surrounding that reaction.

It's one of those things I want to communicate to people and just can't put right. Sometimes I do worry how much of it is a feeling rather than something I can prove, and the scenes I could prove it with are usually the bad ones. I shit on the anime all the time but the casting and acting are spot on when it matters, and hearing ShinMiki's range might be the easiest way to explain it because he does that tired voice so perfectly. Funnily enough his other seiyuu swapped roles with ShinMiki as a teenager pretending to be an old immortal.

>growth
He changes every step of the way, sometimes for the better, sometimes for the worse. The whole story is mostly character driven, so each new scene shows a different side of him. Just when he seems to have a grasp on the situation it turns out he's actually the vulnerable one (like the beginning, when he tries to show off but is half out of it because of his wound or his post kiss emotional breakdown). His growth is mostly internal, like dealing with his trauma or learning to value himself beyond mere survival. It's a hard lesson, considering he has to take it through interacting with others rather than just reading.

Reminds me of Araragi's "Friends would lower my intensity as a human" (Kizumonogatari), in the sense that caring for something makes him more prone to getting hurt. Except he just chooses to cut loose rather than deal with it.

There would be a lot to say on the topic but I'm too brain dead tired to talk about it now.

You know, hearing you talk about long-term fans who still like him, yet treat him like shit, actually makes me feel better about a similar situation with mine. Part of it is just knowing that others have to put up with similar bullshit like that, and part is remembering that how you treat him is more important than how long it's been, how much stuff you collect, etc.
Not saying that either of those are bad, of course, just talking about the people who treat him like a fujo plaything, and act like the most devoted fans or whatever. I dunno. This made more sense before I tried to put it into words. Thank you for somehow helping my dumb insecure self anyway.

Thanks. It's one of the few drawings I'm almost proud of.
I love hearing people talk about him, so don't worry about me, at least. I feel the same about his (lack of) family and friends, I've seen artists give him some and it's almost surreal. I do love to imagine him in daily-life scenarios, so that doesn't feel odd to me. To be honest, I hardly ever think about him playing mahjong because he spends all of his screentime (page time?) doing that and stressing out. I want to focus on him being happy.

>>3283616

Exactly, he acts aloof and indifferent but constantly behaves contrary, he really does care.

Thank you. To be honest, the fact that the last season was so weak on multiple fronts makes it a little easier to stomach. He's not the only one who took a hit, nearly everyone did. So I'm in good company for wanting to gloss over parts of it.

As the last season made rather clear the writing for this show isn't exactly sterling and never has been, even considering the target audience of children. So the cynic in me has worried about being guilty of that at times. However I did successfully extrapolate a number of plot developments and canon personality traits for him in the later seasons based on my reading of him in the early ones, back when others dismissed me as pretending a weak character was better than he was. And many of the aspects I enjoyed the most about him early on did see some kind of followup. I like to think I did a decent job of grasping his character and didn't just imagine all of that depth out of thin air.

He's not the only character I've done this with but he is the one I've felt the strongest desire to do it for, and doing it makes me like him further. Chicken vs egg. I do tend to microanalyze a lot of his scenes, just because I feel the animators put extra amounts of love into them so there's plenty of cute and quirky details to pull out. The dainty way he holds a fork and steps off his bike for instance.

>>3280906
Late addendum but shipfic tends to depict him as the big strong protector half of a couple, especially with Keith, which is funny because the show suggests the total opposite. Because of his self-sacrificial nature what he needs the most is someone to protect him as much as he protects others. And Keith is always saving his hide because he pushed himself too hard. His VA confirmed this interpretation at a recent con--says he fell for Adam because what he needed was someone who'd be there for him and provide for him, cover his blind sides. He's the "taking" partner more than the "giver", a hero who needs one of his own.

I wouldn’t say that there’s “a lot”, honestly! I admit I wish I had the luxury of seeing him in more domestic situations to answer to really simple questions about his everyday life with more certainty instead of giving careful guesses that sometimes I’m afraid to take to the “rewriting the character” extremes. But it’s not like everyone knows absolutely everything about their husbando, so I’m just being a greedy prick. Especially considering the fact that even after so many years after serialization, sometimes I still find out new details about him.

Part having an “enemy of the week” format and focusing more on journey/fights didn’t really help, not to mention Araki’s habit to drop certain ideas without bringing them back, leaving some things to fan imagination and just being unable to do what he wants all the time because of editors. Husbando’s detailed backstory was never released thanks to them, Araki had enough materials to make a whole damn chapter about him but it was really close to the final battle, so he was told how “putting such chapter during an intense moment” is a shit idea. So it was scrapped and replaced with a monologue worth a few sentences. But in the end, even without that chapter and very detailed information when it comes to every part of his lifestyle, I can say what kind of person he is in canon, what he fights for, why I fell for him and I strongly disagree that he “literally has no personality” as Western fanbase loves to say.
Sorry for unleashing my autism on you and the whole thread but as you said,
>It obviously means a lot to you if you have so much to say on the subject.
It’s probably my way of protecting him from misunderstandings and shit-talking he doesn’t deserve. I can agree that there are flaws in storytelling, I could even understand people who dislike him if they ever gave proper reasoning that’s not the same “I read the manga while skipping about 3 pages per chapter, don't pay attention and miss very obvious things, therefore he’s a shit character” or even better, “He’s popular with fujos, so I hate him now" bullshit I’ve seen for years. Actual confusing moments like his unstable use of language is something that can be noticed only if you’re reading original and I kinda doubt that absolutely everyone who trashed him did. Once again, I’m sorry for acting like a broken record but also thank you, it’s still kind of nice to put your thoughts together like this and vent a bit! I'll try to mention it less from now.

Posting at 8am I was on one track and didn't consider other answers regarding sad art, so it's just occurred to me to say that blandly happy art of him isn't entirely him. Knowing that a lot of those smiles are a front, and that the unguarded him is a bit softer and sadder, I do want that. It's just that given the wrong context it's upsetting to see. I think if people understood that it's infrequent and special it might be better placed, but I end up feeling like I'm being overly finicky about it. The art that attempts it tends to be too extreme angst or someone who went too droop on his eyes in a happy scene. There are some pictures I couldn't face in the past because they made him look sad, that I now look at and think that's unknowingly fitting for the situation, and gave it my own context and meaning that reflected him. I'm glad that in time I have that to replace the initial feeling that I missed out on something. There's this kneejerk reaction to protect him from harm, and this craving for things I see other characters get but not him, and they both make me react badly over something so small. Am I his mum or his spouse? Damn.

I wrote some blogging shit to go on front of this but it was 2000 chars in itself so question answering I go.

>>3276421
I've always had a particular sense of Kaito's character so I definitely feel there's more than just ice cream that could be considered canon; don't discredit your feelings over that one word. His smile and his voice alone say a lot about him.

>>3276568
Seeing others safe and well is probably what he hangs on for, but since he doesn't put much stock in his own actions he'd answer cake.

It's never elaborated on how he was trained or taught, and he's the kind of person who'll suddenly seem to know what he's doing out of nowhere. He's an active doing person, but scared of acting with his powers, so I do like the fan interpretation that his senses let him observe better or imagine processes he's read about.
>>
>>3276596
The author gave him a very varied wardrobe but 90% of it is promotional art, posters, covers, etc. I think the same old suit and tie you usually see in the manga reflects his work wardrobe, he just has one or two outfits for that that are ill-fitted and hurriedly put on. The most it really varies is early on when he has suspenders and waistcoats from time to time, and the occasions he wore other work uniforms for cases. What appears to be his personal clothes seem eccentric but I wonder how many of them were actually gifts or hand-me-downs. With all the fuss the Count makes over him it can't have just been the shorts and shirt in vol 9 that he let Tsuzuki wear. Tatsumi also is the kind to foist something on him, most likely shirts he's darned.

>>3276946
You know, even with all the shit he's been through I don't think I can say any one person betrayed him that he didn't already see as an untrustworthy person. I've never thought about it before, but either he expects the worst treatment anyway, or that person is bad news to begin with. His relationship with the aforementioned Tatsumi could be an example if you consider the fiction world the Count created, or how Tatsumi sees his actions, but the original Tsuzuki takes it like it's the natural flow of things. Only in comical scenes about a nightmare or having his budget cut does he accuse Tatsumi of betraying him, and yet A Tatsumi somewhere has personally filled him with bullets and led a pitchfork mob against him. I think seeing it from an outside perspective he was better able to understand what that Tatsumi was doing to protect the other Tsuzuki. It was Tatsumi betraying himself and being dishonest with his feelings. The lesson here is don't listen to people who say vol 5 was useless fluff, they're the real traitors.

His language isn't fancy, he's a bit rough and slapdash, but what he says leaves enough impact. I think he prefers to get words out however they come.

Free things holiday with food? Yes.

Every time I think I'm making progress I scroll back up to continue reading and I'm not even half way done. That's a testament to this thread I think.

>>3277189
You're shown he's loose with money, but it's entirely food and alcohol expenses with touring eateries from catalogues. I reckon he's incredibly frugal in all other departments, and he has no idea about electronics so he doesn't bother with many.
>vanity
I'd love to see him take pride in his appearance, to enjoy dressing up a bit. Being bad at saying no is something they have in common, but Tsuzuki would be submissive and awkward over anyone complimenting how it suits him. He'd look more like he was being bullied. Ah but the perfect scenario is he sees something amiss out the window or off to the side and turns serious, and that's when whatever he's trying on looks gorgeous with how he's poised.

>>3277321
>light hearted
>immediately think of dark answer
I broke your questions can I get a refund? Ok, a more light hearted answer: we have probably both walked into glass doors. Sensors on automatic doors never believe I'm real, and he's a dead person! He's incorporeal some of the time! I'm sure one time he forgot to shift and walked straight into one, shook his head like a dog, and gave it a dirty look like it wronged him. Otherwise he is capable of laughing at himself at the drop of a hat to cover anything.

According to the drama CD he sleeps through alarms and phone rings and has sleepy disputes with talking chicken trying to wake him. The one thing that we know is surefire to work is putting a zombie on top of him. Don't worry though, Watson does not bite.

He summons gods to fight for him because he's afraid of blowing people's eyeballs out their sockets and collapsing roofs. True story. He's determined to be a human shield so he'd protect anyone, but emotionally, the opposite.

Around this time of year I try not to think about his death, or rather I try to ignore the date. Unfortunately checking out one of those old roleplay profiles I got a stark reminder from someone managing to get every part of it wrong (the day, month, even year, how is that possible? Did they just make up their own version of events?). Embarrassingly after feeling that disconnect the profile description itself read similarly to my own explanations about him, even used the same wording a couple times. Which in a way is a comfort to see. The whole 'I'm not living in a void and someone else saw the same thing'. Then I was amazed to find only days ago someone revamped a Wikia for his series.

Anyway this week I started making myself busy with stupid web editing (with many Geocities GIFs) and then I felt guilty that I had never finished the site I put up on waifu.pl, so I've been and revised a bunch of the rushed writing and started worrying over how to cut down the summary section to be readable. And then it occurred to me: the reason the site is so visually displeasing and monstrous is because it's all text, whereas the shrines dedicated to waifu on these sites are invariably image centred. Everyone else seems to have gotten this memo: show the waifu, tell us how you met, tell us who you are and why you like her. Or just show the waifu fifteen times; up to you. But here I was bumbling about with fifty essays and I can't write a thing about myself. Hell, I think it was the cute facts part on the first thread that tripped me up while I was in a rut because I suddenly couldn't find words to just say why I liked him or who he was. So what I've got is this overly long trivia driven essay I can't imagine anyone sitting through in its entirety, and the next page is more of the same with the excuse that it'd be 'shorter and less painful than reading the whole manga'. Fuck. I had a point to all this some hours ago but when I sat down to finally type it I forgot what that was.
>>
>>3285185
But then today I stumbled across a Tripod site that had, lo and behold: the same damn thing. Huge wall of text summaries of each story arc. I'm not mad, it really does take fifty paragraphs to explain everything that happened in one case. Except, this person was doing it for the anime, so really they were far worse.

Maybe the takeaway from all this is that I'm terribly old fashioned. When I first made a site for him I tried making it with fancy web 2.0 feeling ideas for the layout, and it was all hideous and I hated all of it, and I'm not sure what part of what I made was actually fancy. I make a joke website with 90s sensibilities and became jealous that I hadn't done as nice a job for him. To be honest nothing will be nice enough for him, and I don't think I have images high enough res to consistently make it image focused for larger monitors.

Now that I think about it perhaps this is the flaw we have in common. Terrible sense, trapped in the 90s, and certain that our image probably isn't up to scruff.

Holy crap that's awesome work anon. What program are you using?
>>3281779
The only canon "dream" was when he dreamt of his past, his life with his best friend, how he met him and got to know him, and how he lost his bf during a soul transfer coma. He has had PTSD-induced hallucinations before so it's likely he suffers from traumatic nightmares.
He's more of an inspirational speechgiver than a silvertongue, but he's pretty good at encouraging people through a mix of kindness and tough love.
Not if he could help it. But he's a practical guy used to eating food goo, space food, and whatever they serve in Galra prisons so he would if he had to.
>>3284598
The former is his origin story. It's the whole reason his epilogue feels so off until they clarify otherwise, since as you pointed out these two mindsets are so opposed and right until the end he still shows a love for adventure.
>>3285125
>Araki’s habit to drop certain ideas without bringing them back
I love Jojo to death but god if this isn't the single most frustrating aspect of it. At least Jojo is loose enough in nature to get away with it compared to Voltron. But I'm worried he'll forget about the bite marks and Johnny with the Rock People fruit shenanigans when continuity matters more now.
>He’s popular with fujos, so I hate him now
Shit that's the worst. Or, "the show's fandom sucks, so must he". Trust me, I cringe at the really rabid character stans as much as everyone else. Another bad one is "you only like him because he's hot". Seeing as there was a character I found far more attractive off the bat but hated for a long time due to his grating personality, no, not really?
And shit, Kakyoin does not have "no personality". That's insane and pisses me off. He's always been my fave Stardust Crusader along with Joseph for a reason. Fans have been shitting on Caesar for the same supposed things so I don't know why the Jobros attract so much hate these days, like it's some kind of popularity contest.

