naw, naw! She’s one of the most horrible love interest for main character that Ive ever seen. she’s soo shallow and useless, and lacking in depth. I wouldn’t mind her soo much if she actually had a personality and depth…
Kyoko next! (I think the contrast between Iemitsu and Tsuna is interesting because I can't imagine that Tsuna would ever love mafia the institution more than the people in it. Anime seems to like having deadbeat fathers to make the main chars look stronger I guess, but it really isn't necessary.)
yeah I agree with you on that, I think maybe a lot of authors put deadbeats dads in due to maybe their own childhoods? maybe? who knows.
Kyoko-absoloutely not. Right next to haru I couldn’t think of another character in this series that I hate with such a burning passion.XD She’s completely useless and is nothing but a shallow moeblog love interest for tsuna. Her character irritates me to the EXTREME!-lol reyohei) Her character has absolutely no depth whatsoever other than to stand on the sidelines lookin pretty. She’s boring, dull and even though she serves as tsuna’s motivation in the beginning for becoming stronger or saving the world or whatever, she does little to support him. I really hope that by the time this series ends, tsuna falls in love with someone else-I ship tsuna/chrome by the way.) someone who knows about the mafia, and what she’s getting into. she has not clue about the mafia world nor would she serve as a good wife to the boss of a criminal syndicate. Not to mention she has never even “kissed” tsuna let alone her short interactions with him. This series would be much better without her…
Yamamoto. (I see that you have an S80 doujin reblogged, which is very relevant to my interest.)
lol well expect to see more of that in the future! I love yama! he’s my third favorite in all of KHR! I love his optimistic demeanor, and how he’s determined to be there for his friends and protect everyone he cares for most. I love his interactions with all the characters, especially squalo. I love how he’s able to bring out squalo’s tsundere side. I think squalo’s somewhat intrigued by yamamoto as a swordsman; how he’s able to be such a great swordsman yet still have a heart and choose not to kill. He’s a great balance and took a “healthier” approach to his path a as a swordsman as oppose to cutting off his own hand. (by the way I ship S80 and I think he would offer a great balance to yamamoto and bring out squalo’s better traits. I just wish we could learn more about yama’s backstory and possibly about his mom.
DINO!!!!! bucking bronko! I love dino! Right behind squalo’s he’s one of my favorite characters in Reborn! Well to start off, he’s undeniably handsome, second he’s a lovable moron and third he’s got a big heart. I love how clumsy he is and how despite how handsome he is he treats everyone with respect and cares for everyone. I loved his past with squalo and how he saved squalo after the rain battle and in TYL as well. It’s honestly hard for me to fathom how people can manage to hate his character. He’s got depth-(well more so in the light novels and drama CD), and even if we don’t get to see his character from other dimensions he’s still a got a good personality that shines through. One thing I don’t like about his character is that amano is just using him as nothing more of a fanservice vehicle as of lately. Dammit Amano! there’s more to him than that!!!!!!
MM? well to start off honestly I don’t really care for MM. The only time she’s ever been useful was back in the kokouyo arc when she fought bianchi. Her character to me serves no purpose other than to be a female fill in in mukuro’s group. To me she’s the equivalent of haru or kyoko, just a meaner bitchier version.
really unpopular opinion about her- her slapping chrome was well deserved. I feel honestly M.M was right to do so. Chrome needs to toughen up instead of always moping around, being a damsel in distress or people pitying her all the time.
I CONCUR. I really don’t know why the fandom insists that he’s just a horrible villain that will destroy everything if he gets the chance… It’s called a well rounded character. :D
exactly! I dont know why this is the case either! I mean especially for what he went through as a child to grow up and and be the way he is now, he’s pretty well rounded as well I must say! plus I don’t know why the fandom jumps on him and not Xanxus-who is no where near being well rounded. plus some of his evil deeds such as (almost killing the 9th boss) far exceed most of what mukuro’s done!
I love Mukuro! he’s right up there with my top faves.. mukuro’s a very interesting character and the great kind of anti-hero at best! I find his past especially interesting, him ken and chikusa all went through hell during their early childhoods; being experimented on and such..this contributed to his fall into insanity and taking possessing peoples bodies (lancia) to take revenge. Mukuro at first may seem like the mercurial jerkass who’s a ruthless sadist and doesn’t give the slightest damn about others, but he has a heart. he’s saved ken, chikusa and chrome’s lives on various occasions. They are family to him and even though he puts their lives in danger or uses chrome for his own selfish needs; it’s all just a front for their protection and the greater good. He also has not possessed tsuna’s body yet-personally I believe it is because he has some faith in tsuna to be a good mafia boss and to not make the same mistakes as the past vongola. Mukuro may be shrewd, cunning, ruthless at times but he obviously has a good side that most of the fandom just seems to miss.
I know this is kinda random but what do you think of akira amano as a writer?
lol this isn’t random at all!!
I don’t want to offend any fans but Akira Amano is a shit writer. She just cannot write a cohesive story. I’m PRAYING she teams up with an actual writer for her next project. Reborn had SO MUCH POTENTIAL. I love it to bits but it’s a god damn train wreck. XD The amount of plot holes and under developed characters is really astounding. Even most main characters are left underdeveloped. It’s such a tragedy! I love most of her characters and it kills me to know we’ll probably NEVER get more information on a vast majority of them. I feel she caters much too heavily to the fanbase. I’ve noticed how she frequently works only characters who placed high in the popularity poll into her plot. Normally one could argue that this is good marketing, but I really feel her work suffers in the long run. Especially since most of the popular characters are FORCED into the current plot.
I think her weakest point is that she really didn’t know where she was going when she started Reborn. It was just a gag manga and then suddenly, (probably by some editors prompting) it became a battle manga. This would have been OK if her battles weren’t so ridiculous. It’s a pretty unpopular opinion, but I think the box weapons were a really stupid addition. I like the enchanted guns from earlier in the series. What was wrong with those? I thought that was great!
I REALLY wish she had taken a more “Gintama” route and woven both gag arcs and battle arcs into her story a little more…fluidly.
Her art is BEAUTIFUL though. I’ve never seen anything quite like her style. It takes all the aspects I like in Shoujo and merges everything I like about shounen. It’s really something to behold. I also REALLY REALLY love most of her characters/character designs (I’ve probably already stated this but it is late so forgive me. XD )
I tried to make this as un-mean as I possibly could but I genuinely feel this way. I LOVE REBORN SO MUCH so it just hurts to see such a poopy plot most of the time.
*This soo much! EXACTLY how I feel through and through…
Eternity means lasting forever, right? For years, decades, centuries, millennia, eons, and on and on. My life may be just a moment, but eternity means that this moment lasts billions of billions of years, without end. I want eternity.
But… I wonder if the flowers themselves are happy, being forced to last so long. Eternity doesn’t exist in this world, does it? It’s just that one could think that a heart that longs for eternity is beautiful.
*Even Xanxus character has somewhat grown on me and Ive started taking more of a liking to his character(TYL Xanxus). But his character as whole, especially during the present I just can’t bring myself to like no matter how hard I try. I understand his reasons for doing what he did and they were somewhat justified, however I still see his reasons behind wanting to be the 10 really petty and insignificant… Quiet frankly though many of his fangirls may not admit this, but I have always for the most part liked him for superficial reasons-which we all know… not to mention he’s a complete heartless prick..
