Y’all don’t even know how embarassed I am about the title of this article. No seriously, I’m glad this is only a seasonal thing. Why do you guys even like these? Sigh.
So the Summer season is slowly coming to an end and, to me personally, this season has been, well, surprising. Not because it’s overwhelmingly good, but because it’s overwhelmingly female-oriented in contrast to, well, always ever. With that said, I guess I’ll move on with this painfully awkward list of pretty boys:
1. Handa Seishu from Barakamon
I love my flamboyant 2D boys, but, if any of these guys were somehow real, I think I’d want to punch them in the gut for being arrogant assholes. I think I’d feel a lot more attracted to a person like Handa than any other. I mean, he has black hair and he’s cute as hell. Except that I can’t cook either.
2. Slaine from Aldnoah.Zero
In an anime where every character looks as dull if not duller than the next, the not-so generic design of Slaine is very refreshing to see as, y’know, he actually has an ounce of emotion in his face. Also I’m a sucker for broken characters like him. I don’t even care, Slaine is ma boy.
3.Kou from Ao Haru Ride.
I’m gonna be straight with you: I really, really don’t like the Ao Haru Ride anime, despite it being the exact same thing as the manga I loved so much. Maybe I was just feeling in love at the time or maybe it was the fact that I didn’t have to hear the characters painful and irrelevant inner dialogues, but whatever. Kou is cute, he’s the type of character I’d gush over if I was, like, 10.
4. Sebastian Michaelis from Kuroshitsuji: Book Of Circus.
I wonder why Sebastian is as iconic as he is. Is it because he’s handsome and can do literally anything? Is it the sex scenes? Probably. Whatever it is, I’m in.
5. Uta from Tokyo Ghoul.
Uta looks like a character I’d design on a very bad day and yet somehow he’s all I ever see on my Tumblr dash on Thursdays. What’s up with that? Is it because he’s cute or is it because he’s Skrillex, the ghoul version?
6. Literally everyone from Gekkan Shoujo Nozaki-kun.
7. The Entire Cast Of Free! Eternal Summer.