>>3282751
>traps
That's a shame. Trap fandom is super frustrating because of their tendency to exaggerate, especially when the character wasn't built to pander to trap fetishists and sometimes even when they are.
>>3279314
Omegaverse is the worst. Actively makes things unsexy even when the characterization isn't horribly murdered in the process.
>>3277321
Flaws? Probably our desire to prioritize our own desires over others' in a given conflict. Learning to let go is a skill I'm still developing.
Oh god. He'd try to brush it off before walking away with a glum look on his face, and inwardly seething a little, trying his best to keep calm. A mix of disappointment at himself for not being more careful and anger at the door for being in his way.
He would definitely wake up before his alarm goes off and have time to do daily morning exercises. Being punctual able to keep a strong schedule kept him from going insane in the void between life and death.

Oh no, Kid Crona a cute!
>>3281435
Forget if I answered this before but black is his official color, with white and silver as implied secondary ones.
Personally wolves. It's deuterocanonical and I think it captures him pretty well - while he outwardly has a lot of traits typically associated with dogs, he's far more rough around the edges. Loyal to his friends and thrives best around others, but somewhat proud, large and intimidating, and impossible to fully tame. He's also got a catty side that he lets out from time to time, which might explain why his favorite animals are cats. Fans adopted rabbits for him lately, mostly because of the shift to a white aesthetic and because it's cute. It's ironic because they make Keith the wolf in these, when the fandom used to agree on it being "his" animal. In-show they usually avoid outright animal comparisons aside from lions, simply because that's what everyone rides around in.
>>3282581
God, not my first guess for his animal but that's cute.
>>
>>3284598
Absolutely, he might feel reasonably reluctant about it but will do it anyway.

>>3284818
>I can't even imagine how this got butchered in the anime.You really need that internal monologue of his to get a good grasp on him as a person
Having watched the anime first, imagine my surprise when I actually came across it.
The anime itself is very "show, don't tell" which BONES usually does extremely well and which is also what makes it watchable in the first place, since it ups the pacing and condenses some scenes to make them memorable. In this regard, there are a few moments that are downright amazing (see: the knitting needle scene in the last episodes - it wasn't in the book but it translates much better in visual storytelling; it's also extremely brief but it's a detail that goes a long way).

However, show don't tell doesn't work for a character like Nezumi. If you did a "show, don't tell" on Mrs. Dalloway, you'd just see a woman throwing a tea party. I get that they tried to build up to his big tsundere reveal but it just comes too late make one give a shit about him. They also cut most of the scenes where you could "show", like the torture part (gotta love how censorship decided it was ok to show a 11-12 almost get raped but Nezumi roughing up a guy and enjoying it was just too much) or him actually killing a person.The fact that Shion is presented as Nezumi sees him (shy and innocent) doesn't help either because it fails to convey the chasm between his idealization and reality.There are no hints that Shion might have a darker side to him and the sole moments when we do see it emerge come off as endearing, rather than terrifying. Why would someone be afraid of a person like that? Take the doubt away and Nezumi's violent outbursts just don't make sense.

>pic related
He'd probably laugh his ass off. Proportions are off, I need to work on shading, hair is unexpectedly hard to do, fabric folds are a nightmare.I'm trying to get better.

>>3284819
It looks wonderful. I love the color scheme and the smooth lineart. How long have been drawing for and what software are you using?

You're probably going to get a lot of requests but if it's something you'd enjoy then sure, yes, please.

Also wanted to add that I'm at the last episodes of the series and i have to say Damn, Washizu is fucking terrifying. It's rare to see a villain as unsettling as that without slipping into edgy or breaking the mood. It feels like they could have developed more on Yukio tho, especially since they set him in contrast to Akagi. I failed to see anything funny about his death, why are people joking about it? He's like a wake-up call, the voice of reason, the one to bring into attention just how insane the whole gamble is.

>>3283387
Guess I should answer my own questions too.

>If your husbando was taking you out on a surprise date, what kind of date do you think he'd plan?
Something completely extravagant and over the top. Probably starting off with a ride in his Blue-Eyes Jet, flying to a remote location where a fancy resturaunt would be bought and rented out exclusively for the two of us on our date.
>What's his greatest skill? Is it something he can say he's better than everyone else at?
Duel Monsters and yeah, obviously he's the best and will spare no time telling anyone that.

>>3284185
>This question has spurred some of the funniest replies in the thread. This is no exception, just imagining that situation makes me smile.
It made me laugh a bit too while I was writing it. He would absolutely react like that.

>>3284598
>Would he give up on his life to join an adventure, not knowing if he'd ever come back? Or would he prefer to stay put?
Kaiba has important things to do and take care of. He's staying put to run his company.

Some questions that i missed, so here goes

>>3281435
>color
Dark shades of blue mostly because of the anime design. Looks nice on him tho.

>animal
as his name suggests, mouse, although i'd venture to say he's quite catty so tough choice

>>3281526
>festivities
I think he'd enjoy a small festive gathering given the right circumstances. Stays up, performs under the mistletoe, has his share of champagne but doesn't act out.
>resolutions
Travel, try out new things and stop brooding so much.

>>3283387
>surprise date
Either something chill and cute like stargazing or night out with theater tickets&nice dinner.

>skill
Stage acting. He's pretty good with technology as well.

>>3283555
>husbando's source
Already got into at least three more series because of these threads, all of which have been worth it so that's a solid yes from me. It's also cool going in after having read all this stuff.

>>3285185
>Everyone else seems to have gotten this memo: show the waifu, tell us how you met, tell us who you are and why you like her. Or just show the waifu fifteen times; up to you
It depends. I think these threads are nice precisely because we get all texty and bloggy about our feelings for them while also developing on the trivia.Yes, it's hard to go through a lot of text but it all boils down to what your target readership is. Sometimes you do want to read a several page long essay about a character you enjoyed. Writing stuff down also helps you process it better, even if you're just doing it for yourself. And the best part about it is that you can edit whenever you want, depending on the situation.

Now, along the lines of the glass door clash, consider this

Husbando slips on a patch of ice. Does he recover balance? Does he fall? What's his reaction?
It's raining, a car/bus drives by and the splash soaks him. Does he freak out or just continues on with resignation?

Thanks!

>>3283387
>surprise date
Something simple I think, a nature walk, quick trip to get ice cream, something along those lines. Neither of us are too into fancy or elaborate dates so I imagine he'd keep it more casual, for my sake as much as his.
>greatest skill
Arguably his abilities dealing with the black blood; others in his series have and use it but not in the way or to the extent that he does.
>I always like to describe us as two broken puzzle pieces that found a match, since we never fit with anyone else.
That's sweet, it's nice to feel that kind of one in a billion connection.

>>3283553
>Even if he is too hard on himself, it's admirable that he wants to work on his anxiety issues and strive to be a good person.
Yeah, it's endearing. I'd happily encourage him to keep improving and moving forward, but I'd also want to help him appreciate himself as-is at the same time. It's good that he acknowledges the parts of himself that could use a little shoring up, but he also deserves far more credit than he gives himself. Certainly would be important to find a good balance there.

>>3283555
There's definitely a few whose series pique my interest, I don't really have the time or motivation to watch animu/read mango like I used to though. Someday, hopefully.

>>3283703
If anything I feel like I underanalyze it. For as much cancer as there is in SE's fanbase, some people do come up with theories and interpretations and such that're actually somewhat compelling. I do wish I could think that deeply about it, but at the same time I don't want to feel like I'm overstepping my bounds so to speak and grasping at straws. Part of it too is that a good chunk of his characterization comes via scenes I'd really rather not revisit, hard to truly analyze something you read 3-4 years ago and try not to think about much.

Oh no, the aesthetic blogs. The people running them always seem to manage to pick out the most cliche, tacky, tasteless junk for their collages. The word 'cringy' gets thrown around a lot but it's the first thing that comes to mind in regard to them.

>>3284598

>>3284818
>I worry too much that I'm going to get tired of it, as if I've worn it out somehow.
Ditto, there's only a few of his scenes I actually enjoy rewatching and I'd hate for them to lose their novelty. Might not be likely but the chance is always there.

>>3285181
>Crona decides he wants a porcelain squirrel with an acorn bowl to put your house keys in
Too cute, now that you mention it it'd be neat to see how his tastes might influence the look of our shared living space. I have my preferred flavors of kitsch, I'd love to see what he might contribute.
>joke website with 90s sensibilities
Honestly, a 90's style shrine page would be unique and cool as heck. That was the look I had in mind for mine when I was toying around with a site designer app, before life got busy(/ier). Would be really neat to see the concept done up properly, it'd certainly stand out.

>>3285248
Yea, he's so small and precious, just the cutest.

>>3285276
Looks great especially for a first try, very nice work.

>>3285434
He's light on his feet and seems to have a good sense of balance, but the surprise of it might do him in. Beyond the initial shock he'd probably recover quickly though, albeit flustered and maybe a tad sore.
>Does he freak out or just continues on with resignation?
Both - he'd be very startled no doubt, but I don't think he'd get seriously indignant about it or anything. Just accept it with that placid, can't be helped sort of frown of his and carry on.
>>
>>3277914
Minor injuries heal in seconds for him, so an injury he needs support for would be significant. If I had a wild imagination I'd get excited at that because the first example the series gives you he merges with someone else and takes control of their body, but given I don't have spiritual powers I doubt I'd be of any use to help bear it. He on the other hand is always carrying people and could easily do the merger to patch everything up with his own energy.

Emotionally, he is completely committed to bothering people into cheer and frivolous things. He stays by people's side through all sorts and provides a shoulder to cry on. That's not to say he knows what to do/say or that he doesn't sometimes piss people off more, or even that he can stop a sombre mood from taking hold of a room - but he does work hard to keep people distracted without trampling on their feelings. His tangents can be surprisingly productive, and his silence can still be comforting.

>>3277955
>Maybe they just found the look they liked and stuck with it their whole life
In Tsuzuki's case I'm sure his hair is just a natural parting forming from a crown or something, and he's never cared enough to do anything with it his whole life. I guess he's easy to let off since it's quite plain.

>>3277958
These are both questions where I can only say I don't know. Obviously I could ply him with food, treat him to something nice like that, but beyond that or a potted flower I don't think he has any particular interests to play to. I'd worry about getting the same thing every year, or the same kind of thing. Probably the gesture is more important to him but that's not going to shake my thought process on gifts.

However much he talks and butts into conversations he doesn't talk for hours on anything. In a way expecting him to would be like stripping away the mask and finding there's an empty space behind it. He'd coax you into doing the talking and make excuses; he doesn't talk about himself easily.
>>
>>3278643
>heroically nope out
Pfft. I hope the world bestows you with the reality altering protection of a comic exit.

Tsuzuki is the same, he wouldn't want to take responsibility for another life. He does it repeatedly in terms of work, but only because he feels his hand is forced. Plants he's alright with, I guess those never left him.

You could say he already keeps birds if you count his messengers, the robots his friend made, or the wild ones that seem to flock to windows to perch on him. That's pretty loose though.

He's not really the type for films and novels. I found an answer I made last Feb that suggested pet manga. They're very easy going and simple, cute, nobody dies. You couldn't say the same with pet documentaries or stories though. Even if the stray cat finds a good home it still suffers at some point in the narrative and he wouldn't like it. I don't think he'd persist til the ending, he'd just bother you whining 'tell me the cat gets better, tell me he gets a family, aah that poor kitty'. Now I think about it, telling him stories might be fun. There's something to bully him with.

Same same, Nendo, pinched, Nitotan, mochimochi, Chun Colle, Gyugutto, Nekomens, GraffArt, wall scrolls, all the things.

Good god, it turned you Korean. I've wanted a plush since forever, but the existing examples are horrifying (so of course I keep a folder of them). I've said it a million times but humans are so hard to not make ugly or scary. Then there's the price of anyone good at them. Years back I settled for a ferret teddy and using it as a surrogate representation; animals with simplified details are easier to cutesify. It fits BaBW outfits but I've never found a suit and tie for it. The maker has ferrets of her own and it was so dowsed in fabric spray he still smells sweet.

Oh right mistletoe. He'd call me over and go for a quick kiss on the head before I could see anything. I talk about bullying or teasing him. This is how he does it back.
>>
>>3279314
The one thing I can thank my stars for not happening yet. Instead I get treated to people's weird headcanons that he's actually a violent horrible person, and reading a whole chapter of him brutally murdering a poor old man that the story had been sympathetic to up til then. It does make me wonder how conflicted they would be if they were to try and apply that shit fetish to him. It'd be like their canon ships - they'd insist on one thing then bitch that it wasn't compatible with the other that is definitely happening at the same time and not evidence they've fucked up somewhere.

>>3279460
I'm not sure if he feels guilt over his pleasures. I think the point of overindulging is to forget his guilt over other things, so he plays it up as a necessary and important thing to him. Maybe he's more conflicted with alcohol at times, because he knows his behaviour isn't good with it, and he knows it inconveniences others more than sweets.

I always feel that I've never taken the time to study how he speaks. Like I don't know what kind of pronouns he uses (ore, he uses ore I know that much but I still don't know if it changes because I never checked), or if he has tics. But I know quite certainly when things aren't him. In my ongoing fanfiction trauma, a fic where he was kept in character since 2004ish, mostly by way of short and mysterious appearances, finally had a chapter where he's present the whole time. And for some stupid reason they decided he now goes 'oh no' and 'uh oh' constantly in seriously dire situations. It was painful. He sounded like a 14-year-old girl (and/or Scooby Doo), but the author is def nearing her 30s now.

On a lighter note, I spent today grinding a game character who shares his VA and his love of alcohol - it's the same VA, and some of the same breathy, umming aahing tics he carried into the role, but it's definitely not Tsuzuki. The language is more formal, he's more articulate. It bothered the hell out of me at first but now I get why.

I've been so bad at replying to people's responses, sorry about that. I keep charging through the thread and running out of space each post. This is such a strange microcosm. It's nothing like the old WW on /a/; having a thread where people make both long posts and talk to each other. Things get a little lost but it's uplifting. In the past it was isolating, even if you bled thoughts over everything nobody spoke back and they didn't dare slap a generic handsome or cool on him in their compliment lists. I do feel I'm the same - leaving some people out because I don't know their husband well enough to comment - but I'm still reading with fascination the worlds I never explored. I would have never believed this could work out, but thank you for making it happen. Sorry I complain so much.

I'm really glad to hear it was good for something, and you make a great point. No matter when or where you came in, you can be better to a series and its characters than some, and having or not having isn't a determining factor either in using sense. I'm always going to get irked or jealous but it's worth remembering before evaluating your efforts at least.
More analytically, I was thinking that his fanbase seems to have drifted away from the source with time, and being just a small community sharing ideas they homogenised onto their own version of things full of leftovers from being teenage fangirls when they first saw it. That upsets me because it makes me feel like a dissenter, but the big issue is they propagate their beliefs til that's all there is. There's little deviation to contend.

Who I'm writing for is the problem! Here I'm happy writing for myself but the site was meant to be to introduce him to new people and give a resource for WWD types, so honestly it should be snappier and easier to digest. I'm no good at being concise. ;__;

It's exhausting, cold times like these when I wish I could be with him enjoying a cup of warm and nerding out together about games and other things. I wouldn't mind hearing him just talk about his studies about astrophysics while I occasionally talk to him about my tech studies. He has good reasons to be interested in what he studies so he would probably sound enthusiastic about them and I would very much enjoy it.

>>3283703
There's a lot of simple details about him that are left unknown, but I definitely leave myself to analyze whatever facts are out there. Just because it's fun and pleasant to think about him. Probably doesn't go all the way to over analyzing.
He isn't the only thing I analyze about the series since I'm a fan of it but he definitely is the thing I analyze the most out of love.

>>3284598
Depends. He would sacrifice his own safety for adventure if it was required in order to save or protect people, otherwise probably not. He has too many people who he can't just leave behind to be worried about him.

>>3285434
He is just a bit clumsy so he might end up falling, then lightheartedly laugh it off.
>It's raining, a car/bus drives by and the splash soaks him. Does he freak out or just continues on with resignation?
He would momentarily be shocked/surprised but probably accept his situation as best as he can if he can't really do anything about it at that moment and just keep going.

Pic related even though it's fanart. His alternative outfits are usually collaborations or homages with high-end fashion houses or by animators working on the show. Other than that it's recolors of the same standard outfit.

>>3275907
Hardy and savory food. He'd probably prefer something scenic over a city but he'd still engage with the locals and enjoy sightseeing whenever he has time. Both are fine for him though as long as he's with his friends and be able to enjoy it. Definitely calm.

>>3276026
He'd keep things neat and organized. It would only clash if we share a bedroom or home office because those are the only places where I'm quite messy. The rest would be clean, neat, and organized.

>>3276235
A few months ago I was looking for a simple authentic black denim jacket and there were two that fit with my expectations, but ultimately I picked one that had extra zippers because it reminded me of him since his trademark ability has to do with zippers. It's still a neat essential and versatile jacket, so it was a great purchase. Other than that there's an official cute keychain with the pitter patter pop design that I placed as a purse decoration.

>>3276244
Usually avoid and/or ignore them. I admit to reading some nice head canons about him occasionally, but not to the point of agreeing as if it were the gospel truth.

>>3276389
>Do you have any older or younger pictures of your husbando canon or not?
There's a chapter that talks about his childhood. The only difference is that he wore V-neck shirts and sweaters and had a parted fringe.

>What would he think of your hobbies
They are quite low-key, traditional, and similar to his, so we'd have a lot to share and enjoy.

>How do you feel about art of your husbando looking stressed or sad?
A bit sad but it's a natural emotion. I'll still save it.

>Does he have a favorite color or one you associate with him
Usually green and blue
>Is there and animal you associate him with
Cats!
>Is there a common misconception about your husbando?
A lot of people call him a Mary Sue unfairly.
>What kind of growth did he experience throughout his story?
Growing from a reckless boy to one that understood when is the right time to fight and when to back off.
>Is there anything still unresolved in his story?
How good of a king was he?
>Does his source ever show him dreaming?
I wish.
>How persuasive is he?
Not very. He usually just gives up and does it anyway.

>What makes life worthwhile for him?
Family, friends, freedom, values, righteousness, intelligence, and justice. Sounds really boring but it's true.

>How does he learn best? By seeing, hearing, feeling, doing, etc.
A bit of everything. At some point in the story, he loses all of his senses and had to figure out who or what someone was doing by being perceptive.

>>3276946
>Has he ever been hurt or betrayed by someone he thought he could depend on? What happened?
Yes; twice by the same mafia organization that he works for. The first one was when the organization failed to protect his dad and him when he was a child even though that was the only reason he joined the organization in the first place. The second one was when he was fooled into thinking that his boss was protecting Trish and be concerned of her well being when in reality he just wanted to personally dispose of her and erase any links related to him.

>Does he have a way with words, or is he more awkward and inarticulate?
Usually he has a way with words to the point of being a beacon of hope and inspiration, but sometimes he can be awkward and cold.

>Do you think he'd like Christmas?
He always loved Christmas, but it might be a bit melancholic for him due to his parents. As long as he's with his friends, it's going to be alright.

>>3277321
>Do you two share any flaws?
We share the misfortune of doing the occasional irrational decision based on righteous principles for better or worse.

>Imagine him walking into a glass door. How does he react? How does he recover?
He'd probably be embarrassed, irked, or flustered. He'd recover fast by shrugging it off and hope that no one ever saw that. From experience, it can hurt if you're not paying attention and embarrassing of course.

>How good is your husbando at fighting? In a fight, would you protect them or would they protect you?
According to his stand stats: destructive power: A, speed: A, range: E (poor), durability: D, precision: C (it's relative), and potential for development: D (you need to be very creative when you're given the power of turning anything into a zipper.) He's really good at direct combat fighting but long distance and time related fights are a challenge for him. He's also good at strategies, perception, tactics, analysis, and engaging in sneak attacks. He's very violent and ruthless if you cross him. As for protection, he'd be most likely to protect more than me because of chivalry but I'd protect him at all costs, even from shitty mafia bosses.

>>3277914
>Say he gets injured, could you help him? Could he help you if you got hurt?
I'm not a stand user, but I'd try to help him in any way possible as a source for first-aid and comfort. He may not be a healer like Josuke or Giorno, but I'm sure he'd help me if I get hurt in any way.

>What about emotional support, is he the always-knows-the-right-thing-to-say or does he end up making it worse?
He always knows the right thing to say and do. Rarely he makes something worse, at least on his part; I can't say the same about some of his teammates.

>>3277189
Do you think he’d enjoy shopping? Not just for clothes, but for anything else like electronics, or makeup, or even weapons or something. Do you think he’d be a frugal shopper or loose with money?
He's not loose with money, but he'd be above the frugal shopping since it shows that he likes to indulge eating at fancy restaurants. I think he's the type that shops for the basic necessities and indulges occasionally in the fancier things in life. It helps a bit that he's often given free stuff and services due to his position despite that he's willing to pay for them.

Hi folks. I was directed here. I hope it's okay if I join you in talking about my own hubby.

>Does he have any gap moe traits or hobbies?
Depends on what you mean by "gap moe" - as a whole him and his brothers are considered it in their "shitty but lovable" way. As for hobbies, it's been established in merch and background material to the point that it's practically canon that he sews and makes his own "perfect fashion" - so those sparkily pants and tank top with his own face on it, etc. were lovingly made by himself.

>What's his place in his source material, how does he effect the plot and the other characters?
He tends to stand around in the background, observing the others only to make a quip and suffer for it. It's not much but the way he often would get up again only with another cheesy line is incredibly charming to me. He effects the plot hardly at all, but he wants to be seen so badly! And that only makes me wish I could tell him I think he's wonderful.

>Does he have any close friends? If he does, what is their friendship like and how do they treat eachother?
His only close friends are his own brothers and Chibita, who they constantly owe money. He gets picked on/ignored, though in the second season it lets up a bit and instead he's just kind of there. He has an amusing, odd friendship with his younger brother Jyushimatsu (they have concerts together on the house rooftop), and a great rivalry with his only older brother, Osomatsu. Those two relationships in particular are my favourites.

As for how I draw him, I draw him pretty often. I try to be as on-model as I can though sometimes I have some fun with AU versions.

>Does he have any official material outside of the main story? Spinoffs, pachislots, events, anything you want to talk about. How do you like them? How do you like his portrayal in them?
He has several mobile games and a pachinko game. The longest-running mobile game is a tower defense game that has many great designs and AUs for him (but unfortunately they cannot be included in the show). The only thing I outright dislike is that one of the games showed Kara pencilling in his brows, and this (while a popular western fandom headcanon) has been disproven multiple times - he's had those lovely brows since birth.

A nice cup of cocoa to brighten his morning for starters followed by a fancy and elegant coat, a nice watch or wallet, or albums of his favorite musicians. Perhaps something practical and essential would be nice to give too.To end the day, lots of cuddles and love.

>What's something he could talk about with you for hours?
Life, music, the sea, traveling, food, various entertainment, poetry, aimless, and mischellanious things. Anything is fine by me, even cars, sports, politics, and Formula 1. >_>

>>3278643
>Would he like pets?
Most likely. As long as it's not a fly, all is well.

>What do you think his favorite film or novel genre would be?
His favorite film is Il Postino. Judging by that, for novel genres he's either into poetry or bittersweet romance.

>What merch do you want of him
I hope for a Nendoroid version of him in the future. It may take forever thanks to Medicos, but I hope that Good Smile and the anime will make it a reality soon. There's also a hoodie that looks quite nice but that would be harder to get.

>>3279460

Taste lies by licking the sweat off their face. -_-

>Does he have any verbal tics or patterns? Do you like them, find them cute? Post an audio clip if you like. (Apologies to Jacket-anon.)
I like the way he playfully taunts with his enemies and I think that Nakamura is doing a great job so far. I can't wait for the Grateful Dead and Beach Boy fights which will be either this or next week. Super excited about hearing his battle cry (Ari ari ari arivederci) too. Audio clip soon. The way he speaks in general is so smooth and reasuring, it's like you feel safe with him and have nothing to fear.

>Has he ever been hurt or betrayed by someone he thought he could depend on? What happened?
His mom cut off his nipples once when he didn't have a good enough reason for why he didn't have a job yet. Don't worry, they grew back.

>Does he have a way with words, or is he more awkward and inarticulate?
This is a tough one, it's very much dependent on the scenario. He clearly practices his one-liners in his head over and over before he says them, waiting for just the right moment. But sometimes he can also improvise some great stuff. However, some interactions he'll turn down from afar, like talking to cute girls (he'll convince himself they already like him, or he'll be too shy to even say why he can't talk to them - maybe more than one is overkill?). Of course to me, he's smooth as melted butter.

>Do you think he'd like Christmas?
The Japanese version of Christmas (where it's mainly a holiday for couples), he hates, being a lonely soul - but I bet he would love the western version of Christmas ... and besides, he'd be with me.

>Does he have any guilty pleasures?
for Karamatsu, nothing is "guilty." This is a man who always follows his heart! Guilt guy!

Does his own wardrobe count as a collection? If not, he buys men's fashion magazines and puts sticky notes to bookmark the pages that inspire him, if that counts.

>>3279817
Back then I used to look forward to those events in order to see the troll submissions and laugh. I used to side-eye and be silently judgmental about those things but it all changed when my husbando came into my life three years ago. My tune changed really quick. Last year I did pic related for the first time in which it surprisingly made it into the collage and video. It was a nightmare to do and very last minute because I had a busy day, so I had to wait till nearly midnight in order to pull that off. Would do it again even though I rarely celebrate anything.

>>3281435
Blue, white, black, and gold are the colors usually associated with him. If it's just one color, then it's blue because of his aura, stand, and official merch. As for animal, either a blue eyed black cat or a Dalmatian. I'm leaning more on the cat because of the way he said "nyan nyan" during the Soft Machine fight.

>>3280906
>Is there a common misconception about your husbando?
A certain board thinks that he's a Gary Stu and I think the Stuno meme needs to die, but that's futile. The other one is that he's either too stoic or boring.

>What kind of growth did he experience throughout his story?
He was dying on the inside and was still fated to die young, but thanks to Giorno he managed to turn most of his life around and do the right things even though it still led to his death. It was when he felt more alive despite everything that happened in the span of a week.

>Is there anything still unresolved in his story?
Yes. It has a few loose ends (mostly centered around the aftermath of the final fight) in which I hope that the anime can fix at least some of them.

>pretty much anything I'd have to gripe about pales in comparison
I feel that. In general there's a lot of husbando who've been through such extraordinary circumstances, you just wouldn't have any experience to fall back on and say it'll turn out alright. Then what you find an uphill struggle is barely a blip in the grand scheme of things so wanting attention for that seems selfish and undeserved. Talking like this sounds like his way of thinking, so I know it's the exact opposite when he thinks of someone else. He'd make a mountain of a molehill if it seemed like you couldn't get past it. I can take a little solace in knowing he wouldn't mind giving undue care. In fact, the moment when you can say 'thank you, you really helped' is something that'd make him light up and feel accomplished for a while, and any chance to do that would be precious.

>>3279711
I want to believe he spends New Years with his work colleagues, drinking and playing cards and watching TV. There's a couple images to suggest they go to a shrine together and draw fortune slips, but nothing to say if he spends the night before alone. A full blown party is too much effort, but falling asleep under the kotatsu and waking up to 7AM news sounds about right.

>>3279817
I think we talked about it in the Xmas threads, but I just hate how anything I try to put together comes out and it's impossible to do stealthily in a rush. I've taken notes, but these things don't stick. I don't want to shame him with how much of a mess I am. I have a lot of respect for people who can take nice photos, though there's always a few that just seem off. I'm not a fan of dakimakura making lewd faces across the dining table.

It's common for him to be drawin in fanart with a six pack. Not only does it look ridiculous but it doesn't suit how he really is at all. Also people go too far and make him an outright bimbo, when actually he's more of the type who just daydreams a lot since he's out of focus.

>What kind of growth did he experience throughout his story?
It's a gag anime, so I can't really answer this one.

>Is there anything still unresolved in his story?
Again, hard to say. Season 2 really messed with what is an AU or not, which sucked. Hopefully the movie, which will include his high school self, will answer any remaining questions about his more shy days and be firmly in canon.

I've reread this post several times in the past week and every time this gets me. I'm not in the same shitty position of having canon go off the rails, but that misplaced possessiveness you know you ought to avoid, that wanting to know the other way things work out and all the possibilities the door closed on when things stopped, that wanting something more for him; yeah. Them's the feelings.

>>3280533
There were a few, and they all shared one or two traits with him even if it's hard to explain how. I think I've joked before that finding him was rather like putting all those nice things in one basket. Maybe that made the basket too heavy so it fell and rolled through some rough places, but even if the contents got broken or something went missing along the way, I want them more - I want that complete basket - more than just a few familiar things that tickle my fancy. If I named someone then that analogy turns really mean for the Anons who found themselves with them, eep. But it's all an irrational feeling of wholeness and familiarity that leads to him being the ideal version I can't replace so I can't shake that line of thinking. I don't 'recognise' other characters the same way, but I do see traces of him in them.

Something I found fun one time was matching his TVtropes labels with other characters and tallying how many they had in common. There were two or three that shared more than others and I realised oh yeah, I really liked these characters when I read those. They were popular guys though.

>>3285743

I agree on the character development, it always felt like Fukumoto wasted Yukio's potential a bit. What's there still feels deeper than I'd usually expect from a character with so little screen time, but I'm biased.
Washizu is at his best when he's menacing, things got kind of over-the-top in later chapters.
People joke about him panicking and losing it which is Uncool and they totally wouldn't do that in the same situation. They see him as pathetic in general, the death scene is kind of the cherry on top, I suppose. I don't see it as much anymore, thankfully, because it made my blood boil back in the days. I'm kind of desensitized to the jokes now, just the same old shit for years.

I had a huge crush on Leonardo DiCaprio when I was a kid. I don't think that counts though, lol.

>What do you think some of his resolutions might be?
Become a better person each year.

>>3281779
>Dreaming
Flashbacks are shown, but none of dreams. I really don't know but judging from his state of mind, he may have had his fair share of nightmares related to his parents and his line of work in Passione.

>Persuasive
He's pretty good at it whether it's with ordinary civilians and gangsters alike. He's a very repsected individual despite being a gangster.

>Frozen food
Never.

>>3283387
>Surprise date
Honestly, no idea but it must be really good because it takes a lot of effort for me to be surprised at something. Regardless of being surprised or not, it certainly won't dissapoint because I have faith in him. For a place, it would probably be in a scenic area.

>Greatest skill
Deducting and solving mysteries is one of his greatest skills. His other great skill is having to be versatile with a stand that's based on a zipper. That's a lot to admire for me.

>>3285522
Responding to everyone is overwhelming when I leave it too long but damn it, it's worth it. I never liked the feeling of shouting into the void you got from the WW threads, so I want to change it as best I can. I'm glad others are doing it too, but no one should feel forced. I love reading here regardless of whether I know the characters or not, although I do feel it makes some of my comments too shallow.
I'm amazed it took off at all, but I missed posting about him enough to force it anyway, god damn it.

Can't speak for others but I wouldn't be offended if mine were one of the characters you liked some aspect of. Hell, I'd be interested to hear about it.
Also that line was originally from the 1930s, so his excuse does fly.
>>3285763
>3D crush
God that brings up embarrassing memories. The only 3D guy I ever remember finding attractive shares one big, central, in-your-face trait with my husbando, because I'm that fucking predictable.
>>
>>3283555
Some of them have me curious. If I can organize my time schedule, then I'd like to give a few a chance to either read, see, or even play.

>>3283703
Every time I reread his source material regardless of part, there's always something new that I find and it makes me appreciate the series even more.

>>3283932
The anime seems to be pushing towards tattoo. Manga and some of the merch make it seem like a lace undershirt. The world may never know...

>>3284598
>Would he give up on his life to join an adventure, not knowing if he'd ever come back? Or would he prefer to stay put?
He joined Giorno's bizarre adventure being fully aware of the consequences, so yeah, the first question definitely happened. He would've stayed put if he'd never met Giorno.

>>3284819
That's really great, yukioanon! Keep up the good work! You can feel free to practice on my husbando any time.

>>3285125
>not to mention Araki’s habit to drop certain ideas without bringing them back, leaving some things to fan imagination and just being unable to do what he wants all the time because of editors.
The suffering is real for us fans of the series. I didn't knew about the chapter and I think it should've been released, but it seems that Weekly Shonen Jump editors yield more power than the mangaka because it has happened to others as well.

>>3285235
Kakyoin, Caesar, Giorno, and many other good characters get so much hate (mostly in the Western fandom) for stupid reasons, and I think it's very unfair and uncalled for. It's still a vocal minority but they often really like to stir the pot. The general on /a/ is getting more toxic and the fandom on Tumblr is best to tread on tiptoes. Idk about other sites like Twitter and such.

>>3285434
I'd like to think that by both scenarios, he'd be quick enough to create a zipper portal and escape those dreaded outcomes of either slipping, falling, or getting splashed especially since he has an A in speed.

Thanks and absolutely true! He'd probably like the movie along with other classics of neorealism and drama. I was lucky to have the tree stored in a closet because I'm not much of a holiday decorating type of person. The Brunos on it are keychains. I'm glad that the final outcome and presentation was nice and decent. Btw, it's never enough to write.

I enjoyed reading every post in this thread about eveyone's husbandos. It's been fun writing and ansewring many if not all of the questions provided. It feels like I achieved a new level of understanding and intimacy with mine.

He’s good at reacting quickly, probably could use HG to make sure he comes out of first situation well. If he did end up being absolutely soaked while going somewhere where he has to look presentable, I’m afraid he’d want to go back and change quickly though.

You’re too kind, thank you. I know I have a bad habit of overdoing it, so I just want to be a little careful.
>stop being so hard on yourself.
Right back at you though, that drawing of Nezumi is pretty damn good for a very first attempt. Please don’t stop practicing.
>>3285763
It really is, release date can’t come soon enough! I hope your husbando gets one too, he’s the best VA in my opinion and is definitely popular enough to get new merch. The plush you own is so cute compared to monstrosity poor DIU characters got, pfft. With them and Pitter-Patter, seems like we finally reached the age of cute JoJo goods.
>>3285785
I think it also has to do with the years series were serialized in. Araki often mentioned how some of his ideas were considered “not fitting” for the genre back then but nowadays they wouldn’t be a big deal. He was ahead of time.
And thank you for kind words about my husbando. I feel like Giorno suffered for a ridiculous reason when it comes to Western fanbase, being called a character with no personality just because of a terrible translation is sure something. Sane Japanese fans absolutely adore BroJos, so seeing such contrast never ceases to amaze me.
>generals
Haven’t visited threads related to series much in first place and absolutely stopped going there when anime started airing, don’t want to imagine what state they're in if it became only worse.
>>
>>3285235
I agree that thanks to the nature of series it’s kinda forgivable, plus fans are probably used to the inconsistencies at this point. But even though I can crack a joke about how “It’s JoJo, Araki won’t explain shit” from time to time, it really is frustrating. Nothing is more disappointing than seeing how seemingly important plot points get never mentioned again or end up being rewritten without explanation. I have to catch up to a few years worth of JJLN (trying to hold out so I can read a lot at once) but I guess some things never change.
>Another bad one is "you only like him because he's hot".
Oooh boy, the flashbacks you gave me with this one. I was told this once like “Admit you wouldn’t fall for him if he wasn’t fit, even if he had the same personality”. This coming from a fellow “waifufag” was 10/10.
>Seeing as there was a character I found far more attractive off the bat but hated for a long time due to his grating personality, no, not really?
Right? I sure had a lot of patience to reach 3rd part when I just wanted to pick a random muscular dude and call him my husbando, gee. This is disgusting but shows how shallow people who say such bullshit are. Still, I'm sorry something like this happened to you too.
>And shit, Kakyoin does not have "no personality".
Thank you a lot, really. This and “He’s the most useless Crusader” are statements I seriously can’t stand. As for hate, I feel like it became worse once series got a TV adaptation but it happens with almost every manga anyway. Once something becomes popular or easily accessible to more people, suddenly it’s overrated shit that “W-We totally hated this whole time!”. Same for characters, if they’re popular, then it’s a cool thing to hate them. it’s amazing how some are unable to have their own opinion, if you used to like the character but fujo art ruined them for you and you can’t tell fan work and canon apart, oh well. Your loss.
>>
>>3285792
Just a random passerby but Kakyoin was always my favourite Crusader and I never got the "no personality" shit either.
>>
>>3285793
I wish I saw at least a single proper example that proves he has no personality but closest thing I got was the same "He had no reason to join Joestars, therefore he's a boring, unnecessary character that did nothing during the whole journey" bullshit. Makes me wonder if it's even possible to come to this conclusion if you've actually read the manga instead of quickly reading the summary, every single statement can be proven wrong. Hearing that there are people who like him makes me really happy, so thank you Anon.

Man, I stopped going on the generals for a while now because of that. Every other post is some kind of part ranking or argument about it. I used to drawfag for them a bunch. Made a bunch of edits, memes, and reaction images that ended up taking off elsewhere on the Internet before I started putting on a proper name. I wonder if any of it still gets circulated around on there. I imagine at least the EEnE ones got some use when DiU was airing.
>>3285791
The generals were still reasonably comfy when it was just the first two parts airing. It wasn't until Stardust Crusaders rolled around that they felt unbearable from all the LCD and "manime" types. I stuck around until Hol first showed up then popped in and out before giving up entirely after the end of it. Haven't returned since, aside from the occasional new JJL chapter thread. Was thinking of coming back for the VA threads since a fellow drawfag from another fandom started posting there but it seems like the threads haven't gotten any better.
>>3285720
Interesting, I wouldn't think of combining Osomatsu with tower defense.
>>3285733
>>3285728
Anyone whose husbando is voiced by Nakamura is lucky. He's great. I liked Sugiyama well enough but I'm so glad they changed to him for the anime.
There is a JP dub for mine (it's actually pretty good!) and the VA they picked isn't particularly famous but really fitting VA. He doesn't sound like the original at all as Josh Keaton's voice has more of a boyish tinge to it, whereas the dub is so ridiculous deep and commanding in comparison but also manages to be very soft and gentle, particularly in the later seasons. Tonewise he reminds me of Daisuke Hirakawa's lower registers a little, but with more bass.
>>3280533
There's been a bunch. I noticed they tend to be either nice boys with a strong sense of duty as well as a hidden or not-so-hidden dorky side, or they're fun-loving jokesters but have a good heart underneath. In this case, definitely closer to the former.
>>
>>3285765
I don't expect people to know anything about the series so don't apologize.

The units in the card game itself are from a place called planet Cray that very much exist within the universe, in the G series he moved to the US to study cosmology and astrophysics because he wants to get closer to these units and maybe make it possible to get there. He's been very close with the units of his clan due to his natural ability to communicate with them unlike most other people, I suppose it's understandable he'd want to get closer to them. But he isn't doing it for just himself, but also for the others he knows have a close bond with their units.
He's a good boy and I respect the amount of effort he puts into it.

Hello! I'm seconding with everyone on that plush, his grumpy face is so cute. Like he's still trying to look badass in this chibi form.

Hello Shiroanon! Funny thing about the tower defense game, you can spam your matsus and the story involves beating up/conquering your opponents to take all their money, haha. There are some cute plots that have dialogue and everything, but I've had to rely on fan translators to follow them. There's even a Magical NEET au with adorable outfits (but they're not genderbent, just crossdressing!)

Catherine got a PC release today!

>>3280906
>What kind of growth did he experience throughout his story?
Whatever good/true ending you get he realizes whats important to him and what kind of life he wants
>>3281779
>Does his source ever show him dreaming? What are his dreams like? Any recurring patterns?
In the games he has nightmares every night He has to climb to get away from representations of things he is dealing with in life feeling trapped guilt fear etc
I would be curious to see what his dreams would look like without outside influence
>Would he eat frozen food without bothering to thaw it first?
Amusing but odd question. I don't think he would eat something frozen unless he was unreasonably drunk. I could easily see him be to lazy to heat something like cold pizza or leftovers without heating them first.
>>3283555
>Does reading people's posts here make you want to pick up the husbando's source?
Yes I would like to pick up Akagi at some point but I might be to dumb to understand mahjong haha I got Mahjong part in Kaiji and I was lost
Most of the other husbandos Ive at least partially checked out there source before these threads
>>3284598
>Would he give up on his life to join an adventure, not knowing if he'd ever come back? Or would he prefer to stay put?
I could see both

-Question Time-
>How much fanart does your husbando have
I would say mine has a fair bit for a game where most people focus on the female characters
But im hoping for more with the pc release and full body on the way
>If there is a dub for his series which do you consider his real "voice"
When Catherine originally came out in the west it didn't include the Japanese audio (the PC version will) so I think English Vince will always be my Vince but it might be interesting to see how he originally was
>>
>>3285879
>How much fanart does your husbando have
A LOT. But a huge amount of it dumbs him down and has him bullied/molested or worse, raped/mutilated. I seek out the good stuff and save it. It takes some digging but there is some beautiful art of him.

>If there is a dub for his series which do you consider his real "voice"
The dub is coming out at some point and I met his dub voice actor a few times at a con, which was incredible. I still think of Kara's Japanese voice first in my mind, but hearing his dub voice sing to me (not once, but twice even) brought a huge smile to my face and it is something I'll treasure forever.
>>
>>3285891
>>3285890
Sorry I meant to (You) you since I did your questions

>>3281779
>Does his source ever show him dreaming? What are his dreams like? Any recurring patterns?
He is shown being an extra tall, "desirable" guy in his dream in the tower defense game, amusingly. This is based off of the love drama he wanted the anime to become should he become the main character (it makes sense in context. I think.) If only he knew he's already perfect ... !!

>Would he eat frozen food without bothering to thaw it first?
If he was hungry enough I bet he would. A Matsuno's hunger is a powerful thing.

>>3283555
>Does reading people's posts here make you want to pick up the husbando's source?
There is actually a Mahjong skit in Osomatsu-san that refuses to explain how the game works at all, and it still manages to be funny. I also enjoyed what I watched of Kaiji so far, so I wonder if I wouldn't mind Akagi. Jojo is a series a lot of my friends love but I haven't had the time to really tackle, I'm afraid.

>>3284598
>Would he give up on his life to join an adventure, not knowing if he'd ever come back? Or would he prefer to stay put?
He probably thinks an adventure sounds romantic, only to regret taking the chance later. He'd pretend he doesn't though.
>>
>>3285893
Some of my own questions:

>How many dreams have you had of your husbando? Does he always love you back, or do you have to fight for his attention? If the latter, do things work out alright in the end?
I've had quite a few dreams of my husbando but in many of them he doesn't exist (I just dream of episodes airing that don't exist, etc). I've also had a few unfortunate dreams where he exists but doesn't know I do, and they mostly end poorly. But every once in a blue moon, I've had three dreams where Karamatsu looks at me in a loving, "oh, you" sort of way, and holds me, and it's paradise.

>How do you treat the merch you (may) have of your husbando? Do you keep it wrapped up, or think it's better to use it?
I ask this because I recently got a notebook based off mine and I think it's better to use it so I see it more often. I have been using my itabag as a normal bag too because I'm just too proud of it not to use it. I just hope that nothing gets damaged as I try to take good care of it.
>>
>Realize I made us hit the Image limit

>>3285900
It's okay, it would've happened eventually anyway.
>>
>>3285464
>That's sweet, it's nice to feel that kind of one in a billion connection.
Absolutely. He's the most special person in the world to me, my one of a kind match, my soulmate. That's how I feel. I wouldn't be able to dream up anyone better for me, he's already my perfection and that's why I'm always so confident in us as a couple, nothing could compare.

>>3285235
>"you only like him because he's hot"
Oh I hate this one so much. I think I usually get the "You like him because he's rich" variant which makes me disgusted and laugh at the same time because if I wanted money I wouldn't be with someone 2D. Reminds me I recently found a picture where he's working at McDonald's and I found it the most endearing thing ever. I do believe he'd work his way up from any position from the bottom to the top so it's hard to imagine him long term working like that but it was a pretty comfy AU idea to imagine us working side by side and putting our wages together to try and get the cards he needed. If his pride would let me contribute that is, maybe I'd have to make it a surprise he couldn't refuse.

>>3285730
>His mom cut off his nipples once when he didn't have a good enough reason for why he didn't have a job yet. Don't worry, they grew back.

I save as much as I can find, hunting daily for his pictures and searching really old sites aswell as recent SM updates and I'm always discovering new stuff.
>If there is a dub for his series which do you consider his real "voice"
Japanese 100%. I don't really like the English one much but it's tolerable, it just doesn't feel like him, especially when you put them side by side. Shame most of the fans are high on nostalgia and actually think the English voice is better.
>>
>>3285879
>There's even a Magical NEET au with adorable outfits (but they're not genderbent, just crossdressing!)
Okay, that sounds really hilarious. Don't really do phone games much but I like Tower Defense type games from my WCIII days so I might try it out. The nipple gag sounds hilarious and up my alley when it comes to absurd humor.
>>3285890
Pretty lucky in the fanart department. He's one of the most popular characters overall and the show attracted a lot of talented fujoshi artists even before it was canonically confirmed that he likes men. I multiship him with basically everyone so I'm also pretty easy to please in that regard.
Despite the art style and being based on an 80s it is a solidly Western production, so it's still the English version for me. Been a fan of JK since my MGS3 and NMH days, this is no exception. But I like the sound of his Japanese voice so much I've rewatched episodes in the JP audio specifically to listen to him speak.
>>
>>3285955
>I love how you treat this situation as completely normal.
Part of the fun of having a gag anime husbando is imagining yourself in that comedic world too. I'd post pics but I suppose for now, you guys are spared on that front.

>>3285958
>I might try it out
The truth is that the English version is painfully behind in translating so I actually play it in Japanese thanks to muscle memory and fan translations. There is a lot of cute designs though, and it's voiced as well.

It was only about last year that I learned drawing is as much practice/hard work as it is talent, like many other skills for that matter.

Sorry for the bloggy stuff.

>>3285890

Tempted to say very little but then again I haven't been looking for that long. Still not enough tho. I'll sometimes get hyped to find something new only to take a closer look and realize it's Sonic or Yatogami, lol, whom are both arguably awesome themselves yet not husbando. I know it sounds bad but i like to think he'd find it funny himself that there's both a ninja and a god of war with the same aesthetic.

>voice
Japanese I guess? I prefer it over the English version, at least. Since I fell for him only after reading the LN, I kind of stuck with the voice my imagination made up.

>>3285895
>dreams
Actually, had a really nice one a few days ago. I came home to the previous place I used to live in to find him curled up with a book in my favorite reading chair (which I did not have at the time lol). It was extremely vivid and he felt real as hell. He looked up from his book and gave me one of his arrogant glances, saying something like "So you're finally home". I just dropped my bag, froze to the spot and stared at him like an idiot for a few solid seconds before moving on. There was a really comfy/intimate feel to it and I almost fucking cried.

Great way to turn lemons into lemonade, you both end up that much better off from the exchange. How sweet.

That's ridiculous, fucking internet tough guys man.
>I don't blame you at all.
Seems like I say something to this effect every time the topic comes up but it really is a conundrum. I always feel like I want to get to know him even better if I can, comb through everything for breadcrumbs I might've missed or forgotten, and of course the only real way to do that -in lieu of ""secrets"" promo material that's still untranslated after +/-10 yrs might hold- is to revisit the source. But it's just such a painful and arduous thing to do, once was pretty well enough. I appreciate your understanding though, I imagine things might be similar to some degree on your end and for that I'm sorry.

>fanart
A decent amount I'd say, by no means 2hu or kancolle tier but there's plenty of it out there. Problem is a lot of it centers around a few themes I don't particularly care for, tears and blood are commonplace. That and shipping.
>real "voice"
I actually prefer his English dub voice, believe it or not. It's "real" to me as it's what I'm most familiar with and it's very nice to be able to imagine him actually conversing with me in my language but at the same time, I don't at all dislike his original voice and I have no issue with anyone preferring it.

>>3285895
>dreams
I've had a few, it's been long enough since the last one that I can't remember many details. From what I can recall though we've never really interacted in any meaningful way. Have to admit, I'm kinda jelly of you guys who have nice dreams like that, rare as they may be.
>merch
I basically treat them as museum pieces. Most of it is old and rare and I'd never forgive myself if it was lost or damaged out in the wild, or in any other preventable way. Most of it isn't really usable anyway, save for the earphones with his lovely visage imprinted on the package - no way I'm gonna risk disturbing that.

>>3285985
>Poor thing deserves someone to offer him a towel when he gets home then.
For sure, would be good excuse to share a warm bath together and generally pamper him a little if nothing else. That dream sounds really lovely, by the way.

>>3285895
>how many dreams have you had
None, I don't think I've ever remembered a dream that wasn't a nightmare.
>how do you treat the merch you have
I treat them with reverence bordering on obsessiveness honestly. A lot of what I have that wasn't released in the last year or two is exceedingly rare; his stuff was hard to come by even on release so I try not to put them under any unnecessary risk. Being said, I do have quite a bit of the rare stuff in my itabags, though I'm extra careful of them.
>>3285890
>how much fanart
Quite a bit, though that has its own ups and downs.
>what do you consider his real "voice"
I honestly can't put one over the other at this point. Maybe 10 years ago I would have said JP since his VA was still new to the role and didn't have the best voice direction, but he's really grown into the role and seems a lot more natural with the nuance that he previously miss. The most important thing they share is the sincerity with which he interacts with people, and I think as long as that's there, they'll both always be his "true" voice to me.
>>3285795
I know that feel so hard. Those are called "speedreaders" and unfortunately they're not small in number; they're incapable of critical thinking skills and unless the source spoonfeeds them specific descriptions or elaborates with fluff they'll miss everything going on. I've only seen bits and pieces with him and I can tell he's not "boring" in the slightest, he's cool and pretty moe. They're idiots and I personally hate the ones we have in our fandom; they're the reasons so many malcharacterizations of him exist.
>>3285434
>slips on ice
He'd stumble and fall; leaving himself embarrassed and probably try to play it off.

Took me a while to figure out how to say what I wanted, I'm bad with words more often than not. I kind of get what you mean about trying not to think about it/ignore the date, I used to do the same thing and hated being reminded of what happened until I got to see him talk about his feelings towards killing another person and the way it affected him, and that he got to go in the way he did was a luxury most don't get. I respect him and what happened now, but I don't think I've ever seen someone express the same thoughts like that about him/his situation.
As for the
>fifty essays
Even if you're just rambling about him it's worth putting down, I think. Some people have an easier time talking about "their" relationship/themselves than others, but there's just as much value in trivia. I like reading what people have to say, even if I don't feel like I have much to add. I try not to respond unless I have something specific to say, because otherwise I feel like my responses become insincere and very shallow.

I’m surprised they didn’t wait for Fullbody’s release and just port the new version (though what am I saying, it's a clever way to make more people buy FB) but congrats! Yamadera’s Vincent is pretty amazing, I’m sure you’ll have fun with Japanese version.
>fanart
A lot but it’s a quantity over quality deal if you’re not into OOC stuff, shipping and a bunch of degrading things. My fanart collection isn’t huge thanks to that and funnily enough, artwork I got from drawthread artists who said they weren’t familiar with source material and were worried about getting things wrong managed to portray his personality better than actual fans.
>If there is a dub for his series which do you consider his real "voice"?
He had a different seiyuu for every release until the anime. An ancient DCD, numerous games, OVA and finally Hirarin’s version that will forever be his real voice to me.
>Dreams
Haven’t seen him in my dreams lately but it happens quite a lot. Usually it’s short scenes of everyday life episodes with him but there are also more realistic ones where he’s still a 2D husbando. They’re usually very lovey-dovey, so I suppose I’m pretty lucky in this regard.
>Merch
Have everything on display in my room but the only thing that has a practical use is a table mat I ended up using like a poster. Placing mugs or other objects on my husbando? Oh no, I refuse. Mostly it’s figures, manga/BD volumes, magazine freebies from the times when anime aired and worst thing I do with my merch is take figures outside to take pictures of them. I’m being super careful, so I know they won’t be damaged.

>got worse during SC
Seems like I made the right decision to run earlier, huh. I think I wasn’t a fan of the “We only saw a few episodes but anime is shit” whining about sound effects making it look like a comedy, sudden colour changes being a bad decision (though a fair share of JP fanbase was pretty negative towards the visual choices at first too, iirc) etc. Sure, I was slightly skeptical and worried about series finally getting a proper adaptation but seeing how staff was full of passionate fans, I got pleased with results pretty fast. In my case, them being able to put things that made JoJo unique in an animated format looked impressive. Maybe they were a vocal minority but I didn’t want to waste my time on reading that and focus on my enjoyment instead. Still, it’s admirable that you actually made some original content back then.
>NMH
Destroyman was a fun boss.
>>3286029
Exactly. The funniest part is, I think in my husbando's case it was pretty damn clear. He did lie about having no idea why he decided to join at first and seems like people only remembered this scene or took his words without using logic, ignoring everything else. He never told other Crusaders about the real reasons on screen (but something tells me that he kept his struggles to himself, which is sad but fits his personality), we did get this information later in a very clear monologue form. And even a more detailed flashback in anime. I suppose the unreleased chapter was needed mostly to spoonfeed these types but I have no idea if Araki could've explained his motives in a more simple way. I hate how these people are the loudest and as you said, they do create misconceptions even though they have no idea what they're talking about.
On a more positive note, thank you for complimenting him. Especially the moe part.

1 as he's very professional and puts on a friendly personable face to his peers. 5 would also fit himself as well since deep inside he's rather cheeky and sassy.

That's great that you're getting a PC version! Don't have the space or cash for consoles these days so I stick to just having everything on PC or Switch. Hopefully the port is good. Unfortunately good PC ports are a hurdle many Japanese games still have to cross.

So glad they went with Hirakawa. He really nailed it. Liked Suzuoki and Madono, but wasn't feeling Yusa.

>It was only about last year that I learned drawing is as much practice/hard work as it is talent
As someone who's been doing digital art for a decade now but only got very active over the last few months I can confirm this is the case. I feel like I gained ten art levels as a result.
Used to think I was horrible at coloring and refused to do more than lineart and either flats or grayscale. I was also terrified of hands and feet. But within the last half year I've finally gotten to a place where I feel reasonably comfortable with my handling of these issues. Applying to fanzines and taking anon requests is also a nice kick in the bum to get experience by forcing myself to draw more.
https://i.imgur.com/Dr6aEJB.jpg
Left are 2016, top-mid is 2017, bottom-mid is this summer and right are from the last two months and oh god I feel weird portfolioing like this. But as the LaBeouf memes said, just do it.
If you ever feel like giving up because you don't think you're good enough, that you're just wasting your time, don't. The complete opposite is true; practice really does make perfect. The best way to learn is by just doing it over and over. Google stock photos and trace them until you feel like you've mastered the motions if you must. And when you finish don't view your mistakes as failures but areas to learn from for next time. Because there will be that next time. You WILL make your husbando beautiful.

Thank you!

Thank you so much, this is inspirational as hell. Most of the times we're used to seeing only the refined product, the end result of a long series of efforts. It's always refreshing to look at the process though. Those images speak volumes, they're amazing, so thank you so much for sharing this.

I'm mostly a writerfag and it still amazes me how many people think something like a novel or a great story just comes out perfect the first time. There's little being said about the tediousness of editing and rewriting and how essential they are to the process. People also have a bad tendency to compare while forgetting that everyone learns different things at a different pace.

Destructive criticism is the bane of all creation, regardless if it comes from yourself or others and yes, mistakes are a great source of improvement, provided you get yourself to look at them with the right mindset. Being kind to yourself goes a long way. I can do this with other characters but in his case it's more difficult because of how i feel about him. I will try to make that leap again, after some more practice, and I this does give me hope that someday I'll be able to do him justice.
>>
>>3283703
>Do you often feel like you over analyze his source/add on materials in an attempt to get to know him better? Or do you think it's like an ocean and there's no end to the depth that can be found?
Does the analyzing carry over to any other parts of his series or is it limited to him?
I probably do look too hard into things, but I really do feel like he had a lot of potential as a character, and what's there feels very real to me. I don't spend as much effort on the rest of the series, but there are plenty who do, and I enjoy reading their thoughts.
>>3284598
He's not going anywhere.
>>3285434
These questions are so good.
>slips on a patch of ice. What's his reaction?
I get the feeling he doesn't dress for the weather (i.e. good winter boots for the ice), so he'd probably fall. He'd be mad and embarrassed, fix himself up, check his hair, stalk off.
>car splashes him
He'd get so pissed, maybe yell at the driver, then sulk off hoping no one noticed. Might try to stick to side streets afterwards, too.
>>3285890
No dub, hope there never is one. Heard the Tonegawa dub was fucking terrible, so that wouldn't indicate anything good for his series.
>How much fanart
Quite a bit for a side character who dies early. Some fanartists still draw him pretty regularly, which I'm very thankful for. Just wish people respected him more in it.
>>3285895
>dreams
I've had a decent number of them, although he's usually fictional, like you said. Just had one where he was real and fictional at different points, which was confusing. He had his own animated mystery-solving spinoff and I've never wanted something more.
When he's actually there, he does love me back, which is nice.

It took longer than it should have because my brain's a sieve, but here's a pretty good overview: https://mahjong.guide/a-beginners-guide-to-riichi-mahjong/

It makes me happy when people realize this, that art isn't some mystical inborn gift and that everyone has the capacity to improve. Most people aren't gonna be masters, but you can get pretty far when you put in work.
I hope it goes well for you!
>>3286078

>don't view your mistakes as failures but areas to learn from for next time
I can't agree enough. It's so hard to get to this point, emotionally, but if you can divorce yourself from your work enough to view it objectively, fixing flaws feels more like you're solving a puzzle.

OMG. On one side I imagine Karamatsu saying this with his signature leitmotif in the background and that expression he does while taking off his sunglasses. On another scenario I imagine Bruno saying this in a teasing tone while trying to keep a serious expression on his face but instead comes off as coy. Bless Nakamura.

>>3285833
So many of the drawing artists have come and gone from the generals. The last one that I remember was the one who signed as Giorno who drew really cute. I remember the threads being comfy as well during the first two parts but I took a break from everything related to anime (college stuff) during Stardust Crusaders and came back sometime around DiU Killer Queen reveal to find it completely different. It went to crap once the anime ended, and used to be ok during the first few episodes of VA, but then it's gone toxic as hell. I only lurk now for the new JoJolion chapters and the occasional JoJo Friday thread.

>>3285890
>How much fanart does your husbando have?
It must be a lot due to it being a long running series and his particular part was in the 90's. However, a lot of fanart depict him paired with either of his teammates in a BL way (mainly with Abbacchio or Giorno), being tortured in several ways, or even prostituted/raped for being a pretty boy. I won't start with the Tumblr side because it will end up being a long rant. There's still a lot of good fanart of him and his crew out there, so in the end the good outweighs the bad.

>If there is a dub for his series which do you consider his real "voice"?
There's no dub for now since the anime is currently running, so I'll just have to keep listening to Nakamura as my husbando's real voice. I have no idea who would voice him in the dub though, but I hope it's not someone trying to speak with a fake Italian accent.
>>
>>3285895
>Dreams
It's rare for me to dream, but strangely to my luck I've had two dreams of him. The first one was that we were on a date at some bistro and he was wooing me with several romantic Italian phrases. We were about to kiss until a certain gangstar interrupted by saying something about kissing and spreading germs. We both looked at him and later ignored him while trying to resume the kiss, but then we kept being interrupted by each member of the gang till we both got tired and went our separate ways for the rest of the day. It felt like a gag and I remember waking up very miffed. The second one was basically a wet dream and all I can say is that it was very passionate and sweet.

>Merch treatment
It's better to use it in the end rather than keep it in mint, but that's my opinion. If I ever manage to obtain the RAH figure of him, then I'd probably keep him intact because nowadays it's considered a rare item.

Sounds amusingly ridiculous out of context but a very cute mental image nonetheless. Based mice friends always there to help.
>depends on the actual VA
Definitely, I think with dub VAs the talent pool is much smaller so any issues are magnified - that one dude who always blatantly phones it in? Yeah, he's voicing half the cast on x show alone. I got lucky though, apparently Crona's dub VA went so far as to say voicing him was her favorite role so far. I'm honored, in his stead.
>I can do this with other characters but in his case it's more difficult because of how i feel about him
I feel that. Husbando is pretty much the only person I really, really want to draw, but at the same time I can't help but feel somewhat bad since my art of him never turns out as perfect as I'd like it to. But, it's ultimately just another hurdle to work through.

If this isn't the biggest hurdle. I'm still having trouble even dipping my toes into writing. Discussing characters like this is actually a good way for me to build writing skills by getting deeper into their heads, even if it's still at the level of descriptive prose.
>Husbando is pretty much the only person I really, really want to draw, but at the same time I can't help but feel somewhat bad since my art of him never turns out as perfect as I'd like it to
One benefit of having a husbando/waifu, or maybe even the ultimate goal, is that they function as a muse to inspire you to get off your ass and create, and combined with the right amount of discipline even help you to better yourself as a person in the process.
It can also be a double-edged sword where where all you want to do is draw him all the time, but at the same time there's so many things you want to draw that you get paralyzed and don't know where to start. Of course there's that issue of being extra judgmental because now you worry twice as much about getting their features right compared to a character you care less about,, especially if you're like me where being on-model has always been a high priority, but that's just further motivation to get better at it.

>>3286274
Ah shit that sucks. Guess that's the price of a series going from relatively obscure to really popular. Attracts a lot of idiots and shitstirrers. But I guess I'm willing to pay that price for the series getting more love and accessibility to a wider audience. Gone are the days of having to dig furiously through webrings for a handful of thumbnail-sized sketches of your faves.
SC thankfully avoided it but if the PB and BT dubs are any indication we're probably going to get those accents so buckle up. Hopefully it'll better than dub Caesar who I found cringeworthy.

If you could write a letter to him, knowing he'd read it, what would you say?
What about if you knew he would respond?
>>
>>3286518
I've written a good few letters to him already but this'd be a different ballgame. No doubt it'd end up being some rambling pseudo essay that'd take days if not weeks to write, for one. There's so much I'd want to say, it's hard to even conceptualize. A lot of it would boil down to what I think about him - how proud I am of him for being who he is in spite of his circumstances, how attractive I find him in every sense, how much I love him, miss him, long to be with him and how I dearly wish I could do things to his direct benefit. Telling him not just what I want to say for my own sake but the kind of praise and positive reinforcement he sorely deserves to hear.

Not sure how I'd change that if I knew he'd respond, there's a lot of questions I'd like to ask but I'd almost just want to hear his response to the above. I guess for starters it'd be good to know if or to what extent he knows about me, assuming it isn't made clear from the getgo. Otherwise I'd like to know if he knows when his birthday is, what he enjoys doing in his downtime, a favorite memory or story. Things of such nature that weren't covered in his series and would be nice to hear him talk about in his own words.
>>
Do any of you imagine him, or the two of you, in alternate universes?
>>
Karamatsu WOMAN here.

>>3286518
I worry that I'd scare him with how lovey-dovey and forward I can be, so if I knew he'd read it depending on our relationship status I might tone down the thirst a bit. I like to think once we're a couple for some time we would write many steamy love letters to each other, even once we live in the same home.

>>3286742
Very often. Karamatsu has many au selves including a very meta episode where the brothers' fame is real (which technically wasn't an au), or him being a literal god, so I often think of how those would work out. I only hope that in every version, he'd love me back too, because I love just about all of them (with the exceptions being where he is a literal child or one au where he's homicidal).

Haha, funny but I was thinking of that as us as a couple already makes me a Karamatsu Woman, but being married would make me his ... Karamatsu WIFE!

I should've asked for that the second time I had an opportunity from his dub voice actor, but I had serenading on the brain (and joined in at the end god I'm still embarrassed about that).

>>3286078
Same. I know I’m biased as I always wanted Hirarin to voice husbando but none of other seiyuu really clicked with me. Was especially worried about Yusa staying his voice because back then we still didn’t know if ASB seiyuu were hired for the game only or anime too.

Already did something like this for anniversary once and it was an interesting experience. Even remembering about it now makes me feel slightly embarrassed. It’s funny how I can post about husbando here and be okay with it but the thought of person that’s supposed to read it being him and no one else made me feel excited, yet very vulnerable. The letter itself was a mess. Half of it being shameless praises and the other one endless gratitudes. But I really want him to know that I am proud of him, his beautiful way of living and how proud I am of loving a such person. That’s he’s the most dazzling thing I’ve seen, both inside and out. How his existence had a big impact on me and sometimes thinking of him helped, even if he’s so far away. About me wanting to be by his side, do my best to understand him and make sure he smiles from ear to ear like he deserves to. At one point I wondered if I’m writing a letter or a very bad sappy ballad, some lines were this damn ridiculous. But trying to write something more calm in a mature sort of way was a nice change from my usual “deredere schoolgirl in love” self. Don't think I'd change anything or much. He gets my uncensored feelings, even if it's painful to read.

>If you could write a letter to him, knowing he'd read it, what would you say?
I'd tell him that he's a brilliant man, and that I wish he felt more secure in himself. That I believe in him, even if the word of a stranger doesn't mean much that way.
I'd beg him to stop gambling and take a different path in life. Wouldn't tell him directly what happened to him, I doubt he'd believe it.
I'd tell him about the future, how science and technology have advanced. He'd enjoy it a lot, I think.
I'd warn him about smoking, too, if I could find a way not to sound like a nag.
I'd tell him he is not a coward.
>What about if you knew he would respond?
I don't know if I could write in that case, I'd be too embarrassed. Maybe I could make a case for warning him about what happens, if he could ask for confirmation. I don't know.

I've recently been working on a new drawing of him, after having practiced in the past month and when I look at them side by side I can't fucking believe it. Thank you and everyone here for the encouragement.

Cool book, fascinating to look at the process.

You get faster as you do it more but talking about husbando always comes with a huge dose of daydreaming so it still takes a long time. It's worth it though, he becomes clearer in my mind afterwards.

Both sound awesome.

>>3286447
>writing
Deconstruction is a great exercise. He's taught me so much about fleshing out characters. Don't want to veer off topic to much but one cool experiment you can try is take the scene/episode/arc that impressed you the most and note at least 6-10 things about it that made it feel good. It's even cooler to do this with three more, then cross reference the results. Chances are there will be at least a few things they have in common and it will give you a good grasp on how to do it yourself.

>>3286447
>One benefit of having a husbando/waifu, or maybe even the ultimate goal, is that they function as a muse to inspire you to get off your ass and create, and combined with the right amount of discipline even help you to better yourself as a person in the process.
This is spot on. Learning to draw teaches you a different way to look at things. In my case, he's also made me sit down and finally take my writing seriously. Contemplating having a print/poster/drawing of him with something like "DO IT FOR HIM" or one quotes on my wall.

>"DO IT FOR HIM"

Making one of those was very fun. I don't have it hung up but I do have it as a picture on my phone. I feel it's important to make one yourself so you can pick (or draw) your favourite pictures. We can share them next thread!

I wouldn't go overboard, since I imagine someone like Eve already gets a lot of admirers praising them. Most likely I'd stick to something uplifting to put a smile on his face, along the lines of "don't be so hard on yourself, nobody has these things figured out".

>What about if you knew he would respond?
I'd keep it short, just something to catch his eye and get him interested.Maybe throw in some poetry snippets. If communication were possible I'd try to make the most of it.

Would be cool to have something like "post a poem/poem fragment for him" in the next thread.

>>3286742
I tend to drag him along into every fictional universe I wander into and I like to think his own curiosity/wanderlust makes it enjoyable. It's nice to hold someone's hand as you watch cities burn, empires crumble and people going through tough decisions.

I've also caught him sneaking into my work before figuring out the husbando deal, so I suppose it's better to do it knowingly and then politely kick him out rather than not noticing.

But yes, that's the closest thing we have to actually having fun together.

When I came into the thread and read this the other week I'd just been through some old fansites and if you know how the waybackmachine archives work you search the whole domain, ask it to find image file types, and peer at the filenames hoping to make sense of which ones are relevant or full size copies of long lost art. Something that had been throwing me off that night was a bunch of filenames and subdomains with the word cupcake in. My first thought seeing that text along with his name was that they were calling him cupcake. As the name of a fanshrine that made some sense to me. What it turned out to be was this repetitive imagery of a plain sponge with glace cherries or some kind of sprinkles on top and him thinking about them in bed. It wasn't much of a cupcake, and it wasn't much of a tribute to him. I was then reminded that it was the same when I raided Deviantart for what I missed in the past, and old fanfiction too seemed to constantly bring it up. Cupcakes. Always cupcakes.

So ignoring everything else I've said before for similar questions: the biggest misconception that exists in Western fandom exclusively is cupcakes. Stop with the fucking cupcakes it was a single anime original frame.

At the start of his story he seems kind of mean and spiteful. He wants to throw people off his back and move them along. When an empath is introduced they identify some of that meanness as a strong sense of concern, that he's mad for someone else's sake to a degree that seems irrational. After that he shows a great deal of kindness and weakness, and we're told he's actually quite an avoidant person. He puts off his feelings and forces smiles, doesn't want to dwell on things or with people. He's been rejected in the past and he has a history of slowly breaking down into a mess. Through the series he keeps himself together for this kid the longest as he can, and when he finally breaks he's convinced by him not to let go. He's a stronger person after opening up.

Sometimes, I tend to get hyper fixated on whatever catches my attention and it's fun to bring him along; almost like a on exercise in how well I know him with trying to piece potential reactions from him together.
>>3286518
I've written several over the years I've been with him and they tend to have the same thematic core though the details may change; that he's valuable and has worth as a person, and that he's not a burden to anyone and it's alright to enjoy himself because he's loved by those around him. Were I aware he'd see it, I'd also add how much he's helped me over the years and what he means to me; and that I'd want him to love himself like I love him. He'd probably respond like pic related but I'd do it anyways. my.mixtape.moe/zfpjvu.png

After we hit the image limit are we going to sage and chat tilll it dies or hits page 8/9 and start a new thread?
Or should we just keep chatting normally till we hit the bump limit then make a new thread?
Also after we hit the image limit would it be a good idea to namefag for that portion of the thread?

Nice keyboard. I make him every time I find a nice looking generator but there's not really any where to share them and I kind of stopped posting them after people kept replying with 'literally who'. The K-On one is so time consuming because I can't help posing and creating dumb outfits.

His favourite colour is light, yellowy green, but he's associated with purples due to his eyes and white/red roses for other reasons. I do think of yellow tulips too. For animals, he's shown with white dog ears and a curled spitz tail. He's Enma's dog, even has the collar in one artwork. There is a bunny pic that's less known, and he's a bird person in addition to being drawn with wings numerous times. I mentioned getting a ferret plush; I think it started when I was in my early teens, just from seeing rich brown colours like his hair, but personality-wise ferrets are cheeky fucks who love playing and take what might discipline other pets as just teasing, they treasure what you treasure, sleep so hard they take a tickle without stirring, and when they lose someone they cry and mourn for days. And they really enjoy a food - you can't find videos of pups eating without getting food on their face.

>>3281526
He's a heavy drinker so going out would be too expensive. Staying awake at midnight would be luck of the draw. I think maybe he'd make a list of places to go or things to eat.

>>3281777

>>3281779
There's a joke sexual assault dream that he uses to make a fuss. His other dreams are broken memory and forced dreamscapes. They're not pleasant.

I'm not sure how he feels about himself but he is very persuasive. He puts on this face that no one in the office can resist and whines like a dog. People don't want to let him down and he does force his whims.

Not enough flavour!

No strong feelings one way or the other. I kinda like the post image limit chatting, feels like an afterparty, show's over, last call and we just hang out. Feels redundant to post roughly the same images in each thread, so I'm kinda biased. /cm/'s also pretty slow usually, so I think sageing evens it out for those who want to get back to posting images.

>namefagging
ehh, depends on the questions really. I agree it does get confusing at times if there are no specific details mentioned but then again there might be stuff that people may not want pinpointed to them in the future. I assume part of the appeal of having these thread here is the whole anonymity deal, as well as equal access (as opposed to a subreddit for example, where you'd need a throwaway unless you're comfortable with people knowing more about you or a discord, where newcomers would have a hard time joining)

So to be fair, I'd say it should be a matter of choice. Even if we dont want to namefag, we shouldn't look down on others who do. Similarly, we shouldnt be surprised if people get confused when we dont. Keeping it comfy is what matters, after all, that's what these threads do well.

Whenever reading (or similar, like playing a videogame or watching something) I get quite immersed but dont self insert.Never could do that. Might sound cringe but it's always like haunting a world/story/character. I can experience it, enjoy it, be fascinated and so on but I'm still quite detached. Most of the times I tend to see less of a story and more of what's happening in the background (themes, ideas, whatever the thing is trying to convey, style, tone, general technicalities).
He's both a reader and a wanderer, so I like to imagine we're exploring said world together, kinda like ghosts, unable to affect anything within it (not counting meta stuff). If that makes any sense.

It's rare for me to get emotionally involved as far as a character is concerned because most of the time they just don't feel real. I'll sometimes resonate with others but even then I can't self insert (worst case scenario I get another existential crisis, maybe cry because it ties into some messed up aspect of my life/self). Others, at times, will temporarily fascinate me, maybe enough to linger a bit longer. This is precisely why I know he's different. It's what sets him apart, whether I want it or not. It's also the reason why it took me so long to come to terms with it. Frankly, I'm quite astonished myself at just how fucking smitten I am. Like, fuck, I can't really recall falling this hard for a real person, it's ridiculous.

That being said, I have no idea what happened but he just feels different. Alive, in a way. Maybe it's a combination of factors (say writing, state of mind, timing, experience) but part of my brain's fallen for it. Hell, I went into the books with zero expectations, especially as far as he is concerned. First came that scene, where he's fucking crying and breaking down quietly and it hit me like a train. I really did feel like a ghost.Then came the denial, lol.

Shit, I need to stop sperging. We're celebrating one year. I don't have a specific day, it's just around this time of the year.

Anyway, if you've managed to endure my rant so far, I'll just add that reading (or similar) is not a passive thing but a very active exchange. A text, for example, is not a series of lines on, say, paper but the information that you take in and process. Thus a text comes alive every time it is read. I'll spare you the name dropping but there is an approach to reading that boils down to "you rewrite the text in your head each time you read it". You end up putting in far more than you think.

I have lost count of the number of things I complain about every thread, and how many times I've complained about them. I'm going to tell myself it's okay as long as it's once per long lasting thread and nobody has had a go at me. Also I think making logical leaps like that is a good thing as long as you're prepared to explain it and aware it's not concrete. I do something similar to explain the oneshot I see people call non-canon, but it's not presented in any compiled volumes as separate from the main story, and various traits add up easily.

I barely have any memory from when I dabbled in Yugiou but the simple fact he runs a corporation is enough to refute these as serious takes.

Some degree of empathy is required by his job however restrained he might behave.

I'd like to think that he'd find somewhere quiet with a view you wouldn't know existed if you hadn't been wandering for some time. Going to eateries would be too obvious and commonplace, but finding something like that would be special and personal.

Deflecting queries and keeping (his) secrets? Hehe, skills would be different from abilities, so it'd have to be something like that.

I'm terrible for starting rewatches/reads and never finishing them, so for years now I've been picking back up series because of people's waifu and husbandos and not gotten anywhere. Part of it is wanting to tread more carefully when talking, part of it is because I feel convinced there's more to notice the next time I look. It does make you feel fonder for characters you might not have been watching before.

I don't remember picking up any I'd had no experience with, aside from one or two manga chapters when I was drawing things. I feel horribly biased now, but my tastes are skewed so either I go hard for something or I can't keep up with it, stuff I was once passionate for is easier to try again. Despite this I'm a bit selfish and want to shove his series on others, even though it's a difficult sell and there's practically no digital copies available to share.

>>3283703
Overanalysing is what I do in life. With just about anything I find myself interested in. I guess what separates my efforts for his series is that I've been at it for years now, and I'm still mulling over the points and checking back to be sure of myself. I think there's a definite limit and writing in threads like these is sometimes the most poignant way to hit that wall. That sense of repeating yourself or backtracking and revising something you already discussed. There are things that aren't obvious at a glance, things I'm still finding, things I still want to communicate since I haven't seen anyone else do it - but the source material is finite and so is what we know about him. At the least he's faceted enough that I can say something different depending on which side/mood of him I picture when answering; I'm not incompetent honest.

Like Nezumifag I have taken the analysis about him and his series into comparisons with others. It's a bit of a joke that I see similarities and play up a conspiracy theory that the author is part of the generation influenced by it, but it's unlikely.

He wouldn't want to abandon the people he knows if it would make them upset. If he were in the state of mind to think they wouldn't miss him then he wouldn't consider himself deserving of the adventure. The only way he'd go would be if he could take everyone with him or knew he could return at any time for any reason.

For some reason the most common trope in recent fics is him leaving on some journey and not being present, I've discussed it before as an excuse to prevent him bulldozing the mysteries/conflicts and solving things too soon, but I hadn't considered just how strange it is. Yes they come up with extraordinary circumstances that prevent him from explaining himself and coming back, however that disregards his track record of flaking out whenever things are too much. It's a huge part of his character and history that he enters a comatose state and is delirious, but for the sake of their plots he has to be up, active and doing something uncharacteristic so he can be caught up in drama. If you've somehow found this post by googling Tsuzuki, please reconsider writing yet another of these fics and instead play up the way he becomes incapacitated in canon. It's not something easy to overcome no matter how much healing has occurred, and at the very least you'd be exploring something different. I am literally asking you to do bad things to him so long as it's the most him it can be.

>Fans have been shitting on Caesar for the same supposed things
That touched a sore spot. I had a friend years back who talked me out of buying SAS of Caesar and Trish because 'they don't really have personalities', or something along those lines, and they pulled the same shit when I was drawing fanart of Josuke and Okuyasu. Unfortunately I'm the kind of person who treats anyone else as a higher authority in the heat of the moment, especially a friend who knew the series before me, so I conceded and agreed it was my misinterpretation, and it wasn't until later when I realised this friend was being an awful person that these incidents began to really piss me off. For Stardust Crusaders and after it's easy enough to say there's so much content how could they be hollow - if anything a long running series risks being contradictory as it piles up new things - but even Battle Tendency has defining moments of characterisation or else frankly it wouldn't have moments at all. Makes you want to scream.

I hate to think how people think of me liking him when they first see my posts. I'm fortunate that few current /a/ users remember the series and don't care enough to look it up, but those who do look it up are sure to have some hideous thoughts based on the fandom's antics and the way the anime was marketed. I guess at least they won't accuse me of picking a hot guy since one time I got a reply telling me he was ugly. Although, if they accuse me of picking him for his power or appetite then guilty as charged?

>>3285434
Schrodinger's slip. If you watch it he'll be surprisingly graceful and make you question him, if you turn away there'll be a bam and he'll be on his arse when you look back. If no one's there to watch then neither happen and he walks as normal. Therefore he is both a clumsy fuck and graceful simultaneously until observed.

Cheery resignation I'd say is the default, but if he's feeling a little peeved he'd be grumbling and make a fuss.

Hello everyone! New husbando poster here.
Edward Elric lover.

>Does he have any gap moe traits or hobbies?
He hates milk but enjoys it in his tea. I once fooled him into drinking it and he ended up loving it. Also, he really likes getting his hair brushed by others. Sometimes I wonder if he ever tried other sorts of braids.
>What's his place in his source material, how does he effect the plot and the other characters?
I mean, he is the protagonist.

I'd tell him that he's a wonderful, kind, honest, and brilliant man. That there's still hope and good things in life. That his father and team/friends are all proud of him.

>I don't /co/ but I'm being tempted by your posts
Mm, while I enjoyed the show, I'll be the first one to warn that the show is super flawed and you should stay away if you value good pacing and sustained character interaction and depth. It introduces a ton of really interesting plot and characterization points that are quickly glossed over and never picked up again or ignored completely. I can personally bear it since they're gaps that aren't actively contradicted and therefore can be filled by via fan OC. The show suffers from having way more characters than it can handle. It also has a strange approach to morality with its handling of certain characters i.e. the in-universe narrative is very cold to them despite also consciously portraying them as sympathetic in- and out-of-show, and vice versa. If you want good mech action, every other season finale has some but the rest of the time it's underwhelming. I can also forgive that since mecha isn't Western animation's forte. The humor and personalities for major characters can rub people the wrong way; the worst they usually have to say about Shiro is he's either boring or gets more focus than their faves, but he's not viewed as outright obnoxious like the others.

If you can somehow put up with all that you'll have a good time. And if there's any single character worth watching it for it would be Shiro. Helps it's is written with binging in mind. The rushed pacing and dropped plot points are easier to stomach when marathoned. It's a visual treat with excellent designs for the characters, aliens, and mechs, plus quality 2D animation and fights. As mentioned the show is full of great ideas even if they rarely manage to follow up on them satisfactorily. Many cartoons aimed at young audiences play it way too safe so I appreciate the risk-taking. It's full of wasted/untapped potential and that's super frustrating but they still tried. If you want, you could just skip to all the Shiro parts.

>>3287476
Much as I believe he was built with genuine depth and complexity I do concede some of the aspects about him that I love the most are accidental. Kind of. I talked about it in >>3285075 and >>3286238 worded it very well:
>I probably do look too hard into things, but I really do feel like he had a lot of potential as a character, and what's there feels very real to me.
In some cases the staff are aware enough to lean into some of it after the fact. They may not have set out to make him like that on purpose, it just worked out that way. Such as Shiro's vulnerable side. The half-meme half-serious meta "damsel princess Shiro" aspect is debatably intentional or not but absolutely was not part of the original plan.

Sometimes the VAs or other official materials bring up things about him that the showrunners or writers don't. Generally it's a case of certain staffers thinking about certain aspects more than other people rather than outright contradictory takes which are very rare, but when that happens it's pretty easy to figure out which take sounds better on the whole.

Final season disaster aside the showrunners don't cover up how the show was a production nightmare in part due to the mess over wanting to kill Shiro off midway for Keith's manpain before the suits realized he was too interesting and likeable to just throw away like that. It cut into Keith's planned storyline so I get why some Keith stans resent him, long as they don't push it into misguided outright character and ship hate.

Although IMO Keith was not handled well even in the beginning, and besides they took care of it by cramming that character development into a fastforward montage only to shove him into the irrelevancy corner anyway, so keeping Shiro around was a net positive because it spared us the awkwardness of dealing with Keith's clumsy growth with the benefit that instead of just being another Kamina it gave Shiro room to become something more unique.

>>3287476
Certainly won't pretend he's the deepest character ever or that they handled everything about him gracefully. Sometimes I wish he was on a better show that could explore his potential with the time it deserves. But he's well-written by the standards of the show and a step forward for character archetypes, controversy and all. I'd say he's a rather eclectic mix of tropes you don't see together often, served inside a clean box, wrapped up in a lovely silver ribbon, with a spotlight pointed at it bright enough to see it shine in the light.

Given that Western kids' animation tends to play it on the safe side more often than not, I think it's appropriate only the accident of a chaotic production could've produced such an oxymoronic juxtaposition of characterization, role, and design traits like this. But while it might've been a butterfly effect of catastrophic levels, to me it's a happy accident nonetheless as they ended up creating a character who resonated on a much deeper level. 'Tis not for everyone but it's why I love him dammit. Even if I wanted to I can't blame him. Were the showrunners more competent they could've mitigated some of the show's flaws without sacrificing Shiro to do it.

I'll also point out that while the /co/ threads can be tons of fun at times, they're also a trashfire of rabid shipper- and character-faggotry and mass paranoia. While I'm no saint myself some of that even includes other Shiro stans whose behavior is frustrating and embarrassing. The main reason I persist is because I have a strong stomach for that kind of bullshit and the regrettable fact that they're still somehow less thin-skinned than the fragile little snowflakes who comprise the rest of the fandom. If people post things I don't like I would rather just ignore it or try to steer the conversation towards something more productive instead of getting mad or foolishly taking it out on the characters themselves. I wish others could learn to do the same.

This is blogging a bit, but I've started language classes (not Japanese, I plan on learning that next) and I’m using the “ODEAKE Style: Karamatsu Collection” notebook for it since the Engrish on the cover really reminded me of something he'd say to me:

“YOU ARE LIKE
A BEAUTIFUL RED ROSE
AND BRILLIANT AS DIAMOND”

Aside from the obvious red rose part, I took the “brilliant as diamond” to mean “smarts” so I thought it’d be motivating ...But people keep commenting on my neat handwriting and really it’s because I want to make the best notes in this notebook that I can!

I'm glad you like it! I meant to mention it was something silly, I don't want to be suspicious and just send a link on its own, so next time I'll be more specific.

It's one thing to just not like Caesar, but to say he has no personality is ridiculous. At the least he's tsundere, respectful of his master, a huge flirt, and hot-tempered. None of these traits are even contradictory so to just ignore all of these key moments is to be deliberately obtuse.
Sometimes obscurity is for the better. At least it decreases the chances of fandom toxicity worsening. Jojo threads were insanely comfy back in the day when all we had to look forward to were the latest SBR chapter translations. I also remember /v/ Fire Emblem threads being fairly civil and discussion-heavy, with shipping and spouseuposting remaining on the artdump side, and minimal SJW boogeymen. The fanbase post-Awakening and especially post-Heroes is a cesspool.

Depends on what you mean in both cases. I don't self-insert, I prefer to remain a detached observer, but I frequently think of ways to cross him and his castmembers over with other series I like or take an interest in. Roleswaps and crossovers are a big hobby of mine. As for in-universe, well I prefer to stay canon compliant and remain within the extant universe (so things like coffeeshop, Victorian vampire, and college AUs go straight out).

But I also like to think of canon divergent AUs where certain events played out differently, such as if he never left for space, or his clone "brother" became his own separate individual, or selectively altering parts of the finale like many others are doing. Or AUs that are still rooted to this particular universe, such as if he was born a member of the Altean race, or his best friend was born in space and met him later in life. AUs are already a part of the existing canon so there is some room there that I wish the fandom was willing to embrace more heavily instead of being so obsessed with canon validation. They handed out a freebie on a platter. It's a shame the show didn't take more advantage of it but that doesn't mean fandom can't.

Shinjirofag, if you're here, would you want me to post the husbando-portrait you asked for in the WWD tomorrow, or just wait for a new thread here?
I've finished Shinjiro, Vincent and Nezumi so far, Kaiba and Bruno need shading.

I was going to bed but mods just deleted a perfectly good Moomin thread and it done riled me.

>low table with vinyl player and vintage lamp, etc.
This is the kind of shit I'd love to set up. Do you have somewhere you arrange him normally? I was thinking if I ever got a figure I'd make a doll's house box of some kind for it, but it'd be hard to keep people from knocking everything down.

>I would read your text walls any day
What's this flattery? You damn flatterer you, enabling me with your flattery. It's not like I'm grateful or anything!
>People joke about him panicking and losing it which is Uncool
I never thought of it that way, and I must have been completely oblivious to criticisms like that when I was younger. I always assumed it was one of those things where something's horrible so people start awkwardly laughing and trying to make light of it to keep the true realisation from their minds. That's how black humour is supposed to alleviate grim situations anyway.

I feel kind of shitty that I went through so many phases of playing along with death jokes myself, even making them. It was a self-degrading technique introducing his series or that I liked him, since it's a shameful thing to like especially on /a/. The best way to sell it was on the bad quality of the anime and how much fun you could have with that - and I still keep screencaps of the livestream where I joked around with people, I honestly do enjoy affectionately taking the piss in that manner since that's how I enjoy a lot of series but some things I can see were awkward. I'd feel protective/defensive over them now. There's a weird feeling of disconnect looking at some of those jokes; I started out feeling blank to them but pleased anyone cared that much for his series, then offended and wanting to shout about it, then this weak laugh came to the surface. The joke is the joke existing at all. Goes round in my head sometimes like it won't leave. Knowing it's wrong makes it worse.

Cont. 'cos 7am venting is what I do most. Not best. Most.
The bit which gets me now I've been through these thought processes is that it's fans who made these. One of them proudly uses it as their avatar on every new manga release and update. That's probably why it got so lodged in my mind; I can't help looking at his smiling face then seeing those words around it. I've described the fans before, they call him their gay baby son and all that jazz, and make a big deal over wanting to protect him. They make essays and collages about how realistic his mental health issues are and talk about relatable symptoms and behaviours, adding labels and diagnosis. Yet these very same people are happy to make jokes about it. Yeah, he's a fictional character. Nobody real got physically hurt through his story being told. But when you see realism in a character's suffering and talk about the seriousness of it, adding your own interpretations and personal activism, don't turn around and make jokes about suicide rates amongst homosexuals and the rape of children by religious or medical professionals. Don't make jokes about suicide or rape concerning anything as detailed as this. Have some damn empathy as human beings. And let's please also stop adding to the shame of liking a shoujo manga by being embarrassing like this. We're older and we know better now.

Men from the continent know to eat with their drink so I believe that.

>shares one big, central, in-your-face trait with my husbando, because I'm that fucking predictable.
I reassessed the crushes I had in school, and the 3D chars I was unreasonably attracted to. An older man who played a bumbling fool but had surprising skills, people who were kind to everyone no matter who even if it put them at odds with bullies, fucking trench coats and wearing useless glasses to look smart. I remember trying to get a friend into his series by saying he was just like this guy. Oh no.

Congrats!
It's very hard to tell how much fanart he has. Most of it has been lost to time or lack of scans of the magazine's reader's segments. Pixiv and Twitter don't have much activity. You can count the number of current fanartists, Japanese and Western, on one hand, two if some of them wander back once in a year. I was hopeful when a new volume was released that there'd be more. There were maybe 3-4 newcomers in the tags, one was awful, and they vanished in one post. A couple Western fans have been pumping out far more works than anyone as of late, but it just means entire Pixiv pages of muted thumbnails. It's a constant hang up of mine that there's so many obvious concepts that don't have fanart, but I could make a collage of headshots facing left or right.

I have never made it through a single episode of the dub. I have joked several times that I would do it for the sake of shitposting and making webms to share the worst parts, but I've never had the willpower to actually do it. I don't think Dan Green will ever be representative of him in my mind. Maybe of the really wonky frames in the anime that were used in trailer clips so I saw them with that voice a few times, but that guy seems oddly blander than the one I screencap 15 frames of in a row. Weird that. Oh also he's a bit of a dick during the suicide scene according to people who've seen them. No thanks.

There are some series where I had the dub first, and I get how that can be. Japanese will always end up higher or lower than you expect based on English voices, so it immediately feels different. Video game dubs are fortunately fairly well produced (ignore the Playstation era), so issues of canonity are less present.

Deserved it.

I don't have room-- but I had a dream last night where for some reason after it acknowledged my name several times I went 'yeah well I'm him and I can teleport', and just was. This isn't the first time I've used his powers as a get out free card.

Some of it with fans might be as a coping mechanism, maybe I'm just misreading things and assuming the worst. Maybe it's just the way these same people turn him into their gay neurotic crybaby that makes it worse, the people who love him still treating him like this, that drives me a little crazy. Yours is in a much different situation with his mental health issues tied in, but the result is a little similar, if that's not too presumptuous to say. I understand the reflex to try and laugh it off, I just can't do it myself, and I'm too biased and protective of him to tolerate it well. It feels stupid getting that riled up over a fictional man getting murdered but, like you said, I wish the fans showed a little more empathy.
>I honestly do enjoy affectionately taking the piss in that manner since that's how I enjoy a lot of series
Even if I do genuinely love his series, I've done the same thing, I'm not judging anyone for that.
>the shame of liking a shoujo manga
This makes me sad. Shoujo can be a lot of fun.

I probably had more to say but I can't think of shit right now, I'm sorry.
